The interview with MCC President Anne Kress was most enlightening (“Anne Kress and the Reinvention of MCC,” News). From a taxpayer’s viewpoint, it’s a little different. When the community was first presented with funding a community college with low tuition for low- and middle-income students, we all jumped on board. Kress’s statement that they were going to create a program that could lead to transferring into a four-year program blew me away. I thought that was the purpose of our community college: an inexpensive two-year degree that could be transferred to any college when the student chose a career path that they had interest in, or a two-year program that they could use to get a living-wage job. Hopefully they would be encouraged to take evening or on-line courses to further their education while not incurring debt. However, the last decade taxpayers have watch as they have been charged more and more taxes to pay for dormitories, athletic fields, a fitness center to rival any private club in the city, a student union with state-of-the-art food service and coffee bar. What the taxpayer wanted was a community college with highly skilled instructors and professors. Above-average professors and teachers demand higher wages; this is 2 CITY

where taxpayer money should have been spent. You can sit in a stripped-down classroom with your brown-bag lunch and listen to a lecture from someone with a doctorate from Harvard. That is what we envisioned. Those in charge of the community college decided they wanted to compete with the biggies. The justification for these expenditures, they would tell us, is they wanted the student to have the full college experience. If the lowand middle-income parents could have afforded the full college experience, they would have sent their child to one. Colleges have become businesses, big businesses; they now compete for the students. The administrators’ egos want to be associated with first-rate, top colleges and try to make their campus a showplace instead of a learning place. They complain that the students coming from the city school district are not prepared, so the college needs additional funding to get them able to do college-entrance level. Meanwhile, they recruit students from out of county, out of state, and out of country for students. They encourage local students to borrow money for their classes. Ask these local students who are working as waitress, clerks, and retail if they owe student debt for their community college education. Those dormitories and athletic fields must be paid for by somebody. Did students get their money’s worth? Get back on track. Have as your goal providing an education for a reasonable fee.

The teachers’ suit
Teach and you’ll understand. Educate yourself on education and the two-way street that it is. The union sues because it cares about education as it needs to be. We are the doctors of education. We didn’t roll into the position after two interviews. Masters degrees and years of experience bring an enlightenment that the general public isn’t going to understand very easily. MASTER TEACHER
Don’t forget that 40 percent of a high school teacher’s rating is based on how the rest of the school performs on exams in other classes. So a social studies teacher can lose points based on poor chemistry scores. Even better, a phys ed teacher’s rating is tied to scores on math tests, science tests, etc. TEACHER
I teach in a school with 80 percent free and reduced lunches. One year my students passed the reading test with 100 percent. The next year they passed with 65 percent. I’m a National Board Certified teacher, and have been evaluated as a distinguished teacher. I worry that with all my years of study and experience, I might be deemed ineffective, especially with the poorly written standards that we are facing. The Common Core standards and their associated standardized tests are absurd! We now have kindergarteners being required to do homework about alliteration. How in the world can we expect to tie teacher effectiveness to such inappropriate standards? S.E. KNUTSEN
On “Teacher’s Union Sues Over Evaluations,” News: “Urbanski stressed
Rochester teachers embrace accountability....” Oh, sure. As long as by “embrace” you mean “shirk.” Maybe it’s time for city taxpayers and students to sue the union.
I think taxpayers and students should sue corporate America for not paying taxes and screwing students for their six-figure debt and test-test mentality. All while hedge fund and privatizers take in millions. Who’s the one taking advantage of students?
Support is crucial for people with mental illness
In response to “Mental Illness: Roads to Wellness”: It is clear through the personal stories shared that mental health recovery is just as possible as recovery from a physical illness. The people who shared their unique experiences with mental illness all had one thing in common: supportive relationships. It seems that all too often there is a stigma around mental illness that causes those experiencing it to be misunderstood and often distanced from community connections and support. The truth is that one in four Americans has a diagnosable mental illness, and this reality affects us all. Through the power of supportive friendships, Compeer Rochester serves as an additional community resource and a bridge to enhanced wellness and community integration for those with social and emotional barriers, including mental illness. While being diagnosed with a mental health issue can be upsetting, there is hope for recovery through understanding and connection. It is encouraging to see articles like this that address some of the stereotypes around mental illness and celebrate the recovery process. It is now up to us as a community to make sure these ideas do not stay on the page but are communicated and acted upon for improved services and supports. KATIE KREUTTER

College for prisoners?
On State Senator Ted O’Brien’s opposition to Governor Cuomo’s plan to provide college classes to prison inmates: Ted O’Brien
is trying to appease voters. Cuomo is spending a little to save a lot. This education gives hope and help to people. Long term, crime and numbers in prisons will go down. Cops and wardens will inevitably lose their jobs. And this is a GOOD thing! It may not seem fair to educate prisoners, but if this leads to lower taxes and less crime, then I’m all for it. MIKE BRUTON
“Ted O’Brien is trying to appease voters here.” In other words, he’s representing his constituents, correct? ROCHESTER MUSICIAN
So giving free college degrees to prisoners is an “investment” to keep them off unemployment and welfare? How about we also give them jobs, cars to get to and from work, and free mortgages, too? We have to spend tax dollars to house, guard, clothe, and feed prisoners. We shouldn’t have to give them free college degrees. JEFF
And the race begins! While O’Brien has a Democratic enrollment advantage, Rich Funke is well known from his decades on 10NBC (I watched him for years until his retirement) and seems to be peddling the “reasonable conservative” message. Can he do what Maggie did and make the leap from local celebrity to politician? This will be an interesting race. SEAN

Our anonymous comments “I really don’t think you should allow commenting by anonymous commenters.” –Martin Edic. “I agree with Martin Edic. Anyone commenting should identify themselves.” –James Bearden. “I also agree that City Newspaper does a disservice to its readership by posting anonymous comments.” – Larry Champoux. Let me take time off this week from giving you my opinion and ask for yours: What do you think about anonymous comments on our website and in our reader Feedback column? Many of what used to be called letters to the editor carry the writer’s name, whether they’re land-mail submissions or postings on our website. But an increasing number do not. And that’s particularly true of the online comments, where my guess is that more than half are posted anonymously. Many of us, myself included, feel far more comfortable with comments whose writers are willing to sign their names. But the internet has brought a different culture to public discussions, for good or for ill (and I think it’s both). The idea is that the internet is freewheeling, informal, and hyper-public and that media websites can serve as limitless town squares, where people can get up on soap boxes and rant, gather in small groups to discuss everything from important public issues to the latest bar opening, and slap up anonymous flyers proclaiming… whatever they like. The downside, of course, is that people do exactly that, posting rambling, nonsensical comments; racist comments; personal attacks on other readers. One way to stop that is to require readers to register before they can post a comment. But that can make the process cumbersome, eliminating the spontaneity. Another solution: require readers to post their comments through Facebook or to post them with a real name rather than an alias. But that assumes that every poster is being truthful. And given the increasing privacy concerns about the internet, some readers are simply unwilling to make their names public online. Our solution here has been to allow anonymity but to moderate all comments. Our editors review the posted comments regularly, and we delete offensive ones. While that’s time consuming, we want to do what we can to encourage reader interaction and discussion. We’re getting
If you’d like to shut down all debate,” asked one reader, “that’s fine; it’s your paper. But what would you gain in the end?” more comments now than we did prewebsite, and the online posts are frequently some of the most interesting and most informative we receive. Still, we wrestle with the issue of anonymity. And after reading the posts I quoted at the beginning of this piece, I added a comment noting that our staff was discussing our policy. In response came these posts: “Do people who value privacy have nothing to contribute to a ‘serious discussion about contemporary topics’? An idea or argument should stand or fall on its merits, not on the biography or personality or popularity of the speaker.” – Proudly Anonymous While We Still Can. “I certainly stand behind my point of view. However in this debate, I could lose my job and pension because of my honesty. Not to mention, as close as Buffalo, unions still resort to violence for what they call ‘scabs.’ How’s that for freedom of speech? There are other debates this country desperately needs to have, like the one about race. Unfortunately we can’t, even with a black president. I am a person who does look at all sides of an issue before making up my mind. After all, here I am reading and commenting on a newspaper that makes my blood boil. If you’d like to shut down all debate, that’s fine; it’s your paper. But what would you gain in the end?” – Johnny. All of these posts were on a guest column about the value of unions, and “Johnny’s” anonymity may be understandable. We also hear frequently from teachers about school district concerns. They might not comment if they had to sign their name. So who is right? Edic, Bearden, and Champoux? Or Proudly Anonymous and Johnny? If we blocked anonymity, would we gain more than we would lose? We’d love to hear from you.

