THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with STEWART OKSENHORN

KIDS’ STUFF THE CLASSIC BROADWAY story — starryeyed small-town girl arrives in Manhattan, stumbles her way onto the stage — became one of the classic Broadway musicals in “42nd Street.” And it is Broadway in all its simple glory: uplifting story, tons of dancing, hummable songs like “We’re in the Money” and “Lullaby of Broadway.” The original production, from 1980, won the Tony for best musical and ran for nearly 3,500 performances. And when local director Jayne Gottlieb launched her children’s company eight years ago, she started on “42nd Street.” Now Gottlieb has a revival of her own, restaging the show at Carbondale’s PAC3, Friday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10, with two performances on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Jayne Gottlieb Productions presents the musical “42nd Street” Friday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10, at PAC3 in Carbondale.

CURRENTEVENTS theater edition SEMI-PROFESSIONAL

ONE-WOMAN

Paonia actor Thea Deley performs her one-woman show “Jesus Loves You! (and hates me)” on Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Thunder River Theatre in Carbondale

FOR THEA DELEY, a strict childhood of church, God and Protestantism was overwhelming. It was products like stoning kits, Sunday school teachers warning about a toothpaste that might displease the Almighty, and perhaps most difficult of all, an atmosphere that didn’t permit questioning of such matters, especially by kids. Deley has managed to sort out the confusion, anger and humor in the one-woman, multi-media satire “Jesus Loves You! (but hates me),” which debuted in Paonia in 2011 and opened in Denver earlier this year. The Paonia resident brings the piece to the Thunder River Theatre in Carbondale on Saturday, Nov. 9; former valley musician Ellen Stapenhorst makes a special appearance.

SO, WITH THEIR production of “The Producers,” is Aspen Community Theatre going its standard route of resurrecting familiar, classic musicals? Or are they stepping into the more recent Broadway history? It depends how you look at it. “The Producers” was originally Mel Brooks’ 1968 satirical film about the making of a musical, “Springtime for Hitler,” intended to be a flop. In 2001, the story reappeared as a genuine Broadway musical, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and became a monster hit, winning a record 12 Tonys. A better question: Does it matter? Brooks’ material, in any form, is hilarious, a dark, absurd and perfectly schmaltzy send-up of Broadway. ACT’s version stars Bob Moore as the slick con-man Max Bialystock and Corey Simpson as the wanna-be producer Leo Bloom, with Wendy Moore directing. “The Producers” opens Friday, Nov. 8, with additional dates through Nov. 17, at the Aspen District Theatre.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with JOHN COLSON

Let’s talk about health care reform, shall we? IT’S INSURING time again, and as in the old Buck Owens song, “Crying Time,” we’re all due for a bout of tears and anguish as the Affordable Care Act (derisively named Obamacare) works its way through the labyrinthine mine fields and political haranguing from President Obama’s detractors that have hobbled the ACA from its inception. It’s been a tough road for the ACA, which has experienced more trouble in its national roll-out than a Chihuahua trying to give birth to a puppy that is half bull-mastiff. The ACA, one might recall, was born out of the need to get affordable, reliable and meaningful health care to some 47 million Americans who had no health insurance and who too often end up going to the emergency room for relief from everything from cold symptoms and other relatively minor complaints, to more serious and costly diseases, accidents and afflictions that we all experience regardless of whether we have health insurance. The ACA also was pledged to deal with some of the less benign affects of having our health care system controlled by privateers, in the form of both greedy medical professionals and, guess who, the insurance industry. These include the industry’s rule that a pre-existing condition of one sort or another can be used as justification for denying someone health care coverage. That particular nasty practice is now supposed to be a thing of the past, and we can thank President Barack Obama for that. I have to say that all the caterwauling about how difficult it is for people to navigate the new “health care marketplaces,” and how in some areas the ACA actually sets people up for higher insurance premiums than they had before, is missing the point. Sure, people want someone to blame when things don’t work the way we were promised they would work. But the fact of the matter is that any program intended to solve deeply rooted procedural problems, in something as inherently flawed as the U.S. health care system, is going

