City Theatre and Island City Stage are proud to present the return of Shorts Gone Wild 2, South Floridaâ€™s hottest short play festival that celebrates the LGBT and Progressive communities, from August 7 â€“ September 7 at Empire Stage in Ft. Lauderdale.
Conceived and created by Island City Stage Artistic Director Andy Rogow and City Theatre Producing Artistic Director John Manzelli, Shorts Gone Wild 2 takes six actors, seven playwrights, five directors and a design team, and whips them up until they peak into eight short, provocative, funny and thoroughly entertaining plays with a LGBT bent. Winner of the 2014 Silver Palm Award for Best LGBT Theatre show, Shorts Gone Wild is the newest collaboration under City Theatreâ€™s SUMMER SHORTS FESTIVAL umbrella. Back by popular demand, Shorts Gone Wild 2 features brand new, never performed plays written by local South Florida playwrights.
