The family model featured in Goldie, Max and Milk, a new comedy at Florida Stage, would make Dan Quayle choke on his own vomit. Max is both a single mother and a lesbian. She has little idea how to breast-feed her 4-day-old child. In comes Goldie, a lactation consultant and an Orthodox Jew with old-fashioned views. Can Goldie put aside her prejudice to help this decidedly unorthodox mother? Not without antics.
Goldie, Max and Milk, by award-winning playwright Karen Hartman, opens at Florida Stage (701 Okeechobee Blvd., Ste. 300, West Palm Beach) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and runs through January 16. Tickets to the opening, including a reception, cost $75, and $50 or less after that. Call 561-585-3433, or visit floridastage.org.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 15. Continues through Jan. 16, 2010
