Mondays are Dark

Man, not a lot of articles this week.  Everyone took some time off for the Thanksgiving holiday or something.  Well, we did find a few articles,  and look for some reviews to hit in the next day or so.

This week's "dark" theater is Miami Beach's Byron Carlyle Theater, currently the beach home of the Stage Door Theater.  This 304 seat theater opened as a movie house in 1968, and was converted to a performing arts venue in 2004.  They're opening a show soon, but apparently they don't want anyone to know or they'd have put it up on their website.  Which is an odd marketing choice, to say the least.

Traditional Christmas Show
BroadwayWorld reports that Actors' Playhouse will be reviving its original adaptation of A Christmas Carol this Saturday, December 1.

Not A Traditional Christmas Show
South Florida Gay News tells us about It's a Fabulous Life, opening next week at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

Song and Dance Man
The Palm Beach Artspaper reports that Jupiter Theater has added something new to the venerable Music Man; dance.
Known for Willson’s syncopated rhythms and trip-hammer lyrics, the show has never been considered a strong dance show. But, says choreographer Shea Sullivan who is collaborating again with director Mark Martino (Crazy For You) at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, “It is now. It makes perfect sense to me that the music man moves this town through music and dance and movement.”
Checking In
BroadwayWorld is still collecting votes for the 2012 BWW South Florida Regional Awards.  It's a little weird because they're included Vero Beach as part of South Florida.  It's actually distorting results under Best Original/New Work.
