he Metropolitan Business & Citizens Association (MBCA) will be holding its 23rd Annual Installation/ Awards Award Gala on Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Trump Taj Mahal. This year’s “2013 MBCA Community Spirit Award” will be presented to Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson for his “charitable and civic commitments in the region” and more than 13 years of leadership in Atlantic County. Levinson was just named New Jersey County Executive of the year by the New Jersey Conference of Mayors. Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford will install the MBCA board officers and executive board for 2014. The gala is the MBCA’s major business/social event of the year, and will include a “lavish cocktail reception and an extraordinary sit down dinner.” Proceeds from the gala will benefit MBCA programs and services as well as supporting charitable and civic endeavors. To date, MBCA has donated over $280,000 to numerous charities throughout the Atlantic City region. For additional information, visit the MBCA Web site at @acweekly


ack in town for the third year Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 26-29, Atlantic City Fashion Week will showcase an international group of 30 designers from Australia, India, the Caribbean and the United States. Sponsored in part by fashionSTYLE magazine and KingBee Media, the four-day event will be held at the Pier Shops at Caesars and is expected to rival the vaunted New York Fashion Week — a semi-annual series widely considered among the four major fashion extravaganzas worldwide. The Atlantic City Fashion Week designers will display menswear, ladies au couture and formalwear presented by professional runway models from the tri-state area and from as far away as Florida and California. Fashion Week begins with a welcoming event and first-ever Atlantic City Fashion Week Awards paying homage to industry professionals in six separate categories; top female model, top male model, top photographer, top designer, top makeup artist and top fashion executive. Friday’s designers will showcase their “ready to wear” and “plus size” collections. Saturday will showcase au couture and avant garde’ designs, and Sunday will feature designers and collections from South Asia.

n Wednesday, Oct. 2, the Al Gold Memorial Lecture Series will resume at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s Campus Center Theatre at 2:30pm with the help of Vicki Gold Levi, who, like her late father, has a love for Atlantic City. The co-founder of the Atlantic City Historical Museum, Gold Levi states, “Al Gold was Atlantic City’s first official photographer. Though he called himself a newsman, he was really an artist. It is my pleasure to honor and remember him, by presenting different artists to the students of Stockton College and other guests. This way, his love of the image can be perpetuated in many visual forms.” As part of the lecture series, international curator Lance Fung, who is known for his innovative approach to public art, will speak at the Oct. 2 lecture. Fung is an art curator who has been noted for several major exhibitions including “Snow Show” at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. Last year, Fung came to Atlantic City for his latest exposition, ARTLANTIC, a series of art installations that are being designed to activate vacant areas in the heart of Atlantic City. These vacant spaces were chosen based on their locations and inspirational qualities for the artists to explore and invent. During this multiphase exhibition, Fung is calling upon international artists and architects to utilize their talents and skills to promote art in unique ways and environments. Fung will be speaking of his experiences as an artist around the world and in Atlantic City over the past year or so.

ow’s that? The 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards might not have included as many Boardwalk Empire nominations for the first year since the HBO series debuted in 2010, but the one it did have scored big, as Bobby Cannavale beat out a tough crowd taking home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Cannavale, 43, who played the unforgettable role of Gyp Rosetti in the third season of Boardwalk Empire, remarked that he had just dropped off his son Jake at college and that he was watching on TV in his dorm. Here is two-time Emmy winner and Tony-Award winner Cannavale’s acceptance speech: “Wow, [I] didn’t write anything down, so I’m just ... I can’t believe I get to get mentioned with these other really incredible actors. Thank you for ... thank you for putting me with them. (Laughter) Mandy Patinkin is the first person I ever saw on stage, and he’s like my favorite person. But you know what? I have a family, so let me thank them. I love my son Jake, who I took to college three weeks ago and is watching with his dorm mates right now; I love you son. And Terry Winter [who] created this great role and created this great series. And Mr. Scorsese, who, you know — well, you know, he’s great. (Laughter.) And Tim Van Patten, who directed me on the weirdest first day of work I’ve ever had in my life — 12 hours of beating somebody to death with four different kinds of rubber wrenches. And to the great cast, Steve Buscemi and Chris Caldovino and Gretchen Mol and everybody at HBO. My great people, Peg Donegan and Ira Schreck and James Adams and Tony Howard and Bonnie Bernstein. And my love of my life Rose. Thank you so much. Thank you.”

Craft Beer festivals at Golden Nugget and Resorts will offer dozens of seasonal samplings of suds and more. By Ray Schweibert •


s the popularity of craft brews continues to soar, and with it an expanded fan base of beer drinkers who can better appreciate a seemingly endless selection of styles and flavors, so too does the rise of craft beer festivals. The springtime Celebration of the Suds at the AC Convention Center is and likely always will be king of the beer fests in these parts, but it has given rise to a growing series of smaller events, two of which are taking place on the last weekend of September — one in the Marina District and one on the Boardwalk. Returning for the third year is the two-day Golden Nugget Craft Beer Festival, which includes several components highlighted by a sensational sampling event Saturday night, Sept. 28, in the Grand Ballroom starting 8pm. Guests are given a “beer passport” and can check off a list of more than 100 varieties from 32 breweries (although completing the list is not recommended unless you want to be wheel-barrowed out of the Grand). There is also a series of small-bite buffet spreads set up that pair well with the brews being sampled. General admission tickets are $49, or for $59 guests can gain entry an hour early (7pm) to avoid the longer lines and have an opportunity to meet with many of the brewmasters. Also part of the Golden Nugget event is a preview beer sampling on The Deck from 8pm-midnight Friday. Admission is free and beer samplings and food pairings are payas-you-go. Two other components include a four-course beer dinner at Vic & Anthony’s steakhouse starting 7pm Friday, in which executive chef Norman Reola will pair four dishes with four styles of Ommegang beer (a craft brewery in Cooperstown, N.Y., that will have a representative on hand to help describe each pairing to diners), and a sushiand-beer pairing at Lillie’s Asian Cuisine. Diners can pair five sushi rolls with five seasonal brews during Lillie’s regular business hours Friday (4pm-4am) and Saturday (noon-4am) at their leisure. Seating is limited at the Vic & Anthony’s event. The cost is $70 per person. Interested attendees should make reservations by calling 441-8355. Coinciding with the recent launch of Landshark Bar & Grill (a component of the Margaritaville complex named after Landshark Lager, a brew marketed by Jimmy Buffett), the Resorts Craft Beer Festival will take place Saturday, Sept. 28, from 2-6pm, at Resorts’ Superstar Theater. The inaugural event will feature over 90 craft brews from around the country, from New Jersey’s Flying Fish to Escondido, California’s Stone Brewing and several in

