The Moonlite Bunny Ranch - the brothel that has given us the Jesse Ventura "Oral Office" suite
named in honor of the Minnesota governor is opening a theme room in honor of the late comedian
The Ventura suite was originally going to ballyhoo his stint as a Navy seal - since it was during
those days that Ventura admitted to being a visitor at the brothel located in Lyon County, just
outside Carson City. However, the Navy took a dim view of the decorating theme, so the motif
took on an "Oral Office" concept as well as displaying memorabilia denoting Ventura's days
as a wrestler.
The wrestling theme will also be carried out in the Kaufman bedroom. It seems that the actor
"used to hire two girls, one in a black leopard, the other in white. Kaufman would pay $350 to
$400 per match. They'd wrestle each other and then he'd wrestle the winner," divulged brothel
owner Dennis Hof, who insisted that Kaufman never engaged in sexual activity with either of
them. He just got his kicks by wrestling. "He'd spent thousands of dollars in a weekend. A lot of
people are sexually repressed. Wrestling women is a fantasy for some men. It's a way to satisfy
their desires," he continued.
Kaufman is the subject of the hit movie Man on the Moon. His brothel wrestling events
took place during the time he starred on Saturday Night Live. On that show he'd offer
$1,000 to any woman who could beat him in a wrestling match.
Kaufman's sexual antics at various Nevada brothels have been well documented. In 1979, while in
Nevada for a week, he decided to have sex with every prostitute in one brothel, paying $100 per
girl - twice the then going rate. He bedded 49 prostitutes in those seven days.
SUNDANCE - LOOKING FOR
DISTRIBUTORS AND ROBERT REDFORD
Robert Redford was a no show at the opening night of his Sundance Film Festival. Nobody was
too sure what happened to Bob, who was away finishing up his next directing effort, The
Legend of Bagger Vance. He had been expected to not only attend but deliver opening
remarks. Somebody goofed and neglected to inform the Festival that - at the last second- Bob
wasn't going to make it. He did arrive the next day, attending a brunch at the Sundance Resort
where 19 films will be screened. Jodi Foster is also at the Festival.
Also missing, but with a good reason, was Stanley Tucci. He was attempting to get to Utah for
the world premiere of his movie Joe Gould's Secret. He flew from Rome to Los Angeles
and was ready to board a flight for Park City, Utah when he got word that his pregnant wife -
expecting twins - had gone into labor a month early in New York. Tucci immediately flew to his
wife's bedside. We wish them all the best.
As for Sundance - that's the premiere Festival for independent films looking for distributors. Last
year the event gave the world The Blair Witch Project.
This year the opening night film was What's Cooking, set at Thanksgiving. Gurinder
Chadha, an Englishwoman of Indian descent co-wrote and directed the film. Along with two of
the film's stars, Alfre Woodward and Julianna Margulies, Chadha introduced it at the
What's Cooking takes the traditional Thanksgiving dinner viewed through the eyes of four
families.The Williamses - Ronald (Dennis Haysbert) and Audrey (Alfre Woodard) - are an
African-American couple trying to live a WASP lifestyle. The children of a Mexican-American
family, the Avilas, (Julianna Margulies) are trying to get their fighting parents back together. The
Seeligs (Lainie Kazan and Maury Chaykin) are attempting to cope with the fact that their
daughter (Kyra Sedgwick) is a lesbian, And Vietnamese immigrants the Nguyens (Joan Chen and
Francois Chau) are faced with rebellious children.
During the 10-day the Sundance Film Festival will screen 112 feature films, 71 of them making
their world premiere.
On Tuesday Kevin Spacey will be honored with the festival's Piper-Heidsieck Tribute to
Independent Vision Award. Spacey's next project will find him in Las Vegas. His next flick
Pay It Forward will be filming in Las Vegas.

