¿Extraña ir al teatro? ¡Nosotros también! ¿Prefiere obras contemporáneas o los clásicos? Pues ahora puede disfrutar de todas ellas, y lecturas de textos de grandes autores, desde su sofá favorito.

Únase a nosotros para volver a disfrutar del clásico de Harold Pinter, “El Amante,” desde el confort y la seguridad de su casa. Esta breve pieza teatral intenta descubrir las relaciones más profundas de dos seres inmersos en una relación amorosa insatisfactoria, que los lleva a buscar sucesivos amantes. La obra es una reflexión sobre el amor, la pareja, los compromisos amorosos y la manera de reinventar las relaciones. Inmersa en un juego perverso, la pareja inventa, por aburrimiento, juegos de seducción que terminarán confundiendo la realidad con la ficción y los precipita hacia un inesperado final. Con las actuaciones de Marilyn Romero y Julio Rodríguez, bajo la dirección de Pedro Balmaseda.

Las Lecturas Dramatizadas serán en español. En colaboración con MarGi Happenings y gracias al apoyo del Departamento de Asuntos Culturales del Condado de Miami-Dade y del Estado de la Florida. Este evento es accesible para todos y no es apto para menores. Si necesita solicitar alguna información, comuníquese con el Koubek Center: 305.237.7750.

Miss going to the theatre? We do too! Do you prefer the classics or contemporary plays? Now you can enjoy both, as well as selected texts from great authors, from the comfort of your favorite couch!

Join us to revisit the classic work by Harold Pinter, “El Amante,” all from the comfort and safety of your home. This short play attempts to discover the deepest relationships of two beings immersed in an unsatisfactory love relationship, which leads them to search for successive lovers. The work is a reflection on love, the couple, commitments of love, and the way to reinvent relationships. Immersed in a perverse game, the couple invents, out of boredom, seduction games that will end up confusing reality with fiction and rushing them towards an unexpected end. With performances by Marilyn Romero and Julio Rodríguez, under the direction of Pedro Balmaseda.

These stage readings will take place in Spanish. In collaboration with MarGi Happenings, and thanks to the support of the Cultural Affairs Department of Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB!), a nonprofit volunteer-based arts organization committed to supporting, sustaining and enriching the arts in Broward County, will present its Spring Luncheon and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 10, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The luncheon will feature special guest speaker Lourdes Lopez, artistic director of Miami City Ballet. A Q & A with the company’s dancers will follow the presentation.
Lourdes Lopez was recently named one of “The Most Influential People in Dance Today” by Dance magazine. She became artistic director of Miami City Ballet in 2012, bringing with her a nearly 40-year career in dance, television, teaching and arts management. Under Lopez’s direction, Miami City Ballet has become one of the country’s premier ballet companies.

As a soloist and principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Lopez danced for two legends of the art form, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. Lopez is a former WNBC-TV cultural arts reporter and senior faculty member and director of student placement, student evaluation and curriculum planning at New York’s Ballet Academy East. She served on the dance faculty of Barnard College and guest taught at numerous dance institutions and festivals in the United States. In 2002, she became the executive director of the George Balanchine Foundation, and subsequently co-founded The Cuban Artists Fund, which supports Cuban and Cuban-American artists in their endeavors. In 2007 she received an award from the American Immigration Law Foundation honoring Cuban Americans for their accomplishments and contributions to American society. Lopez also co-founded Morphoses with Christopher Wheeldon in 2007 — a New York-based dance company aiming to revitalize dance through innovative collaborations with important artists from the worlds of music, visual arts, design, film and fashion; and by inviting younger and broader audiences to engage in and actively experience dance.

In 2014 Lopez was elected to serve on the Ford Foundation’s board of trustees, marking the first time an artist was elected to serve on its board and in 2011, she received the prestigious Jerome Robbins Award for her years in dance. She has served as a dance panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts.