between. “Resorts has been infused with a whole new energy, and continuing to add events like the Craft Beer Fest reinforces our commitment to bringing top-notch events to the property for all our guests and the public to enjoy,” says Resorts president and CEO Mark Giannantonio. Guests will also be offered food pairings and the chance to win a variety of prizes for a fixed fee of $25. Tickets are available at the door or in advance at This, like the Golden Nugget beer fest, is open only to patrons age 21 and over. Events like these would be given a dishonorable discharge from the label “beer fest” if they did not include live music. Resorts will feature the band Weird Science, which bills itself as the “Ultimate ’80s Experiment,” recreating the sounds, sights and flavor of that decade right down to the names of its members. The band includes co-lead vocalists Michael J Roxx and Myndi Lauper, keyboardist Willy Idol, drummer LL Cool K, lead guitarist CC DesKillz, and bass player Slinky. At Golden Nugget, New York City-based rockers Screaming Broccoli close out The Deck’s Friday night music series starting 8pm, and local favorites Seven Stone (guitarist Rich Fredericks, lead vocalist Jeff Bugdon, bassist Mickey Sacco and drummer Guy DeFalco) rock The Deck on Saturday (7-11pm) to close out live music there at night until next summer. “The weather’s supposed to stay beautiful all the way through the weekend, which is going to make for an awesome night,” says Bugdon. “The boat show [AC’s In-Water Power Boat Show, Sept. 26-29, at Farley State Marina] is this weekend too, so there will be a menagerie of people coming and going. Whether they’re there for the boats, the beer or the bands, there’ll be plenty of people floating around out there enjoying themselves.” n

Golden Nugget Craft Beer Fest Fri., Sept. 27 — beer samplings on The Deck (8pm-midnight, free admission, a la carte); fourcourse beer dinner at Vic & Anthony’s (7pm, $70); sushi-beer pairing at Lillie’s (4pm-4am Fri., noon4am Sat., a la carte). Sat., Sept. 28 — Craft Beer Grand Tasting @ the Grand Ballroom (8pmmidnight, $49 general admission; $59 for VIP arrival 7pm).

Lima Bean Ice Cream? By Tom Wilk •


ood provides more than sustenance. It serves as a catalyst to bring people together, from a family dinner to a formal banquet. South Jersey towns have promoted this “Jersey Fresh” concept by offering food lovers a wide range of opportunities to satisfy their appetite for locally grown fruits and vegetables with a yearly series of events. In Hammonton, there is the popular Red, White and Blueberry Festival each June. Vineland serves up its annual Dandelion Dinner in the spring and Mullica Hill plays host to the four-day New Jersey Peach Festival in July. West Cape May steps up to the plate on Columbus Day weekend with its 29th annual Lima Bean Festival. The festival is scheduled for Oct. 12. It’s a celebration of the sometimes unheralded legume, which has helped put the Cape May borough of just over 1,000 people on the culinary map. “It’s just not the type of event you see everywhere,” says Pam Kaithern, mayor of West Cape May for the past

eight years and a former deputy mayor. The festival, which is held in Wilbraham Park and organized by the town’s Shade Tree Commission, pays tribute to the agricultural heritage of West Cape May and the surrounding region. Lima beans have long been a part of the local economy although the total acreage has decreased in recent years. According to the most recent figures compiled by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, there are 35 farms in the state growing lima beans on a total of 450 acres. Of that figure, there are seven farms in Cape May County and one farm in Atlantic County that count lima beans among their crops. The region’s warm, well-drained sandy soils are conducive to lima bean production, according to agricultural officials. West Cape May’s festival has ensured the lima bean will have at least one day where it won’t be overshadowed by more popular state-grown produce, such as tomatoes, blueberries and corn. “The festival began in 1985

by Alyse Dolmetsch, a local woman who thought it would be a fun way to celebrate our community,” the mayor says, and the idea quickly took root in the community. While lima beans are a mainstay in succotash, festival participants have demonstrated a flair for creativity in preparing dishes that is limited only by their imagination. Although some feel lima beans are an acquired taste, there is no shortage of options on how to serve them. “Barbecued lima beans, soups, stews, salsa, and even lima bean ice cream have shown up on the menu,” Kaithern notes. Other offerings over the years have included lima bean pizza, pate, mousse and Key Lima pie. While some debate the taste of lima beans, which have been grown for more than 7,000 years, there’s no denying their nutritional value. The Web site (World’s Healthiest Foods) points out that “Lima beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber” and are a good source of “virtually fat-free high-quality protein.” Lima beans don’t even have to be consumed to enjoy the festival, which features music and other entertainment. Vendors have sold handcrafted lima pottery, crafts and jewelry since the incep-

tion of the event. Dangling earrings featuring the beans have been a favorite item. Decorated T-shirts with sayings such as “Bean There, Done That” and “Dali Lima” also have been sold at the festival, Kaithern says. The festival has added a lighthearted touch of royalty with the crowning of a Lima Bean King and Queen, who also will be featured in the West Cape May Christmas Parade in December. Since the inaugural festival, word has spread of the event to bring in more visitors. “We get people from the tri-state area, but also from New York and Connecticut,” Kaithern says. “We’ve had people from as far away as Texas and Virginia,” she adds, estimating turnout can reach 10,000 people. The festival also has other benefits for West Cape May. “Local businesses get their names before the public and revenues from the festival, such as vendor fees, go back into the community,” the mayor says. Kaithern sums up the festival’s ongoing appeal. “People enjoy the camaraderie. It’s small town life at its best.” (West Cape May’s Lima Bean Festival will run from 9am to 5pm at Wilbraham Park on Saturday, Oct. 12. Rain date is Oct. 13.

