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.

Band-Aid Over a Broken Heart
by Chris Gacinski
at Measure for Measure at TBA
at 8:00 PM 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.
