The Scene for April 24, 2009 (UPDATED)

(grumble grumble grumble) Why the heck doesn't Stage Doors make sure they are listed at either of the calenders covering South Florida so that I don't have people emailing me updates hour and hours after I post the upcoming openings? Anywho, I've added Odd Couple to this week's openings, and I wish they'd get serious out there about communications.

It's been a busy week at The Scene; we live-blogged from the Broward Center, we introduced a new layout, and we've been scrambling to keep up with the reviews coming in for the ten shows that opened six shows seen by critics last week.

Things are still cooking; this week, we feature 18 plays playing across all three counties that make up South Florida. Something is playing close to you; don't miss it.


The Interview opens Thursday at the Women's Theater Project.

The Odd Couple opens Thursday at Broward Stage Door. Neil Simon, you say? Why bother, you say? Ken Clement as Oscar against Dan Kelley's Felix, I say.

At Home At The Zoo opens Friday at Palm Beach Drama Works. This is Edward Albee's prequel to his Zoo Story.

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