We all know the Rabbi – his public appearance, his sermons, his prayers – but what about his partner?

What passions drive this fierce and feminine force to devote her years to a life of service?

What narrative is behind all the wonderwoman-like work that is invested in building and cultivating community?

Tonight, we get to glimpse behind the scenes. Tonight, we get to hear her story.

Hi, my name is Matt Pack,

I’m the creator of the “Fast Pack Summer Slim Down Challenge” and I have something special to share with you.

If you are struggling with your weight, then this is for you!

You’re invited to a FREE nutrition seminar at the Primal Fit 360 studio.

During this 1 hour seminar, you will learn exactly what I did to help a small group of Primal Fit members lose over 100 pounds combined within 30 days doing simple exercises and focusing on diet.

The information I want to share with you is so powerful yet simple, I can’t wait to meet you in person and show you how to utilize this technique to achieve your personal fitness goal.

Our program sheds light on toxic food relationships and empowers people to take full control of those negative eating behaviors that are interrupting their well-being.

Traditional diet programs have failed individuals over and over again promising things they couldn’t provide. Especially for the person participating in the program, it can be extremely de-motivating when there is a significant amount of weight to lose with little to no progress.

Enough is enough and I chose to put all my energy into helping you and others who share this struggle.

My personal goal now is to take as much weight off of you as quickly as possible,
while empowering you to take massive action towards a healthier lifestyle.

The first step is education, that’s why I’m hosting this seminar for FREE and that’s why you should join me.

The second step is to take MASSIVE ACTION with the right people and support.

As I introduce you to a simple yet healthy technique to battle your weight, I will challenge you to implement what you learn during the 30 days “Fast Pack Summer Slim Down Challenge”.

Are you ready to learn how to improve your health?

Are you ready to take massive action and accomplish having the body you always wanted?

Are you ready to look in the mirror again and just be happy, less concerned and more proud of your body?

In their fourth season, MMF will present a series of Operas as part of the MMF’s Opera Institute.

In this South Florida premiere based on the impactful book and film of the same name, acclaimed composer Jake Heggie takes on a true story that helped frame the modern debate on the death penalty in America. When a Catholic nun in New Orleans agrees to become penpals with a death-row inmate convicted of murder, her perspectives on life, death, forgiveness, and capital punishment are forever altered. With a libretto by the Tony Award-winning playwright Terrance McNally (Masterclass, Ragtime), Dead Man Walking brings one of the most powerful contemporary American operas—and one of opera’s most important contemporary composers—to South Florida.

In their fourth season, MMF will also present a series of Faculty Recitals as part of the MMF Piano Institute.

The Dallas Morning News calls his playing “an out-of-body experience.” Italian pianist Alessio Bax joins the MMF Piano Institute as a visiting artist for the first time, bringing a program spanning the classical era to the 20th century. Mozart borrows a tune from his own Clarinet Quintet to build a set of Six Variations, which join Alexander Scriabin’s Sonata No. 3 and Ravel’s La Valse, a ground-breaking reflection on the classical waltz. Hailed as “one of the most remarkable young pianists before the public,” Bax maintains a busy performance schedule while also serving—along with his wife, the pianist Lucille Chung—as the Johnson-Prothro Artists-in-Residence at Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts.

Firemen Are Rarely Necessary by Theo Reyna

A dark comedy about some light censorship.

In 2011, Florida’s Governor banned the use of the phrases “climate change” and “global warming” by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. By 2015 he had the ban extended to most other state agencies. “Fireman are Rarely Necessary” is set in a not so distant Florida future where it has become increasingly difficult to find the right words to describe a place where things have gone very wrong.

Mad Cat Theatre Company continues its 17th season with a production of two of Vaclav Havel’s sharp political dramas AUDIENCE and PROTEST.

The subversive Czechoslovakian playwright, Prime Minister & President, Vaclav Havel was in danger of being declared a “social parasite” by the neo-Stalinist regime of Gustav Husák when he wrote AUDIENCE & PROTEST back in 1975 & 1978.

