The Scene for July 24, 2009

The summer is racing past: I thought the season was busy, but I haven't stopped, and neither has the rest of South Florida.


Viva Bourgeois at Mad Cat Theatre Company in Miami opens Friday. See what this Gen-X company does with Moliere; it will be worth the trip.

Private Lives at Palm Beach DramaWorks , runs through August 16th.

passing through:

Verve Central Productions presents Still Untitled at the Rising Action Theatre this weekend. It's an original work by Matt May, based on the memoirs of his friend Terrance Olear. Fittingly, May directs Olear in this production. Read more about it on

last chance to see:
Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival presents A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Seabreaze Amphitheater in Jupiter's Carlin Park. Admission is free, but it is outdoors, and weather can play a factor.

Ground Up And Rising's wandering production of On An Average Day is set close this weekend at ArtSouth in Homestead. You don't get much more South in South Florida.