to get off to a very bumpy start, if it gets off the ground at all. That’s because there remain an awful lot of people in this nation, Republicans and their ilk mostly, whose main plan of action right now is to see that the ACA fails, and that they can blame Obama and the Democrats for that failure. And they don’t care how many lies they have to tell to achieve that goal. This cause is helped, unfortunately, by this country’s basic tendency toward racism. White folk, whether middle or lower class, are easily convinced that any program aimed at helping the downtrodden can only be an effort to hand over precious money and resources to people of color, especially when the man at the helm of that program happens to be black. Republicans know that, and are using it. Such an attitude, otherwise known as “shooting off your nose to spite your face,” is fundamentally wrong and counter to the interests of the whole country, but it persists. I should note that I am not a big fan of the ACA, but only because it does not go far enough. It leaves us in the hands of the insurance industry and lawyers, neither of which has our health as their primary point of interest. When Obama was first running for president in 2008, he began by trumpeting the benefits of something known as “single-payer health care,” which would have taken the health insurance industry out of the driver’s seat and, essentially, have made Medicare available to all, not just senior citizens. It has worked in other countries around the globe, and it is the only sensible way to manage health care. Leaving it up to private industry, which is interested only in high profits, is the wrong way to go. That’s what got us into the mess we’re in. As the Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein recently wrote, “I don’t think the private (health care) insurance industry should exist.” But for now, it’s what we have to work with, so let’s make it work.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

The area surrounding Parachute continued to resemble this 1908 photo until its early 1980s’ transformation by the oil shale boom.

OIL SHALE CITY PRIOR TO LADY BIRD JOHNSON’S campaign to beautify America’s highways, signs of various sizes, shapes and graphic quality obscured the “purple mountain majesties” between Aspen and Grand Junction. On the most desolate stretch of road between Rifle and the beginning of Ruby Canyon, such intermittent eyesores foretold the enchantments of yet-tobe-developed Oil Shale City. Fascinated, as a child I would ask where the city was located. As I aged, I kept asking when would it appear? Oil Shale City embodied a childhood constant: undeveloped land destined for greatness. I yearned to watch an historic vision materialize. While President Eisenhower’s Interstate System came under construction nationwide, a two-lane highway linked the small towns of the valley: Newcastle, Rifle, Silt, and what was then called Grand Valley. Every summer, as I meandered along that road to Little League games, I saw the intriguing signs. No houses other than those pictured on the signs ever looked back at me from those treeless, arid, empty spaces; but emptiness did not deter developers’ dreams of the future city. In 1958, belief in the profitability of wringing oil from shale spurred a Cornell University architectural graduate studies project. Ultimately, designs for a city of 350,000 were created for the area. Land speculators offered get-in-on-the-ground-floor land (not water) for bargain prices.

From the turn of the 20th century, speculators remained confident that the area could produce oil. Of the investors who understood that

War and the oil embargo of 1979 became catalysts that finally gave rise to Oil Shale City. Instead of siting the development on long-speculated

UNLIKE THE DECADES-LONG DECLINE OF THE GOLD AND SILVER BUSTS, THE NEW CITY DISINTEGRATED ALMOST AS QUICKLY AS IT WAS BUILT. IN MAY OF 1982, ON WHAT IS STILL REMEMBERED AS BLACK SUNDAY, WITH NO WARNING, EXXON LOCKED ITS GATES. ALTHOUGH UNION OIL EASED THE IMPACT BY CONTINUING THEIR PROJECTS, BY AND LARGE THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY COLLAPSED. the plentiful oil was locked in rock, many underestimated the hurdle of developing an extraction method. In addition to overcoming the technological challenge, there was the matter of waiting for the price of oil to significantly exceed the cost of production. Nevertheless, it was never difficult for an imaginative youth to find someone who could vividly describe the imminent advent of Oil Shale City. The Iranian Revolution, Iran-Iraq

land, Exxon—the dominant investor— selected the existing town of Grand Valley (which had recently changed its name, in a close vote, to Parachute). New subdivisions to the south of Parachute, on Battlement Mesa, were built by a Halliburton subsidiary, a major contractor for military housing: Kellogg, Brown and Root. The oil shale boom rivaled Colorado’s gold- and silver- rushes for immediate growth. A school system that had served 150 (K-12) students swelled to 500 in

