Stage Director/Choreographer, Daryl Gray

A Shakespeare troupe is putting on The Taming of the Shrew, but the cast is embroiled in interpersonal relationships that lead to offstage bickering and onstage surprises.  Cole Porter’s score, performed with the original-size Broadway orchestra, is filled with great numbers such as So In Love, Too Darn Hot, Why Can’t You Behave?, and Brush Up Your Shakespeare.  Bring your tap shoes because you’ll want to leave the theater dancing.

What the Bellhop Saw

by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore
Playing January 5th- February 24th, 2019

A fantastic comedy involving an author in hiding, a bumbling assassin, a wife from hell, a conniving bellboy, an incompetent F.B.I. agent, a nubile ce- lebrity-mad maid and a dimwitted secretary. Gag lines are popping as events transpire at a whirlwind velocity. Humor blends with the traditional antics of farce: doors slamming, characters careening and confusion reigning supreme. “A winner!” – Stage Directions. “The laughs keep on coming!” News Tribune “A rip- roaring good time!” – Broadway Stage

Jobsite – Othello @ Shimberg Playhouse
Jan 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

OTHELLO

By William Shakespeare

Jan. 11 – Feb. 3, 2019

Thu. – Sat. 8pm, Sun. 4pm

Preview Performances: Jan. 9 – 10 | Wed. – Thr. 8pm

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Backstabbing politicians, two-faced frenemies, gaslighting, treachery, true love and the never-ending cultural complications of a “black ram tupping a white ewe,” Shakespeare’s Othello might as well be talking about this year’s headlines. And in this production, it does. Othello features Jobsite’s signature modern spin on a favorite Shakespeare play.

Copenhagen

The ghosts of physicists Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr, and Bohr’s wife Margrethe, attempt to answer the question “Why did Heisenberg come to Copenhagen?” The New York Times called Copenhagen “the most invigorating and ingenious play of ideas in many a year and a work of art that humanizes physics in a way no other has done,” and called Copenhagen’s ghosts “a restless lot, filled with a crackling, questing vitality rarely found even among the living.”

Jan 18 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Innovocative Theatre - Columbinus @ Stageworks Theatre | Tampa | Florida | United States

 

Directed by: Staci Sabarsky

Columbinus is an intersection of fact and fiction (comparable in many ways to The Laramie Project) that illuminates the realities of adolescent culture by exploring the events surrounding the shootings at Columbine High School nearly twenty years ago. The play weaves together excerpts from discussions with parents, survivors, journals, and community leaders in Littleton as well as police evidence to present this riveting docu-drama.
