On the Edge of the Weekend

May 30, 2013

People St. Louis favorite takes a trip to the moon By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Circus Flora blasts off to the moon for its 27th production with a show inspired by the visual genius of iconic filmmaker Georges Méliès and filled with new acts, new faces and old favorites. The show is open now and runs through June 23 under the big top next to Powell Hall in Grand Center. This year’s Circus Flora production is based on Méliès’ classic film, “A Trip to the Moon.” “It’s a different aesthetic than what we’ve done before. We’re going to the moon and using his sci-fi from 1902 imagery of what the moon might look like. It’s a different place than we’ve been before so we’re excited to try new things in that way and what Méliès did. He just had such a funny, quirky view of what the moon might be,” said Jack Marsh, Circus Flora’s new associate artistic director. Marsh took on the role of associate artistic director in December, 2012. He will study under Ivor David Balding, co-founder, producer and artistic director of Circus Flora, for the next three years before taking over for Balding in 2016. French-born Méliès, an illusionist and magician by training, used his theatrical background to create groundbreaking films about fantastical worlds and strange creatures. He pioneered special effects like stop-motion photography, dissolves, multiple exposures and hand-painted color. Méliès also featured, in part, as the inspiration for the 2011 Academy Awardnominated film, “Hugo,” directed by Martin Scorsese. Marsh said the Circus Flora design team drew inspiration from Méliès’ “To the Moon” film to create the costumes, lighting and scenic design for this year’s show. The Circus Flora team also used the plot of the film as the

The Flying Pages return this year with an all-female flying trapeze act never before seen in St. Louis. “I’m looking forward to seeing what these women will do flying through the air. It’s just such a fast-paced and strong act,” said Marsh. “International Man of Mirth” Rob Torres is a new face this year. Torres has worked for many European circuses and now brings his comedy act to St. Louis.

Annual favorites return again this year such as Johnny Peers & the Muttville Comix, star equestrian Lisa Dufresne, Carlos Svenson and his Magical Flying Goats, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the St. Louis Arches, The Flying Wallendas and the Circus Flora band led by Janine Del’Arte. Also taking center stage are, Mad Scientist (and juggler) Kellin Quinn, and aerial performers Andrew Adams and Helena Reynolds. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now. Discounts are available for groups of 20 or

more. Show times are at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; at 1 and 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 1 and 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Circus Flora soars to the moon In its 27th big top production, St. Louis’ own Circus Flora goes where no circus has gone before: to the moon. Powered by Ameren and inspired by Georges Méliès’ groundbreaking 1902 film, A Trip to the Moon, Circus Flora's creative team captures the film’s imaginative spirit under the big top, May 30 through June 23, next to Powell Hall. Circus Flora’s A Trip to the Moon borrows this iconic piece of cinematic history and Méliès’ artistic instruments to construct the visual styling, costuming and narrative elements for its 2013 production. An illusionist and magician by training, Méliès is revered as the father of narrative cinema and a pioneer of special effects like stop-motion photography, dissolves, multiple exposures, and hand-painted color. He was also in part the inspiration for the 2011 Academy Award-nominated film, Hugo. “I see a kindred spirit in Méliès,” said David Balding, Circus Flora's artistic director and producer. “He knew how to transport his audience and suspend their belief of what was possible. And yet over time, our world has become so dominated by what we see on screens that our immediate response is disbelief. I like to think that we are channeling Méliès’ aesthetic to show our audience what is possible in very real acts of physical daring.”


A Trip to the Moon incorporates a world-class roster of performers and musicians into its reimagination of the film, including the beloved Johnny Peers & the Muttville Comix, star equestrian Lisa Dufresne, Carlos Svenson and his Magical Flying Goats, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the St. Louis Arches, and the Circus Flora band led by Janine Del’Arte. Also taking center stage are “International Man of Mirth” Rob Torres, Mad Scientist (and juggler) Kellin Quinn, and Andrew Adams and Helena Reynolds in an aerial performance that could only happen outside the bounds of Earth’s gravity. Tickets start at $10 and go on sale March 1; group tickets are available now. A Trip to the Moon opens May 30 with a peanut-free preview and runs through June 23. Show times are Tuesday through Thursday at 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday at 1 and 7 p.m.; Sunday

at 1 and 5:30 p.m.; and “Little Top Wednesday” at 10 a.m., a special onehour show for smaller kids or the “kids at heart.” Call 314-289-4040 or visit www. for tickets and more information. Tickets are also available at the Circus Flora Box Office in the Centene Center for the Arts & Education, 3547 Olive St. Group discounts are now available for groups of 20 or more.

Religion Vatican re-enters the art world VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican is getting back into its centuries-old tradition of arts patronage with its first-ever exhibit at the Venice Biennale, commissioning a biblically inspired show about creation, destruction and renewal for one of the world's most prestigious contemporary arts festivals. The Holy See on Tuesday unveiled details of its Venice pavilion, which marks the Vatican's most significant step yet in a renewed effort to engage contemporary artists and intellectuals in ways that once created masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel, rather than inadvertently inspiring blasphemous art like Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ." The exhibit "Creation, Un-Creation, ReCreation," which opens June 1, is not religious art: There are no crucifixes or images of the Madonna or sacred objects that might find themselves on a church altar. Rather, the works explore themes like creation that are important to the church and were executed by internationally recognized contemporary artists, including Czech photographer Josef Koudelka, who were given broad leeway to create. The initiative is the brainchild of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the Vatican's culture

minister who quotes Hegel as easily as Amy Winehouse and has forged a new Vatican initiative of reaching out to atheists and people of other faiths in regularly scheduled panel discussions around the globe. "This for us is a germ, a seed to return to the hope that there can be even more commissions between churchmen, ecclesial figures and artists — quality contemporary artists," Ravasi told reporters. Ravasi has long lamented that the Holy See, whose artistic treasures fill the Vatican Museums and then some, has all but severed its ties with a contemporary art world that frequently finds in the Catholic Church inspiration for headline-grabbing, shock art rather than sublime works of beauty. Remarkably, the Venice Biennale, which features pavilions for individual nations as well as a curated show of international artists, has provided a very visible venue for such "blasphemous" art ever since its inception. In the Bienniale's 1895 first edition, the Patriarch of Venice asked the mayor of Venice to ban the exhibit's most talked-about work, Giacomo Grosso's "Supreme Meeting," which featured a coffin surrounded by naked women. Religious leaders feared it would

