The Scene for January 18, 2013

Aaand the plays keep coming!  Zev Buffman, a pioneer of the South Florida theatre scene is back in town.  Back when the local theatre community consisted of half a dozen venues, Zev Buffman was the producer winning the most accolades.  The first few years of the Carbonell Awards, it wasn't unusual for it to be a race between Buffman productions at different theaters.

Speaking of theaters of the past, we hear that the Hollywood Playhouse might be picked up by someone interested in producing theater there.  That still leaves all three playhouses (Hollywood, Royal Poinciana and Coconut Grove) in limbo, but they all seem to have a vague future ahead of them, now.

Here's what's playing on The Scene this weekend:


Actors' Playhouse opens its much-anticipated production of Other Desert Cities, through February 10.

Chapter Two opens at the Plaza Theater; the bridge is still out, but it's pretty drive along A1A when you cross at Lake Worth or Boynton Beach.

Damn Yankees opens at the Broward Stage Door Theatre this week, through February 10.

Agatha Christie's The BBC Murders opens at Fort Lauderdale's Parker Playhouse.

If you find yourself in Key West, check out Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks at The Waterfront Playhouse.  It plays through February 16.
