    Play It as It Lays

    Despite the weekend's steady rain, more than 50 people join me as I wade into the Hollywood Boulevard Theatre on a recent Sunday night. After reaching into soaked pockets and purchasing five-dollar tickets, we quickly fill up the rows of the tiny sto...

    Chairman of the Boards

    Living up to his reputation as a consummate gentleman, Bill Hindman asks for permission to loosen his tie as he settles into our booth at a little out-of-the-way Chinese restaurant near Dadeland. I find it amazing he is even wearing a tie during this...

    If the Shoe Fits

    When High Button Shoes premiered on Broadway in 1947, its name and 1913 setting conjured nostalgic images of more carefree days. Its title still brings to mind visions of a bygone era, and one yearns for the golden age of musical comedy when boy wooe...

    Prophet and Loss

    Coming hard on the heels of New Theatre's stylistically impressive but emotionally aloof Angels in America Part I: Millennium Approaches, the playhouse's humanizing production of Tony Kushner's challenging sequel, the three-hour Part II: Perestroika,...

    The Little Shop That Could

    A confession: Before the curtain goes up on any musical production, I check out the number of songs in each act; if the show turns out to be a turkey I can start the countdown till the final curtain. During the intermission to Little Shop of Horrors,...

    Kiss and Tell

    Even though he was actually born on July 3, legendary Broadway showman George M. Cohan (1878-1942) didn't let the matter of a few hours stop him from proclaiming Independence Day his birthday. Immortalized by Hollywood's Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) an...

    When the Art Starts

    The summer doldrums have taken their toll on the South Florida art scene. Most local galleries and museums, it seems, have been on vacation -- or might as well have been. With few culturally minded out-of-towners to cater to and with Miami art aficio...

    Spoof Positive

    The sky was as dark as an actress's roots when I pulled into the lot of Fort Lauderdale's Studio Theatre, where the newly formed Actors' Project has set up shop. For its first move on the local scene, the company is flexing its muscles with the music...

    Shake and Not Stirred

    Looking for something different, I turned to the movie listings. Bad idea. Speed 2, Batman and Robin, George of the Jungle: a bevy of tired sequels and spinoffs that sent me fleeing back to the theater capsules, where I opted for Shakespeare. Ahhhh, ...

    Winged Victory

    For decades, when theater folk used the word angels, they were referring to those rare investors who could miraculously save productions with their financial backing, but whose good will proved to be as difficult to attain as divine providence. In 19...

    Major Percussion

    Local residents often lament Miami's lack of culture: no stellar museum collections, a dearth of first-run, first-rate theater, frequent snubs by rock and pop stars who bypass us on their U.S. tours, and so on. But while many sit and bitch about our ...

    Backstage Passes

    A Beach Too Far
