Entertainment is an escape, as well as a vehicle for enlightenment and education. It can be light and fun or heavy and intense. We may leave a theater reciting the funniest lines or remain sitting in the dark for ten minutes trying to digest what just hit us. The drama and humor bring us together, but impact us each in different ways. This issue of Bay covers some of Tampa Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best entertainment options and a few of the people involved in the business. The fashion spread shot at Tampa Theatre features current clothing echoing screen and stage couture of the past. When our model posed in the gorgeous floral jacquard jacket reminiscent of M. Butterfly, I thought back to the summer I saw the play when it opened on Broadway in 1988. I went to New York City to visit a friend. Two roommates and I spent a whole day traveling by ferry, plane and bus to get there. When the shuttle from the airport arrived at Grand Central
Station, it was pouring rain. Fortunately a nice man with the cab company met us with an umbrella the moment our feet hit the pavement. He asked where we were going and calculated it would cost $20 per person for his partner driving the cab to take us to our hotel a few blocks a way. That sounded fair to us novices, so we happily handed him $60 and he motioned for the cab to pull over. When we arrived at the Sheraton Midtown our cab driver informed us we owed him $14 total for the fare. He had no connection with the man who hailed the cab. We were taken for $60 before spending even 60 seconds in the Big Apple. That night at M. Butterfly, more surprises awaited. I must have been the only person on Broadway â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or perhaps the East Coast â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the plot. When the beautiful opera singer stripped down to nothing, I was even more shocked than her lover of 20 years to realize she was a he. Perhaps it was best I was taken

fully by surprise, because the play has remained one of my favorites. It won the Tony for best play that year, and I took pride having been in one of the early audiences. Many Tampa Bay residents will take pride when they are among the lucky audiences for Hamilton at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts Feb. 12 through March 10. Season tickets that guaranteed admission to Hamilton are sold out. The Straz will sell individual tickets closer to the time of the show. Our fashion spread also salutes this musical that brought Broadway, rap and the founding of America to the masses. A story about how Tampa Theatre plans its offerings points out that it’s usually the first — and often the only local location — to screen the less mainstream movies that end up winning major awards. It’s also the place where movie fans go for the classics like Casablanca in the summer, Ghostbusters in October and It’s a Wonderful Life in December. Area residents have been making memories there since 1926. Entertainment, of course, encompasses much more than stage and screen. In this issue, Tampa Bay Times

TIMES THREE BY MAGGIE DUFFY
ebruary doesn’t have the monopoly on love. Three fall exhibitions at the Tampa Museum of Art prove just that. Yayoi Kusama’s popular Infinity Mirror room Love is Calling is on loan from the Vinik Family Foundation. The work of contemporary artist Robert Indiana, the creator of hundreds of iconic LOVE sculptures around the world, also is featured. And, Brooklyn sculptor Patricia Cronin has taken inspiration from a first-century fragmentary torso of Aphrodite in the museum’s permanent collection to create a new 10-foot-tall sculpture. Love is Calling, which will be on display through Feb. 14, incorporates soft sculptures on the ceiling and floor, filled with changing colored lights in a mirrored room. Audio of Kusama reciting a love poem in Japanese will play.

Through their foundation, Penny and Jeff Vinik own Kusama’s mirrored room, which has been in storage. After the exhibit at the Tampa Museum of Art, they plan to install it at Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik’s $3-billion Water Street Tampa project, a mixed-use hub for residences, office space, hotels, retail and entertainment. “We liked it because it’s very colorful and is also one of her largest rooms,” Penny Vinik said. “It can accommodate eight or nine people, where most of the rooms can only hold one or two. It’s also the only one that includes her voice, which is a cool component.” If Kusama’s name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, it’s likely you’ve seen her work on social media. Active since the 1950s, the 89-year-old artist creates colorful sculptures and installations, usually adorned with her trademark polka dots, which she’s also prone to wear. Some of her infinity rooms integrate her sculptures, while lights and water used in others give the illusion of being suspended in outer space. They are highly selfieworthy, which has helped catapult Kusama back into the public eye. Last year, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., held a 50-year retrospective, “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors,” which included six of her rooms. The exhibition, which now travels to other museums around the country, has been so wildly successful that it has broken attendance records and was included among W magazine’s Most Instagram-able Art of 2017. Also in 2017, the Yayoi Kusama Museum opened in Tokyo. How does one come to own such an installation? The Viniks saw Love is Calling at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in 2016. It was available for sale, so they purchased it, with the plan to exhibit it in Tampa. “There’s a lot of specific requirements that we felt would be best dealt with through a museum,” Penny Vinik explained. “You have security, ticketing and long lines.”
The museum has dubbed its spectrum of offerings “Season of Love.” Perhaps the most iconic artistic interpretation of love is Indiana’s famous LOVE sculpture series, included in the final exhibition of the fall season, “Robert Indiana: A Sculpture Retrospective,” Oct. 25 through March 17. Organized by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, N.Y., the exhibition was in celebration of Indiana’s 90th birthday. Sadly, Indiana passed away this past May. The Tampa Museum of Art is the exhibit’s only other venue. Some never-before-shown pieces from the LOVE sculpture series will be on display, along with his earliest assemblages from the 1950s and his most recent series of painted bronzes.

