The Scene for June 25, 2010

If I didn't happen to know that there's still a lot of plays to come, all the shows closing this week would worry me.  But worry not; more stuff is on the horizon.

But if you've been putting off seeing stuff, you're going to have a busy weekend...


A Midsummer Night's Dream opens at Florida Atlantic University, through July 25th.  Their summer series always brings in professional actors to work with graduate students from the theatre department.

still playing:

Speech and Debate plays  at Gablestage through July 18.  The critics - and audiences - are raving about this one.

City Theatre's production of  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.

Stage Door Theatre's production of The Drowsy Chaperone plays through July 25

passing through...

CATS is back at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, through June 27, 2010.  Apparently it hasn't reached its ninth life quite yet.

Cameron Mackintosh's new spin on Mary Poppins with songs from the Disney movie ends it critically acclaimed visit at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, June 27, 2010.

Bjorn Again -- the ABBA Experience! plays on night only on June 27 at the Parker Playhouse.  Just a little something to tide  you over until Mama Mia swings back through town.

Girl Play, the Second Annual Lesbian Play Reading Festival, at The Women's Theatre Project this weekend only.

last chance to see...

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

Bruce Graham's Coyote on a Fence plays at Alliance Theatre Lab through June 27.

Milk Milk Lemonade plays at Empire Stage through June 27.

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.

The M Ensemble presents Lydia Diamond's adaptation of The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison's first novel, through June 27, 2010.

Mother/Son plays at Rising Action Theatre through June 27.

This is the final weekend for Laffing Matterz  at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts; its final show for this season is Sunday, June 27. It will be returning to the Broward Center's intimate Abdo New River Room in November.

for kids...

City Theatre is offering a new musical by Lisa Loeb and Marco Ramirez, Camp Kappawanna, through 27, 2010.  An article about the show, including a video clip, is up at the Miami Herald.

Actors' Playhouse presents Pippi Longstocking, through August 7, 2010.
