Selma: A Musical Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Wicked The Orpheum Theatre | March 7-25

This dramatic musical captures prominent moments such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL. It is a mesmerizing and creative work of art, with jazz tunes and bass strings that will bring any audience to their feet. Originally written in 1976 to honor Dr. King’s bravery, many of the messages still resonate with activists today.

Wicked, Memphis’ most “popular” musical, is returning to the Orpheum Theatre. The Broadway sensation looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

Join Prince and his team as they take us on a trip inside the writer’s room to witness the wacky antics and crazy arguments that happen on the 23rd floor.

American Musical Parody. A man appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording “comes to life” and you have the ingredients for a masterful madcap evening lovingly poking fun at the musical theatre genre. Lovers on the eve of their wedding, bumbling, desperate friends, notso-bright characters, imposters and more perform one toe-tapping, rousing musical number after another.

James and the Giant Peach The Circuit Playhouse | March 16- April 8 Book by Timothy Allen McDonald, Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Based on the book, “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach and launches him on a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among humansized insects with equally oversized personalities. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family to survive the adventure of a lifetime.

Dixon Blooms:

A Celebration of Spring

By Sandi Butler Hughes

Photos courtesy of The Dixon Gallery & Gardens

When spring springs forth in our Bluff City, there is no better place than the Dixon Gallery & Gardens for a splendid show of nature’s exuberance. Dixon Blooms: A Celebration of Spring is an event that lasts for weeks and is an overthe-top abundance of tulips and daffodils blooming throughout the gardens. The event began in 2009, recalled Dale Skaggs, Director of Horticulture for the Dixon, with a mere 20,000 bulbs. “This year we have 125,000 newly installed bulbs for the spring,” he said. Note that “newly installed” is key as these bulbs are in addition to the permanent plantings at the Dixon. A key component of this event is the team of gardeners wielding bulb augers. Led by Dixon garden staffer Lorenzo Perez, staff plus volunteers plant the additional bulbs annually in the fall season. “In the right conditions, they plant about 5,000 bulbs per day,” Dale said. On the picnic lawn behind the Hughes Pavilion over 50,000 bulbs have been planted in that one area! For 2018, Dixon Blooms visitors will be treated to a profusion of daffodils. Yes, there will definitely be tulips in all their showy colors and configurations, but daffodil bulbs are the primary planting this year. “There’s a lot more to daffodils than just yellow, which is what most people think of. Some are salmon colored, some are pinks, pale yellows, and whites,” Dale said. Rotation is also another key component for the annual installation. Just as farmers rotate crops for optimal return, the Dixon rotates the mixture of tulips and daffodils that are planted. “Tulips don’t come back and do well flowering again. We have heavy, clay soil, which they don’t like, and the soil is very acidic. Then we have hot summers so it sets up an environment for a lot of pests that attack the bulbs. Memphis is just not tulip country,” he explained. So home gardeners take note: if you plant tulips, do not expect them to be perform year after year, and rotate where they are planted so pests can’t find them as easily. Just as the bulbs are installed annually, they must also be uninstalled. Because tulips are not well-suited to Memphis, those bulbs are composted, but the Daffodil Society of Memphis works to repurpose and reuse the daffodil bulbs that are uninstalled. The Society shares them across the city for plantings in public parks and other spaces. Daffodils are dependable bulbs and can be enjoyed for decades. Daffodils continue blooming at abandoned homesites long after the gardener has moved on or even the house is gone - a testament to the fortitude of these bulbs. The Daffodil Society will also be presenting the Annual Daffodil Show, March 24-25, with examples of stellar daffodil blooms. The exact dates for Dixon Blooms: A Celebration of Spring event depends on weather and other factors, but Dale said it is generally between St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) and Tax Day (April 15). The Dixon will be posting updates on social media, and while there is a week that the flowers peak, there is no bad time for the flowering extravaganza. “I planted early-, mid-, and late-season bloomers. When they are planted shoulder-to-shoulder, you get a sea of color that lasts a really long time,” he assures. This is a blooming show not to be missed!

