The Short List

An A&E pocket guide for June



GLITZY CRAZY
6/5-10 The tannest man in show business, George Hamilton (right) leads the Tony Award-winning production, La Cage aux Folles, a musical full of sex, whimsy, heart and comedy, hitting the stage at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre.  http://orlando.broadway.com/

 


 

FINE PRINT
THROUGH 8/12 For two decades, UCF’s Flying Horse Press has been turning out stellar fine-art print creations. Now an exhibit at the Mennello Museum of American Art brings together the best from the press in prints, bookmaking and other objects, including the silkscreen “Bourbon’’ (above) by Ridley Howard.  http://www.mennellomuseum.com/special.html

 


 

ALL THINGS FRENCH
6/7 Pardon our French, but this month’s First Thursdays event at the Orlando Museum of Art promises to be a hell of a good time with Franco-themed art, food and fashion, plus a visit from master perfumer Christian Louis. http://www.omart.org/programs/1st-thursdays

 


 

BOY WONDERS
6/30 Orlando will once again be the home of the boy band phenomenon, but only for a night. British-Irish pop group One Direction, whose hit single “What Makes You Beautiful” was released by Simon Cowell’s record label, will no doubt pack the Amway Center with young girls who have to be home by 11. http://www.amwaycenter.com/

 


 

COMING UP...

UP TO SPEED
7/6-7/7 Celebrate Independence Day weekend NASCAR style with the Coke Zero 400, fireworks and a concert by Train. Bring the earplugs, sunscreen and beer money. http://www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com
