Delaware Valley Opera Company Presents Massenet’s Werther

The Delaware Valley Opera Company presents Jules Massenet’s romantic opera “Werther.” Mezzo-soprano Theresa Seri is “Charlotte.”

sylvania’s free one-day program Saturday, July 6 at Tredyffrin Public Library, Strafford, PA. For info, visit www.MainLine MUFON.com or call 610-613-0088.

he Delaware Valley Opera Company (DVOC) presents Jules Massenet’s romantic opera Werther this month. The French opera is based on Goethe’s short novel about a young poet who falls hopelessly in love with Charlotte, a girl he can’t have. His relentless pursuit of her despite all obstacles can only end in disaster for the young Werther. Werther is a high-flung drama right out of the age of Romanticism. Yet it is a familiar story, one that could take place any time, anywhere, according to Stage Director Al Chaney. To keep this timeless feel alive Chaney didn’t want to tie this production too closely to the late 1700s, the period in which it was set. “It’s really a timeless story and it’s incredibly well-told musically,” Chaney said. “This incredible music cuts right into you with a hyper realism. It cuts to the heart of what it means to be human that it puts to shame anything that you can find on TV or film.” Playing the piano reduction of this complex score is no small task. Yet pianist Michele Scanlon, who has been on the music staff of the prestigious Academy of Vocal Arts for more than 20 years, brings Massenet’s gorgeous music to life with power and sensitivity. The drama is further enhanced by Chaney’s staging choices. “The space the characters reside in will literally shrink as the story progresses,” Chaney said. “Werther starts out so incredibly optimistic. It is love at first sight. From there, his world starts closing in on him. Charlotte is bound to her duty to marry Albert. She won’t break her promise no matter what she might want for herself. And that idea is relevant today. People today would have a reason for not allowing themselves to follow their love now.” The story drives headlong to the only possible conclusion that Werther can imagine. “There is no choice for Werther. He can’t live without her, and he’s duty bound not to take Albert’s life,” Chaney said. “He will die for her because he can’t live without her and he can’t have her.” The cast includes tenor Jay Anstee as Werther, mezzosoprano Theresa Seri as Charlotte, baritone Matthew Maisiano as Albert, soprano Elizabeth Oliver as Sophie, bass Robert Davidson as The Bailiff, tenor David Price as Schmidt, bari-

PlayPenn Presents Ninth Annual New Play Development Conference JULY 4TH HOLIDAY EARLY DEADLINE

Conference Culminates in Free Staged Readings July 25 - July 28 layPenn, Philadelphia’s professional new play development organization, will hold its ninth annual New Play Development Conference from July 12-28 at the Adrienne Theater (2030 Sansom Street) in Philadelphia. The Conference will feature two-and-a-half weeks of intensive work on six works-in-progress by Gabriel Jason Dean (Terminus); Lisa Dillman (No Such Thing); Deborah Zoe Laufer (Informed Consent); Peter Gil-Sheridan (Cockfight); James Ijames (A Thousand Kinds of Silence); and Joe Waechter (Profiles). The Conference will culminate in staged readings of the plays on July 25, 26, 27 and 28, which are free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended and can be made online at www.playpenn.org or by calling 215-253-8838. “The goal of the conference is the development of plays, through a process of collaboration, experimentation, rehearsal and rewriting, rather than offering fully realized productions of finished works. Each year PlayPenn’s artistic staff evaluates our developmental process towards anever evolving and improved landscape for the next round of Conference playwrights. The needs of the playwright are paramount in our work, which manifests in the provision of a laboratory environment and the tools necessary for playwrights to create without the constraints and pressures of production, promotion and commercial considerations,” said Paul Meshejian, Artistic Director of PlayPenn. Terminus, by Gabriel Jason Dean, tells the tale of Eller Freeman and her bi-racial grandson, Jaybo, who live together down by the railroad tracks. When Eller’s health and sanity begin to fade, her tragic and violent past haunts her from the very walls of the old family home. On the verge of discovering love and a place in the world, seventeen-year-old Jaybo struggles to provide what his wily grandmother needs most. Terminus is the second play in The Attapulgus Elegies. Through the lives of the citizens of Attapulgus, the sevenplay collection chronicles the demise of a small mill town in Appalachia at the end of the 20th century. Terminus, directed by Lucie Tiberghien and dramaturged by Carrie Chapter, will be read on Saturday, July 27 at 8 p.m. Lisa Dillman’s No Such Thing introduces us to a middleaged married woman who takes an anonymous lover and begins an affair that blends sex and storytelling. Fact and fiction collide. No Such Thing examines the question of what makes a story – and the sometimes perilous consequences of finding one’s bliss. No Such Thing, directed by Meredith McDonagh and dramaturged by Kittson O’Neill, will be read on Saturday, July 27 at 4 p.m. Informed Consent by Deborah Zoe Laufer investigates the genomic breakthroughs that happen at breakneck speed, allowing us to learn more about what our futures may hold than ever before. But how much should we know? And who gets to decide? Inspired by a recent court case between the Havasupai tribe and Arizona State University, Informed Consent takes us into the personal and national debate about science v. belief, and whether our DNA is our destiny. Informed Consent, di rected by Sean Daniels and dramaturged by Kathryn Moroney, will be read Friday, July 26 at 8 p.m. LY

