Adrienne Barbeau, her trapeze and the rest of the 'Pippin' company arrive Tuesday for 12 days at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
Adrienne Barbeau, a 1970s TV role model as Maude’s divorced daughter Carol — and equally famous as sexy “scream queen” of ex-husband John Carpenter’s horror films — is soon to be 70 and setting a new standard for modern women of a certain age: She’s raising teenage twins and swinging from a trapeze in the Broadway touring company of Pippin.

Charles Busch says he contemplated doing the show as himself, without appearing as “a cross between Ginger in Gilligan’s Island and Norma Shearer.”

A good friend talked him out of it. “He said, ‘If I came to your show and you weren’t in drag, it would be like going to Disneyland and finding out that Space Mountain was closed,’” Busch recalls. “I said, ‘Maybe the tea cup ride?’ He said, ‘No, Space Mountain.’”
Tony-nominated playwright Charles Busch, one of the world’s best-known female impersonators, performs Saturday night at the Rrazz Room in Coral Springs.

“Make no mistake: This proposal is political revenge against the move led by Rep. David Richardson,” Tony Lima, executive director of Miami-Dade LGBT-rights group SAVE, said in an email to the Miami Herald.
One week after Florida’s first openly gay lawmaker announced the state was on the way to finally striking its unconstitutional 1977 gay adoption ban, conservatives quietly crafted a legislative amendment that would allow private agencies to deny adoptions based on “religious or moral convictions.”

“I’ve worked with Christine for a number of years,” says Michael Feinstein, one of the nation’s top cabaret performers and keeper of The Great American Songbook. “She is one of the most brilliant musical minds with whom I’ve ever collaborated. She cannot be categorized. She’s known for Broadway. … Her musical palette is large and diverse. She sings everything from every era of pop — ’80s, ’70s, ’60s. She can handle it all. She can sing anything. I consider her to be one of the most complete, perfect singers.”
Two-time Tony winner Christine Ebersole and star singer-pianist Michael Feinstein perform Friday night at the Adrienne Arsht Center in downtown Miami in a Jazz Roots presentation titled ‘Jazz Meets Broadway.’

“Set to premiere this summer, Jazz will explain how she handles all the typical teen experiences, including dating, sleepovers and high school. You'll get to know Jazz, but also her understanding parents, Greg and Jeanette, her grandparents Jack and Jacky, and her siblings Ari, Griffen and Sander,” according to TCL’s website.
Jazz Jennings, the transgender South Florida teen who last year wrote a children’s book, ‘I Am Jazz,’ has made an endorsement commercial for skincare products and gotten her own TV reality show.

Three of M-G-M’s top films — The Band Wagon (1953 starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse), Kiss Me Kate (1953 starring Howard Keel, Kathryn Grayson and Ann Miller), and Singin’ in the Rain (1952, starring Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor) — are packaged with Doris Day’s 1953 hit, Calamity Jane, from Warner Bros.
Warner Home Video has climbed aboard the musical bandwagon, with a gorgeous Blu-ray set featuring four great musicals from the early 1950s: ‘The Band Wagon,’ ‘Calamity Jane,’ ‘Kiss Me Kate’ and ‘Singin’ in the Rain.’

The bill (HB 583) would make it a second-degree misdemeanor to “knowingly and willfully” enter a public facility, such as a bathroom or locker room, that is restricted to members “of the other biological sex.” Maximum penalties would be 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
A bill that would ban transgender Floridians from using single-sex bathrooms that don’t match the gender of their birth passed a second House committee Tuesday, following hours of debate.
