C

rop Circles are geometric patterns which show up mysteriously
in fields overnight and are found all over the world. Should we
consider this phenomenon seriously? “Absolutely!” says Jennifer
Stein, drawing on information from researchers worldwide, as well as
her 20 years of first-hand exploration and examination of this phe-
nomenon. On February 12, 2 -
4 p.m., Stein will share the latest
information on this riveting
subject, through slides & film
clips. The event costs $30 and
will be held upstairs at the Moose Lodge, 127 East State St., Doyles-
town PA 18901. To register, call 215-348-5755 or visit www.SusanDuval-
Seminars.com.
Although many people are aware of crop circles in England, Jennifer
will focus her presentation on crop circles found in the United States
and Canada. She will share the perspectives of many experts as to
exactly what creates these patterns, and the effects on the plants themselves. Time will be available for
questions, and a comprehensive resource list for further research will be available.

A
uthor and musician Wesley
Stace will read from his latest
novel, Charles Jessold, Consid-
ered as a Murderer, in the Forum
Theater of Campion Student
Center at Saint Joseph’s Uni-
versity on Thursday, February 17 at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public. A
thriller set in 1920s England, Jessold traces
the mysterious – and sometimes macabre –
connection between the fictitious compos-
er Charles Jessold and musical critic Leslie
Shepherd. Mixing history, literature, music
and murder, Stace creates what Tom Nolan
of the Wall Street Journal has called “daz-
zling” and “a bravura chron-
icle.”
Jessold is Stace’s third novel,
following Misfortune (2005),
a gothic story about adoles-
cence and identity, and by
George (2007), the story of
the Fisher family as told by
11-year-old George Fisher
and his grandfather’s ven-
triloquist’s dummy, also
named George.
In addition to his career as
a novelist, Stace has released
15 folk-rock albums under
the name of John Wesley
Harding. Though he has only recently moved
to Philadelphia, he has had a long-time rela-
tionship with WXPN-FM, making radio ap-
pearances and performing at World Café
Live on Walnut Street.
Integrating music with literature, the Feb-
ruary 17 reading will feature the musical
accompaniment of Daniel Felsenfeld and the
Jessold Consort. Felsenfeld has composed
a five-song suite in the style of Charles
Jessold called On Murder, Considered as a Fine
Art, which will be performed while Stace
reads. “This combination of art forms allows
the audience to see how creative mediums

O
n Wednesday, February 16, Philadel-
phia’s Crossroads Music presents
Chiwoniso, whom NPR’s Banning Eyre
describes as “one of the most compelling
voices in today’s African music,” with “an
assertiveness and style that no other
female singer in Zimbabwe can match.”
The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m.
at 801 South 48th Street in West Philadel-
phia. Tickets are $10-$30 and are available
both at the concert and online at www.cross-
roadsconcerts.org. For information call
215-729-1028.
Chiwoniso performs entrancing and up-
lifting songs with ancient soul and mod-
ern spirit. Backed by the mesmerizing
interlocking melodies of the mbira,
Chiwoniso’s voice resounds with defiant
strength and profound tenderness. With
a sound that recalls the fire of Angelique
Kidjo, the inspiration of Oliver Mtukudzi,
the rebellion of Thomas Mapfumo and the
soul of India.Aire, Chiwoniso is one of the
most exciting talents in African music today.
“I am like a mirror,” she declares. “I basi-
cally sing about what I see happening in
the world. If someone comes up to me in the street to ask
for money I’ll sing about that. If people are jumping bor-
ders because their economic situation
is too difficult, I’ll sing about that. If the
police are beating people up and intimi-
dating them, I’ll sing about that.”
The daughter of musician and ethno-
musicologist Dumisani Maraire, Chiwoniso
grew up in both Washington State and
Zimbabwe and learned to love Stevie
Wonder, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Frank-
lin, and Mozart as well as the songs and
instrumental music of her Shona family.
Since releasing her first album in 1995,
she has become known for her superb
voice, confident interpretation, and un-
compromising yet empathic lyrics, all
backed by an all-star band and held to-
gether by the music of Zimbabwe’s na-
tional instrument, the mbira.
Crossroads Music organizes public per-
formances by accomplished musicians
with roots in cultures from around the
world. Its concerts, workshops, master
classes, lectures, and other activities
educate the public by providing a wel-
coming and affordable environment for
music-lovers of all ages and backgrounds
to explore seldom-heard sounds and engage in intercultur-
al dialogue.

