The Scene For October 22, 2010

The season is really cooking - the reviews are still coming in, and the plays are still opening.  Life is good.

And don't forget, there are only a few days left to the South Florida Theatre Festival; click through to their website to see what's coming up next.   But the SoFla Theatre Festival isn't the only theatre festival in South Florida this weekend; TEMFest 2010 is being run by Teatro En Miami, October 22-25.  Read about it in The Miami Herald.

But the closing party for the SoFla Theatre Festival is this Monday - we won't have another excuse to gather the Theatre Scene until the Carbonell Awards in the spring.  It's being held at The Green Room in Fort Lauderdale, a few blocks from the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and it's as close to the center of South Florida as you're going to get.  It's free for members of (aka The Theatre League of South Florida), but only $20 for non-members.

So here's what's playing on The Scene this week...


Stage Door Theatre opens its production of On The Town, and it will play through December 5, 2010.
