Comedy
Pam Ann
Buckle up, bitches! Airhostess Pam Ann – who has toured with Cher and crewed private jets for Elton John – returns to the USA in her raunchiest comedy show yet. In Pam Ann: Cockpit, the gutsy and glamorous, sixties-inspired Pam Ann takes aim at the numerous airline calamities making news today.  From the grounding of Boeing 787’s Dreamliner to the Emirates Airlines’ door blowing open at 37,000ft; all the deliciously alarming incidents that are plaguing the world’s airline industry are discussed. In her performances, Pam Ann pokes fun at air travel, identifying the individual quirks of some of the biggest international airlines (and their stereotypes) and mixing in a generous dose of camp, humor and glamour.   Passengers embark on a journey from security check-in to boarding to landing. Pam Ann is the alter ego of Australian comic Caroline Reid.   Reid’s portrayal of the outrageous airhostess has been featured in advertising campaigns for British Airways and Sky Team.  In fact, as the celebrity spokeswoman of Sky Team Terminal 4 at Heathrow, Pam Ann is featured on all in-flight video programming and has been featured on CNN and CNBC. Pam Ann has appeared in promotions for KLM/Air France, JetBLue, Lufthansa, British Airways, Qantas, SAS and low cost British carrier EasyJet uses her videos in their training. 8pm.

Film
La Traviata
The reinvention of Verdi’s masterpiece, La Traviata, as sung by world-famous French coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay, is the subject of Philippe Beziat’s thrilling new movie. A modern, minimalist, post-punk approach strips away the opulence and grandiosity associated with operatic productions. Concentrating on director Jean-François Sivadier’s working relationship with Dessay, the film reveals how two great creative minds build the story of a doomed love affair. The stars rehearse in what look like yoga outfits, on a bare stage, with minimal props. The final production, set against a backdrop of sky and clouds, punctuated by a single chandelier, features Violetta and Alfredo as the very essence of hipster-chic. Their passion, however, is for the ages. With music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Louis Langree. 7pm & 9pm. $10.50. O Cinema 9806 NE 2nd Ave; Miami Shores. For info: 305-571-9970.

Theatre
la noche i.delicatissima
Don’y miss la noche i.delicatissima, an imaginative adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana. Featuring a local cast of characters selected by the play’s directors, Liz Ferrer and Sebastian Duncan Portuondo, this version takes the play’s 1940s Mexican setting, moves it to mid-’60s Cuba, and offers it a more dreamlike lens, all while staying true to the original text. A multidisciplinary event, la noche features video projections and music by local artists, along with a set that functions as a large-scale installation. True to Southernmost Situations’ mission to make work that defies art’s traditional mechanisms, the play is a combination of both classic and experimental theater, employing the use of light, color, and interactive multimedia to create a near-psychedelic aesthetic. Utilizing a revamped version of the classic Greek chorus to supplement the actions of its main characters, la noche explores abstract psychology, existentialism, and the painfully human search for purpose and place. 7:30pm. $10. Swampspace, 150 NE 42 St; Miami. For info: cannonballmiami.org or 786-347-2360.

Books
Raquel Cepeda
Digging through memories long buried, author Raquel Cepeda embarks upon a journey not only into her ancestry but also into her own history. Born in Harlem to Dominican parents, she was sent to live with her maternal grandparents in the Paraíso (Paradise) district in Santo Domingo while still a baby. It proved to be an idyllic reprieve in her otherwise fraught childhood. Paraíso came to mean family, home, belonging. When Cepeda returned to the US, she discovered her family had changed. Her mother had a new, abusive boyfriend, who relocated the family to San Francisco. When that relationship fell apart, Cepeda found herself back in New York City with her father and European stepmother: attending tennis lessons and Catholic schools; fighting vicious battles with her father, who discouraged her from expressing the Dominican part of her hyphenated identity; and immersed in the ’80s hip-hop culture of uptown Manhattan. It was in these streets, through the prism of hip-hop and the sometimes loving embrace of her community, that Cepeda constructed her own identity. Years later, when Cepeda had become a successful journalist and documentary filmmaker, the strands of her DNA would take her further, across the globe and into history. Who were her ancestors? How did they—and she—become Latina? Her journey, as the most unforgettable ones often do, would lead her to places she hadn’t expected to go. With a vibrant lyrical prose and fierce honesty, Cepeda parses concepts of race, identity, and ancestral DNA among Latinos by using her own Dominican-American story as one example, and in the process arrives at some sort of peace with her father. Cepeda  will read from and sign her book tonight. 8pm. Books and Books, 265 Aragon Ave; Coral Gables. For info: booksandbooks.com

What Daddy Did Today
What Daddy Did Today is a bedtime story for a father to read to his child. When the author, Walter Wally was a kid, he would always wonder where his father went when he left the house for work every morning. What did he do? Who was he with? Why would it take so long? Of course, he learned later that Dad was just going to the office every day. But his imagination, up to that point, told him differently. He imagined his dad traveling to space, fighting dragons, and hitting home runs while he was away “at work.” So, this is a story that, as a kid, Wally would have loved to hear his dad tell. And now, as a grown man and future dad, it’s also a story that he would love to tell his son or daughter before they go to sleep. Because, although the story is filled with fun and adventure, ultimately, it is about how much Daddy loves his kid. Wally will read from and sign his book today. 10am.

Borders of Paradise and Six Degrees of Separate Nations
FrostArt (The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU) introduces two new exhibitions, both of which feature art as a tool to establish identity: How we see ourselves and how we perceive others, now and in the past. The Borders of Paradise exhibit will feature maps, etchings and engravings, many of which appeared in literary works, which helped to reinforce and shape the Old World’s skewed perception of life in the New World. Curated by Cynthia Duval of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach. The featured artists in the Six Degrees of Separate Nations, Ebony G. Patterson and Peterson Kamwathi, are from vastly different parts of the world, Jamaica and Kenya, respectively. Despite the geographical distance between them, they ironically share much in common. The exhibition will feature a collaborative installation where the artists will meet for the first time and respond to each other’s work. Curated by Claire Breukel. Opening Reception tonight 6pm to 8pm. Come early for a panel discussion with the artists, the curator and guest speaker, Professor Patricia Saunders. 4pm.

Alan Greenberg
This book is an intimate chronicle of how visionary filmmaker, Alan Greenberg directed Every Night the Trees Disappear. Robert Johnson was undoubtedly the most outstanding of the Mississippi Delta blues musicians and also one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but his short life remains steeped in mystery and wrapped in some of the most enduring legends of modern music. Love in Vain is Greenberg’s remarkable, highly acclaimed, and genre-defying screenplay and is widely considered to be one of the foremost books on Robert Johnson’s life and legacy and an extraordinary exercise in American mythmaking. Newly revised and complete with extensive historical notes on Johnson’s life and the culture of the Mississippi Delta and blues music during the 1930s, Love in Vain is at once a classic of music writing and a screenplay whose reputation lies firmly in the realm of great American literature. Greenbrg will read from and sign his book today. 2:30pm. ArtCenter/South Florida, 924 Lincoln Rd; Miami Beach. For info: booksandbooks.com