one year, 700 the next. Temporary housing accommodated many workers while Kellogg, Brown and Root labored to build permanent housing, along with instant infrastructure: everything from a fire station to a sewer and water system. Throughout the process, the entire community of families remained in flux. Unlike the decades-long decline of the gold and silver busts, the new city disintegrated almost as quickly as it was built. In May of 1982, on what is still remembered as Black Sunday, with no warning, Exxon locked its gates. Although Union Oil eased the impact by continuing their projects, by and large the entire community collapsed. With no modern ghost town equivalent, Battlement Mesa, replete with a boom-time golf course, marketed itself as a retirement community. As the song “Save your Confederate Money, Boys” (attributed by some counts to Marks-Fort-Stone) goes, some cling to hope that the “South Shall Rise Again.” In the face of a new oil crisis, the oil shale industry could do likewise; but due to the transformation of Battlement Mesa, perhaps future developers would reconsider the original planned site, west on I-70. Something in my soul still cries out for that Oil Shale City in the sky. Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

“STATE SKI PATROLS visit Highlands,” announced The Aspen Times on March 29, 1984. “More than 200 ski patrolmen from around the state, representing 15 or more areas, will be showing their stuff at a variety of competitions and parties at the Aspen Highlands Wednesday.” The competitions included a toboggan transport race down the bumpy terrain of Floradora (now Scarlett’s), a dual slalom race down Thunderbowl, and a rescue beacon hunt. In addition, patrol teams also participated in a figure eight powder skiing competition on the Highland Bowl, “the only event the public won’t get to see. A three man panel of judges will score the participants for symmetry, roundness, adherence to the fall line, maintaining a constant distance between the skiers and the synchronization of the pair’s turns. The judges will review the performances on video tape after watching the live runs and $500 will be awarded to the best team, $300 for second place and $100 for first place.”

GUNNER’S LIBATIONS

by JEANNE MCGOVERN

SPANISH COFFEE The recent blast of winter — as well as talking with folks for this week’s cover story about the upcoming ski season — put me in an après frame of mind. And when it comes to a hot toddy by a roaring fire, the Limelight’s Spanish Coffee is right on the mark. More than your standard “coffee drink,” this concoction includes flames (yes, flames), caramelized sugar and whipped cream (so sweet), and a serious kick (white rum and Kahlua, you bet). Served in a wine glass on the comfy couches in the Limelight lounge, this version of a Spanish Coffee will get you geared up for the ski season ahead — and, of course, the après-ski scene. Gunilla Asher is taking a break from the bar scene, so we’re turning this page over to you. Email jmcgovern@aspentimes. com with what cocktails you’re mixing, what libations you’re drinking, what tastes have tempted your tastebuds and we’ll share them with our readers. Cheers!

WINEINK

WORDS to DRINK BY

THE COLLABORATORS

IN WASHINGTON, WINEMAKERS MAKE BETTER WINE. TOGETHER. DURING MY recent sojourn to the magnificent wine country of Washington state, I was struck by the close-knit nature of the winemaking community. In Cascadia, it seems that collaboration is as much a product of spirit as it is of necessity. In separate visits to wineries in three different regions of the state, I tasted that spirit firsthand in outstanding wines borne from collaborations between growers and winemakers. Each of these tastings represented different KELLY J. HAYES business and creative models, but each was as valid as the other, proven by what was poured in the glass.

COL SOLARE

My first stop was in formerly rural Woodinville, the town just north of Seattle that has bloomed around Chateau St. Michelle, (CSM), Washington’s definitive winery. I had come to taste Col Solare, a wine made by CSM in partnership with Tuscany’s Marchesi Antinori. In the 1990s, Washington wine legend Allen Shoup, then-CEO of Chateau Ste. Michelle, was at the forefront of the development and marketing of the Washington wine community. Shoup recognized the potential of not just the fruit that was grown in the state, but the value of working with established figures in international wine cultures to maximize the attributes of different varietals. As an example, CSM, a pioneer in the production of Washington State Riesling, formed a partnership with Germany’s Riesling savant, Dr. Ernst Loosen, to create Eroica, perhaps America’s best-known Riesling. The Antinoris, who have been making wine since 1385 in the hills of Tuscany, had embraced the global grape concept and began exploring wine regions around the world to find perfect pockets for promising varietals. Recognizing potential in Washington, they paired with CSM to create Col Solare, a Cabernet

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

Sauvignon-based wine from one of the world’s perfect Cabernet growing regions. In 1995, the coupling released the first vintage of their Washington wine, crafted with Italian influence. A decade later, Col Solare, which means “shining hill,” realized its true destiny when Ted Baseler, the current CEO of CSM, and the Antinoris broke ground on a spectacular mountaintop winery overlooking the postage stampsized Red Mountain AVA in eastern Washington. The collaboration has resulted in some of the most powerful and expressive Cabernets found anywhere and proven the value of bringing people and ideas from different worlds together to create magic.

