Wickham is truly despicable and self-righteous as he strives to manipulate those around him with false charm.

The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly Breathes New Life into Austen’s Timeless Characters

Meanwhile, the focus on Pemberly’s servants contributes a Downton Abbey-esque element to the plot, allowing for the examination of its feminist themes from multiple perspectives. As Cassie, Jackman is outspoken and determined, deftly playing off of Block’s well-intentioned and sweet Brian. Doukas’s Mrs. Reynolds is stern but loving and is clearly the figure that unites Pemberly’s unique inhabitants.

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

are left with a comic drama that is as feminist as it is festive. The Wickhams picks up two years following Pride and Prejudice’s conclusion, with Elizabeth Bennet (Rebecca Mozo) and Darcy (Adam Poss) living at Pemberly. Yet while Elizabeth and Darcy, as well as the off-stage Jane and Bingley, have found their happy endings, Lydia (Chelsea Kurtz) remains married to the disreputable Wickham (Kyle T. Hester). In fact, in Pride and Prejudice, Darcy forces Wickham to marry Lydia after he runs off with her with no intentions of marriage — a scandal that would destroy Lydia and her entire family’s standing in 19th century British society.

Darcy’s intervention was originally written as an admirable move that saves the Bennet household. However, The Wickhams forces viewers to reexamine how Lydia was forced Rebecca Mozo, Adam Poss, Nike Doukas, Kodi Jackman, Kyle T. Hester, and Will Block in The to accept a future with Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly a lecherous, dishonest man in a world where divorce was practically unheard of. As Elizabeth and Darcy welcome Lydia into their home for the holidays, it becomes increasingly apparent that her The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly is playing through marriage is unhealthy. When December 19th. For tickets ($47-$77) visit www.etcsb.org Wickham unexpectedly appears,

the narrative takes an openly feminist stance as Lydia discovers her self-worth and Elizabeth tries to help her. Heightening this feminist theme is an original subplot that focuses on Pemberly’s housemaid, Cassie (Kodi Jackman), and an ambitious footman named Brian (Will Block). Cassie wants to provide for herself as an independent woman, causing Brian to confront his internalized 19thcentury expectations and views of women. Meanwhile, the housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds (Nike Doukas), offers comfort and assistance to everyone, struggling to accept Wickham’s new persona in contrast to the boy she once knew.

In true Austen style, these serious themes are softened by the character’s lively natures, with each individual feeling like a complete person rather than just a symbol or idea. They laugh and joke with each other one moment, the next showing themselves as vulnerable and confused. The production’s set, designed by Bruce Goodrich, also adds to the play’s vibrancy, transporting audience members into Pemberly’s kitchen and adjoining servant quarters. Combined with gorgeous costumes designed by Kate Bergh and the cast’s stellar performances, audience members will feel completely transported into the world of Pemberly at Christmastime.

Each actor fully captures the nuances and desires of their respective characters. Mozo’s Elizabeth is witty and caring, peppering conversations with lively asides. Poss portrays a Darcy who has largely abandoned his haughty ways but maintains a commanding presence. Kurtz on more than one occasion almost steals the show, adding real depth and emotional growth to Lydia’s Chelsea Kurtz and Kodi Jackman as Elizabeth and Cassie character. Hester’s in The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly Photos by Zach Mendez

L

ENDING 21ST-CENTURY FREEDOM to Jane Austen’s revolutionary work, The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly answers a question Pride and Prejudice fans have asked for centuries: what happens to Lydia after she marries Wickham? Directed by Michael Butler and produced by the Ensemble Theatre Company, this cleverly written sequel graces the New Vic Theatre stage through December 19th. With a cast of actors who perfectly embody each character’s individuality and wit, audiences

Rebecca Mozo and Chelsea Kurtz as Elizabeth and Lydia in The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberly

This inclusion of the servants’ perspectives also raises questions about the nature of privilege. Wickham repeatedly blames his malicious actions on the fact that he grew up knowing he would never be handed comfort — he would have to take it. While this perspective is inexcusable for Wickham’s actions, the fact remains that it, combined with Brian’s interest in escaping service, begs audiences to reflect how privilege and lack thereof impacts people’s lives.

