The final play of Florida Stage’s 24th subscription season is the world premiere of a darkly funny, electric and timely new play by Carter W. Lewis, The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider. From the award-winning author of The Storytelling Ability of a Boy and Women Who Steal, The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider asks the questions, what happens when our “soldiers of fortune” outnumber our army troops and can art really make a difference in a corporatized world? The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider continues Florida Stage’s first season as the resident company in the Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. The Cha-Cha of a Camel Spider preview performances are Wednesday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday, May 5 at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. The gala press opening is Friday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. The show runs through Sunday, June 5.
