Quotes Of The Week

Random Factoid

“I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation.” — George Bernard Shaw “I think, for me, humour needs to be used like a strong spice — sparingly.” — George Murray “Variety is the spice of life.” — Proverb “If variety is the spice of life, marriage is the big can of leftover Spam.” — Johnny Carson

PEOPLE have been using hot and spicy seasonings in their food for more than 6,000 years, according to archaeologists. Christopher Columbus discovered chili peppers when he discovered the Americas in 1493, and there are 140 varieties of chili peppers grown in Mexico alone.

Talk Of The Town

Ramblings, idle gossip, and occasionally important odds ’n’ ends

What A Grand Old Time LAST Thursday was a busy day at Exit Zero Global HQ. There was last-minute painting to be done by our favorite handyman, Oscar Nunez; there were EZ-embroidered beach towels to be hung (and Swain’s, we might add, sells a dizzying array of hooks for just such a task); and there were carpets to be cleaned, pictures to be hung and naked manequins to be dressed. (And, oh yea, some of that pesky publishing to get done, too.) Amongst all this flurry, there was a nervous energy. When you invite the entire town to a grand opening party, you can’t help but worry: What if no one turns up? But you didn’t disappoint us, Cape May. Around 300 people visited our little store (well, not-so-little store, anymore)... and four dogs (including a ridiculously cute, 110pound Bernese Mountain dog called Lester who garnered almost as much attention as our expanded shop.) And what’s more: you came bearing gifts! A big thanks to Mason Cottage innkeeper Patti Goyette for the delicious treats... we’re indulging in your chocolate chip cookies as we type this. There was such a crowd, in fact, we ran out of the food supplied to us by the Depot Market Café and Seaside Cheese — we had to order pizza (thank you, Blue Moon!) — but we did NOT run out of booze, though this was not for lack of drinking. “I’m okay working,” shopkeeper Jeanine Recupero told us as she rung up an Exit Zero travel mug for a customer, “because I’m on my third Exit Zero cocktail.” This tasty concoction, if you want to know, was made with Kraken rum and orange juice, and it garnered almost as much attention as the two beautiful bartenders, Virginia Hotel

employees Helen Linney and Gina Peterson, who were serving it. (Helen told us that many of the party-goers had bets going as to how old she might be so, to settle any outstanding debates... twenty-three.) Something no one debated was the outstanding musical ability of Kate Delany Chew, whose picture you can see on the opposite page. Kate slings burritos at Big Wave during the day and impresses with her enchanting voice and acousitc guitar skills all over Cape May at night. But our favorite thing about Kate? She’s a good sport. When we asked her to play while sitting perched atop our authentic CMBP lifeguard stand, she chuckled and climbed on up. “It wasn’t anymore difficult,” she told us. “I was chilling up there, totally in awe of the new store.” We were especially happy to see people spilling onto the porch; being outside on such a mild night reminds us that spring is around the corner. When West Cape May Mayor Pam Kaithern told us we should “do this every Thursday,” it got us thinking... that’s not a bad idea! Perhaps there are some barbeques in our near future... hmmm. We were so thrilled to hear how much you loved our new merchandise (we think those handmade tables printed with old Cape May postcards are pretty groovy, too), but we were even happier to see everyone mingling. We caught Jack Fichter of the Herald conversing with Chris South of the Star and Wave. We saw Gayle Stahlhuth of East Lynne Theater Company picking from the same cheese plate as Alicia Grasso, marketing director for Cape May Stage. We saw local hotel owners and shop owners and restaurant owners laughing it up over a glass of local wine provided by Cape May Winery. Just another reminder of why we love living

in a small town, where you’re competition are also your neighbors and your friends. We think that’s a reason to celebrate all on its own. If you didn’t make it to the party, come see the new store. It’s pretty spectacular, if we do say so ourselves.

