October 21 to November 10- Hot Shoe Shuffle-Smash Jukebox Musical Opens Sparkling Season 7 at The Wick Theatre – Are you ready to ‘cut a rug’? The Wick Theatre opens their seventh season with the Australian and West End smash hit, Hot Shoe Shuffle. This award-winning production features a cast of dynamic dancers tapping and singing their way through the biggest hits from the American Big Band era performed by a 10-piece live band.  Hot Shoe Shuffle is the ultimate in razzle dazzle tap! In 1992, the musical created by David Atkins tapped its way onto the stage in Sydney, Australia and became an instant success. The popularity of the show inspired a London production that resulted in a Olivier Award for best choreography and a nomination for Best Musical Production. The Wick’s director, Jonathan Van Dyke, is working with choreographer Justin M. Lewis on the production. Van Dyke was a featured performer on America’s Got Talent at Radio City Music Hall, as well as a co-creator of Tell-a-Vision, a technology and dance-based performance group. Van Dyke and Lewis have assembled an extraordinary cast with enormous energy and style. The musical concerns seven Tap Brothers, Spring, Slap, Buck, Wing, Tip, Tap and Slide, who learn of the death of their long-absent father. To claim their large inheritance, the brothers must rehearse and perform their Dad’s legendary act—the Hot Shoe Shuffle and include their long-lost sister! The Wick Theatre is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway. Boca Raton, FL 33487  The show runs October 17-November 10, 2019; matinees at 2pm, evenings at 7:30pm. Tickets are $75-$85 at www.thewick.org or call 561-995-2333.

In When All That’s Left is Love, director Eric Gordon has returned to live with his parents so that he can relieve his aging mother, Marilyn, of the sole care for his Alzheimer’s-afflicted father, Shelly. Eric joins his mother in caregiving, even as he captures unprecedented footage of the progression of his father’s illness and his mother’s increasing inability to cope. This documentary uniquely presents the difficult inside story of the caregivers’ journey, as viewed by a son. The film focuses on Marilyn Gordon and a neighbor, Arline Rothman, as they struggle to care at home for spouses who are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Through their experiences, we learn about the lives of caregivers. Individuals who are courageous and worthy, yet utterly human, who—out of love—have taken on the most overwhelming role of their lives.