The Memphis Flower Show 2018: Headlines The Memphis Garden Club and Dixon Gallery & Gardens are again hosting The Memphis Flower Show 2018: Headlines. The prestigious show, April 13-15, is one of only eight major flower shows sanctioned by the Garden Club of America. Held biennially, the Memphis Flower Show features magnificent floral arrangements inspired by works of art, current conservation applications, photography, botanical arts, needle art, jewelry, and local blue-ribbon horticulture selections. This year’s show features five divisions of exhibits inspired by Contemplating Character, an exhibition of portrait drawings and sketches over two centuries, and Garden Club of America judges from across the country will judge each division. Additionally, the Conservation and Education exhibit, The Memphis Sands Aquifer: Protecting Our Buried Treasure, will highlight the priceless natural resource that provides Memphis with an abundant source of naturally purified water. Thanks to the generous support of the Crawford-Howard Private Foundation, Headlines is free and open to the public on Saturday, April 14 (9:00am - 6:00pm) and Sunday, April 15 (11:00am - 5:00pm).

1289 South DuBray Place Collierville, TN 38017 901.610.3907 cindymccord.com Cindy McCord looks to Julie Keaton, Designer/ Sales at Kiser’s Floor Fashions, for the latest in flooring options and how to use them in a client’s home. According to Julie, one of the latest trends that has taken over the flooring market is Floating LVT/VCT (Luxury Vinyl Tile/Plank) with waterproof core. “The benefits are that it is waterproof and can give you beautiful, realistic hardwood decor in your bathroom and kitchen where water damage is more likely to occur. It is fade and stain resistant and can be installed directly over existing hard surface floors." As for the traditional hardwood floors and carpet, Julie says hardwood is a natural product with a beauty that can’t be replicated, but the negatives are that it can fade in sunlight, be scratched and is not water resistant. “Carpet is pretty much reduced to bedrooms now. Flat woven, looped carpet or pattern cuts are really popular rather than the traditional plush carpet. Commercial carpet tile has become a popular option in playrooms/kids rooms/media rooms as the tiles can be replaced as damage/major stains occur instead of having to replace the whole room. Pet protect carpet has been a very popular choice with manufacturer’s giving a lifetime warranty on pet protect carpet.” Porcelain tile has become the popular choice for the tile/stone looks. It is fired at a higher rate than traditional ceramic which makes it much stronger. The popular size has become the 12 x 24 or large format tile, which gives a updated look on the traditional 12 x 12 tiles of time past. Grout joints can be reduced to 1/16 instead of the traditional 1/4 inch, and this helps in upkeep which is the hardest part of tiled areas, keeping the grout fresh & clean. - Cindy McCord

Flooring options run the gamut, so it is important to do your research before jumping on the latest trend. While trends are useful for design inspiration, opt for timeless selections and ones that make sense with the long-term functionality of your home. In addition to budget and maintenance concerns, consider the following factors when choosing to upgrade or replace flooring. Noise Control While images of faux wood tiled floors in family rooms and kitchens look great, noise levels can get out of hand when hard surfaces are applied to every surface. If you choose to tile heavy traffic areas like the family room consider soundproofing underlays beneath tile and include area rugs and window treatments in the budget for overall sound control. Radiant Heat This type of efficient heating turns your floors into radiators. Fans of this flooring recognize it is more expensive to install, but are devotees because of the constant temperature provided and energy savings down the road. Radiant heat can be installed anywhere, but mainly is used in bathrooms. - Rachel Gray

I look at flooring obviously as more permanent than changing a pillow, drapery, or sofa fabric. As in my design, I look for classic materials; hardwoods and natural stone are always favorites. But, at times a man-made product is a better solution for the job on hand. High-traffic areas and lower maintenance are observations that need to be addressed when choosing a product. Carpets are something to consider, and in which areas? Wall-to-wall is an option but I prefer cut carpets or fine rugs that can be removed and cleaned. Bedrooms, hallways, living areas, and dining rooms are all spaces that benefit from the warmth added in using these ideas, but still allows for the beauty of marble and woods to shine through. I would tell anyone not to go too popular at the moment, and really consider what would be too dated in a few years. Flooring trends go from natural products like bamboo, cork, hardwoods, stone to printed tile, luxury vinyls, ceramics, and concrete. If you stick with the classics in permanent surfaces and utilize color and pattern with removable options, you will likely enjoy your floors for a very long time. - Anthony Shaw