NOTRE DAME DE PARIS; PARIS
HOTEL, LAS VEGAS
This isn't your father's Hunchback of Notre Dame. In fact, the program says this award
winning highly touted musical is "based on the novel by Victor Hugo."
There is a program which explains every scene. That's a good thing, because unless you read the
program before the performance you're going to get lost. Even so, be prepared for
If Rent was your all time favorite Broadway musical, then Notre Dame De Paris is
right up your alley. And, you're going to have to see it in Las Vegas, because this isn't going to
make it to Broadway. The music is recorded. Beautifully composed, arranged and exquisitely
balanced - but recorded. The musician's unions in Paris and Toronto have lodged charges. Las
Vegas has several hotels that use canned notes, making Notre Dame De Paris mountable
in Vegas without the litigation.
FRANCIS RUIVIVAR plays Frollo. He starred on
Broadway in Miss Saigon, becoming the first Asian-American to portray the Engineer,
replacing Jonathan Pryce. He originated the role of Lord Toranaga in
If you are a dance major, or have a deep appreciation for acrobatic dancing, then you're going to
marvel at the highly trained dancers - many of whom should be getting hazard pay.
Those who rank Andrew Lloyd Webber's Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera
at the top of their personal preference list won't know what to make of this show. There are no
elaborate period costumes. Think sweats, karate outfits, The Gap and anything that might be
roaming around a high school hallway.
The set - singular - is your basic rock climbing wall from the gym, cut into sections and made
moveable. The lighting effects are excellent and the choreography inspired. The bell ringing scene
being a highpoint. What this show has is enormous talent taken straight from Broadway.
DOUG STORM is Quasimodo. He comes directly
from the Broadway cast of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Credits include Les Miserables, The
Civil War, Terrance Mann's Romeo & Juliet, Chess and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Bringing that combination to Glitzville is taking quite a gamble - six the hard way.
Chicago the award winning musical, has triumphed in Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort
because the household name cast is regularly changed. It's a pleasure to see Chicago more
Notre Dame De Paris has no marquee names. It's been a sell out in Toronto - one of the
world's greatest theatre cities. The fact that it's been a smash in Paris is a given. This is its first
engagement in English. Something may have been lost in the translation - like character
development. There are no supporting cast comic relief roles. Even all the cast members look
about the same - young. We have a Paris only inhabited by the 25 or younger crowd. There are no
songs delivered in a stand out, memorable fashion. When Dr. Jekyll sings This Is The
Moment in Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde the house comes down. When Quasimodo
sang God You Made The World All Wrong, referring to the pain of his affliction, the audience
responded with polite applause.
The audience never really develops any empathy - or hatred - for any character or situation. The
audience needs to feel something besides puzzlement. The opening night audience appreciation
went to the acrobatic skill of the dancers and in acknowledgment of the great singing ability of the
DAVID JENNINGS plays Clopin. His many Broadway
credits include in Ragtime, Miss Saigon, Godspell, Play On, Once Upon A Mattress, Ain't
Misbehavin and Guys & Dolls.
The first show - Saturday - opening night was a heavily papered house. The couples in front of
me and to my right were from Canada and friends of the producer. Many in the audience had
connections with the production. Even so, the response was tepid although there was a standing
ovation at the end. I overheard many Canadians indicate they preferred the Canadian production,
which we haven't seen.
Las Vegas has a large contingent of Oriental and Spanish tourists with English as a second
language, who may not be able to follow the show and won't enjoy it unless they are crazy about
interpretative dance. To make this show succeed will be an interesting challenge. The showroom
of the Paris Hotel seats about 1200. There are two shows a night 7:30p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
Tuesdays through Saturdays, with two separate casts. That's a lot of tickets - at $69.50 - for an
avant guard production with crib notes and no intermission to try to sell - week after week, month
Leaving the theater there was a couple behind me - age approximately 50. The man said to his
wife: "There were some great voices up there on that stage. And, yes it was a musical. But, to
tell you the truth I'd rather have seen Tony Bennett."
