STAGE TUBE: Theater Latté Da Presents RAGTIME
by Stage Tube - Oct 8, 2016

Theater Latte Da continues its season with the classic Broadway musical, Ragtime. It's the turn-of-the-century, everything is changing and anything is possible. Based on E.L.

Three distinct American stories are woven together-a determined Jewish immigrant, a daring Harlem musician, and a stifled woman of Privilege united by their courage, compassion and belief in a better tomorrow. Together they confront what it means to be an American at the dawn of a new century. With a compelling book by Terrence McNally and a glorious score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, Ragtime was nominated for 13 Tony Awards and was awarded Best Book and Best Score. (more...)

BWW Review: Lake Worth Playhouse's URINETOWN a Rush of Wit
by Trevor Durham - Oct 22, 2016

Guest Blog: Joannah Tincey On Adapting PRIDE AND PREJUDICE For Two Actors
by Guest Blogger: Joannah Tincey - Oct 14, 2016

I've loved Pride and Prejudice since I first read it. I think I was about 17, and I was caught up in the romance of it (no doubt fuelled by a great appreciation of Mr Firth's iconic Mr Darcy). In rereading the novel later in life, I was more struck by Austen's acerbic wit. It was much funnier than I remembered. I was also bowled over by the characters, and they were one of the main reasons I wanted to create a new adaptation, and specifically one with two actors.

Prior to her run of shows, BroadwayWorld had a chance to chat with Ebersole about what it's like to perform in a space so richly seeped in history, as well as how she is able to craft a narrative for each of her concerts that is resonant of the current space in which she finds herself.