AUDED AS HER “GENERATION’S MOST INTERESTING MOVIE STAR,” Kristen Stewart is a force to be reckoned with on-screen. Initially gaining popularity for her role in the Twilight saga, Stewart has since exhibited her dizzying range by starring in films such as Café Society, Charlie’s Angels, Seburg, and most recently, Spencer. Now, in honor of this performance and her significant career, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced it will honor Stewart with the American Riviera Award on March 4th, 2022. “Seeing Stewart in Spencer is not a

question of a star being born for she was already that, but we’re witnessing the coming into her own as a major cinematic force,” said SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling. Presented to actors who have made meaningful contributions to American Cinema, SBIFF’s American Riviera Award is a prestigious honor. Last year, the award went to Delroy Lindo following his striking performance in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods. Past honorees also include Renée Zellweger, Viggo Mortenson, Sam Rockwell, Jeff Bridges, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, and Robert Redford. Stewart is a welcome addition to this

Ilumina una vida

Light Up A Life

Queridos amigos,

Dear Friends,

I

ENTER THIS HOLIDAY SEASON with a profound sense of gratitude. If the past few years of uncertainty has taught us anything, it’s that time and people are precious and that every day is an opporutnity. Even with the loss and grief, there has been this unique gift of time for us to looking inward. Whether it’s taking a second look at our careers, assessing our health, redefining what and who is most important in our lives, or reminding ourselves not to sweat the small stuff, and to be thankful for all that we do have – particularly when there is so much tragedy and suffering elsewhere. Light up A Life also serves as a meaningful opportunity for reflection and a communial sharing of grief and loss – and celebrating those we miss. It’s a unique way of incoporating those who are no longer with us into the holiday season.

Ilumina una vida también sirve como una oportunidad significativa para la reflexión y un intercambio comunitario del dolor y la pérdida, y para celebrar a aquellos que extrañamos. Es una forma única de incorporar a aquellos que ya no están con nosotros a la temporada navideña.

As you know, this is the second year that this tradition has been vitrual. Last year, when we were forced to combine our Light Up A Life Ceremonies into one digital event, we worried about the loss of the personal “in person” connection which is at the heart of these events; the shared experience of loss and grief in the Light Up A Life setting is magical, emotional, and impossible to replicate remotely. However, with the power of technology, we have expanded the personal stars component of Light Up A Life with an online digital tree that can be personalized with stars that have photos and special messages and can be viewed and shared by anyone and everyone. Anyone can dedicate a star on their virtual Tree of Remembrance. With a minimum donation of $15, folks can showcase an online star(s) with their loved one’s name, photo, and a special message. This can be done through December 31st at our webiste, www.hospiceofsb.org Digital stars are also complimented by “real stars” that our staff and volunteers will put up on “real trees” at each of the four locations that can be visited throughout the David Selberg, holidays. Actual trees are currently on display in Santa CEO Hospice of SB Barbara in front of the Lobero Theater, Carpinteria at the Seal Fountain on Linden, Goleta at Camino Real Marketplace, and Montecito at the small park at the corner of San Ysidero and East Valley. Trees will stay up through the end of the year. In this way, we can show our love and gratitude to those who have died and who we are missing this holiday season throughout the entire month of December. And, our digital tree is also up at our website and many have already begun “hanging” their virtual stars. Of course, nothing can replace our in-person events and we very much hope that we can all gather together again as a community and “in person” in 2022! Sincerely,

E

NTRO EN ESTA TEMPORADA NAVIDEÑA con un profundo sentido de gratitud. Si los últimos años de incertidumbre nos han enseñado algo, es que el tiempo y las personas son preciosos y que cada día es una oportunidad. Incluso con la pérdida y el dolor, ha habido este regalo único de tiempo para que miremos hacia adentro. Ya sea que se trate de echar un segundo vistazo a nuestras carreras, evaluar nuestra salud, redefinir qué y quién es más importante en nuestras vidas, o recordarnos a nosotros mismos que no debemos preocuparnos por las cosas pequeñas y estar agradecidos por todo lo que tenemos, especialmente cuando hay tanta tragedia y sufrimiento en otros lugares.

Como sabéis, este es el segundo año que esta tradición es virtual. El año pasado, cuando nos vimos obligados a combinar nuestras Ceremonias Ilumina una vida en un evento digital, nos preocupó la pérdida de la conexión “en persona” personal que está en el corazón de estos eventos; la experiencia compartida de pérdida y dolor en el escenario de Ilumina una vida es mágica, emocional e imposible de replicar de forma remota. Sin embargo, con el poder de la tecnología, hemos expandido el componente de estrellas personales de Ilumina una vida con un árbol digital en línea que se puede personalizar con estrellas que tienen fotos y mensajes especiales y que todos pueden ver y compartir. Cualquiera puede dedicar una estrella en su Árbol del Recuerdo virtual. Con una donación mínima de $15, las personas pueden exhibir una(s) estrella(s) en línea con el nombre, la foto y un mensaje especial de su ser querido. Esto se puede hacer hasta el 31 de diciembre en nuestro sitio web, www.hospiceofsb.org Las estrellas digitales también se complementan con “estrellas reales” que nuestro personal y voluntarios colocarán en “árboles reales” en cada uno de los cuatro lugares que se pueden visitar durante los días festivos. Los árboles reales están actualmente en exhibición en Santa Bárbara frente al Teatro Lobero, en Seal Fountain en Linden en Carpinteria, Camino Real Marketplace en Goleta y Montecito en el pequeño parque en la esquina de San Ysidero y East Valley. Los árboles permanecerán los cuatro lugares hasta el final del año. De esta manera, podemos mostrar nuestro amor y gratitud a los que han fallecido y a quienes echamos de menos en estas fiestas durante todo el mes de diciembre. Y nuestro árbol digital también está en nuestro sitio web y muchos ya han comenzado a “colgar” sus estrellas virtuales. Por supuesto, nada puede reemplazar nuestros eventos en persona y esperamos que podamos reunirnos todos nuevamente como comunidad y “en persona” en 2022. Sinceramente,

