Zoetic Theatre continues its fund-raising efforts 7 p.m. Monday with a staged reading of 37 Postcards, a comedy by Zoetic co-founder Michael McKeever. The play about family dysfunction has been performed around the country and Germany.
The stage has been donated again by Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton, which has been loaning out its house for good causes recently and emailing its patrons about the events. Zoetic co-founder Stuart Meltzer directs a cast that includes John Felix, Nick Duckart, Barbra Bradshaw, Beth Dimon, Katherine Amadeo and in a rare on-stage appearance, director-educator Ellen Davis, who appeared in the premiere at New Theatre in 1998. For more information visit Zoeticstage.com or call 305-741-3180. Suggested donation is $20.
Zoetic’s first fully-staged work has finally found a date and a temporary home. The world premiere of McKeever’s South Beach Babylon will be Dec. 2-12 at the Arsht Center’s Carnival Studio Theater, which is co-presenting the work. It’s described as a ‘wickedly funny and sexy new play (that) explores the lives of five South Beach artists during the weeks leading up to Art Basel. A fascinating examination of what it takes to create art without selling your soul in contemporary America.’
