All of the stories in Ladies and Gentlemen are infused with tangential tales that reflect the chaos of living. All make unexpected detours and become all the more satisfying for that. Even more, all demonstrate what a commanding, fearless writer Adam Ross is. Steven Whitton is a professor of English at Jacksonville State University.

Roger Sherman of Connecticut was a cobbler, a lawyer and a state senator who signed four major documents of American history: the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the

Articles of Association and the Constitution. He came up with the “Great Compromise” — “there would be two houses, one in which representation was based on population and the other fixed, providing equal representation for every state no matter its size.” This led to the House of Representatives and the Senate. After the Constitution was signed came the hard work. Each delegate went back home and turned salesman. Delaware — known as “The First State” — was the first to ratify the Constitution. Kiernan and D’Agnese, who also wrote Signing their Lives Away: The Fame and Misfortune of the Men who signed the Declaration of Independence, have provided another volume that should appeal to all political and history buffs.

Richard Adams to present historical fiction work Erin Williams Special to The Star

Richard Adams knows what it means to pledge allegiance to your country. The Texas native graduated from West Point in 1967 and served in Vietnam as an artillery forward observer for Company D, 1/506th Infantry, 101st Airborne. He continued his flying career as an Army aviator with the Army Corps of Engineers. After an honorable discharge from the Army in 1974, he continued to work as an engineer, later creating his own company. Now retired, the veteran tried his hand at writing and produced the historical fiction work The Parting: A Story of West Point on the Eve of the Civil War. The main character, Confederate Lt. John Pelham, was an actual Confederate officer from Jacksonville, and through Adams’ texts, we follow his journey from young West Point grad to a military fighter, and witness the rebirth of a nation. In this interview, the author discusses his thoughts on friends turning into war enemies, his affinity for Pelham, and the importance of continuing a legacy. Adams will be in Anniston to present his book at 2 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Anniston Public Library. For more information, visit anniston.lib.al.us. For more information on Adams, visit richardbarlowadams.com Q: You are a West Point graduate and military veteran. What made you decide to take a foray into writing? A: Wanting to write something of lasting value was my incentive, and while a military veteran and for many years a consulting engineer who has

Special to The Star

Richard Adams, author of ‘The Parting: A Story of West Point on the Eve of the Civil War,’ will present his book Sept. 27 at the Anniston Public Library. written hundreds of technical reports and documents, I wanted to leave a legacy for West Point and for those who embrace our country’s history. And being a former cadet, combat veteran, Civil War buff, and long-time avid West Point alumnus, I determined that The Parting was the story I should tell. Q: Tell me about the research that you did on this book. Was there anything that you came across that surprised you about the era? A: As to the latter, I suppose I was most intrigued and moved by the little-known relationships between persons who later would face each other in the Civil War. As to my research, I reviewed many West Point and Civil War-related references

and writings, made several trips to the West Point Library (Department of Collections and Archives), and interacted with Mary Elizabeth (Mary Betty) Sergent, the author, now deceased, who so completely captured the West Point classes of May and June 1861 in her two nonfictional works (They Lie Forgotten and A Remaining Glory), and the growing up years of John Pelham in her novelette, Growing Up in Alabama — she was, to say the least, infatuated with John Pelham. The archived materials I reviewed included Academy records, Mary Betty’s notes donated to the West Point Library, and letters from cadets featured in the story and their later commentaries about those who fought in the war, especially those who

fought “on the other side.” Having been a cadet, it was also great fun to review the demerit records of certain story characters. Additionally, I reviewed descriptive materials, reports and maps that defined the physical layout and structures of old West Point, the military and academic regimens in place, and the key events of the time. Digging into facts about the legendary tavern keeper and friend of cadets, Benny Havens, was also a key aspect of my research, as was my review of various accounts of the First Battle of Manassas (Bull Run). Q: Are there certain elements of John Pelham that are a direct reflection of you and your military journey? A: I can’t imagine that any graduate of West Point, including myself, wouldn’t want to see as much of John Pelham in themselves as possible. The man was incredible and beloved. I can say that I shared some of his Academy “experiences,” and I certainly endeavored to be the best officer I could be. Q: During that time, what went into deciding one’s allegiance over which side they were fighting for, and how difficult was it to be pitted against someone you once called a friend, who was now your number one enemy? A: To be honest and candid, I believe allegiance was simply and naturally defined by the geographical location of family and home, and what home represented … as I believe it would be today, were we forced to make a decision. That said, I believe that once the gauntlet was thrown, there was no choice but that best friends on opposing sides had to consider old friends new

