The Scene for August 15, 2014

Time was that summer lasted from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  But in South Florida, summer vacation is over for students, and the kids are back in school.  Those of us who have no children still have a couple of weeks of summer left to travel before the fall arrives and we all have to get back to looking busy.  Or, you know, actually being busy.
But we still have a couple of weeks of Summer Theatre Fest left!

Monday will bring the latest entry in the Theatre League’s Summer Theatre Fest Reading Series, and it’s another double-header!  In Broward, a staged reading of Susan Westfall’s Two Weekends and a Day, staged by City Theatre at Empire Stage.  In Miami-Dade, Paul Tei’s Instant Classic is is staged by Mad Cat Theatre at the Miami Theatre Center.
