The Scene for May 15, 2009

Good news! The Palm Beach Post finally reviewed At Home At The Zoo! And they managed to see The Wizard of Oz at Kravis Center. Their new website still bites the wax tadpole, but at least it has theatre reviews again. And while I hate the layout and basic design of PB Pulse, it does have RSS feeds for reviews and theatre news, so you can see their latest stories in the Sidebar.

On with this week's Scene:

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


Havana Bourgeois opens at Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater.
Set in Cuba from 1958-1960, Havana Bourgeois explores the impact of Fidel Castro’s Revolution on the Cuban middle class

Yankee Tavern opens at Florida Stage.
In a decaying bar on the ground floor of the abandoned Yankee Hotel, a young couple and a devoted conspiracy theorist debate the truth behind 9/11.

"...a mesmerising, utterly persuasive account of a classic tabloid sting…a furious, black-comic satire on the bankrupt values of our tabloid culture." —Daily Telegraph (London).
