Fresh theater at a bargain price

New Theatre hosted Foryoucansee Theater's debut production of Toners in Time the  last weekend in June, and a raucous time was had by all for just $10 a ticket.

NEW ONES photo Since the company isn't putting up its own production 'til The Taming of the Shrew opens Aug. 27, artistic director Ricky J. Martinez and managing director Eileen Suarez are opening their theater to another group of young artists.  Lili Bita's Women of Fire and Blood runs Friday-Sunday, July 10-12, followed by The New Ones Festival July 17-19.  Both productions are the work of recent New World School of the Arts alumni, and again, you can see either show for just $10 a ticket.

Betsy Graver, Ashley Olberding, Ann Marie Olson, Jackie Rivera and Gladys Ramirez are in Women, described as "edgy, raw and erotic poetry, as seen through the eyes of 'the other women' in Greek mythology."  Anne Chamberlain (in Road to Crazy Town, pictured here), Mark Della Ventura (Small Membership), Justin McLendon (I Wish), Olberding (For as Long as We Both Shall Live) and Ramirez (The Blushing Bride) are the "New Ones," actor-playwrights performing one-person shows.

The shows go on at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 5 p.m. Sunday.  New Theatre is at 4120 Laguna St. in Coral Gables.  Call the box office at 305-443-5909 or visit the theater's web site for more info.
