In the Pink

Senior editor Maria Hess dishes on the arts.

Welcome to The Arts Buzz.

Flying pigs?  Sure. It's Pink FloydIt’s no surprise that The Grand booked “The Pink Floyd Experience” again. The show was a good sell last year, and it’s expected to do just as well this year when it hits the boards February 27.

The show is a re-staging of PF’s live concerts, featuring classics like “Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Wall.” It’s performed live and lasts about two hours. Guitarist Tom Quinn leads the six-member band. On the drums is John Staten, who has performed with The Allman Brothers Band, Lenny Kravitz, and the Wailers.

Expect rock star effects. The show utilizes about $2.5 million worth of production equipment, and blasts quadraphonic sound. That means you’ll hear cash registers in “Money,” and ticking clocks in “Time.” The flying pig was a crowd-pleaser last year. Swine will no doubt be a major player this year. Tickets are $31-$37.

Plays and Players

The Rehoboth Beach Theatre of the Arts is hosting the “1st Annual One-Act Play Festival” February 26-27.

This is a departure for a venue that typically features touring acts. One would hope that bringing a local show like this to Rehoboth means that administrators are thinking hard about more diverse lineups. Local playwrights wrote the one-acts in this show, and local playwrights need the ink and the stage.

The audience will choose the winning play, and will be asked to consider originality, creativity and entertainment value. The winning selection will be entered into the annual Delaware Theatre Association’s competition at the Everett Theatre March 26-27. (That’s another great show.)
      
The competing plays include “Last Train To George,” by Matt Casarino; “Monkey Rhythms,” by John Baldi, and “Save Me A Place At Forest Lawn,” by Lorees Yerby.