An Unforgettable Evening of NON-STOP LAUGHS for Single, Divorced, or Devoted Couples! (See this show before it heads to OFF-BROADWAY)
“A Funny show about Marriage & Relationships. Go see it!” (Ray Romano – Everybody Loves Raymond)
Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel has major commitment issues as the love of his life has just broken up with him on Valentine’s Day! Sensing his own mortality he decides to revisit the scene of all his romantic disasters with a Special Visitor who mentors him on the true meaning of commitment.

And with that decision, Fogel brings you his autographical tale of a comedian’s Quixote quest to finding and surrendering to the one woman who can transform his life: Fogel’s hysterical and critically acclaimed multi-media solo show, ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST! is Directed by Academy Award Nominee and Three-Time Emmy Award Winner CHAZZ PALMINTERI (A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects, Bullets Over Broadway)

Fogel laments to his audience: “The longest relationship I’ve ever had in my entire life… is with Alexa’s Amazon!”

Young or old, divorced or married…if you’ve ever been single (and that’s everyone) and want to experience (again) the feeling of finding that special person to spend the rest of your life with, then you’ll want to fasten your seat belt for 75 minutes of non-stop laughs with Peter Fogel’s ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST!

Miami Art Zine says “… A hilarious cross between “Men Are From Mars/Women Are From Venus and “Defending the Caveman!”

The NY Post says… “the single’s man, single man… who tells such hilarious stories about being single in the city… one wants to go out and find him a suitable mate!”

The Palm Beach Arts Post… “Fogel’s ingratiating delivery and inclusive approach to the subject, plus some genuinely funny observations, make ’Til Death an entertaining evening out!”

“A hysterical look at the complexity of relationships, love, & marriage – proving you can find your soulmate at any age.” Dr. Diana Kirchner, Best Selling Author of “Love in 90 Days” CBS Morning Show, Good Morning America

Future My Love (2013), 97 minutes, Directed by Maja Borg
Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias in search of freedom. At the brink of losing the idealistic love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society? Carefully weaving a texture of archival footage, black-and-white Super 8 film, and color HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.

Cirque du Soleil is coming to Miami with the revival of Alegría, its most iconic production. From December 20, 2019 – January 26, 2020, audiences are invited under the Big Top next to Hard Rock Stadium to fall in love with timeless Alegría; a true Cirque du Soleil classic reinterpreted through today’s creative lens.

A production destined to change the history of the company, Cirque du Soleil first presented Alegría in April 1994, launching an emblematic show that was to win over more than 14 million spectators in 255 cities in 19 years of touring through the end of 2013. The show’s theme song, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1995 and continues to be a fan favorite, is the most listened-to Cirque du Soleil song on YouTube.

In light of its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil is revisiting its legendary Alegría through today’s lens—including new costumes and set design, a renewed acrobatic vocabulary, and new musical arrangements —to ensure it is as inspiring now as it was at the time of its creation in 1994. With its signature songs, stunning acrobatics, memorable characters and enchanting artistry that have helped define the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic, Alegría is the reincarnation of a classic, reinterpreted for the age, and rekindled to inspire fans—old and new alike.

More about Alegría
Beloved by fans around the world, Alegría (‘joy’ in Spanish) is returning to the Big Top once more to share its timeless story of resilience and hope. The classic power struggle of old-meets-new has been reinterpreted through today’s lens. Carried by an intangible wind of change, an emerging movement strives to shake the established order, instilling hope and renewal to bring light and harmony to their kingdom in decay. With its joyful spirit, Alegría is a vital, energizing force driven by a thirst for a brighter world.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.

Zins-Browne’s The Chaos Opera draws upon Glissant’s defense of chaos as a mechanism for embracing difference. The performance brings together voices from diverse musical traditions—R&B, bolero, death metal, rap, and opera—to explore how different voices might cohabitate in the same space without capitulating, assimilating, or forcing cohesion. Rather than the idealized harmonies of “fusion” music, it asks how different voices can maintain their opacity in relation to each other, and how such a cacophony might allow new forms, voices, and hybrid languages to emerge. The Chaos Opera will be performed by Dyna Edyne, Michale Grafals, Celeste Landeros, Niuvis Martin, and Nad Pitt.