The season opened on Aug. 16 with “Patricia Cronin, Aphrodite, and the Lure of Antiquity: Conversations with the Collection.” It’s the brainchild of Seth Pevnick, chief curator and Richard E. Perry curator of Greek and Roman art, and Joanna Robotham, curator of modern and contemporary art. The museum commissioned Cronin to interpret one of the ancient objects from the permanent collection. Cronin chose the fragmentary torso of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, which she has recreated as a complete 10-foot-tall sculpture with a stone torso and translucent arms, legs and head made of a glass-like resin. Aphrodite Reimagined is perched on the museum’s second-floor terrace, lovingly gazing out over the Hillsborough River. The exhibit also includes Cronin’s funerary sculpture, Memorial to a Marriage. Presented in a neoclassical style, the 2003 sculpture portrays Cronin and her now-wife cradled in each other’s arms. At a time when gay marriage was still illegal and in the scope of history of monuments, it was quite revolutionary. Asking artists to create works in response to ancient objects is a way to bridge the gap between the museum’s collection of ancient art and contemporary art, which Pevnick and Robotham hope will become a series. “We’re not an encyclopedic museum, which presents an interesting juxtaposition often, between works of art that were created many centuries ago and works that were created recently,” Pevnick said. “Sometimes those relate to each other pretty clearly and other times they don’t, so one of our challenges is to try make these connections.”

There’s no other word but “bustling” to describe the scene in an area that was desolate for decades when businesses closed or moved after trains quit running on the tracks that dissect it. Now the area, bounded by First Avenue N, Tenth Ave. S, 16th Street and 31st Street, has critical mass. It’s a thriving arts mecca that draws people of all ages, incomes and disciplines to create, buy and explore.
22nd St. S
n a recent Second Saturday Art Walk in St. Petersburg’s Warehouse Arts District, pockets of people crowded the sides of the streets that wind between buildings. They were headed toward glass masterpieces made by Duncan McClellan and others at his studio, to browse works by more local artists at Arts Xchange or to a potpourri of painting styles of various artists who are on hand to discuss their work at Dazzio Art Society Gallery & School of Art .

“Our gallery is now home to a rotating art show each month and various events,” said Diane Bailey Morton, executive director of the Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA), the nonprofit that owns and operates Arts Xchange and other parts of the district. “We hosted a national book launch for a children’s book, Cafe Con Tampa (and a) Business and Professional Women’s Equal Pay Day event. In the late 2000s, artists such as McClellan, potter Charlie Parker and sculptor Mark Aeling started turning the empty warehouses into studios and galleries. In 2014, the nonprofit WADA bought six buildings on 3 acres for $975,000, with plans to create affordable space for artists. Arts Xchange, the first phase of the endeavor, opened late last year in the former Soft Water Laundry. Originally built in 1930, the laundry cleaned linens from area resorts that arrived dirty and left clean via train. Now it houses 29 individual studios for artists and 2,500 square feet of flexible space for galleries, education and events. “Wecontinuetohavearts-educationclassesinboththe galleryandsecond-floorclassroom.Weteachmanycourses onthebusinessaspectsofarttoourmembersforfreeandto thepublicforasmallfee,”BaileyMortonexplained. Along with the common space for community events, there are 10 studios on the second floor and 19 on the first. Heavy wooden doors slide open to reveal bright spaces, some with sinks, where artists concentrate on a variety of disciplines, including painting, sculpting, metalwork, jewelry-making and photography. “This enables me to work on two or three projects at a time,” said Annemarie Masson, who paints on large canvases in oil and acrylics. “Before (in her home), I could only do one at a time.” At 450 square feet, hers is one of the larger studios in the Arts Xchange. Along with having a designated space to work, Masson also likes having other artists around her. Laura Flavin, a metalsmith who works in sterling silver and gold, and her husband John Flavin, who uses oil, charcoal and graphite in his drawing and painting, have separate studios but regularly meet for breaks and conversing. Before they worked in their house in a cramped second bedroom.