It took a lot of innovative thinking and courage to mount Notre Dame De Paris in Las
Vegas. There is a lot of talent up on the stage. That may not be enough.
JERRY HERMAN LEADS THEATER
PANEL; SCHOLARSHIP FORMED IN HIS NAME
Jerry Herman, composer of Mame, Hello Dolly! La Cage Aux Folles among other
Broadway hits, was the featured guest artist in the three day Utah Theatre Association
Conference, which ended last night, at Dixie College, St. George, Utah.
The conference theme was "The Best of Times" taken from the lyrics of the stand out song from
La Cage Aux Folles. Proceeds from a concert which culminated the three day conference
will be used to establish a scholarship in Herman's name.
Panel participants included Herman, Paige O'Hara, Karen Morrow, Jason Graae and Don
O'Hara, who sang the role of Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, appeared on
Broadway as Fantine in Les Miserables and performed in the national tour of The
Mystery of Edwin Droos and the Broadway revival of Showboat before moving to
Las Vegas where she starred in the Rockettes show at the Flamingo Hilton Hotel.
Graae is currently featured as Chad in the Showtime series RudeAwakening and
performed as Houdini at the Shubert Theater in the Los Angeles production of Ragtime.
Karen Morrow has appeared on Broadway in The Grass Harp,If I Had a Ball and
The Selling of the President and off Broadway in The Boys from Syracuse.
Musical director Don Pippen rounded out the panel. In addition to being musical director for
many of Herman's works, he has had a distinguished career that includes A Chorus Line,Woman of the Year, and Cabaret. He was the first musical director to receive to
receive the Drama Desk Award "for consistently outstanding musical direction and commitment
to the theater."
The discussion and question and answer period focused on the professional musical
Keynote speaker for the conference was James Christian, Weber State University's director of
theater studies. He also conduced a series of workshops which culminated in a cabaret
performance showcasing the students who participated in the sessions.
College from Utah, Idaho, Colorado and Nevada took part in the conference. The Utah Theatre
Association is a coalition of representatives from public education, higher education and
community theaters throughout Utah. The major aspect of the conference is giving high school
seniors the opportunity to audition for college and university scholarships.
Tony award winning Herman is the only composer/lyricist in history to have had three musicals
running more than 1,500 consecutive performances on Broadway. Among his other
accomplishments are Dear World, Milk and Honey, Mack and Mabel, and Jerry's
Girls, a revue showcasing highlights from his previous hits. His newest show will be Miss
Spectacular,opening next year at the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas.
LAS VEGAS WEALTH
BENEFITS PERFORMING ARTS STUDENTS
Juilliard, Yale and Columbia are about to get some competition from
Thanks to a gift of $18 million from the estate of a guy who got lucky buying undeveloped Las
Vegas real estate, the College of Fine Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln intends to jump
to the top of the pecking order for fine arts-theatre training institutions.
Christina M. Hixson, the sole trustee of the Lied Foundation Trust announced last week that the
latest bequest by the Lied Foundation Trust, Las Vegas is an $18 million grant to the University
of Nebraska, Lincoln College of Fine and Performing Arts. "This has the potential of moving this
college literally to the top of the performing arts training institutions in this country," announced
college dean Richard Durst.
"We are exceedingly grateful for the generosity Christina Hixson has shown to the college,"
continued Durst. "Since the college was founded in 1993, we have striven to offer an outstanding
education in art, art history, theatre, dance and music. This wonderful gift will create an even
more effective learning environment, continuing the highest professional standards in fine and
performing arts education. It will enable this college to take a place at the pinnacle on fine arts
DANCE DEPARTMENT IN THE HIXSON-LIED
COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS
Part of the money will be used to compete with the top college fine arts departments in recruiting
both faculty and students.
