The Scene for August 30, 2013

This is it - Labor Day Weekend.  The summer, for all practical intents and purposes, is over.  One play opening, a number of shows closing this weekend.  But we warn you, NEXT weekend is wall-to-wall openings.

The South Florida Theater League's entry in The Great Grove Bed Race will found at Shorts Gone Wild, presented by City Theatre and Island City Stage at Empire Stage.  Sounds more like "colloboration gone wild" to us.) Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
The race was originally set for Labor Day, but the organizers have moved it to November 3, instead. Probably so the runners can be fueled by leftover Halloween candy.  But it also gives you time to sign up as a bed runner.  Um, bed team.  Um.  To run with the bed.  Whatever.  Contact Andie Arthur a the South Florida Theatre League if you're interested in helping to run the bed.

Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend.


The Broward Stage Door Theatre opens Moon Over Buffalo this weekend, through October 6.  At least, several calendars claim that - we can't find it on their website.  So we called - it's on.  But come on, guys.  You have exactly ONE outlet to the world that you are in absolute control of.  If you're in business, act like it.  Sheesh.

last chance to see...
Mad Cat Theatre Company's original production of Blow Me winds up its much publicized run at the Miami Theater Center  on Sunday
Waistwatchers The Musical completes its return engagment at The Plaza Theatre through September 1, 2013.  And boy, does the Plaza's new website totally blow, or what?  They've now taken the title "worst theatre website in South Florida."  Congratulations!
The Island City Stage presentation of City Theater's Shorts Gone Wild at Empire Stage winds it up this weekend. And remember, tonight is your last chance to Get In Bed With The Arts until The Great Grove Bed Race.
