National Poetry Month (April) may have come and gone, but that’s no reason not to continue reading poetry throughout the year. With so many new titles by LGBTQ+ poets from which to choose, there’s practically something for everyone.

‘Disney’s Newsies,’ Slow Burn Theatre Co. 

“Disney’s Newsies,” a 1999 live action film documenting the Newsboy Strike of 1899, got the Broadway treatment just over a decade ago, with a book by Harvey Fierstein, score by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman. Slow Burn Theatre Co. at the Broward Center, the regional company to earn the trust of Disney for regional premieres, presents a high-flying, high energy production with stunning choreography by Artistic Director Patrick Fitzwater. The young men in the cast (there’s really only one female role) quickly captivate the audience, playing American ragamuffins who scrape together a living selling competing newspapers on the streets of New York. Don’t miss this show! Tickets start at $49 at BrowardCenter.org.

You might not think the House of Lords of the late 1980s and the Florida Legislature of the early 2020s would have much in common, other than questionable oral hygiene, but you’d be mistaken.

Flip through the channels or scroll down your social media feeds and it’s hard to miss the latest headlines about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ longtime feud with Disney. In the 15 months since the entertainment giant – and Florida’s largest private employer – spoke out against the anti-LGBT “Don’t Say Gay” bill, DeSantis has threatened and targeted Disney.
