Out Flanking

SU football players react to Michael Sam announcement By Xhevrije West

“C

oming out” has been coined as America’s term for publicly displaying your sexual preference. There are only two reactions that one can expect when making this announcement: acceptance or rejection. In men’s athletics, this can either be a burden released or a controversy unleashed. When University of Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam came out for the first time publicly about his sexual orientation, a huge weight must have been lifted off of his broad shoulders. Sam is projected to be an early-round pick for the NFL draft, which begins May 8. If chosen, he will be the first publicly gay NFL player. He came out to teammates in August and received a very welcoming response. Matthew Bennett, a Virginia Tech graduate student originally from Columbia, Mo., said in an interview that he had a brief encounter with Michael Sam at the only gay bar in Columbia about two years ago. Bennett, who identifies as a gay man, was out with some girls when Sam and one of his friends followed them out to their car. Bennett immediately thought that Sam and his friend were trying to get the ladies’ attention. However, it was just the opposite: Bennett and Sam exchanged numbers but never got the chance to hang out. It wasn’t until later that he found out that Sam was a NFL prospect football player for the University of Missouri. “Coming out is different for everyone,” Bennett said. “I hope he did what was right for him. Everyone navigates the coming-out process differently, and even if there is a ‘right time’ to do it, it’s still nerve-wracking and emotional. When someone is brave enough to come out in a realm dominated by strict hypermasculinity, that’s huge news.” Three Syracuse University football players responded to questions about their reaction to Sam’s announcement: “We all have our own quirks and being gay won’t make us turn our backs on him. He is an awesome player no matter his sexuality.” —Alryk Perry, freshman, linebacker, Columbus, Ga.

“I consider all my teammates brothers and no matter what I will love my brother. There has to be a level of maturity in this profession. As long as that guy is doing his job, then I am able to do my job. I applaud Michael Sam for being so honest and open.” —Tyler Marona, sophomore, defensive lineman, Pasadena, Calif. “The football team at Syracuse isn’t your typical team. It’s a family. I can’t speak highly enough of the support system surrounding each individual in the Syracuse football program, and in no way should anyone have to hide who they are in regards to thinking their teammates and coaches will look down on them, whether that be at Syracuse or on any other team.” —Macauley Hill, junior, wide receiver, Port Huron, Mich.

ayor Stephanie Miner finds herself once again at the center of a dispute over tax breaks for a Bob Congel-related building project, this time in the form of a proposed 252room hotel adjacent to the expanded Destiny USA mall. But in this case, there is little the mayor can do to prevent the tax deal from going through. Wednesday, Feb. 12, Miner declared her opposition to further tax breaks for Destiny, insisting that the 30-year tax break granted to the developer included a promise of a hotel which has not been delivered. “Eighteen months ago,” she told the Syracuse New Times in a Feb. 12 telephone interview after announcing her decision, “I was told that the project was complete. They didn’t build the amenities that they promised, including a hotel, but they were going to keep the PILOT {payment in lieu of taxes agreement}. “This time, however, the mall developer is circumventing the city by requesting the breaks through the Onondaga County Industrial Development Agency. OCIDA is authorized to grant tax concessions anywhere in Onondaga County, including in the city of Syracuse, even if the mayor and the common council object.”

“Their attorney reached out to my special representative to say they wanted a 252-room hotel on the northeast corner lot, and they were looking for benefits similar to other hotels: 18 years, like the Marriott downtown,” Miner said. “We ran an analysis based on a property value of $75 million. They would get a $750,000 mortgage filing tax waiver, save $4.5 million in sales tax, which is common. With a PILOT, they would be paying $3.2 million in taxes, compared to $17.4 million without a PILOT. That comes to $19.4 million, and we rounded up to $20 million. “Where the evidence shows benefit to the public, we will provide benefits to developers,” Miner continued. “We’ve had record levels of economic development year after year. Look at the Inner Harbor, the Pike Block, downtown Marriott. People were saying five years ago that downtown was dead.” Would a Destiny hotel ultimately bring in enough sales tax to offset a property tax break? “Let’s see the numbers,” Miner said. “Let’s see data, not just assume that there will be a benefit. I said the same about the stadium: I’m not for it or against it, I want to see the data.” o

Kramer Political Theater

Put-upon county executive speaks out for underappreciated pols By Jeff Kramer

L

ooks like we already have our first show for the Outdoor Amphitheater: Love Letters starring Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney and retired Newhouse School Dean David Rubin. Their emotionally charged exchanges in The Post-Standard were a perfect antidote for the winter doldrums. My favorite line (spoiler alert) was when the $122,000-a-year public servant—proud daughter of a former assemblyman— gave voice to that most helpless and overlooked underclass of all in New York state: politicians. “I think I speak for many when I say the abuse we take when we put ourselves out there to help our communities is annoying,” she raged in her response last week to a critical column by Rubin. Annoying? Seriously? I don’t mean to blame the victim, but when you spend every waking hour playing footsies with the governor from the other party, and then scuttle up The Hill to secretly—OK, quietly—help a private university build a publicly funded sports palace that almost no one knows jack about, well, yes, some people will react negatively no matter how much rain you save. It’s called politics.

Not that I’m letting Rubin off the hook. By failing to return the message Joanie left at his office the Sunday his column ran, he provoked in her a public jeremiad that spilled the beans on some uncomfortable truths about my profession. Most damaging was her accusation that Rubin avoided contacting her or her staff in reporting his column, despite knowing that she had relevant information about the stadium proposal. “My guess is that the facts might have gotten in the way of the story you were trying to tell, so better to just ignore the facts,” she fumed. Nice job, Rubin. Now the whole world knows how I work, too. Of greater concern, though, is Joanie. As a victim of PTSE (Political Traumatic Stress Entitlement), she needs time to heal. We can all help in that process by speaking to her in calm, soothing tones and making a special effort to avoid unpleasant, annoying topics such as her pen-

chant for stashing friends and family on the county payroll. Will you join me in stopping the cycle of abuse? Adopting a nurturing, empathic posture toward an elected official might feel strange at first, especially if you’re not a major corporation. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Here are three hypothetical interaction scenarios with the county executive. Each scenario has an annoying and non-annoying response option. By understanding the difference, you’ll be less annoying to Joanie and reduce your risk of getting scorched in the hellfire of another open letter campaign.

Scenario No. 1

You’re at a $1,000-a-plate fundraiser for Gov. Andrew Cuomo hosted by Joanie. Your first words to her are: Annoying: Hey, Joanie, you know that state anti-corruption thing you’re on? The Moribund Commission or whatever it’s called? Like, seriously, what’s the real reason you didn’t want them to investigate Cuomo’s finances? You two in the tank or what? Hey, these crab puffs are killer! Non-annoying: Congratulations on the Wall Street Journal naming you a person to watch in 2014. I’m so happy that they recognized you as the strong, confident Republican woman that you so clearly are. Maybe David Rubin should take notes—for once. (Laugh) Wow, these crab puffs are yum!

Scenario No. 2

You have a deep emotional attachment to the Carrier Dome, so you’re upset that Joanie was involved in a stealth plan to tear it down and replace it with a taxpayer-subsi-

dized McStadium in the ’hood. You log in for a live chat with Joanie at Syracuse. com, and type the following: Annoying: Sounds like a classic smokescreen, Joanie. You and the gov pushed the secret stadium plan knowing Mayor Steph would shoot it down due to insufficient information. That way, he would have an excuse to spend the money elsewhere. You must really want to be Lt. Gov. Admit it, Joanie: You’re a tool. Non-annoying: Hi, Joanie! I saw you on the news introducing that Hoffman two-toed sloth at the zoo. So adorable. Everyone could tell how much it loved you. Speaking of slow-moving animals, I know it must be frustrating to work on campaign finance reform, but I want you to know how much we all appreciate it.