In Cockfight by Peter Gil-Sheridan, we meet Juanie, a young artist with fabulously drunk parents, who paints on a mansized egg. But when that egg hatches, the contents shake the fragile world of a family longing to achieve dreams that may be just beyond their grasp. Cockfight, directed by Anna Brenner and dramaturged by Lizzy Pecora, will be read Thursday, July 25 at 8 p.m. A Thousand Kinds of Silence by James Ijames places us in Mount Vernon on Christmas Eve, 1800. Martha Washington, widow to the first president, is ailing and surrounded by her half sister, Ann, and a group of faithful slaves who are all too aware that upon her death they will be emancipated. Drifting off into a fever dream where her slaves appear in visions both delightful and terrifying, Martha is taken through the great bend of American history. The irony of freedom in America, is played out by a cross section of characters from history like a three ring circus. A Thousand Kinds of Silence, directed by Niegel Smith and dramaturged by Michele Volansky, will be read Sunday, July 28 at 5 p.m. In Profiles by Joe Waechter, it’s just another night of popcorn and Jeopardy, when Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins receive a phone call that changes their lives forever. Through turns both harrowing and humorous, Profiles explores how an unthinkable act of violence echoes through the lives of the perpetrator’s family, as they struggle to find relief and forgiveness in a rapidly disintegrating world. Profiles, directed by Margot Bordelon and dramaturged by Sarah Mantell, will be read Sunday, July 28 at 2 p.m. Each year, PlayPenn also offers readings of plays that are at a stage in their development when the playwright is in need of simply hearing the play read before an audience, rather than engage in the full process of the two-and-a-half week Conference. In 2013, there will be readings of two additional new plays, which have never before presented publicly, including Uncanny Valley by Thomas Gibbons on Monday, July 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Willy Holtzman’s The First Mrs. Rochester on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m. The Conference Symposium will be held on Friday, July 26 at 6 p.m. Titled “Different Approaches, Different Cities: Are Our New Plays Being Locally Grown,” this panel discussion brings together artists and from other new play development organizations, located within and outside of Philadelphia, including Quinn D. Eli, Co-Founder of The Foundry (Philadelphia, PA), Lee Liebeskind, Producing Director at The Inkwell (Washington, DC), and Emily Morse, Director of New Play Development at New Dramatists (New York, NY.) PlayPenn’s Director of Education Programs, Sarah Mantell, will moderate. PlayPenn is an artist-driven organization dedicated to improving the way in which new plays are developed. Employing an ever-evolving process, PlayPenn creates a relaxed tension within which playwrights can engage in risk-taking, boundary-pushing work free from the pressures of commercial consideration. PlayPenn is made possible through the generous support of the Wyncote Foundation and other major funders including, among others, the William Penn Foundation, the Independence Foundation, the Dramatists Guild Fund, the Samuel S. Fels Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, The Shubert Foundation, and The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Theatre Initiative.