FORCE MAJEURE

Just down the hill from Col Solare sits the famed Ciel du Cheval Vineyard. It is the Holy Grail for Washington winemakers. Planted more than 40 years ago, this piece of land bakes under the hottest sun imaginable and the grapes grow on nutrient-stressed vines until they explode with ripeness and flavor. It is a true gem, and a significant portion of its renown is due to Ryan Johnson, who manages the property with pure passion. A few, the lucky few of Washington’s most significant winemakers — like Ben Smith of Cadence, Ross Mickel of Ross Andrew Winery and James Mantone of Syncline — have been able to purchase fruit from the vineyard to make their wines. When it came to creating his own label, Johnson knew that Red Mountain was where he wanted to be and that these winemakers were the people with whom he wanted to work. So, with partner and businessman Paul McBride, an investment was made in a parcel of property high up on the rocky hillside above the Ciel du Cheval. It is a piece of land that defines the Red Mountain AVA. Johnson’s plan was to plant the grapes he wanted, in the manner he wanted to plant them, and then collaborate with the winemakers he most respected to make wines

that reflected, equally, the place, the grower and the winemaker. After a false start under a label called Grand Reve, Johnson renamed the project Force Majeure. He produces wines made by six of the most exciting winemakers in the state, each one a part of the “Collaboration Series.” Each wine is given a designation, Collaboration I, II, IV, etc., to identify the grape varietals and the winemaker. These are beautiful wines, but perhaps more importantly, while they are vineyard-driven and made by talented winemakers, they are clearly crafted by the viticulturist who drives the project.

LONG SHADOWS

Further east in Walla Walla, Allen Shoup created a new project that captured the attention and the talents of many of the world’s most preeminent wine professionals. Shoup’s concept was to offer winemakers of pedigree from around the world the opportunity to make their own wine in Washington

using fruit from the region. Not only would Washington benefit from the influence of these wine professionals, but also, the world would learn about the amazing grapes that are grown there. Winemakers like Randy Dunn, a Cabernet king from the Napa Valley, Australia’s John Duval, who is one of just four men to make the iconic Grange, French consultant Michel Roland, and Italian wine legends Ambrogio and Giovanni were given a place and access to grapes to make Washington wines in their own image. In all eight, “Vintner Partners” make their own wines under separate labels at Long Shadows. An unprecedented undertaking. Three projects and a multitude of wines — all defined by the spirit of collaboration. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soonto-be-designated appellation of Old Snowmass with his wife, Linda, and a black Lab named Vino. He can be reached at malibukj@aol.com.

NOTEWORTHY 2009 LONG SHADOWS “SEQUL” SYRAH This Syrah, crafted by Australia’s John Duval, is a blend of grapes from different Columbia Valley vineyards. Big and expressive, it is a wine that says Syrah with a northwest accent. Cherries, spices and an earthy nuttiness on the finish. A gem. 2010 FORCE MAJEURE COLLABORATION SERIES “III” This September, Force Majeure named Mike Macmorran the estate winemaker for their remarkable property. Macmorran, who has been winemaker at Mark Ryan Winery, produces the Series III wine. 2009 COL SOLARE “COMPONENT COLLECTION” RED MOUNTAIN The first Cabernet Sauvignon produced at the winery using 100% Red Mountain fruit from the Klipsun and Kiona vineyards. Just 200 cases produced, this wine has a touch of Malbec and drop of Cabernet Franc. Dried blueberries, a little smoke and some chewy leather are “components,” but this is a wine that will evolve with time. A wine of place.

FROM ASPEN, WITH LOVE

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

OLÉ, OLÉ!

