Theatre
Paradise Motel
Miami Theater Center’s 2013-2014 SandBox Series brings Paradise Motel to Miami, written by Juan C. Sanchez. Paradise Motel tells the story of a seedy motel on Calle Ocho from its pristine heyday in the 1950s to its decayed, present-day existence. Told in seven scenes, each one taking place in the same room of a motel, but in a different decade and with different characters, the play explores how the gradual deterioration of the motel mirrors its clientele and traces the neighborhood’s evolution into Little Havana. Blending theater, music, and video, the piece will recreate a snapshot of Miami through the decades and bring to life the colorful people who have made Miami what it is today. The individual stories are about love, sex, fear, jealousy, death, and hope. It’s provocative and entertaining, as pulpy as Miami itself. 8pm. $15 – $20. Miami Theater Center, 9806 NE 2nd Ave; Miami Shores. For info: 305-751-9550 or mtcmiami.org

Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler’s questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, Uganda Be Kidding Me has Handler taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

Aftermath
A peaceful and idyllic village in the Polish countryside harbors a dark secret: the collective murder of their Jewish neighbors during World War II. When two brothers unearth the secret, they must come to terms with the legacy of their family, their hometown, and the narrative of their nation’s history. Franek and Jozek Kalina, sons of a poor farmer, are brothers from a small village in central Poland. Franek immigrated to the United States in the 80’s, and cut all ties with his family. Only when Jozek’s wife arrives in the US, without explanation, does Franek finally return to his homeland. Franek discovers that Jozek has been ostracized from the community, and constantly receives various threats. As Franek and Jozek struggle to rebuild their relationship, they are drawn into a gothic tale of intrigue. The two brothers eventually uncover a dark secret that forces them to confront the history of their family and their hometown. On its release in Poland, Aftermath received acclaim and also generated intense controversy. Polish nationals have accused the film of being anti-Polish propaganda, as well as a distortion of a sensitive piece of Polish history. The film has been banned in some Polish cinemas, and actor Maciej Stuhr (Jozek) has received death threats. O Cinema Miami Shores, 9806 NE 2nd Ave; Miami Shores. For info: 786-565-FILM.

Classic Florida Style: The Houses of Taylor and Taylor
The Miami Beach-based architecture and interior design firm presents luxurious private residences from Orlando to Key West, reinterpreting Florida styles from Mediterranean to Art Deco. Though the husband-and-wife team of Taylor & Taylor travel widely to find design inspiration in the U.S., Europe, South and Central America, and the Caribbean—they always retain their first love: the historic architecture of Florida itself and its blend of rustic and romantic, from Italianate palazzos to Art Deco hotels and Key West’s bungalows. Classic Florida Style presents ten coastal residences in resplendent photography to match the tropical hues and lush natural surroundings of the sunshine state. Design lovers will see not only homes that integrate orange groves and sunsets reflecting off Biscayne Bay, but also gorgeous interiors that take full advantage of Florida’s crystalline light—superbly crafted spaces in which the ocean breezes can almost be felt ruffling the curtains. Locales range from a private island near Key West, to Coral Gables, Fisher Island, and Lake Thonotosassa, northeast of Tampa—even the South Carolina home of one Florida-minded football giant, a former quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. Whether drawing on the architecture of British Colonial Bermuda, or the Spanish-inspired designs of George Washington Smith and Wallace Neff in California, each home takes full advantage of glamorous indoor-outdoor living and a seamless blend of native Florida materials and singular antiques. The Authors will be at Books & Books to discuss the book tonight. 8pm. Free. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave; Coral Gables. For info: booksandbooks.com

Lecture
Bean Gilsdorf and Paula Wilson
Voluptuous butts, palm reading, craft, and living history museums are just some of the subjects permeating the work of artists Bean Gilsdorf and Paula Wilson. Learn more about their artistic practices and welcome them to Miami tonight, as they begin their residencies at Cannonball. Gilsdorf is an artist and writer. Her recent art projects compare systems of history that appear as both individual accounts and as unified public narratives. Her performances explore personal history through improvisation; while more traditional works—objects, videos, and installations—investigate archived historical records by appropriating and manipulating images from mass-market history books. In San Francisco, she operates the Bean Gilsdorf Living History Museum. Wilson received her MFA from Columbia University in 2005 and has since been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and Europe, including the Studio Museum Harlem; Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York; Bellwether Gallery, New York; Fred Snitzer Gallery, Miami; The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; Johan Berggren Gallery, Sweden; and Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw.

Steve Hackett
Steve Hackett, pioneering lead guitarist for Genesis, one of the most important bands in the history of progressive rock, comes to South Florida for one night in support of his latest release entitled Genesis Revisited II.

You could have short songs, long songs, loud bits, quiet moments, boys’ own adventures, pantomime, humor, big band sounds, jazz, classical music…there was no barrier to what we were doing.” Instead of a song list of the pop-oriented tunes that Genesis featured in its later tours, Hackett will perform Genesis progressive rock music in its purest form. 8pm. $50.35 – $177.55.

