Single-payer saves money

Several states have hired accounting and auditing firms to analyze their health care financing structure and the results are always a dramatic confirmation of single-payer universal health care as the best and most efficient system. The usual saving is at least $1,000 per person annually. With 20 million people in New York, the savings are huge. No wonder the insurance companies are against it. But why aren’t all the Democrats, not to mention Republicans, sponsoring this legislation? The health insurance companies and their allies are shamefully raking in huge profits while conducting expensive misinformation campaigns to derail progress. It would be most interesting to know how much they spend on management compensation, political contributions, and so-called public relations. It would also be interesting to know how much they spend on lawyers and bureaucrats whose job is to find ways to deny payment for health care when you need it. We need Medicare for all and if we cannot get it, we ought to enact the Gottfried bill (News, March 18) in New York. It is both morally and fiscally the right thing to do. JIM BERGER

local Democratic Party. I can sum it all up with one statement: power-hungry control freaks behaving badly when they don’t get their way. How dare Lovely run a primary and win! I am no fan of Lovely, but the greatest thing about our system is that anyone can run for office... and win. When the true nature of our democratic system stops bothering some Democrats, then the embarrassing need for stories such as this one will cease to exist. Don’t hold your breath. TOM JANOWSKI

The local Democratic Party is a mess all right. They complain about their lack of clout in the County Legislature, yet they have complete control of the city and seem unable to manage it without looking like the Keystone Kops. At the state level, Ted O’Brien was soundly defeated by Rich Funke to help give control of the Senate to the Republicans. Louise Slaughter almost lost her seat to Mark Assini in what was supposed to be a shoo-in for her. And Bob Duffy bailed out as Cuomo’s running mate. Cuomo couldn’t even carry Monroe County in his re-election bid. Not to mention Joe Morelle, who was pushed out of the running for speaker by the Downstate Democrats. BART

The actual division started to show when Joe Morelle, then chair, declared Tom Richards the nominee before some primarily black LD’s met. When the agreement (denied by Richards and Morelle) that Richards was not going to run for reelection was withdrawn, all hell started to break loose. Like it or not, the party is the party of white folks and a separate party of black folks — sadly caused by the white folks who say liberal things while excluding blacks. REMINGTON

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

New York’s new budget: is ‘sin’ too strong a word? It’s an embarrassingly easy target, but I’ll join the piling-on: With the new state budget, New York legislators have reached a new low, giving tax breaks for big yachts. And while it’s a small giveaway in the overall scheme of things, it’s a nice symbol of how Albany operates. Legislators wouldn’t increase the minimum wage, but they had no problem with letting owners of big yachts avoid sales tax on any amount they spend over $230,000. You don’t have to read any of the media reports to know legislators’ justification: It’s a job creator. Promise to create jobs, and elected officials are at your service. Oh… and this particular tax break makes New York “competitive.” Some of us who inhabit a different world didn’t know that tax breaks on yachts were a competitive thing, but indeed they are. Before the state legislature came to the rescue, if you bought a $3 million yacht in Florida, you paid less sales tax than if you had bought the same yacht in New York. We’ve leveled the playing field. What’ll happen if the Florida legislature gets wind of this and lowers the tax down there? You don’t have to ask. This is how we do things, of course, not just in New York but throughout the country. Want businesses to move to your state (or your county or city or suburb)? Give them a tax break. And other places follow suit. And we dive on downward. And there’s less money available for schools and health care and infrastructure. (Factoid: Want to know how much New York State funding for the arts dropped between 2001 and 2013? Sixty percent, according to the latest report from ACT Rochester.) We could stop this, but that would require one of two things: federal action, or an immense amount of ethics, fortitude, common sense, and cooperation among all of the states. Neither is gonna happen. So we’re left with interstate competition over taxes on high-priced yachts. And it’s no mystery how that’s going to play out. The Empire Center’s E.J. McMahon, quoted in an Atlantic article, noted that the yacht-tax giveaway is actually small fish. “As tax breaks for wealthy individuals go,” he said, “this will be perhaps the smallest one around.” And in his own blog last week, McMahon noted this: “Of course, the same sort of justifications are offered for bigger special tax breaks in New York’s loophole-ridden tax code, such as the $420 million-a-year Film Tax Credit. The passage of the yacht exemption will only add to pressure for more ‘job creating’ giveaways, like a proposed music

This particular budget says so much about where the state is right now. And where this country is.”

production tax credit that failed to make it into the budget despite a lobbying push from the industry.” We can complain about plenty of things in New York’s new budget, starting with the fact that so much of what’s in it was passed without public discussion. And despite everybody’s presumed outrage over corruption in Albany, the budget includes a tepid ethics reform package: “underwhelming and uninspiring,” critic Dick Dadey of Citizens Union told New York State Public Radio’s Karen DeWitt. A statement signed by Dadey and representatives of Common Cause, the Brennan Center for Justice, the New York Public Interest Research Group, and Reinvent Albany warned that “these steps are simply insufficient to fully address the parade of scandals that have engulfed Albany and will do little to restore the public’s growing cynicism about its own government.” We all know it takes all kinds of wheeling and dealing to create the sausage that is the state budget. To get good things, we often end up with bad things. But this particular budget says so much about where the state is right now. And where this country is. We know what legislators will say: They were there. We weren’t. They see the big picture. We don’t. We just don’t understand. Nope. We don’t. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Slaughter-Assini rematch likely

House Representative Louise Slaughter says that she will seek re-election to a 16th term in 2016, and has already started fund-raising. Slaughter, a Democrat, will likely face Gates Supervisor Mark Assini, a Republican who lost to Slaughter last November. Assini has said that he also intends to run again in 2016.

More trouble for 911

The FBI arrested Jason Cortese, a city 911 operator, for allegedly sending sexually explicit photographs to a minor. Cortese also allegedly tried to persuade the 12-year-old girl to send him inappropriate photographs. It’s been a tough few weeks for the 911 center. Steve Cusenz, also with 911, was suspended recently for making inappropriate comments on social media.

Bike school The University of Rochester has made serious efforts to encourage its staff, faculty, and students to bike. It offers access to bike cages and showers at the medical center, for example, and it’s improving its reservation system for its campus bikesharing program.