offend the morals of visitors. The mayor refused to take it down, and the picture went on to win a popular prize at the exhibition's end. Church officials complained about the 1990 edition, when the American artists' collective Gran Fury, a branch of the gay activist group ACT UP, showed "Pope Piece," an image of John Paul II and an image of a penis. It was meant as a critique of the pontiff's opposition to condoms as a way to fight AIDS. And in 2001, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan exhibited his scandalous "La Nona Ora," or "The Ninth Hour" — a life-size figure of John Paul being crushed by a black meteorite. The Biennale president, Paolo Baratta, acknowledged Tuesday that the Catholic Church and the art world have long had a contentious relationship, noting that there was a time when Caravaggio paintings were considered blasphemous. "This is a problem that I'm not going to solve," he told The Associated Press. "This is the problem of the coexistence of art and religion and faith." But he said the Catholic Church had re t re a t e d a n d l o s t c o n t a c t w i t h t h e contemporary art world by remaining stuck in

the "reliable" neo-Gothic, neo-Romantic, neoClassical styles that are "perfectly coherent with religion." "Every religion has to some extent switched off a bit its relations with art, not just the Cathoilc Church," he said. "It's time that all of them start rethinking their relationship with the creative artists and creative energy of the artist." Australian-born painter Lawrence Carroll, who was commissioned to do the final installment of the show, "Re-Creation," agreed. "This is vital, not just for the arts," he said. "I'm sure there was a lot of controversy within the church — that there were probably a lot of people who were against this thing, that it's foolish or wasteful or 'why are we spending money on something like this.' But I think it opens up a dialogue, and I think dialogue is important. It's a start. It's an invitation." For its inaugural Venice commission, the Vatican picked three well-known artists and art groups and gave them a relatively simple source of inspiration: the first 11 chapters of the Book of Genesis. The text describes Creation, the introduction of evil, destruction and sin into the world, followed by hope for mankind in a renewed creation.

Religion briefs Scottish cardinal to atone for sexual misconduct VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican has ordered a disgraced Scottish cardinal to leave Scotland for several months to pray and atone for sexual misconduct, issuing a rare public sanction against a "prince of the church" and the first such punishment meted out by Pope Francis. Cardinal Keith O'Brien resigned as archbishop of St. Andrews a n d E d i n b u rg h a n d re c u s e d himself from the March conclave that elected Francis pope after a newspaper reported unnamed priests' allegations that he acted inappropriately toward them. O'Brien subsequently acknowledged he had engaged in unspecified sexual misbehavior. He apologized and promised to stay out of the church's public life. On Wednesday, the Vatican said O'Brien, once Britain's highestranking Catholic leader, would leave Scotland for several months of "spiritual renewal, prayer and penance" for the same reasons he decided not to participate in the conclave. The statement didn't specify that the decision was imposed on O'Brien by the Vatican as punishment, and in fact went out of its way to suggest that the decision was O'Brien's. But in the past, wayward priests have

been sanctioned by the Vatican with punishments of "prayer and penance," and the statement made clear Francis supported the move and that the Holy See would decide his future fate.

Kansas prison officials charge doctor's killer WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The man convicted of killing one of the nation's few late-term abortion providers is now accused of trying to intimidate the woman who reopened his shuttered clinic, prison officials said. The Kansas Department of Corrections said Tuesday it filed an administrative charge against inmate Scott Roeder under a prison regulation which prohibits threatening or intimidating anyone. The 55-year-old abortion opponent is serving a life sentence at the state prison in Lansing for gunning down George Tiller in May 2009 at the physician's Wichita church. The administrative charge stems from a recorded jailhouse phone call that Dave Leach, an abortion opponent from Des Moines, Iowa, posted on YouTube last month that as of Wednesday had gotten 629 views. In it, Leach is heard saying that if someone shot the new abortion provider like Roeder shot Tiller it would be "a blessing to the babies." He called reopening

the clinic where Tiller practiced "a gauntlet thrown down, by someone who wants a fight." Roeder laughed and agree with Leach, saying on the recording that it was "death-defying" for someone to walk back into that clinic.

Singapore church on trial in pop star scandal SINGAPORE (AP) — Singapore opened a long-anticipated corruption trial Wednesday of six church leaders accused of embezzling more than $40 million to fund the pop music career of the wife of their evangelical movement's founder.

into "sham" investments to advance the career of aspiring star Ho Yeow Sun, popularly known as Sun Ho. The church with affiliates in neighboring Malaysia and other countries is one of Singapore's richest and biggest, with membership of more than 30,000. It is known in the region for staging large-scale, elaborate services resembling pop concerts which are conducted by Ho's husband, Kong Hee. The prosecution's opening statement ridiculed the contention of church leaders that pop music was a tool of evangelism that would help spread God's message. It said Ho recorded and launched secular music albums to influence people "who would never choose to step foot into a church to listen to a preacher." Investments by the church in two companies, Xtron Productions and Firna, were in substance fake transactions that were orchestrated by the accused who were all

Fired gay Ohio teacher: Union won't back complaint COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A gay teacher challenging her firing by an Ohio Catholic school says the local union for Catholic educators has decided not to proceed with her complaint. Carla Hale said Monday the grievance committee for the Central Ohio Association of Catholic Educators isn't supporting her efforts to get back her job as a physicaleducation teacher. The association hasn't returned telephone calls seeking comment. Hale also filed a complaint with the city of Columbus, which prohibits firings based on sexual orientation.

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“Iron Man 3”

No matter how much of a scrap heap of metal-twisting mayhem the “Iron Man” franchise piles on (and it’s a lot), Robert Downey’s sheer charm — his unsentimental, offhand yammering — is the real superpower in Marvel’s trilogy. The latest follows not just “Iron Man 2” but the box-office busting “The Avengers.” These global blockbusters are more produced than directed, but it’s nevertheless fitting that Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” also with Downey) here inherits the helm from Jon Favreau, the director of the previous two. Black, with co-script writer Drew Pearce, squeezes in as much self-aware, winking wisecracks that give the film some zip. But in a fight between screwball irony and blockbuster bombast, the heavy-metal action unfortunately wins. Downey’s billionaire Tony Stark (Iron Man) is pulled into a battle with the terrorist Mandarin (a bearded Ben Kingsley), who takes credit for a series of random bombings. Also in the bad guy mix is Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), an inventor turned military contractor whom Stark haphazardly jilted back in his partying years. When helicopter missiles collapse Stark’s Malibu estate into the sea, he’s separated from his companion Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and forced to rebuild himself. The action is mostly cut too quickly to enjoy and the 3-D lends a disappointing darkening for what’s been a bright-hued franchise. With Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and an excellent Ty Simpkins as a mop-headed, fatherless boy who helps Stark. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content. RUNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Frances Ha”

