Reforms aren’t ‘rich addition’ to education
On March 3, 2013, I began a petition through SignOn.org calling for our state legislators and Governor Cuomo to separate our Empire State from the federal disaster that is Race to the Top and Common Core Standards. On April 25, I and a small group of supporters – both active and retired educators – delivered the petition with 1,083 signatures from residents around the state. Our state education standards, the professionalism of our teachers, and the creativity of our students stand proudly and successfully on our own merits. We do not need a Race to the Top education in New York State. We know and live the truth in our classrooms, daily. NYSUT President Richard Iannuzzi has made the following statement: “NYSUT has continually stressed the potential for Common Core standards to be a rich addition to classrooms across the country. Polls of members in NY and nationally agree.” I have not met a New York State teacher yet who would agree. In fact, I am confident many in the trenches are adamant about the devastation caused by these standards. Race to the Top and Common Core standards are nothing but corporate-driven strategies for the privatization of public education. They are tools to continue the economic segregation of our students, now with the use of data warehouses. New York State United Teachers and the American Federation of Teachers are not doing enough to resist these moves. Calling for a moratorium and a public rally and writing legislation are appreciated. However, these are a response to poor decisions, and they are failed attempts to stave off the
corporate profiteers invited by NYSUT and AFT’s partnership with corporate-driven politicians and foundations. The Common Core standardized guidelines run counter to brainresearch findings. For our youngest students, love of learning and hands-on discovery are being lost to developmentally inappropriate expectations for all, destroying the spirits of our future innovators. For our older students, unique talents and gifts are being sacrificed for “a one size fits all” approach. We cannot then expect problem-solvers or critical thinkers for the future. Teachers need union leadership that is willing not only to listen but also to ask the tough questions of policymakers and union members; to seek input to redefine or clarify our mission; and, most important, to lead us away from corporate profiteers and back to researchbased policy that celebrates and promotes all learners. Will NYSUT, AFT, and the NEA listen to their membership? JULIE MITCHELL, WEBSTER

Funding the schools
On our story about Rochester school budget cuts affecting the Student and Family Support Centers: This is a sad, sad state of
affairs. If the center’s counselors and social workers saw more than 5,000 students in the 2011- 2012 school year, that’s a lot of kids who received support. And now 10 positions have been cut, so other social workers with be over-burdened in an attempt to deliver the same kind of quality care to the same numbers of students in a school district that is currently ranked one of the WORST in our state? Seems like you should be hiring social workers, not firing them. I understand that counseling programs are expensive, but jail is even more expensive. Is there REALLY nowhere else fat could have been cut? RASJ
Funding the cities
On Urban Journal’s “Our ToneDeaf Governor: Cuomo and the Cities”: Keep in mind that
Cuomo is responsible to the statewide electorate, not just the few Upstate cities.
City living is a luxury and should mainly be funded by those who choose it. People who live outside of the city manage to get along without multiple hundreds of professional police, rec centers, music festivals, etc., and increasingly do not come to a city even for work. As those people manage to mainly self-fund their local governments through their own property taxes, they have a reasonable expectation that cities should do so to the same extent. LINCOLN DECOURSEY
On Urban Journal’s “War, Policy, and Obama”: I find the selection of
the subject of Obama’s speech on the US and terrorism an amazing attempt to look at the previous week through rose-colored glasses. To ignore three separate scandals for a speech that was clearly an attempt to deflect attention from the scandals is just amazing, even for a liberal leaning paper. But let’s take the speech: “The destruction of Muslim extremist terrorism” is anything but close to an end. Right now, the US is working on a method to cover its gun running to Syria via Benghazi and Turkey by getting multiple countries to remove the international restriction on aiding any single side to overthrow a government. The US government violated international law by these actions. Gun running is exactly why the ambassador was in Benghazi in the first place. Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, and Syria are all being controlled or disrupted by the Muslim Brotherhood and its associates. The Coptic Christians are fleeing Egypt by the tens of thousands due to the attacks by members of the Muslim Brotherhood there. But Mary Anna Towler chooses to do a critique of the president’s speech and describes it as an “eloquent, principled, and rational one.” She references the need for an “informed public.” I suggest that what we need is “a more informed media” at all levels. Then maybe we would get those who have access to this administration to start the inquiries to expose the tyrannical actions of big government, and specifically this administration. BILL BROWN