Scenario No.3

You attend a speech by Joanie at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University titled “Female Managerial Empowerment and Entrepreneurship in an Age of Unfunded Mandates”—a real showstopper. During the question-and-answer period, you ask. . . Annoying: Madam executive, how would it make you feel as a strong, confident Republican woman if you ran for Congress against Democrat Dan Maffei, and your boy Cuomo endorsed him instead of you? Wouldn’t you be annoyed, considering you’re already serving as Cuomo’s unpaid handmaiden? Or is he paying you? Non-annoying: You did the right thing, Joanie! I’ve never liked that Carrier Dome anyway. It’s too loud. o

T

he sheer genius of it all. How could we have missed it? It now appears that what’s been going on in the ’Cuse this past month is nothing less than a Cuomo-Mahoney-Congel plan to bring the Winter Olympics to Syracuse. Brilliant. Think about it. First the governor rolls into town with a plan for a stadium that we don’t need and didn’t ask for. The mayor acts stunned for a moment, then appoints a task force of notables to study the issue. That task force, it appears, is the de facto committee to bring the Olympics to Syracuse. As soon as the task force is formed, the County Legislature agrees to pony up $1.1 million to purchase the Hotel Syracuse. Before the ink on that check has time to dry, mall developer Bob Congel comes up with a plan for a hotel at Destiny USA, one that will include a request for a tax break. The always-cagey Congel disguises his hotel, which has no name, affiliation, or visible design plans, as a plan to lure Canadian shoppers, but we know better. Clearly our leaders have been paying attention to the journalists at Sochi whining about the nasty conditions in their hotels. Presto: We’ve got the hotels. We’ve got the stadium. What else do we need? Well, there is the problem of those stray dogs. Animal lovers around the globe have been horrified to learn that the Russians have hired hunters to apprehend and eliminate the unattended canines that seem to be found everywhere in Sochi. An Olympic venue cannot have unescorted mutts meandering in and out; nor can organizers afford to risk the wrath of puppy lovers everywhere by euthanizing the homeless hounds. As anyone who watched this year’s Super Bowl commercials can attest, puppies are more popular than sex. That’s quite a following. Ever the forward thinker, Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney asks the legislature to drop $350,000 to build a kennel at Jamesville Penitentiary. The kennel will give the inmates some therapeutic contact with puppies that would otherwise be put to death, and it will give the dogs some contact with convicts. Reliable reports indicate that

Syracuse sends strays to doggie heaven at a rate considerably higher than our upstate neighbors, which is not only sad but puts us at a competitive disadvantage when it comes to pleasing the International Olympic Committee’s Site Selection Committee. The days when one could procure an Olympic nod with a few well-placed bribes are long gone. As recently as 2002, the IOC awarded the Winter Olympics to a Salt Lake City committee led by a man known to strap his pooch to the roof of his station wagon while taking his family on vacation. Post-Sochi, however, Olympic venues will need to show that they know how to treat their dogs. And what better way to show that we love our stray dogs than to send them to prison? The legislature, exercising its due diligence, cut $100,000 (barely enough to pay the overtime for two sheriff’s deputies) from Mahoney’s request and approved the puppy hotel behind bars. There was still one angle to cover: What to do with the protesters? No Olympic fan wants to turn on the TV expecting to watch Shaun White dazzle on the half pipe and instead have to look at a bunch of aging radicals waving posters of dead Pakistani children. It’s just not in the Olympic spirit. Conveniently, town of DeWitt Justice David Gideon demonstrated the resolve of the Syracuse community to lower the boom on dissent. Gideon sentenced 12 dangerous peace activists to 15 days at Jamesville Penitentiary for their disorderly conduct. Echoing the frustrations voiced by Russian President Vladimir Putin about his Pussy Riot problem, Gideon told those assembled in court, “At some point, this has to stop.” Without even cracking a smile, the judge also gave the military base an order of protection against the unarmed activists. So whenever the Olympics come to the Salt City, we can pop Ed Kinane into the poky, where presumably he can walk an abandoned pit bull who will talk some sense into him. Let the Games begin! o Read Ed Griffin-Nolan’s award-winning commentary every week in the Syracuse New Times. You can reach him at edgriffin@twcny.rr.com.

Curses, Foiled Again New Zealand authorities nabbed a Vietnamese man at the Auckland airport trying to smuggle tropical fish into the country after they noticed his bulging pants pockets were leaking. Ministry of Primary Industries official Craig Hughes said the man explained that he was carrying water from the plane because he was thirsty, but subsequent questioning turned up seven tropical fish hidden in two plastic bags in his cargo pants. (Agence France-Presse) Police investigating a break-in at a home in Westborough, Mass., where the intruder used a hammer to smash a fish tank, windows and mirrors, identified Michael D. Turpin, 44, as their suspect after finding blood on the floors. Officers followed the bloody footprints to a home, where they found Turpin “bleeding profusely” from both his feet.

Future Farmers Researchers are designing robots that can harvest fresh produce without bruising it by integrating advanced sensors, robotic hardware and GPS technologies. Farmers say the robots are costly, but they ultimately save money, avoid labor shortages and yield a more consistent product. Farm workers counter that using robots results in lost jobs and greater pesticide use. (Associated Press) A Massachusetts enterprise, New Earth Robotics, announced it’s teaming up with Worcester Polytechnic Institute to develop self-powering robots to destroy weeds and harmful pests, rendering herbicides and pesticides obsolete. “The robot’s artificial intelligence will make them able to tell crops from weeds and good bugs from the bad,” the company’s Dean Cook explained, adding that the first step is to raise $65,000 to begin research.

Second-Amendment Follies James Pace Sr., 81, told police he was holding a .22-caliber rifle while sitting by the back door of his home in New Haven, Conn., waiting for a raccoon who’d been annoying him to show up, when he sneezed, fell out of the chair and accidentally shot himself in the shin. (The Hartford Courant)

Iowa began granting permits to own and carry guns in public to people who are legally or completely blind. “There’s no reason solely on the basis of blindness that a blind person shouldn’t be allowed to carry a weapon,” National Federation of the Blind official Chris Daniel said. “Presumably they’re going to have enough sense not to use a weapon in a situation where they would endanger other people, just like we would expect other people to have that common sense.” (The Des Moines Register)

Perils of Publicity When Joseph Derrico resigned from the Hamilton Township, N.J., police force after being indicted on a charge of receiving stolen property, he applied for and was granted a tax-free disability pension of $69,703 a year. New Jersey’s Police and Firemen’s Retirement System board of trustees voted unanimously to revoke Derrico’s pension after he appeared on Bear Swamp Recovery, a truTV cable network reality show about vehicle repossessions by the “baddest towing team in Jersey.” During one episode, Derrico runs after

Sons of Beaches Florida’s beaches are running out of sand. Even worse, communities that have replenished storm-eroded beaches by dredging up offshore sand are discovering that there’s little sand left offshore. As a result, beach communities are competing to find more sand. “You have counties starting wars with each other over sand,” Broward County mayor Kristin Jacobs said. “Everybody feels like these other counties are going to steal their sand.” Broward officials are considering a proposal to grind down recycled glass into substitute beach sand. Another option is trucking sand to beaches from sand mines in central Florida. (The New York Times)

Problem Solved The way to stop recidivism, according to Maryland’s attorney general, is to give prisoners tablet computers with Internet access. Android tablet, for example, would allow inmates to benefit from e-books, law resources and online learning programs. “It has to work,” Douglas F. Gansler declared. “It’s common sense that it will work.” Coincidentally, American Prison Data Systems is seeking to sell prison systems tablets that it promises are indestructi-

ble and designed so they can’t be used as weapons. CEO Christopher Grewe said tablet and Internet access would cost $500 a year per inmate. (The Washington Times)

Country in Need of a First Amendment Indonesian authorities detained Broderick Chin, a manager at a vegetable oil company in Riau province, after workers who couldn’t find a red-and-white Indonesian flag to fly on Independence Day complained that he told them, “Just use my underpants. I have red underpants, and my wife has white ones.” National police official Agus Rianto said Chin was charged with insulting a state symbol and faces five years in prison. (Malaysia Chronicle)

What’s Your Emergency? Authorities in Hooksett, N.H., charged Jeanie Dufresne with misuse of 911 after she made 10 non-emergency calls in one month, including one asking for a pen. Earlier this year, Hooksett resident Elizabeth Niemi was arrested for calling 911 to ask for help ordering Chinese food. Police Chief Peter Bartlett said he hoped that holding Dufresne and Niemi accountable would send a warning that the emergency system is “not for something frivolous.” (Boston’s WBZ-TV) Police told citizens of Fairfield, Conn., to stop calling 911 to complain about losing their cable television service after the emergency system was inundated with calls from distressed Cablevision customers. “Misuse of the 911 system may result in arrest,” police posted on the department’s Facebook page.

