George and Ira Gershwin first saw Gertrude Lawrence in 1924 and immediately wrote a show for her called OH, KAY! in which she introduced the Gershwin masterpiece “Someone to Watch Over Me.” During the next four decades, the Gershwin’s, Cole Porter, Noel Coward and Rodgers and Hammerstein all wrote significant scores for her (including LADY IN THE DARK and THE KING AND I) in which she introduced songs like “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” “My Ship,” “Hello, Young Lovers” and “Someday I’ll Find You.”  561-272-1281 Ext. 4, delraybeachplayhouse.com

Exhibits:

1 - May 8th- Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in a Modern World - Curated by Takahiro Kitamura, photographed and designed by Kip Fulbeck, and organized for tour by the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, California. Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. This exhibition explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos along with its rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices. Perseverance underscores Japanese tattooing as an art form by acknowledging its roots in ukiyo-e prints and examining current practices and offshoots of Japanese tattooing in the U.S. and Japan. As Japanese tattoos have moved into the mainstream, the artistry and legacy of Japanese tattooing remain both enigmatic and misunderstood. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

30 & 31 - Delray Beach Playhouse Presents “I've Heard That Song Befre” – 2pm & 8pm. $30. When a revue of Fats Waller songs called AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ opened on Broadway in 1978, some critics complained that it was deceptive to call such a show a “Broadway Musical” since it didn’t sport a book or any original songs. They complained that it was just an old-fashioned revue masquerading as a Broadway show and dismissed it as a “Jukebox Musical.” But audiences loved AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ and it was soon followed by a succession of revues featuring the songs of other songwriters, from Duke Ellington and Johnny Mercer to rock-’n-roll legends like Leiber and Stoller. Today “Jukebox Musicals” are not only respected, they are among the most popular shows on Broadway, from THE JERSEY BOYS and MAMMA MIA! to BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROL KING MUSICAL. In this program, Broadway celebrates the “Hit Parade!”  561-272-1281 Ext. 4, delraybeachplayhouse.com
