You Want Some Fun? D

O YOU FEEL AS FORTUNATE AS I do that we live in â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or nearby â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of the hottest entertainment spots on the East Coast? Every week, from the casino showrooms, the lounges, live jazz at local bars and restaurants to area performing arts centers, there are literally dozens of live-entertainment events in the Atlantic City region. Take this week for example â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not only will Lily Tomlin make her Atlantic City debut at the Borgata, but heavy metal band Lamb of God appears at the House of Blues, a mixed-martial arts caged-fighting event takes place at Trump Marina, revue shows continue at the Tropicana and down in Cape May, the Atlantic City Balletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of Dracula will be performed all weekend. Right over in Pomona, at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest jazz pianists plays the Performing Arts Center there on Monday, Oct. 26. You may not be familiar with the name Kenny Barron, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a jazz lover, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve likely heard him before as his gorgeous piano playing has been on hundreds of recordings since he started out in the early 1960s. This living legend was courteous enough to give us an interview (see p. 50) and if you see the show at Stockton, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in for a treat as Barron is coming with a trio that he has never recorded with; it should be a night of many beautiful moments, conjuring up the images of our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich jazz history. Meanwhile, over at Resorts, for one night, you can catch some Halloweenthemed magic as the magic show Haunted Illusions takes place Saturday night (See Mike Pritchardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preview on p. 47). Over at Caesars this week, the Taste of

Emerilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking challenge heats up on select dates. The food competition and cooking demo started up Wednesday and runs on select dates through Nov. 12. See Frank Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preview on p. 37. The food fun continues on Nov. 7 as Borgata presents its big Savor Borgata event, which this year, will feature a topcaliber cast of chefs under the Borgata umbrella, including Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Michael Mina, Michael Schulson, Stephen Kalt and more. Also inside this week, Ray Schweibert provides info on Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pink Angels Night (p. 9) at the Ego Lounge inside the Trump Taj Mahal, David Spatz interviews comic Lily Tomlin (p. 10), Carole Mattessich speaks with a 12-year-old weightlifting champ in our region (p. 28) and Lori Hoffman reviews a local indie film Ice Grill, USA (p. 12). Finally, a reminder about our 35th birthday party. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re invited to the big shindig, which will take place at The Pool at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Nov. 11 from 6-9pm. Come out and celebrate 35 years of this publication (formerly The Whoot!) and help out the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Atlantic City. A $10 ticket includes a food tasting with light fare from the restaurants at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Caesars, Showboat, The Pier Shops at Caesars and Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. There will also be entertainment and drink specials. Find out more online at Go Phils! n

a highly reputed power broker of the southern half of the state, would become the power behind Sweeney. Those in the know will tell you that there is a possibility that history could repeat itself. If Codeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine supporters remain as a block, they could choose to unite with the 17 Republicans and name Tom Kean Jr. to be the new Senate president. Whether it will happen again is anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. But there is that possibility.

Are We Safe From Storms?

The recent doubleheader Northeast rainstorms showed how we should have grave concerns about the safety of the people on the barrier islands in southern New Jersey. The effect of the new moon, strong winds and heavy rain isolated many areas along the seashore. Major roads such as the Black Horse Pike in West Atlantic City, Route 52 into and out of Ocean City and several others were cut off by flooding, causing people to be isolated with no means of getting out. A good example would be those living in Ventnor Heights who were cut off by the flooding of West End Avenue. Many inland areas and island communities had streets that were flooded and cars trapped in them. Unfortunately, there were quite a few who did not listen to the warning about the extremely high tides that we were facing. There has to be a study of what took place over the past weekend, and an effort to figure out what needs to be done to alleviate such problems in the future. There are areas that frequently flood in a normal heavy rain. Those of you who live in those areas should be pounding on the doors of your municipal governments to correct the problems that cause the flooding. Although we have not had a hurricane for many years, this Northeast rain storm double-header showed what could happen to us, if we were to have a hurricane. More must be done to make sure there will be access to outgoing highways in case of any emergency.

Tom Carver, the efficient executive director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, said that the establishment of the Aviation Research and Technology Park (ARTP) is the fifth biggest economic development project in New Jersey. It was stated by those who spoke that this will not only provide more area jobs, but will provide careers for those who will work within the confines of this development. We will also see major university and college sites in our area prepare the engineers, the computer technologists and other high-qualified positions that must be filled by those who will be conducting the research and development for the future of our aviation industry. The development of this project can be attributed to many organizations and people who believed it could happen, and fought through hell and high water to get it to the point that it is now a reality. It is anticipated that there will be buildings completed within an 18- to 24month period. The South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) is currently working on a road that will lead directly from the Atlantic City Expressway to the Atlantic City International Airport and the ARTP. There is also a study underway for a railroad connection that will bring train service to the site. One further note is that one can see the power of George Norcross, the former chairman of the Camden County Democratic Party, with the selection Notes of Interest of people from his area of the state to fill three of our top On Thursday, Oct. 22, at 8:44pm, you may see the landing of the first regularly scheduled international flight at local agenciesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top spots.

