Mondays are Dark

Sorry it's a little late this week... but hey, it's still morning.

If You Build it, They Will Come...If You Fix It, They Will Stay
The Sun Sentinel breaks the news that the Broward Center for the Performing Arts is planning a major renovation.
"The original design of the performing arts center was a home run so we want to bring it back to a state-of-the-art condition and make it a new theater all over again," said Fort Lauderdale lawyer John Milledge, who is chairman of the Broward Center's board of directors.
Besides renovating the theatre spaces, they are planning on adding restaurants, bars, a lounge, as well as classroom and workshop space, to allow the Center to expand its educational mission.
"This is looking ahead at what the Broward Center should be for the next 10 to 20 years," said Kelley Shanley, the center's chief executive officer.
Joe Adler Interview
Miami Today staff writer Zachary Ferguson talked with GableStage artistic director Joe Adler about his work, and the proposal to take over the Grove.  And while the Today version of the story is locked behind a subscription wall, we're fortunate that Channel 2's uVu has it on video.

Speaking of Interviews...
The Cultist speaks with Ken Clement and his role in The Haircut.
Did this character even have a name?

I think he was just called The Barber. I didn't give him a name. I was having too much fun trying to give him some strange physical thing. Like he sort of didn't walk right. Something was a little bit off with him. How he spoke. How he moved. It was fun.

The Big Three
Conundrum Stages talks about getting started.

The Thing about Critics
The Guardian has an excellent piece on the shortcomings of theatre criticism as it's being practiced today.
"Want to read an in-depth review of a star performance? Turn to the sports pages."
New Theatre's New Season
The Drama Queen has the skinny on New Theatre's 2011-12 play line-up.

3 Days of Rain, 2 Generations
The Miami New Times examines Three Days of Rain, now playing at The Promethean Theatre Company.

A Look Back
The Palm Beach Daily News recaps the past year in the performing arts.
Because all presentations are ephemeral, the best we can do in these pages is look back on the season’s finest and remember.
Personal Reflection
The Playground muses on all she's learned in her first year of study at The Boston Conservatory.
...I will forever be attracted to the theatre for its brash exploration of the feats and failures of humanity. Turning the light on in the darkest corner, and starting the conversation on the unspoken.
The Royal Poinciana Playhouse is still closed.  The Shiny Sheet reports that the state Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of the lower court's ruling that the referendum pursued by Preserve Palm Beach violates the state constitution.
A lower court supported the town’s position that the proposed referendum was unconstitutional because it would have imposed a referendum on a development order pertaining to property that was five parcels or smaller, which is forbidden by state law.
