Dave Rice 12:35 p.m., May 23
David Selby of Dark Shadows fame sent me a tweet that said he's coming to the "Old Globe" this summer. The production is called "Divine Rivalry" and threatens to be something worth seeing. Unfortuanately, it looks like tickets are only available for subscribers and I'm not one of the one percent. However, just receiving a tweet from the former Quentin Collins was enough to get my heart all atwitter (no pun intended).
Previews begin on July 7 with a July 12 opening. The final performance is August 12.
"Divine Rivalry, written by Michael Kramer with D.S. Moynihan, transports audiences to 16th-century Florence, where two of the world's greatest artists, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, face off in a painting competition orchestrated by political mastermind NIccolo Machiavelli (The Prince). Michael Wilson, director of the Globe's recent revival of Horton Foote's Dividing the Estate, will remount his acclaimed production of Kramer's new play which recently had its world premiere at Hartford Stage."
