The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?
Why don’t men know what women want? To answer that, posits writer/actor/standup comic Robert Dubac’s long-running hit The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?, just look at who they’ve been trying to find out from. Starting with freshly heartbroken protagonist Bobby, Dubac then transforms himself into a consortium of untrustworthy male advisors. There’s the retired colonel raising five daughters; the philosophizing exchange student; the chauvinistic heartbreaker; the jovial old man; and the chivalrous galoot. It all adds up to what the Sun Sentinel described as “ a hilarious 90-minute self-help therapy session” in a 2005 review.
Like many of Fox's lavish movie palaces, the Meyer opened in the 1930s, only to see its Spanish Atmospheric touches fade over the years as it became a modern triplex cinema. But once it was converted to its current incarnation as a live performing arts venue, the staff worked hard to restore its opulence, from the midnight-blue sky with twinkling stars to columns decorated with gold leaves. The theater's crown jewel, however, is the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, which was refurbished using the original 1927 blueprint. With its pipes ranging from the size of a pencil to 16 feet, the instrument boasts a range of tones and cinematic sound effects, such as horse hooves, chattering teeth, and David O. Russell roaring at his actors.