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for “Best Play,” all elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley’s provocative play Doubt, A Parable, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty. Doubt, A Parable is blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, and a powerful drama that represents the eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences.

Cirque du Soleil returns to Sunrise with Corteo, their latest and most enchanting arena production 7/24/19 – 8/4/19

BB&T Center

Sunrise, Florida 33323

Cost: $59.00 – $190.00

Corteo, the latest and most enchanting Cirque du Soleil’s arena production is now touring in North America. The show will visit Sunrise at the BB&T Center Arena from July 24 to August 4, 2019 for a limited run of sixteen performances. This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, the show has been a great success and has amazed 8 million people in 19 countries on four continents.

Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.

The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by
quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The set curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the central curtains, which were hand painted, give a grandiose feel to the stage. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo.

The cast of Corteo includes 52 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.

Donna Shalala Center
1330 Miller Dr.,
Miami, Florida 33146
Website
Cost: $10

NAMI Miami-Dade County expects to attract thousands of people and seat close to 800 people at the 4th Annual Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival at the University of Miami’s Donna E. Shalala Center on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year’s festival will showcase six short films. The narratives behind these films will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower people. Following each short film, an individual with a lived experience of a mental health challenge will speak on the films’ topic for a few minutes providing further insight about the message behind each film.

This year’s lineup is comprised of films from a variety of talented directors, including a member of the International Cinematographers Guild, a multi-award-winning actor and Navy Veteran, and an award-winning filmmaker. The six films were chosen out of almost 200 submissions based on their compelling storytelling and way of educating and dispelling the myth behind mental illness. Submitted films were judged by film makers, clinicians, high school and college students, individuals with mental illness and their family members.

The 2019 lineup includes Terms of Us by director, writer, producer Roberto Sanchez, a Cuban born, Miami raised Navy Veteran who has a recurring role on Queen of the South. Additionally, Roberto will be speaking at the festival; Baby Steps from Los Angeles director, Eric Dyson; Misdirection by Carly Usdin, a University of Central Florida graduate with Miami ties, now an award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles; Reverie by Nick Markham; Saving Billy by Vickie Adams; and UkeLayla, directed and produced by a team of recent Miamians and graduates from the University of Central Florida.

“Films are a compelling storytelling form that connects with our deepest sensibilities, and research suggests that film festivals have a positive impact on stigma and recovery in mental illness. That’s why for the fourth consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness,” says Kathryn Coppola, Executive Director at NAMI Miami. “Together, we can spark the awareness that makes the difference in our society.” NAMI Miami’s goal is to “end the silence” and to start the conversation about mental health proving that recovery is possible.

Cannibal Desire responds to the powerful pulsions, longings and fantasies of a violence from another time. In this project, the dimension of power defines an ambition which aims at multiplying new sensations and experiences, free of any hierarchy and form of control. The impetus of cannibal desire thus becomes, for the Caribbean artists, a state of consciousness, a way to consider the world.

Through selected paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos, the curators Jean-Marc Hunt and Marie Vickles explore a poetic state of transe, similar to an unlimited fantasy with all sorts of possibilities. The exhibition Cannibal Desire was first shown in 2018 at the Fondation Clément in Martinique, focusing on emerging artists from Guadeloupe. Now travelling to Miami, the exhibition is expanding to artists from Martinique, French Guiana, Haiti, Mexico and Venezuela.

