  • ‘Constellations’ at Gulfshore Playhouse looks at alternate universes


    “Constellations” examines the theory that we live in multiple universes — a multiverse — and that an infinite number of universes co-exist simultaneously in which every possible alternative occurs. (more…)

  • Review: ‘Constellations’ explores ‘what-ifs’ of life


    Gulfshore Playhouse deserves high praise for beginning its 2016-17 season with such a creative, thought-provoking drama. Eastwood Norris and Nickell brilliantly command the stage, which actually juts out into the audience compared to previous Playhouse productions. The actor and actress with British accents flawlessly create something magical in the 75 minutes.

    They also drop many F-bombs, which offended two theater-goers who were heard mumbling before exiting about 30 minutes into “Constellations.” (more…)

  • ‘Constellations’ collide in Gulfshore drama

    Jeffrey Binder, Gulfshore Playhouse artistic associate director.

    GULFSHORE PLAYHOUSE’S ANNUAL NEW WORKS FESTIVAL is always full of surprises. The surprise this year is that all five new plays that will be presented as readings were written by women. (more…)

  • Much has been made of the fact that Gulfshore Playhouse and The Naples Players, only a handful of blocks apart in downtown Naples, have both announced “My Fair Lady” for 2016-17. The Lerner and Loewe musical about a Cockney street vendor who learns how to move about in high society is a classic. But the Naples troupes are presenting different versions.

    The Naples Players’ production (March 1-April 2) will have a full cast and orchestra at the Sugden Community Theatre, while Gulfshore Playhouse will stage a stripped-down version with 10 performers and two pianos at The Norris Center (Nov. 12-Dec. 11). (more…)

  • A stimulating evening diversion from the sun and sand. Visitors to Naples will find that the Gulfshore Playhouse offers a stimulating diversion from the sun and the sand at night. This company hires professional actors and every performance that I have seen here has been excellent. My only desire is that the seating would be made more comfortable. It is bearable for the quality.
