<a href=The Gipsy Kings 25th Anniversary Tour in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> THE GIPSY KINGS 25TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
Florida Theatre
The Gipsy Kings, France's most successful group of all time, known for bringing their progressive and virtuosic flamenco pop to the mainstream, will perform at the Florida Theatre on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 8pm following the release of Savor Flamenco, their ninth studio album. Savor Flamenco is the group's first new recording in seven years and marks twenty-five years since the group first captured the world's imagination with their self-titled debut album, featuring worldwide hit "Bamboleo." The band's vigorous guitar work and passionate vocals are the trademark of an indigenous musical tradition known as Rumba Gitano. The Rumba - which originated in Africa - traveled from Zaire via the slave trade to Cuba and the New World, then back to Barcelona, where it was adopted by the Gypsies. There are no other examples of a non-English speaking band (the group's language is the Gypsy dialect of gitane) with such a consistent winning streak in the US, where the group is the biggest-selling French act ever. The platinum compilation The Best of the Gipsy Kings charted for more than a year and their music has been used in numerous motion pictures, including Peter Weir's "Fearless" and Joel and Ethan Coen's "The Big Lebowski".

The Fox on the Fairway in Broadway THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY
Players by the Sea
The latest farce from the popular author of Moon Over Buffalo and Lend Me a Tenor has them rolling in the aisles all over the country. There are 26 amateur and professional productions scheduled this year from Massachusetts to California. Let's hear it from the critics: "Three words best describe Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway …Hilarious, hilarious, and hilarious. The audience from the beginning to the brilliant ending was howling with joy."* If beleaguered club manager Henry Bingham doesn't beat arch-rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club in the traditional inter-club tournament, he'll lose his job and his wife. When his champion player jumps to the competition, things look hopeless, but then his eager young assistant Justin turns out to be an ace golfer. Except when he's stressed - and romantic ups and downs with his adorable fiancee Louise are making him really tense! In this light-hearted romp, there are machinations, plot twists and romantic complications galore, with lots of over-the-top laughs.

The Lyons in Broadway THE LYONS
Players by the Sea
Waiting at her husband's bedside, Rita Lyons flips through glossy magazines, planning to redecorate as soon as he's dead. Ben Lyons is not going quietly. "I'm dying, Rita," he rages. "I know, dear," she replies, "Try to look on the positive side." Their grown children visit the hospital and are stunned to discover that their father on his deathbed; their parents have neglected to mention that little detail. ("Why burden you? You have your own problems.") Lisa, a recovering alcoholic, is driven from the room within minutes by her mother's relentless belittling, in search of the comfort of a drink. Curtis seems better-balanced, until we discover that the long-term boyfriend that he's chatting to on the phone is entirely fictitious. Yes, there's no lonelier place than the bosom of your own family, even - or especially - in times of crisis. A savagely funny exploration of the ways we find to torment and distance those we're supposed to love.

Free to Be... You and Me in Broadway FREE TO BE... YOU AND ME
Players by the Sea
Marlo Thomas conceived a children's book that, instead of telling boys and girls who they should be, would open them to the possibilities of who they could be. She gathered many of her supremely talented friends from various worlds of the arts and the remarkable result is highly regarded as a modern classic of children's literature. Life-enhancing themes are imaginatively blended with music and humor to expand children's personal horizons, enabling them to invent their own futures without limitation, while dispelling some old constraints and worn-out conventions in the process. Parents, teachers and other grown-up friends will delight in sharing this extraordinary and memorable experience with the children in their lives.From the Book ; Conceived By Marlo Thomas & and Friends; Contributions by Judy Blume & Dan Greenberg & Carol Hall & Sheldon Harnick & Bruce Hart & Edward Kleban & Elain Laron & Stephen Lawrence & Betty Miles & Shelley Miller & Carl Reiner & Mary Rodgers & Shel Silverstein & Peter Stone & Charlotte Zolotow; Adaptation Written for the Stage by Douglas Love and Regina Safran
