Local plays link college, community, and theater Rochester has no shortage of live theater. And in a scene so crowded, some elements sometimes get lost. Consider our local college theater programs, as well as local playwrights, which rarely get significant community exposure. This month a production by the University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program will bring those two elements of the local theater scene together, as the UR stages a full production of a local playwright’s work for the first time in anyone’s memory.
Opening on Thursday, February 14, and continuing through February 24, the International Theatre Program will present “The Rochester Plays,” a two-part work by local writer Spencer Christiano. Although the plays are not necessarily set in Rochester — although they easily could be — they allow the UR to tap into the pool of talent in its backyard. It also gives an up-and-coming young playwright a larger and higher profile venue for his work.

School reform doesn’t require a new system
Ralph Spezio’s essay suggesting that we create a new, formal process to make schools more community friendly had the right emotion and philosophy behind it, but it sounds desperate, and desperation is never a good foundation for change (“A Better Model for Neighborhood Schools,” Guest Commentary). More important, the community-governed schools he talked about can become real tomorrow, and we don’t need to recreate the process to do this. The Rochester school district has the power and expertise to improve schools. Central Office and the school board need to be stirred. If someone found taking on Central Office to be overwhelming, they could get teachers and administrators to articulate a New School Unit. This policy already exists but few have explored it. Finally, a group could pursue a charter school by pulling the trigger law. Parents can take over any school they want to if they vote to do this. The point is that methods for transforming city schools into ones that are more successful, genuine, and community governed already exist. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. There always will be intense opposition from Central Office to any idea that threatens their status. Why would anyone being paid $100,000 or more to tell people what to do be in favor of creating an alternative based on shared governance? The RCSD employs hundreds of administrators who are in the system for life. Many of them do not work in the trenches and have no desire to jump into the dirty work that must happen if schools are really going to get better. Spezio was right. The solutions need to start with those behind the school and living-room walls. Administrators dropping reforms from the sky will only make things worse, but creating a new system is not necessary. What needs to happen is public outcry. RCSD parents
On our blog on Bob Duffy’s comments about Lovely Warren considering a run for mayor: Regardless of what you may think of her prospects as mayor, Duffy’s “wait your turn” condescension toward a black woman who dares to think of running against a rich white male is astounding. Can anyone imagine a Republican politician saying something like that? The editorial writers at the D&C would be in high dudgeon, and charges of racism would come jumping off the pages of City. Yet for some reason, perhaps because he is a Democrat and Second Banana to Andrew Cuomo, he is escaping criticism. Yet another double standard from the news media in this town.
community was innovative, dynamic, and brought out the best in the musicians. And for that, Maestro Remmereit deserves some public credit from the RPO, which unfortunately to date he has not received. The RPO board’s decision to go in a different direction, based in large part on findings outlined in the Craviso report, was entirely within their prerogative, and board chair Elizabeth Rice articulated this point quite clearly. Not as clear however, was whether the specific recommendations for the RPO board have been implemented. If they have been, it should have been reported, as it will eliminate the confusion around roles and responsibilities that contributed to the current situation. If the recommendations have not been implemented in their entirety, they should be. Until we learn from and correct our mistakes, we will be destined to suffer yet again, bringing to mind something George Eliot said: “It is never too late to become what you might have been.”

If Warren does challenge Richards, it’s likely that other less qualified office seekers will also throw in their hats, once again creating a messy and contentious race, which no doubt will have long term implications for the entire community. And perhaps opening the door to someone who is not qualified to fill the position. This is not a gender or ethnicity contest, it’s about the value of continuity during these fiscally challenging times. How disruptive will it be for a new mayor and his/ her cabinet to get up to speed? The choice is, what’s best for the entire community, not just some sub-set of the community. FRANKSPEAK

Unanswered questions for the RPO
As ardent supporters of the RPO, my wife and I left the recent annual meeting disappointed. We had hoped that despite the obvious rift between RPO leadership and Maestro Remmereit, the packed forum, full with supporters, could have served to light a new flame of hope, instead of fanning further discord. Everyone on all sides, those pro-Arild and those against, agrees that the programming Maestro Remmereit introduced to our
Greening the bridge
On Friends of the GardenAerial’s proposal for High Falls: I’m sure the GardenAerial can provide an innovative, urban space. However, why invest so much energy into turning the Pont de Rennes bridge into a green space when it already is a green space? It is a fantastic and heavily used trail for walking, running, and biking. As a cyclist, I was perturbed by the seemingly random and scattered placement of plants and trees during Greentopia. I had to weave my bike through it, and it made me avoid the bridge on my commute to and from work. Hopefully the new design will be conscious of the fact that the bridge is already a successful urban green space, and will work to complement green transportation and exercise, rather than hinder it.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
For a Hot Mardi Gras “Fat Tuesday Celebration!”
The next act for the RPO The two sides in the Rochester Philharmonic fight will likely be back in court soon. At first blush, a court ruling on Monday seemed to be a clear win for the RPO board: State Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Fisher basically tossed out requests from a group of dissident RPO members. Upset that the board fired music director Arild Remmereit, they had tried to get the organization’s annual meeting postponed so they could elect their own slate to the board. On Monday, Fisher sided with the board. But while the board issued a press release saying it was pleased, this isn’t the end of the story. The dissidents’ initial court actions dealt only with the holding of the annual meeting and election. That meeting has already taken place, on January 23, and Fisher ruled that much of what dissidents were asking for – permitting write-in votes at that meeting, extending the expiring terms of board members and officers, among other things – was now moot. But significantly, Fisher did not rule that the meeting and the election were void – because the dissidents had not asked for that. They can go back to court seeking that ruling. And earlier this week, their attorney, Eileen Buholtz, said she was preparing to do just that. I have mixed feelings about all of this. I believe the RPO board was correct in terminating Remmereit’s contract. But I also believe in democracy. The RPO’s bylaws make it difficult to mount opposition board candidates. And in this particular case, there was no real dissident movement until it was too late to run opposition candidates. The bylaws set the deadline for filing nominations, and by the time the board fired Remmereit, that date had passed. It’ll be interesting to see how the court rules in this next round. My hunch is that it will again side with the RPO leadership, not the dissidents. But if I were on that board right now, I’d be pushing for a far more democratic way to elect board members. I’d also take seriously reports of “a climate of fear” among the musicians. The RPO players should be at the core of everybody’s focus, and no player should feel threatened – not by a music director, not by a union, not by the board, not by other musicians. Everybody needs to start building trust among the RPO family. And if the court rules for the dissidents, and a new election is held, and the dissidents win? First of all, they won’t be in charge. Only 1/3 of the board seats will be up. There are still a few dissidents on the

As the RPO board and its dissidents head back to court, some advice for both of the warring sides. board, but I’d bet there aren’t enough to form a majority after a new election. And so, some advice for the dissidents. Some of them insist that the RPO board and the CEO should never “interfere” with the work of the music director. But the board and the CEO must make sure that the books balance. And they also have a responsibility to step in if they’re concerned about how an employee is treating others – whether it’s the music director, the CEO, a board member, a secretary, or a musician. And no, personnel problems should not be aired widely. I’ve been troubled by the suggestion by some dissidents that employers should have different standards of behavior for “artists” than for other employees. As an out-of-town RPO supporter wrote me recently, that’s ridiculous. We should not tolerate abusive behavior from anyone, not in this day and age. It’s not ethical. And it doesn’t get the best from people. Finally, there’s been enough dissident talk about withdrawing financial support – even about urging governments to cut off funds. That will cripple the orchestra. This isn’t the first time the RPO has gone through this kind of drama. It will pass. The question is how strong the orchestra will be afterwards. That depends on all RPO supporters, but for the next year, it depends primarily on the board. And on the leadership of the dissidents.

