Review: Unnecessary Farce

Most of the time one goes to the theatre where the producers promise that you will be inspired and/or you will ”think” about some important issue. But, the latest offering at Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre offers none of that. Instead, it is proud to provide several hours of non-stop laughter and fun-filled performances. And, it delivers! There is no pretense at seriousness.

Review: Unnecessary Farce

Thursday & Saturday, July 30 and August 1 at 7:30 p.m.

The classic Cinderella-story, beloved the world over, is brought to life in this whimsical French romantic opera. Cendrillon (Cinderella) is an ethereal operatic production by French romantic master Jules Massenet based on the treasured fairytale Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper. Complete with sumptuous and varied musical styles, Massenet’s brimming score draws on influences from dramatic Wagnerian love-themes, supernatural Rossinian arpeggios, and fanciful Tchaikovsky-esque ballet sequences. You will delight in Massenet’s dreamy musical setting of the timeless glass slipper fairytale, reimagined by singers from the MSMF Opera Institute. Tickets are $15 and $20 at Miami Summer Music Festival.

Mozart's Don Giovanni is the dark and thrilling tale of a noble philanderer entangling comedy, drama, and romance en route to his ultimate karmic demise. MSMF Opera Institute singers take on this operatic favorite in a modern setting. A heavyweight in the operatic canon, Don Giovanni combines an outstanding ensemble-centric cast, high-flying vocal demands and exceptional character development with as score exuding a level of elegance and finesse that only Mozart could create. An intricate cast of characters entwine with Giovanni’s licentiousness, but ultimately Giovanni cannot escape fate, as past indiscretions catch up to him. Don Giovanni explores the vulgar, the sensual, the comical, and even the occult, in what is a complex, yet effortless, musical triumph. Miami Summer Music Festival performances are Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2. Tickets are $15 and $20; parking is free.

Actors' Playhouse will present Unnecessary Farce in its balcony theatre. Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go! This contemporary American farce is the final play of the season. In an economy hotel room, an embezzling mayor is about to meet his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there’s some confusion as to who’s occupying which room, who’s being videotaped, who’s taken the money, who’s hired a hit man and why the accountant keeps taking her clothes off. Unnecessary Farce is a dazzlingly funny new play, with one bit overtaking the next - a comic farce to be reckoned with. Tickets start at $40, and performances are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3.