On paper it sounds unbearably precious and solipsistic — a cliche, even. Middle-class, college-educated white girl in her mid-20s wanders around New York City with no real home, job or purpose, and as she struggles to find herself, she ends up even more lost. Wah. But as it turns out, “Frances Ha” is absolutely charming: funny, sad, cringeinducing and heartbreaking but, above all, brimming with authenticity, thanks in large part to a winning star turn from indie darling Greta Gerwig. This is a great showcase for Gerwig’s abiding naturalism; not a single moment from her feels cutesy, self-conscious or false. She and director Noah Baumbach, who worked together on the 2010 comedy “Greenberg,” co-wrote the script, creating a sense of realism through a series of absurd moments. Frances is goofy and guileless, awkward and affectionate but clearly decent-hearted to the core, which only makes her misadventures more agonizing and makes you root harder for her to find true happiness. Baumbach, whose previous films include the subtle, brilliantly observant “The Squid and the Whale,” borrows from a couple of different sources here: the chatty, cultured New York epitomized by 1970s Woody Allen films and the black-and-white intimacy and restless youth of the French New Wave. But there’s a timelessness to this story and a universality: that state of uncertainty between the optimism of college and the responsibility of adulthood. RATED: R for sexual references and language. RUNNING TIME: 86 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

“Star Trek Into Darkness”

Like fan-boy fiction on a $185 million budget, director J.J. Abrams’ film is reverential, faithful and steeped in “Trek” mythology. It’s also an excessively derivative what-if rehash of themes and interactions that came before, most of the characters


On the Edge of the Weekend

lesser copies and even caricatures of the originals. The scenario’s been hijacked and rejiggered from better “Trek” plots of decades ago, the best verbal exchanges lifted nearly verbatim from past adventures. In short, the new chiefs of Starfleet aren’t coming up with much to call their own. But they pile on the spectacle in a way that’s never been seen before in “Star Trek”; the action in “Into Darkness” is top-notch, the visuals grand, though the movie’s needless conversion to 3-D muddies the images. Abrams was most definitely not a fan-boy for this franchise when he made 2009’s “Star Trek,” which reintroduced Kirk, Spock and the rest of the starship Enterprise gang with a timetravel twist that allowed the William Shatner-Leonard Nimoy original to coexist with an entirely different destiny for the new players. Abrams grew up a fan of “Star Wars,” the next space saga he’ll be reviving with the launch of a third trilogy. But his key collaborators, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, are “Trek” fan-boys to their marrow. They know this world, they love this world, and like many fans, they have a particular fixation on 1982’s “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” the best that the franchise has ever had to offer, on the big-screen or TV. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and Zoe Saldana are among the returning ensemble cast. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence. RUNNING TIME: 132 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Stories We Tell”

A documentary about Sarah Polley’s family: her father and mother, sister and brother, and the sister and brother she has from her mother’s first marriage. It’s about moments they’ve shared that are seemingly prosaic and universally relatable, as well as the betrayals and losses that shaped and strengthened them. But while it’s incredibly specific in its detail and makes you feel as if you’ve known these people forever after spending less than two hours with them, “Stories We Tell” is also about every family. It reveals that we’re all unreliable narrators of our own histories, especially after years and even decades have gone by. And it reminds us that the truth is a fleeting thing, constantly changing in the slightest of ways depending on who’s telling it. Polley, the Toronto-based actress-turned-filmmaker, has shown astonishing emotional depth and technical maturity at a young age in just two previous features: “Away From Her” and “Take This Waltz.” Like those earlier films, “Stories We Tell” focuses on how a long-term relationship evolves over time. Now 34 and tackling a subject that’s so close to her heart, she reveals a whole new level of artistic mastery. Her meta-, multilayered exploration of her own past combines interviews, archival footage and meticulous reenactments so seamlessly, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s mythologized. And that’s the point. RATED: PG-13 for thematic elements involving sexuality, brief strong language and smoking. RUNNING TIME: 108 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

"Before Midnight"

The final scene of 2004's "Before Sunset" was so romantic it drove moviegoers crazy — happily crazy — especially because it was so tantalizingly ambiguous. Jesse and Celine, that appealing (and extremely talkative) couple played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, who had fallen in love in the 1995 "Before Sunrise," had reunited at last. In the gorgeous afternoon light of Paris, no less. But we didn't know what would happen next. Nine years later, we have our answer, and it was sure worth the wait. "Before Midnight," the third movie in the Richard Linklater series, is not only as good as the first two, it's arguably better, tackling weightier, trickier issues with wit, humor and breathtaking directness. The setting is still

May 30, 2013

gorgeous — it's a summer vacation in Greece. (Will these two ever venture to an ugly locale?) But the rest is different. Delpy gives Celine a new hardness here, an edge that we saw only a bit in the previous film. And Hawke is extremely effective as a man who adores his partner but is increasingly frustrated with her. It all comes to a head in a humdinger of a fight — just Jesse and Celine in a hotel room, plus a bottle of wine that doesn't get drunk. It gets poured, though, and you'll be so frazzled, you'll want to reach through the screen and chug it down yourself. RATED: R for sexual content/nudity and language. RUNNING TIME: 109 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

"Fast & Furious 6"

Clearly, nobody ever told the makers of the "Fast & Furious" franchise that less is more. More is ALWAYS more — and so regular fans will be delighted with this latest installment, which again ups the ante with the cars, the crazy stunts, the crashes and the fights. Vin Diesel's Dom, now wealthy and living the good life, is lured back into action by his erstwhile nemesis, the federal agent Hobbs (the absurdly buff Dwayne Johnson). It seems a villain named Shaw has amassed a huge military arsenal — including a big tank and a cargo jet — and is one component short of wreaking total havoc. Even more important for Dom, he has Letty working for him — she's Dom's former paramour, and seems to be suffering from amnesia. A welcome — indeed, crucial — element of all this is the film's sense of humor. Especially funny are Tyrese Gibson as Roman and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as Tej, Dom's partners in crime. Not everyone gets out alive. As for the lucrative franchise, though, it's clearly alive and kicking; there's even a post-credits teaser here for the seventh film. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action and mayhem throughout, some sexuality and language. RUNNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

"The Hangover Part III"

"Daring" isn't a word you would use very much to describe 2011's "The Hangover Part II," the disappointingly lazy, beatfor-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original "Hangover" from 2009. And yet, here we are with part three, which runs a different sort of risk by going to darker and more dangerous places than its predecessors. It dares to alienate the very audience that made "The Hangover" the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time because, well, it isn't exactly a comedy. Sure, there are some outrageous lines and sight gags, mostly courtesy of Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong, who function as central figures this time when, previously, a little bit of them went a long way. But director and co-writer Todd Phillips signals early and often that he's much more interested than ever before in exploring matters of real consequence rather than simply mining them for brash laughs. This time, Galifianakis' insufferable, inappropriate man-child Alan has gone off his meds and is out of control. His family and friends — including fellow "Wolfpack" members Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) — stage an intervention and offer to drive him to a treatment center in Arizona. Clearly, this won't be an innocuous trek through the desert. RATED: R for pervasive language including sexual references, some violence and drug content, and brief graphic nudity. RUNNING TIME: 100 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.


