I Now Pronounce You, Free at Last

Divorce is generally a sad and messy business, so much so that it’s easy to forget that the finalizing of a divorce also means the end of an unhappy situation. Divorce Party the Musical is returning to the Kravis Center to help remind audiences of this very salient and cathartic fact. Flip-Her Productions presents the story of recent divorcée Linda, who, with the help of Chubby Hubby ice cream and some very devoted friends, learns to put the pain of the past behind her and embrace a wide-open future — all set to music, of course. The previous run earlier this year sold out, and much of the same cast has returned, so get your tickets early, but leave the kiddies at home — the subject matter and language leans toward adults only. The six-week run opens tonight and runs until August 19, with showtimes at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tickets start at $25, and there are special group (and girls’ night out) rates available. They can purchased online, by phone, or at the box office. The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-7469 or 800-572-8471, or visit kravis.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 1:30 & 7:30 p.m. Starts: July 10. Continues through Aug. 19, 2012
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
