The Scene for October 14, 2011

The South Florida Theatre Festival continues; the next official event is 360 Storytelling on Monday, October 17.  And since that's really not enough, lots of plays are opening at South Florida theaters, not including the tours.

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


Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater opens its much-anticipated production of Hairspray, featuring the Playhouse's artistic director, David Arisco, as Edna Turnblad.

As long as you're in Coral Gables, New Theatre opens Edith Can Shoot Things And Hit Them, slated to be their last production in their current space.

Women's Theatre Project opens Women Drivers through November 6 at Sixth Star Studios in Fort Lauderdale's funky F.A.T. Village Arts District.

Also in the F.A.T. Village, Andrews Living Arts Studio opens its production of The Rocky Horror Show.

Head straight up Flagler from the FAT Village to see the Infinite Abyss production of Mitzi's Abortion at Empire Stage.  It plays through November 5th.

The Stage Door Theatre opens its production of Lend Me A Tenor, through October 30.

For the interactive set, John & Juan's Wedding opens at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.  He's Cuban, while he's Jewish, and they're both gay!   Tony & Tina will seem tame in comparison.  Through October 23.

While we don't often cover college shows, when the University of Miami Theatre Department partners with the Arsht Center to present a Nilo Cruz translation of Federico García Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba, you cover it.  That it stars Isable Moreno and Elena Maria Garcia, it only increases the interest.  It plays at the Arsht's Carnival Studio Theater through October 30.

you still haven't missed...

Karen Stephens reprises her tour-de-force performance of Bridge & Tunnel, this time at Bob Carter's Actors' Workshop and Repertory Company. But there's a little more time to see it this go-round; it's playing through October 22.

TEMfest 2011, Miami's Spanish-language theatre festival, runs through October 23 at various venues around Miami.

coming and going...

Miami-Dade College presents Conor Lovett in Beckett's First Love, playing Friday and Saturday only at the Wolfson Auditorium.

South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center presents the Asolo Repertory Theatre production of  Hamlet Redux, on Friday, October 14.

passing through...

It played on Broadway, but it's not really a Broadway show; Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles plays at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts through October 16.  A must-see for Beatles fans.

Aventura Arts & Cultural Center presents Cups, A Play.  Joni Sheram traces her life through undergarments.  Through October 22.

Actors' Playhouse presents Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day on Saturdays through November 19.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts presents Sesame Street Live! Elmo's Super Heroes this Saturday and Sunday.