enemies. After the war, of course, many broken friendships were healed within the West Point family. Q: It’s very interesting that you chose to have your cadet based in Calhoun County (but what a great choice!). What made you choose Alabama? A: I must credit Mary Betty, whose writings (along with those of others) made it clear that John Pelham stood “tallest.” He was the most popular man in his West Point class and the “beau ideal” of the South. Q: With 2011 being the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, there have been several historically based texts created in its name. Is there anything that you come across that you feel has been misunderstood about the battle? A: The causes of the war will be forever debated — states’ rights versus slavery versus …, but the reality of the time is that the country was irrevocably divided.

In the minds of Southerners, they lived, believe and thought differently than the balance of the country, and were willing to go to the “cliff” for the union of like-minded states. Q: What do you feel is the most important takeaway from your novel? A: That human history often takes violent, heartbreaking turns that change forever the lives of those who live it, but that men and women of character will rise in such circumstances and act in ways noble and glorious. Q: Do you plan to write more now that the book has been published, or what else is on your agenda? A: Yes, and I hope readers will be excited to know that I am well along with three other stories. Erin Williams is a graduate of Faith Christian School and the University of Alabama. She is a performing arts aide for the Washington Post Style section.

‘America’s Got Talent’ winner has local ties By Brett Buckner Special to The Star

Around Logan, W.Va., everybody knew him simply as “Doonie,” a local musician who worked fulltime at a car wash to make ends meet. But a star turn on America’s Got Talent has changed “Doonie” into an overnight sensation after 36 years. Now he’s become a household name who’s known by another name — Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Last week, Murphy was the $1 million winner on America’s Got Talent, having wowed the panel of judges, not to mention television audiences around the country, with his pitchperfect rendition of Frank Sinatra standards. And yet for all the fame and fortune sure to come his way, for one close friend, he’ll always be known as “Doonie.” Bob Noone, who now lives in Crystal Springs, is a native of Logan, W. Va., and has watched Murphy’s meteoric rise. “It couldn’t have happened to a better, nicer guy,” said Noone, who, along with his wife, was in Los Angeles to see Murphy in the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent. “Things happen the way they do for a reason. I consider myself fortunate to be his friend. He’s got a bright future and deserves all that’s coming to him.” Noone has performed with Murphy numerous times. He is also a member of First Presbyterian Church in Anniston, where he has invited Murphy to perform on a couple of occasions, the most recent last summer. After telling Murphy about the history of the church, which once gave shelter to those along the Underground Railroad, and taking him to the site of the infamous bus burning, where Freedom Riders were attacked in 1961, the two performed a “mash-up” combining “Joyful, Joyful” with Curtis Mayfield’s Civil Rights anthem, “People Get Ready.” “It was something special,” Noone remembered with a laugh. “I’m not sure if anybody there knew exactly what to think.” And that goes largely for anyone who’s seen Murphy perform, which is why he’s earned the unofficial moniker of “the black Frank Sina-

Landau Murphy Jr. and Bob Noone perform together at a fundraiser to send foster kids to summer camp in West Virginia, May 13, 2011. Murphy, who won NBC’s talent competition last week, has peformed at the First Presbyterian Church in Anniston in the past.

