Mondays are Dark

Once again, this Monday isn't actually all that dark, because it's SUMMER THEATRE FEST!  This week, Main Street Players participates in the South Florida Theatre League's new play reading series with tonight's staged reading of The Road To Remsenburg, by Carol White.

Main Street Players is a community theater company that operates a small space in Miami Lakes, aptly named The Main Street Playhouse.  That space is also serves as the primary venue for The Alliance Theatre Lab, a professional non-Equity theatre company.  Last week's reading at the Broward Center was a great success, and we hope that trend continues.

If you're looking to Get In Bed With The Arts, you'll have your opportunity this Thursday at GableStage.  And you still have a chance to enjoy a free night of theater in July.

And now, your Monday reading list:

Speaking of Play Readings...
The Miami Herald reports that GableStage will be staging a reading of Richard Janaro's Evicted tonight, a fresh take on Shakespeare's King Lear.  The same article also mentions that south Florida playwrightt Mario Diament's A Report on the Banality of Love is being stage in Paris, France.  (Yes, it's been translated into French.)  The play premiered at the defunct Promethean Theatre Company back in 2009.

Speaking of Staged Readings...
Florida Theater On Stage reports that Palm Beach Dramaworks and The Theatre at Arts Garage will be staging "concert versions" of musicals.  Dramaworks will be staging some familiar shows from the American musical canon, but predictably, Louis Tyrrell at Arts Garage will be staging new works.

And As Long As We're On The Subject...
Broadway World reports that Parade Productions is staging a reading of a new play by Michael Leeds. The Gift will be performed on July 1 at The Studio at Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center.

Looking for Space?
In case you've been thinking that theaters going dark is a south Florida phenomena, The New York Times reports that there's an unusually high number of vacancies on Broadway right now.