t’s called “the crumble,” and to the producers of the 3D laser light and sound show projected nightly onto the façade of Boardwalk Hall, it’s become the signature move for three of the four shows created by the Canadian firm Moment Factory. But it wasn’t until they left the special effect out of the third show, called Boardwalk Beat, that producer Geneviève Forest and show director Mareike Lenhart realized just how much the public enjoyed that particular computer-generated illusion. “We took a break from the crumble in Boardwalk Beat, but people kept asking for it, so now we thought, ‘How can we bring it back, but in a different way?’” Forest said. It didn’t take long to come up with a way to incorporate the very cool move into the newest show, AC Dreamin’, which made its debut at the end of August. In Duality, the first of the eight-and-a-half-minute free shows presented multiple times nightly after dark, Moment Factory used a process known as video mapping to make it appear that the colonnades on the façade onto which the show is projected were literally crumbling to the ground. Video mapping is a process that can turn a display surface, like the outside of a building, into a surface for video projection. Special software is mapped onto a virtual program that mimics the actual environment onto which it’s being projected. To explain it any further would probably be TMI — too much information. Besides, unless you’re a complete computer geek, who cares how it’s done? Suffice to say when “the crumble” was first used in Duality in July 2012, people gasped in amazement. It really did look like the 84-year-old historic building was falling onto the Boardwalk in bite-sized pieces. The effect became instantly popular with the audience, so Moment Factory’s creative team incorporated it into Winter Sweet, the holiday-themed show that replaced Duality last winter. “We brought it back as a snow crumble,” Forest said. But for Boardwalk Beat, which replaced the winter show, the producers decided to leave the effect back at its Canadian studio. They quickly learned, through various social media sites and Web sites like Trip Advisor, that people missed the effect. It was quickly written into AC Dreamin’. “This time, you will see an underwater crumble,” Forest said of the show that also added a new dimension to this piece of high-tech electronic entertainment: human beings. The new show also has as a story line. AC Dreamin’ almost picks up where Boardwalk Beat left off, Lenhart added. “People really responded so positively [to ‘Boardwalk Beat’], they really felt a connection with the city and with what they saw,” she said. “So we thought maybe we should bring more of Atlantic City’s attractions into the show. ... And because we wanted our artistic freedom, we decided it could be a dream, and we can be more creative. And since everyone loves a romantic story, how about two friends who find each other and explore Atlantic City together and have a very romantic ending?”

Moment Factory’s ‘AC Dreamin’’

“Boardwalk Hall is such an iconic building, and it has so much history and beauty behind it, that we could not just cover it with projections.” To help close the 500-mile distance between Atlantic City and Moment Factory’s Montreal home, the producers created a miniature 3D model of Boardwalk Hall for its creative team. Then they turned their team of multi-disciplinary artists — animators, designers, technical director and sound composer — loose to brainstorm an idea. They eventually came up with the concept for the new show. But working with actors on a show that had previously been built around animated characters was a challenge within a challenge, Forest and Lenhart agreed. The process involved a video shoot with eight actors — five of them circus artists — along with the two principle characters. In this dream-like fantasy, the couple navigates through six different worlds, including a mysterious train station, a luxury hotel, a wacky theme park, a surreal lighthouse, an underwater world and, of course, the Boardwalk at night. All are loosely based on things that exist — or once existed — in Atlantic City. “When we did the visual shoot with live performers ... it was a really fun experience,” Forest said. “The two main performers in this show interact directly with the building. One of the characters opens a door and it looks like Boardwalk Hall is opening in two.” Moment Factory, whose clients have included Cirque du Soleil, Jay-Z, Disney, Céline Dion, and Madonna, has done shows around the world. Boardwalk Hall, both women agreed, was a building that had its own personality. “Some projects we’ve had to work with facades that are nothing special and we have to make something special out of it,” Lenhart said. “But in this case, Boardwalk Hall is such an iconic building, and it has so much history and beauty behind it, that we could not just cover it with projections. We really needed to bring all these details out and bring it to life because it’s really such an impressive structure.” n

hile most local sports fans consider “Gang Green” a reference to the Philadelphia Eagles, there are plenty of visitors to our region whose favorite “gang green” football team is the New York Jets. In tribute to those fans, Trump Taj Mahal’s Ego Lounge is hosting a “Trump Touchdown Sunday” event Sunday, Sept 29, featuring appearances by a quartet of former New York Jets star players. Freeman McNeil, Fred Baxter, Bobby Jackson and Randy Beverly will be at the Ego Lounge at Trump Taj Mahal from 3-5pm where they will pose for pictures and sign autographs. Also appearing will be the New York Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders who will also be posing for pictures and giving away T-shirts, hats, jerseys and more. Kick-off for the game, the Jets vs. the Tennessee Titans, is 4pm. Admission to Ego Bar & Lounge is free. Freeman McNeil was a running back selected by the New York Jets in the first round of the 1981 NFL Draft. He played 12 seasons for the Jets from 1981 – 1992. From the mid to late 1980s he was a member of the Jets’ “Two Headed Monster” backfield. When McNeil retired, he was the Jets all-time leading rusher with 8,074 yards; he currently ranks second in Jets team history.


In 1982, McNeil led the NFL in rushing with 786 yards. He is one of a few running backs in NFL history to average 4.0 yards per carry in every season he played. Randy Beverly was a cornerback who signed as a rookie free agent with the New York Jets in 1967. He became the first player ever to record two interceptions in a Super Bowl during Super Bowl III against Baltimore. The Jets 16-7 victory over the Colts, led by quarterback Joe Namath, is still considered the biggest upset in Super Bowl history. Fred Baxter was a tight end selected by the New York Jets in the 5th round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He played in the NFL for 11 years. Bobby Jackson was a cornerback selected by the New York Jets in the 6th round of the 1978 NFL Draft. Named to the AFC All-Rookie Team, Jackson started all 16 games at cornerback his rookie year and tied for the team lead with five interceptions. Jackson was named HBO Defensive Player of the Week for his play in a game against Minnesota in 1982. Jackson was also named the Jets’ defensive captain in the 1981 season and All Pro by Pro Football Weekly Magazine. He retired with 21 career interceptions and 3 fumble recoveries and was selected to the All – Time Jet Team as one of the top three corners in the history of the New York Jets. ■

30 Years of Yucks

Now in its fourth decade, Bob Kephart’s Comedy Stop is the longest running show on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. By Jeff Schwachter •


the nicest small theaters on the East Coast. You don’t see places like this. Of course, doing it right helped business and performers. I sat down after 16 months of putting it together and thought, ‘ H m m , w h a t next?’ This was a wonderful time for me and the success of it, of course, is a tribute to what was done. I had hundreds of people working for me. I didn’t do this by myself, but it was a dream come true.” Kephart, now 71, with two daughters, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, says the business of comedy has not lost its luster for him over the past 30 years; in fact, he’s inspired by the 30th anniversary to do new things. He’s not only planning a big 30th anniversary bash for the upcoming Black Friday (Nov. 29), but is looking forward to the return of Detroit’s Kevin Downey Jr., who is booked at the club Sept. 30-Oct. 6. While everyone from legendary comedy club impresario Bud Freeman (who had a version of his popular New York and Los Angeles comedy club The Improv at Resorts for a while) to comedian Eddie Murphy (who had a comedy spot at the former Sands for a few months, as Kephart recalls) has tried to copy Kephart’s success with his Comedy Stop, and even though both Revel and the Borgata have comedy “clubs,” none can (yet) say they have produced the longest running show on the Boardwalk as Germantown, Philadelphia, Pa., native Kephart can. Comedy is just in his blood. “Even when I was five,” he says, “I

“It’s a very serious business even though it’s about comedy.”

