“Murder Sleep” will premiere in May at the Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival.
ORLANDO — At an aging hotel in Fort Lauderdale, the handsome young stud Ryan is only too eager to welcome the beautiful and exotic woman he’s met at the bar, Francesca, into his room for the afternoon. What he doesn’t quite expect is the strange tale she spins, about the rich man staying there who took advantage of her, even abused her, who also happens to be carrying plenty of cash. Just think, she tells her out-of-work hunk, how much better their lives would be if they could sneak into his room, late at night, knife in hand ….
Freeline Productions is producing “Murder Sleep,” an original play that will make its premiere at the Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival in May.

There are a fast-growing number of new construction jobs in the Orlando area, as new residential developments are being built.
ORLANDO – As the economy continues to recover, one industry in particular appears to be making a sharp comeback, and that’s the field of construction. And that’s been particularly true here in Florida, according to the nation’s top construction industry group.
According to the report released on March 25 by the Associated General Contractors of America Association, California led the nation by adding the most construction jobs last year — 53,800 altogether, a 7.6 percent jump between February 2015 and February 2016.
But Florida was close behind, adding 25,800 jobs, a 6.2 percent increase, in the past year.
The construction industry is making a rebound just as Florida’s economy appears to be becoming one of the strongest in the nation. Last week, Gov. Rick Scott announced that the Orlando area was leading the state in terms of job growth, adding 53,900 new private-sector jobs over the year in January. That was the highest number of new jobs among all Florida metro areas. The Orlando area’s unemployment rate has fallen to 4.7 percent in January, below the national average of 4.9 percent.

An Flamand, the owner and broker at Orlando Vacation Reality, wants to hear from builders looking for buyers.
ORLANDO – An Flamand, owner and broker at An Flamand-Orlando Vacation Realty, is interested in working with experienced & professional builders – particularly ones who own land in Central Florida and are ready to develop, but haven’t started construction yet.
If those builders haven’t started construction yet, An is encouraging them to call her. An has a very unique niche market, which allows her to assist builders or developers to sell pre-construction which will help the builder with their construction loans etc. However it is key that the builder has experience, a good track record, is financially stable and is honest and ethical, An will do her due diligence and will not work with them otherwise. An has a large group of serious international investors as well as a large international network who are key to the success of a project and who are very interested not only in the Greater Orlando housing market, but also in pre-construction sales. We work totally different than any other Real Estate company. We only work with a select few builders who will bring a good product and will give us the opportunity to offer an exclusive product with maximum opportunity for appreciation and ROI (Return of Investment).
