That miracle on New York's 34th Street, Macy's Department Store, is celebrating it's 100th year in business with an outdoor Broadway extravaganza on Monday, Sept. 23.

Entitled "Remember Me to Herald Square," the world's largest store will celebrate its place in history with a spectacular fashion and musical tribute, which will be held outside the legendary New York City store on 34th and 35th Streets, and feature a host of Broadway talent, as well as appearances by some of the City's favorite personalities and dignitaries.

With more hoping on board every day, those currently scheduled to perform include; Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp, The Highbridge Voices Choir of the Bronx will join Liz Callaway as she sings Beyond The Dream, Jonathan Freeman, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Alix Korey, Mario Cantone, the children of Camp Broadway with Tony Award winner Judy Kaye, and the high flying visual artistry of Anti-Gravity. In addition the birthday bash will feature a performance from the hit Broadway musical Chicago.

Broadcast legend Walter Cronkite will take part in the festivities as will Hal Kahn, the chairman of Macy's East. And, let us not forget Broadway, Bundles, Blossom and Boomer, Macy's very own holiday bears.

Rowland Hussey Macy, a former whaler, opened a small store at West 14th Street in 1857. The red star logo is actually borrowed from a tattoo, which Macy got when he was a sailor. By 1877, the store had expanded to a row of eleven buildings. Macy died in 1877, but the store continued its growth under the direction of Isidor and Nathan Straus, who had headed Macy's china and glassware department.

After outgrowing its original site, the firm acquired the present site in 1902. The ornate entrance at 34th street still has the original caryatids standing guard at the entrance. The clock and the original lettering are there, too. A plaque at the main entrance commemorates the death of Isidor and his wife who died aboard the Titanic in 1912.

Macy's is famous for sponsoring the Thanksgiving Day Parade which was important to the plot line of Miracle on 34th Street, the 1947 classic that has enjoyed several remakes. Macy's also sponsors Fourth of July fireworks and hold its own spring flower show which draws huge crowds annually. To commemorate the 100th anniversary a rose was named in the store's honor.


One of New York's largest and longest-running parades, the 45th Annual German-American Steuben Parade, will have Las Vegas residents Siegfried & Roy as the Grand Marshals announced Parade Chair William Hetzler. Investment banker Heiko H. Thieme is the Parade's Guest of Honor of the event which steps off Saturday, September 21.

The magicians who perform their state of the art illusions at the Mirage Hotel were scheduled to lead last years parade, only to have all plans changed in the wake of the September 11th attack on New York and the Pentagon.

"Last September we held a memorial service at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and then walked in a solemn procession to Engine Company 8 and the 17th Precinct of the NYPD as we joined the rest of New York, the nation and the world in honoring the heroes of September 11," Hetzler said. "Siegfried and Roy wanted to be part of that memorial, but could not fly into New York as all planed were grounded. We are honored that they asked to join us this year."

"We are humbled to be a part of this event that celebrates our German heritage," said Roy. "Though Las Vegas has been our home for more than 30 years, we have maintained contact with our family and friends in Germany and visit whenever we can."

Prominent leaders from New York and Germany will join Siegfried & Roy, and tens of thousands of parade participants, as they lead the colorful parade past nearly one million spectators along Fifth Avenue on September 21.

"This parade is a great celebration of both the rich history of German-Americans dating back to Revolutionary times, and of contemporary German-Americans of great achievement," added Hetzler.

Since its inception in 1958, the German-American Steuben Parade has become one of New York's top tourist attractions, and largest parades.

Previous Grand Marshal have included Rudolph Giuliani, Donald Trump, George Steinbrenner, George Pataki, Eric Braeden and the Hon. Ute W. Lally.

Named after General Frederick Wilhelm von Steuben, and organized to provide the German-American community with the opportunity to celebrate its rich heritage, the parade provides all Americans with a strong and exciting visual picture of the important role German-Americans have played in American history. German-Americans comprise the largest ethnic group in the nation, according to United States Census reports.

The parade kicks off the Oompah Fest and Schutzenfest leading up to Octoberfest.

That means beer, sauerkraut and sausages.

Sauerkraut is second only to mustard as a hotdog topping.

There is one tenth of a head of cabbage is a 14.4 oz can. Over 14.5 million heads are turned into sauerkraut.If all of the sauerkraut cans were put end to end they would stretch over halfway around the world (14,900 miles), or from Rochester, New York to Boise, Idaho!

American eat about three pounds per person per year. Over one billion servings of sauerkraut are consumed each year with 25% of all households buying sauerkraut - about 1.5 pounds at a time every 85 days.

The Dutch eat chicken stuffed with sauerkraut at Christmas as a way to end the year (a chicken scratches the earth back over the old year), and pork and sauerkraut to start the New Year (a pig uses its snout to push the earth forward, or to look ahead). Many European cultures believe it is good luck to eat sauerkraut not only for the New Year, but at graduations and weddings!