C
ity Avenue Time Bank is a newly organized community
exchange program serving zip codes 19131, 19151 and
19004. A Time Bank is a way for neighbors to exchange
services. For every hour of service given, one hour of cred-
it is earned which can later be spent to receive one hour
of service. It is a great way to get to know your neighbors,
get help and be a good neighbor.
Credits are based on time. If you like to bake, credits can
be earned by teaching someone who wants to learn baking.
A strong neighbor shovels your sidewalk when it snows.
That neighbor earns credits in his Time Bank account and
you pay for it with the credits you earned teaching baking.
Other examples of services are: tutoring, reading to an
adult or child, cooking for someone who is ill, calling some-
one who is housebound, helping a neighbor with yard work
or teaching a musical instrument. The list is endless.
The organizers of City Avenue Time Bank are your neigh-
bors. The goal is to enhance person-to-person support in
order to build a fully inclusive community that is strong,
responsive and connected. Join the group for an informa-
tional meeting on Wednesday, February 16, at 7 p.m. (snow
date Wednesday, Feb. 23), at Elder Watch Plus, 7536 Haver-
ford Avenue, Philadelphia 19151.
RSVP for the February 16 meeting by leaving a message
at 215-475-8283.

f February’s chill has left you in the doldrums, The Players
Club of Swarthmore Theater has a remedy that will tickle
your funny bone and get your heart racing. Deathtrap is a
cleverly-crafted comic mystery by master storyteller Ira Levin
that holds the record as the longest-running comedy-thrill-
er in Broadway history. It opens on the PCS Mainstage on
February 11 and runs through February 26.
Deathtrap is the story of playwright Sidney Bruhl, who is
suffering from writer’s block and hasn’t had a hit in ages.
Suddenly, along comes a gifted student who wants mentor-
ing from his hero. He shows up at Sidney’s country home
with the only copy of a play he’s written, and it’s good—
really good. Let the plot twists begin....
Director Bohdan Senkow of Clifton Heights (also Director
of Theater at Widener University) has assembled some stel-
lar talent to perform this script, which was nominated for the
Tony Award for Best Play. His cast includes: Michael Steven
Schultz of Swarthmore as Sidney Bruhl and James Meinel
of Collingdale as the eager student. Senkow and Schultz have
a long association with The Players Club and each other.
Schultz quips, “The first time I worked with Bo, in 1989, I
played a horse. I’ve come a long way since then.”
They are joined by Lori-Nan Engler of Malvern as Sidney’s
wife; Kathleen Coll Senkow of Clifton Heights as the psychic
neighbor, and Alan Harbaugh of Newark, Delaware as Bruhl’s
attorney.
Deathtrap runs February 11-13, 17-20 and 24-26. Thurs-
day, Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m., with
Sunday matinées at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for Adults, $14
for Seniors and $8 for students (18 and under or college
students with ID). All tickets and ticket packages are avail-
able the day of the performance at the box office, or may
be purchased in advance by visiting www.pcstheater.org
or calling 1-866-811-4111 (ticket sales through TheaterMania).
For Info or Group Sales: 610-328-4271.
The Players Club of Swarthmore is an all-volunteer orga-
nization, now in its 100th season. The theater is located at
614 Fairview Road—just off of Route 320 (Chester Road).
It’s only minutes from I-95 and Route 476 with the R3 Regional
Rail line within walking distance, at the edge of the Swarth-
more College Campus. The Players Club Mainstage is fully
handicapped accessible (including assisted listening devices)
and there is plenty of free off-street parking.