Metalsmith Laura Flavin is one of the artists who work in the Warehouse Arts District studios. Below, some pieces by Flavin, waiting to be made into jewelry.
Carrie Smith, another artist at Arts Xchange, said the complex offers a very important asset she can’t get when working at her studio at home. “There’s foot traffic here,” said the painter. “The Second Saturday ArtWalk is so ingrained in this community.” A free trolley travels to more than 40 galleries from the waterfront to the Warehouse Arts District when doors stay open until 9 p.m. for ArtWalk. The Arts Xchange is now a popular destination because visitors can see so many artists at once, as well as stroll through their studios. Tracy Kennard, director of operations for WADA, pointed out that the nonprofit ownership of the studios enables artists, who pay $1 per square foot, to feel secure. “We’re not going to get bought out. We’re not going to raise the rent,” she said. More than 400 artists hoping for a vacancy are on a waiting list. The nonprofit plans more studios in its third phase in a few years, but first will start on the second phase it just announced.

“We will rehabilitate another 2,400-square-foot warehouse to be an arts education center. It will contain a professional dance studio with three classrooms,” Bailey Morton said. “We will be celebrating the art of movement and include traditional dance for children and adults as well as senior yoga, tai chi and other wellness initiatives. The classrooms will be for arts education. One will be a reading room of art books for all ages.” The nonprofit owns just a portion of the structures in the district, which includes businesses unrelated to the arts. “We have diverse manufacturing businesses as well as distilleries, coffee roasters, breweries,” Bailey Morton said. A restaurant or cafe would be a welcomed addition to complement the art scene and nearby 3 Daughters Brewing. The Deuces Live business district is minutes away and there are efforts to jointly attract visitors. Located on the Pinellas Trail, the district is a good ending point for a bike ride, especially on the second Saturday of the month. Riverside Trolley Barn, an oil on canvas, by Flavin.

Whether the scene is a Cabinet meeting of the 1770s in Hamilton or the runways of Rome in the 1970s in Mahogany, costuming is vital to transporting the audience. Though wardrobes are designed for a specific character and era, some of them are timeless and resonate with the masses. This issue’s fashion spread photographed at Tampa Theatre features current clothing that echoes some of our favorite looks from stage and film. “I’m not much on rear window ethics.” It was Grace Kelly who said this and did the dangerous work when her photographer boyfriend, Jimmy Stewart, was confined to his Greenwich Village apartment with a broken leg. In Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, they watched neighbors in the apartment behind Stewart’s and came to suspect a man of murdering his wife. Kelly snuck into the could-be culprit’s apartment to plant an accusatory note, explore the contents of his missing wife’s handbag and dig in the garden looking for body parts. For most of her gutsy detective work, she wore elegant dresses created by acclaimed costume designer Edith Head.

“I HAD A FARM IN AFRICA.” Those six words by Meryl Streep introduced a love story so beautiful it could be eclipsed only by the African savanna where it took place. In Out of Africa, Streep portrays a Dutch baroness who leaves the refined life for Kenya in the early 1900s. There she grows coffee, starts a school and meets Robert Redford, an American who calls Africa home. The 1985 movie won seven Oscars, including best picture and best director. The leading actors were dressed mostly in khaki and shades of white that always seemed cool and crisp — even when lions were poised to attack and passions ran high.

