The next Royal Palm Players production comes with a warning label: For mature audiences only.
RPP Artistic Director Michele Strauss said the adult comedy, "You've Got Hate Mail," is edgy and not for everyone as language can get a bit rough.
But the second stage production of the Royal Palm Players season might also be its funniest. "Hate Mail" uses a modern-day premise to places its stars in motion. The wife receives an e-mail meant for the mistress and the mistress receives one meant for the wife.
Charlie Tyler gave a riveting performance in the season-opening Royal Palm Players production of “Vincent.”
"Come and watch all hell break loose on stage in this funny, contemporary story told entirely through e-mails from laptop computers, Blackberries and iPhones," Strauss said.

Charlie Tyler starred in the opening RPP production of Vincent. Despite light crowds, Strauss said the production Leonard Nimoy's script was a great success.
"People shot to their feet every night for standing ovations in appreciation of the show," Strauss said. "Charlie Tyler's acting was, as always, superb."
