The summer theater season is starting to heat up, as GableStage and Actors’ Playhouse open their summer shows, and Palm Beach Dramaworks opens its next concert version of a well-known but rarely-produced musical.
Monday will bring the latest entry in the Theatre League’s Summer Theatre Fest Reading Series!
This week is another double-head: New Light Theatre will be reading Wendy White’s Roses are Blind at Empire Stage, while Actors’ Playhouse will be staging a reading of Juan C. Sanchez’s Dead By Night at The Miracle Theater. It’s also an opportunity to see some of the decorated umbrellas that theatre companies are doing as part of the festival. And you have an opportunity for free chocolate.
Here's what’s playing on the scene this weekend:
Actors’ Playhouse opens Mid-Life 2! (The Crisis Continues) through August 17, 2014. As the title suggests, this is the long-awaited sequel to that blockbuster hit Midlife: The Crisis Musical.
