Stageworks Theatre says 2017-18 season is "Year of the Woman"

The Year of Magical Thinking is one of Stageworks Theatre's 2017-18 season offerings.

The Year of Magical Thinking is one of Stageworks Theatre's 2017-18 season offerings.

Stageworks Theatre has dubbed its 2017-2018 season the "Year of the Woman." It was to open with Beehive, the '60s Musical, which celebrates female singers and groups. But the theater can't secure rights to the music, producing artistic director Karla Hartley said, so in its place, Stageworks will put on a similar musical revue Sept. 22-Oct. 8.

More selections include an adaptation of Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking (Nov. 3-19) starring Vickie Daignault in a one-woman show about grief and loss. A new play, Brownsville Song (B-side for Tray) (Feb. 9-25) by Kimber Lee, follows an African-American family coping with the death of Tray, 18. Then Julia Alvarez's novel about activist sisters in the Dominican Republic, In the Time of the Butterflies (April 13-29), comes to the stage in a highly visual adaptation. The season closes with Blithe Spirit (June 1-17), Noel Coward's comedy about seances and unintended consequences.

Contact Stageworks Theatre at (813) 374-2416. stageworkstheatre.org.

  1. Pain does not exist in the Karate 3 soundtrack ... does it?!?

    Blogs

    Should the Karate Kid series have stopped at the original? Probably, but if we didn't have Karate Kid 3 would will still have the lost song Listen To Her Heart by the Little River Band?

  2. Bar review: The Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    I've spent many evenings in St. Pete's Jannus Live courtyard, enjoying one of the best open-air venues in the Tampa Bay area. It's where I saw my first concert in Florida: Toadies, on the Rubberneck tour sometime in the mid '90s.

    The drinks at the Landing at Jannus in St. Petersburg are about as cheap as you’ll find at any other regular downtown bar, a nice surprise.
  3. Local craft beer of the week: Two Henrys Belleview-Biltmore Blueberry Vanilla Wheat

    Bars & Spirits

    Two Henrys Brewing Company is a unique entity in the Tampa Bay brewing scene, due to both its status as the only brewery in Plant City, as well as its location on a 27-acre working farm, which also includes a winery.
