A Round-Heeled Woman chronicles the coital adventures of Jane Juska, a retired school teacher who hasnt had sex in 30 years. Shes a late baby boomer looking for a little boom-boom, so she places a personal ad in the New York Review of Books. It reads: Before I turn 67, next March, Id like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me. Based on a true story, the overwhelming response to the ad inspired a book, which playwright and director Jane Prowse eventually adapted for the stage. The play, which explores Janes complicated and comedic relationships, contains explicit scenes.
For its South Florida run, producers secured a stellar cast, highlighted by multiple Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Sharon Gless as frisky Jane. You may recognize Gless from her work in Cagney & Lacey, Nip/Tuck, Queer as Folk, and, most recently, Burn Notice. Joining Prowse and Gless is an impressive roster of local talent: Antonio Amadeo, Steven Anthony, Kim Ostrenko, and Laura Turnbull. If youve never been to the Biltmore Hotels GableStage, its an absolute must.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Dec. 30. Continues through Jan. 30, 2010
