Now Playing!

May 25 - July 1

Even as Mary Goodman, a woman of the 'greatest generation' is mourning the loss of her husband, her daughter Deborah is encouraging her to end her period of mourning and move on with a new independence. In a series of scenes between Mary, Deborah, and Mary's mother, Bessie, Mary reflects back on her life as a daughter, wife and mother. Three actresses play the three women over the course of sixty-five years, and as we see Mary's life progress from childhood to matrimony to motherhood, we begin to understand how each successive generation of women lives up to the expectations of the past and makes brave new choices about the future.

Marge and Lois arrive at 'Esther's Paradise Resort' Labor Day weekend 1960, on a holiday that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon - until the groom left her at the altar. A sweetly comic musical,   Breaking Up is Hard to Do is set to the music of pop icon Neil Sedaka, and the score showcases 18 Sedaka classics, including "Where the Boys Are", "Sweet Sixteen", "Calendar Girl", "Love Will Keep Us Together", and of course, the chart-topping title song.
Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco, but her plans backfire when Del mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can further his ambitions to become the next teen heartthrob on American Bandstand. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe. And in the meantime, when he isn't entertaining guests with his comical Borscht Belt shtick, house comedian Harvey is secretly carrying a torch for widowed resort owner Ester, who is more preoccupied with keeping her hotel open.

For theater fans who "Can't Fight the Feeling" of longing for a summer show with hot music and dramatic fireworks, Slow Burn Theatre Company and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts are ready to turn up the volume with the hit musical, Rock of Ages.

On Sunset Strip a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA's most famous rock club they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s.  Rock of Ages is an arena-rock love story told through the mind blowing, face melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benetar... and many more!

This musical celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship'!
From dating and waiting to love and marriage... and the agonies and triumphs of in-laws, newborns, trips in the family car, and the pick-up techniques of the older set, this hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, "What are you doing on Saturday night?"