But the look — with the jeans and the dreadlocks — just doesn’t match the voice, which is something that Noone has witnessed firsthand. In addition to being a practicing lawyer, Noone is also a well-known musician who performs regularly with several bands — namely The Well-Hung Jury — in and around Logan, where he keeps a law office. In 2005, he was serving as emcee for a fundraiser to help send foster kids to summer camp. The event, featuring all sorts of singing and dancing, was at the Coalfield Jamboree Theatre, which seats about 1,200. That night, the theatre was packed. During sound check, Noone first heard Murphy, who was planning to sing “My Girl” with a CD-backing, karaoke-style, but what Noone heard was too good to waste and invited Murphy instead to sing live with the house band. It would be the begin-

ning of lasting relationship — both personally and professionally. “I was absolutely floored,” Noone said. “When this guy, with the dreadlocks, walked up, everybody was expecting some soul or R&B, but he breaks into ‘Fly Me to the Moon,’ and jaws dropped.” But Murphy’s vocal talents go beyond being “the black Frank Sinatra,” Noone said. And given the yearlong headlining contract to perform in Las Vegas that is part of his winnings, people will get to see just how good he is. “The ‘America’ in America’s Got Talent hasn’t seen the real Landau Murphy do his thing,” Noone said. “From Motown and James Brown to hoe-down, he can do and sing it all. He even does a great Michael Jackson. The world won’t soon forget Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. But we’ll always know him as Doonie.” Contact Brett Buckner at brettbuckner@ymail.com.

Hugh Laurie sings the blues on new album Chris Pizzello/Associated Press

Actor Hugh Laurie arrives at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. Laurie is active as both an actor on the series ‘House’ and as a musician.

By Alicia Rancilio Associated Press

Hugh Laurie has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for an Emmy for his starring role on House. But those accolades didn’t do much to boost his confidence when he started recording his very first album, Let Them Talk — he says he was “absolutely terrified.” The album is steeped in New Orleans blues, and Laurie sings, plays piano and guitar on classic tunes. Let Them Talk debuted in the United Kingdom at No. 2 last spring and was released in the United States this month. The 52-year-old Laurie talked about the record’s success so far and being a Brit playing the blues during a recent interview with The Associated Press. AP: Did the success of your album in England make you feel more confident about releasing it in the United States? Laurie: I suppose so, yes, because you worry about your own family, don’t you? You worry about what your family thinks before anyone else, and whatever triumphs big or small you might have in the outside world, if your mum says it’s rubbish, that’s always going to (bother you). AP: Did you ever consider releasing the album

under a different name? Laurie: I did once upon a time write a novel and I wrote it under another name and submitted it under another name and wanted to publish it under another name, but was talked out of it by a publisher who actually started banging his head on the desk. ... He said, ‘If you knew how hard it is to get people’s attention in the publishing world,’ and I don’t think the musical world is anything different. This is not a world for shrinking violets. ... I want this to be honest. I want it to be open and I want to declare myself and if people want to throw rotten fruit, they can. AP: What’s it like performing it live? Laurie: Live music seems to be growing and growing. It’s as if people really more than ever seem to hunger for that actual communication. If you’d asked me a year ago, I’d say I’d go to any lengths to avoid the terror of that confrontation. But, I’ve really got a taste for it now. I’m not saying I know how to do it. I absolutely don’t. I’ve really got a taste for it. I’ve had a fantastic time. AP: The album really pays homage to this type of music. Laurie: I wasn’t born immersed in this music. I’ve immersed myself throughout my whole life, but that still doesn’t really count, you know, when you’re having

a green card interview; that doesn’t really count to say I’ve listened to a lot of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins records — that question didn’t come up. But, I’m approaching the source of this music that I’ve loved all my life and I do so with trepidation and a lot of respect. I hope people will believe and understand I’m not being cavalier about it. This is not a casual thing for me at all. This is more important than almost anything I’ve ever done. AP: How will House be different without cast member Lisa Edelstein? Laurie: It’s a huge loss, but at the same time when something like that happens, it actually gives a strange sort of jolt of energy to the thing. When people are forced into that slightly panicky moment of innovation. ... Sometimes (you) get that burst of energy that might take you down an interesting path. I think we have done some very good stuff, I must say, that’s really interesting. AP: Would you like to do more recording? Laurie: More recording, more touring, more just sitting in a studio with these musicians and noodling with a guitar. This music thing is hard to beat. If I have the chance, if I’m lucky enough to be given the chance to continue and build on (this), I would seize that with both hands, because that really is a thrilling pleasure for me.