Cinema VOICE

Two Films Working Outside the Hollywood System:

Bergman Island and Red Rocket By Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

Bergman Island A thinly disguised autobiographical film Bergman Island, is the newest project from French independent filmmaker Mia HansenLøve. The film within a film plot deftly spins a tale of a couple who embark on a writing retreat on the Swedish island of Fårö, where legendary Swedish director Bergman shot some of his films of the mid-sixties such as Through A Glass Darkly. Berman actually built and lived there on a remote, pinesurrounded beach. The film within a film features a terrific cast and a revolving back and forth tale of two romantic relationships that are both at turns semi-toxic. The director is a specialist in films about contemporary relationships and this project is no exception. The cast is unusually good with keen performances coming in from the female leads especially Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) and Mia Wasikowska (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland). The interludes and sequences are intriguing, especially the passage of a strange young man escaping with Vicky Krieps’ character, a burgeoning writer and the somewhat ignored wife of a film director, for an exploratory day on the remote island. Some moments recall Ingmar Bergman’s Summer Interlude and Summer with Monika, two classics from the early fifties era. Mia Hansen-Løve’s movie within a movie approach is intriguing and she launches a film that talks reflectively about differing relationship issues that play out in different stages of life. The film is surprising in the little moments and the landscape figures prominently as the locations are rare and exquisite. Far afield from any formula that works in Hollywood this writer-director thrives in the independent realm, and finds her own original cinematic pathways, delivering a delicate refraction of contemporary relationships between women and men. The director is at the top of her game and Bergman Island is easily one of the most thoughtful films of the 2021 year of releases. This film can be streamed and rented from Amazon and is worth watching.

Red Rocket with Suzanna Son and Simon Rex

Red Rocket

Also working apart from Hollywood is writer-director-producer Sean Baker (The Florida Project and Tangerine) who’s newest project is the engaging Red Rocket. The setting is closer to home, set at a Texas suburb near Galveston. The narrative focuses on society’s economic lower rung margins. The director Sean Baker, very far apart from the studio system, goes his own way with human dramas of people who struggle. The main character is a refugee from the Hollywood porn industry and charms his way back into small town life with a never ending stream of false promises. The film recalls the theatrical plays and films from Tennessee Williams such as The Sweet Bird of Youth. The world the director portrays is a melting pot and colorblind and is filled with rich characterizations from the cast including Simon Rex, Bree Elrod, Suzanna Son, and Brittany Rodriguez. Red Rocket features characters who scratch the harshness of modern society finding some humor at all levels. For this project the director cast both professionals and first timers and likes to leave it to audiences to form their own conclusions. Baker presented his film and talked about his filmmaking process with Roger Durling for a program organized by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. He revealed how he found his unique and special cast, and how he wrote and shelved the project for years until the pandemic year presented an opportunity to make a film with a very small crew and cast. The locations of the marshlands with the oil and gas industrial yards were strange and unique and suggested themes of environmental justice and the struggles of those at the bottom of the economy in the USA. But the story also has moments of humor, redemption, and fantasy and is easily one of the best films of the year. n

LOCOVORE YULETIDINGS: Christmas music, movies, and other cultural grab bag items runneth over this year, including from the 805. One must-see-hear locallyproduced item comes from the creative team of singer-songwriterproducer-nice-guy Zach Madden and veteran artistic voice Brad Nack, who collaborated on a delightful taste treat of a song/video, She’s Christmas Eve. A suited (as in suit-and-tie, not Santa suit) Madden sings of this magical “Eve” while picking a simple, hypnotic chord pattern on his nylon guitar, while, in the video, visuals get giddy and tipsy, apropos to the mood and kitsch-kindly nature of the season. The song is linked to the British company Kringle & Company, www.kringleandcouk.com. Dipping back into the archives of homegrown Christmas music classics worthy of keeping on the “keeper shelf ” of your yuletide collection, it’s time to revisit the warm and wunnerful Tom Ball album ‘Tis the Season, recorded at David West’s studio and released in 2009, but timeless as all get out. This is one of now several fine solo guitar albums by Ball, best known as the blues harmonica king and singer in the venerable duo Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan. Ball’s secret life as a fluid acoustic guitar conjurer needs to come out of the closet more often. Personally, I keep Ball’s Christmas music

