Current Productions for the week of June 25, 2012

The Edge of our Bodies by Adam Rapp
At Mosaic Theatre Until July 1
The Edge of Our Bodies was a tremendous hit at this year's Humana Festival and features Bernadette, sixteen, on the train from her New England private school to New York City to give her boyfriend some big news. Achingly articulate about all she can't know or control, this play captures a young woman at the threshold of vulnerability and experience.

DeathTrap by Ira Levin
Miami Beach Stage Door Theatre Until July 1
The trap is set… for a wickedly funny who’ll-do-it. Broadway’s longest-running mystery is a classic pulse-pounding thriller with devilishly wicked characters and multiple twists. The plot thickens as a once famed playwright, now living on his laurels, is sent a more-than-promising manuscript from an aspiring playwright. His dilemma: Can he get the young author to collaborate with him?  If not – is murder an option?  Of course it is.

Love Scenes by David Pumo
At Emire stage Until July 1
Six, individual scenes.  Each with it's own flavor and perspective.  Each depicting a different type of relationship in gay america.  Each unique chacrter as different as six random people you would meet on the street.  All played by one actor.
Warning: Nudity and adult themes.

Xanadu by Douglas Carter Beane, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar
At Slow Burn Theatre Co. Until July 1
XANADU follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO This tale of endless fun will keep you in stitches, while the legendary chart-topping tunes will lift you out of your seat. You’ll want to keep the music in your head, and XANADU in your heart, forever.

Cabaret Verboten
At The Arts Garage Until July 29

In the face of the Nazi machine’s insidious advance, Germany’s Weimar era art-scene was a hotbed of music, theatre, and art that used satire and irony to expose the affected bourgeois morality of the time. While “decadent” and “degenerate” were terms Hitler used to describe whatever he found objectionable, the cabaret of the day reflected the social degeneracy, dripping in decadence and menace, as a response to what their world had become.
