The Scene for February 17, 2012 - UPDATED

UPDATE: we missed the opening of The Plaza Theatre, which is operating Florida Stage's old space in Manalapan.

We've got some hot shows opening this week in South Florida, not the least of which is RED, which you may remember played at GableStage earlier this season.  This is a rare opportunity to compare two productions by major regional theater companies.  Delou Africa's Sundiata, playing only one show this Saturday, will be a magical show for the whole family.  And of course, while every show that opens at DramaWorks is a production to make time for, The Pitman Players will make an interesting book-end to Billy Elliot, coming soon to Broward Center; the same man wrote both scripts.

Here's what's playing around South Florida this weekend...


The Plaza Theatre bursts onto the theatre scene with My Musical Comedy Life, Donna McKechnie's one-woman show.  But catch it fast; it's Friday and Saturday only.

RED returns to South Florida; this time, the Maltz Jupiter Theater offers its own production of this Tony-award winning play.
