The evening will include a multi-media presentation of his life; the son of a socialite mother and a father who was a back-up singer for Marilyn Monroe. Albert's poetry speaks of the tensions between the Anglo and Hispanic world’s as well as his own journey as a gay man. Against the backdrop of his mementos and personal experiences this will be an evening you will long remember.  Please join them for this exciting event at the Library. The presentation is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.

Claire, Julie's best friend, goes along with Julie's secret quest and
eventually moves in with her. Both women are on a search to realize their dreams and come to terms with their love for each other. Suggested Donation $2 Discussion follows if time permits.

The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen through the Eyes of Cole Porter

The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen through the Eyes of Cole PorterBen Bagley’s musical revue, The Decline and Fall of the Entire World as Seen through the Eyes of Cole Porter, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter, opened August 23 at Caldwell Theatre Company to impressive reviews.  With Porter songs spanning several decades, this glimpse into the repertoire of one of our most important songwriters (both lyrics and music) offered a magical evening of well known and lesser known musical gems. Directed by Michael Hall and featuring Elizabeth Dimon, Terrell Hardcastle, Suzy Jackson, Bruce Linser and Connie SaLoutos, with musical direction by Eric Alsford, this musical revue was every bit as sophisticated as the great Porter himself.  Steinway Piano Gallery of Boca Raton graciously partnered with Caldwell by providing a magnificent baby grand piano, which, at center stage, was musical perfection and visually compelling as well. Caldwell’s video projection system integrated graphic elements that enhanced the theatrical elements of the revue.  Tim Bennett’s show-stopper set in red, black and silver, along with visually stunning lighting effects by Aaron Torgerson, sound and video projection by Sean Lawson and costumes by Erin Amico rounded out the overall perfection of Caldwell’s presentation. If you wish to be entertained by top-notch singers performing the songs of the one-and-only Cole Porter, come to Caldwell and feel your heart sing again by this Sunday September 17. Box Office:  877-245-7432 or 561-241-7432.  Group rates are available. TICKETS:  $32.50 and $41.50
