IN THE SPOTLIGHT THIS WEEK

The house wins t’s casino night at the PattersonAppleton Center for the Visual Arts on Saturday. No matter how you bet, the Greater Denton Arts Council wins. The Arts Guild, the fundraising branch of the council, stages an annual fall fundraiser for the arts to raise money that will go back into the community through the council’s grant program. The beneficiaries are nonprofit organizations that promote the performing and visual arts through programs, performance or gallery seasons or educational outreach that stimulates the creative skills and practices of Denton’s children, teens and adults. “Bettin’ on the Arts” is the theme of this year’s fundraiser. Instead of the guild’s traditional auction for the arts, patrons get gambling chips for the price of a single or couple’s ticket. And for those who don’t want to gamble? The guild will serve heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks and desserts. Local talent will perform. “Bettin’ on the Arts” will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the arts center, 400 E. Hickory St. Individual tickets cost $25 and couples tickets cost $40. For tickets, visit www.dentonarts.com or contact Adam R. Reese at 214-682-5829 or adam@adamrreese.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.

‘Celebration’ bookends Benge’s TWU career 3 By Lucinda Breeding Features Editor cbreeding@dentonrc.com

haron Benge said Texas Woman’s University’s Celebration is a bookend to The Fantasticks, the show she directed to open the Redbud Theatre Complex when it was moved into a renovated space in Hubbard Hall about 10 years ago. Celebration is a rarely produced show by the creators of The Fantasticks, Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt. “All in all, it’s a pretty slim plot,” said Benge, a theater professor emerita. Celebration is the final show she’ll direct as a fulltime professor. “It’s a love triangle between the boy, Mr. Rich and the girl,” Benge said. “It’s about contrast, too. Youth versus age, old versus young. Rich versus poor, greed and gluttony versus benevolence. Summer and winter.” Schmidt and Jones wrote Celebration after The Fantasticks opened. They wrote it after they’d shepherded I Do! I Do! and 110 in the Shade to score raves and ticket sales. “They made themselves some money, and so they rented a former Italian wedding chapel somewhere down in the village and they called this their portfolio — Portfolio Studio. And it was a place for experimentation with them,” she said. At Portfolio Studio, Schmidt and Jones started playing with simplicity and theater, and some of the experimentation would grow into Celebration. “They got to thinking about what is theater? How much do you have to have? What is required? What is the simplest you can do and still do theater?” Benge said. The creators arrived at ritual — that ancient ceremony that reduces all of life down into things like water, wine and blood, food and flame. “They got to looking at various rituals and the way people experience what I’m going to call feast days,” Benge said. “I like ritual, and theater is about ritual.” Benge said Celebration would challenge student performers to think through archetypes — the fire of the sun, the

Texas Woman’s University drama and music departments present “Celebration,” a rarely performed musical that originally appeared on Broadway in 1969, written by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones — the same team responsible for “The Fantasticks.” rush of young love and something that only a few experience — a life so full of feasts and excess that life loses its meaning and the wealthy are dulled by treasures. The 16 musical numbers include everything from ballad to ballet, from soft-shoe

to drum-circle rhythm. The story is simple. On New Year’s Eve, the world is ice cold. Orphan, a young boy who has been living in the garden of an orphanage, finds his home surrounded by bulldozers. The force behind them is Mr. Rich, a

man with so much wealth that he’s utterly bored with life. Potemkin, a trickster and the narrator (think El Gallo in The Fantasticks) brokers a deal with Mr. Rich: If Orphan makes him feel again, Mr. Rich will restore the garden. But both the man and