Tony Bennett: The Artistic Evolution of a Legend Continued from front page

At the age of 87, Tony Bennett remains warm, engaging, curious and appreciative of having the career he’s had, of still being at it, and still being recognized as a ground-breaker and contemporary force in the industry. I’d be fibbing if I reported that he remembered me, but by the end of our interview for ICON it seemed obvious to him that, shall we say, I was “one of the cats,” and he insisted upon making arrangements to get together with me personally after his July 26 gig at the Sands in Bethlehem, PA. I sensed that he wanted to talk, and wanted to talk about Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and all those he believes contributed to his art. Indeed, as we reached what was the “imposed” time limit of our conversation and I wanted to cut things short – a time limit I intended to respect – he said, with conviction, “No, that’s all right, man. I'm still goin’.” You’ve got to love him. BK (Bruce Klauber): You sound better now, in every way – in terms of technique, range, breath control – than you did in 1970, when I first heard you in person. TB (Tony Bennett): Thank you, that’s wonderful. I think one of the things you learn from being a seasoned performer is that you learn what do leave out, not “how much do you put in?” You want to simplify it. BK: Like Count Basie. TB: Right. Exactly. BK: You have to be, as an artist, your own worst or best critic. TB: Absolutely. BK: Let’s just take the past ten years. Tell me what you notice that’s different about your singing. TB: You know, it’s funny. This album that I did with Dave Brubeck from 1962 that was just released. Everybody’s raving about it and I forgot that I actually did it. Columbia found this thing that we recorded, when President Kennedy asked us to perform on the Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga White House Lawn. What Dave and I did together was completely spontaneous. It’s getting great reviews. It’s number one on Amazon.com and with Barnes and Noble. It’s a complete surprise. They’re calling it a great jazz album. So I listened to it and the way I was singing, and to me, I don’t think I sound better, but I think I sound the same now as I did 50 years ago, which is unusual, because I was able to sustain my voice and still keep it on good shape. BK: I’ve listened to this again and again. You cats are swinging.’ TB: Right. BK: What’s a drag is that Dave didn’t get to back up more cats such as yourself. This is an astounding discovery. Is there anyone through the years that you worked with – or maybe didn’t work with – that maybe you wanted to record with? In other words, is there another recorded discovery out there waiting to happen? TB: Well, I’m sure there’s going to be. In fact, next week I’m going into the recording studio to do a big jazz album with Lady Gaga. She’s more than good, she’s actually a terrific singer, and the songs we’ve chosen are really beautiful examples that show how good she really sings. Marion Evans, the great arranger, is doing the swingin’ charts. I think it’s going to surprise everybody that she’s just that good. She works hard and so professional. She walks in and has everything memorized. She’s really a very educated artist. She’s knows what she’s doing. BK: Do you think there’s a future for this music? TB: Yeah. Absolutely. But all of jazz has taken a back seat. For example, CBS just did four specials on country music. They’re raving about the ratings, and they’re saying that 65 percent of Americans love country music. And they said contemporary music is about 50 percent. And when they got to jazz, they gave it like 13 percent. You know, there’s still a lot of bigotry about jazz because jazz was invented by African Americans. There still are a lot of people – especially corporate people – who think that people just don’t like jazz. I think it’s a silly and bigoted attitude. Because when you think of it, Fred Astaire spent his whole life singing jazz. He introduced all of the greatest songs that they call the ‘Great