H
op to it and welcome in the Year of the Rabbit! The Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and
Anthropology presents the 30th annual Chinese New Year
Celebration Saturday, February 12, 2011, from 11:00 a.m.
to 4:00 p.m. This PECO World Culture Day features music
and dance performances, healing and martial arts demon-
strations, games, workshops, children’s activities, and grand
opening as well as grand finale lion dance performances. The
celebration is free with Museum admission donation ($10
general admission; $7 senior citizens [65+]; $6 students
[with ID] and children [6 to 17]; free for children under 6,
members, and PennCard holders).
Special presentations bring the sights, sounds, and won-
ders of China to the Museum. Penn Lions, a University of
Pennsylvania student group, kick off the celebration with
an electrifying lion dance opener.
Chinese for Families students perform traditional dances
from the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China. Chinese for
Families is a multicultural Chinese language school offering
Mandarin language and dance classes. Students from the
school will also present a Chinese language demonstration,
teach a Chinese folk song, show a Chinese New Year movie,
and host a craft workshop where children can try their hands
at making Xinjiang dancer puppets.
Qin Qian and Kurt Jung perform traditional and modern
Chinese music on the erhu (Chinese two-string fiddle) and
the yangchin (Chinese hammered dulcimer). Qin Qian is a
well-known erhu performer from Nanning, China, and Kurt
Jung is a local Chinese and Western music performer. Both
teach Chinese music in the Philadelphia area and have
published music books. The duo will demonstrate and dis-
cuss the differences and similarities between Chinese and
Western music at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Dr. Jingduan Yang, Director, Acupuncture & Oriental Medi-
cine Program, Thomas Jefferson University, and Founder
and Medical Director, Tao Institute of Mind & Body Medicine,
lectures on “A Brief Introduction to Chinese Medicine” at
11:00 a.m. Dr. Yang discusses the history of Chinese medi-
cine and its similarities, differences, and complementary
practices to modern medicine. Between 11:00 a.m. and 3:30
p.m., visitors can head to the Chinese Rotunda, where staff
from the Tao Institute of Mind & Body Medicine talk about
different ways of healing in the context of Chinese medicine.
Onlei Annie Jung, a Calligraphy and Chinese painting instruc-
tor at the Perkins Center for the Arts, teaches visitors basic
brush strokes for writing Chinese Characters and painting
at a workshop held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Then Onlei
returns at 2:00 p.m. to present a workshop about the ancient
Chinese tangram puzzle. Tangrams are a set of seven geo-
metric puzzle pieces used to create distinct shapes from a
specific form. Over the centuries, tangrams have amused
many from China, Europe, and the Americas, as countless
shapes can be made, and the level of difficulty is wide rang-
ing.
A rich line-up of dance performances takes place through-
out the day! At 12:30 p.m., Minghui School Dance Team
executes classical Chinese dances such as a Tribute to the
Holy Lotus and the Sound of Hope. The 6 to 14-year-old girls
of the MeiMei Dance Troupe entertain audiences with a
variety of Pan-Asian dances reflecting ancient Chinese tales
at 1:00 p.m. Next, at 2:00 p.m., the Philadelphia Mulan Dance
Troupe performs an engaging routine reflecting China’s
long and prominent dance culture, including folk and mod-
ern Chinese, Tibetan, and Mongolian dances.
Visitors have the opportunity to practice mind-body self-
improvement techniques throughout the day. At 1:00 p.m.,
those curious about the health benefits of Tai Chi can par-
ticipate with Master John Chen, Ba’Z Tai Chi & Kung Fu
Studio, in a Tai Chi demonstration. Then, at 2:00 p.m., atten-
dees can join Falun Gong practitioners for mindful exercise
and related holistic teachings.
Members of Cheung’s Hung Gar Kung Fu Academy offer
an exhilarating Kung Fu demonstration at 3:00 p.m. in the
Harrison Auditorium. Then, at 3:45 p.m., lion dancers and
drummers from Cheung’s Academy wind their way from
Harrison Auditorium to the Warden Garden, closing the
Museum’s New Year celebration with a traditional lion dance
to chase away evil and usher in a year of good luck.
Activities for children and families abound in the Museum’s
Chinese Rotunda at the Chinese Art Marketplace, from 11:00
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Visitors can experience demonstrations
by area artists, including paper cutting and Chinese callig-
raphy, learn more about Chinese New Year traditions, in-
cluding Chinese zodiac and its legend and how the New
Year is celebrated in China, and see the Museum’s much
touted 19th century crystal ball—believed to have been
owned by the last Dowager Empress, a Chinese ruler in
the late 1800s.
The Museum’s two shops, the Museum Shop and the
Pyramid Shop for Children, offer a colorful selection of
Chinese arts, crafts, games, and books just for the celebra-
tion. As always, the Museum Cafe features several Chinese
lunch entrees and kid-friendly foods.
The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology
and Anthropology is dedicated to the study and under-
standing of human history and diversity. Founded in 1887,
the Museum has sent more than 400 archaeological and

