Island City Stage Opens 5th Season With Regional Premiere Of “Perfect Arrangement”

Nov 10 - Dec 11, 2016


Island City Stage opens it’s fifth season with the regional premiere of Topher Payne’s “Perfect Arrangement” which The New York Times heralded as a “clever canape of comedy” during its premiere Off-Broadway last fall at Primary Stages.

It’s 1950 and new colors are being added to the Red Scare. Two U.S. State Department employees, Bob and Norma, have been tasked with identifying sexual deviants within their ranks. The twist: Both Bob and Norma are gay, and have married each other’s partners as a carefully constructed cover. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap “I Love Lucy” sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door, confronting the very struggles facing society today.

“Perfect Arrangement” previews on Nov. 10, with a special donor opening on the 11th and Carbonell and Press opening on Nov. 12th. It runs through Dec. 11 with performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm at our home at 2304 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors. Tickets can be ordered online at or by calling 954-519-2533