American Songbook.’ I call it the ‘Fred Astaire Songbook.’ Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin would not make a move unless Fred Astaire introduced their songs. You could hear him syncopating and improvising throughout his whole life. All his performances had a beat to it with unexpected moves. And different each time. It was really a jazz attitude. BK: You have done quite a bit for the cause jazz in your books and your interviews. You’ve let a wider audience know about the importance of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Basie and so on. If it were not for you, there would probably be about 11 million people who never heard of Bill Evans. What was it about Bill Evans that got to you and made you say, “I’ve got to record with this guy?” TB: He was behind Miles Davis and became very famous that way. I remember going into clubs so many times and hearing Bill Evans and Erroll Garner. There was just a handful of people there and they were playing beautifully. It takes a long time for that kind of thing to catch on, because it’s really the most honest and most intelligent music you can hear. Ralph Sharon, my accompanist of 40 years, said on a radio inter view, “I’m trying to learn how to play like Bill Evans.” Not only him, but every other piano player that I know of says they’re trying to learn how to play like Bill Evans. Years ago, it was all about Art Tatum. Every body wanted to play like Art Tatum. Bill Evans represents another concept and everybody wants to learn to play like Bill Evans. There’s an album he made where he played J.S. Bach with a symphony orchestra. I listened to it a lot, and all of a sudden I realized that he sounded better than the whole symphony. You could hear that. He was just a gen ius and a wonderful person. He re gretted his habit. He couldn’t stand the fact that he got hooked on narcotics. on this July’s issue of ICON. BK: You’ve spoken eloquently and extensively about Duke Ellington and how important he was to you personally and professionally. But I get the sense, even after reading many of the books written about him, that not a lot of us really knew the guy. I think you did. TB: He was a complete genius. He never stopped writing. Every night he composed, and the next day the band would play it at a rehearsal. The band was his sketch pad. An artist uses a sketch pad to plan a painting. That orchestra was his sketch pad. He was so different from anyone and so creative. For instance. Any other bandleader would hire saxophones, trumpets and trombones and a rhythm section. He would search for individual artists like Paul Gonsalves, Johnny Hodges. Everyone in the orchestra was an artist in his own right. They were completely different. Johnny Hodges just wasn’t another saxophone player. He was Johnny Hodges. And the same thing with Paul Gonsalves. Everyone in the band was special. He chose artists that were individuals who knew how to make things work. And that’s how Duke worked. He didn’t write for a saxophone player. He wrote for Johnny Hodges. He respected all his musicians very much. He taught me to do two things. He said, ‘Don’t do one thing, do two.’ And I had a passion for painting, but Duke turned me on to painting everyday, and I’ve been doing that for many years. And that came from Duke Ellington, and that was important to me, because music and art share the same premise and they feed one another. What you learn when you paint, you learn about music, and what you learn from music, you learn about painting. It’s funny how it worked for me. I’m very content with what I do. There’s a continuity going with the two mediums that I work with. And it’s a pleasure to keep learning that way. My ambition is to keep getting better as I get older, to swing it, and to prove that you don’t have to give up on life just because you’re getting old.

AAA Study Debunks Common Myth, Proves Hands-Free is Not Risk Free New distracted driving research reveals that voice-activated texting, calling and social media posting can dangerously undermine driver attention ands-free is still dangerous, says a new AAA study of voice-activated vehicle technology that allows motorists to text, talk on the phone, or use Facebook while they drive. Research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows risky mental distractions exist even when drivers keep their hands on the wheel. The study measured brainwaves, eye movement and more, showing drivers scan the road less and miss visual cues, sometimes not even seeing stop signs and pedestrians right in front of them. This is the most comprehensive study of its kind to look at distracted driving. With a predicted five-fold increase in infotainment systems in new vehicles by 2018, AAA is calling for action as result of this landmark research, and asks the public to not use these voice-totext features while their vehicle is in motion. “There is a looming public safety crisis ahead with the growth of these in-vehicle technologies,” said Jenny M. Robinson, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “It’s time to consider limiting potentially dangerous mental distractions built into cars. Hands-free is not risk-free, because your brain is still distracted.” Researchers rated levels of mental distraction drivers experienced while performing various tasks. Similar to the Saffir-Simpson scale used for hurricanes, the levels of mental distraction are represented on a scale. • LEVEL 1: Mild Danger. Tasks such as listening to the radio. • LEVEL 2: Moderate Danger. Talking on a cell phone, both handheld and hands-free. • LEVEL 3: High Danger. Listening and responding to in-vehicle, voice-activated email and social networking. These activities greatly increased mental distraction levels. Cognitive distraction expert Dr. David Strayer and his research team at the University of Utah measured brainwaves, eye movement and other metrics to assess what happens to drivers’ mental workload when they attempt to do multiple things at once, building upon decades of research in the aerospace and automotive industries. The research included: • Cameras mounted inside an instrumented car to track eye and head movement of drivers. • A Detection-Response-Task device known as the “DRT” was used to record driver reaction time in response to triggers of red and green lights added to their field of vision. • A special electroencephalographic (EEG)-configured skull cap was used to chart participants’ brain activity so that researchers could determine mental workload. Using established research protocols borrowed from aviation psychology and a variety of performance metrics, drivers engaged in common tasks, from listening to an audio book or talking on the phone to listening and responding to voice-activated emails while behind the wheel. “These findings reinforce previous research that hands-free is not risk-free,” said Robinson. “Increased mental workload and cognitive distractions can lead to a type of tunnel vision or inattention blindness where motorists don’t see potential hazards right in front of them.” Based on this research, AAA urges the automotive and electronics industries to join in

