The Scene for July 24, 2015

Theatre may slow down during the sizzling Florida summer, but it certainly doesn’t stop.  From the launch of a national tour, to the extension of a staging of a Sondhiem classic, there’s something playing in every corner of South Florida.
The South Florida Theatre League’s Summerfest Play Reading Series is moving right along.  Every Monday now through August 31, there is a free reading of an original play written by a local playwright at one of the member theaters.  This Monday, there’s a bookend:  you have the choice of Wrongful Death by Christopher Demos-Brown at the Maltz Jupiter Theater, or Gina Montel’s The Prey presented by The Mangrove Collective at The Little Haiti Cultural Center.
Here’s what’s playing this week on The Scene:


..and closing this week at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is the national tour of Love Letters, featuring Ali McGraw and Ryan O’Neal, who starred in 1970’s Love Story.  It was “the” romantic movie for a decade.  The tour is actually launching from Fort Lauderdale, so you get to see it first, but you’ll need to do it by Sunday.
TheaterXP brings Key West Radio Theatre to life through Saturday; another brief “coming and going” production.