Does the City of Rochester need a hostel? Local residents Evan Lowenstein and Michael Lasota say it does. Hostels provide inexpensive lodging for travelers and are common in cities around the world — Buffalo and Syracuse each have one. Hostels typically provide a more social experience for travelers and tend to be popular with the younger crowd. They often have dormitory-style rooms — though many also have private rooms — and common kitchens so visitors can prepare their own food. Some hostels arrange group tours or outings for their guests. Lowenstein and Lasota say that some travelers seek out destinations with hostels, and that Rochester has the kinds of attractions, including museums and galleries, that could attract hostelers. The accommodations could also draw in people passing through the area, such as touring cyclists, they say. Lasota formerly managed the Pirate Haus Inn hostel in St.
Augustine, Florida, and the guests there included history buffs, tourists, and business travelers, he says. (Lowenstein is a local smartgrowth advocate.) “We feel like we’re missing out on this huge slice of travelers,” Lowenstein says. Some hostels are privately owned while others operate as nonprofits. Lasota and Lowenstein don’t have a specific plan for opening a Rochester hostel, and bringing the idea to fruition will cost money. They have discussed the idea with city and local tourism officials, and they say they got a warm reception. Right now, however, Lasota and Lowenstein are trying to build support and momentum for the idea. They’ve set up a website, www. rochostel.com, to start getting the word out.
Just as states have established common standards, Rochester has created a districtwide common core. For example: ninth-grade algebra will be the same at Monroe and Charlotte high schools. And students in one city school will receive the same level of art and music instruction as students in another.

RCSD adopting ‘common core’ curriculum
RPO drama #2
While the New York City and Yonkers school districts have seen their graduation rates go up over the last few years, Rochester’s rate seems permanently stuck around 50 percent. And 27 of Rochester’s 60 city schools are among the lowest performing in the state. One reason for the gains in New York City and Yonkers, says Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, is the implementation of what educators call the “common core curriculum.” Rochester is about four years behind New York City implementing the initiative, he says. It’s unclear why it’s taken the district so long. About 45 states have adopted the curriculum, including New York. The premise: a seventh grader in Rochester should be able to move to a public school in Massachusetts and demonstrate the same knowledge in math, for example, as the students in that school. “It’s a clear set of standards,” says Anita Murphy, Rochester’s deputy superintendent of operations. “The standards say ‘This is what children at this grade should know and be able to do.’” The curriculum gives teachers a road map, Murphy says, but it’s not prescriptive;

it doesn’t tell teachers how to teach. Just as the states have established common standards, Rochester has created a districtwide common core. For example: ninth-grade Anita Murphy. algebra will be the FILE PHOTO same at Monroe and Charlotte high schools. And students in one city school will receive the same level of art and music instruction as students in another. Murphy says the district’s teachers fell into a habit of offering students an assortment of course levels instead of the appropriate level, based on what it seemed like students could handle. For example, students would receive seventh-grade math instead of eighthgrade math, or pre-algebra instead of algebra. Remedial instruction was taking place, Murphy says, instead of the appropriate course work.
The attorney for dissidents upset over the firing of Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra music director Arild Remmereit are preparing to head back to court after a ruling on Monday that sided with the RPO board. | Attorney Eileen Buholtz said Tuesday morning that she’s preparing a new filing, asking the court to void the RPO’s annual meeting, which was held on January 23. She says she will ask that the court order the RPO board to set a new annual meeting and permit write-in votes for alternate candidates to the board. | In an earlier filing, the dissidents had wanted the court to delay the January 23 meeting. They also wanted the court to order expiring board members’ terms extended, and order the board to permit write-in candidates in the board election. But the court refused to issue a temporary restraining order delaying the meeting. | On Monday of this week, State Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Fisher ruled that most of the other dissidents’ requests were moot, because the meeting was already held. He did not rule on the validity of the January 23 meeting, because the dissidents had not requested a ruling on that issue.

Eastman House wants another shot at vets club
Morgan Management and the Eastman House are both interested in the Monroe Voiture property on University Avenue. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
A proposed apartment complex and a lingering dispute may keep the Eastman House from getting land the house director says is necessary for future expansion of the national historic landmark — one of two in the City of Rochester. (The other is the Susan B. Anthony house). Morgan Management has a contract with Monroe Voiture 111, a veterans organization, to purchase 933 University Avenue to build an apartment complex. Monroe Voiture owns the club, but several community groups use it as a meeting place. Morgan originally proposed building a four story, 110-unit apartment complex with a 118-space first-floor parking garage and a 3,400 square foot veterans’ clubhouse for Monroe Voiture. Morgan is revising the plans, however, after complaints by neighbors and neighborhood groups about the size, design, and other aspects of the project. “It’s kind of too early to talk about, but we feel that the project will fit much better with the revisions that we’re making,” says Kevin Morgan, vice president with Morgan Management. The property is adjacent to the Eastman House and house director Bruce Barnes says the proposed apartment complex would damage the aesthetic of the Eastman property and hurt its value. “It would very, very dramatically affect what people would see,” he says. “It’s only 20 feet from the property line, there are a number of trees they’d have to cut down. I think any apartment building that you would put there would be very jarring [and] would be a problem for us, frankly.” “The most important thing to us is that we don’t want someone to ruin the view from our national historic landmark property,” Barnes says. 6 CITY
FEBRUARY 6-12, 2013
But Kevin Morgan says the real reason Eastman officials are upset is because they failed to acquire the Monroe Voiture property when they had the chance. “From what the Eastman House has told us, they want the property for themselves regardless of what we do,” Morgan says. “They’ve admitted that they were sleeping at the switch. Unfortunately, now we’re caught in the middle of that. They’re going to oppose anything we do.” The Eastman properties and Monroe Voiture 111 are in the East Avenue Preservation District, which means the Morgan proposal has to get the approval of the city’s Preservation Board. The board had one fact-finding meeting on the proposal in January. Kevin Morgan says revised plans will likely be in front of the Preservation Board in March. Barnes says the Eastman House came close
to a deal with Monroe Voiture about three years ago, but it didn’t come together. “We let it slip away,” he says. “We didn’t handle the situation quite the way we should have.” Major expansion on Eastman’s current property would most likely be prohibited, Barnes says, because of the historic status of
Eastman’s house and grounds. So it’s logical, he says, to look to the Monroe Voiture property as potential growth space. Eastman could use the property for classrooms, a small dorm, storage, laboratories, or other purposes, Barnes says. “We’re going to need more space soon,” he says. “We’re close to out of space.” Morgan’s purchase of 933 University is contingent on getting the required approvals from the city for the apartment project. If the project doesn’t go through, Morgan can walk away. If that happens, Barnes says the Eastman House would like to step in. “I am optimistic that, in the event the deal with Morgan Management is terminated, the Monroe Voiture and George Eastman House would be able to reach a mutual acceptable arrangement under which the Monroe Voiture property would be transferred to George Eastman House, which would assure that the clubhouse would be well-maintained into the future,” wrote Barnes in a follow-up e-mail. But that might not be easy. Rene Vanmulem, club manager of Monroe Voiture 111, says Eastman officials wanted to “lock up” the Monroe Voiture property for 20 years in case they decided they wanted to use it, Vanmulem says, while offering Monroe Voiture little in return. The offer was an “insult,” he says, and quite different than what club members expected based on its discussions with Eastman officials. “Needless to say, our board of directors was not born yesterday and told them we were not in the least bit interested,” Vanmulem says. “There’s been no further discussion with the Eastman House since that time as far as them purchasing the property.”
Barnes, who was not with the Eastman House when the discussions with Monroe Voiture took place, says the club was offered long-term maintenance of its clubhouse as part of the deal, but the duration was unsatisfactory to Monroe Voiture’s board. If the Morgan project is approved, Monroe Voiture will get a new clubhouse out of the deal. That’s important, Vanmulem says, because the current building is old and maintenance is difficult for the membership. “It’s above and beyond our means,” he says. “So when the [Morgan] opportunity came along, it was too good for us to pass up.” Vanmulem says he agrees that Morgan’s initial designs were “pretty bland” and the project would have not provided a good backdrop to the Eastman property, “but given some time and the proper rendering, I think they can make the project work.” If the Morgan deal falls through, Monroe Voiture might consider discussions with the Eastman House, Vanmulem says, but it’s by no means a done deal. “They would very honestly be coming to us on our terms, not on theirs,” he says. “We’re going to be in the driver’s seat, so to speak.” Those terms haven’t been discussed, Vanmulem says, but they would be “substantial” and would likely include cash and repairs to the Monroe Voiture building. And there might be options beyond Morgan Management or the Eastman House, he says. Since the Morgan proposal was made public, other organizations have come forward with interest in the Monroe Voiture property, Vanmulem says. “There could be other choices at this point,” he says.