It wasn’t called The Comedy Stop at that point? Oh no. This was a little place called The Jail House in Philly. So, when I moved down here, I had that idea that I would want to do that here, too. I bounced around a little bit from [the former club] TK’s at one point. It was a mixture of things — bands and dancing on the second floor and food. It was a fun place on Boston and Atlantic [avenues]. The [old] Golden Nugget was being built while I was running that and we did quite well with the business. I started bringing comedy to the area once a week up on the second floor. With Eddie Murphy and SNL and the rise of comedy clubs, 1983 was a pretty huge year for comedy. Yeah, it was, and I sort of hit it at a good time. We did very well. Before the early ’90s, the only place you could see stand-up was in New York or L.A. Once the boom started, you could go to Wichita, Kansas, and there’d be a place. Unfortunately, many of these people got involved and had no idea what they were doing. It hurt the comedy business because they were putting people up [on stage] who never should’ve been up. We survived and so did the other clubs who knew what they were doing. I actually created the National Association of Comedy Club Owners and that was around for about three years in the ’80s and ’90s. What were your first years as a comedy club owner like? It was so different then. People used to get dressed up to go out. I used to work the door every night and wear a tuxedo. I bought five or six of them. I wasn’t going CONTINUED ON PG. 49

More recently, Kevin Downey Jr., who, after years of being booked solely at Kephart’s C o m e d y Stop at the Tropicana and in Las Vegas — at one time Kephart had four Comedy Stops; now he focuses on the remaining one; “the one that makes the money,” he says with a smile — is now working clubs around the U.S. thanks to his exposure on a recent season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and the many years of plying his trade at the Comedy Stop. Although Kephart has pulled back a bit in recent years — he would be at the door every night for many years — the club is still his baby and he is proud of what he has accomplished. In 2004, the late Dennis Gomes approached Kephart about a project the then head of the Tropicana was formulating. It turned out to be The Quarter, which not only opened in 2004, but would house Kephart’s Comedy Stop Café & Cabaret. “In 2004, Dennis approached me about a project that they wanted to me to be a part of,” Kephart says. “And I did want to be a part of it. As it turned out, it was a bigger project than I expected. I was involved from the beginning. During that time, the garage fell down. It was a bad time for the Trop. We opened late, but we did open. This was a dream come true for me. Very rarely do you get to build a place like this from the ground up. Usually, it already exists. With my understanding of the business, I was able to do the right things for this place. It’s one of

You said you were in Atlantic City five years prior to the opening of the club? Yes. I came here when Resorts opened in 1978 from Philly. In the 70s, I was basically booking bands and running discotheques. So I got my inspiration from the fact that many of the people were getting older and didn’t want to be on the disco floor with 20 year olds. So I said there’s got to be something else for them. A couple of these home-grown comics in Philly wanted to do a comedy night. They would take the door and we would take the beverage. Very simple. And it took off, it was one night a week, on Thursdays. The people who came in were a little older, a little more mature and you could see it was going to be a big deal.

ecember 16, 1983. It was a very cold winter night in Atlantic City. Resorts, Caesars, the (old) Golden Nugget and the Tropicana were the only casinos in town. Bob Kephart, a Philly guy with several years of restaurant and club experience in both Atlantic City and Philadelphia, was dressed in a tuxedo, standing at the door of his new comedy club at the Trop, located in a cavernous room on the first floor of the casino’s north tower and affectionately referred to as the “Dungeon.” He had spent six months getting the club ready for opening with blessings and assistance from the Trop’s then entertainment director Jim Martin. “We had two shows on Friday and two shows on Saturday,” Kephart remembers. “And despite everybody’s doom and gloom, as it turned out, we were the only show that weekend in Atlantic City. We sold out every show to my delight. “I opened that club with $750 in cash, a couple credit cards, and a I had a lot of good will in town from having been there for about [five years]. And within two weeks, we were doing Thursday through Saturday and then we were doing Thursday through Sunday and then seven nights a week.” The timing was just right for a comedy club in Atlantic City. The comedy business boomed — mainly in California and New York — during the 1970s, with shows such as Saturday Night Live introducing fulltime comics to the rest of the country. By the 1980s, there were comedy clubs in every corner of the country. Kephart’s club in Atlantic City would give young comics such as Ray Romano and Tim Allen their first audiences. Rosie O’Donnell, Kevin James, Drew Carey and the late Richard Jeni would perform there

built a little funhouse in my basement in Germantown. I charged the kids three cents to go in the funhouse and that was the start of my show business career. ... [But I learned that] it’s a very serious business even though it’s about comedy,” he says. On a chilly Monday in late September, Kephart spoke with Atlantic City Weekly.

The Stuff of Legend

Touring behind its first album since 2005, renowned R&B band Earth, Wind and Fire visits the Borgata for two shows. By Ed Condran •

uring a recent chat with Rich Williams, the Kansas guitarist noted why the veteran band hasn’t released a new album and refuses to put out another disc. “The fans don’t care about new material,” Williams explained. “Why make it if they don’t want to buy it or listen to it?” A number of recording artists who made a name for themselves during the ‘70s are in Williams camp. But Earth, Wind and Fire is not in the same boat. The legendary R&B act, which became a monster band during the ‘70s, doesn’t care what other acts are or aren’t doing. “We just focus on what we want to do,” bassist Verdine White told Atlantic City Weekly. “That’s the way we’ve always been. We’re not about following trends or anything like that.” Earth, Wind and Fire, which will perform Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27-28, at the

Borgata, is touring behind its latest album Now, Then and Forever, which dropped two weeks ago. It’s the band’s first album since 2005 and only its fourth since 2003. But EWF hit sonic paydirt with the disc, which is 42 years removed from its first album. The band, which is down to a core of White, vocalist Philip Bailey and drummer Ralph Johnson, still brings it. The songs are catchy, rhythmic and full of deep grooves. White’s big thumping bass is a huge part of the identifiable Earth, Wind and Fire sound. It certainly sounds like the band listened to its early back catalog when making its latest project. The album was initially aimed for a late 2012 release but all Earth, Wind and Fire productions are big, so there is a delay. The timing though is right considering that soulful R&B is in. Daft Punk and Robin Thicke are hot but their roots are with Earth, Wind