N A SEASON WHEN ALTRUISM, AND THE DESIRE THEREOF, RUNS HIGHER THAN USUAL, the time seems more than ripe for the return of the locally-spawned phenomenon known by its acronym TRAP. That would be “The Rhythmic Arts Project,” an inspiring therapy-throughdrumming endeavor for developmentally disabled adults and children gone global, but launched right here in Carpinteria by established drummer Eddie Tuduri, twenty years ago. In keeping with a long list of notable benefit concerts for the program, TRAP returns to the Lobero on Saturday, November 11th, a celebration of humanity

and the healing powers of music, amidst the season of giving. Tuduri, whose resume includes playing in stages and studios as well as connecting with a high-profile list of musician friends, had a debilitating body surfing accident which left him partially paralyzed. He channeled his energy into creating an educational and therapeutic program, funded in part by concerts Tuduri organizes with well-placed friends. Saturday’s stellar guest list included drummer great Vinnie Coliuta, soulful singer Tata Vega, and guitarist Chris Pinnick, of Chicago. Also on hand are pianist/saxist Jimmy Caleri and former Santa Barbaran musician, bassist Steve Nelson, ever-ready for a challenge or a groove pocket. Another kind of all-star confabulation descends on Campbell Hall, next up in the UCSB Arts & Lectures fall concert series, in the form of the band dubbed My Bluegrass Heart, playing on Wednesday. Talk about an embarrassment of bluegrass and “newgrass” riches: the project, out touring to promote a stunning new album, features banjo master and iconoclast Bela Fleck (whose Campbell Hall history goes back to SRO shows with his fusiongrass band the Flecktones),

Ward, and band and holidaze accoutrements) and a show by Mr. Feelgood, our red-headed and now Ventura-based friend Brett Dennen. But my “discovery” of the week came with Dennen’s entrancing opener, the mysterious and inventive singer-songwriter from Nebraska, Sophia Boro, whose soft speaking voice and muted thumb-strumming guitar work contrasted boldly with her big, intense, quixotic voice and refreshingly structuretwisting way as a songwriter.

Robert Cray will play the Lobero on December 14th

For my money, soul-bluesman Robert Cray made one of his finest albums to date with That’s What I Heard, released early in 2020 but virtually lost in the lockdown haze. At last, Cray – who lives in the Santa Ynez Valley when not out in the world somewhere – is back in the live music swim, and lands back at the Lobero Theater on Tuesday, December 14th. Blues hero Kim Wilson, aka “Goleta Slim” before his meteoric rise to the Fabulous Thunderbirds and other top tier gigs, comes home to play at the Carpinteria Boys and Girls Club on Saturday afternoon, a benefit for the Club. In an acoustic musicrich week, another unplugged treat hits town at the Ojai Underground Exchange tonight (December 10th), when the Brooklyn-based, Pat Metheny-esque duo of Cameron Mizell and Charlie Ruh perform, on the road to promote a jewel of an album, Local Folklore.

Woodard is a veteran cultural critic, who wrote for the Los Angeles Times for 25 years, has contributed to Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, DownBeat, and many music magazines, and a long association with the Santa Barbara Independent and News-Press. To date, he has published two books for Silman-James Press, on jazz legends Charles Lloyd and Charlie Haden, respectively. He recently published a debut novel, Ladies Who Lunch. Woodard is also a musician, a guitarist, songwriter, and head of the Household Ink Records label.

NVITING PASSERSBY TO TAKE TIME TO STOP AND TASTE THE GELATO THIS BUSY HOLIDAY SEASON, Zio & Sweet Italian Desserts satisfies visitors’ sweet tooths with dripping, delicious, traditional treats. From gelato and sorbetto to pastries, cakes, and coffee, each item in the intimate Paseo Nuevo shop is authentically made by a family from Milan, Italy. The result (yum!) is a fun and flavorful dessert experience sure to delight customers of all ages. “The really, really good thing about selling stuff like this, that makes it really easy, is that it’s absolutely delicious,” said business owner Paul Spriggs. “I like the fact that people are coming in here because it’s something they want, and then as an added bonus, they love what they get.” Spriggs launches Zio & Sweet after more than 40 years of working in the music industry. Arriving in town eight years ago after living in New York and Los Angeles, Spriggs has worked as a tour manager, production manager, and tour accountant for a multitude of popular bands, including The Go-Go’s, Mötley Crüe, Prince, and more. However, when the pandemic hit, he decided it was time for a change in order to spend more time at