the boy trip over Angel, a girl who hopes singing and dancing for Mr. Rich will make her a star. Potemkin leads all three around by the nose before leaving them to figure everything out on their own. Benge said the costume designer Rhonda Gorman has set the show in steampunk style, which merges Victorian lines with Industrial-era flair — bolts, clockworks, leather and metal. Benge has borrowed ritual symbols to underline the feast-day gravitas of the musical. “This show opens with some banners coming through the audience,” Benge said. “First Presbyterian Church in downtown Fort Worth begins the service with banners coming down the aisles.” The show makes use of large carnival puppets inspired by gigantes, Mexican carnival puppets that sport large heads and bodies that can be worn by a dancer or performer. Benge said the musical is allegorical and broad, just as its creators intended. “So they open it on Broadway [in 1962] and what was about the simplest form of creating theater had to be blown up. The show played three months on Broadway,” she said. “It was like the Broadway people didn’t get it.” In the modest Redbud Theatre, though, Benge expects the simplicity to translate and the pageantry to speak to the heart. The performers dance and move on a two-level stage dressed up in gears and one pole (that’s right, of the pole dancing variety) and Potemkin takes a few turns on a short staircase up the side of the stage. A ladder doubles as a tree and a chorus animates it. Performances are at 4 p.m. today and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Redbud Theatre, on the northwest side of Hubbard Hall on Administration Drive. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. TWU Drama offers a “pay what you can” option at the 2 p.m. Saturday performance — pay cash at the door.

With prose as brilliant as the main character, the only time I put Delbert Judd down was to wipe my eyes from laughing so much.

Continued on Page 6

Kirkus Reviews says: “...the tale is lighthearted and funny thanks to the humor of oddball Delbert, but it also explores some substantial issues, which gives it poignancy and weight. A well-written novel...” “Hammond has created a rich, textured character and built a wonderful story around him.” -- Stuart Warner, Pulitzer-wining editor

A love defiant

Couple thrives despite odds in ‘Theory’ By Boo Allen Film Critic booa@att.net

In the early parts of the touching new biopic The Theory of Everything, it’s easy to see why Jane falls in love with fellow Cambridge University student Stephen. He’s funny, boyishly goodlooking, playful and — not so coincidentally — he’s the smartest guy to walk the planet since Albert Einstein. And walk he does until he can walk no more, because Stephen is Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne), the British astrophysicist and author of several world-changing theories on black holes and time’s relativity. Some of the technical jargon spouted in the film might be erroneous, but it doesn’t matter because the film is really a love story, a realistic rendering of a marriage subject to intense pressures and obstacles. Director James Marsh bases his film on Jane Hawking’s memoir My Life With Stephen, with a screenplay by Anthony McCarten. The Oscar-winning Marsh (Man on Wire) deftly juggles the film’s romantic elements with an adequate but not dominant recognition of Hawking’s scientific accomplishments and building celebrity. Marsh could have easily succumbed to mawkishness, whether in soliciting sympathy for the main characters, or in presenting the always tricky visual challenge of capturing Hawking’s creative process. Not long after Hawking is in-

troduced as a Cambridge Ph.D. candidate in physics, the budding scientist begins his relationship with Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). Then he receives a diagnosis of ALS — also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease — and is given two years to live (he’s still alive at 72). He suffers through the progression: limp, stumble, a cane, two canes, and then finally the wheelchair. Despite his protestations, Jane stays with him, marries him and eventually has three children by him. Marsh beautifully, delicately and honestly delineates this young romance, even when the pressures eventually prove too much. Once in a wheelchair and using a mechanical box to speak, Redmayne’s performance still connects with his impish smile and raised eyebrows. He perfectly captures Hawking’s nowfamiliar posture and movements. Felicity Jones turns in an impressive performance while carrying the film’s last half. Her Jane must be persuasively loving, self-sacrificing and attentive, but only while she retains her own identity. Marsh may sometimes let the treacle overflow, driving his narrative into mundane soapy territory, but for the most part, he has delivered a strong, resonant portrait of two special people.