Possible aid boost for Rochester The State Assembly has approved a one-time $12.4 million boost in aid for the City of Rochester. But it’s unclear if the money would be included in the state’s final budget. Rochester gets the lowest aid per capita of the major upstate cities, while being required to give its school district more.
No jailhouse scholars
Democratic State Senator Ted O’Brien said he opposes Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to give state prison inmates access to college degree programs. O’Brien said the state shouldn’t spend taxpayer money on classes for inmates when “rising tuition rates are preventing so many hardworking young
people who have done nothing wrong from going to college.”

Funke joins Senate race
Warren: Project board must go
Mayor Lovely Warren says she wants all members of the board overseeing the $1.2 billion renovation program in the city school district replaced. She also called for the replacement of the construction firm, Gilbane Building. Citing the results of performance audits, Warren says the project has cost overruns, delays, and is not meeting requirements to hire women and minority contractors. Warren tried to remove Bob Brown, the board’s vice chair, but couldn’t do so without the consent of schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas. City Council President Loretta Scott has requested a state audit of the project.
Former WHEC news anchor Rich Funke announced his candidacy for State Senate last week. PHOTO BY JEREMY MOULE
Republican leaders say Rich Funke’s name recognition and journalism background, combined with his familiarity with state issues and his record of community service make him the ideal candidate for State Senate. Funke announced last week that he’ll seek the GOP endorsement to run for the 55th District seat against Democratic incumbent Ted O’Brien. The race could be crucial in deciding which party controls the chamber. Funke, a former anchor for WHEC news, said at the press conference that he wants to push for relief from taxes and from unfunded state mandates. He also said he wants to eliminate some business regulations, get more state aid for local projects, and repeal the SAFE Act — Governor Andrew Cuomo’s signature gun control legislation. “I am not a politician,” Funke said. “I’ve had my career and I loved every minute of it. I’m not interested in going to Albany to be something. I’m going to Albany to do something.”

In response to Funke’s announcement, O’Brien says he’s delivered tax relief to middle-class families and businesses, and secured job-creating investments in the district. “I’m proud of my record and am confident that the hardworking men and women of Monroe and Ontario counties will re-elect me this fall,” he says. Democrats have an enrollment advantage in the 55th District. And in 2012, O’Brien beat Republican Sean Hanna in a contentious race. But Republicans held the seat for approximately 15 years before that, although the district had slightly different boundaries. Democrats hold a slim majority of the Senate’s seats, but the chamber is controlled by a coalition of five breakaway Democrats — the Independent Democratic Conference — and the Republican minority. Democrats want to hang on to the 55th District seat so they’re closer to a true majority, and Republicans want it so they can keep control of the chamber.

“We are involved in active discussions with a third party about a potential relocation of the Rochester Historical Society either in whole or in part to another location.” [ PATRICK MALGIERI, PRESIDENT OF THE ROCHESTER HISTORICAL SOCIETY ]
HISTORY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Historical Society will leave the library Still struggling to stabilize itself financially, the Rochester Historical Society will not renew its lease at the Rochester Public Library’s Rundel building in downtown Rochester. “We are involved in active discussions with a third party about a potential relocation of the Rochester Historical Society either in whole or in part to another location,” says Historical Society President Patrick Malgieri. Available space will determine how much of the Historical Society’s collection travels to the new site and how much stays in storage, he says. Malgieri says he expects the Historical Society to make an announcement about a new location soon — possibly in a month to six weeks. He says the organization will remain in the Rochester area, but wouldn’t say if it would be in the city or the suburbs. “If it works out, I think it’ll be good news for everybody,” Malgieri says. The Historical Society moved its offices and most of its collection to Rundel in 2009, after selling its East Avenue headquarters, the Woodside mansion. The lease there expires on June 30. The annual rent at the library is $48,000, but the Historical Society hasn’t
made a payment in almost a year. Library officials asked the Historical Society to clarify its plans by early 2014. It’s not clear what the Historical Society will do about its overdue rent. The issue is being worked Patrick Malgieri, president of the Rochester Historical Society, says the organization’s financial challenges remain serious.

Care costs Two-parent families in New York spend, on average, 16.5 percent of their annual income on child care, according to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s office. Single mothers, on average, spend more than 57 percent of their income on child care, the office says. Parents in the Rochester-Finger Lakes area face estimated full-time day care costs of up to $10,581 annually for infants, $10,244 for toddlers through age 2, and $9,620 for children ages 3 to 5, Gillibrand’s office says. Gillibrand publicized the numbers last week while explaining her support for a few pieces of legislation: one reauthorizes a federal grant program to states for day care subsides, the others address tax credits and deductions for child care. The first was passed by the Senate, and the rest have yet to be introduced. But the statistics also illustrate why child care subsidies are such a pressing issue. Without the subsidies, many lower-income working parents can’t afford day care, children’s advocates say. Advocates, Monroe County officials, and local business leaders are pressing state officials to give the county more funding for day care subsidies. In the Rochester-Finger Lakes area, the average household earns $65,000 annually, though about half of the population makes less than $50,000 a year.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Treatment for a traumatized world One of Vikki Reynolds’ first clients was a young girl who’d pee the bed to avoid being raped. Another early client fled halfway around the world to escape torture for his political beliefs. Reynolds, a clinician and instructor, says she observed similar characteristics in these early clients. Alongside pain and sadness, she says, there was an incredible well of resistance. And seeing this inner strength radically changed how Reynolds says she approached her counseling work. “I had traditional trauma training that led us to what they call ‘go into the wound’ and find out more about the trauma,” she says. “You were supposed to get all of the details. I just knew that this guy who somehow got to Nigeria and then to Vancouver and then to me for counseling was amazing. Most people die when they’re tortured. But what I wanted to know was how he lived.” Reynolds, who earned her doctorate from the University of British Columbia, is part of an emerging group of clinicians who view people who have experienced severe trauma, such as rape, incest, war, torture, disaster, and incarceration through a different lens. Reynolds says she sees them less as victims and more as resisters and survivors. What they’ve done, she says, is beat incredible odds, and part of treating them is helping them make that connection. Nearly a dozen area colleges and social service agencies including the University of Rochester, Nazareth College, and SUNY Brockport are co-sponsoring Reynolds’ visit to Rochester on Friday, April 4. Reynolds will lead a workshop on treating trauma at SUNY Brockport’s downtown location. The workshop is being offered to undergraduate and graduate students in the social services field, but it’s also open to the public. To register for the event, which will be held at 161 Chestnut Street from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., call 325-5260. Trauma is generally viewed as an incident or series of events so threatening that it leaves people with physical or emotional scars or both. Symptoms of trauma range from depression and extreme anxiety to eating disorders and substance abuse. Severe trauma in children can cause impairment of the neuroendocrine systems and changes in both the central nervous system and brain development, according to a 2005 study commissioned by the State of Vermont’s Department of Health. These children frequently lag behind in 6 CITY