home with his family. He reflected upon how much he enjoyed his first job in high school working for a burger-pizza-sandwich joint called Runaway Bay, whose main highlight was its ice cream. Yet Spriggs knew he wanted to bring something more original to Santa Barbara. After remembering all of his trips to Italy while working in the music industry, he decided that establishing an Italian gelato and sweets store was the direction to take. Located at 819-A State Street, Zio & Sweet Italian Desserts is named for Spriggs’ childhood nickname of “Zio” and his wife, who he calls “Sweet.” Determined to ensure that his menu is as authentic as possible, Spriggs sources his shop’s food items from a Milanese family who have maintained their own dessert business since 1946, distributing sweets out of New Jersey as well as Milan itself. “Having been in Europe 48 times in my life, I’ve been in Italy enough to know what good gelato tastes like, and this stuff is the best,” commented Spriggs. “Even the vanilla bean is crazy!” Boasting a soothing lavender and white color scheme, Zio & Sweet Italian Desserts’ welcoming atmosphere is completed by its array of twelve gelatos with flavors ranging from classics like chocolate, strawberry,

and vanilla bean to the unique tastes of tiramisu, amarena cherry, and sea salt caramel. There are also six sorbetto flavors, with highlights including lemon, mango, and mixed berry. Guests have the option to take home pints, quarts, and half gallons of gelato and sorbetto if they so desire. Beyond these frozen treats, customers will find pastries and cakes that embody the spirit of Italy such as cannolis and sfogliatella, a pastry filled with ricotta and orange. Additional items include profiteroles, lemon blueberry cheesecake, tiramisu, and the bomba spumoni, which consists of chocolate, strawberry, and pistachio gelato with a chocolate shell. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are also offered to enjoy with these and other desserts. 12 to 8pm Mon - Sat, 11am to 7pm Sun Paseo Nuevo, 819-A State St www.zioandsweet.com

Harbor Lights Up With the Signs of the Season!

I

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

T’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS! The eight days of Hanukkah have already passed by my little window on Einstein’s fast moving train and I wonder how the days and months seem to fly by so quickly – at least from my perspective along the rails they have. Not that last December’s festivities were much to write home about! A little walk along Stearns Wharf and the harbor walkway was definitely a sign that despite the daily news and the uncertainties of the coronavirus, the waterfront wasn’t interested in a replay of Rip Van Winkle’s 2020 holiday snooze! On Stearns Wharf the waterfront’s official Christmas tree had already been placed on

the shoreward finger near the Sea Center... unlighted and but ready for its Close-Up. Shops and businesses along the pier displayed trees of their own and lighted decorations on their rooftops. Across the way at the harbor, wreaths with red bows graced the walkway lights in anticipation of the coming festivities. Even the Maritime Museum joined in, garlanding their windows with wreaths and a big candy cane at the entrance. I’m told that a whole new array of breakwater flags will soon appear to welcome the year 2022! Sitting upstairs in the newly renovated Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the sound of the horn with boats on the water for the last race of the season, the Holiday Regatta, was a reminder that the 2021 racing season is now in the history books. But let it not be said that this Club is MIA, not by a long shot! It’s the holiday and the fun begins with the (almost!) Annual Holiday Luncheon for the SBYC Women, a romantic Candlelight Dinner in the revisioned dining area and the much anticipated Parade of Lights. The traditional New Year’s Eve party will quickly follow with the passing of the helm to the steady hand of next year’s commodore, Eli Parker. Speaking of the Parade of Lights, Mike Wiltshire, Director of the Waterfront Department, exclaimed with gusto, “I’m happy to announce that the Parade of Lights is back this year! Waterfront staff has spent the last couple weeks stringing lights and bringing the holidays to the harbor and Stearns Wharf. On Sunday, December 12th we’ll be getting back into tradition with the 2021 Parade of Lights and a day full of fun for everyone.” He added, “Honestly, having postponed last year’s festivities due to COVID restrictions I’m really looking forward to getting back to something that resembles normal!” The boat parade begins at 5:30pm and will include approximately 30 enthusiastic watercraft highlighting this year’s theme “Magic Under the Moonlight.” The day’s festivities, however, start at noon at the City Pier with an actual Winter Wonderland: ten tons of snow for the kiddies aided by a bevy of elves and lots of holiday music. It is rumored that Santa might make a Socially-Distanced appearance. One of the most important events of the day will take place at 5pm on Stearns Wharf with the official tree lighting ceremony signaling the start of the waterfront’s holiday celebration. Of course, then... the Parade of Lights! And who can forget the awesome fireworks ending the day? Kudos to the Waterfront Department for making up for the 2020 lull this holiday season! As we honor the coming of the Winter Solstice, whether it be with the lights of the Hanukkah menorah, those on a beautiful Christmas tree, or the candles on our holiday tables, we celebrate that the planet has taken another journey around the sun. Through our traditions this time of year we honor Mother Nature’s reminder that darkness always turns to light! Looking forward to seeing you all at the harbor this weekend... Photos by Sigrid Toye