Mid-winter thaw Thai Time Cuisine 2171 W. HENRIETTA ROAD 270-5530, THAITIMEROCHESTER.COM MONDAY-THURSDAY 11 A.M.-9:30 P.M., FRIDAY-SATURDAY 11 A.M.-10 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
Thailand. In the depths of a brutal winter just the name of the place evokes a tropical breeze. Tom yum, larb kai, som tum, goong yang — even the sing-song names of dishes have a South Seas sort of playful languor to them. And the curries — the relatively safe yellow, the red the color of lava and not much cooler, deceptively mildlooking green — promise heat to warm you from the inside out. Thai food in the middle of February probably won’t thaw out your poor frozen toes, but it can make you briefly forget the privations of life up here in the frozen north. And that’s why one frigid Tuesday I found myself popping the lid off of a take-out container full of pumpkin-basil curry from our city’s newest Thai restaurant, Thai Time on Henrietta Road, inhaling a gust of steam perfumed
with the sweetness of pumpkin, the licorice bite of Thai basil, and a host of other spices as I picked up my fork and dug in. Thai Time, a venture by the husbandwife team of restaurant veterans Savat and Dao Tinawong, is a bit of a departure from the norm here in Rochester. You can find the usual yellow, red, and green curries. There’s pad thai if you want it. And there’s satay with peanut sauce, of course. But mixed in are several dishes you won’t find easily in our area. Som tum, a spicy salad of shredded green papaya and carrots in chili-lime dressing mixed with chopped tomato and dusted with peanuts, is not particularly hard to find around here, but everywhere else I’ve had it holds back on the fish sauce. Also known as nam pla, that unbelievably foul-smelling condiment essential to both Thai and Vietnamese food gives food depth once you do some fancy alchemy with it involving vinegar and lime juice. Leaving it out, or using too little, creates a one-dimensional dish. Savat Tinawong does not pull his punches, and the flavors in his som tum ($7.95) pop like July 4 fireworks, the chili almost dancing on your tongue.
His pumpkin-basil curry is also a marvel. Chunks of slow-roasted pumpkin stir-fried over intense heat with red curry paste, bell peppers, and a generous handful of Thai basil, this dish — particularly after it is finished with an infusion of coconut milk — is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Add in shredded pork or slices of lovingly prepared chicken breast (I will never understand how they make it so tender), and a bit of rice, and you might never need to eat anything else again, ever ($10.95 with chicken or pork). But then you’d be missing out on the larb kai ($8.95), my favorite Thai dish — offered at Thai Time and nowhere else in the Rochester area that I’ve yet found (if you know of others, do let me know). Larb kai is one of those deceptively simple dishes, not much more than a “salad” of ground chicken, chilis, fish sauce, and lime juice tossed with a bit of chopped shallot and sometimes scallions and served cold, often with lettuce leaves to use as scoops. What brings the dish together in some inscrutable way is an ingredient you will never see listed on the menu: toasted rice powder. I’m not sure exactly what difference it makes — it doesn’t really taste
like anything and its texture is merely gritty — but without it larb simply isn’t larb. As with everything else on the menu, Savat Tinawong takes a very judicious approach to this key ingredient, as well as the construction of his dressing, leaving just enough fish sauce aroma in the dressing to be pleasant but not cloying. Even the lettuce leaves are thoughtfully cut into easy foldable triangles, perfect for scooping up bite-sized portions of that amazing chicken. The first time I read through Thai Time’s menu, I was lulled into a sense of familiarity by the usual names for dishes, the singsong quality of the whole thing. And then I turned to the last page of the menu and ran headfirst into “Dad’s Best BBQ Pork” and “Mom’s Best BBQ Chicken.” I quickly checked the cover of the menu to make sure I was still in a Thai restaurant, and then ordered the pork. Based on a recipe developed by Dao Tinawong’s father, this tender, slow-roasted pork ($9.95) redolent of lemongrass and maybe a bit of galangal might inspire you to toss out your barbecue sauce and make a trip to the Asian grocery store for some new ingredients. Roasted and then grilled to give it a bit of smoke, the meat is cut across the grain in thick slices, each of which has a pinkish-red rim of spices that add savor to every bite. Served with rice and pickled carrots and daikon, it really is some of the best barbecued pork I’ve tasted in a long time. As I mentioned earlier, Thai restaurants
almost invariably invoke an almost tropical warmth, providing a January Thaw to both your body and your soul. And this, unfortunately, is where Thai Time fails miserably. The dining room is painted a dismal battleship grey, and what tiny amount of light that finds its way through the single window dies on the sill. On two visits, the heat in the dining room was apparently never on — on my second visit I was actually sitting next to the heater and touched it to find the radiator stone cold. And the service on my second visit, when I was the only person in the dining room at lunch time, was deplorable. Dishes went uncleared the whole meal. My fork disappeared at one point and I was unable to get a new one from the waitress sitting at the bar watching television for (I timed this) four minutes. I guess in the same way that some people have a face made for radio, Thai Time has service made for take-out.
“THE ROCHESTER PLAYS” LINK COLLEGE, COMMUNITY, AND THEATER [ FEATURE ] BY ERI C R E Z S N YA K
ochester has no shortage of live theater. The city is home to professional organizations like Geva; semi-professional theaters like Downstairs Cabaret, Blackfriars, and the JCC Centerstage; nearly two dozen community theater troupes; several children’s theaters and improv-comedy groups; and national Broadway tours courtesy of the Rochester Broadway Theatre League. But in a scene so crowded, some elements sometimes get lost. Consider our local college theater programs, as well as local playwrights, which rarely get significant community exposure. This month, a production by the University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program will bring those two elements of the local theater scene together, as the UR stages a full production of a local playwright’s work for the first time in anyone’s memory. Opening on Thursday, February 14, and continuing through February 24, the International Theatre Program will present “The Rochester Plays,” a two-part work by local writer Spencer Christiano. Although the plays are not necessarily set in Rochester, they allow the UR to tap into the pool of talent in its back yard. It also gives an upand-coming young playwright a larger and arguably higher-profile venue for his work.
he process that brought “The Rochester Plays” to UR started several years ago. John Borek, who has worked with Christiano at the Multi-Use Community Cultural Center on Atlantic Avenue since 2010, got some of Christiano’s plays to Nigel Maister, artistic director of the University of Rochester International Theatre Program. The plays sat on Maister’s desk for several months, but when he got around to picking them up, “I read them and thought they were quite interesting, and this guy has some real talent,” Maister says. The plays tackle complicated issues, telling the story of a young single mother and her relationships with two men: one an ex-con trying to turn his life around, the other a suspected sexoffender with a host of prejudices and tensions. “The play is very much about stereotypes and preconceptions and how we deal with 10 CITY FEBRUARY 6-12, 2013
them and how they evolve,” Christiano says. We’re conditioned by the media and society to identify with the struggling ex-con and root for his success, Christiano says, but also to despise and fear a known sex offender. “So what does that say about our preconceptions for one criminal? Why does the ex-con get our support while the sex offender gets demonized?” In April 2012, Maister invited Christiano to a meeting to discuss the International Theatre Spencer Christiano, an alum of Aquinas Institute and SUNY Brockport, is the author of “The Rochester Plays,” as well Program staging his works as an artist-in-residence at MuCCC.

one of the benefits of theater in an academic setting. Christiano says developing the plays under the auspices of UR has been a unique experience. “I’m not used to working with a budget,” Christiano says. “I mean, MuCCC’s great. It’s a black-box theater — a very large black-box theater — but there’s very little pressure at MuCCC to spend a lot of money on your production. The focus is on the work, the performances, and the community. The UR is basically an Ivy League school, so it has a budget, and they Nigel Maister is the artistic director of the University of Rochester spend it well. They International Theatre Program.