Event Advises Cancer Awareness

VA (Putumayo)

On Tuesday, Oct. 27, AtlantiCare Women’s Health & Wellness Services will host its sixth annual Breast Health Signature Event as part of October’s being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event takes place at the Sheraton Atlantic City. A $55 registration fee includes blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar screenings, chair massages and makeup demonstrations, dinner, door prizes and complimentary valet parking. Breast and gynecological cancer survivors will receive a special gift. The event starts at 4pm and speaker presentations start at 6:30pm, with the keynote speaker being best-selling author and breast cancer survivor Barbara Delinsky. The Boston-raised Delinsky will share her personal survival story and sign copies of her three books, among them Uplift: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors. All proceeds from Uplift go toward cancer research. “Uplift is a handbook of practical tips and upbeat anecdotes that I compiled with the help of 350 breast cancer survivors, their families and friends,” says Delinsky on her Web site. “These survivors just blew me away, and they gave me the book that I wish I’d had way back when I was diagnosed. Every cent [of the book’s sales] has gone to my charitable foundation, which funds an ongoing research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital.” To register or receive more information, call 1-888-569-1000 or visit — Ray Schweibert

Music Pier of ‘Horrors’

Usually, when the blustery winds of October hit the Boardwalk, the Ocean City Theater Co. and the Ocean City Pops have called it a season. But as the city actively promotes a “second season” of events this year, the two have come together to put on a rarity for the city’s Music Pier — a Halloween show. And If you’re going to do a Halloween production, you might as well make it one of the best, such as the Broadway hit Little Shop of Horrors. “It’s a show I’ve always wanted to do and it fits in really well with all the hayrides and Halloween events the city is doing,” says Michael Hartman, artistic director of the company. The show stars Justin Macijewski, a company vet, as Seymour and Alyssa Larderer (recently seen in Fame at the Tropicana) as Audrey. But the real star is always Audrey II, the villainous man-eating plant. “It’s always a challenge to have an effect like her on stage, but in this case they actually rent out Audreys,” Hartman says. “They have several that travel the country because there are always a lot of productions of Little Shop.” The show will be presented Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2pm. Tickets are $15. Call 525-9248. — Mike Pritchard

Jeremy Delaware A: The show was awesome! I’ve been seeing Social Distortion since one of their 1990 shows.

Kirsten Red Bank, N.J. A: The show was really good; they were awesome!

Ted Red Bank, N.J. A: Yeah, it was so good — definitely worth the drive down to AC!


Taj Thinks Pink

On Friday, Oct. 23, the Taj Mahal’s Ego Lounge will host Pink Angels Night to support breast cancer awareness By Ray Schweibert

Taj, comedian Ron White of Blue Collar Comedy Tour fame was having a good ol’ time dancing with The Angels. “He hung out, we got some pictures with him — it was nice to see that,” says Mulhern. Gietka helped put together an Angels audition in New York City that drew hopefuls from all over the country, and was under the supervision of choreographer and Angels’ lead vocalist Gina Cannuscio. Known as “Gina C” and the lone blonde of the six Angels (including one who deejays with two male musicians while the other five girls sing and dance), Cannucscio is the only original member from the summer 2008 show. “We auditioned hundreds to put this group together and sort of started from scratch with the first ingredient being Gina,” says Mulhern. “It’s something Steve [Gietka] wanted, so we all talked about how we could improve this and we proceeded to do that. It went beyond our expectations.” The Angels perform renditions of the Pussycat Dolls’ song “Buttons,” AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long,” The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” and others. “It’s like going to any female headliner show — Britney Speers, Rihanna, Madonna, Pink — except this show is free,” says Mulhern. n

NE OF THE SMASH HITS OF the summer — so much so that it’s been extended at least another six months into March — was the all-female vocal dance group The Angels performing at the Taj Mahal’s Ego Lounge. The seductively donned, six-girl ensemble generally performs every Thursday through Sunday from 10pm-2am, and will be the feature act this Friday evening (6-10pm) in what the Taj is touting as “Pink Angels Night.” The event will be hosted by WAYV’s Diane Mitchell and WZXL’s Michael James, and benefits the Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Assistance Fund. There will be pink-themed drinks and hors d’oevres, a silent auction and a pink-jack (blackjack) tournament. “The executive board of the Taj was the driving force behind this, and from what I understand it’s a charity that [Taj Mahal general manager] Rosalind Krause is very passionate about,” says Angels producer Dan Mulhearn. “We’re glad to lend our support.” The Angels arrived on the A.C. scene in summer 2008, but what event-goers will witness Friday night, and what Ego Lounge patrons have enjoyed since the start of summer 2009, is nearly a completely different act. “Last year’s version was basically a group I brought in from Chicago, and what we learned from that experience was that there were elements of the act that we liked, but we also saw an opportunity to take it to a higher level,” says Mulhern, owner of the Atlantic City-based Daniel Mulhern Entertainment, Inc. “The producer out of Chicago and I sort of joined forces to present an amped-up version of The Angels for 2009, and [Trump Resorts vice president of entertainment] Steve Gietka did a tremendous job theming the lounge with these incredible female platform club dancers, so everywhere you look there’s something for the senses. I don’t think there’s anything quite like Ego anywhere in the city.” Two of the four Ego club dancers are stationed in front of the lounge entrance near the Mark G. Etess Arena, and their lit silhouettes are seen in motion through curtains outside the lounge. There are two others dancing on a long platform adjacent to Ego’s spacious bar next to the gaming-area entrance. On a recent Friday night and fresh off a performance at the