Amy Pietz and husband Kenny Williams served sauerkraut at their wedding reception
Just ask Amy Pietz. When the Caroline in the City regular and fellow actor Kenny Williams married, Lea Thompson and the rest of those associated with Caroline in the City attended the wedding in Amy's Wisconsin hometown. Amy was determined to have a fun reception and that meant all of the German traditions. The wedding and reception took place at Turner Hall, a former beer garden. The reception menu included schnitzel, potato pancakes, and sauerkraut!

Sauerkraut is even in desserts which adds moisture and acts as a natural preservative. Examples of desserts made with kraut include the famous chocolate sauerkraut cake, sauerkraut pie, and spice cake.

Sauerkraut was eaten by the Chinese as far back as the third century B.C. Even the French celebrate it. The French Sauerkraut Festival takes place September 21-22 in Brienne-la-Chateau, France.

Reigning kraut-eating champion Brenda Lashley was seven months pregnant during this year's competition. She gobbled down more than a pound of sauerkraut at the Kraut Festival in Franksville, Wis., to claim her title as the women's World Champion Kraut eater. She took home a trophy and $100.

"I just hope he likes it," Lashley said of her unborn child, while admitting she's not too fond of the food herself.

Lashley has placed first, second or third in the women's competition every year for the past 15 years.

Her secret?

"Don't look up. Don't look at the crowd."

Carl Reiner
Actor/writer/director/producer Carl Reiner kicks off the new Up Close at The Center speaker series at the Orange County Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, September 18.

The Orange County Performing Arts Center, in partnership with Clear Channel Entertainment, has announced a new series that will present today's most celebrated artists, performers and public figures in a personal forum, called Up Close at The Center. This year's schedule of speakers will include 12-time Emmy Award winning actor, comedian and writer Carl Reiner, former Mr. Universe and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger on November 18 and Academy Award, Tony Award and Presidential Medal of Honor winner Julie Andrews next Spring.

The recipient of 12 Emmy Awards Reiner was as a co-star on the legendary television program Your Show of Shows, creator and co-star of The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Interviewer on The 2,000 Year Old Man, and director of such feature films as The Jerk, All of Me and Oh,God!

Born in the Bronx, Reiner trained as a machinist helper in the millinery trade while simultaneously studying drama. Show business seemed to be where his true talents lay: Reiner landed a part as a second tenor in an updated version of The Merry Widow. World War II sidetracked his entertainment ambitions momentarily, but after training as a radio operator, French-language interpreter and teletype operator, he finally settled in as a comedian and actor with Maurice Evans' Special Service Entertainment Unit. Reiner toured the Pacific in G.I. revues for 18 months until the end of the war.

Following his discharge and roles in various Broadway musicals, Reiner joined Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca on Your Show of Shows. His autobiographical work Enter Laughing, became the basis for a Broadway play and feature film of the same name.


THE IT GIRL in a black and white world everything is where it belongs. Our hero, who stands straight and tall because he starches his underwear and socks, is looking for a gal that will make him so hot he'll loosen his tie. Enter The It Girl.

Jay Records has released the CD of the original cast recording of the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical The It Girl, based on the 1927 film It that made Clara Bow a star.

This is not a musical about Bow, who was the first mass media sex symbol. However, a little background on the gal who was The It Girl adds another prism about the era and plotlines that made productions like this popular. Bow, manipulated and used by the media and motion picture system, paved the road for Harlow, Monroe and Madonna. She is also responsible for making The It Girl part of our vocabulary.

Between 1922 and 1929 Clara Bow's sexiness, vivaciousness and on screen persona defined the liberated woman of the 1920's. It didn't start out that way.

Born in a Brooklyn tenement in 1905 during one of the worst heat waves New York has ever experienced, Clara was unwanted from day one. Both her mother and grandmother were mentally ill. Her disinterested father deserted the family shortly before Clara was born. Clara's mother hoped that the heat would kill both her and her child and didn't bother with a birth certificate.

Clara Bow as Betty Lou in It
Lonely and hypersensitive Clara turned to motion pictures as her escape. At home she would look in the mirror and imitate what she had seen on the screen.

In the early 1920's, most every American girl dreamed of winning a fan magazine contest as a stepping stone to becoming a movie actress. Clara was no different. What was different was that she won. The January 1922 edition of Motion Picture Magazine announced Clara as the 1921 Fame and Fortune Contest winner.

After the resounding success of the movie It Paramount typecast her. All roles were variations of how a charming and scheming woman, would win over an otherwise unavailable man. In droves people flocked to see Clara Bow movies.

The child of poverty and neglect suddenly came into money, fame, and a realization of her own sexual power.

She became known for her very colorful off-screen life, and was eventually brought low by scandal - love affairs, madcap adventures, and careless, sometimes drunken exploits. In 1930 her life spun hopelessly out of control. After falling victim to three horrible scandals that involved gambling, carousing, and a much publicized court trial, Clara found a safe place in the arms of cowboy star, Rex Bell, whom she married in 1931.