To explain those kinds of changes, Maister “There’s a certain kind of fearlessness that references the character Matthew, an ex-con comes with being a student artist.

And yet, lmost all of the significant changes despite the fact that almost all of the major came as a part of the rehearsal process with universities in and around Rochester have the student actors, which Maister says is theater programs — some of them quite
well regarded — they’re often ignored by the community at large. “When I get asked what I do for a living, and I say that I run the theater program at UR, people say, ‘There’s a theater program there?’ Nobody knows we exist,” Maister says. “Actually we do really good work, and really interesting work, and work that is different from what’s on stage at Geva or JCC or Blackfriars. We work at a very high level, even if the work is done by students.” “We do get people from the community to come see the shows, but I would love to see more — especially people who are interested in theater,” Maister says. “There’s a high level of artists, the plays are edgy and fun. We do musicals, we do comedies — we do everything. I’d like to think we’re a bit of a hidden gem, waiting to be discovered, waiting for our moment. Whether this will be our moment remains to be seen.” Following “The Rochester Plays” the UR’s International Theatre Program will present a Festival of One-Act Plays in March and then stage Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie” in April. “There’s a lot going on in college theater here that’s a real alternative, or an adjunct to what other theatrical life is happening in the city,” Maister says.
side from his work with “The Rochester Plays,” Christiano is an artist-in-residence at MuCCC, as well as the venue’s new play facilitator. Just as the UR is helping to give his work a broader audience, he is doing the same for other local playwrights. “MuCCC is this fantastic place for artists,” Christiano says. “There’s such a community there that will help you do whatever you want to do. There’s no fear — you can do new work and not worry about failure. You can do something edgy and not have to worry about offending people or getting blacklisted somehow. And everyone there just wants to help you succeed and help your play succeed, or whatever work you’re doing. MuCCC has been absolutely fundamental in my evolution as a playwright.”
As for his own future as a playwright, Christiano continues to have an interest in writing plays about Rochester. He doesn’t just want to be a local playwright; he wants his plays to deal with local issues. His upcoming projects include “Rails,” a trio of plays about Rochester’s railroads (specifically the Underground Railroad, the abandoned subway, and the Midtown Plaza monorail) and “Theater, Inc.,” which he describes as “an exploration of economic hardship and commercial compromise in theater, which is going to be a little more universal, but very local.” “I think that Rochester is a community that’s just rife with inspiration,” Christiano says. “If I was in another town I’d probably be writing about that town. But I think theater has a responsibility to speak to its community. It’s different from other media in that theater is always local. Theater is done because it’s here.” “Since I’m in Rochester and since I love Rochester, I’m interested in writing plays that will speak to a community,” Christiano says. “You can do the 7000th revival of ‘Guys & Dolls’ and the audience can love that, but where’s the lasting relationship? I can do a play for a Rochester audience and they can come see that, and after the show they can talk to me and tell me what they thought, and say what they like and didn’t like.” “I write about Rochester because I love Rochester, I love the people here,” he says. “I want Rochester audiences to feel this fantastic connection that I feel. It speaks to the audience that I want to speak to.”

On the rocks [ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Minor keys are like hot sauce on open wounds. When you want to kick that urge, that emotion, that thrill, that chill up a bit, nothing’s finer than going minor. Then there’s Rochester acoustic blues aficionado and virtuoso Fred Vine. Armed with a dreadnaught and a National Steel, Vine swings from the minor vine as the tunes dictate, but he maintains the music’s ominous burn when he sails into major territory. It’s all in the man’s fingertips. His finger style was loose yet flawless Thursday, January 31, at the Little Theatre Café. With legendary string bassist Brian Williams holding down the rhythm and walking the line, Vine struck me as a displaced ragtime piano player as much as he did a guitar slinger. The duo picked and plucked a handful of ragged gems as the audience nursed heat from coffee mugs. Waters got Muddy, as Vine and Williams traversed the dirt between The Delta, Chicago, and the snowy East Avenue corridor. After my wife and I dined as Mario’s guests Friday night, we headed to Abilene for a nightcap, which turned into a blasting cap with The Fools. Maybe it was the Rory Gallagher rave-up that spun me out right away, but I really

It was so cold I actually saw a lawyer with his hands in his own pockets. Anyway, Low Flying Planes was on stage to keep us warm with its hot rock. This is a band that flies the original flag for the most part and shows huge potential as it comes into its own. Tonally speaking it could stand to smooth things out a bit, but the set rocked otherwise. This Life followed with its cerebral, piano-driven alt-rock. The band has a serious slant amidst its clever compositions and people seemed torn between dancing and listening. You can do both, you know.

Music Have trumpet, will travel Mike Kaupa Quartet FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8 TOWER FINE ARTS CENTER, 180 HOLLEY ST., BROCKPORT 7:30 P.M. | $8-$15 | 395-2787, BROCKPORT.EDU [ FEATURE ] BY RON NETSKY
It’s 1990, and after playing concerts in Italy and Spain, trumpeter Mike Kaupa is at the top of the Eiffel Tower looking out over Paris with a band-mate. “I turned to him,” says Kaupa, “and said, ‘All we ever did to get here was practice. And we’re on the Eiffel Tower — woah!’” Kaupa still practices twice a day despite his busy schedule, teaching part-time at The Harley School and giving lessons at the Eastman School of Music’s Community Music School. His reputation brings him private students who have gone on to attend top schools like Berklee College of Music and New York University. He also leads workshops all over the country for the Institute for Creative Music. But most area jazz fans know Kaupa as a superb trumpeter with the Dave Rivello Ensemble and his own quartet, which plays at SUNY Brockport on Friday. Kaupa is soft-spoken, but don’t let that fool you. He’s capable of unleashing furious upper-register runs during solos. And, although he is a hard-bop player, he occasionally explores new frontiers, mic-ing his trumpet and putting it through a vocal processor pre-programed to add harmonies and effects. While growing up in Buffalo in the 1960’s
the music in Kaupa’s home was heavy on “West Side Story” and Frank Sinatra. He started piano lessons at the age of 6 but quit at 7. Then he fell under the spell of Leonard Bernstein and his “Young People’s Concerts” television series. “I asked my dad, ‘If I want to be a conductor, do I need to know how to play piano?’,” says Kaupa. “He said yes, so I started piano lessons again.” But he really had his heart set on a trumpet. His school allowed students to begin trumpet lessons at the age of 10 so, when he reached the magic age, his dad took him to the music store. He can still recall a strange premonition. “I knew when the 14 CITY FEBRUARY 6-12, 2013
case was opened what it would feel like to play it,” Kaupa says. Of course it took a long time before he could play it well. “I was lucky,” says Kaupa. “My brother knew some fingerings and I knew notes from piano lessons. At that age it’s glorious. I’m playing a few notes; I’m playing a tune with my saxplayer friend down the street. I didn’t hear that maybe it was out of tune. I just stuck with it.” At 16 his musical world expanded because of his high-school girlfriend and her family. “I was so lucky,” says Kaupa, “The Fadale family in Buffalo — they all played jazz.” His girlfriend’s mom had studied with Oscar Peterson and accompanied vocalist Mark Murphy. “I would go over to their house in West Seneca. From the sofa to the stereo there was a trail on the carpeting. It was worn out. They played ‘Kind of Blue’ for me — Miles Davis — and ‘My Funny Valentine.’ Up to that point I was a fan of Al Hurt, Herb Alpert, and Doc Severinsen. They’re great, but now I hear Miles Davis. They’re opening me up to new music.” The next stop on his musical journey was SUNY Fredonia. There was no jazz program but Kaupa and other players started a band. “There was no learning jazz for a grade, we learned from each other. We owned it,” he says. Kaupa moved into a house with musicians in Buffalo where he could jam until 4 a.m. and make connections. One of those led to a performance grant that took him to Rochester, where he quickly earned respect. Eastman professor Rayburn Wright offered to let him sit in on some jazz classes at the school, including one taught by Bill Dobbins that Kaupa found particularly valuable. Another significant educational experience came later. While he loves Davis’ playing, Kaupa’s main role models are saxophonists like Joe Lovano. “I like rhythmic playing,” says Kaupa. “If I can sound like that on trumpet, I’m happy.” When Kaupa met Lovano, he asked about the possibility of a lesson. “He says it will be 50 cents. I thought, Oh, yeah, 50 bucks. So we go to his loft where he plays drums like Elvin Jones and I play for him.” What did Kaupa learn? “He told me there’s more to life than eighth notes.”