OAXACAN WEEK AT JIMMY’S SPICES UP OFFSEASON THE ZAPOTEC people of southern Mexico have a saying: “You don’t find mezcal; mezcal finds you.” Jimmy Yeager shares this tidbit about tequila’s sultry cousin shortly before kicking off the biannual, offseason Oaxacan Week (Nov. 1-17) at Jimmy’s: An American Restaurant. As it turns out, that was precisely his experience. “I have no recollection of when I AMANDA first tasted them,” Yeager RAE says of mezcal, sounding genuinely amazed. “I just know that when I opened [Jimmy’s, in 1997], I had four bottles on my back bar. They were new spirits: I had to find them and have them brought into Colorado. So, as far as I’m concerned, they did find me. It’s really strange.” It’s no news flash that Jimmy’s 100plus tequila collection is enviable — word has spread across the country thanks to regular features in national press and Yeager’s tasting seminars at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen for the last 16 years — but its 24 bottles of mezcal, that other agave spirit, might be even more impressive. Mezcal has been imported into the U.S. only in the past couple of decades, and the spirit has grown popular in just the last few years. As tequila hails from the Jalicso region north of Mexico City, Oaxacan Week is showcasing mezcal, which is produced about 500 miles south of the state capital. But it can be a polarizing bar pick. “There’s a certain energy; some people have an immediate connection to the spirit,” Yeager says. “Some people don’t. They’re not for everyone. They’re strong, intensely flavored. Smoky is the go-to adjective, but in reality, what’s really there are flavors of the cooked earth.” Yeager details mezcal’s long, layered production (see “Making Mezcal,” opposite page) with the precision of a distiller sharing his methods with an apprentice. Which makes sense, as the restaurateur

travels nearly every year to Oaxaca to participate in the process with the Zapotec Native Americans. “I have a real strong affinity to Oaxaca,” Yeager says. “The culture, the mezcal, the food is some of the greatest I’ve ever had.” For Oaxacan Week, Yeager has created three flights of three mezcals each ($15-24), served in copitas, or traditional clay cups. Flights focus on the Del Maguey brand, which kicked off Yeager’s obsession so boldly that owner Ron Cooper called out of the blue in 1997, awed that Jimmy’s had sold more bottles in seven months than all other outlets in the company’s three-year history. Not into the straight stuff? Ten-dollar specialty cocktails, such as a Smokey Margarita or the Vida Buena — a Mexican Negroni — offer an easy introduction. (A staff favorite is the off-menu Mezcal Mule.) Naturally, Mexico native and Jimmy’s executive chef Manny Lopez is serving classic Oaxacan cuisine: poblano pepper stuffed with imported quesillo cheese and spicy salsa, pork loin roasted in adobo over a vegetable-fruit medley, and, of course, the region’s quintessential dish: chicken mole. “I come from Veracruz, which is neighbors with Oaxaca,” says Lopez, who also spent time in the nearby city of Puebla. “They are all rich in the tradition of mole, but each has a unique approach. The base is similar; what changes is the chiles and the addition — or not — of chocolate.” True to Oaxacan-style mole negro, Lopez’s secret recipe blends at least three kinds of dark chiles and omits chocolate; spices, nuts, tortilla and a splash of mezcal are some of the other 15-plus ingredients in the decadent, slow-simmered sauce, which cloaks tender pieces of roasted chicken. Dessert is an autumn favorite south of the border: thick wedges of Mexican pumpkin coated with cane sugar and canella, roasted until decadently soft and caramelized, accompanied by housemade ginger frozen yogurt, crushed pepitas, and a honey-lavender-soaked chip of

toasted bread. “Canella is from Mexico, and has a spicier finish,” Lopez explains. “Even though we’re using local produce, we want to use authentic spices. When we talk about ‘An American Restaurant,’ we (mean) the entire Americas, not just to the border of the U.S. Salsa and tango nights are big here. We like to celebrate things that have very deep roots, even though we’re far away.” In an ever-evolving dining landscape, Jimmy’s is an Aspen landmark. “We use the quiet time to re-establish relationships with

locals,” Yeager says. “During the high seasons some people are too busy or don’t want to fight the crowds. We won’t see certain locals in the winter, then we see them in April/ May and October/November.” (Thai Week, which returns in the spring, is another hit with regulars.) It’s only fitting that Jimmy’s complete experience of food and drink indigenous to Oaxaca follows Mexico’s most beloved celebration, Dia de los Muertos (Oct. 31 to Nov. 2). “On any major holiday, mole will be present,” Lopez says. “It’s not a quick whip, so people see it as something important.” Offseason in Aspen certainly counts as a major holiday, si?