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Big Brother at work Maybe President Obama is able to reconcile his words and his actions, but my head is spinning. This was Barack Obama on May 23, speaking at the National Defense University: “For over two centuries, the United States has been bound together by founding documents that defined who we are as Americans, and served as our compass through every type of change.… battlefields have changed and technology has evolved. But our commitment to constitutional principles has weathered every war….” After 9/11, “we strengthened our defenses – hardening targets, tightening transportation security, giving law enforcement new tools to prevent terror…. Some caused inconvenience. But some, like expanded surveillance, raised questions about the balance that we strike between our interests in security and our values of privacy.” “… the same human progress that gives us the technology to strike half a world away also demands the discipline to constrain that power – or risk abusing it.” “… the choices we make about war can impact – in sometimes unintended ways – the openness and freedom on which our way of life depends.” And now we learn that the federal government has been scooping up the records of every phone call Americans make. Government agencies know what phone numbers we’ve called, what calls we’ve received, how long we’ve talked. And if we’ve been e-mailing or using social media to correspond with foreigners, it’s entirely possible that the government, through a separate program called Prism, has access to what we’ve said. National-security officials assure us that Prism targets only foreigners, but that’s small comfort. The Washington Post reports that operators “key in ‘selectors,’ or search terms, that are designed to produce at least 51 percent confidence in a target’s ‘foreignness.’” That’s not, as the Post says, “a very stringent test.” And besides: as Scott Lemieux put it in The American Prospect last week, “the American government collaborating with corporations to invade the privacy of nonAmericans who in many cases seem to be targeted without individualized suspicion is worthy of condemnation itself.” These are not programs that get information only about people nationalsecurity officials suspect are terrorists. These programs can provide information about all of us; government agents search that information looking for hints that somebody might be a terrorist.
These are not programs that get information only about suspected terrorists. These programs can provide information about all of us.” Just picture this in the hands of Richard Nixon or J. Edgar Hoover. President Obama seems to have convinced himself that he has struck the “balance” he referred to in his National Defense University speech. And that he is “constraining” his presidential power, not abusing it. But two of the few Senators who knew about this – intelligence committee members Ron Wyden and Mark Udall – disagree, and they tried to warn the public last year. Late last week, Wyden and Udall said that based on what they know, they believe the government could have gotten the information it needed “through other collection methods that do not violate the privacy of law-abiding Americans.” Glenn Greenwald, who broke the phone-records story in The Guardian, wrapped up his article with a quote from the late Idaho Senator Frank Church, who chaired a Congressional committee in the 1970’s that investigated government surveillance and covert operations: “The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter.” In his speech at the National Defense University, President Obama emphasized that we face more than one kind of terrorism, not all of it from foreigners. The Boston and Oklahoma City terrorists were Americans. At what point will the government start scrutinizing Americans’ e-mails and Facebook postings looking for signs of domestic terrorism? Are the lives of victims of domestic terrorism less valuable than those of foreign terrorists’ victims? At this point, given the president’s commitment to these programs, we’ll have to depend on Congress to try to reverse course. But with this Congress, that will take enormous public pressure. The time to start exerting that pressure is now.

Teachers fight new testing
Thousands of teachers and their supporters, many from the Rochester region, rallied in Albany against some education reform measures. Most of the protesters were critical of standardized testing and the new Common Core curriculum.
Race disparities in pot arrests
The New York Civil Liberties Union released an analysis showing that blacks in Monroe County are 6.5 times more likely than whites to be arrested for possessing marijuana. The organization looked at marijuana arrests in New York counties from 2001 to 2010. It found that statewide, blacks are 4.5 times as likely as whites to be arrested for pot possession. Government surveys show that whites use pot at higher rates than blacks, the NYCLU said.
State says MCH is OK
The state Department of Health told the county that Monroe Community Hospital is now in compliance with state and federal standards. The department visited the hospital earlier this month to follow up on a
previous visit and survey. In April, the department issued a report outlining several problems at the hospital, including the former director allegedly mistreating a patient.
Costello talks CityGate

Running out of time Significant cuts to All City High’s teaching and non-teaching staff have set off alarms about that school’s survival, but there’s much more to it. The cuts have also ignited a much larger concern about the future of the Rochester school district and the role that charter schools will play in that future.
Red-light camera suit
The City of Rochester is being sued over its red light camera program. The lawsuit claims that the program is unconstitutional because it violates the Fifth Amendment right to due process. The cameras video record a vehicle as it runs the red light and the ticket is issued to the car’s owner, not the driver. This prohibits due process, according to the suit.
RTA President Adam Urbanski: the loss of students to charters is a disaster-in-the-making for students and parents in city schools. FILE PHOTO
All City High’s primary purpose is to support students in schools being phased out and closed — a process started under former Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard. Many of the students were at risk of dropping out, and All City offered them a more flexible schedule with an infusion of extra academic and emotional support. The school’s instructional staff will be reduced from about 120 to 64 this fall, says Rochester Teachers Association President Adam Urbanski. Guidance counselors and non-teaching staff will also be cut, he says. “All City High needs a smaller staff because of declining enrollment — from more than 1,300 students at the beginning of the school year to 870 today to a projected 500 students next year,” said district spokesperson Chip Partner in a written statement. But Urbanski calls that explanation baffling. The district stopped accepting
enrollment at All City midway through the year, he says, and no reason was given. Some school board members say they’re getting calls and emails about the All City reductions from teachers, students, and parents. And they say the decision, made by Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, caught them by surprise. “Something is very inconsistent about all of this,” says board member Van White. “All along we’ve been asking for data on All City High, and just two weeks ago we were told everything is fine there.” But Vargas says that All City High was always intended as an immediate option for students floundering or at risk of dropping out of the five schools that are being closed. And the school has fulfilled that mission, he says. Though Vargas says there are no immediate plans to close All City High, continues on page 6

Fringe reveals 2013 headliners On Monday the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival unveiled the headlining acts for the second year of the event, which will run September 19 to 28 in multiple venues in Downtown Rochester. Aerial dance troupe Bandaloop will return after its crowd-pleasing kickoff performances at the first Rochester Fringe, which reportedly drew more than 10,000 spectators. Bandaloop will again perform on the side of One HSBC Plaza for two free shows, September 20 and 21. The other two headlining acts for this year are Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist and newspaper columnist Dave Barry and comedian Marc Maron, who produces the popular podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” Barry will perform Friday, September 27 ($20-$65), Maron Saturday, September 21 ($20-$55), with both shows taking place at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre. Fringe organizers also announced the addition of a Spiegeltent as a venue for this year’s festival. Dutch for “mirror tent,” Spiegeltents are Belgian in origin, made of wood, fabric, and stained glass, and act as highly stylized travelling entertainment venues, dating back to the late 19th century.

