The Scene for November 16, 2012

Hard to believe that it's almost Thanksgiving; wasn't it just Labor Day?

Well, the 24 Hour Theater Project has come and gone; you can read about it on Florida Theater On Stage or The Drama Queen. It's back to an old formula since the Caldwell Theatre closed; the Amadeos producing, and Joe Adler once again making his stage available for the benefit of others.  He's a real mensch, that Joe.  Kudos.

A lot of shows closing this week; if you haven't decided, let's make Saturday "South Florida Theatre Scene" night at the Plaza Theatre for Driving Miss Daisy; you don't want to miss this dream cast performing a great play on such an intimate stage. We'd watch any of those three actors read a phone book.

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


Mosaic Theater opens Conor McPherson's The Birds, through December 9.

The Miami Theatre Center kicks off a new era with its original adaptation of Chekov's Three Sisters.  But I hope they fix their lousy website, soon.  It's almost as bad as Area Stage's.

Laffing Matterz is back at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts; new show, new chef, new seasons of laughs.

you still haven't missed...

Venus In Fur plays at GableStage through December 9, 2012.

The Women's Theatre Project production of Delval Divas ends its run at the Willow Theater on November 18, 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.
