Erotic desire, romance, magic and tragedy are mixed to give life to this theatrical satire from Federico García Lorca called Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su jardín. This play runs at Mad Cow Theatre all weekend long. Now I beg of you, before you buy your ticket, ask the salesperson if the actors in the show have been paid on time. They will be shocked at your question. But that theatre has a publicly known reputation for not paying their actors on time and if you want to support live theatre you want to support those organizations that treat their actors with respect. Otherwise, go see a movie. For more information go to madcowtheatre.com. Orlando Science Center is bringing back …

David A. McElroy One Man “A Christmas Carol”


The cheapest most profitable show for an actor or theatre to put on is a one-man show. I should know. I’ve done a bunch at Fringe. There’s one actor so no big cast to pay, typically there’s no set to create and pay for so it’s heaven for the actor and the theatre. The audience? Well it depends on the actor. So roll the dice this weekend on this one-man adaptation of A Christmas Carol written and performed by David A. McElroy Saturday and Sunday at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts. Remember, you can always request a refund after any theatre show and if they don’t give it to you, you’re screwed. So maybe don’t take a chance on …
