Getting a jump on next season

The Davie-based Promethean Theatre, celebrating its trio of 2008 Carbonell Award nominations for its production of Nilo Cruz's Two Sisters and a Piano, has lifted the lid on a vintage 2009-2010 season lineup.

Tpt_reverse_logo-440x71 The fall brings Promethean's production of David Mamet's 1988 play Speed-the-Plow, a play about two movie biz sharks and the calculating secretary who comes between them.  The current Broadway revival starring ex-Miamian Raul Esparza, Elisabeth Moss of TV's Mad Menand movie star William H. Macy (who replaced Norbert Leo Butz, who replaced understudy Jordan Lage, who replaced the mercurial Jeremy Piven) winds up its Broadway run this Sunday.

Next winter, Promethean plans a production of the late Nobel winner Harold Pinter's 1957 play The Dumb Waiter, a darkly comic piece about an edgy pair of hit men.  Spring 2010 brings Alfred Uhry's Driving Miss Daisy, the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1987 play about the relationship of a cranky white Southern lady and the black driver her son foists upon her.
