There’s only one opening this weekend: Rising Action Theatre begins its new season in a new venue Friday with Nicky Silver’s dark comedy Fit to be Tied at Sunshine Cathedral, 1480 SW 9th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. The plot follows a wealthy gay man who fears he may have contracted AIDS just as he discovers the love of his life ‘ and kidnaps him. It is a typical Silver play in which bizarre circumstances become increasingly more bizarre with unexpected developments. risingactiontheatre.com; 954-561-2225
