To do Wednesday: Carol Duboc, "Man of La Mancha" and Art Cinema at the Crest


Art Cinema at the Crest: This new weekly film series at the Crest Theater in downtown Delray Beach opens with the Humphrey Bogart classic "Casablanca," but for a reason you possibly never considered. Brian Ridolfo, a film buff at the Delray Center for the Arts who developed the series, says he was shocked at how many people he talked to who had never seen the film that they could quote so glibly. A Blu-ray version of "Casablanca" will screen at 6 and 8:30 p.m. at the Crest Theatre at Old School Square (51 N. Swinton Ave.). $8. Cash bar and concessions available. 561-243-7922 or — Ben Crandell


Carol Duboc: The jazzy singer-songwriter opens her new album, "Smile," with "Elephant," a piano-driven soul-cleanser that chronicles the slow and sometimes torturous dissolution of her marriage. If the songs of her sixth album recall the pain and confusion of a relationship, they are likewise therapeutic, as Duboc will no doubt show when she performs tracks from the R&B-infused album at Jazziz Nightlife in Boca Raton. She will be backed by a quartet consisting of producer-keyboardist Jeff Lorber, Yellowjackets bassist Jimmy Haslip and others. Showtimes are 7 and 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. $35-$65. 561-300-0730 or — Phillip Valys


"Man of La Mancha": The guy who made tilting at windmills a "thing," Don Quixote, is the figure at the center of the musical opening Wednesday at Palm Beach Dramaworks (201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach). Based on Miguel de Cervantes' errant knight in "Don Quixote" and adapted from Dale Wasserman's 1959 teleplay "I, Don Quixote," the show operates like a play-within-a-play as performed by an imprisoned Cervantes as he awaits conviction by the Spanish Inquisition. The show runs through July 21. 8 p.m. $35. 561-514-4042 ext. 2, or — Phillip Valys
