FRANK SINATRA, JERRY LEWIS AND MOB MONEY
Do the math.
This past week worldwide headlines erupted about a new book on Frank Sinatra.
In the story first published by The Guardian, Sinatra is hung out to dry as
allegations are made that the mercurial Sinatra was not only a trusted friend of
mobsters but had volunteered to act as a Mafia courier - and was nearly caught
carrying a suitcase stuffed with $3.5m, according to entertainer Jerry Lewis,
who lives in Las Vegas.
The Guardian article states:
"In an interview for a new biography of Sinatra, Lewis is quoted as saying of the
Rat Pack member: "He volunteered to be a messenger for them. And he almost
got caught once ... in New York."
"As he passed through customs, Lewis says, Sinatra was stopped by officials who started to open the suitcase he was carrying. Inside, says Lewis, were notes to the value of "three and a half million in 50s""
"But the customs officers were distracted by the crowds of people trying to catch
a glimpse of the singer and aborted their search.
Had they not, claims Lewis, "we would never have heard of him again".
The anecdote is one of several accounts linking the legendary singer to organized crime in the biography Sinatra: The Life, by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan.
Somebody may have done interviews, but apparently nobody did the math.
One bill of U.S. currency weighs one (1) gram. 454 bills equal one (1) pound. It takes 70,000 (seventy thousand) fifty (50) dollar bills to equal $3.5 million. 70,000 bills, without rubber bands or paper wraps to secure them in piles, weights 154.18 pounds.
154.18 pounds of currency will not fit into one suitcase. It would take
approximately 8 1/2 average size suitcases to hold $3.5 million in $50s.
Sinatra who was, at that time, so skinny it was joked he could hide behind a
microphone stand, is being accused of carrying more than his weight in a suitcase
so large it would be bigger than two steamer trunks.
We're not talking moving a handful of unmounted diamonds. We're talking a tree.
People tend to believe what they see in the movies. A grade B mystery movie where some guy, who talks out of the side of his mouth, dramatically says he got a million dollars and, as the camera heads for a tight shot, opens up a briefcase to display a bunch of bills.
People also love to treat urban myths as facts.
While Sinatra has been called many things - mean drunk and womanizer to name two - nobody
ever called Sinatra stupid.
We don't know if Jerry Lewis was misquoted or if his quotes were taken out of context.
We don't know whether the entertainer - who is noted for his scientific invention skills that
revolutionized the film industry - was in the throws of the excruciating pain
which has dominated his adult life and overly medicated when interviewed for the book.
We've never been aware that Lewis could be easily duped or deficient in
any math skills.
Do the math.
NEW PLAY FLIGHT COINCIDES WITH LINDBERGH
Flight, a new play by Garth Wingfield, follows famed American aviator Charles Lindbergh
during fourteen critical years in his life: from his historic flight to Paris, to the kidnapping of his son, to his
obsession with science, to his sudden decision to move to Europe and the anti-Semitic remarks he made at the
outbreak of World War II. The play is a deconstruction of an American icon and an exploration of the
effects the media and fame have on our celebrities.
Nick Corley directs the cast which includes; Kerry O'Malley, Gregg Edelman, Brian D’Arcy James,
Adam Heller, Rex Young and Victoria Mack. Edelman will play aviator Charles Lindbergh and O'Malley
his writer wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
Sets by Michael Deegan & Sarah Conly. Lighting by Jeff Croiter. Costumes by Daryl Stone. Sound by Randy Hansen.
Music by Lance Horne.
Performances at the 299 seat Lucille Lortel Theatre May 8-June 19.
Charles Lindbergh was the century's first hero and unwittingly pioneered the age of media
celebrity. He first experienced mass attention when on May 21-22, 1927 he became the
first person to fly a solo nonstop flight from New York to Paris. The 25-year-old Charles
Augustus Lindbergh departed from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York in an highly
modified version of a Ryan M-2 strut-braced monoplane, Spirit of St. Louis, and
landed 33 1/2 hours later at Le Bourget Field, near Paris.
