Happy Summer!

As a kid I always looked forward to those last days of the school year and the final bell that signaled summer had arrived. Then, it was off for weeks of play with neighborhood friends, days spent at camp and fun visits with relatives. Please take a moment to enjoy this issue of PaperCity, which features fun reads about favorite summer memories and great ways to cool off when temperatures soar into the triple digits. We also invite you to dust off your childhood memories with a Park Cities trivia test—in honor of Highland Park’s centennial celebration. Just like the timeless tale of Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys, we hope your summer is filled with excitement and adventure—which can start with a visit to DTC’s musical Fly. It’s a new twist on the classic tale of Peter Pan, debuting at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre on July 2nd. It’s sure to start a conversation about what it means to “grow up.” On a personal note, this summer our family will be heading to our home in Maine, where we’ll put the finishing touches on a cottage we’ve been building—just in time for my daughter Avery’s wedding. Whether you travel near or far, I hope you have a memorable summer.

Good Ol’ I

t’s no secret that summers in Texas are hot. But somehow, despite the heat, summers here are some of the most memorable.

School is out, and work has slowed down. Aspiring entrepreneurs park their lemonade stands at prime intersections and compete with other stands a few blocks down. Neighbors hold summer shindigs with ice-cold drinks in their backyards, and kids frolic through sprinklers to cool down. Fireflies light up the Park Cities just after the gorgeous Texas sunset fades.

Texas Summers

To kick off this season, here are several Dallas folks’ favorite summer memories, from Fourth of July fireworks to family vacations to picking up kids at camp. One of my own favorite memories is climbing onto the soda fountain seats at the Highland Park Pharmacy to order a grilled cheese sandwich with pickles and a root beer float. I was told recently that parents have only 975 Saturdays total with their children and only 18 summers at home. Make ’em count and cherish them well! by Avery Briggs

1. An Unexpected Guest

“Late one summer, Ben and I had four tickets to the first football game of the season. We gave our two spare tickets to a friend who was bringing a guest, and we headed out to the game. When our friend arrived, Ben stepped aside to let him and his guest sit down. I looked up, and who was joining us? John Wayne.” – Rosemary Briggs, Preston Hollow

2. An Escape from the Heat!

“One of our family’s favorite summer memories is heading to the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado. At the camp there are no TVs in the cabins, spotty cell phone coverage (even today) and nature’s beauty all around. The result: lots of great conversation, time to read and sheer relaxation. An added bonus is that your oldest T-shirt and a pair of jeans can be worn anywhere!” – Jill McClung, University Park

3. Summer Camp!

“A large part of our summers revolved around camp for many years. We gathered all the essentials needed for a month of fun, packed up the boys’ trunks and sent them off early in the morning at NorthPark. But the best part of all was picking them up at the end and the seven-hour car ride home. It was such a treat to hear story after story of their adventures and the many new friends they had made. It provided great memories year after year that I will always treasure.” – Carrie Jane Pogoloff, Highland Park

4. Fireworks in Dallas

“My favorite summer memory is, hands down, the Fourth of July in Dallas. My grandfather lives across the street from the Dallas Country Club, so our tradition is to watch the fireworks from his lawn with our friends. We bring a couple of picnic blankets and speakers for music, and everyone waits for the fireworks. There’s almost nothing better.” – Justin Cox, University Park

3. 4.

5. Texas Ranches

“My favorite summer memory is going out to the ranch in East Texas with all of our close friends and family. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors and get some sunshine with great company.” – Molly Cox, University Park

6. A Trip to the Beach “I grew up going to Sea Island, Georgia, and my children did as well. We spent our days on the beach building sand castles, taking long walks and participating in kids’ camp. At night we had to ‘dress’ for dinner and we were taught good Southern manners. We didn’t always want to wait for everyone to finish eating before we were able to run off to bingo – and cute Southern boys – but we did. Sea Island is fancy now, but life on the island is still slow and relaxing – and the boys still have great Southern manners.” – Julie Macatee, University Park

5.

