For further information please contact Marci Maullar at marcima@ksu. edu or 785-532-6878.

K-STATE’S EBONY THEATRE TO PRESENT “JAR THE FLOOR” MANHATTAN, KS.- K-State’s Ebony Theatre will present the play “Jar The Floor” by Cheryl L. West February 28-March 2 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee Sunday March 3rd at 2:30 p.m. in The Purple Masque Theatre. A quartet of black women span-

O

New York Magazine called the play, “a moving and hilarious account of a black family sparring in a Chicago suburb.” “A fresh, spirited evening…genuinely moving,” writes The Washington Post. Libby Uthoff, graduate student in directing, will direct “Jar The Floor.”; costume design is by Marci Maullar, associate professor of theatre; sound design is by Dylan Rogerson, undergraduate in theatre; lighting design is by Kat Wilson, undergraduate in personal financial planning. Tickets are $8 for the general public, seniors and military, and $5 for students. They can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by calling McCain at 785-532-6428.

WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD APHRODISIACS, EXPERT SAYS LOOK FOR NUTRITION AT FIRST BITE RATHER THAN LOVE MANHATTAN -- It's been said that food is the language of love. If so, can certain foods -- or aphrodisiacs -- promote romantic feelings or sexual desire? Probably not, according to a Kansas State University nutrition expert and registered dietitian.

"The aphrodisiac effects of certain foods seem to be based on placebo effect more than anything," Yarrow said. But while food aphrodisiacs may not boost your love life, some of them have a lot to love from a nutritional standpoint, Yarrow said. These include: * Chocolate, one of the most popular Valentine's Day gifts. A growing number of studies indicate chocolate can be good for your heart, Yarrow said. Chocolate is made from the cocoa bean, which contains flavanols. Flavanols have antioxidant effects that can reduce damage to cells and increase vascular function. Both of these can reduce risk for heart disease. "Flavanols are present in higher amounts in dark chocolate, so choose dark chocolate with a cocoa content of 65 percent or higher," Yarrow said. "But beware. Most chocolate has added fat and sugar that contributes to overall calories." * Oysters, an excellent source of the minerals zinc, iron and calcium. Yarrow said zinc helps maintain a healthy immune system and is important in wound healing. Iron is important for preventing anemia and calcium helps maintain strong bone health. * Eggs, a good source of non-meat protein

for people who choose to limit or avoid meat products. They are also high in choline, riboflavin and vitamin B12. Yarrow said choline is essential for brain development, which improves focus, learning and memory function. Riboflavin is important for energy metabolism, tissue building and vision. Vitamin B12 helps form red blood cells and helps maintain the central nervous system. * Bananas, an excellent source of potassium, which is a mineral important to muscular function. "Potassium may also lower risk for heart disease and reduce blood pressure," Yarrow said. "In addition, bananas are a good source of fiber, which reduces risk of constipation and certain cancers." * Almonds, a non-animal source of protein. The nut is also high in vitamin E, which is an antioxidant and may reduce cancer risk. Yarrow said almonds have minerals such as magnesium, phosphorous and zinc, and are also a good source of fiber. Studies have shown that people who consume nuts can reduce their risk of heart disease, she said. * Avocados, a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin E and folic acid. "Avocados are best known as a source of monounsaturated fats in the diet," Yarrow said. "Monounsaturated fats can reduce risk for heart disease when they replace sources of saturated fat in the diet." * Figs, which are a good source of calcium -- for healthy bones and teeth -- and can provide fiber, which can lower the risk of certain cancers. Yarrow said figs are high in antioxidants and may reduce risk for heart disease. They are also a good source of iron, which is important for preventing anemia. "But use caution. Figs have a laxative effect and should be consumed in moderation," she said.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, SuzanLori Parks will present a talk-performance in Forum Hall in the K-State student union on February 19th at 7 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public. On February 20th at 3:30 p.m. she will lead a discussion and a question and answer session in Nichols Theatre in Nichols Hall.

go walking “barefoot in the park” a columbian production lovingly picnicked away by

sarah sullivan I will start off by speaking directly to the fellas, if you want to score some excellent points with your lady this Valentine’s Day, take her to see The Columbian Theatre’s production of Barefoot in the Park. In my opinion, Barefoot in the Park is one of Neil Simon’s greatest works. It’s the tale not often told of what happens after the “Happily Ever After” or the “Till Death Do Us Part”. The newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter, have just moved into a five story walk-up in New York after six glorious honeymoon days at the Plaza.

