A blessed 'Curse'

_DSC0762 Mosaic Theatre's production of Martin Casella's The Irish Curse -- a funny and touching play about a self-help group whose members have come up short both physically and emotionally -- is a mighty big hit at the Plantation theater's box office.  The company has added Sunday evening performances, and Casella has decided to fly in to see for himself what all the buzz is about.

Several performances are sold out or nearly so.  Casella will be at the 3 p.m. matinee on Saturday, March 5, and will hang around for a talk-back with the actors and audience afterwards.

The Irish Curse runs through March 6 at Mosaic in the American Heritage Center for the Arts, 12200 W. Broward Blvd., Bldg. 3000, Plantation.  Performances are 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Saturday, 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday (evening performance Feb. 26, which is Mosaic's annual fund-raising gala, and matinee Feb. 27 are sold out).  Tickets are $37 ($31 for seniors 65 and older, $15 for students). For information, call 954-577-8243 or visit the Mosaic web site.
