The Scene for March 29, 2013

The weather's been running hot and cold the last week or so in South Florida; literally.  It was in the 80's one day, plunging to the 40's the next.

But the theatre scene is nothing but smoking hot; we caught Janet Dacal filling in for Sarah Amengual in In The Heights at Actor's Playhouse; Janet was excellent, but so was the entire production, which played to a packed house on a Wednesday night. 

And there's star power to spare in Bare, the Musical, playing at Broward Center this weekend.  The cast includes Jodi Langel, who is nominated for a Carbonell for her performance in Next To Normal last year at Actors' Playhouse, as was musical director Eric Alsford.

Oh, and have we mentioned the Carbonell Awards Ceremony is Monday?  No fooling!  If you're not going to be there, keep an eye on our Twitter feed; we're going to try to post updates throughout the evening.

And we'll be at the after-party at Revolution Live, hosted once again by The South Florida Theatre League.  Yes, after two years of being crowded into The Green Room, the event is back in the space that is immortalized in the movie Rock of Ages.

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


Dreamchild Productions opens Bare, The Musical at Broward Center and closes Saturday.
