The Scene for December 28, 2012

Here we are: the final weekend of theatre for 2012.

It's been a very busy year, lots of really memorable shows; but three companies closed.  Broward County has lost its only resident Equity theater company, Mosaic Theater.  Promethean wasn't a major company, but produced excellent shows, and the venerable Caldwell Theater Company ended three decades of legendary production.  We've also seen some new players

If you're looking for something to do for New Year's Eve, it looks like the Stage Door Theatre has shows at its Broward and Miami Beach locations on the day, as does the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.  Also, we happen to know that there are still seats available for B.B. King at the Broward Center; not really theatre, but hey, it's B.B. King.

Here's what's playing on The Scene this last weekend of 2012:


Broward Stage Door opens The World Goes 'Round on January 28, 2012.

A Delicate Balance plays at Palm Beach Dramaworks through January 6, 2013.

Kravis Center for the Performing Arts has settled with the stagehands' union, so Jersey Boys is now playing through January 6. Expect very full houses due to the shows canceled during the strike.
