by Jan Davisson The Maltz Jupiter Theatre BELIEVE… is the name of the newest growth campaign at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Exciting future plans to bring year-round theater into the north county, including pre-Broadway shows. No longer just Boston, Philadelphia…
Twenty-five years ago I attended the “topping off” construction party for the new performing arts center on Okeechobee Blvd. It would be known as the Kravis Center. The gathering was an “over the top” event featuring an assortment of food stations, great music and a tour of the building, including getting a chance to sing “Happy Birthday” on the huge Kravis stage.
Exciting things are happening on the Palm Beach County theater scene in preparation for the start of the 2016-17 season.
These are a combination of happy and sad days. Sad because the theater seasons are coming to a close…happy and excited because they’ve released a stellar new season for 2016/17.
The Maltz Jupiter Theatre ended the season with a bang. Kiss Me Kate, a spectacular production that features a story line behind the scenes of the Shakespeare production of The Taming of the Shrew, has everything going for it from set design, costumes and ensemble talent to wonderful leads with the amazing talents of Peter Reardon as Fred Petruchio and the amazing vocal range of of Sally Wilfert as Lilli/Katharine.
Every year at this time, the theaters within the area announce their productions for the coming season. It’s always great to speculate on what might be in store for theater goers; however, I’m always surprised at some of the productions that are available.
Congratulations to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre for the 21 well deserved Carbonnell nominations received! Speaking of the Maltz, the Jupiter Theatre has come up with a brilliant move by including the fast-paced, riveting drama about one of the most monumental political interviews of all times—the award-winning production Frost/Nixon opens February 7-21.
