The Scene for June 18, 2010

In addition to Bill Hirschman's review of Drowsy Chaperone, we've also gotten some good buzz about it off Facebook.  And you'll be amazed wathcing Bert dance up the proscenium in Mary Poppins.  Actually, he dances up the side, across the top (upside down) and down the other side!  Stunning!

Lots of great theatre playing across South Florida this weekend; seeing a play is a great way to beat the heat.


Speech and Debate opens at Gablestage on Saturday, June 19.  Joe Adler has directed every single show at Gablestage - until now.  He's tapped Amy London to take on this play with music; which makes sense, since there's as much choreography as simple staging to this one.  Hopefully, he's busy nailing down his proposed stewardship of The Coconut Grove Playhouse.

The fledgling company Andrew Arts Studio offers its production freshstaging of Godspell through June 26th.  No reviews out on this one, but I saw it, and while some of the young voices lacked the strength to overcome the recorded accompaniment, the enthusiasm of the largely teen cast more than made up for it.

Ian Bruce's Groundswell plays at Mosaic Theatre through June 27, 2010.

City Theatre presents Summer Shorts, a play festival with two series: Signature Shorts, consisting of kind of short plays that put City Theatre on the map, and Under Shorts, racier adult themed plays.  The series plays in rotating rep at the Arsht Center through June 26th.  After that, they move to Nova Southeastern's University School for a limited engagement the first weekend in July.

Milk Milk Lemonade plays at Empire Stage through June 27.