Associated Press

This undated publicity photo released by courtesy of Roadside Attractions shows a scene from the film, "Stories We Tell," directed by Sarah Polley.

Polley tells her own story By DAVID GERMAIN Associated Press PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Enough with telling other people’s stories. Sarah Polley has moved on to telling her own, and it’s as strange, revealing, disturbing and ultimately uplifting as anything a fictional filmmaker could dream up in her own head. A shifting blend of documentary, confessional and reenactment, Polley’s “Stories We Tell” picks away at layers of history and mystery in her family life, exposing secrets to the world that many wouldn’t want to share even with close friends. A long-standing family joke — that Polley’s

father might not be her real father — sends her on a detective story as she turns the camera on loved ones to discover the truth about her mother, who died of cancer when Polley was an 11-year-old child actress with a career just taking off in Canada. Polley, 34, began it as a small experiment in storytelling, examining the selective, often contradictory nature of memory and how it can add up to a broader collective truth than what’s presented by mere facts alone. “It kind of snowballed into a film, but at every stage, I was ambivalent about how much I wanted to go forward,” said Polley, an Academy Award nominee for the screenplay of her directing debut, 2007’s “Away from Her,”

adapted from an Alice Munro short story about an elderly couple coping with Alzheimer’s. “Because it is scary to expose yourself and the people close to you in this way, and it is always a danger of being incredibly self-indulgent. “So I was really conscious of how embarrassing it could be, how ugly a process it could be to have people know so much about you,” Polley said in an interview earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where “Stories We Tell” played ahead of gradual theatrical rollout this month. “At the same time, I couldn’t stop making it, and I felt like I was learning so much. And I felt like the film was taking on a life of its own and becoming so much more about storytelling and about

why we need to tell narratives about our lives than about my family and the nitty-gritty details about us.” Polley’s second film was last year’s Michelle Williams-Seth Rogen romantic drama “Take This Waltz,” the filmmaker ’s first original screenplay. As she was developing that project and starring in such films as the romantic fantasy “Mr. Nobody” and the horror tale “Splice,” Polley continued to piece together “Stories We Tell.” The work began with straight-ahead interviews with her siblings, her father, Michael Polley, other relatives and family friends.

Enterprise crew still shines By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge Captain Kirk and his crew trekked boldly where no one had gone before. Therefore, I find it fitting that I start this review my making an equally bold statement: the new Star Trek movie has a ridiculous plot. Shocking, right? I'll stand by this assessment, though, because it hardly has any bearing on how much I enjoyed this experience. Following the massive success of the Star Trek re-boot in 2009, this sequel has been projected to be one of the top releases of Summer 2013. It picks up with Kirk's (Chris Pine) leadership coming under questions after a killer opening sequence where the dashing, reckless captain almost singlehandedly saves a race of chalkyskinned aliens from annihilation,

breaking the hallowed Prime Directive at the same time as rescuing Spock (Zachary Quinto) from inside a very active volcano. The command of the U.S.S. Enterprise is taken away from him and some of his senior officers are transferred about the Starfleet circuit. In fact, it's his mentor, Admiral Pike (Bruce Greenwood), who takes over the helm of the flagship starship when Kirk is busted down a rank to become his first officer. Aside from that really cool cold open the first 45 minutes of this picture are hugely disappointing. By the worm (hole) turns quickly! While Jim Kirk is taking his career licks, we're treated to the shady B-plot about the mysterious John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), a brilliant scientist who manipulates a few distressed parents into triggering a suicide attack on a top secret Starfleet

engineering base. This attack is a ruse to create further damage upon an assembled response team. Harrison is the Keyser Soze of this distant future and he's one awesome bad guy. After a daring attack on Starfleet Headquarters he disappears across the galaxy to Kronos, the Klingon home world, and only the dashing, freewheeling Kirk has the guts to volunteer to track him down. And this is when things get good. Without giving away serious story elements, Into Darkness is a great example of bringing the existing history of the Star Trek franchise up to speed using modern special effects and the current gritty filmmaking techniques that make our blockbusters so much more realistic and enjoyable. The gorgeous Alice Eve, for instance, joins the crew as Science Officer Carol

Marcus, an admiral's daughter and the historic love interest of the Enterprise's golden boy captain. Harrison also turns out to be a little more than what he's first postulated to be, including an acrobatic one-man war party during some of the crazier fight scenes. There's even a reference to Tribbles, the puff-ball creatures from one of the 1973-74 series most famous episodes. Into Darkness has great name re c o g n i t i o n t h a t h e l p s p a t c h the holes in its lazy, unoriginal vengeance tale. What more than makes up for this, however, is the fantastic use of visuals and thrilling hand-to-hand combat, especially those that feature Harrison and Uhura (Zoe Saldana). For me, an avowed fan of Gene Roddenberry's universe, the real appeal of this movie is the interaction between

May 30, 2013

our stars. Kirk and Spock are a featured friendship for the ages, but it's so much more than that. Every character seems to have a genuine affection for each and every other member of their team. The comic relief, both intentional (in the form of Simon Pegg's Scotty) and unintentional (Spock's struggle to grasp illogical emotion; the chronic befuddlement of Karl Urban's Bones McCoy), is alone worth the price of admission. Initially skeptical, I may found Into Darkness ultimately even more satisfying than its predecessor. Just another bold statement from me to you. Star Trek: Into Darkness runs 143 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence. I give this film two and a half stars out of four.

On the Edge of the Weekend



Stages to honor Patsy Cline By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Stages St. Louis will bring the true story of music legend and cross-over sensation Patsy Cline to life with “Always…Patsy Cline” to the Robert G. Reim Theatre May 31 through June 30. “Always…Patsy Cline” is neither a typical musical revue nor a biography of the tragic singer’s life. Ted Swindley, who created the show in Houston in 1988, wanted to present a production that featured Cline’s music in a new and different way. He based the show on an interview with a housewife named Louise Seger that he found in a Cline biography. The interview contained information about countless letters written between Seger and Cline right up until the night of Cline’s death in 1963. The show is told through Louise’s heartfelt and hilarious memories and focuses on the fateful evening at Houston’s Esquire Ballroom when Louise hears of Patsy’s untimely passing at age 30. Stages newcomer Jacqueline Petroccia will star as Patsy Cline. This is familiar territory for the actress, who has portrayed Cline in three previous productions. The most recent of which earned her a Connecticut Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Performance and a Broadway World Nomination for Best Leading Actress. Petroccia’s other credits include “Carousel” with NY Philharmonic, the national tour of “The Producers” and the starring role in the new musical comedy, “The Life of a Mob Wife.”  St. Louis’ own Zoe Vonder Harr will co-star as Louise Seger. The actress has performed in more than 60 Stages production, including “Hello, Dolly!,” “Gypsy,” “Mame” and “A Chorus Line.”

