By Michelle F. Solomon, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, April 12, 2014 - The Wick Theatre has trotted out some sprawling musicals in its first season, so it couldn’t be demure when picking its first non-musical production. Producers chose Steel Magnolias, approaching it in the same broad way as their premiere season that featured such extravaganzas as White Christmas, Sound of Music and 42ndStreet. The Wick curtain opens on the theater’s first ever in-house built set, which, on opening night, received its own rousing applause. Resident scenic […]Read more ›

Really? When I first read this, I thought it was an April Fool’s joke. As a South Florida resident, am I alone in my ignorance of “firefly season”? But I did […]Read more ›
By Ann Henson Feltgen, BrowardBulldog.org, Special to EyesOnNews.com, April 11, 2014 - New downtown passenger train service that will speed users from Orlando to South Florida and back may sound like a tourism dream come true, but there’s a potentially unexpected cost to local residents. Local governments face increased costs to maintain the areas where their roads cross the tracks and some fear the closing of smaller crossings to vehicular traffic to save money. Elizabeth Fulford lives west of Broward General […]Read more ›

Solomon, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, April 10, 2014 - The small, yet “can do” Island City Stage swept the Carbonell Awards at the end of March for its production of Dan Clancy’s drama The Timekeepers. Its latest production, Have I Got A Girl For You, while not as groundbreaking as Timekeepers last fall, nonetheless has an originality that shows what this company really can do.

You will be doing the same with your list. Tent camping in Florida has some unique requirements, most related to our weather: Airy tents; strong sunscreen; insects and gators; unpredictable weather.

The teeth you find today date back for centuries — prehistoric — when sharks were prolific in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida was under the sea. Venice’s calm waters gave the Gulf’s shark’s teeth a place to […]Read more ›
