Women’s Night at Island City Stage is always interesting, but it should be even more so on April 12, given the subject matter of its current production, “Pulp.”

Set in 1950s Chicago, in the middle of a sultry summer, a tough-talking, seductive dame arrives at The Well, a club run by women who love women. When she enters these women’s lives there are lots of meaningful looks, faces in shadows, dramatic pauses, and double and triple entendre. It’s a comedic love letter to lesbian pulp fiction and the Barbara Stanwycks of the world. There won’t be a dry eye, or seat, in the house. Tonight’s event is sponsored by U-Haul. Tickets are available at islandcitystage.org


FlockFest’s website says, “Their mission is to have fun while raising money for charitable causes, making a significant difference in the lives of others.” They’ve given back $45,424 in cash to charities, so they must be doing something right. All I know is they do seem to have a lot of fun, and here are two more of their upcoming events.

"SPLASH” Pool Party T-Dance will be held on May 26 from noon to 5 p.m. at The Easton at Courtyard Downtown FTL rooftop pool, overlooking downtown Fort Lauderdale. The VIP area is sponsored by Hunters Nightclub Wilton Manors. It is a 21+ event.

The 9th Annual FlockFest beach party, sponsored by Provincetown’s The Crown & Anchor will be held on July 6 at Fort Lauderdale Beach. Music will be provided by DJ Deanne. A VIP package will be available and will include beverages, a $5 food voucher, a FlockFest Flamingo Float, and a gift bag with exclusive FlockFest swag. Tickets for both events are available at FlockFest’s website flockfestevents.org


The Delray Beach Playhouse announced its lineup for the 2024-2025 season and once again, the venue will offer a wide variety of programming designed to please its patrons.

The Mainstage Play Series will begin in Nov. with Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” followed by “Jimmy Buffet’s Escape to Margaritaville,” “Murder on the Orient Express,” and “The Bridges of Madison County.” 

In addition to these four diverse theatrical presentations in the Off Broadway Series; the popular Playhouse Presents lineup of 35 plus concerts, comedy shows, and special engagements will be announced later this summer. The nostalgic concert series Feelin’ Groovy will also return to the Playhouse next season. Starring Joan Friedenberg and Bill Bowen, who perform as The PinkSlip Duo, the series will pay tribute to folk icons Peter Paul & Mary, perform pop hits by Jewish artists, and celebrate women singer-songwriters of the ‘60s and ‘70s. 

Subscriptions for all series are on sale now. The individual ticket sales date is still to be announced. Ticket prices will vary, and group rates will be available. More information about all these productions, including show descriptions and logos, is available on the theatre’s website at delraybeachplayhouse.com.