F
ebruary 6 - 12 is National Burn Awareness Week, and,
once again, the Burn Foundation (http://www.burnfoun-
dation.org), a Philadelphia-based non-profit dedicated to
supporting the burn care community and enhancing the
quality of life for burn survivors, is focusing its efforts on
educating parents about how to prevent their children from
incurring serious burns by scalding.
Emergency rooms see 300 young children with scalds
(burns caused by hot liquid or steam) every day, accord-
ing to Shriners Hospital for Children. And, the Children’s
Burn Foundation reports that scalds remain the most com-
mon burn-related injury for children, accounting for three
in four burns among children under age four.
“Because young children have thinner skin than adults,
when they can get scalded, or burned in general, it is more
serious,” said Patsy Porter, president and CEO of the Burn
Foundation. “It’s vital for parents to be careful themselves
and to teach their children burn and scald safety. That’s why
we’re pleased to offer parents an informational guide/col-
oring book that can help them share kid-friendly safety
information through play, discussion, and actual practice.”
The Burn Foundation also offers the following tips to keep
kids safe from scalds:
• Set Your Hot Water Heater no higher than 120 Degrees:
Water can scald at temperatures of 130 degrees and above,
so setting your water heater below 120 degrees is an im-
portant first step in preventing burns. Since thermostats
may not always be well-calibrated, your actual water
temperature may be hotter than 120 degrees, so always
be sure to test on your own skin first.
• Never Hold a Child While Cooking, Drinking, or Carry-
ing Hot Foods or Liquids: Remember that steam is danger-
ous too and it only takes seconds for a child to be scalded.
• Always Check the Temperature of Food Before Giving
It to a Child: You can’t rely on kids to test food before dig-
ging in – so be sure to do it for them.
• Microwaved Foods Can be Deceiving: Be particularly
careful with microwaved foods, which may not feel hot to
the touch, but can still burn when placed in the mouth or
spilled on skin. Infant formula should never be heated in a
microwave.
• Declare a “Kid-Free” Zone: Keep children at least
three feet away from the stove and any other area where
hot food or liquids are being prepared or carried.
• Practice Pot and Pan Safety: When young children are
present, try only to use the stove’s back-burners. And re-
gardless of who’s in the kitchen, always turn handles toward
the back of the stove so that they can’t be pulled down or
knocked over.
• Teach Cooking Safety: Make sure kids understand that
hot things burn! When you decide they are old enough to
help with the cooking, continue to supervise them closely.
While prevention is always best, here’s what you should
keep in mind if your children are burned:
• Cool the burn with lukewarm water.
• Do not use butter or ice as these can make a burn worse.
• Remove any garments or jewelry – the burn will swell.
• After cooling, wrap the burn with a clean dry cloth.
• Contact your physician. All burns sustained by children
require medical treatment.
To request the informational guide/coloring book for
personal or classroom use, or to learn more about Burn
Awareness Week, call the Burn Foundation at 215-545-3816
or visit www.burnfoundation.org.