COVER STORY

burden

Ill-fated elephant inspires great big music-comic project for Denton’s Fishboy

By Mariel Tam-Ray Staff Writer mtam@dentonrc.com

n Elephant, Fishboy’s new album and book about the ghost of a pachyderm, is a study in the 12 stages of revenge — where Stage 1 is the bloodthirsty desire to avenge your death; Stage 10 is forgiveness, paving the way for the final stage, redemption; and Stage 5 is revulsion and disgust over discovering that your body’s been repurposed as an electrical vessel to keep Thomas Alva Edison alive. Singer-songwriter and comics artist Eric Michener, whose band’s name comes from a middle school stunt, has been making music as Fishboy since his teens. He’s paired music and comics before: Fishboy’s 2011 album Classic Creeps came with brief comics about each song’s characters, and the band’s cross-country tour for that album inspired a tour diary in comic form. Last year brought IMAVOLCANO, a four-song EP and a mini-comic about a man who, through a bit of foolhardiness, becomes a volcano. An Elephant is something of a different beast, though — a self-released project of 12 songs and a 160-page, mostly wordless graphic novel inspired by the true story of Topsy, an ornery elephant electrocuted before a crowd at Coney Island in 1903. Topsy had killed at least one man, a drunken circus-goer who reportedly burned her with a cigar, and her execution for her crimes was exploited as Edison’s spectacular demonstration of the supposed dangers of alternating current. Michener’s indie rock band now includes the versatile Samuel Escalante on guitar, keyboard and trumpet, in addition to the steady, heavy rhythm section of bassist Scarlett Wright (who also plays in New Science Projects) and drummer Grahm Robinson (also in Criminal Birds). Over the years, Michener has also played solo, but this rock band version of Fishboy has a hefty, Who-sized sound, with a dose of the endearing quirk of Daniel Johnston, the Texas outsider who’s been able to distill decades of rock into deceptively simple lo-fi pop songs. Fishboy has been waiting months for a proper vinyl pressing of An Elephant, though the CD and book are available and the release show is Saturday night at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios. The album and the graphic novel, with some

Legend has it that Denton musician Eric Michener, a.k.a. “Fishboy,” picked up his nickname when he swallowed a live fish during a middle school field trip to a Dallas aquarium. His band Fishboy started out as a solo project.

simple animation, can be seen and heard for free at www.an-elephant.com. Def Rain and Criminal Birds will open for Fishboy on Saturday night. Michener promises an “all-out” show. The Rubber Gloves stage just might see the resurrection of the dancing gravestone of John B. Denton, as seen in Fishboy’s latest music video, “Bury My Body.” We had a chat with Michener about his creative process last week at Shift Coffee, and here are some excerpts: Denton Time: I want to start off by saying the first time I saw you at Rubber Gloves … in 2002, I saw [thenDenton artist] Cavedweller’s little brother, with a guy playing on trumpet [longtime Fishboy member Adam Avramescu], with a bunch of stuffed

animals all lined up. I thought, “This is pretty cool but goofy,” and I told my friend, “This guy is not going to be doing this five years from now.” And you weren’t. Michener: Whoever they had playing that night canceled, and I was dying to play Rubber Gloves because it was really competitive at the time to get a slot, and someone told me, “Hey, there’s no one playing this night. You should ask to see if you could play.” … I remember the stuffed animals — it was like, well, we’re playing by ourselves, let’s make it feel like there’s more people here. And for some reason I had garbage bags of stuffed animals. That’s usually the reason behind ideas — some sort of prop that I already have. What about the concepts for your albums? That usually starts off with a song that I already have, and then I expand it. So on this new one, I have this song [“Electrical See ELEPHANT on 10

