Mondays are Dark

Things are starting to pick up a little bit; we know that a lot of companies are in rehearsal for shows that will be opening across South Florida in the next few weeks.
Here’s your Monday reading list:
Happy Tenth!
Conundrum Stages is now in its tenth season, and it’s celebrating with another edition of The Ghost Light Series of play readings.  You can read about it in Florida Theater On Stage, and the Sun-Sentinel interviews Conundrum’s founder and artistic director, Kevin Johnson.
Broadway comes to South Beach
Broadway World fills us in on the 2015 South Beach Broadway series at The Colony Theater.  Among the stars is Billy Porter, who played the voice of Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors at Actors’ Playhouse back in 2002. He won the Tony award for his performance as Lola in Kinky Boots.
MTC Takes On The Classics
The Miami Herald reports that the Miami Theatre Center will be staging their own adaptations of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler and Geoge Axelrod’s The Seven Year Itch.  Their work on Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard garnered much critical praise.
Actor Directs
The Palm Beach Post interviews local actor Jeffery Bruce, who directed The Subject Was Roses, which opened last week at Evening Star Productions.  The show features a face familiar to Palm Beachers:  it starts Alan Gerstel, who was an anchor on WPEC-TV not so long ago.