Stage Fright JOURNALISTS often get a bad rap as stirrers of the pot. We love tragedy, some people say, because it makes for a great story. We hunt down the source of scurrilous rumors, in order to publish scandal and sell more papers. But that’s not always true. Sure, we have an obligation to print the truth, and sometimes, that means confirming those scurrilous rumors. But often times, like in this case, it means debunking them. This week, we got wind that Convention Hall’s portable stage is small... too small, some said, to support Peter Nero and his 62 Philadelphia Pops, who are supposed to open the venue with a Memorial Day weekend concert. This would be tragic, considering the amount of contention already surrounding the Convention Hall project. We called Mayor Ed Mahaney (we figured it would be a waste of time calling City Manager Bruce MacLeod), who told us that the stage will be 900-square-feet most of the time, with an option to enlarge it by another 135-square feet. Then we called George Muller, Manager of Production Operations and Artistic Administration for the Philadelphia Pops. “That’s plenty of space,” he told us. So there you have it (though we couldn’t resist publishing the cartoon on the next page).

THE EXIT ZERO CARTOON... By Laurie Bender

ANYONE ELSE WORRIED ABOUT FITTING THE PHILADELPHIA POPS ON TO THE STAGE AT CONVENTION HALL?

Talk Of The Town ? From Page 13

Spicy Little Numbers YOU say you’re looking to spice things up a bit? And we’re not talking Lovejoy’s or Lace Silhouettes here. We’re talking about Love The Cook, where any Cape May cook in the know can get his or her hands on their spice of choice. We popped in for a chat with store manager Barb Gruver to see which spices please the masses these days. And since Barb’s been with Love The Cook for 18 years, we figure she knows what she’s talking about. “These are absolutely flying out of here,” Barb tells us, gesturing towards a display of Dean Jacobs Bread Dipping Seasonings. “They are so good – the Parmesan and

Tuscany Blends especially.” These little round tins feature seasonings that you can mix with olive oil for bread-dipping, a less artery-crippling option than butter. And since we are talking spicy here, we couldn’t help but gravitate over to the hot sauce wall, which is lined with bottles of zesty elixirs designed to hop up any dish. Call us crazy (it’s been done) but our eyes were drawn immediately to Dave’s Insanity Sauce. Apparently, it’s quite appropriatelynamed – Barb says she’s seen Dave at food shows and he wears a straitjacket the entire time. Barb tells us the biggest hot sauce sellers at Love The Cook are the Kiss Your

PARTING SHOT

Ass Goodbye and the Smack My Ass And Call Me Sally offerings. We guessed — and we were correct — that the names and accompanying label illustrations featuring um, hineys, have something to do with that. “Graphics are everything,” Barb says, “Absolutely everything.” And keeping in the rear-end vein, she says the Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning by Walker & Sons ($5.99) is also a big seller. “It’s simply salt, pepper and cayenne,” she says. “But in absolutely perfect proportions.” If you’re looking to up the ante on your culinary endeavors, get your butt over to Love The Cook.

AS OUR Historical Editor Ben Miller pointed out this week, the Nor’Easter that destroyed the old Convention Hall, along with the city’s wooden boardwalk, and damaged hundreds of buildings around town, happened 50 years ago this week. Ben wrote a terrific story on the storm which appeared in one of our color issues last year. You can read it online by visiting exitzero.us.

A Moment In History Historical Editor Ben Miller looks at S Mary By-The-Sea

T

HE new “Winter Hotel Building” mentioned in the article above was known as the Shoreham when it opened that year, with 150 rooms and over a thousand feet of porches with tremendous views of the Atlantic Ocean. It was renowned as one of the best hotels in the country and yet, it was forced to close its doors and sold in 1898, when it was renamed the Home for Aged and Infirm Colored People. That venture failed as well and 10 years later the building was again closed. The building’s early years were eerily reminiscent of the Hotel Cape May built on the other side of the island. Beautiful building in a great location, but nobody could make it work. In 1909, the old Shoreham felt divine intervention when the Sisters of Saint Joseph came upon it through the help of Reverend Daniel McDermott. They purchased the building and after a brief renovation, renamed it Saint Mary by-the-Sea. From that point on, the Shoreham had a new purpose, one that has endured for over 100 years. Saint Mary by-the-Sea is a religious retreat for reflection and communing with God, for the Sisters of Saint Joseph and their invited guests.

What’s Your Story?