Hamilton, the musical that brought Broadway back to the masses, lured theatergoers from around the globe, with some paying upward of $10,000 a ticket. Lin-Manuel Miranda combined pop, hip-hop and the founding of America to create the most talked-about musical in ages. A touring version of Broadway’s hottest musical is coming to the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts Feb. 12 through March 10. Season tickets have sold out. Individual tickets are expected to go on sale closer to the show date. Our Hamilton-esque model is seated on Tampa Theatre’s famous organ, which rises up from the floor of the stage. The 1,400-pipe instrument, known as the Mighty Wurlitzer, was sold to Bayshore Baptist church in the early 1930s as “talkies” emerged. In the 1980s, the theater bought it back.

“The days I spent with you were the only days that ever truly existed.” Opera singer Song Liling spoke these words to French diplomat Rene Gallimard in M. Butterfly, but are they true? The married man living in China in the mid1960s became entranced with Song when he saw her perform in Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. During his 20 years with the modest beauty, who never let him see her unclothed, he experienced love he never knew. When she finally shares her secret, his world crashes. M. Butterfly won the Tony for best play when it debuted on Broadway in 1988 starring John Lithgow and B.D. Wong. The 1993 movie with Jeremy Irons and John Lone wasn’t as much of a success.

“ME, MAHOGANY!” These are the words an impassioned Diana Ross said to Billy Dee Williams in the 1975 movie Mahogany. Ross is a fashion designer who rises from the Chicago projects to the runways of Europe, where she becomes a modeling sensation known as Mahogany. As her career peaks, she accuses Williams, a community activist, of resenting her success. He, in his trademark suave drawl, reminds her: “Success is nothing without someone you love to share it with.” Ross’ wardrobe ranged from elegant to over-the-top haute couture worthy of the Met Gala.

LET’S ALL GO TO THE
BY KATHERINE SNOW SMITH
ince airing itsfirstmovie,Aceof Cads,in 1926,Tampa Theatre has wowed moviegoers with its intricate details and beautiful flourishes. Before the curtains even parted for that silent picture, guests were transported to a Mediterranean courtyard under a starry sky in the elegant theater created by famed architect John Eberson. A recently completed $6-million renovation managed to enhance Tampa’s gem (wider seats have cupholders), while staying true to its historical significance. Staci Barton gave the new look high marks as she left a recent showing of The Miseducation of Cameron Post. “You notice something different every time you come here,” she said. “It always is a special experience.” Her parents’ first date was at the historic theater in 1968. They saw Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen and Jacqueline Bisset. Barton can remember coming to see The Nutcracker on field trips when she was in elementary school. “Tampa Theatre is magic to a lot of people. They have memories of coming there as kids with their parents and grandparents,” said Jill Witecki, the director of marketing. “We have been in the same place doing the same thing for 92 years. There are many positive memories, and this feeling of ownership in the community — that this is something unique to Tampa that all of us, in some way, are in charge of protecting.” Photograph by Skip O’Rourke
The remodeled theater has roomier seats but still looks vintage.
Tampa Bay residents equate the Tampa Theatre with the classics. It’s the first place kids watch Gone With The Wind or Casablanca. It offers a chance for slightly older generations to see All the President’s Men or One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest on the big screen. Some make a holiday tradition out of going to It’s a Wonderful Life every December. But of the 520 to 550 screenings a year, only 50 of those are classics. “We hesitate to say we show ‘art house’ movies, because people think those are those weird foreign movies that no one wants to see,” Witecki said. “But typically, more and more, these are the movies you see getting a lot of buzz around Oscar season.” Tampa Theatre was either the first or only screen in town showing such award winners as The Shape of Water, Boyhood, The Artist, The King’s Speech and Dallas Buyers Club. Opening night of the Won’t You Be My Neighbor documentary on Fred Rogers sold out. It was held over three weeks longer than planned because of its popularity. A California movie booker picks most of the first-run

