Now until February 11-Garland in Word and Song-A journey back to Judy’s famous 1961 Carnegie Hall Performance-When Judy Garland stepped out onto the stage at Carnegie Hall on April 23, 1961, the raucous standing ovation that greeted her was just the start of what has been called “the greatest night in show business history.” Award-winning actress/singer Jody Briskey will channel Garland and recreate that night’s iconic performance in Garland in Word and Song at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park. Judy Garland was a mega-star before the term was coined. She made her first film appearance at age 7, and during her career earned three Oscar nominations, the first for what is listed by the American Film Institute as the 6th best film of all time – The Wizard of Oz. Over the years she progressed from movies to Vaudeville and concert appearances, but her difficulties with drug and alcohol abuse seriously impacted on her health and her career. However, in 1960–61, after a long recovery, she toured Europe and North America with a program labeled ‘Just Judy’, and the Carnegie Hall performance was the culmination of what had turned out to be a highly successful comeback. The recording of that concert was a huge success. It spent 73 weeks on the Billboards charts, including 13 weeks as number one. It also received four Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year in 1962. (Garland was the first woman to receive that award.) Held at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park. Showtimes: Thursday, Friday, & Saturday at 8:00 pm, Saturday & Sunday at 2:00 pmTickets are $35; group rates (6 or more tickets purchased in one transaction) are $30. Tickets can be purchased on line at www.willowtheatre.org or by phone at 561-347-3948.

This season, Singin’ in the Rain takes that honor! The iconic film which starred Gene Kelly, Donald O’Conner and Debbie Reynolds was released in 1952. The stage adaption made its Broadway debut in 1985.  “We are thrilled to honor the memory of the delightful Debbie Reynolds with this production,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer.  The 1952 classic film has often been cited as the “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time.” It has been faithfully adapted for the stage from the original award-winning screenplay. The plot offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to “talkies.” For tickets, call 561-995-2333.  The Wick Theatre is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, FL 33487; For more information, visit www.thewick.org

The show follows the progress of the town as hundreds of men come to dig for gold. But there’s a problem, the town has no women! That is soon remedied and the town competes for the affections of too few women. Filled with gorgeous standards such as “They Call the Wind Maria,” “I Talk to the Trees,” and “Wand’rin’ Star,” Paint Your Wagon is Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s sweepingly ambitious and surprisingly realistic take on freedom and family, in the Gold Rush-happy America of 1853.  At Lake Worth Playhouse-713 Lake Avenue-Lake Worth 33460  Show runs until February 4;

February 1 to March 25-My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy-Actor/Comedian Brad Zimmerman’s hilarious and inspiring story about the grit and passion required to ‘make it’ as an artist and the sweet rewards that come from never giving up on your dream. Brad Zimmerman brings his hit New York Comedy to Ft. Lauderdale this season in his highly praised autobiographical comedy of Zimmerman’s struggle to fulfill his dream and ‘make it’ as a comedic actor in New York. One-part standup, one-part theatrical, and all parts uproarious My Son the Waiter: A Jewish Tragedy has garnered rave reviews wherever it has played, including sold out runs Off Broadway in New York. Brad Zimmerman has paid his dues. He spent 29 years “temporarily” waiting tables in New York, all the while chasing a career in acting and comedy. He tells of his pursuit, along with stories about his childhood, family, and misbegotten love life with warmth, wit, self-deprecating humor, and wicked charm, and combines his years of training as an actor with his innate comedic talent. Zimmerman also examines the trials and tribulations of waiting on tables – particularly for someone not exactly invested in that career, and with little tolerance for persnickety diners. His perseverance and hard work eventually did pay off, and Zimmerman went on to act – he had a small part in “The Sopranos” playing Johnny Sack’s lawyer – and to become the opening act for a number of well-known entertainers, including George Carlin, Brad Garrett, Dennis Miller, Julio Iglesias, and Joan Rivers who said “I’ve had three great opening acts in my lifetime: Billy Crystal, Garry Shandling, and Brad Zimmerman.” Held at the Norma & William Horvitz Auditorium at the NSU Art Museum, Ft. Lauderdale. Tickets are available online at MySonTheWaiter.com or by phone at 1-855-448-7469. For group rates (12 +) call 1-888-264-1788. Tickets range from $45 – $65.
