Bruce Vilanch

Friday, Oct 5, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

One of the most sought-after jokesmiths in the entertainment industry, Bruce Vilanch has become a recognizable face in his own right, thanks to the feature-length documentary "Get Bruce!" and his one-time stint as a regular on "Hollywood Squares", for which he also served as head writer.

He made his feature debut as a dress manufacturer in "Mahogany', starring Diana Ross, and also contributed material to her live act. Mr. Vilanch put his Muppet-like persona to excellent use as Santa's number one helper in the syndicated TV-movie "It Nearly Wasn't Christmas". On the heels of "Get Bruce!", Vilanch performed his comedy stylings Off-Broadway in "Bruce Vilanch: Almost Famous". After a first act reminiscing on his odd path to almost famousness, he opened up the floor to questions inAct II, displaying his amazing ability for off-the-cuff one-liners. As he told US WEEKLY, there is a downside to celebrity: "Now, I get knocked if someone tries something that doesn't work. Before it was the fault of these anonymous people, 'the writers.'"

He scripted most of the AcademyAwards telecasts over the last couple of decades, two of which won Emmys, including the one featuring Billy Crystal Hannibal Lecter entrance. Mr. Vilanch has also written for The Tony's, The Grammy's, The Emmy's, and just about every other award show to brighten your television screen. He also participates and volunteers at almost every charity function, especially those dealing with GLBT issues. Now he’s coming to a theater near you…

A Production by Lifeline Theatre

When the farmer's away, the animals will play! In this hilarious sequel to the barnyard blockbuster, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, good ol' Farmer Brown has left his city-slicker brother in charge of his farm while he takes a vacation. He's left detailed instructions on how to take care of the animals including the warning "Keep an eye on Duck. He's Trouble." But when the instructions fall into the wrong hands (or wings!), Duck takes the opportunity to do a little re-writing a few creative embellishments that result in musical madness! This funny and colorful musical for young audiences teaches respect, compromise, and the value of friendship.

Sheba Mason - Born into a theatrical family, Sheba has been performing since the age of two where she sat in her high chair and drank from her bottle. Eventually, the bottle turned into a microphone, and Sheba has not left the stage since.

Valerie Storm - This gal got her first laugh on stage at 5 in the Little Miss Fort Myers Beauty Pageant, after an interviewer asked if she liked school she answered: “Hell no, I'd rather stay home and watch cartoons”. The audience exploded and she had found her calling. After completely crushing her Mother’s hopes for a future Miss America, she went on to become a stand-up comic in 1997.

Vanessa Hollingshead – This is the quintessential New Yorker. As a child, she spent a year at Millbrook Mansion with her father as he introduced the Beatles to LSD. After an accidental “trip” of her own when she was five, she returned to her mother’s care. Throw in two years on a commune, two years in London with her dad, a decade of temp work… Vanessa’s angst was complete. An exquisite comedian was born.

Charles Zelden PhD: A Postmortem of the 2018 Midterm Elections

Tuesday, Nov 13, 2018 at 7:30 PM - English

What if we held a midterm election and everybody came? The answer depends on WHICH part of everybody showed up. Who was most energized? What issues and concerns dominated voters concerns? Or simply: Did the Blue Wave rise or did the Trump Train rumble? Join Dr. Charles L. Zelden to discuss outcomes and lessons of what many argue will be the most consequential midterm election in a generation. Dr. Zelden is Professor of history and political science at Nova Southeastern University. A legal Constitutional historian, Zelden has published seven books on civil rights, voting rights and the judicial process. Among his publications: Bush v Gore: Exposing the Hidden Crisis in American Democracy (2008) and Thurgood Marshall: Race, Rights and the Struggle for a More Perfect Union (2013). He is currently writing a book: The American Judicial System:A Very Short Introduction. Zelden is also a regular commentator on politics and current events for local and national media outlets.

The Producers

Next date: Jan 18, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Based on the 1968 film, Mel Brooks’s musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom, who hypothesizes that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance. Too bad for Bialystock & Bloom that, against all odds, the show is a total hit! With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of showstopping musical numbers, and Brooks’ signature humor keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.
