•are you going to do “the trip to Bountiful” when it opens in los angeles?

I start rehearsals in August, and it opens in midSeptember and runs through the second week of November. It was one of those things as soon as I heard that Cicely (Tyson) had agreed to do it in L.A., I was definitely there for her. Not only that, I did not want to give up my role, but I loved it so much. It was one of those magical combos, and I hope they can get as many of our original Broadway cast.

Zahn

In ABC’s new “Mind Games,” airing Tuesdays, Steve Zahn plays Clark Edwards, whose bipolar disorder – and his affair with an undergraduate – upended his career as a university professor teaching about human behavior and psychology. Clark’s brother is brilliant schemer Ross (Christian Slater), and together they’ve founded Edwards and Associates, a business that specializes in using science, con artistry and mental manipulation to make clients’ dreams come true. But when he’s not filming in Chicago, Zahn drives home to his wife and two children on a farm outside Lexington, Ky. “It’s weird,” he says, striding through a field on the way to his truck. “You go out, get in the truck and go home, and I become a bus driver and short-order cook and start picking up horse s... .

•Are you having fun on “About a Boy”?

It’s so fun. I had done a bunch of TV shows, and I really think the key is having fun, a little twinkle. All that magic comes through. •Your character is somewhat of a Peter Pan figure; does he see the need to grow up?

All of his friends are married with kids, and there is no one anymore except this weird 11-year-old boy. As the series unfolds, the path to hell is paved with good intentions – the single mom trying to raise this evolved kid with hippie love. •What are you bringing of your experiences as a father to this role?

Having kids makes it so much more meaningful. They try to commit suicide every day. It’s amazing the house doesn’t burst into flames. I have a 2-month-old and a 1 1/2-year-old. Teasing was big in my family, and there is a wonderful way to tease and make people feel more loved.

FOUR GREAT JAZZ EVENTS COMING FROM UAPRESENTS On March 1st at 8pm, UApresents celebrates the jazz vocalist dubbed the “First Lady of Song” with a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald at downtown’s Tucson Fox Theatre.

Fitzgerald was the most popular female singer in the U.S. for more than half a century. She won 13 Grammy Awards and sold over 40 million albums. Her voice was wide-ranging, accurate and ageless. She could sing sultry ballads and sweet jazz, and imitate every instrument in the orchestra. She worked with all the jazz greats, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman. Some might say all the jazz greats had the pleasure of working with Ella. She performed at top venues around the world and packed them to the hilt. Her audiences were as diverse as her vocal range. They were rich and poor, made up of all races, all religions and all nationalities. In fact, many of them had just one binding factor in common - they all loved her.

February 26th, 2014 - March 4th, 2014

The concert will feature many of her original big band arrangements, not heard in over 40 years. The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, with a mission of perpetuating the legacy of jazz, is in residence at the National Museum of American History. Also featured will be vocalist, founding member of the Grammy Award-winning group New York Voices, Kim Nazarian, paying tribute to Ella with her elegant style and vocal expertise. Strike up the band! On March 9, multiplatinum-selling, two-time Emmy and five-time Grammy-nominated pianist and vocalist Michael Feinstein is returning to Centennial Hall! One of the premier interpreters of American standards, Feinstein was Ira Gershwin’s assistant for six years, earning him access to numerous unpublished Gershwin songs. Performing with a big and, the evening will celebrate the

music and legacy of George and Ira Gershwin. On April 6, jazz pianist, singer, and songwriter Diana Krall makes her debut UApresents performance at UA Centennial Hall. With an instantly identifiable voice and broad appeal, Krall has sold more than 15 million albums and is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of Billboard’s jazz albums chart. Her high musical standards and audience appeal continue to win fans worldwide. Krall’s newest recording, Glad Rag Doll, features jazz classics from the 1920’s and 1930’s inspired by her father’s collection of 78-rpm records. Downbeat calls the album “an inspired, gritty burst of new creativity.” Entertainment Weekly sums it up as “enthralling” and Associated Press says, “It rocks. It swings. It shuffles. It’s sexy, sly, intimate and exhilarating.”