and Fire. “I know we’ve influenced a lot of recording artists,” White says. “That’s a good thing. It means that we’ve been around for a while, and we have. It also means that we’re good at what we do. I think the cycle has moved back to the type of sound that we do. People are going back to the ‘70s.” Earth, Wind and Fire ruled the ‘70s. Back in the day, the iconic Miles Davis said that Earth, Wind and Fire was his favorite band. “You can’t get much bigger praise that that,” White says. “That’s something to be proud of.” Earth, Wind and Fire has been known as an exceptional R&B act but the band is much more than that. The innovative group has delivered funk, jazz, Latin music and rock. Few bands have been so versatile. “How can you not look up to a group like Earth, Wind and Fire,” Fishbone vocal- @acweekly

ist Angelo Moore says. “They’re incredible. There’s nobody like those guys. They certainly influenced me and my band.” White laughs when hit with the praise. “We’ve always been able to do different things,” White says. “That’s how we grew up as musicians. Doing different things makes it more interesting.” During its heyday, the band even had a great contrast in vocalists. You had Bailey and his soaring falsetto and Maurice White and his grounded tenor. “You had two of the best vocalists,” Moore says. “And they were in one band.” Maurice White, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1992, left the band as a touring member in 1995. Verdine’s brother, Maurice White still works with the act occasionally and helped put together Now, Then and Forever. “I’ve been through so much with Maurice,” Verdine White says. “He’s a had a difficult road to travel. But it was a great thing we started together.” Earth, Wind and Fire came of age during a revolutionary period in music. The group was born in 1969, which is arguably the height of contemporary music. The Beatles were coming to a creative halt, the Rolling Stones were at their peak. “Flower Power’”and the eclectic Detroit sound was ubiquitous. And then there was Woodstock. “It definitely was an incredible time,” White says. “The world changed. It was an inspirational period, a radical time in the history of our country and so radical for the bands.” Earth, Wind and Fire was off to a running start with its eponymous album in 1971 and the band never looked back. The group scored a number of hits, but hits come and go. One thing that hasn’t changed with Earth, Wind and Fire is that the group remains a terrific live act. ■ see more online @

Wedding dress silhouettes

Finding the perfect gown doesn’t have to be a love-hate decision


ew wardrobe decisions are scrutinized as much as a bride-to-be’s choice of wedding gown. Finding the perfect gown that flatters the future bride’s figure while stunning her guests and soon-to-be husband is a labor of love for many brides. The Bridal Association of America estimates a brideto-be will spend between $1,500 and $2,000 total on her gown, veil and accessories. Brides often spend months, if not years, shoping for the right gown. Finding the right gown means having an understanding of what silhouettes are available and what flatters certain body types. After all, you want to look like the best version of yourself when getting married. Here is a look of some of the common types of gown silhouettes and why choosing this shape might be right for you.

many body types is the A-line gown. A-line cut dresses should be the go-to style for anyone looking to minimize perceived flaws. The cut of the dress will fit to the waist and gradually fan out from the hips to form the outline of an uppercase “A.” When in doubt, A-line gowns are classic and sensible and a favorite among brides.

Ballgown A ballgown dress is truly a classic style, evoking images of fairy tale princesses. With a fitted bodice and full skirt that flairs at the waist, this silhouette is usually good for all body types. Because the full skirt, typically poofed-up by crinoline and will hide the hips and thighs, women with a pear shape might gravitate toward this style. The ballgown style may not be ideal for petite women, as the skirt may overwhelm their figures.

Mermaid A bit more fitted than the trumpet, this silhouette is close to the body from the chest down to the knee. The skirt then flares out slightly by the knee. Tall, thin women generally look best in this type of gown.

A-line Another silhouette very forgiving or appropriate for

Trumpet Women who prefer something a little more form-fitting may select a trumpet silhouette. This dress is fitted through the body and then the gown flares out at midthigh level. Women with taught stomachs and hourglass figures can benefit from this style gown, but those who do not want anything tight in the hips and thighs will want to select something else.

Tea length Brides who do not want a gown that reaches the floor can opt for a tea length dress, on which the skirt generally falls between the ankle and the knee. Sheath Lean brides who want simplicity in their gowns can opt for a sheath silhouette. The narrow shape of the gown from the neckline to the hem will definitely accentuate the body shape. Therefore, women who are shy may want to select a different option. Petite women who may be overwhelmed by more fabric can usually wear a sheath gown with success. Although a bride may have a wedding gown style in mind, it is a good idea to try on a number of different silhouettes to find the one that is most flattering. Bridal salon employees are usually well-versed in matching body type to a gown and can prove invaluable when selecting a dress. n

Modified A-line A balance between a traditional A-line and a more fitted gown, the modified A-line does not flare out as much. But it does flare out enough from the waist to hide areas around the hips and thighs. This is another good choice for a wide array of figures.

aith plays an important role in many people’s lives, perhaps even more so when it comes time to celebrate a wedding. However, couples who do not share the same faith may have to make some compromises. Although romantic feelings may transcend faith, heritage and other factors that make people so different, individuals who are quite religious often find that there are some challenges to getting married to someone outside their own faith. Depending on the faith, some religions will not honor a wedding that does not conform to their strict guidelines for a wedding within the faith. Oftentimes, this means that both participants need to have been raised according to the faith, including meeting certain religious milestones throughout their lives. For example, Catholics must have been baptised, received communion and been confirmed under the auspices of the Catholic church before being allowed to marry. They must present official certificates of these sacraments in order to receive a religious Catholic wedding. Those of the Jewish faith may believe in a “bashert,” a belief that everyone has a soul mate. According to the Talmud, 40 days before a male child is conceived a voice from heaven announces whose daughter he is going to

marry. In Yiddish, this perfect match is called “bashert,” a word meaning fate or destiny. The bashert is typically one who is also Jewish. To handle the intricacies of an interfaith marriage, it is wise to speak to clergy in your respective religions to see what will be required of you as a couple. There could be workarounds, depending on what the couple decide. Some couples feel it is in their best interest if either one of them converts to the other’s religion so that the ceremony is easier. Others choose to hold two distinct religious ceremonies if the officiants are lenient in their rules to allow it to happen. In other cases, couples feel it is better to have a non-denominational wedding to avoid any obstacles. Even though this ceremony will not be sanctioned by either church, the couple can still choose to include prayers and customs specific to their faiths in the ceremony. Many couples decide that their mutual love and happiness is reason enough for an interfaith wedding, even if that means sacrificing acceptance by their clergy and church. Interfaith couples should begin wedding planning early to discover what will be expected of them to have the wedding they desire. n

