The Scene for September 9, 2011

There's a new category for local production that are playing one week only.  We're calling it "coming and going" for obvious reasons.  And there are a lot of them this week.

So here's what's happening on The Scene this weekend;


For a change, Rising Action Theatre has a much-anticipated opening; As Bees In Honey Drown opens this week.  The production marks a shift in the company; Andy Rogow is producing, and has Avi Hoffman directing Amy McKenna.  Through October 9.

Alliance Theatre Lab is opening 'night Mother at Barry University's Pelican Theatre (the space often used by Naked Stage). Through September 25.

The African American Performing Arts Community Theatre opens its production of Jelly Belly, through October 2.
