All New People
If you’re a person whose watched Garden State 1500 times and loved Zach Braff on Scrubs, then you’re not going to want to miss his latest project. All New People is play written by Braff that will be showing at the Zoetic stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center from January 10 to January 27th. It’s a play about 4 people (a severely depressed man, a woman in need of a green card, a fireman/drug dealer and a call girl) who form unexpected friendships when one of them gets fed up with life and decides to commit suicide. It’s fun for the whole family but for the sake of not being on the wrong side of child services, attendees should be at least 18 and older.

Holy Motors follows a day in the life of Monsieur Oscar as he attends nine appointments in Paris via limousine each donning a different guise and persona.
