COMEDIAN/SINGER SANDRA BERNHARD BRINGS HER
ONE WOMAN SHOW TO DANIA BEACH CASINO
Sandy is a very compelling performer who loves to engage her audience with personal and deeply emotional content. She began her career at L.A.’s famed Comedy Store in the 70s, and since then has written and starred in numerous one-woman shows, acted in movies and on television, recorded albums and authored books.
Her first woman show,”Without You I’m Nothing,” ran for 6 months off-Broadway in 1988 and served as an inspiration for the film and Grammy-Nominated album of the same name. The critically acclaimed “I’m Still Here... Dammit!” opened off- Broadway in 1997, moved to Broadway a year later, and was filmed for an HBO special.
The New York Times described Bernhard as a “living, breathing bonfire” and applauded the show, calling it “a driven, foul-mouthed, poison-laced joy ride that banks and careens frenetically through the worlds of fashion, celebrity, rock, and religion.” Her most recent show, ‘I Love Being Me, Don’t You?” played to sold-out crowds for an extended run last summer in Los Angeles. The album version of the show was released on Rooftop Records last fall, and she has been touring with it ever since with plenty of chutzpah to spare.
Sandra will be performing her new show at The Casino @ Dania Beach on March 11, 2017 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $25 with VIP tables for four at $500. For more details visit online at casinodaniabeach.com, or call 844-234-SHOW. *Must be 21 years of age.

ENCHANTING BALLET CHIPOLLINO
RETURNS TO THE BROWARD CENTER
One of the most delightful ballet characters returns to South Florida to entertain adults and children alike. Chipollino is a ballet consisting of two acts with choreography by Vladimir Issaev. It is inspired by the music of Russian composer Karen Khachaturian and is based in the children’s story of Italian writer Gianni Rodari. The ballet is about the adventures of live fruits and vegetables who live in the Kingdom of Limonia.
Chipollino is a mischievous little onion in a village where all dwellers are vegetables, suffering the despicable actions of the bitter King Lime. This ballet represents not only a children’s story, but also expresses a social protest and enhances the importance of friendship through difficult times. The beauty of this ballet is accentuated by the colorful costumes designed by Jorge Gallardo.
Chipollino, a ballet performed in 2 acts is great family entertainment. Tickets are $30 now available for the March 11 performance at 7 p.m. and 3 p.m. on March 12, 2017. For more information call the box office at 954-462-0222 or 877-311-7469 located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale.
HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA RESIDENT RAPHAELA NEILHAUSEN
NOMINATED FOR 2017 DOCUMENTARY OSCAR AWARD
To win, or be nominated for such a prestigious award is the biggest honor for an actor, director, producer or cinematographer, such as Raphaela, who this year produced the short documentary JOE’S VIOLIN, a story about a 91 year old Holocaust survivor, Joe Feingold, and a 12 year old Bronx school student Brianna Perez.
When a donation of a violin is received by Joe, it shows how the power of music can bring light into the darkest times and how such an act can have a great impact. When an elderly gentleman is given so much joy and excitement and a young girl from the Bronx experiences life that is so beautiful, in her young life, she can only become part of a world that many can only dream of.
Many audiences were moved to tears with this inspirational story of hope, generosity and kindness. This emotional twenty four minute documentary was created by Kahane Cooperman and Raphaela Neihausen as a true work of art that is timeless, universal and will make a lasting impression in the hearts of everyone lucky enough to see it.
To Raphaela, the daughter of Aelita and Jack Neihausen, also Hollywood, Florida residents, the theme of the movie is very close to her heart, as dozens of her family members perished in the Riga ghetto. For everyone to enjoy this documentary, Joe’s Violin, go to http://www. Joesviolin.com/watch-now.
