The Scene for March 16, 2012

March is flying by; you're running out of time to rent your tux or buy your gown for the Carbonell Awards; do you have your tickets?  We do. 
We mentioned that we sat with Bill Hirschmann last week at the Mosaic Theatre fundraiser; somehow, the subject of Legends came up. It was a godawful show that was an excuse to tour two Broadway stars that had never shared a stage before, playing to aging Broadway divas who had never shared a stage before being cast a show that was an excuse to tour... well, you get the gist of it. The stars were Mary Martin and Carol Channing, who indeed, had never worked together before.  It was a famously bad play, and Bill was jealous that yours truly actually saw it.

Gary Beach was also in that production, and he's opening this week at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Hello, Dolly, a show that Carol Channing toured into the ground.  He had nothing to do with the failure of Legends, he was just caught up in the mess like everyone else.  With stars Beach, and Vicki Lewis, it's like the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre all over again.

Lots of great stuff opening this week; here's what's playing around South Florida this weekend...
