Beginning May 7, the Bass Museum will inaugurate "The Mummy Project," an ongoing exhibit containing a rare Egyptian painted wood sarcophagus and mummy from the Late Period, Dynasty XXV-XXVI, 712-525 B.C. Edward Bleiberg, curator of Egyptian art at the Brooklyn Museum, has been hired to consult on translation, interpretative materials, installation design, and installing objects borrowed from that museum.
On May 12, the Actors' Playhouse will launch the world premiere of South Florida playwright Michael McKeever's Unreasonable Doubt, a new play that offers a penetrating look at the American justice system and how it sometimes fails the society it is meant to protect. Revenge and redemption intersect in this thought-provoking drama. Unable to touch the man who savagely raped and murdered his daughter, Ty Bosworth does the next best thing: He kidnaps and tortures the defense lawyer who put the killer back on the street.