Lily Tomlin Still Staying in Character(s) By David J. Spatz


F THE DOZENS OF CHARACTERS that have sprung from the fertile mind of Lily Tomlin during the past 40 years, her favorite will probably come as a surprise. It’s not the prim, puckish and sarcastic Ernestine the Operator. Nor is precocious, six-year-old Edith Ann and her rude noises, or Trudy, the homeless, plain-talking bag lady, or Pervis Hawkins, the black soul singer reportedly patterned after Luther Vandross. The characters closest to Tomlin’s heart are Lud and Marie, parents held comedic prisoners in their own home by a teenager who played punk rock at deafening levels and once referred to herself as “Dracula’s daughter.” Unlike her fictitious characters, Lud and Marie were based on people Tomlin knew quite well. “Essentially, they were sort of me writing about my mother and dad who were visited upon by two kids like me and my brother,” Tomlin says with a big laugh. “They basically gave up on us because they couldn’t make us do anything.” Nothing in Tomlin’s background would portend a career as an iconic figure in American comedy. Her parents were working-class folks who eked out a living while raising two kids in a

one-bedroom apartment in inner-city Detroit, where her younger brother, Richard, once sawed their couch into three pieces — so the family could have sectional furniture. By the time Tomlin and her brother were in their teens, her parents realized there was little they could do to bring them in line. So her dad, a factory worker, and her mom, a nurse’s aid, simply went to bed not knowing what the morning would bring. “My brother was hilarious,” she recalls, laughing again at the recollections. “He would wear an old smoking jacket he bought at the thrift store, put a fan in the window to blow the sheers, drink water from a martini glass and pretend he was living in a penthouse in New York. And he would do it full out, too. It was like he was creating his own parallel universe.” Looking back, though, Tomlin realizes her parents really were among her earliest comedy influences, along with a grade school teacher. Her mother was very witty, she says, and her father was just naturally comedic. Combine that with a teacher who used to send her class off for the weekend by reading dialectic stories with all kinds of voices and you realize the building blocks for Tomlin’s career were there through-

out her childhood. Tomlin, who makes her long-awaited Atlantic City debut Saturday night (Oct. 24) at Borgata, began doing stand-up comedy in the 1960s. She caught her big break when she was cast as part of the comedy ensemble on the trailblazing NBC variety series Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In. It was there that she introduced characters like Ernestine and Edith Ann, who remain staples in her standup act and served her well in three Broadway shows that have earned her two Tony Awards to go along with the six Emmys and a Grammy Award she’s received for her broad body of work as a performer and a writer. Tomlin has kept her characters current and continues to develop new material for her comedy alter-egos. Ernestine, for instance, left the phone company years ago after the breakup of Ma Bell. Ernestine went on to host an Internet chat show, where she talked to former President George Bush and caught former Vice President Dick Cheney “hiding behind the curtains and using the f-word,” Tomlin says with a big laugh as she recalls the bit. So where is Ernestine today? “She works for a health insurance company denying health care to everyone,” Tomlin explains. Lud and Marie are now grandparents whose have been blessed with a granddaughter cut from the same punkish

cloth as “Dracula’s Daughter.” Only Edith Ann remains frozen in time. She’s still six-years-old, but she lives in the present, not in the past. “She programs her mother’s iPod,” Tomlin says. In most cases, the material Tomlin writes for her characters is cleverly disguised social commentary. “Actually, I consider everything social commentary, even if it’s just commentary about our mundane everyday lives,” Tomlin tells me from her Los Angeles home during a chat that was often interrupted by Tomlin’s warm and rich laugh that sounded wholly genuine and not forced. Although she enjoyed enormous success with her one-woman stage show The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, Tomlin, who recently turned 70, isn’t sure she has another run of the show left in herself. “If I do it again, it’ll be to show everyone that I can do it again,” she says with another laugh. “Maybe I’ll do it when I’m 80.” Lily Tomlin performs in the Music Box at Borgata Saturday at 9pm. n

Festival Flicks Underground A.C. in ‘Ice Grill, USA’; Clive Owen’s ‘Boys’ By Lori Hoffman