Every week, we ask: Who the heck are you and what are you doing here? Who are you? My name is Carol Ann McDonald. Where are you from? Cape May! And where are you coming from today? A pilates class at the Franklin Street School. That’s why I’m not sure about how this photo will turn out. What were you doing when we interrupted you? Looking at these fine chocolate items in the Washington Commons Acme market. It’s the Spicy Issue. On a scale of 1-10, what’s your tolerance for spicy food? I’d have to say... two. NOTHING spicy in your cart? No! Have you been to the newly expanded Exit Zero store yet? No, but I do love the magazine. I have a son working for the goverment in Venezuela right now, and I like to send him copies. Where are you going now? Home. My son will never believe I did this!

Sleeping Around

Every week, we test the beds of Cape May’s hotels and inns. This week... The Queen Victoria. WHERE IS IT? The Queen Victoria is located on Ocean Street — one block from the mall, one block from the beach. WHAT IS IT? The Queen Victoria is actually four separate historic and lovingly restored buildings, with a total of 34 rooms. WHO RUNS IT? The inn is run by husband and wife team Doug and Anna Marie McMain, who gave up careers in the computer industry to make their dream of living by the beach in Cape May a reality. Oh, and they do it with the help of a staff of 18. WHAT’S THE VIBE? The vibe is spotless, elegant, understated, not a single detail overlooked. If the Queen Victoria were a lady, you’d describe her as not having a hair out of place. AMENITIES? Not enough space here, but we’ll scratch the surface. There are fresh flowers in the common areas, a fireplace and piano in the parlor, and a 24-hour guest pantry with complimentary coffee, tea and cold drinks. Along with the usual bathroom toiletries, you’ll find Queen Victoria Bayberry soap — and a plastic baggie to take it home — as well as a sewing kit and

Queen Victoria lip balm. In our closet was a safe, ironing board, two luxurious bathrobes and an oversized umbrella. The QV’s turn-down service includes two bedside chocolate coins — way to impress us. WHAT’S THE BED LIKE? We had an elegant four-poster bed with a charming lace canopy in the Prince of Wales room,, along with a sitting area with two comfy chairs and ottoman — perfect for viewing the beach out the bay windows. WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST? We had a savory broccoli frittata and sausage links, and a delicious slice of almond cake. There

was also fresh fruit, yogurt, and homemade granola, as well as a selection of juices, coffee and tea, English muffins, bagels, and fresh-baked muffins. OTHER REFRESHMENTS? Tea time (4-5:30 daily), was in full swing when we checked in, with cakes, cookies, and savory warm roasted red pepper dip and crackers. We helped ourselves to decaf peach tea and a piece of yogurt cake. Okay, we had two pieces of cake, but it was yogurt cake. INSIDER TIP: Customer service at the QV is a cut above. We had a last minute reservation change, handled seamlessly by head reservation clerk, Maria, who has been with The QV for 16 years. She calls it her Cape May home. You will too. RANDOM FACT: Sherwin Williams donated the paint for the initial re-painting of The Queen Victoria in 1981 in exchange for putting the building on the cover of the brochure for their new (at the time) line of historic paint colors. CONTACT INFO: The Queen Victoria is open all year. For more info, call 609884-8702, or visit www.queenvictoria.com.

The Cape May Crossword

None of that generic nonsense you see in other papers... a puzzle just for “Exit Zero”! By Kate Chadwick SO YOU love crosswords? Great. Sit down, get a cup (or glass) of your favorite beverage, relax and enjoy this puzzle. The answers to the crossword are all related to our themed issue, which is spicy. The solution can be found on the front page of our website, exitzero.us. ACROSS 3. This spice is sold in seed and ground forms. Normally used in gingerbread, cookies, cakes, biscuits, and poultry stuffing, the seed is also excellent rubbed on fresh pork before roasting. 6 . This staple of Italian cooking is also nice to have on hand for vampire prevention. 7 . The milder cousin of the onion is perfect snipped into an omelet, over a salad, and of course, atop a baked potato with sour cream. 10. T hese sweet, spicy seeds are from the ginger family. Native to India and widely used in Scandinavian cooking, these seeds are also an excellent cover-up for liquor breath. 11 . This fleshy growth between nutmeg shell and outer husk is sold in ground form for use in pound cake and chocolate dishes. Not to be confused with the self-defense spray by the same name. 12 . This 1997 film featured the Spice Girls zipping around London in their doubledecker tour bus, having adventures and performing for fans. 13 . This TV chef and restaurant owner became known for an emphatic “Bam!” whenever he seasons a dish. 15 . This spicy herb is the base for perfumes, oils and incense that has been heavily associated with hippies from the 1960s through today. 17. This Spice Girl, known as Baby Spice, is

