The winner of several Tony Awards, including Best Score and Best Book, “Into the Woods” is one of Stephen Sondheim's most popular and enduring musicals. This beautiful and entrancing tale of magic blends familiar fairy tales like "Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," and "Cinderella," following the story of a baker and his wife as they try to undo a witch’s curse that has left them childless. Musically sophisticated, “Into the Woods” offers audiences a lush and exciting celebration of life that reminds us that our actions have consequences, our lives are interdependent, and that our interdependence is our greatest strength. Winner of best revival awards in 2002 and 2011, “Into the Woods” at the FAU Department of Theatre is a sure fire crowd-pleaser!

Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre will cap off the 2016 – 2017 Mainstage Season with the World Premiere of Finding Mona Lisa, an intriguing new play written by South Florida’s prolific award-winning playwright Michael McKeever. In his latest work, McKeever explores the history of the world’s most famous painting, including Leonardo da Vinci’s meeting of Senora del Giocondo (Mona Lisa) and his masterful creation of her indelible countenance. This historical and funny new piece presents highlights throughout the painting’s infamous past, including her vandalism, her theft, her journey to America (at the request of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy) and the various places she spent her storied lifespan, including hanging in Napoleon’s bedroom, before her final resting place at the Louvre.

The Sagamore Hotel Miami Beach is debuting its latest seasonal curated exhibit entitled, Cuban Artists: The Prodigious Decade. This thoughtfully curated project showcases a significant selection of historic and recent artworks created by Cuban artists from the 80’s generation, some of the most important artists who pioneered contemporary art on the island. This exhibit brings together a selection of works by artists who were raised after the 1959 revolution, and who mostly attended the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) school in Havana. These artists pushed the limits of what was permitted and prohibited at that time and thus emerged in tension with what the Revolution’s authorities considered as their fundamental tenets, for the Revolution sought to forbid anything that might stand opposed to its core values.


north and south: bernice abbott's u.s. route 1 / MIAMI BEACH




The Wolfsonian–FIU and Instagram forum #JJ Community are bringing mid-century artist Berenice Abbott’s vision of daily life into the 21st century! Thousands of budding photojournalists on social media submitted entries, with fifteen winners selected for a Summer 2017 installation, The Long Road to Now: Digital Photos Inspired by Berenice Abbott’s Road Trip, to be showcased in the museum’s lobby June 9–October 8, 2017. This contemporary response to Abbott’s work will coincide with The Wolfsonian’s presentation of North and South: Berenice Abbott’s U.S. Route 1 (organized by the Syracuse University Art Collection), an exhibition of highlights from Abbott’s massive, 2,400-image photography series documenting her 1954 road trip up and down U.S. Route 1 on the American East Coast. Capturing scenes around the world, the winners—hailing from locations dotting the globe, including Paris, Milan, Sacramento, Chicago, Yekaterinburg and more—follow in Abbott’s footsteps by exploring three key themes: Signage, Classic, and Road Trip. Their images suggest new possibilities, an open road, and the nearly limitless creative license afforded by the sleek digital tools of today.

This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban Art. It presents a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the PAMM by Jorge M. Pérez, the majority from a recent gift of over 160 pieces, as well as works previously gifted to PAMM in 2012, and several recent acquisitions. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon, and these works serve to structure the conceptual framework of the exhibition. The diverse meanings placed on the horizon—which include it as a symbol of longing, containment or desire—radiate across the additional works on view. Produced in various media, such as, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, and installation, these contemplative artworks help generate a discussion regarding the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social, and political environment, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics.