Don’t underestimate importance of wedding day photography


imousines, gowns and flowers are each important components of a couple’s wedding day. But few aspects of a wedding are as important as photog-

raphy. Thanks to the popularity of social media, some couples may overlook the importance of hiring a professional photographer for their weddings. Although there is something to be said for candid images captured on phones and personal cameras, the pictures a couple will cherish and look back on for decades are best supplied by a professional photographer. Even if you will be hiring a videographer and having photos snapped by loving friends and family, professional wedding photography is an ideal way to immortalize this special day. Most couples say “I do” with the hopes of staying together forever, giving them only one chance to capture the magic of the wedding day on film. Leaving

photos to chance by hiring an amateur photographer may be something couples regret down the road. Professional photographers use high-quality equipment that will produce much better results than photos snapped on the average digital camera. Plus, the photographer has experience with posing, placement of arms and legs, head tilting, and lighting, each of which ensures that the photos come out looking as good as possible. While a friend may not notice an eyesore in the rear of a photo composition when taking a picture, a professional may notice something that will stand out and make adjustments. Furthermore, professional photographers tend to have an eye for interesting angles to capture images that may be overlooked. Rather than a series of portraits at one level, he or she may climb high for aerial shots or lie on the floor for a different perspective. The results may be unique vantage points that set your wedding photos apart from those of the masses. Price alone should not dictate which photographer to hire. Although wedding budgets are often stretched,

SPECIAL SECTION (Continued from preceding page)

skimping on a photography allotment may result in subpar results. That doesn’t mean you need to hire the most expensive photographer, but couples should realize the value of experience and professional equipment, both of which tend to come at a premium price. Do not expect to pay package prices that would be offered at department or discount stores. Many photographers are artists who take their work very seriously. A photographer will be spending all day with you capturing hundreds of photos. Each image will then need to be reviewed, repositioned and potentially enhanced or retouched. This time-consuming attention to detail is often what dictates the higher costs of a very good photographer. Keep in mind that photographers are unique individuals and not all the visions and styles of particular artists will meld with your own perception of how you want the wedding to look. Expressing your expectations and comparing your goals with the portfolios of photographers will help you find the best fit. Do not feel shy about asking for testimonials from past customers or talking to couples you know who have recently gotten married and asking for a recommendation.

-- financing cars, homes, retail purchases -- a wedding loan may just be another shovelful of soil on a financial grave. The consensus among financial experts is that it is better to scale back the wedding or postpone it until you can save money the old-fashioned way instead of taking out a loan. But if a loan seems the only option, here are some tips. * Shop around on a wedding loan, just as with any other loan. Find the best rates and terms before settling on a lender. * Decide how much you can afford to pay back within 2 to 3 years and how much the monthly payment will be. Then take out the loan only in that amount. * Figure out which portions of the wedding can be scaled back to make the finances work. * See if options like refinancing a home or borrowing from family would be better than taking out a loan. * Look at banks, credit unions and even programs sponsored through your employer to compare rates on loans. * Wedding loans may be secured or unsecured. A home or car can serve as a form of security in a secured loan. Unsecured wedding loans do not require a form of security. * Personal loans, like wedding loans, generally have low annual percentage rates.It may be worth it to take out the loan rather than using a credit card for financing because the card’s rates could be double. Keep in mind that a wedding loan -- even if it comes at a low interest rate -- means you’re starting out your new life together with a large amount of debt for an event that lasts one day. Think about whether the wedding of your dreams is worth using that joint checking account to pay off months of wedding debt. n

ngaged couples about to take a trip down the aisle are increasingly choosing to pay for the wedding themselves. Where it used to be tradition for the bride’s parents to handle the bill for the occasion, today the responsibility for funding has largely fallen into the hands of the prospective bride and groom. To meet the financial demands of the modern wedding, some individuals turn to loans for financing a portion or all of the wedding. You may question whether this is a good idea. As with any situation, there are pros and cons. The same can be said about a wedding loan. The following are some factors you will need to consider before taking out a loan. One of the most important things to realize is that a wedding loan, like any loan, will need to be paid back and interest fees will be included. What that means is that, by the end of the payback period, you will have spent several thousand dollars more on the loans than the original principal amount when interest is added in. If you’re taking out a loan because you’ve already gone above budget on wedding expenses, a loan may push that budget even further into the red. That being said, there are some instances where a loan may be an option that works for a couple. For example, couples who anticipate considerable monetary gifts from guests attending the wedding can offset the cost of the loan with those gifts. Some couples might begin their professional careers after their wedding, which will increase their salary enough to repay the loan quickly. Others may actually have the money for the wedding, but want to use a loan as a way to establish strong joint credit as a new couple. However, many couples take out loans because they simply cannot afford their dream wedding. In a world where many people already live beyond their means

Fall into this Trap

The Crab Trap 2 Broadway, Somers Point

Relying on quality and consistency, and constantly catering to the whims of its vast clientele, has kept the Crab Trap in Somers Point doing business for decades.


food & drink >>


By Frank Gabriel •

The expansion has resulted in a huge, sprawling venture — the Crab Trap may now accomodate up to 400 customers. Every item gets measured, says Wallace, according to a specific recipe, ensuring identical results time after time. During the busy summer season it is not uncommon for the Crab Trap to provide up to 2,000 “covers” — restaurant lingo for the number of plates delivered —between lunch and dinner. That sizeable volume allows price points to be kept reasonable, based on a combination of purchasing power and more than four decades of experience in the restaurant industry. @acweekly

As an example, they will typically utilize between 200 and 300 pounds of lump crab meat in a couple of days, ensuring the freshness of that crucial ingredient at all times. So it makes sense when he tells us that among his favorite items are “anything with crab cakes” often accented by unique touches, like a southwestern version or another adding fresh lobster meat. From the Barnegat Light fishery, Wallace has been purchasing fresh swordfish, with regulated numbers of that species now recov-

ered from earlier issues created by the overfishing of undersized stock. Like many other chefs and restaurateurs, Wallace did not serve swordfish for several years due to industry concerns about the future of the species, which is back to being at healthy levels. The majority of Wallace’s scallops are also sourced locally, from southern waters off Cape May. His kitchen often presents them atop seasonal risotto, like a recent Jersey summer corn-and-tomato version of the classic Italian rice delicacy. Other signature creations include the Crab Trap’s creamy crab bisque — characterized on the bill of fare as “The house favorite”— clams casino and both that aforementioned au gratin and its culinary first cousin, crab imperial. Daily specials are just that, offering “the freshest fish and seafood we can find and utilize,” says Wallace. With a core of intensely loyal regular customers whose expectations always remain quite high, Wallace admits that keeping them happy is always a challenge. “I think to stay successful in this business you have to be open to change and keep current,” he says. Speaking of culinary trends, he and the kitchen staff are presently in the process of putting a gluten-free menu together that customers should expect to see sometime in the near future. That flexibility is all a part of what has made the Crab Trap such a respected enterprise for so many years. “It’s like reinventing yourself — don’t rest on items we once had or those that don’t move anymore,” he says. “Keep innovative. “It’s a tough business. We just try to give customers a great product for a competitive price.” ■

