The Scene for January 4, 2013

It's a new year, which puts us smack dab in the middle of the theatre season here in South Florida; and what a season it's been!  From all the tiny companies sharing the postage-stamp sized Empire Stage, to regional powerhouses like Actors' Playhouse and Maltz Jupiter theater,  to our three major performing arts center, we've been able to see nationally prominent productions of world-class plays.

And while we've had a lot of great shows so far this season, there are even more great shows to come - it's a great time to be a theatre-lover in South Florida.

Here's what's playing on The Scene this first weekend of 2013:


The Interview opens at The Women's Theatre Project, through January 20.

Mad Cat Theatre Company opens Christina Wong's Cat Lady at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse.

Island City Stage presents Pig Tale through February 2 at Empire Stage.