Plans to move the Monroe County fair to 25 acres in Ogden’s Northampton Park are being met with fury, frustration, and possible litigation. The Monroe County Legislature was expected to vote on the proposal Tuesday night. It is possible, though unlikely, the proposal could be tabled. | The sale of the Dome Arena, the fair’s longtime Henrietta home, necessitates finding a new site. And officials say they see the move as an opportunity to restore the fair to its agricultural roots — meaning no more midway, demolition derby, or general carnival atmosphere. What they want, they say, is a place for local youth to show their animals and to educate their peers about agriculture. | But many park neighbors aren’t buying it. They packed the park’s ski lodge last week for a meeting held by Legislature Dems to take comments on the relocation plan. Speakers tore into the process, calling it a backroom deal. They said they’re angry that they’ve just learned about the proposal and said that it already appears to be a done deal. And they said that while this year’s plans may be for a small agricultural festival, they fear that in future years it’ll grow to resemble the fairs at the Dome Arena.

Medley Centre’s long odds The biggest and possibly only physical change happening at Irondequoit’s beleaguered Medley Centre mall seems to be the grass growing through the cracks in the parking lot. That shouldn’t be the case. By now, Medley developer Scott Congel is supposed to have invested $165 million toward his vision of turning the dead mall into a thriving mix of commercial, hotel, entertainment, and residential components.

The milestone was written into a taxincentive agreement between Congel, the Town of Irondequoit, the East Irondequoit school district, and the Monroe County Industrial Development Agency. The developer was supposed to submit proof of that investment by the end of April, but he failed to comply. Officials from each entity have written Congel asking for the information, but “we’ve had no communication at all,” says John Abbott, deputy superintendent of the East Irondequoit school district. (Congel did not immediately return a call seeking comment.) If Congel doesn’t submit the paperwork, or if the paperwork shows he’s invested less than $165 million, he’ll face a penalty payment. The East Irondequoit school board slapped Congel with a $550,000 penalty last year after district officials determined he fell short of the $90 million milestone spelled out in a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement. Congel hasn’t paid and disagrees that he owes the money, Abbott says. COMIDA officials didn’t pursue any penalty payment last year. They agreed with Congel’s assertion that he’d invested $93 million in the Medley Centre project. COMIDA officials didn’t answer a question about whether or not they believe Congel is making progress on Medley Centre. A county spokesperson said COMIDA
Out of time
officials are waiting for a response to their letter. The COMIDA letter also tells Congel that he owes the county agency more than $2 million in fees related to the PILOT agreement — a separate commitment from the investment milestones. To be clear, Congel has consistently made required annual payments to the town, school district, and COMIDA — so he’s been following through on one major part of the agreement. “Even though it looks like we’re in a holding pattern, it’s better than nothing right now,” says Irondequoit Supervisor Mary Joyce D’Aurizio. But the fact that Congel’s missing agreed-to investment milestones is not encouraging, especially since future milestones are increasingly demanding. Next year, the first set of job creation requirements kick in: the project is supposed to generate 150 jobs by then, 50 of which are to be full time. Also by next year, Congel is supposed to have invested all of the $260 million he committed to under the PILOT agreement. If he misses that mark, D’Aurizio says, it’ll be a troubling sign. Officials say the Medley site has been stagnant partly because Congel has had difficulty getting financing for the project. At one point, he did have the money lined up,

they say, but the lender backed out. Officials say Congel hasn’t been able to find new financing, though he’s working on it. Town, school district, and county officials are in a tough position. They can’t let Congel flout a legal agreement, so it’s important to follow through on agreedupon penalties, Abbott says. If they don’t, they’ll signal to Congel and other developers that they can do whatever they want without consequences, he says. But if Congel doesn’t pay the fees and penalties, that could be grounds for terminating the PILOT agreement. And some officials don’t see that as a particularly attractive or wise option. They say if they go that route, the town, district, and county could lose more than they gain. “If he walks away and that place goes dark, we’ll receive no taxes,” D’Aurizio says.
continues from page 4
he says he wants to stop creating schools that are permanently in a remedial mode. But what’s the alternative? According to Partner, Vargas wants to covert some failing schools to parent- and teacherled charter “conversion” schools. Charter conversions are one of the options the State Education Department offers for turning around failing schools. But they aren’t like most public charter schools; they can have unions and they are still part of the host district. A majority of the parents in the school would have to agree to the conversion, and the Rochester school board would have to approve the change. “What I want to achieve is giving teachers and parents maximum autonomy and
maximum accountability,” Vargas said in a prepared statement. “The conversion concept holds great promise for making significant improvement in student achievement for a district that is running out of time.” Neither Urbanski nor Vargas would provide additional details except to say that they’re in negotiations over the idea. Urbanski says some school and city leaders predict that the proliferation of charter schools will dramatically shrink the district in the near future. One school board member says the district estimates losing 10 percent to 20 percent of its enrollment — though some observers say that’s the low end. Urbanski says losses of that magnitude
would be a disaster for city school students and parents. “It would exacerbate the gulf between the haves and the have-nots,” he says. Urbanski says he understands that Vargas is trying to improve student achievement by offering innovative school choices for students and parents. Urbanski says he supports innovation, too, which is why he backs creating parent- and teacher-led community schools. Under that model, parents and teachers would have more say in the operation of the school, though they would have negligible influence on curriculum.

