MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE’S ANNUAL GALA
RAISES $608,000 FOR THE NOT-FOR-PROFIT REGIONAL THEATRE
AND ITS CONSERVATORY

The Theatre’s annual gala ‘The Disco Ball’ honored the Theatre’s director of education Julie Rowe and the faculty of the Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts

February 18, 2019 (Jupiter) – The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s exclusive annual gala The Disco Ball raised nearly $608,000 for the not-for-profit Theatre and its Conservatory.

More than 415 guests attended the spectacular benefit and live auction, held on Saturday, February 2, at The Breakers Palm Beach. Inspired by the Theatre’s musical Mamma Mia!, the luxurious affair was hosted by Honorary Chairs Brett and Rocky Langbert and honored staff members who have changed the lives of countless children and teens in the community: the Theatre’s director of education Julie Rowe and the faculty of the Theatre’s Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts.

Guests in glittering gowns and tuxedoes were treated to an enthralling and heartfelt multimedia tribute to Rowe and her faculty that featured high-energy performances by more than 100 children, many of whom are current students at the Conservatory and youth performers from the Theatre’s Professional Training Program. Backed by a 20-piece orchestra, several Conservatory alumni were flown in from other states to perform as a surprise tribute to their former mentors.

A historic ballroom bathed in candlelight illuminated the celebration, while sequined tables dressed in a dramatic palette of silver, hot pink, light pink, white and purple highlighted whimsical disco ball centerpieces and cascading roses that set the stage for a sumptuous three-course dinner. In true ‘70s style, a costumed ‘disco ball’ danced and grooved on a platform during the cocktail hour. The exquisite event also featured dancing and a live auction, with proceeds that will provide programs and scholarship opportunities for local children to attend classes and camps at the Conservatory during the upcoming school year and more.

“We feel so honored to have had such a tremendous outpouring of love for Julie Rowe and our Conservatory faculty at our gala,” said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director and chief executive. “Our not-for-profit theatre and school wouldn’t be here without its generous supporters, and we are continually strengthened by the wonderful enthusiasm our supporters bring. We are extremely grateful for the ongoing attention given by our friends and donors.”

The Theatre’s annual gala raises funds for the Theatre’s award-winning productions to help keep its performances affordable for all, as well as inspiring the next generation of young audiences through the Theatre’s community outreach programs. More than 25 percent of students receive scholarships each year.

DARING COMEDY
A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2
EXPLORES NORA’S UNTOLD STORY
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE

Fresh from its Broadway run, smart and spellbinding new play imagines what may have happened to one of literature’s most famous characters

February 4, 2019 (Jupiter) – When Henrik Ibsen’s Nora slammed the door shut on her marriage in A Doll’s House, it was said to be the slam heard around the world.

But did you ever wonder what happened to Nora after she left? Now you can find out in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s production of the biting and clever comedy A Doll’s House, Part 2 (February 24 – March 10).

Fifteen years since closing the door and 139 years since Ibsen penned the story, Nora returns to her beloved husband and children 15 years later and wonders what she will find when she opens the door. Fresh from its recent Broadway run, American playwright Lucas Hnath explores her untold story in this newly-imagined comedy.

“We are so honored to be producing the regional premiere of A Doll’s House, Part 2 for South Florida audiences,” said Andrew Kato, thie Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “This play is exciting, inventive and thrilling, and written with such a fresh voice that it’s impossible not to appreciate its charm. Even for those unfamiliar with Ibsen’s original A Doll’s House, we promise that this play will resonate and delight.”

The Theatre is planning a pre-show presentation before every performance to catch audiences up on the original A Doll’s House and the history of the play and its context in society. Forty-five minutes prior to each performance, audiences may enjoy a brief presentation in the Theatre that will include an overview of the characters, story and history of Ibsen’s classic.

Nominated for eight Tony Awards®, A Doll’s House, Part 2 premiered on Broadway in April 2017. By exploring the rules of society and gender through the context of one of literature’s most famous characters, the play earned rave reviews from critics across the country and high praise for its creativity and humor.

The Chicago Tribune wrote that the comedy is “fascinating and frequently very funny,” while The Hollywood Reporter raved that it is “an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll's House [that] stands perfectly well on its own.” The Guardian dubbed it a “sophisticated sequel that offers vibrancy and wit,” while The New York Times called it “smart, funny and utterly engrossing.” Forbes has dubbed Hnath “one of the most daring, thoughtful and original playwrights working today.”

Directed by multiple Carbonell Award-winning South Florida director J. Barry Lewis (whose recent work at the Theatre includes An Inspector Calls, Disgraced, Frost/Nixon, Glengarry Glen Ross, Dial M for Murder and Doubt: A Parable), the play will feature a cast of four acclaimed actors, including Carol Halstead as Nora (whose on and off-Broadway and regional experience includes the critically-acclaimed production of Buried Child at State Theatre New Jersey), Paul Carlin as Torvald (whose work includes Long Day’s Journey into Night with Frances Sternhagen at Irish Repertory Theatre and Temporal Powers at Mint Theatre Company), Mikayla Bartholomew as Emmy (whose recent credits include the world premiere of LORDES, Turn Me Loose: The Unghosting of Medgar Evers and The Cherry Orchard) and Mary Stout as Anne Marie (whose extensive work includes Jane Eyre and Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, and who local audiences will remember from her Carbonell-nominated performance as Duchess Maria in the Theatre’s production of Me and My Girl).

“While A Doll’s House was written nearly 140 years ago, it has a contemporary flair that speaks to today’s audiences. It is at its heart a very modern story that deals with selfishness, selflessness, growth and compromise,” Lewis said. “A Doll’s House, Part II is not a sequel to the original work, but more of a thought experiment of ‘what if.’ It presents a very sophisticated argument about what we owe to ourselves and to each other.”

The production will showcase the artistry of a host of talented designers, including scenic designer Anne Mundell (Born Yesterday, Disgraced, The Audience, Frost/Nixon, Glengarry Glen Ross and Other Desert Cities), lighting designer Kirk Bookman (An Inspector Calls, Hairspray, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Glengarry Glen Ross), costume designer Tracy Dorman (An Inspector Calls, Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, Agatha Christie: The Mousetrap), wig designer Gerard Kelly (who has designed for Hair on Broadway and on London’s West End) and Carbonell Award-winning resident sound designer Marty Mets.

Looking to treat your sweetheart to a spectacular post-Valentine’s Day evening out? Let the Theatre entertain you with the magic of live theatre! An exquisite treat for your office staff, family, neighbor, friend or sweetheart, this smart and funny new play is one you won’t want to miss.

To compliment your evening out, consider one of the Theatre’s many preferred restaurants and hotel packages. Also, share the gift of theatre with a gift certificate, available at the box office.

Patrons may purchase tickets for club level premium seats in the Theatre’s premium space, The Green Room, and enjoy the stylish lounge and amenities throughout the season.
