wants and needs.

Sound of Love
The Golden Age gets revived with Max Raabe
& Palast Orchester. The dapper 12-piece
classically trained ensemble suits up to transport
viewers to the 1920s-30s, but with a modern
conveyance of hits like Oops..I Did It Again. Their
500-song repertoire is just one of the reasons
they’ve sold over a million albums;
Mar. 9 @ 8 p.m; $35-$95.
Laugh out Loud
Emmy-Award Winning Comedian & King Of
Late Night, Jay Leno, brings his speedy wit and
insatiable sarcasm to the Knight Center. Adults
might even learn a thing or two from his New
York Times best-selling children’s book How To
Be The Funniest Kid In The Whole Wide World (Or
Just In Your Class); Mar. 30 @ 8 p.m.; $55-125.
Miami has one of the most diverse theater
and performing arts scenes anywhere in
the country right now. The Adrienne Arsht
Center alone will host more than 500
performances this year. The multiplicity of
offerings on area stages can be daunting
at first, but fear not, here are a few
go-to rules that help me plot my cultural
outings into my iPhone. First, start with
the classics. Miami City Ballet and New
World Symphony both offer performances
for experienced arts lovers and newbies.
The former’s Open Barre program provides
behind-the-scenes fun, and the latter’s
20-minute Mini-Concert is high reward/
low commitment. Looking for a date night
destination? Catch both company’s full-
length shows at Arsht Center. Second, mix
in something new. Zoetic Stage is known
for new plays, and their latest, Clarke
Gable Slept Here, has its world premiere
this month. Gablestage, at the Biltmore
Hotel, brings hot new Off-Broadway titles
to a local stage. Third, get adventurous.
Catch a The Project [Theatre] show at
a local bar or pop into The Light Box at
Goldman Warehouse. Don’t be afraid to
get up, jump in and have a night you’ll be
bragging about for weeks.
