Developing Charlotte On city officials’ selection of a development proposal for Charlotte:
The key problem here is that many people in this area have been involved with this process, and this is not what they were working on. Again and again [at the city’s informational meetings], they asked why the unique nature of the area was not considered by this project, and Mark Gregor [the city’s project manager for the Charlotte development] never had an answer. When the zoning was proposed the question of height was raised, and council members and city officials promised they would not allow towers in the port district. Apparently things have changed. Mark Gregor said they did not want rental in this project but could not explain how the townhouses in the plan are not listed as for-sale units. The city was clear that there will be no subsidized or low-income housing, though there will be some market rate – even though the builder claims they will apply for lowincome-housing tax credits. As for questions about emergency services, the city admitted they may need to examine this. Many wanted to know what studies were done to show a demand for this sort of building, and Mark Gregor could only claim that he was sure the developer had done this. Asked about the city’s financial contribution to this project, they claimed that is open to negotiations but would not rule out tens of millions of dollars of city funds in the form of grants and loans. With all this evasion and misinformation, it should not be surprising that the public is angry. Despite years of working with residents, the city did not 2 CITY

mention the idea of towers until recently. They failed to get input and seem to have raced into this without considering how city services will be stretched in Charlotte by such a project. The city’s financial obligations and tax returns were not mentioned, and so as usual the public was unable to weigh the benefits verse the costs. So the public was asked to trust the city to make this right, but unfortunately too many of the residents had been disappointed or deceived too often in this area, and they are unwilling to continue to just believe. ALEX WHITE
I think the city’s reasoning for building a high-density development project is valid and well thought out. If people are upset about the high rises, they should consider moving to the town of Hamlin, which likely won’t be the site of highdensity development in the foreseeable future. JOHN SMITH
This just sounds so disastrous for Charlotte. Nobody ever asks the question: Once this project is completed, who has the responsibility for the marketing and sales of the project till it reaches full occupancy? What will the annual marketing and sales budget be, and who will be responsible for that appropriation? Where will the money come from in the five years it will take to establish this project once it is completed? Get somebody to ask that question publicly and watch everybody back up: the developer, the city and the Port commission. Just another development without any long-term planning or infrastructure established up front. More empty structures is my prediction. KC KATHY BAUMERT SCHULIK
We need to walk before we run. I do believe there’s a market for new housing and even a hotel, but not the quantity proposed. Rather than offering three acres, the city should just offer one. Once that shows success, then open some more property for development. I think that that’s what most of the residents are afraid of: vacancies.
On the other hand, there already are two high rises in Charlotte. We are such small thinkers. There are 1.1 million people in Rochester, and we have the most pitiful waterfront. JOHNNY
Highland and its neighbors
On Highland Hospital’s expansion proposal: As per the Defend
Urban Neighborhoods website, Highland owned the exact same property on Bellevue several years ago, and essentially used it as leverage to get an easement to build their new parking garage on South Avenue (which, BTW, did nothing to stop their employees parking on neighborhood streets). Then there's the continued interest in purchasing 428 Mt. Vernon, a large brick residence on a two-acre wooded lot directly abutting Highland Park. Add in continued problems with over-salting of sidewalks and continued refusal to acknowledge the ramifications of their smokefree policy (employees smoking near front yards of neighboring houses), and Highland Hospital has a bad reputation as a corporate neighbor. The overall problem is URMC: they paint a picture of being a good neighbor and involved in the city, but then they do stupid things like build their own exit ramp off I-390, which simply facilitates employees driving in from the suburbs. They then complain they need more parking spaces, instead of investing in bus services or other incentives to live close by. If they really gave a damn about the city, they’d ramp up parking costs and add value to city neighborhoods. Expanding Highland Hospital does the opposite. It really is the epitome of corporate doublespeak. In the interests of full disclosure, I live in the neighborhood and work at Strong. HIGHLAND HOTTIE
I live in the neighborhood, and find Highland a far better and more considerate neighbor than the Rochester City School District, including School 12. KATIE LASHWAY

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Can anyone ‘turn around’ a Rochester high school? I should be encouraged, I guess, that the University of Rochester is willing to consider becoming involved in the operations of East High School. I’ve been hopeful that local colleges and universities would try to help improve city schools, so if the UR interest pans out, that would be a good first step. But I’m not optimistic that the UR can work miracles at East. Intervening at the junior-senior high level is way too late. In the 2012-2013 school year, only 2 percent of East’s seventh graders were “proficient” in English Language Arts; only 1 percent in math. (“Proficient” to the state education department means meeting the state’s standards for that grade level.) In eighth grade, 3 percent were proficient in ELA, and 0 percent (yes, 0 percent) were proficient in math. We can pretty much predict what kind of future is ahead for the non-proficient students. District officials have pulled together data showing what happened over four years to the students who took the 8th grade ELA and math tests in 2009. Only 13 percent of those who scored at the bottom on the tests graduated in four years. Seventy-six percent of those scoring at the second highest level (“proficient”) and 94 percent of those who scored at the top level (“excels”) graduated four years later. But why did students do so poorly on those seventh and eighth-grade tests? The faculty didn’t suck out the knowledge that the seventh graders had when they arrived at East. The plain truth is that the students weren’t ready to start seventh grade. They had gone through elementary school without learning enough to go to high school. And if you need proof, here it is: The combined average of all of the district’s students proficient in those two subjects in third through eighth grade was only 5 percent. How do students get to third, fourth, fifth grade and beyond without knowing more than they do? Obviously they’re being promoted from grade to grade when they’re not ready. And underlying all this, of course, is that many Rochester children don’t have the language and social skills they need to even start kindergarten. If we don’t deal with these issues at the earlier stages, we can turn every single school over to outside agencies and still fail. This doesn’t negate the importance of having the UR involved with a city school. I just wish the involvement would start at an elementary school.
Why did students do so poorly on those seventh and eighth-grade tests? They weren’t ready to start seventh grade.” Letting us pray
Given the composition of the present Supreme Court, I wasn’t surprised at last week’s ruling approving of prayers at Greece Town Board meetings. The justices seem so clearly divided along ideological lines that it’s a surprise when a ruling doesn’t come out the way we feared. It hasn’t always been like this, Adam Liptak noted in the New York Times on Sunday. Ideology has played a stronger role in presidents’ court nominations recently than it once did. Gerald Ford, for instance, nominated the liberal John Paul Stevens. But the court is now as sharply divided as the nation is, Liptak wrote, and that’s not likely to change any time soon. That spells trouble in many areas, including religion’s growing influence on national policy. The court’s ruling on the Greece case shows us what could lie ahead. Nationally, more liberal, inclusive thought is winning on same-sex marriage, but it doesn’t take much imagination to think of areas in which the Supreme Court could help the religious right determine public policy: education, the arts, health care, foreign policy, criminal justice…. In their ruling on the Greece case, some of the justices implied that for the Town Board to invite clergy to open meetings with prayer is no big deal. But it is a big deal. And I don’t like where it may lead us.
[ NEWS FROM THE WEEK PAST ]
New York State Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy says he will not be on the ticket when Governor Andrew Cuomo runs for re-election this fall. Duffy says that the job’s frequent travel is difficult for him physically, and that he refuses to cut back. Speculation about Duffy’s replacement as well as Duffy’s future continues. Many expect Rochester’s former mayor to take the top job with the Rochester Business Alliance when President and CEO Sandra Parker retires at the end of the year. Duffy applied for the job once before, but dropped out after the news became public.
Eastman House loses challenge
The George Eastman House lost its legal battle to prevent construction of a 99-unit apartment complex at 933 University Avenue. Multiple legal challenges by the Eastman House were struck down by state Supreme Court Justice Thomas Stander. The Eastman House fought the Morgan Management project from the beginning, saying that the nearby apartment complex would irreversibly damage the landmark property.
School board wants UR’s help The Rochester school
board agreed to work with the University of Rochester’s Warner Graduate School of Education to drastically improve East High School. The district is under orders from the State Education Department to come up with a plan to fix the poorly performing school. The plan is due by May 15, but the school board has asked for an extension.
UR to build cancer institute
The University of Rochester Medical Center launched a $30 million campaign to build the Wilmot Cancer Institute. It will combine URMC’s seven satellite cancer treatment centers and its research facilities into one organization, and it will extend the URMC’s reach.
Rossi is Eastman dean
Jamal Rossi was named dean of the Eastman School of Music. Rossi was appointed interim dean of the school in September 2013 following the illness and resignation of former dean Douglas Lowry. Board approval is pending, but is sure to come soon, University President Joel Seligman said during an announcement Tuesday.