RHA closing in on new leader

The Rochester Housing Authority has seven finalists for its executive director position, narrowed down from 73 resumes the agency received for the job. The list does not include City Council member Adam McFadden, who has expressed interest in the job despite a HUD ruling that holding both positions would be a conflict of interest.

Upcoming bike-commuting workshops are meant to encourage the UR campus community to arrive at work on two wheels. FILE PHOTO

The school’s efforts earned it an honorable mention in the Bicycle Friendly University awards by the League of American Bicyclists last year. The designation recognizes that a campus is becoming more accommodating to cyclists, but still has work to do. On April 14 and 15, the New York Bicycling Coalition will hold bike- commuting workshops at UR to further encourage cycling among the campus community. The workshops are open to the public, too. The April 14 workshop is at 3 p.m. in the Wilson Commons’ Gowen Room, while the April 15 workshop is at 11:30 a.m. in the Class of ’62 Auditorium. The workshops will focus on basics including cyclist clothing, route selection, and bike maintenance and repair tips.

Scott MacRae, an ophthalmology professor at the university and a founding member of the Rochester Cycling Alliance advocacy group, says that the UR’s example could get more people in the region to walk or bike to work. The school is the region’s largest employer, and many of its employees live nearby in the city and Brighton, both of which have been working to become more bikeable, MacRae says. The New York Bicycling Coalition also sees potential for other employers in the Rochester region to host bikecommuting workshops. “We’re using the U of R for kind of a pilot project,” says Martel Catalano, spokesperson for the New York Bicycling Coalition.

“Certainly neither teachers nor their unions are interested in investing in prisons,” No teacher that I know of is in favor of supporting or building more prisons.” [ ADAM URBANSKI, PRESIDENT OF THE ROCHESTER TEACHERS ASSOCIATION ]

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

The prison-to-pension pipeline The correlation between low student achievement, failing schools, and youth incarceration is clear, especially for black and Latino males in urban public schools. “The school-to-prison pipeline is not some abstraction,” says education activist Howard Eagle. “It’s not something people are making up. The link is direct.” Eagle, a retired teacher for the Rochester City School District, recently found another disturbing link in a story reported by vice.com. The New York State Teachers’ Retirement System, the agency that manages the investment funds for the state’s teacher pensions, has investments in privatelyoperated prisons. Eagle questions whether this is ethical. Should educators profit from students who leave school with few marketable job skills, become involved in illegal activities such as drug dealing, and wind up in prison? Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association, says that he immediately contacted the NYSTRS after Eagle brought the information to his attention. “Certainly neither teachers nor their unions are interested in investing in prisons,” Urbanski says. “No teacher that I know of is in favor of supporting or building more prisons.”

IT’S SPRING TWEET AT US

John Cardillo, spokesperson for NYSTRS, says that his organization has $7.1 million invested in the GEO Group and $10.7 million invested in Corrections Corporation of America. Both are privatelyheld companies that operate prisons and detention centers. Cardillo says that the retirement system’s investments are in the form of passively managed index funds. Rather than trying to outwit the market by buying and selling individual stocks, the passive management approach assumes that investing in large index funds will reduce the risk of financial loss and lead to better returns. Cardillo says that the investments in GEO and CCA represent a tiny portion of NYSTRS’s $108 billion in assets. And given how many pension plans are under-funded, he says, it’s worth noting that the NYSTRS is doing its job: NYSTRS is one of the most well-funded pension plans in the US, he says, which means that it has the assets to pay current retirees, as well as to protect the interests of future members. Eagle questions why educators would have even a small investment in prisons. “Hopefully, the community will respond in a way that is beyond criticism and demand that those funds be divested,” he says.

Howard Eagle. FILE PHOTO

But Cardillo says that he doesn’t know when or if NYSTRS officials will address the concern. There are multiple schools of thought on pension plan investment strategies, he says. For instance, by divesting in a company, some employees could lose their jobs, he says, which can also adversely impact parents and their children. And the ethics are subjective, Cardillo says. Some members of a pension plan may object to investing in prisons, he says, while others may object to investing in companies that manufacture weapons used in warfare. Eagle says that’s not a problem. “I would say, ‘Wonderful, add them to the list,’” he says.

HEALTH CARE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

UR students serve the uninsured About two dozen men and women fought through an early March snowstorm to get something that many people take for granted: medical care. They filed downstairs to the basement of Asbury First United Methodist Church in southeast Rochester, where the University of Rochester and church officials have set up a small health clinic. The examination room — previously a storage area — reeked of rubbing alcohol and latex. The Asbury clinic on East Avenue is one of three UR Well Student Outreach clinics in Rochester operated by medical students. The patients — students saw more than 900 last year — usually don’t have health insurance and can’t afford to pay for services. The clinics — the others are at St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center and St. Luke Tabernacle Community Church — coordinate their services, most of which are free. Together, they provide a muchneeded triage for the area’s uninsured, while also giving students an important learning experience. Deondre Coakley, a marine biology student at Monroe Community College, recently used the Asbury clinic. He says that he wanted to work in the child care field so badly that he took a volunteer position, without health insurance. “I feel like I’m in good health, but I need the annual physical because it’s a requirement for my job,” he says. “And this is convenient for me instead of paying to go somewhere else.” Many patients visit the Asbury UR Well clinic on the first Tuesday of the month when the students offer physical exams, says Ida Hickman, a church volunteer who coordinates clinic staffing. “Used to be that that you got the job and the employer did their own physicals,” Hickman says. “Now they make people handle that on their own and it costs about $200. That’s a lot of money that many people just can’t afford.” UR medical students volunteer at the clinics, which are usually open one evening a week for about three hours. The students do not receive course credit or compensation, but many say that the experience is unlike any they might encounter in a classroom or hospital setting. The first- and second-year med students are paired with third- and fourth-year students, and all are closely supervised by 6 CITY

Its spring offerings include (left) Vegetable pot-au-feu, using spring vegetables, poached organic egg, mint pistou, garlic confit toast; and (right) Smoked Salmon Salad, which includes frisee, radish, creamy herb dressing, cucumber, and poppy seeds.

