March 20 to 24-My One And Only, The Gershwin Musical-OPENING NIGHT Tonight, March 8 at 8pm! “My One and Only is a Crazy Big, Tap-Happy Musical…”  The timeless music of George and Ira Gershwin features an aviator, a Channel swimmer, exuberant dance numbers, sparkling costumes, romance, comedy, and America in 1927.  Created to showcase the Gershwins’ marvelous music, the show ran for two years on Broadway and won 6 Tony Awards and 3 Drama Desk Awards. The plot is classic musical comedy: Captain Billy Buck Chandler, a barnstorming aviator, falls for Edythe Herbert, a former English Channel swimmer and the star of an International Aquacade. Billy, who plans to be the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, hopes to win Edythe’s hand by taking a crash course in sophistication. Billy’s wisecracking female mechanic, Mickey, adds a bit of sass as a series of escapades and misadventures keep the potential lovers from finding happiness. Director Jonathan Van Dyke said, “My One and Only is the all singing, all dancing, all hilarity Gershwin musical comedy.” It was a giant hit in the early 1980’s with Tommy Tune and Twiggy with songs such as “Kicking the Clouds Away”, “I Can’t Be Bothered Now”, “’S’ Wonderful”, “Strike Up the Band”, “Funny Face”, “Nice Work If You Can Get It”, and of course, “My One and Only”. The show will run until March 24 at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC)  with Showtimes: Wednesday, Saturday, & Sunday at 2 pm, Friday & Saturday at 8 pm; The theatre is located at 3800 NW 11th Place, Lauderhill, FL 33311, in the Central Broward Regional Park on the North East corner of Sunrise Boulevard and 441 (State Road 7). Tickets are $48 to $58. (LPAC charges a $5 service fee per ticket, however if a package of four Stage Door shows is purchased the service fees will be waived.) Group rates are available, as are student prices (with valid ID).  For more information and to purchase tickets, call the box office at 954-344-7765 or 954-777-2055 (LPAC) or visit  www.stagedoorfl.org or on the LPAC website at https://lpacfl.com.

March 20 to April 14-Crazy for You, A Romantic Gershwin Musical Comedy-Won the 1992 Tony for Best Musical and it is one of the most entertaining shows of all time; The play is a musical feast that showcases more than 20 Gershwin songs and recreates the golden era of the 1930’s follies-style lavish production numbers. This fast-paced, energetic extravaganza features lyrics by Ira Gershwin, music by George Gershwin, and book by Ken Ludwig. Billed as “The New Gershwin Musical Comedy,” it is largely based on the songwriting team’s 1930 musical, Girl Crazy, but incorporates songs from several other productions as well. Crazy for You won the 1992 Tony for Best Musical, the 1993 Olivier Award (London) and 1994 Dora Award (Toronto) for Best Musical. The plot revolves around a well-to-do young New Yorker, Bobby Child, who is sent to Nevada to foreclose on a theatre owned by the family business. Falling in love with the local postmistress, Bobby decides to produce a show to save the theatre. Showgirls and cowboys deliver beloved classic songs including “Embraceable You,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and the heartbreaking ballad “But Not For Me. ”Wed, Thurs, Sat, Sun Matinees at 2pm;  Wed., Thurs, Fri, Sat Evenings at 7:30pm-The theater is located at 7901 North Federal Hwy., Boca Raton-Tickets: $75-$85, www.thewick.org or call 561-995-2333

March 21 to 24- The Play “2 Across”-is called “A Comedy of Crosswords and Romance”-2 Across finds two strangers, a man and a woman, on board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. Alone in the car, the only thing they have in common is that they are both doing the New York Times crossword puzzle. Soon the puzzles they unravel are more intriguing than any crossword puzzle could ever be. Executive Producer Ellen Wacher  said, “It also totally meets with our company’s mission – to show people over the age of 50 living interesting and active and real lives. I was captivated by these characters’ development, and I believe our audience will be too.” Director Deborah Kondelik said, “One thing that is guaranteed though, is a delightful very early morning romp by two strangers on San Francisco’s BART train. The tie that binds is that both of them are hard at work on the Saturday New York Times crossword puzzle. Although they tackle the puzzle with very different approaches, they soon discover commonalities that cannot be ignored. The stumbling block is that both are married . . . to someone else.” For more information or tickets ($39) visit www.pigsdoflyproductions.com or by call 866-811-4111. Performances are on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 pm, and on Sunday at 5 pm. All performances will take place at Empire Stage, 1140 N.

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: harzen@nulltaras.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.