Parsells Avenue is part of a residential neighborhood. Children and dogs play behind chain-link fences in shaggy grass, men and women gather to chat on porch stoops, and teenage men bicycle bare-chested down the street, their wheels gliding past a broken bottle or two. It’s not where you’d expect to get a taste and feel of Germany, but there it is: Swan Market. A small deli-restaurant, Swan is filled with hunting trophies (taxidermied deer heads, pheasants, and squirrels look down from the walls), celebratory pig and German tchotchkes (flags festooned with tassels and Bavarian seals, signs with happy pigs hungry to eat ham, 32 oz. steins) and, most importantly, food. One wall is lined with German treats, from chocolates to breads to pickles, while the
dining area is separated from the kitchen by a 12-foot deli case bursting with a tantalizing array of meats: bratwursts, sausages, smoked hams, steaks, pork chops, bacon. All meats are hand-cut and all sausages are house-made under the care and supervision of the market’s owner Barry Fischer. Deli items can be picked up any time during Swan’s open hours, but lunch is only served Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. At the height of the lunch rush — Saturdays, or during the live music performances on the last Thursday and Friday of each month — you’ll likely be in for a wait. It’s worth it. Diners are seated elbow to elbow at long, communal tables that are covered with blueand-white checkered plastic tablecloths. Each seat has easy access to bottles of Hoffman mustard, slices of German rye and brown bread (drier than what Americans are used to), and a slew of Styrofoam plates, either for the bread or to share your lunch with a friend (should you choose to be generous). Service is prompt and friendly, and your server will bring you one of the beers on tap while you mull over the day’s rotating lunch choices. The sausage platter ($7.50) comes with
your choice of two house-made sausages and two sides. Each sausage that I tried (six, and that was just scratching the surface) was served piping hot. The meat was flavorful and provided a satisfying snap with each bite. The two standouts were the smoked bratwurst, with a rich smoky flavor that complements the pork, and the andouille. While andouille is a sausage of French origin, it shines at Swan; the heat is spicy enough to spark the tongue to crave for more. The sides are served warm and, on the whole, are outstanding. Both the sauerkraut and red cabbage are in perfect balance: the ‘kraut’s sufficiently pungent notes are present but not overpoweringly so; the red cabbage is well-spiced, sour and sweet, and doesn’t make the common mistake of being cloying nor heavy-handed with clove or cinnamon. The German potato salad is marvelous. Its texture is less like American potato salad and more like smashed potatoes, with a creaminess amidst the chunks of potato. Vinegar gives the salad a welcome brightness and bits of bacon provide an added flavor punch. The one less-than-thrilling side is the noodles, served with or without gravy. Though the gravy is studded with sizeable chunks of pork, the noodles themselves are bland. They made me long for spaetzle —
($8.50 with two sides), which comes out sizzling. A burst of steam emits once you slice into the fried pork cutlet; the melted Swiss blurts out onto the plate and reveals thin slices of ham tucked inside. This is comfort-food goodness, and I’m a sucker for smoky ham, gooey cheese, and breaded-and-fried pork. If, like me, you have difficulty making a single choice in the face of many delicious options, try the sampler German garbage plate ($8.50), which comes with a selection of the day’s meats and four sides. During my visits, the choices both times were jager schnitzel, roast pork with stuffing, and rouladen. While each item is not a full-sized portion, you will probably have leftovers to take home. The roast pork is tucked under a hunk of stuffing and a bit of gravy. On one visit, the pork was on the cool side, but remained tender and mild. The stuffing is flat-out delicious. Dense without being heavy, it’s wonderfully savory and flavorful, in no small part because it is made with house-made sausage. A traditional German dish, rouladen is not my favorite. It holds the promise of being delicious — thin pieces of beef wrapped around fillings that include bacon, sausage, onion, pickles, and mustard, all topped with gravy — but I’ve yet to taste a version of the dish that lived up to its description. I feel the same way at Swan: the beef, though flavorful, is chewy and overwhelms the flavors of filling. The jager schnitzel, a breaded pork cutlet that’s fried and topped with a mushroom-studded brown gravy, is the best of the plate’s bunch. The gravy has a home-spun quality, like something your grandmother would cook — assuming she is both good in the kitchen and German. The mixture allows the onion and butter flavors to stand tall next to the mushrooms, and provides a nice textural contrast to the crispy cutlet. Swan’s rotating meat selection and casually convivial atmosphere make it a lunch spot to visit again and again. Each time I dined — once with my husband, once with a good friend, once with a couple and their 2-year-old son — my party was welcomed, well-served and well-fed. And it’s cheaper than a plane ticket to Frankfurt.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
It amazes me — even scares me a little — at the fragility of the path that led me to something I love. If I hadn’t been someplace in particular at a particular time I never would have met so-and-so, or experienced such-and-such. Hell, I almost didn’t meet my wife, and that would’ve sucked. So, on Friday night me and the toeheaded Pink Flamingess were taking our time getting to CMAC in the persistent drizzle. Opening bands weren’t our concern; headliners The Lumineers were. If we had dragged our asses or hung out in the parking lot with the beer-helmet crowd we would have missed Richmond, Virginia’s J Roddy Walston and the Business — and that would’ve sucked, too. With a hint of N’awlins swagger and sweet heat, Walston and his ragged denim crew parked themselves in and around the other bands’ gear and proceeded to slay the damp and shivering hipster dragon with some downhome, rough-and-raw rock ’n’ roll. Walston’s voice was amazingly soulful but lacked the trappings of a soul-singer as he swept the piano keys with long hair and nimble fingers. And the band’s grasp of
classic strains was only bested by its equally impressive harnessing of its warm, crunchy tone. Kind of Allman Brothers, kind of Black Crowes — or Black Oak Arkansas — kind of Dr. John, kind of pretty great. I can’t wait to see this band again. L.A.’s Cold War Kids followed. Short answer: they sucked. Long answer: they write very interesting tunes with a lot of dynamics and clever hooks, it’s just the sound that sucked eggs. The bass was so subsonic and loud that it completely drowned out everything else on stage. The audience seemed to enjoy hearing songs they recognized (when they could recognize them, I suppose). It’s got to be The Lumineers’ sincerity and lack of fanfare that has won the band its fans. It's nice to hear and see a band that has perfected its music and lets the components of the old song and dance fall where they may. For instance, the band didn’t hold on to its mega-hit “Ho Hey” until the end of the set, like you’d expect. And all the musicians on stage seemed to be playing for each other as much as for the packed CMAC shell.