MAKING MEZCAL “I can’t think of any other mainstream spirit made on this level of handcrafted process,” says mezcal aficionado and Jimmy’s: An American Restaurant owner Jimmy Yeager. “From growing the agave plant to harvesting to roasting — in the earth, not in a manmade oven — to chopping, crushing the roasted agaves to fermentation in wood tanks to distillation in either copper pot stills or clay pre-Columbian/Filipino-style stills to bottling, everything is by hand.” On annual pilgrimages to the Oaxaca region of Mexico for the past 17 years — often with bartenders and managers in tow — Yeager joins the Zapotec Native Americans in producing the smoky spirit. It’s no small feat: fires are built in massive earth pits, covered with rocks, and left to burn to ash. Meanwhile, the fronds or leaves of the maguey plan, a type of agave, are woven into mats. When the fires are out and rocks are red-hot, the maguey mats are placed on top, along with bagasse, the fiber

left over from the previous batch of cooked, roasted, and shredded agave. Workers dump more than 2 tons of dirt, pour 5 gallons of water through a hole on top, and leave it alone for anywhere from three days to three weeks. “The agaves steam-roast in the earth and go from emerald green to this caramelized brown,” Yeager says. “The soil is deep-red clay, like we have here in Colorado; all that flavor gets sucked in. When people taste mezcal, the closest thing (their) mind can associate is campfire smoke.” Oaxaca’s terroir lends other, subtle nuances. “The Tobala mezcal (on Jimmy’s tasting flight), I couldn’t figure out why there was a faint hint of rose in the spirit until I went down there and saw these beautiful rose bushes behind the fermentation tanks,” Yeager says. “All fermentation is naturally occurring, so whatever is floating around in the air — rose, juniper, hibiscus — the yeast carries those aromas into the spirit. They’re really complex.”

IT’S THE QUESTION of the moment: “Will the mountain open early?”

“I’d say it’s more of a probability than a possibility at this point,” said Rich Burkley, vice president of mountain operations for the Aspen Skiing Co., after a two-day storm dumped more than a foot of fresh snow on the local ski slopes. In fact, Burkley said there’s some 50-plus inches of fluff on the area’s highest peaks and an average of 30 inches at above 10,000 feet (for the record, the top of Aspen Mountain stands at 11,212 feet). “It looks terrific up there, and I’m not just saying that as a Skico spokesperson,” Burkley said on Tuesday, Nov. 5. “It really looks and feels like ski season.”

From snowmakers and snowcat drivers to ski patrollers and bootpackers, an army of people are already at work getting the slopes ready for the opening of ski season on Aspen, Snowmass, Highlands and Buttermilk.

FIRST TRACKS While the Aspen Skiing Co. didn’t undertake any major on-mountain improvements for the 2013-2014 season, trails crews did do some glading at Aspen Highlands in the Deep Temerity trees to open up two new runs: Lucky Find and Mystery Gully. Beyond that, Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle said the company has been focusing on continued improvements to last season’s additions: a new Elk Camp restaurant at Snowmass, as well as the addition of 230 skiable acres of “sidecountry” terrain on Burnt Mountain at Snowmass.

While Burkley couldn’t reveal exactly when the slopes of Aspen and Snowmass might open, he said it’s a safe bet that the lifts will crank up before the originally scheduled Thanksgiving Day opening (Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are slated to open Dec. 14) — especially if the current weather cycle of snow showers and cold temperatures continues. “It looks promising for an early opening,” confirmed Skico spokesman Jeff Hanle. “With each storm, and with continued cold temperatures, it looks better and better.” Of course getting the mountains ready to open is no easy feat; fasttracking the job can be even more daunting. Thankfully, the Skico has an army of people working on the hill daily. From snowmakers and snowcat drivers to ski patrollers and bootpackers, a cadre of local workers are on the job. “They’ve been boot-packing for two weeks, putting in long, hard days,” Burkley said of the troops who march up Highland Bowl in exchange for a pass. “And we started track-packing last week, so the snow is really getting pinned down for a good base. Now, the snowguns are going full-speed. “It’s really busting up there.” So what’s an anxious skier or boarder to do in the coming days and weeks? “Pick up your pass; tune your skis; dig out your gloves — you’re going to want to be ready when we say we’re opening the mountain tomorrow,” Hanle advised.