school, the study says, and have diminished cognitive abilities. “Trauma is typically understood in a medical way,” Reynolds says. “In a medical model, an event occurs and it’s of such magnitude that you think that your life is at risk, and alongside that risk is the experience of being totally helpless. The problem with the medical model is that it locates the problem [trauma] entirely in the brain of the person who is the victim, as if it has nothing do with the outside world.” Reynolds says this tends to make people feel as though they are responsible for the incident and their suffering. “You can really get into the blaming language very easily,” she says. “’If they had been tougher, they wouldn’t have been victimized.’” Reynolds is a longtime social activist and has spent much of her career working with refugees and survivors of torture, rape, and violence. She has also worked with men and transpeople who have been incarcerated. Social activism has helped shape her practice in several ways, she says, and she encourages the professionals she meets to add a social justice perspective to their tool box. One of activism’s principles is, wherever there’s external pressure, there’s resistance in some form or another to that pressure. “I’m always asking, ‘Are you depressed or oppressed?’ she says. “Because oppression and abuses of power are at the root of why interpersonal violence occurs.” She says no one is a passive victim of a traumatic event; we always summon up some type of resistance. It’s human nature to try to guard our dignity, Reynolds says. “Every person who has ever been raped whom I’ve worked with, whether it’s a woman, a man, or a transperson has fought back,” she says. “They’ve resisted that rape with everything they’ve got. Often they don’t even know it. For example, when a man is raping a woman and he holds a knife to her throat and tells her to shut up or he’ll kill her, her resistance is silence. That is fighting back. She’s doing what she thinks it will take to stay alive.”

Social work sometimes replicates forms of violence, often in subtle ways, such as the wording used by therapists, says Michael Boucher, a social worker with St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center. Boucher helped arrange Reynolds’ upcoming appearance in Rochester. “Let’s say somebody attacks a person and I ask that person ‘What did you do about it?’” Boucher says. “That can be very demeaning.” Reynolds says a lot of her work is about expanding the profession’s understanding of the interconnectedness of trauma to a culture of violence, poverty, and oppression. “They’re what we call social determinants of health,” Boucher says. But when Reynolds adds the social activist and social justice components, Boucher says, she’s going a step further and advocating changing the things that help create a traumatized culture. For example, he says, counselors know that a lot of the issues adversely impacting their clients are interrelated social problems: domestic violence, unemployment, unaffordable housing, and inadequate health care. The violence many clients experience is often a symptom of those other problems, Boucher says. The social justice model changes the dynamics between counselor and client in a couple of ways, Reynolds says. The victim is empowered, she says, and the counselor or therapist is no longer an objective bystander.
Traditionally, social workers and human service professionals are trained to be objective listeners — another vestige of the medical model, Reynolds says. She says she prefers witnessing instead — a reference to social activism. Among human rights activists, witnessing is the difference between passivity and engagement. Reynolds says taking a stand against rape, for example, helps people make sense out of a horrific event. “Amnesty International has witnesses to human rights violations around the world, and one of the things that happens when someone witnesses is that they can’t be neutral,” Reynolds says. “I’m not neutral about racism; I’m against it. I’m not neutral about the rape of children; I’m against it. I can’t be objective about that, and that doesn’t make me a bad professional. I think we have an ethical obligation not to be objective.” There’s nothing natural about a socially unjust society, she says; slavery, colonization, and genocide are unnatural. And when social service professionals look at their work from an activism perspective, Reynolds says, they’re taking a stand. “They’re saying a socially just world is a mentally well world,” she says. “That’s what we should be working toward.”
GUEST COMMENTARY | BY ROBERT L. HOLMES
The high-risk stakes in Crimea and Ukraine The events in the Crimea have the potential to become the most serious threat to world peace since the Cuban missile crisis. It will take wise decision-making by Obama and Putin to avoid that outcome. Russia’s buildup of troops in the region and our sending of warplanes to a former Soviet Republic and a warship to the Black Sea are reckless. These are high-risk stakes. In the worst-case scenario they could lead to a confrontation between the U.S. and Russia, military powers armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons. Heads of government think they can control the events they unleash, but they relinquish control to the extent that they rely on violence to achieve their ends. A few hotheads on either side could trigger a confrontation, just by firing a few shots. Both Republicans and Democrats, for their part, rival one another for unhelpful responses. Sarah Palin and John McCain apparently think they predicted these events in 2008. If they read the biased “liberal media,” they would have seen reported in the New York Times as far back as October 10, 2003, a Russian announcement that they would intervene in former Soviet Republics to protect ethnic Russians if necessary. Against the background of the turmoil in Egypt, Libya, and Iraq, it takes little imagination to think Russia might understandably have a concern for the large Russian population in the Crimea, as well as for the security of its military bases there. Occasionally the most obvious explanations for an action are closest to the truth. Hillary Clinton, on her side, could not have been more deeply offensive to many Russians – who suffered 20 million losses to the Germans in World War II – than to liken Russia’s actions to those of Hitler in the 1930’s. She’s correct, of course, that Hitler exploited the plight of ethnic Germans in foreign countries to his advantage. But she neglects to mention that he also used to his advantage Woodrow Wilson’s principle that national aspirations “must be respected; peoples may now be dominated and governed only by their own consent.” We support the right of the Ukrainians to overthrow their government. Why not the right of the people of Crimea to self-determination? Other U.S. policies are coming home to roost in this crisis. Recognition of state sovereignty has long been the stabilizing pillar of international law, requiring that states not interfere in the internal affairs of other states. The Russians, of course, have done this. But against what background? The U.S. intervened
The worst-case scenario: a confrontation between the U.S. and Russia, military powers armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons.” militarily in Panama, Grenada, Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya and did so (in part or whole) in the name of protecting civilians, whether American or foreign. The rationale for these actions is humanitarian intervention, or what it is more recently called, The Responsibility to Protect (commonly known as R2P), after a 2001 report commissioned by the Canadian government. That is high-minded, of course, but it comes at a cost. When states reserve the right to intervene militarily in the affairs of other states, even to protect civilians, the international system that has been in place since the founding of the UN begins to come unraveled. The Russians are contributing to this by their actions in Crimea. But we opened the door for them. You cannot redefine the rules to suit yourself and then complain if others play by them. The U.S. should cool the rhetoric and promote negotiations that include all of the relevant parties, including the Crimeans (whose claim to self-determination we don’t recognize) and the Ukrainians (whose new government the Russians don’t recognize). We could then provide a model of world leadership the American people could be proud of and just perhaps avert disaster. Robert L.