At the forefront of funk-soul-rock act Black August’s infectious groove was Danielle Ponder, a fireball of soul, of consciousness, of action. The Rochester band was at its best, playing great shows, drawing big crowds, when it surprisingly opted for a fade to black.

JAZZ | BOB SNEIDER
The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival is still a week away, but you don’t have to wait that long to hear one of the festival’s highlights. Bob Sneider, who leads the festival’s late-night jam session at the Rochester Plaza, is a fantastic guitar player in the tradition of Jim Hall, Grant Green, and Barney Kessel. He excels in the trio and quartet setting we usually hear him in but, if you really want to appreciate his gorgeous tone and imaginative arrangements, check him out solo.

Selecting at Stratford Stratford Festival THROUGH OCTOBER 20 STRATFORD, ONTARIO, CANADA STRATFORDFESTIVAL.CA [ PREVIEW ] BY MICHAEL LASSER
Assume you can manage one night at this summer’s Stratford Festival. Even then, it will be costly — B&B’s, the good restaurants, and tickets have risen dramatically in recent years. But if you’re willing to set the alarm for an ungodly hour to make the four-plus-hour drive in time, you can complete a four-play marathon. The information you need is in the booklet available at the festival website. Now for the harder and more important matter of choosing the plays. That depends on how well you know Shakespeare. It’s madness (and maddening) to drive all that way and never see plays by, inarguably, the greatest of all writers in the English language. Never seen “Romeo and Juliet” (Festival Theatre, through October 19)? Then watch one of the most human of all romances, but be sure to give some attention to the other love stories in the text. The curtain rises on the threat of a rape, played for comedy, and moves on to the Capulets’ 16 CITY JUNE 12-18, 2013
soured marriage and the Nurse’s earthy memories. This production looks to be moreor-less traditional so you’ll get Shakespeare’s play rather than some director’s “vision.” It’s reasonable to choose a second play by Shakespeare among your four, probably “Othello” (Avon Theatre, August 4-October 19) or “The Merchant of Venice” (Festival Theatre, July 30-October 18). Both address questions of prejudice, one racial and the other religious. Iago, Othello’s closest friend and advisor, also turns the play into a study of blinding evil that succeeds, not only because of Iago’s brilliance, but because of Othello’s flawed greatness. It is a towering play and a great tragedy. Shakespeare uses one of his old tricks in “Merchant” — he makes a secondary character by far the most interesting. I never found Antonio (the floundering merchant in the title) or Portia (his clever beloved) especially appealing, but Shylock, the usurer they set out to destroy because he’s a Jew, brings a level of humanity — a combination of paternal affection, defensiveness, adaptability, and rage — that heats one of Shakespeare’s most ponderous plays (at least I think so) until it boils over with life. For the experienced Shakespeare hands, “Measure for Measure” (Tom Patterson
Theatre, through September 21) is a dark play you won’t often get to see. It is unsettlingly cynical in its examination of the limits of virtue — because the characters are imperfect and because the most virtuous among them comes closest to doing the greatest harm. It has little poetry but it makes a great deal of trouble for characters who are not easy to like. Most important is Angelo, played by Brian Bedford, a character who admires his own rigid virtue but succumbs without hesitation to lust and vengeance he cannot resist. I assume you’re looking for variety for the other two plays you’ll see. Here are three to choose from: “Fiddler on the Roof” (Festival Theatre, through October 20), “Blithe Spirit” (Avon Theatre, through October 20), and “The Three Musketeers” (Festival Theatre, through October 19). If you’ve never seen “Fiddler” except as a plodding movie weighed down by Topol as Tevya, then I suggest moving it to the top of your list. Dating from the mid-60’s, it shows us the “concept musical” taking form. Its irresistible score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick begins with the announcement and formation of the concept. “That I can tell you in one word,” Tevya proclaims,
“Tradition!” The line leads to one of the musical theater’s great opening numbers. Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit” is territory usually marked out by the Shaw Festival, but Stratford has been poaching for several years now and sometimes outdoing Shaw at its own game. A novelist hires a medium to conduct a séance, but she inadvertently calls back the ghost of his dead wife. When some people can see her and some people can’t, the comedy is out of the bag. Almost any play that stars Ben Carlson and Seana McKenna is worth seeing. Every now and then, the Festival loves to take a flamboyant story and turn it into a romp of a play. There is no yarn more flamboyant than Alexandre Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers,” commissioned by Stratford in 1968 and staged this summer for the fourth time since then. D’Artagnan and the gang are already buckling their swashes. Your kids will love it and so will you; just check your skepticism at the door. I’d be happy to see any of these plays, but if I could manage a second night, I’d consider for my two add-ons Samuel Beckett’s absurdist “Waiting for Godot” (Tom Patterson Theatre, June 13-September 20), along with John Murrell’s “Taking Shakespeare” (Studio Theatre, July 13-September 22) and Friedrich Schiller’s “Mary Stuart,” adapted by Peter Oswald (Tom Patterson Theatre, through September 21). “Godot” folds open with greater depths of wit and heart each time I see the ultimately moving story of two rootless men who survive each day by doing what they do because they do it. If you’ve never seen the play, you’ll understand the previous sentence after you do. Don’t be put off; it’s ultimately as funny as it is heartrending. “Taking Shakespeare” is a small play in which a jaded professor tutors a foundering freshman who happens to be the son of the university president. It could easily be banal — I haven’t seen it — but it stars Martha Henry as the tutor. For anyone who cares about acting, that should be all you need to know. The fight literally to the death between Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I is one of history’s great dramas. One is Catholic, the other Protestant, but the struggle is also for rule and reign, and the power that comes with them. Both women were intelligent, shrewd, and ruthless, but intrigue and betrayal are everywhere. It sounds as if it will crackle, especially with Seana McKenna as Elizabeth, Lucy Peacock as Mary, and Ben Carlson, Brian Dennehy, Geraint Wyn Davies, James Blendick, Patricia Collins, and Brian Tree in other parts. It’s hard to imagine a more superb cast in anything.

