This exhibit will explore works from the artist’s Ukiyo-e (Pictures of the Floating World) series, which celebrates the high-fashion courtesans of Japan’s 18th and 19th century pleasure quarters. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

Robbins rapidly became the most exciting and innovative director-choreographer in the Broadway theatre, creating one unforgettable dance after another. “The Small House of Uncle Tom” in THE KING AND I, the rumble between the Sharks and the Jets in WEST SIDE STORY, “You’ve Got To Have a Gimmick” from GYPSY and the legendary bottle-dance from FIDDLER ON THE ROOF were all conceived and staged by one of the authentic geniuses of the American Musical Theater.

12-15, 19-22- Delray Beach Playhouse Presents “There's No Business Like Show Business” – 2pm & 8pm. $30. It is generally agreed that Irving Berlin is America’s greatest songwriter. George Gershwin called him “the greatest song writer that has ever lived!” And when asked about Berlin’s “place” in American music, Jerome Kern famously replied, “Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He IS American music!” Because he wrote both for Broadway and Hollywood for over fifty years, it’s impossible to honor his contribution to American music in a single program. So our first program on Irving Berlin will focus on his Broadway career which began in 1908. 561-272-1281 Ext. 4, delraybeachplayhouse.com