AUDIENCE deals with the travails of Havel’s alter-ego Ferdinand Vanek – recently released from jail for anti-government activities. Valek is stuck in the bleak office of the foreman of the brewery where he has been forced into menial labour. The tedious bureaucracy and constant paranoia of life under the Communists have driven the foreman to alcoholism and to the brink of insanity – he is prone to bouts of rage and despair.

In PROTEST, Havel’s alter ego Ferdinand Valek has escaped his hellish office to visit the middle-class home of one of his friends. He is hoping to convince his old friend Stanek to sign a petition renouncing the regime.

Both plays seek to shine a light on the darkness of censorship and tyrannical rule. Don’t miss the show that critics and audiences are raving over!

Directed by Paul Tei and Theo Reyna
Featuring Erik Fabregat, Michael Gioia, Noah Levine, and Pete Smith Rogan

Vaclav Havel’s AUDIENCE and PROTEST is running now through March 12, 2017, with performances Thursday – Sunday 8 p.m. in MTC’s Sand Box located at 9816 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami Shores FL 33138.

Video & live performance
Created by Natalia Lassalle

A powerful exploration of what it means to be a woman. To grow old, and to remember. This piece, which is part documentary video and part live performance, is a journey into the lives of women over 65 years of age across Miami, Puerto Rico and Quebec. Retiro melds the autobiographical with the surreal to illustrate the volatility of time, the reconstruction of memories, and the process of aging in women.

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

Photographs of Cordoba Medieval Street Fair on 5/4/14

Cordoba Medieval Street Fair in Miami Shores on Sunday, May 4, 2014.  As part of the Opening Weekend festivities of Everybody Drinks the Same Water, Miami Theater Center hosted a family-friendly, four-block-long street fair in Miami Shores. Inspired by medieval Córdoba, the street fair will feature jugglers, flamenco and belly dancers, stilt performers, a contortionist, artists, live drummers and musicians, craftspeople, food trucks, face painting, and a parade that will showcase the cast of Everybody Drinks the Same Water

“EVERYBODY DRINKS THE SAME WATER begins as a Christian King has just taken control of the city of Cordoba, Spain, ending more than 500 years of Islamic rule. Moments after entering the castle, the new ruler drinks a glass of water and becomes violently ill. His family accuses the Muslim community of attempting to assassinate him, but the picture gets murkier with reports of Jews, Muslims, and other Christians getting sick. Evidently, the entire public water supply has been poisoned. Fear, anger, and suspicion infect the town. Frustrated by their elders’ inability to see beyond the finger pointing, three teenagers of different faiths decide to work together to unravel the mystery. Add to the mix inter-religious flirtations with potentially fatal consequences, and you get an engaging look at the past that teaches powerful lessons about the present.”

Produced by Barry University’s Department of Fine Arts, this modern adaptation casts Tartuffe as a deposed televangelist who rooks Orgon and his family of their money and property and nearly compromises Orgon’s wife. The action takes place in a religious television studio in Baton Rouge where the characters cavort to either prevent or aid Tartuffe in his machinations. Written in modern verse, Tartuffe: Born Again adheres closely to the structure and form of the original. Moliere’s legendary comedic characters are delightfully at home in this modern day version that played at New York’s Circle in the Square.

MIAMI SHORES, February 18, 2013 — Miami Theater Center is delighted to announce the upcoming performances of Miami native Pioneer Winter’s world-premiere reinterpretation of the “one-man show,” Pie Solo. Performances, which are part of Miami Theater Center’s SandBox Series, take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, March 15 through March 30 at MTC’s SandBox space, located at 9816 NE 2nd Avenue. Tickets are $20 and group rates are available. To purchase, call 305-751-9550 or visit www.mtcmiami.org.

Pioneer Winter calls his multimedia work Pie Solo a “quarter-life” interpretation of the classic one-man show, to which he added an updated, personal touch to engage a contemporary mature audience. “While in traditional one-man shows, the performer regales the audience with humorous anecdotes, snappy dance routines, and music, my take is slightly darker and sexual, although there are funny moments,” said Winter. “In Pie Solo, I combine anecdotes, tap and contemporary dance, and music to illustrate the story of a young performer who straddles the line between exhaustion and exhilaration.”

