When Jeff, a luckless young security guard, is drawn into a local murder investigation, loyalties are strained to the breaking point. As Jeff's tightly wound supervisor is called to bear witness against his troubled brother, and an attractive rookie cop finds she must stand up to her seasoned partner, truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Based on the Academy® Award-winning animated feature film, this eye-popping spectacle has won the hearts of over 35 million people worldwide. Beauty and the Beast is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity

Death for Sydney Black
at The Thinking Cap Theatre Until Nov 27
Death for Sydney Black represents offoffBroadway-style theatre at its best!! Set at the fictitious Northeast Valley High during cheerleading tryouts and prom season, the play is a biting, quirky, and hilarious response to cult films such as Heathers, Mean Girls, and Bring It On.  Girls, guns, gore, and more! Don't miss this world premiere!

Guys and Dolls
at Broward Stage Door Theatre Until Dec 4
Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest permanent floating crap game, bets Sky Masterson that he can't make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. Featuring “Guys and Dolls”, “Luck Be a Lady Tonight”, and “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat”, this beloved musical is also a great American classic and multiple Tony-Award Winner!

RED by John Logan
at The Gable stage at the Biltmore Until Dec 4
It is 1958 and abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art; a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons Restaurant. Raw and provocative, this 2010 Tony Award-winning play is a searing portrait of the ambition, vulnerability and agony inherent in the art of making art.

at The Mosaic Theatre Until Dec 4
Don't miss this story of legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi and his wife Marie. The play takes place mostly in November of 1965, when a young journalist from New York City, Michael McCormick, comes to live with the Lombardi family in order to write a story.

The Mod Musical:  SHOUT!
at The Lake Worth Playhouse Until Dec 4
Shout! flips through the years like a musical magazine and takes you back to the music, the fashion and the freedom of the 60's!  This smashing revue tracks five groovy gals as they come of age during those liberating days that made England swing!  Shout! uses letters to an advice columnist, true confessions, quizzes and advertisements as a frame for terrific new arrangements of such chart-toppin hits as "To Sir With Love," "Downtown," "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," "Son of a Preacher Man," and "Goldfinger." 

This morality play about the cost of lying and the price of truth-telling examines a troubled family and a father who placed duty to his family above the lives of others, and now must face the consequences.
