Director Dom Ruggiero understands that the show retains its potency as long as we accept its unabashed optimism and heart-on-its-sleeve belief in the power of delusion. I love to sing jazz and cabaret. With your help we can have the relaxing, romantic, fun, adventurous, most incredible honeymoon we've always dreamed of. Loomis has also agreed to raise any children the couple plan to have as Jewish.
She is extremely aggressive and confrontational, very hard on the outside. She moved back to the area in December, buying a permanent home in — as with her track record of doing so much regional theater in South Florida, she figures she will do at least a show or two a year here for the foreseeable future. Alix knew then she had to talk to this guy. Raymond Jungles, a renowned Miami Landscape Architect known for his natural lush landscapes, designed the award-winning garden spaces throughout the property. She has sung with the world-renowned jazz pianist Shelly Berg and the up-and-coming star pianist Daniel C.

Aldonza is so strong and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything.
Strange, in a concert for Angela Lansbury. This transformation brings to life and reinforces the vision of writer Dale Wasserman, composer Mitch Leigh and lyricist Joe Darion that beauty and goodness are as simple as how you choose to look at the world.

Born 27 years ago today into a family of lawyers, Hyman, who performs under the name Alix Paige, is a singer who can belt out Broadway tunes and capture the emotional turmoil of a tragic heroine.
David Colbert was the capable hand on lights and sound. Still, she was no Edith Piaf. She can reach down and pull out that emotion. As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. I always had an admiration for the many Jewish people in musical theater and the entertainment business.

Even at her relatively tender age, Alix Paige has encountered many different men in her life and has experienced love in all its forms. She faces, and accepts, beatings, rape and abuse as a matter of course. And having her in rehearsal, I see how fearless she is.
