The Scene for August 31, 2012

Well, it looks like most of South Florida got through Tropical Storm Isaac without much damage; some cancelled shows on Sunday seem to be the worst for the theatre scene.

A lot of shows are in rehearsal this weekend, but only one opening this Labor Day Weekend.  This may be the slowest weekend for theater this year as the summer season in South Florida runs out of sand, but don't worry; The Season is about to kick off in full form.  And "slow" doesn't mean that there's nothing to see; we have a nice selection for the holiday weekend.

Here's what's happening on The Scene this week:


New Theatre launches its BoomFrog Series with Keeping A-Breast, which opens Saturday and plays through September 16.

you still haven't missed...

Ground Up and Rising
performs its adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth this Sunday at the Miami Botanical Gardens.  Admission is FREE.

A Shayna Maidel plays at the Broward Stage Door Theatre through September 16, 2012.

Island City Stage presents The Twentieth Century Way, its inaugural production, at Empire Stage through September 9, 2012.

Irving Berlin Salutes America plays at The Plaza Theatre through September 9, 2012. Remember that the bridge in Lantana is under construction, so you'll have to cross in Boynton Beach or Lake Worth.  But the drive along A1A should be make up for the detour.

last chance to see...

The Donkey Show has apparently been extended again at The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts through September 2.  Which we only discovered by visiting their website.
