BALLET ON THE BIG SCREEN CHICAGO'S JOFFREY BALLET OFFERS A MYRIAD OF CHOICES FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO EXPERIENCE THE NUTCRACKER THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

Christopher Wheeldon's interpretation of The Nutcracker at the Joffrey Ballet tells the story of the 1889 Chicago World's Fair. PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHERYL MANN BY MITCH HURST THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

The Joffrey Ballet's annual production of The Nutcracker, one of the Chicago area’s most beloved holiday traditions, will go on this year despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Only bigger. From now through December 30, the Joffrey

will present Christopher Wheeldon's critically acclaimed adapatation of The Nutcracker at Art on theMart, the largest permanent digital art projection in the world. Art on theMart, sponsored by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, is a series of 30-minute projections on the south facade of the Merchandise Mart that can be viewed for free from the jetty section of the Chicago River and on Wacker Drive between Wells and Frank-

lin streets. Ashley Wheater, the Mary B. Galvin Artistic Director at the Joffrey Ballet (who was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II late last year), says the production is testimony to the city’s resilience.

Distinctive

ARCHITECTURE Chicago’s architecture is beautiful, diverse, and legendary—from glass and steel high-rises to grand historic homes, from prairie style to mid-century modern to contemporary innovators. In the past year alone, we’ve been privileged to represent homes on the North Shore designed by some of the area’s most distinguished architects: Frank Lloyd Wright, Howard Van Doren Shaw, and Edward Dart, to name a few. We treat every home we represent as a work of art, and look forward to putting our experience to work for you!

NEWS BALLET ON THE BIG SCREEN

From PG 1

to bring The Nutcracker to the city of Chicago," Wheater says. "We see this presentation as a tribute to the city and as a celebration of the optimistic spirit that allowed Chicago to rise from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire and produce the World’s Columbian Exposition 127 years ago," The Joffrey has been delighting Chicago audiences with The Nutcracker since its move f rom New York to Chicago in 1996, and launched its production of Christopher Wheeldon's updated version—set in the 1889 Chicago World's Fair—in 2016 to critical acclaim. While this year's presentation is a diversion from years past, it offers an unprecedented viewing experience. "This November, The Nutcracker was slated to debut for the first time at the exquisite Lyric Opera House of Chicago, however the COVID19 pandemic forced us to cancel those plans,” says Greg Cameron, Joffrey Ballet President and Chief Executive Officer. "Though the holiday season will look a lot different this year, we are thrilled that The Nutcracker will be presented on one of the largest public canvases in the world." Like many performing arts organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Joffrey to adjust its performance schedule and rehearsal and training routines. "We had been on tour and we came back from California and those turned out to be our last performances," says Joffrey Rehearsal Director Adam Blyde. "We had pieces of floor delivered to homes so that we could continue doing classes. That lasted through spring and summer." "A lot of our company members have done The Nutcracker every year, some since they were children, so this is a very unusual experience not to be doing it," adds Blyde. "It's kind of a marker for their lives and careers over the years, about the roles and how they've progressed. It's strange to be without it." But the show must go on. While there are no live performers, the Art on theMart production of The Nutcracker uses a series of animated photos taken from previous Joffrey shows. The presentation follows young Marie as she embarks on a magical Christmas Eve journey through the iconic 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The program also features paintings from the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as Arts of Life’s City Circle Heart, presenting works from artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Blyde says that while nothing can fully replace the live performance, this out-of-the-ordinary season offers opportunities to provide additional experiences for those who need their Nutcracker fix. Throughout the month of December, viewers can stream the PBS documentary Making a New American Nutcracker on Joffrey's website. The 2017 documentary, narrated by actress Neve Campbell, reveals the inner workings of the Joffrey creative team—from rewriting the story to the making of elaborate puppets to the choreographic process. The 2020-2021 Joffrey winter programming is supported by the Joffrey's Board of Directors, which is chaired by Highland Park's Anne Kaplan, who also sits on its Women's Auxiliary Board. As a precursor to the opening of the Art on theMart presentation of The Nutcracker, the Joffrey's Women's Auxiliary Board held a fundraiser on November 7 titled "Pulling Back the Curtain." The virtual event featured neverbefore-seen footage of the Joffrey's rehearsals

and costume construction, plus artist interviews about the evolution of the production since its debut in 2016. Kaplan, Ellie Forman of Glencoe, and Luann and Dave Blowers of Lake Forest were among the sponsors of the fundraising event, which raised a total of $215,000.

