The Scene for March 15, 2013

The temperature's taking another plunge as we prepare this week's offering of plays.. wait, wasn't that last week?  But my thermometer... never mind.

We're only a few weeks from the Carbonell Awards ceremony at the Broward Center.  You don't have to wear a tux or evening gown. 
But many of us will be, and it may not be who you expect.  And that's
not even considering the more.. exotic... attire sported by some.

And no, we're not talking about the new Pope, who as far as we know will not be attending this year's ceremony.  But word is he might make the Coconut Grove Bed Race, with a special Vatican entry, complete with a plastic Jesus on the headboard.  Or so we hear.

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


The Theatre at Arts Garage opens Lungs, a new play by Duncan Macmillan.

Amy Herzog's 4,000 Miles opens this weekend at Gablestage. It plays through April 14.

Miami Theatre Center opens Pie Solo this Friday, through March 30.
