Evan Handler ("Sex and the City," "Californication") will star in the readings, which will be directed by Tony and Drama Desk Award nominee Michael Leeds (Swinging on a Star). "It's 1966, it's Brooklyn, it's Acapulco," according to press notes. "Meet Doris, a soon to be divorced New Yorker, her frisky boyfriend who dyes his chest hair, a mysterious woman who's really a man, her penny-pinching liar of a husband, a scheming laundress mother-in-law, and the Whore of Brooklyn. A swinging 1960's kind of comedy with a 2011 point of view."
"The introduction of new play staged readings at SoBe Arts supports the institute's goal as being an incubator-type venue for innovative new works and developing new audiences for the arts," stated Dr. Kievman, who is producing Acapulco, assisted by faculty member Glen Lawrence.
The Little Stage Theater at SoBe Arts is located at 2100 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. For more information about the free reading, visit www.sobearts.org/SupportUs.html.