This year's edition of The Nutcracker will be different than past years, but it will certainly keep the tradition alive. Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, an advocate and primary supporter of Joffrey's Art on theMart, is a fan. "The Nutcracker is arguably one the most wellknown stories in the world," Emanuel says.

"What makes the Joffrey's version so special is that it's also the story of Chicago." The nightly projection of the Joffrey's The Nutcracker runs every night at 7 and 7:30 p.m. through December 30 at Art on theMart at the Merchandise Mart. For more information, joffrey.org.

COOL AS A CLASP DEERFIELD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FIND SUCCESS AS FEMALE FASHION ENTREPRENEURS WITH THEIR INAUGURAL CLASP & CO. female entrepreneurs was something people really enjoyed,” says Feldman. “It was difficult talking to store owners at first, but they started to take us more seriously because they saw that we had a solid foundation and a product we believed in.” Clasp & Co. started to get legs when the girls took their product to a local trade show and sold out of 300

BY CHIP R. BEASLEY THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

It all started in the Deerfield High School class honors business incubator. Classmates were assigned the task of solving problems they saw in their lives and turning that solution into a product. Samantha Feldman, Gabi Donenberg, Lily Zouber, Sarah Gertz, and Emily Slutzky, who make up the founders of Clasp & Co., were assigned to work with each other in a group. They all love playing sports and fashion and started talking about how the two intertwine. Specifically, the simple problem of tangled necklaces. “We all live very active lives and taking on and off necklaces gets very difficult,” says Donenberg. “We decided to make our product solve this problem.” The girls noticed, too, that other students had difficulty layering necklaces. The necklaces would flip around the front and get tangled in their hair. It was at this intersection of fashion and simplicity that their idea for the two-clasp converter, Clasp & Co.’s first product, came to fruition. In the class, which lasted their junior year, the group worked on the project every day. They turned their idea into sketches, and those sketches became prototypes. “We eventually landed on a design, but one of the first challenges was to make the clasp magnetic,” Donenberg explains. “There needed to be a way to attach the necklaces so that they could be held separately.” The idea attracted the interest of a mentor, Jordan Bressler, President and CEO of TSMGI Marketing Group in Deerfield. He connected the girls with a manufacturer overseas that could produce a prototype. After a few design changes, the two-clasp converter was ready to hit the market in the late summer of 2018.

The girls organized themselves by their strong points into various roles. “Each of us has kind of taken on a different role within the process,” Feldman explains. Gertz and Donenberg took on social media duties. Zouber and Gertz handled the shipping. Slutzky oversaw the warehouse and Feldman handled finances. After they finished the design, the girls hit the pavement. “We would go into different towns door to door and say, ‘Hi, have you heard about our product before?’” Donenberg says. “We learned how to have a face-to-face connection with people and that was a lot better for us to tell our story.” How did store owners react to them being in high school? They sold out of the two-clasp converter and reordered. “I think coming from that angle of being young

on Instagram and ran giveaways. “The pandemic has given us a real opportunity to focus on the social media and digital aspects of our company,” Donenberg explains. Asked about the future, Clasp & Co. plans to use its adaptability to adjust for college. “We’re going to try to bring it to our college campuses,” says Donenberg. “We’re hoping we can reach a whole new target audience and get into stores on campuses in different states.” They also plan to expand their brand beyond one product. “With Clasp & Co. we wanted it to be a brand and not just a product. So we’d definitely like to expand,” Donenberg notes. “We also hope that from what we’ve done we can inspire other young girls

TAKE A HIKE WALKING THROUGH THE WOODS IN THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES. BY MIKE LUBOW ILLUSTRATION BY KIRSTEN ULVE

