[Orlando, FL] – Returning by popular demand, Pablo Croce Productions brings two legendary acts from the world of Flamenco and Broadway back to Florida this month. “SIUDY Between Worlds Entre Mundos,” has tour stops scheduled in Miami and Orlando. In conjunction with National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, proceeds from the Orlando show will benefit the Be Brave Foundation, BeBraveFoundation.org, which provides support to families of pediatric cancer patients.
The highly acclaimed production, inspired by a tribal tale of passion and love, comes to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami on Saturday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept. 21, and to the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre in Orlando on Saturday, Sept. 27. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or theater box offices.
“We are very excited to return back to Florida,” says the show’s co-creator and executive producer, Pablo Croce. “We originally brought the show back to Miami in 2012, following an extensive 50-show stretch off Broadway over the previous year, that really allowed the production to build a strong foundation in the U.S. Since 2012, the show has matured significantly and has grown after bringing the essential artistic elements and disciplines introduced to the performance by Siudy Garrido herself.”
“The shows in both Miami and Orlando will also feature a new addition and special guest appearance by the acclaimed Broadway star of West Side Story, George Akram, who plays Siudy’s love interest. With a series of well received shows in Venezuela and Mexico last year, we are thrilled to have attracted a prolific team of world class talent that we are pleased to introduce for our newly developed and re-imagined shows in Miami and Orlando.”
By purchasing tickets using the offer code “brave” 50% of the proceeds will go to the Be Brave Foundation, which provides supplemental financial support to families who have a child battling cancer. In addition to financial support, the Be Brave Foundation provides “Gadget Grants” to give pediatric cancer patients new or gently used iPads, tablets, handheld gaming systems, and laptops. The electronic devices provide a distraction from the scary stuff so kids can focus all their energy on conquering cancer. Tickets may be purchased at: http://bit.ly/bebrave-siudy.
