The Scene for May 18, 2012

The Rainy Season has come early to South Florida, while the 2012-2013 Theater Season comes into its final weeks.  But that doesn't meant that the theatre stops; it blends seamlessly into the Summer Theatre Season.  This isn't your grandpa's South Florida scene; we have 52 weeks of theater these days.

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