Dinner and a show Umi Japanese Steakhouse Sushi & Bar 150 COBBLESTONE COURT DRIVE, VICTOR 223-1388, UMIJAPANESEHOUSE.COM LUNCH: MONDAY-SATURDAY 11 A.M.-2:30 P.M. | DINNER: MONDAY-THURSDAY 4:30-10 P.M.; FRIDAY-SATURDAY 4:30-11 P.M.; SUNDAY NOON-9:30 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
If you didn’t know that Umi is Japanese restaurant, you might mistake it for a club. The interior is hidden from outside view by mirrored windows. A sign by the door informs patrons that children under 18 aren’t allowed in unless accompanied by an adult, and no one under 21 may sit at the bar. Inside, Umi’s décor is futuristic and playfully dramatic; the space is large and dimly lit, accented with neon lighting. Translucent columns, pocketed with bubbles and fluctuating in color, divide teppanyaki tables from the sushi bar and regular seating. A peacock blue, tiled fountain, shaped like a cone, stretches from floor to ceiling. The bar, backlit in neon
blue, occupies its own space in a room kitted out with dark woods, red walls, and mod chairs. All of this sets the stage for culinary theatrics. Things are quiet and understated at the sushi bar, but you’ll find full-blown Broadway showmanship at the teppanyaki tables. There are only a handful of seats at the sushi
bar; grab one if you can. You can watch one or two chefs skillfully slice through pieces of salmon, tuna, and eel, nimbly wrap seaweed around fillings into a roll, and use soy sauce to delicately paint a branch on a plate to accent an assortment of sashimi. The chefs have been through six years of training, and it is a treat to watch them at work. The sushi-sashimi menu contains a vast number of items. Salmon toro tartar ($8.95) is a patty of raw, diced salmon belly, blended with diced mango and topped with caviar — black, red, green and yellow — and a maraschino cherry. Remove the cherry, and your plate looks like it holds a miniature version of the electronic memory game, Simon. The salmon is fresh, cool, and a little creamy, but the caviar really grabs attention. The tiny fish eggs roll between the crevices of
your teeth, and crunch when you trap them between your molars. A tiny burst releases an almost citrusy flavor, yielding to a pleasantly fishy and metallic taste. Magura (tuna, $2.50) and ikura (salmon roe, $3.50) are deep pink in color, and appear jewel-like against the white, rectangular plates. These taste clean and fresh — Umi’s owner, Jason Dao, says he has fish delivered from New York City every other day. Not everything from the sushi bar is raw. The Angry Dragon Roll special ($15.95) stuffs spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, and mango in seaweed, which is then enrobed in rice, and topped with king crab and a thin dressing. Sliced into eight pieces, it is plated with an abstract drawing in soy sauce, a blob of wasabi, some pickled ginger, and, for garnish, a purple orchid. The roll isn’t particularly spicy, but its tempura-batter crunch, soy-sauce saltiness, and mild seafood tastes blend into something enjoyable. Shumai ($5.95) are delicate little packages: petite purses of thin dough surrounding a minced shrimp filling. Prettily arranged on the plate, they are mild and made all the more lovely with a syrupy dipping sauce containing sweet, salty, and ginger notes.
In front of the sushi bar are several teppanyaki tables. These take up the majority of the dining space in the restaurant, and each table seats a crowd; it is not uncommon to sit with other patrons at one table. Teppanyaki is frequently called hibachi — which is the term used at Umi and other similar restaurants in the area — though hibachi style cooking is done over a grill, while teppanyaki cooking is done on a flat griddle. The hibachi/teppanyaki menu is fairly standard at Umi. You can choose from vegetables, proteins, or combinations of proteins, which come with a cup of simple soup, a cold iceberg salad with sweet carrotginger dressing, fried rice, grilled vegetables, and a couple of teriyaki shrimp. Prices range from $14.95 for vegetables only to $42.95 for the Umi Supreme, which comes with filet mignon, lobster, shrimp, and scallops. The chicken ($16.95) and the steak and shrimp combo (called “Land and Sea,” $25.95) are all tender, if a little sweet. With all the sides, it is a filling meal. The best reason to sit at the teppanyaki tables, however, is to watch the chef prepare your dinner. Spinning spatulas, egg juggling, water and vegetables shot into the mouths of willing patrons, flames that shoot up toward the ceiling — it is literally dinner and show. Fire is not limited to dinner. The Scorpion Bowl ($15) is an alcoholic punch for two, presented in a giant ceramic cup decorated with hula dancers. The cup rises up in the center to form a miniature volcano, which is filled with a splash of rum and set on fire. Circling this is the punch (made with vodka, rum, gin, triple sec, and fruit juice) filled with ice, slices of citrus fruit, and maraschino cherries. Served with two, 2-foot straws, it takes extra time and suction power to sip the drink. The punch tastes mostly of citrus, but after a few sips, you’ll have no doubts that the alcohol is there. Umi’s menu is not the most traditional presentation of Japanese food, but it is pleasant, and the overall dining experience is entertaining and lively. On a Sunday afternoon, two separate families celebrated their tween daughters’ birthdays, complete with singing waitresses, dessert, and candles. On a Saturday night, a couple playfully stole pieces of sushi from one another’s plate. A weekday lunch found a young family having a quiet meal, the children’s attention occupied by the restaurant’s flashing lights and futuristic décor. On all of these occasions, everyone I spied seemed to be having a good time.
“A very lucky actor”
Local performer Evan Harrington returns to Rochester in “Once”

10 CITY MARCH 19-25, 2014
Evan Harrington can probably count on a round of applause whenever he takes the Auditorium Theatre stage this week, as a member of the touring company of the hit Broadway musical “Once.” Harrington is returning home, one of many ambitious young people who got the opportunity to perform in school and in local theater groups in Rochester, and moved on to bigger things. In Harrington’s case, the big things have been replacement parts in three long-running Broadway hits. But his current job is probably his biggest yet: a meaty supporting role in the first national tour of another Broadway hit, a role that requires him to sing, act, dance, and even play the ukulele. Like many other actors, Harrington got the acting bug while in high school; his first role was in a West Irondequoit High School production of “The Music Man.” His teacher Todd Lilly encouraged to him continue with music and acting studies, and he played bigger and bigger parts, as well as taking part in performances outside school in the Monroe County Shakespeare Festival and in Buffalo’s West Seneca Youth Theatre. Harrington had a good example to follow. His father, Ken Harrington, has been a versatile leading man in local musical-theater productions for many years; his recent roles include “Zorbà” for Blackfriars, Daddy Warbucks in “Annie,” and Captain Von Trapp in “The Sound of Music” for Pittsford Musicals. Next he’ll play Max in Blackfriars’ upcoming “Sunset Boulevard.” “So when I got a little older and decided that maybe being a professional lacrosse player wasn’t for me, I had plenty of encouragement and support for
going into musical theater,” says Evan Harrington. After his high-school graduation in 1994, he did exactly that at SUNY Fredonia, where he received a degree in musical theater — and then had to decide which step to take next. He decided to take a yearlong apprenticeship at Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre, the oldest continuously running professional theater in the United States. He calls that period his “training wheels.” “Working in the theater requires talent, of course,” he says, “but it also requires lots of work and lots of luck. And your progress in the business is always tied to who you’ve met.” When Harrington’s year in Philadelphia was up and he
was wondering where to go next, he got a lucky break. “Eight of us graduated together from Fredonia with musical-theater degrees,” he says, “and one went to New York immediately. When my time in Philadelphia was over, I called my friend in New York, and it turned out his roommate was leaving and he needed a new one.” Harrington moved to New York in January 1999, and has made it his base for the past 15 years. “When people ask me what my first job in New York was, I tell them Virgil’s Barbecue — for six years,” says Harrington. At this point his story matches that of hundreds of other aspiring actors: talented young guy in the competitive world of New York theater, waiting tables to pay the bills and spending his spare time taking classes and auditioning, auditioning, auditioning. The auditioning paid off a few years later, with national tours of “The Music Man,” “Camelot,” and other shows. This created a schedule of eight months of touring, several months off for auditions and other work, then eight more months of touring, etc. It was non-union work, but Harrington gradually built up a resume. (He has also had small roles in a couple of movies, and what he calls a “blink and you’ll miss it” role in an episode of “30 Rock” — no “Law & Order” appearances, though.) Harrington’s close-up opportunity arrived in 2008, when he was chosen as a replacement in the role of Brian in the long-running musical “Avenue Q” (the one with the dirty-mouthed, if hilarious, puppets). Since then, he has seldom been off the stage. Harrington’s Broadway resume is brief but choice: besides “Avenue Q”, it includes a long run in “The Phantom of the Opera” as Piangi, and a stint as Alf the pirate in the play “Peter and the Starcatcher” (a prequel to “Peter Pan”), all long-running award-winners. “When I think of the shows I’ve done on Broadway,” says Harrington, “I realize how lucky I’ve been. Three

