It’s been slamming in our corner of the theatre scene, and from the looks of things, it’s just as busy everywhere else.
We’re sorry to see the Plaza Theatre close; they never managed to find the grand patrons to underwrite the costs of producing shows, which means they relied almost entirely on ticket sales to operate. And with such high rental rates at their location, a slump in sales was deadly. Our sympathies to the producers, and all the technicians and artists who would have worked there this season.
Do not miss And the Award Goes to: An Evening of Broadway Songs And The Carbonell Award Winners, playing Saturday night for two shows only at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center. It’s just what you think it is: a night of South Florida’s best performers singing top Broadway show tunes.
Here's what's playing on South Florida stages this weekend:
Outré Theatre Company opens Back of the Throat at the Sol Theater in Boca Raton. Through November 9.
Miami Theater Center opens its original adaptation of Hedda Gabler this weekend; its exceptionally long rehearsal process has allowed a lot of buzz to filter out to the community. Through November 16