It’s an era of social distance. People who are not “party people” by nature figure, OK, we can handle that. Still, you gotta get out. But where? Hey, did we just use the words “by nature?” There’s a clue. A hike in the woods conforms to the social distancing trend. The North Shore is rich with forest preserves and nature trails. Soon you’re enjoying a refreshing hike, content among quiet trees and fallen leaves. A chipmunk skitters away. You think, “Don’t be afraid, buddy.” But he’s gone. Then, wait a second. You see a flash of

blue through the trees. A blue jay? That could be a colorful distraction from the news of the day. You look through binoculars. Aw, just a guy in a blue hat coming this way. You’re torn. There’s the inborn instinct to greet a fellow human on a woodland trail, if only with a nod and a smile. But there’s also the desire to move further into the woods like that chipmunk. And keep the socially distant thing going. What do you do? This column was adapted by Mike Lubow from his book: Wild Notes: Observations over time about birds and other fleeting things.

• 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar or red wine vinegar • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

INGREDIENTS FOR TOPPING: • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream • 2 tablespoons sugar • Roasted Rhubarb (recipe follows) • 2 half pints raspberries • 12 fresh violets, Johnny Jump Ups, or other edible flowers

3. On a sheet of parchment paper cut to fit a sheet pan, use a pencil to draw or trace a circle 8 inches in diameter (I use my KitchenAid bowl). Line the sheet pan with the parchment, pencil side down (you should still be able to see the circle). Spoon the egg whites into the circle, using the back of the spoon to smooth the top and sides of the disk.

4. Bake in center of the oven for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake until the meringue has puffed up and cracked on the top and the surface is lightly browned to the color of café au lait, about 45 minutes more. Turn off the oven, prop the oven door open, and let the pavlova cool in the oven at least 30 minutes, to room temperature. This ensures a gradual cooling, which protects the delicate meringue. 5. Place the meringue on a cake plate. Whip the cream and sugar together until stiff. Spoon it in the center of the cooled pavlova and spread out to within ½ inch of the edge. Cover with the rhubarb-raspberry mixture. Dot with flowers. To serve, slice into wedges with a serrated knife.

• 4 long stalks rhubarb, trimmed and washed (8-10 ounce bag of frozen is OK too) • ¼ cup light-bodied red wine • ¼ cup sugar • ½ vanilla bean, split and scraped, or ½ teaspoon vanilla paste • 1 teaspoon cornstarch • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut rhubarb into one-inch sections. In a bowl, combine the wine, sugar, vanilla bean, corn starch, and cinnamon. Add the rhubarb and toss to coat. Pour into a casserole or gratin dish and roast until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. When the fruit is done, remove it and let cool, then gently fold in the raspberries. Use to top pavlova.

INFO RETAINMENT FORMER CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE RUNNER WAYNE CITRON IS BULLISH ON HIS SELFSAFE PRODUCT. BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

