This summer is just flying by! Once upon a time, this would be considered the off season, and all the theaters would have laid off their staffs for the summer. But that was then; now we have a lot of good theatre happening from one end of South Florida to the other.
Here's what's happening on The Scene this week:
Cathy Rigby returns as Peter Pan, this weekend at The Kravis Center. No cracks about her age; she's grown older, not up.
The Sounds of Rodgers & Hart will fill The Plaza Theatre this weekend. But you'll have to cross the intercoastal in Boynton Beach or Lake Worth; the bridge in Lantana is undergoing reconstruction.