Miami New Drama Presents One Night in Miami…

A play about the night Cassius Clay became Muhammed Ali

WHAT: One Night in Miami…, a play by Kemp Powers

The night of February 25th, 1964, a young Cassius Clay emerges from the Miami Beach Convention Center as the World Heavyweight Boxing Champion. Against all odds, he’s defeated Sonny Liston and shocked the world of boxing. While crowds of people swarm Miami Beach’s hotspots to celebrate the match, Clay, unable to stay on the island because of Jim Crow-era segregation laws, spends the night at the Hampton House Motel celebrating with three of his friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke, and football icon Jim Brown. One Night in Miami… is a play that traces Cassius Clay’s journey to becoming the legendary Muhammad Ali, squarely centering Miami’s critical role as pivotal to the American Civil Rights Movement.

Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre proudly presents the long awaited return of the hit comedy The Big Bang. In this whirlwind musical, two writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived. Set in a borrowed Park Avenue apartment, this two-man circus runs through the entire history of the universe in a record 90 minutes. Playing all the roles and using the décor of the high-priced apartment to bring this over-the-top production to life, both actors will have their talents put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations.

This lecture-performance addresses the notion of “encounter” as essential to a politics and an aesthetics of the commons. By drawing from several philosophical and political traditions that have analyzed the ethics and politics of the encounter, and by invoking artistic propositions that bring into the world improbable events (particularly in performance art and experimental choreography) André Lepecki will consider how the event of encounter precipitates groundings for living away from the necropolitical logic of our current imperial, colonial and murderous neoliberal monohumanism.
André Lepecki is Professor and Chairperson in Performance Studies at New York University. He is editor of several anthologies on dance and performance theory, including Of the Presence of the Body (2004) and Dance (2012). An independent performance curator, he has created projects for Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw; the Hayward Gallery, London; Haus der Kunst, Munich; and the 2016 Biennale of Sydney. Lepecki is the author of Exhausting Dance: Performance and the Politics of Movement (2006, translated into ten languages) and Singularities: Dance in the Age of Performance (2016).

The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) will present “Our Time With Sondheim,” an inspiring evening of music from Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim, with special guest performances by Broadway and opera superstars Lisa Vroman and Martha Bartz. The Chorus with its very special guest stars will perform two shows that will pay tribute to the consummate American composer and lyricist known for more than a half-century for his contributions to musical theater.

Performances will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church located at 333 Tarpon Drive in Fort Lauderdale on Friday, March 16 at 8 pm and Sunday, March 18 at 4 pm.

Recognized by the great Cameron Mackintosh as “one of American Musical Theater’s most beautiful voices,” Harold Prince says that “few ladies today possess the exquisite voice, clarity and range of Lisa Vroman.”

Joining Vroman and the Chorus is opera titan Martha Bartz, an in-demand Mezzo Soprano direct from a performance at Lincoln Center in New York. She was the winner of the 2010 Classical Singer convention in NYC (Musical Theater), the 2008 NYC NATS competition and a finalist in the 2009 International Lotte Lehmann Cybersing competition.

Teatro Ojo/Hector Bourges/Patricio Villareal: Disorganizing Mimesis 3/10/18

Miami, Florida 33132

Cost: Free

The Mexico City-based group Teatro Ojo essays the possible dispositions and sequences of gestures, images, and machinations that sketch tensions within the texture of a “spectral contract” on which the figure of the Mexican nation-state is incessantly organized and disorganized—a contract plagued by “public secrets”: what we all know and yet we cannot utter. Bourges states the following about Disorganizing Mimesis: “Five images of a radical theatricality: a flayed/flayer god; a talking cross that incites a silent indigenous uprising that lasted a hundred years; a skeleton of the last Aztec emperor made from the bones of birds, deer, dogs, and a woman’s skull; the corpse of Emperor Montezuma talks to his people through a sinister act of ventriloquism; Subcomandante Marcos is unmasked by the Mexican government in 1995…and he turns out to be the son of a furniture dealer.”
Made up of Héctor Bourges, Karla Rodríguez, Patricio Villarreal, Laura Furlan, Gisela Cortés, and Emanuel Bourges, Teatro Ojo was founded in 2002 in Mexico City, where they still live and work. Their practice has shifted from conventionally theatrical territory to an expanded field that includes artworks, performances, and urban interventions. Collaborating with artists Santiago Sierra, Melanie Smith, Mario Bellatín, Juan José Gurrola, and others, the group questions ideas of memory, the city, violence, community, modernity, education, pre-language, and the post-human. Teatro Ojo’s most important projects include the installation Xipe Tótec, Ponte en Mi Pellejo (Put Yourself in My Shoes), at the 2012 Belluard Bollwerk International Festival, Fribourg, Switzerland, and Lo Que Viene (Forthcoming), a stage project at El Galeón Theater, INBA, Mexico City, also in 2012. Teatro Ojo’s work was also included in group exhibitions in 2014 at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid and at the Alhóndiga in Bilbao. In 2011, Teatro Ojo received the gold medal for best Theater Architecture and Performance Space in the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space.
Teatro Ojo is part of Living Together, a cross-disciplinary series of performance art, film and video screenings, talks, and workshops held in venues across the greater Miami area and reflecting the cultural, social, and political realities of how we live now.