shows and three Tony Award winners, including two Best Musicals.” Harrington’s current project is also a multiple
award-winner, based on a popular recent movie. After it opened on Broadway in 2012, “Once” won eight Tony Awards (among lots of others), and is still running strong. The show’s pedigree also includes an Oscar for Best Song, for the original film (the tune “Falling Slowly”), and a Grammy. It is definitely a high-profile project and a beloved show, and Harrington is excited to be part of its first national tour. He plays Billy, a music-shop owner who brings together the show’s romantic leads (simply named Guy and Girl) together, even though he has feelings for the Girl himself. “Billy really has a crush on the Girl,” says Harrington. “He’s a passionate character. He plays music with her and wants to take care of her, but the Guy throws a monkey wrench into those plans.” Music is indeed a large part of the characters’ lives. The Guy is a songwriter, and most of the major characters in the show are musicians. In fact, director John Tiffany’s conception of the show requires all of the characters to sing, dance, and play instruments, often all at once. Harrington is called on to play guitar, mandolin, and ukulele, while negotiating some fancy footwork. “It sounded impossible to me,” says Harrington, “But after a couple of weeks of hard rehearsals I found I could move around and play music. There are some great continues on page 28

ochester is definitely a town with a longstanding music and theater culture. With numerous area schools offering high-level music and theater programs, and many communitytheater groups, it has been a training ground for a surprising number of actors who have gone on to fame on Broadway and in Hollywood. We’ve produced some actors who went on to become familiar faces on TV series. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, Pete Duel, who graduated from Penfield High School as Peter Deuel, and Peter Breck, who moved here with his stepfather as a young man, played young heartthrobs in “Alias Smith and Jones” and “The Big Valley,” respectively. University of Rochester graduate Robert Forster also had a 1970’s series of his own, “Nakia,” and still makes TV guest appearances (“Heroes,” “Breaking Bad”), but he is probably best-known for the movies “Medium Cool,” “Jackie Brown” (for which he received an Oscar nomination), and “The Descendants”. Mimi Kennedy, born Mary Claire Kennedy, has traveled from playing in Agatha Christie’s “The Spiderweb” for Rochester Community Players in the 60’s to playing two memorable mothers: the hippie mother on the sitcom “Dharma & Greg” and the wealthy, Francophobic mother-in-law-to-be in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris.” Two younger performers who achieved TV fame are Canandaigua-born Michael Park, who won two Emmys during his 12-year run as Jack Snyder on “As the World Turns” (he also appeared in the recent live NBC broadcast of “The Sound of Music”) and Brighton High School graduate Kristen Wiig, who spent several years on “Saturday Night Live” and transitioned successfully into movies with “Bridesmaids” and “Anchorman 2.” The most famous Rochester-born actor to achieve fame as an actor is undoubtedly

The Djangoners’ first-ever album, “En Direct Et Endiable,” is as much about Django Reinhardt’s legacy as it is about the Rochester quartet’s own. Drawing from Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France, The Djangoners painstakingly and elegantly recreate the sweet café swing produced by the legendary gypsy guitarist and his violinist, Stephane Grappelli. And as the band has grown increasingly popular around town due to its exuberance and jaw-dropping fleet finger work, it would make sense that the generous 14-track “En Direct Et Endiable” is just that: “alive and swinging.” With gems like “Songe d’Automne,” “Troublant Bolero,” and “Douce Ambiance,” it’s live, it’s swingin’, and it’s terribly romantic.

The biggest misconception in playing roots reggae, rock-steady, or ska, is that it’s easy. Now, it may be easygoing in its casual pump and sway, but it ain’t that easy. Bands like Rochester’s Noble Vibes in its most excellent execution of the one-drop style adds to this confusion on this eponymous release. The band makes it look and sound so easy and breezy whether giving it its own twist on its own stuff or coping to cats like Jimmy Cliff. It’s a fun record with the smoky vocals of Deannah McKenzie smoldering in the groove and texture --- I especially love the swirl and grind of that organ --- for dancing or just doing what you do. It’s that easy… and noble. Dig the vibe. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Music without all of it.” He points out that he’s “in the final quarter” of his career, adding, “I start to wonder, going forward, what it’s going to be like. I think about that. Right now I really do enjoy writing, playing again, working on my instrument, the arranging, and the conducting. It’s a real thrill to work with these great orchestras and audiences.” But Tyzik then goes on to highlight a current project that has grabbed him. He’s doing some arrangements of American standards for the London Symphony Orchestra. He says, “I’m getting into arranging what I’d like to do, clear to composing, really. I’m taking some liberties and I have a totally open mind about how to look at some great music and think about how to make it creative and interesting and different. It’s the first three hours of my day, which is really what I should be doing. That would be heaven.”
Jeff Tyzik has been the principal pops conductor for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra for 20 years. But at one point, the Eastman grad, cornet player, composer, and arranger actually considered giving up on music altogether. PHOTO PROVIDED

It would be easy to forget what a man is doing for his line of work when he’s commuting between Rochester, Detroit, Dallas, Seattle, Portland, Florida, and Vancouver, with occasional hops to Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, etc. A snappy dresser with trendy glasses and a certain verve to his body language. A quick smile. But perhaps you catch that slightly distant look in his eye, almost as if he’s hearing something you don’t. The man you might have mistaken for perhaps the Tesla North American Director of Operations is none other than Rochester’s own Jeff Tyzik. The man who says, “If I’m not going to have fun, I’m not going to walk out on stage,” is moving through his carefully orchestrated life to meet his commitments to 14 CITY MARCH 19-25, 2014
sharing his sense of fun with orchestras across the United States and Canada. Now 20 years into his tenure as the principal pops conductor for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Tyzik is inviting all of Rochester to join him and his friends, who are piling into Kodak Hall this weekend to celebrate. Friends in this case include trumpet players Allen Vizzutti and Doc Severinsen, and trombonist James Pugh. That’s a stage that would be cluttered with awards if all the musicians involved brought their accolades and piled them up. Suffice to say, Tyzik is out to bring the house down. “I’m thrilled that my friends are coming to town,” says Tyzik. “I’ve constructed a program where everybody is going to get time to play. Great fun. Great performances. It’s great that everyone was free and able to come. I’m really looking forward to having fun with my friends, making music. I feel my friends are not just the musicians, but also the audience.” Tyzik has been making friends through music
since he was 8, watching a parade going down the street, instantly falling in love with the cornet. It’s a love affair that has taken him through roles as a performer, arranger, composer, and conductor. He won a Grammy
for producing “The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinsen, Vol. 1.” He hit No. 3 on the Billboard classical chart for an album in which he conducted the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and pianist Jon Nakamatsu on works by Gershwin. He has released six albums of his own, and among his current projects, he is producing, marketing, and selling his own compositions online. Tyzik is unapologetic when he says, “There’s really nothing that I want to do that I haven’t done.” Even so, Tyzik singles out November 8, 2012, as a personal milestone. That’s when the RPO performed his work “Images.” Indeed, one piece from that suite, “Spirits of Tuol Sleng,” remains one of my absolute favorite new compositions. Each of the works in “Images” was inspired by works of art that Tyzik selected from the collection at the Memorial Art Gallery. “Spirits of Tuol Sleng” was inspired by the painting “Found Portraits Collection: From the Cambodian Killing Fields at Tuol Sleng” by Binh Danh (2003). The piece was commissioned by Robert and Joanne Gianniny. When asked about which aspect of his career he would most like to focus, Tyzik responds, “Sometimes, I wonder if I could do
Born in 1951, Tyzik is clearly a man at the top of his game. He says he got here through a series of interlocking steps that built one after the other. “I was prepared really well to do what I’m doing today,” says Tyzik of his education at the Eastman School of Music. “I was prepared in a great way by Ray Wright in a program called Jazz and Contemporary Media, which focused on the art of jazz and also on writing and arranging for orchestras.” After graduating from Eastman, Tyzik says he built a wealth of experience performing and working with Chuck Mangione, including working with him for thousands of hours in the recording studio. “It led me to think I was bold enough to record my own record,” says Tyzik. Tyzik is just as blunt about the challenges of becoming successful as he is about success. “It wasn’t always smooth,” he says. “The phone didn’t ring for six months. I had no income. I was considering getting out of the business of music and had applied for a couple of teaching positions.” He was offered a job to teach at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, “but something made me hold back from that, which led me to conducting orchestras in simple pops programs.” The rest, we might say, is history. Once Tyzik found what it was he wanted to do, he could pursue that path. “It took me until I was in my early 40s to get the kind of opportunities that are bearing fruit today at age 62,” says Tyzik. “I really only feel like I know what I’m doing for about 10 years. There may be some quick paths to certain kinds of successes, but everything that you do that helps you to gain the wisdom you need to have longevity is valuable.”