TRANSPORTATION | BY JEREMY MOULE
Can bike sharing work in Rochester? Students, faculty, and staff at Nazareth College and Rochester Institute of Technology can borrow a bicycle from a shared pool to get around on and off campus. The schools have bike-sharing programs, just like countless other campuses and cities across the world. Public bike-sharing services, similar to those at Naz and RIT, could soon emerge in the Rochester area. The Genesee Transportation Council — the regional transportation planning organization for the nine counties around Rochester — is studying the feasibility of a regional bike-sharing program.
Planners and consultants are studying public interest in a potential program as well as demographic information, potential locations, financial factors, and possible benefits, says Rich Perrin, executive director of the Genesee Transportation Council. “In short, we’re looking at what is the business strategy to fund, set up, and operate a successful bikesharing system in the Rochester area,” Perrin says. Right now, planners and consultants are looking at what people are willing to pay to use a bike-sharing

service, among other data, Perrin says. They also want to hear from people who have experience with bike-sharing services, he says. The GTC will hold its first public meeting on the project from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, May 19, at the Central Library’s Kate Gleason Auditorium, 115 South Avenue. People will have a chance to learn about the study and to offer input at the meeting. The council also has a website devoted to the study, rocbikeshare.org. The council hopes to finish the study by the end of the year, Perrin says.

The closures of St. Mary’s and Genesee hospitals have increased the demands on Highland. And the hospital is badly in need of modernization. Some parts of the hospital are 90 years old, and the operating rooms are too cramped to accommodate advances in technology. [ TERI D’AGOSTINO, HIGHLAND HOSPITAL SPOKESPERSON ]
NEIGHBORHOODS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Highland Hospital plans addition Residents worry that Highland Hospital’s recently announced plans to build a two-story addition could upset the neighborhood’s delicate balance. Little breathing space exists between the hospital and its residential neighbors. The hospital has also purchased the house at 27 Bellevue Drive to use as office space. “We like having the hospital here, and I know it’s a great hospital,” says Kerry Regan, a Highland resident. “But we’d like to retain the nice residential character of the neighborhood. This neighborhood has been coming back, coming back, coming back, and it’s a really great place right now.” Regan is with Defending Urban Neighborhoods, which is an offshoot of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association. The group has signs throughout the neighborhood reading “Stop Hospital Sprawl.” The proposed addition is part of a long-range facilities master plan that hospital officials have been developing. It would be built off the back of the hospital on what is currently a hospital parking lot at the end of Bellevue. Each floor would be 15,000 square feet. But even though the addition would not technically increase the hospital’s footprint in the neighborhood, Regan says
there would be ancillary effects, such as the likelihood that more hospital employees would park on neighborhood streets. The closures of St. Mary’s and Genesee hospitals have increased the demands on Highland, says Teri D’Agostino, a spokesperson for Highland Hospital. And the hospital is badly in need of modernization, she says. Some parts of the hospital are 90 years ago, she says, and the operating rooms are too cramped to accommodate advances in technology. The addition would house six larger operating rooms, D’Agostino says, and allow the hospital to expand its current operating rooms. The total number of operating rooms would stay at 14. Highland would also add about 25 new observation beds, D’Agostino says, for people who may or may not need to be admitted. Those patients currently occupy inpatient beds, she says, and that backs up the emergency room. The new observation beds would allow the hospital to convert semi-private rooms to private rooms, she says. “The new standard of care is private rooms,” D’Agostino says. “People no longer expect to go to a hospital and be cared for with another patient in the same room.”

The target date to complete the addition is 2018. City Council and the State Department of Health must sign off before the project can proceed. About the Bellevue purchase, D’Agostino says Highland Hospital has a critical need for office space. The hospital has 27 programs in 30 different off-site locations, she says. No patient care programs would be housed at the Bellevue site, she says. D’Agostino wouldn’t say if the hospital plans to acquire additional properties in the neighborhood. Hospital officials want to work with Highland neighbors, she says, to get the best possible outcome for everyone.
ENTERTAINMENT | BY JAKE CLAPP
Little upgrade The Little’s Theater 1 is temporarily closed for upgrades that will allow the space to show films released in a digital format. Theater 1, the Little’s largest venue, should reopen by the end of May. Theaters 2-5 underwent similar upgrades during summer 2013. They will show films as normal while Theater 1 is being upgraded. While Theater 1 will gain digital capabilities, it will still house a reelto-reel projector, Little officials say, and will continue to show films in the traditional format. The Little is located at 240 East Avenue. In similar news, the Cinema Theater, 957 S. Clinton Avenue, recently got its own digital upgrade. The theater is hosting an Indiegogo campaign through May 24 to help defer some of the cost. The goal is to raise $3,000. The Little’s Theater 1 and the Cinema Theater are the latest local venues to undergo upgrades to accommodate the Digital Cinema Package — the official term for the digital film format. The Dryden Theatre installed a Barco digital projector in early 2013, while retaining its reel-to-reel projectors. New machines can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $150,000 per screen. In 2012, the National Association of Theater Owners estimated that 20 percent of the cinemas in the US — or nearly 10,000 screens — would not convert due to cost.