movies shown at the theater. Jan Klingelhofer is the “air traffic controller” for about a half-dozen theaters around the country, according to Witecki. She goes to film festivals and researches what’s coming out, then surmises what will go over well in Tampa Bay. Klingelhofer gets paid by taking a percentage of what the movies make, so she has a strong incentive to pick films that will sell tickets. As for the classics, the Tampa Theatre’s team of a dozen full-time employees determine most of those. Every year they offer variety and a few perennials for the Summer Classic Movies Series, Rewind cult favorites on Friday nights, family films in the spring and scary features for the Nightmare on Franklin Street series in October. “Then we give our wish list to Jan and she chases down who has the rights to them,” Witecki explained. “You can’t just turn on Netflix and sell tickets.” The studio, entity or individual who owns the rights usually asks for a guaranteed fee or a percentage of the ticket sales, whichever one is more. The percentage ranges from 25 to 50 percent.
For the Halloween series, it can be a challenge to find out who has the rights to cult classics such as The Brides Wore Blood. “Sometimes it’s an individual who has an inflated sense of what the movie is worth and we pick something else,” Witecki laughed. On occasion, the rights-holder will pull a movie from distribution for a year or so to make it more scarce before a landmark anniversary. This happened a few years back with Casablanca and it wasn’t available for the Summer Classic Movie Series. The classics bring in bigger audiences per show at the 1,260-seat theater because they aren’t aired for as many days, but first-run movies generate more revenue. The dozen or so live concerts the theater hosts each year sell out more often than movies. In 2017, Tampa Theatre operated on $2.1 million. It made 42 percent of that from admissions and fees, 18 percent from concessions and 9 percent from renting the facility for weddings and other events. The remaining 31 percent, or $653,262, came from contributions. The majority of that was through individual donations, followed by funds from the city of Tampa, the state and Hillsborough County. The one-screen theater went from being a struggling for-profit business to a not-for-profit entity in 1977. Prior to that, it was close to being demolished. The city of Tampa saveditbybuyingthebuildingfor$1andturningoperations over to the Hillsborough County Arts Council. In 2010, management was handed to the Tampa Theatre Foundation. Projectionist Foster “Fink” Finley started in 1965 and remained through many changes until he collapsed at the theater in 1995 and later died of a heart attack. “All of the projectionists we’ve had since then say they think Fink is still coming to work six days a week,” Witecki laughed. Lights go on and off when they shouldn’t. They feel a tap on the shoulder when it’s about time to change the reel during the few movies that are 35-millimeter film instead of digital. Fink smoked cigarettes, drank coffee and shaved in the theater’s bathroom every morning where he would douse himself with aftershave smelling of lilac. Guests and employees say they smell these scents throughout the theater from time to time. Lilac is the most frequent aroma.

he 1931 Duesenberg started it all. That’s how John Satino accidentally became a transportation coordinator for Florida’s film industry almost 40 years ago. He now owns nearly 20 classic cars, which have made appearances in movies, TV shows, commercials or music videos.His day job has always been biomedical engineering. He’s consulted for NASA, developed breakthroughs in hair replacement and owned clinics around the state. But Satino’s sideline hobby-turned-business is movie cars. His antique Mercedes and Lincoln Continental recently appeared in The Infiltrator starring Bryan Cranston. The Bentley is a regular in rap videos. The Miami Vice Ferrari was just in a commercial for a German clothing company. He bought the Duesenberg in 1981 as a project to restore for tooling around town. He later mentioned it to a client who was friends with John Tesh of Entertainment Tonight. The client knew Tesh’s co-host Mary Hart was coming to town to be the grand marshal of the city’s first St. Petersburg Grand Prix.

