Monday Roundup

-Coming attractions of note: director Ivo Van Hove and actress Liz Marvel team up again on another great diva role in The Little Foxes at NYTW; the all-female Queens Players resurrects a real rarity, 18th century playwright Susan Centlivre's The Wonder; Melvin Van Peeples is alive and well and adapting his landmark film Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song (yes 5 s's, I checked) into a musical for the BRIC Arts group in Brooklyn; and to follow up last year's greatest title (Rob Blagoyevich Superstar) Second City offers Rush Limbaugh! The Musical.

-Variety's headline says it all, "Lights Out at Pasadena Playhouse."

-Nice background to the writing of A View From the Bridge.

-A review of a new published history of South Coast Rep.  Headline asks if theatre is "a role model"?  Click and find out...