7. Takin’ a Dip “Years ago my son, Andrew, and I were fishing in Turtle Creek – and he fell in. If you ask him today, he will tell you he jumped in. Regardless, we still laugh about it.” – Henry Morgan, University Park

8. Quality Family Time, Right at Home

“This is not yet a memory, but this coming summer, our children and grandchildren are all coming to Dallas for a staycation. We plan to do some of our favorite activities: feed the ducks at Curtis Park, swim at the UP pool and check out the fire trucks at the UP Fire Station. Snider Plaza is also a favorite with lunch at Short Stop, a fun toy store and yummy frozen yogurt – all in one place, and all done before naptime!” – Mary Flo Ridley, University Park

A Wendy We Can Relate To

F

ly, the new musical adaption of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, begins and ends in Wendy’s bedroom – just like the classic.

But the Wendy we see is very little like the original. Manners don’t matter so much to the Wendy of Fly. She talks back. Instead of a very proper, flowing nightgown, she wears an oversized rugby shirt to bed. This, says Isabela Moner, the 11-year-old actress who plays the role, is portraying Wendy as a real-life kid who’s afraid of growing up. “Little kids at that age don’t act proper. They talk back,” Isabela says. “She’s very fiery. … She’s very tough. She’s willing to stand up to Peter – and Hook, too. She’s very independent.” That toughness and independence transform Wendy from a sweet and beloved, but dated, character into a more modern, independent, personification. “I think girls and women today are going to identify with this new interpretation of Wendy,” says Dallas Theater Center Board Chairman Rebecca Fletcher. “She has a lot in common with girls today who are setting goals and taking on all kinds of challenges.” When Wendy visits Neverland in Fly, which debuts at Dallas Theater Center on July 2, she (clad in her rugby shirt, of course) finds a wild, jungle landscape. The music is tribal and percussion-driven. The Lost Boys play instruments from nature – banging on trees, splashing up water. Isabela calls it Peter Pan with a rock-pop twist, and says her friends are so excited to see it. This 11-year-

old lives in Cleveland, Ohio, but spends a lot of time in New York City. She says she is elated to have won the role of Wendy – and a little bit surprised. She thought she was a bit small for the role, and didn’t expect a callback. Reading the script, she fell in love with Wendy. She first was struck by how much the character had changed from previous productions. And then she was excited to see that Wendy reacted the same as she might have in similar situations. “I think I can relate to the character a lot,” she says. “I myself don’t want to grow up.” Does it make her nervous, to present such a wellknown character in a very different light? “I feel like she’s just so different,” Isabela says. “I just want to surprise the audience with another Wendy.”

Fly director Jeffrey Seller says this Wendy is very similar in strength and purpose to the girl J.M. Barrie created in the 1911 novel Peter Pan. But her experience in Fly is, perhaps, a little more raw and relevant. “I think Wendy will be a character that contemporary women – both girls and their mothers – can relate to,” he says. And, like Barrie’s original Wendy, Isabela’s Wendy must, in the end, change the way she views growing up. “We should look at growing up as blossoming and not so much a complete change,” she says. Her sassy Wendy might put it to Peter Pan this way, Isabela says: “I didn’t change. I grew up. You should try it sometime.”

Jeffrey Seller, Tony Awardwinning producer of Rent, Avenue Q and In the Heights, makes his directorial debut at DTC with Fly.

