Saturday – The White Crow at Gables Cinema
From his poverty-stricken childhood in Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his arrival at the epicenter of western culture and a nail-biting stand-off at Le Bourget airport, The White Crow is the true story of Rudolf Nureyev — an incredible journey by a unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever. http://www.gablesguide.com/event/the-white-crow-at-gables-cinema/2019-05-11/

Sunday – Mother’s Day in Coral Gables
Celebrate Mother’s Day with a plethora of opportunities at your favorite venues.

Starting Wednesday – Doubt at Miracle Theatre
Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, all elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley’s provocative play Doubt, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty. Doubt is blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, and a powerful drama that represents the eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. http://www.gablesguide.com/event/doubt-a-parable-at-miracle-theatre/2019-05-15/

Tuesday – Losing Earth – A Recent History
According to author Nathaniel Rich, by 1979, we knew nearly everything we understand today about climate change — including how to stop it. Over the next decade, a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists, led by two unlikely heroes, risked their careers in a desperate, escalating campaign to convince the world to act before it was too late. Losing Earth is their story, and ours. http://www.gablesguide.com/event/losing-earth-a-recent-history/
