Private sorrow shifts a season

AdalbertoAdalberto J. Acevedo, the founder and artistic director of the Miami Lakes-based Alliance Theatre Lab, should have been in rehearsals this week for his company's planned Nov. 6 opening of James McLure's Pvt. Wars, a dark comedy about Vietnam veterans coming to grips with their injuries.  But his father passed away last month, and Acevedo said he hasn't been able to focus on putting on a show.

So Alliance has dropped Pvt. Wars from its lineup; instead, it will begin its season with its planned production of Jose Rivera's References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot Jan. 8-25.  The rest of the Alliance's provocative season includes the controversial My Name Is Rachel Corrie March 12-29 and Martin Sherman's Bent June 11-28.
