Local Mother Wants Women to Know the Uncommon Breast Cancer Warning Signs That Led to Her Diagnosis

It wasn’t Marta Mouriski’s first mammogram. With a family history of breast cancer, the mother of two started getting mammograms in her 30’s. When she noticed changes in her breast and pain, she swiftly made a doctor’s appointment.

“The biggest thing I’d share with women is if you notice a change in your body, even a small one, go see your physician right away. Breast cancer isn’t always [the lump] we often hear about,” said Marta, 48, whose mother, greatgrandmother and mother-in-law passed away from breast cancer. “As women, we try to be everything to everyone and it’s critical we take time to care for ourselves.”

Dr. Susana Gonzalez, OB/GYN of Providence Medical Group, referred her for a 3D mammogram at Providence Queen of the Valley Medical Center and an appointment with Dr. Elizabeth Cunningham, breast surgeon. The mammogram revealed suspicious findings. Radiologist, Dr. David Goller, recommended a breast MRI, which confirmed a mass consistent with breast cancer. Radiologist, Dr. Richard

Waters, then performed an MRI-guided biopsy which diagnosed the mass as infiltrating ductal carcinoma—stage 1 breast cancer.

“When I got the diagnosis, the first thing I thought is, ‘I want this out of my body’. It was shocking to hear this diagnosis in my 40’s,” said Marta. “It was caught early and was slow growing, thank goodness.”

The cancer was both estrogen (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) positive, which means it was growing in response to these hormones. This information helped the care team plan their next moves.

The first step was to connect Marta with one of the Queen’s nurse navigators—Marly Roberson. Marly joined Marta at every appointment, asking questions and was a constant source of strength.

“Hearing you have cancer is stressful and when you’re scared, it’s difficult to retain everything. My job is to organize the information, so patients understand what is happening and why. That way, no one is lost trying to figure out what the next steps are alone,” explained Marly.

“She is incredible,” said Marta. “I went through this with my mom (who didn’t receive care in Napa) and I see the difference in the care that I’m getting. We are very lucky [to have] the Queen’s resources.”

The next step was a lumpectomy. Dr. Cunningham removed the tumor with wide margins and biopsied two lymph nodes, which were both negative for cancer—it hadn’t metastasized—a major relief.

The Queen’s multidisciplinary breast tumor board reviewed Marta’s case and surgical pathology report and recommended four rounds of chemotherapy. Once she recovered from the lumpectomy, she started chemo at the Queen’s infusion center. The center offers private rooms with a TV, reclining comfortable chair, private bathroom, tea, snacks and support from medical oncologists, Dr. Gurinder Singh Sidhu and Dr. Neha Damle.

“I had a support person at each session—my husband, my dad, my sister-in-law, and Marly. They rubbed my back and held my hand; they were kind, caring and understanding.”

From left to right: Dr. Gurinder Singh Sidhu, medical oncologist; Dr. Neha Damle, medical oncologist; Marta Mouriski; and Marly Roberson, nurse navigator.

Marta’s son Aidan standing next to the birdhouse inscribed with his name, in thanks for his fundraising efforts.

During her visits to the hematology & oncology office, Marta would see the Founders Garden, a beautifully landscaped green space recently restored thanks to donations to Queen of the Valley Foundation. Marta’s teenage son had raised $5,000 to help fund the redesign shortly after his grandfather passed from cancer and his name is on one of the birdhouses.

The garden comforted her and made her think of her children: “Telling my son and daughter [that I had cancer] was the hardest thing I had to do. They lost three grandparents to cancer, and I wanted this to be a different experience. I wanted to show cancer in a different light, maintain any sense of normalcy I could and break the conformity of what cancer looks like.”

That’s what led Marta to cold capping. The Queen is the first and only hospital in Napa to offer this system which minimizes hair loss during chemotherapy by temporarily reducing blood flow to the scalp, reducing the amount of chemotherapy that reaches the hair follicles. Studies showed that 70% of patients kept at least 50% of their hair, maintaining a sense of privacy and self-esteem.

“It was a process, but Marly helped me. Because the temperature almost gets to freezing, it is very uncomfortable, but you start to not feel it when you are numb. It was worth it. I did suffer some loss, but no one can tell and I have my hair,” Marta said.

Halfway through chemo, her appetite changed, and she was referred to a registered dietitian who helped identify foods she could tolerate.

