Enchanted April has long been considered one
of the best character driven
stories ever penned by a female.
While some might consider this Broadway play a woman's saga, it is so
well acted that men ought to be able to
comprehend the message.
There are no outrageous theatrical effects. The only shots fired are the
emotional ones, muffled inside the women who are struggling
with their reality - the gods have used them in life's game of bait and switch.
The location could be anywhere. This timeless book happens to be set
in England moving to an Italian Villa during the 1920s. Lotty
Wilson and Rose Arnott are two proper, middle-class Englishwomen resigned to their
staid lives and passionless marriages. One day, Lotty sees an advertisement
for the vacation of a lifetime; a month's stay at a
villa overlooking the Italian Riviera.

Lotty and Rose rent the villa. Strapped for money they
decide to share expenses with two additional companions
- an austere dowager and a titled socialite.
At first the ladies are wary of each other and unsure of their
roles at the villa. But the idyllic hideaway holds a special
magic, and as friendships flourish and hopes reawaken the
four discover romance, hope and, ultimately, liberation.

The excellent cast includes Jayne Atkinson, Molly Ringwald, Elizabeth Ashley, Michael Cumpsty,
Connoly, Dagmara Dominczyk, Daniel Gerroll and Michael Hayden.
Atkinson, delivering what deserves to be an award winning performance, plays Lotty, the
sheltered English housewife who, as the property of
her attorney husband, brilliantly played by Michael Cumpsty, is used to benefit his
Ringwald is the ever hopeful Rose. While her strict moral code disapproves of her husband,
played by Daniel Gerroll, writing naughty historical novels
under a pseudonym, she manages to
always see life's glass as half full. Dagmara Dominczyk is Lady Caroline Bramble, the gorgeous
socialite who, in her
need for love, has settled for sex. Ashley is Mrs. Graves, the prideful matron who is accustomed
to ruling everyone's roost.

This Broadway show is the latest incarnation of what began as
the 1921 novel Elizabeth by Elizabeth von Armin - one of the many lovers taken
by author H.G. Wells.
There have been two movie versions. The
first was released in March of 1935. It was adapted by Samuel Hoffman and Ray Harris from a
radio dramatization by Kane Campbell, which in turn was adapted from the novel. The film was
directed by Harry Beaumont and starred Ann Harding, Frank Morgan, Katherine Alexander, and
The 1992 movie starred Miranda Richardson, Joan Plowright,
Polly Walker, Josie Lawrence, Alfred Molina and
Jim Broadbent. The effort received Academy Award Nominations
including a Best Supporting Actress for Joan Plowright's portrayal of Mrs. Graves.

The original book and both movies were criticized for having too long of an English set-up
before moving to the Villa. No doubt this play will receive the same criticism. This work -
no matter what form taken - has never been a high speed car chase. It's about four women with
drastically different lives who have the same emotional needs. Enchanted April speaks to
all women. See the show, read the book or
rent the movie. There is a reason this work has been popular
for over eighty years.

BERNADETTE PETERS STARS IN
This eagerly anticipated revival with a book
by Arthur Laurents, music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen
Sondheim, suggested by the memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee starring Bernadette Peters
officially opened May lst. As late as the afternoon of opening night officials were trying to fill the
Hawking telecharge purchases official E-mail flyers stated:
"CELEBRATE THE OPENING WITH US! Curtain up on GYPSY tonight at 6:30 PM sharp!
The highly anticipated revival of Gypsy - starring two-time Tony Award
winner Bernadette Peters - opens TONIGHT at the Shubert Theatre and there a
just few tickets left available for purchase!"
Tickets, by the way, are $100.
In a role that Ethel Merman carved in stone on stage and Rosaline Russell on film,
Peters transforms into her own dimension. You either will
or won't accept her in the role. That decision will be
personal with each customer. The overwhelming majority
should find Peters wears the
part well. After all, real stagemothers come in all ages, coloring, sizes and voice pitches. If your
blinders focus on Merman or Russell, then Peters isn't going to open a
mind. If you are game to experience a revival and enjoy it on
its own terms, then Peters paves her
own road, hushing all who thought she might be wrong for the part. Virtually everyone knows the
storyline, which hasn't changed.
The Jule Style/Stephen Sondheim score is peerless. Seeing the show is one of the reasons
to come to New York this summer.
Sam Mendes does an excellent job directing the cast which includes; Bernadette Peters (Rose),
John Dossett (Herbie), Tammy Blanchard (Louise), Addison Timlin (Baby Louise), Heather Tepe
(Baby June), Kate Reinders (June), William Parry (Pop and Kringelein), David Burtka (Tulsa),