ander in through the back door of Somers Point’s iconic Crab Trap seafood restaurant early in the morning and you might be in for a bit of a surprise. At just a few minutes past 9am on an otherwise quiet late-September Monday, the place is already abuzz with activity. Prep cooks busy themselves cleaning shrimp, fish and vegetables while another staffer carefully ladles a béchamel topping over their popular crab au gratin. All told, close to a dozen personnel are already hard at work despite the early hour. Opened by Jack Wallace in 1967, the location was formerly known as Maenner’s Café, a casual beer and sandwich eatery. Now in his late seventies, Wallace still remains active in the business to this day. His son is secondgeneration owner/operator Ken Wallace, who tell us “we ran it with the same footprint for about 10 years and then slowly started expanding and adding on.” That growth has resulted in a huge, sprawling venture — the Crab Trap may accommodate up to 400 customers — with a spacious bar and lounge, multiple seating areas, and a seasonal bayfront deck bar named in honor of its founder called “Crabby Jack’s.” Currently employing more than 100 people year-round, the Crab Trap has achieved a unique status among seafood restaurants at the southern Jersey shore, which did not happen by accident. “I think that you have to be here,” Ken Wallace says. “It’s a hands-on business, seven days a week. You really have to devote yourself.” Key personnel reflect that philosophy. Chef Rick Kern is a veteran of more than 30 years and general manager Dan Cericola over 25. Consistency is another Crab Trap maxim.

Named after Joe’s mother, Roberta’s is “all about the food,” with accolades abounding for his delicious lunches and gourmet dinner selections. His variety of entrees is always prepared with the freshest and finest ingredients available. Chef Joe’s culinary expertise has been described as a blend of Asian and European techniques known as “Pacific Rim Fusion.” Formerly a catering chef at the popular Philadelphia establishment Di Bruno Bros, Chef Joe is putting his all into his “New Fall Menu” — incorporating all of his experience and improvisational know-how with the aspiration of making Roberta’s the most out-

standing restaurant in our area. “We feel this is our opportunity to capture diners for a lifetime,” he says. “We’re not holding anything back — where else can you get Osso Bucco and Sake Marinated Chilean Sea Bass?” All meats, seafood and poultry are the freshest available and prepared on premises, including fresh-roasted turkey, top-round roast beef, fresh-cut fries and chips, over-the-top salads and more.

>> CONT’D FROM PG. 25 to rent them every night. It was exciting in the beginning. People would come to the club and hand me $100 and ask me to get them a seat. It was a 165-seat room; nobody’s further than 40 feet away, but that’s what people did then. It was great. We had fun. After six years, I took myself away from the door because I was getting a little edgy. I never worked the door again after that. Six years was too much. I was wearing every hat you could possibly imagine: marketing, public relations and comedy. I’m just looking at pictures of all of the talent that has come through your rooms. Yes, We’ve been very blessed. And the fun of it, of course, is watching these guys move on to all sorts of craziness. This is my ninth president since we’ve been here [at the Tropicana]. Every three years [it seems] we get a new president at Tropicana. Every new president, I have to sell myself because he hasn’t seen the 30 years [of success]. I have to prove it. It has been fun and also very difficult. To survive the politics of the casino is pretty good. I had to duck and change colors, but we’re here! When did you first hire Richard Jeni? In the ’90s. He was from the New York area. That’s where most of the guys were coming from. We had a contest. We used to do it every year, “Comedy Showdown.” The first one was a disaster because I didn’t screen any of them. We had them report at 2 o’clock Saturday and there was a line out the door. You wouldn’t believe what showed up. We let them all go on stage that night and it was a disaster. The next year we had them come in on Friday and we would do a closed show Saturday — just judges. They’d be weeded out and move on from there. In one of those contests, we actually discovered Ray Romano. I knew from the minute I saw him on stage he was TV material. He was clean, had the right look, the right words, the right everything.

So you started this at 41? Yes. Unlike a lot of kids I went to school with, who would say, ‘I want to be a doctor,’ things like that. I didn’t know what

The ’80s had a high point of comedy clubs sprouting out and there was a lull in the ’90s and then it came back some time in the 2000s? I’d say mid-2000s. Again, this year, they’re starting to pop up again. Times, makes it difficult. More than 10 clubs have taken a run at me here and none of them have survived. Certainly, the Revel has this Social Night on Thursday and the Borgata’s been doing comedy for a very long time — but although the Borgata is a nice place, it isn’t this. That’s a just a big room. This is an atmosphere. It’s like a comedy club you’d find in New York or California. It’s probably one of the top rooms in the country in look, style, and the comedy we get here. So a guy like Kevin James, he just headlined at the Borgata and Drew Carey is about to. We’d get them on the way up and we’d get them on the way down. Tim Allen and Ray Romano alone, everything they’ve ever done. I think the biggest mistake I’ve ever made was that I missed the chance to become Ray’s manager. I could’ve been his manager at one point, but in retrospect — and I know his manager very well — I know he has a very good manager and he probably did a better job than I would’ve done. Would the club have suffered if you were his manager? Would you have been able to put in the same amount of time? Well, I’d be a millionaire. I wouldn’t care at that point. That would’ve taken me off on a whole different tangent. Do you ever hear from those big folks: Rosie, Ray, or Tim Allen? Not really. I mean Drew Carey; my wife was very friendly with him. She actually helped him in his career. When he was taking off for Hollywood he said, ‘Don’t worry Norma, I’m never going to forget you. You have my phone numbers and all that.’ Well his phone number would change. It is very encouraging to know that the people we were using were the right people. Back in the day, one appearance on Carson, you could be a home run. Now, it’s a whole different bag. With all of the comedy situations going on it is very difficult. Which brings us to Kevin Downey Jr. Here’s a guy who came to me five years ago and he had some good ideas, but his whole act was put together wrong. We would talk and I’d give him advice. Now he was just on America’s Got Talent. Do you get comics from agents? I don’t use agents because it just confuses the issue. Once the agents are involved you have to play whisper down the lane. No, they usually call the Comedy Stop and find out what they have to do. Not send a tape! Ray Romano’s first live audience was here? Yes, with Kevin [Downey] I worked with him for five years. I helped him put something together and he was making people laugh a lot. I took him out of his clothes and put him in a suit. That may sound strange, but you know the comic Bill Hicks? Well, he was here and he would wear a tuxedo because he wanted to be like Elvis. He felt Vegas and Atlantic City were places he should be wearing a tux-

