Sarasota's Florida Studio Theatre announces summer season

   Performing arts pickings get a bit slim in the summer, but Florida Studio Theatre is making sure you can sate your appetite for quality stage offerings.
   On Monday, FST announced a three-show summer season that includes a Kander and Ebb revue, a Steve Martin farce and a Miami-based satire.
Steve Martin
   The summer season starts May 29 with "And the World Goes 'Round," a revue based on the songs of Kander and Ebb. Their best-known shows are "Cabaret" and "Chiacgo," so there are plenty of numbers from those two shows, as well as familiar songs from "New York, New York" and other Kander and Ebb works. It runs through June 30.
   Next up is the "The Underpants," Steve Martin's adaptation of the classic hundred-year-old German farce "Die Hose." The story's about a woman who accidentally exposes herself in public, which sets off string of circumstances that, according to reviews from a round the country, are hilarious. June 28-July 28.
   Finally there's "South Beach Babylon," a 2010 comedy by South Florida playwright Michael McKeever, that pokes fun at Miami's people and the lifestyle of Miami. That one runs July 26-Sept. 1.
   Single tickets run $18-$49. A subscription to all three shows  start at $39. Information: 941-366-9000 or
