The Scene for October 18, 2013

We caught the Actors’ Playhouse production of Ruthless! this week.  We conclude that Julia Dale may bring in the crowds, but Amy Miller Brennan will bring them to their feet.  Kudos!

District Stage Company is so new they don’t have a website yet, but they’re staging Viva Broadway at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center this weekend, featuring Jon Secada, Janet Dacal, Henry Gainza, Alex Lacamoire, and Nina Lafarga, to name but a few.

Monday and Tuesday, catch The Plaza Theatre’s Tribute to James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt & Friends, featuring Irene Adjan and Barry Tarallo.

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.


Slow Burn Theatre Company opens its production of Next To Normal at the West Boca Performing Arts Center this weekend.  It moves to the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center on November 7.  This extension makes it eligible for the Carbonell Awards for the first time, and from what we heard at their rehearsals, look out!

The African American Performing Arts Community Theatre opens August Wilson’s Fences at the Wendell Narcisse Theater in the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center.