W
e all know that a healthy diet, one that includes fruits
and vegetables, is good for our heart, but why? Accord-
ing to Harry Morris, DO, director, PCOM Healthcare Center
—City Avenue Division there are a variety of reasons. “We
need to remember that everything we eat has a direct im-
pact on our body,” explains Dr. Morris. “If we’re interested
in becoming healthier, it’s a good idea to think closely about
what we eat and how it will benefit our bodies, especially
our heart.”
Let’s take a look at specifics.
• Fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help con-
trol total blood cholesterol. High cholesterol may lead to
heart disease. Studies also show that increasing dietary
fiber can reduce blood pressure and inflammation, both of
which are harmful to heart health.
• Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants-—substances
that protect our bodies from free radicals. Free radicals are
atoms or molecules produced naturally by our bodies that
can attack our organs, including the heart, and cause dis-
ease.
• High blood pressure is a major contributing factor of
heart disease. Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of
minerals that relax blood vessels and help reduce blood
pressure.
• Fruits and vegetables are also low in calories. Replacing
high-calorie snacks such as candy and chips with a piece
of fruit can help lower your weight and reduce stress to your
heart muscle.
“You can make small changes to your diet that can have
a big impact on your heart health,” says Dr. Morris. “While
the recommendation is to eat at least four to six servings
of fruit and vegetables a day, if you’re not used to eating
fruits and vegetables, begin with small steps. Put fruit out
on a table or counter where you’ll see it. This will remind
you to grab an apple or banana when you’re looking for a
snack. Pack some baby carrots or grapes with your lunch.
If you find that you buy vegetables and don’t get around to
using them before they go bad, buy frozen veggies. They
are usually just as nutritious as fresh and more convenient.
But stay away from pre-packaged fruit that comes in syrup.
“Try to eat at least one fruit or vegetable with every meal,”
Dr. Morris suggests. “If eating a whole apple seems like too
much at first, share it with a friend or family member. Get
a healthy-eating buddy and try new fruits and vegetables
together. Your friend and
your heart will thank you.”

care for the whole family. To

cian at the Center, call 215-

hiladelphia’s ‘Fight for Air’ Climb, the
5th annual event to raise awareness of
lung disease, will take place Saturday, March
19 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Three Logan
Square, 1717 Arch Street in Philadelphia.
The Fight for Air Climb seeks to raise funds
to continue the mission of the American
Lung Association to save lives by improving
lung health and preventing lung disease.
Thirty-five million Americans suffer from
lung disease. Over 1.5 million Pennsylvan-
ians suffer from asthma, chronic bronchitis
and emphysema—all forms of lung disease.
Lung cancer, another type of lung disease,
is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the
U.S., outpacing deaths from breast, prostate,
colon, liver and kidney cancers combined.
Participants of the climb are slated to climb
all 50 flights of stairs of the Three Logan
Square building. A First Responder Chal-
lenge, where firefighters, police officers and
EMS responders race up the building, will
occur at the start of the event. A celebra-
tion at nearby Tir Na Nog Irish Bar & Grill
on 1600 Arch Street will take place at the
conclusion of the climb.
The Fight for Air Climb is open to individ-
uals and teams of family members, friends
and associates. There is a registration fee
of $25 and a minimum fundraising amount
of $100.
To register or for information, contact
Rachael Pettigrove at 610-941-9595 ext. 109