Visit Mojo’s for booking and details

They are about to start their new life... on the fifth floor, up six flights of stairs (if you count the front stoop which climbs like a flight). They have rented the tiny one room apartment for twice what it is worth and Corie’s enthusiasm isn’t quite enough to make the apartment’s hideous paint, lack of space and lack of furniture palatable

to the straight-laced Paul. Set in the 1960’s, Corie Bratter is more than a little unusual for a house wife. She’s full of life and ready to try anything whereas Paul is practical and so grounded that he sometimes acts like an actual anchor on his vivacious wife. Despite their single bed, the hole in the sky-light and their new neighbor who lives in 6A on the roof and has to climb through their bedroom window to get to his apartment, the couple must find a way to keep their marriage alive and stay together.

It was refreshing to see such an

period that matched the mood of the show and the ability to perfectly understand all the lines. Along with following the time period and the mood of the show, the costuming was bang on course. It was not pointedly 1960’s in its design but it saluted the time period and matched the portrayal of the characters perfectly. Corie, played by the incomparable Diana Watts is fun-loving, hip and a little unorthodox which is exactly what her clothing says. Paul, the young lawyer, played perfectly by Mark Young, is concerned with appearance but lacks the funds to make it a hobby. His suit is his character to a tea, right down to his ties which he stores in his law books to keep them pressed. Corie’s mother, played by the lovely Christy Collette, is dressed as a well-to-do lady from New Jersey which gives her the added benefit of clashing with her daughter’s appearance, accenting their differences in personality and making her look more fit to be Paul’s mother which was an excellent point of the script that the director, Ginny Pape, brought out in the character’s relationships. Corrie on the other hand, is more aligned with the eccentric upstairs neighbor Victor Velasco, played by the one and only Kim Riley. Victor Velasco is a character that could be from any number of countries with an accent that is not easily recognizable, a clothing style that could be Asian or Peruvian, a food palette that is eastern European and a living style that is Bohemian. You could not ask for a better cast in this production. Ginny Pape has assembled an amazing group from the telephone and delivery men to the quartet of core actors who were per-

FEBRUARY 14, 2013

This same attention to detail is prevalent in every area of this production. There are also lots of sound cues in the show; phones ringing, doors slamming, people stomping up the stairs, etc. and though sometimes there are some unavoidable bloopers in live shows that require sound clips, they were so perfectly timed in this show that the actors didn’t even have to break the pacing or pause for the cues. This was a continuous theme with well chosen music from the time

WWW.THEHYPEWEEKLY.COM

excellent set for the show. Set at the edge of the stage, the audience actually feels like they are sitting on the edge of the tiny room where all the action takes place. The miniscule kitchen is sadly even smaller than most college students’ first stodgy apartments. The skylight, that is the point of so much hilarity in the show is also an excellent addition to the set that is built in a forced perspective that is functional and easy for the audience to view the scenes taking place above the room. The split level floor plan was a perfect design for this particular show as so much is said by the actor’s expressions which by occurring on two levels gives the audience a less claustrophobic view of the scene. As all three acts of this show were meant to occur in a single room, a lot of the auxiliary action takes place off stage. To make this happen, the flats (set walls, doors, etc) had to be thin enough for the actors to make themselves heard through, and around. In fact, one of the most important speeches is given by Corie through the bathroom door to Paul. The actors do an excellent job of projecting but the sets were also carefully designed to look solid but be thin enough to be clearly heard through.

fectly suited to their parts. In all the times I’ve seen this show performed, I have to say that I have never seen a more complementing bunch with the talent and reserve it takes to really put this show on with a fresh face so even people who’ve seen it done dozens of time can get something new from it. To see Victor and Corie’s mother’s interactions paralleled with Paul and Corie’s relationship is the true essence of this production. Sometimes you need to just kick off your shoes and go walking barefoot in the park in 17 degree weather.

