Art takes on a deeper purpose in 'The Dana Plays'

Dana CastellanoDana Castellano has been a familiar figure in South Florida's theater community for a number of years, from the time she was in a long relationship with an actress until the present day, when her real-life drama is rivaling almost anything you could see on stage.

In January, Castellano was diagnosed with Stage 4 cervical cancer, and she has literally been engaged in the fight of her life ever since.  She has endured the surgery, the chemo, the radiation, the treatment-caused illness like the feisty warrior she is.  When she learned what she was facing, she invited family and friends (many via Facebook) to join her on "Team Chaos," an unofficial support group whose motto is, to paraphrase, screw cancer.

A woman with lots of body art and piercings, Castellano decided to turn what might be an otherwise traumatic part of cancer treatment -- shaving her head -- into a party.  She invited friends in the theater community, including Antonio and Katherine Amadeo, the couple behind The Naked Stage and the 24-Hour Theatre Project.  And there, the idea for The Dana Plays -- a benefit with an artistic twist -- took shape.

"I said, 'Let's  do it. Let's take theater and use it to raise awareness.'  Antonio is so fast, he just ran with it. I'm just speechless.  It blows me away how not even an hour-long conversation could blow up to become something so huge," says Castellano, 45. 

For his part, Amadeo says, "Dana wanted us to consider doing a large fundraiser...that would raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society, since they had done so much for her during this tough time.  She was so excited by the idea. Of course we said yes."

What has evolved is an evening of original short plays by South Florida writers to be presented in a one-time-only event at 8 p.m. Monday.  Miami Theater Center, 9806 NE Second Ave., Miami Shores, is hosting the evening, and the South Florida Theatre League is presenting the program, which will raise funds for both Castellano and the American Cancer Society.

"What I love about The Dana Plays is that it is not only another place where the community can band together, but it's one where we're focusing on something bigger than just our artistic community," says Andie Arthur, executive director of the Theatre League and one of the evening's playwrights.

And participation by the theater community is vast.  Works written for the occasion are So I Was Wondering by Christopher Demos-Brown, Lyd by Jessica Farr, The Purple Troll by Tony Finstrom, F**k You, Cancer! by Avi Hoffman, The Opponent by Michael McKeever, Wearing Hope by Deborah  L. Sherman, Ex-Communication by Matt Stabile, We're in the Money by Paul Tei, Be Nice to Me, My Girlfriend Has Cancer by Arthur and one more by Demos-Brown.

Amy London and Hoffman will direct a host of South Florida's finest actors in the readings:  Barbara Bradshaw, Elena Maria Garcia, Gregg Weiner, Sally Bondi, Elizabeth Dimon, Sofia Citarella, Clay Cartland, Jeffrey Bruce, Harriet Oser, Angie Radosh, Andy Rogow, Dave Corey, Niki Fridh, Michaela Cronan, Arielle Hoffman, George Schiavone, both of the Amadeos, and Stabile.

Through her work as a board member of The Women's Theatre Project, Castellano has become a contributing member of the theater community, a person with a deep passion for the art form.

"The more I was around theater, the more I loved it.  You see an amazing show and use your imagination, which is something we lose just going to the movies," Castellano says.

And of the Amadeos, she says, "They are the dynamic duo of theater, Batman and Robin."

The inspiration for The Dana Plays will be in the audience on Monday with her friends and extended family.  She's ready to use her imagination, ready for whatever she sees.

"It will be hard to watch these plays.  But I'll be sitting there with a handkerchief or a box of Kleenex," she says.

Admission to The Dana Plays is $15, with additional donations welcome.  For information, call 305-751-9550 or email Andie Arthur at andie@southfloridatheatre.com.

UM's Ring Theatre cooks up a hot 2014-2015 season

IMG_Henry_Fonte_2_1_0165UEKVThe University of Miami's Jerry Herman Ring Theatre has put together an intriguing, musical-dominated season for 2014-2015, including a pair of productions likely to draw South Florida's most passionate theater lovers.

We already know about the one off-campus show, the southeastern premiere of the Tony Award-winning Peter and the Starcatcher.  The Peter Pan prequel, based on the Dave Barry-Ridley Pearson novel for young readers, is part of next season's Theater Up Close programming at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.  Henry Fonte, producing artistic director of the Ring, will stage the show, which is a collaboration with the Arsht running Oct. 9-26 at the center's Carnival Studio Theater.

