Current Productions for the week of January 2, 2012

Macbeth and the Monster 
at Mad Cat Theatre Until Jan 8
All little Macbeth wants is a bedtime story to help him fall asleep. But when his mom tell his him the scary story of Macbeth and the Monster, he gets more than he bargained for.

 Irving Berlin's - I Love A Piano
at Broward Stage Door Theatre Until Jan 8
Join us for a nostalgic journey that spans seven decades of American history as seen through the eyes of legendary songwriter Irving Berlin. Including timeless classics such as “White Christmas,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ On the Ritz,” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” I Love a Piano does more than define the music of a generation - it defines the music of our country. 

August: Osage County
at The Waterfront Playhouse in Key West Until Jan 14

It’s August in Oklahoma.  You are cordially invited to one bitch of a family reunion.  A father is missing, a mother is in the grip of addiction, a marriage is unraveling, and lies are being exposed.  This raucous dark comedy transforms one family gathering into an evening filled with sex, secrets, and really inappropriate behavior.  August: Osage County is a can’t-miss, hilarious and stinging look at the American family.

The Effect Of Gamma Rays On Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds
at The Palm Beach Dramaworks Until Jan 29 
Winner of the 1971 Pulitzer Prize, the Obie Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award as Best American Play of the season. The story revoloves a single mother whose life has gone awry and her two daughters: Ruth, a pretty but highly strung girl subject to convulsions; and Matilda, plain and almost pathologically shy with an intuitive gift for science who undertakes a gamma ray experiment with marigolds that wins a prize at her high school—and also brings on the shattering climax of the play.

The Producers

at The Tamarac Theatre of Performing Arts Until Jan 29

Max Bialystock, a theatrical producer, and his mousey accountant, Leo Bloom, scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a Broadway flop.  Complications arise when the show unexpectedly turns out to  be successful. The humor draws on ridiculous accents, caractures of homosexuals and Nazis, and many show business inside-jokes.

The Motherfucker with the Hat 

at The Gable Stage Until Feb 5 
A high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity and misplaced haberdashery.  Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the 8th grade.  But now, Jackie is on parole and living clean and sober under the guidance of his sponsor, Ralph D, while still living with and loving his volatile soul mate Veronica who is fiercely loving, but far from sober.  Still, their love is pure.  And true.  Nothing can come between them – except a hat.