Bennett reaches out to a new generation By Charles J. Gans Associated Press

Tony Bennett, Duets II (RPM/ Columbia Records)

Tony Bennett is as timeless as the songs he sings on Duets II, which should put him back on the charts for a remarkable seventh straight decade. His 2006 Grammy-winning Duets: An American Classic was weighted toward baby boomer superstars (Barbra Streisand, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder), but its sequel finds him reaching out to a new generation of singers: Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood, John Mayer and Amy Winehouse in her last studio recording, with more moments of spontaneity. Bennett wisely does not treat the Great American Songbook as a museum piece, which serves him well on the opening duet with a flirtatious

Gaga on the Rodgers and Hart tune “The Lady Is a Tramp,” with a brassy big band swing arrangement. Bennett chuckles as a sassy Gaga alters the lyrics (“This chick is a tramp”), affects a Brooklyn accent, throws in updated references to the Yankees, and even scats briefly, but in the end she leaves no doubt about her impressive vocal chops. The mood turns somber on “Body and Soul,” a poignant ballad Winehouse recorded with Bennett in London just four months before her death. The soul revivalist reveals her roots as a jazz singer influenced by Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington, her warm voice expressing pain mixed with beauty as she glides through and

stretches her lines. The success of Duets II is due in part to Bennett’s insistence on doing each of the 17 tracks live in the studio with his partner rather than by exchanging digital files, making the performances more intimate and spontaneous. At 85, Bennett remains a hip role model able to bring out the best in his colleagues without compromising his standards. CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: On “Body and Soul,” Winehouse delivers a heartfelt, uncompromisingly honest performance as she sings lyrics from 1930 that speak to the sadness in her life (“My life’s a wreck, you’re making”), a touching reminder of a gifted talent gone too soon.

Amos gets classically inspired for new CD By Karen Hawkins

There are clear classical, even operatic influences, from sweeping strings and reedy woodwinds to back Amos’ gripping Tori Amos, Night of Hunters piano . It’s a beautifully (Deutsche Grammophon) composed album that Tori Amos has established herself as an unmistakable musical presence highlights Amos’ classical training and her fierce with a distinctive voice, her powerful piano playing and a penchant for lyrics intensity as a musician and songwriter. that can be a bit, well, confounding.

tionship. The album allows the listener to “follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter,” Amos says. It is heady stuff, and the complicated narrative probably will elude those uninitiated in Amos-speak. CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: It is an unexpected treat to hear gently lilting youthful voices weave in and out of tracks like “Snowblind,” courtesy of Amos’ daughter and niece.

Strong set from reunited Jayhawks By Steven Wine Associated Press

The Jayhawks, Mockingbird Time (Rounder) The past tugs at the Jayhawks on Mockingbird Time, perhaps because it’s the first full-band studio release since 1995 to fea-

ture both founding members, Gary Louris and Mark Olson. While Louris and Olson mostly sing in harmony, the album is dominated by moments of solitude, with the outdoors

the sole companion. The passage of the years is measured via affectionate references to rain, wind, grass, sky, clouds, lightning, sunshine, rivers, hills, desert and songbirds

— Mockingbird Time. One conclusion reached is that it’s good to reconnect with old friends. This album allows fans of the Jayhawks to do just that. CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: “Hey Mr. Man” is Henry David Thoreau with power chords.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium senior marine mammal trainer Abby Stone works with Winter the dolphin in Clearwater, Fla.

