The Scene For February 14, 2014

Lots playing around South Florida this weekend, but not a lot of stuff opening this week.

For those of you who keep asking if there’s anything special to see on Valentine’s Day, The Plaza Theatre is offering People Will Say We’re In Love this Thursday and Friday.  It’s a revue of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most romantic songs.  We also recommend Warhorse, simply one of the best pieces of theatre playing on a stage anywhere.  And of course, Laffing Matterz serves up dinner AND a show, which makes a complete evening for your valentine.


And while it’s not theatre per se,  four time Tony-Award-winner Liza Minelli will certainly be theatrical when she plays the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday; and there are still some pretty good seats left. 

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


Empire Stage revives Making Porn, through February 16.  We’ve lost count of how many times this has played in Fort Lauderdale, so don’t ask us.
