Spotlight: Theatre, Otronicon, and Drag Race Star Aja


Erotic desire, romance, magic and tragedy are mixed to give life to this theatrical satire from Federico García Lorca called Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su jardín. This play runs at Mad Cow Theatre all weekend long. Now I beg of you, before you buy your ticket, ask the salesperson if the actors in the show have been paid on time. They will be shocked at your question. But that theatre has a publicly known reputation for not paying their actors on time and if you want to support live theatre you want to support those organizations that treat their actors with respect. Otherwise, go see a movie. For more information go to madcowtheatre.com. Orlando Science Center is bringing back …

Spiffy Saturdays, Science Center, Latin Fest and Celebrity Impersonators


Ok there’s a day where 20-somethings dress up in retro inspired clothing and walk around the Disney parks…sweating. It’s called Dapper Day. It’s gone on for years. Today I read that Universal fans are going to do the same thing called “Spiffy Saturdays”. Folks are meeting at the globe at 10 on Saturday then marching around in bobby socks and ill-fitting cardigans all day. For info search for “Spiffy Saturday” on Facebook. The first Saturday and Sunday of every month Bank of America and Merrill Lynch cardholders get free admission to Orlando Science Center. The deal applies to the cardholder only and does not include guests. So don’t even try it. There’s a Latin festival with music, entertainment, food, raffles …