‘Dolphin Tale’ tugs on heartstrings and inspires By Roger Moore The Orlando Sentinel

The story of how Winter, a New Smyrna Beach, Fla., dolphin, lost her tail and became the star attraction of the Clearwater Aquarium becomes an adorable kids’ film in Dolphin Tale. No, this isn’t how it really happened. But director Charles Martin Smith (Air Bud) wrings plenty of heartfelt tears and a few laughs out of this fictionalized account of how humans helped a dolphin survive a near-fatal injury, and how that dolphin became an inspiration to others. Nathan Gamble stars as Saw-

Sawyer, a social outcast who is struggling in school, finds new purpose in saving this animal. Cozi Zuehlsdorff is Hazel, the girl who comes with her marine veterinarian dad (Harry Connick Jr.) and a crew from the nearby marine hospital to pick up Winter, as they call her, and try to save her. Sawyer fibs to his mom (Ashley Judd) and plays hooky from school to stay with Winter, who bonds with the boy who cut ropes

‘Moneyball’ doesn’t knock it out of the park By Christy Lemire Associated Press

You don’t have to know about VORP — or WHIP, or OPS — to enjoy Moneyball, the story of how a bunch of stat geeks changed the way baseball teams assess and acquire players. Sure, it helps if you’re a fan of the sport and if you’ve read Michael Lewis’ breezy and engaging bestseller Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game. Sabermetrics — the process of applying statistical formulas, rather than on-field appearance and general makeup, to determine a player’s worth — wouldn’t seem like an inherently cinematic topic. But Lewis made lesser-known guys like Scott Hatteberg and Chad Bradford leap off the page. And the cajoling patter from Billy Beane, the Oakland A’s general manager who pioneered this experimental philosophy, would seem tailor-made for screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who co-wrote the script along with fellow veteran scribe Steven Zaillian. Still, what’s most pleasing about the film doesn’t really have to do with baseball. As Beane, Brad Pitt is at his charismatic best — a little weary, a little weathered, but that complexity only makes him more appealing. He’s persistent and persuasive as he tries to change the mindset of the baseball lifers who surround him. We see him rage in his infamously volatile fashion when things go wrong, but we also see him make himself vulnerable: He’s embracing this approach as a result of his own failure. Tall, good-looking and naturally athletic — a five-tool guy, as they say — Beane was a highly-touted high school prospect who turned down a scholarship to Stanford to play for the New York Mets. But his professional career was brief, and he never lived up to the hype. This inspired him to value players for more pragmatic reasons than the traditional methods old-school scouts use. The most important thing, he reasoned, is getting on base. And some of the players who get on base most often happen to be undervalued, perhaps older or a little banged-up, and they come at bargain prices — which is crucial when you’ve got a fraction of the payroll of big-market teams.

Brad Pitt, left, and Jonah Hill are shown in a scene from ‘Moneyball.’ As he ventures into this brave new world at the start of the 2002 season, having lost in agonizing fashion to the New York Yankees in the 2001 postseason, his trusty sidekick is Peter Brand, a 25-year-old Yale economics graduate and follower of sabermetrics guru Bill James. (The character is an amalgamation of several young, upand-coming baseball executives who subscribed to this belief ). Jonah Hill is at his best here, too, as Brand: the perfect foil for a force of nature like Beane. Halting and almost humorless, Hill ultimately finds the quiet confidence in this character, and he and Pitt bounce off each other beautifully. The scenes in which they banter represent the best Moneyball has to offer. Similarly, though, the things that are wrong with the movie have nothing to do with baseball, either. Insiders and hardcore fans will probably find reasons to nitpick, as is their wont; if there’s a group of people more obsessed with details and arcania than movie nerds, it’s baseball nerds. But more fundamentally, there’s a problem with the pacing in director Bennett Miller’s film. Miller’s feature debut was Capote, which earned Philip Seymour Hoffman a best-actor Oscar (and Hoffman shows up here in a barely developed

role as A’s manager Art Howe, who bucks Beane at every opportunity). As rich a character study as Capote was, it also offered suspense as it traced the author’s rise and fall. Moneyball never feels like it’s building toward anything, even if you know how the A’s season unfolded that year. It plays out in starts and stops, and then all of a sudden, we’re in the midst of the team’s historic 20-game win streak. A subplot involving Beane’s daughter, which wasn’t part of the book, also seems like a wedged-in device to humanize him. And ultimately it seems odd to romanticize this figure who sought to strip the sport of its long-held romanticism. But like the A’s themselves at this time, Moneyball has enough unlikely pieces that do work — and it generates enough underdog goodwill — to make you want to stick around for the final out.

