Naked in November!

The Naked Stage has two amazing events planned for November that you do NOT want to miss.

First:     The World Premiere production of A Man Puts On A Play. November 2nd - 18th. Naked Stage Executive Artistic Producer Antonio Amadeo has written, produced, directed and designed a play that gives the audience a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the struggles an artist faces before the curtain goes up. Set in an alternate reality, A Man Puts On A Play follows Antonio and his company as they race against the clock to put up a show before the crowds arrive. With Antonio Amadeo, Andy Quiroga, Kathleen Robiou, Shawn Burgess, Stephanie Meskauskas, Ricardo Redd, Victor Rodriguez, Kaitlin Sarnacki & Jake Tompkins. Costumes are by Leslye Menshouse. Stage Manager is Kaitlin Sarnacki.

Second:     The Naked Stage's Theatre Project 2012! Fundraiser at Gablestage. Monday, November 12th at 8 p.m.

How does it work? At 7 p.m., on Sunday, November 11th, 2012, 8 playwrights will gather at Gablestage -- at the historic Biltmore Hotel -- and select a theme from which they must each write a short play to be staged, rehearsed and performed the next day -- just 24 hours later! At sunrise on Monday, November 12th, their randomly distributed actors, directors and stage managers arrive and spend the entire day bringing the writers’ work to life. A process that usually takes weeks! That night, at 8 p.m., an audience will gather to see . . . well, we have no idea what they're going to see, actually! It’s like the entire creative theatrical process on SPEED! This one-night event is coordinated by Naked Stage Artistic Director, Katherine Amadeo, and features many of South Florida’s TOP actors, directors & playwrights, such as: Alex Alvarez, Andie Arthur, Jim Ballard, Nan Barnett, Tracey Barrow-Schoenblatt, Sally Bondi, Amy Miller Brennan, Marj O'neill-Butler, Clay Cartland, Anne Chamberlain, Marckenson Charles, Oscar Cheda, Matthew William Chizever, Clive Cholerton, Andrea Conte, Dave Corey, Christopher Demos-Brown, Christopher De Paola, Todd Allen Durkin, Lela Elam, Tony Finstrom, Patti Gardner, Arielle Hoffman, Avi Hoffman, Dan Kelley, Christopher A. Kent, Julie Kleiner, Mcley Lafrance, Michael Leeds, Dan Leonard, Amy London, Margery Lowe, John Manzelli, Amy McKenna, Hunter McConnell, Michael McKeever, Stuart Meltzer, Hugh Murphy, Andy Rogow, Juan C. Sanchez, Deborah L. Sherman, Adam Simpson, Barbara Sloan, Karen Stephens, Shane Tanner and more! (Participant list subject to change.) The Naked Stage would like to extend a very heartfelt “Thank you!” to Joe Adler.

  1. Hi Antonio Amadeo,

    Just got off the phone with you. I am a South Florida writer interested in finding a musical theater company willing to perform my South Florida inspired play called The musical was designed to address the victims of pill users, friends and family, which receive no closure from these troubled individuals when their relationship ends.
    The musical text is posted here
    Demo songs are posted here
    Having a hard time finding a female singer to demo the female songs.
    I do have a list of bands interested in performing the play, but actors and bands are two different artists, akin to writers and performers. People seem to be listening to the songs and I have risen up the charts on Reverbnation almost over night. The open mic nights I have performed locally seem to draw a great interest in the music and cause. I have lost two friends to pills, and this play is about my loss.