Cooking what you love [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY

Ashley Swan-Abramson, chef and partowner of Roux (688 Park Avenue), loves the versatility of French cooking. “French food is influenced by so many different regions and you can do so much with it,” she says. “I love doing new twists on classic interpretations.” Swan-Abramson, along with her mother, Robin Banister, and her sister, Paulina Swan, own and run Roux together. Paulina Swan creates the craft cocktail menu while Banister chooses the selections for the restaurant’s wine list. The family also owned Cibon, the café that previously occupied the same space. The Cibon menu was primarily Italian-influenced, but the café’s popular mussel dish made it to the new menu as the Roux Moules ($11) — mussels in a cream, Dijon, wine, and shallot broth, and served with a baguette. The new menu is significantly smaller than the one

used by Cibon and changes seasonally, approximately every three months. Roux’s spring menu debuted last week, along with a new craft cocktail menu. The spring menu is lighter, with new dishes like the Smoked Salmon Salad ($14) — incorporating frisée, radish, cucumber, creamy herb dressing, and poppy seeds — and the Potage Parmentier ($6), a potato and leek soup with chives. A few popular menu items are still available, including the Steak Frites ($28), a 10-ounce ribeye steak with maître d’hotel butter and pomme frites, and the Croquet Monsieur ($12): country bread, French ham, Dijon, béchamel, and gruyére, available on the brunch and lunch menus. The cocktail offerings at Roux include seven different types of absinthe, each served with a sugar cube and chilled water. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail (all craft cocktails are $9), the new menu includes the Confidence Boost

which features Rittenhouse Rye, Byrrh, muddled strawberry, mint, and Blanche de Chambly. There’s also the Backyard Barbeque: Plymouth, Cynar, Salers, squid ink, egg white, lemon, Peychaud’s Bitters, with a Laphroaig rinse. Squid ink in a cocktail? I’m in.

“Girls Can Tell” SATURDAY, APRIL 18 STURGES AUDITORIUM AT SUNY GENESEO, 1 COLLEGE CIRCLE, GENESEO 2 P.M. | FREE FOR MORE ON KATE ROYAL, VISIT KATEROYAL.WEEBLY.COM

Sipping coffee in Boulder Coffee on Park Avenue, Kate Royal sits at what she determines is “the best seat.” She’s surrounded by local art, and it’s a suitable vibe for her. This could be her office. Ask Royal about modern theater or female playwrights and she’ll jump in and debate like a seasoned erudite. And when she stakes claims, like, “Tennessee Williams is better than Arthur Miller,” Royal isn’t blowing pompous air. Rather, she genuinely wants to have these discussions. It’s a passion that’s contagious, and it’s led Royal to write four full-length plays, three of which have been produced. The latest — “Girls Can Tell,” a drama about campus sexual assault — is set to premiere April 18 at SUNY Geneseo. Like most artists and writers, Royal is hardest on herself. She’s only 23 years old, 10 CITY APRIL 8-14, 2015

but that’s a problem: she’s somehow behind schedule. “Lucy Prebble had a play on the West End by 23,” Royal says. “Lena Dunham had her own show by 23. I’m behind.” But that’s hardly the case. Royal has emerged as one of Rochester’s most exciting new playwrights. Capturing the spirit of today’s millennials with a ferocious authenticity, her characters are often transparent, neurotic, and on their phones. Royal’s work has earned her an artist-in-residence position at the Multiuse Community Cultural Center, where she’s developed and workshopped a number of projects. During last year’s Rochester Fringe Festival, she debuted “The Nameless Days of Gumdrop Smith,” an absurdist play with an androgynous lead who subverts gender and sexual identity. Most recently, Royal premiered “Mammoth,” a millennial drama about a group of estranged siblings who reunite to clean out their parent’s home. “Mammoth” showcased Royal’s potential to construct powerful, realistic 21st-century characters, and it built up a buzz around town about her. “It was in process for so long,” Royal says about “Mammoth,” rolling her eyes and thinking back. She’s proud but exhausted. “I tinkered with it for close to four years.” “Mammoth” was effective because it felt so easy: a couch, a kitchen table, two brothers,

and a sister. Characters watch TV together, drink, and check their phones. A rock band, The National, serenades scene changes, and throughout the play, these siblings attempt to confront the issues that once drove them apart. But communication doesn’t come easy. “When I first heard Kate Royal’s ‘Mammoth,’” says John Borek, director of artistic development at MuCCC, “I knew that I was witnessing the work of a young playwright with extraordinary gifts. I had a sense of discovery … someone who can capture the idiom of her generation and can also capture the silence as well.”

At times, “Mammoth” seemed scriptless, as if it was all just improvised. However, every verbal pause or hesitation — “Ums,” “f**ks,” “I just,” the diatribes of a Facebook generation — was written in to the script. It’s a sharp voice with a finger on the pulse, seizing the spirit of today’s neurotic, hyper-connected-butdisconnected millennials. “I love human speech,” Royal says. “I love how strange it is. How funny it is. How you can have these intense, big moments, but they can be so easily undercut by something silly and stupid. Young people, specifically, have the most absurd language and speaking rhythms.”

Royal describes her own writing voice as an “uncynical realist.” This notion fits her personality, too. At first glance she’s reserved, but at unexpected moments her quirky and almost whimsical sense of humor seeps out. Royal has an understated smile that basks in the spotlight of awkward silences — it’s hard not to think of Liz Lemon, Tina Fey’s character on the TV show “30 Rock” (but that might be because of the glasses). She scoffs at the contemporary notion that reality driven narratives must be wholly negative, calling this pervasive (often maledriven) theater, “masturbatory pessimism.” Rather, Royal is more concerned with writing character driven stories that directly reflect both the immediate audience and the wider culture at large. “My goal as a writer is always to create characters whose chief objective is to be understood,” Royal says, “discovering the extent to which that is or isn’t possible is the source of [my] drama.” Unlike her plays — with characters who often scream at each other, desperately trying to be understood — Royal seems completely comfortable in her own skin. She’s a native of Tappan, New York, a suburb not far from Manhattan. She came to SUNY Geneseo originally targeting a career as an English


teacher. And while it’s not farfetched to see Royal teaching English, SUNY Geneseo introduced her to student theater and the relationship blossomed. “At SUNY Geneseo there was a lot of learning-by-doing,” Royal says. “Student theater gave me chances to make my own opportunities.” This is where she wrote her first full-length play, “Other Women,” a drama about a grieving widow who invites over the mistress of her deceased husband. The story came from a real-life scenario that Royal had overheard, and the production was only meant as a one-off experience. But after seeing “Other Women” produced (she also directed it), Royal knew that she was hooked. “I saw my characters on stage, and it was just … Well, I’ll just say that I have only written plays ever since. I don’t know why people don’t write only plays. Your characters are alive and in front of you. Did they not tell you how this worked?” Royal graduated in 2013 from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor’s degree in Theater and English. Since, Rochester has played an essential role in developing Royal’s young career, where in addition to her artist-in-residence at MuCCC, she works in the box office at Geva Theatre Center. “Rochester is a smaller scene but professional,” Royal says. “You can get good work done here. There’s a freedom to produce what you want. It’s helped me to build a solid foundation.”

