The Scene for June 8, 2012

Wow.  There are a lot of plays opening this weekend!  Our sympathies and thanks to all the reviewers who will be out and about trying to review all of them.  And it's not like they can let it slide, because there's another slew of shows opening next week, too. 

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


New Theatre opens Nilo Cruz's A Bicycle Country at the Roxy Performing Arts Center; Artistic Director Ricky Martinez returns to the stage after a long absence.

Adam Rapp's The Edge Of Our Bodies opens at Mosaic Theatre this weekend.

The Broward Stage Door opens The Immigrant, based on the true story of the playwright's grandparents coming to America.  And in case that's not enough, they're also opening Backwards in High Heels: The Ginger Musical, too.  In the same building.  I know, right?

Speaking of tribute shows, Don’t Rain On Our Parade – A Tribute To Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, and Carole King opens at the Plaza Theatre for a brief run.  Not sure what the through-line is - that their first initials are BBC?  They're all women?  But Missy McArdle's in it, so go see it.

Empire Stage opens Love Scenes the weekend.