The work stretches definitions and perceptions, reexamining faith in religion and culture from the vantage points of sexuality, age and queerness. It draws the audience into an intimate and interactive dialogue blending humor, isolation and anecdote. A fantasy-like film sequence anchors the work, allowing Winter to explore the interplay of reality and fantasy through simultaneous projected media and live performance. “The way I use projections in the work allows me to play with the sense of reality and fantasy, that idea of multiplicity,” said Winter. Other elements of the performance include tap dancing and stripping. The performance contains adult language and nudity.

# # #

Pie Solo runs March 15, 2013 through March 30, 2013 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm. All performances are at Miami Theater Center’s SandBox, located at 9816 NE 2nd Ave, Miami Shores, FL 33138. Tickets are $20 and group rates are available. Call 305-751-9550 or visit www.mtcmiami.org to purchase tickets. Please be advised: this performance contains nudity and adult language.

Orchestra Miami presents the timeless holiday classic “Amahl and the Night Visitors”

Orchestra Miami invites you to get into the holiday spirit, as we present three performances of the timeless holiday classic Amahl and the Night Visitors (Amahl y los reyes magos) by Gian Carlo Menotti. This beautiful opera combines gorgeous vocal lines and lush symphonic accompaniment with a simple, touching story which reminds us about the true meaning of Christmas. The story focuses on a young crippled boy, Amahl, and his mother, who welcome some very unexpected visitors into their home- the Three Kings- who are on their way to bring gifts to the Child. Perfect for the whole family, the performance lasts approximately one hour.

The production stars 13 year old Alexander Segarra as Amahl, Jouvanca Jean-Baptiste and Marinel Cruz as the Mother, Justin John Moniz, Kunya Rowley and Miguel Llerena as Kaspar, Graham Fandrei and Nelson Martinez as Melchior, Kevin Short and Gibson Dorcé as Balthazar and Ardean Landhuis as the Page. The performances will be on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at 8:00 PM at the Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, located at 609 NE 96 Street, Miami Shores, FL 33138, conducted by Orchestra Miami’s Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi, directed by Michael Yawney, choreographed by Octavio Campos and costume design by Angela Esposito.

Orchestra Miami is pleased to continue its series of Free Family Concerts designed to introduce young children to classical music. Tough Turkey in the Big City: A Thanksgiving Odyssey, by Bruce Adolphe and Louise Gikow, will be a treat for the whole family! Perfect for the attention spans of our young audience, this fun and engaging program will last approximately 45 minutes.

What happens when a turkey from the sticks meets a Park Avenue pigeon? With the feel of an old-time radio story, Tough Turkey in the Big City follows the comic blunders of Tom Turkey, who leaves the farm to try his luck in the big city. The story, related to the audience by a narrator, illustrates a close call with a menacing chef, a tussle at the “Turkey Club”, a brief romance with a pigeon, and a happy mix up at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a big-hearted story of a plucky bird on an unexpected journey. Tom is portrayed by the bass trombone and his barnyard friends by the violin and clarinet. The music of the farm is a swinging barnyard counterpoint, while the music of the city recalls the smoky jazz of film noire. There’s also some fun march music at the parade, and hot Latin rhythms at the Turkey Club.

• Friday, November 16- 7:00 PM at the Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, 602 NE 96 Street, Miami Shores, FL 33138
• Saturday, November 17- 1:30 PM at the North Dade Regional Library, 2455 NW 183 Street, Miami, FL 33056

Performances are sponsored in part by the Miami-Dade Public Library System. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, children are asked to bring canned goods, to be donated to local food banks.

Celebrating its Sixth Anniversary, Orchestra Miami’s mission is to bring world-class quality symphonic music to all South Floridians. For more information, please go to our website at www.OrchestraMiami.org or call (305) 274-2103.