skyrocket over the years. The study showed how rent control would make tenants more likely to stay in a rentcontrolled unit versus moving into a new market rate unit thus reducing the available stock of housing. It also caused property owners to remove rental stock from the supply and sell off for owner occupants thus increasing the amount of competition for the remaining units in the market and that raises prices further when units do turn over. California overwhelmingly voted against Proposition 10 in 2018 that would have allowed for widespread rent control policies around the state. This is a bad idea plain and simple. It will hurt tenants as much as it will hurt property owners. City leaders should focus on creating more housing rather than trying to saddle property owners and tenants with more burdensome restrictions that will do little to make housing more affordable.

N A MOMENTOUS STEP TOWARD PROTECTING BEE POPULATIONS, a California Superior Court ruled last week that the bee-killing pesticide sulfoxaflor cannot be used in the state, as its approval violated California environmental law. The discontinued use of the pesticide will not only protect pollinators who are native to the area, including Monarch butterflies, but also commercial bee colonies that visit California for the state’s almond crop bloom. “Just about every commercial honey bee colony in this country spends at least part of the year in California, so this ruling is incredibly important for protecting pollinators in the United States,” said Steve Ellis, president of the Pollinator Stewardship Council. “In recent years, we’ve seen astounding losses to our honey bee colonies. Removing systemic insecticides such as sulfoxaflor will help ensure honey bees have a healthy future.” This court ruling emerges as the result of a case brought forward by the American Beekeeping Federation and the Pollinator Stewardship Council, which were represented in court by Earthjustice. The case was brought against the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. Produced by Corteva, sulfoxaflor can kill adult bees when encountered in low doses. When the chemical is introduced to the hive itself, the bee colony can experience difficulties with breeding, fighting disease, foraging, and surviving the winter. It has been referred to as a “next generation neonicotinoid,” and is absorbed into plants, meaning that insects can still be impacted by it for multiple days after exposure. “Honeybees and other pollinators are incredibly important in our food systems and our wider ecosystem, but they’re dying in droves because of pesticides like sulfoxaflor. With this ruling, the bees in California are getting much-needed relief just as we’re seeing some of the worst signs of colony collapse.” said Greg Loarie, Earthjustice attorney. “Now, California needs to turn its attention to protecting pollinators from the entire class of neonicotinoid pesticides that threaten our future.” For more information on Earthjustice and this case, visit www.earthjustice.org

SBPD Reports Increase in Vehicle Burglaries

L

OCALS ARE ENCOURAGED TO NOT STORE ANY VALUABLE ITEMS INSIDE THEIR CARS following the Santa Barbara Police Department receiving multiple reports about vehicle burglaries. Most of these break-ins have taken place in city parks, recreational areas, the municipal golf course, and beachfront and other parking lots citywide. In some instances, the criminals who break into vehicles with special tools remove only an individual’s credit and debit cards but leave their wallet and/or purse behind. Accordingly, these victims remain unaware that a crime has taken place until noticing the items are missing. “It is believed a group of criminals from outside the Santa Barbara area are specifically targeting vehicles that have valuables inside the vehicle,” reads a statement from the City of Santa Barbara.

Individuals who observe suspicious activity at the listed locations of previous break-ins are encouraged to call SBPD Dispatch at 805-882-8900 or 911.

Economic VOICE Are We Near Full Employment? By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

A

RE WE NEARING FULL EMPLOYMENT, at least among of those that want to return to work? That may be a strange question to ask when the just-arrived Omicron COVID variant is creating more uncertainty about future U.S. job growth. But the latest unemployment surveys out today showed that the unemployment rate dropped to 4.2 percent from 4.6 percent, and 537,000 more workers joined the labor force. I like the Calculated Risk graph that portrays where we are in the job recovery from 2020 peak employment (red line). We are fast approaching what was full employment then, as opposed to the slow job recovery from the 2007 Great Recession (blue line). However, just 210,000 new payroll jobs were added to payrolls in the separate Establishment survey, which is seasonally adjusted, and means 210,000 more jobs were created above what is normal for this time of year. Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 210,000 in November, and the unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage point to 4.2 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported

last December 3rd. Notable job gains occurred in professional and business services, transportation and warehousing, construction, and manufacturing. Employment in retail trade declined over the month. But the change in total nonfarm payroll employment for September was revised up by 67,000, from +312,000 to +379,000, and the change for October was revised up by 15,000, from +531,000 to +546,000, so employment in September and October combined is 82,000 higher than previously reported. We are nearing full employment because most of the job increase was in leisure and hospitality, which had lagged job creation in the durable goods sector earlier in the recovery. The leisure and hospitality sector gained