MAY 14-20, 2014
When Jessica Vittegleo started an Internet fund-raising campaign to buy and put up Little Free Libraries in Rochester, her goal was simple: to foster literacy and a love of reading in her South Wedge neighborhood. The libraries, which are tied into the national Little Free Library organization, are hand-painted boxes stuffed with books free for the taking. Neighbors are encouraged to return the books or leave one or two replacement books in the library. “There should be a better way for people to exchange their books, and the library just makes it easier,” Vittegleo says. Vittegleo says she thought she’d raise enough money to buy a few boxes, but the campaign was so successful she was able to buy 20. Most of the libraries have been installed in yards across the city. Half were put up by the Snowball Effect, a community group started by Vittegleo’s friend, Ken Braley. She gave all but a few of the remaining boxes to individuals or community groups, including R Community Bikes. The Little Free Libraries are one of many small-scale, independent projects happening in Rochester’s neighborhoods. It fits into an approach that is sometimes called tactical urbanism, which is centered on the idea that small, inexpensive actions can have long-term benefits for neighborhoods and communities. In Rochester, residents and groups have organized to convert vacant or idle lots into edible gardens. They’ve painted colorful, whimsical designs in intersections — with city permission — to draw attention to children playing nearby or pedestrians. And they’ve put up signs that direct people to local attractions and tell them how long it’d take to get there by foot or by bike.
These projects stand in deliberate contrast to expensive, high-profile development efforts such as the new construction at Midtown or the redevelopment of the Port of Rochester. They’re relatively inexpensive, and often require little government involvement. And yet they can have lasting impacts on blocks and neighborhoods. Vittegleo has a library box near her apartment in the Wedge. She says she hears children asking parents if they can take a book. And she says she’s watched people have discussions over the books they’ve taken from the box. The libraries have become a gathering place for neighbors to interact and share, she says. Tactical urbanism sounds more rebellious
than it is, though it can be difficult to define. In one sense, it’s a philosophical approach to challenges within urban environments. The term was coined by the Street Plans Collaborative in New York City. The firm, which blends urban planning and design with advocacy, has put out three guides to tactical urbanism. They’re available at streetplans.org. “It’s how we use very small-scale, inexpensive, often temporary initiatives and projects to seed long-term change,” says Mike Lydon, who is with Street Plans. The initiatives may be used to test an idea or to demonstrate the demand for things like public space, bike lanes, and transit, he says. The efforts can be carried out by individuals, informal groups, nonprofits, businesses, developers, or government agencies; intent matters more than who leads, Lydon says. Villages and denser suburban neighborhoods can benefit from some of the approaches, too, he says.
The tactics aren’t always sanctioned and are sometimes technically illegal, such as when people paint bike lane symbols or crosswalks on streets they think should have them. In New York City, the “20 is Plenty” speed reduction campaign uses replica speed limit signs to encourage drivers to slow down. The downtown wayfinding signs put up by Roc City 2.0 are a local example of an unsanctioned approach. Officials and other citizens aren’t always happy with these efforts, Lyndon says. But the tactics do raise issues, he says, and often lead to change. But many other tactics are used with government approval or buy-in. Last year, a couple of Rochester neighborhoods received city permission to temporarily close side streets so children had a place to play. On Earth Day, staff from SWBR Architects worked with businesses and other partners to convert a few Gibbs Street parking spots into a small park. SWBR’s offices are on Gibbs. Gibbs Street is an energized place, says Mark Maddalina, SWBR’s sustainable design director. On a mild spring day, it’s typical to see Eastman School of Music students singing on the corner, he says. But the temporary park provided a place for people to congregate. The project was also meant as a catalyst for conversations about the value of small green spaces in downtown neighborhoods. And that includes discussion of whether the neighborhood might be better off with a little less parking and a little more vegetation. “We, as architects, are always designing and redesigning and talking about how things should be,” Maddalina says.

Vacant and idle lots are a big problem in
some Rochester neighborhoods. Yet many of these same neighborhoods lack public green spaces. The owners of two area landscape firms saw a chance to help address the problem. Pietro Furgiuele of Waterford Tilling, along with Bruce Zaretsky and Sharon Coates of Zaretsky and Associates founded Project Scion, which has converted two vacant lots in stressed inner-city neighborhoods into parks. In both cases, the city approved the projects and regional businesses contributed materials. The firms tried to find properties that aren’t near other parks or green spaces. And they looked for neighborhoods with active community groups and residents who wanted to get involved. “We don’t just build something for the people,” Furgiuele says. “We build it with the people.” Project Scion made over a lot at Jay and Child streets in the JOSANA neighborhood in 2012. And it took on a lot at Dewey Avenue and Ravine avenues last year. The result: residents and groups are using the parks as community space. They have barbecues and movie nights. And some of the park’s neighbors have started gardens on their own properties, Furgiuele says. For 2014, Project Scion plans to work with neighborhood groups who have struggled getting their community gardens off the ground. “You help people and they’re going to start helping themselves,” Furgiuele says.

Authenticity south of the city Sai Gon 2171 WEST HENRIETTA ROAD 730-8178; SAIGONRESTAURANT.COM [ REVIEW ] BY DAVE BUDGAR
During the winter, one way I sustain myself is with steaming, head-clearing bowls of Vietnamese pho — which for me, serve the same purpose as a Swedish sweat lodge. As my friend and I arrived at the Sai Gon Restaurant in West Brighton, I decided that my tenure at the altar of soup should be suspended, and that tonight I’d venture beyond pho. It truly is difficult for me to sit down in a Vietnamese restaurant and not order pho, and there are several in the area that prepare it well, including Sai Gon. Five or six years ago, I didn’t even know what pho was. Now, restaurants serving Vietnamese cuisine have proliferated across the city. Opened fall 2013, Sai Gon is one of the newer entries in this assemblage. Sai Gon occupies a converted home on West Henrietta Road, in what used to be Thai Time and, before that, Portobello. Near the entrance is a small bar, which like the floor, tables, and chairs, is done in soothing dark wood. Similarly, most of the wall
hangings are in muted colors, contributing to a sense of calm. The one exception, a large backlit photograph of a waterfall scene with a superimposed rainbow, which seemed incongruous with the vibe — kind of like “My Little Pony” meets Zen. Our server, although extremely affable, was not consistently able to answer questions about menu items. Still, another staffer, who seemed to do a bit of everything, was able to thoroughly and patiently answer all our questions and provide recommendations. For an appetizer, he suggested the Turnip Cake with eggs as both delicious and unique to the Rochester restaurant scene, so I took his advice. It was a good decision. Served promptly and courteously, the Turnip Cake consisted of chunks of the root veggie, nicely charred and smoky (think home fries), slightly caramelized, piled in a ceramic “boat,” tossed with chopped scallions and bits of scrambled egg. The back of the “boat” used as a basin for soy sauce. This was a fabulous combination of both textures and flavors, and I especially liked the turnips dipped in a bit of Sriracha. My friend chose the Charbroiled Meatballs. The plate arrived with two skewers, each with five pork meatballs about the size
of cherry tomatoes, sprinkled with crushed peanuts, and accompanied by hoisin sauce for dipping. The lean meatballs had a pleasingly firm texture and an earthy sweetness. I gravitate toward food that shouts at me, so it didn’t take a lot of convincing to fall off the wagon and revert to my soup-slurping ways for the Spice Noodle Soup. My friend ordered the Shaken Beef, so named for the way it’s tossed in the wok during cooking, which happened to be the most expensive entree on the menu at $14.95. Most of the entrees at Sai Gon fall in the reasonable $7 to $8 range. The giant bowl of soup contained rice vermicelli, thinly sliced beef, and sliced semicircles of somewhat bland Vietnamese sausage that had the look of pâté but firmer. The soup was accompanied by a plate of basil, sliced jalapeños, bean sprouts, shredded red cabbage, and a wedge of lemon for individual customization. While not as spicy as advertised, the broth was rich and beefy with hints of lemongrass. The Shaken Beef, plated with rice, and combined with tomatoes, cucumber, onions, and cilantro, was meltingly tender and pleasingly redolent of garlic and fish sauce. Dessert consisted of Flan Cake and Sweet Pudding. Surprised to find flan on
something other than a Mexican menu, I learned that the French introduced crème caramel to the Vietnamese, who put their own unique spin on it by incorporating coffee into the mix, giving the flan a greater depth of tone and distinctive flavor. The Sweet Pudding was the most interesting dish we tried. Sometimes called Three-Color Dessert, it’s served in a tall glass and consists of layers of red beans and sugar, shards of green Jell-O, mashed mung beans and sugar, and shaved ice. All of this is drizzled with a coconut cream. The dish had a beautiful contrast of colors, textures, and flavors, but it was difficult for either of my friend or I to assimilate beans – with their texture and familiarity having more of a main-dish personality – into our cultural dessert milieu. On the way out, I asked about the green waffles sitting on the bar. They’re called Pandan Waffles, I learned, the green coloring coming from pandan leaf flavoring. When I learned they were flavored with coconut, and only cost $3 for two, I was sold. The next morning, I heated them in a toaster oven and ate them plain (no syrup necessary). It was a great accompaniment to my morning coffee — and another reason to return to Sai Gon. rochestercitynewspaper.com