Lautner debuts leading role in ‘Abduction’

ABDUCTION HH

rating: PG-13 for sequences of intense violence and action, brief language, some sexual content and teen partying Running time: 1:46 Starring: Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Michael Nyqvist, Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs By Roger Moore The Orlando Sentinel

Open Road Films/Associated Press

Robert De Niro , left, and Jason Statham are shown in a scene from ‘Killer Elite.’

Old school f lair in‘Killer Elite’ By Roger Moore The Orlando Sentinel

Killer Elite is a guy’s movie and makes no bones about it. It’s an oldschool straight-no-chaser action picture about an ex-CIA agent who hunts down assorted troopers from the British Special Forces to save an American agent from a vengeful Arab. The film’s hook is that it pits Jason Statham against Clive Owen, the two marquee names among the current generation of British action stars. Statham plays Danny, an ex-CIA assassin blackmailed out of retirement to hunt down Spike (Owen) and his British Special Forces (SAS) colleagues in as payback for a mission they took part in long ago. Robert De Niro is Hunter, who used to be Danny’s boss. He’s being held hostage by an Arab sheik intent on revenge. That sends Danny hither and yon, rounding up his own “team,” trying to take out guys nicknamed “The Clinic,” men who are just as lethal as he is. Danny and his crew must make the murders look like accidents, so there will be no reprisals. Standard killer-for-hire stuff, in other words.

Danny (Yvonne Strahovski) and other distractions. But he handles the assorted “hits” with gritty, period rating: R for strong violence, flare. The film is “based on a true language and some sexuality/nustory,” so the setting is the early ‘80s dity — a “time of crisis, revolution.” That Running time: 1:45 makes it something of a parable for Starring: Jason Statham, Clive our times, men sent to do a dirty job Owen, Robert De Niro, Dominic for their government, only to have Purcell their government back the other side, years later.

KILLER ELITE HH1/2

Twilight alumnus Taylor Lautner makes his debut as a leading man in an action film tailor-made — ahem — for him. Abduction puts Lautner in motion and never goes very far wrong as long as he remains in motion. The buff teen werewolf of Twilight plays a young man who has his world upended and finds himself on the run when enemy agents attack his home and the people he knew as his parents aren’t who they say they are. In the opening minutes, we meet Nathan (Lautner), a studly wrestler in high school, constantly tested by his strict and martial dad (Jason Isaacs), nurtured by his more understanding mom (Maria Bello). If only they knew how he “surfed” on the hood of a pal’s pickup truck, how he gets blotto at teen beer busts. Dad finds out and punishes the kid with more mixed martial arts training. But a class project with his elusive, unavailable neighbor (Lily Collins, eyebrows to die for) sends them to a missing-children website. That’s where they find a toddler photo of Nathan, reported as “missing.” And in asking about that, the teens trigger an explosion of revelations about Nathan’s past and a desperate escape that sends them on the lam, with no idea of who is after them or who they can trust. Director John Singleton is more concerned with the fights and chases than the human interplay between his two attractive young leads. Collins, daughter of singer Phil and the future Snow White, manages moments of pathos. But the script and Singleton see to it that Molina’s performance delivers a light touch, and the younger players never let us lose the sense that we’re dealing with young people who don’t know how to process all this information that’s been thrown at them. With a plot that most adults will stay a step or two ahead of, Abduction isn’t going to challenge anybody who has seen more than one “on the lam” picture. But Lautner as action hero doesn’t embarrass himself, not by a long shot. He may not play the tender moments like an old pro. But then, neither have Arnold, Sly or Jason Statham.

