Palm Beach Dramaworks continues its tradition of enlightening theatergoers with its Dramalogue: Talking Theatre! series.
Six eclectic presentations begin Dec. 8 with an onstage interview of Paul Gemignani, the veteran Broadway musical director who received a 2001 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement. Multiple Tony winner Tommy Tune will be interviewed by Dramaworks’ J. Barry Lewis on Jan. 4. Keyed to the theater’s production of A Long Day’s Journey into Night, a lecture about playwright Eugene O’Neill and his family will be delivered by Mark Perlberg on Feb. 2.
Tony-winning costume designer William Ivey Long will visit Dramaworks on March 1 for an onstage interview. Four South Florida directors — Dramaworks’ William Hayes, GableStage’s Joseph Adler, Actors’ Playhouse’s David Arisco and Lewis — will discuss the art of directing at a roundtable March 29. The series will wind up with a music-filled presentation on the Golden Age Broadway musicals of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, with Lewis presiding.
All programs are at 2 and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays (Tune’s is on a Monday). Subscribing to the series is $90, with individual tickets priced at $20. Dramaworks is located at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. For information, call 561-514-4042 or visit palmbeachdramaworks.org.
