Four local playwrights, including Mark Della Ventura and David Sirois, bring five stories and one rundown dive bar to life in #UnhappyHour, a new work that serves up a tall, cool pint of laughs with a chaser of melancholy. Charlie and Claire hustle through their usual shifts in a local watering hole, tending to regulars throughout the bar’s bustling happy hour, but there’s more than $3 domestics on the menu. As their lives rush around them—to say nothing of the lives of the revelers nestled elbow to elbow at the bar—they sort through their complicated chemistry, all their lingering wants and needs, and whether or not they can bear to actually turn on the jukebox. Five stories fill one tiny bar, allowing audiences to peek into the funny, not-so-happy hours of those who drink there.
Coral Springs Center for the Arts
Who says thespians and jocks can't coexist? Coral Springs Center for the Arts was once an old gym, after all—and following a 1996 renovation that saw the installation of a 1,471-seat theatre and the removal of all the abandoned bodybuilder nests, the venue became the culturally rich institution it is today. Now approximately 200,000 patrons migrate to its riverside confines annually for Broadway shows and performances by comedians, jazz luminaries, and pop stars. However, that theater isn't the only venue on the premises. On the third floor, an 80-seat cabaret-style Black Box Studio draws audiences into a more intimate, personal style of performance—and VIP packages grant access to the closest of the really close seats. Right below that studio is the Center's Coral Springs Museum of Arts, which showcases both a permanent collection of visual arts and traveling exhibits.
