dial m for murder-unnamedDial M for Murder-   “…original and remarkably good theatre—quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath.” —NY Times. Frederick Knott’s Dial M for Murder is a psychological thriller – a character driven, carefully plotted, ‘cat-and mouse’ piece of theatre that is as contemporary now as it was when it first premiered on BBC television in 1952. Best known as a classic Alfred Hitchcock film, this ‘noir’ thriller was performed in London’s West End and on Broadway several years before Hitchcock adapted it for the screen. The play centers around former tennis star Tony Wendice and his scheme to have his wealthy wife murdered, after learning she has designated him her heir. Although Wendice’s plans are evident almost from the outset, Knott’s clever plotting and characterizations will keep audiences on the edge of their seats throughout the play. At the Stage Door Theatre located at 8036 Sample Road, Margate, 33065. Tickets for Dial M for Murder are $38 – $42; $16 student tickets are also available. For more information and tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at Group and Subscriber Discounts are available for all Stage Door productions or contact Derelle Bunn Executive Producer/Artistic Director, at or Carol Kassie ( / 561-445-9244). Photographs and graphics available on request.

I Hate Hamlet-November 20 to December 6-2015-unnamed (1)“I Hate Hamlet” by: Paul Rudnick- At the Lake Worth Playhouse

The Story: A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

Eat Scene-W Palm-Tony Solo-eatscene

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. The brainchild of long-time Florida resident, Tony Solo, Eat-Scene is described as being loosely based on such similar venues as New York’s Eataly and Seattle’s Pike’s Market. There will be 20 or so different independently owned businesses under the Eat-Scene roof, from purveyors of produce, meat and seafood to gourmet spices, chocolates and baked good, along with four different “micro eateries,” a deli and an outdoor beer garden.The idea, according to Eat-Scene’s website, is to create a “market culture for wine and food enthusiasts” and a “social venue that appeals to all your senses.” Located at: 501 Fern St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401-Info; 561-275-1550 or

Burt Rapoport-plans to open Rappy’s Deli at Park Place in Boca Raton, a new retail development slated to be built soon on Military Trail, between Yamato Road and Clint Moore Road-expected to open in late 2016-Rapoport says Rappy’s Deli will be a modern spin on the classic Jewish style deli, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails. It also will offer take out and catering, he said. (Restaurants in the Rapoport Group include: Bogart’s Bar & Grille in Boca Raton , Henry’s on Jog Road in Delray Beach, Deck 84 on the Intracoastal in Delray Beach, and Burt & Max’s and Apeiro, both in the Delray Marketplace .)

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. IMG_0004(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: 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.
