Looking for something fun to do in South Florida?
Thursday, 1/12 - Theater
The Maltz Jupiter Theater has an impeccable track record with big Broadway musicals. This weekend, they bring Mel Brooks’ record Tony Award-winning musical comedy, “The Producers,” to the stage in north Palm Beach County. A down-on-his-luck producer schemes with his accountant to produce a Broadway flop, until their foolproof plan backfires. It’s worth the drive. Tickets at JupiterTheatre.org.
Friday, 1/13 - Dance
Miami City Ballet debuts Program II: “Calcium Light Night” tonight at the Arsht Center. The dancers will tackle Peter Martins’ witty 1978 ballet, along with dances set to music by minimalist composer Philip Glass and Broadway legend Richard Rodgers. The program will also be repeated in Fort Lauderdale at the Broward Center and West Palm Beach at the Arsht Center. Tickets at MiamiCityBallet.org.
Saturday, 1/14 - Art
If you liked Art Week in Miami, then you’ll love Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair, Jan. 12 – 15 in downtown West Palm Beach. Produced by the same team that organizes many of the most popular fairs in Miami, this show offers investment quality works in a much more intimate setting. While there, check out the exhibits at the historic Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, 2051 S. Flagler Drive. More info at ANSG.org.
Sunday, 1/15 - Festival
Last year, more than 17,000 people attended Gay8, the annual LGBT art, music and food street festival in Miami’s historic Little Havana. Head down to Calle Ocho between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. and enjoy performances by Locos for Juana, Lucy Grau, Sonlokos, Electric Piquette, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida and more. The main stage will be at 17th Ave. For more information, go to Gay8Festival.com.
Monday, 1/16 - Television
Netflix rolls out another original series to binge on, “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” The adaptation of Daniel Handler’s “Lemony Snicket” books stars Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, malevolent guardian of the Baudelaire children. We have a feeling this is going to quickly become a campy classic thanks to the crazy prosthetics and over-the-top performances by the former “Doogie Howser, M.D.” Streaming on Netflix.com.
Tuesday, 1/17 - Television and Film
Like any good, card-carrying homosexual, you were glued to the television last Sunday night for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes Awards. Tonight, catch up on the big winners: The glitzy musical “La-La-Land;” “Moonlight,” written by Liberty City’s Tarell Alvin McCraney; Netflix’s “The Crown;” and AMC’s thriller, “The Night Manager.” Check local listings for show times, theaters and stations.