In a Tom Clancy novel, I came across the repeated assertion that Chairman Mao was a pedophile. Clancy seems to care about historical detail, but I wonder about the accuracy of this. Did the founder of Communist China prey on little girls? —Michael I understand your suspicion. After all, if a Chinese leader once revered as a demigod had a penchant for preying on underage girls, surely it would have been well covered by now in the Chinese press. Oh, wait. The Clancy book you’re talking about is The Bear and the Dragon (2000), in which the United States and Russia team up in war against China. At several points, characters comment disapprovingly about Mao’s sexual proclivities. However, let’s get the story straight: 1. Nowhere does the book suggest Mao was a pedophile, pedophilia being understood as the desire for sex with prepubescent children. “We had the data over at Langley,” one character says. “Mao liked virgins, the younger the better. Maybe he liked to see the fear in their cute little virginal eyes.” Elsewhere, Mao’s partners are described as “barely nubile,” i.e., young but pubescent. 2. Possibly Clancy really did get the dirt on Mao from CIA HQ. But a lot of it likely came from The Private Life of Chairman Mao (1994), by Li Zhisui, for 22 years one of Mao’s physicians. Li says Mao did have a weakness for young women. How young? The Chinese leader liked to reminisce about an encounter he’d had with a pretty 12-year-old when he was a teenage villager. Elsewhere, Li says Mao “followed the tradition of Chinese emperors,” one of whom supposedly bedded a thousand young virgins. This may be the basis for Clancy’s claim that Mao had a thing for virgins.  3. But Li himself doesn’t say that. He apparently means Mao followed Chinese emperors in thinking sex with young women would keep him young and potent. Evidently it worked: “Mao

had no problems with the young women he brought to his bed—their numbers increasing and their average ages declining as Mao attempted to add years to his life.” 4. According to Li, Mao’s women were neither exceptionally young nor unwilling. Typically they came from impoverished backgrounds, owed their lives to the Party, and were proud to have been chosen. Li writes: “They loved him. . . as their great leader. They were all very young when they began serving Mao—in their late teens and early 20s—and usually unmarried. When Mao tired of them and the honor was over, they married young, uneducated men with peasant pasts.” 5. Some of the women, though, were underage by Western standards. In 1997, journalist Jonathan Mirsky interviewed a middle-aged woman he called Ms. Chen, who said she’d caught the chairman’s eye as a dancer and began having sex with him in 1962, when she was 14. (One presumes she was a virgin at the start.) Mirsky calls Mao a pedophile, which isn’t strictly true, but no matter: In many U.S. jurisdictions, the chairman would have been guilty of rape because of the age of the girl. 6. The Great Helmsman wasn’t a one-night-stand kind of guy. According to Ms. Chen, her relationship with Mao lasted five years, after which she was exiled to the provinces, supposedly at the insistence of Mao’s wife, Jiang Qing. “Mao, she claimed, took her on his knee and wept, but said he could do nothing,” Mirsky writes. 7. Mao’s playmates could get feisty, Li says. Once the chairman and a young lover got into a shouting match when he wouldn’t let her marry, and she

accused him of being a corrupt bourgeois womanizer. She threatened to go public but was talked into apologizing. In short, the impression Clancy gives of little girls tearfully awaiting deflowering seems exaggerated. Nonetheless, was Mao a dirty old man? You bet. More from Dr. Li: Mao “was happiest and most satisfied with several young women simultaneously sharing his bed,” Li writes. “He encouraged his sexual partners to introduce him to others for shared orgies, allegedly in the interest of his longevity and strength.” Mao chose handsome young men as personal attendants, who among other duties were expected to massage his groin nightly to help him fall asleep. “For a while I took such behavior as evidence of a homosexual strain,” Li says, “but later I concluded that it was simply an insatiable appetite for any form of sex.” Mao was a carrier of a parasitic STD but refused treatment, spreading the disease among his partners. He further refused to bathe or clean his genitals, receiving only nightly rubdowns with hot towels. “I wash myself inside the bodies of my women,” he told Li. For what it’s worth, he apparently also never brushed his teeth. This may not sound like a kink to you, but you didn’t have to kiss him. So, was the great leader a sexual predator? Yeah. Pedophile? No. Virgin deflowerer? Probably on occasion, but there’s little evidence it was a regular thing. These may be fine points, but that’s what we do. o

Going Bananas in the Big Apple An unemployed exec whines with wit in Neil Simon’s Prisoner of Second Avenue

N

By James MacKillop

eil Simon’s rarely revived The Prisoner of Second Avenue is the darkest of all his comedies, bar none. So many misfortunes befall hapless adman Mel Edison that he feels like an anticipation of the Joe Benjamin character in the playwright’s God’s Favorite, Simon’s comic take on The Book of Job, written a few years later. Snip out the frequent laughter in Prisoner, running through March 1 at Appleseed Productions, and you’re left with a rough draft of Death of a Salesman set in midtown Manhattan. The secret is that the prisoner of the title does not rage against his fate or even bitch. What he does is kvetch, a Yiddish word implying complaint with a sense of absurdity in it all. Prisoner is set at the time of its opening, 1971, when many New Yorkers felt they were trapped in a mini-apocalypse. Director Tina Lee reminds us of the date by running a track of All in the Family’s Archie and Edith Bunker warbling “Those Were the Days.” Mel (played by Robb Sharpe) observes, “This is the most crime-ridden city in the history of the world.” True, civility on the street had receded from those halcyon days at the end of World War II, a problem that has since been addressed by decades of well-planned policing. At the time, though, the threat led to a kind of malaise that perceived everything as breaking down, from the

economy to elevators. About the same time cartoonist Jules Feiffer wrote Little Murders, an even darker, less funny comedy that has not endured as well. A chief difference is that while Feiffer’s real subject is fear, Simon is actually focusing on family. Mel begins in discomfort. He awakes in the middle of the night, yes, kvetching. While trying to sleep in his 14th-floor apartment at 88th Street and Second Avenue on the Upper East Side, he’s too hot. It’s July 23. When he gets out of bed, he’s too cold. The air conditioning is hyper-efficient. Next door two Lufthansa air hostesses are entertaining loud, libidinous gents from around the world. The harsh sounds of sirens and barking dogs float up the complete 14 floors to assault his ears. Everything in his milieu, including the cushions on his expensive couches, is an affront to his comfort. We learn a bit later that Mel’s irritability is triggered in part by his having lost his job and not wanting to admit it to his wife Edna (Aileen Kenneson). Out on the street at age 47, but it’s not his fault,

just a purge that wiped out the staff en masse. Not that Mel has anything to fear from Edna, who’s most reasonable and accommodating. Simon may have based Edna on his much-loved first wife Joan, then still in good health. By denying Edna comic lines, there’s no Punch-andJudy butting of heads, which also means that Sharpe’s Mel has to engender most of the comedy on his own, which he does. Simon, instead, is saving Edna for bigger things. What really drives Mel to the edge, and then off it, is staying home while Edna goes back to work to keep the household running. The paranoia pouring forth from talk radio, even before the advent of the right-wing blowhards, is more than Mel’s slender sanity can bear. He plunges into a nervous breakdown, at which time Edna calls in Mel’s family to see what can be done. Much as Sharpe’s Mel, with Kenneson’s support as Edna, has been sparking laughter through all the grief, the comic highlight of The Prisoner of Second Avenue comes in the second act with the Edison family council, set two months after Mel’s collapse. Mel was the baby of the family and his siblings range up to the eldest, chronically scowling Pauline (Marcia Mele), and two go-along to getalong sisters, Jessie (Jenn DeCook) and Pearl (Pamela Kelley). Completely unanticipated is another brother dragging his own emotional baggage. Tall, well-dressed Harry Edison (Jimmy Curtin) is clearly a business success, but his constant pacing as he speaks signals his deep discomfort. Another kvetcher, Harry lays his old hurts before the ensemble. In 31 years no one ever sang him “Happy Birthday,” and the sisters keep offering him coffee, forgetting that he hates the stuff. Edna pleads the case for her loving husband. Mel’s a mess and pretty much unemployable, but he might pull through if he could break out on his own, like running a summer camp