ullying is an unfortunately all-too-common occurrence
in today’s society. As part of its commitment to the health
and well-being of the community it serves, Crozer-Keystone
Health System offers a segment on bullying as part of its
Passport to Health program (PTH).
Created by CKHS Cancer Services and managed by the
Healthline Services department at Delaware County Memor-
ial Hospital, PTH aims to educate students about the im-
portance of decision-making and maintaining a healthy life-
style. It does so by providing elementary school students
packets of information and interactive games on topics that
include genetics, dental health, bullying, tobacco preven-
tion, germ prevention, exercise, heart health, nutrition,
safety and sun safety. The program is partially funded
through grants by AztraZeneca Pharmaceuticals and TD Bank.
With the invention of cyber-bullying, bullying has become
a big issue for students, schools and parents. According to
www.safeyouth.org, nearly 30 percent of the nation’s youth
are involved in bullying as either a bully, a target of bully-
ing or both. It is an issue that every school needs to address.
Knowing how problematic this issue has become, in 2010
DCMH started offering assembly presentations on the topic
at area schools.
Joe Perezi, who works in the Emergency Department at
DCMH, facilitates Passport to Health’s interactive bullying
program. Over the past decade, Perezi has primarily work-
ed on substance abuse programs. However, last spring he
dedicated time to create a bullying program, which was
adopted by the Passport to Health program and proved to
be very effective.
In early 2010, the bullying program was piloted in a few
area schools reaching approximately 400 students. “Every
school is different when it comes to bullying,” Perezi explains.
Each presentation is tailored to the “bullying climate” of each
school. He uses a PowerPoint presentation that provides
visual aid and helps keep the program on track. But, the
program relies more on open discussion to get everyone
involved and talking about bullying on a personal level.
Perezi starts his presentation by introducing himself and
explaining the program guidelines. He then explains the
different types of bullying, which are physical, verbal, rela-
tional and cyber. Next, he identifies the characteristics of a
bully by asking, “Does anyone know an example from a TV
show or in a movie?” After identifying a bully’s character-
istics, they talk about the way a bully would act and name
examples. After describing a bully he informs the children
about the negative effects bullying could have on their
future.
Toward the end of the presentation they talk about ways
of stopping a bully, the effects bullying has on everyone,
and the rules against bullying. Students then receive hand-
outs and small gifts for participating and the school is pre-
sented with an educational poster.
Bullying is one of the most serious issues in schools today.
Passport to Health’s bullying program has gotten off to a
great start and there are plans to continue enhancing the
program going forward.
Since the 2004-05 school year, Passport to Health has
steadily increased the number of schools and students that
participate. Over the current school year, Passport to Health
will reach 30 public and parochial schools. Debbie Simon,
Director of Healthline Services, says that “Passport to Health
has grown by leaps and bounds. We went from reaching 500
students in the program’s first year to 6,000 students this
year.”
If you would like to schedule a presentation on bullying
in your elementary school or for information on the Pass-
port to Health Program, call Debbie Simon at 610-284-8158.

It may be the Year of the Rabbit,
but it felt more like the Year of
the Dragon at Germantown
Friends School last Friday, when
the Pinkus first-grade class cele-
brated the Chinese New Year by
parading around the campus
dressed as a dragon they had
crafted and painted for the occa-
sion. Each student had a chance
to be the “head,” while their
classmates formed the body and
tail of the beast, or played instru-
ments in accompaniment of the
march. The annual event culmi-
nated in a traditional Chinese
feast, which ended with—what
else? Fortune cookies!