“That’s one of the things that makes the Queen so unique,” said Marly. “We have a whole cancer support services team which includes nurse navigators, dietitians and social workers to provide personalized care.”

Additionally, patients have access to therapists, meditation guides, spiritual care ministers, Rosen Method/Comfort Touch practitioners, and Active Wellness at no cost thanks to the Queen’s Cancer Wellness Program, that is funded 100 percent by generous donors (you can make a donation at

“I could never have gone through this alone,” Marta said. “There are times where it’s difficult and my husband, kids, dad,

sister, friends, employer, coworkers, and everyone on my care team has been by my side, supporting my recovery. The doctors did a great job informing me so I could make the right decisions for my body.”

One of those decisions was whether or not to have a bilateral mastectomy. Marta consulted with a genetics counselor at the Queen and ultimately, because of her family history and a gene she carries that increases her risk for another event, Marta chose to have the surgery.

“Marta carries the ATM mutation, which is rare,” said Dr. Damle. “Many people may not know the Queen offers clinical trials as well as genetic testing and I am glad Marta took

full advantage of this service. Our genetic counselor helps women who may have a pre-disposition to cancer get a good sense of their risk and navigate insurance coverage as well.”

Marta’s story is far from over and is just one of many. Each year about 255,000 women get breast cancer in the US. Most breast cancers are found in women over age 50, but it can also affect younger women.

“Especially for younger patients who may not be getting annual mammograms, it’s important to be aware of what normal feels like to you,” said Dr. Damle. “Then if there are changes, you know and can advocate for yourself. It puts you in charge.”

Find a provider at Marly Roberson, nurse navigator, joined Marta at every appointment, asked questions and was a constant source of strength.
Mammography and breast self-exams are essential in discovering changes and warning signs, like: • Change in the breast’s size or shape. • Pain. • Nipple discharge other than breast milk. • A new lump in the breast or underarm.

Hughey’s Home Cooking


“You gotta give love to your food.”

Start talking barbeque, and you’re likely to get into a “which sauce is best” discussion. Is it Kansas City or Memphis style? Maybe you prefer the sauce for which Texas is known? How about sauces from the Carolinas?

Before you weigh in with your opinion, however, be sure and try Chef Anthony Hughey’s “Made with Love” Carolina style BBQ sauces. If you had a favorite before, his are likely to replace them as your go-to.

Chef Hughey features three sauces, and Chow Chow, a cabbage and sweet pepper-based relish that definitely originated in the South, and which makes a great accompaniment for rice and ribs. Hughey started selling his sauces online about 18 months ago. He first debuted them in person at the 2021 Blues, Brews & BBQ – and sold out in an hour. That was hardly a fluke – Chef Eddie Espiritu at Sky and Vine is a convert and true believer. He recently added Hughey’s sauces to the list at Archer Hotel rooftop Whiskey Bar. “As a chef for the past thirteen years line cook for twenty, you can taste the love as well as the ingredients in food. Hughey’s Chow Chow is one of the best I’ve tasted this side of the Mississippi,” he said. “We had a group here last week who said the ribs were the best they’ve ever tasted.” If it’s good enough for them…well, try them and see for yourself.

Hughey is from South Carolina, and spent countless hours in the kitchen with his Mom and Grandma. They taught him the southern staples –

fried chicken, cornbread and collard greens – and instilled an appreciation of food that became his life. “They taught me that you can make people happy through food,” said Hughey. He did a culinary program his sophomore year in high school, where he learned to take time with the food you prepare, even when plating it. When you’re in the kitchen, “You gotta give love to your food,” he said. “Take your time, do it right and your food will be right.”

Hughey attended Le Cordon Blue College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta, earning an AA degree. His first internship was at a South Carolina county club, which featured fine dining. He later worked in an assisted living facility, where the kitchen turned out three meals a day, all from all scratch. It was a great experience and he learned a lot, but moved on to work for a cruise line, were he spent five months at a time in a kitchen at sea. It was grueling, hard work, but he loved it. He might still be there, but he met Lauren, a fellow employee, and ultimately loved her more than the work. She was ready to get off the ship and move back to Napa, and he was ready to go with her. They married and now raise their daughter, Gwendolyn. Hughey has spent the past five years working as a banquet chef at Acacia House. If you had asked him two years ago, he would have told you that everything in his life was good, except that he couldn’t find a good BBQ sauce.

