"SEE YOU AT THE THEATRE" ™
THE BEST MUSICAL OF THE YEAR “FINDING NEVERLAND” COMING TO BROWARD CENTER
Broadway’s newest hit is the winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Musical. This breathtaking production captures the kid-at-heart and is a must see for everyone, and will be remembered for years to come. Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters, Peter Pan, or “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up,” and one of the most loveable stories of all time.
Playwright J. M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration to write a new play until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes the monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.
The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. Finding Neverland is “far and away the best musical of the year.”
Tickets for this musical, opening June 13 thru 25, 2017 are available at the Broward Center’s box office located at 201 S. W. 5th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale starting at $ 40.25. Call 954-462-0222 or visit online at www.browardcenter.org.
THE ADRIENNE ARSHT CENTER PRESENTS
GRAMMY AWARD WINNERS “THE GIPSY KINGS”
The Gipsy Kings are a group of flamenco, salsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier, France, who perform in the Spanish language with an Andalusian accent.
Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly Gitanos. They are known for bringing Catalonia rumba, a pop-oriented music derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences.
The group originally called itself Los Reyes. Their music has a particular rumba flamenco style, with pop influences. Many of the Gipsy King’s songs are great for social dances, such as salsa and rumba.
Their music has been described as a place where “Spanish flamenco and gypsy rhapsody meet salsa funk. It was famous singer Reyes who was mostly responsible for the new surge when he started his own band made up of his own sons, later replaced with his brothers Nicholas, André, and Patchai, in addition to Diego and Paco Baliardo.
Tickets for Gipsy Kings, opening in the Ziff Ballet Opera House June 14, 2017 at 8 p.m., are available at the Arsht Center’s box office located at 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. For information call 305-949-6722, 877-949-6722 or visit online at www.arshtcenter.org.