If everyone chipped in, he could start with a down payment of: $25,000! Although Prisoner is filled with experienced people and familiar faces, it still marks a departure for several. It’s a debut for director Tina Lee, long associated as a performer with Rarely Done Productions. She appears to have a confident relationship with lead Robb Sharpe, who delivers perhaps 66 percent of the lines. Together they keep a steady hand on the tone, which always threatens to slip into the grim or bathetic. The role of Mel is a huge step forward for Sharpe, who has a long list of distinguished supporting roles, especially as the abused prisoner in The Exonerated (October 2011). The original on-stage Mel was the shortish, ethnic Peter Falk, and Sharpe’s interpretation hews closer to that version, refuting the tall, Harvard-educated Jack Lemmon’s incarnation in the 1975 movie. Sharpe’s successes can be measured in the laughs he gets from unfunny lines, like the flippant crack about the death of his psychiatrist, and that he can still get the audience on his side for the cockamamie plan at the end. Jimmy Curtin’s Harry is so good he starts to steal the production from Sharpe. Aileen Kenneson’s Edna is the sanest, most generous character in the play. Marcia Mele has never been better as the ogreish Pauline, while Jenn DeCook and Pamela Kelley define differences in the sisters. C.J. Young’s production design includes doors that slam on the tasteful set appropriate for Mel’s income. And Susan Basile’s costumes remind us that 88th and Second Avenue is a fashionable neighborhood. o

Not the Children’s Hour Le Moyne students tackle childhood woes in The Fourth Graders Present An Unnamed Love-Suicide By James MacKillop

P

laywright Sean Graney’s longish title, The Fourth Graders Present An Unnamed Love-Suicide, contains different messages and could easily be misinterpreted. The setting is in a brightly lit parochial school, where all the students wear gray sweaters, with the boys in ties and the girls in tartan skirts. In this Boot and Buskin Theatre Group production, running through Saturday, Feb. 22, at Le Moyne College, all the performers are college age, affecting to move and talk like 9-year-olds. At first it feels faux naïf, but is soon revealed to be something more sinister. As the action begins we get more mixed signals, although we cannot know if they come from Graney’s script or innovative director Matt Chiorini. A concerned parent (Christi Frateschi) steps forward from the front row in the non-proscenium Panasci Chapel to tell us what we are about to see. It invites us to think that the show is about reality, like an ABC After-School Special. All the while, a student (Joe Bates) has been standing alone on the stage, grimacing like a child forced to perform against his will. As others come aboard, he goes to stage left where he takes up a collection of instruments, some percussion and a recorder. His playing is not just the background but a punctuation of the action. Although he never speaks a word, Bates is cited in the program as “The Chorus,” which we remember is also a convention in Japan’s kabuki theater. We get into the meat of the conflict quickly. The presentation of the fourth graders mourns the loss of Johnny (Ryan Bannen), who recently shot himself. Before ending it all, he composed a play detailing the pain, misery and folly in those last hours. They are performing the show, playing themselves. Johnny was not always a victim, and he knew some moments of respite. He feels sweetly toward the excruciatingly shy Rachel (Jessie Gherardi), who suffers an eating disorder and feels rejected by other students because of her perceived weight problem. When she offers Johnny a box of fruit juice, he gracelessly complains that it’s too warm. Worse, he jumps to attention when offered a cold juice box by the flirtatious and popular Sally (Kelly Stier). Her equally high-status sidekick Brenda (Katie McAninch) recom-

mends the importance of competition to determine who will be known as superior. Sally’s feint at Johnny provokes her boyfriend Mike Rice (Nick Jarmak). In absolute candor (perhaps another kabuki device), Mike announces that he is a bully at his entrance and provides a mock explanation of his motivation from Psychology 101: “I do not like people. They hurt me.” He’s going to do the hurting here, however, and starts in on the innocent, deeply vulnerable Rachel by cutting off her pigtails, which she feels are her only assets. Sally is not the only girl to smile at Johnny. The hall monitor in a safety patrol belt, Lucy Law (Kimberly Grader), comes on to him. But she’s ready to shed her impartiality (the “law”) to be accepted by the mean girls. Increasingly, we become aware of Graney’s stylized language. Characters tend to avoid contractions, just as Damon Runyon’s gamblers do. There are also malapropisms that do not invite humor. Johnny says, “I do not deserve the yellow cake of your love for me.” When Fourth Graders premiered in 2003, Graney surely expected that audiences would remember “yellow cake” from George W. Bush’s infamous citation of the atomic weapons that were not there. The citation of the name “Sally” invites a comparison with Charles Schulz’s Peanuts characters, or perhaps Bert V. Royal’s spoof of Peanuts, Dog Sees God. Schulz’s lasting innovation was to put the anxieties of adults in the mouths of children. Thus, some wag said that Peanuts is the Waiting for Godot of comic strips. Graney reverses that equation. The grief and despair his characters exhibit is that of real children: tender, weak and vulnerable, like the kids who kill themselves after storms of bullying. Fourth Graders is, instead, a Beckett play affecting to look like a comic strip, but in a kabuki package. Completing the kabuki motif on scenic designer Karel Blakeley’s harsh white set is a thrown bolt of scarlet cloth, the bloodbath. Playwright Sean Graney, founder of the ill-named Hypocrites Theater Company, has been a legend on the Chicago scene. This is his first work to be seen in our part of the world. o

owboy Junkies’ songs are beautiful and ethereal, or gritty and dark, with Margo Timmins’ angelic, sometimes haunting vocals floating over the melodies. The Canadian band’s 1988 album, The Trinity Session, also lives on as one of the best of its time. More than 20 years later, however, the group is still searching for new ways to keep the music fresh. The band, which also includes guitarist Michael Timmins, drummer Peter Timmins and bassist Alan Anton, will perform at Ithaca’s Hangar Theatre on Wednesday, Feb. 26. The concert will combine new songs as well as a complete performance of The Trinity Session. Anton reveals what it’s like to keep going after more than two decades, what it’s like to be in a family band and why not to take advice from anybody.

Tell me about your latest project, The Kennedy Suite.

One of our friends from high school kept in touch with Scott Garbe, a grade school teacher obsessed with the Kennedy assassination his whole life. He was writing them {the songs} for 15 years and put them on a record. He gave the songs to our friend about six years ago and suggested we work on them. We were handed a package of photos and stories above

Still Riding High Cowboy Junkies visit Ithaca after more than 20 years on the road By Jessica Novak each individual song with the demo of Scott singing and playing guitar. It took us a bit of time to get people in to work on it, as each song is a different perspective and therefore needs a different singer. That’s what took so long. But with the 50th anniversary {of the assassination} we had to do it.

Had you been interested in the Kennedy assassination prior to this?

We’re all of the age that it affected our families for sure and, residually, us. It re-enters the media every few years, so we’ve been dealing our whole lives. These songs were such a fresh approach to the whole thing, a wideeyed look into possibilities of “what if.”

What possessed you to do a four-record set?

I think we went into our next record {Nomad} with what would have been two records, so a double CD. The type of material we had were separable entities. Then our friend {Vic Chesnutt} passed away {Dec. 25, 2009} and we wanted to do a record of his material, a third album of all his songs interpreted by us. That came out of nowhere. So, three records in the works and then we realized we wanted to round up with Wilderness, so a four-record set done in 18 months.

That is a vicious pace.

It is the pace. It just depends what’s going on. Something like Vic passing away just gave us an impetus to do it and we did in a few months. It’s about Syracuse New Times

www.syracusenewtimes.com

It’s funny when you all have families, you think you’ll slow down, relax. But it hasn’t been the case for us. We still really want to play music all the time. No one’s sat back and said, “I want to sit back.” As long as that keeps up we’ll keep going as long as people want to see us.

Three of them are family and I’ve been with them since kindergarten, so even when we started we’d known each other a long time. There have never been ego problems, none of those normal band problems. We’ve kept each other in check for years and stayed friends for years. And the family dynamic is a good thing, even though it’s usually bad. Everybody stays on the same path.

