 Constellations at GableStage

Prize winning married theatre actors - much like Lunt and Fontaine - have a spectacular time on the stage together, especially when the audience knows in advance that the twosome are a couple in real life. So, if you know before the play begins that prize-winning thespians Katherine Amadeo and Antonio Amadeo, appearing in the GableStage production of the British play Constellations, have been married for 12 years, it is difficult not to realize the chemistry that they illuminate on stage is real.

That is a truism especially when a play has its characters in multiple possibilities of a relationship. The actors who can make these encounters seem real speak volumes for the talent of these two individuals, whether a couple in real life or not. The Amadeos deliver in both scenarios in this production and emerge as a multi-talented duo – exceptional as individuals and a WOW together in this two character play.

 NEWSIES Comes to Broward Center for the Performing Arts

Newsies can best be described in one word: jubilant. Because no other word quite captures the unbridled joy, and non-stop, cheek-hurting smiles, that this show inspires.

Based on the underrated 1992 Disney film, Newsies made its Broadway debut in 2012, with the initial intention of a 3-month limited engagement run. However, the show gained such a fervent fan base – who go by the fitting name “fansies” – that the show ended up running for two and a half years, sparking a success none involved could have imagined.

South Florida theatergoers now have the opportunity to reap the benefits of that success, as Newsies heads to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale for two weeks as a part of its national tour.

Stripped – with a remarkable cast, astute direction and all the tech attributes which makes for good theatre – marks another milestone in author Demos Brown’s astonishing double life career.

Locust Projects always pushes the boundaries of the white cube. Last spring, the good people at this alternative space launched Locust Salon Scholars, a series providing the public with the opportunity to learn about contemporary art from leading art professionals.
