Several years ago, Melissa Manchester decided she wanted to record another album. No longer with a big label, she had to figure how. Her young students taught her what to do.

In 2013, Manchester launched an Idiegogo campaign that raised more than $40,000 of her $70,000 goal and 'You Gotta Love the Life' got made.
With her first new album in 10 years, Grammy-winning pop star Melissa Manchester sings Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Jazziz in Boca Raton.

Judy Gold says she’s heavily pressured by friends and family to marry partner Elysa Halpern.

“I have these friends, they’re in their 50s, late 40s, all these people getting married and I have to buy wedding gifts? I thought that whole thing was done, you know what I mean? You’ve been together for 75 years and I have to buy you a gift? Why do I have to pay? Half of them are wealthier than I am. You know, like widows and widowers — when they get married again in their 60s, 70s, do they get gifts? Yeah — like Cialis or something.”
Stand-up comic Judy Gold on Saturday plays the RRazz Room at Coral Springs Center For the Arts and on Sunday christens the new RRazz Room at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center with her club act, ‘If You Only Knew the Agony.’

There's nothing left to say ...
‘Tonight we honor Hollywood’s best and whitest – I mean brightest,” Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris said early in Sunday’s show. Perhaps that’s why Harris later walked onstage during the broadcast wearing only his tighty whities.

“It’s especially important for the public school, high school audience to see. It’s set in a high school and those kids who see it will see issues they deal with every day,” GableStage director Joseph Adler said. “Hopefully this will lead to discussion about bullying, especially as it relates to sexual orientation.”
For four days beginning Tuesday, Choir Boy, a play about high school bullying, homophobia, compassion, will be performed mornings at the Joseph Caleb Auditorium in Liberty City for students from across Miami-Dade County.
