The Scene for July 20, 2012

This week, there are not only two productions of HAIR, but now there are two productions of Hairspray.  We don't know why.  On a more somber note, The Naked Stage has pushed back it's opening of The Turning of the Screw until July 27, due to an illness in the cast (and not so the director can attend BATMAN:The Dark Knight Rises, no matter what certain gadflies claim).

And don't forget to indulge in A Taste of Summer Theatre.

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


Teatro en Miami Studio opens Smile, through August 19.

Lady Day opens at Broward Stage Door, through August 26.

The Donkey Show is going full tilt at The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

The XXVII International Hispanic Theatre Festival also plays at the Arsht Center.  Never fear; some of it's in English, some is super-titled, and several pieces have no speech at all.

Cabaret Verboten plays at the Theatre at Arts Garage through July 30, 2012.
