Nick@ Night By Nick Connell UNFORGETTABLE the Nat King Cole Story at Mesa Arts Center. The Lonn Entertainment group unveiled their touching and revealing production of UNFORGETTABLE, The Nat King Cole Story at the Mesa Arts Center this week. This show is a top shelf production starring the unforgettable Monroe Kent III as Nat King Cole. You’ll know the music from so many great songs, but this is a chance to meet and understand the genius and style of Mr. Cole. Monroe is a dead wringer for Nat, his delivery and interpretation of the Cole repertoire is exceptional. With a voice made to dance with the melodies of Nat, he seduced his audience with sweet renditions of ‘Route 66’; ‘Yes Sir That’s my Baby’, ‘Stardust’, ‘Smile’, ‘Mona Lisa’, ‘Let There Be Love’ and the signature song ‘Unforgettable’. Although the music is the story in this one man show, Larry Reed on piano, Edison Herbert on guitar and Juni Booth on bass make this show a winner. Don’t wait to long to catch the story of Nat King Cole-it closes January 31st. Tickets at 480-644-6500 or online at MesaArtsCenter.com. SHIPWRECKED Actors Theatre at Herberger Theater Center-Stage West. Matt Weiner and Actors Theatre have come up with an entertainment melodrama good time in SHIPWRECKED, The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont(as Told by Himself), written by the talented story teller Donald Margulies. This is a story of truth or consequences, where our hero Louis, entertains and creates a fantastic adventure of his so called journey to the land down under for thirty years. But who cares about truth, what we have here is pure escapism to the Land of Oz, or can you say ‘Yumba’ and the Aborigines. Taking us on a fantastic journey full of unforeseen events, point’s unknown and pure laughter is Kirk Jackson, as Louis. Kirk is full of the wise saws and black pearls to keep the clouds away from any shipwrecked mate. Even his trusty dog Bruno, played by the scene stealer Oliver Wadsworth, is in for a few crusty kisses. Throw in Yumba the aborigine, played with pure enthusiasm by Yetide Badaki, and you have a hit comedy worth a sailor’s ransom! Through Feb.7th Tickets 602-252-8497 or ActorsTheatrePhx.org STYX at Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino in Chandler. Rock legends STYX blew the socks off the Phoenix faithful at the Ovations Live! Showroom inside Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino last Thursday. This is one exquisite place to see a rock show, or any show for that matter. The sound was clear and dynamic leaving fans with a legendary performance from rock’s superstar melody makers. KUDOS to Arizona Broadway Theatre for bringing Eric Preminger to town for a one-night documentary presentation on the life of his mother, GYSY LEE ROSE. What a class act with a classy story that was a joy to experience! Gone to soon Gypsy… And to Scottsdale Center for the Arts for bringing the fantastic MOMIX dance company to Arizona. This was a feast of color and motion that was stunning! Scottsdale audiences will be talking about this show for a long time… BREAK A LEG!

Bovell. Written by Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyen. Warner Bros. Pictures release. Rated R for strong bloody violence and language. Runtime: 117 minutes. (195 words; artwork in Edge of Darkness folder)

“When in Rome”, the pursuit of the ‘Fountain of Love’

is tomorrow, in your homeland venue (chuckle)! Greg: A bit, a bit, but it’s an exciting nervousness!

“The Boys Are Back”, producer Greg Brenman’s moving film on fatherhood! Interview by Stan Robinson “The Boys Are Back” is available on DVD, and had its London première on January 22, 2010. The movie stars Clive Owen, who made my list of “Best Actors in Leading Roles” for 2009 for his performance as Joe Warr in “The Boys Are Back”. Incidentally, Clive Owen was my first choice to take over the role of James Bond when it became available and ultimately went to Daniel Craig. Most see the screen credit ‘Producer’ for movies and TV shows. Its that all encompassing position with a film project that is the solidifying guiding force, that is absolutely necessary, to bring a movie to fruition. It starts with the printed word (script) and continues all the way to the final presentation on the big screen! In telephone a conversation with Greg Brenman in London the day before the première, we talked about the long journey of bringing the powerful story of a father and sport writer who becomes a single parent of two boys, after the death of his wife. Stan: Nervous, the London première

