Last Shows of 2007

It's been a banner year for theater here in South Florida; with premiers of plays, musicals and even entire theaters, we've had a cultural bumper crop.

So, what can you see to cap off the year of South Florida Theatre? Here's a short list of what's playing this final weekend of 2007:

The Caldwell Theater initiated its new home with John Patrick Shanley's DOUBT. Michael Hall directs a stellar cast that includes Pat Nesbitt and Terrell Hardcastle; there is no doubt at all about how good it is.

Florida Stage is offering up an adaptation of a rare Mark Twain story: A Murder, A Mystery, and A Marriage continues its run through January 13, 2008. They are located in Manalapan, see their web site for directions and show times.

New Vista Theatre is ambitious: not only are they running Funny Girl through Sunday at the West Boca Performing Arts Center in Boca Raton, they are also running Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at the Miniaci Performing Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale through January 6th. Funny Girl closes this weekend, but Jaque Brel will play Boca Raton from January 17 through February 3rd.

If you're down in the Keys, you can catch Gore Vidal's The Best Man at the Waterfront Playhouse in Key West. It runs throught January 12, 2008.

Palm Beach Dramaworks offers The Fourth Wall through February 3rd. This A.R. Gurney play is directed by perennial South Florida favorite, J. Barry Lewis. Dramaworks is located in downtown West Palm Beach.

If you're looking for something to do with the kids, Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater has one more performance of their musical adaptation of Madeline's Christmas on Saturday, at 2pm. The Bemelmans tale comes to life as Madeline does her best to save Christmas for Miss Clavell and the twelve little girls in two straight lines.

THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED by Douglas Carter BeaneLast and by no means least, GableStage is opening The Little Dog Laughed this Saturday at their intimate space at the Biltmore Hotel. And not only are the opening just in time for 2008, they're offering a special New Year's Eve performance at 9pm, followed by a Champagne Supper in the Biltmore's Ballroom. And if that's a lot of action for you, you can stay right there at the hote; the Biltmore is offering special room rates to GableStage patrons for the evening.