Former wedding photographer Wayne Citron married his creative juices to his entrepreneurial spirit about five years ago. The coupling produced a unique product, SelfSafe—the stylish and sporty USB emergency ID bracelet designed to protect the wearer and the wearer’s family at home or abroad. It’s still in its infancy, having been launched this summer. But it’s geared to give itinerant adults peace of mind. SelfSafe’s 8GB drive holds vital medical, financial, identity, and travel information, with all of it secure because it’s encrypted and password protected. “It’s like leaving your home with your desk on your wrist,” says Citron, SelfSafe’s founding partner and vice president of sales. The 70-year-old Citron—a Highland Park resident since 1986 and a man with boundless energy and an extensive background as an independent trader affiliated with the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange— experienced the light bulb moment ahead of the promising business venture in Jakarta, Indonesia, where he had been deployed by a company to teach commodities trading to the residents there. “There I was, far away from home with a 12-hour difference, in my mid-60s,” Citron says. “The phone service was shaky, as was the internet service. What if I had a problem during that trip? What if I hadn’t been feeling well and needed immediate access to my medical records? I realized how vulnerable I could have been under certain circumstances. “It started as a device that would contain only medical information,” he adds. “Two to three years ago, we thought, ‘Why not make SelfSafe more comprehensive?’ We hope it will catch fire. I talked to people at the State Department about issues related to loss of a passport, and the Centers for Disease Control gave us an implied endorsement on its website.” The subject of history was far from the center in Citron’s world of academia—until a teacher named Mr. Handler stood before Citron and Citron’s history classmates at Sullivan High School in Chicago and enthralled all in the room during his lectures. “Mr. Handler took very boring topics and made them come alive,” recalls Citron, who, during his high school years, enjoyed bowling and 16-inch softball and took judo lessons from an instructor who taught World War II soldiers the art of self-defense. “I loved how Mr. Handler taught, loved what I learned in his class. “I still love history.” That’s why a trip to any country when he taught commodities trading worldwide doubled as a golden opportunity to absorb some more history. Field trips, he discovered, could be taken well after his commencement ceremony. And without chaperones. In addition to that teaching assignment in Indonesia, Citron—who majored in political science and minored in economics at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago—instructed folks in Canada, the United

Arab Emirates, Singapore, and England, among other countries. Have passport, will pass along tips on diversifying portfolios. One of the highlights of his 2018 stay in England was entering the Ye Old Fighting Cocks public house in St. Albans, Hertfordshire. The visuals and atmosphere practically awed his socks off. It is one of several pubs that claims to be the oldest in England. There’s speculation that the original building’s foundations were put down in the late 8th century. “I had to go there and see it … just had to,” says Citron, who served as a member of the United States Naval Reserve for four years before being honorably discharged with a medical condition. “It was cool. The history is phenomenal inside the place. It’s such an old structure. And it’s still in business. What I learned was how short the people must have been all

those centuries ago. I’m 5-foot-9, and the ceiling was only about two inches from my head.” More than a few feet separated Citron and his future wife, Kristine, when they met for the first time at

a wedding in the 1970s. She was a bridesmaid at the time, posing and following instructions from the wedding photographer; he was the wedding photographer. Wayne stood by Kristine and smiled for cameras when they got married in 1976. Now the parents of Jamie and Samantha and the grandparents of one, Mr. and Mrs. Citron are active in The Night Ministry, a Chicagobased agency that works to provide housing, health care, and human connection to those struggling with poverty or homelessness. Each year, The Night Ministry serves more than 6,000 young people and adults who have nowhere else to go through its Health Outreach and Youth Housing programs. Since the onset of the pandemic, Wayne and Kristine have volunteered regularly on Saturdays as ministry providers of food in city neighborhoods, including Austin. “That’s my wife, mainly,” Wayne says. “She does most of the work. I help her pack. We pack in hundreds—100 bananas, 100 sandwiches, 100 bottles of water, and then we take them downtown. Pre-COVID-19, we’d head down there and feed the people on the streets. We’d give them chicken, fries, coffee, and desserts. It’s a wonderful organization. “I cried once, seeing people who hadn’t eaten in two or three days.” A rabid Beatles fan, Citron missed taking a seat in his Highland Park back yard and listening to Ravinia Festival concerts in 2020. The pandemic silenced the North Shore’s iconic venue and scrapped one of Citron’s “happiest joys.” About four years ago, when Sting was about to perform at Ravinia, Citron got comfortable on his home turf. But he expected little from the former lead singer and principal songwriter for the rock band the Police. “I wasn’t all that excited,” Citron says. “But, I have to admit, Sting was great for the entire two-and-a-half hours. He also was so nice and gracious to the audience. You should have heard him. You don’t forget an experience like that. I also enjoyed Glen Campbell when he performed at Ravinia during his farewell tour (in 2012). “It’s been awesome, living in Highland Park all these years,” the engaging entrepreneur continues. “Great schools are here. The people? They’re exceedingly open and nice and inclusive.” For more information about SelfSafe, visit selfsafe.net or call (844) 731-8091. Wayne Citron’s email address is wcitron@selfsafe.net.