December 10, 2021

23,000 jobs in November. In March and April of 2020, leisure and hospitality lost 8.22 million jobs, and are now down 1.33 million jobs since February 2020. It has now added back about 84 percent of the jobs lost in March and April 2020, says BLS. Construction employment increased 31,000, and manufacturing also added 31,000 jobs. State and Local education lost 16,000 jobs, seasonally adjusted, which was a major reason fewer Establishment survey jobs were created.

Nonfarm employment has increased by 18.5 million since April 2020 but is down by 3.9 million, or 2.6 percent, from its pre-pandemic level in February 2020. So which of the two Labor Department’s surveys—the Establishment vs. the Household surveys—is the most accurate picture of U.S. employment? The Household survey also showed a much larger 1.14 million people found work in November, though it is a smaller survey than the Establishment survey and isn’t seasonally adjusted. The Labor Department also reported that In November, 3.6 million persons had been unable to work because their employer closed or lost business due to the pandemic – that is, they did not work at all or worked fewer hours at some point in the four weeks preceding the survey due to the pandemic. So COVID-19 is still putting a big dent in the employment picture, and we must now wait to see what happens this winter with new variants, to see whether the COVID-19 pandemic is tamed.

The Nutcracker

Returns to The Granada Stage – Live!

ISING TO THEIR TOES IN ANTICIPATION, children on stage and in the audience will share in the magic of the season (including a towering tree, sugar plums, and mice) as State Street Ballet brings The Nutcracker home to the Granada Theatre for two final performances on December 18th & 19th, following their winter tour with stops.

Among the other figures on stage you make the magic come alive will be guest artist Aaron Smyth, who recently finished a tour of Billy Elliot the Musical in its 10th Anniversary Tour of Australia; Deise Mendonça, Saori Yamashita, Marika Kobayashi, Tanner Blee, and Harold Mendez. In the character as Herr Drosselmeyer and Mother Ginger will be Sergei Domrachev.

“After a long time away from the stage, it is magical to return,” said Rodney Gustafson, SSB Executive and Artistic Director of the Ballet’s upcoming Granada performances. “This year feels very special and following our tour performances of The Nutcracker in Fresno, CA; Spokane, WA; and Durango, CO we are thrilled to be bringing the show home to the Granada next week. You never know what you’ve got till it’s gone, and we are so grateful to be on the comeback.”

Under and weaving itself through the entire performance is some of the most recognizable and loved music of the season, the score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Choreographed by Rodney Gustafson, with additional choreography by Gary McKenzie, Marina Fliagina, Megan Philipp, and Cecily MacDougall, The Nutcracker is an annual Santa Barbara original.

Featuring students from Gustafson Dance performing alongside State Street Ballet’s ensemble, accompanied by Opera San Luis Obispo Grand Orchestra, under the direction of Brian Asher Alhadeff, the holiday classic will see the role of Clara – the girl who dreams that her nutcracker comes to life – cast from among Gustafson Dance students for the Sunday, December 19th, matinee. Audrey Messer, a 13-yearold Dos Pueblos High School student who

Michael Towbes, and the major contributions of Margo Cohen-Feinberg, Tim Mikel, Sara Miller McCune, and Carrie Towbes to the arts in Santa Barbara. This exclusive event will feature works choreographed by William Soleau, Rodney Gustafson, Laurie Eisenhower, and Kassandra Taylor Newberry.

Emma Mathews

“The magic of the Nutcracker is wrapped in its spirit of the holidays. It is a joyful tradition and a time we can be filled with joy and gratitude,” Gustafson added.

“My original choreography was a Hollywood Nutcracker in the early years of the Company,” Gustafson recalled of the evolution of the choreography and presentation. “Nutcracker is the one ballet that almost everyone sees at some point in their life and I insist on it being entertaining. Although I have moved in a bit more of a traditional version, I keep some of the Hollywood flair and focus on so many places that are humorous and full of joy for the holidays.”

With Costume Design by A. Christina Giannini, Nicole Thompson, and Mary Etta Lang; Set Design by Daniel Nyiri and Yuriy Samodurov; and Mask and Doll Design by Robert Joyce the stage is set to ignite active imaginations.