Her 2010 film is the answer to number 23 across.

also the only blonde one in the bunch. 19. This Spice Girl was the Scary one, and is know in more recent years for a tumultous relationship with actor Eddie Murphy. 22. A mong the world’s costliest spices by weight, this one is known for its bitter taste and bright color. 23. T he average person consumes about 4500 mg of this per day, even though the body only requires about 200 mg. Also the title of a 2010 Angelina Jolie action film. 24. D on’t forget to put one of these in your next homemade soup or stew, but it’s just as important to take it out at the end. DOWN 1. The words parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme are in the chorus of this Simon and Garfunkel tune. 2. This is both a popular spice and the term used for an exceedingly wise person. 4. T he Strawberry Alarm Clock had a hit with this song way back in 1967. 5. Neil Young’s favorite ‘spice girl’ is extolled in this iconic song from his 1969 album

“Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.” 8. This line of men’s grooming products was introduced in 1938, and enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity for its fun television marketing campaign, The Man Your Man Could Smell Like. 9. T his ‘posh’ Spice Girl is married to a handsome soccer star and known for her fashion sense. 10. T his spice has been used in cigarettes and has a strong, distinctive odor and flavor. 14. S ugar and spice and everything nice that’s what these are made of. 16. B est used in ground form only, this spice is most often used in puddings, whipped cream, and as a topping for eggnog. We like it in our hot chocolate, too. 18. A ccording to the adage, this is the spice of life. 20. T his popular spice is actually a combination of 20 spices, herbs and some seeds, and is largely used in Indian cooking. 21. This spice has a sweet, anise-like flavor and is also available in seeds. It’s primarily used for flavoring sausage and pickles.

The Answer Lady

T

Wise answers to perplexing questions

HE Answer Lady invites inquiries from gentle readers on all manner of relationship quandaries, matters of the heart and ethics. If you’d like to send a query, write to info@exitzero.us. Dear Answer Lady I read with interest your recent column about working at what you love, because I would like to be a famous entertainer. I can sing, I can dance, and I can act – I am a triplethreat. I am not bragging – I’m simply confident. So why doesn’t anyone understand that a regular job is just not for me? — American Idol Dear Idol The Answer Lady certainly doesn’t want to dash anyone’s hopes for their dream job, particularly since it took her so long to land her own. And while she is certain that you possess oodles of talent, some things are meant to be careers, some to be hobbies (the Answer Lady has a friend who is an outstanding whistler, for instance, but she certainly would never expect him to make a career of it).Perhaps you are better-suited

to be a Terry-Oke regular? Or, perhaps an audition for East Lynne Theater Company, or a workshop at Cape May Stage is in order. And by the way, if these “anyones” in your life are dependent upon you for food and shelter, you’d better get your butt into any shop or restaurant in town and fill out an application for employment for the coming season. Dear Answer Lady I was at the Exit Zero Grand Opening party last week, and I ran into at least three people who said “Hi, Bill – how’s it going?”

I’m mortified to admit that I had no idea of their names in two cases, and in one, I didn’t even recognize the face! I own a small business in town, and while I do get out to eat or for a drink once in a while, but I’m not exactly a social butterfly. How can I do better at remembering names?— I’d Like to Buy a Clue Dear Clue The Answer Lady used to have a memory like a steel trap, but the busier (and older) one gets, the less room in one’s brain for such trivial things as passwords and PIN numbers, where the car is parked, what day of the week it is, much less who that vaguely familiar-looking guy is that’s frantically waving from across the bar at the Pilot House. The Answer Lady once spent a tortured dinner at Lucky Bones, trying to place the woman at the next table for two hours. (Of course, she finally broke down and asked her husband, who took one glance and said, “She works at the post office.”) Honesty is the best policy here: offer a big smile, a firm handshake, and direct eye contact, followed by, “I’m so sorry – I’m terrible with names — please remind me of yours.”