The newlyweds moved from the bright lights of Hollywood, to their remote 400,000 acre Walking Box Ranch in Searchlight, Nevada. There they regularly hosted legends such as Lionel Barrymore, Errol Flynn, Clark Gable and Norma Shearer, showing off their 1,800 head of cattle.

Jean Louisa Kelly starring in The It Girl
They remained at the ranch raising their two sons, until the mid-1940s, when they separated and Bell pursued a career in politics. He eventually served as Nevada lieutenant governor. First born son Rex Anthony Beldam, better known as Rex Bell, Jr., served as Clark County (Las Vegas) district attorney in the 1980s and early '90s He is now an attorney in private practice.

Plagued by physical and mental problems Clara returned to California around 1950 to live out her remaining years separated from Rex but near her California doctor. The two never divorced.

Rex Bell passed away from a heart attack on July 4, 1962 when he was in the early stages of his campaign for the Nevada Governor's seat. Clara Bow passed away on September 26, 1965. They are interred together at Forest Lawn - Glendale, California.

The New York Times called this musical The It Girl "a very pleasant surprise with a smart, savvy score," perfectly captures the energy and excitement of the Jazz Age and the charm of the silent flickers.

Jean Louisa Kelly and Jonathan Dokuchitz in The It Girl
In true madcap 20's style, The It Girl focuses on a bookish young woman who is transformed into a saucy lingerie salesgirl and sets off on a freewheeling chase after love, leading her from the whirling attractions of Coney Island to the romantic distractions of high-society.

With a book by Michael Small and BT McNicholl, music by Paul McKibbins and lyrics by BT McNicholl, The It Girl opened for an exclusive 6-week run at New York City's York Theatre in May, 2001.

The show starred Jean Louisa Kelly (CBS' Yes, Dear and Mr. Holland's Opus) as The It Girl, Jonathan Dokuchitz (The Boys From Syracuse) as Jonathan Waltham, Stephen DeRosa (Into The Woods) as Monty Montgomery, and Jessica Boevers (Oklahoma!) as Adela Van Norman.

Recorded during the show's run, The It Girl album features all of the lively, evocative songs from the McNicholl/McKibbins score including the flapper's anthem Why Not?, the haunting lullaby Mama's Arms, the comic showstopper A Perfect Plan, the romantic and rollicking Coney Island, the ragtime ditty Step Into Their Shoes and the addictive title song, among others.

Albin Konopka on piano, Chris Miele flute, clarinet and saxophone, Amy Kimball violin, Ratso Harris bass, Ray Grappone percussionist, and Greg Utzig on banjo and guitar.

The It Girl will be in stores Tuesday, October 1st.

THE DREW CAREY SHOW the popular ABC-sitcom, commissioned the Cleveland Pops Orchestra to record new arrangements for three of its theme songs.The Pops and conductor Carl Topilow recorded Cleveland Rocks, Moon Over Parma and Five O'Clock World in arrangements by Pops trombonist Paul Ferguson in an Agora theater session.

VIC DAMONE has 80+ newly recorded songs - in some cases new arrangements of previously released songs - which are going to be released over time. Some have an orchestra, others are Vic and a guitar. Some feature a trio. The material covers everything from George and Ira Gershwin to Billy Joel, and many styles and genres in between. Damone as he has never been heard before.

the new musical by composer Stephen Flaherty, lyricist Lynn Ahrens and librettist Terrence McNally, is in previews at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse, NYC slated to officially open on Oct. 10.

Joe Mantello directs a cast of 16 headed by Roger Rees, Tony Award winner Faith Prince, and Emmy winner Charles Keating. Also on board are Ronn Carroll, Luther Creek, Michael McCormick, Jessica Molaskey, Martin Moran, Sally Murphy, Barbara Marineau, Sean McCourt, Katherine McGrath, Steven Pasquale and Patti Perkins.

The show is based on the 1994 film of the same name. A Man of No Importance tells the story of a middle aged, closeted gay bus driver - played by Roger Rees- still living with his older sister - played by Faith Prince. A modest man, a quiet man, Alfie has always found his greatest satisfaction and identity as artistic director of The St. Imelda's Players, an amateur theatre group.

But it is 1964 and the world is changing. Alfie's little theatre is no longer a safe place from the tumultuous world outside.When Alfie declares that, instead of their usual production of The Importance of Being Earnest, the troupe will next present Wilde's provocative Salome, the church authorities balk at the play's "immodest dancing" and his safe little world begins to crumble. In trouble with church hierarchy Alfie wakes up to who he really is and realizes he must stand up and take his place in the world. Still a modest man, Alfie Byrne is no longer a quiet one. Some would even say he has become a man of great importance.

The show will have musical staging by Jonathan Butterell, musical direction by Ted Sperling, sets by Loy Arcenas, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting by Donald Holder and sound by Scott Lehrer.
