The Scene for June 22, 2012

Don't you believe for a second that there's no theater in the summer.  This is one of the busiest weekends we've seen in months. City Theater and Slow Burn are both opening shows with very brief runs, so see those sooner rather than later; and four companies are winding up runs; New Theatre's A Bicycle Country has received particularly good reviews.  We have a couple of college offerings this week, and something for the kids, too.

Here's what's playing on a very very busy Scene this weekend:


City Theater opens Standing On Ceremony at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts tonight. This one only plays through Sunday, don't miss it!  Featuring Bruce Vilanch, Bryan Batt, and Nicole Henry, and some of South Florida's finest actors.

Slow Burn Theatre Company opens its production of the musical Xanadu this weekend.  But it only plays through next weekend, so see it soon!