Books
The Havana Archive
Havana: Once the playground of the rich and famous, where Cuban rum flowed in legendary nightclubs, luxury hotels, and casinos, and celebrities danced the mambo till dawn—as well as a vital hub for drug running and money laundering. This fascinating book, drawn from an archive of press photographs and ephemera thought to have been the property of Capone-era Chicago gangster and bookie Grover Dullard, captures the essence of Havana from the 1920s through the ’50s with a wealth of evocative detail. Photographer Basil Hyman discovered this trove of Cuban treasures in Paris, and it led him on a voyage of discovery to Havana’s rich past. His book’s unique visual approach builds a picture of glamour and decadence in a mixture of photographs and memorabilia—postcards, menus, cocktail napkins, matchbooks, and much more; some reproduced as removable facsimiles. This book will transport the reader back to a long-lost world. The Author will be at Books & Books to discuss the book tonight. 6pm. Free. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave; Coral Gables.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at the Grand Budapest, a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. A hotel foyer is not unlike a stage, and legendary concierge Monsieur Gustave is the tacit director of many a wonderful entrance or exit in this particular hotel. He knows the proclivities and secret desires of his eccentric guests who come from far and wide. Some of the ladies in particular are most grateful. One such individual is quirky Madame D, who bequeaths Gustave a valuable Renaissance painting. Her resentful son Dimitri accuses Gustave of having murdered his mother and of legacy hunting. Gustave winds up in prison. But thanks to his knowledge of human nature, a bald fellow inmate and some gaudy patisserie, he manages to secure his release. When turbulent events show no signs of abating, lobby boy Zero Moustafa becomes his confidante. Together they set off in search of the missing painting. They soon find themselves caught up in a dangerous row about family assets as well as in the turmoil of a rapidly changing society between the wars. 5pm, 7:15pm & 9:30pm.

Books
Thrive
Arianna Huffington in conversation with Donna Shalala tonight at the University of Miami. In her new book Thrive, Huffington makes an impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world. Her personal wake-up call came in the form of a broken cheekbone and a nasty gash over her eye — the result of a fall brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep. As the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group — one of the fastest growing media companies in the world — celebrated as one of the world’s most influential women, and gracing the covers of magazines, she was, by any traditional measure, extraordinarily successful. Yet as she found herself going from brain MRI to CAT scan to echocardiogram, to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond exhaustion, she wondered is this really what success feels like? As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success — money and power — has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we’re losing our connection to what truly matters. Our current definition of success is, as Thrive shows, literally killing us. We need a new way forward. 5pm. University of Miami Field House, 1245 Dauer Dr; Coral Gables. For info: booksandbooks.com

Green
Climate Change Series Part IV: Sand Wars
Co-Hosted by the Surfrider Foundation, ECOMB’s Cinema Green Project will resume its three-month look at climate change, its importance as well as its relevance to Miami Beach and the South Florida Region with the screening of the award-winning French-produced documentary Sand Wars. Past screenings addressed ocean acidification, sea-level rise, greenhouse gases, coral bleaching and beach erosion. Tonight’s film was Directed by Denis Delestrac. By the end of the 21st century, beaches will be a thing of the past. That is the alarming forecast of a growing number of scientists and environmental NGOs. Sand has become a vital commodity for our modern economies: we use it in our toothpaste, detergents, and cosmetics, and computers and mobiles couldn’t exist without it.  Our houses, skyscrapers, bridges and airports are all basically made with sand: it has become the most widely consumed natural resource on the planet after fresh water.  The worldwide construction boom fuelled by emerging economies and increasing urbanization has led to intensive sand extraction on land and in the oceans, with damaging environmental impacts. Sand Wars takes us around the world as it tracks the contractors, sand smugglers and unscrupulous property developers involved in the new gold rush, and meets the environmentalists and local populations struggling to reverse the threat to the future of this resource that we all take for granted. City of Miami Beach Sustainability Committee Chair and Flooding Mitigation Committee Vice-Chair, Commissioner Michael Grieco will be the special guest of the evening. Stay for a Q & A via Skype with: Producer Guillame Rappeneau, who will be visiting Miami for the South Florida release of Sand Wars, and Dr. Chad Nelsen, Surfrider Foundation Environmental Director and expert on beach renourishment. 7pm.

The Richman Gifts: American Impressionism and Realism
Last year, long-time museum supporters Priscilla and John Richman gave the Norton five American paintings. To celebrate their generosity, the museum has organized a focus exhibition that will showcase these works alongside the six American pictures the couple gave as a promised gift in 2002. The Richmans’ collecting has centered around American painters who worked in representational styles in the first decades of the twentieth century. Although this was the era when American artists began experimenting with abstraction, many concluded that a connection to the visible world was necessary for their work. This exhibition includes beautiful American Impressionist paintings by Frederick Frieseke and Abbott Fuller Graves, insightful depictions of working class people by Ashcan School artists Robert Henri and John Sloan, and Social Realist and Regionalist work by leading 1930s artists Thomas Hart Benton and Rockwell Kent. Together, they demonstrate the variety of ways American painters addressed their newly modern world in the early 20th century. Norton Museum of Art, 1451 S. Olive Ave; West Palm Beach.