exploring: • Limiting use of voice-activated technology to core driving-related activities such as climate control, windshield wipers and cruise control, and to ensure these applications do not lead to increased safety risk due to mental distraction while the car is moving. • Disabling certain functionalities of voice-to-text technologies such as using social media or interacting with e-mail and text messages so that they are inoperable while the vehicle is in motion. • Educating vehicle owners and mobile device users about the responsible use and safety risks for in-vehicle technologies. AAA also is using the findings to promote dialogue with policy makers, safety advocates and industry to ensure that these emerging in-vehicle technologies won’t lead to unintentional compromises in public safety. As part of this effort, AAA has already met with safety advocates and provided copies of the report to CEOs of all major U.S. automakers. “AAA is hopeful this research will serve as a stepping stone toward working in collaboration with automakers to promote our shared goal of improving safety for all drivers,” said Robinson. “Specifically, these increasingly common voice-driven, in-vehicle technologies should be limited to use for just core driving tasks unless the activity results in no significant driver distraction.” To view the full Cognitive Distraction in the Vehicle report, the AAA Foundation’s Research Compendium on Cognitive Distraction or AAA’s Distracted Driving Fact Sheet, visit NewsRoom.AAA.com. Locally, Pennsylvania’s law against texting while driving took effect March 8, 2012 and is a primary offense with a $50 fine. AAA has long been at the forefront of the distracted driving issue, with a national campaign to pass texting bans in all 50 states. Pennsylvania crash statistics show a small decline in distracted driving fatalities for 2012. According to preliminary numbers from the state, there were 57 deaths in distracted driver crashes last year, compared to 59 deaths in 2011 and 66 fatalities in 2010. Established by AAA in 1947, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is a 501(c) (3) not-forprofit, publicly-supported charitable educational and research organization. Dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads, the Foundation’s mission is to prevent crashes and save lives through research and education about traffic safety. The Foundation has funded over 200 research projects designed to discover the causes of traffic crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. Visit www.aaafoundation.org for more information on this and other research. AAA Mid-Atlantic serves nearly 700,000 members in the Philadelphia (5-county) region and nearly four million members in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, with personal insurance, financial, automotive and travel services through 53 retail branches, regional operations centers and the internet, at www.aaa.com/community.

F REE L EGAL A DVICE O FFERED J ULY 17 Philadelphia Bar Association will offer free legal advice he Philadelphia Bar Association will offer free legal advice to residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties on Wednesday, July 17, between 5 and 8 p.m. Members of the public can access the service by calling the Association’s LegalLine P.M. hotline at 215-2386333. The July 17 LegalLine P.M. is sponsored by the Business Law Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association. Area residents seeking confidential legal advice will be able to speak for free with a volunteer attorney from the Philadelphia Bar Association. Attorneys are available to offer information about business law or any other aspect of the law including family law, landlord-tenant, workers’ compensation and employment law, among other topics. LegalLine P.M. is a public service sponsored by the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association, providing residents with free, quick and accurate legal advice during convenient evening hours. LegalLine P.M. is offered on the third Wednesday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m. The program has existed for nearly 20 years, allowing volunteer attorneys to help thousands of callers through direct service or by referring them to an appropriate source. In addition, during regular work hours, the Philadelphia Bar Association offers another program – the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) – which provides lawyer referrals to area residents. Staff attorneys take calls from the general public and refer callers to attorneys in private practice for a 30-minute consultation, for which the attorney agrees to charge a drastically reduced fee of $30. If callers do not need an attorney or cannot afford one, they will be directed to a legal service organization, agency or other resource for assistance. LRIS is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., by calling 215-238-6333.