Kaupa lives in Brighton with his wife, Diana
Loberant-Kaupa, who works at Harris Beach, teaches piano, and is an artist. He still travels widely, including an occasional trip Europe to play and teach. Kaupa visited almost every state, all of the provinces of Canada, Mexico, and Japan when he toured from 1988 to 1991 with the Glenn Miller Orchestra. But the biggest thrill of his career came from a phone call in 1993 asking if he was “free two nights next week.” Ray Charles’ band was between trumpet players and they had heard about Kaupa. “First night in Toronto, there I was. The second tune had a trumpet solo and you had to walk out front. That was very exciting, knowing that Ray Charles is comping for you while you’re playing a solo,” Kaupa says. Another time, in 1988, Mel Tormé joined the Miller band for a television special. “When they did ‘American Patrol,’ he said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to play drums on this one’ and he played
better than any drummer in that band. He was swinging so hard. Toward the end there’s a trumpet solo. So now I’m hooking up with Mel Tormé,” Kaupa says. Despite brushes with the big time, Kaupa appreciates the Rochester scene. “I tell people: walk through the entrance of Eastman, walk through the halls for 10 minutes, leave, and you’re a better musician than when you walked in.” Besides, a teacher once told him if you go to New York your competition is Wynton Marsalis and Tom Harrell, so you’d better take an application for the post office. Sure enough, at a music store in New York, Kaupa ran into a trumpet player who was in Maynard Ferguson’s band. “He was so excited because he’d passed the first round of tests for a post-office job,” Kaupa says.

ROCK | JOYWAVE
Joywave is a study in limitless atmosphere and pop beauty. The Rochester band cranks out epic salvos that skate the razor between electronica and indie rock. It’s positively euphoric in headphones or blasting out of the dashboard with the car pointed everywhere in particular. The band’s latest, “Koda Vista,” is a snappy pleasure platter in Kodak yellow, and one of the best-sounding releases to come out of this dirty little city along the mighty Genesee. Catch Joywave’s joy waves before it heads to Austin for SXSW 2013. But that’s not all; Soviet Dolls and New Archery play as well.

METAL | DORO
Few musical genres can set my pulse racing like German metal. German bands — Accept, Rammstein, Scorpions — tend to balance aggression and melodies in a way that skews them toward symphonic and danceable angles. While most metal groups make me want to raise my fist and yell, German bands make me want to sing opera and swing my partner. Teutonic rock goddess Doro Pesch does most of her singing in English and falls into this camp of power ballads and old-school anthems. A Doro concert is a good-natured and gentle immersion into the realm of metal, but Pesch — who reminds me of Victoria’s Secret inspired by Ronnie James Dio — isn’t afraid to kick out the jams either. Sister Sin opens. Doro plays Friday, February 8, 8 p.m. at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. $12-$15. frontgatetickets.com. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR Reggaeton w/DJ Carlos. La Copa Ultra Lounge, 235 W.

ROCK | DAUGHTRY
You see? Something good can actually come out of “American Idol.” Season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry went on to form an eponymous band and release an eponymous record in 2006. The album went straight to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling more than 4 million copies. Daughtry’s sound is a quasi-throwback to the late 90’s melodic, alternative-rock movement that arose in the wake of its heavier predecessors. Dig. And there’s a hometown homeboy link to the band as Uncle Plum’s Elvio Fernandes has played keyboards in the band since 2011. Three Doors Down and Aranda also perform.

THROUGH FEBRUARY 10 BLACKFRIARS THEATRE, 727 E. MAIN ST. $27 | 454-1260, BFTIX.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
Playwright David Mamet got straight to the point when he titled his 1977 work “A Life in the Theatre.” The play, a combination comedy/drama, gives the audiences snapshots of two theater actors at very different points in their careers. One, John, is young excited, sure that he’s on the way up, eager to learn (at first, at least). The other, Robert, has clearly been doing this for quite a long time, and while he at first enjoys having a kind of protégé to mold and play off of, he quickly grows disillusioned by all of the crushing little disappointments brought by both life and career. It’s an interesting work in that it doesn’t really include any kind of plot or resolution – it just shows you what it’s like to live this life. It’s decidedly less glamorous than TV or movies, or even theatrical works, would have us believe. The show primarily features backstage discussions between the two actors as they talk about their own work, their cast mates, critics, agents, auditions, wardrobe, scripts, and the like. Things start out sunny enough, and it’s not a
logical leap to suspect that Robert has interests in John that extend beyond just professional development. But those exchanges inevitably turn sour, first on Robert’s part and then on John’s, so that the bright back-and-forth banter marked by that signature Mamet dialogue becomes laced with spite. Interspersed with these vignettes are scenes of the actors performing in actual stage plays – a whole bunch of different plays, it seems – most of which go hilariously wrong due to missed sound cues, forgotten dialogue, or prop malfunctions. Anyone involved in the theater will probably groan in empathy as the actors do their best to soldier on, while fans of the theater will get a better perspective on just how delicate the craft is. And how stressful it must be to devote your life to it. David Runzo directs the show at Blackfriars, and he gets solid performances out of both of his actors, Fred Nuernberg as Robert and Dave Andreatta as John. Nuernberg is especially impressive in the play’s darker moments, which make Robert totally sympathetic even though he behaves like an ass for the majority of the show. Nuernberg is totally possessed of himself even as he plays an egotist – an egotist who may have absolutely no reason to think so highly of himself, given the
glimpses we get into his professional abilities. But you really do feel for the guy, even after he wastes perfectly good KFC in the midst of a backstage fit. Dave Andreatta delivers a very mannered performance as John. He seems prim and precise, even downright chipper in the beginning. That changes over time, as his ambition grows and his patience with Robert wanes. Andreatta is quite good at his few dramatic monologues and you almost wish that you could see more of them. He does need to work on projecting his voice, however. In the beginning of the play he was difficult to hear, especially over the theater’s heating unit. One of the issues with the play is that the actors have to undergo multiple quick changes, as scenes last only a few minutes apiece. Sometime it’s an easy transition, but with others they have to put on entirely new costumes and reappear on the other side of the stage. In the Blackfriars production I saw, some of these pauses went on longer than they should have, but that’s a function of the script more than the direction. I also found some of the incidental music terribly distracting, specifically the aggressively synthesized bits that could have been used in an “After School Special” in the 1980’s. It’s important to go into “A Life in the Theatre” not expecting a full story, but merely a character study. At first the scenes may feel disjointed; the script jumps from play to play, discussion to discussion with little or no connective tissue. And even seemingly major conflicts between the two characters are simply forgotten the next time we see them. But that is, it seems, very much life in the theater. These are people who willingly spend their lives pretending to be somebody else – anybody else. It takes a special breed to choose that line of work, and chances are we don’t appreciate them the way we should. Go out and hug an actor today.

