Little People in South Florida
Yes, its true that J.R.R. Tolkiens epic literary work, The Lord of the Rings, was concocted from some crazy part of his brain in the early 30s. But, in some opium-fused haze, he pulled a Nostradamus and actually predicated what South Florida would be today. Take the hobbits for example, little people who live in a community of small holes (AKA condos) and enjoy eating breakfast and second breakfast (early-bird dinners) and spend time singing about the past and playing village games (bingo night, anyone?). So in some ways, South Florida really has become the Shire of our Middle-Earth. Find more of Tolkiens predictions for the Sunshine State at 8 p.m. Friday for Brainerd Duffields adaptation of The Hobbit at the Atlantic Theater (6743 W. Indiantown Road, Ste. 34, Jupiter). Additional showtimes are at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets cost $15 to $18. Call 561-575-4942, or visit theatlantictheater.com.
