‘Bridges of Madison County’ opens at Players By the Sea

BOMC
"The Bridges of Madison County" is a beautiful & moving musical that kicks off the 2019 northeast Florida premiere of Players by the Sea.  The sbow is a musical adaptation of the bestselling novel by Robert James Waller, and chronicles the four-day affair between an Italian war bride and a traveling National Geographic photographer who comes to Iowa to shoot the area’s fabled covered bridges. Based off of the bestselling novel written by Robert James Waller, Bridges tells of how the sadness of Francesca’s solitude is broken when her husband and children leave for the 1965 Iowa State Fair and a weary Robert Kincaid stops to ask directions for his assignment.  The pair’s connection is instant and deep, yet short-lived. But that liaison will haunt them both for the rest of their lives.

The Bridges of Madison County features an incredibly talented team of local volunteers, onstage and off. The cast is led by Erin Barnes as Francesca and David Diehl as Robert Kincaid. Eric Yarham, Lexi Inks, Susan Roche, Del Austin, Kaylee Hendry, John Flannagan, Jodie Jernigan, Zoe Bell, Leanne Gullo, Jodie Jernigan, Alex Young and Richie Rosado round out the cast.  The production is directed by Lee Hamby (Managing Director of The 5 & Dime) and Suzanne Hudson-Smith (Executive Director of Players by the Sea).  Zeek Smith is the music director.  The STAGE Fund (Diane Brunet-Garcia, Lisa Goodrich & Alicia Sommers) is the presenting sponsor.

Former member of ‘Grateful Dead' coming to JAX

To fill in the touring and creative gaps till the next Dead and Company tour, Bob Weir will be exploring songs of the Grateful Dead and more in a trio setting.  Bob Weir and Wolf Bros featuring Bob Weir, Don Was and Jay Lane will come to the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre on March 27 at 8 p.m.

Bob Weir, rhythm and lead guitarist for the Grateful Dead, Dead & Company and Ratdog; famed bassist Don Was, founder of the ‘80s funk-rock band Was (Not Was) and known for the hits: “Walk The Dinosaur” and “Spy In The House Of Love”; and Ratdog drummer Jay Lane form this new trio that will perform songs by the Grateful Dead like: “Cassidy,” “Touch of Grey,” “Jack Straw,” “Friend of The Devil” and others.

As one of the founding members of the legendary Grateful Dead, which received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, Weir has become one of rock’s finest and most first album of solo material in more than 10 years and his first album of entirely original material in more than 30 years.  Weir is currently a member of Dead & Company which features Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti.

Weir says, “Wolf Bros is something that really took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was came up to TRI and helped us piece together Dead & Company. For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer. We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this…”

‘Godspell’ is a wonderful musical in JAX


The Alhambra Theatre and Dining is proud to present the acclaimed Broadway musical Godspell, and you would do yourself a great dishonor if you miss this one.  As I said in my Small Group, “I resolve NOT to be so Spirit minded that I’m NO earthly good.”  Some people got up and left the show during the middle of the first act and it must have been very disturbing to the actors, because it was to my husband and me.  Those people will NOT be able to show anyone the goodness of God.
 

The whole presentation is a modern-day interpretation of WWJD.  Sure, there were no cell phones in the days of Christ and His Disciples, yet the subtle differences will attract young people to the knowledge of the truth, and will entertain those who are more mature.

There is nothing blasphemous about “Godspell” the musical, nonetheless, it’s wonderful to see the scriptures come to life, even if one doesn’t know any Bible stories - there is something for everyone, both young and mature.  A smile stayed on my face during most of the play.  The only scripture mistake was during the Last Supper; only one disciple would deny that they knew Jesus.  For those who are Bible scholars, I challenge you to find any other fault with this man or this show.

And for those who don’t know the Bible according to Matthew - learn about the journey of Jesus Christ and His Peeps.  There are so many short stories intertwined with marvelous songs and dance from the ENTIRE CAST.  Major Kudos to everyone!  Loved the interaction that the cast had with the audience.  You will enjoy a touch of vaudeville, Broadway, slapstick, harmony, energy and meaningful interpretations.  And don’t forget to ask Tod Booth about the meaning of “the Flower” that Jesus presented to the other cast members; or can you guess?

OBTW, Kudos go to the staff of servers and the following: lighting (Daniel Dungan), props (Dave Dionne & Ian Black), choreography (Shain Stroff), line changes (Tod Booth), and for costumes (Camala Pitts & Dorinda Quiles).

I challenge anyone to attend and let me know your thoughts on “Godspell” now appearing at the Alhambra Theater & Dining.  My husband saw both Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell when he was in high school, and he was very impressed with this production. (Video Photos courtesy of Jamie Iames)

‘Artful Umami’ and ‘Adam Levine’ big success at Cummer Museum

Jacksonville Florida is proud to have Mr. Adam M. Levine as the Director and CEO of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, as he welcomed guests to a wonderful evening (on Thursday, January 10, 2019) at theArtful Umami Japanese Dinner Party.  The event featured delicious oriental foods, Japanese entertainment, festive displays and an open bar.  The servers, security and staff gave attendees the VIP treatment throughout the evening.  Guests were able to visit the many, many pieces of artwork throughout the building and the evening.

No, Mr. Levine is not the same Adam Levine who will be performing at
Superbowl LIII halftime show with the group Maroon 5, with  rapper, actor and entrepreneur - Big Boi and with rapper Travis Scott; but the newly appointed Adam M. Levine is in place to bring more wonderful events, exhibits, cultures and history to the Cummer Museum.

Hurricane Irma tried to destroy the lush beautiful Cummer Gardens, nonetheless, through
generous ongoing donations, and expert restoration - the museum is flourishing and is in expectation of your next visit.


If you missed the Artful Umami dinner party, please make sure you purchase your tickets for the
Captivation Caper Mystery Dinner Party in April and/or the Soirée Dinner Party in June of 2019.  It’s a New Year and also time to explore different cultures and unique art.  It’s time to reserve your place for these exciting events.