T
he Nelly Ber-
man School
of Music (NBS)
will hold a mem-
orial concert in
memory of gifted
violin student,
Chanlan Lee, on
January 23, 2009
at 7 p.m. Chanlan
Lee, age 8, pass-
ed away on Dec-
ember 19 due to
a severe case of
viral encephali-
tis. He was the
youngest schol-
arship student
at the Nelly Ber-
man School of
Music and quite
an accomplished
violinist for his
young age.
Chanlan had a
deep passion for
music that was transparent and vibrant. He was involved
in not only solo performances, but chamber groups and
intensive summer camps. His hard work paid off when he
was the youngest soloist chosen to perform on the stage
at the Kimmel Center as a platinum winner of the NBS Golden
Key Competition. In addition to his heart for playing, he was
also dedicated to the scholarship program that supplement-
ed his lesson fees. To show his appreciation, he took initia-
tive to raise funds, over $300 to be exact, by playing in his
parents’ restaurant in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia.
The January 23 concert will be held at Centennial Hall at
The Haverford School, 450 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford,
from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The event, showcasing students and
professional musicians, will commemorate Chanlan’s love
and passion for music and life. A donation of $15 per adu
and $10 per child is suggested. All proceeds will benefi
the Chanlan Lee Scholarship Program, which will provid
a scholarship to a gifted violin student, from around th
ion with adequate lessons to foster their talent.

T
heatre Exile brings the long-awaited Philadelphia premiere of Martin McDonagh’s
The Lieutenant of Inishmore to Plays and Players Theatre this month. Directed by
Matt Pfeiffer with a star-studded artistic team, The Lieutenant of Inishmore runs
February 17 through March 13, with the press opening Wednesday, February 23 at 8 p.m.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage
through the Philadelphia Theatre Initiative.
Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore drops
audiences into the eye of a firestorm, where
citizens of a small Irish town are locked,
loaded and ready to go. McDonagh’s
storytelling is like a well-oiled machine,
twisting and tightening the plot with
every reload.
Director Matt Pfeiffer has assem-
bled some of the most exciting
designers to bring this gore ballet
to life with meticulous precision.
Waldo Warsaw comes to Philadel-
phia from the original Broadway
production to create jaw-dropping
special effects that will have the
audience ducking for cover. Nationally
acclaimed puppet artist Aaron Cromie
designs the theatrical magic needed to
bring an untimely death to several cats
and half of the inhabitants of Inishmore.
Philadelphia’s Renaissance man, Thom
Weaver, designs the lightscape that in-
cludes the most heart-pounding 30-sec-
ond blackout ever to darken a Philadel-
phia stage. And Brian Sidney Bembridge,
winner of the LA Stage Scene award in
design and named one of the 50 Top
Players of Chicago, comes to Philadel-
phia to create the playground of splatter-
punk fun that the Lieutenant calls home.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore will raise the
bar in theatrical design, putting the spot-
light on holistic theatrical storytelling.
To delve even deeper into this produc-
tion, Exile expands their programming to
include two free design workshops during the run of Lieutenant: one on the backstage
magic of the show, run by Aaron Cromie (for general audiences); and one on Lieutenant’s
special effects, run by Waldo Warsaw (for theatre artists only). Call for information.
The Lieutenant of Inishmore is part of the Philadelphia Irish Theatre Festival, running
now through May 2011: six companies presenting eight Irish plays in six months. To order
Irish Mix Tix packages, discounted 20% with the purchase of tickets to two or more plays,
go to http://mixtix.phillytheatretix.com.
Call 215-218-4022 or visit www.theatreexile.org for performance times and pricing. Tickets
$15 - $40. Student and senior rates available. Substantial savings are offered for groups
of 10 or more, call for details. Theatre Exile is located at 1340 S. 13th Street, Philadelphia,
PA 19147.
Appearing at the Christ Church
Ithan, 536 Conestoga Road,
Villanova, PA on February
13, will be singer/songwriter
Suzanne Cloud performing a
Valentine Jazz Vespers with
pianist Tom Lawton, bassist
Bill Zino, drummer Jim Miller
and guitarist Ron Parker. The
7 - 8 p.m. performance is free.
There will also be free refresh-
ments and free on-site parking.
For information call 610-688-
1110. Suzanne Cloud, a long-
time Philadelphia jazz vocal-
ist and songwriter and Dream-
box recording artist, is making
a rare appearance at the jazz
vespers in Villanova. Since
founding the nonprofit Jazz
Bridge (www.jazzbridge.org)
and teaching, she hasn’t had
much time for performing.