JAYNE GOTTLIEB MOVES BACK TO ‘42ND STREET’ WHEN JAYNE GOTTLIEB decided to present the musical “42nd Street” this year, she figured she knew exactly how to build the show. Her Jayne Gottlieb Productions, a midvalley children’s theater company, was launched eight years ago with a production of “42nd Street.”

THE INFO Jayne Gottlieb Productions, with director Gottlieb, presents the musical “42nd Street” Friday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10, at PAC3 in Carbondale.

But Gottlieb has found that doing “42nd Street” in 2013 is not exactly the same as it was in 2005. “At first I thought, ‘Hey, I’m redoing this show, it’ll be no problem,’” said Gottlieb, who will direct the latest version of the musical Friday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10, at PAC3 in Carbondale. “But it’s more like doing this show for the first time, in every aspect.” It was a younger cast in the earlier production; the kids ranged from 6-13 then, and the latest performance is for actors from 7-17. Due to a shortage of male actors, Gottlieb turned one of the lead roles, of the notorious Broadway director Julian Marsh, into a woman. The kissing scenes were removed. Over eight years and 35 shows, Jayne Gottlieb Productions and its participants have created an institutional momentum resulting in more knowledgeable performers. “What the kids are capable of, the dance steps, it’s at a whole different level,” Gottlieb said. “There are a lot of kids who have been with me awhile.” The earlier show, at the Basalt Middle

School, was bare-bones. “We had no sets. None. We had a backdrop,” Gottlieb said. “Now we have platforms and scenery that establishes things — you know where you are. Not that this show needs a lot of staging. But on the production level, it’s so far beyond when I started.” Technology beyond the world of Roaring Fork Valley theater has advanced too, and this has made a difference. Eight years ago, searching for the look of 1930s New York, the setting of “42nd Street,” could be difficult. In YouTube, Gottlieb now has Depression-era Manhattan at her fingertips, and she is confident in going for a specific take on the period. “It will be very 1930s and very stylized. It will stand out as fresh for PAC3,” she said. Also over the past eight years, the “42nd Street” look has seen a revival. “The ’30s and ’40s are so hip now,

fashion-wise,” Gottlieb said. “It’s fun to go with that style.” Possibly what has changed the most since 2005, though, is Gottlieb herself. When Jayne Gottlieb Productions debuted, its leader was 26 and her ears still rang with the advice from Marilyn Izdebski, the director of a northern California theater group, and Gottlieb’s mentor. Izdebski had a certain approach to running a company — “She had a whistle,” Gottlieb notes — which Gottlieb adopted in part. “I was a lot stricter, a lot harsher in my approach,” she said of her earlier self. (She points out that she never took to a whistle: “I did think about it.”) “Now I’m not freaking out that it’s not going to happen. It’s their experience, not mine, not my ego and creating the perfect show. It’s become a lot more naturally collaborative.” The less-demanding tone, however, does not translate into lower standards. From the beginning, Gottlieb’s shows have been impressive for smalltown children’s theater productions. Rehearsal schedules are still taxing, and Gottlieb expects the participants to show up more as actors than as kids. “I still have high expectations. I push the kids to meet me at their best, at the tipping point,” she said. “But I inspire that out of them now, rather than demanding it. And the quality of the dancing and acting has gotten better as I’ve gotten softer.” The simple experience of staging 35 shows in seven years — including “The Sound of Music” in Basalt’s Arbaney Park; a very grown-up “A Chorus Line” on Fanny Hill in Snowmass; a highflying “Peter Pan” and a holiday-season “White Christmas” at the Wheeler Opera House — has been a factor in Gottlieb’s transformation. She also credits her yoga training. A year ago she opened her studio, Le Cercle, in downtown Basalt. “The yoga training has so affected how I teach theater,” she said. “I hope I’ve adopted some of the philosophies in my lifestyle, and I think that influences the kindness and efficiency of the rehearsal process.” She has borrowed some techniques directly from yoga. Rehearsals now typically end with the actors in a circle, chanting one word that summarizes the feeling