ART | “THE GENDER SHOW”; ART & TREASURES SALE
While we fight amongst ourselves over which couples should be recognized by the church and state and which social roles and physical traits are appropriate for which sets of gonads, some intelligent people look outside of their current and local settings to explore how others have created space for diversity and defined themselves freely. This weekend, George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will present “The Gender Show” (pictured), an exhibition of more than 200 photographs from the mid-19th century through today that portray gender in archetypal and non-traditional and subversive ways. The show includes works by Julia Margaret Cameron, Rineke Dijkstra, Robert Frank, Cindy Sherman, Edward Steichen, Andy Warhol, and others, with famous subjects such as Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, Frida Kahlo, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill. “The Gender Show” opens Saturday, June 15, and continues through Sunday, October 13. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is $5-$12, and members and children ages 12 and under are admitted for free. For more information, call 271-3361, or visit eastmanhouse.org. The Gallery Council of the Memorial Art Gallery will host the annual fundraiser, the Art & Treasures Sale, from Friday, June 14, through Sunday, June 16, at the MAG (500 University Ave.). The popular event features gently used antiques, jewelry, linens, china, silver, household items, small furniture pieces, artwork, and more. Hours are Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. Admission is free, except for the “early bird” preview night on Thursday, June 13, 6-8 p.m., when admission will be $10 at the door.

The 23rd Annual Maplewood Rose Celebration will be held Saturday, June 15, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., and Sunday, June 16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., in and around Maplewood Park and Rose Garden (at the corner of Lake and Driving Park avenues). The festival features more than 5,000 roses of 300 varieties at their peak, and festival-goers can enjoy wine and jazz, live music, rose workshops, gorge and falls tours, and a variety of children’s activities, including the new children’s gorge tours. The event also features the 3rd Annual All-Maplewood Art Exhibition, as well as a new-to-this-year artist’s consignment tent area. Music by The Dady Brothers and a Father’s Day picnic will close the event on Sunday afternoon.
Celebrate your Pa Dukes the day before Father’s Day with these local events. For more events, visit our online calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
Beer is proof that German monks loved us and wanted us to be happy, or something like that. Celebrate humanity’s ability to take raw materials and concoct delicious drinks of delirium with the 2nd Annual Rochester Real Beer Week. The celebration takes place Friday, June 14, through Sunday, June 23, and will feature a full schedule of events including beer launches, happy hours, tastings, pairings, socials, breakfasts, brunches, and dinners; concerts, trivia contests, games, Father’s Day specials, a burlesque show, and more.
Admission is free, and parking is available in lot at the corner of St. Paul Boulevard and Avenue E, directly across the Driving Park Bridge from Maplewood Park. A shuttle will be provided. Handicapped parking is available at Maplewood Park. Cyclists may ride to the event using the Genesee Riverway Trail.

