First, a notice to all theatrical producers: The calendar listings for theater have been moved to this section and will now be handled by yours truly. Please direct all information about upcoming shows to my attention and please -- get these in as early as possible. This fine publication works on approximately a two-week lead time, so if you want your show mentioned, you can't send the data in two days before it opens.
To readers, notice that all shows reviewed will in future weeks contains not only listing information, but a capsule commentary as well. This should further help to guide your viewing selections.
But enough about me and New Times. Far more important is the upcoming 5th annual AIDS Walk Miami scheduled for March 7, 1993, in which over 30 cultural organizations intend to participate in teams. One of these teams consists of the Theater League of South Florida, representing dramatic venues from Palm Beach to Monroe County. The walk kicks off at 10 in the a.m. with an opening ceremony at South Pointe Park on Miami Beach, will then proceed up Washington Avenue, around Lincoln Road Mall and finally return to South Pointe. Walkers benefit many South Florida AIDS organizations, including the largest service group: Health Crisis Network (HCN). Last year, about 8000 people put heel and toe to pavement for this more than worthwhile cause; this time, organizers like Amy Phillips and David Alt plan for even more. If you're interested in joining the theater team, or just strolling on your own, contact HCN at 754-4444.
Finally, if you have a day to spare, and enjoy classic musicals in the finest dinner theater atmosphere possible, head up I95 to the Jupiter Theatre.
It's pricey, the current offering (through February 14) is the dusty old Man of La Mancha, but the food and ambience truly excel, as does the production itself. For more information, call 407-746-5566.