in the group. Gottlieb also encourages hugging — either a best friend, or someone they’d had negative thoughts about. “It’s a pretty honest environment these days,” she said. The yoga practice has had the effect of curtailing Jayne Gottlieb Productions’ prolific nature. The schedule of as many as seven shows a year has been cut dramatically; Gottlieb now focuses on one show a year. While she still trains actors with the expectation that some of them will carry on with stage careers, as many past performers have, Gottlieb now believes her original goal of a yearround training company was overly ambitious given the size of the Roaring Fork Valley. “It’s becoming so much a love of mine, instead of a business,” she said of Jayne Gottlieb Productions. “That’s a big transition.” Paring down the performance schedule has affected the nature of that annual show. Gottlieb now sees each show as a big, splashy community event, with loads of dancing. (Gottlieb specializes in dance herself, and for “42nd Street,” she has brought in a co-choreographer, Quincy Gray, who is adding a hip-hop flavor to the movement.) “Less is more. I’m coming around to that,” Gottlieb said. “42nd Street,” it turns out, is an ideal selection given Gottlieb’s current priorities. With its feel-good story, it works as a community event. And it fits well with her desire to emphasize dance. But “42nd Street” — which tells the iconic Broadway story of a small-town girl, Peggy (played by Beth Fawley), arriving in New York and making her way into a starring role despite the presence of an aged prima donna, Dorothy (Jessie Rathbun) and a tough director, Julian (Raam Weinfield) — seems custom-made for any circumstances. “It’s the quintessential Broadway musical,” Gottlieb said. “It’s very simple compared with what’s been on Broadway the last few years. It’s not layered; it’s not complicated. If you want to be removed from your life and just be entertained — which is where we all started with theater, to take us out of our own lives — this is the show.”

BOOK REVIEW

‘COWBOYS AND EAST INDIANS’ IN HER CAPTIVATING debut story collection, Casper-raised author Nina McConigley examines with wit and empathy what it means to be “the wrong kind of Indians living in Wyoming.” Although prejudice and ignorance surface, there are few bad guys in this game of cowboys and Indians, only complicated human beings. The characters in “Cowboys and East Indians” must explain themselves frequently — they are never quite what those who encounter them expect. In the story “Dot or Feather,” a foreign exchange student from India tells a Wyoming kid dressed up as a Native American, “There are two kinds of Indians. Some wear dots, others wear feathers. You’re a feather Indian. I wear a dot.” A gnawing sense of never-belonging troubles many of McConigley’s characters. In the title story, “Faith Henderson,” a “dot Indian” adopted by BRENDAN EMMETT QUIGLEY | edited by WILL SHORTZ

at age 2, remembers how she and an Arapaho classmate, the only other non-white student at her school, took turns portraying Mary “in various school Christmas pageants, since Mary was Middle Eastern.” While attending college in Laramie, Faith tries to befriend a group of East Indian graduate students, hoping they will invite her to share their lives and culture. Instead, they take advantage of her, asking her to drive them places in her minivan. In the delightful, surprising “Pomp and Circumstances,” Chitra is an Indian immigrant whose husband’s job brings them to Casper. At an office Christmas party, she tells an anecdote about a “hijra,” a traditional Indian transvestite, and soon her husband’s boss, Richard Larson, invites her for tea with his wife. While there, Richard asks if she can help him try on a sari, and introduces Chitra to his elaborate cross-dressing wardrobe

hidden in his gun locker. A weird and wonderful secret understanding develops between the three people. “It is unspoken between them,” McConigley writes. “This kind of thing can get you killed in Wyoming.” But despite Wyoming’s harsh social rules, abundant oil derricks, and scrappy towns that aren’t “the West people were expecting,” the characters in “Cowboys and East Indians” love their state, and its wildlife and landscape color the way they experience the world. These people are as skinny as a “lodgepole pine” or as unpredictable as a prairie dog poised on the edge of the highway — and they belong to Wyoming. As in all great fiction, McConigley has delved into the particular and emerged with genuine stories that touch the universal.