The Old Fogey

I

Ah, those good old Cape May days... by Jackson D’Catur

REMEMBER it like it was yesterday, the day I discovered curry, and brought the secret back to the western world at great personal pain. I had been hiking in the Himalayas, alone against the elements save for my snow-leopard cape and my Lee Enfield Repeating Rifle. My plan had been to discover Shangri-La (the mystical lost city, not the infamous den of sin in Atlantic City, though that was an adventure in itself, and certainly my Lee Enfield was more than useful in that hellish place), but I had had no luck, finding only the remains of Noah’s Ark (remarkably well preserved, I must say, and with some two dozen pairs of animal skeletons in one of the bottom holds, that must have been forgotten in the rush to get to land after the Deluge. I always DID wonder what had happened to the Unicorn, the Chimera, the Dragon and the Slug of Eternal Ecstasy), a whole monastery of Dalai Llamas and a diamond as big as a man’s head. Anyways, I stayed the night at a hilltop fort, and a silent monk was cooking a

dish of strange aroma and color, in an iron pot. It was as orange as a harvest moon, the texture of stew, and sitting downwind, myself and three other travelers had to keep shuffling around, as the vapor caused us to choke. We were all hungry: I had walked 100 miles that day, there was a Chinese fur trader who bore the scars of skinning a Great Bear using only his fingernails, a brutish Mongol warrior who wore ears around his neck, and yet had no ears of his

own, and an English nobleman in military dress who peered at us through a monocle. The monk finally spoke, and told us that he was making the hottest curry in the land, and were we man enough to sample it? I never turn down a challenge, and the others were similarly inclined, and so we had a little bowl placed in front of us, and were each handed a scarred, pitted metal spoon. We all supped at the same time. Instantly, the English fellow shrieked and burst into flames, the Chinese trader bit off his own tongue and ran off a cliff and the Mongol warrior clutched his hands to the ears around his neck, and fell down stone dead. For my part, I was wondering why I had swallowed a lump of molten lava, and calculating how far down through the earth it would melt once it exited the smoking ruin of my bottom. Oddly, once the pain passed – three hours later – I craved more. The monk happily passed me the secret, at gunpoint, and now, friends, I am planning that very same dish as a special meal for you all. Invites will follow.

Activity Of The Week

Y

A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Chili And Chowder Cook-Off.

OU know who you are. You’re no stranger to quinoa and arugula. You know when to buy local and when to buy organic. You’re harder on a chef than Tom Colicchio. You’re a foodie, and this is your event. The Chili and Chowder Cook-Off, hosted by the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May, will be held on March 10 at the Marquis de Lafayette. Cape May’s professional and home chefs will present their dishes for the public to judge. It’s bound to be a challenge - it’s hard to even get consensus on the definition of “chili” and “chowder.” When does meat stew become chili? When does fish soup become chowder? And which one is the best? Judging will be a tough job, but you are up to the challenge. Do you like your chowder to be creamy or brothy, white or red? Is is still chowder if you don’t use clams? White chowder came first recipes featuring cod and biscuits have been a staple of American cookbooks since 1828. Red wasn’t far behind - an 1830 recipe calls for tomato catsup and crackers. The inclusion

of pork fat or bacon is what turns a fish stew into a chowder. Or else it’s optional. Even the root of the word “chowder” is debated. It may come from the Latin “calderia” for “pot” or the Old English “jowter” for “fish peddler.” And if you think the chowder fans are contentious, the chili folks are equally divided. “Chili” includes chili peppers, but beyond

that, anything goes. What makes a meat stew “chili” is open to interpretation. Beans, meat, and tomato are required, unless you’re in Texas, where beans are omitted. The spicy chili pepper was imported from the Canary Islands, or else it is native. The spice was added to keep food fresh, or to mask the taste of fresh-killed beef. Chuck wagon cooks invented the dish, unless it was the “chili queens” who sold it from carts, or the Pueblo Indians who served it to Coronado to console him when he failed to find his cities of gold. These issues won’t be resolved at the Marquis de Lafayette on Saturday, March 10, but you won’t care. You get to taste it all. The savory smells will surround you as you wander from crock pot to crock pot, a satisfied smile on your face.

