GABLESTAGE AT THE BILTMORE PRESENTS
A GRIPPING SHARP NEW PLAY “DRY POWDER”
Taking place in the present day in New York City, in the office of the private equity firm, KMM Capital Management. The versatile, spacious set includes a picturesque backdrop of the New York City skyline. It... plus, the intense, fast music in between scenes, reinforce the high-stakes of the play and rush to accomplish something quickly. The play’s intensity and power is enhanced within the intimacy of GableStage’s theatre.
An attempt is under way to save KMM from a publicity nightmare–or worse. During the same week KMM forces a huge amount of layoffs at a national grocery store chain, the firm’s founder and president, Rick, is exasperated, commanding and demanding, but at times loyal, treats himself and his fiancé to a lavish engagement party.
Co-managing director Seth might just have a plan to save Rick and the firm from humiliation If KMM can invest in an American-made luggage company. The firm might not only score a victory, but divert attention from Rick’s ill-timed celebration.
Then, negotiations and the resultant fireworks begin, and questions of loyalty arise. In one corner stands Jenny, an arrogant, cold, loud-spoken Katherine C. Mc Donald, a thoroughly unlikable, heartless financier who’s willing to shift the luggage company’s operations overseas, never mind how it might affect its American employees.
All in all, the play, a deliciously, funny new drama boils down to a conflict about saving jobs, the wheeling and dealing in the world of high finance and the price of success.
Now on stage through April 23, 2017 at the GableStage, located at 200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables, evenings at 8 p.m., matinees 2 p.m. For tickets and information call 305-445-1119.

THE LIFE STORY OF DANNY KAYE
NOW AT THE STAGE DOOR THEATRE
Based on the turbulent and triumphant life of Danny Kaye, this intimate musical portrayal chronicles Kaye’s career and relationships, on and off the stage, as we follow the rise of Danny Kaye, from an undisciplined improvisational comic to his success under the guidance of his wife, Sylvia Fine.
Danny Kaye was an American actor, singer, dancer, comedian, and musician. His performances featured comedy, pantomimes, and rapid-fire novelty songs. Joshua Kolb plays Danny Kaye and Kimberly Adams as Sylvia Fine.
Kaye teamed up with the popular Andrew Sisters Patty, Maxene, and La Verne in 1947; producing the number-three Billboard smash hit “Civilization Bongo, Bongo, Bongo.” The success of the pairing prompted both acts to record through 1950, producing several hits, including “The Woody Woodpecker Song.”
He starred in 17 movies notably “Wonder Man,” “The Kid From, Brooklyn,” “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty,” “The Inspector General,” “White Christmas,” and others. His favorite expression was “Life is a blank canvas and you need to throw all the paint on it you can."