Stan: I bet! As producer, I know it was a long journey to bring “The Boys Are Back” to the screen… Greg: Indeed, it took seven years… Stan: (cutting in) seven years? Greg: It all started when Simon Carr who wrote his memoirs and whose life its based, came to our company for advice, he said ‘there’s interest in my book’ for a movie. After meetings and several drafts for the search was on for the cast! Be sure to visit www.ScreenScene. org for more as we talk about casting, shooting logistics’ in Australia, coordinating crew and actors’ schedules, and more of the finer aspects of the role of the producer with Greg Brenman!

thriller, he’s homicide detective Thomas Craven, who has spent years working the streets of Boston. Things change for him when his daughter is killed near the door of his home. As he starts to investigate, he realizes her death is only one piece of a larger, intricate puzzle filled with a corporate cover-up and government collusion. As he digs deeper into her death and the conspiracy, a mysterious agent with the assignment of ‘tidying up’ any loose ends, presents a ‘no win’ scenario for detective Thomas Craven… There’s more at www. ScreenScene.org Starring Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston, Bojana Novakovic, and Shawn Roberts.

In the romantic comedy, Beth (Kristen Bell) is a young, ambitious, successful New York real estate agent. She’s not as successful in her love life. In desperation, she decides on a whirlwind trip to Rome, the city of love. During the usual tours, she learns of the mythical ‘fountain of love’. Overwhelmed by her desire for true love, and in a moment of the ultimate potential of fulfillment of her dreams, impulsively ‘misappropriates’ some of the coins and finds herself being aggressively pursued around Rome by a milieu’ of suitors!

BEER! SECTION

BEER! Beer styles are an interesting topic. What makes some styles more popular than others is not strictly about taste, but also about exposure. For years, Americans had very few beer style choices beyond the pilsners or pale lagers brewed by the large domestic companies. Consequently, the pilsner flavor became recognizable to many while other styles, especially ales, were rejected as not tasting like real beer. Finally, two breweries with Boston roots created ales that many people enjoyed and the popularity of top fermenting beers grew. Slowly, other styles hit that right place at the right time and grew in popularity. People were starting to drink Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters and a couple of other styles. New Belgium introduced Fat Tire in 1991 and the Amber category quickly flourished. While other breweries had popular amber beers, both ales and lagers (and the style is very loosely defined), there was no question that New Belgium had catapulted itself in to the big leagues. Until recently, India Pale Ales, or IPAs have been popular in limited markets, and usually only with those who describe themselves as beer geeks. Well, thanks to New Belgium (again), it appears as if IPAs are about to become as much a household name as ambers. On February 1st, New Belgium will introduce its Ranger IPA and the beer business will change yet again.

IPAs are one of those beers that have an interesting, almost mythical history. Commonly thought to have been created after finding that traditional Pale Ales would not survive the trip from England to India when the English were running the show in India, that story is not entirely accurate. In fact, many styles could and did survive the trip. However, a gentleman named George Hodgson developed a beer he called, October Beer. The East India traders quickly discovered that this slightly stronger and better hopped beer, which was designed to be cellared for up to two years, actually benefited from the trip to India. Soon, they were selling and drinking a great deal of this October beer, and commissioning other brewers to produce the style. Somewhere along the line it became known as an India Pale Ale. For years the IPA was kept traditional, just a little more alcohol and a little more hops than the typical English Pale Ale. In the early 1980s during the startup of American Craft Brewing, brewers found interesting variations on this style and another revolution was on. The American IPA soon grew in popularity and overtook

Ranger IPA from New Belgium is poised to make this style an everyday beer. It is not as aggressive as some of the West Coast IPA’s but still has a nice blend of hops that provide both aroma and flavor to make sure you know what you are drinking. Lest anyone think that the IPA is new to Arizona, it is not. We have many fine examples of the style already sold here. From the well-balanced Big Sky IPA, Bell’s Two Hearted and Lost Coast Indica IPA to the more West Coast oriented Port Wipeout or Alesmith IPA, there are plenty available. We have single hop varieties such as Ballast Point Big Eye, and others the offer a veritable hodgepodge of hops, including SKA Modus Hoperandi, Flying Dog Snake Dog, Avery IPA, Great Divide Titan and Lucky U from Breckenridge.