HIS IS A TALE OF FILM festival movies, one from the big name Toronto International film fest starring Clive Owen, and one from the recently concluded Atlantic City Cinefest presented by the Downbeach Film Festival. Let’s begin with Ice Grill, USA, a labor of love by co-directors and co-screenwriters Greg Santarsiero and Mark Bernardi. The filmmakers spent part of their childhood in Brigantine where they met and became friends. Now they are part of the independent film movement, which is really an underground film movement. Just like self-produced bands that make and distribute their own records, Santarsiero and Bernardi write and direct their own movies, then sell them on the Web and on the film festival circuit, hoping to finance more movies off the DVD sales. Occasionally this guerilla, ultra low-budget filmmaking breaks out into the mainstream with a theatrical run, ala Ice Grill USA HHHH Written & directed by Greg Santarsiero and Mark Bernardi The Boys Are Back HHHH Directed by Scott Shine; rated PG-13

The Blair Witch Project. Ice Grill, USA is a surprisingly well-acted tale that feels like a low-budget take on Mean Streets (A.C. style), about a couple of brothers from Atlantic City who are looking to cash in on the action. Their job is to cater to the special needs of certain casino high rollers whose desires aren’t exactly mainstream or legal. Auggie Logan (Connor Fox), while beginning his new gig working with his brother in the high-roller game, is also moonlighting as a drug dealer with his childhood pal Cesar (Michael Angelo Ortiz). Despite his illegal activities he still has some scruples, and is trying to balance making dirty money with living by the working-class principals he learned from his dad. His brother Bobby (Mark Kochanowicz) thinks scruples are for chumps. Auggie loves Cesar’s sister Claudia (Denise Ramirez), but she is playing a dangerous game as the gal pal of two gangster wannabes. It is an explosive set of circumstances and several characters will get caught in the crossfire. Ice Grill, USA is a cut above the standard self-made movies, thanks in large part to a solid script and the casting of professional actors, rather than all family and

friends. The filmmakers wisely decided to use professional casting with the locally based Wiest-Barron-Ryan casting agency. Ice Grill, USA is film that shows that Greg Santarsiero and Mark Bernardi have enough drive and talent to one day have a film that finds its way to a mainstream release.

Grief-Stricken Parenting Clive Owen changes gears from his recent high profile Hollywood work (Duplicity, The International) to a low key and effective film about death, parenting and working through the pain, The Boys Are Back, which played at the Toronto Film Festival. Directed by Scott Hicks (Shine) and based on the true events chronicled in the book by Simon Carr, Owen stars as Carr’s stand-in, Joe Warr, a sportswriter

in Australia who has lost the wife he worships and depends on to cancer. He has no clue how to be a single parent to his sixyear-old son Artie (Nicholas McAnulty) and Harry (George MacKay), his teenage son from a previous marriage. His solution is to deal with his grief by tossing aside discipline and letting the boys run hog wild while he joins in the fun as a willing participant, rather than as a parent. This solution vexes his in-laws and the poor young woman from Artie’s school who is looking to Joe for a romance, and instead winds up with additional childrearing responsibilities without any perks. The acting is first rate in this film that presents some inevitable clichés from the grief-dealing playbook, but also tosses in the occasional change of pace zinger to keep the film from drowning in sorrow. The triumph of learning how to be a good father is the payoff that evolves from the grief, making for a quietly uplifting finale. n

How’s Cozy? O By Jerry Blavat

NCE AGAIN, GREETINGS AND salutations. For you folks who were with us for Fabulous ‘50s Weekend in Wildwood, again, a smashing success. Now this weekend, look for yours truly to host a show at Burlington County Community College in Mt. Laurel featuring Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge. Tickets are available at 856-222-9311, ext. 1415, and at the door Oct. 25. And the following Saturday, Nov. 7, we open up Memories in Margate for a special event to raise money for underprivileged children in Ocean City. Tickets will be available at the door — hope to see you there. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

I couldn’t think of a better Christmas gift for our friends than tickets to the Jan. 30 show at the Kimmel Center. Would you have any information on who some of the performers will be? Not wanting to lose the opportunity to secure our seats, we just purchased a block — Mike of tickets in the blind. Regards

This will mark the 50th anniversary of the Geator’s career on the air, and our 19th show. Artists being considered: the return of Darlene Love, the Skyliners, Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge, Jay Black, the Five Satins — just to name a few. Needless to say, every one of these at one time or another have played the Kimmel and brought the house down. We should have our lineup complete within two weeks. So by all means, get your tickets early, because this is sure to be another sellout.

Your dad is recalling the version by trumpeter Eddie Calvert, which came out at the same time as Eddie Fisher’s version, in January 1954. Both made the Top 10, with Fisher’s version reaching

A Geator Gold Christmas CD is on the back burner, but look for the new ‘50 Years of Musical Memories’ CD. No. 1 in the U.S. and Calvert’s version No. 1 in Great Britain. But the original version, “O Mein Papa,” goes all the way back to 1939, when it was written for a German musical, and it was a huge hit even back then. How about giving some thought to a Geator Gold Christmas CD with all your favorite Christmas songs just in case I get “Snowbound for Christmas”? — Bill Stinson (“Kenny Rogers”)