Bill Hicks? Did he smoke on stage? I think back then you were allowed to. Well, here’s my best story about Bill Hicks. I opened this little comedy club in Georgetown. It was The Old Cellar Door [at] 34th and M Street. He was there a week when I was there. We didn’t have a hotel or a bar — it was a non-alcoholic place. It’s after the show so I set up a courtesy cart: Jack Daniels and Dewars. So I’m downstairs closing the club and I come up and Bill Hicks and his friend are rolling around in just their underwear on the floor like nuts. None of the booze was left. They were so screwed up. I told them to follow me down the steps and out the door and I locked them out in their underwear. Bill was the character that he is 30 years into this, do you still get a thrill discovering young comedians? Kevin, Jay Black, Dena Blizzard all started here, too. Dena’s under management now. There’s nothing better than sitting in here on a Saturday night watching this thing click. I’ve always used the method of making the audience laugh, even if I don’t like them. The show shouldn’t start 40 minutes in with the headliner. You have to give people their money’s worth. It costs me a little more, but we get repeat business because they know they’re going to get a good show. When I book my guys, I tell them I don’t know what spot I’m putting them in. That’s left up to me. Leave your ego at home, trust me, I know what I’m doing. When we first started I told them they have to take a bow at the end whether they wanted to or not. All three together. If you don’t I won’t pay you. They realized it was show business. Do you miss the era when people wore tuxedos into the club? I do. I miss some of it because when you see people in flipflops and shorts I feel like it’s a different sense of respect. I’m a comfortable guy, though, so if they’re paying their way and having a good time, I guess I don’t mind. A lot has changed in 30 years. This city has changed in 30 years. Some good and some bad, but its progress, I guess. Has running the club lost its glow? Not anywhere near that. We’re trying a couple different promotional things. The 30th has inspired me to come up with new ideas and we’ll have the anniversary the week before Black Friday. It’s going to be a weekend event. Maybe four anniversary shows and possibly a fifth one if they sell out. We’re in negotiations with someone important, but I can’t talk about it this second. We’re looking forward to that. It’s a milestone, certainly, and I have always wondered why the story of the longest running show in Atlantic City hasn’t grown to a larger extent. It doesn’t make sense to me sometimes. Maybe it’s because I don’t have the right PR person. I have enjoyed every minute of it. When the times get tough, it’s tough for everyone. We’ve had a rough couple of years, especially the Atlantic City economy, but I feel that the whole city is coming back. Miss America was a big bonus for everyone. You put on nine comedy shows, seven days a week. What else is the secret to your success? We have the food, terrific help, and good prices. We’re a good experience. Unfortunately, many people know we’re going to be here, so they think they can come some other time. There’s no immediacy. That’s frustrating to me, but it is what it is. ■ see more online @

What did you do before? I was in the restaurant business for a while before that. I also had a real job. I had a big job at General Electric. I wore a suit, had glasses, carried a brief case. I had to bust out of that. That was not me. I looked at the big guy and he was going to have to die before I got his job and I wasn’t waiting around. Or [going] to kill him.

edo. Kevin finally understood it and he’s always helped me for helping him move along. So now, when he got America’s Got Talent going, he’s made the finals and the semi-finals on TV. One of the problems he had was it was in Radio City Music Hall. So he’s coming next week and we’ll promote it.

And Jeni? Richard Jeni [pictured, above] was the most prolific comedy writer of that decade. Nobody was writing like he was. He went on to do some specials, Platypus Man and a few others. They were all great. They were all him. He started to build a big reputation. Unfortunately, he was a troubled man. He called me a month before he passed and he said, ‘Bob, what’s wrong with me? Why aren’t I going as fast as some of these other comics?’ And he was upset. I told him that the problem was that he wouldn’t let anyone run the management side of his show. He wanted to control everything. Be the show and let someone else be the business I said. He wasn’t even doing that bad. A month later, he was gone [Jeni shot himself to death on March 10, 2007]. He was always deep and dark. A lot of comedians have that side. There’s no doubt about it. They’re bringing a lot of sad things to light and making fun of it; that’s how they deal with it. It does take a bit of a dark, reflective personality to do that. Look at Louis Black. He’s funnier than anything, but he’s all about pushing that dark button.

I wanted to be. Finally at 40 I realized what I wanted to do.

Ron Howard’s ‘Rush’ Formula One racers do battle in tribute to 1970s By Lori Hoffman •


on Howard has spent decades developing and evolving his career in show business, which started when he was the adorable little tyke Opie on The Andy Griffith Show. From there he developed into a more grown up TV and film star after his success in America Graffiti (1973), followed by his years on Happy Days. Howard then shifted gears and went in a new direction behind the camera as a movie director. His need for speed goes all the way back to his directorial debut when the king of ultra low budget movies, Roger Corman, allowed the then 22-year-old novice filmmaker to direct Grand Theft Auto (1977), which Howard also wrote and starred in. In the years since, Howard has earned a reputation as an acclaimed, Oscar winning director (he won for A Beautiful Mind) and such other hit films as Cocoon, Backdraft, Parenthood, Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code and Frost/Nixon, the latter earning him a second Academy Award nomination for directing. While Formula One Racing was more popular in the United States in the 1960s and ’70s, including the hit film Grand Prix (1966), Howard felt he could engage the racing fans currently obsessed with NASCAR, with Rush, a true story about Formula One rivals James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), whose clashes both on and off the racetrack made the 1976 season one of the most thrilling and memorable in the sport’s history. @acweekly

Fueled by the spectacular racing sequences, Howard’s film centers on the rivalry, and on this era when the Formula One racers were the Kardashians of the tabloids. Austria’s Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), was the reigning world champion, and was a total professional, cool and methodical. Britain’s James Hunt was a blond playboy who figured since he was putting his life on the line every race should live like he was dying off the track. Working from a script from screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland), whom Howard worked with on Frost/Nixon), Howard noted in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, “He and I did Frost/Nixon together. He’s brilliant in terms of coming up with these really surprisingly entertaining looks at opponents and key moments in their lives. When I heard that he was looking at this story, I just felt like it had a chance to be so fresh, so original, so cinematic, a true story that was fascinating and sort of unexpected.” Howard also expressed his desire to capture the feel of the era. “James Hunt epitomized sex, drugs and rock ’n roll. He could bring the same recklessness of his private life to the track. Niki Lauda was on the vanguard of a new sensibility, the athlete as a professional. Everything he did was calibrated to win. These two very dynamic individuals had two very different approaches but it was a rivalry that defined them as individuals. “The 70s practically play a character in the movie, a reckless spirit that was celebrated. We wanted to capture the glamour of that period and of Formula One racing.” n see more online @
