The Scene for September 7, 2012

We can't live in denial anymore; the summer is over.  Kids are back to school, the MDA Tele-thon has come and gone (yes, they still hold it.  But without Jerry Lewis, it's even less interesting than it was before).  Yes, summer's officially over, and theatres are gearing up for the season, with a number of shows opening over the next few weekends.  If you love opening nights, or you're a reviewer, you have a busy weekend ahead.

Florida Theater On Stage
is running a series of in-depth articles about the state of South Florida theater; if you haven't been reading it, we highly recommend it.  In the meantime, we'll fight the first problem mentioned in today's article by telling you what's playing in south Florida this week. bHere's what's happening on The Scene:


The African American Performing Arts Community Theatre (AAPACT) opens its production of The Dutchman, a classic play written by Amiri Baraka (the playwright formerly known as LeRoi Jones).

Lynne Nottage's Ruined opens at GableStage this Saturday.  Through October 7.

Alliance Theatre Lab
kicks off Home Sweet Funeral Home, its first ten minute play festival.  It opens today at the Pelican Theatre at Barry University.

you still haven't missed...

New Theatre presents Keeping A-Breast at the Roxy Performing Arts Center through September 16, 2012.

A Shayna Maidel plays at the Broward Stage Door Theatre through September 16, 2012 has been extended through September 30.

conservatory & community...

The Laramie Project plays this Saturday September 8 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre as part of their Emerging Artists series.

Actors' Rep presents its Youth Actors' Guild production of Excerpts from The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) this Friday and Saturday.

last chance to see...

Island City Stage winds up its production of The Twentieth Century Way this weekend at Empire Stage.

Irving Berlin Salutes America ends its run at The Plaza Theatre this Sunday. 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.