That’s on the back burner, but with our 50th anniversary in January, look for our new CD called 50 Years of Musical Memories, taking you back to the very beginning and going up to the present, including the music and excitement that happens every summer at Memories in Margate, the singles that A group of fellows who meet at the Cherry I’ve recorded during my career, and the Hill Mall are mixed up about Cozy Morley. hits that we were responsible for introIs he still in good health or not (to perform, ducing. Stay tuned and we’ll let you etc.)? Thank you — Tom Darro, Mt. Laurel know when it’s available. n Cozy is still going strong in his 80s and lives right in your area with his wife, Bobbi. He has always kept himself in tiptop shape and looks great, but I don’t believe he is performing these days. And how about this: I go back with Cozy to when I was a senior at Bishop Neumann in South Philly and booked him for our prom along with Gloria Mann and Fisher & Marks.

of weightlifting can do. Also, it doesn’t make you huge. The Olympics have a two-lift event: the snatch, and the clean and jerk. Going for the Olympics would be great. If I had the opportunity to represent my county, I would love that.

Interview by Carole Mattessich

N HONORS STUDENT WITH renaissance features and a megawatt smile, 12-year-old Deirdre Lynzsch loves to listen to Jack Johnson and Christina Aguilera — when she’s not playing varsity football for the Somers Point Sharks or competing for a national weightlifting ranking. Her mom says that when Deirdre was six, “I told her football is for the boys, but if she still wanted to play the following year, she could. The next year, her brother was suiting up, and she came out with her cleats on. She said, ‘you promised!’ I brought her to the field and asked the coach to humor us. When I came back, he said, ‘Hey, she’s really good!’”

more reason to continue. I was never really a very big fan of girlie things, cheerleading and putting on nail polish and stuff. But you’re very beautiful – you must know that? Thank you, but beauty isn’t everything. Someday when my Prince Charming comes along, it might mean more. Football gave me a lot more reason to stay strong and fit, than if I were just worrying about my appearance.

Tell me about being the only girl on a team. I’ve gotten used to it, and the boys are fine with it now. We’re friends. The first year, some people didn’t even realize I was a girl, because I braided my hair and You’re involved in some demanding sports. Well, I was always really strong, and I tucked it in. Some boys wouldn’t come hung out with my brother Timmy and after me when they realized I was a girl, the boys a lot.

Kind Gestures By Whitney Ullman


ALWAYS SAY HOW SMALL gestures can make a big difference and I wanted to share with you a few key examples. We are all human and we all crave positive attention. Because we know this, then it should be easier to communicate with each other, right? Well it’s not so easy, but hopefully these gestures will help guide you on the right path to bringing happiness to yourself and to others. First gesture: remember to smile as much as possible. Statistics show that even when you are alone and depressed, just forcing yourself to smile could put you in a better mood. Smiling is a natural way of showing someone you care without having to verbally say it. Smiling can make a difference in someone else’s day just by passing by and giving a smile. It acknowledges that they exist. Bottom line — smiling is contagious and many of us want to catch it!

Another gesture could be paying for someone’s toll, or buying someone a coffee. Over the summer, my sister was having a rough morning so she decided to visit my husband and me on the beach in Margate. She needed time to relax and de-stress. On her way over the Margate Bridge, she took out money to pay and it turned out that the car in front of her paid for her toll. Now that toll is $1.50, which is a pretty hefty amount, but that small gesture turned my sister’s annoying morning into a great day. Another gesture would be to verbally tell someone how you feel. It doesn’t monetarily cost anything, but it can certainly go a long way. It could be as big as professing your love for someone to something as small as just saying “thank you.” I have learned that it is important to acknowledge people even for the smallest things because too many times in life we either forget or we let these opportunities

pass us by and then we feel it is too late. It is never too late, just do it.

Whitney’s Radar

Reality shows are still really popular, especially the ones that involve restaurants and cooking. I love watching these experienced chefs whip up a dish as if it is so simple and they do it with all fresh and easy-to-find ingredients all within a certain time frame. These chefs do their thing with so much confidence and class. Isn’t it funny, when we watch these experienced chefs make great dishes, how we can almost taste and smell the aroma right through the TV? This happened to me this past Sunday when I had the pleasure of watching the Iron Chef America episode featuring SeaBlue’s new executive chef Anthony Amoroso. I watched the episode at a viewing party inside the restaurant’s private dining room at The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. In the episode, which we watched live, Amoroso took on Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. The task was to make different variations of the fish Bronzino. In the end, Amoroso’s spread

earned him more points than his competitor and so he won the challenge. Amoroso, who was in attendance, finally got to break the silence about his win, which was taped “a long time ago,” according to Amoroso. (This was the first time his friends and family were notified of the outcome and we have it on video; check it out online at Amoroso is a New Jersey native (Jersey City), but he has had the opportunity to work for some fabulous restaurants in New York and in Las Vegas. Now he’s back home! n

Kitchen Commander Bam! The ‘Taste of Emeril’s Cooking Challenge’ starts a four-week run this week at Caesars By Frank Gabriel