This 2012 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible has been used by hip-hop artist Drake in a video.
“He asked me what I’d charge to drive her around in the Duesenberg, and I said, ‘not a thing,’ ” Satino explained. “They played a clip of her in the parade on Entertainment Tonight and a guy from Universal Studios saw it.” Universal was involved in producing Dick Tracy and looking for 1920s and ’30s luxury cars. The Duesenberg certainly fit the bill. It would have sold for $20,000 in an era when Fords and Chevrolets were going for around $400. Satinowaspaid$1,500adaytoletthemovieproducershave the car for two weeks. Warren Beatty, who started as Tracy, drove it in only one scene. “After that, I said to my son, ‘Let’s go check out this film business,’ ” Satino, 79, laughed. He met with Florida Film Commissionofficialsandlearnedtherewasaconstantneed for cars in the movies, TV shows, commercials and videos shot in the state. Satino said he’d like to help find those cars and quickly became a transportation coordinator. “I would say to production teams, ‘This guy is a great resource. You go straight to him and he will get you what you need,’ ” said Jennifer Parramore, who headed the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Film Commission for 21 years until 2014. “The car thing wasn’t even his primary profession. He just did it out of love.” Satino scours car shows regularly and rubbernecks on U.S. 19 to track down hard-to-find vehicles. He’s built a list of more than 1,000 plane, car and boat owners to contact when a movie script calls for what they have. He usually brokers deals to lease the cars on behalf of the filmmakers, though he’sboughthisownstableofcarsalongtheway. While working on one movie, a cameraman mentioned that actor Michael Talbott owned the Ferrari from Miami Vice. He played Detective Stanley Switek in the popular 1980s TV show. Satino found Talbott living in Scottsdale, Ariz., and bought the car for $70,000.
Burt Reynolds was a client and friend. That’s how Satino ended up with the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am that was used in Smokey and the Bandit II. There were flashbacks to the famous cars from the classic movies in Reynolds’ most recent film, The Last Movie Star. A few years ago, Satino was fielding frequent requests from producers for a certain car and having trouble leasing it, so he set out to buy one himself. “Every rapper who comes to town has to have a Bentley in their videos,” he said. His son, Mario Shelton, started looking for a good deal on the luxury car. He found one for a great price, though it was in bad shape. The 2012 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible was stolen from a South Florida restaurant by a thief posing as a valet. It was driven fast and hard for several days until the engine caught on fire and the thieves abandoned it. It ended up in an impound lot with a bad engine, broken hood, trashed leather upholsteryandnotop.

Satino bought the car for $30,000, spent another $30,000 refurbishing it, and he now charges $5,000 a day to loan it. The Bentley has been in several videos, including Drake’s Started from the Bottom. One of Satino’s favorite cars in his collection is the turquoise-blue 1959 Edsel convertible. The Ford Motor Co. gave it to singer Rosemary Clooney after she starred in The Edsel Show, a much-hyped variety hour on CBS with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong, to kick off the launch of the brand. Satino read about the car in the singer’s autobiography and contacted the Rosemary Clooney Museum in Kentucky. He learned that she gave the car to a nephew. (Not her nephew George Clooney, but one of his cousins.) Satino searched VIN numbers and titles to find the owner, made an offer and bought the car. He loves the 45-rpm turntable under the dashboard on which Clooney’s popular rendition of Mambo Italiano played during a recent drive. The cars have proven to be good investments. An Edsel just sold in Germany for $250,000. A Trans Am that Reynolds owned — he had several over the years — sells for about the same. “Any car used in a movie or commercial, will have an increased value, the more popular the film and/or car, the bigger (the) value,” Satino said. “The money I make from movies pays for insurance, maintenance and upkeep, and the cars keep going up in value.” Times Senior Researcher Caryn Baird contributed to this story.
Satino’s car collection includes a motorcycle from Evil Knievel and other collectables from the 1950s and 1960s. Below, the Volkswagen Beetle used in the Herbie: Fully Loaded movie in 2005 with actor Lindsay Lohan.

The Quiet Room where customers relax before their treatments.