We finished that up a few years ago. It’s a four-record set and we’ve been touring that. There’s a lot we wanted to play live. We’re still doing that while promoting the Kennedy thing and we’re working on the next record now. We’re just at different stages of different things. Our live performances are gonna be a scrapbook of where we’re at.

all the circumstances and how we’re feeling, what music is swirling around. Mike had just gone to China before the Nomad series, so he had ideas for what would become the first record in the set, his experiences in China.

What advice do you have for aspiring musicians?

Musically, don’t take any advice from anybody. Do your thing. Do what feels right. And get yourself out there and get noticed. It’s all up to you. The problem I’ve seen with great budding artists is that they have no traction. They don’t have the personality to self-promote. They’re great at what they do musically, but people have to help them and recognize the talent. Some can do it themselves. Figuring out what tools to use these days is tough. Record companies won’t come knocking on your door anymore. Figuring out the personality you are is crucial, if you can do both: music/creative and business. If you can’t, get some help. o

Keys to the Kingdom The organic rock of Hammond Jammin’ returns for its 10th anniversary Sunday at the Dinosaur

T

By Jessica Novak

he Hammond B3 organ is one of the most distinctive and powerful instruments in popular music. It’s also one that is widely overlooked, however, and rarely played given its massive size and weight. But for the last decade, B3 maestro Gerry Testa has put together a local day of celebration for the big instrument with the even bigger sound: Hammond Jammin’. This year’s 10th anniversary event takes place Sunday, Feb. 23, noon to 6 p.m., at the Upstairs at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, 246 W. Willow St. It’s one of the final drawing cards at the annual Syracuse Winterfest and will feature local B3 players including Testa, Steve Schad, Paulie Scire, Bill Barry, Michael Davis, Jimmy Cox and Dave Solazzo. The idea for Hammond Jammin’ came from a pure desire to have the organ heard. “There are lots of guitar shows and harmonica blow-offs and stuff,” Testa says. “But keys players don’t get a lot of recognition and I just wanted to do something a little different.” Testa has played in and around the area for 45 years, making music with groups including Hard Copy, Exposure and Dr. Mojo. Being part of the scene has also exposed him to other great players he’s featured at Hammond Jammin’ over the years. He notes that Davis has performed in all 10 editions and Cox has participated in at least five. “Jimmy {Cox} is kind of like the godfather of B3 around town,” Testa says.

The event features different B3 players and bands of their choosing. Cox’s lineup is especially unusual, as all but one member of the band are part of his family. Cox is slated to gig with his son, guitarist Mike; his daughter, vocalist Ashley; his son-in-law, guitarist Shawn Sullivan; drummer Frank Neubert; and possibly Chloe, Cox’s vocalist granddaughter. “My dad insisted, ‘I want my family to play with me,’” says Ashley Cox, who has her own band, Professional Victims. “My dad is so gracious; he lets us all pick a song and we rework them for organ. It makes for an eclectic set.” The group has done everything from Talking Heads to Tom Petty to Florence and the Machine in the few years they’ve participated together. “It’s such a great feeling, it’s hard to believe sometimes,” he says. “We have such a blast rehearsing. It’s a real pleasure to play with my kids and it’s nice for me to get to play a B3 once a year.” Cox is still active in the scene, playing weekly with various musicians, including his daughter. “I’m having a blast and I feel lucky to still be playing with a lot of great musicians,” he says. “It’s diverse, everyone from John Rohde to Maria DeSantis.” Ashley Cox beams at the prospect of joining her father on stage. “My dad has been featured since the 1960s and 1970s in bands,” she says. “And my whole family comes out for this {Hammond Jammin’}. My 93-year-old grandma will be right

Testa also enjoys being surprised by the acts. “I tell them, ‘It’s your show. Bring who you want, do what you want,’” he says. “It’s always fun and always turns into a big party. And for the most part, I find out what they’re playing when they play it. I never know what they’ll do.”

He notes that he was especially blown away by one of the Cox family’s choices. “One year Jimmy and Ashley played a Beyonce song and it blew me away,” he says. “They played ‘Halo’ and it sounded so good. It’s not a Hammond song, but the way they did it was awesome. The vocals were right on. That was a great Hammond moment for me.” o

Too Close for Comfort It’s been a thrilling February, but will the Orange be good enough come March? By Matt Michael

MICHAEL DAVIS PHOTOS

ith a school-record 25 consecutive wins, the No. 1 ranking in the country and three of the most dramatic wins you’ll ever see in a recent two-week span, the Syracuse University men’s basketball team is on a roll unlike any other in the program’s 114-year history. But as far as head coach Jim Boeheim is concerned, the Orange hasn’t done anything yet. And in many ways, the Hall of Fame coach is right on, as usual. Over the next two and a half weeks, the Orange will face the most difficult part of its schedule, with road games against No. 8 Duke, Maryland, No. 17 Virginia, and Florida State among its final six regular-season games. And then SU will play in its first Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament, followed by the only tourney that really matters: the NCAA Tournament. So while SU fans are dreaming of a perfect season, Boeheim is focused on making improvements, because as crazy as this might sound, the Orange will have to play better to have a strong finish and make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. The final leg of the season starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, when the Orange hosts Boston College at the Carrier Dome in the second-tolast home game of the season. “I think we have to look at the facts, which is we have the toughest part of our schedule ahead,” Boeheim said after the Orange survived against North Carolina State Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Carrier Dome. “You don’t get any trophies that matter in the regular season. The only thing that matters is what you do at the end of the year, the real end of the year. If we can use these next six games to get better, play better basketball, I think that will be helpful.” Lost in the last-second drama of the recent Pittsburgh and North Carolina State games is that SU’s offense has been sluggish since the Orange’s thrilling 91-89 overtime win against Duke Feb. 1 at the Dome. SU’s defense has remained solid, thanks to the stellar play of center Rakeem Christmas, who should get help soon when backup center Baye Moussa Keita returns from a knee injury. Against Pitt Feb. 12, the Orange shot just 38 percent from the floor and 56 percent from the foul line, but the team was bailed out by C.J. Fair’s clutch jumpers in the closing minutes and Tyler Ennis’ desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer that gave SU an improbable 58-56 win. Against NC State, the Orange shot 35 percent from the floor as Fair, the team’s leading scorer, made only five of 16 attempts. But the defense forced two late Wolfpack turnovers, and a goaltending call on Fair’s sure layup in the closing seconds lifted SU to a 56-55 triumph.

North Carolina nail-biter: Under the constant watch of Coach Jim Boeheim (center), Orangemen Trevor Cooney (top) and Tyler Ennis (left) kept the Feb. 15 game mighty interesting; meanwhile on the sidelines, Miss America, aka Nina Davuluri (right), enjoyed some hang time with SU athletic director Daryl Gross. “We need to be better offensively if we want to have a great ending,” Boeheim said. “We’ve played the easiest games of our schedule. The next six games will be much harder, particularly the four out of five road games we have at the end of the year.”

Syracuse New Times

www.syracusenewtimes.com

Boeheim said the Orange offense is at its best when freshman point guard Ennis and sophomore shooting guard Trevor Cooney are scoring. But against North Carolina State, Cooney shot 3-for-10 (2-of-6 from 3-point range), while Ennis also shot 3-for-10 with five assists and four turnovers, which tied a season high.