Her other credits include the first international touring company of “A Chorus Line” and numerous productions at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and the Muny. Of course, the centerpiece of this production is the amazing music that propelled Cline to stardom. Fans of Cline’s music won’t be disappointed as the show contains 27 of the singer’s most unforgettable hits, including “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams,” and many more. The show will feature a live six person band that includes Lisa Campbell Albert on piano, John Higgins on pedal steel guitar/ acoustic guitar, Jon Ferber on electric guitar/acoustic guitar, Kevin Buckley on fiddle, Vince Corkery on bass and Don Drewett on drums. “Always…Patsy Cline” ran for several productions in the early ‘90s around the southern part of the U.S. The production successfully ran Off-Broadway in 1997. It is one of the top 10 most produced shows with performances in the U. S., Australia, the U.K. and Ireland, and has rarely been produced in the St. Louis region. Stages St. Louis Artistic Director Michael Hamilton will direct with musical direction by Lisa Campbell Albert. Completing the creative team are Scenic Designer James Wolk, Costume Designer Lou Bird and Lighting Designer Matthew McCarthy. “Always…Patsy Cline” runs May 31 to June 30 at the Robert G. Reim Theatre at the Kirkwood Civic Center, 111 S. Geyer Road. For performance dates and times or to book tickets, visit or call the Stages Box Office at (314) 821-2407. Numerous special single ticket and subscription rates are available.

For The Edge

Fast Cars and Freedom, above, and Tim Campbell and the Chattahoochee Band, below, will perform at the Wildey on June 21.

By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Country music fans will enjoy a double dose of their favorite songs from Alan Jackson and Rascal Flatts at an upcoming tribute show at the Wildey Theater. Alan Jackson Tribute featuring Tim Campbell and The Chattahoochee Band will perform along with Fast Cars and Freedom, a tribute to Rascal Flatts, on June 21 at the historic Edwardsville theatre.

Campbell, who plays with area country band Doc Holliday, will reprise his popular tribute to the fair-haired country music star. Audiences first caught a glimpse of Campbell and The Chattahoochee Band’s Alan Jackson tribute at a sold-out show at the Wildey in January this year. “He’s a dead ringer looks-wise for Alan Jackson, and his voice is incredible,” said Bobby Rolens, producer and owner of production company Rolens Productions LLC.

Rolens owns and manages the company with his wife, Susan. Campbell is accompanied by the 9-piece Chattahoochee Band. This includes a collection of area musicians who Rolens describes as “the best of the best.” Rolens said he and Campbell had talked about the idea of doing an Alan Jackson tribute show for years. People were always saying how much Campbell looked like Jackson. Finally, they decided the time was right to put a show together.

“It was a really great show. People loved it. It was as good as the real thing,” said Rolens. The success of that show prompted Rolens to take the idea a step further. He started thinking about the possibility of producing other tribute acts and Rascal Flatts came to mind. The popular country band includes lead singer Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney. Rolens realized the biggest hurdle would be finding a lead

singer who could handle LeVox’s impressive vocal range. Enter Nathan Orr, lead singer of the St. Louis-based country band the Rough Ryders. “He’s such an incredible vocalist. He’s just the only one I know who can pull this off,” said Rolens. The other two members of Fast Cars and Freedom are Craig Varble and Todd Jones of Well Hungarians. The music business is something Rolens knows well. Originally from Glen Carbon, he began his music career playing in the popular St. Louis cover band Baywolfe throughout the late 1980s and early ‘90s. The band also included country music singer Gretchen Wilson for a time. Rolens later toured with Wilson as a member of her backing band for four years between 2000 and 2004. In 2008, Rolens returned home to Glen Carbon after living in Nashville for several years. He now plays guitar and mandolin with the Well Hungarians in addition to running Rolens Productions. Rolens said if all goes well, he hopes to take Fast Cars and Freedom on the road. Branson and Nashville are two possibilities. Closer to home, he’s considering a show at the Pageant later in the year. First things first though. The Alan Jackson Tribute by Tim Campbell and The Chattahoochee Band with Rascal Flatts Tribute by Fast Cars and Freedom will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 21 at the Wildey Theatre in downtown Edwardsville. Tickets cost $28 and can be purchased at www., by calling the Wildey Theatre at 307-2053 or by calling 971-7353, visiting the Parks and Recreation Department at City Hall or at the Wildey Theatre office. “To put both of [these bands] together is just an incredible show,” said Rolens.

Music Tuning in LL COOL J and Ice Cube top tour lineup Tw o - t i m e G r a m m y - w i n n i n g recording artist, LL COOL J featuring DJ Z-Trip, will headline the “Kings Of The Mic” Tour, which will prove to be this summer’s ultimate HipHop music experience. Joined by legendary artists Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul, the Tour will kick-off May 23, 2003 in Tucson, AZ and wrap-up in Los Angeles, CA on July 7, 2013.This tour underscores what true authentic Hip-Hop music is based on, with these groundbreaking artists bringing their music to fans across generations. “The Kings Of The Mic” tour will visit 26 cities, including the Scottrade Center on June 1. Tickets are available now at the Ford Box Office at Scottrade Center, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at or call 800-745-3000. Tickets purchased through phone, outlets and internet are subject to additional service charges.The tour will come on the heels of the release of LL’s 14th new studio album, Authentic, on April 30, 2013 on 429 Records/The Savoy Label Group.  The multi-platinum artist returned to the studio and kicked the volume up to create a powerful album that came from his true passion for music and would speak to his fans. Celebrating his 30th year in music, Authentic features the iconic rapper in his element. The Album is anchored by LL’s expressive attitude where his sensitive side is as present as his slicing lyrical switchblades.  Authentic comes to life with crazy club jams, tender tracks, personal tributes, and hard-hitting commentary addressing the current hip-hop climate.  First introduced to the world in 1984 as a Def Jam Records flagship artist, LL is the first rap artist to amass ten consecutive platinum-plus selling albums.  The multi-platinum artist and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee is currently tied for third place for most Billboard chart debuts by a rapper. For three decades, LL has continued to influence hiphop with rap ballads that captivate generations of audiences. Since then, the veteran rapper has evolved his scope of work across entertainment appearing in numerous television and film roles, among many other projects.  LL currently stars on one of the consistently highest rated shows on television, the CBS hit primetime drama series, "NCIS: Los Angeles." His performance on the

