Night & Day

April 30 - May 6, 1998

Any woman who has ever been incensed by the howling and catcalls of construction workers can now indulge in a little good-natured revenge by hurling whoops and wolf whistles at the shorts-and-work-boots-wearing Australian beefcakes who dance up a storm in the theatrical production Tap Dogs. Created in 1995 by Dein Perry, the show was inspired by his experiences as an industrial mechanic -- whatever that means -- and his desire to bring thundering rock and roll to the stage. After playing sold-out engagements in more than 100 cities, Tap Dogs finally comes to Miami, with performances through May 10 at the Jackie Gleason Theater of the Performing Arts, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets range from $20 to $43. Call 673-7300. (NK)

Philip Jones Griffiths has traveled to more than 140 countries on five continents to capture powerful images of war, famine, and civil unrest. In 1966 he became one of a distinguished few, including Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, to join the international photojournalist cooperative Magnum Photos. He subsequently spent time in Vietnam covering the war for Life magazine. Later he hid out with Karen rebels in Burma for three months, documented the United States's invasion of Grenada, and chronicled the aftermath of the Gulf War in Kuwait. Dark Odyssey: Philip Jones Griffiths features a small portion of his body of work -- 70 remarkable photographs made over the past 40 years. The exhibition runs through June 4 at the Miami-Dade Public Library, 101 W. Flagler St. Admission is free. Call 375-2665. (
