STAGE DOOR THEATRE PRESENTS THE DELIGHTFUL
COMEDY THE BRIS, THE BAR MITZVAH & BEYOND
The Bris, The Bar Mitzvah, & Beyond is actually a drama with some very funny moments in it. It’s about relationships and from the director Randy Brenner’s point of view, it’s more or less a dramedy. He will tell you, “It’s always a challenge to do a play with three characters, and bring those three characters’ lives to life on stage, while trying to stay true to the author’s vision.
As the play goes, it begins with, “And, verily, The Lord said unto Abraham, “Cut off the foreskin of thy organ as a covenant of obedience,” and Abraham did replieth, “You’re kidding, right? Playwright David Jay Bernstein has long wondered what the ‘guest of honor ’at a Bris ceremony would be thinking if he knew what was going on.
And on the eighth day after his birth, little Max Shapiro begins a life -long conversation with his dad, Gary, by asking the age-old question, “What do you think you’re doing with that knife? The Bris sets the stage for the Shapiro’s lifetime together,” while Bernstein explains, some of the rites of passage that defines the relationship between Jewish fathers and sons.
Cast members are Jonathan Brett as Max, Ben Prayz as Gary, & Emily Freeman as Lori. The production is now on stage and runs through March 26, 2017. Tickets are $38 -$42 and $16 for students at the theatre’s box office located at 8036 Sample Road, in Margate. For further information call 954-344-7765 or visit online at www.stagedoorfl.org.
LIVE ON STAGE DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID AT BROWARD CENTER’S BROADWAY IN FORT LAUDERDALE
The Little Mermaid is a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen about a young mermaid who is willing to give up her life in the sea and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul. The Little Mermaid dwells in an underwater kingdom with her widowed father the Mer-King, her grandmother and five older sisters, each of whom has been born one year apart. When a mermaid turns fifteen, she is permitted to swim to the surface for the first time to glimpse the world above.
When the Little Mermaid’s turn comes, she rises up to the surface, watches a birthday celebration being held on a ship in honor of a handsome prince, and falls in love with him from a safe distance. When suddenly, a violent storm hits the sinking boat, the Little Mermaid saves the prince from drowning
She delivers him unconscious to the shore near a temple, waiting for someone from the temple to find him. To her dismay, the prince does not see the Little Mermaid or even realize that it was she who saved him.
She is willing to wait eternally for the prince by visiting the Sea Witch who helps her, by selling her a potion that gives her legs in exchange for her tongue and beautiful voice. She will have two human legs and be able to dance, like no other human, but warned that only what her relationship with the prince becomes, will determine what happens to her.
