By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com Oct 18, 2014 – The Plaza Theatre in Manalapan declared bankruptcy and closed its doors Friday on the day that it was poised to begin its third season, founder and artistic director Alan Jacobson confirmed.

Quiet, Insightful “Our Town” Is Worth Investing Your Attention, Imagination

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Oct 16, 2014 – For such a seemingly simple play, Our Town requires the audience to generously invest their attention and imagination. Thornton Wilder’s classic set in a small town in New Hampshire only works when its visitors travel more than halfway there. But for those willing to make that journey, the gossamer delicate play can vibrate the heartstrings and the synapses, as it does in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ deft production. It intentionally starts […]