SKA/PUNK | REEL BIG FISH
Reel Big Fish has had to deal with a few challenges throughout the years. First, the ska-punk wave — which it rode to mainstream appeal in the 90’s — was reduced to a mere splash. Its single “Sell Out” became a minor hit in 1996, and the band appeared in the 1998 film “BASEketball,” but would soon become an afterthought in mainstream music. Then came a flurry of line-up changes. Despite all of this, frontman and lone remaining original member Aaron Barrett kept things together, and the band gained a cult following. When you listen to the band’s ska spin on A-Ha’s 80’s hit “Take on Me,” in which RBF replace synthesizers with trombones and electric guitar, it’s not hard to understand why the band has garnered such ardent fans.

BLUES | SAMANTHA FISH
ROCK | STONE SOUL FOUNDATION
Rochester got its first dose of guitarist Samantha Fish a couple of Jazz Festivals ago, when she was one of the wows in the triple-wow “Blues Caravan, Girls with Guitars” bill, along with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde. And though we could look beyond the visuals and get right down to the music, fans were blown away the trio’s beautiful blues. Now performing on her own, Fish digs in deep into the very edge where blues and rock meet. Her duet with Devon Allman on Tom Petty’s classic “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” is a prime example. Fish’s playing is brash and incendiary. Catch it on her newest platter, “Black Wind Howlin,” or better yet see her live. Just make sure you hold onto something.
The cats in Central New York’s Stone Soul Foundation are the masters of the heavy, collaborative riff. It’s not just the guitar, but the whole outfit that kicks in to weave a fine thread count into the band’s gravel and groove. Lyrically the band rages a bit topical and angry — religion, politics — but musically it runs deep. It ain’t metal, but it sure is heavy. This band packs one hell of a powerful kick.

New York-based band Porches makes ambient, atmospheric music with an emotive edge. Similar to bands like Beach House, Animal Collective, and Wild Nothing, Porches embraces an ethereal, dreamy sound that hides the serious, dark nature of the majority of its lyrics. Porches released a full-length album, “Slow Dance in the Cosmos,” full of relaxed, murky pop tunes perfect for getting lost.

Ken Dauer and Bill Alden in the Irish Players’ “Shining City,” now on stage at MuCCC. PHOTO BY ROCHESTER COMMUNITY PLAYERS
The light at the end of the tunnel “Shining City” BY IRISH PLAYERS/ROCHESTER COMMUNITY PLAYERS THROUGH MARCH 29 MUCCC, 142 ATLANTIC AVE. $9-$19 | 866-811-4111, MUCCC.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
The Irish Players’ “Shining City” is described as “an Irish ghost story for today,” but it’s not a shivers-aroundthe-campfire kind of ghost story, nor is it full of banshees or other Celtic heebie-jeebies. There is a ghost in it, or something described as a ghost, but Conor McPherson’s play is something more subtle and more intriguing: a study of guilt-ridden, inarticulate people who are indeed haunted. The action takes place in the Dublin office of Ian (Ken Dauer), a newly licensed therapist. In the first of the play’s five scenes he is listening to a patient, John (Bill Alden), whose wife Mary was recently killed in a car accident. Still consumed with grief and guilt over her death and their unhappy marriage, John has recently seen Mary’s ghost in their house, 20 CITY MARCH 19-25, 2014
half hiding behind a door and seeming to cry out. John returns in a later scene with an even more involved monologue about his attempts (while still married) at having an affair with a woman he met at a party, a visit to a brothel that ended in a violent beating, and coming home to his wife and attacking her. In the final scene John is moving on and says goodbye to Ian. His confession seems to have exorcised Mary’s ghost; the very end of the play, shocking but logical, suggests otherwise, but also offers a small light of hope. (Perhaps literally: John’s parting gift to Ian is a lamp.) Ian, of course, has a complicated story of his own, starting with leaving the priesthood (this is an Irish play, after all). One of the play’s other two scenes is an encounter with his fiancée and the mother of his daughter, Neasa (Shawnda Urie), a barmaid who lives with Ian’s brother and sister-in-law and wants to move away from Dublin. The other is with a young man named Lawrence (Patrick Best); I’ll borrow a phrase from the New York Times review of “Shining City” and describe him simply as “a scruffy young father who is hard up for cash.” He also offers Ian a rare chance at communication.
“Shining City” because I don’t want to give too much away. The characters’ stories and their attempts at communicating with each other — and dealing with their ghosts — are the play. McPherson is a prolific and highly regarded Irish playwright, and a very skilled one: “Shining City” is beautifully written. While the characters may have trouble expressing themselves, the author does not. Each scene and each speech seems to join with the others to articulate the play’s theme: that communicating with another person is next to impossible, but loneliness is hell. The “shining city” of Dublin is a character in this play, too, though it exists only outside Ian’s office and in the comments of the characters. McPherson makes it seem no different from any other big modern city: busy, soulless, money-driven, easy to get lost in, and probably necessary to get out of. A moody piece like this needs a firstrate presentation, and it gets one from the Irish Players (who have been doing this kind of thing very well for quite a while). They are expertly guided by Jean Gordon Ryon, in a production with minimal movement, maximum impact, and a very consistent mood. (Even the brief scene changes have a half-lit air of mystery.) The most demanding role is probably that of John, with his two huge virtual monologues. Bill Alden performs these with expert pacing and delivery, but also gives a very lucid portrayal of John’s arc as a character, from his nervous meeting with Ian, through self-revelation and despair, to self-acceptance. As Ian the therapist, Ken Dauer is professionally noncommittal and slightly wary, but in his scenes with Neasa and Lawrence, he shows his character’s paralyzing pain and guilt. And while Neasa and Lawrence only get a scene each, Shawnda Urie and Patrick Best deliver well-rounded, very human characterizations of two rather ill-used people. As for these actors’ Irish accents — well, I am no expert, but they were subtly different from each other and easy to understand. “Shining City” is the kind of play that stays in your head long after you see it; I haven’t quite put it all together myself. But the Irish Players give a very satisfying production of what I can only call a very haunting play.

