The Scene for April 18 (updated)

The Miami Herald enjoyed Six Dancing Lessons in Six Weeks, produced by Rising Action Theater, as well as Tuesdays with Morrie at the Caldwell Theater. Christine Dolen was less than enthralled with Groucho, now playing at Broward Stage Door.

The Sun-Sentinel, however, enjoyed Gabe Kaplan's portrayal of Groucho. Bill Hirshman also liked Tuesdays with Morrie.

Palm Beach Shakepeare Festival just dodged a bullet: the leading lady for their upcoming production of W. Somerset Maugham's The Circle had to leave the show due to illness. Like so many of our local theaters, there is no understudy. But the show must go on, and will, thanks to a casting shuffle, according to the Palm Beach Post. Hap liked Groucho, but didn't care for Tuesdays with Morrie.

Not reviewed, just opened, and only playing through Saturday is Self Help: The Comedy. This two hander is playing in the Abdo New River Room at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. You may be scratching your head and wondering which of the two theaters that is. The Abdo New River Room is the banquet hall located between the Au-Rene and Amaturo theaters. Yesterday, IATSE stagehands from Local 500 turned the room into an intimate 200 seat theater. You can learn about the show and reviews from prior productions HERE.
