Most theater companies save their world premieres for "the season," roughly October through May when both year-round residents and snowbirds make for a deeper ticket-buying pool. But Fort Lauderdale's Women's Theatre Project is taking a different approach, aiming to cure the summertime arts blues with a brand-new work about the girls in blue.
Playwright-actress-director Marjorie O'Neill-Butler has written True Blue, a play about a group of female undercover cops. The story involves a group of five policewomen, including a pair of sisters, who meet regularly to drink and chill. An accident threatens the sisters' relationship and their careers, so their friends respond to the crisis.
The production features a stellar cast: Angie Radosh (pictured here), Laura Turnbull, Patti Gardner, Pamela Roza and Jacqueline Laggy. The play previews Aug. 7, opens Aug. 8 and runs through Aug. 31 at Sixth Star Studios, 505 NW First Ave. Performances are 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sundnay (additional matinee on Saturday Aug. 30). Tickets are $25 ($10 for students). For information, call 1-866-811-4111 or visit the theater's web site.
