The Scene for October 26, 2012

The outlook calls for a bit of rain this weekend, as Tropical Storm Sandy swings past to our east.  Even though Theatre Season is here, Hurricane Season still has a month to go.  But this weekend, the storm is only brushing by.

So it's perfect weekend to see some plays!  A couple of appropriate plays for the season include Little Shop Of Horrors and not one but two productions of The Rocky Horror Show; the trick is that these plays'll treat you.  (And yes, that was as painful for us to write as it shoulda been.  OW.)

Be forewarned; there's a storm of plays getting ready to open next week.

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


Last Call opens - and closes - this weekend at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts.  This is a revised version of the play that wowed audiences at Empire Stage last year; same actor, same production team, just - hopefully - a slightly stronger piece.  Florida Theater On Stage has a story.

Slow Burn Theatre opens Avenue Q, through November 4.  Turn down your speakers if you're at the office; they're blasting music out with their web page. Wouldn't want the boss to find out - he'll want tickets, too.

you still haven't missed...

Actors' Playhouse presents a critically acclaimed Godspell at The Miracle Theater through November 4, 2012.

Stage Door Theatre opens Neil Simon's Rumors in its large hall in Coral Springs, playing through November 11

Talley's Folly plays at Palm Beach Dramaworks through November 11, 2012.

The critics are raving about the strong performances in Driving Miss Daisy, playing at The Plaza Theatre through November 18, 2012.  A reminder; the bridge in Lantana is out, you have to cross either down in Boynton
Beach and head up A1A, or cross up in Lake Worth and drive down A1A. 
Pretty drive. Worth the trip. Promise.