THE play’s the thing LOCAL THEATER 2011– 2012 SEASON

By Erin Williams Special to The Star

Like Hamlet said, the play is the thing ... at least it is around Calhoun County. Lcoal theater companies are gearing up for the 2011-12 season, and while the likes of Hamlet won’t come around here, Shakespeare is, with Jacksonville State University’s production of Much Ado About Nothing in November. Want to get out to the theater sooner than that? CAST’s season opener, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, has its final performances this weekend, and the Ritz Theater in Talladega will present Civil War Voices in early October. From comedy to tragedy, musicals to children’s stories, upcoming local theater productions will have something for just about anyone.

JACKSONVILLE STATE UNIVERSITY DRAMA All JSU performances are staged at the Ernest Stone Performing Arts Center on the corner of 11th Street and Church Avenue in Jacksonville.

Two down-and-out male English Shakespearean actors aim to turn their luck around by posing as the long lost relatives of an elderly woman in order to collect her fortune. $10. Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, Nov. 17-20.

Rent by Jonathan Larson, Feb. 16-19 and 2426, 2012. The classic modern-day rock opera based on La Boheme, set against the backdrop of ‘80s New York in a time of song and survival. $15.

The Syringa Tree by Pamela Gien, April 1215, 2012.

Snoopy!!! by Charles Schultz, May 9-13, 2012. The Peanuts gang comes to life in the sequel to You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. $15. Dead Towns of Alabama by Barry Bradford, June 20-24, 2012.

Alec Baldwin is on a sugar-free high By Yvonne Villarreal Los Angeles Times

Alec Baldwin, 53, might just be NBC’s hardest-working employee: He appears in his Emmy-winning role as network executive Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock and is gearing up for another stint as host on Saturday Night Live next weekend for a record-setting 16th time. Q: When you hosted Saturday Night Live in 1994, you said you could do it with your eyes closed. Does that remain true today? A: SNL and I are like a well-oiled machine. I find the one issue is to save your energy. It’s an intense week of prep. By Saturday night at 11:30 I want to say, “Can I just lie down and you can start without me?” But they throw cold water on me and slap me across the face. Q: You recently said you gave up sugar. Where’s all that energy going to come from? A: When you climb the Himalayas, you can’t pack your backpack full of Twinkies now, can you? This is my 16th climb on the comedy Kilimanjaro, and I will have no Twinkies in my backpack this time. Every time I do it, I say to myself, “is this it?” I want to make sure, if this is my last one, that it’s going to be good. Q: It can’t be the last one! What if Steve (Martin, who has hosted many times) takes your title? A: Steve is what — about 20 years older than I am, isn’t he? I’m 53, so Steve is almost 80. I think I have the edge in terms of the clock. Q: And he doesn’t have an ice cream flavor to brag about. (Ben and Jerry’s recently launched Schweddy Balls, a flavor named after a Baldwin SNL skit.)

I’ve done (30 Rock) for six years and SNL. Q: Do you think that’s possible? I actually started my career (there) doing When you go into public office, you’ve got A: I think it is possible.

It’s not like I’ve spent the last 20 years on a yacht with Richard Branson, drinking and tanning. Q: I wonder who would play you on an SNL skit if you did make it to office. A: Oh, God. Jason Sudeikis would just bury me. Sudeikis alone — with one sketch — could kill my entire political career.