0101084853The season's other big news is a brand-new Carmen, an in-development musical with book and lyrics by Moisés Kaufman, the Tectonic Theater Project artistic director who oversaw creation of The Laramie Project.  Co-produced by the Ring and Tectonic, the piece is set in Cuba in 1958, with Georges Bizet's classic music given an Afro-Cuban makeover by Arturo O'Farrill.  The fresh take on Carmen runs Nov. 12-23.

Also part of the Ring's five-show season are the William Finn-Rachel Sheinkin musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Sept. 24-Oct. 4), Clare Boothe Luce's tart comedy The Women (Feb. 18-28) and the lavish season-ending musical Oklahoma! (April 15-26).

Season memberships are now on sale at $100, a savings of 20 percent.  Individual tickets, which go on sale Sept. 2, are $25 ($22 for seniors, $10 for students).  The Ring is located at 1312 Miller Dr. on the University of Miami campus in Coral Gables.  For more information, call 305-284-3355 from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday or visit the Ring web site.

'Ragtime,' 'Murder Ballad' top 2014-15 Actors' Playhouse lineup

Murder Ballad.webJust as it's getting ready to open this season's big musical -- Monty Python's Spamalot -- Actors' Playhouse in Coral Gables has settled on the six shows for its 2014-2015 season.

First up (Oct. 8-Nov. 2) is the Julia Jordan-Juliana Nash adult rock musical Murder Ballad, a 2013 Off-Broadway hit about a successful New Yorker whose past dangerously resurfaces.  Placing the audience and performers together in a bar setting, the show mixes lust, betrayal and violence.

Tom Dudzick's play Miracle on Division Street is next, running Dec. 3-28.  Set in Buffalo, N.Y., the comedy centers on a matriarch who runs a soup kitchen next to her family's most treasured artifact:  a 20-foot-tall shrine to the Virgin Mary, the subject of a legend that may not be quite accurate.

Ragtime.webThe company's biggest undertaking of next season, the Terrence McNally-Stephen Flaherty-Lynn Ahrens musical Ragtime, runs Jan. 28-Feb. 22.  Based on E.L. Doctorow's sprawling, history-laced novel linking an upper class white family, black characters and Jewish immigrants in the early 20th century, the Tony Award-winning show features a cast of more than 30 actors.

The Austin Winsberg-Alan Zachary musical First Date will run March 18-April 12, 2015. The 2012 Broadway musical centers on a couple whose blind date at a restaurant morphs to involve friends, exes, parents and more.

The Book Club Play by Karen Zacarias, running May 13-June 7, 2015, is a comedy about that omnipresent social and literary gathering, the book club. When members of one club become the subjects of a documentary, the arrival of a new member shakes up the group dynamics.

Next season winds up with a summer run of Paul Slade Smith's Unnecessary Farce July 15-Aug. 9, 2015.  In addition to the requisite number of doors (eight in this case), this farce involves an embezzling mayor, a hit man, an accountant who keeps shedding her clothes and a couple of eavesdropping cops.

Subscriptions to the new season are now on sale.  Prices range from $203 for preview performances to $453 for gala opening night tickets, which include pre- and post-show parties.  Subscriptions to Wednesday or Thursday evening performances and Sunday matinees are $257; Friday and Saturday evening subscriptions are $293.  Special VIP/flexible, student and young professional packages are also available.

Actors' Playhouse performs at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables. For information, call 305-444-9293 or visit the company's web site.

New World steps 'Into the Woods'

Into the woods1South Florida's Zoetic Stage just enjoyed a long, successful run of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins, and now the New World School of the Arts college music theater program is getting into its own Sondheim groove with Into the Woods, directed by faculty member James Randolph.  Inspired by Grimm's Fairy Tales, the 1986 musical by Sondheim and James Lapine incorporates familiar characters -- Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Jack (of Jack and the Beanstalk) -- and imagines what happens after the happily ever after.

An all-star movie version will be released next Christmas, but you can check out New World's stage version this weekend at the Colony Theater, 1040 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach.  Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday.  Tickets are $20 ($15 for students and seniors).  For info, call 305-237-3135 or visit New World's web site.

