Staff Picks: Two Shows and Mini Heaven


Gingerbread Holiday Concert

Picked by Kevin Kaminski, Editor

“The 12th renewal of this musical spectacular, presented by the Friends of the Conservatory of Music at Lynn University, may have a new venue (the Wold Performing Arts Center instead of the Boca Raton Resort & Club), but expect the same type of inspired performances that made this event a holiday classic in Boca. Among the performers this Sunday (Dec. 7) at 3 p.m.: Seanna Pereira, a 9-year-old certain to wow the capacity crowd with her talent.”

My Old Lady at Palm Beach Dramaworks

Picked by John Thomason, Assistant Editor

“If you missed the too-brief run of the movie ‘My Old Lady’ this past fall—or even if you saw it—you’ll want to experience this funny, dark and touching story in its original theatrical form at Palm Beach Dramaworks. Written by Israel Horovitz, the play follows a divorced man battling personal demons whose last vestige of hope—an inherited apartment in France—arrives with the unwanted baggage of an elderly lady with claims on the residence. Dramaworks’ production stars a major actress of stage and screen: Estelle Parsons, best known for her movie roles in “Dick Tracy” and “Bonnie and Clyde” and a recurring part on “Rosanne.” It runs Dec. 5 to Jan. 4.”

VISTA MINI of Coconut Creek

Picked by Nancy Kumpulainen, Assistant Art Director

“I had such a good experience searching for a new car at VISTA MINI. My sales rep, Amanda, helped me find exactly what I was looking for and then some. Excellent customer service, no pressure and friendly staff. I love my new MINI!”
