The Scene for December 20, 2013

Still a lot of shows to take in before the holidays, and a bunch of them are closing this week.  Make sure that show you've been putting off seeing isn't in the last chance section, or you're going to miss it.

And remember, theatre tickets make great Christmas gifts - give the gift of theatre.  So don't waste time at the mall,. don't splurge at, go see a show, and stop at the box office for the best gifts for the holiday.

Unless, of course, you can help someone be Batman. 

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

If you find yourself in Key West, you can take in Leading Ladies at the Waterfront Playhouse, through January 11.

A little closer to home, New Theatre is sneaking in their Miami 1-Act Play Festival.  Sadly, it's still not THEIR home; they're performing at Artistic Vibes.