Rochester’s art scene perpetually provides. Here are a couple of choice art events taking place this week. For more, visit our online calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com. Oxford Gallery (267 Oxford St.) is currently hosting “Forgotten Places,” (pictured) an exhibit of paintings by Richard Harrington, Matt Klos, and Ryan Schroeder, which focus our gaze on things, or aspects of things, that we may normally have passed over. They focus on the humble, the discarded, or the derelict abodes of man, per the provided statement. Subject matter includes the abandoned buildings of Fort Howard, depicted by Matt Klos; Ryan Schroeder’s depictions of the detritus of interior spaces; and Richard Harrington’s study of the bare, geometric structures of barns. The exhibit continues through April 19, and is free and open to the public Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information, call 271-5885, or visit oxfordgallery.com. “Where Heaven Meets Earth,” an art auction fundraiser for Katie’s Star Memorial Fund (named for a young woman who was killed in a car accident in 2006 and who saved the lives of others through organ donation), will be held at Art and Vintage on Main (101 Main St., East Rochester) on Saturday, March 22. The event will feature a wine and beer tasting and hors d’oeuvres sampling, as well as the work of more than 20 local artists and craftspeople.

FILM | IMAGEOUT BEST OF THE FEST
In honor of LGBT Health Awareness Month, ImageOut will host a free screening of popular and important LGBT cinema on Tuesday, March 25. Kicking off the night will be the screening of the movie “Shooting for the Moon,” which tells the true and tragic love story of American poet Elizabeth Bishop and Brazilian architect Lota de Macedo Soares during the 1950’s and 60’s. The film will be followed by both the winner and runner-up of the ImageOut 2013 Audience Award for Best Short, “The Devotion Project: Foremost On My Mind” (pictured) and “Spooners.” “Foremost On My Mind” is part of the Devotion Project, a series of short documentaries celebrating LGBTQ love, this time focusing on Olympic medalist Gail Marquis, and former model Audrey Smaltz. Changing pace, “Spooners” tells the comical story of two men on an adventure to get rid of their old futon and buy a “grown-up” bed. The movie night will take place at Cinema Theatre, 957 S. Clinton Ave. “Shoot for the Moon” will begin at 6 p.m. and the shorts will start at 8:30 p.m. The movie night is free and open to the public.

LITERATURE | IF ALL OF ROCHESTER READ THE SAME BOOK
Can’t get enough of this year’s “If All of Rochester Read the Same Book” selection? Then make sure to take advantage of the multitude of events coming up in honor of Eowyn Ivey’s “The Snow Child.” The book tells the story of a childless couple in 1920’s Alaska.

The painter and the computer whiz “Tim’s Vermeer”
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY TELLER NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
One of the more unusual documentaries to appear in recent years, “Tim’s Vermeer” demonstrates the continuing appeal of the nonfiction form even in this age of blockbusters, comic-book flicks, and computergenerated images. As the title indicates, the film deals with the great 17th Century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, the subject of the lovely 2003 picture, “The Girl with a Pearl Earring.”
This film examines the possible methods that enabled the artist to create his remarkable paintings, with their unique underlying brightness, their intense colors, and their extraordinary attention to detail, attempting to explain the qualities that distinguish his work from that of other artists of his time and place. Beginning with the people behind its production, the movie provides a number of surprises. Directed by Teller, the silent member of the brilliant magicians Penn and Teller, and narrated by Penn Jillette, a generally obnoxious blowhard, it introduces Tim Jenison, who announces to the camera that he is not an artist but nevertheless intends to paint a Vermeer — a bold statement. A wealthy and most successful inventor in the computer field, and an old friend of Jillette, Jenison bases his ambition on a book by the famous English artist David Hockney, who claims that Vermeer painted his pictures using the technology of his day, mostly in the form of the camera

obscura. The film shows some of the history of that relatively simple device and Jenison’s attempts to duplicate what he imagines were Vermeer’s methods. His efforts turn into a demanding, fascinating, even obsessive labor of love, which provides the emotional subtext of the movie. Jenison visits Holland to see the Vermeer museum, the house where he lived and painted, the landscapes of Delft and Amsterdam, and learns to read Dutch to study some of the works about the master. On a couple of occasions, he journeys to England to consult with Hockney and an Oxford scholar named Colin Blakemore, and even persuades the folks at Buckingham Palace to allow him to study an original Vermeer painting, now the property of Queen Elizabeth. Back in San Antonio, Texas, where Jenison lives, he rents a warehouse with the proper northern exposure and, amazingly, sets about the construction of an exact duplicate of the room in the painting he proposes to copy, “The Music Lesson.” He builds the furniture himself, purchases a viola da gamba and a virginal, the instruments in the painting, copies the windows, the ceiling beams, the floor tiles, enlists models to assume the positions of the young female pupil and her music teacher, assembling all the elements — a stunning achievement in itself. With everything in place, using the camera obscura and a mirror, he captures the images of the figures and objects reflected on his canvas, and in effect painstakingly fills them in with his

authentic paints and brushes, a task that requires an exhausting amount of effort. The whole tedious project, carefully filmed through all its stages, takes more than five years from beginning to end; when he finishes, Jenison believes he has actually painted “The Music Lesson,” and both Hockney and Blakemore concur. “Tim’s Vermeer” exploits one of the most successful and entertaining practices of American film, its ability to show process, the step-by-step actions of doing work and making something — digging an irrigation ditch, tarring a road, erecting a barn, carving a baseball bat — and endowing that activity with a fascination all its own. Jenison’s remarkable journey through the many stages of his ambitious quest consists almost entirely of a series of carefully planned, artfully managed tasks, all of them terrifically cinematic. Beyond all that, Jenison himself serves as an appropriate hero of his own dream, an ordinary guy with enormous talent, pots of dough, and the willingness to pursue a quixotic adventure of the spirit. The movie provides an engrossing lesson in history, art history, and art itself; like Hockney’s book, its conclusions surely invite controversy and debate. Although nobody in the film wants, or perhaps bothers, to utter the point, Jenison’s work and his conclusions may ultimately reduce — if that’s the right word — Johannes Vermeer from a great artist to a great technologist, from an unusually accomplished painter to a remarkably skilled, patient, and meticulous draftsman.
Inspired by the long-running video-game series of the same name, “Need for Speed” is the first major-studio starring role for actor Aaron Paul in his post-“Breaking Bad” career. After award-winning work on that series and strong performances in a number of smaller indie films, Paul is no doubt being flooded with offers for work. With that in mind, it’s unclear as to what drew him to this dim-witted action flick, which does nothing to improve the dismal track record of video-game-based films. Paul stars as Tobey Marshall, a former race-car driver whose body shop faces foreclosure. That forces him to accept an offer from a past rival, Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), to help him build a one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang. After selling the car for a cool $2.7 million, Dino challenges Tobey, along with their third business partner, Little Pete, to a drag race, which ends in Little Pete’s fiery death. Dino frames Tobey for Pete’s death, sending him

