 Lily James, Douglas Booth & Matt Smith talk ''Pride and Prejudice and Zombies''

“Pride and Prejudice” is one of those classic stories that is forever being adapted into a new show or movie, whether it’s the beloved five-hour BBC miniseries starring Colin Firth, the 2005 Kiera Knightley film, or modern interpretations such as “Austenland” or “Bridget Jones’ Diary.” But even with the countless works inspired by the story, it’s safe to say there has never been a film version quite like this. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” – yes, you read that correctly – is now in theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day, and it has all the elements and characters you fondly remember: A strong willed Elizabeth Bennett, an ill-tempered (but swoon worthy) Mr. Darcy, and brain-eating undead.

 M’Angaje Makes its World Premiere at the Arsht Center

As part of its 10th Anniversary Celebration, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County presented the world premiere of M’Angaje, a new piece created and performed by Haiti’s premier dance troupe Ayikodans. The piece was inspired by the Center’s ongoing alliance with the company which originated when they found a home at the Arsht Center following the devastating 2010 earthquake. On the night of the premiere, Ayikodans’ community of supporters in Miami gathered to toast to the magnificent new work on the steps of the Arsht Center’s plaza.

 The Book of Mormon @ Broward Center for the Performing Arts

For the easily offended, the word ‘blasphemous’ may very well apply to “The Book of Mormon.” For everyone else, it’s likely to be viewed as a welcome breath of fresh air – one that Miamians are very fortunate to have make its way to South Florida for the third time since 2013, this time at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale.

Written by “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, “The Book of Mormon” is very much the toe-tapping Broadway equivalent of the duo’s crass, long-running cartoon series. But instead of foul-mouthed Colorado grade-schoolers, Stone and Parker tackle a different sort of crowd: Mormons.
