Little Women at Gables Cinema
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters -- four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March. http://www.gablescinema.com/events/little-women/

The NightGarden at Fairchild
NightGarden is an enchanted, illuminated experience full of fantasy and wonderment at Fairchild Garden where the wise-talking tree, flying fairies, holographic butterflies and floating orchids throughout multiple acres of dazzling magic come to life. Topping the experience is a delightful selection from some of Miami’s best restaurants. https://www.fairchildgarden.org/Events-Community-Outreach/the-nightgarden-at-fairchild-85

First Friday - Giralda Under The Stars
Make plans to attend Giralda Under the Stars the First Friday of every month for a delightful al fresco dining experience at Giralda Plaza, with live entertainment, starting at 7pm.

Starts Jan 18 - Ordinary Americans at GableStage
Written by Joseph McDonough, enjoy this World Premiere Co-Production with Palm Beach Dramaworks runing through February 16. In the early 1950s, Gertrude Berg and Phillip Loeb, the pioneering stars of television’s groundbreaking sitcom, The Goldbergs, heroically struggle to save their show, their careers, and their friendship in the face of McCarthyism, anti-semitism, and the political climate of the country. Based on actual events, Ordinary Americans reveals the double-edged sword between speaking out and staying silent. http://www.gablestage.org

Starts Jan 22 - Mamma Mia at Miracle Theatre
Over 60 million people worldwide have fallen in love with the characters, the story and the music that make Mamma Mia! the ultimate feel-good show. This sunny and funny tale follows the story of a young woman's search for her birth father on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers, told through the story telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs, propel this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship into one of the most unforgettable musicals of all time.

An incisive, witty roadmap into the disinformation and betrayals of President Trump -- just in time for the 2020 election.

"If you spend so much time golfing, tweeting, and seething," write Green and Nader, "it's understandable that a POTUS doesn't get around to appointing one-third of all agency inspector generals... Might as well expect a surgeon to be an opera singer." More information

Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters -- four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