n St. Petersburg’s First Street S, traffic whizzes by, sirens blare, a construction crane looms down the street. Walk through two oversized wooden doors with flowers carved into them, however, and the bustling city is miles away. The new Woodhouse Day Spa with hardwood floors, crown molding, stone accents and low lighting is quite the escape from reality. It occupies 6,000 square feet in theeastendofthebuildingthathousesTheJamesMuseumof Western&WildlifeArt. Woodhouse offers more than 60 different treatments — from massages, manicures and pedicures to the less typical organic seaweed-leaf wrap, stretch-mark smoother, shrink-to-fit cellulite wrap and a four-handed massage choreographed by two therapists. “What sets us apart is it’s an experience. It’s not just coming for a service,” co-owner Ginger Lettelleir said. “It’s experiencing the Woodhouse from the moment you walk in the door and smell our signature aroma, then getting into your robe and slip-
pers. You begin your journey in the quiet room, put your cell phone away, unplug for a little while and let yourself relax.” Lettelleir, a former teacher, always wanted to open a spa and found the concept she had been envisioning in Victoria, Texas-based Woodhouse. She and husband Mark Lettelleir bought the rights to franchise in Tampa Bay and opened the company’s fourth Florida location. Woodhouse spas operate in Naples, Orlando, Punta Gorda and more than 50 other U.S. cities.
During the Shirodhara treatment, oil is dripped onto a customer’s forehead and scalp. It uses lavender essential oil for a soothing head and scalp massage.
People who are coming in keep saying there’s nothing like this anywhere around here.” MARK LETTELLEIR, co-owner, Woodhouse Day Spa
Top left, reception area and boutique. Left, double wood front doors. Above, duet room for treatments. At right, wall decoration at the reception area.
The couple invested about $1.5 million in the new spa and think the Tampa Bay market, especially downtown St. Petersburg, will support their new business. “People who are coming in keep saying there’s nothing like this anywhere around here,” Mark Lettelleir said. “There are 2,400 residential units that are 98 to 99 percent sold in downtown St. Petersburg. Another 2,200 are going up in the next two to three years.” Those apartments and condos are filled with several target audiences. “Millennials spend a lot of money on themselves. Retirees have time and disposable income. The LGBTQ community take care of themselves,” he said. Many of the people in those categories are referred to as “DINKs.” The acronym stands for “double income, no kids.” Woodhouse prices range from $45 for a classic manicure with hand massage to $250 for the four-handed massage. The spa has 14 treatment rooms in various sizes. Clients can get a facial in a private room. Couples can get duet massages. Groups, such as wedding parties or birthday celebrations, can get pedicures in a large stone room lined with massage chairs and beveled-glass foot bowls with a rainbow of underwater lights. In tub rooms, guests can soak in warm water and essential oils. “We also have the Shirodhara. It’s a technique where essential oil is warmed and dripped over your forehead or third eye so to speak — back into your scalp,” Lettel-
leir explained. “It’s an amazing way of touching different points in your scalp and forehead and pressure points to promote a deep sense of relaxation — that’s how the body heals. So many of our services are about wanting your body to be in a state of relaxation so the body can heal.” Every service, whether a simple pedicure or extensive massage, starts with a calming ritual. Before and after treatments, champagne, mimosas or tea are served in the “quiet room,” which is akin to a luxurious living room with various seating areas. Furniture is overstuffed and plush, a fireplace burns with gas flames no matter what the temperature outside in the real world. Debbie Morrell has made the 40-mile trip from Valrico to St. Petersburg for the Woodhouse several times since it opened in June. “It was a lot different” from other spas, she said. “It was like checking into a great hotel.” Small touches set the Woodhouse apart from other highend spas in the area, she said. She cited warm towels, the mimosa upon arrival and the quiet room where there was a variety of mixed nuts for snacks. (Meals and appetizers are also available from the James Museum’s Canyon Restaurant, which is operated by the owners of Datz in Tampa.) “The particular massage therapist I had was amazing. I’ve been getting massages since I was 16 because at one time I was a professional athlete in track and field,” Morrell said. “I have to get a deep therapeutic massage, and she gave one of the best massages I have ever had.”

Dorene Collier at Event Show Productions in Ybor City.