SUNDAY, MAY 18 BOP SHOP RECORDS, 1460 MONROE AVENUE 8 P.M. | $10 | 271-3354; BOPSHOP.COM; DANNYFOXMUSIC.COM [ JAZZ ] The more you listen to “Wide Eyed,” the new album by the Danny Fox Trio, the more you know this is not your average jazz trio. An excellent pianist, Fox is certainly capable of swinging, but he’s more interested in exploring the outer edges of the trio form. So a tune might grow from the rhythm of a pencil tapping on a desk or move from one time signature to another. Fox’s keyboard technique ranges from impressionistic to minimal. He is well supported in his exploits by Chris van Voorst van Beest on bass and Max Goldman on drums. — BY RON NETSKY
The Fevertones FRIDAY, MAY 16 THE CALIFORNIA BREW HAUS, 402 RIDGE ROAD WEST 8 P.M. | $10 [ BLUEGRASS ] Thankfully, The Fevertones’ insightful and decisive lyricism doesn’t leave the band’s enthusiastic jump and giddy-up from pulling any punches. The vocals turn hot on the band’s 2013 release “Barefoot and Still Breathing,” calling to mind a random Lomax recording circa another place and time. The band possesses too much energy, too much freshness to be deemed throwback, and too much moxy to be labeled folk, especially when the brass comes rolling in. Cult Classic will also perform. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Don Quixote is not only a great literary character, he's also done well as inspiration for music. On Sunday, First Muse Chamber Music explores three works inspired by Cervantes’ knight. Telemann’s “Don Quichotte” is a delightful Baroque confection drawing on scenes and characters from Cervantes, and Ravel’s “Don Quichotte à Dulcinée” is a dashing, touching song cycle inspired by the knight’s love for his “lady” Dulcinea. Then a truly quixotic undertaking: Richard Strauss’s tone poem “Don Quixote,” whose massive orchestration has been refined down to a chamber sextet featuring RPO players.

New City Slang FRIDAY, MAY 16 MONTY’S KROWN, 875 MONROE AVENUE 9 P.M. | NEWCITYSLANG.COM [ ROCK ] New City Slang is street poetry and jangly guitars through fuzzed out amps. The Rochester band is doing something different here, mixing feedback and aggression with folk ballads and lyrics that paint poignant images. The first time I saw the band perform I was reminded of when I discovered The Velvet Underground ever existed. Cavalcade and Inclusive Or will also play. — BY ERIC WITKOWSKI
Even if you haven’t heard of Mike Pope, you’ve probably heard him play. Over a three-decade career he’s been the bassist of choice for a variety of artists including Chick Corea, Al Di Meola, Chuck Loeb, David Sanborn and Eldar. So, it’s not surprising that his new album, “Cold Truth, Warm Heart,” features some of the finest artists in jazz today: Seamus Blake, tenor saxophone; Joe Locke, vibraphone; Geoffrey Keezer; keyboards; Mauricio Zottarelli, drums; Lydia Courtney, additional vibes; and Alan Blackman, piano. Pope is terrific on acoustic and electric bass, but the album really showcases his musical vision as a writer and arranger. He also produced, engineered, mixed and mastered the CD. His tunes can be straight-ahead (“Bare Minimum”), funky (“Shadow Of A Doubt”), beautiful (“What I Meant To Say”) or other-worldly (“Out Of The Ether”), but they are never predictable. Among the covers are Chopin’s “Prelude in E Minor” and Locke’s lovely “Dear Life.” And, of course, there are great solos throughout, especially from Locke, Keezer, and Blake. — BY RON NETSKY

Tiny Tots Concerts: Mr. Butterman’s Neighborhood.
Sonny Rollins is old school enough to know that jazz is best when it’s live. His latest release, “Road Shows Volume 3,” has the freshness of one of those great 1950’s club recordings. Rollins is the reigning monarch of the saxophone so these “clubs” were large concert halls in Japan, France, and St. Louis, but, somehow, the intimacy still comes through. Maybe it’s because Rollins has enlisted the same superb band mates for years: Clifton Anderson, trombone; Stephen Scott, piano; Bob Cranshaw, bass; Bobby Broom and Peter Bernstein, guitars; drummers Kobie Watkins, Perry Wilson, Steve Jordan and Victor Lewis; and percussionists Kimati Dinizulu and Sammy Figueroa. Rollins is known as one of the great soloists in the history of jazz and he doesn’t disappoint on several extended solos. But he’s generous enough to share the spotlight. Broom’s long solo on “Someday I’ll Find You” is one of the album’s best. As for the repertoire, this album avoids the overly familiar (“St. Thomas,” etc.), and instead features great originals like “Patanjali” and “Biji.” As for covers, Rollins stretches out on Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s beautiful “Why Was I Born.” These tunes were all recorded after Rollins’ 70th year but he sounds like an exuberant young player throughout. — BY RON NETSKY

Dog’s Life — (from left) Amy Brown, Dave Snyder, Dan Snyder (front), and Lee Chabowski — will reunite on stage after 20 years on Saturday, May 17, for a benefit show for Koo-Koo Boy. PHOTO PROVIDED

I live my life in between musical vignettes and the moments in between. There have been otherwise unassuming shows — or moments therein that have had a profound impact on me as a musician and as music fan. For example, there was the time James Brown nearly put a part in my scalp with his mic stand. Or when Iggy Pop invited all 17,000 fans at a show in New York to come up on stage, and I was in the front row. Or the time I took my little brother, Tom, to see the Ramones when he was 11 years old. There are countless shows at local dives, where the crowds were smaller but still bristled with frenzied anticipation and attention. And if you’re talking about the 12 CITY MAY 14-20, 2014
mid-1980’s, one of those frantic bands was Dog’s Life, a surf-stained, reggae-tinged quartet of pure pop joy. I first saw the band at Schatzee’s (now Richmond’s) — it was another one of those moments. The packed house was switched to full-on pogo mode. The guitar chopped and bounced super twangy. The singer was howling something about the Creature from the Black Lagoon as the rhythm section throttled, zipped, and boogied the beat beneath. It was magic. Dog’s Life came to life in the big 80’s. “My good friend Charles Blum and I started the band in the spring of 1986,” says guitarist Lee Chabowski. “We loved the same music and spent our time going to Scorgie’s, Schatzee’s, and Waldo’s in Geneseo. At the time, I was playing guitar and writing for The Resisters, but Charles and I were both a bit crazy for the reggae-tinged rock that was spattered here and there at the time. So I started writing some stuff in that vein, with a little surf thrown in. Charles and I started practicing and recruiting. We tried out a couple of people early in the summer, including a female vocalist, but nothing really gelled. This is when I wrote “Creature from the Black Lagoon” and “Aunt Lil” from the first album.”
Chabowski ran into singer Dave Snyder and the two clicked. “I started talking to this guy who said he’d seen me in The Resisters,” Chabowski says. “It was Dave. I told him that Charles and I were looking for band members, and he let us know he was a singer. He was interested in trying out. So we made a date to meet up in Dansville, because my parents had a garage we could make some noise in. So we dragged Dave down to this dusty, 400 degree oven of a garage, and played him what songs we had.” Snyder liked the less-than-serious nature of the lyrics and the melodic song structure, and Chabowski and Blum liked his voice. They also hit it off personally. With the addition of Eddie Everett on drums, voila: Dog’s Life. “Our first gig was at the first incarnation of Jazzberries on Monroe Avenue,” Chabowski says. “From there it’s a chronological blur for me.” Dog’s Life was together for eight years and played colleges and clubs all over New York, from the Continental in Buffalo to CBGBs in New York City, Chabowski says. “We played in Boston a couple of times. But our bread and butter gigs were definitely the second incarnation of Jazzberries, Scorgie’s, Richmond’s, the Horizontal Boogie
Bar (now Water Street Music Hall) and the small but mighty Friends and Players — we always made sure to fit Friends and Players in there every couple of months, because their manager, Caz, was the nicest guy in the world. I can’t forget Backstreets, Idols and Milestones either. We had the enviable position of having clubs compete for us on weekends. We also played live on WITR quite often. They were an invaluable support, as were WBER and WRUR.” Dog’s Life shared the bill with other great Rochester bands at the time like Koo-Koo Boy, La La Land, the Salamanders, Cat Fight, Miche and the Anglos. Blum and Everett left the band and were replaced by bassist Amy Brown and drummer Dan Snyder. The band’s sound continued to evolve — as did its loyal fan base — the more it played, immortalizing its tight pop on two albums, “Dog’s Life” and “Queenie Gots a Pinworm.” Chabowski isn’t entirely sure how it all ended, but that’s what happens; bands come, bands go. And between those two goalposts, some beautiful music comes out. Such is life … such was Dog’s Life. Now some 20-odd years later (175 in dog years) Dog’s Life is back to life to play a benefit for Koo-Koo Boy. “Dog’s Life and Koo-Koo Boy, specifically Koo-Koo himself, Scott Coblio, were inextricably intertwined,” Chabowski says. “We supported each other’s music, created together, lived together, and laughed our asses off together. Now, 20 years later, Scott is the sole caregiver for his best friend and roommate of the past 17 years who is suffering from late-stage neuroendocrine cancer. They’re savings have been devastated by medical bills, and the amount of care his friend requires leaves Scott with little time to work.” A mutual friend contacted band members recently and suggested a benefit concert. Chabowski and the rest of Dog’s Life were down. “There was no way I was going to say no to that,” he says. “It was time to step up to the plate.” The fundraiser benefit show for KooKoo Boy will be Saturday, May 17, at Skylark Lounge, 40 South Union Street, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dog’s Life will perform with 5Head, The Fox Sisters, The Gowns, and Modern Airline. There is a suggested $20 donation.

