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.

  3. The new 'Baywatch' movie is basically about hot people in swimsuits

    Movies

    Baywatch is a running gag in slow motion, a thong-in-cheek TV retread swapping wholesome jiggles for dirty giggles. There are places for such humor but beaches don't have gutters.