When Ennis was whistled for a charge with 14.9 seconds remaining against the Wolfpack and SU trailing 55-54, it was his first turnover in the last minute of a game this season. “Down the stretch we weren’t good, and you go down the stretch with too many games like we have had, you’re going to have some of those games where you don’t make good plays,” Boeheim said. “{Saturday} was that game, and we were able to make a couple of good {defensive} plays finally toward the end there and one big {defensive} play at the end.” That big defensive play—a Cooney and Jerami Grant trap that led to a Christmas steal that led to Fair’s game-winner—was the latest example of why this team has been able to overcome its off nights. “We kept fighting,” Fair said. “We got a couple of key turnovers that we needed for us to win the game. It’s not the ideal win, but we’ll take it.” The Orange players know they are a few plays away from having lost two or three games in the last few weeks. After the NC State game, in which they came out flat and pretty much stayed that way, the players said they need to make sure the games don’t come down to the final seconds. “We do find a way to win, and we find a way to make plays toward the end,” Cooney said. “But you just can’t come out and say, ‘OK, if it goes down to the end, we’re going to win because that’s what we do.’ You’ve got to come ready to play, and you have to make the plays early.” Then again, the Orange is learning what it takes to win close games, and you know there’s going to be one or two of those at tournament time. “Whether it’s by one, 10 or 20 points, we have to fight through it, and as long as we’re winning games, I’m happy,” Ennis said. “You really don’t want to have as many close games as we’ve had, but if that’s what it takes to make us better, then that’s what we have to do.” Clearly, Boeheim feels the Orange has to get better with the meat of its conference schedule looming. While he said he’s proud of the way his team has reacted in close games, he also said that 25-0 record is somewhat misleading. “I feel like we played about well enough to be 20-5,” he said. “I think that’s really what we are. We haven’t played better than that. “That was a tough week we just got through,” Boeheim added, referring to three games in six days against Clemson, Pitt and North Carolina State. “This is a tougher next three games coming up {against Boston College, Duke and Maryland}. That’s how you get better.” o

Some suggestions for something different at area slopes By Scott Launt

F

ebruary is more than half over, it’s winter break for many schools in the area and the Winter Gods have provided some much-needed snow cover for us in Central New York. Here are a few suggestions: Try something different, be it a ski area, downhill method or snow-sport venue. Bristol Mountain: Located just west of Canandaigua Lake, about an 85-mile, two-hour drive, this resort offers up 1,200 feet of vertical. Six lifts, two of which are high-speed detachable quads, one fixed-grip quad, one fixed-grip triple, one fixed-grip double chair, and a Magic Carpet conveyor lift await. It’s modern, well maintained and equipped, having 34 trails; more than two-thirds are beginner and intermediate. Can’t get there for first tracks? That’s OK, as Bristol offers an eight-hour twilight pass. McCauley Mountain: Located in Old Forge, about a 100-mile, two-hour trek, McCauley is a friendly throwback to the 1980s in look and feel, probably because it’s run by the town. Don’t let the rather

small stature fool you, because there are trails there that will kick your ass. Those moguls under the chair on Helmer’s aren’t necessarily just bumps: They are snow-covered boulders! On the way home, check out the Old Forge Hardware, or grab a burger and a cold Utica Club at the TOW Bar. If the Paul Case Band is playing there, get a room and stay the night. Or for an outstanding Italian meal in town, go to Billy’s (yes, it’s Italian) and try the veal. Should you stay overnight, breakfast at Walt’s Diner, where bacon is a main course, spice or a topping, is a must. DANGER! Get out of town before mud season. If not, your Buick won’t get pulled out until late April.

Time to get your team looking their best in great performance gear.

Bond’s

Market New Times theater critic James MacKillop places the tenure of producing artistic director Timothy Bond into the 40-year history of Syracuse Stage

Bond arrived from the West Coast in September 2007, the third year of the Nancy Cantor chancellorship. He has said from the beginning that Cantor’s vision of SU’s relationship to the community was primary in his finding the Syracuse position attractive. Her continued support of Bond’s work encouraged him to try new plays that otherwise might have difficulty reaching an audience, such as Wajdi Mouawad’s drama Scorched last fall and David Henry Hwang’s comedy Chinglish, opening in late February. Smiles from the chancellor’s office allowed Bond to achieve one of the happiest moments of his time with Syracuse Stage, when he took his production of Tarell Alvin McCrany’s The Brothers Size to the Baxter Theatre of Cape Town and the Market Theatre of Johannesburg, South Africa. The current mission statement for Syracuse Stage speaks of aspiring to a global village square. As writer Walt Wasilewski pointed out in the Dec. 12 Syracuse New Times cover story,

classics to be reinterpreted. Like the Ontario fest, Ashland is not limited to works by the Bard. While there Bond directed one Shakespeare comedy, Twelfth Night, but he appears to have been the go-to man for works by African-American playwrights, such as Pearle Cleage’s Blues for an Alabama Sky, Suzan-Lori Parks’ Top Dog/Under Dog, Lorraine Hansberry’s Les Blancs, and several items by August Wilson, The Piano Lesson, Jitney and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, reprised as his first Wilson effort at Syracuse Stage (September 2008). While in Ashland, Bond became personally acquainted with playwright Wilson, and then some. During a three-hour interview, Bond was usually intent, looking the listener squarely in the eyes, but he became his most sanguine and animated when speaking of shared time with August Wilson. Bond remembers being recognized and called to from a distance, and being welcomed with a bear hug. Later Wilson also conferred with Bond about plays he was

Sometimes we learned how different the two theaters were. A prime case was Bridget Carpenter’s Up (March 2009) about a daydreamy loser who tied balloons to a Sears lawn chair in order to rise 16,000 feet into the air. The show was a hit in Ashland but was poorly received here by audiences and critics. Imported from Ashland to direct Up was director Penny Metropulos, who has become a frequent visitor. She later helmed Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile (November 2009), Lisa Peterson’s An Iliad (May 2013) and John Logan’s Red (March 2012). An impassioned essay on creativity as seen in the life of modernist painter Mark Rothko, Red was one of the most admired plays of the last three years. Joseph Graves, who appeared in both Red and An Iliad, has worldwide connections but had also appeared in Ashland. Influence from Oregon of a different kind came in the person of 39-year-old director Bill Fennelly, who was in charge of the effervescent production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (March 2013), this year’s Syracuse New Times Syracuse Area Live Theater (SALT) winner and the most dazzling Shakespeare performance in the history of Syracuse Stage. As a co-production with the SU Drama Department, Dream gained mightily from the contributions of faculty choreographer Anthony Salatino, not to mention the cream of the current drama students. For tricky, key roles Fennelly called on Ashland veterans William Langan as Duke Egeus and John Prybil as an uproarious Bottom. Fennelly enjoyed extensive Broadway and off-Broadway

credits, but somehow it felt that his finesse and sense of adventure derived from his having been a directing fellow in Ashland. The benign influences from the Oregon festival aside, Bond unmistakably had some bumps in his period of adjustment to audiences in moving from the comfy confines of an arts festival to the show-me demands of theatergoers in a Northeastern Rust Belt city. Not that Syracusans are hicks by any means. Even though Syracuse is the smallest and least affluent of the three upstate metro areas with regional theaters, the others being Albany’s Capital Repertory and Rochester’s GeVa (excluding Buffalo’s now-defunct Area Stage), local audiences have long been the most sophisticated. No longer a “factory town,” Syracuse’s biggest employers are SU and the hospitals, which have drawn well-educated and well-traveled people to live here. Some of the lowest points in Bond’s tenure came in the first season in which he controlled the agenda, 2008 to 2009. Things began well enough with Bond’s direction of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom in September, but the run had just begun when gloomy events on the national scene affected everyone in the arts and the entire economy. Lehman Brothers collapsed Sept. 15, leading to a deep market plunge. Some of Bond’s most enticing plans with Cantor were put on hold. Closer to home, the hiring of new assistant associate director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj paid dreary dividends. In Maharaj’s conception for the John-Michael Teberak-Stephen Schwartz chestnut Godspell, slated for the December holiday slot, the Jesus (Anwar Robinson) of the Gospels had been transformed into a secular United Nations soldier in a sky blue beret. The familiar score (“Day by Day,” “Beautiful City”) had acquired an Afro-Caribbean beat.