show has garnered him a NAACP Image Award for "Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series" three years in a row (2011 - 2013).As much as technology, business and society have changed since the 1980s, one thing has remained constant: Ice Cube has been a premier cultural watchdog, astutely commenting on, examining and detailing the breadth of the American experience in uncompromising terms with an unflinching honesty and a sobering perspective, as well as a deft comedic touch that has endeared him to several generations of fans. After penning the most memorable lyrics on N.W.A’s groundbreaking songs, including “Straight Outta Compton,” Ice Cube left the group at the peak of its popularity – a move that led him to one of the most successful careers in music history. As a solo recording artist, Ice Cube has sold more than 10 million albums while remaining one of rap’s most respected and influential artists. In addition to a successful solo career in music, Ice Cube is also an accomplished as writer, director, actor and producer in cinema who’s credits include ‘Boyz In The Hood,’ the ‘Friday,’ ‘Barbershop’ and ‘Are We There Yet’ franchises, and most recently ’21 Jump Street.’ Cube is gearing up for several film releases this year as well as his 10th solo album release, ‘Everythang’s Corrupt.’ In early 2012, Public Enemy kicked off their 25th anniversary by staging a free concert in downtown Los Angeles’ notorious Skid Row. Just a few blocks away at the Grammy Museum, a special exhibit was being installed in their honor.  No other group could possibly mark a career milestone quite like this.  Every bit as compelling as their startling first single, “Public Enemy #1,” when it was released in 1987, Public Enemy have never stopped urging to fight the power as their artistry meets with unwavering critical acclaim and legions of worldwide fans.  Fans that drove their single, “Harder Than You Think,” into the UK’s Top 5 last summer and prompted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to induct the group in 2013 - their first year of eligibility. De La Soul is an American hip hop trio best known for their eclectic sampling, quirky lyrics, and their contributions to the evolution of the jazz rap and alternative hip hop subgenres. With its playful wordplay, innovative sampling, and witty skits, the band's debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising, has been called "a hip hop masterpiece." It is the band's biggest commercial success to date, with their subsequent

albums selling progressively less, despite receiving high praise from critics. A measure of 3 Feet High and Rising's cross-over appeal was the fact that it was voted Album of the Year by NME, a title better known for its taste in guitar-based music.  In 2006, the group won a Grammy for their collaboration with Gorillaz on the single "Feel Good Inc."

The Arts

Let there be light! Saint Louis Art Museum opens its new East Building By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Walking into the East Building of the Saint Louis Art Museum the first thing that strikes you is light. It pours down from skylights in the new coffered ceiling and floods the entire structure with bright daylight. This is in stark contrast to the 1904 Cass-Gilbert-designed Main Building. While beautiful, the grand entrance appears dim and subdued compared with the bright white walls and sleek lines of the East Building. It is a perfect home for the 230 works of art, most of them modern and contemporary art, that live there. The new $130 million East Building encompasses a total 82,452 square feet of space for galleries, amenities and collections-support areas. It features 21 new galleries, increasing the museum’s total gallery space by approximately 30 percent. The total cost for the entire expansion project is $162 million. The building was designed by famed British architect Sir David Chipperfield. It features a polished concrete façade incorporating Missouri river aggregates and a wood floor made from white oak. Special grates running along the floor, part of the ventilation system, are the only visible parts of the mechanical system. The 100-seat Panorama restaurant provides visitors with views overlooking Art Hill in Forest Park through its floor-to-ceiling windows. There is also a 60-seat café for casual dining in the Level 1 Concourse,

Above, the north façade of the new East Building seen from Fine Arts Drive. Below, visitors eye exhibits. which connects the East Building to the Main and South buildings. A new 129,000 square foot underground parking garage will house 300 spaces. These will be reserved for museum members according to their level of membership, according to Matthew Hathaway, media relations officers

for the museum. But it is the light that dominates. The building’s innovative, coffered ceiling automatically adjusts to levels of daylight. This allows just the right amount of natural light to enter collection galleries. How much light gets in is determined by the artwork. Fragile works, such

as the 1968 piece by Richard Serra made from fluid rubber mixed with orange paint, are extremely light sensitive, according to Tricia Paik, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art at the museum. “It’s a balance between allowing the light in and conserving the objects,” Paik said.

May 30, 2013

The East Building’s gallery space is divided into two main sections: permanent and special exhibition space. Seven of the new galleries will be used for temporary special exhibitions. This allows for more space to show the museum’s permanent collection which includes many items that haven’t been on display in a decade or more, according to Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art for the museum. In the permanent galleries, visitors will see works by contemporary artists such as Mark Rothko, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Chuck Close and Lucian Freud. The special exhibition space currently houses the museum’s impressive collection of Postwar German Art. This includes a number of works by Max Beckmann, Gerhard Richter, such as his 1988 “Betty” and works by Joseph Beuys among others. Paik said that the museum made a conscious decision in the 1980s to begin collecting postwar German art. As a result of that forward thinking, the museum now has one of the best collections in the country. The opening of the East Building has opened up new exhibition space in the Main Building. This allows the museum to put more works on view in the Main Building and to re-open doorways and restore Cass-Gilbert’s original design for how visitors can move through the historic 1904 building. The East Building officially opens to the public on June 29. Admission to the Saint Louis Art Museum is free to all every day. For more information, call (314) 7210072 or visit

