“Hook Ups Volume 1”
Hurricane Irma interrupted the run of this collection of eight short plays, most about 10 minutes long, when the anthology was staged in Fort Lauderdale’s FAT Village. Now local producer Ronnie Larsen is trying again by moving the production to Empire Stage, also in Fort Lauderdale. And this weekend is your last chance to catch the show about digital dating in the 21st century. Or, for those not in the know: swiping-right-for-hot and swiping-left-for-not on social networks like Craig’s List, Grindr, Scruff and Growlr. The LGBT-themed show has nudity and sexual situations.
When: Oct. 21-22. 5 p.m. Saturday; 8 p.m. Sunday.
Where: Empire Stage, 1140 N. Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale.
Cost: $35 and $50 (20 percent off if you use the code “empire”)
Delray Beach’s Peter Fogel admits he has some major commitment issues, describing himself as the “eternal bachelor.” But now the 50-something comedian — who says “The longest relationship I’ve ever had is with T-Mobile” — has turned his journey into a funny one-man-show.
When: Through Oct. 29. 7:30 p.m. Oct. 19, 21, 28; 2 p.m. Oct. 22 and 29
Where: Mizner Park Cultural Center, 201 Plaza Real, Boca Raton.
In 2012 and 2014 Enter’Acte Theatrix staged this camp classic that sends up cheesy 1950s sci-fi and horror movies. The show — famously made into a 1975 midnight movie favorite starring Tim Curry — is still relevant, according to this production’s director, Jeremy Quinn. “With the resurgence of hate, bigotry and violence for those who are ‘different', it’s not only an appropriate time and place to produce the show, it’s a responsibility,” Quinn says in a press release. “[‘The Rocky Horror Show”] allows us the opportunity to give the ‘others' a voice and platform to be seen, heard, embraced and accepted.”
Brooklyn’s theater for young people is bringing its production of “Wink” to South Florida for children up to 5-years-old. The show mixes physical theater, shadow puppetry and animation to examine dreams from the perspective of a girl.
