You can tell next weekend is Thanksgiving; a lot of shows are winding up their runs this weekend so their cast and crew can spend the holidays feasting on turkey.
That’s not to say there won’t be any plays next week; there will. Chief among them will be the national tour of Book of Mormon, which loads in next week at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. While the run is nearly sold out, tickets can still be had. Better yet, they’ll be holding a ticket lottery before every show, where a few remaining unsold tickets can be had for $25 a pop.
The South Florida Theatre League has announced the Remy Award recipients; they will be presented at the League’s Holiday Party on December 2nd at Stache; the party is free for League members, and $25 for non-members. Come in and hob knob with the Remy winners, as well as the Silver Palm honorees – the Silver Palm Awards shares the League party. The location? Right down the street from the Broward Center, at the former home of the Green Room, behind Club Revolution. It’s the League’s 20th anniversary, so it’ll be a blowout.
