Aisle View: Cate's Chekhov Sizzles
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh in The Present Photo: Joan Marcus There are explosives mixed in with the evening's fireworks, Cate Blanchett tells us midway through the first half of Andrew Upton's The Present at the Barrymore. Said fireworks indeed explode with a bang, but they are less explosive than the astounding Ms. Blanchett in her Broadway debut. This free adaptation of an early and not-quite-finished student play by Chekhov is a homegrown effort from the Sydney Theatre Company, an indication of the sort of fiery work Upton and Blanchett (who have been married since 1997) did during their recently-ended term as co-artistic directors. Three of Upton's other STC adaptations--Hedda Gabler, Uncle Vanya and Genet's The Maids--have made brief New York visits, thanks to Blanchett's star-power. Her presence in The Present makes it an instant event on Broadway; but the play and production are more than worthy, thank you very much. What's more, the excellence of the en ...

Margie Goldsmith: Eating my Way through Asheville, North Carolina
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Biltmore Estate, Asheville, North Carolina (all photos by: Margie Goldsmith) Most visitors to Asheville, North Carolina come to see George Vanderbilt's Biltmore Estate and to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, but I roared into town on the back of my man's BMW R1200GS motorcycle to explore one of America's greatest undiscovered food towns. Asheville is a foodtopian culture with 13 active farmers markets and 250 restaurants serving local, fresh farm to fork regional specialties and indigenous foods of Southern Appalachia. While you can walk just about everywhere in this 40-block-long city, you need wheels to get to the River Arts District which, according to the guide book, is home to 200 artist studios, galleries, and restaurants. Where are they? Everything here looks like junkyards and tear-downs, but we soon learn that's on purpose and inside are some of Asheville's hottest restaurants and bars. The locals are an eclectic bunch and like their exteriors looking like dives ...

Richard Burton's Ex Dies At Age 83
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
NEW YORK — The woman Richard Burton left to marry Elizabeth Taylor has died. Theater producer and nightclub founder Sybil Christopher was 83. The Bay Street Theater on Long Island has posted an obituary for Christopher on its website. The New York Times has reported she died Thursday in New York City. The Welsh-born Christopher was Sybil Burton when Richard Burton, her first husband, left her for Taylor in 1963. She left California for New York where she opened a nightclub in 1965 with backing from famous friends like Julie Andrews and Leonard Bernstein. The club, called Arthur, became a celebrity hangout and turned Christopher into a post-divorce success story. She married Jordan Christopher, the lead singer of the club's house band, in 1966. Christopher founded the Bay Street Theater in 1991 with two partners and was its artistic director for 22 years. She is survived by three daughters, including actress Kate Burton.

Michael Giltz: Theater: Gem-like Passion, Charming Carousel and Vanessa Redgrave in The Revisionist
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
PASSION *** 1/2 out of **** CAROUSEL AT LINCOLN CENTER *** out of **** THE REVISIONIST ** out of **** PASSION *** 1/2 out of **** CLASSIC STAGE COMPANY Revisit a classic and you're sure to discover new facets. That's certainly the case with this gem-like production by Classic Stage Company. Its intimate space is ideal for shining a light on Stephen Sondheim's 1994 masterpiece Passion and John Doyle -- who directed and designed this impeccable revival -- has made the most of it. It begins with sex and ends with love. In the beginning, the handsome soldier Giorgio (Ryan Silverman) and gorgeous Clara (a beguiling Melissa Errico) are making rapturous, passionate love. They are young. They are beautiful. They are in love. It's enough to make you hate them. But since this is the very first scene, even newcomers to the show will realize that this happiness isn't going to last and take some cold comfort in that. Indeed, Giorgio confesses he has been transferred to a barren o ...

'Dallas' review: J.R. missed already
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
'Dallas' review: J.R. missed already The first two episodes of "Dallas" 2.0, the TNT reboot of the classic nighttime soap, have all the fixin's for a juicy second season: Ewings fighting Ewings over money, the apparent return of one character's long-lost child, a surprise development in Sue Ellen's run for governor of Texas and the return of Christopher Ewing's wife, who, naturally, turns out not to be who she said she was. Over the years, writers for film, TV and stage have intentionally used the certainty of a character's death as a dramatic device. Other villains miss"Dallas" writer Cynthia Cidre obviously didn't know Hagman would die before filming for the new season was completed, so whatever foreshadowing viewers see in his performance is coincidental, albeit profound and powerful. [...] we miss Hagman already, not just because he was one of the best-known and most enduring stars of television, but also because it's hard to imagine "Dallas" being anywher ...

Sheila Parks: Scandal on Stealing the White House
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The return to the air on January 10 of the ABC television series Scandal, after a three-week hiatus, did not disappoint me. Shonda Rhimes continued to pound away at the rigging of the election that put President Fitz (R) into the White House. Episode 1 has the president's chief of staff Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) saying out loud to fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Fitz's wife Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young), "Steal the White House? Yes, we can. Been done before. Will be done again." And no one rushes to disagree with him. That seems to me to be a promise of more to come. I am wondering if Cy means these three will steal the White House again now and he and Mellie will run it while Fitz is unconscious or if he is already talking about the next election. What about their two other cohorts, lefty Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton (Debra Mooney) and the evil and hated Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry)? At this point in the story, Tea Party Vice President Sally Langston (K ...