“I couldn’t find anything that I liked,” he said. “Oh, there’s BBQ sauce here, but not the Carolina style I grew up with and still love.” He began to think about and formulate recipes in his head, and finally went into the kitchen and started trying them out.

“It took me a month or two to work out the ingredients, and I now have three sauces I am very proud of.”

True aficionados of Carolina BBQ sauce know that there are three subsets within that genre – a northern style which uses more of a ketchup base, a southern style that relies on vinegar, and one from the central Carolinas, which uses a mustard base. Hughey wanted to honor all three, and in March of last year, rolled out three distinct flavors for purchase.

So far, the most popular is Carolina Gold, a mustard-based sauce. Hot and Tangy employs vinegar, and Hughey’s Original is a ketchup-based option.

Like good Carolina BBQ sauce, all three contain very little sugar. Hot and Tangy and Hughey’s Original are gluten free.

“All of the sauces are made with love. I wanted to share something from home with Napa.”

The wheels are still turning in Hughey’s mind as he thinks about other food he’d like to offer. Until he settles on the next thing, enjoy his BBQ sauces, which you can find at

Leading the Way in Napa

A Community of Neighborhoods

Jill Techel

Each year in October, Marketplace Magazine shines a light on a person who has made an impact on the community. The 2022 leader being honored is Jill Techel—four-term mayor of the City of Napa—who was recently named 2022 Woman of the Year by Senator Bill Dodd. Upon my interview with Jill, I learned how her poignant story as a high school graduate was passed from father to child and back again. I learned what motivated her on the pathway to becoming a politician and how her work style was influenced by recognizing her own strengths, as opposed to emulating the strengths of others whom she admired.

. . . On Jill Techel

(LB) When you were young, what path did you wish to see your life take?

(JT) “I thought I would be a teacher or a social worker and get married and have a family in North Dakota and get involved in the community. My father was a business man and served on the local school board. He was president of the school board and handed me my diploma when I graduated. I was able to continue the tradition and handed both my children, Eric and Kristen, their diplomas!

“I just let things unfold. When I graduated college, three of us were going to Sacramento from North Dakota. We took one look at Sacramento and the freeways and headed up north. We ended up in Salem, Oregon, and that is where I got my first job as a professional Girl Scout

helping organize troops, train leaders and help with summer camp preparation. I transferred with the Girl Scouts to the Napa Solano Council after two years in Oregon; that is how I came to be in Napa.”

(LB) Tell us about your work with the Girl Scouts and the transition from that into politics.

(JT) “Girl Scouts was working with volunteers and providing support and training so they could be successful. I learned how to work with people and support the troop leaders. I took that ‘work ethic’ into my political positions, not for it to be about me—but how I can make things be better.”

(LB) Were you planning to seek public office prior to Mayor Solomon’s tragic accident?

(JT) “I was on the Napa Valley Unified School Board when Mayor Solomon died. I had served on the Napa Parks and Recreation Commission before the school board. I liked what I was doing at the time and thought city council wouldn’t be a good fit with my strengths and talents. The Napa City Council thought differently, and appointed me to the position left vacant when they appointed City Council member Brad Wagenknecht, as mayor. It happened very quickly.”

(LB) What was your most daunting challenge during your tenure as Mayor of Napa?

(JT) “I was mayor for 16 years and we faced many disasters: flood, earthquake, fire, COVID, etc. The earthquake was the most intense for the city, but also rewarding because of the resiliency of the community. Everyone helped

get Napa back on its feet. I was asked to present at a conference in Salt Lake City because I had so much experience with disasters.”

(LB) Tell us about some of the legislation you worked on or projects near-and-dear to you.

(JT) “Flood Control was a long project; we needed to get funding each year from the federal government for building the project. It was competitive and challenging. I became best friends with Senator Bill Dodd from us working together and strategizing how to get it done. Congressman Mike Thompson was always there for us and Napa.”

(LB) Please share insight about your collaboration with the local art community.

(JT) “We have come a long way in supporting art in the City of Napa. The Art Walk is visible and changes every 18 months to 2 years so we are bringing new art to Napa. I love the hanging flower baskets. The Napa Lighted Art Festival is an amazing project created by the Napa Parks and Recreation team. BottleRock and Napa Porchfest bring music.”

“What I try and focus on is Napa, like most cities, is a community of neighborhoods.”

had training in problem solving at the school board. I came to the work on the council looking at interests and options and tried to get teams to focus on options, not positions. We need more problem solvers in local government and fewer advocates. Someone told me that when I joined the city council, I would have to leave my collaborative leadership style behind because now I was in a power position and in politics. I modeled that collaborative leadership can be very effective in government.”

