EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT!!! The headlines from a fictional production now on stage at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. The Broadway musical, Disney Newsies, is based upon a true event in 1899 about the newsboys in New York taking a stand against the mogul newspaper giant Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World. Pulitzer, who is trying to best his rival, William Randolph Hearst, increases the cost of the newspapers the young boys sell, which hurts their already substandand payments. According to public relation/marketing director, Dana Munson, “It’s a high energy show with a cast of 26.”
The 2017/18 theatrical season promises to be outstanding, and, if you’re not a subscriber, now is the time to purchase individual show tickets. It’s an opportunity for those theatre patrons who can’t attend every performance to get a good selection of tickets for the upcoming season. Here’s a list to make it easier.
Who says that there are no theatergoers during the summer months? Not the two theatres that have provided outstanding summer productions to a delighted audience!
You know that it’s summer time when The Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival delights audiences with Shakespeare by the Sea at “Stratfrord upon Carlin.” Park that is… It’s an outdoor extravaganza at the Seabreeze Amphitheater in Jupiter.
Palm Beach Dramaworks’ production The Cripple of Inishmaan is Brilliant! From the beautifully written Tom Stoppard play, Arcadia, which ended at the end of April, to a comedy loaded with vivid characters, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Palm Beach Dramaworks continues to present outstanding productions.
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.
