We can sympathize with the critics and Carbonell judges; a lot of shows opening this week and next, which means a lot of shows playing all over the place. It's been a while since the theatre scene was this packed. Everything's been late the last couple of weeks because we're working on those shows, too.
We don't usually plug opera on The Scene, but Florida Grand Opera is preparing a very rare staging of Mourning Becomes Electra, a fifty year old opera whose previous productions could be counted on one hand. It's based on the trilogy of plays by Eugene O'Neill, and we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that this will be a historic production. It only plays two performances next week at the Broward Center, so get your tickets now.
This Sunday, the Theatre League will participate in the Coconut Grove Bed Race; we hope to see you there, cheering on their entry in the Show Bed category - "Get in Bed with the Arts!"