THIS WEEK IN MHK...

salute to swinging guys and dolls love to 2nd annual dance-a-thon attendies painstakingly organized by sarah sullivan photos by Terry Szel and Erica Larson A Salute to the Swingin’ Guys and Dolls! To everyone who came out on February 2nd and made the 2nd Annual Hype Weekly Dance-a-thon a success, we would like to give you a special thanks. This was our second attempt to raise money for the Manhattan Emergency Center as well as the Wamego Senior Center this year. I’m happy to report that we raised $355 which after paying our expenses will allow us to give $150 to each organization! This is three times more than we raised last year and we were so excited to have about three times as many participants and guests. We give most of the credit to the amazing Phaetons, the best Rockabilly band this side of the 1940s! They kept the good times rolling and played everything from Johnny Cash to the best cover of Woody Herman’s “Must be Jelly Cause Jam Don’t Shake Like That” that you would ever hear.

These gents were willing to play for way less than they are worth all for the charity and we can’t thank them enough for giving us a night to remember. All the credit for getting to have this event goes to our biggest sponsors; The Columbian Theatre and Auntie Mae’s Parlor, especially MaryBeth and Clint at The Columbian and Jeff Denney at Auntie Mae’s. To us, the three of you represent the best this community has to offer. You give so much to help. You give your time, space and money and without you, The Hype Weekly’s 2nd Annual Danceathon would have been no more than a dream. We were also fortunate enough to be able to give away some of the best door prizes I’ve ever seen. These prizes were completely donated, making no overhead for us and allowing us to give as much of the funds to the Emergency Center and the Senior Center as possible. First, to Local for their AMAZING looking cupcakes which were an enormous hit. To Coco Bolos and Rock-A-Belly for their excellent coupons for fine dining appetizers and entrees which had people hopping in their seats hoping their tickets would be the ones to get these tasty prizes. Also, to the Manhattan Arts Center for donating four complimentary tickets to ANY MAC show. I can’t lie, I was a bit jealous of those winners. This goes the same for our lovely Sisters of Sound prize made up of some of the finest Swing vinyl and CDs ever recorded, all carefully picked out and put together by our very own Sarah Sue and Leah Cunnick. Thank you all for you amazing donations. We are so lucky to be a part of the same community you all are. In the dance competitions, we gave prizes in

four categories. First, the Swingin’ Cats Dance Champions award went to the most enthusiastic dancing couple. This award went to Anna Crane and Nathanael Grieco, the couple who named their duo “Bonnie and Clyde”. Oddly enough our second category called the Bonnie and Clyde award was for the best dressed couple which went to the duo The Legumes made up of Betsy Baddeley and Nathan Bean. The artwork on their award was done by Keegan D. Hudspeth, artist extraordinaire. Our third category was for our most adorable slow dancing couple who know each other so well, they could have danced without music. This award went to Bob Pfannenstiel and his lovely date who remained anonymous. Finally, our Johnny B. Goode award for the best solo dancer- male or female went to the mystery woman who came with friends and wasn’t planning on dancing but once the bartenders at The Columbian got a hold of her, she was shaking it all night long. Again, we’d like to thank everyone for coming out for the show and competing or

just coming and having a good time! Stay tuned for updates on The Hype Weekly’s March fundraiser: The 8-Bit (and 16bit) video games tournament benefitting Child’s Play, a charity that buys books and games for children with terminal diseases which keep them in hospitals for most of their lives. Thank you again for all you do for your community and for believing in The Hype!

hype The seventh annual KSU Drag Show was my first drag show, and it was everything I expected; performance, costumes, glitz, and glamour. What I didn’t expect was the new perspective I would walk away with. Being a drag queen, both physically and emotionally, involves a great deal of commitment, talent, creativity, but above all else it requires love. Love for yourself, your peers, and most of all, for your community. But these ladies know how to have fun too. Host Monica Moree was as inspiring as she was entertaining, bringing the audience to a roaring cheer and uncontrollable laughter with the wave of a hand or the occasional flash of a middle finger. I spent Friday night in awe and wonder, being mesmerized by every number, outfit change, sequin, each performer had to offer, but early Saturday afternoon, I caught a glimpse of what things are like behind the curtains. Until that point I had only seen the sparkle and shuffle of heels in the gap formed between the end of the black stage curtains and the stage itself. Luckily my liaison to the Queen community, my friend Jakki Thompson, was there to point me in the right direction. I began to realize