Miami Shores Library cordially invites you to the Opening Reception of Antonio Ugarte. Organic Waters

Antonio Ugarte. Organic Waters
January 13 – March 18
Organic Waters, a new exhibit of oil paintings by established Venezuelan born – American artist, Antonio Ugarte , explores the metaphoric significance and aesthetic depths of water, life’s essential liquid. Whether contained in pools, flowing free, unleashed in waterfalls and waves, or “dancing” in fountains, Ugarte’s artistic eye captures the paradox of water as both familiar and mysterious; ordinary yet illusionary. Ugarte paints water and flowers as a reflection of the spirit, a form of meditation. He sees water as “a primordial element” in life and the physical environment; a source of both energy and serenity. He uses water as a resource to explore the “aesthetic treatment on the surface of the canvas” and, at the same time, the “connotations mysteriously left behind the surface to be discovered by the observer.”

Flowers bring to the forefront of our minds to remain humble in our endeavors and to always hold the belief that beauty is only skin deep and that it is what is inside that truly matters. Water’s shape and color are critical elements in Ugarte’s work. According to the artist, “water is always working to become round”, symbolic of the “whole of the universe” and the life-force of the Chi. Ugarte lives and works in his studio in Coral Gables. Ugarte’s work hangs in the Museum of Contemporary Art in his native Valencia and in the museum of the Organization of American States in Washington, D.C. among others.

If you need more information about his work please call 305 323 7155 or visit his web site: www.antoniougarte.com.

About DJ Induce
Just as the things we want the most are the hardest to attain, DJ Induce, while gaining an increasing amount of exposure over the last few years, has been and will remain a rarity in his field – one which, at least in Miami, he could have arguably created. Yet, he is far from unknown. Reared on early to mid-ninety’s Hip Hop, Induce would study and recreate the clean, simple, yet classic scratches first created by the masters in order to create the unique style of DJing he calls his own.

Gliding through the genres without feeling out of place, Induce has become the go-to DJ in Miami for those seeking that next sound. Whether he is needed to create an atmosphere for The Miami Art Museum’s open house, poolside at the world-renowned Fontainebleau Hotel, making indie hipsters pump their fists until 5am at Miami’s 9 year indie staple, Poplife, or keeping the sweat drenched grown folks feeling sexy with his classic disco sets, it is no wonder why he was voted by the Miami New Times as best club DJ of 2008.

Induce also continually releases DJ mixes; many available for download on the Hometeam Podcast in the iTunes store, including an exquisite mix recorded live at LA’s legendary Do-Over party. Under the name, Midnight Moroders, he has also teamed with fellow Miami DJ’s, including Danny Daze (of DiscoTech) to produce a masterful mix of Italo-Disco, ranging from the rare to the classic Italo favorites.

“I had attended many screenwriting workshops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and even London so when a workshop was finally offered in my home town of Miami I thought ‘I can’t take another class! What could I get out of it that I haven’t gotten from all the rest?’ I was wrong. Harriette Yahr’s expertise and great skill as a teacher presented crucial material the other courses somehow overlooked and the intimate size of this class allows for one on one guidance on writing assignments.” Lissette Decos

“Harriette is a fount of knowledge about the film industry. She connects well with the students and maintains a relationship afterwards. Great classes!” Bill Butland

Count Carlo Gozzi’s beloved comedy for children, The Love of Three Oranges returns to the stage to delight audiences of all ages, January 12 – February 6, 2011 at The PlayGround Theatre, 9806 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami Shores.

Prince Tartaglia has been sick for ten years. He has tried every treatment imaginable, but nothing makes him feel better. Finally, a pair of strange doctors reveals a possible cure: laughter. The king hires a famous comedian to perform at the palace, but as soon as the prince laughs, an evil witch curses him, making him wander the world feverishly searching for three mysterious oranges. A good wizard helps Tartaglia overcome several obstacles on his way to finding the oranges, and the prince returns home with much more than fruit.

The Love of Three Oranges begins at The PlayGround Theatre, 9806 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami Shores on Wednesday, January 12th at 10am. Weekday performances (Tuesday-Friday) are usually at 10am, with weekend performances at 2pm. There will be a special evening performance on Saturday, January 29th at 7pm.
