A curious season

Hey, blog readers....I've been MIA (and will be, pretty much, 'til Aug. 19) because even drama queens need a vacation now and then. I'll post from time to time while I'm away, then be back to serious (and not so serious) blogging mid-August.

Head09_cirque_brow_ekmIn the meantime, just a wee bit of news to tide you over. Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts will offer a 2008-2009 lineup of touring Broadway shows, but the announcement of just what the Miami crowd will be getting has been late in coming.  Now we know, and it's...well, it's not Jersey Boys.

The season begins with The Wizard of Oz Oct. 28-Nov. 2.  Then comes Annie Dec. 2-7.  A non-subscription return of Cats (me-yawn) happens Dec. 31-Jan. 4.  Then...a big gap.  Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy (that's a glimpse at right), now on Broadway, plays May 12-17.  Then the fleeting season ends May 25-31 with the return of Chicago.

Tickets go on sale in September.
