The Scene for June 26, 2009 (UPDATED)

UDPATE: Well, once again there are a couple of theatres who aren't listing themselves on - or anywhere else I could find.  See the listings under OPENINGS, just added in the light of these late additions.

Well, it's summer, it's hot, and no one's surprised. The only time it's not hot, it's all torrential downpour, thunder and lightning - unless you're in South Beach, where you get to add "flooding" to the list. We're hot, we're soaked, we're sitting in the dark watching our car sink beneath the waves....we need to see a show, immediately!


The M Ensemble opened I Just Stopped By to See the Man, by Stephen Jeffreys.  It's not on their website, but you can call them at 305-899-2217.  Be sure to remind them to update their website!  It plays through July 19.

The Sol Theatre Project, which I was under the impression had closed, opened Men on the Verge of a His-panic Breakdown.  They did update their website.

Fouryoucansee Theatre kicks off its new episodic theatre project at New Theatre with its production of Toners In Time, by Marco Ramirez.  Another episode shows up in August, and they're still trying to find a home for the third.  It plays through Sunday.

still playing:

My Name is Rachel Corrie plays at The Alliance Theatre Lab through July 5th.

The New Century has arrived at Gablestage, through July 19, 2009.

I Left My Heart...A Tribute to Tony Bennett, at Broward Stage Door, June 12 - Aug 2.

Bent plays at Rising Action Theatre Company through July 19.

Twelfth Night at Florida Atlantic University. I don't often plug FAU - or any college - shows, but one must recall that only about twenty-something years ago you could have watched future Broadway star Mark Kudisch and the critically acclaimed Elena Maria Garcia of Summer Shorts on the FAU stage. Besides, it's summer, they're doing Shakespeare... and it's inside where it's air-conditioned....through July 12.

CELIA: The Life & Music of Celia Cruz, at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, through June 21.

last chance to see:

Signature Shorts, presented by City Theatre at the Broward Center through June 28. These are the kinds of plays that put Summer Shorts on the map.

Under Shorts, presented by City Theatre at the Broward Center through June 28. Shorts for those with a more...mature...inclination.