MDC Wolfson Auditorium
300 NE 2nd Avenue,
Miami, Florida 33132

Cost: Free

In Out of the Shadows III, Jumana Emil Abboud asks “What do places speak of?” This audio-visual performance includes Palestinian folk-tales and traditional oral histories. These stories that inspire the artist have always emphasized the importance of relationships with the landscape and with sources of water. Evoking her Palestinian roots and the places to which she is deeply connected—Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea, and the Galilee—the artist uses music, poems, and drawings to weave together past and present, contemporary reality and the unseen world with its jinns and ghoulehs. For this world premiere, Abboud collaborates with Issa Freij, and the artists reflect on their experiences during a four-year film project as they searched for the haunted sites of which the tales tell. Their interactive storytelling explores folk customs, sacred objects, and enchanted locations to underscore themes of memory, loss, and resilience.

The Show
Written and directed by Michel Laprise (also director of Cirque du Soleil´s KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities as well as Madonna´s MDNA tour), SEP7IMO DIA conjures a world outside of time – a place where emotions ebb and flow like the tide, pulsing to the rhythm of the band’s emblematic songs.

A cast of 36 performers take the audience through a series of visual, acrobatic and artistic tableaux, achieving an unforgettable experience that honors the fierce and innovative artistic approach of the trio and their musical legacy.

SEP7IMO DIA – Cirque du Soleil´s 40th show – is one of the company´s creative collaboration with world known musicians, others being The Beatles LOVE and Michael Jackson ONE, both resident shows in Las Vegas.

SEP7IMO DIA – No Descansaré, which premiered exactly ten years after the band´s Me Verás Volver tour in 2007, the tour that reunited the band after a decade of separation, pays tribute to the wave of euphoria that Soda Stereo unleashed in Latin America and beyond, and celebrates the iconic band’s deep connection with its fans.

SEP7IMO DIA – No Descansaré is Cirque du Soleil´s first show that features a sector where the audience is standing up. The sector, called Zoom Zone, will give audiences the opportunity to live the energy of the show at it´s best.

Tickets are also now on sale to the public for SEP7IMO DIA – No Descansaré in the city of Los Angeles, which will take place in The Forum from May 3rd to 6th.

The artist will also present a lecture performance about her practice; a workshop with young artists titled Performance Art, Artistic Strategies, and Political Imagination (New World School of the Arts); and Light Cloud, an action that will be performed along with the workshop participants in downtown Miami. The unpredictable encounters that result from these open-ended situations constitute the works. Born in Brazil in1968, Eleonora Fabião is an artist and theorist who has performed actions in the streets since 2008. In 2011, she received the Arts in the Streets Award from the Brazilian National Foundation of the Arts and in 2014 the Rumos Itaú Cultural Grant that resulted in the publication of the book AÇÕES/ ACTIONS.