Syracuse New Times

www.syracusenewtimes.com

Very few Syracuse Stage patrons are evangelical Christians, who likely found this Godspell blasphemous, but many people found the show’s greatest sin to be artistic. Worse, Bond himself had to step in to trim Maharaj’s sprawling length. It was the most poorly received holiday show since Robert Moss and Anthony Salatino launched the hugely beneficial collaboration with SU Drama in 1999. This would also be the season of Bridget Carpenter’s regrettable Up, but before that Maharaj had more mischief to deliver. His casting of the Stephen Sondheim review Putting It Together (January 2009) featured some superlative voices, such as Chuck Cooper and Lillias White, but his handling of the singers offended more than Sondheim’s notoriously picky admirers. Instead of angst-ridden privileged New Yorkers, players came on like the cast of Married with Children in formal wear. Two other productions, both happier occasions, would help to set the tone of the Bond era and also tell audiences where his artistic heart lies. The first was Regina Taylor’s high-spirited Crowns (May 2009), based on a coffee-table book of photographs of the extravagant, high-rise hats Southern black women have long worn to church services. The slight plot resembled 5 Guys Named Moe with genders reversed. A skeptical youngster from the North learns to respect the exuberant music of the pre-civil rights South. Featured songs were actually quite well-remembered and easy to embrace by general audiences: “Wade in the Water,” “That’s All Right,” “His Eye is on the Sparrow,” and, inevitably, “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Production values greatly enhanced Crowns’ appeal, beginning with Reggie Ray’s florid costumes, Felix E. Cochran’s scenic designs and Jennifer Setlow’s lighting. The transformative personality in the production was that of director-choreographer Patdro Harris, making the first of several appearances here. Among the first of Bond-favored directors, after Penny Metropulos, Harris brought an anthropologist’s knowledge of African-American and also African kinesthetics as well as a dazzling visual sense. He would later help Africanize McCraney’s The Brothers Size (April 2012), a play staged with grim realism elsewhere, and one of Bond’s signal achievements. Crowns was the second production that season with a mostly black cast, after the previous September’s Ma Rainey. In all other respects the shows had nothing in common and represented entirely different theatrical experiences. It was a way of showing that if Tim Bond was going to produce works close to his own heritage, they would come with different faces and say different things. Ma Rainey, a landmark, is one of the most critically acclaimed dramas of the past 40 years, and is widely produced. Crowns is stylish light entertain-

ment, much associated with Princeton’s McCarter Theater, managing director Jeffrey Woodward’s previous home base. While it is neither political nor threatening, neither is it patronizing nor overly sweet.

The Directors’ Chair

A producing artistic director should not be asked his personal tastes and priorities at the door. Arthur Storch, who came of age artistically in the 1930s, began and ended his time here with plays by Clifford Odets, Waiting for Lefty and Awake and Sing, as well as producing John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men twice. Robert Moss had been a professional associate of Edward Albee, and his Syracuse Stage tenure produced Three Tall Women and a revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Bond’s approach differs greatly from Syracuse Stage’s other African-American producing director, Tazewell Thompson, 1992 to 1996. Thompson never produced an August Wilson drama, the only one of four artistic CEOs not to. He also found it difficult to connect with audience tastes, especially with African-American projects. The exception was the return appearance of Thompson’s own Constant Star (October 2004), an upbeat celebration of the life of crusading journalist Ida B. Wells. It wowed audiences and won a SALT Award. What the two men have in common is a flair for opera. After leaving Syracuse, Thompson directed in two dozen of the world’s leading opera houses, including Milan’s La Scala, and helmed a Porgy and Bess on PBS that was nominated for an Emmy Award. Timothy Bond’s experience with opera has been post-modern. He was assistant director to Peter Sellars for the world premiere of John Adams’ Death of Klinghoffer at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, repeated in Vienna and Brussels. Earlier in the spring of Crowns came a production that more emphatically contrasts Bond’s tastes and talents with those of the other three men who have held his position. When he announced a revival of The Diary of Anne Frank (April 2009), more than a few subscribers groaned that the drama of the Dutch girl’s confinement has long since worn out its welcome through overproduction. In scheduling, however, Bond took heed of the rancorous controversy over tampering with Anne Frank’s legacy and the displeasure that many Jewish intellectuals, most prominently Cynthia Ozick, had with Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett’s 1955 stage drama. The complaint was that Goodrich and Hackett, who also worked with Frank Capra on It’s a Wonderful Life, had both sweetened the story and made it more ethnically generic rather than specifically Jewish. To take a new direction, Bond used the revised text by Wendy Kesselman. Startling differences emerged immediately. The continued on next page

Bond Franks and the others are forced to wear the sewn-on yellow star. Anne (Arielle Lever), far from being a saint, asserts her emerging sexuality and resents her mother. Her sometimes abrasive hoydenish antics grate on the patience of the other residents, and we’re inclined to sympathize with them. A signature of Bond’s direction is that listeners must be as expressive as speakers, and their response boosts tension. More than in any other production, we feel how claustrophobic that hiding place was. The most striking departures in the production were director Bond’s call, rather than emphases from Kesselman’s text. When we get to Anne’s famous lines about hope, the most quoted of all her words, they are in voiceover: “I believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” The thunder of jackboots on the stairs nearly drowns her out, and we have to struggle to hear her. Following this, Bond has Anne’s father Otto Frank (Joel Leffert) spell out in tears what happened to the denizens of the hidden room. The Holocaust is, of course, already one of the best remembered events in World War II, but a live speaker enables audiences to sense the horror in a way that a statistic or blackand-white photograph might not: the extinction of the flawed people whose time we have just shared. From reports Bond was deeply empathetic to Leffert’s performance, and when speaking of the rehearsals nearly five years later at a table in Phoebe’s, emotion still flushes his voice. The Goodrich-Hackett Anne Frank is a worthy high school literature assignment encouraging students to accept tolerance. The Kesselman-Bond Anne Frank matched the director’s highest criterion for the theater as articulated in his 2007 Syracuse New Times interview: to provoke dialogue about our place in the world. Two patterns in presentation flow from the Anne Frank model. One is that very familiar works, especially when they look like comfort food for audiences, will be reimagined and treated as if they are startling and new. Among these are William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker, directed by Paul Barnes (March 2011); Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, directed by Barnes and choreographed by David Wanstreet (December 2012); and, most arresting of all, A Christmas Carol, directed by Peter Amster (December 2013). As for shows that provoke dialogue about our place in the world, such might be said about many popular productions that could be seen in almost any regional theater because they’re proven

More pertinent to Bond’s ideal was the production of Nilaja Sun’s No Child. . . (September 2010), with Bond himself directing, about the struggles of an idealistic drama teacher (Reenah L. Golden) in a hardscrabble inner-city school. By staging a play about convict settlers in early Australia, the dregs of the Empire, she transformed the lives of her desperate students. Despite the importance Bond placed on No Child . . . , he knew it would never have the appeal of Rent or Red, and so it was staged before the regular season began in the smaller, remodeled Storch Theatre. Other selections supporting Bond’s ideal would include Tom Griffin’s comedy about a group home, The Boys Next Door (October 2011), directed by Bond, and David Lindsay-Abaire’s class-conscious comedy-drama Good People (March 2013), directed by Laura Kepley. Less successfully, seeking dialogue about our place in the world also brought us two Ping Chong premieres: Tales from the Salt City (October 2008) and Cry for Peace: Voices from the Congo (September 2012). Both works employed original voices, but they suffered from the compiler’s lockstep, one-size-fits-all dramaturgy.

Pitt Stop

The culmination of Timothy Bond’s tastes and artistic ideals is, of course, his commitment to stage all 10 of August Wilson’s Century Cycle of dramas. Nine of them, excluding Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, are set in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, the most prominent black neighborhood, one for each decade of the 20th century. The plays were written out of

chronological order between 1985 and Wilson’s death in 2005, and all of them stand well on their own. Despite the preponderance of local references, Wilson is never parochial, always seeking the universal in the particular. The focus is on black history, with recurring characters and themes, with touches of magic realism, but it’s a world white audiences may enter and immediately orient themselves. Past racial injustice may come up (how could it not?), but playgoers do not suffer finger-pointing for the past sins of the majority culture. Wilson’s critical reputation, including two Pulitzer Prizes, is secure and does not need a boost from Syracuse; several other cities have already staged all 10 plays, with Seattle, Boston, Pittsburgh and Rochester’s GeVa placing them in chronological order. Few American dramatists have given us 10 plays that ticket-buyers would still want to see in toto. Certainly not Eugene O’Neill and probably not the mid-century giants Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. Wilson’s important contemporaries, Sam Shepard and David Mamet, have been in decline recently. For quality alone, Bond is making a strong case with Wilson, if not greater than the others, then more consistent. When Bond is asked why he has the commitment to Wilson he cites the personal connection, the shared conversations, the assurances of trust, especially as experienced in Ashland. It is also unmistakable that the director brings an authority over the different rhythms of urban speech and the demotic poetry. Even though Bond is the son of a college president and a graduate of Howard University, he knows the angst and the gaiety of characters at every social level. Director Bond has a light touch for the characteristic wise fools in Wilson plays, who are often quite funny but can

