Love Letters starring Ryan O’Neill and Ali McGraw–Back together again onstage at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts- They were on-screen lovers 45 years ago in a tearjerker film that became a classic. Now Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal, stars of the movie Love Story, the 1970 blockbuster movie, are together again. They’ll be onstage in Fort Lauderdale this summer in a live performance of A.R. Gurney’s enduring romance Love Letters. (Love Story was considered by the American Film Institute as one of the most romantic, and highest-grossing, movies of its time.) Love Letters is a very different romance, telling a story of first loves, lost opportunities and second chances. Although they marry other people, they cannot seem to let go of each other, and they maintain a 50-year friendship through a series of letters.“It felt like I was back in Love Story and hadn’t aged a day,” said O’Neal, 74. “It was magic.” MacGraw said. “The message of Love Letters is much different than Love Story. This is a grownup take on love. The characters we play had lives, marriages and children. The underlying message is: If only they had said what they were really feeling.” Tickets to Love Letters are available online at www.BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com. Watch this video for a look at them today: CLICK HERE For more about the play: www.lovelettersontour.com

New Cinema Brings Luxury to Coconut Creek: Silverspot- To keep the audience focused on the movie, food will not be served inside the auditorium; However, guests can take in selections from the snack counter, which includes pizza, chicken fingers and the now-ubiquitous sliders. There will be no intrusions from the outside world, and even the packaging of the products, the interior design of each auditorium and the seats themselves are colored entirely black, wrapping up attendees in a comfy cinematic cocoon. Located in the Promenade, the burgeoning outdoor shopping, dining and banking center of Coconut Creek, the 11-screen Silverspot advertises itself as a boutique theater, but it does match the upscale standards of iPic in other ways. There is no box office, so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online or at five electronic kiosks near the entrance, where they’ll buy assigned seats. The interior design of the lobby is minimalist-chic. A bar dispensing bottled beer, wines and cocktails greets you upon entry, and, as Emerman points out, “your wine bottle will fit in the cupholders” of the seats. And speaking of those seats: These lumbar-supported, hand-stitched pockets of leather heaven are justifiably one of Silverspot’s proudest calling cards. Every seat is like a first-class plane-Silverspot will screen independent and art-house fare in addition to top-grossing Hollywood titles. Concerts, ballets and operas will be simulcast, and owners are looking into streaming sporting events as well. Tickets will cost $14.50 for adults and $9.75 for children, with discounts for seniors and matinees, and with small additional fees for 3D movies. The theater will open to the public today at 4443 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek. For information and show times, visit silverspot.net.

Eat-Scene and Wine Scene in West Palm Beach
Eat-Scene is a combination gourmet market / restaurant area at the corner of Quadrille Boulevard and Fern Street.

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story. Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet to be adopted.) All this for only $30 + $5 for shipping in the U.S. ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 + $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show- CLICK HERE Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.