E W O R L E A N S - B A S E D restaurateur Emeril Lagasse — anointed by fellow food luminary Mario Batali as no less than “The most famous chef in recorded history” — debuts his latest entertainment concept, Taste of Emeril’s Audience Participation Cooking Challenge, right here (it started Wednesday, Oct. 21). Caesars Atlantic City’s Circus Maximus Theater will be the locale, and popular Food Network personality Marc Summers (Unwrapped) serves as host, kicking off a four-week run, through Nov. 12. The concept is simple; selected members of the audience will be given opportunities to perform on-stage with industry professionals serving as their assistant chefs. The tasks chosen for them are remarkably similar to what one would expect in either a culinary-school environment or a typical restaurant kitchen. The catch: literally anyone from the audience can be selected, and this gameshow format should serve to keep everyone on alert and paying close attention. Winners can anticipate prizes that include fine dining at Caesars and its oceanic affiliate, The Pier Shops at Caesars. The experience is designed to be personal, as characterized by Joe Domenico, senior vice president and general manager of Caesars Atlantic City. “Caesars strives to give its customers exclusive entertainment experiences. Taste of Emeril’s will give customers the opportunity to see first hand, what it’s like to cook in Emeril’s kitchen.”

The ‘Challenge’ set

A short list of those potential challenges provided to us includes a “pan flip technique,” with teams of three men and three women. Utilizing six frying pans and 20 pre-cooked pancakes, contestants will be asked to flip the cakes over an obstacle. The top two men and women will then be given the opportunity to continue on into the elimination round. The second test is on egg technique, and should sound familiar to those fans of Bravo’s Top Chef series. Four contestants will be chosen to participate, each of them cracking two eggs into a bowl. They will then be required to properly ‘separate’ the ovum into different con-

tainers, leaving as little of the yolk and white together as is possible. Completing this task, they will turn to a pair of egg whites, preset for them in cold copper bowls. These are to be whipped with whisks, the initial step in creating meringues and mousses, for a specified time. The three best here will also qualify for later eliminations. Our favorite competition is, naturally, the tasting element. We really like the selection of small bites to be sampled by contestants, including: chicken, papaya, bleu cheese and octopus (can’t wait to see if A: anyone can identify that last item, a Mediterranean staple, and B: their price-

less reactions upon finding out what it actually was.) One winner will join the others in a pair of elimination challenges. The first involves a chef-prepared dish, in which two men and two women will assist. The second elimination will begin with a chef demonstration on the use of a pastry bag and frosting.Two contestants will then fill their own pastry dispensers and decorate a blank cake based on a common theme given. While this is going on, the chef will prepare a lemon meringue dessert for sampling later. Particulars of the final challenge for the evening — dubbed the Big Bam Challenge — were not available as of press time. Which, for us at least, makes this all the more intriguing. What will they come up with? Guess you’ll just have to be there to find out. Members of the audience not chosen won’t be left out of the interactive fun, as each and every one will be able to try some of the food created. While Lagasse himself isn’t present for the events, he will welcome guests and assist competitors via on-screen video. If you want to be a part of Taste of Emeril’s at Caesars, shows are on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 2pm and Thursdays at 7pm. There will be additional shows on Friday, Nov. 6, and Saturday, Nov. 7, at 7pm. Tickets are $35 and may be purchased by calling 800-736-1420 or online at n E-mail Frank Gabriel at

‘There are several new illusions in this show. In fact we’re using a brand new illusion in Atlantic City.’



By Michael Pritchard











‘Haunted Illusions’

Halloween M




Where: Resorts Superstar Theater When: Saturday, Oct. 24, 8pm How Much: $20



Magician David Caserta spooks up the Superstar Theater


AVID CASERTA IS THE KIND OF GUY WHO can walk through solid sheets of steel, make people vanish into thin air and even conjure up some spooky spirits for his Halloween magic show Haunted Illusions. But there is one trick he’s never been able to pull of — bring his show to Atlantic City. That is until now, as Caserta, 34, will present his Haunted Illusions at Resorts Saturday, Oct. 24. “It’s really a dream come true for me,” he says in a telephone interview with Atlantic City Weekly. “When I was growing up [in Allentown, Pa.] and in school, I would always make it a point to see the magic shows in A.C. If David Copperfield or someone was playing, I’d get my friends together and we’d get a bus, or maybe just hop into a buddy’s car and we’d make a trip of it. “I’ve been to the city so many times and seen so many great illusionists,” he says. “To be up there now doing a show in Atlantic City — like I said, it’s been my dream.” Caserta’s magic show (reasonably priced at $20) touches on some of the classic staple of magicians. He levitates people, makes volunteers from the audience disappear into thin air and even does the old spike through the head in a cabinet trick. But for Haunted Illusions, Caserta is bringing a speciallythemed bag of tricks. “Some of what I do is classic, but I always try to do something a little different, something you haven’t seen before on stage,” he says. “People may see things on TV, but on stage you can do it a different way and make them look at it like they’ve never looked at it before.” “I always try to come up with new illusions in that way,” he says. “There are several new illusions in this show. In fact we’re using a brand new illusion in Atlantic City. Basically it’s a sheet of steel, and we bang on it and show its solid. Then I basically pass through it. It’s something people don’t see very often.” And, unlike most magic shows, this one is timed for the

