The Scene for February 21, 2014

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been busy.  But we are going to make it out to see Zoetic Stage’s critically acclaimed production of  ASSASSINS at The Arsht Center, which closes Sunday. 
But we’re intrigued by the National Theatre of Scotland’s offering ; a play set in a bar played in a real bar.  MDC Live Arts brought it over from The Auld Country.  So we might make a second trek down to Miami this week.  (Well, our fifth, truth be told).
On a completely unrelated note, do you know what really sucks?  When you go to peak at a theater’s web page while you’re at work, and suddenly your speakers blare to life because some jerk decided that the web site should automatically play music, alerting your boss that you’re not working on the TPS reports at all.  Don’t you hate when that happens?  We do.  So without naming any names, if you are an artistic director who happens to have a website that plays music, STOP THAT SHIT!
Here's what's playing on the scene this weekend:


The Wick Theatre offers The Full Monty through March 23rd, 2014.
The Plaza Theatre opens Rags, through March 16th.
