Curtains: A Great Big New Musical Comedy-The Award-Winning Whodunit Features a “Show within a Show”- At the Wick Theater in Boca- The show is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots and features music and lyrics by the legendary Kander and Ebb. “This show has everything—murder, mayhem and a western-themed musical called Robbin’ Hood!” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer. “The humorous premise of a police detective moonlighting as a musical theatre fan to solve the murder of the star on opening night will have audiences laughing with delight.”
The show stars Tony Edgerton as the sleuthing Lt. Frank Cioffi. Making his Wick debut, Edgerton, based in New York City, has been seen in many national tours, Off-Broadway Shows and regional productions. The Wick is thrilled to welcome back Carbonell winner Julie Kleiner who dazzled in The Wick’s production of 42nd Street. In Curtains, Kleiner plays Georgia Hendricks the songwriter who ends up with the lead role in the “show within the show.” And The Wick also welcomes back Angie Radosh, who last appeared as Mdm. Dindon in La Cage Aux Folles. The multi-Carbonell winner plays Carmen Bernstein, the show’s brassy producer. Curtains will be directed by Clayton Phillips.
The production runs from February 25th through March 27th, with 2pm matinees on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and 7:30pm performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets from $70-80. For more information www.thewick.org or call 561-995-2333

Benise in Concert-– 7:30pm-“Strings of Passion”; World Music and Dance Spectacular! “The Prince of Spanish Guitar” Brings “The Latin Riverdance” to South Florida-Fresh off his blockbuster 34-city tour through China and over 100 performances in 2015, Benise (pronounced Buh-nes-say) will bring his brand new electrifying multi-cultural stage show, “Strings of Passion” to the Mizner Park Amphitheater (590 Plaza Real) in Boca Raton -Benise is known worldwide for classic rock anthems, brilliantly fused with fiery Spanish guitar and dance. Backed with a stage of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, “Strings of Passion” is a show that appeals to people of all ages, cultures and musical backgrounds. “Strings of Passion” is an unprecedented and spectacular adventure through Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, and Brazilian Samba in a live performance with dancing that is equally mysterious, sensual and festive. As composer, guitarist and creative force behind the event, Benise says the show’s ambition is “pushing the boundaries of traditional Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of culture–the culmination of all the shows we’ve done over the last 10 years.” The dancers, The Gitanas, were carefully handpicked from a global pool of brilliantly diverse talent. Breathtaking couture fashion and innovative staging and choreography give Spanish dance a fresh and luminous makeover. Benise has been heralded as “The Prince of Spanish Guitar” and his show has been called “The Latin Riverdance.” Tickets range from $25 to $95 per person – A special VIP Experience package is offered at $95 per person to include premiere seating in the first three rows; a private sound check experience; meet and greet with Benise; photo opportunities with Benise; and personally autographed “Strings of Passion” CD set.

NEWS: Tri-County Animal Rescue is in great need of DOG WALKERS! We have several hundred dogs in our shelter, and they all need to be walked. PLEASE come in- Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun-10:30am to 4pm—come and help.
Tri County Animal Rescue- 21287 Boca Rio R0ad-Boca Raton 33433-Phone: 561-482-8110 – www.TriCountyAnimalRescue.com
Personal Note: I just took the one Sunday “class” to learn their procedures. Sign up! It’s available at 8:45am every Sunday- It helped! I walked a couple of adorable, loving dogs today–it feels so rewarding to volunteer!
P.S. The dogs at Tri-County are dangerously low on canned dog food. Pedigree Chunky Chicken Canned Dog Food- Please help us by bringing in canned dog food to the shelter, as soon as possible.
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.
Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen @Taras.org or 561-762-6473