FLYWELCOME

I

TO A NEW NEVERLAND

t’s three weeks out from the first rehearsal of Fly, a new musical based on J.M. Barrie’s novel Peter Pan, and director Jeffrey Seller is just back from a trip to Las Vegas, where he was creating the play’s flying sequences. Did he get to take to the air? “I didn’t do Peter Pan to not fly like Peter Pan,” he says, laughing. “I have been waiting my whole life for this.” That’s no exaggeration. Seller says Fly, which premieres July 2 at Dallas Theater Center’s Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, is the Peter Pan he wanted to see as a boy. He always had a hard time suspending disbelief when he watched previous incarnations of Peter Pan, he says. He just couldn’t picture a middle-aged woman flying across the stage in green tights as a boy who wouldn’t grow up. He wanted the true adventure – fun, exciting, sad and scary – that Barrie created in 1904 with his play, and then perfected in 1911 with the beloved novel. “Though some scary things happen in all Peter Pans and lives are in danger, it’s always done tongue-in-cheek. No one is ever worried about the children,” he explains. “I want to create genuine danger, not pantomimed danger. … I think

that’s fun. I love to go to the movies and get scared a little bit.” So, when you hear the name Peter Pan in relation to Seller’s Fly, erase all visions of Mary Martin in tights. Don’t think of Disney’s redheaded scamp singing “I Won’t Grow Up.” Don’t even consider Robin Williams in “Hook,” though that film had its dark moments. Instead, you’ll find percussion-driven music, with influences from West Africa and Brazil. The setting is contemporary. Wendy is a 12-year-old girl. And, Seller says, Peter is actually an 11-year-old boy in the throes of pre-pubescence – someone you can believe is a boy who won’t grow up. “If we can believe that, we can start to grapple with the questions the play asks. … What is the cost of growing up? What is the cost of not growing up?” Fly is Seller’s directorial debut. As with Peter and Wendy and the prospect of growing up, Seller says he feels excited and scared about this new role. “I think that it’s natural that I wake up once in while and say, ‘I hope no one discovers that I’m a fraud.’ I think that has happened at every stage of my life that I’ve taken a giant step forward,” he says.

heater has the power to change people’s lives. It can allow them to see the world in a new way or express feelings they’ve felt deeply. It can connect us to each other. And it can be great fun.

Most people who love seeing great theater had their first experience attending plays when they, themselves, were young. For me, it was a production of The Sound of Music. My parents took me to see the show and I was instantly hooked – by the songs (which I then proceeded to sing every day for the next month!), by the story (I desperately wanted Maria to marry Captain von Trapp and be a good mother to those poor lonely children!), and by the experience of sitting in a room filled with people all laughing and clapping together. One way in which theater captures audience members’ imaginations is by reflecting their own experiences back at

them. For children, this means that it can be very powerful to see young characters portrayed on stage – even more so if those child characters are played by children. This “mirror effect” can be inspiring (“I want to sing and dance like that, too!”) and it can be emotionally moving (“That character feels the same way I do”). Dallas Theater Center produces professional theater productions for the entire family each summer to inspire a new generation of theatergoers. With Fly, we’re confident that adults will love the breathtakingly talented cast, the hummable songs, the dazzling scenery and costumes, and the magical flying. But we’re also thrilled that young audiences will have the opportunity to see Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys played by professional child actors, rather than by adults pretending to be kids. When Peter Pan takes flight, a small child in the audience will be able to look up and say, “That could be me.” And, indeed, it could.

Imagination takes flight

this summer with Dallas Theater Center. The 2013 SummerStage program features a Neverland theme, in conjunction with Fly, a musical that follows classic characters Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys on an exciting new journey in Neverland.

Flight

SummerStage is in its 13th year, offering children ages 4-18 the opportunity to explore the world of theater. The program educates students in the fundamentals and techniques of theater, and ignites imaginations to create valuable learning experiences.

wi t h Dallas

Hull notes that Fly is both a fantastically entertaining show and a discussion of real-life issues. “You pick up the classic themes of not wanting to grow up and finding a place to escape in order to just be a kid,” Hull says. “But Fly takes it a step further, suggesting part of that need is wanting to be able to forget, to let go of the harder stuff, which, even as a grown-up Wendy, is something most of us probably wish we could do.”