AZWeeklyMagazine.com

On April 11, Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli return to Tucson, this time together at Fox Tucson Theatre with “Straighten Up and Fly Right: The Nat King Cole Tribute. As a singer, Cole was “the best friend a song ever had,” but his later recordings reveal piano technique, vocal phrasings and on-themark orchestrations that are indebted to his early root in jazz. Lewis and Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of ‘50’s vocal pop, whose work has influenced their own careers. Pizzarelli, a favorite at the Fox last season, has been called “hip with a wink” by Town & Country and “madly creative” by the Los Angeles Times. Lewis is legendary. “It’s a high honor when someone says so,” he says, “but I don’t see myself that way. What keeps me enthusiastic and energizes me, is the realization that the more I learn, the more I find there is to know.”

“People come to Geronimo Plaza and discover Main Gate is a great place in a lively atmosphere,” said Jane McCollum, Main Gate Square general manager.

Friday Night Live Line-up April 4 UA Studio Jazz Ensemble The UA Studio Jazz Ensemble (aka Jazz A) was founded by Tom Ervin in 1972, and Jeff Haskell began conducting the ensemble regularly in 1977. The players’ names read like a “who’s who” as well as the list of soloists who have starred with the band over the years. In the 1980’s, the band was hired to tour with Dizzy Gillespie, exposing to the students the great teaching expertise Gillespie had at his command. Most recently, they undertook a groundbreaking, two-week performance tour throughout China - the only American jazz ensemble, professional or student, to play the Chinese large Poly Theaters. April 18 Crystal Stark, jazz vocals Crystal Rose Stark is an award-winning pop/R&B singer who brings a positive influence to today’s music scene. Based on her church-singing roots, she knew that she wanted to pursue a full-time career in music.   She made it to the top 44 contestants in American Idol out of the100,000 that tried out across the country. She sang back-up on tour with American Idol runner-up Katharine Mcphee on shows such as Jay Leno, Regis & Kelly and The Today Show.

Snowbowl - Flagstaff, AZ

I am going to deviate from my usual desert excursions to bring in some winter sport adventure, before the record breaking temperatures get any higher here in the old west. It has been unusually hot in Arizona, but it is not too late to get your winter gear and head up Flagstaff for some last-minute winter fun. Snowboarding and skiing are great ways to get exercise outside, and both winter sports are challenging in their own ways (and to different muscles). When arriving on the Humphreys it is evident that we have had a drought this year if you have been up here in the recent winters, however, once you hit the slopes you would never even know it. Their snow machines are working overtime and keeping the well-­manicured slopes up and running for all of us thrill seekers, with a base of about 33 inches of snow right now. We went up for two days and it was warm sunshine and cool, fresh mountain air the entire time. I

saw many birds, squirrels, chip monks, and deer. Eight hours of snowboarding or skiing is anything but easy, and it’s fun for the whole family or a group of friends. Arizona Snowbowl offers a lot of cool packages and rates so just check them out online at https:// www.arizonasnowbowl.com, and the season is not over yet! In March there will be an awesome Micro Brew Festival, check their website for updates.

COLUMNISTS

SOUNDBITE SPOTLIGHT

STAN ROBINSON

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

Director Haney Abu-Assad (‘Omar’) By Stan Robinson from real life so I decided to do something from my own experience.

Stan Robinson’s reviews reflect the insights of an insider. With more than 22 years of experience in media production, Stan uses his behind-the-scenes expertise to survey a film’s technical attributes and considers the challenges that had to be overcome in order to cinematically present a story. E-mail him at Movies@StanRobinson.org.

“I came up with the story because partly, I was once in a paranoia position where I thought that there was a spy in my group, or a traitor, which is a disturbing feeling to start to suspect everyone around you. Also a friend of mine was accused of something and there was newspaper coverage, and it had a very dramatic ending. All this together became the basics for the story of Omar in just one night. I wrote for hours, and I think that it was the urgency of panic that I needed to make a movie that can be both personal and dramatic.

