1 “La Cage aux Folles,” one
of the most popular, se-
quin-soaked musicals ever, is
opening Friday, Oct. 6, at the
Kravis Center’s Marshall Rink-
er Sr. Playhouse in West Palm.
It is the hilarious tale of two
gentlemen, Georges and Al-
bin, who have been happily
partnered for 20 years, and are
running a successful business
in St. Tropez – a drag nightclub
at which Georges manages and
Albin stars as drag queen Zaza.
The feathers hit the fan when
Georges’ son (fathered during a
one-night fling) announces his
engagement to the daughter of
a bigoted, right-wing politician.
He persuades his dad to pose
as “normal” when he meets the
bride-to-be’s parents, but Albin
has something else in mind.
The height of boulevard com-
edy, “La Cage aux Folles” runs
through Oct. 22.

beginning. As a traditional artist in her early 20’s, Terry’s culinary hobby provided an
additional outlet for display of her artistic talent. She delighted in designing
confectionery masterpieces. If she wasn’t creating exquisitely decorated wedding
cakes for friends and family, she was sculpting whimsical, mouthwatering
candies, or designing sugar Easter eggs.
The occupants of those windowed eggs were meticulously detailed, right down to
microscopic whiskers on the tiny Easter bunnies. One of those Easter eggs, a gift to a
family friend, is responsible for launching her lifelong career in jewelry. The family
friend was a jeweler, and so taken with her artistry was he, that he insisted her
designs must be produced in gold. Her mentor, refusing to take no for an answer,
arranged for a full compliment of jewelers tools to be delivered, and arranged for her
to be the first and only student ever tutored by noted Russian jeweler Constance
Osmanski. Terry found herself commuting back and forth to Europe for the next twelve
years, studying and perfecting her craft in London’s famed diamond quarter, Hatton

he would have cue-bid three clubs. This probably should have persuaded South to
double West’s five-club sacrifice, which would most likely have gained 300 (after The Bidding:

This week, South, with three potential losers in two spades and one diamond, should
see that he needs to establish dummy’s spade suit before the opponents can take their
diamond trick. He has one other valuable card on the board: the diamond 10.
Declarer must duck the first trick. If West leads another spade, South wins, draws
trumps, and leads a third spade. Or, if West shifts to a diamond, declarer takes East’s
queen with his ace, draws trumps, and returns the diamond jack. A spade loser
evaporates on the diamond 10. He loses only one spade and one diamond.