Memphis Fashion 4Memphis and Memphis Fashion Design Network honor the movers and makers who embody and create Memphis fashion. From designers to proprietors, early career to storied icons, this collection of style setters is dressing Memphis, beautifully. Our fashion shoot location this month is the former home of Dr. George Nichopoulos which has been restored to its original 1970s charm. The Nichopoulos family maintained the ownership of the home, and the design was influenced by the friendship of Elvis and Dr. Nick, until Dr. Nichopoulos' death. Elvis financed the home for his friend and was instrumental in designing the house including the racquetball court.

‘18 / MEMPHIS FASHION WEEK

EMERGING MEMPHIS DESIGNER PROJECT

MINI COLLECTION The designers in the EMDP Mini Collections are required to make a cohesive collection made up of 5 looks. For a mini collection, it is important to showcase a variety of pieces for the wearer. This includes seperates, dresses, and in some cases even menswear.

Danielle Pierce is a 3rd generation designer and studied fashion at O’More College. Casey Beck, winner of the 2016 Singles Collection, is returning to Memphis Fashion Week for the third year to showcase her mini collection.

The Emerging Memphis Designer Project issues a call for sketches each fall where designers must present new designs for Spring/Summer. Selected designers have approximately seven months to make their designs runway-ready by selecting fabrics, creating patterns, sewing their pieces, and fitting models. Finally, they present designs on the runway at Memphis Fashion Week’s Emerging Designer Shows, Saturday, April 14th. The designs seen here are partially complete and were photgraphed during the first fitting session with models. Collections are judged by local fashion insiders as well as audience choice ballots. Winners receive a scholarship to the MCA Continuing Education classes and a membership to The Lab by Memphis Fashion Design Network. For Tickets and more info:memphisfashionweek.org

SINGLES The EMDP Singles Collections are made up of designers that have completed between 1-3 garments. These designers are not required to make a cohesive collection but to fine tune their individual pieces. This year many designers created their own textiles using different techniques, including hand painting, patch work and custom prints.

TEEN The Teen Collection was created to encourage our youngest designers. We welcome 4 teen designers to the runway with collections ranging from 1-3 garments. Some of these teens have been designing for years and others have taught themselves to sew on these very garments. 46 / March 2018

It was a bad month for Julius Caesar but it’s going to be a great month for us. About two-thirds through the month, we get spring. It’s in the air and in galleries and concert halls as well. Spring is about the newness of possibilities, of regeneration, and that is exactly how the month begins with a walk through the gorgeous but long-abandoned Universal Life Building, the 1949 Egyptian Revival structure. Later there is a double dose of Leonard Bernstein with both the Memphis Symphony and Iris Orchestra weighing in. And then the art – paintings, photography, representation of science, gallery talks – all in full bloom. Go and enjoy!

Green Eggs & Steak 4 ounce filet mignon 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 tablespoons butter 1 sprig fresh rosemary 1 sprig fresh thyme 1 tablespoon shallot, chopped 1 clove garlic, smashed 1 large egg, yolk separated and reserved 1 teaspoon jalapeño, chopped seeds removed 1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped 1 piece brioche bread or English muffin kosher salt fresh, cracked black pepper Set a saute pan over high heat. Season filet with salt and pepper. Add oil to pan and once hot, lay filet into the pan and sear to lock juices inside. Do not move it around. Cook for about 90 seconds, then flip to sear the other side for an additional 90 seconds. Lower heat to medium high. Add the shallot, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Allow them to cook about 1 minute. Add 1 tablespoon butter to pan so the flavors from the shallot, garlic and herbs will infuse with the butter. Now that the steak is seared and the juices are locked in, flip it again, and cook 90 seconds more, using a spoon to baste filet with butter. Flip it one last time and cook about 1 more minute, constantly basting. Remove the filet from the pan and set it on a cutting board to rest. This should yield a medium-rare filet.

