It's the busiest time of the year in the theatre scene, so we're a little behind on all the news and reviews this week. We'll be posting a bunch of reviews, as well as a comprehensive list of season line-ups, but in the meantime, here's your Monday reading list.
No, not his boxers. Sheesh, what's with you people? Florida Theater On Stage rounds up news on The Carbonell Awards, Urinetown at Barry University, a couple of play readings, and Andrew Kato's promotion.
Speaking of Andrew Kato
TheatreMania also tells us about his promotion; from artistic director to producing artistic director.
Speaking of the Carbonell Awards
Broadway World gives us background on the award, the ceremony, and some of the history behind it. ArtsAmerica also tells us about the award and the organization, and includes the full list of this year's nominees. The Carbonell Awards Ceremony will be held April 2nd at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
Jupiter Theater Returns to its Roots
Burt Reynold's built the Jupiter Theatre, and then brought in all kinds of stars to play leading roles; often, they'd never performed live on stage before. Palm Beach ArtsPaper talks with the leads in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's production of Hello, Dolly; Broadway veteran Gary Beach, and Vickie Lewis, who was a mainstay on the television comedy NewsRadio. All that's missing is dinner. And dessert service; they turned out a mean Key Lime Pie back in the day.
City Theatre Branches Out
BroadwayWorld reports that City Theatre is teaming up with Orlando Repertory Theatre to produce The Brand New Kid, adapted from the children's book by Katie Couric. It will be playing at the Kravis Center in June.
In Case You Missed It
Come Fly Away played last week at the Kravis Center, but if you didn't catch it there, The Miami Herald reminds us that it's opening tomorrow at the Arsht Center.
