Fantastic fashion on display
Home to one of the world’s most exclusive shopping districts, Palm Beach is also where you’ll find fashion on display at “Florida’s First Museum,” the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum. Starting October 15, the Gilded Age museum and mansion will unveil “Inside Out: Women’s Fashion from Foundation to Silhouette,” an exhibition dedicated to the history of women’s undergarments in America from the 1790s to today.
The exhibition sets out to explore the perceived roles of women against a backdrop of fashion, sociological changes and politics over the course of 8 different eras in history.
Sensational side-splitting musical in Jupiter
Be prepared for an excellent evening full of fun characters and crazy comedy as “Dracula: A Comedy of Terrors” bares its fangs at Maltz Jupiter Theatre starting October 27! The classic tale of Count Dracula is usually one that’ll send tingles down your spine—but this version will be sure to have you laughing throughout the show.

A classic fairy tale set to dance
Glass slippers, cruel stepsisters, a pumpkin carriage and now a tutu? Watch as the elegant story of a beautiful girl meeting the prince of her dreams is made even better as Ballet Palm Beach premieres “Cinderella” on November 2 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.
This is the perfect performance to bring your kids (or grandkids!) to for a fun night out!
An analysis of animated architecture
Interested in the cultural landscape of Japan? Head to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens during your stay for a relaxing day among the peaceful “Roji-en” gardens.
For those that are fans of anime films and television, the museum will unveil a new exhibition titled “Anime Architecture,” which starts November 9. This exciting show includes location photographs, concept sketches and clips from films such as Tezuka Osamu’s “Metropolis,” “Ghost in the Shell” and “Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence”.
Marveling the mother of American modernism
Take a look into the life and style of the late, great American artist Georgia O’Keeffe at the newly-renovated Norton Museum of Art. The upcoming exhibition “Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern,” is more focused on the woman herself—how she dressed, how she posed in photos, etc.—than her artistic output, which makes the show all the more unique for visitors like you.
If you fancy yourself a fan of art history, this is a no-brainer!
World premiere on stage in West Palm Beach
How many times in your life have you been offered the experience to see a world premiere? Situated at the eastern end of West Palm Beach’s bustling Clematis Street is Palm Beach Dramaworks, which is exactly where you’ll be sitting for “Ordinary Americans” this season!
The play tells the tale of Gertrude Berg and Philip Loeb, the pioneering stars of television’s groundbreaking sitcom, “The Goldbergs,” and reveals the double-edged sword between speaking out and staying silent. The show premieres December 9, so make sure to get your tickets soon!
Experience a night of symphony music
What cultural trip wouldn’t be complete without a symphony concert? Palm Beach Symphony begins its annual Masterworks Series with “Canopy of Stars” on December 8, featuring performances of Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Piano Concerto No. 4” and “Symphony No. 9.” World-renowned pianist Horacio Gutiérrez will join the symphony, led by its newly-appointed maestro, Gerard Schwarz. It’ll be a truly excellent way to end your trip to Florida’s Cultural Capital!
