Mondays are Dark

It’s been awhile since we managed to get out our Monday reading list;  a combination of being short handed at the day job, resulting in extra workload at the height of a very busy season, and other projects sucking up scads of our available time.
But we’re back now.
A New Company Spins Off From Familiar Player
The Broward/Palm Beach New Times  and Broadway World talks with the folks involved in Primal Forces, a new company that seems to be under the umbrella of The Boca Raton Theatre Guild; their first project is David Mamet’s The Anarchist, playing at Andrews Living Arts Studio.
WinterStage is a Hot Prospect
One advantage to a hellaciously cold winter are all those Broadway and Off-Broadway; The Miami Herald fills us in on the WinterStage Series that is underway at the Parker Playhouse.
Will & Grace star Mullally performed last month, and the first play — Golda’s Balcony with Tovah Feldshuh — has come and gone. But the concerts, in which actor-pianist-radio host Seth Rudetsky accompanies and interviews the stars, continue at 8 p.m. Thursday with Smash star Hilty, followed by Tony Award winner LuPone on March 13. The next play features soap star Heather Tom in Vanities March 26 through 30, with That ‘70s Show mom Debra Jo Rupp playing sex therapist Ruth Westheimer in Becoming Dr. Ruth April 16 through 20.
South Florida’s Oldest Community Theatre Still Going
The Palm Beach ArtsPaper reviews the latest production from Delray Beach Playhouse;  Kaufman & Hart’s  You Can’t Take It With You. The play won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama,  just ten years before the theater was founded.
Florida Theater On Stage reports that Christopher Demos-Brown is one of six finalists for he Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award.
And Now For Something Completely Different
Broadway World fills us in on SPAMALOT, opening Friday at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theater.
No Cost Tickets?  Really?
HowRound presents the business case for Radical Hospitality, or No-cost Access to theatre.
BJ: What most people don’t realize is that for many nonprofit theaters, ticket sales cover a very small percentage of the budget as a whole, so when we shifted to Radical Hospitality, it was not really a huge budgetary shift.
When you put it THAT way, it doesn’t seem all that radical.
Solo Shows?
The Miami Herald talks to all the people involved in two different “solo” shows at the Lightbox at Goldman Warehouse .  You’ve just missed Deborah Sherman’s  Frida: Unmasked, but Thaddeus Phillips can be seen in 17 Border Crossings this Thursday.
Another Season Announced
Florida Theater On Stage takes a look at Palm Beach Dramawork’s next season.
