GableStage’s The Whale Is A Shattering Paean To Human Decency And Hope

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, July 22, 2014 - Like the title leviathan rising from the deep, GableStage’s production of The Whale begins with few ripples disturbing the placid surface. It’s even a bit frustrating waiting for the conflict to assert itself. But the vague outline of a behemoth emerges from the muck and it grows in emotional heft until it breaches the surface with shattering impact. Samuel D. Hunter’s plot focuses on a morbidly obese man wanting to reconnect with […]

Canaveral: Florida’s longest unspoiled beach

By Bob Rountree, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, July 21, 2014 - Crossing the dunes, this unspoiled beach has a special feeling about it, and it’s all yours. Shore birds hurry along the tide line to a symphony of rolling surf, pecking at bubbles in the sand that likely will yield a dinner of mole crabs, tasty little crustaceans known more commonly in these parts as “sand fleas.” There’s not a soul in sight, but even if there were, there’s enough space. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. This is Canaveral […]

Jose Rodriguez

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, July 21, 2014 - Jose Rodriguez, who made his money from pole dancing, is now funneling some of those dollars to pols. Rodriguez, who owns the Cheetah Strip Clubs, is all over the Hallandale Beach city elections. He, his associates and companies have given former Commissioner Keith London’s campaign $8,000 in one day in May. London was a supporter of allowing the Cheetah in Hallandale Beach to reopen after the city shut it down for alleged […]

H2OMBRE Immerses Arsht Financially And Creatively In Immersion Theater

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, July 21, 2014 - Amid the lights and smoke and bass lines and 6,000 gallons of liquid, the significance of H2OMBRE might get lost. That’s understandable: With torrents of water erupting out of a performer’s chest like the creature in Alien, with streams shooting out of a colleague’s fingers in 10-foot arcs, with comely fairies appearing out of a wall and writhing to pounding techno music. With all that and far more, the lasting import might be […]

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, July 20, 2014 - Over the past four decades or so, a huge section of humanity chastened by a thousand tiny and huge betrayals has grown a carbuncled cynicism for protection. A tragic victim is the embrace of emotion like joy, regret and even an unabashed ideal of true love. So one benefit of revivals of Broadway musicals of the 1940s and 1950s is the reminder of how we used to feel about feelings […]
