The Scene for October 11, 2013

Yes, the theatre season is really here.  We have both local professional productions and national Broadway tours opening across South Florida this weekend

The Broward Center’s construction crew rallied and had the front entrance cleared for the opening of Chicago – even for the valet parking!  Kudos to a smooth opening.  We’ll post reviews as they come up, but we can safely say that it’s “all that.”  After all, not many national tours bring along the Broadway stars.
Other odds 'n' ends; the Theatre League is still looking for a few runners to participate in the Coconut Grove Bed Race; contact Andie Arthur if you're interested. 
The 24 Hour Theatre Festival is coming up on October 28: contact The Naked  Stage if you’re interested in volunteering some support.  This year, Palm Beach Dramaworks is hosting the event, in which several one-act plays will be conceived, written, cast, and staged within a 24 hour period.
Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend.

Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theater opens its production of Ruthless! The Musical.  Through November 3.
Of Mice and Men opens at Palm Beach Dramaworks, through November 10.
The Plaza Theatre opens Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs, through October 27.