SPECIAL EVENT | CUISINE CULTURE AND WNY POTTERY FEST
There are few things more important or worthy in life than breaking bread with others. Combine good, local cuisine with well-crafted tableware (and more) this weekend when you visit the Western New York Pottery Festival, which takes place Saturday, June 15, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (with a Pottery Party 5:30-10 p.m.) and Sunday, June 16, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Studio Sales Pottery (5557 E. Avon Road in Avon). This year’s featured artists are Rochester’s Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz and Richard Aerni. The juried, clay-exclusive festival features more than 20 local and national artists, who will offer work for sale and also host public throwing, hand-building, and firing demonstrations during the event. The event’s silent auction, which runs Saturday morning through Sunday at 4 p.m., will benefit Chances and Changes, the battered women’s shelter of Livingston County. A Clay Olympics event will take place on Sunday 10:30 a.m.-4 p.m., during which vendors will compete in five-minute increments to complete such tasks as wheel-throwing the tallest cylinder and pulling handles while blindfolded. Admission to the festival is free. On Saturday evening, 5:30-10 p.m., enjoy the Pottery Party, featuring Cuisine Culture, which hosts the annual Dinner in the Vineyard (held later this year on September 21), with food by Rio Tamatalan, live, music, wine and beer. Tickets are $35 and include a handmade cup. For more information, call 226-3030 or visit cuisineculturenow.com. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY Canandaigua Civic Center, 250 N Bloomfield Rd, Canandaigua.

THEATER | “BIG PANTS & BOTOX”
As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve grown frustrated with much of the frivolousness and vapidity of the “girl culture” that’s been slung at us since birth, but with growing evidence of my aging (the stray grays, the laugh lines), I also feel sensitive to the weird pressures that the onset of maturity place on a lady. The insecurity stuff is real and it’s strange to navigate, but life is also far too short to spend too much time and resources worrying about it. So let’s laugh, instead. Geva Theatre’s summer season kicks off this week with “Big Pants & Botox,” the new show from Louise Roche, the creator of “Girls Night: the Musical” and “Girl Talk.” The story follows Barbara, who has just survived a significant birthday, and enters her fifth decade on an emotional roller coaster with a body that won’t quite cooperate like it used to. Critics have found the show to be highly relatable and warn that it should not be watched with a full bladder. The production begins its run Wednesday, June 12, 7:30 p.m., and continues through June 29 with show times MondaysFridays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 3 & 8 p.m. Ticket prices start at $38.

Catharsis without the dignity of tragedy [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“The Purge” (R), DIRECTED BY JAMES DEMONACO NOW PLAYING
Like it or not, popular film, like other popular arts, often reflects important currents and significant truths appropriate to its time and place, providing a telling commentary on its cultural context. All those familiar summer blockbusters, for example, suggest some not entirely inspiring notions about the movie-going public’s demand for the constant bombardment of sound and spectacle that rattles the cineplexes all over this great nation. Occasionally, however, a relatively
modest, straightforward shocker like “The Purge” articulates some disturbing concepts within its simple situation and events. Set in the foreseeable future of 2022, the movie, a combination of thriller, horror, and science fiction, outlines a reasonably plausible circumstance, the notion that the federal government, under the direction of a body the media in the picture call “the new founding fathers,” celebrates an annual Purge Day, 12 hours when the good folk of this nation can release a year’s worth of pent-up rage and frustration in any way they choose, with no interference from law enforcement, firefighters, or medical personnel. As grainy video footage shows, the policy creates a night of extreme violence, with armed citizens, usually in groups, attacking any victim they find with their allowed weapons, including baseball bats, axes, machetes, shotguns, submachine guns, and so on (apparently no bazookas are permitted). The movie focuses on James Sandin (Ethan Hawke), a most successful salesman of home-

security systems, a necessity for those who can afford them, who settles into his gated mansion in an upscale neighborhood with his family to sit out Purge Night in safety, watching the mayhem on TV. The nuclear family suffers from a few problems — Sandin’s petulant teenage daughter Zoey (Adelaide Kane) is dating an unsuitable young man and his thoughtful, sensitive son Charlie (Max Burkholder) questions the whole notion of the Purge and a career built on it. Sandin explains that the Purge actually diminishes crime, because the people who can afford weapons and defenses vent their anger against the underclass — the homeless, minorities, people roaming the streets who might commit criminal acts and who therefore somehow deserve to be punished or even eliminated. That theory works out in reality when Charlie opens one of their steel doors to allow a wounded black man fleeing from a mob (Edwin Hodge) into the home. An armed crew of crazies, led by a slick-talking young man (Rhys Wakefield) shows up, politely requesting the return of the victim — he calls him a swine — so that he and his friends can finish him off. Otherwise, they will demolish the security system and punish the whole Sandin family. The family’s dilemma in a perverse way recalls those wonderful days of the Cold War, when people debated the ethics of excluding neighbors from their backyard bomb shelters. Torn between sacrificing an innocent man and withstanding an