The current proliferation of IPAs in the market has also shown an increase in accounts selling this product. Long reserved for the beer bars that offered everything, like Papago Brewing, Yardhouse and Delux, IPAs are being embraced by more of the mainstream bars and restaurants. The consumer can now find these beers at locations throughout the Valley. Places like The Compound Grill, Gallagher’s, Barney’s Boathouse, Postino, Hazelwood’s, RTO Sullivan’s, and Buffalo Wings and Rings are just a few of the diverse bars and restaurants that are offering this style of beer.

is scheduled for February 1st. However, there will be a few sneak preview parties on January 28th. Papago Brewing (Scottsdale and McDowell), Taste of Tops (411 E. University, Tempe), The Compound Grill (Scottsdale and Mayo Bouleveard), Boulders on Broadway (530 East Broadway, Tempe), Moto (16th Street and Glendale, Phoenix) and Risky Business (Tucson) will all be offering a preliminary look at this exciting new beer. Check with the individual locations, but there will be a grand toast welcoming the Ranger to Arizona at 6:30. Make sure you are at any of these locations for that moment as it is always a good time. Is it fair to say that this style may be the next big thing? Absolutely! It is already one of the fastest growing styles in the craft beer world, and a mainstay on shelves and tap handles of all types. There are more and more brands entering the marketplace, and when a brewery the size of New Belgium decides to roll out a style, you know it’s going to be big. The craft beer community typically subscribes to the theory that a rising tide floats all boats. New Belgium is bringing a big tide, and the rest of the IPA boats should be floating much higher this time next year.

SPEED, PRECISION AND POWER SET TO COLLIDE Anderson “Spider” Silva vs. Vitor “Phenom” Belfort at UFC 112 Pay heed. The Champ is here.

“He’s back training all the time. He’s doing really well. Just rehabbing the elbow and trying to get the full range of motion and everything, but he’s feeling well enough to train, and his training’s been going really well.” The elbow injury that Silva has endured is more than just a recent problem. According to his manager, Silva has been dealing with the pain in his elbow for some time, and it was just to the point where surgery was the only answer. “The elbow has been bothering him for a long time and that’s part of the reason that we just had to go ahead and do it because it wasn’t getting any better, and the longer that those fragments stayed there, it was other potential damage that those fragments were creating,” said Soares. Now that the champion is healed, it’s on to the business of fighting Vitor Belfort. His fellow Brazilian returned to the UFC last year and knocked out former

Anderson Silva, arguably the top poundfor-pound fighter in the world, is healthy after having successful elbow surgery. He’ll be the first to tell you he’s primed and ready for an April showdown against his Brazilian counterpart, the speedy, heavy-hitting Vitor “Phenom” Belfort at UFC 112.

middleweight champion Rich Franklin in a 195-pound catchweight bout to earn the shot at Silva’s title, but Soares says he still believes Belfort should have had to do a little bit more. “I think Vitor’s a very exciting fighter. He’s a very dangerous fighter. I think this is a fight that the world will definitely want to see. I still don’t believe Vitor deserves a title shot yet at 185 pounds. That’s how I felt, that’s how I feel about it, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t believe it’s going to be a great fight,” he commented. Silva and Belfort will headline UFC 112 along with the lightweight title fight pitting champion B.J. Penn against top contender Frankie Edgar.

LIVE! SECTION LITA FORD – WICKED WONDERLAND (JLRG) Dear Lita, Just received a copy of your new CD ‘Wicked Wonderland’ and I wanted to offer my two cents. Take it for what it’s worth. I’m rather confused as to your musical path as of late. If you’re being true to yourself, that’s cool I guess. So after a 15 year absence from the music scene, one would hope this is your true vision and not you being in�luenced by other people’s vision of what you should be. With your husband Jim Gillette’s vocals all over the record and a barrage of industrial in�luenced 90’s era metal, I can’t help but wonder if you have radio reception since residing in the Caribbean . I’m just

not hearing any SONGS here. I am hearing Jim’s high-pitched vocals more frequently than any guest vocalist on any album ever. I’m also hearing something that sounds more like a confusing, non-cohesive effort. One might think you were a musical duo now a’la Simon & Garfunkel yet the album is credited to you. Heavy industrial noises that may have been hip 15 years ago and nothing resembling your past don’t help the fact that there are no songs on this album. I’m sure you put your best foot forward, but your fans were probably expecting something resembling what they loved from you. This record sounds like you were asked to contribute occasional vocals on someone else’s album. Sorry, I’m just don’t get it. Perhaps this is your “Elder” or “Shadowlife” (KISS and Dokken’s miserable musical failures). If so, learn and grow from it. When you are ready to do a real Lita Ford album, please let us know. – Stephen Wilkinson Rockzone Records, 2155 E.