(LB) Comment on a topic where you see a difference being made in the future.

(JT) “There are more women running for office and being part

of the planning for the future.

I was one of a handful when I started on the Napa City Council, and now we have many women serving in government. I hope that trend continues. It isn’t as common in other parts of the country.”

(LB) When you passed the mayoral gavel to Scott Sedgley, tell us how your departure was celebrated in the midst of COVID related event restrictions.

(JT) “When my term was up on the council it was during COVID, so we didn’t have the “traditional” big dinner send off, but I wasn’t disappointed with the creativity of the team and my last council meeting. They created a video so lots could participate, and I got

a flag ceremony on film from the Boy Scouts, Congressman Mike Thompson, Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, Senator Bill Dodd, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff, Governor Gavin Newson, and all the current supervisors and mayors wished me well and thanked me for my service. I even got a clip from Steph Curry saying that we were both MVPs.”

(LB) I see you’re still very active in Leadership Napa Valley.

(JT) “I have been the program coordinator of Leadership Napa Valley since Class 10. We start Class 35 in September. I have been running the program for over 25 years. It is very rewarding to work with Napa residents who want to learn more about

leadership and Napa County, and want to give back.”

(LB) Tell us about a leader who led the way for you.

(JT) “I often asked the class members of Leadership Napa Valley to share the qualities of the best leader they have worked with, and I add it has to be someone you know and had a personal connection with. I want them to review how someone leads, not just what they accomplished or got credit for accomplishing. Leaders aren’t perfect and they have a unique style. So, who would I mention who had an impact on me? It would be Sheila Daugherty, who I served on the Napa Valley Unified School District Board with. She was direct and sometimes a little confrontational, but she

was always looking for the best decisions for the students. I tried to copy her style (for a day) —it didn’t work, and I realized that we are most effective as leaders if we work with the strengths we have and use them to lead.

Leaders can be more effective if they can partner with others who have different styles, if they can all respect what each other brings. I don’t think I would have been mayor if not for her support, especially campaigning strategies and connecting me with the contacts she had.”

(LB) Are you fully retired now, or has your focus changed to another discipline?

(JT) “I still do Leadership Napa Valley, and love it when candidates call me to get my

thoughts on their candidacy. Creating leaders for the future is still a focus, as are the grandchildren. I have four: Donovan and Carter, who are sophomores in high school, their brother Grant who is in the 6th grade, and Alexandra, who just turned six.”

From Jill’s early days with the Girl Scouts to her 2022 Woman of the Year status; from her family to the community-atlarge—she has proven to be a thoughtful and considerate leader, guiding the next generations to success.

TUCKER FARM CENTER Celebrates 100+ Years

TThe venerated, brown-shingled building sits back from Highway 29, between St. Helena and Calistoga. The Tucker Farm Center has been the site for many social gatherings, 4-H Club meetings, family reunions and dances in its 101 years.

Built by volunteers in 1921 on land donated by the Tucker family, it has been a center for the agriculture and viticulture community for

generations. It served as a meeting hall for the Napa County Farm Bureau for many years, until that organization moved its headquarters to Jefferson Street in Napa.

“Our Mission now is to support theater and the arts,” says Chris Rogers, Tucker Farm Center’s event coordinator and site manager. “It’s been an economical venue for the community. Holding birthdays,

weddings and memorials has kept us in the black. Different theater groups have rented it over the years. We donate it for educational purposes to groups like the Diamond Mountain Fire Safe Council. COVID put a halt to most parties. We haven’t brought back large groups yet. Elaine Johns has the Elevé Studio, teaching dance here several days a week.”

Rogers says that the hall can hold 150 seated guests for dinners and that there’s another back room for overflow. It has a unisex, accessible bathroom and a ramp to the entrance.

The hall was named for Reason P. Tucker. Tucker came to the Napa Valley in 1846 after travelling across the United States. He was known for organizing and heading the first group, and subsequent trips, to rescue survivors of the Donner Party. Once settled in the Napa Valley, he farmed wheat, backed the first quicksilver mine and owned part of Sam Brannan’s resort in Calistoga.

But this cherished meeting and social hall has seen better days.

