Summer Events

This summer, in addition to our various presentations of Theater by the Book (go to www.theaterbythebook.org) I will be working with City Theatre (go to www.citytheatre.com ) at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

The two-program Summer Shorts runs from May 29 to June 22, 2008 in Miami and features in program “A” a terrific ten-minute play by Henry Meyerson titled Silence. My cast is stellar – Laura Turnbull, Antonio Amadeo and Steve Trovillion – and the entire program is full of both world and Southeast premieres of new works, including one by our friend Michael McKeever.

Meanwhile, Kimberly is in the thick of rehearsals for Romulus Hunt, an opera by Carly Simon (you heard me right) that is being presented at Gusman (downtown, not the UM one) directed by our friend Phillip Church. The dates for that are Friday May 16 at 10 AM and Saturday May 17 at 8 PM. Go to www.romulushunt.com for all the information you will need.

Later on in July I will be staging Puccini‘s Madame Butterfly for the Miami Lyric Opera (go to www.miamilyricopera.org) The fledgling opera company will have two performances of Puccini’s masterpiece at the Colony Theater in Miami Beach, on July 26 and August 2. No idea of a cast yet, but judging by who they have lined up for their upcoming Lucia ( May 24) I would venture a guess that it will be an A-List ensemble. I am right now delving into books on Japanese customs and stage movement…

After all of that Kimberly and I hope to get away and have a long-awaited 40th Anniversary vacation before U of M starts up again in late August, just in time to start rehearsals of my adaptation of Shakespeare‘s Henry Fourth (parts 1 and 2) that we’ll be doing in a staged reading at Vizcaya and Books and Books in early September.

Do let me know what and where and when you are doing or acting or directing or singing or whatever on my Keeping in Touch page. HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
