Heisenberg in Broadway HEISENBERG
Studio Theatre
Tampa Repertory Theatre will inaugurate its eighth season with the compelling new drama Heisenberg by Simon Stephens, author of the international hit The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. In Heisenberg, a 42-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man discover one another in a London railway station, and from there embark in search of the woman’s missing son. The New York Times called Heisenberg a “satisfyingly sentimental, life-affirming mating dance between two people who are so utterly dissimilar that of course they are made for each other,” and also “a probing work that considers the multiplicity of alternatives that could shape our lives at every moment.” TampaRep’s Heisenberg is directed by lauded actor/director Jim Sorensen, who most recently staged the critically acclaimed new play Strait of Gibraltar at American Stage Company. Sorensen has assembled a star cast for Heisenberg: Emilia Sargent (Georgie) and Michael Mahoney (Alex). Sargent was honored as “Outstanding Lead Actress” by Theatre Tampa Bay and as “Best Actress” by Creative Loafing for her turn in last season’s Grounded at TampaRep, and was awarded “Best Actress” by Creative Loafing for her appearance as Blanche DuBois in TampaRep’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Mahoney won “Outstanding Lead Actor” from Theatre Tampa Bay for TampaRep’s 2016 production of The Iceman Cometh. Both Sargent and Mahoney recently won high praise from critics and audiences alike for their lead performances in TampaRep’s hit closer to last season, Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. Heisenberg will run in the Studio Theatre of HCC-Ybor City, on the corner of East Palm Ave. and Avenida Republica de Cuba, from September 7 through September 23 at 8 PM on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 3 PM on Sundays. (A paid preview will be performed at 8 PM on Thursday, September 6.) Tickets are $25 ($20 student/military/senior) and are available at the door or from a link on TampaRep’s website at TampaRep also offers its FlexPass, which enables patrons to attend multiple shows in Season 8 at a discount.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike in Broadway VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE
Plant City Entertainment, Inc.
Chekhov is alive and well in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where adult siblings Vanya and Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. When their often-wrong, fortune-telling maid warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with young, sexy, boy toy, Spike, the family is launched into a rollicking weekend of one-upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. With wit and absurdity, Christopher Durang’s Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike blends Chekhov’s famous ennui with the modern-day toils and troubles of celebrity, social networking, and age into a laugh-out-loud comedy that will tickle your funny bone and stimulate your mind.

Chicago in Broadway CHICAGO
Straz Center [Carol Morsani Hall]
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids.

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in Broadway 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Carrollwood Players Theatre
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