“The major renovations needed to get it in good order are the roof,

foundation, total replacement of the siding, insulation and electrical systems,” says Rogers. “We don’t have a commercial kitchen. A restoration would also provide an opportunity to pave the rest of the parking lot and get better drainage done. The estimated cost starts at $3.5 million for a full historic renovation and preservation.”

“There was a time when there were many members, we had a newsletter, and it was an active place. But members have moved or passed away. We’ve talked about having a membership drive and the board has discussed a dues and benefits schedule.”

Chris Rogers continued, “The center has been through different iterations, but programs fade. Five years ago, I ran Tucker Farm Center Presents, a series of jazz shows and

poetry readings. That lasted about three years. Our board has seven members and, of course, people come and go. Over the years, the Tucker Farm Center has done a great job and people have put in a lot of effort. I commend everyone who’s been a part of it.”

Board members are proud to speak about the center and their involvement.

“I have been involved with the Tucker Farm Center for about 20 years,” says Patty Rose, Tucker Farm Center board president

What a magical building that holds so many memories for so many people. It’s now time to give back to the old girl, we are looking to raise funds to restore the building and keep it open for many generations to come.”

Hometown Halloween Trick or Treating


If you wonder if Napa still puts locals first, all you need to do is look at the yearly community events calendar, and you’ll see that locals are front and center. Nothing exemplifies this better than Hometown Halloween, when Napans are invited to dress their kids (and themselves, if they wish) in their Halloween costumes, and come downtown to Trick or Treat.

Between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, the sidewalks will be packed with children looking for a sweet handout. Stores that display black and orange balloons are inviting those kids to come in, where the odds are really good that they will get a treat; not a trick. This will be the eighteenth year of the event. Even if you don’t have children, get yourself a coffee or cool drink, find a good place to sit, and watch the fun.

When the event began, it was intended to provide children with a safe place to trick or treat.

“There’s always been at least a little concern about the safety of children

who were trick or treating. The Downtown Napa Association (DNA) thought it would be a great idea to offer a safe place to go, and the event was born. It’s been big since the beginning,” said Bill LaLiberte, past-president of the DNA. “And, it’s free,” he added with a laugh.

Diane Bishofberger, Bank of Marin Senior Relationship Manager for the Napa area, sat on the DNA board that considered adding the event. She is a diehard Disney fan and volunteered to lead the charge, and make sure that the day was one that children would love (and that Mickey would be proud of!).

Thanks to the Bank of Marin staff, characters from Disney and other movies that conjour up the Halloween spirit have shown up for photos every year. This year, trick or treaters may get the chance to pose with Woody from Toy Story. They could find a couple of photogenic characters from Harry Potter there as well. Backdrops will set the stage to make those pictures really pop.


What a perfect Halloween!

“People are so creative with their costumes, and the kids are just delightful. Some of the youngsters who trick or treated the initial years now have children of their own. It is a community, family fun, fall afternoon.” said Anette Madsen, co-owner of Anette’s Chocolates, who has participated from the beginning.

None of this would be possible without the local businesses, who buy candy by the ton just for this. We count on support from our sponsors, especially the Bank of Marin, whose staff spends countless hours making sure this event one that kids will remember all year. And thank you to the Napa Valley Marketplace Magazine, who has supported this and all local downtown events from the beginning. And a big shout out to the residents of Napa who dress up in costume and join in the fun to make this a fun, frightening and ghoulish day.

Happy Halloween to you all DOWNTOWN

In his Inaugural Address on January 21, 2009, President Barack Obama said, “For everywhere we look, there is work to be done…All this we can do. All this we will do.”

These may have been the words that inspired the late Hilary Zunin, Grania Lindberg and a small band of folks from Napa after the 2008 presidential election to begin a group. This group would foster positive change in our community, and they called it Napa Valley CanDo.

The stated goal is, “To connect, inspire and empower neighbors by making it easy to take positive action as volunteers and to learn about our community. All CanDo’s efforts are designed to strengthen and enhance the lives of

Napa Valley residents. At our heart, CanDo is about neighbors helping neighbors.”

“I first got involved (with CanDo) in 2011,” says Camille Kaijankoski, CanDo’s CORE president. “I wanted to get involved in the plastic bag ban initiative to introduce an ordinance to the city to ban plastic bags. So, I worked with fact gathering and encouraging the community to get involved. We were successful.”

“What surprised me the most about CanDo, and what still surprises many, is that everyone is a volunteer. There’s no staff, no office. Everyone works hard to make it happen. We call our leadership team the CORE, from the French word ‘Coeur,’ meaning heart.”