ART | “SILVER AND WATER” AND “DUTCH CONNECTION” Two new exhibitions will open at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) this week. On Friday, February 8, spring comes early to East Avenue when the mansion’s conservatory and palm house will be filled with thousands of flowering bulbs for the annual exhibition “The Dutch Connection.” The event follows Mr. Eastman’s tradition of filling the house with blooms, including tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, freesias, amaryllis, and azaleas. Tropical orchids will be on display courtesy of the Genesee Region Orchid Society. It remains open through February 24. On Saturday, February 9, the new photo exhibition “Silver and Water” will open in the Eastman House’s Brackett Clark and South galleries. The installation, which consists of 19 very large prints by Los Angeles artist Lauren Bon, links the mountains of Southern California and the historic photographic industry of Rochester, NY, through an exploration of their shared connections to two basic elements: silver and water. Silver and water refer to the interconnected settlement of the American West, financing, mining, photography, the silver screen, and Hollywood. The prints are a product of the Liminal Camera, a gigantic pinhole device made out of a shipping container that contains both the camera operators and a processing facility. See the show through May 28. The Eastman House is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is $5-$12, and free to members and kids age 12 and under.

“Tundra Pearl (White-Tailed Ptarmigan)” is a huddled, downy bird on a soft gray, almost shimmering ground, with glowing peach light around its shadow. It is strange to say out loud, but the glistening quality of the work nearly audibly emanates from the muffled silence of the scene.
“Shattered Silence (Red-Tailed Hawk and Crows)” by Ray Easton is part of the Oxford Gallery’s current exhibit. PHOTO PROVIDED
Feathers and focus found Ray Easton/Jean K. Stephens THROUGH FEBRUARY 23 OXFORD GALLERY, 267 OXFORD ST. 271-5885, OXFORDGALLERY.COM TUESDAY-FRIDAY NOON-5 P.M., SATURDAY 10 A.M.-5 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
The current exhibit at Oxford Gallery showcases the current works of two skillful Rochester-based artists, Ray Easton and Jean K. Stephens, whose gentle reverence for nature lends a breathtaking sweetness to each work. Through their eyes, we see nuance and minutiae as crucial and worthy of our attention. The artists have in common a supremely sensitive focus, and depict studied encounters with wild fauna and stumble-upon moments with fragile natural relics. When I visited the gallery to see the new show, owner Jim Hall said he was surprised by the compatibility of the pair, by how the works complemented one another. Ray Easton was a student of Jean K. Stephens’ husband, Bill Stephens, at Webster High School. Bill is another artist represented by Oxford Gallery, and Hall describes him as having had many students who are good practicing artists. Though Easton’s acrylic portraits of birds in their native element or in a faded atmosphere are near photorealistic in skill, there is a sort of mythic story quality to the scenes, and the birds are given individual personalities. For all of the crisp-capture of the works, there is also a breathing motion. 24 CITY FEBRUARY 6-12, 2013
Birds are quite reptilian, not only in physical nature, but in behavior as well. And though humans find projecting our own emotions and experiences on mammals to be irresistible, it is a bit harder to make those connections with most birds because they are so alien. Easton shares with viewers the fascination of tiny clockwork-esque, lizard-like beasties, cautious and seemingly about to dart away in his portraits of house wrens and in “The Hedgerow (White-Breasted Nuthatch),” in which we see a wee bird clinging vertically to a scrap of lichen-covered bark, tiny claws clutching. The larger birds of prey and scavengers are calculating and command feelings of awe. In Easton’s “Tales of the Tower,” a dizzinessinducing Kodak Tower pops up into the sky at a dusky hour, and startled pigeons take wing to avoid a darting peregrine falcon. The subject in “Hot Pursuit (Peregrine Falcon)” is caught in a sharp dive, and the subtle shapes in Easton’s darkening sky frame and emphasize the motion. In “Shattered Silence (Red-Tailed Hawk and Crows)” a glowingly vibrant blue-green atmosphere is soupy around a rough-bark tree, on which a hunched crow and annoyed hawk confront each other on a branch, and a second crow looks on from above. Easton includes feathered fellows found between the extremes of the speck-like swallows and the predation-prone. Hall finds Easton’s “Ladies First (Mallards)” particularly captivating in that it has an almost abstract quality — the heavy texture seen here is atypical for the artist — and an interesting perspective. Usually Easton has the viewers looking up at or across to his birds, but here we look down at the ducks as their velvety heads tentatively reach for strewn corn kernels.
If the two artists took a walk through the woods together, Easton would likely cast his stare up and around to the sky and trees, while Stephens would most certainly be looking down, careful of where she stepped. She would focus on finding paths and patterns within forms, and collecting the firm armatures of nature’s skeletal remnants in stone, shell, and bone. Only a couple of works in this show represent Stephens’ typical sweeping scenes that celebrate the wistful beauty of Upstate New York. “View from Bald Hill” is a lovely scene of a road cutting through trees and rolling hills. In many of this show’s works, the artist zooms in to focus on minutiae found in nature, often arranging forms to play with their meaning and subtly prod the viewer down her path of meditation. “Pearl” depicts an egg resting in a seashell, a theme of potential, preciousness, and fragility repeated in more gentle light in “Nestled,” and again in “Endearment,” in which crab claws frame yet another egg-withina-shell, this time atop a letter dated 1881. The bulk of Stephens’ oil paintings and pencil drawings in this particular show focuses on minutiae found in nature, the oftoverlooked white noise of the woods and trails, whether her masterful depiction of the beauty found in the forms of the craggy and cracked stone beneath our feet, or the repeated heartshape found in various natural forms. Of the former group, the show includes “At the Point,” in which Stephens has used vibrantly glowing blue details to make deep shadows even richer and to complement the warmer spectrum of color in the stone. “Iron Pool” is rusty in color, with a slight shimmer at the edge of the water. “Tumbled Path” zooms even closer to the smaller scales that are all around us but nearly invisible, and Stephens has depicted countless small stones in zigzagging paths between larger stones, with a vast range of color in patches of sunlight and shadow. Included the heart-shaped group are “Bone Heart,” formed of what looks to be two ribs, and “The Ennead,” which is a grid grouping of nine stones, each with a vague heart shape made much more obvious by the grouping. The dual fragility and hardiness of the symbol are summed up perfectly in the weathered “Sea Glass Heart,” a shape of delicate green translucence and light, and the sturdy “Blue Stone Heart,” with folds in its pitted, worn surface.

