The line in the legal play A Class Act, ““For the right money, I’d settle with Hitler,” stands out as much as it does because the virtuous play and JCAT’s heavy-handed production are otherwise absent this moral slipperiness, favoring a reductive arc of cardboard villains earning their comeuppance.
Forgive the sappy saccharine metaphor, but it’s inescapable: Spring has arrived for South Florida theater with buds and shoots peeping out of the what was not barren but rocky ground. All you have to do is look at the Florida Theater On Stage calendar or Facebook or the inbox of your email for the next two or three weeks with programs competing head-to-head not just online but in person.
There are plays that you may have seen ithat, when you experience them in today’s environment, bring more of a tear then they might have 10 years ago. This is the experience with JCAT’s Driving Miss Daisy — an underlying reality that some of the experiences that many of us thought, probably Alfred Uhry, too, when he wrote it in 1987, would be reflective are once again front and center.
Revelation after revelation – none of which the playwright wants us to spoil – are exposed like the proverbial peeling of an onion until the underlying secret lays naked in the world premiere of Ben Andron’s Broken Snow at the J’s Cultural Arts Theatre in North Miami Beach.
