Get your butt out of the boring Sobe club for a nite and go support your local theater.
It doesn't get more local than the new Mad Cat production Broad Sword, written by Hialeah's Marco Ramirez, directed by Mad Cat's Paul Tei and performed by Miami's finests Erik Fabregat, Paul Tei, Scott Genn, Sofia Citarella, George Schiavone and Gregg Weiner, if you ever been to a play done by local talent, chances are you've seen any of them.
I loved them all. George, who I heard is like 70 years old was so incredible as the caricature of the old creepy guy from "Jurassic Park." Gregg Weiner, another very exaggerated character, the devil, was also amazing.
Paul, Scott and Erik, the band members gave a surprisingly great performance of the song that brings back the mysteriously missing singer of the New Jersey metal band that splits 16 years before.
It is not because I love the Mad Cat Company and know the actors, directors, stage managers, etc, but this play was SO MUCH FUN.
There is not a single moment that leaves you wandering or thinking about the laundry that you have at home.
Engaging, scary, funny, surprising and fun.
It doesn't matter if you are old, a kid, a soccer mom or hate heavy metal, I could not imagine who would not like BroadSword. Gable Stage Director Joe Adler, who was there when I went yesterday, seem to have enjoyed it a lot.
So, this weekend before going to The Vagabond, do something for yourself and for the little local theater we have. It is located on Biscayne and 30th so you can hit any place after. You can even have drinks, before, during and after the play for contributions only.
If you are a student is ten bucks if you are not is $25, that will go to a good cause and not Mansion.