Halloween season. There will be ghosts flying around and a cemetery stage and even a little spirit channeling. “Basically we’re going to try to contact a spirit — Walter is his name — who inhabits the theater,” Caserta says. “We’re going to try and talk to him.” Still, Caserta promises that nothing he does will be too intense for young audiences. “That’s very important to me,” he says. “My shows are family friendly. There is a lot of comedy in the show and nothing too scary for kids. Kids always love magic, but the show is also designed for couples and adults. I’m really trying to put on a night’s entertainment for all ages.” It’s not much of a stretch for Caserta, who himself traces his love of magic and illusion to when he was six years old. “I think I saw a magician at a birthday party and it just had an amazing affect on me,” he says. “From that day on every Christmas and birthday I’d ask for a magic kit. My parents would be like, ‘But is there anything else you want?’ But I just wanted the magic kit.” By 11, he was doing shows in front of audiences. By 20 he was cutting his magic teeth by touring amusement and theme parks around the country. Even while attending Allentown’s Muhlenberg College, Caserta was preparing for a career in theater arts, studying acting, production, lighting, sound design and even taking a few business classes to help him market and represent himself. In many ways, Caserta presents a true one-man operation, as he does his own sound and lighting work. “In one way by doing all my own sound and lighting and so on, I know that what I’m doing is really mine,” he says. “They’re my illusions. By the same token, I kind of wish I could take some of the pressure off myself by trusting some of this to someone else. But for now it’s all me.” And that magic touch finally gets to be seen in Atlantic City. “I’ve really come full circle,” Caserta says. n

For a ballet company, the obvious holiday production comes at Christmas when The Nutcracker is performed around the country. But what about a Halloween ballet? Check around, there aren’t any. Well, there is one. Phyllis Papa and her Atlantic City Ballet are in their third year of presenting the completely original ballet Dracula. The company put on a production of the show last weekend at the Stockton Performing Arts Center and this weekend performs at the Paul W. Schmidtchen Theater at Lower Cape May Regional High School. If you’re wondering how the world’s most famous vampire became a ballet, you can look to Papa. “I had read Bram Stoker’s Dracula and I just felt it would make a good dance,” she says. “It fit really well, but each year I’ve changed and added to it. I’m constantly changing the music and we’ve added four new dances this year.” For some, the most surprising thing may not be that Dracula can be a ballet, but that Atlantic City even has a ballet. “It’s been a challenge to get people out to our productions,” Papa says. “Many times the people who come out have never seen a ballet. And I think they’re shocked, in a good way, by what they see. This is the first year we’ve played Stockton and we had a packed house. I think we blew them away.” This year’s production features a company of 18 dancers and 10 apprentices with professional dancers from throughout Europe, the U.S. and Asia. So if you like your blood suckers light on their feet, Dracula should hit the right vein. Performances are scheduled for 7:30pm Friday and Saturday. Visit for information. — Mike Pritchard

Kenny Barron Where: Stockton College PAC When: Monday, Oct. 26, 7:30pm How Much: $25-$40

By Jeff Schwachter

A Jazz Original

Hailed as one of the top jazz pianists in the world, Kenny Barron brings trio to Stockton PAC Monday



O C T O B E R 2 2 , 2 0 0 9 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

ESPITE THE FACT THAT THE Los Angeles Times named him “one of the top jazz pianists in the world” and Jazz Weekly hailed him as “the most lyrical piano player of our time,” outside of mainly jazz-music circles, Kenny Barron is not a household name. He has, however, been nominated for a Grammy nine times, earned numerous reader’s choice and jazz writers’ awards and was inducted into the American Jazz Hall of Fame in 2005. Along with all of this, the Jazz Journalists Association has named him Best Pianist six times. He was born in Philadelphia. At the age of 18, in 1961, he joined jazz great Yusef Lateef’s band and then did a stint for nearly half a decade (1962-‘66) with famed trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie’s band, worked with Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, Joe Henderson and the list of fellow esteemed musicians goes on and on. Today, Kenny Barron is not only considered by many to be the finest pianist in jazz, the Brooklyn, N.Y., resident — he left Philly for New York when he was 19 — is, as Philadelphia musician and educator Daniel Peterson refers to him, a leader and not a follower. “In comparison to most of his contemporaries — Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea and Cecil Taylor — Barron has had a style that features elegance and an egoless professionalism, which has led to historic recordings and performances as a sideman, collaborator and leader,” says Peterson. “And he’s done so without adhering to popular styles of the time like many of his contemporaries did. This may be why he’s less popular.” Although his name may not be as well recognized as Jarrett’s or Corea’s, Barron’s entire adult life has been devoted to jazz.