No one is quite sure how many volunteer members there are in CanDo.

“We have a weekly email blast that goes to hundreds of people,” says Camille. “Everyone works on projects. We may have as few as 20 working in the CanDo gardens for produce that goes to the Food Bank, but for our Green Bag Project, we have over 1000 participants, including organizations. We’re all different cogs on a wheel.”

People in the Napa Valley may most associate CanDo with the annual Give!Guide, highlighting area non-profits.

“This is the Give!Guide’s 10th anniversary. It’s an incredible project. For our 10th anniversary, we expanded

the participating non-profits to 73, that’s 18 more than usual. We had so many more organizations apply this year. Since 2013, we have raised $4,619,485 for the individual nonprofits.”

“Our goal this year is to increase the number of donors; we had 1600 donors last year. We believe we can increase that number as we build awareness in the community. The minimum donation is $10, and that amount is accessible to most people.”

Another CanDo project is the Food Rescue Team. This CanDo volunteer group goes to the Saturday Farmer’s Market and collects donated food from the vendors that otherwise might go to waste. In 2016, the first year, they collected 3,018 pounds of produce; the total collected between 2016 and 2021 was 40,277 pounds. All that food is donated to the organization Feeding it Forward Napa Valley, to distribute to the hungry in Napa County.

“There is an increased need for food,” says Camille. “Food insecurity has become more pronounced during the pandemic. We’ve developed a partnership with the CANV Food Bank and started the Gleaning Project.”

The Gleaning Project decreases food waste that home growers may have. Perhaps they grew more tomatoes than they could possibly use.

The gleaners will gather the excess and donate it to the Food Bank. Fruit trees are especially prolific. As of the middle of this year, gleaners had rescued 6,934 pounds of ripe produce to donate to CANV.

“My heart breaks when I think of how much food that goes to waste. Gleaning not only decreases waste, but food waste also impacts the environment. People have fruit trees and maybe go on vacation or just don’t eat enough of the fruit. Volunteers are needed to help take the unwanted fruits or vegetables; volunteers are also needed to let us know if they have excess food. Another easy way to help is to suggest the project to neighbors who may have trees laden with fruit. We make a difference passing on food we don’t need to those who do.”

The newest CanDo project is called “Stow It Don’t Throw It,” whose goal is to keep discarded monofilament fishing line out of our waterways and wetlands. It provides small cylinders (previously used to hold new tennis balls) and tops to store tangled fishing line until proper disposal. CanDo hopes to involve youth groups in collecting the cylinders and making the simple storage containers. So far, a Girl Scout troupe and school groups have volunteered.

“Our motto is. ‘You want to help; we make it easy.’ You can subscribe to our e-newsletter, The CanDo Connection, to learn about non-profits with fun facts and what is needed. Follow us on social media on Facebook and Instagram. One way to get your feet wet is to volunteer for a one-day project.”

It’s difficult for her to choose the CanDo project of which she is most proud, but Camille is partial to the Plastic Bag

Ban, the Gleaning Project and Give!Guide.

Camille says anyone can get involved in a CanDo project.

“The upcoming Give!Guide is an easy way to become acquainted with the non-profits in our area. That’s online and runs from December 1 through 31. We’re having a kickoff party on November 29 at Hampton Inn & Suites in Napa. Everyone is invited, but an RSVP is requested.”

More information and sign-ups for volunteer opportunities are available on the CanDo website

Napa Valley CanDo takes President Obama’s declaration seriously. “All this we can do. All this we will do.” They will do it; you CanDo, too.

For the past 30 years, the Jakob Dylan-led act has stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands –honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. While it’s been nine long years since we’ve heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, the Wallflowers are silent no more. “The Wallflowers is much of my life’s work,” he says simply. He adds with a

laugh, “It’s pretty hard to get a good band name, so if you have one, keep it.”

Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled and imprisoned barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, proprietress of a failing pie shop. Mrs. Lovett's luck changes when Todd develops a thirst for blood and provides her with an unending supply of fresh ingredients for her meat pies. Soon the people of London are lining up for these tasty treats – while some upstairs get their last, and closest, shave. Sweeney Todd has become a worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony's, including Best Musical, for its Broadway premiere in 1979. Stephen Sondheim's and Hugh Wheeler's tasty, thrilling,


theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked and delighted audiences across the world for 40 years.