Like in her other plays, Royal has committed to building characters the audience can believe in. Michelle and Jason are innocent in many ways, and guilty in others. They are products of their environment, and yet, are entirely accountable for their own actions. “I had to be careful not to settle on easy character definition,” Royal says. “It was important to me that both characters are sympathetic. We can’t keep talking about rape in these absolute terms. We can’t keep looking at people as only rapist and victim — instantly victimizing one person and demonizing the other.” “It’s hard to walk away from a Kate Royal script without empathizing with multiple characters,” says Emily Putnam, a local actress who appeared in “Mammoth,” and will soon play Michelle in “Girls Can Tell.” “She creates honest, fully realized worlds in which her incredibly thoughtfully-written characters thrive.” Royal hopes that college audiences, specifically, can identify with her characters and this story. “Students should be able to watch this and feel like their experiences are being accurately portrayed,” she explains. The performance on April 18 at SUNY Geneseo will feature a talk-back after the show, and potentially a panel to discuss the topic in more serious detail. Royal hopes, in the least, that “Girls Can Tell” will start a conversation.

Royal’s latest play, “Girls Can Tell,” is her most ambitious work yet. It’s also her most present, focusing on the outbreak of sexual assault on college campuses around the U.S. In the play, the character Michelle is only weeks from graduation. At a party she finds Jason, an amiable lacrosse player with whom she has a crush. They both get drunk and begin to make out, but Michelle draws a line that Jason crosses. In the aftermath, Michelle discovers that rape isn’t as clearly defined as she once thought, not in today’s society, not in her own mind. She’s met with a culture of friends and professors that either doubt her, try to lighten up the situation, or motivate her to just forget the thing entirely. Royal considers herself a burgeoning activist, so the motivation for writing “Girls Can Tell” was innate. She says she was weary, however, of the downfalls that come from writing an activist play: that the finished product can sometimes suffer when an overt agenda is prioritized over the development of characters. In the writing process she confronted this problem directly and committed to keeping “Girls Can Tell” character-centric. “No one is writing about college sexual abuse, unless they’re intentionally trying to be controversial about it,” Royal says. “As a writer I’m offended by this. You’re not doing it for the right reasons. “These ‘issue-plays’ are political, but they’re not very compassionate,” she adds. “Don’t make these people feel even more alienated.”

In the fall, Royal is moving to Evanston, Illinois, to work on her MFA in Writing for the Screen and Stage at Northwestern University. It was a decision she labored over, whether to even pursue a master’s degree at all. “I was expecting to just move to New York,” she says. “I wasn’t hearing back from schools, and I had this friend on the Upper West Side with a room opening up. I got this interview at Northwestern. I honestly didn’t think much would come from it. I had nothing to lose, really.” Royal was accepted into a Northwestern program that admits only 12 people. She decided that she belonged in academia, at least for a couple more years, finding great value in the motivation that comes from writing in a network — like what she’s experienced here in Rochester. “I love what Rochester has done for me, and what I’ve been able to do here,” Royal says, admitting, however, that she’s ready for a bigger stage. “I’m looking to be challenged. I’m looking to grow — even if it means being kicked to the curb a few times.” Until her move, Royal will use her time to keep working. She is hoping to pull a production of “Girls Can Tell” together within Rochester city. She’ll also keep pondering about what it means to be a writer. “All writers are perverts,” she asserts with a laugh, echoing the sentiments of one of her favorite authors, Ian McEwan. “The writer’s job is to empathize, foremost, but at the end of the day, we’re all just voyeurs. We take sick pleasure in appropriating other’s tragedies.” rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

The hurt is palpable on this new CD from Wales Road. But the way Tommy Wales deals with it in myriad manifestations of anger, rage, and sadness, offers a way out for the listener and himself. Wales is a holy rock ‘n’ roller who leans heavily on secular influence when it comes to the guitar. The sound here is dark and heavy, veering frequently into straight-up metal territory. The unfortunate end to Wales’ marriage weighs heavy in the man’s lyrical content on this CD. This is easily some of his best, most concise guitar playing to date. In the end, it’s what will save him.

It’s about being in a band again, making sure everyone is OK in their life; reconnecting.

City: Why the Guided By Voices tribute show? Darren DeWispelaere: It was initially my idea.

[ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

If Rochester can be viewed as a microcosm of music happening on a grander scale, then you can easily define its own Veluxe. The band emerged in the early aughts as an answer to the previous decade’s slick, big rock bloat. It would be purely by definition that this is a pop band of the highest order except for the fact that the band sticks with the hooks and melodies while shunning the plastic sugar. The band’s live performance is purely celebratory and reactionary, there ain’t a lot of unnecessary show biz fizz. There is however, beauty — beauty challenged by the dynamics of a solid rock outfit set on doing the music’s bidding and coming on tres cool in the process. Life stepped in and the band went away. Life stepped in again two years later and Veluxe is back. It’s easing its way back in the pool by hosting a Guided By Voices tribute show with multiple guests. Part of Veluxe — Darren DeWispelaere, vocals and guitar; Adam Porter, guitar; and Tim Elswick, bass — stopped by City Newspaper for a chat. Drummer Steve Daniels couldn’t make it. Those who could discussed getting back together, recording, and 14 CITY APRIL 8-14, 2015

