World-class theater

Wow, all this time I was under the delusion that world-class local professional theater was alive and prospering in South Florida. I clearly misunderstood the production and performance quality of GableStage, Zoetic Stage, Actors Playhouse and other local venues.

I thank Arsht Center board chair Mike Eidson and County Commissioner Xavier Suarez for reminding us that Miami is a cultural backwater. Thank you for reminding us that all worthwhile creativity comes only from New York and Hollywood. And thank you for reminding us that we have not outgrown the days of carpetbaggers and scalawags.
