A live version of the acclaimed Sundance TV series of the same name, Green Porno concerns itself, of course, with sex. But the solo performance of creator, writer, and star Isabella Rossellini is far from traditionally titillating. In a manner both surreal and biologically accurate, she reveals the mating and reproductive behaviors of animals found throughout nature, be it land, sea, or air. The balance of fact—yes, dolphins’ blowholes are used just as you’d suspect—with larger-than-life costumes and unexpected props suggests a science lecture by way of children’s theater.
The overall effect, according to the New York Times, is equal parts fun and thought-provoking: “There are messages to be discerned amid her inventory of comic couplings. Most obvious is that although nature includes plenty of heterosexuality, that is only one of a wide variety of ways that animals pair up, reproduce and raise young. Nature, it turns out, has been doing the ‘Modern Family’ thing all along.”
Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater
Back in 1950, when it was still known as the Miami Beach Municipal Auditorium, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, and Frank Sinatra could be seen in the audience acting like average Joes while enjoying song-and-dance shows and boxing bouts. Throughout the following decades, the entertainment mecca has remained a magnet for famous entertainers. In 1964, when the city of Miami asked famed funnyman and honeymooner Jackie Gleason to move his television variety show from New York to Miami Beach, he relocated in a bang-zoom, declaring “Miami Beach audiences are the greatest in the world,” then muttering under his breath, “and New York audiences smell like Art Carney’s hat.”
Rechristened as The Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts in 1987, the theater hosted the best in Broadway shows, dance and classical-music performances, and concerts throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. In 2007, the venue underwent a multimillion-dollar face- and body-lift, adding even more glitz to the sleek columned entrance and the spacious multichandeliered auditorium. Now merged with California’s famed Fillmore chain, the theater has inherited a rich rock ‘n’ roll history to add to its already lofty annals.
