The Scene for May 22, 2009

In apparent response to my recent critique of review practices at the Herald and the Sentinel, Christine Dolen reports that the Herald picked up the Sentinel's reviews because she was out of town, and she says "I plan to catch up with the shows." Does that mean we'll be seeing Herald reviews of Havana Bourgeois, Dumb Show and Yankee Tavern? You'll note that she didn't actually use the phrase "I'll be reviewing them." We'll see.

In the meantime, here's what's playing this Memorial Day Weekend.

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

Amy Wilson
Motherload plays on Friday and two shows Saturday only at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. More about the show here.
Based on creator Amy Wilson's own experience as the mother of three children under five, MOTHER LOAD has audiences lining up from coast to coast for a night of laughs about everything from prenatal yoga to preschool applications. From organic baby food to self-important lactation consultants to the perils of "mommy and me" classes, this laugh-out-loud show is an exposé of the fruitless and ever-challenging quest to be the "perfect" mom.