Celebrity turned an ugly corner when Lindberg and his wife Anne once again became
the center of the world's attention when in 1932 their baby was kidnapped from their
New Jersey home and later found dead. The ensuing trial is now regarding by many as
the first media circus of the modern era. More than 70 years later the Lindbergh
kidnapping is still a hot topic. Conspiracy theories continue to receive attention
around the "crime of the century".
Public opinion of Lindbergh turned nasty during the late '30s when he visited Nazi Germany and made approving remarks about Adolph Hitler. After the war, he withdrew from the spotlight. Lindbergh died in 1974. Anne lived until 2001.
In addition to this play, events commemorating the historical flight taking place include;
On Friday, May 20, the Legends of the Sky hangar party will be held at the Golden Wings Museum on the grounds of the Anoka County Airport in Blaine, Minnesota. This event will feature Burt Rutan, who recently won the $10 million X Prize competition with his aircraft SpaceShipOne.
On Saturday evening, May 21, the Lindbergh Foundation is holding their 28th annual Lindbergh
Award event honoring Dr. Bertrand Piccard, the first person to circumnavigate the Earth in a hot-air balloon and developer of the exciting project entitled Solar Impulse; and Yolanda Kakabadse, executive president of the Foundation for the Future of Latin American and past president of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
Erik Lindbergh will serve as the Master of Ceremonies at this event being held at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul.
The evening's highlights include a reception and dinner in the Great Hall, presentations by
Yolanda Kakabadse and Bertrand Piccard, who will each receive the honorary
Lindbergh Award presented by Kristina Lindbergh, and recognition of
2005 Lindbergh Grant Recipients.
LEADING MAN WALKS OUT ON BROOKE SHIELDS
Brooke Shields in the Broadway production of Cabaret. Photo by Joan Marcus
Usually men are lined up three deep to get close to Brooke Shields.
There is always an exception.
Shields, making her West End debut, joined the cast of Chicago on April 26.
Hours before the curtain was to go up leading lady Brooke was stood
up by her leading man, Michael French who played Billy Flynn.
"Exploitation, adultery, treachery - all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts."
So begins the musical Chicago. What was happening backstage was just as interesting.
Reports of a personality clash spread faster than a bad review. Neither side was forthcoming
with much of an explanation. Shields smiled while French's representatives indicated he had
been in the show for awhile and it was time to move on.
Shields joined the cast at London's Adelphi Theatre for a limited nine week engagement.
She had only nine days to learn the part and recently admitted she had never seen the
Broadway production of Chicago or the Academy Award winning Hollywood film version.
It's not the first time Shields has slingshot into a part. She had just two weeks to prepare
for her role as Ruth Sherwood, a tough-talking journalist from Ohio in the Leonard Bernstein,
Betty Comden and Adolph Green musical Wonderful Town. She took over the role from
Donna Murphy, who earned a Tony nomination for the part. That was her third time on
Broadway - each time being rushed midrun into a musical. She replaced other actresses in both Grease and Cabaret. In
all three stints she won rave reviews.
As for her part in Chicago, Shields was never scheduled to perform from May 3-13
since she had previously scheduled promotional engagements in America. She will then return
to the part which concludes on June 25.
Understudy Simon Breen assumed the role of Flynn.
French gained fame and a large followed as heart-throb David Wicks on EastEnders..
He joined the Chicago production last December and did not have a long term
performance commitment. In fact, last February potential French replacements knew if they would be sent
a script. ( See Broadway To Vegas column of February 27,
Billy Flynn prospects received the script the first of April - including New Jersey born and bred singer Joe Francis.
Created by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse Chicago is a kiss-and-tell tale of Roxie Hart, a nightclub
singer who kills her lover; Velma Kelly the glamorous double-murderess vying to keep her press supremacy; and
Billy Flynn, the slick lawyer who has the power to keep them from death row and make them in to stars.
The musical, which won the 1998 Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical Production, includes the songs All That
Jazz, Razzle-Dazzle, Class and All I Care About.

four-act play by Eugene O'Neill, produced in 1921 and published in 1922, during which year it was also awarded the
Pulitzer Prize. An earlier version, produced in 1920, was entitled Chris Christopherson.