TAYLOR Mahon is setting high goals for herself. Mahon not only plays three sports, but she is also currently ranked second in the sophomore class. She is clearly very well-rounded. Even though Mahon plays sports, her top priority is her education. She strives to do well in school so she can keep her horizons as broad as possible. “I cannot stand being bored. Being so involved keeps me on my toes and I like the challenge,” said Mahon of her hectic schedule. Being involved in sports and various extracurricular activities may seem like a challenge, but Mahon has been doing it for so many years that it just comes naturally to her. She is involved in LCMR’s TV Media program and would like to have a future in broadcasting. Mahon plans to attend college at New York University, Villanova, or Princeton. Her dream school is Villanova. While at college, Mahon plans to major in pre-law and minor in Communications. “I dream big,” said Mahon. By the looks of it, Taylor Mahon is definitely setting herself up to make her dreams come true. BY BRANDON ADAMS/ PHOTOGRAPH BY JASON HOBAN

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

Three beautiful dogs from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 465-8923

«

BOWSER will make your heart melt. If not, you don’t have one. In all seriousness, he is a quiet, calm sweetie. Bowser is a bit anxious, so he’ll need time to adjust to a new home and, of course, some TLC. He doesn’t get along great with other dogs or cats, and because of his anxiety, a home without children is best. Come meet Bowser if you can spare some love; he’ll return the favor. The adoption fee is $95.

«

BLUE BELL is amazing; tied to a tree and left for dead, she’s still one of the most loving girls you’ll meet. At 45 pounds, she was emaciated when rescued, but with some much needed attention at the shelter, she regained her health. And then ...she went through an emergency hysterectomy. STILL, even after all of this, her spirits are high; she’ll even shake your hand. Please let her love you. The adoption fee is $95.

We are not out of our minds... You asked and we delivered! • Root touch-up $35* • Haircut/style $28* • T-zone hilites $35* • Other color specials online! • Keratin special $50 off • 50-minute massage: $35 plus tax • Manicures $10 Please enjoy, as these are prices you can’t afford to miss! *For new hair clients only. Established hair clients will have their own special promo; just ask your stylist!

MANNING is the man. He’s a pretty nervous guy, but after you take a bit of time with him, he’s a super sweet boy. Manning is excitable, which we think is a good thing —he’s lively! — but he can get a bit mouthy when he’s wound up. With a little training, he’ll be a great boy! If you have other dogs, he’ll probably get along with them, but he is terrified of cats (which we think is pretty adorable). The adoption fee is $95.

DUNCAN and his brother Blackout (right) were abandoned by their owner. Duncan is confused as to why he was left, so he’s a little on the scared side, but with some love, he’ll come around. This little guy has been through enough without losing his brother; it would be great to see them adopted togehter. The adoption fee is $35.

BLACKOUT and his brother Duncan (left) were abandoned by their owner...can you believe it? He’s so stinking cute! Blackout is a little bit of a scardy-cat right now — no pun intended — but with some time, he’ll come around. It would be great to see him adopted with his brother; they’re best buds! The adoption fee is $35.

SHIRLEY is a young gal with lots of Moxie. She’s playful, has lots of spunk, and is just plain fun to be around. Because Shirley is a bit of a loner when it comes to other creatures, she’d do best as the only pet. If you’re looking for an exciting way to spice up your life, come meet Shirley. The adoption fee is $70.

APE May Stage continues to celebrate the New Jersey Theatre Alliance Stages Festival by offering free theatre workshops. The goal is to equip attendees, through improvisation and the playing of fun theatre games, with the strategies professional artists use, as these techniques can apply so well to everyday life. On Monday March 12, Artistic Director Roy Steinberg will be at the Ocean City Community Center (1735 Simpson Avenue in Ocean City) at 10am and at the Cape May Court House Library (30 Mechanic Street) at 6pm. The following Monday, March 19, Roy Steinberg will be at the Sea Isle City Library, (4800 Central Avenue) at 6pm. These hour long sessions are open to all ages and levels of experience. “The theatre offers everyone techniques that help people work together, use good breathing for muscular relaxation and tap into creativity and sensitivity for leading a more fulfilling life,” says Steinberg. “The very exercises that actors use to train their instrument are applicable for sports or business or social dealings,” Television shows like Whose Line Is It, Anyway? brought improvisation into the living rooms of many Americans. The workshops will use some games that involve no words as well as some scripted material. Anything goes! There are no mistakes in these fun and enriching workshops. Be sure to join the fun and learn from Broadway professional Roy Steinberg, He has earned four Emmy nominations and is a graduate of the
