UPDATED 2x: The Scene for April 17, 2009

If you read some of the other theatre blogs* around town, you might be under the impression that there are six professional theatre productions opening around South Florida this week.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

There are, in fact, eight NINE TEN professional productions opening this week. (I missed Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival)(AND Broward Stage Door. Honestly, get your listings turned in!) True, one's a national tour, and another is a remount of an earlier production, but they weren't playing last week, and they are playing this week, and that sounds like an opening to me.

* Theatre Row and Drama Queen. And I'm not disparaging them, just teasing them a little.

Just a reminder: Clicking on a highlighted show title leads you to the review summaries for that show.


Broward Stage Door opens Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music. It plays through May 24.

Palm Beach Shaksepeare Festival opens Dead Man's Cell Phone, this weekend only. This production will be notable different than Mosaic Theatre's recent production, according to the Palm Beach Post.

I Ain't Yo Uncle, The New Jack Revisionist Uncle Tom's Cabin opens at M Ensemble on Thursday. Read about it in the Miami Herald.

In Darfur opens Thursday at Mosaic Theatre.

Mauritius opens Thursday at New Theatre. Read about it on BroadwayWorld.

Something's Afoot is in previews at the Caldwell Theater, for a Friday evening opening. Interviews and some clips from the show on uVu blog.

A Little Night Music opens Friday at Broward Stage Door Theatre.

The Hate U Gave: The Tupac Shakur Story returns to Ground Up and Rising, opening Friday in Homestead.

No Child opens Saturday at GableStage

Fiddler on the Roof at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts

what's playing

Sol Theater snuck their "limited engagement" of The Vagina Monologues into the scene without much fanfare: I missed announcing their opening last Saturday. But it's open and running through April 26.

Mad Cat Theatre Company will be running Broadsword at the Light Box, through May 2, 2009.

Cagney! runs through May 3, 2009 at Florida Stage. Four out of five critics recommend it, and the fifth says you should see it anyway.

Rising Action Theatre runs The Andrews Brothers through May 17, 2009.

passing through...

Jersey Boys will be rocking the
Broward Center for the Performing Arts
through May 3.

But that's not all:
have lunch with Rick Elice,
one of the co-writers of the show,
on Saturday, April 18th.

Topol stars in Fiddler on the Roof
at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
through this Sunday, April 19.

Yes, this is the same Topol who starred in that movie.
I mean Fiddler - the movie version of this musical.
(Yes, and in Flash Gordon, too. Sheesh.)