The 66-year-old Barron tells Atlantic City Weekly he knew, even at 18, that he wanted to dedicate his life to music. “For me it was sort of a forgone conclusion,” he says. “I wasn’t going to do anything else.” Barron says he was immersed in classic jazz music while growing up in North Philadelphia and his older brother, the late tenor saxophonist Bill Barron, influenced his path as well. “[Music] was always around. [Bill] had a great record collection,” says Barron, “Old 78s of Bird and Diz, Fats Navarro and people like that. So, I got to hear the music a lot. And then Philly, at the time, had a really great jazz radio station and I listened to it faithfully every day.” Barron says it was big thrill as a young musician to be working with such tremendously talented artists as Gillespie, Dexter Gordon and Lateef when he was just a young player starting out. “That was a great school,” he says. Another influence was the late Oscar Peterson. In a few months (Dec. 3) Barron will be one of three pianists doing a solo set at Carnegie Hall in tribute to Peterson. The concert, according to Barron, is a “remembrance” of the jazz icon who passed away two Decembers ago. When it comes to thinking about which jazz icon left the biggest mark on him, Barron offers, “Certainly Dizzy and Yusef Lateef. Those are the two who I worked with when I was very young. James Moody was another one. “And even though I was a little bit older at the time, Stan Getz was one of those people who had a big influence on me.” Barron toured and recorded with the late tenor giant during the 1980s. “He was a very, very beautiful guy,” says Barron. While there are many recording dates

over the decades that stand out in Barron’s mind as being some of his favorites, if he had to pick one off the top of his head it would be one of his own. “One of the sessions that I had a lot of fun on was actually one of mine,” says Barron. “It was with [bassist] Charlie Haden and [drummer] Roy Haynes for a CD called Wanton Spirit. It was really a great experience and they actually made me play a different way just by their presence.” Barron recalls fondly some unforgettable gigs in A.C. “I worked there with Dizzy at a place called the Wonder Garden during the early ’60s,” recalls Barron. “And I remember we started playing at midnight and played till about four. I think we did maybe two or three sets.” After the show, Barron says, the band headed over to the Club Harlem to check out the revue show there. “There was a lot of music going on in Atlantic City [at that time],” says Barron. Throughout Barron’s career, critics and listeners have noted the haunting and “sensitive” elements in Barron’s work. It’s almost as if, with every note, Barron strives to present the passionate, blue, sad, sincere and beautiful aspects of life. Barron acknowledges there is a certain melancholic quality to his playing. “It’s just something I’m attracted to,” says Barron. “I mean, I like pretty stuff. I’m just drawn to that; who knows why. It always has been that way.”

group to feature Monk’s music.” One of the greatest motion-picture scores of the last 50 years, for Spike Lee’s 1988 Do The Right Thing, features Barron on a few tracks. “That was Spike Lee’s father [Bill Lee] who did the soundtrack and I knew him for years,” says Barron. “He’s a bassist. He used to work with a lot of folksingers during the 1960s. That’s when we met. Just from knowing me, he decided to call me.” That the scenes in the film fit so magically with the score may be attributed to the fact that director Spike Lee was even involved in the music process of Do The Right Thing. “Oh yeah, he was there for the sessions,” remembers Barron. “He was very much a hands-on kind of guy. He was very serious and he knew what he wanted.” For Monday evening’s concert at Stockton, Barron will present his trio (featuring bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and Philly drummer Jonathan Blake) playing a combination of originals and standards. Following his local appearance, Barron heads to Spain for some shows. Over the past decade, most of Barron’s performances have been overseas. “I only work in New York maybe two weeks out of the year,” he says. “It’s very difficult to tour in the United States now. “I don’t know why,” Barron says laughing. “Well, number one, back when I was with Diz we used to tour a lot, but there were also a lot of clubs. And we’d stay there for two or three weeks in each club. That sort of thing doesn’t happen anymore.” “In jazz, business choices and artistic Sphere and Beyond In the 1980s Barron co-founded the choices rarely meet,” says Daniel Peterson. Thelonius Monk-minded band Sphere, “Barron hasn’t attached himself to passing fads or been outspoken about his own hiswhich reassembled in the 1990s. “Sphere is Monk’s middle name,” says toric relevance. Instead, he allows his music Daniel Peterson. “It was the first repertory to speak for itself.” n see more online @

Right now, there are thousands of New Jersey children who need the warmth and guidance of a family. Many parents are welcoming these children into their homes to provide safety, stability and love. These wonderful people are New Jersey’s foster and adoptive families.

Foster Care

Foster families provide a home for children who have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. These children are in need of nurturing families who will help them heal and grow.



O C T O B E R 2 2 , 2 0 0 9 / A C W ee k l y . C O M

Many children long for a forever family because they are not able to be reunited with their birth parents. Being an adobptive parent can change a child’s live forever, as well as bring new joy and fulfillment to your family.

To become a foster or adoptive parent:

• You must be at least 18 years old. • You can be single, married, in a domestic partnership or civil union • You can live in either a house or an apartment • You can have your own children or be parenting for the first time

We will help you through the process of becoming a licensed foster/adoptive parent. This involves: • Personal employment school and child care references • Criminal background and child abuse history checks • Pre-service training • Interviews and assessments of all household members • Home inspection

Support services are available for children in your care: • Monthly board stipend • Health insurance • Child care services for employed parents