We hadn’t been playing for a while. We had a hiccup in the band two years ago and honestly, we really needed a little bit of a break. At that point we’d been together 11 years. I was playing at the time with Attic Abasement. That was getting some traction and we were touring a bit. I was focusing a little more on that. What precipitated getting back together this way? DeWispelaere: It got to the point that we missed

playing together and we figured this was a good way to get back into things. We’d done a tribute to the Archers Of Loaf before. And I figured Guided By Voices had been one of my favorite bands and an influence on our songwriting so we decided we’d do it with everyone and we’d be the house band. Was this the band coming clean about the influence or just for fun? DeWispelaere: I think a little bit of both. I’d

be hard pressed to say my songwriting was anywhere near the level of Bob Pollard’s or Doug Gillard or any of the guys who wrote songs for Guided By Voices — they’re just so freakin’ prolific it’s ridiculous. They write these songs that are so anthemic that you automatically feel like you’ve heard them already and immediately identify with them.

year, a lot of stuff going on in my personal life and these guys have had my back like nobody’s business. This is the one thing in my life that’s constant and healing and rejuvenating. Not to be cheesy, but it’s the power of rock ‘n’ roll. These are my brothers. So what’s the Veluxe writing process? DeWispelaere: It depends. Sometimes we’ll

just hang out and jam. Someone will have a slight idea and we’ll noodle around and things will start to develop and it might turn into a song. Elswick: We have a very eclectic set of strengths that we bring in. I’m a melody hog. Adam is an extraordinary, technically proficient guitar player; he knows all the notes … all of them. Darren has a scope of everything, and Steve is an incredibly fabulous, dedicated drummer. He always has game. Any releases in the immediate future? DeWispelaere: In this day and age I just

want to record a song and put it up and once we get enough songs, let’s put a collection together, maybe put a record together, I dunno. Elswick: It might not be released, but that’s whatever. It’s the best fucking music in the world. There’s so much life in it, and there’s so much poetic justice. But you guys have a relatively large back catalog. Why have you been sitting on it? DeWispelaere: We’re perfectionist and kind

of got up our own asses.

The next phase of Veluxe, what is it? Porter: Getting over the fact we have to put

out perfect material and we can put out what we make. DeWispelaere: We’re not delusional, but why worry about it? We don’t need to be validated by popularity.

Out of the Blue. Sticky Lips BBQ AMERICANA | BALLROOM THIEVES

It’s a trio, alright, though Ballroom Thieves may occupy the space a little outside the textbook Americana dirt road bailiwick. Hailing from Boston, this guitar, bass, and drums threesome seethes and rages like a preacher who has run out of things to say. The urgency and might is something this band achieves without the temptation of electricity and volume. The band stomps and howls. Come to the show and you’ll do the same, I promise.

Just a man “The Mountaintop” REVIEWED SATURDAY, APRIL 4 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 26 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BOULEVARD TICKETS START AT $25 | CALL 232-4382 OR VISIT GEVATHEATRE.ORG FOR SPECIFIC DATES AND TIMES [ REVIEW ] BY KEVIN CARR

“I’m just a man, just a man,” says a trembling Martin Luther King Jr. in Katori Hall’s award-winning play, “The Mountaintop.” It’s a powerful piece of historical fiction, playing through April 26 at Geva Theatre’s Wilson Mainstage. Martin Luther King Jr. (Royce Johnson) returns to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis after reciting his momentous speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.” The Geva production opens with a stirring excerpt, but as King hits the stage, a contrast occurs and the audience must divorce legend from man. “Get me a pack of Pall Malls,” King yells. King shakes the rain off his weathered clothes as he settles into his room. He is fervent and continues to work, but exhausted. He coughs a smoker’s hack and orders coffee, pacing and waiting with holes in his socks — paranoid, as he checks his room for bugging devices. Camae (Joniece Abbott-Pratt), a spirited, young, and foul-mouthed motel maid, delivers his coffee and King coaxes 18 CITY APRIL 8-14, 2015

her to stay. The two move around each other like a subtle dance. What begins as serendipitous flirtation develops into something more: a fateful rendezvous. Camae and King challenge each other’s beliefs — exploring culture, religion, and legacy. It’s April 3, 1968: King’s last night on earth. Forty-seven years to the day of MLK’s

assassination, which occurred on April 4, 1968, Geva opened “The Mountaintop,” Rochester’s debut of Katori Hall’s landmark play. It premiered in London in 2009, and quickly became a hit, eventually winning Best New Play at the Laurence Olivier Awards. The work has been produced globally, including a run on Broadway in 2011 with Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett in the lead roles. Now, Royce Johnson takes his turn as the man behind the legend. Johnson is a veteran of the stage and small screen, appearing in many Off-Broadway productions (“A Soldier’s Play,” “The Brother/Sister Plays”), and TV credits that include “Law & Order: SVU,” “The Blacklist,” and the upcoming “Marvel’s Daredevil” (Netflix). His portrayal of King is complex and a treat to watch: grandiose but flawed. There’s a familiar stance, a recognizable head tilt. The MLK we know from videos and speeches comes alive, but it’s merged with something unfamiliar: King as a terrified human, sometimes harsh and rude, who in the quiet moments cannot shake the fear.

Joniece Abbott-Pratt has performed all across the country and brings fresh energy to Camae. There is sensuousness to her portrayal. She is both simple and elegant — a joy to watch. Johnson and Abbott-Pratt have a chemistry that gives the production a comfortable pace. It never feels drawn out, even without an intermission. When “The Mountaintop” ends, you feel cheated out of a few extra moments with this couple. Both characters do suffer, slightly, from a script that isn’t quite certain what it wants to accomplish. And the production does a lot of work to remove the legend from the man, only to, by the end, (which, admittedly, is breathtaking) reinforce King as a legendary — almost mythic — man. Camae’s character reflects a couple of weak points in the script, too. After her third foul-mouthed rant, her dialogue feels less natural and authentic and more like an obvious tool, or dependable crutch to break the tension with an easy joke: cussing in front of a reverend. Otherwise, “The Mountaintop” excels on almost every level. Robert Koharchik’s set design is gorgeous and impressive: a big, beautiful highway sign hangs above the set, like a moon, with a double-queen motel room below, a balcony wrapping around it. Given King’s imminent assassination, it’s hard to ever feel comfortable watching this room, and that’s the point. The bullet is due the next day, and we can feel the doom settling over every joke, laugh, and cough. Despite the production’s (although emotionally effective) heavy-handedness, director Skip Greer’s “The Mountaintop” is captivating and inspiring. It’s a mustsee production that will make you stand up and cheer. It serves as a reminder that our heroes were once also human, and it ends with a call: maybe we, too, could be heroes. That was King’s vision: the one he saw from the mountaintop. Sitting in the audience, it is impossible not to feel the call.

human being, with his own needs to fulfill. They’re reverent needs, they come out of respect, not abuse. That subject is important to me because, in a family like mine, or the one described in the novel, you show love by doing what your elders want. But the American way is something different. And so that’s what’s getting reconciled in the novel. Do you think it’s common for those who didn’t experience such trauma firsthand to want to relive the stories more than the survivors themselves?

