An A&E pocket guide for July

Miguel Esteban

7/12-8/3 More than 100 years after playwright William Inge’s birth, seasoned local actors are breathing fresh life into his 1955 character-driven play, Bus Stop.  Jamie-Lyn Markos (shown) tackles the Marilyn Monroe role—an aspiring singer named Cherie. She and four other travelers are stranded in a small Midwestern diner when a freak snowstorm delays their bus. Friendships develop, tempers flare and unlikely romances blossom.  At Theatre Downtown.

Cedric the Entertainer, the stand-up comedian, actor and director best-known for The Steve Harvey Show and Spike Lee’s film The Original Kings of Comedy, brings his comedic take on culture and race relations to the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre.
Through 8/11 Who knew Shamu could rock ’n’ roll? During Summer Nights, SeaWorld’s top-billing killer whale performs in a dazzling, high-energy show with music, lights and multimedia effects. Other must-sees include a comedic sea lion and otter duo, and a special fireworks show.
Forget the summer heat—get cool like the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies. At this month’s free Popcorn Flicks in the Park event, bring a blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy the highest-grossing movie musical of all time in Winter Park’s Central Park.
8/1 Get up close and personal with favorite Idol contestants at the Amway Center. The American Idol Live! tour showcases the Season 12 finalists with a lively mix of top musical moments from the competition and new, never-before-seen performances.
The famed Vans Warped Tour makes its Orlando stop at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. This touring music and extreme sports festival features some of the biggest names in rock, punk and pop music, including local favorite Beebs (shown) and Her Money Makers, along with food and fun in an open-air environment.
