Justin Timberlake coming to Orlando in December

Justin Timberlake is having himself quite the weekend.

Late last week, Variety reported Timberlake will produce and star in Spinning Gold, a biopic about record mogul Neil Bogart, who discovered Curtis Mayfield, Kiss, Donna Summer and the Village People, among others.

Over the weekend, Timberlake confirmed that he is, in fact, planning a second volume of his chart-topping album The 20/20 Experience, which will be released Sept. 30. And on Monday, Timberlake decided to announce a massive fall and winter North American tour. So far, there's only one Florida tour stop, and it's in Orlando, but c'mon, you know JT is worth driving an hour and a half up I-4.

Timberlake will stop at Orlando's Amway Center on Dec. 19 — his last stop before a nearly monthlong holiday hiatus on the tour. Tickets start at $45, and they'll go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. May 13.

This is twice this year that Timbo has decided to skip Tampa. His joint tour with Jay-Z will hit Miami's Sun Life Stadium on Aug. 16.

Orlando, of course, is the former backyard of 'N Sync. Maybe we can expect a reunion? Chris Kirkpatrick better be on his suit and tie s---, just in case.

    TAMPA — Tampa Repertory Theatre has always insisted on putting on plays that mean something. Several shows over the last couple of years have zeroed in on the social and cultural baggage that comes with being female (The Children's Hour, Silent Sky and Grounded come to mind). None of those …
