Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see Macon Little Theatre’s production of “Hairspray” until the final show, a Sunday afternoon matinee on July 21. The house was packed and the parking lot overflowed. Based on a John Waters film, this musical comedy was all that one would expect and maybe a little more. What struck me […]

On my way to Afua Hall’s “Red” at the Miami Theater Center last Friday, I got stuck in traffic caused by Miami Critical Mass—an event held the last Friday of every month where bicyclists take over major city streets en masse.

Actors’ Summit, a Knight Arts grantee, is bringing yet another area premiere to its venue at Graystone Hall – the zany and fun musical “The Bikinis.” “The Bikinis” hasn’t got a lot going for it plot-wise.