Who put the gold in the Golden Age? Bride of the White Widow, a multi-media event by performance art collective My Barbarian (Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alexandro Segade), playfully –and critically–wrestles with this question in a surreal, post-colonial tale about the doomed crew of the White Widow, seventeenth century Dutch sailors lost in the so-called New World. A show within a show, Bride of the White Widow is an interactive play, exploring contemporary issues of cultural appropriation, globalism, and environmental collapse through song, dance, and games with the audience. A restaging of My Barbarian’s Voyage of the White Widow, originally commissioned by De Appel, Amsterdam, in 2006, and included in Performa 02 at the Whitney Museum, New York, the performance at the Light Box in Miami explores My Barbarian’s sixteen-year journey as a performance collective. Working at the intersection of visual art, theater, and critical practice, My Barbarian uses performance to theatricalize social problems and imagine ways of being together. Founded in Los Angeles in 2000, the group’s work moves through different modes that prepare for, present, and represent live performance: music composition, plays, and other texts; costumes, masks, puppets and sets; video; and drawings and prints. The group has performed and exhibited widely while maintaining a focus on the provocation of theatricality in the visual-art context. My Barbarian has been included in the Whitney Biennial, two Performa Biennials, two California Biennials, the Montreal Biennial, and the Baltic Triennial.

Karen Finley’s rave-reviewed solo performance Unicorn Gratitude Mystery explores psychological portrayals of the power that drives American election politics. Set in the recent US political presidential landscape, it takes on citizenship, gender disparity, and abuse of power. The individual cost of public relationships at the expense of privacy becomes divisive with searing psychosexual dynamics of wit and seething revelation. The performance includes magical beings, aggressive thankfulness, and collective intimacy through Shakespearean family nation dramatic traumatics. Playing a unicorn and morphing into a Hillary-like, Trump-like being while enveloping into the blueness of the blue dress of Monica Lewinsky, Finley embodies an experimental nonlinear poetic text that creates a jolt of intuition, analysis, and unnatural disaster of the human kind. Karen Finley is a pioneering interdisciplinary artist who has performed and exhibited internationally. Her recent work includes Mandala: Reimagined Columbus Circle, an interactive walk that examines the symbols and history of Columbus Circle; Artist Anonymous, a self-help meeting for those addicted to art; Written in Sand, a performance of her writings on AIDS; Open Heart, a Holocaust memorial at Camp Gusen, Austria; and Sext Me If You Can, where Finley creates commissioned portraits inspired by “sexts” received from the public. She is the author of eight books, including her latest, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Shock Treatment (City Lights). Grabbing Pussy (OR Books) is forthcoming in 2018. A recipient of many awards and grants, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, she is a professor of Art and Public Policy at New York University.

MIAMI, FL – Renowned actor Avi Hoffman will star in the South Florida premiere of Reflections of A Lost Poet. Reflections will run at The Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center’s (MAR-JCC) Cultural Arts Theatre (JCAT) from Wednesday, December 13 through Sunday, December 24, 2017.
Reflections of A Lost Poet will be performed in the original Yiddish language with both English and Spanish supertitles. Performances in Yiddish with English supertitles have proven to be a success, as with Mr. Hoffman’s Drama Desk nominated Off-Broadway performance of Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in Yiddish and Paula Vogel’s Indecent, seen last year on Broadway and on PBS, in which some of the dialog was in Yiddish.
Reflections of A Lost Poet, written by acclaimed playwright Miriam Hoffman, (who is also Avi’s mother and was recently inducted into the Bronx Jewish Hall of Fame), is a one-man tour de force following the life and times of Itzik Manger, considered one of the greatest Yiddish poets. The play is a serious, occasionally funny, monologue comprised of songs and poems, capturing Manger’s joy and anguish during the tumultuous years of Europe’s burgeoning Jewish culture, before it was decimated by WWII. The Megillah of Itzik Manger was the last musical performed on Broadway, entirely in Yiddish, in 1968.
“It will be one of my most meaningful performances, as it’s written by my mother and I’ll be speaking solely in Yiddish, which is the heart and soul of the great poet Itzik Manger’s work,” said Avi Hoffman. “For the past few years, my mother and I have reestablished the Joseph Papp Yiddish Theatre, which aims to keep the Yiddish culture alive. The fact that this show will be performed in Yiddish, with English and Spanish subtitles, is a step in helping us reach our goal.”