babble so that many other characters dismiss them, until we know they’re speaking deep truths. But the director can also endow tragic figures, such as Troy Maxson in Fences, with resonant moral weight. Bond has presented four Wilsons in his time here. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (September 2008), reprised from Ashland, bristles with the razzle-dazzle of a rules-breaking young playwright. We have to learn that we care not so much about the fabled jazz singer of the title but rather the forgotten musicians, seen on a lower stage, who backed her up. Radio Golf (February 2011), set in the 1990s, is often ranked lower among the 10 because the themes of affluence and gentrification were new to the playwright’s world, and also because he was literally on his deathbed when he was trying to finish it. Nonetheless, Tony-winning actor Thomas Jefferson Byrd gave an electrifying performance, with as brilliant a monologue as can be found in any of these four. Two Trains Running (February 2013), set near the time of the Malcolm X and Martin Luther King assassinations, was a drama rich in intellectual and political conflict. Actor G. Valmont Thomas, yet another Ashland alumnus, soared to the heights. Which leads to Fences (May 2010), often cited as the top of the 10 plays. In reviving it Bond was inviting comparison to the March 1991 Syracuse Stage production, led by director Claude Purdy, a close friend of Wilson’s and usually thought to be one of his prime interpreters. That might have been two decades earlier, but some of us took notes and have refreshed our memories. The Purdy version suffered from projection problems, with many players speaking in heavy street accents that could not be discerned 10 rows into the audience. Purdy’s Troy, the distinguished stage actor John Henry Redwood, played the garbage man as a wounded giant. With James A. Williams as Troy, Bond’s version shook off the legacy of mellifluous James Earl Jones to give us a hero of low social station but raging with imposing strength. Like so many great dramas, Fences is a family story, spelled out in Troy’s wrenching conflicts with his wife (Kim Staunton) and sons (José A. Rufino and Stephen Tyrone Williams). Bond’s Fences was not only more powerful than Purdy’s, it is his peak moment as a director in the last six and a half years. At age 55 Timothy Bond is now at home in Syracuse. When asked what he has learned about what local audiences really like, he smiles and itemizes a short list. For last fall’s productions, Blithe Spirit, Scorched and A Christmas Carol, he scored a bull’s eye each time. And subscriptions are up for the spring. o

 PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) From 2010 to 2012, Eric Garcetti worked as an actor

on the TV cop shows The Closer and its spinoff series Major Crimes. He played the mayor of Los Angeles. Then in 2013, he ran for the office of L.A.’s mayor in real life, and won. It was a spectacular example of Kurt Vonnegut’s suggestion that we tend to become what we pretend to be. Your assignment, Pisces, is to make good use of this principle. I invite you to experiment with pretending to be the person you would like to turn into.  ARIES (March 21-April 19) A woman from New Mexico wrote to tell me that after reading my horoscopes for three years in the Santa Fe Reporter, she had decided to stop. “I changed my beliefs,” she said. “I no longer resonate with your philosophy.” On the one hand, I was sad that I had lost a reader. On the other hand, I admired her for being able to transform her beliefs, and also for taking practical action to enforce her shift in perspective. That’s the kind of purposeful metamorphosis I recommend for you, Aries. What ideas are you ready to shed? What theories no longer explain the nature of life to your satisfaction? Be ruthless in cutting away the thoughts that no longer work for you.

 TAURUS (April 20-May 20) In Arthurian legend, Camelot

we all periodically make this statement: “Every decision I make is a choice between a grievance and a miracle. I relinquish all regrets, grievances and resentments, and choose the miracle.” Is that too New Age for you, Virgo? I hope you can drop any prejudices you might have about it and simply make it your own. It’s the precise formula you need to spin this week’s events in the right direction -- working for you rather than against you.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) In the savannas of Africa, waterholes are crucial for life. During the rainy season, there are enough to go around for every animal species to drink and bathe in comfortably. But the dry season shrinks the size and number of the waterholes. The impala may have to share with the hippopotamus, the giraffe with the warthog. Let’s use this as a metaphor to speculate about your future. I’m guessing that the dry season will soon be arriving in your part of the world. The waterholes may dwindle. But that could ultimately prove to be a lucky development, because it will bring you into contact with interesting life forms you might not have otherwise met. Unexpected new alliances could emerge.

was the castle where King Arthur held court and ruled his kingdom. It housed the Round Table, where Arthur’s knights congregated for important events. Until recently, I had always imagined that the table was relatively small and the number of knights few. But then I discovered that several old stories say there was enough room for 150 knights. It wasn’t an exclusive, elitist group. I suspect you will experience a similar evolution, Taurus. You may be wishing you could become part of a certain circle, but assume it’s too exclusive or selective to welcome you as a member. I suspect it’s more receptive and inclusive than you think.

 GEMINI (May 21-June 20) The renowned Lakota medicine man Sitting Bull (1831-1890) wasn’t

born with that name. For the first years of his life he was known as Jumping Badger. His father renamed him when he was a teenager after he demonstrated exceptional courage in battle. I’d like to see you consider a similar transition in the coming months, Gemini. You’re due to add some gravitas to your approach. The tides of destiny are calling you to move more deliberately and take greater care with the details. Are you willing to experiment with being solid and stable? The more willing you are to assume added responsibility, the more interesting that responsibility is likely to be.

 CANCER (June 21-July 22) The English noun “offing” refers to the farthest reach of the ocean

that is still visible as you stand on the beach. It’s a good symbol for something that is at a distance from you and yet still within view. I suggest that you take a long, thoughtful look at the metaphorical offing that’s visible from where you stand. You’ll be wise to identify what’s looming for you in the future so you can start working to ensure you will get the best possible version of it.

 LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) A large plaster Buddha statue was housed at a modest temple in Bangkok,

Thailand, from 1935 to 1955. No one knew its age or origins. In May 1955, workers were struggling to move the heavy 10-foot icon to a new building on the temple grounds when it accidentally broke free of the ropes that secured it. As it hit the ground, a chunk of plaster fell off, revealing a sheen of gold beneath. Religious leaders authorized the removal of the remaining plaster surface. Hidden inside was a solid gold Buddha that is today worth $250 million. Research later revealed that the plaster had been applied by 18th-century monks to prevent the statue from being looted. I foresee a comparable sequence unfolding in the coming weeks for you, Leo. What will it take to free a valuable resource that’s concealed within a cheap veneer?

 SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) In his book The Storytelling

Animal: How Stories Make Us Human, literary scholar Jonathan Gottschall muses on the crucial role that imagination plays in our lives. “{The} average daydream is about 14 seconds long and {we} have about 2,000 of them per day,” he says. “In other words, we spend about half of our waking hours -- one-third of our lives on earth -- spinning fantasies.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because you are entering a phase when your daydreams can serve you well. They’re more likely than usual to be creative, productive and useful. Monitor them closely.

 SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Eighth

Symphony in a mere two months during the summer of 1943. He worked on it in an old henhouse on a former chicken farm. The location helped relax him, allowing him to work with extra intensity. I wish you could find a retreat like that for yourself sometime soon, Sagittarius. I think you would benefit from going off by yourself to a sanctuary and having some nice long talks with your ancestors, the spirits of nature, and your deepest self. If that’s not practical right now, what would be the next best thing you could do?

 CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Is there one simple thing you could do to bring a bit more freedom into your life? An elegant rebellion against an oppressive circumstance? A compassionate breakaway from a poignant encumbrance? A flash of unpredictable behavior that would help you escape a puzzling compromise? I’m not talking about a huge, dramatic move that would completely sever you from all of your burdens and limitations. I’m imagining a small step you could take to get a taste of spaciousness and a hint of greater fluidity. That’s your assignment in the coming week.

 AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) There are 15,074 lakes in Wisconsin, but more than 9,000 of them

have never been officially named. That’s strange to me. In my view, everything is worthy of the love that is bestowed by giving it a name. I have named every tree and bush in my yard, as well as each egret that frequents the creek flowing by my house. I understand that at the Findhorn community in northern Scotland, people even give names to their cars and toasters and washing machines. According to researchers in the United Kingdom, cows that have names are happier: They produce more milk. Your assignment, Aquarius, is to name at least some of the unnamed things in your world. It’s an excellent time to cultivate a closer, warmer personal relationship with absolutely everything.