ROCK | DEL PAXTON
Buffalo-based band Del Paxton labels its music as being both “alternative” and “emo” — two titles that certainly fit the mood of the music the band creates. The band cites acts like American Football and Third Eye Blind as being major influences, thus resurrecting an emo, math-rock sound that has been mostly neglected by bands since the early 2000’s. However, while Del Paxton is clearly influenced by the aforementioned acts, its music is distinct and original, welcoming various other influences, most notably pop-punk. The band released its EP “Worst. Summer. Ever.” in August of 2013, and can often be seen playing shows in the Rochester area. Del Paxton performs with Signals Midwest, Reverse the Curse, and Sexy Teenagers on Sunday May 18, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $7-$9. Bugjar.com; Delpaxton.bandcamp.com. — BY LEAH CREARY

ROCK | PONY HAND
Pony Hand is a driving, dirty, psych-garage band. Its infectious riffs and vocals waft above the melody before sinking in and leading the music with an urgent charge. Karrah Teague’s voice is sexy and full of rage, while Brandon Henahan’s guitar burns like The Stooges’ 1973 album “Raw Power.” The drums are filled out by Giana Caliolo, who smashes with frenetic dynamics and a left foot always on the verge of pushing the hi-hat right off the stage. On songs “Horse Money” and “New Pony” the band summons hollow basements and warm beer of past, all while maintaining a unique place in classic punk. Its a sound that’s aggressive, but above all, fun. Pony Hand plays with Little Big League, Trophy Lungs, and The Branch Davidians on Wednesday, May 21, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$10.

EXPERIMENTAL | MARCO BENEVENTO
Marco Benevento’s Zach Galifianakis-like appearance and odd onstage behavior — like the giant tiger mask he wears and puts on his band mates — adds a sense of comedy to his shows. In the end though, you’ll remember the show more for the great tunes. The New York City based producer’s three-piece band features the piano, drums, bass, and good old fashioned jamming and grooving at its finest. Benevento likes to use guitar pedals and other sound-altering methods on his piano, resulting in some unique tonalities. If you’re one of those people who needs lyrics in their music, stay away, but if you’re a jazzhead or jam band fan, this one’s worth the price of admission. Marco Benevento and his band play with Occupanther on Thursday, May 15, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. 8 p.m. $10-$13 day of show.

THROUGH MAY 18 JCC CENTERSTAGE, 1200 EDGEWOOD AVENUE THURSDAY, MAY 15: 7 P.M.; SATURDAY, MAY 17: 8 P.M.; SUNDAY, MAY 18: 2 P.M. | $18-$26 | 461-2000, JCCROCHESTER.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
A few years back, JCC Centerstage presented “Mel Brooks’ The Producers.” The show packed the house and in some ways raised the bar for what audiences could expect from a splashy, modern musical put on by a community theater. The JCC is currently presenting Brooks’ follow-up show, a musical adaptation of the actor-writer-director’s 1974 comedy film “Young Frankenstein.” Although the source material isn’t as strong as “The Producers,” or as natural a fit for a musical, “Young Frankenstein” is still a ton of fun. The cast and crew involved in the JCC production throw themselves fully into the show and largely overcome its inherent weaknesses. The plot follows Brooks’ original film, just stuffed — and I really mean stuffed — with song-and-dance numbers. Dr. Frederick Frankenstein is a successful medical lecturer in New York City who cringes whenever anyone brings up his infamous family and its monstermaking background. As such, Frederick
is less than pleased to be summoned to Transylvania to handle the estate of his recently deceased grandfather. Once there, he is quickly conscripted into the family business by humpbacked henchman Igor, house- and secret-keeper Frau Blucher (*horse whinny*), and lusty yodeling lab assistant Inga. Straight-laced Frederick discovers that he has some facility at the whole mad-scientist trade, the Transylvania townspeople are Not Having It, and Frederick’s prissy New York fiancée makes a surprise trans-Atlantic trip. In between there is ample singing and multiple kicklines and jazz squares. “Young Frankenstein” is a heavier show than “The Producers,” and not because of its horror-tinged subject matter. It lacks a lightness in its storytelling, at times plodding much like the creature that shambles throughout its second act. That is not a fault of the JCC production — it was the same in the national tour of the show that came to the Auditorium Theatre a few years back. At times, especially in the first act, the show feels like a string of musical numbers that barely advance the plot. But those musical numbers are also where the show hits its highs. Danny Hoskins directs the JCC
production, and does an excellent job wrangling a large cast featuring more than two dozen performers. That’s also true for choreographer Meggins Kelley, vocal continues on page 24
ART | CHERYL HRUDKA ONE WOMAN SHOW
One of Artisan Direct’s newest gallery editions is an exhibit by Cheryl Hrudka, a healthcare worker before she pursued a love of abstract art and photography. While she takes traditional photographs, Hrudka attempts her own vision of the world through her work. She has also been quoted as saying she enjoys taking the road less traveled, and that’s what her art portrays. The Cheryl Hrudka gallery exhibit runs through Saturday, May 31, all days by appointment. Artisan Direct is located at 565 Blossom Road, adjacent to ARTISANworks, and is free to visit. For more information, visit Artisandirectrochester.net or call 586-3535. — BY TAYLOR WHITE

