The Scene for April 11, 2008

The Herald recommends "From the Missippi Delta" and "Tuesdays with Morrie." The former production, mounted by the M Ensemble, features Carolyn Johnson, Brandii Edwards, and Carey Hart. The latter, produced at the Caldwell Theater, features Peter Haig and recent Carbonell winner Jim Ballard.

The Sun-Sentinel's Stage Bill is heavy on choral and orchestral performances, but RENT is playing at Palm Beach's Kravis Center Meanwhile, Marc Kudisch, a Broward native, brings it home with Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway. He appears with five other performers and Neil Berg at the Piano at Fort Lauderdale's Parker Playhouse.

I can't find a Stage Capsules in the current edition of The New Times, but Brandon liked the current version of Forbidden Broadway.

The Palm Beach Post also recommends Tuesdays with Morrie, and gives us some background about how Caldwell's Micheal Hall came to produce it in his new space. Camelot plays the Kravis Center, starring Lou Diamond Phillips. But the most interesting show of all might be Gabe Kaplan playing Groucho Marx in the aptly titled GROUCHO. This is an updated version of Groucho: A Life In Revue. And guess what? Kaplan is on the short list of performers that Groucho had personally approved to portray him! It's playing at the Broward Stage Door Theater through May 11.
