Mondays are Dark

Sorry for the delay; we use ScribeFire to assemble our blog posts, and this weekend they decided to push out a new version that doesn't actually, well, work.  At the same time, they labeled the previous version so it wouldn't install on our current web-browser, so it's taken some time to work out a "downgrade" so we can get back to blogging.  All fixed now; hail Firefox and its Nightly Tester Tool plug-in.

Big Week
This is the week that the old Florida Theater is reborn once again as a legitimate stage, the new home of Palm Beach DramaWorksThe Shiny Sheet announces the ribbon cutting.  Florida On Stage has pictures of the new marquee.

No, it's not a Charlie Sheen reference; The Miami Herald covers Mosaic Theatre's upcoming production of Lombardi, the biographical play about the football coach who declared "Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing!"  And the Stunned-Senseless, um, Sun-Sentinel interviews Ray Abruzzo, who will play the legendary coach.

Interview with the Playwright
Florida Theater On Stage spoke with Christopher Demos-Brown, whose Captiva opened this past weekend to critical raves.  Zoetic Stage is presenting it at the Arsht Center.

Missed Opportunity
The Drama Queen laments the fact that the local theatre community missed participating in a nationwide reading of Standing on Ceremony, a collection of short plays dealing with gay marriage.

Speaking of Gay Theatre
The Miracle Theatre Examiner asks if there's an interest in experimental gay theater.

Speaking of Experiments
The Miracle Theatre Examiner also notes that Let's Go Science opens next week at The Parker Playhouse.  It's part of The Broward Center's Smart Stage Matinees educational plays for kids.

If you've been wondering what Tally Sessions (Urinetown, Beauty & The Beast, The Full Monty at Actors' Playhouse, The Spitfire Grill at Florida Stage) has been up to, check out Broadway World.

Speaking of Beauty and the Beast
Broadway World reminds us that the national tour of Disney's Beauty and the Beast opens at The Broward Center next week.
