See "The Chosen" by Chaim Potok at American Stage, followed by Bella Brava

I saw this play on Friday and loved it.  You will too!  There are only 2 tickets left.  Please call American Stage  at[masked] to book your tickets for THE CHOSEN Adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, from the acclaimed novel by Chaim Potok. There are seats on hold for us but you must say you are with Tampa Jewish Singles to get our discount and sit with us.  The box office is open Monday - Friday 10 - 6  and 1 hour before performance until intermission.  Saturday and Sunday the box office is open 1 hour before performance until intermission.  After you buy your ticket, please make sure that your RSVP on this site says "YES".  There are 2 tickets left.

Regular matinee tickets are $39, but they are giving us a great discount and the tickets cost $31.20 each for this event.  Such a deal!!!! The matinee is cheaper than the evening performance, so it was decided to see the play first, then go to the restaurant rather than have dinner first and go to the theater.  Same events, different sequence, $10 cheaper.   Plus, we won't be rushed at dinner and can chat and shmooze all we want.  

The dinner venue has changed since  Moon Under Water can't accommodate us.  Bella Bravo is very, very good and reasonably priced too.  We will eat dinner after the show around 5:30 at:

Bella Brava New World Tratoria

204 Beach Dr. NE,
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

This promises to be a very good meetup.  It will be enjoyed by all!  

Parking - Synovus Bank allows patrons to use its parking lot for free during performances. It is located two blocks North of the theater at 333 3rd Avenue North. 

A standing-room-only hit wherever it has played, this award-winning adaptation (from the award-winning novel) is by the same creators of last year’s hit MY NAME IS ASHER LEV. It is 1944 Brooklyn, and two Jewish boys grow up five blocks and a world apart.  The play begins when Reuven and Danny play a heated game of baseball between rival yeshivas…until one is badly hurt. As their unique friendship grows, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community, and themselves.

"Examines the freedom that comes with the passage from childhood to adulthood -- intellectual freedom, religious freedom, America's promise of freedom." -Philadelphia Weekly "A play about the universals of family, faith, and friendship. A work of profound beauty...a marvel of theatrical perfection...you do not want the performance to end." -Berkshire On Stage

    Shelle, please call American Stage at the number listed and pay them for The Chosen on Sept. 20 at 3:00. I see that you are already signed up for this event. Don't forget to tell them that you are with Tampa Jewish Singles so that you can get the discounted price of $31.20 and sit with us in the section I have on hold for us. It will be a very worthwhile show and we'll also have dinner together. A good event. I look forward to meeting you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