FESTIVAL | LAKESIDE WINTER CELEBRATION By now, many of us are probably ready to stay inside and just hibernate through the rest of winter. But the resilient Rochesterians who want to fully embrace the tundra can frolic and freeze together at the 29th Annual Lakeside Winter Celebration, held on Sunday, February 10, at Ontario Beach Park (4800 Lake Ave.) and the Port of Rochester Terminal (1000 N. River St.). This year’s celebration includes Rec on the Move, a recreation center with winter activities like hockey and snow bowling; the Lake Ontario Wine Festival, with $5 wine samples from across New York State; the annual Chilly Chili Challenge noon-3 p.m.; and a snow sculpture contest with cash prizes, centered on the all-too-appropriate theme of “Winter.” But for those who literally want to dive right into winter, the highlight will be the 13th Annual Polar Plunge at noon, with more than 1,000 brave souls jumping into Lake Ontario to raise funds for the New York Special Olympics. The Lakeside Winter Celebration runs 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Most events are free. For a full list of the day’s activities, visit cityofrochester.gov/wintercelebration. —BY JASON SILVERSTEIN

THEATER | “THE ADDAMS FAMILY” It’s hard to find a tale of murder, mayhem, and the macabre that the entire family can enjoy. But fear not: everyone can rejoice in the morbidity of “The Addams Family,” the classical comic strip turned into a hit Broadway musical that has now embarked on a national tour that brings it to the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) through Sunday, February 10. The musical, based on the ghoulish cartoon family created by Charles Addams and written by “Jersey Boys” creators Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, depicts the death-obsessed family attempting to appear “normal” when the teenaged Wednesday brings a boyfriend home for dinner. “The Addams Family” runs this week on Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 & 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1 & 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $32.50 to $67.50, and can be purchased through rbtl.org or by calling 222-5000. — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN 134 North Main St. 394-1381. woodlibrary.org.

veterans, their careers provide an unusual context for their activities in the film. The picture opens intercutting between “Stand Up Guys” Val (Pacino) going through the procedures (R), DIRECTED BY FISHER STEVENS of release from prison and his best friend NOW PLAYING Doc (Walken) painting landscapes in his shabby apartment, suggesting a drab sort One of the pleasures of the new movie of freedom contrasting with the gray walls “Stand Up Guys” involves the connections of confinement. When Doc meets Val at between the roles the actors occupy and the the prison gates the action starts along a actors themselves. The three stars, Al Pacino, predictable path, with Val learning how much Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin, play the world has changed during his years in the aging criminals who reunite after working clink, and wanting to make up for at least together many years ago; watching them some of that lost time with booze and sex and in action, no viewer could ignore the fact drugs. That quest leads to some sequences that the trio themselves have logged decades of silly farce when Val chugs down a bottle in front of the camera. Veterans playing of Viagra so he can perform in his favorite brothel and ends up with an enduring erection that requires desperate treatment. In the midst of the comical events, the characters and action move within the shadow of death. A true stand-up guy, Val took the fall for his colleagues in Christopher Walken, Alan Arkin, and Al Pacino in “Stand Up Guys.”
crime, serving 28 years without ratting on his friends, but a mob boss named Claphands (really), played by Mark Margolis, intends to have him killed in revenge for the death of his son in the job that put Val in prison; making it worse, Doc is the hitman. Resigned to the task, Doc allows Val, who quickly realizes the situation, to enjoy his hours of freedom, his last hours of life. The pace picks up when Val and Doc steal a muscle car from some thugs, rescue their former driver, Hirsch (Alan Arkin), from a nursing home, and embark on a spree. Hirsch retains his old skills at the wheel, speeding all over Los Angeles, evading police pursuit, and enjoying his own visit to the brothel. Along the way the script piles on scenes and incidents to enliven the simple plot — a sweet moment when Val dances with a young woman in a bar, the rescue of a damsel in distress, revenge on a crew of thugs, and some time with a lovely young waitress (Addison Timlin) with a particular connection to Doc. The mixture of comedy and violent action provides enough substance for the movie and Doc’s dilemma contributes an unusual basis for suspense, but much of its entertainment grows from the performances of the three old pros impersonating three old pros. With some assistance from the crusty Arkin, Pacino supplies much of the silliness, but also articulates some serious philosophy

A testament to love [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“Amour” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY MICHAEL HANEKE OPENS FRIDAY
about their mutual past and their delicate present; Walken behaves very much like his straight man, maintaining a deadpan in numerous close-ups, saying little, supporting his craziness, but concealing a genuine anguish over his assignment and his personal situation. The actors, who have never appeared together before this movie, create a striking contrast — the wild, loquacious Val opposed to the steady, taciturn Doc — and a good team in crime. The characters finally solve their problems in a resolution that combines a good deal of sentimentality with an explosion of gunfire and glory. Both Val and Doc achieve something like redemption in a climactic sequence right out of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Whatever elements of comedy and Western it employs and whatever else it accomplishes, “Stand Up Guys” demonstrates its indebtedness to the tradition of the gangster flick. Gangster films are brother films, and that relationship clearly defines the connection between Val and Doc; they also tend to follow a pattern of implacable fate, the doom that awaits Val at the hands of his friend, and actually awaits them both. It even includes the conventional scene of the gangsters acquiring new clothes, though in this case the pair break into a store and dress up in some classy stolen suits, a nice comical touch. It’s not “Little Caesar “or “The Godfather,” but it’s fun.
Austrian director Michael Haneke has become notorious over the years for his clinical, detached style of directing, which he often employs while telling stories that evoke a visceral, often intensely negative reaction in viewers. Whether it be the brutal torture of a family in his infamous “Funny Games” or the portrait of mentally unstable, masochistic music professor in “The Piano Teacher,” Haneke delights (some might say sadistically) in provoking his audience and upending expectations. He presents the most disturbing aspects of human behavior, presumably in the service of making a larger point about society as a whole, though more often it appears that he just likes getting a rise out of people. It’s tempting to say that he’s up to his old tricks once again with his latest film, “Amour.” And maybe he is, as he chronicles the slow, undignified death of a sweet, old woman in grueling detail. But despite the unpleasant subject matter, “Amour,” winner of the Palm d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and now a multiple Academy
Jean-Louis Trintignant in “Amour.” PHOTO COURTESY LES FILMS DU LOSANGE
Award nominee, emerges as one of the most moving and emotional cinematic experiences of the year. Veterans of the French New Wave, Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant play Anne and Georges, two retired music teachers, now in their 80s. They’ve obviously had a long, happy life together, and they’re still very much in love. They lead a quiet existence, filling their time with a shared passion for art and culture. But one morning over breakfast, Anne suddenly goes catatonic, freezing in mid-conversation, the light suddenly gone from her eyes. Georges panics, with good reason, but practically before he has a chance to act, his wife returns to him with no memory of what transpired. Concerned, they see a doctor, and learn that Anne has a blocked carotid artery that requires surgery. The diagnosis is only the first signal of her declining health and, when the surgery leaves half of her body paralyzed, it’s clear that Georges and Anne are facing the beginning of the end. Haneke has insisted in interviews that his intentions with “Amour” are sincere, explaining that he based the events of the film around his own personal experiences with an aunt who had become quite ill and suffered greatly. I’m choosing to take him at his word, but others might not be convinced. There’s certainly enough evidence to support the contrary. The first few minutes of the film lend themselves rather easily to the more cynical interpretation. The opening credits unfold in complete silence, punctuated at their end by policeman violently smashing open the door to the couple’s apartment, where they find Anne’s lifeless body neatly laid out upon the bed (it’s over this image that the film’s title, “Love,” appears). This is followed immediately by the flashback that makes up the bulk of the film, beginning with a curious two-minute shot, taken from the stage at a classical music concert we never actually see, with the camera aimed out at
the audience as they peer right back at us through the darkness of the theater. But it’s always a trap to play the game of inferring a director’s hidden intentions with a film, pretending to know without a doubt exactly what message they’re trying to send. In the end, what matters is the meaning that the audience finds in the film. Here, Haneke’s distanced viewpoint doesn’t feel detached, so much as he’s trusting the subject matter to speak for itself. He takes his time, using long, quiet takes that allow scenes to unfold slowly (save for one, vividly staged nightmare sequence). We don’t need extreme closeups on Riva or Trintignant’s pain to feel empathy. Most of us have lived through, or been close to someone who’s lived through events similar to these, and Haneke trusts his audience enough to not ladle on the sentimentality. Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignant each play their roles with all the warmth and humanity that they require; they’re each legends for a reason. Riva has been getting the lion’s share of the awards season attention, but it’s Trintignant’s performance as devoted husband Georges that is the true soul of the film. “Amour” is often difficult to watch, and it takes a skilled director to create a film of such immense sadness and not make it feel like a soul-crushing ordeal to sit through. Instead the film has a vitality and respect for life coursing through its veins, and that’s largely due to the incredible performances Haneke is able to get from his actors. It’s a film that understands the emotional and physical demand that it takes to care for someone, in sickness and in health. It could be seen as its own sort of horror film, one which documents, in clear-eyed detail, our worst fears and an inescapable part of life that most of us would rather not think about. But ultimately it’s a testament to what it really means to love someone for a lifetime.

