Indeed, A Taste of Honey was well ahead of its time. Its themes were premarital and interracial sex, domestic violence, teen pregnancy, and homosexuality. This was 1958. Two years later, Angela Lansbury and Billy Dee Williams would star in its Broadway production, and the rest was history. Delaneys story proves the power of the playwrights pen one of the main reasons The Ghost Light Series, an independent readers theater project, will present Honey tonight at 7:30 p.m. Now in its third year, the series focuses on bringing the words of the playwright to life by gathering together local talent to read scripts with minimal production. Think of it like A Taste of Honey: Unplugged. Readings are held at the Collins Community Center (3900 NE Third Ave., Oakland Park); admission is free. Call 954-270-0998.
