The winter holiday season in Orlando is usually full of festivals and events celebrating Christmas and other holidays, but with the pandemic, the 2020 holiday season looks very different.
But there are still plenty of events to enjoy, and I’ve picked out the best ones (and the ones adhering to safety guidelines of masks and social distancing).
From ongoing events to limited time events, here are my picks for holiday events to enjoy this season:
Orlando’s Mad Cow Theatre has announced is offering free tickets to World War II veterans during its upcoming run of “Last Train to Nibroc.”
Orlando’s Mad Cow Theatre will present their next production, Fade, select nights August 23 through September 15, 2019.
Fade tells the compelling story of a Latina television writer in Los Angles creating a conversation about the complexity of the Latinx experience in America today.
Mad Cow Theatre has announced its second annual Black & White Bash is set for Sunday, April 24, at Kres Chophouse, Mad Cow’s neighbor on West Church Street in downtown Orlando.
This unique event supports Mad Cow Theatre, downtown Orlando’s only professional theatre company.
Mad Cow Theatre has announced the 2016 Science Play Festival will run March 24-26, and will explore in three play readings, the many intersections between art and science.
This year’s three plays – each to be read by a cast of Mad Cow regulars – will be Nick Payne’s Constellations, Sarah Treem’s The How and the Why and Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, often called Stoppard’s greatest work.
Mad Cow Theatre will present Eugene O’Neill’s dramatic masterpiece Long Day’s Journey Into Night, select nights March 18 through April 17, 2016.
Widely considered the masterwork of one of America’s most respected playwrights, Long Day’s Journey Into Night blends dramatic autobiography with poetic designs to create one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century.
Mad Cow Theatre will continue its Teatro Español program with a staged reading of Federico García Lorca’s classic Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding) January 26-27.
A well-loved classic written in 1932, Bodas de Sangre is a poetic tragedy about lost love. It will be presented entirely in Spanish and directed by Eliana Stratico.
This week, Orlando’s Mad Cow Theatre opens their newest production, My Name Is Asher Lev, which will run November 6 through December 6, 2015.
The play is an adaptation of Chaim Potok’s critically acclaimed novel of the same name, which chronicles a a young painting prodigy growing up in a Hasidic community in post-WWII Brooklyn.
