Nearly two decades ago, then-Fort Lauderdale resident Robby Kendall dreamed up a fun gay-themed soap opera that found its way to the ArtServe building stage for multiple performances over two years.
Kendall heard the call of California and left for the West Coast, but Fort Lauderdale remained his inspiration.
Recently, Kendall resurrected “Victoria Place,” a nod to the Victoria Park neighborhood, as Zoom theater, with three episodes now available for viewing on-demand. Many of the characters are familiar LGBT archetypes and campy hijinks abound as the residents’ lives and loves collide. And the current adjustments for pandemic social distancing don’t hamper the drama. Kendall is currently developing an animated “queer motion” version of the series later this year.