The Arts Artistic adventures Kemper to feature Contemporary German art In Beijing (2010), German photographer Andreas Gursky depicts China’s famous “Bird’s Nest” stadium, a spectacular structure designed for the 2008 Olympics by Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, with Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. Yet to create the image, Gursky digitally combined multiple viewpoints, emphasizing the building’s complex beam structure but also distorting the viewer’s perspective and freeing the final work from its reference to the actual building. I n M a y, t h e M i l d re d L a n e Kemper Art Museum will feature Beijing in Contemporary German Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection, an exhibition that highlights 16 large-scale works, all completed within the last 12 years by artists living and working i n G e r m a n y. T h e e x h i b i t i o n complements the opening of a major expansion to the Saint Louis Art Museum, which will showcase its own holdings of postwar German art. The exhibit will run through Sept. 7. Though all of these artists work within the context of a reunified d e m o c r a t i c G e r m a n y, n o n e overtly dwell on German history or national identity—nor do they demonstrate a shared visual style or singular medium, as did the socalled German neo-Expressionists in the 1980s. Rather, these artists strongly underscore their own artistic voices and individual concerns. Their artworks, similarities notwithstanding, are principally borne out of difference. Some, such as Ackermann and the late Majerus, expand the medium of painting into the realm of installation art, endowing it with a monumental presence and stability that reflects but also stands in counterpoint to the global digital revolution. Others, such as Wasmuht, revise the postmodernist strategy of appropriation to create entirely new image worlds—worlds that emphasize slowness in both their conception and perception. Just as the medium of painting is turned upside down and inside out, so too is the practice of photography. Tillmans, for example, creates largescale photographs without the use of a camera, while Demand’s practice of documenting temporary sculptures results in photographs that lack a real-world referent. Bayrle—a major figure within postwar German art, who nevertheless remains overlooked internationally— bridges photography, printmaking and sculpture. In Sun Yat-sen, he silkscreens an iconic portrait of the Chinese revolutionary onto a three-dimensional relief of wood and cardboard that suggests both highway structures and collectivist networks. Other artists explore the incorporation of the everyday into the realm of art. While Pernice challenges the ready-made as impromptu memorial, Genzken’s use of bits and pieces of the materials of daily life bestows otherwise anonymous sculptures with individuality. Von Bonin and Jensen both create objects made out of commonplace textiles, though their approaches differ: Jensen reworks the legacy of collage and found object artists such as Kurt Schwitters, while von Bonin

provocatively employs stitching, dark humor and hermetic meaning to further complicate boundaries between popular culture and socalled high art. Contemporary German Art is curated by Sabine Eckmann, William T. Kemper Director and chief curator. It will be on view from May 3 to Sept. 7, 2013. Contemporary German Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection will open with a public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 3, and will remain on view through Sept. 7, 2013. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public. The Kemper Art Museum is located on Washington University’s Danforth Campus, immediately adjacent to Steinberg Hall, near the intersection of Skinker and Forsyth boulevards. Regular hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The Museum is closed Tuesdays.

On the Edge of the Weekend


The Arts Artistic adventures Dynamic dance companies to bring Chicago Dance scene to Xfest Xfest 2013 will feature a variety of dance and theatre performances this summer from May 29- June 1 performed by companies that embrace the innovation of experimental theatre. Two of these companies will be welcomed to the SIUE campus to share the critical buzz they have earned in the Windy City: Chicago Dance Crash and The Seldoms. Xfest is an annual summer festival celebrating experimental theatre. Created by Professor Peter Cocuzza and Associate Professor Chuck Harper, both in the SIUE Department of Theater and Dance, the festival invites theater and dance companies from around the nation to perform at the SIUE campus and introduce innovative elements to the campus and the community. Crash will be presenting a sampling of its acclaimed pieces in Selected Works on May 30, and The Seldoms will present Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead, a production that addresses the current climate change debate, on June 1. Both performances will take place in the Metcalf Theater. The Chicago-based companies are led by two talented, passionate choreographers who are excited to bring their work to Xfest 2013 to share with the SIUE, Metro East and St. Louis communities: Jessica Deahr and Carrie Hanson. Deahr began working with Chicago Dance Crash in 2007, when she joined the company as a guest artist. She became

a member of the company in 2009 and received her first opportunity to choreograph for the company in 2010. Her first show as choreographer was Gotham City, which proved to be immensely successful with a sold-out, six-weekend run at the Storefront Theater. Since then, Deahr was named artistic director and continues to choreograph popular and compelling dance performances. She has also worked with many different dancers from varied backgrounds and skill sets at Crash, as the company strives to bring varied talent, and thus unique productions, to its stage. “Crash is unique in that we draw from so many dance disciplines,� said Deahr. “We cover everything from ballet to breakdance, jazz and hip hop to acro. Sometimes we feature one specific style, sometimes we fuse several of them together. In order to do so, our company dancers specialize in one area of dance but are capable of performing all styles, which gives us such a huge canvas to create with. “ Hanson, artistic director of The Seldoms, co-founded the company with a group of artists in 2001. Since its founding, The Seldoms has presented productions that tackle diverse social and economic issues that often take place in unique settings, like a truck garage, gallery spaces and an outdoor pool. Through dance, Hanson believes that the company has enabled her to express her voice, which has evolved and changed over the 10 plus years the company has been in existence. “Dance is a great platform for me to think about, research

and investigate larger concerns that I have,� Hanson said. “That has defined the shift in my work lately around more issue-based work. For a while, it was site-specific work and that was the fascination for me. Now, some of my interest is in environmentalism and a general kind of interest in notions of wealth, definitions of wealth and how we decide to share it with one another.� Both Deahr and Hanson feel that the principles of experimental theatre bring uniqueness, creativity and poignancy to their work. They draw on these principles to keep their material fresh and to bring new ideas and awareness to audiences. For Deahr, experimental theatre is about going beyond the conventional and embracing variety within dance.“Compared to the typical contemporary dance company, Crash definitely puts a lot of work and effort into being unique, eclectic and cutting edge,� said Deahr. “We always want to push the boundaries of what the audience expects to see from us within the dance disciplines we cover.� To Hanson, experimental theatre within the dance discipline is about developing new forms of expression.

Dining Delights

Edge writer shares one of her family favorites By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge


wo of the biggest stars in the summer produce spectacular have got to be tomatoes and zucchini. These staples of the backyard garden are as versatile as they are easy to grow. Whether you are a novice just getting started or a veteran gardener with years of experience, tomatoes and zucchini are two must-haves for your garden. Both do well in the Midwest and, if tended correctly, will continue to produce throughout the summer months. There is just something about biting into a juicy, red tomato fresh from the garden that screams summer. You eat them sliced with just a dash of salt and pepper or add them to pastas, salads and, well, just about anything. They are also rich in nutrients. Tomatoes are packed with the powerful antioxidant lycopene, which some studies indicate may

help to prevent certain types of cancers. And they are a good source of vitamin C. Zucchini, also known as courgette, are members of the summer squash family. These long, dark green squash are good sources of folate, potassium and vitamin A. Low in calories, zucchini are a great choice when looking for healthy ways to bulk out stews, casseroles and salads. They also make a great side dish on their own when lightly steamed or sautéed. So if you have an overabundance of tomatoes or zucchini in your garden or perhaps you’ve just picked up a handful from the local farmers’ market, then we’ve got the perfect recipe for you. This simple dish is ideal as a quick and tasty side or even as a light vegetarian supper. It could probably be considered a cousin to the classic Tomatoes Provencal although this version omits the breadcrumbs and cheese and is sautéed rather than baked. Sautéed Tomatoes and Zucchini with Garlic and Herbs Serves 4 Total cooking time: 10-12

Krista Wilkinson-Midgley/Intelligencer

Sauteed Tomatoes and Zucchini with Garlic Herbs minutes Ingredients: 4 large tomatoes, chopped 1 large or 2 smallish zucchini, sliced into rounds 1 medium onion, finely chopped or sliced 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cloves of garlic, crushed *A handful of fresh torn basil or 1 tsp dried *A handful of fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried

Salt and pepper to taste *Note: These are just suggestions. Feel free to mix and match your favorite herbs such as thyme or even rosemary for a particularly pungent flavor. Directions: Add olive oil to a large skillet over a medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened, about five minutes. Empty onto a separate plate and set aside. Add sliced zucchini to skillet

and cook until just softened. Be careful not to overcook or else they will turn bitter. Return onions and garlic to skillet. Add salt, pepper and herbs and continue to cook for another one to two minutes. Finally, stir in tomatoes and cook for a final two to three minutes or until just softened. Make sure everything is mixed well and serve immediately as a side dish or on its own.