Hairspray: brilliant satire, powerful politics

N ELECTRIFYING AMERICAN THEATRE GUILD TOURING PRODUCTION of Hairspray came to town last week by way of The Granada Theatre’s Broadway in Santa Barbara Series. The tight cast, fabulous live pit band of nine, superbly efficient lighting/ sound design, and enchanting mini-set pieces (it’s a touring show) worked to a tee. Magic abounded, lessons were learned, the wicked were vanquished (sweetly), heroes and heroines embraced, regardless of ethnicity or girth, Baltimore, music, the Atlantic Seaboard and beyond, were enlightened before our eyes, if only for a few brief moments on stage. A timelier work of art to tour the U.S. and give us pause at this time in the planet’s travails, can hardly be imagined. Two shows come to mind as uniquely powerful masterpieces of American musical theater, not just for their music alone, but for their considerable courage Welcome to the 60s! in laying bare, issues that haunt our history and collective consciousness, to this day. West Side Story (1957), the Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, and Arthur Laurents’ masterwork - Romeo and Juliet as Broadway musical - and Hairspray, based on John Waters’ 1988 film. Mid-century Baltimore (1962) is the musical/political petri dish for the withering satire and laugh out loud camp caricature of Hairspray, but the script’s laser (razor?) focus, on American cultural disfunction, white privilege, sexual/gender prejudice, and racism, take the show way beyond its cartoon colors and happy faces. Dissecting mercilessly, the raw underbelly that is America’s continuing curse - prejudice of all kinds - Hairspray is as harrowing as West Side Story in its messaging, but the poison pill administered via murder in WWS is sugar-coated, if no less toxic, in Hairspray. A case in point about the fun and fantasy of this clever touring show and the subtlety of simple illusion in the hands of Broadway pros, is the opening scene. Audience perception of reality is, for a tiny but thrilling moment, confused by a lighting illusion. The show’s anti-heroine, Tracy Turnblad (Niki Metcalf) is in bed. The audience illusion is of being above Tracy, looking down on her bed. In physical reality, we discover with a change of lighting, the bed, with Tracy in it, is set upright on its haunches. That opening scene represents the journey head, reality and illusion will be duplicitous. The Baltimorean schadenfreude in Hairspray’s creepy 1962 setting, is segregation. There’s a white’s only teenage TV dance show that white anti-heroine Tracy determines to crash with her new black dance friends and their “filthy” but exciting dance moves from the other side of Baltimore’s segregated tracks. Conservative connivances to stamp out the new Good Morning Baltimore dance movement fail, the cops renege and release the busted teens, arrested for being from the wrong side of town, happiness between mixed race and mixed class couples is celebrated, and a whole bunch of new dance moves from the ‘hood, become popular. The rabbit hole in Hairspray is its happy ending, an illusion, even for the 80’s when the show was created. The high energy (what an understatement) cast of Hairspray featured Niki Metcalf’s stunningly exhausting role as the aspiring high school dance competition persona non grata, Tracy Turnblad. Andrew Levitt, in the show’s classic skirt role as Tracy’s mom, Edna Turnblad, gave the audience on November 30th a performance that was vaudevillian in timbre as per its pedigree, but also nurturing in temperament, and humanitarian in character - a powerful acting achievement. The supporting cast of singers/actors/dancers were all at the top of their game, including Christopher Swan (Wilber Turnblad), Kaleb Jenkins (Brad), Gabriyel Thomas (Motormouth Maybelle), Billy Dawson (Corny Collins), Will Savarese (Link Larkin), and Keilee Albritton (Amber Von Tussle). Hairspray is also all about the popular dance forms of the early 60’s and Jerry Mitchell’s original choreography made the show not just jump up and down, but pop!

artist’s dedicated talent. Now, just in time for the holiday shopping season, 10 West Gallery is presenting Mata Ortiz pottery to the Santa Barbara community alongside its all-member 2021 Holiday Show. “We fell in love with the village and the villagers, and we want to keep supporting them,” commented Jan Ziegler, Founder and Director of 10 West Gallery. “We love the work and we’re excited to bring this to Santa Barbarans, because whereas you see more of this kind of work in Arizona and New Mexico, you don’t see it so much here.”

Mata Ortiz pottery’s roots date back 800 years, first created by the Paquimé and Mimbres people of the Casas Grandes, Mexico area. Over time, this art form was all but lost until several Mata Ortiz residents found ancient shards of the pottery in the 1950s. Inspired to revive this iconic style, local artists began copying the discovered pottery, later expanding their practices to include more contemporary designs. Today, Mata Ortiz pottery has grown into the village’s main cottage industry and is internationally renowned. colored and intricately decorated pot, vase, and animal statuette speaks to the region’s rich history and its

Pottery designs range from traditional, preColumbian figures and symbols to modern, geometrical patterns and depictions of animal motifs. The items’ styles also vary significantly, from large, decorative bowls and vases to smaller, quaint vessels. There are even some tiny animal statues, including turtles and farm animals.