Old School Charm Near the University 421 Rockingham Built in 1929 and mimicking the American Foursquare form, the house at 421 Rockingham Street has loads of charm. Centrally located in the desirable Highland Park Neighborhood of Rochester, it’s close to the University of Rochester, to I-490 and I-590, and the commercial amenities in the Swillburg and South Wedge neighborhoods. It is also within walking distance of the magnificent Highland Park—a bonus during the Lilac Festival (and every season of the year)! The first thing that catches your eye about the property (which is 1,476 square feet) is the open porch with wooden latticework columns—perfect for watching the world go by on a lazy summer evening. Brick steps lead up to the front door and stoop, with the porch set off to the side. As you enter the house into the main foyer there are hardwood floors with an inlay pattern. To the right is a cozy living room lit by a bay window and small leaded glass windows. Built-in bookcases with leaded glass doors flank the attractive wood-burning fireplace. Beyond the living room is a small, but serviceable dining room with hardwood floors and more leaded glass windows. A pleasant eat-in kitchen awaits you as you pass through the dining room. The kitchen is unusually large, with plenty of storage space and a large coat closet, and awaits a personal touch to bring it up to date and take full advantage of the large space. At the back
of the kitchen are a half-bath and the door to a private, enclosed backyard. The hallway through the kitchen leads you back to the main foyer and to the rooms upstairs. The generous master bedroom boasts another bay window, a ceiling fan, and beautiful, original glass doorknobs and unpainted wood doors (which are featured throughout the house). The two smaller bedrooms provide ample closet space. The wonderful thing about the second floor is that it contains an enclosed sleeping porch for adventurous children to explore, as well as an unfinished attic which can either be converted into a bedroom, or used to increase the amount of storage space. The bottom line is that this is an amazing house in a wonderful area of Rochester. For anyone who is willing to put in a little time, and lots of love, it will pay huge dividends. It has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, a detached single car garage, and is listed at $149,900.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
California activist Jonathan Frieman finally got his day in court in January, but a Marin County judge quickly rejected his argument that he is entitled to use the state’s carpool lanes accompanied only by a sheath of corporate papers in the passenger seat. (During the 2012 Republican primaries, Mitt Romney famously asserted a corporation’s general right under the law to be treated as a “person.”) The judge decided that the state legislature’s carpool law was intended only to reduce traffic clutter and that driving with no passenger except corporate papers was unrelated to that goal. Frieman told reporters that he had been carrying the papers around for years, hoping to be challenged.
Wall Street Journal dispatch -- because it can help philanderers keep their affairs from lovers’ prying eyes. The phones lack sophisticated tracking features -- plus, a buried “privacy” mode gives off only stealth signals when lovers call and leaves no trace of calls, texts or emails. A senior executive for Fujitsu said, “If Tiger Woods had (this phone), he wouldn’t have gotten in trouble.” — China’s national legislature passed a law in December to establish that people have a duty to visit their aged parents periodically. China’s rapid urbanization has not developed nursing homes and similar facilities to keep pace with the population, and sponsors of the law said it would give the parents a legal right to sue their children for ignoring them.
— The U.S. Congress may suffer dismal popularity ratings (less savory than head lice, according to one survey), but it is saintly compared to India’s legislatures, which contain six accused rapists at the state level and two in the national parliament. Thirty-six local officials, as well, have been charged with sexual assault (according to India’s Association for Democratic Reforms). In fact, the association reported in December that 162 of the lower house of Parliament’s 552 members currently face criminal charges. The problem is compounded by India’s notoriously paralyzed justice system, which practically ensures that the charges will be unresolved for years, if not decades. — Many Japanese men seem to reject smartphones in favor of a low-tech 2002 Fujitsu cellphone, according to a January
Generally, clients are held to account for their lawyers’ errors because the lawyers are their “agents,” but death row inmates might be treated differently, for they usually do not select or pay for their lawyers -- and because the stakes are so high. Alabama, though, looks at the problem unsympathetically, according to a January New York Times report. When an Alabama death row inmate misses an appeals-filing deadline only because of his lawyer’s error (in murder client Ronald Smith’s case, only because lawyer C. Wade Johnson was an oftenincapacitated methamphetamine addict), the client forgoes the appeal. The Smith case is currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. (Alabama also remains the only state in which judges overrule juries and impose the death penalty instead of life in prison.)
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 32 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take a walk on the wild side, and try something or someone altogether different. You’ll be attracted to someone unique or who comes from a different background. Explore the possibilities and you will discover how diverse you can be when it comes to your personal lifestyle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take it slow when it comes to love and romance. You are far better off getting to know someone before you bump things up to an intimate level. Being cautious will help you sidestep a potentially difficult situation that can affect your status.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everyone will be as flippant or flirtatious as you, but that doesn’t mean you won’t attract attention. Keep your eyes open for someone watching you from a distance. The potential to develop a deep and meaningful relationship is in the stars. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You need to get out and socialize more or get involved in a hobby or activity that will bring you in contact with someone as warm, affectionate and loving as you. A serious commitment is likely if you make a move on someone sharing your likes and dislikes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You need a change of place, pace or comrades. Try a different form of entertainment, and you will find someone just as dynamic as you. Meeting your match is likely -- but only if you are willing to go into unfamiliar territory. Expand your interests. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll have better luck finding a suitable mate through work-related events. However, this may create some problems if you don’t go through the proper channels. Back away if the person you are attracted to moves too quickly or is overindulgent. Protect your position and choose wisely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the initiative to voice your opinion and share in the conversation at social gatherings, and you will pique someone’s interest. A relationship based on differences will be difficult to resist, but it will be just as awkward to find common ground. Enjoy what you both have to offer. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your initial attraction to someone isn’t likely to be physical. A feeling of closeness and an attraction to someone’s morals, ethics and principles can easily lead to true, deep, unconditional love. Let your relationship
develop naturally, and your physical passion will grow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Too much action in the romance department can lead to trouble. Be careful not to let someone from your past jump back into your life without addressing the problems you encountered in the past. Deception and disillusionment are present. Slow down and consider the pros and cons. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll be attracted to someone offering something unique or unusual from any of your past partners. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little before making
up your mind. A change may not be to your liking once you get a taste of what’s to come. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are likely to attract someone who isn’t being honest with you. Before becoming intimate, find out about this person’s background and whether this partnership is a good fit for you. You may want to go it alone a little bit longer. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get down to the facts before you indulge in an emotional situation that has the potential to go either way. Honesty and a plan to move forward will be your best bet and will work well for both you and the object of your affection.