HAIRSPRAY Composed by Marc Shaiman
with John Hill. Lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
Book by Mark O' Donnell and Thomas Meehan. Based upon
the New Line Cinema film written and directed by
John Waters, is running on Broadway and preserved on CD by Sony Classic. It's impossible to
see the upbeat show or listen to the CD without being effused with a positive attitude.
One of the first productions to open on Broadway this
season and with a CD released shortly thereafter,
Hairspray will be up for a slew of theatrical
awards. Officials are concerned that since the production
opened at the beginning of the season, voters might overlook the show in favor of more
recently mounted production. Delightful to remember, Hairspray is impossible to
forget. The musical is infectious.
Larger than life - be it costumes, hair or songs -
it's campy, zingy, upbeat.
Marissa Jaret Winokur
The production stars Tony winner Harvey Firestein. He will
be in a neck to neck race for Best Actor in a Musical
against Nine star Antonio Bandares.
Marissa Jaret Winokur, who plays Tracy Turnbiad, will walk
away with her Tony this year. Jack O'Brien directs a cast
that includes; Laura Bell Bundy, Mary Bond Davis,
Kerry Butler, Linda Hart, Jackie Hoffman, Matthew Morrison,
Corey Reynolds, Clarke Thorell, Joel Vig, Danelle Eugenia Wilson
and Dick Latessa.
Your box of iridescent crayons is brought to life in this
musical which is a Welcome To The 60s. That is also the
name of a song which never fails to stop the show.
If you lived through that era - or didn't and wondered why everyone had big hair - take a life
affirming trip down memory lane with Hairspray.

REASONS TO STAY AT
Sir John and Lady Olliff-Cooper
not just the best
and classiest reality show on television - this series is some of the
best television of this or any season. It premiered on PBS last Monday-Wednesday, April
28-30. It needs to be repeated and is available on video.
A fascinating look at the rigid social hierarchy of Edwardian Britain, this six-part cultural-reality
series documents the experiences of real-life, modern people living in another historic time period
that is authentically re-created.
The 19 British participants in Manor House, chosen from nearly 8,000 applicants, were
each given rulebooks based on household manuals and etiquette guides of the day.
Twelve servants work around the clock to keep life in a rural Edwardian mansion running
smoothly while tending to the five members of the "aristocratic" Olliff-Cooper family.
Living in cramped quarters, the servants have no time off and are forbidden such basic freedoms
as fraternizing or choosing when to take their weekly bath. When a member of the aristocratic
family passes them,
they must avert their eyes and do their best to become invisible. The experiment, representing the
years 1905 to 1914, was conducted for three months.
Mr. Edgar serving Sir John
"The series is as much about social status, interaction and behavior as it is about leaving the
modern world and all of its technological conveniences behind,” said executive producer Beth
Hoppe. "There are three distinct social classes in Manor House — the aristocratic family,
the upper servants and the lower servants — all under one roof but living very separate and
unequal lives. The house is like a microcosm of early 20th-century Britain, and it's fascinating to
see what happens when the participants bring their modern ideas and identities into that
In the role of Master of the House is Sir John Olliff-Cooper, a 56 year-old who, in real life, has
run a successful flooring business for thirty years.
Anna Olliff-Cooper put aside her work as an emergency room doctor at Southampton General
Hospital, to enjoy
the life of mistress of the house - which required changing outfits six times a day and stressing
over who would sit next to whom at banquet tables. In real life Anna has been
married to John for eleven years and together they have a
son, 10-year-old Guy, who quickly tired of his formal
part in the production, Guy preferred being downstairs
with the help. "I really don't want to be an Edwardian child," he says. "I've lived
the experience. I'm getting quite fed up with it."
Winning the role as butler was Hugh Edgar, who delivered an
outstanding performance. The 63 -year-old resident of Surrey, England is an architect who has
worked all over the World as a Consultant Architect. The Hashemite Royal
Family employed him for many years, building Royal residences and a mausoleum mosque for the
wife of King Hussein of Jordan. He is currently working on archival buildings in the UK.
As a reality show the plotline experienced some re-writes. The scullery maid quit in a huff. The
first footman and the hall boy were found passed out on the
estate grounds, still drunk from an all-night bender. And just when it seems that things couldn’t
possibly get any worse, the hall boy, Kenny Skelton, and the new scullery maid, Ellen Beard, are
caught doing more than the dishes. The temperamental French chef, Denis Dubiard, slaves over
extravagant meals and works through illness. He calls Sir John a fake and in a snit refuses to
shake his hand at a party for the servants.
It’s hard to find good help, especially when the servants are attractive, 21st-century
twenty-somethings accustomed to having their own way and answering to no one. But this is the lot in Edwardian life at
Manderston, a 109-room Scottish mansion, which was the setting for
this latest in the PBS “hands-on history” series.
Presiding over the young servants are the no-nonsense butler and the
matronly housekeeper. And above them all, literally and figuratively, is the aristocratic family living a life of elaborate banquets, a charity bazaar, fox hunt and a big costume party celebrating
the nations in the British Empire.
Reading the narration with impeccable flourish is Sir Derek Jacobi.
Next for PBS on the reality front: Colonial House will follow players living as 17th-century
settlers over five months.
THE GIN GAME starring Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke. This marks their first
reunion as fictional characters since playing Rob and Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show from 1961-66.