In the Rochester City Ballet’s studio on University Avenue, the company is rehearsing the ballroom scene from the classic story ballet “Cinderella” for this weekend’s performance at Nazareth Performing Arts Center. Cinderella and the Prince are practicing the pas de deux — or step for two — of their initial meeting. She is shy and tentative; he is already pursuing her with gentle insistence. “It’s like you have butterflies in your stomach because you’re meeting him for the first time,” artistic director Jamey Leverett calls out to Megan Kamler who is dancing the title role. “In a room full of people, you only see each other,” adds ballet master Fidel Orillo, who portrays one of the stepsisters in the play. The stepsisters are traditionally played by men in “Cinderella,” adding an element of hilarity to the romance. Longtime Rochester City Ballet dancer 18 CITY MAY 14-20, 2014
Adam Kittelberger plays the other selfish sister. Promotional pictures of them in costume with exaggerated expressions are probably proof enough that Orillo and Kittelberger will nail the ribald humor of these two oafish siblings, a feat that requires considerable talent in physical comedy. The Evil Stepmother will be played by guest artist Brian Norris, a career comedic dancer who performed with the famous Ballet Trockadero. As the RCB continues to rehearse, the Prince, danced by newcomer Jesse Campbell, draws Cinderella closer to him, his hands on her hips, supporting her as she dips down into arabesque penche, her leg lifted behind her. Kamler is a talented classical dancer. The line from her reaching fingertips down and out through her extended foot fairly vibrates with energy. Her practice tutu — white skirt and pale blue bodice — is quintessential Cinderella, innocent yet disarming. In fact, so is Kamler herself. Even her blonde hair, radiant smile and leggy look lend her a sort of Disney princess appeal that little girls will eat up. Kamler is wearing her practice tutu this afternoon so that, as Orillo explains, Campbell can better practice his hand placement for lifts and turns. A tutu obscures the view of the continues on page 24

TO 10 P.M.; TUESDAY: 5 P.M. TO 8 P.M.; FRIDAY: 5 P.M. TO 11 P.M.; SATURDAY: 12 P.M. TO 11 P.M.; SUNDAY: 12 P.M. TO 8 P.M. | 258-0400; THELITTLE.ORG. [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
It’s not easy to combine two distinct styles and aesthetics to create cohesive pieces of artwork. Besides the normal concerns of technical and symbolic prowess, collaboration demands practice in not getting too attached to your own ideas and solutions. In preparation for their current show, “Core Collapse,” painter St. Monci and illustrator Justyn Iannucci passed works-in-progress back and forth between two rooms in Monci’s house. Working separately, they completed the pieces over time, tweaking them into beautifully balanced compositions that the artists say are meant to explore the unknown in the collaborative process itself, and to parallel ideas of disruption and assemblage within the universe. “This show is almost eating itself,” Iannucci says of the symbols and motifs they cannibalized from their portfolios for this body of work. For these pieces, Iannucci drew from drawings and designs he’d created for different projects, but also featured little gems he’d been saving in his sketchbook. The hue-saturated, shooting shapes and shards represent Monci’s crispy, dimension-busting style. In each work of this show, the marks of the two artists are locked in a kinetic dance, orbiting one another as they jet through space. Monci’s planes of color are stationary foils for the illustrations, or shooting beams of energy that bisect and pierce Iannucci’s familiar, earthly objects. The colorful and graphic works were created using ink, paint, marker, and grainy-textured Xerox transfers of Iannucci’s illustrations. Traces of penciled lines are visible, adding an extra delicate dimension to the bold imagery. The joint process of two makers is alluded to in “Transmission Freq. IX,” in which two prone and expressive hands seem to 20 CITY MAY 14-20, 2014
move shapes around without effort, and a screw — a ubiquitous image in the show — moves out from behind a thin rectangle. Many of the works form masses of objects-in-space held together loosely by their own gravity, as likely to become a bigger heap as they are to disperse if disturbed. The seeming weightlessness of the hands is echoed in “Ping: Zero G,” in which a black-clad girl gently falls backward through shafts of purple and blue light, accompanied by a joined bolt and nut.

Turturro’s Woody Allen movie “Fading Gigolo”
ring some reminiscent bells. Allen plays Murray, a failed bookseller closing up his business with (R), WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY the help of his part-time employee, Fioravante JOHN TURTURRO (Turturro). He tells Fioravante that his married NOW PLAYING dermatologist, Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone), wants to experience a threesome with her girlfriend, for which she will pay a thousand dollars; [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA serving as his “manager,” he will naturally take a cut of the gigolo’s fee. Woody Allen’s presence in John Turturro’s After a good deal of persuasion, he convinces new movie may represent something like an his friend to take the job, which initially entails imprimatur, suggesting that his influence a one-on-one tryout with the doctor. Fioravante extends beyond the pictures he himself performs so well that he soon collects a batch of directs. Presumably filtered through Turturro’s imagination, “Fading Gigolo,” like it or not, seems clients, apparently through word of mouth, and satisfies them all according to their wishes and very like one or another Woody Allen movie. desires. Parker’s girlfriend Selima (Sofia Vergara), The setting, the simple plot and situation, for example, likes her sex rough and decidedly along with an essential implausibility, should kinky, and the flexible gigolo kindly cooperates. The inevitable (and utterly artificial) complications arise when Fioravante falls in love with Avigal (Vanessa Paradis), the lovely young widow of a rabbi, which arouses the jealousy of Dovi (Liev John Turturro wrote, directed, and stars in “Fading Gigolo.” PHOTO COURTESY Schreiber) the MILLENNIUM ENTERTAINMENT
chief of the Hasidic neighborhood watch. That involvement, innocent and romantic, leads to a silly comic sequence in which the Hasidim kidnap Murray and try him in a rabbinical court. Turturro clutters up the thin plot with a good deal of extraneous material, including Murray’s unusual domestic situation, his attempts to teach Avigal’s studious sons to play baseball, and some glimpses of Hasidic attire and customs, like Avigal’s refusal to shake hands with a strange man or the rules that require her to wear a wig. Although Turturro plays the title role, Woody Allen occupies far too much of the picture, even to the point of weakening whatever emotional potential exists in the character and his sexual adventures. Unable to develop the script much beyond its initial premise, Turturro apparently ran out of ideas and, in the Woody Allen tradition, threw in gags. Perhaps the greatest problem with the movie
derives from its consistent implausibility. Though rooted in a relatively authentic representation of ordinary daily life in Brooklyn and Manhattan, it constructs its action on some preposterous assumptions, the chief of them the notion that wealthy, beautiful, terrifically desirable women would need to pay thousands of dollars for sex with a gigolo. It asks the audience to believe that a young widow perhaps in her 30’s would have six children, some of them teenagers — and she started late, she tells Fioravante.
Arrested development “Neighbors” (R), DIRECTED BY NICHOLAS STOLLER NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
Aside from its bevy of lovely women — no longer young, Sharon Stone still looks sensationally sexy — “Fading Gigolo” of course depends upon the performances of the two male stars. With slight variations, Woody Allen generally repeats the roles he’s played in dozens of movies, most of them his own work. Jumpy, neurotic, garrulous, he plays the feckless Murray pretty much as if he were playing himself all over again, even using some of his characteristic catch phrases and reaction shots. John Turturro, on the other hand, creates a nice contrast to Allen’s character, playing a softspoken, essentially gentle man who ultimately eases gracefully into his new job, dancing an acceptable tango with one woman, agreeing to some extreme activity with another, treating Avigal with a touching tenderness. In “Fading Gigolo” he demonstrates a passive acting style, a restraint that suits the movie’s frequent pauses and silences. The film suggests further instances of the Woody Allen touch, particularly in its camera work, capturing the look and, more important, the feel of a couple of neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The soft, not-quite-sepia hues of many of its establishing shots replicate some of the Allen style in some of his best pictures, a sort of nostalgia for the present, and a vision that may not actually exist but remains a distinguishing element in his work. John Turturro may eventually direct something less derivative and more substantial than “Fading Gigolo,” but for now, it’s his own version of Woody Allen.
The best comedies — even the most ridiculous, raunchy, and foul-mouthed among them — are successful because they contain at least the tiniest grain of human truth, a recognizable bit of emotion that its audience can connect with on some level. In the case of “Neighbors,” the new comedy from Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), the truth is that growing older scares the shit out of us, and that fear results in most of us needing to be dragged into maturity kicking and screaming all the way. Maybe that’s a ludicrously highminded way to begin talking about a movie that has stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron engaging in a rubber dildo slap fight, but it’s also the reason that scene ends up being as funny as it is. Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne, “Bridesmaids”) are new parents to an adorable six-month-old baby girl (I’d be inclined to say that using an infant to earn laughs so frequently is just Stoller pandering to his audience, but man
is that kid cute). As the film begins, they’ve just moved into a new home in a nice, quiet suburban neighborhood. Though they both have anxieties about entering this new age of adulthood and domesticity, they both claim to be ok with letting go of the carefree days of their youth and accepting that their lives now revolve around the responsibility of being a parent But when a fraternity also moves into the neighborhood, they’re worried that the inevitable barrage of non-stop partying will mean sleepless nights for them as well as their baby. At first, the couple is concerned with appearing “cool” as they approach the frat’s leaders, Teddy (Efron) and Pete (Dave Franco), with their concerns, bringing a joint with them as peace-offering and hoping to avoid being perceived as the boring old people across the street. It turns out their plan goes a little too well, and they end up being sucked into a drugfueled night of partying with their new neighbors. Mac finds himself bonding with Teddy, and cements their newfound friendship with a promise to call Teddy directly before involving the police if there’s ever a problem in the future. Of course, that promise is broken the very next night when Kelly and Mac call the cops after being kept awake by the rager outside, and Teddy and Pete decide to get even, setting the stage for all-out generational warfare. The film’s writers, Andrew J. Cohen and
Rose Byrne and Seth Rogen in “Neighbors.” PHOTO COURTESY UNIVERSAL PICTURES
Brendan O’Brien, show an appealing willingness to place blame at the feet of their protagonists. After all, if Mac and Kelly didn’t break their word, they might have found a way to coexist in peace with their collegiate neighbors. This, in addition to adding some nuance to the frat characters — it’s clear that at their hearts, Teddy and Pete are both good guys — goes a long
way in keeping the character’s increasingly outlandish behavior at least vaguely understandable. The film’s ability to ground all the wackiness and endless dick jokes in a basic truthfulness is its greatest asset. Byrne proves to be the film’s MVP, showing she’s every bit as capable of getting down and dirty as her male costars. It’s nice to see her character treated as an equal partner in the hijinks instead of relegated to the role of nagging wife. In fact, the one major argument between Kelly and Mac is a result of her feeling like he’s treating her as such. Kelly admits that during her days spent alone with only the baby for company, she’s bored. As a result, she throws herself into the ensuing battle with even more fervor than her husband. It’s an intriguing bit of shading to her character, and one that I wish had been explored even more. Rogen is also good, playing a variation of the traditional Seth Rogen role. He and Byrne play off one another well, and they make for remarkably believable couple. Efron is a surprise, stretching his admittedly limited skills to prove an appealing comedic presence while capably portraying Teddy’s layers of doubt and wounded pride. Stoller can allow his actors to engage too often in the improv-heavy Apatow brand of comedy, and these extended moments can grind the movie to a halt as the actors riff off one another with mixed results. But for the most part he keeps things moving, deserving praise for keeping his film to a trim 96 minutes, as well as injecting some welcome style through the many elaborate party sequences — both traits that happily set his film apart from the static aesthetic and unwieldy runtimes that characterize too many modern comedies. While it doesn’t reach the level of instant classic, his “Neighbors” sets an appreciably high bar for the rest of this summer’s comedies to clear.