SummerStage encourages students to fully explore what it means to work together. “Theater asks you to create with a team, so there’s an added layer of communication, negotiation and articulation of your ideas,” says Hull. “I think that the arts at the most basic level provide a place for participants to find their voices, and maybe a new way to express their thoughts, hopes and dreams.”

Center s e c t i o n

“Wendy hates everything about grown-ups – she wears her emotions on her sleeve and is not afraid of showing when she is mad, when she cares about someone, or when she likes a boy,” Moner says. “She is strong, tough and she swordfights!”

“We have teachers focused on everything from vocal training to text analysis, story/ drama for the very young, of course acting, and this summer even African dance,” says Rachel Hull, Director of Education and Community Enrichment.

Based on J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and directed by Jeffrey Seller, Fly presents beloved characters in a new light. Isabela Moner, who plays Wendy, says her character is quite different from the classic depiction.

Details An Italianate Idyll at 9806 Inwood Road

I

conic Italian designer Giorgio Armani once said that to create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail. That certainly seems to have been the mantra for the current owners of 9806 Inwood Road during its 18-month renovation. The results of their painstaking planning is evident everywhere, perhaps most notably on the individual placement of mosaic tiles surrounding the new pool — the work was measured from a satellite to ensure accuracy. And the mosaic tiles themselves were no ordinary, mass-produced variety: They hail from the Basilica di San Marco in Venice. It’s a fitting snapshot of the decidedly impressive residence known as Dans Bois Crête, which translates to “In Wood Ridge.” From the moment you enter the laced iron gates and wind your way along a serene creek to the grand circular entrance featuring an Italian fountain, you’ll appreciate just how exceptional an outcome was produced by such devotion to specifics. The current owners purchased the home in 2007, and if you happened to have toured Dans Bois Crête when it was on the market then, you will hardly recognize it now. All of the landscaping was redesigned by Harold Leidner, capitalizing on the tranquility of the creek flowing through the property and insulating the 5.3-acre estate from Inwood Road in a cloak of invisibility visà-vis lush greenery. The private garden off the master bedroom carries through the Italian influence seen on the rest of the grounds. Step inside and be greeted by the gold-leafcovered ceiling of the entry hall. You’ll appreciate the octagonal coffered ceiling in the dining room, also in gold leaf and crowned by a Baccarat chandelier. Reminiscent of the intricate craftsmanship of Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio, the ceiling measures 18 inches thick. At over 14,000 square feet, 9806 Inwood is palatially sized; however, in revamping the home,

rooms were designed to feel comfortable instead of overwhelming. Multiple living areas provide options for entertaining and relaxing, connected on the main level by a luminous Venetian plaster corridor. Arched French doors and a shaded terrace off the formal seating area allow unencumbered views of the gardens. Floor-to-cathedral-ceiling windows in a more casual living area also invite you to gaze on the verdant landscaping. The master retreat is surrounded by a screened porch from which to admire the private courtyard, along with his-and-her bathrooms with heated floors, custom closets and a safe room. In fact, throughout this six-bedroom home with seven full baths and three half baths, each room features fine touches, including walls of Venetian plaster, cherry wood paneling, leather and silk. One space that’s sure to be a favorite is accessed through a camouflaged wood-paneled door, which opens to reveal a stairway leading to a basement like none other. A wine vault, which accommodates 2,200 bottles lying horizontally, is not only climate controlled, but also immune to vibration, light and humidity. The wine room includes a space for tasting, lounging and dining, along with a walk-in humidor. In addition, the basement also boasts a true home theater, complete with a ticket booth and concession stand. The theater itself invites you to relax in plush velvet seating, although you might find yourself admiring the intricate crown molding as much as the film. Not surprisingly, the owners’ attention to detail reaches beyond the main residence and its gardens to the property’s 10-car garage. Collectors will appreciate that six of its bays are climate controlled for optimum storage conditions. It’s a touch that even Giorgio Armani — himself an automobile connoisseur — would appreciate. To schedule a viewing of 9806 Inwood Road, contact Christy Berry at 214.693.1600 or cberry@ briggsfreeman.com.

