"THE BOOK OF MORMON” BEST MUSICAL OF THE CENTURY RETURNS TO ADRIENNE ARSHT CENTER
The Book of Mormon is the winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score, in addition to a Grammy and has the highest-cast album on the Billboard charts in four decades and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical.
The musical, a religious satire, tells the story of two young Mormon Missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naive and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share one of the scriptures in the Book of Mormon, which only one knows very well. They have lots of trouble connecting with the natives who are more worried about the war.
In Utah, a devout handsome, missionary to be, leads his classmates in a door-to-door attempt to convert the people to Mormonism, believing if he prays enough, he will be sent to Orlando, Florida for his two year mission, but is shocked when he and his partner are sent to Uganda as a pair.
What happens in Uganda is hysterically funny. This blockbuster show features several big songs and dance numbers while poking fun at religion, sexuality, poverty and race.
Opening at the Arsht Center November 28 thru December 3, 2017. The Book of Mormon will conduct a pre-show lottery making a limited number of tickets available at $25 each. Entries will be accepted at the box office 2 ½ hours before the show of each performance.

PALM BEACH DRAMAWORKS CABARET SERIES PRESENTS A TRIBUTE TO PEGGY LEE
"If nominations for the first couple of Palm Beach County music were held, vocalist Jill Switzer and multi-instrumentalist Rich Switzer, the married co-hosts of The Morning Lounge Legends, would be near the top of the list as candidates,” according to a recent issue of Florida Weekly.
Fans of the deliciously delightful co-hosts on station 100.3 FM, now have a great opportunity to enjoy them live when they present Fever, A Tribute to Peggy Lee, now on stage thru November 18, 2017. “Peggy Lee was a trailblazer- a singer/song writer before the term existed,” and she collaborated with her husband, musician Dave Barbour.
Peggy Lee’s silky voice styling generated some amazing hits that have become enduring classics, such as “Mamma,” “ It’s A Good Day,” “He’s a Tramp,” “Is That All There Is?” and of course “Fever,” all of which will be included in their musical Tribute. Rich is a gifted pianist-composer for the past 32 years

THE DAZZLING FLORIDA GRAND OPERA
“LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR”
AT ZIFF OPERA HOUSE & BROWARD CENTER
Set in Scotland, the opera is the story of Lucia, a woman who murders her new husband after being coerced into marrying him by her brother, Enrico, who has taken over Ravenswood Castle, which had belonged to Edgardo, Enrico’s mortal enemy. Edgardo is also Lucia’s lover, and the two have been meeting in secret, in a remote part of the castle grounds.
As act one begins, Enrico’s men are busy combing the area for a reported intruder. There is speculation that Edgardo may have been hanging around. When Enrico hears rumors that Edgardo has been seen with his sister, he says he’d rather see Lucia struck by lightning than find her in the arms of his enemy.
Their family is in financial trouble and he hopes to solve the problem by marrying Lucia off to a wealthy nobleman named Arturo. Much commotion and confusion takes place throughout the next few scenes, ending in murder and death.