Set in 1969 at the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port compound, one week after Teddy Kennedy’s infamous car accident on a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Mass, Rose reflects on her life and her family’s triumphs and tragedies.

The play is based on never-before-heard interviews conducted by Robert Coughlan, the ghostwriter of Rose Kennedy’s 1974 memoir, and compiled by distinguished Kennedy biographer and Palm Beach resident Laurence Leamer. A renowned Kennedy expert, Leamer has penned three best-selling tomes: “The Kennedy Women: The Saga of an American Family,” “The Kennedy Men” and “Sons of Camelot.”

ROSE is directed by revered Chicago director Steve Scott and stars Linda Reiter, a Chicago theater veteran who originated the role at The Greenhouse Theater and recently won a Jeff Award for her portrayal. Her numerous credits also include the television dramas Chicago Med (NBC), Chicago PD (NBC) and The Beast (A&E).

VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and the power of the group to make that possible. It celebrates freedom as a movement.

WAZ, a popular gameshow host, has lost touch with his inner self in the pursuit of fame, pulling others in the trap of instant glory. But as doubt sets in, WAZ is enlightened by childhood memories as he encounters “free spirits” who open doors to his inner soul he has long kept shut. On his high-voltage search for meaning, will WAZ find the courage to relinquish his fame, reconnect with his true self, and shine bright?

Forum Productions, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Theater Center NFP, is seeking actors and actresses to portray the lead and supporting roles in Truman and the Birth of Israel, a world premiere play by Chicago playwright William Spatz. Auditions will be held on Friday, September 29, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Mizner Park Cultural Center, 201 Plaza Real in Boca Raton. The production will make its debut on March 21, 2018 and will run through April 8, 2018. Rehearsals start on March 4.

From humble beginnings as a poor farmer, soldier and failed businessman to the unimaginable: president and thrust headlong into global turmoil, Truman and the Birth of Israel tells the real story of how one Missouri man’s unlikely rise to power changed the future of the Jewish people forever. The show is directed by Clayton Phillips and produced by Forum Productions, the highly acclaimed comprehensive stage and theater company based in Chicago. The company has produced/co-produced 17 plays including the well-received Churchill and Solo Celebration!, a series of one-actor plays all staged at the Greenhouse Theater in Chicago.

Actors and actresses (including understudies) are being sought for the following roles:

HARRY S. TRUMAN: (Equity/Non-equity); 50s – late 60s, 33rd President of the United States; Proper and plainspoken but with a temper, Missouri Midwestern drawl with a blunt, yet folksy disposition.

CLARK CLIFFORD: (Non-equity); Early 40s – mid 50s; A lawyer and close friend of Truman’s, handsome, fit, calm and sophisticated.

MELVYN BELLI (Non-equity): Late 30s – 50s; An attorney for the defense who is sarcastic, aggressive and incites provocation.

EDDIE JACOBSON: (Non-equity); 50s – 60s; A close friend of Truman’s; in real life paunchy and balding, soft-spoken, under-educated, comes across as an awkward country fellow from Missouri but his easygoing personality makes him a good salesman.

BELLA ABZUG: (Non-equity); early 30s – early 40s; Truman’s attorney, an unmistakable New Yorker, born of Russian Jewish parents, with personality galore. Not a shrinking violet, though she’s both advocating for and attacking the former President of the United States.

AL SCHWIMMER: (Non-equity); 40s – 50s; Witness for the defense who is a handsome and commanding presence – forceful and confident.

Auditioning candidates should have a one-minute dramatic monologue and prior to the audition will be given a section of the script to be performed. For an appointment, please send a headshot and resume to wmspatz@gmail.com.
