Dramaworks’ “Lady Day” Is A Tour De Force Play With Music

By Bill Hirschman,, Special to, May 22, 2015 – Veil after veil are slowly stripped away from the elegant sophisticated stage persona that is “Billie Holiday” until standing exposed is a blunted devastated victim of racism, sexism and abuse – some imposed and some self-inflicted — in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ incisive Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill. Although the play occurs during a single club date, actress Tracey Conyer Lee and director J. Barry Lewis successfully chart Holiday’s […]

Spoof Of ’30s Musicals, Dames At Sea, Lands At The Wick

By Bill Hirschman,, Special to, May 12, 2015 – We were tough last week on the national tour of Anything Goes. If those folks want to know what we were hoping to see, they should take the day off and drop in on what The Wick Theatre is doing with Dames At Sea with a fifth of the resources. Both musicals – and the On the 20th Century revival we just saw in New York — gently poke fun […]

Backroads & scenic drives in Florida: More than views of beaches

By Bonnie Gross,, Special to, May 5, 2015 – We don’t have mountains and most of our roads have no excuse to curve, but Florida still has scenery that is worthy of viewing through your windshield. The trick to finding scenic drives in Florida is to find the undeveloped backroads and to appreciate scenery that is often subtle rather than dramatic. Some of these scenic backroads can be used as alternatives to interstate highways. Others are good for folks […]

Peanut Island: Snorkeling, historic Kennedy Bunker, even camping

By Bonnie Gross,, Special to, April 30, 2015 – There are three good and distinctly different reasons to visit Peanut Island: It has terrific snorkeling. It offers a fascinating historic site — the bomb shelter used by President John F. Kennedy. It has 20 campsites for tents. As a bonus, if you’re a kayaker, it makes a fun destination while you avoid the expense of the water taxi. Peanut Island is a man-made island in the middle of the Port […]

By Bonnie Gross,, Special to, April 23, 2015 – The island of Palm Beach is the exclusive winter home of billionaires and their poorer colleagues, the multi-millionaires.

Evening Star’s The Addams Family Gamely Delivers The Goofy Giggles In A Flawed Script

By Bill Hirschman,, Special to, April 20, 2015 – The difficulty sorting out the virtues and flaws in Evening Star Productions’ The Addams Family is separating the admirable, ambitious and unflagging efforts of this fledgling troupe and what can be laid off on a congenitally flawed piece of material. There’s enough giggles and grins delivered by these game, committed thespians to keep this production mildly diverting, but they still are finding their artistic chops and they still are chained […]
