The Scene for January 6, 2012

Time flies when you're having fun; we've had a long string of great plays.  The Carbonell Awards judges have their work cut out for them. figuring out who makes the nominees list.  The awards started following the calendar year instead of the theatre season a few years back, so it's time for them to figure out who will by vying for the honors to be awarded April 2 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.  And this year, more than any other, the nomination itself is the reward.

And guess what? There's still a lot of great plays to see!