Boris Fishman, author of “A Replacement Life,” will visit Rochester this week. His novel was selected as part of the Writers & Books Debut Novel Series. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

Swapping stories Boris Fishman WILL BE IN ROCHESTER APRIL 9 THROUGH APRIL 11 HOSTED BY WRITERS & BOOKS FOR A FULL SCHEDULE, VISIT WAB.ORG OR CALL 473-2590 [ INTERVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Writers & Books this week will present a series of events with debut novelist Boris Fishman, whose critically-acclaimed, witty and moving novel, “A Replacement Life,” draws on his own life experiences as an immigrant from the former USSR, and a grandchild of a Holocaust survivor. The grandmother of Fishman’s young protagonist, Slava Gelman, has just died, taking her secreted stories of surviving the Minsk Ghetto with her. When Slava is persuaded by his grandfather into falsifying Holocaust restitution letters for himself and his Russian friends, he’s drawn back into the immigrant community he’s fought to leave behind him. City Newspaper spoke with Fishman regarding the themes of immigrant experience, moral ambiguity, and the progression of shifting identity. Following is an edited version of that conversation. For a longer interview with Fishman, visit rochestercitynewspaper.com. City: Some of this story is based on autobiographical experience — you were born in Belarus, and helped your grandmother fill out restitution paperwork. How did you develop the idea for the forgeries of experience? Boris Fishman: When I was filling out my

grandmother’s paperwork in real life, I was kind of struck by the fact that the application didn’t require any proof, because so many people don’t

have any kind of confirmation that they went through what they went through. A matter of historical record became a matter of storytelling — if you could just tell a good story, you were in. And I just started thinking about whether somebody would have a reason to do this that wasn’t evil. Because I wanted to present a sort of morally complex portrait — like somebody who is using a sort of sacred experience toward dubious ends. And yet, how dubious are they? Legally, no question, but morally, maybe it’s a complex picture. After his grandmother dies and Slava loses the option of learning about her Holocaust stories, he begins imagining her experiences as a means of feeling closer to her. Though it’s understandable that he wants to feel connected to his family history, she didn’t seem to want her life to be defined by that part of her past. Why do you think Slava places — and why do we place — so much emphasis on the most traumatic parts of a life?

Because Slava’s life is larger than being his grandmother’s grandson. He has his own desires and needs for information, and the substance and history and legacy and heritage that helps him to feel like a whole human being. Some of that depends on a disclosure of things that she went through. The irony here is that he wants to feel closer to her, but in order to feel closer to her, which is what she wants, he has to hurt her, in a way, by forcing her to talk about something she doesn’t want to talk about. That all goes back to this tragedy that is particular to immigrants. There’s so much distance between the parents and the children, because they’re having such different experiences. But the ultimate answer is, Slava does not define himself entirely by his grandmother’s needs. As respectful as he wants to be, he’s his own

Absolutely, because there’s a hunger for experience, a hunger for substance, and you exoticize that experience. I don’t want to romanticize it, but what makes for good stories, whether orally, or between the covers of a book? It’s drama, and trauma, and conflict, and how people survive trying circumstances. Well, World War II and the Holocaust are ripe for storytelling because they’re full of drama and conflict and suspense and danger, but partly because it’s inconceivable that that could have happened. And 70 years later, it remains inconceivable. You give your readers a very intimate look into a complex community of immigrants. What do you think Americans don’t understand about the experience of immigrants, and that of the children of immigrants?

That’s really important too. Because I do find, as I get older, that no matter how well-meaning someone’s curiosity or goodwill is, it’s simply impossible to come inside another person’s grief or trauma. There’s a tremendous amount of interest in immigrant culture and immigrant literature, but no matter how much Americans read about it, I don’t think it’s possible to understand the sense of discomfort, stranded-ness, and inadequacy that accompanies the experience. Maybe the literature’s failing to convey it viscerally enough. I think Americans are reading these books because they explore experiences that are far more traumatic than what they themselves have gone through, but also more vibrant. Slava is trying to form an individual identity amid the tension of two worlds that he can’t completely access, which shows in (Slava’s friend and co-worker) Arianna’s instruction on American Jewishness, his grandfather’s generation’s cunning survival skills, and Slava’s failed attempts with that lavender suit. How does his struggle with those two worlds compare with your own experience?

It’s identical. Slava wants to work at Century because it’s WASP-y. There’s a kind of self-loathing that immigrants have, which is especially true sometimes for Jews who were made to feel very bad about being Jewish in the Soviet Union. So you come here, and you want to be like the clean, nice-smelling people, to put it crudely. But what Slava learns is that he does his best work when he’s around ‘barbarians’ like himself. Time does its thing, regardless, and in three generations, Slava will be Arianna. But you can only rush that so much. For now, his best work will come from being with grandfather.

ART | “PRETTY PAIN: NEW WORKS BY LEA”

SPECIAL EVENT | WINE AND CULTURE

FESTIVAL | ROCHESTER EROTIC ARTS FESTIVAL

Way back in 2008, 1975 Gallery’s first show featured three talented emerging artists: Sarah C. Rutherford, Adam Francey, and Lea Rizzo (artwork pictured). All three have since been featured as WALL\THERAPY muralists, two have a successful practice as tattoo artists (Francey and Rizzo), two are members of the Sweet Meat Co. artist collective (Rutherford and Rizzo), and two co-founded The Yards Collaborative Art Space in 2011 (Rutherford and Rizzo).

