The Scene for February 20, 2009

Another busy week on the South Florida Theatre Scene! The Carbonell nominees have been announced, a bunch of plays have been reviewed, a lot of plays are opening, and Conundrum Stages is reading Harold Pinter.

This week, I happened to pay attention to ticket prices - and was surprised to find out just how competitive ticket prices are right now. Even some of the larger halls have prices as low as some of the smaller theatres in town. And everyone has some kind of discount offer available; even if you don't see it, ask when you call.

Just a reminder that when the show's title appears as a hyperlink, clicking on it leads to all the reviews and articles I've found about that show. Clicking on the theater takes you to their website to find out dates, times, and how to buy tickets.


You can attend an opening night of a play every evening this weekend! I can't remember the last time that happened.

SISTERS! opens Thursday at the African American Performing Arts Community Theater.

The Weir opens Friday at Palm Beach Drama Works. There's a great article about this production at, and the Drama Queen speaks up, too.

Dangerous, the world premier of Michael McKeever's latest play, opens Sunday at Caldwell Theater. The Drama Queen has some background on this steamy new drama, and so does BroadwayWorld.

  1. I know you commented on TR's spelling; let's have some checks and balances here: It's Pinter, not Pintner.

    I'm just sayin'.

  2. Fair enough, and thanks for the correction!
