Island City Stage, one of the LGBT-centric theater companies based in Wilton Manors, will offer audiences an award-winning classic, big Broadway dreams, a pulp fiction musical, a neurotic family drama and murderous mayhem in their 12th anniversary season.

Fort Lauderdale audiences are being treated to five premieres at the Broward Center this season, including “Funny Girl,” “Hadestown,” “Moulin Rouge! The Musical,” “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Clue.” The season also includes the returns of “Annie” and “The Book of Mormon.”

Del Shores’ “black comedy about white trash,” “Sordid Lives,” gets a new production by producer/director Larry Buzzeo and his ArtBuzz Theatrics company through Oct. 22 at the intimate Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale.

Unlike most other regional companies, Plays of Wilton (POW!) and producer Ronnie Larsen follow a commercial theater model like Broadway, preferring flexibility and not being locked into a predetermined schedule. When a show is successful, he can extend and when its not selling, quickly close and move on.

With its stellar performance of Del Shores’ classic comedy, “Sordid Lives”, Larry Buzzeo’s ArtBuzz Theatrics has packed a Broadway-level performance into the tiny space at Empire Stage.