Kate Burton: Books, theater run in family
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
Kate Burton: Books, theater run in family For about 10 years, you could usually find a book narrated by Kate Burton on the best-seller lists. Burton will step in as host, replacing the show's founder and host, Isaiah Sheffer, who died last month, when "Selected Shorts" is performed at Berkeley Repertory Theatre this weekend. Burton, who will read Edna O'Brien's "Violets," will be joined by Linda Lavin, Michael Imperioli (of "The Sopranos" fame) and René Auberjonois, who has a long history with Bay Area theater stretching back to the early days of American Conservatory Theater. Like so many stage actors, and because she excels at disappearing into character roles, Burton wasn't well known on a national level until she got a regular gig on TV. The first was the recent publication of his diaries; the second was a much-reviled Lifetime TV movie called "Liz & Dick" about his two marriages to Elizabeth Taylor. Burton would rather talk about the image of her fat ...

Horse and unborn foal die after attack in field
Guardian - almost 5 years
A PREGNANT horse has died after an attack which left her bleeding in a field near Gainsborough. Owners of the 19-year-old chestnut mare found her lying in a pool of blood at around 6am on Friday 4th May, in a field in Clay Lane, Gate Burton. It was first thought that she was starting to foal, and a vet was called. But after a through check, the vet found she had been attacked. The horse had lost a lot of blood and was taken to the vets for treatment. Sadly, the mare and her foal died on Saturday 5th May. Police are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward. The attack is thought to have happened between 9pm on Thursday 3rd May and 6am on Friday 4th May. The mare was in a field with four other brood mares and police would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the area. The owners of the mare say they are understandably devastated by her death. They described her as a ‘lovely natured animal’ who was five weeks away from foaling. ...

British Woman Chooses 161-Word Name
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
Naming Names We’ll try to make this short. BBC News reports that Dawn McManus, a 41-year-old woman from Hartlepool, England, is legally changing her name to “Red Dreams” – but between that first and last name, she’ll have 159 additional middle names. A spokesman for the Legal Deed Poll Service, the UK’s official bureau for name changes, said, “We have processed a number of crazy name changes to date, but this is the longest one on record.” It may sound like a crazy name but Ms. Dreams chose it to help raise funds for the Red Dreams charity she set up after her son’s death. Her new 161-word name not only contains the charity’s title but also the names of people it has helped. McManus’s new full name is: Red Wacky League Antlez Broke the Stereo Neon Tide Bring Back Honesty Coalition Feedback Hand of Aces Keep Going Captain Let’s Pretend Lost State of Dance Paper Taxis Lunar Road Up Down Strange All and I Neon Sheep Eve Hornby Faye Bradley AJ Wilde Michael Rice Dion Watts Ma ...

Ms Dreams set for record books!
Hartlepool Mail - almost 5 years
A CHARITY champion hopes to enter the world record books after having her name officially changed - to one which is 161 words long! Dawn McManus, 41, vowed to change her name to encourage fundraising for her charity, Red Dreams, which was set up after the death of her 16-year-old son Kyle, who died in 2007. Talented arts student Kyle was struck down by a brain tumour, and his parents Dawn and Ian set up the Red Dreams charity in Whitby Street South in his memory in a bid to nurture similar youngsters with a passion for the arts. The couple have carried out dozens of fundraisers in that time to establish the charity, but Dawn has kept her promise to do something out of the ordinary by changing her name by deed poll. She believes her new name - including the charity’s name and people it has helped - could be the world’s longest. Dawn said: “Officially I should be called Red, but I appreciate some people will find it hard to embrace the change. “Ian will probably slip up and call me ...

Cuts, fewer teachers force Volusia, Flagler schools to adapt
The Daytona Beach News-Journal - almost 5 years
PALM COAST -- Preparing for a day at Rymfire Elementary requires Lynette Monahan to create two lesson plans. Her 14 fifth-graders need to learn different material than her eight sixth-graders, so Monahan is constantly switching between two curriculums. She's among a handful of Flagler County teachers who are teaching multi-grade classes. It's one way the district is saving money in an era of lean budgets, fewer teachers and class size limits. Local schools have lost hundreds of teachers over the past five years. Volusia and Flagler counties have reduced their ranks by more than 800 full-time instructional staff members -- which include teachers, counselors and media specialists -- since fall 2006. There are also fewer students in Volusia, which has seen enrollment drop by more than 4,000 students since 2006. Flagler, though, lost more than 100 teachers but gained nearly 900 students, according to Florida Department of Education data, which includes traditional ...

When I played Schwimmer's mother, I was 37 and he was, I think, 28... that happens a lot in TV and film; you really do end up being close in age to your child, which is nonsensical." In 1996, Burton won a Daytime Emmy award for her performance as a mother dying of breast cancer in the ABC Afterschool Special, 'Notes For My Daughter'.