director Sarah Staebell, and orchestra director Aaron Staebell. There are multiple full-ensemble numbers in this show, and by and large the chorus sounds fantastic and takes on a wide array of dance steps, including some jumps and flips. It is an ambitious undertaking that speaks highly of the directors and the performers. Even if the big group numbers don’t always go off without a hitch (for example, the tap sequence during “Puttin’ on the Ritz” lacked the crispness that practically defines the artform), you have to respect the talent and rehearsal that obviously went into the process. The lead actors all turn in truly impressive work. John Winter plays the main role of Frederick Frankenstein. While he does not have the strongest singing voice, he is still solid in his musical numbers — and very good in the tricky syncopated passages in early songs like “The Brain.” He excels at the straight-man role, and keeps the show centered while the zany second bananas peel all around him. Chief among them is Jeffrey Andrews, who puts the Prancersice lady to shame as the light-footed Igor. Andrews is a supremely gifted comedian, and this show utilizes all of his strengths. He shows off his improv chops, his comic timing, his inventive physical delivery. Andrews doesn’t need to say anything; he steals scenes based solely on his reactions. He’s also a very strong singer. Kerry Young mines Frau Blucher (*horse whinny*) for maximum laughs. Young also has a strong improv background, and it shows. As a singer, she completely owns her big crowd-pleasing number, “He Vas My Boyfriend.” Lani Toyama is a delight as Inga. She delivers a stunning yodel solo (yes, really) in “Roll in the Hay” and generally sings and dances like a dream. Frederick’s fiancée Elizabeth Bennett is absent for the majority of the show, which is a shame because Mary Tiballi Hoffman is a hoot whenever she’s on stage. She kills it in the international cocktease anthem, “Please Don’t Touch Me,” and is simultaneously both bubbly and pouty in the second act. Rusty Allen makes the most of his big “Mr. Cellophane” moment as the Hermit (“Please Send Me Someone”) but underplays village idiot Ziggy to the point that most of his punchlines simply don’t land. On the whole, “Young Frankenstein” is terrific showcase of local talent. But note that there are only a few performances left, and according to the JCC tickets are largely sold out for the remainder of the run.

ballerina’s spine so the danseur can’t readily see where to grasp her, instead he needs to rely on touch to gage where to place his hands. “Those turns are like butter now,” Orillo murmurs to Leverett seated beside him. Kamler trained at Draper Center, the official training school of the RCB, left to major in dance at Arizona University, and returned to RCB three seasons ago. Her roles include the fiancée in Leverett’s “The Blood Countess” and the Dewdrop Fairy in “The Nutcracker.” This is Campbell’s second season with RCB. He was last seen as the Arabian Dancer in “The Nutcracker” and as a soloist in Leverett’s “Serenade.” As the duet’s rehearsal draws to a close, Campbell’s growing exuberance becomes almost tangible, glowing. Kamler responds to his every movement and gesture. And he becomes more assertive; at one point, taking her chin in his hand and turning it back towards him when she bashfully breaks gaze. Also rehearsing are the Season Fairies, whimsical creatures who bourree in a tight circle on pointe, their toes rapidly pitterpattering below erect legs and torso, while the Fairy Godmother, played by the gifted Jessica Tretter, weaves amongst them with her silver wand. The fairies wear leotards and tights this afternoon, but hanging in the costume room are their tutus, wondrous eye candy full of flower, leaf, and sparkle, in a pastel of hues. Original costume design is by Jackie Olstrum. The fairies are: Lauren Tenney as Autumn Fairy; Lisa Ushino as Spring Fairy; Beth Rodbell as Winter Fairy; and Rhea Keller as Summer Fairy. Ben Rabe returns as a guest artist to play the Jester. Sergei Prokofiev’s score for this ballet is gorgeous, lush and sensual, building to a compelling vibrancy. It is among his most recognizable music. Many different choreographic versions of “Cinderella” exist; RCB is using a variation created by founder Timothy M. Draper with contributions from Leverett. “Cinderella” is Saturday, May 17, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 18, at 2 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 3892170 or online at Artscenter.naz.edu.