Covenant House benefit honoring Paige O'Hara

Ft. Laud. Native Paige O'Hara with BelleShe didn't appear as the bookish, beautiful Belle in Disney's Oscar-winning 1991 smash Beauty and the Beast -- but that's only because the movie was animated.  Take a look at Paige O'Hara's photo, though, and you see that the animators may have drawn some of their inspiration from the woman who gave voice (spoken and musical) to Belle.

On Saturday at 6:30 p.m., the Fort Lauderdale native will be back home as one of two honorees at the Night of Broadway Stars, a benefit for Covenant House, which provides shelter and services to homeless young people.  Produced by Neil Berg, the show will feature performances of Broadway classics by professional singer-actors and some of the Covenant House residents.  O'Hara will perform alongside Broadway-tested talents Alan H. Green, John Treacy Egan, Rita Harvey, Capathia Jenkins, Ted Louis Levy and Natalie Toro.

Honored along with the late Kevin Koenig, co-founder of City Furniture, O'Hara has been dedicated to showbiz since she began acting with the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater.  She got training at Parkway Middle School and in the arts program at Nova High, then went to New York.  Among her theater roles:  Ellie May in Showboat, Fantine in Les Miserables, Nellie Forbush in South Pacific.

The gala evening takes place at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale.  Tickets are $225, and the event includes the performance, dinner and a post-show reception.  Roxanne Vargas of NBC6 will emcee.  For information, contact Elisa Stone of Covenant House at 954-568-7914 or via email at estone@covenanthousefl.org.

An honored Nilo Cruz bringing 'Sotto Voce' to Miami

Sotto_IMG_8164Miami's Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz, recently announced as the 2014 winner of the Greenfield Prize, is in New York at the moment, working hard on the world premiere of his newest play, Sotto Voce.  Commissioned by the Theater for the New City, the play (which Cruz is also directing) explores the relationship of an elderly German-born novelist and a young Cuban man who forge a bond based on their individual ties to the World War II voyage of the S.S. St. Louis.

Untitled

The play's New York run begins with previews Feb. 13-14, followed by performances Feb. 15-March 9.  But South Florida Cruz fans needn't travel to Manhattan to experience this metaphysical love story born of a long-ago tragedy, when a ship packed with Jewish refugees was turned away by Cuba, the United States and Canada, sending desperate asylum-seekers back to Europe and doom.  Working in partnership with Miami's Arca Images, the playwright plans to bring 'Sotto Voce' home once its New York run ends.

Cruz, who recently directed a Spanish-language version of his play Hortensia and the Museum of Dreams at Miami-Dade County Auditorium's On.Stage Black Box theater, will offer the English-language Sotto Voce in the same venue March 20-23.  Presented with Spanish supertitles, the play will feature the New York cast:  Franca Sofia Barchiesi, a veteran of two Cruz plays and numerous regional theater productions, as the novelist Bernadette; Miamian Andhy Mendez as the young man, Saquiel; and Arielle Jacobs as Bernadette's Colombian maid Lucila.

Nilo color 002c (1)The production, which Cruz hopes will be just the first in an ongoing relationship between Theater for the New City and the Miami theater projects he's doing with Arca, will get four performances in South Florida:  8:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday.  Tickets are $25 ($20 for seniors, students and groups), available by calling 786-327-4539 or visiting the Arca web site.  The entrance to the On.Stage Black Box is behind the auditorium building at 2901 W. Flagler St., and the theater really is an onstage experience for both actors and audiences.

Once the Sotto Voce runs are over, Cruz can turn his attention to the prestigious Greenfield Prize and the future piece that its $30,000 in funding will enable.  Created in 2009, the prize has gone to two other playwrights, Craig Lucas and John Guare.  Cruz is the first Floridian and first Latino to win the prize, which will allow him two years to write a new play, with some of the work being done at the Hermitage Artist Retreat in Englewood, south of Sarasota.  When the play is ready, it will be produced at Sarasota's Asolo Repertory Theatre.  Olympia Dukakis will be the keynote speaker when Cruz is honored at this year's Greenfield Prize dinner April 12.

Miami's City Theatre is reprising its successful LBGT-themed Shorts Gone Wild project and is seeking new 10-minute plays for Shorts Gone Wild 2.  The rules:  The plays must be new works never produced in South Florida.  Each writer is limited to one submission of a play running 10 minutes or less (10 pages maximum), with no more than six actors required.
