O'Neill hits the Beach

Ever since Area Stage and Acme Acting Company folded their tents, and especially since long-time Broadway venue the Jackie Gleason Theater was transformed into the Fillmore Miami Beach concert venue, theater has been a sometime thing on Miami Beach. Sure, the Arts at St. John's sometimes presents plays.  Ditto the Colony Theater on Lincoln Road.  But the supply is scarce.

David Tawil headshotSo it's news that the Miami Beach Cinematheque will present three performances of Eugene O'Neill's one-act play Hughie as part of its Cine-Theatre Series.  David Tawil plays small-time gambler Erie Smith, who lives in a run-down New York hotel ; there, a clerk named Hughie (Mark Kroczynski) becomes the alcoholic Erie's captive audience.

Tawil, a veteran of stage, film and television, is producing the play.  The performances take plays at 8:30 p.m. April 1, 5 p.m. April 4-5 at the Cinematheque, 512 Espanola Way, Miami Beach.  Tickets are $15 ($12 for members, seniors and students).  For information, call 305-673-4567 or visit the Cinematheque web site.

New York Hotel

O'Niell is a great writer and performer, and its a real shame that I don't get to see him more often! Easy Click Travel, my traveling agency, makes sure I get to see him at least once every couple years. I'm a long time fan of him, and hope his success only keeps climbing!