Rochester Deaf Rotary Club is holding a fundraising event that involves speaking in sign language and drinking in wine-language. Wine and beer tastings, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, raffles, and a silent auction will provide the backdrop for socializing at this gathering at Holiday Inn. Any who are interested in improving their signing fluency can attend a beginner ASL lesson held an hour before the event. Wine and Culture will fund the purchase of a ShelterBox, which provides emergency housing and supplies for displaced families in disaster-relief areas. Tickets can be purchased online, by mail, or in person at the event. All attendees must be over 21 years old.

Whatever your kink, the Rochester Erotic Arts Festival is all about taking some time to slow down and letting the art of sexuality sink in. This year’s two-day festival will feature the White Elephant Burlesque Society — known for its body positivity and social commentary, while being steam-hot — the REAF debut of the Rochester Gay Men’s Chorus, RIT’s Eight Beat Measure, Aerial Arts, Bombshell Belly Dance, Drag King Revue, Tangents Pole Aerobics, and Saraswati’s Sisters. The festival will also feature a Hot Rod Betties Fashion Show; an annual favorite, The Rope Fashion Show; and around 30 workshops, including Sex Ed for Adventurous Adults, burlesque, and five workshops especially for artists — ranging from drawing and photography to writing. On Saturday evening things turn up a notch with the Erotic Playground and the Erotic Masquerade ball.

All these years later, each of the three have recently returned to 1975 with a solo showing of current work. The final in the trio of shows, “Pretty Pain: New Works by Lea,” opens Saturday, April 11, and will offer a glimpse into the artist’s process, and feature blends of tattoo style with lovely illustrative portraiture. Her work often features dreamy pin-up dolls, beautifully phrased sentiments in stylized script, and mythic hybrids of humans and animals. Here, she’ll also spotlight some familiar faces and their iconic ink. The opening reception will take place 7 to 10 p.m., and the show will continue through May 1. Learn more and RSVP to the event at http://on.fb.me/1HIHy39.

And it’s no (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JAMES WAN surprise that Walker’s ghost looms large over the NOW PLAYING finished product, as it should. But the often elegiac atmosphere (please try [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO and keep up with the big words, Vin Diesel) in no way detracts from the relentlessly entertaining How’s tricks, Vin Diesel? I hope you’re not tired “Furious 7,” which somehow one-ups previous of my letters. I manage to confine them to one “F&F” installments in terms of gravity-defying every two years, because all I want to talk about set pieces, stupid dialogue, juicy girl-butts, and with you (or with anyone, really) are the “Fast emotional heart. and Furious” movies. You’ll remember that we The brilliant coda to “Furious 6” tied the originally had plans for July 2014, until your coliberal “F&F” chronology together (it kind of star Paul Walker’s untimely death during a break goes 1-2-4-5-6-3 and now 7, right?) and set the from filming the latest chapter set into motion a stage for a swaggering Jason Statham as Deckard mad, sad scramble to rework the story and salvage Shaw, intent on avenging his brother. With a seemingly limitless travel budget, Shaw heads to Los Angeles to steal some information and temporarily incapacitate Agent Hobbs (the colossal Dwayne Johnson), then he’s off to deal with that nasty business in Tokyo, then it’s back to L.A. to begin facing off against your Dom Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Kurt Russell in “Furious 7.” PHOTO COURTESY Toretto and his crew. UNIVERSAL PICTURES

And then everyone convenes in Azerbaijan because the awesome Kurt Russell says so. You got Snake Plissken himself as Mr. Nobody, a government spook who supplies the gang with an excuse to parachute cars into the Caucasus Mountains, save a gorgeous hacker, and use her skills to get the drop on the elusive Shaw. Yes, Vin Diesel, I’m thumbnailing your own plot for you, but it’s just so deliciously ridiculous. In 15 years a gaggle of dopey gearheads have morphed into an elite spy squad? I get that “Furious 7” is more turbocharged Mexican soap opera than Wiseman documentary, but the Abu Dhabi interlude drives this point home. In one opulent room MMA goddess Ronda Rousey and Michelle Rodriguez’s still-amnesiac Letty tussle in evening gowns, while Toretto and Walker’s Brian O’Conner cannon a million-dollar HyperSport between the upper floors of three luxury highrises. “Cars don’t fly,” O’Conner worriedly mentions to Toretto in midair, echoing the words imparted earlier to O’Conner’s little boy during playtime. But they did before, they do now, and come the killer conclusion, when Toretto lures the action back to the home-field advantage of L.A., they will again. Director Justin Lin can be credited with jumpstarting the franchise after reuniting your main quartet for 2009’s “Fast & Furious,” and as “Insidious” director James Wan takes the “Furious 7” reins, “F&F” is arguably the most lucrative property — excepting Bond,


The kids aren’t alright “While We’re Young” (R), DIRECTED BY NOAH BAUMBACH OPENS FRIDAY, APRIL 17, AT THE LITTLE AND PITTSFORD CINEMA [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

maybe — in Hollywood. Basically, screenwriter Chris Morgan and his predecessors realized nonwhite people enjoy movies, too, and respectfully reflecting its multicultural audience on the screen equates to a license to print money. (The stunning machinery, massive explosions, breathtaking collateral damage, and impossibly sexy cast don’t hurt, either.) Of course, the all-things-to-allpeople conceit sometimes means that members of this rainbow coalition get short shrift, like Lucas Black briefly reprising his starring role from “Tokyo Drift,” the dashing Djimon Hounsou as a bellowing warlord, or Muay Thai legend Tony Jaa as a persistent henchman. Oh, Vin Diesel, I’m not going to sit here and pretend I ever thought Paul Walker was a good actor; the kindest thing I could say was that he had been getting better, but, man, was that bar low. If I’m being honest, none of you are that great — I do miss Sung Kang as Han — yet the entrenched and undeniable chemistry among Dom Toretto and the friends he calls family have always made the “F&F” flicks more than the sum of their noisy parts. (Walker’s brothers standing in for reshoots, while not quite seamless, underscore the franchise’s reliance upon the notion of family.) And it’s this raw sentimentality that earns the very real tears brought upon by a denouement that’s both surprisingly tasteful and absolutely bittersweet. So until next time, Vin Diesel, ride or die. Your friend … I mean family, Dayna

It’s always been the prerogative of older generations to look upon the younger with a mix of disdain, apprehension, and occasional horror. As impossible as it is to pinpoint the exact moment when one transitions into the other, the growing sense of a younger generation nipping at your heels is an inevitable part of getting older. The quote from Henrik Ibsen’s “The Master Builder” that opens writer-director Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young” reminds us that this fist-shaking “kids today” mindset was already a thing way back in 1892. An intergenerational comedy of manners that pokes at our collective anxieties about aging, “While We’re Young” follows the friendship between two New York couples: middle-aged Generation-Xers Josh (Ben Stiller, prickly as ever) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts), and 20-something hipster bohemians Jamie (Adam Driver) and his wife Darby (Amanda Seyfried), who crash Josh’s documentary film class and end up charming their way into the lives of the older couple.