Crack egg and separate white from the yolk; be careful not to break the yolk. In a small food processor or blender, combine jalapeño and chives; pulse until finely chopped. Add 1 teaspoon of infused butter and pulse twice to make a green paste. Next, add egg white and pulse a few times until incorporated. The natural oils from the jalapeños and chives will turn the egg white green. Do not blend egg white too much or it will become frothy. Pulse just enough to change color. Set a non-stick pan over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add the "green" egg white to pan and pour the reserved egg yolk in the center of the egg white. Cook until egg white is done but the yolk is still runny, about 1 minute to 90 seconds. Toast brioche bread, or English muffin, and lay the filet on top. Carefully top the filet with the sunny-side up egg, and finish with fresh cracked black pepper.


They said 'I Do"

The Beginning:

Amanda & Jon Ruff

Jon and I first met in February of 2015 through a mutual friend. He had recently moved back to Memphis from working in D.C and we just so happened to pick the same Midtown spot one Friday night with our friends. One month later, he asked me to have dinner at Acre, and the rest was history.

The Preparation: We began to brainstorm what type of wedding we wanted to have that year. While we enjoyed the remainder of our ski trip, my amazing mother got to work on finding someone to help us plan the biggest day to come! We found a wedding planner we loved and began to work on all the exciting details. Mark and Sarah at The Dixon couldn’t have been more enjoyable to work with from the very first meeting. Lee and Jon with L & J Productions were a dream come true to work with and I could have met with them 10 more times just because they are so much fun! They amazed us with their talent, creative ideas, and knowledge and we could not have had a better experience with these two. Olivia at White Door Events was a huge help throughout the whole experience and played such a key role in making the reception everything we dreamed of. Every vendor we used was delightful!

The Memorable Day: The day began at Heather Boutique where my bridesmaids and family all enjoyed mimosas and had our hair and makeup done. They were all so amazing to work with, and I highly recommend them! We headed to The Dixon where Jon and I had our first look in the garden. This was truly a magical moment for us. We owe it all to The Kenneys Photography for capturing the tears and smiles and guiding us through the whole day.

Savannah Kenney played so many roles that day besides a photographer, she was a dream to spend the day with! The weather turned out beautifully for a December afternoon wedding, and the ceremony facing the garden was perfect. The ambiance at the reception was magical, with the groom’s cake being a huge hit, thanks to Cakes by Mom and Me. We danced the night away and left with a rose petal toss to a vintage white trolley with all our friends.

The Getaway: We honeymooned over Christmas in Grand Cayman at The Marriott Seven Mile Beach. We loved it upon arrival and immediately felt so welcomed. I was so excited they had Christmas trees everywhere! We befriended several staff members who took care of us for our entire stay, even remembering our favorite drinks. We enjoyed a bioluminescence kayak trip in the middle of the night, an excursion to Stingray City, constant snorkeling in the crystal blue waters, and a private sailing trip where Jon went from husband to captain for a few hours. We had the most fabulous dinner on Christmas Eve at Luca, and would definitely recommend it. We loved every minute of our honeymoon and can’t wait for an anniversary trip this December!

They Said 'I Do'

Karly & Jeff Campbell The Beginning: When this Birmingham boy and this Memphis girl both ended up living and working in Nashville- their paths crossed and they found each other on a blind date. The couple quickly fell for each other and have been together ever since. They now live together in the 12 South neighborhood of Nashville, but make sure to make frequent visits to the hometowns that shaped them.

The Preparation: The Schledwitz family knows how to party. So while the bride was longdistance planning from Nashville, she had plenty of on the ground support from her parents, Gail and Karl. The best part of planning was finding the wedding dress. Karly found her dress while on a family trip to Paris last spring!

The Memorable Day: When you combine New Years’ Eve and a wedding, you know it is going to be a party! After the ceremony at Lindenwood Christian Church, the party began downtown at the Columns. The wedding featured a whiskey bar with specialty cocktails, a donut wall with white and gold Gibson’s donuts, personalized fortune cookies, and a champagne fountain with nearly 100 champagne glasses! Holliday Flowers even built a custom ball drop to make the midnight countdown extra special.

