NEWMAN’S OWN According to Arnold Newman, “We do not take pictures with our cameras, but with our hearts and minds.” Newman put his heart and mind to very good use, creating iconographic portraits of some of the 20th and early 21st centuries’ most notable innovators, celebrities and cultural figures. His work reflected his fascination with people and with the physical world around them. “I do not claim that my way is the best or the only way,” he said. “It is simply my way. It is an expression of myself, of the way I think and feel.” The first major exhibition of the photographer’s work since his death in 2006 – Arnold N ewman: Masterclass – is on display at the Boca Raton Museum of Art until July 3. Through more than 200 photographs of his well-known sitters – including JFK, Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky and Marilyn Monroe – plus manuscripts, correspondence and business records, the exhibit examines the evolution of his singular vision, from the informal portraits, cityscapes, documentary images and design studies of his early career to the “environmental portraiture” style for which he would become famous.

Ariana Savalas

The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach is proving it’s not afraid of change. For the first time in the 15-year history of its renowned cabaret, the music will keep playing through the summer. Some things, however, will stay just the way they are. The Royal Room, considered by many to be among the most sophisticated cabaret rooms in the country, is known for presenting top-tier talent. Among those scheduled to appear this summer is Ariana Savalas, who probably picked up a few pointers on showmanship from her late father, actor Telly Savalas. A seductive chanteuse who captivates listeners with smooth vocals, quick wit and a downright saucy sense of humor, she’s sure to heat up summer nights on the island.

240 YEARS LATER

Palm Beach Dramaworks is staging a revolution. This summer, the West Palm Beach theater will present a reimagined production of 1776. SPOILER: the colonies still declare their independence. That won’t interfere with PBD’s plans to mount a nontraditional take on the Tony Award-winning musical, though. And, unlike the summer musicals presented in concert in past seasons, this will be a fully staged production. 1776 opens on Friday, July 1 – just in time for the holiday weekend – and runs through July 24. In an effort to introduce new audiences to live theater, PBD invites those age 18 to 40 to “Pay Your Age” for Sunday evening performances. “There is now so much entertainment available at the touch of a finger that it’s tough to lure people away from their screens,” says Sue Ellen Beryl, PBD managing director. “We believe strongly in the power of live theater, and we hope that these prices will be an inducement to get newcomers to experience the magic for themselves.”