k-state drag show an unforgettable night out shaken out and stirred in by demetra Kopulos photos by Terry Szel and Erica Larson this year’s drag show not only contained new experiences for me, but for everyone involved. “Last night, at the very end of the show after probably about half the audience had left there were still probably a good 15 to 20 men who self-identified as heterosexual. Last year there were two. That speaks volumes about where the community has gone as a whole. I think that work is incredible because it is impossible for any minority to gain any kind of equality and fairness without the support of allies that don’t identify as that minority. So whether it’s gay people or race or women any minority is going to have to deal with that. So the fact that’s happening is pretty profound and I’m excited about it,” said Dusty Garner, who performs as Monica Moree. Garner is a proud Kansas State alumnus, and is currently working on his Master’s degree in Justice Studies at Arizona State University. “They are making strides obviously things are fragile for every step we take forward we could one day wake up and find that we are two steps back.

I would like the community to become more politically involved. It was not even two years ago that Manhattan passed one of the most comprehensive LGBT protection ordinances and then to have it revoked based on religious aspects disguised as economics.” Garner refers to the 2010 Human Rights ordinance that the currently City Commission repealed as its first order of business upon being elected. Many expect the ordinance to surface as an issue in the current race for the three open City Commission spots. However, voter turnout from the progressive community is often poor in Manhattan. Garner had a perspective on this too, “A lot of times what can happen is students forget they have the right to vote locally and not just the right, the responsibility to do it. Not even just about gay issues, but the apartment inspections that apartment gig is a big deal peoples’ lives are at stake and we’ve eliminated that and repealed that in spite of the fact that their inspections revealed limitless amounts of infractions. It

will take a fire and someone to die because they couldn’t open their window or get out to the fire escape. It will take that to happen before somebody will finally pay attention and say “Oh maybe we really should be paying attention to this”, where if we can get people to be involved in their local communities and take action that would change,” said Garner. This year Garner arrived in Manhattan early because he had been asked to do a few speaking engagements. Not only had he been asked to speak to a Sociology class about the drag community, Delta Sigma Phi fraternity asked him to speak at formal dinner. Their chapter advisor, Ben Hopper, reached out to Garner as part of the fraternity’s lecture series, “Better men, Better Lives”. “Essentially we have prominent leaders speak to the chapter about anything that would better the house,” said member Chris Kellenbarger who is a junior majoring in Business management with a minor in leadership studies. “It was very interesting as an openly gay man on campus and in the chapter I can relate to what Dusty had to say, we’re one of the most accepting chapters on campus but you can always do things better,” said Kellenbarger. I was extremely impressed that Delta Sigma Phi took that type of initiative. I began to think about all of the progress that could be made if more organizations on and off campus took the time to get to learn about minority groups. Hopefully in the coming

years more and more organizations will step up and reach out to the drag community like these have. In the meantime, the show continues to be a smashing success selling

out both nights in advance. Perhaps the most touching part of the show came Saturday night as a seven year old boy took the stage with Monica Moree, she liked him so much, she and the audience taught him an important drag lesson: how to make it rain. It was more than just the cute factor of seven-year-old, Sevi, that pulled at the audience’s emotions. It was the reality that someone so small and so young was making bigger strides in understanding and acceptance than most adults. Sevi definitely enjoyed himself and proved to be an impressive audience member, making sure to run up, tip, and hug every queen during her performance. We all could learn a lot from Sevi, and not just about being a good tipper. Being exposed to different forms of culture so young gives not only Sevi, but also most children a better chance at growing up and being more accepting and making a difference in society. The most emotional performance was without a doubt Garner’s closer each night of, “What Makes a Man, a Man”. Garner begins as Moree in full drag attire, and slowly peels off the layers of clothing and makeup as the music accompanies, challenging the audience’s perception of gender further. By the end of the number Garner is make-up-

