Bell Book And Candle Only Intermittently Casts A Spell

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 29, 2015 – Imagine you could have anything or anyone you wanted with virtually no effort; the prize might not feel quite as satisfying. Bell, Book and Candle postulates that magically being able to have what you want through magic doesn’t feel very magical once you get it. Broward Stage Door’s quite serviceable but not bewitching production of this 1951 fantasy love story doesn’t feel especially magical in the first act, but it […]

Stephen Foster State Park: Glorious river; great cabins, odd old museum

By Bonnie Gross, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 27, 2015 – We visited Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park so that we could kayak the Suwannee River and stay in the outstanding cabins in this park. Once in the park, however, we discovered a strange time-machine that took us back to the 1950s – the museum devoted to the composer Stephen Foster, who in 1851 wrote “Old Folks at Home (aka Swanee River)” without ever visiting Florida. It became Florida’s […]

Key West Wacky Regatta (Video)

By FloridaKeysNewsBureau For EyesOnNews.com, May 24, 2015 – KEY WEST, Fla. — A wacky regatta in Key West, featuring cobbled-together watercraft made of thin plywood and duct tape, attracted 37 entries including a vessel dubbed “First Ferry to Cuba,” skippered by a man costumed as Cuban president Raul Castro. “First Ferry,” an offbeat salute to the recent easing of restrictions for Americans traveling to Cuba, was a standout in Memorial Day weekend’s Schooner Wharf Minimal Regatta. “Castro” was abruptly drenched when […]

Fine Cast Still Can’t Make Book Club Much Of A Page Turner

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 24, 2015 – Professionalism is the only explanation why this much talent—the cream of South Florida theater from the director to the cast to the creative team — invested itself so deeply into the flawed frippery ofThe Book Club Play at Actors’ Playhouse. Inarguably, there are several laugh lines in Karen Zacarias’ mild smile of a comedy that has been bouncing around regional theaters for a few years. But what makes this mediocre […]

Dramaworks’ “Lady Day” Is A Tour De Force Play With Music

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 22, 2015 – Veil after veil are slowly stripped away from the elegant sophisticated stage persona that is “Billie Holiday” until standing exposed is a blunted devastated victim of racism, sexism and abuse – some imposed and some self-inflicted — in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ incisive Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill. Although the play occurs during a single club date, actress Tracey Conyer Lee and director J. Barry Lewis successfully chart Holiday’s […]

Florida Folk Festival: May 22 – 24, 2015, way up on the Suwannee

By Bonnie Gross & Bob Rountree, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 17, 2015 – WHITE SPRINGS — The Florida Folk Festival began with the music: It was 1953, and Pete Seeger and the Weavers had had a big hit recently with  Leadbelly’s “Goodnight, Irene.” Folk music was exploding with acoustic guitar, coffee houses, banjos, beatniks and sing-alongs. Sixty-some years later, the Florida Folk Festival is still held every Memorial Day weekend, and you’re sure to hear plenty of folk music.  But […]

Affair In Reverse Provides Thoughtful Fodder In “Betrayal”

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 17, 2015 – If God is omniscient, He must be inconsolably sad. Zoetic Stage’s superb production of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal puts its audience in that poignant and painful position in which Knowledge is, indeed, the poisoned apple in Eden. Since Betrayal charts the dissolution of an adulterous affair in reverse chronological order, we know at each receding step what will happen to these people. Watching the lovers and the woman’s cuckolded husband, we […]