The tumultuous sea offers the perfect backdrop for Eugene O’Neill’s poignant portrait
of a Swedish barge captain’s reunion with his estranged daughter. The action begins in a waterfront
bar in New York City, where bargemaster Chris Christopherson awaits the
arrival of his daughter, Anna, who has spent her girlhood with relatives in Minnesota. Now grown,
Anna conveys to all but her sentimental father the hardened image of the prostitute she has become.
She recounts the saga of her corruption to Chris's companion, Marthy, a prostitute herself, and then accompanies
her father on a coal run.
The sea, which has become Chris's nemesis, exerts a purifying effect on Anna. The barge takes on a crew
of shipwrecked seamen, and one of them, the Irish lug Mat Burke, becomes smitten with Anna.
Only after Mat and Chris come to blows over her future does Anna reveal her past.
Director Molly Smith directs this American classic.
In previews at Arena Stages in Washington, D.C. The production runs through June 19.
ACIS AND GALATEA by Georg Friedrich Händel.

masque Acis and Galatea, dating from 1718, Handel’s first music drama in English.
Handel took the famous subject, the love story of the nymph Galatea and the shepherd Acis, from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and he already set it to music in 1708 during his years in Italy. Marc Minkowski and his Musiciens du Louvre play the serene bucolic score in the original first version, described by Handel himself as a “Pastoral Entertainment”.
The cast includes Galatea performed by
Gillian Webster. Acis is
Richard Croft. Damon is Bernard Richter.
Corydon is Andrew Tortise and Polypheme is

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU Written
by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. The play that gave birth to the American
funny bone. Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's Pulitzer Prize winning 1936 play is considered by comedy writers and critics alike to sit at the root of all things funny in American art- stage, film and TV. The TV Sitcom would probably never have been born if it weren't for Kaufman and Hart's first family of zany, hilarious, loveable oddballs. There's rarely been a more joyful celebration of the unconventional than You Can't Take It with You.
Directed by Christopher Hart.

the West Coast Premiere of a musical farce based loosely on The Pied Piper of Hamelin.Book and lyrics by LaRue Watts and J. J. Coyle. The music is by Doug Katsaros. Joe Zingo will direct the twenty-nine-member cast with music direction by Jim Roberts. The New York Associate Producer is June Rachelson-Ospa.
Composer Katsaros has been in Eugene for the week prior to the opening which will take place on his birthday, May 7.
LaRue Watts and June Rachelson-Ospa also are spending the week in Eugene.
"As part of our New York Connection, we are proud to bring Oh, Rays! to our Eugene audiences," declared director
Zingo. " I met Doug Katsaros several years ago and ever since hearing him play the piano and sing all of the parts to this show in his studio in New York, I have wanted to direct this way off-the-wall musical loosely based on the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. Loosely based is perhaps an understatement."
"All he wants is to pass through Hamelin to get some water for his bird on his way to see his Swedish sweetie (whose name he has momentarily forgotten). But nooo! That crazy fortune teller insists that he has to overthrow the evil Baron, save the girl (and her virtue) and rid the town of rats before he can continue. Can he do it and still catch the midnight boat to Lapland?"
"The lyrics to the music are very, very funny, with just enough adult innuendo to give new meaning to the words "fractured fairytale." Nothing is what it seems to be in the town of Hamelin. Its people and its Rats all have something in common. They are the zany irreverent, uncontrolled, warped eclectic mixture of characters from the minds of LaRue Watts, J.J. Coyle and Doug Katsaros. Put these three gentlemen in a room and
you come up with a fast paced unorthodox musical about love, rats, and marriage? Sit back, have an open mind, and enjoy the fortunes and misfortunes of the People of Hamelin."
Katasaros was the orchestrator for The Rocky Horror Show which recently played on Broadway. He also conducted and arranged Broadway's Footloose for the entire two year run, both in New York and at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. He orchestrated Cy Coleman's Welcome to the Club, and did the vocal and dance arrangements for Mr. Coleman's Broadway hit The Life.
