The Scene for April 1, 2011.

Well, it's no April Fool's prank when we say that this is still a great week for the theater - it's the last weekend you can take advantage of "The Letts-tival"* in Coral Gables;  Actors' Playhouse is closing half the "Letts-tival," August: Osage County on Sunday.

Two of the three major performing arts centers are hosting Broadway musicals this weekend - with In the Heights being the end of the line for this particualar tour.  But they're going out strong, and it's well worth seeing if you haven't done so yet.

And do you have your tickets to Theatre Prom yet?  Tick tock, people!  The 35th Annual Carbonell Awards are Monday!