In ‘Omar’, a young Palestinian freedom fighter agrees to work as an informant after he’s tricked into an admission of guilt by association in the wake of an Israeli soldier’s killing. Subtitled (NR - 96 minutes)

“Omar” is a love story set in occupied Palestine, it’s about love, friendship, and it’s like a Shakespearean story where the same reasons that one falls in love are the same reasons you destroy your love. Even though it takes place in Palestine, it has a very universal theme that hopefully that even when the conflict will end,

the movie will stay alive because its bigger than the conflict, it’s through young people who are caught up in circumstances that they put themselves in situations where they have to make a choice between their desire, and their duty!” – Haney AbuAssad

Still haven’t seen that movie that your friends have been talking about? Film Columnist Randy Montgomery recaps what you may have missed in 140 characters or less.

‘Gloria’ ~ Character driven, slow-moving drama from Chile. Paulina García’s performance is natural and award-worthy. A must-see for that alone. Grade: A

‘Like Father, Like Son’ ~ A heartfelt Japanese import that quietly wins you over. A small film with a big heart that is worth seeking out. Grade: A

‘The Monuments Men’ ~ There are hits, then there are misses. Clooney and crew missed with this one big time on all levels. Chalk this one up at history. Grade: C-

‘The Past’ ~ A drama w/ enough twists to keep you engaged. The French setting for an Iranian film is even more intriguing. A must see. Grade: A

‘The Lego Movie’ ~ Creative, ingenious and managed to capture the heart and spirit of the toy. Funny and heartfelt and the title song is unforgettable. Grade: A+

‘RoboCop’ ~ There have been too many remakes of 80’s films to mention. The original was somewhat of a classic in its own right, this is not. Grade: C-

SPECIAL FEATURE The History of Oscar By Stan Robinson The Oscar® statue is movie’s greatest prize, as the motion picture industry prepares for its biggest awards presentation: Annual Academy Awards®, commonly known as the Oscars®. This year, on Sunday 2 March 2014 on ABC-TV, the 86th Annual Academy Awards® will be presented, with Ellen DeGeneres returning as host. The viewership for the broadcast is expected to surpass the 40 million viewers of last year’s telecast. Because of the wide range of films, both big and small, and the slate of 10 best picture nominees (up from five nominees since 2010), anticipation is high as speculation and predictions abound. The American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, formed in 1927, is a professional honorary organization of motion picture artists and craftsmen, with the primary goal to advance the arts and science of motion pictures. The gold statue depicts a knight holding a crusader’s sword, standing on a reel of film with five spokes, signifying the original branches of the Academy: Actors, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Technicians. The award is 8.5 pounds in weight, 13.5 inches tall, and cast in Britannia metal and plated in 24-karat gold, with a round, black marble base.

When the statue was created in 1928, it was referred to as the Academy Award of Merit. Several stories lay claim to naming the statue Oscar. The one that the Academy supports is then Academy librarian Margaret Herrick remarked that the statue looked a lot like her Uncle Oscar(Pierce). The name stuck, and the Academy staff began referring to the statue as ‘Oscar’. Writing about Katherine Hepburn’s Best Actress win in 1934, Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky used the name ‘Oscar’ in his column, and it seemed to stick after that, although the Academy didn’t recognize the name

‘Oscar’ officially until 1939. Early on award winners were announced before the ceremony allowing newspapers to have the winners listed in late-night editions. However, newspapers began printing the Oscar edition earlier in the evening, and by 1940, ceremony attendees could pick up a paper and find out who won while on their way to the ceremony. Perhaps sensing that this early notification would bring an end to people actually attending, and to add the suspense that we now associate with the ceremony, the Academy began keeping results in the sealed envelopes that we know today. Now, when the Oscar presenter says, “and the Oscar goes to…” we’re all finding out the winners at the same time.

