Mondays are Dark

Sorry for the delay- we've been fighting off a summer cold here at The Scene.  But here's your Monday reading list:

Dinner and a Show
The Miami Theatre Examiner reports that Actors' Playhouse has teamed up with Ortanique and Anacapri to offer a dinner and show package.

On The Boards
Conundrum Stages is fundraising for its new alternative theatre festival.

On The Beach
The Drama Queen reports that Stage Door Theatre is opening the first of the shows they are presenting at the Byron Carlysle Theatre in Miami Beach; SUDS goes into previews on July 29, and will open the following week.  The play is scheduled to run through September 4th.
Also, a new company called Teatro en Broadway is presenting a Spanish version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Rim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Dade County Auditorium.

Living Dead Comes To Life
BroadwayWorld reports that Promethean Theatre's upcoming production of Song of the Living Dead is the first since the play premiered in Atlanta in 2008.  Hopefully, history will repeat; this show broke box office records for Dad's Garage Theatre Company.

More from Mad Cat
Mad Cat Theatre Company opens its next play on August 19.  BroadwayWorld has the skinny on So My Grandmother Died, Blah Blah Blah, a new play by Paul Tei.

Meanwhile... Coconut Grove, The Grove is still closed, according to the Coconut Grove Grapevine.
Sarnoff said that the current board, lead by Shelly Spivak, has not met for over three years, in fact, when he asked Shelly to come down to speak about the playhouse, her reply was something like, "You want me to drive all the way down from Broward for that?"
With a board like that, it's no wonder the place closed.
