Allan Carr: CAN'T STOP THE STORIES Is Sold Out At 
Island City Stage

Island City Stage's reading of Allan Carr: Can't Stop the Stories on Monday June 17 is SOLD OUT!

While all of the readings in the South Florida Theatre League's Summer Theatre Fest are free -- some theatres, such as Island City Stage, do require advanced reservations.

However, if you were not able to snag a reservation, there are still readings throughout July and August for you to attend!

The Summer Theatre Fest summer reading series, features new works by local playwrights at member organizations. Because of the Theatre Communications Group Conference happening in Miami in June, this year's event will start on Monday June 17 with a reading of Michael Shayne's Allan Carr: Can't Stop The Stories at Island City Stage and will end with our annual Remy Awards on August 26.

The South Florida Theatre League is always very excited for the opportunity to showcase the breadth of local talent and to prop up the variety and range of theatre offerings and venues throughout South Florida.

Here are the upcoming reading dates:

It is the day after the disastrous 1989 Academy Awards show which he produced, and Allan is ensconced in the basement discotheque of his mansion waiting for a phone call from the Academy. While entertaining some unexpected guests, he regales them with stories and gossip about his career, friends and the actors he has worked with including Ann-Margret, Rock Hudson, John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and The Village People. Allan Carr was a unique show business personality, and there hasn't been anyone else quite like him since.

Lorenzo is a recently divorced writer who has moved to Paris to make his literary mark. The company he submits for, ran by a modest Jean-Paul, rejects his play, as they are in search for the best play of the generation, to compete with the rising popularity of musical theatre. He is then told to re-submit something to their standard, to rejuvenate this fading and falling art form. With the help of Federica, another Italian born writer, they set off to compose this piece.
