The Scene for May 11, 2012

Can you believe it? It's already time for the Cappie Awards!  The Critic and Awards Program (CAP) holds its tenth annual gala at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts this coming Tuesday, May 15.  It's the "capping" event to a year of high school theatre production.  Read our 2010 Cappies Story.

Another special event this weekend; Outré Theatre presents a concert reading of tick...tick... BOOM, the autobiographical musical by RENT creator John Larson.  It's this Monday at Nova Southeastern University's Performance Theatre at the Don Taft University Center.

Here's what's playing on The Scene this weekend:


Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater opens Becky's New Car, through June 3, 2012.
