The Scene for April 27, 2012

We've had a nice little break in the weather, unusual this late in the South Florida season.  And the weather isn't the only thing harking back a couple of months; there's lots of plays to see on South Florida Stages.

Here's the scene for this week-


The Irish Theatre of Florida opens The Country Boy at the Crest Theatre, through May 5.

The Red Barn Theatre in Key West opens Short Attention Span Theatre, through May 12.  Sounds like the perfect break between pitchers of margaritas.

you still haven't missed...

A Measure of Cruelty plays at Mosaic Theatre through May 13; an intense drama ripped from the headlines.

Little Shop of Horrors plays at the Broward Stage Door Theatre through May 20; if you like the show, you'll like this.

Last Call plays at Empire Stage through May 5, 2012; a surprising little hit for First Step Productions and Empire Stage.

Avenue Q comes to the Andrews Living Arts Studio in what's apparently an open-ended run; luke-warm notices, but the buzz on the street is that it's pretty good.

Laffing Matterz plays the Broward Center's Abdo New River Room, for its third season of dinner and comedy; still pleasing the crowds.

last chance to see...

Music! Music! Music! winds up at The Plaza Theatre this Sunday, April 29.  Haven't heard much buzz on the streets, but Missy McArdle is in it, and she always delivers.

"Master Harold" ...and the boys finishes its critically acclaimed run at Palm Beach DramaWorks
onApril 29, 2012.  Not sure how many seats are left, but it's worth snatching them up.

The Stage Door production of The All Night Strut! at their second stage in Coral Springs through April 29th.  A very pleasant night of music; you'll be tapping your toes.

passing through...

Robert Dubac's Free Range Thinking comes to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, for a limited engagement that ends this Saturday.  He has a video.

The Boca Raton Theatre Guild presents Lady Day at the Emerson Bar & Grill, through this Sunday only.

The House Theatre of Chicago brings its production of Death and Harry Houdini to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, through May 20.