to jail for two years, and allowing Dino to make off with the money. We flash forward two years as Tobey gets released from prison, with nothing but revenge on his mind. For some reason, he decides the best payback would be to compete against Dino in the DeLeon, a winner-takes-all, illegal street race staged annually by a wealthy organizer known as Monarch (Michael Keaton). Tobey drives across the country to reach the race’s starting point, with a car aficionado love interest (played by British actress Imogen Poots) by his side. The stage is set for high-octane vengeance. That’s infinitely more story than a film of this type requires, and unsurprisingly, the car chases are where “Need for Speed” truly shifts into gear. Aside from a rather mean-spirited disdain for pedestrians and bicyclists, the races themselves are excitingly staged by director Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”). So it is mystifying that screenwriter George Gatins chooses to spend so much time away from the action, with every moment of supposed drama slamming on the brakes, and allowing the audience time to ponder how stupid it all is. (Not to mention questioning the morality of staging highspeed races in residential areas.) The actors mostly seem stranded with their cardboard characters, forced to speak in nothing but clichés. Paul feels miscast as the supposedly Steve McQueen-esque Tobey. What made the actor so compelling on “Breaking Bad” was the way he conveyed a deep vulnerability masked by a tough-guy exterior. His skills don’t translate as well to this “strong and silent” type of character. The practical car stunts are undeniably impressive, but recent installments of the “Fast and Furious” series have raising the bar for brainless car-related mayhem. The comparatively dull “Need for Speed” just can’t keep up. In the darkly satiric new comedy “Better Living Through Chemistry,” Sam Rockwell plays Douglas Varney, a sad-sack, smalltown pharmacist whose life has become

Down-on-his-luck screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) gets in over his head when he stumbles upon a decrepit mansion and decides to hide out there, only to discover its sole inhabitant is forgotten silent film star Norma Desmond (played by real-life silent film queen Gloria Swanson). Agreeing to write her comeback picture while working on a project of his own, he begins to realize the suspiciously possessive way Norma latches onto him. (Billy Wilder, US 1950, 110 min., 35mm)
an unending series of compromises. He’s married to an emasculating, competitive workout fanatic, played by Michelle Monaghan (her stereotypically ball-busting character is typical of the film’s rather unpleasant air of misogyny), with a preteen son who’s indifferent to his presence at best and outright hostile at worst. The one highlight in his life is his job, but even that has its difficulties: Doug has finally inherited his father-in-law’s pharmacy business, but the old man refuses to stop meddling. Things change dramatically when he meets and immediately strikes up a steamy affair with a bored trophy wife, portrayed by an incredibly game Olivia Wilde. The would-be femme fatale convinces him that he’s a fool for not taking advantage of his position at the pharmacy by getting high on his own supply, and the couple’s psychotropic recreation gives Doug the confidence he’s been lacking. Oh, did I mention the film is inexplicably narrated by Jane Fonda, playing some version of herself, for no particular reason? Rockwell is great, as usual, though the one adjective I’d never use to describe the effortlessly charismatic actor is “milquetoast.” And so his pre-affair performance as Doug is never entirely convincing. Olivia Wilde is an actress who has spent far too long playing dull, “stand around and look pretty” roles, but recent work in Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” have shown that at least a few directors have caught on to the hugely likeable personality behind her looks; writer-directors Geoff Moore and David Posamentier utilize her effectively here. Disappointingly, the film spends its time attempting to shock a reaction out of its audience before finally revealing itself to be more of a placebo; there’s no substance beneath the posturing, and it all ends up feeling far too safe. However, the sequence of father-son bonding through vandalism, set to a cover of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” is a relative comedic high point.
THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT Tuesday, March 25, 8 p.m. Two sisters, dancer Delphine and piano teacher Solange, are looking for “Mr. Right.” Maxence is an artist trapped into serving his duty to his country. Simon owns a music store. As they go about their lives, they narrowly glide toward and away from each other, missing the perfect opportunity to meet their perfect mate. Starring Catherine Deneuve and a still-sparkling Gene Kelly, this vibrant classic will leave you in a state of wonder.

musicians in this show, and I am getting a lot of free lessons. And I’d always wanted to play the ukulele!” The “Once” tour is a long one, covering 29 cities in the United States and Canada. It opened in Providence on October 1, 2013, and winds up on October 1 of this year in Charlotte, North Carolina. After his experiences on non-union tours early in his career, Harrington is enjoying the relative luxury of a high-end national tour. But he is most excited about returning to audiences in his hometown. In fact, this is his first performance in Rochester since he left in for college in 1994. Besides seeing family and friends, he’ll do some giving back while he is here. He’ll revisit West Irondequoit High School to meet with students and hold a master class, as well as other classes at high schools here and in Buffalo, the next stop on the tour. A big, friendly, bearded man,
Harrington is a natural for what he calls the “funny guy roles” — like the three he has played on Broadway, which range from a would-be comedian to an egotistical opera singer to a wacky pirate. (A visit to his website will confirm that he has the vocal chops not only to play an operatic tenor convincingly, but also to sing Meat Loaf and Paul Simon.) It’s not the kind of character you can play forever, though, and “Once” gives him a chance to show what he can do in a more serious role. And Evan Harrington definitely has serious roles in mind for his future. When asked about his dream musical-theater roles, he goes right to the top: he’d love to play Jean Valjean in “Les Misérables,” musical theater’s saintliest character, but he’d also like to try Sweeney Todd — probably its most devilish. Until then, there are many other roles to explore, or perhaps create. “I think the life of every actor is about the same,” he says. “Often things are tough and nothing seems to be coming your way. But when things are going good, well, you’re living the dream. All told, I know I have been a very lucky actor.”

a wealth of cultural, natural, recreational and architectural gems, including the dazzling Genesee River Gorge and falls (and its Riverway Trail), Maplewood Park and Rose Garden, and gorgeous streets lined with a wide array of handsome houses and mature trees. Among these gems is the cheery yellow house at 295 Maplewood Avenue. Built in 1923, the house, set on a hill, is replete with just about all the charms that make an older city home so lovable and livable. Steps from the street lead to a covered wooden porch big enough for quality lounging. Beyond the front door to the left of a tidy foyer is a delightful living room, its entire front wall a bank of windows. A fireplace and built-in cabinets are flanked by cute littler windows. The living room attaches to a room now used as a dining room; it too features a large bank of windows as well as a quirky long window high up on the adjacent wall. Past the foyer and dining room is the checkerboard-floored kitchen, a tidy and cheerful combo of older (a neat little cupboard with glass-paned door) and newer elements (modern cabinets and a stainless steel fridge). Attached to the kitchen is a classic pantry with all walls offering glasspaned cupboards and drawers. A really neat feature here is the original ice chest—thick wooden doors with metal latches behind which the ice was loaded into the house from a hatch to the outside (this isn’t a freezer anymore, but the doors sure are fun to play with). Off the kitchen is a handy half-bath.
an office. From this bedroom is a door to a classic sleeping porch that overlooks the ample backyard. The full bathroom upstairs features handsome white wainscoting, original tile floor, and a beautiful pedestal sink. A well-kept staircase leads from the upstairs hall to a versatile finished, carpeted attic, tucked under the roof. Three floors below is an immaculate basement with washer and dryer. A cool little tunnel leads from the basement to the one-car garage, which is dug neatly into the hillside. Both in the front and back of the house is yard enough to play and garden. Maplewood Avenue ends at beautiful Maplewood Park and Rose Garden and provides access to the spectacular Genesee River Gorge. The house is also served by the highly organized Maplewood Neighborhood Association, which runs many neighborly events and advocates for all things Maplewood (www.maplewood. org). Another bonus—the house is located in the Maplewood Historic District, meaning prospective owners are eligible for the NYS Homeowners Rehab Tax Credit program. This 2,100 square-foot jewel is listed at $140,000.

There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.