The Getaway: The couple chose to wait for warmer weather and is traveling to Greece in May! While in Santorini and Mykonos, they will be wine tasting, learning to cook Greek food, and relaxing on a catamaran ride. 58 / March 2018

However, I have been with the magazine for a year now, and I am truly blown away by the strong effect Impact has on our community and the students within it. Writing and developing content for the magazine has opened my eyes to the fact that, with the right leadership and staff, high schoolers can create and produce a magazine that is widely read and well respected. As I look back on the past 12 months and the 12 issues we have written and produced, I realize 4Memphis Impact has truly taught me never to doubt my age or ability and the effect that people my age can have on others.

While serving on the 4Memphis Staff for the past year, I have gained valuable experience in collaboration and community involvement. 4Memphis allowed me to strengthen my writing and photography skills while working with others in a creative environment. It also has helped me recognize that I would like to pursue writing and photography in the future, and, for this reason, I appreciate the opportunity I have had to serve as a staff member for 4Memphis. - Mary Elizabeth Working with 4Memphis Impact has brought me countless learning experiences. 4Memphis has particularly enhanced my ability to work as a team. I quickly realized that being a member of this team was no easy task, but, with the ideas, opinions, and feedback of the other girls, it became evident to me that together we were capable of creating an awesome spread. Each member of the Impact Staff holds a different talent- from writing, styling, to graphic design. Working together by contributing our special gifts allowed for the Impact Magazine to be its best.

4Memphis Impact has been such an exciting learning experience. Through the cultivation of ideas and creativity, expressing ourselves, and teamwork I have learned how to collaborate better with others and have made so many new friends. The magazine has also enhanced the value of teamwork because at each meeting we sat around a round table, bounced around ideas, and collaborated efficiently and creatively. Getting feedback from each other ensured that our spread each month would be the best. Indeed, each spread was filled with content and pictures that reflected who we are and who we want to be as a rising magazine staff. - Grace

MeMphis iMpact Meet the staff


FOREVER RIVALRY By: Robert Ayotte The long-standing rivalry existing with Memphis University School and Christian Brothers has extended over nearly every sport and competition held between the two schools, athletic or academic. As the winter basketball season drew to a close and spring approached, the two schools wrapped up their regular basketball seasons with one final game at MUS’s Ross Lynn Arena on February 16. Having previously lost to the Owls in an earlier matchup, 63 to 46, the Brothers, coached by Bubba Luckett, went into the second confrontation looking to redeem themselves. Despite their efforts, MUS narrowly escaped with the victory, beating CBHS 50-47 in a nail-biting overtime win. Playing in front of packed crowds on both sides, the two teams found themselves nearly tied at halftime, 23-22, and the close score continued until MUS junior Jalen Holliman tied up the score with one minute remaining, pushing the game into overtime. MUS, led by head coach Matt Bakke, only allowed one point in the additional four minutes, sealing their victory. Despite coming up short, CBHS senior Jack Herring snagged 14 points and 9 rebounds, while Zachary Hamlet also grabbed 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. Both Herring and Hamlet were also selected to be on the 1st and 2nd All-Region teams, respectively. MUS senior John McBride, who was announced one of the Co-Players of the Year in the region, came away with 17 points and 6 rebounds. Zach Street, who threw in 13 points, was also chosen to be on the All-Region 1st team, while MUS juniors Dekari Scott and Sellers Shy were placed on the 2nd team as well. With the win, MUS’s regular season record improved to 15-10, while CBHS’s record cemented at 18-10. The victory also marked Matt Bakke’s 100th win as head coach of the Owls, after having taken the coaching job back in late 2013. “Christian Brothers is always one of our toughest opponents of the year. Coach Luckett is one of the top coaches in Memphis,” coach Bakke commented. “There is no game on our schedule that comes close to matching the intensity, excitement and electricity of the MUS and CBHS game. The players on both teams play with amazing effort, energy, and poise, the students are passionately involved from start to finish, and the basketball is played at an extremely high level. It’s an absolute thrill to be a part of.” Prior to the varsity game, CBHS had defeated MUS in the JV matchup, 60-42. Both teams look for success in the post season, as MUS grabbed the district second seed and CBHS took the third. March 2018 / 61
