Maytag Virgin

Maytag Virgin gradually, elaborately, and poignantly unfolds in an assiduously crafted literary effusion. It’s a dreamscape in which we sense loss tempered by hope.

A Doll’s House Part 2

Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House – Part 2, is an exploration of the complexity of human emotions, discrete frailty, dreams, ambitions, freedom, and needs emanating from the configuration of the nuclear family, in this instance, with three children and no dog. The four-member cast carried the 90-minute production beautifully, masterfully maintaining their respective roles, engaging the heart and imagination, and taking us with them as they traveled effortlessly in an inventive dreamscape through time.

Driving Miss Daisy

This fantastic sold-out event warmed the heart and charmed the soul. The characters were delightfully conceived and presented by Mujahid Abdul-Rashid (Hoke Coleburn), Sara Morsey (Daisy Werthan), and Jason Parrish (Boolie Werthan). If you’ve seen the 1989 film, it’s clear that the Florida Rep presentation better captures the emotional and memorable qualities of author Alfred Uhry’s work.

West Side Story

An excited full house eagerly anticipated this Opening Night of West Side Story, its pathos intensified by today’s passing of our beloved bard Stephen Sondheim. As such, we were honored to participate in what became a celebration of West Side Story’s depiction of a doomed couple we love, akin to Romeo and Juliet, Aida and Radames, and Tristan and Isolde.

The Woman in Black

The mood is set from the moment you enter the theater and the play begins. An amazing full moon casting shadows over the gravesite scene is as stirring as the seashells illuminated haphazardly at the edge of the stage flickering throughout the acts.