Josh and Cornelia have felt themselves drifting away from their friends, most of whom have become consumed with the responsibilities of parenthood. Josh and Cornelia’s closest friends, played by Maria Dizzia and Adam Horovitz (also known as Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys) are the most recent casualties to have been sucked into the quicksand of adulthood. That a member of a hip-hop group so notorious for raging against parental authority is now a dad with salt-and-pepper hair and a baby strapped to his chest is more than just a cute joke, it’s basically the movie’s thesis. Josh and Cornelia’s own attempts at children have ended in miscarriages and discouragement, and they’ve gradually given up on the idea completely. Maybe it’s better this way, they think: being childless in New York grants them a freedom their peers will never see again. As Josh and Cornelia strike up a friendship with Jamie and Darby, they find themselves equally invigorated by and envious of the retro-chic existence of their youthful counterparts. With the younger couple’s encouragement, they enroll in hip-hop classes, take up bicycling, and participate in an ayahuasca ceremony in which they ingest hallucinogens as part of a vomit-filled cleansing ritual. It’s enough to get them out of the rut they’ve been stuck in and excited about the possibilities that life has to offer. But of course the honeymoon can’t last. A one-time documentary filmmaker, Josh has been tinkering with his current project for pushing a decade, and over the years it’s grown into a six-hour monstrosity; the type that requires him to tie himself in knots whenever he’s asked to pinpoint exactly what it’s “about.” He’s rejected any advice given to him by Cornelia’s father (underplayed nicely by Charles Grodin), a revered documentarian in the mold of Frederick Wiseman, whom Josh resents and respects in equal measure. Baumbach suggests that Josh’s insular nature is part of the problem, and the film becomes in part

about him learning to be more of a collaborator. An aspiring filmmaker in his own right, Jamie stumbles on an intriguing idea for a documentary, convincing Josh to mentor him as he puts it to film. As their partnership evolves, the film slowly morphs into an examination of the sometimes dubious ethical boundaries of the younger generations. “While We’re Young” transcends a potentially sitcom-y premise with a sharp tone and witty observations about generational appropriation, the nature of authenticity, and the blurry line between truth and fiction. The third act, in which Josh becomes preoccupied with proving that Jamie’s a fraud, allows a little too much of Baumbach’s own righteous anger to bubble to the surface; it comes across as the director wagging his finger, and he wants those youngsters off his lawn, dammit. But this is a minor complaint in a film that maintains a mostly light touch while delivering some sharp insights. As a filmmaker, Baumbach has always been preoccupied with characters who have trouble taking the next step toward adulthood, whether that be the adolescents living with their parents’ bitter divorce in “The Squid and the Whale” or the funk of post-college young adulthood faced by the characters in “Kicking and Screaming” and the director’s wonderful “Frances Ha.” That film in particular reveled in its character’s self-absorption, but was ultimately a more fair-minded and sympathetic depiction of the millennial generation. That Jamie doesn’t come across as a complete cartoon is a testament to Driver’s likeable screen presence. Watts deliverers her loosest, funniest performance in years, and though Seyfried is good, her character suffers from not being as sharply defined as those around her. In depicting these battles between the generations, “While We’re Young” understands that all-too-familiar feeling that no matter our age, we’re all just pretending to be grownups.

Cozy Colonial Revival on Collingwood 58 Collingwood Drive As St. Paul Boulevard weaves its way northward along the eastern banks of the Genesee River, it passes over what was once a grand roundabout at the beginning of Veterans Bridge and arrives at the entrance of Seneca Park, one of our many treasured Frederick Law Olmsted designed parks. Directly across the boulevard is the northern terminus of the El Camino Trail and Collingwood Drive, one of several residential streets to be developed along St. Paul Boulevard in the vicinity of Seneca Park in the 1920s. The home at 58 Collingwood Drive was built by the original owners Raymond and Myrtle Vogler in 1925 to unsigned plans that still remain with the house. Ray was a machinist at the Kodak Hawkeye Building and passed away unexpectedly in 1933. Myrtle remained in their house until finally selling in 1974. The beautifully landscaped grounds frame the eclectic Colonial Revival exterior and lead you from the tree-lined street to an elegant arched overhang above the shallow brick stoop. Entering into the vestibule, a geometric leaded glass door leads to the light-filled living room; to your left a pair of French doors lead to the exterior front porch complete with built-in trellises. The decorative fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases and leaded glass windows on the far wall is the highlight of the room, while directly opposite, a broad arch frames the stair to the second floor with another geometric leaded glass window. Through a pair of folding leaded glass doors, the dining room impresses with stained

gumwood woodwork and gleaming oak floors (found throughout the house). A bay window and another decorative leaded glass window provide ample light, while a small powder room behind a paneled door provides convenience. The kitchen is large and generous for a house this size and features high quality cabinetry, granite counters, an island for gathering, and access to the side entry and basement stairs. Proceeding upstairs another leaded glass door at the landing provides added privacy. Natural light is abundant in each of the three unique bedrooms and shared bathroom. One has a built-in armoire and a sleeping porch; the master features its own dressing room and the attic stairs. The attic has ample storage and has been professionally finished as a perfect informal den. The basement is clean, dry, and has some bonus utilities, with a tankless hot water heater and back-up generator system. The spacious backyard is a quiet landscaped oasis with a raised rear deck near the two-car detached garage and separate shed. This 1,322 square foot home is a polished gem that has it all.