Elephant Elephant”] which was a revenge song against the electrocution of Topsy the elephant, and I wrote it as a self-contained song. And then later I started thinking, “Well, how can I expand this into a full album?” By the end of the album it’s less about revenge and more about forgiveness. Because revenge is fun, but … I don’t know if it’s really satisfying to get revenge. … You can do certain thing in comics that you can’t do in any other form. And I realized, well, I have this medium of musical stories, and also I’m pairing it with comics. And I realized you couldn’t really make an animated movie this dark. … And so from the get-go I was thinking, let’s make this something unique that couldn’t be made in any other form. Because with comics and music, it’s essentially a no-budget medium — which is also something that appeals to me. Going back to the comic thing — you were basically doing three projects at once, the music, with the comics and the [online looping] animated version. How hard was it to sync all that together, as far as planning and conceiving it? Well, my process was I wrote the songs in order, and once a song was written I would take it to the band and we would flesh it out as a band. … There wasn’t a lot of multitasking. We went to the studio last February and recorded, and after getting out of the studio, then I wrote a script and I storyboarded what was going to be on each page, and how I was going to flesh out the story. … There’s specific details that are not in the lyrics, and vice versa, there’s specific details that are not in the book. … I wanted each to stand on their own, and I think they do stand on their own, but when combined it’s even more powerful. To me it seems like there’s a lot to latch on to for people who weren’t into Fishboy’s music previously, like Thomas Edison versus

Denton band Fishboy is, from left, Scarlett Wright (bass), Eric Michener (guitar, vocals, songwriter), Samuel Escalante (keyboard, trumpet, guitar) and Grahm Robinson (drums). Tesla, cruelty to elephants, just comics. Like I could see the book being sold in an indie comic shop. Well, I really want to get into writing comics — not so much drawing comics. But no one else would draw this [laughs], so I had to draw it myself. I’m happy with the way it turned out; I’m happy with the way it looks. But it’s something I’d really like to further get into, and the only way to do that is to make comics. Attaching it to an existing fan base with the music gives me a way to make a comic and not completely lose money on it. And it’s nice to have an interconnected project like that. I think it’s something unique that not a lot of people are doing. Yeah, I couldn’t really think of any comparisons. [Vermont artist] James Kochalka makes music and comics … They’re mostly separate but he does have stuff that’s combined. Or it’s usually comic artists who makes the music soundtrack to their thing afterwards. … But James Kochalka

is a big inspiration. I could kind of see it in the line work, as far as it’s really simple lines but you can still express a lot — the body language, the characters. Having really simple line work really isn’t a choice [laughs]. I was kind of wondering about that. … I guess it is a choice. Because I’m not necessarily attempting to become a classically trained illustrator or whatever. And it’s really hard to do simple illustration like that and still give off expression. [Peanuts artist] Charles Schultz is a master at it, and I’ve read from really skilled artists that stuff is harder because you have to distill things down to less lines. So I don’t know, I’m just kind of teaching myself at this point. So this version of the band I really like — it seems kind of heavier to me, or is it just my perception? Part of it’s like Scarlett’s bass playing, the music itself. Definitely the Albatross

lineup had a lot of drums, but … I know what you’re talking about — we have more rockout songs on this one. No, we have two rock-out songs. You play them all like rock-out songs. Well, recently I’ve gotten into this habit of doing, like, rock moves onstage when I feel the audience isn’t on board — or even when the audience is on board. It’s a form of stress relief. And now that we have a second guitar player, which we’ve never had, it kind of frees me up to be a little bit more loose. There’s a couple points in the album that are a little bit more loose, where I maybe have like two bars to do something weird and then jump back in front of the mike. … So, I have been doing dumber things onstage. Like I hit my head really hard at that [last] show by jumping off my amp … and just slammed my forehead into a beam. It really hurt. And I play a really light guitar so I’m afraid I’m going to break it, and I should probably stop doing that. … But it is really cathartic. So, I don’t

know, I really should stop. Kind of like the theme of going for it and just doing it. Right. And when we play that song off Volcano, “Babyfood Jar,” where the lyric is “If you’re sitting on the fence about something just do it … even if it seems like something really stupid,” we leave like a big gap in the middle of the song for me to do something really stupid. I don’t know if anyone has ever connected the lyrics to the fact that I’m doing something really stupid. … One time at J&J’s I announced that the song had 15 guitar solos and I was like counting down until like the seventh guitar solo — people started walking out. But yeah, just do it. It’s a good phrase. Some sporting goods company should use that somewhere. If there’s any advertising agencies out there, you can hire me. “Just do it” is this idea I’ve been working on. MARIEL TAM-RAY can be reached at 940-566-6883.