French toast's secret? Hidden chocolate By SARA MOULTON Associated Press Time for a confession. As a child, I never once celebrated Mother’s Day. My parents thought the holiday was nothing more than a cheesy excuse to sell greeting cards, and who was I to argue? But after I became a mother myself? Oh. My. God. I’d spent years working 80 hours a week as a restaurant chef, and that was nothing compared to the amount of work required of the mother of a newborn. I buckled down and got the job done, but not without help. And not before establishing that in our house we’d most certainly be celebrating Mother’s Day. And not just once a year, but once a week. Every Sunday. At my insistence, The Husband did just as much diaperchanging, baby-bathing and bottle-feeding as yours truly. I also charged him with preparing and serving me breakfast in bed on Sunday mornings. Of course, he’s not really a cook, not even much of a home cook, so I reassured him that the meal didn’t have to be fancy. All I needed was a cup of hot coffee and something on a plate or in a bowl that I could eat at my leisure behind the closed door to our bedroom while I read all the magazines that had been piling up since the blessed event occurred. I looked forward to that little staycation all week long. Once Ruthie — our dear daughter — began to grow up, she and I started baking together. Our first project was pizza. Nothing if not kid-friendly, pizza is just as much fun to knead and shape as Play-Doh. (And, unlike Play-Doh, it’s delicious.) Meanwhile, I was doing my best to keep sugar from entering Miss Ruth’s ecosystem. Sure enough, somehow someone at some point introduced her to sweets, and to ice cream and chocolate in particular. (Let’s blame her young baby sitter.) With the genie out of the bottle, I added some sweet items to our mother-daughter repertoire. Then, when Ruthie was about 5, I invented a special recipe just for her. It incorporated two of her favorite things, French toast and chocolate. And I added one of mine, raspberries. Not only did my little chocoholic love

the taste of our French toast, she also loved to make it. The inspiration to pair up bread and chocolate had its origins in a trip I took to France with my family when I was 13. I was more than intrigued when I noticed French school children digging into a most unusual after-school snack: a healthy hunk of baguette, sliced in half and stuffed with a big piece of dark chocolate. (I had a sweet tooth of my own once upon a time.) The following recipe — perfect for breakfast-in-bed for Mom on Mother’s Day — is a little healthier than the original. We start with whole-wheat bread, replace some of the whole eggs with egg whites, and swap in raspberry sauce for maple syrup. Complement the finished French toast with some freshlysqueezed orange juice and a pot of freshly brewed coffee, and you’re off to the races. CHOCOLATE-STUFFED FRENCH TOAST WITH RASPBERRY SAUCE Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 1 pint (2 cups) fresh raspberries, plus extra to garnish 1/4 cup sugar, divided 2 large eggs 2 large egg whites 1 cup 1 percent milk 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract Pinch of table salt 8 slices whole-wheat bread, lightly toasted 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped Heat the oven to 350 F. In a blender or food processor, combine the raspberries with 2 1/2 tablespoons of the sugar. Puree, then pour through a mesh strainer. Discard the seeds and set aside the sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and egg whites. Add the milk, vanilla, salt and remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. Whisk until well combined. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Dip 2 slices of the bread in the egg mixture until well soaked. Place the soaked slices in the skillet and sprinkle each with a quarter of the chocolate. Dip another 2 slices of

bread in the egg mixture, then set them on top of the chocolate, pressing gently but firmly so the pieces adhere. Cook for 3 minutes, then carefully flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining bread and chocolate, coating the pan with additional cooking spray. When all of the stuffed French toast has been cooked in the skillet and transferred to the baking sheet, bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Cut each portion in half on the diagonal, drizzle with some of the raspberry sauce and garnish with additional raspberries. ••• Mom always said to eat your vegetables, so here is a recipe inspired by a walk through the garden. SKILLET GARDEN EGGS WITH FONTINA Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 2 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 slices prosciutto, chopped 1 small red onion, chopped 2 cups chopped Swiss chard (preferably rainbow) 1/2 small zucchini, finely chopped 1/2 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes Salt and ground black pepper 4 eggs 1/2 cup grated fontina cheese In a large nonstick skillet over medium, heat the olive oil. Add the prosciutto and onion and saute until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the Swiss chard and zucchini and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown. Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Stir well, then arrange the vegetables in an even layer. Using a spoon, create 4 wells in the vegetables, each about 2 inches across. Crack an egg into each well. Cover the skillet and cook until just shy of desired doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables and eggs, then cover and cook for another minute. Use a spatula to transfer half of the vegetables and 2 eggs onto each plate.

On the Edge of the Weekend


Dining Delights Farmers' markets sprout throughout the area By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge One of the best parts of summer is the abundance of locally-grown, fresh produce that is readily available. If you don’t grow it yourself, you can still find a wide selection of homegrown produce and handmade gifts at one of the many area farmers’ markets. Farmers’ markets have been around for centuries, but many cities are seeing a resurgence in their popularity thanks to a growing demand for fresh, local and often organic foods. On a typical Saturday morning, you’re bound to find booths bursting with locally-grown vegetables, fruits, berries, local honey and baked goods. Farmers’ markets are also a great place to pick up a bar of handmade soap, some herbs and spice or a hanging basket of flowers for your front porch. They are also a fantastic way to spend some quality family time with the kids while also teaching them about where their food comes from. The Edge has compiled the following list of nearby farmers’ markets to help get you started. This list is by no means exhaustive so if you know of any other farmers’ markets in the area that you would like to see listed next year, please email ••• Alton Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market The Alton Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market is open from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday and from 4 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday June 1 through Oct. 12 in the parking lot at the corner of 9th Street and Piasa Street (U.S. Hwy 67) in downtown Alton. The market offers fresh produce, honey, baked good, herbs, plants