The University Board of Regents also voted 8-0 to rename the college in honor of the Lied
Foundation and the sole trustee, Christina Hixson. The college will be called the Hixson-Lied
College of Fine and Performing Arts. In the 131-year history of the University of Nebraska, this
marks the first time a college will bear the name of a supporter.
The late Ernest F. Lied was a University of Nebraska graduate - class of 1927 - who became the
owner of a growing Buick dealership in Omaha. Lied hired Hixson as his secretary. The two
worked together in Omaha until the 1950s, when Lied moved to Las Vegas and began investing in
underdeveloped land purchased at low prices. Those investments grew to extraordinary
proportions. When Hixson joined Lied in Las Vegas as his assistant in 1960, he had already
developed shopping centers, homes and a hotel. As Las Vegas began to expand, the land he
owned continued to increase in value.
Lied established the Lied Foundation Trust in Las Vegas in 1972, in honor of his parents, Ernest
M. And Ida K. Lied. Before his death in 1980 at age 84, Lied named Hixson, his associate for
more than 40 years, as the sole trustee of the trust, and instructed her to sell the acquired land to
benefit the trust.
Proceeds from the Las Vegas land sale resulted in a $133 million trust.
According to reports presented at the regents meeting, the money will be placed in an endowment
fund to generate income for the Fine and Performing Arts College. It is expected to be fully
funded within four years. At that time $900,000 a year is expected. The principal will be
permanently invested as a means of providing the annual income.
THE LIED CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING
Half of the income will go to programs at the college and it's ancillary units including the
Lied Center for the Performing Arts, Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, the Mary Riepma Ross Film
Theater, the Lentz Center for Asian Culture and the Nebraska Repertory Theater.
The other half will be divided equally; 25 percent will fund faculty chairs and professorships to
attract and retain leading national scholars in fine and performing arts. The other 25 percent will
be used for student support, including student scholarships, fellowships, working grants and
Endowing institutions of higher learning has been a staple of the Lied Foundation.
In 1984, the Lied Center was built thanks to a $10 challenge grant from the Lied Foundation.
The Nebraska State Legislature approved fund and individuals jumped on the donation
bandwagon. Construction of the 150,000 square foot, $20 million structure began in October,
1986, completed late in 1989. The Lied Center's premiere season was a tremendous
success with sellout performances by Isaac Stern, the Joffrey Ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra
and the Broadway hit Les Miserables.
Through various projects at the University of Nebraska, Hixson has provided more than
$47million in gifts from the Lied Foundation Trust.
The Christina Hixson Opportunity Awards program was created at Iowa State University when
Hixon gave $5 million from the Lied Foundation Trust of Las Vegas to a program that provides
100 full tuition awards to students from Iowa. One student from each of Iowa's counties is
provided with a $2,500 scholarship each year.
The Lied Foundation didn't forget the city where the wealth was acquired. At the University of
Nevada, Las Vegas there is the Lied Institute for Real Estate Studies. During an anniversary
celebration held last May at the Venetian Hotel, Hixson was honored.
"The Institute is forever grateful to Christian and the Lied Foundation Trust for sharing our vision
of becoming the premier academic real estate program in the Western Unite States," said Larry
Singer, chair of the Lied Institute Advisory Committee.
"In 1992, Christina made the Lied Institute one of her priorities by endowing the program at
UNLV. As the chair of the Lied Institute's Board of Governors, she continues to influence and
steer the program's direction academically, in community outreach and in the wise investment of
the Lied Institute Endowment."
Hixson was also recognized by The Las Vegas Review Journal as Best

Dickinson had been at the forefront of Alzheimer benefits. Her older sister, Mary Lou Belmont,
was diagnosed with the disease in 1985 at the age of 55. At that time the actress pay $80 a day for
nurses to care for her sister. Angie took care of Mary Lou until the disease progressed to the
point that Angie was forced to place her beloved sister in a home. At that time Dickinson
announced that if she ever got the disease she'd kill herself. Then she marshaled her energies to
