Chorus Line-April 8-May 17-2015-0df2fe588c2f6b6d041ac4dab3a22afbA Chorus LineA timeless classic, and one of the longest running shows of all time.  The play evolved from several workshop sessions with Broadway dancers (known as ‘gypsies’) taped by choreographer Tony Stevens. The dancers’ frank discussions, admissions, and often painful revelations about their experiences, hopes, and dreams formed the basis of the play, which is set on a bare stage of an anonymous Broadway theatre during auditions for an upcoming musical. A Chorus Line provides a window to a backstage world most theatre patrons have no idea exists.

A Chorus Line was a critical and box office hit; it received twelve Tony Award nominations, and won nine. It also was awarded the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. And a number of composer Marvin Hamlisch’s songs, including ‘What I Did for Love’, and ‘One’, became ‘pop’ as well as Broadway standards. 

A Chorus Line will run until May 17 at Stage Door Theatre in Margate. The theatre is located at 8036 Sample Road, Margate 33065. Tickets are $38 – $42; $16 student tickets are also available. Tickets may be purchased at the Broward Stage Door Theatre box office at 954-344-7765 or on line at http://www.stagedoorfl.org.
For more information about A Chorus Line and/or Stage Door Theatre, please visit www.stagedoortheatre.com , or contact Derelle Bunn Executive Producer/Artistic Director, at DerelleBunn@yahoo.com / 954-344-7765 or Carol Kassie (ckassie@gmail.com / 561-445-9244).

Dames at Sea! Dazzling new musical at The Wick Theater in Boca-Dames at Sea has been described as a tap-happy, navy-crazy celebration of the golden era of movie musicals with a heart as big as the ocean. A long-running hit Off-Broadway that brought stardom to Bernadette Peters when it was launched in 1968, this spectacular song and dance show is based on the nostalgia of Hollywood musicals of the 1930’s. It’s big time New York, into which sweet little Ruby from Utah has come to try to make it big on Broadway. Not surprisingly and in true Broadway Dames at Sea-dames2fashion, Ruby begins the day as a chorus girl and ends it as a tap-dancing star on the deck of a battleship which just happens to be passing by. Full of fun music including  There’s Something About You, Choo, Choo Honeymoon, Raining in My Heart, It’s You and Star Tar and The Sailor of my Dreams, this gem of a musical was selected as “Best Musical of the Year” by Time and Newsweek. 

The Wick-logo-unnamed (1)If you love a good tap number, take a glorious nostalgic trip to the golden era of the Busby Berkeley style musical and see this razzle dazzle extravaganza!

Dames at Sea opens for previews at The Wick on May 7th with the Gala Grand Opening on May 9th. Performances are Wednesday through Sunday with matinees at 2:00 p.m. and evening performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. This production also marks the opening of The Wick Tavern for dinner; Dinner is now available to both theater patrons and to the general public. Reservations are strongly recommended.   Show tickets are $63-$80. For more details and tickets, contact the Wick Theatre at 561-995-2333 or on the web at www.thewick.org

Eat Scene-W Palm-Tony Solo-eatscene

Eat-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 www.eatscene.com

NEWS:  A UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFT: “ADOPT A WILD DOLPHIN”Dolphin+Girl-viewerCAUR9JN5

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:   harzen@taras.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
