THE ROYALE by Florida Native Marco Ramirez

Only 4 chances left to catch the show both audiences and critics love! 

WE THE PEOPLE…WILL FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE

From an award-winning writer on the hit TV series Orange Is the New Black comes one of America’s hottest new plays. Jay “The Sport” Jackson wants nothing more than to prove he’s the best boxer in the world. However in the Jim Crow era, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” The Sport just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion. But is the country ready for this face off? Through the sights and sounds of the early 20th century boxing circuit, THE ROYALE packs a punch that will leave you breathless.

States that elected Donald Trump, including Florida, most affected by his health care decision

October 18, 2017 - President Donald Trump‘s decision to end a provision of the Affordable Care Act that was benefiting roughly 6 million Americans helps fulfill a campaign promise, but it also risks harming some of the very people who helped him win the presidency.

The Mayoral Morning After…

October 18, 2017 - This local election cycle has been remarkable in a number of ways. The Mayor’s race has set new highs (and lows) for money, misinformation and malice. Friends and even family members have split alliances among mayoral and city council candidates. Even President Obama has weighed in with an endorsement for Mayor Rick Kriseman. And throughout the campaign, social media has served up campaign news, and fake news, on a non-stop basis. But regardless of the election outcome, we must resolve to focus on the truly important issues that are impacting our community every day. Political campaigns come and go, but the morning after the election, our community will still be faced with significant challenges and opportunities that will determine our collective progress.