inging Santas, swashbuckling pirates, towering LED robots … Dorene Collier’s Event Show Productions razzle-dazzles corporate meetings, charity galas and private parties with lavishly costumed and choreographed musical numbers. “Every act is customized, not off the shelf,” Collier said. A lavish Bollywood dance opened the India International Film Festival celebration at Raymond James Stadium for an audience of 30,000. Interactive lip sync and Dancing with the Stars-type competitions energize business conferences across the country. Locally, clients include the Florida State Fair, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla and numerous hospital foundations. “Success — 28 years in business — takes convincing them that entertainment is a necessity, not just the sprinkles on top,” said Collier, 54, who began dance lessons at age 3 in Hollywood, Fla. “We are constantly reinventing a business that can be so fickle.” A few years ago, Collier, along with technology partner
Aj LeBlanc, created and patented tellAvision. The awardwinning act synchronizes a dozen or more wireless television monitors held by dancers who are unseen on a darkened stage. Words and images, programmed to convey a message or form a logo, appear on the screens as if held by dancing ghosts. Collier premiered tellAvision on America’s Got Talent, followed by performances on the Rachael Ray Show, NBC’s I Can Do That (2015) and the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland. Special Event magazine named TellAVision the Best Technological Innovation in 2015. “Every production creates jobs for local artists,” said Collier, a single mother of two adult daughters. “I love seeing them do their craft and have a reason to stay in Tampa. I supplement a lot of Busch Gardens and other theme parks’ seasonal artists.” Event Show Productions operates from a 15,000square-foot warehouse and rehearsal studio in Ybor City. Racks and racks of costumes surround wigs, wands and accessories neatly stacked to the ceiling.
How did Event Show Productions get started? I was sales manager at the Tampa Convention Center as it was being built in 1990. I would give hard-hat tours to the event planners and spew off ideas like can-can dancers, pig races, shoot-outs, and one of them (the Cargill corporation) asked me to plan their event. They became my first client when I started my own company in 1991 — called Eventions then. Prior to getting married and moving here, I was running a dance company in Miami in the ’80s when entertainment was being introduced into corporate events. There was nothing like that here … such a niche job. Event planning wasn’t my passion but I put entertainers in everything I planned and that’s how I built up my huge costume inventory. I have thousands, stored by theme — international, decades, holiday, futuristic, most one-of-akind, not something you can order from a catalog.
Is your business evenly split between corporate and non-profits? About 80 percent is corporate, so luckily I got my degree in business, which helps me understand messaging and marketing. I went to the University of Miami on both an academic and marching band scholarship and continued on the Hurricanettes dance line. About 20 percent is social — fashion shows, bar mitzvahs, charities, many repeat clients. I’ve done Georgette’s Boutique’s fashion shows for 25 years. ... I really dive into what kind of entertainment would best relay their message. Is there much local competition for what you do? No one else in the Tampa Bay area has a production facility like us. There are talent agents, but not producers who conceive, choreograph and stage a show.
In 2008 or so, I felt like the audience was changing to more Millennials and Gen X and I needed a more techsavvy product than the ones I was creating. I brought Aj LeBlanc on to start developing technical acts. The first one was Shapeology, our silhouette act, where dancers form shapes with their bodies to tell a story. How was tellAvision created? We had performed for Donald Trump’s New Year’s Eve parties at Mar-a-Lago for a few years and at one he wanted to reveal his new logo. I got the idea to hold panels that make a picture when they came together. Aj and I thought: “Wouldn’t it be cool if the picture kept changing?” We put handles on six wireless LED flat screens and synched them so the performers holding them tell a story with a video wall. We called it tellAvision and shot a demo and sent it to America’s Got Talent and they loved it. We made it to the semifinals at Radio City Music Hall. By then there were 12 dancing monitors.
The night of the live show, a dunk-tank act before us started leaking. The TVs were on the floor and the wires went down. I didn’t know if we were going to be able to go on. But everything worked, and we had a two-minute flawless performance that got us work around the world. How do you stay up on top of pop culture and social trends? I go to theater, to Vegas, watch old Busby Berkeley movies. You want to marry the new with the old to design a show for a variety of ages and backgrounds. What do you see five years from now? I’m toying with a couple of things I’ve written with television as the main technology. I’d like to develop and produce a show for Broadway or Vegas in the next five years. But I really want to develop a signature musical comedy about Tampa that could run for many years.

HELPING THOSE WHO CAN’T AFFORD
AN ORGAN TRANSPLANT LIVE TO TELL ABOUT IT
Every day in America, thousands of people are informed they need an organ transplant. Overwhelmed by the diagnosis, as well as the financial burden it represents, many of these patients turn to us. We are National Foundation for Transplants. For 35 years, we have helped patients with nearly $85 million in financial assistance for transplant-related costs that are not covered by public or private insurance. What’s more, we benefit patients and their families way beyond our financial and grant programs, with everything from education services to partnerships with the nation’s top transplant centers. Our goal is to ensure that each patient’s transplant journey – from pre-operative preparation to surgical procedure to post-operative care – is as smooth as possible, and not denied or delayed by the inability to pay for care.
As we work collaboratively – especially with our transplant center partners – to ensure quality transplant care is accessible and affordable, we will be here to help bridge the financial gap for more than 4,000 new patients every year. If you or a family member are an organ transplant candidate, we suggest contacting us as early as possible to take advantage of our team’s comprehensive resources and their many years of transplant process knowledge. If you would like to become a financial supporter of National Foundation for Transplants, we invite you to learn why we are the first stop for a second chance for Americans, just like you, who suddenly find themselves in need of a life saving organ transplant.
THE FIRST STOP FOR A SECOND CHANCE