Midnight ramblers [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“Before Midnight” (R), DIRECTED BY RICHARD LINKLATER OPENS FRIDAY
assault from armed strangers, they argue desperately about a solution. The situation also underlines the class system, which the script frequently emphasizes, in which the rich and privileged own weaponry and dwell in safety, while the rest of the populace remains vulnerable, deserving attack from the upper classes, a kind of social Darwinism run amok. (In a nice touch, Rhys Wakefield dresses like the Platonic ideal of a preppie and speaks in a boarding-school accent). The compact script and sensible length of “The Purge” contrast favorably with the overblown blockbusters and witless comedies currently clogging up the theaters. Its quick cuts from numerous closeups and simultaneous actions maintain both tension and a sense of character — the actors reveal their feelings as much through expression and gesture as through speech. The low camera placements and subjective point-of-view shots bring the audience fully into the highly fraught situation, emphasizing the family’s fear and confusion. The film moves efficiently, never allowing the ethical problems to interfere with the rapid tempo and startling violence of the action. It also provides a number of twists and shocks that actually shouldn’t surprise, since they rise naturally from the situation and the people. When some characters participate in a quasi-religious ceremony to celebrate their actions, it eerily suggests a kind of organic development from contemporary rightwing politics and belief to the meanings of the Purge. Is this a great country or what?
It’s been 19 years since movie audiences were first introduced to Jesse and Céline, the chatty, opinionated couple played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, who have been the focus of the now three movies in Richard Linklater’s “Before” series of films. In 1994’s “Before Sunrise,” we watched as the pair met by chance aboard a train traveling through Europe, fell in love while spending an idyllic night chatting and strolling the streets of Vienna, then parted ways with a promise to meet again in six months’ time. A whopping nine years later, “Before Sunset” gave us the next chapter in the relationship, as Céline and Jesse met again in Paris. It’s once again been nine years since that film came out, and now we have “Before Midnight” to give us a peek at how their relationship has progressed. We quickly learn that Jesse and Céline are indeed still together. They’ve just spent the summer staying with friends in Greece, and they have two adorable twin girls together. As their holiday comes to an end, their friends decide to gift them

with a much-deserved night alone in a hotel. They’ll finally have some time together, without their children constantly underfoot. Jesse and Celine walk, they talk, take in the sights, and slowly make their way to the hotel room that’s waiting for them. That’s about it, in terms of plot. But as longtime viewers of this series know, you can get a lot of dramatic mileage out of a simple conversation. After all this time, it’s safe to say that if you’re watching this film, you’re invested in Céline and Jesse’s relationship. With that in mind, it’s interesting to note that “Midnight” probably doesn’t go in the direction that most fans might have hoped, but rather in a way that feels real and honest. This film is likely to be at least slightly disappointing to the true romantics out there, but that shouldn’t be entirely shocking to fans, given the inclination of the minds behind the series to, whenever possible, deflate their audiences’ idealized conceptions of love (at least, the kind typically reflected on the big screen). After all, “Before Sunset” did begin with the revelation that Jesse and Céline did not make good on their promise to meet up again after their first night together. This is a darker film than either of the previous movies, and that feels right for a couple as interesting, flawed, and intelligent, but with as much baggage as these two characters have. At the end of the second film, it was implied that Jesse was choosing to leave his wife and child to be with Céline. This film shows that they’re still dealing with the very real consequences of that decision. Jesse feels that he hasn’t been enough of a father to the son he has with his ex-wife, and wonders whether he and Céline should move to America so he can be closer to him. Céline, for her part, is adamantly against a move, being on the verge of a great new job and unwilling to uproot their children.
These aren’t the superfluous, contrived problems that provide the conflict in a traditional romantic comedy; these are real issues that couples may face, ones that could potentially doom a relationship, no matter how strong. I don’t think it’s spoiling anything to say that the centerpiece of the film is a lengthy argument between the couple, as their problems come to a head inside the hotel room that was to provide a romantic escape. The film has a good ear for the way people in long-term relationships fight; those in the audience who have been with their partners for any lengthy amount of time may find themselves wincing in recognition. Both Hawke and Delpy inhabit these roles so well, and both turn in natural, seamless performances. As with “Before Sunset,” they each had a large hand in writing the script for the film and helped contribute to the way these characters have developed. Richard Linklater’s assured direction turns those long, unbroken takes of conversation into gripping cinema. And man, do those conversations manage to pack an emotional wallop. The film is honest (sometimes brutally so) about how hard maintaining a romantic relationship can be. There will always be rough patches, the film seems to say, but those periods don’t necessarily mean that love has disappeared entirely from a relationship. Couples who stumble into this film on a date night will likely find that they have a lot to talk about after the film ends, and there’s much that will resonate with anyone who’s been in any sort of romantic relationship. As with the previous films, the conclusion is open-ended, and there’s still much that can be explored should Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy decide that they wish to return to these characters. Hopefully in another nine years. See an accompanying video for this article at:

Substantial House on a Special Street 29 Inglewood Drive The welcoming front porch of 29 Inglewood Drive is the perfect spot to enjoy a gracious and spacious streetscape. The very long block of Inglewood between Thurston Road and Genesee Park Boulevard in Rochester’s 19th Ward is canopied with towering, mature trees, and all of the houses have very deep front yards. The entire effect is that of a peaceful park. The front door of this 1924 home opens into a foyer with an original tile floor, and a multipaned glass door opens into the expansive living room. The focus of the living room is the fireplace flanked with built-in bookcases topped by decorative stained glass windows. Three large windows bring sunlight to the room. The crown molding in the living and dining rooms, and the hardwood floors throughout the house are assets not often found in newer homes. A wood-framed opening leads to the dining room, with light streaming in from a bay window. An ample powder room off the dining room was constructed from the butler’s pantry. The kitchen, adjoining the dining room, has a new ceramic tile floor, and offers room for a small table for a quick family meal. The wide stairway to the second floor has a landing and leads to a roomy second floor hall—the three bedrooms and the large full bath open onto it. The master bedroom has a remarkable four season former sleeping porch. With extra-large windows on three sides, this sunny room could be a nursery, a home-office, a sewing room, or an upstairs sitting room.
The attic is unfinished but could be utilized as an additional bedroom or office space. The full basement could contain a workshop and offers plenty of space for storage. A note to University of Rochester employees and staff, this 1558 square-foot house qualifies for a University Home Ownership Incentive Grant.
