Alper JCC Berrin Family Jewish Book Festival Presents Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel In conversation with Christine Dolan, Artburst Theater Critic | Includes refreshments Sunday, February 10, 2019 4pm at the Alper JCC 11155 SW 112 Avenue • Robert Russell Theater Admission packages: Student $10 (no book) | Student $20 (with book) | 1 Adult (with book) $30 | 2 Adults (one book) $40
The Tony Award-winning co-creator of Dear Evan Hansen, Broadway’s 2017 Best Musical, presents his groundbreaking novel inspired by the show. A letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief, and he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. Every day is amazing until everything is in danger of unraveling. A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation. Show Tunes performed by Miami Children’s Theater

WHAT "THE MAMBONIKS," a new film about the Jewish love of Latin music and dance, will make its world premiere at the Miami Film Festival. Directed by Peabody Award-winning producer Lex Gillespie, the movie was filmed in South Florida and features many local residents in starring roles.
WHEN March 3, 2019, at 3PM
WHERE The Coral Gables Art Cinema, 260 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134, 786.385.9689
TICKETS HERE https://2019.miamifilmfestival.com/films/mamboniks/
ABOUT THE FILM Bagels meet bongos in THE MAMBONIKS, a 90-minute documentary that tells the little-known story of the Jewish love affair with Latin music. Set in New York, Havana, Miami Beach, and the Catskill Mountains, this uplifting film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the 1950s. Now retired yet still dancing in Florida, they share their passion for the mambo, the hot dance from Cuba that became a world-wide sensation. With an infectious soundtrack including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and mambo king Pérez Prado, this film explores a mostly unexamined aspect of Jewish life and culture.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
This musical theatre adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea,” tells the story of a prince in search of a true princess. “Once Upon A Mattress” begins in a faraway kingdom long ago, where due to an unhappy curse, the King is unable to speak. Meanwhile, his terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. Most importantly, in an attempt to keep Prince Dauntless single, she has decreed that only the princess that can pass her test may marry her son. Further, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does.
Luckily, Sir Harry is able to find an amazing princess, Winnifred the Woebegone. She instantly catches the attention of Prince Dauntless, and in the end, is able to pass the Queen's supposedly impassable sensitivity test. When the Queen still tries to prevent Prince Dauntless from marrying, he ends up standing up to her, which ends up breaking the curse on the King. Now able to speak, the King regains his rightful position as leader of the kingdom, and all is well.
Hans Christian Andersen wrote more than 150 fairy tales including “The Little Mermaid,” “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Ugly Duckling,” “Thumbelina” and “The Snow Queen.” More than 120 years after the publication of “The Princess and the Pea,” Mary Rodgers, Marshall Barer and Jay Thompson adapted “The Princess and the Pea” to musical theatre in 1958.
