David Copperfield: Don't talk bunny rabbits and top hats to David Copperfield. And if you've ever wondered how he walks through that giant industrial fan, how he survives being cut in half by a laser, how he got Claudia Schiffer to agree to marry him -- well, keep wondering, because he's not going to tell you. He will, however, delight you with illusions that will take your breath away. (Maybe we can get him to make Miami's budget deficit disappear.) Copperfield brings his sell-out Broadway show Dreams and Nightmares to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale) tonight and tomorrow at 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. The show moves to the Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) on March 14 at 9:00 p.m., March 15 at 1:00, 4:30, and 8:00 p.m., and March 16 at 1:00 and 4:30 p.m. Tickets range in price from $26 to $48. Call the venues at 954-462-0222 or 673-7300. (JO)

Laurence Shames: Key West-based author Laurence Shames has penned a number of sweltering thrillers set in and around the waters of his own back yard, including Tropical Depression, Sunburn, Scavenger Reef, and Florida Straits. His latest book Virgin Heat may be the most scorching yet, as Mafia princess Angelina Amaro hunts down Sal Martucci, the man who betrayed her father and stole her heart. Shames reads from Virgin Heat tonight at 8:00 p.m. at Books & Books (296 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). Admission is free. Call 442-4408. (GC)

Forever Tango: A hand flicks, a foot taps, an eyebrow arches, and everything is said. The sultry Argentine dance of lust and romance takes over the Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Choreographed and directed by Luis Bravo in 1990, Forever Tango traces the dance's history -- from the bordellos of Buenos Aires to Parisian high society to contemporary stages -- through spectacular, sensual dance numbers and musical interludes performed by an all-Argentine cast of fourteen dancers and eleven musicians. The show ran for eighteen months in San Francisco and six months in Chicago to packed houses, and stops in South Florida on its way to Broadway. Tickets range in price from $19 to $35. Performances run today through March 7 at 8:00 p.m., and March 9 at 3:00 p.m. Call 673-7300. (GC)

FM 2030: Renowned futurist FM 2030 wants to shed the light of the future on the present. The author of Are You a Transhuman? and Telespheres, Mr. 2030 (he had his name legally changed to reflect his belief that the years around 2030 will be "a magical time") was one of the first academics to lecture about and teach future studies at American universities, including Harvard, UCLA, New York's New School of Social Research, and George Washington University. FM 2030 conducts a two-part seminar entitled "Major Transformations: The Next Ten Years" tonight and March 11 at 7:00 p.m. at FIU North Campus (NE 151st Street and Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami), during which he will discuss his ideas about the rise of the 21st-century post-industrial world, specific techniques for looking to the future rather than the past, and trends regarding technology and social values. Admission is $40, or $65 for both lectures. Call 919-5669. (GC)

Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show: All auto shows are not created equal. For example, the Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show, running through March 9 at the Broward County Convention Center (1950 Eisenhower Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), is the only one in the nation that benefits charity. In addition to helping out the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County, visitors can catch the "Yugo Next" exhibition, a collection of redesigned Yugo automobiles by students from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. It's not every auto show where you get to see a grand piano made from a car -- much less from a car manufactured in a country that doesn't even exist any more. Later hop over to NASA's Technology Highway, featuring the latest gadgets in transportation. Oh yeah, and you can see some new car models for 1997, too. Admission is six dollars for adults, half for children ages six to twelve, and free for kids under six. Show hours are 2:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. today through March 7; 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on March 8; and 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on March 9. Call 954-765-5900. (JO)