K-D Moving & Storage Inc.
315 Culver Road In 1901, Alice R. May graduated from Cornell’s College of Architecture. As one of Rochester’s first female architects, she designed buildings throughout the city, including the Arlington Building for the Rochester Business Institute and a stunning Arts and Crafts bungalow at 315 Culver Road.
42 years of experience in office & household moving and deliveries
Big or small, we do them all
Originally built in 1913 for Dr. Oscar Pardo and his wife Alice M. Cogswell, the daughter of a prominent Rochester family, the 2,236 square foot bungalow near the corner of East Avenue is an impressive home with grand stone porches that distinguish it from other properties in the area. By 1946, 315 Culver was owned by Mr. and Mrs. George Hollister Spencer of Hollister Lumber – a company, which perhaps not coincidentally, employed architect Alice R. May.

In addition to its rich provenance, 315 Culver is host to architectural details and quality craftsmanship that say much about Alice May’s talent – and the fine taste of the families who lived there.

The first floor living and dining rooms are striking for the sheer quantity of mahogany that lines the walls. The fireplace mantle, built-ins, and architectural panels gleam as sunlight streams through the leaded-glass bay window. Other decorative flourishes such as stained glass, pocket doors, and unique Corinthian columns accentuate the beauty of the wellpreserved wood. Conveniently located off the dining room, the kitchen is a veritable time capsule, complete with top-of- the-line Geneva Modern Kitchen
steel cabinets and a beautifully maintained 1950s General Electric range. The eat-in breakfast nook, all the rage leading into the 1920s, features a tin ceiling, more cabinet space, and tile floors. An arched doorway, adorned with copper hardware, invites visitors to the second floor’s three spacious bedrooms and full bath. The master bedroom boasts two closets — and the back bedroom opens up to a small balcony. The third floor offers built-in storage, a full bath charmingly dominated by the original clawfoot tub, and a well-insulated home office with pitched ceilings, a beautiful hinged window, and an incredible view of the front garden. George Hollister’s mother, Harriet Hollister Spencer, was an authority on gardens and historic roses. Seemingly, her love of all things horticultural was passed down to her son, as he commissioned the renowned landscape architect Fletcher Steele to design a garden at 315 Culver. Today, the house’s old-growth conifers, prize rose bush, sprawling magnolia tree, magnificent stone archway, and numbered cast iron fence harken back to Steele’s design. Updated and ready for occupancy, the roof and hot water heater at 315 Culver were replaced in 2010. The home is listed at $219,000. Contact Dee Balistiere at (585) 261-2456 for more information. by Lisa M. Feinstein Lisa is Vice President for Institutional Advancement at The Strong and an avid fan of historic architecture and neighborhoods.

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.

Price of Friendship
“Whoever said, ‘Money can’t buy you friends’ clearly hasn’t been on the Internet recently,” wrote The New York Times in April, pointing to various social media support services that create online superstars by augmenting one’s Facebook “friends,” Twitter “followers,” and Instagram “likes.” The reporter described how, by paying a company $5, for example, he immediately acquired 4,000 “friends,” and had he splurged for $3,700, could have had a million on his Instagram photo account. Such services have been around for two years, but earlier, cruder versions (sometimes, just unmonitored email addresses) are now sophisticated “bots” — groups of computer code created on algorithm farms in India and elsewhere — that “behave” on social media with original messaging (often “drivel,” wrote the Times) as if they were real people.
The Entrepreneurial Spirit — We All Scream: (1) In April, Haa-
gen-Dazs announced it will introduce two new ice creams (thankfully, only in Japan): carrot orange (with bits of pulp and peel) and tomato cherry (made from tomato paste). (2) A South Wales ice cream maker (“Lick Me I’m Delicious”) announced in April that it has perfected an ice cream containing about 25mg of Viagra per scoop (though it is not yet generally available). — Marketing Challenges: (1) In January, London’s Daily Telegraph found three British companies in competition to sell deodorant supposedly made especially for women’s breasts. According to one, Fresh Body, “We’re replacing ‘swoobs’ — dreaded boob sweat — with smiles.” (2) Owner Christian Ingber recently opened a sandwich shop in Gothenburg, Sweden, named “A F***ing Awesome Sandwich.” An American expatriate told Stockholm’s The Local
news service that Swedes think English “curse words” are “cute and charming.”
— Medical Marvels: (1) China’s Chengdu Commercial Daily reported in March that Liu Yougang, 23, finally had surgery to remove that whistle he had swallowed when he was 9. He had been experiencing worsened breathing — and had been making “shrill whistle sounds” nightly after falling asleep. (2) London’s Daily Star featured Sarah Beal, 43, of Arley, Warwickshire, England, in a March story demonstrating her skin condition in which writing words on her skin makes it puff up for about an hour before it recedes. It is referred to by doctors as the “Etch A Sketch condition” (formally, dermatographia), and despite occasional pain, she described it as “cool” and a “party trick.” — The Job of the Researcher: Cornell University graduate student Michael Smith, disappointed at the paucity of research on the pain of honeybee stings, decided to evaluate the stings himself (but in line with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975 on safe self-experimentation). Smith’s protocols required five stings a day on various body locations for 38 days — at least three on each of 25 body areas. The worst, according to his pain index, were the nostril (9.0) and the upper lip (8.7). — North Carolina’s Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine is already well known to News of the Weird readers for creating functional organs in the lab (most notably, perhaps, growing a human bladder and a rabbit’s penis). In an April article in the Lancet, the program announced that it had implanted artificial vaginas in four women in the U.S. A functioning vagina, the director told BBC News, “is a very important thing.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Passion is a wonderful thing, and putting your energy into a relationship that offers you equality, companionship and happiness should be your intent. Don’t worry what others think, do or say. Follow your heart and refuse to become jealous or possessive, or you may ruin a good thing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract more than one partner. Proceed with caution; if you aren’t careful, you will end up in a situation that requires you to keep secrets that could incriminate you down the road. Honesty regarding your intentions will be required to avoid an emotional mishap.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Use your charm and step into the spotlight. You’ll attract love, romance, adventure and excitement. Your body language coupled with your intellectual banter will be too hard to resist. Pick and choose wisely, and it will lead to a long-term relationship. The ball is in your court. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t live in the past or waste your time trying to reunite with someone. Look forward, and proceed with caution. Your sensitive nature will attract a player if you aren’t careful. Make any suitor work hard to gain your trust, admiration and love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your ardent personality will attract a lot of attention. Play hard and play to win -- no matter the game. Take action, pour a little excitement into the mix and mesmerize the person you desire. Your motto when it comes to love should be “signed, sealed, delivered -- I’m yours.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When it comes to love, your heart tells you it’s for keeps. Offering dedication, loyalty and commitment will attract partners that find you refreshing and who want the same kind of stability -- emotionally and financially -- as you. Put your best foot forward and tell it like it is.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be having too much fun to settle for anything less than what you want when it comes to love, marriage and a future with someone. Strut your stuff, and you’ll find out quickly who can keep up to you mentally, physically and financially. Equality will win. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your uniqueness will bring you good fortune when it comes to relationships. You’ll attract someone who has plenty to offer and who inspires and motivates you to be and do your best. The person who creates with you will be the one who holds your hand during hardship.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ve got everyone watching to see what you’ll do next. Surprise and adventure attract onlookers and participants. Pick and choose your partner based on what’s being offered in return. The perfect match will be just as unpredictable, fun-loving and free-spirited as you. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan. 19): Too much choice can lead to mistakes. When it comes to love, you must opt for the one who offers the greatest loyalty and who shares your monetary views. Chasing after someone who offers intrigue and a fast-paced life will also lead to disappointment and regret.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your perfect partner is someone as experimental and curious as you. Love is in the stars and heading in your direction, and when it finds you, hold on tight and ride the rollercoaster with a smile on your face and the endurance to see matters through to the end. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t fool yourself into thinking love at first sight has come your way. You are likely to attract someone who does everything you want initially to win your heart, but in time will disappoint you. Don’t fall for compliments and charm when what you really need is someone honest and faithful.
