The Scene for March 18

In the odd schedule of life, The Scene for Friday the 18th of March actually comes out on THURSDAY, which is St. Patrick's Day.  Now somehow, this celebration of a sainted Irish monk as turned into an orgy of green beer and whisky that would have appalled the devout Catholic cleric. 

So we'll just point out that if you want to celebrate your Irish heritage in a more appropriate manner, there are options.  For example, you can catch Sir James Galway and his wife in concert at The Broward Center.  But if you must have the green beer, you can make a stop along Himmarshee Street first, then stumble up the hill for an evening with a Gaelic master.  And if you're farther north, there are still tickets to see The Celtic Tenors at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.


opening...

The Alliance Theatre Lab opens its world premiere production of David Michael Sirois' The Brothers Beckett, which will run through April 3.

Edge Theatre is opening Don Juan in Hell, but they don't have a website, so I can't link to anything.  But the press release mentions a lot of dead people who won't be in this production.  It's this Saturday and Sunday only, and we are told to note that "this location is in North Miami."  You have been duly warned.
