The Scene for January 17, 2014

It's been a busy week for south Florida theatre; the Carbonell Awards have announced the nominations for 2013, there's going to be a playhouse in Coconut Grove in our future, oh, and BroadwayWorld announced their award winners for the year.
And that's in addition to all the theaters who are in process of opening plays this week.
On a more somber note, Barry Steinman, a longtime fixture in the South Florida theatre scene, passed away last month.  He worked at and supported every major theater organization in South Florida, and was a founding member and first president of The South Florida Theatre League.  The Miami Herald reports that a memorial service is being held Saturday at GableStage.
Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend:

 A Chorus Line opens at The Maltz Jupiter Theatre, through February 2.
Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater offers End of the Rainbow, through February 9.