less and in jeans and a Delta Lambda Phi shirt, supporting the fraternity he attended while at Kansas State. It is a visually stunning challenge of gender roles that wraps up the evening perfectly. Going to this year’s drag show changed my perspective for the better. I had a great time watching local performers, Patti O’Dour, Tywoo, Victoria Fox, and Lil Kimchi, all members of the fabulous Hot, Sticky, and Sweet. Along with out of town guest stars, Monica St.James, Chelsea Pearl, from Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Penny Tration, Celia Putty, and Miss Gay Ohio USofA 2013 Leah Halsten. Halsten was the product of another K-State drag show first when she received a standing ovation both nights for her performance of Beyonce’s number at the Super bowl halftime show. Each performer impressed and in my opinion put on better shows than most of the artists they lip sank to, and were far more entertaining. I have great respect for SOCS, Student Organization for Cultural Studies, for producing, volunteering and helping make the show the smashing success it was. As stated by Monica Moree, president of SOCS and senior Melissa Prescott will definitely be missed next year. There’s no doubt someone just as passionate and qualified will fill her shoes and take

charge, though. After my first drag show...I understand how the Queens bring communities together through laughter, love, and lip-syncing.

red velvet crush

a KC BAND worth bragging about praise and admiration by demetra Kopulos If you consider yourself someone that catches on to rising stars before the rest of the world, then get familiar with Red Velvet Crush. One listen to their song, “Beautiful Mess” on their ReverbNation page and you will be counting down the days to their EP release. Beautiful Mess shows off Riscoe’s beautifully raw vocal talents with very little instrumentals, besides acoustic guitar. This isn’t your sad love song acoustics, Mendala keeps the energy up and his talent compliments Riscoe’s perfectly. Riscoe and Mendala write their own tracks, and although beautiful mess is about being you, it’s no pop ballad aimed at teenagers to raise their self-esteem. They keep their lyrics real and write about personal experiences. This track embodies the intrigue needed to hook listeners on a first whim and leave them wanting more. In a time where everyone wants to be famous, and lip syncing is custom, you rarely find the raw talent that Jillian Riscoe, vocals, and Daniel Mendala, guitar, possess, along with a mission statement they live out, turning dreams into realities. “Being in a band is definitely not the normal thing to do and not an easy thing to do but if you

want something like this especially in music you just have to work really hard, not give up, do everything you can, practice all the time, just put yourself out there and go do it,” said Riscoe. The two have over a year of experience touring various parts of Kansas and beyond, but decided to head south to record their EP. “We kind of were looking at different people in Kansas City and we decided we couldn’t really find anybody in particular that we wanted to work with on a project like this. There’s a certain quality and a certain kind of vibe for the music we’ve been working on,” said Riscoe. All of their hard work in the past year has paid off. Their three nominations for best acoustic performance, female vocalist, and new artist of the year for the Project Backstage Midwest Rock Awards 2013 are well deserved and just a part of the thrilling year ahead for the group. 2013 has been a defining year Riscoe and Mendala, who are currently working on their EP, set to release in April, with producer Dave Percefull of yellow DOG Studios in Austin, TX. “When Dave reached out to us at Yellow Dog and talked about working with us and every-

thing we were all for it just because of the level, quality, the great production and song writing that goes into it. He’s worked with people like Green Day, David Cook, Bowling for Soup, and The Nixons so he has a long line of great clients, we just wanted to make sure that we have a lot of good stuff to show people and we thought Dave was the perfect guy to go to, to help us”, said Riscoe. For this EP, they will be recording with a live band, which is a first for the duo who’s been acoustic thus far. “Acoustic versus full band are both their own great experience. One is just more intimate and vulnerable and the other one’s more full production and an experience. The past year we’ve been really lucky to have our fans really see who we are as a group and now everything’s fully coming to life and into the bloom,” said Riscoe. Once the EP drops in April, Red Velvet Crush will set out to tour the summer and beyond including a release party April 27, at Record Bar, in Kansas City, Missouri. Don’t however expect the same performance from Red Vel-

vet Crush this time around; the group has been working hard on producing some new shows. “Were working on several different stage shows and you know what’s going to be appropriate for each venue and each tour we theme out everything, we always have different themes and ideas and production for each type of show and it’s all specific to what city or what show we have and we plan all that stuff out. Daniel and I are really into giving shows a theme,” said Riscoe The group is currently heading back to Austin to record, work on track listing, stage shows, and everything in between. For those who went to their performance at Aggiefest this past year, fear not, they will be once again gracing Manhattan with their presence for a release party the first week of May. I have been following this duo for a while now and their progress in just a year is impressive to put it mildly. In a time when it’s no longer necessary to have talent to be successful, it’s refreshing to find a group with all the potential in the world and watch where that takes them.
