At South Florida PR firm Durée & Company, we have the honor of working with clients including small art venues celebrating the diversity of our community. One of these esteemed clients is Broward College.
With its Overheard Series, Broward College’s South Campus Office of Cultural Affairs (BSOCA) continues its tradition of staging one-person shows covering a taboo range of topics from gender roles, sexuality, race and religion. Featuring a different performer for a one-night only performance each month, the Series has two more appearances left before the stage lights dim for the summer.
On Friday, March 27 at 7 p.m., Carlo D’Amore will take to the stage for “No Parole.” During this energetic show, Carlo tells the off-beat story of his flamboyant life with his con artist mother. From Peru to the streets of New York, “No Parole” is a globetrotting adventure that provides a hilarious and gut-wrenching look into the life of an extraordinary woman and the son who must save her from herself. Admission is $10.
On Friday, April 24 at 8 p.m., Sylvia Milo will perform “The ♀ther Mozart,” a play about Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus. It tells the true story of this prodigy, a keyboard virtuoso and composer, who as a child toured through all of Europe performing with her brother, to equal acclaim, but who faded away and left behind nothing of her own. The show is set in, on and underneath its costume: a stunning dress some 18 feet in diameter, which spills over the entire stage. Admission is $15.
Both performances will take place at the Performing Cultural Arts Theatre located at Broward College South Campus, 7200 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines. Please visit bsoca.org for more information.
