You won’t have to make a pilgrimage to New York this holiday season to get your fix of theatrical glitz.
For the first time ever, the girls with the gams are headed to the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts as they kick off their most iconic show, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Starring the Rockettes, running through December 8.
Known for their precision dancing and perfectly timed choreography, the Rockettes have delighted audiences – 73 million fans – for more than eight decades. For many theater-goers, it’s a family tradition, signaling the start of the holiday season.
This year, the show has amped up the action with a few new tricks. There will be some dazzling new costumes with their signature over-the-top beading, faux fur, feathers and so much crystal the chandeliers will weep with envy. Swarovski would do a double take as the Rockettes take the stage absolutely shimming in sheer bling, each wearing costumes that are embroidered with more than 3,000 crystals. More…
Inside the Law Offices of Nugent, Zborowski & Bruce, Indiana native Adam M. Zborowski’s eyes continuously travel a well-worn route between the files on his desk and the computer screen before him, his hands joining in to turn pages or type on the keyboard. An efficient demeanor – rooted in a Midwestern work ethic that values skill and competence and eschews sizzle for steak – belies attorney Zborowski’s zeal for marital and family law.
“I took a domestic violence practicum in law school and developed a passion for helping out domestic violence victims. It was a trial practice clinic,” he explained.
After graduating from Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama, he geared his job search toward a family law career. Continuing his southern migration from Indiana, he joined Nugent, Zborowski & Bruce – the North Palm Beach firm where he is now a partner – as an associate in 2007.
Founded by Matthew S. Nugent, a Florida Bar board-certified marital and family law lawyer, the attorneys at Nugent, Zborowski & Bruce restrict their practice to divorce, family law, custody issues, paternity, prenuptial, child support, visitation, marital settlement agreements and mediation. The boutique law firm’s devotion to these areas redounds to the benefits of its clients. More…

There’s something to be said for the power of youth, especially in the form of a chorus. It’s one thing to join a choral program while in high school and sing to high (local) praises. It’s quite another to be recognized on a national level and to be invited to sing at Lincoln Center in New York City. The impossible dream? Hardly. This is exactly what the Wellington High School Chorus will be doing next spring.
Under the tutelage of chorus director Bradford Chase, the Wellington High School Chorus are already seasoned veterans when it comes to taking the stage in the Big Apple, having performed at Carnegie Hall three years ago. Now, 53 of 75-strong members will be participating in the New York City premiere performance of Rosephanye Powell’s The Cry of Jeremiah as part of the DCINY Concert Series at 7p.m. on Saturday, May 10, 2014 (Mother’s Day Weekend) at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. They are the only high school choral group to be invited and they will perform with singers on the collegiate level from all over the country. A total of nearly 250 performers will share the stage, but the Wellington High School Chorus will be the youngest star to shine. More…

I go to college in a true “college town,” where bars line the road across and down from campus, and where every Saturday in the fall is reserved for football. Most days it’s hard to get around campus via car because there’s usually little to no parking, and most speed limits aren’t above 35 miles per hour.
And that’s why a large portion of my university’s population owns a Vespa.
For future college attendees (or anybody, for that matter), Vespa has introduced the brand-new Vespa 946, “the most well-equipped, styled/technologically advanced Vespa ever.” However, there are only a limited number of 946s produced annually for each country, but every year there will be a new scooter with different colors and accessories than the one before.
When Gordon Cadwgan Jr. steps to the microphone to explain Antitrypsin Deficiency, also known as Alpha-1, he cloaks himself in a clinician’s detached and scientific demeanor, sounding every bit like the Ph.D. in analytical chemistry that defined his distinguished career at DuPont. Ask him how he’s doing in a private conversation, away from the crowd, and he’ll tell you very colloquially, “I’m still here.”
At a breakfast gathering at Ibis Country Club, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio presented a proclamation to Cadwgan, declaring that November would be Alpha-1 Awareness Month. She recognized Cadwgan, chair of the board of directors of the Alpha-1 Foundation, for his tireless work on behalf of the foundation and those afflicted with the genetic disease.
Alphas, as those with the disease identify themselves, are deficient in a protein produced in the liver that protects the lung. Symptoms of the disease include, but are not limited to: shortness of breath, wheezing, chronic cough, jaundice and liver disease. Because Alpha-1 mimics the symptoms of COPD and other chronic diseases, it is often an overlooked diagnosis. “In fact, it is common wisdom that it takes five years and seven doctors to diagnose Alpha-1,” said Cadwgan, who was diagnosed with the protein deficiency in 1992.

Tommy Tune, a native Texan, began his career as a dancer in the Broadway shows Baker Street and Joyful Noise. Tune went on to a principal role in Seesaw before receiving his debut Broadway credits on the original production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
Tune has since become one of the most well-known directors and choreographers of our time, receiving nine Tony Awards which spanned across several categories (performer, director and choreographer). Additionally, Tune has won eight Drama Desk Awards, three Astaire Awards and the Society of Directors and Choreographers Lifetime Achievement Award.
Tune will be joining an all-star list of newcomers to the Royal Room at The Colony Hotel this holiday season, performing “Taps, Tunes and Tall Tales.” This show starring the prolific artist – which includes song, dance and stories of Tune’s time as a performer, director and choreographer – is tailored to smaller audiences.
