Entry Fee: Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

History Fort Lauderdale, celebrating 60 years of being the proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “Tranquil Tropics: The Art of Tim Forman & Friends” from Sunday, July 10 through Sunday, September 11. This all-new summer art exhibit featuring Forman’s award-winning work alongside lauded local artists including Linda Apriletti, Hitomi Saito, Diane Delorey, Tammy Seymour, Danielle Perry and Connie Commette will focus on Florida’s tropical beauty and its conservation. The exhibit will open with an artist group meet and greet reception at noon on July 10 at the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue).

Tim Forman is the third generation of Formans to have been born and reared in South Florida. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

All of the works will be exhibited in a newly renovated art space on the first level of the New River Inn. Visitors may also donate $10 to the museum to be entered into a raffle to win an original Tim Forman 12” x 24” artwork entitled “Beach Surf.” The winner will be announced on Sept. 12 (need not be present to win).

Entry to the exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

In addition to “Tranquil Tropics: The Art of Tim Forman & Friends,” History Fort Lauderdale is proud to host a variety of engaging multicultural experiences, year-round. Permanent exhibits include “From Dugouts to Dream Yachts,” a visual narrative weaving the story of the ever-changing use of Fort Lauderdale’s waterways by following the strokes of the first people to today’s sightseers, “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of stories and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts an artists’ collective collaborative space.

History Fort Lauderdale is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request.

Una mujer busca el amor y el sentido de la vida, luego de la pérdida de su madre y el retiro laboral. Transita el duelo rastreando nuevas señales y motivaciones, abrazando la ficción, en sus visitas diarias a un viejo cine de barrio – que se resiste a morir – y en la experimentación de prácticas esotéricas, que podrían establecer un puente de comunicación con el más allá.

Vampire attacks, werewolf sightings, and the resurrection of an Egyptian Princess all make an appearance in Island City Stage’s newest production of “The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful” by Charles Ludlam, running June 9 – July 10. This hilarious send-up of gothic romance and horror films, in which two actors and lightning-fast costume changes are the stars of the show, is part of the award-winning theater company’s 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.

Directed by Andy Rogow, this entertaining production is focused on an English estate haunted by the former mistress who has recently passed (or has she?). Add-in mummies, secret identities and a ton of madcap blunders all under the escapist guise of a gothic penny dreadful – grim short stories made popular in the mid-1800s and turned out en masse. The twist, here, is the high humor, 35 costume quick-changes and dozens of wigs that bring an eclectic cast of characters to life in this camp classic from Charles Ludlam (1943-1987), creator of New York’s Ridiculous Theatrical Company. “The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful” originally premiered in October 1984 at the Sheridan Square Playhouse in New York City where it played for two years, and it remains Ludlam’s most popular play.

“The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful” stars Bruce Linser and Larry Buzzeo.

Bruce Linser is a South Florida actor and director who last appeared at Island City Stage as Philip in “The Pride.” Other favorite roles include Artie in “The House of Blue Leaves” (Palm Beach Dramaworks), Man in Chair in “The Drowsy Chaperone” (The Wick Theatre), and Cliff in “Cabaret” (Maltz Jupiter Theatre). Favorite directing projects include “Man of La Mancha” and “Avenue Q” (MNM Theatre Company), and Woody Guthrie’s “American Song and The Spitfire Grill” (Palm Beach Dramaworks). He is also the manager of the Dramaworkshop in charge of new play development at Palm Beach Dramaworks. Linser is a member of Actors’ Equity Association and an associate member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society.

As they say in Poltergeist, “He’s baaack!” Proudly holding the distinction of “local actor who has appeared in the most Island City Stage productions,” Larry Buzzeo is ecstatic to reprise the role (or roles) for which he won the coveted Loafy award (a loaf of Cuban Bread) in Tampa, Florida, a decade ago. Though a Stamford, Connecticut native, Buzzeo’s professional theater life took root in the Sunshine State and Island City Stage is one of his favorite haunts. Fancying himself a character actor, Buzzeo is grateful for the opportunity to bring some truly colorful characters to life in Island City Stage productions including “Pig Tale,” “Hir,” “Grey Gardens,” “POZ,” “Daniel’s Husband” and almost every “Shorts Gone Wild.” His comedy-horror credits also include Dr. Frank-n-Furter in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (Slow Burn Theatre) and Dr. Frederick Frankenstein in “Young Frankenstein” (Pembroke Pines Theatre of Performing Arts).

“The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful” is sponsored by Robert Korn and Al Menendez with support from Our Fund, the SHS Foundation, the Broward County Cultural Council and Florida Department of State Division of Arts & Culture.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season kicked off with “The Twentieth Century Way” by Tom Jacobson in October, followed by “Armature” by Andrew Kramer and “Suddenly Last Summer” by Tennessee Williams.

Island City Stage is located at 2304 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors. Show tickets are $35 each and are available at islandcitystage.org/the-mystery-of-irma-vep.
