For its serendipitous 13th season, Florida Rep hails the new decade with a heart-warming yet humorous yarn from Tom Dudzick, the author of Florida Rep fan favorites Greetings! and Over the Tavern. The family dramedy, King O' the Moon, revisits the topsy-turvy lives of Over the Tavern's Pazinski family, who have (mostly) survived the idealistic ’50s only to come face to face with the mutating landscape of the turbulent ’60s. Those who missed the first installment won't feel left out as they set their eye globes toward the stage to watch the pandemonium that ensues when the intractable Vietnam War and Apollo 11's famous moon landing begin to hit home in this stand-alone sequel. The production features performances from reliable Florida Rep standbys Carrie Lund as recently widowed Ellen and Mark Chambers as Walter Fronzak. The production also features newly minted players, including Jason Parrish, Adam Jones, Jacob Womack, and Claire K. Guy.
The Florida Repertory is headquartered at the historic and deco-licious Arcade Theatre, which was built in 1908 as a vaudeville venue. It later morphed into one of the earliest film theaters and, after falling into disrepair in the late ’80s, was converted yet again to its current state, changing its identity as often and completely as a politician during election years. Reservations are required, so call ahead to ensure a ticket.