Q: You’ve mentioned in previous interviews that while you love acting, you want a different life at some point. A: I am doing the show for one more year. When that’s over, I want to give myself a period of time to really just think about what I want to do. ‘Cause everything has been so predetermined. I had a six-year contract with the show. When I think about the future, sometimes the process is not just A, B or C. I’m allowing for a D, which is “who knows?” I know that acting and being in the public ... and having what you do be judged all the time is something I don’t see myself doing for a lifetime. The acting is fun — it’s everything around it that’s a lot less fun. All the things that come with having a public life have become a lot more precarious. Q: You’re quite talkative on Twitter. Are you more open to putting yourself out there when you’re sort of in control? A: Twitter is divided into three things: 1) People who say, “could you acknowledge me?” It’s a constant cry for shoutouts. I don’t have time for that. 2) People who pass information on to me. I might learn something from them. 3) You dialin to this party line and chat with people. And to a degree, I don’t know how you do that without sort of being like them by talking about who you are. Q: You recently tweeted that life is “new and exciting.” What did you mean? A: I’ve lived on the Upper West Side for 25 years, and I’ve lived in the same building for 20 years. I’m getting ready to move downtown. I’m moving closer to NYU, where I’m on the board of the Tisch School, and I’m looking forward to getting more involved — teaching classes. And I’m looking forward to living with somebody for the first time since I was divorced. I don’t know what’s going to happen a year from now ... I’m looking forward to what’s around the corner.

Pop culture Q&A

Many cable favorites will return

TV CROSSWORD

By Rich Heldenfels Akron Beacon Journal

The arrival of the new broadcast network shows has people wondering if their favorites are back. Q: Concerning returning shows, do you have any information concerning the following shows: Suits, Against the Wall, Memphis Beat, The Glades, Franklin & Bash, In Plain Sight, Chicago Code, Human Target, Working Class, Retired at 35, Royal Pains and Fairly Legal? A: Gee, only 12 shows? And interesting that 10 of them are or were on cable. Well, here’s what I know. Chicago Code, Human Target and Working Class are done. Suits, Franklin & Bash, Retired at 35, Royal Pains and Fairly Legal are all due back, although not until 2012 in some cases. In Plain Sight will also be back, in 2012, for what will be its final season. Reps for TNT and Lifetime said there’s no word yet on Memphis Beat and Against the Wall respectively, although some published reports indicate things are shaky for both shows. The Glades seemed to do well for A&E but at this writing there’s no decision on its return. Q: I used to watch The

USA Network/Associated Press

Wilmer Valderrama as Eric Kasabian, Paulo Costanzo as Evan Lawson and Mark Feuerstein as Hank Lawson on the set of ‘Royal Pains.’ Little Couple on TLC channel on Tuesday nights and suddenly it wasn’t on anymore. I really loved this show and am wondering if it’s coming back? A: The show’s Facebook page says it will return on Sept. 27. Q: Whatever happened to that new series The Defenders, about two attorneys in Las Vegas? One of the attorneys was John Belushi. My husband and I don’t watch a lot of television but we always looked forward to this one (and Modern Family, The Good Wife and The Middle). And

Harry’s Law — we liked that one, too — what happened to it? A: The Defenders — which co-starred Jim Belushi, not John — is done. Harry’s Law began its second season on Wednesday. Q: Our Miami Herald recently had an article, “Debut Dates for Returning Series.” I was shocked to find Brothers and Sisters not on this list! That was one of the best shows out there! What happened to it? A: ABC canceled it in May, and the recent DVD release of the fifth season made clear it was the finale one. The Hollywood Reporter said that it no longer had the buzz or ratings of earlier seasons. The publication further noted that the show was getting old — even one of the actors said the storylines had been stretched almost to the breaking point — and expensive, with a cast full of well-known players. Q: There was a TV show on sometime in the 90s called 7 in America, narrated by Meryl Streep. It was based on a British show that returned every 7

years to document the lives of the children it initially reported on. I believe the British show last recorded them when they were 40 years old. The American show was to return when the children were 14 and then every 7 years thereafter. Was there a follow-up show? I longed to see how the children were at 14 years old. As far as I know; it was never aired on TV. WHY? A: Age 7 in America, narrated by Streep and directed by Phil Joanou, aired in 1991 on ABC. A sequel, 14 Up in America, directed and narrated by Joanou, appeared in 1998 on Showtime. 21 Up America, with Christopher Dillon Quinn directing, appeared in 2006 on Discovery. I did find Age 7 on Vimeo. com and 21 Up. One of the filmmakers said he was one of the children in the American “Ups” and posted about his experiences. “As DOWN 1.