220 E. Broadway Blvd • Tucson, AZ 85701 • 520.396.3480 January 16th, 1919 was the beginning of a dark period in American history that started with the ratification of the 18th Amendment and didn’t end for thirteen years with the ratification of the 21st Amendment on December 5th, 1933. This era became known as Prohibition and saw the outlawing of all alcoholic beverages in the United States. Since we just celebrated what has become known as Repeal Day, let’s examine that time a little more closely.

completely disposed of all the favorite arguments of the Prohibitionists. None of the great boons and usufructs that were to follow the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment has come to pass. There is not less drunkenness in the Republic, but more. There is not less crime, but more. There is not less insanity, but more. The cost of government is not smaller, but vastly greater. Respect for law has not increased, but diminished.

The 18th Amendment is the only Constitutional Amendment to ever be repealed and it signified the end of what was called The Noble Experiment by supporters of Prohibition. In reality it was harmful to the country and served to provide numerous opportunities for organized crime to gain footholds as well as creating a general unhappiness with the Federal Government. The proponents of prohibition had believed that banning alcoholic beverages would reduce or even eliminate many social problems, particularly drunkenness, crime, mental illness, and poverty. In 1925, journalist H.L. Mencken believed the opposite to be true:

And while Prohibition may not have been responsible for The Great Depression, it certainly played its part in making the Depression worse. Between costs of enforcement and lost tax revenue it is estimated that Prohibition cost the country around a billion dollars during the period from the late 1920’s until Repeal. Money that could have helped drastically with needed services during that time. The entire thirteen years of Prohibition cost the United States about $11,000,000,000 dollars in lost tax revenue and another $400,000,000 in enforcement costs.

Five years of Prohibition have had, at least, this one benign effect: they have

Prohibition brought us many terms used today. For instance,the term speakeasy is said to come from bartenders telling patrons to “speak easy” when ordering so as not to be overheard some 30 years before prohibition. While the speakeasy was often funded by organized crime and could be very elaborate and upscale, the “blind pig” was a dive for the less desirable drinker. It should be noted that one of Russian River Brewing’s flagship brands is Blind Pig IPA. The term “The Real McCoy” also came out of this era. It’s attributed to Captain William S. McCoy who facilitated most of the rum running via ships during prohibition and would never water down his imports, making his the “real” thing. When it became evident that Prohibition had failed, as many movements that ignore the will of the people do, a politician named Franklin D. Roosevelt ran for president on a platform that included the repeal of the 18th Amendment. Soon-to-be President Roosevelt also had a plan to get us out of The Depression and was easily elected. His “New Deal” became a major turning point for the United States. On December 5th, 1933 the 21st Amendment was accepted by the state of Utah, a state not normally thought of as being particularly supportive of alcohol, and with that vote the required

incredible growth of organized crime. Serving as retail distribution channels and, in many cases production as well, cities were almost taken over by organized crime groups. But it was not all the mob’s doing, most of the production and trafficking was still done by ordinary citizens looking to make money and provide a service for their fellow Americans. Much of it was also done by Canadian interests. Production of spirits, wine and beer was still legal in Canada and a quick bootlegging run across the border could net these companies a nice profit.

75% of states required for ratification was reached and the Amendment became law. However prior to that the Cullen-Harrison act was signed into law by President Roosevelt. This act allowed for production and sale of beer of no more than 3.2% alcohol by weight (4.0% if using the more common alcohol by volume measurement) and beer returned to the country in April of 1933. Interesting fact... The first legal bottle of beer produced by Washington’s Abner Drury Brewery was delivered to President Roosevelt at the White House shortly after midnight on April 14, 1933 and stored in the President’s pantry because he was still asleep. Here are some other interesting facts about Prohibition and its repeal. ©2013 Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Chippewa Falls, WI * Beer Dewar’s Scotch - the first legal whisky to arrive in the U.S. - hit New York’s South Street Seaport docks the moment the law was put into action.

Now, a lot of people have suggested that Joseph Kennedy was a bootlegger, which he may or may not have been. But what he really was, was the owner of a company named Somerset Importers. Somerset owned the exclusive rights to import Dewar’s Scotch and Gordon’s Gin, and right before Repeal, Somerset stocked up.
