what the critics are saying

Shorts Gone Wild Is Rainbow Of Gay-Themed Plays For Everyone

Shorts Gone Wild Is Rainbow Of Gay-Themed Plays For Everyone

Unrestrained laughter and some moistened tear ducts typify the audience reaction to most of these plays that examine 21stCentury life for LGBTQ citizens in an evolving society where gay marriage is finally recognized by the Supreme Court. But these tales should resonate with people of any sexual identity because the underlying issues dig into how all human beings cope with each other.
The call of 'Shorts Gone Wild 3'

The call of 'Shorts Gone Wild 3'

The joint effort by Broward County's Island City Stage and Miami-Dade's City Theatre is all hijinks and heart, and yet more settled and assured. Throughout the seven playlets, topics range from silly and sanguine to warm and touching. There is a feeling that the playwrights don't know it all, that the impulse to wrap things up neatly after 10 minutes isn't as forced as in seasons past. And even though the pieces have disparate textures and colors — eight very different playwrights are represented — there is a completeness and a finish that is quite satisfying. After playing Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale through Sept. 6, the show will move to the Fillmore Miami Beach for a Sept. 10-13 run.

Its latest edition, now playing at Fort Lauderdale’s Empire Stage and headed for a short run at the Fillmore Miami Beach in September, is just its third.

The most successful production so far for Fort Lauderdale’s Island City Stage, the play will be done again Nov. 28-Dec. 20 at the Beifield Auditorium on the Levis Jewish Community Center campus, 21050 95th Ave. South, Boca Raton. The return is a collaboration between Island City and the West Boca Theatre Company, which previously brought back Island City’s Carbonell Award-winning production of Dan Clancy’s The Timekeepers.

In 'Daniel's Husband,' an unlikely opponent to gay marriage emerges

The play about same-sex marriage (and a few other things) may be a fleet 80 intermission-free minutes, but the Davie-based playwright Michael McKeever has managed to create a world of wit, wisdom and woe.