EXTRAORDINARY NEIGHBOR On May 16th, Laree Hulshoff hosted 150 guests supporting A.W.A.R.E. at “An Artist against Alzheimer’s” in the Gallery at Museum Tower.

F

or Laree Hulshoff, living among art is a requirement. Her new home at Museum Tower is in the heart of Dallas’ thriving Arts District. The view out her 23rd floor window overlooks some of the best architecture in the world and a vibrant city that this Oklahoma native has come to love. That sensibility toward art and community came together in a beautiful way for Hulshoff, who recently gathered 150 of her closest friends for cocktails and hors d’oeurves to benefit A.W.A.R.E., the Alzheimer’s Women’s Association for Resources Education. Hulshoff, who chaired “An Artist against Alzheimer’s,” has long been a supporter of the group, which raises money for the Greater Dallas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and its efforts toward research, treatment, education and resources for families living with the disease. Hulshoff also sits on the advisory council for the Center for Vital Longevity, UT Dallas, which focuses on the aging mind and cognitive health.

The event, which filled the Gallery at Museum Tower, was held on the heels of the popular Dallas Art Fair, an annual celebration of galleries, dealers, painters, sculptors and more. Nationally recognized artist and SMU graduate Dan Rizzie donated two works that were auctioned to support the A.W.A.R.E. mission. “Guests and committee members all had a wonderful time and, more importantly, we had the opportunity to support the tremendous work of the Alzheimer’s Association,” said Hulshoff. “This event would not have been possible without the help of wonderful committee members, Bill Booziotis, Barbara Buzzell, Barbara Daseke, Anne DeFilippo, Ben J. Fischer, Kay Hammond, Dr. Denise Park, Gale Sachson, Lisa Shardon, Ashley Tatum and Denise Yates. Their contribution to the event was immeasurable.”

egardless of the production, if it’s appearing on stage at the Santa Fe Opera, it’s likely to be stellar. Since 1957, the adobe theater has seated 85,000 guests for premieres that have included Lulu, Madame Mao and Daphne.The summer lineup boasts The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein, The Marriage of Figaro, La Donna Del Lago and La Traviata — all of which you’ll want to be front row. But the real star of the season is the world premiere of Theodore Morrison’s Oscar, a composition about the life of Oscar Wilde. See David Daniels, Dwayne Croft, Heidi Stober and William Burden in the opening-night production July 27. Arrive up to three hours early for outdoor tailgating.

The Great

OUTDOOrs

C

onsider for a moment a picture frame. And now, a beautifully landscaped outdoor space. In many ways, they’re not so terribly different. Both enclose works of art, as it were, while giving added dimension to the overall schemes they convey. And just as a frame is carefully chosen so it doesn’t overpower the artwork within, the same care is given to a truly exceptional outdoor oasis. At their best, such spaces offer an escape where their owners can commune with nature, enjoying the elements that houses strive to shield us from. They’re a refreshing contrast to the interiors we carefully plan and create. Nonetheless, they afford us just as many opportunities to create intimate retreats in the form of charming courtyards or expansive and dramatic pools. Perhaps most interesting are the possibilities of composing outdoor rooms beneath pavilions and verandas. Thanks to technological advances, outdoor furniture is now finished to withstand even the harshest of weather, and the same goes for fabrics used to cushion the pieces. As a result, residents can now extend their decorative visions beyond the bounds of the walls they live within. Of course, nothing compares to what becomes possible with the selection of plants for one’s backyard. The exhaustive array of shapes and colors run the gamut from soaring palm trees to chipper annuals that greet us with the arrival of the seasons. In fact, with a good composition of flowers, trees and shrubs, anything can be achieved. The outdoor spaces that surround our homes define our experiences within them — adding value not only to our everyday lives but to the investments that our homes represent.
