Dear Friend,

We hope you’re spending your Monday and Friday evenings with PBD. Here’s a rundown of our virtual programs for the rest of the month.

Dramalogue: Talking Theatre! can be seen live every Friday evening, beginning at 7:30pm. This week’s guests are the wonderful Lubben Brothers, whose musicianship delighted PBD audiences in Woody Guthrie’s American Song and The Spitfire Grill. They will be interviewed by guest host Bruce Linser, who directed both shows. You’ll have a chance to ask questions via Zoom at the conclusion of the conversation.

To whet your appetite, we invite you to watch a quarantine video of a song from The Spitfire Grill, James Valcq and Fred Alley’s “Way Back Home,” that the brothers made with Elizabeth Dimon, one of the stars of our production.

Upcoming Dramalogue programs feature actress Margery Lowe on August 21 and actor Rob Donohoe on August 28. They will be interviewed by Producing Artistic Director William Hayes. Tickets are free, but reservations are required. All Dramalogue interviews will be recorded for viewing on PBD’s YouTube channel. A big thank you to the sponsors of Dramalogue, Marlene and Martin Silver.

Drama(in the)works, our virtual play readings, continues on Mondays at 7pm. Next up, on August 17, is The Bleeding Class by Chisa Hutchinson. A world that insists on devaluing black and brown bodies is saved from a deadly plague – by a Dominican-American hooker.
The August 24 play is Scientific Method by Jenny Connell Davis, whose As I See It was seen at January’s New Year/New Plays Festival. Amy is a cutting-edge cancer researcher on the edge of a breakthrough – and a nervous breakdown. When her big project gets "scooped," and a handsome new colleague starts asking questions, Amy discovers that she's the one under the microscope.

Finally, on August 31, Padraic Lillis, whose Remember Me When You Come Into Your Kingdom was part of January’s New Year/New Plays Festival, returns with Lights Up On The Fade Out. Steven, a 40-year-old filmmaker, at long last achieves the romance and fantasy he has been searching for. But when forced to care for his father, who is in the throes of dementia, Steven comes to realize the tenuousness of human connection and the true nature of love.

Remember, these readings are one-night only events; they will not be recorded for later viewing. Once again, tickets are free, but reservations are required. Mark and Diane Perlberg are the underwriters of Drama(in the)works, and we can’t thank them enough.

You can make your reservations for both the August 14 Dramalogue and the August 17 play reading at or by calling the box office at 561.514.4042, x2. And donations to PBD are always welcome!

Stay safe. 

As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary, these live interviews pay tribute to the theatre industry professionals, master artists, and arts advocates who have contributed to the success of Palm Beach Dramaworks.

The Lubben Brothers are an acoustic group made up of triplets Michael, Tom, and Joshua. Their younger brother, Isaac, joins them from the suburbs of Chicago whenever possible. The brothers specialize in tight vocal harmonies and use a unique blend of folk instruments including banjo, mandolin, accordion, tin whistle, hammered dulcimer, and fiddle. They have appeared in two productions at PBD, Woody Guthrie’s American Song and The Spitfire Grill. Classically trained at a young age, their modern songwriting style incorporates folk roots with complex pop ideas. They have performed at such venues as the Meyer Amphitheatre, the South Florida Fair, the Flagler Museum, the Norton Museum of Art, and the Kravis Center. They also wrote and appeared as actor/musicians in the world premiere of The Luck of Roaring Camp, based on Bret Harte’s short story, which was produced by Palm Beach Atlantic University in October 2018. They have recorded three albums – including “Live from the Norton,” which began streaming on all digital platforms on July 31 – and numerous singles.
