misc_none 2:00 PM PAGE TO SCREEN with Dr. Bill Thierfelder: CIMARRON Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Some books will be available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to the program.

Based on Edna Ferber’s 1929 novel about the Oklahoma Land Rush, Cimarron won Best Picture in 1931, and its screenplay by Howard Estabrook received an Oscar. Both the novel and the film are fast-paced yarns that explore a fascinating part of America’s history. When the government opens up the Oklahoma territory for settlement, restless Yancey Cravat (Richard Dix) claims a plot of the free land for himself and moves his family there from Wichita. A newspaperman, lawyer, and just about everything else, Cravat soon becomes a leading citizen of the boom town of Osage. Once the town is established, however, he begins to feel confined once again, and heads for the Cherokee Strip, leaving his family behind. During this and other absences, his wife Sabra (Irene Dunne) must learn to take care of herself and soon becomes prominent in her own right. A rip-snorting tale of adventure, greed, and ego.

Series Overview: Starting with Seventh Heaven, The Jazz Singer, and Glorious Betsy in 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated screenplays derived from another source for an Oscar. Exploring the art of adaptation decade by decade, this series is devoted to those remarkable Oscar-worthy screenplays created from a variety of novels, plays, and non-fiction. Dr. Bill Thierfelder examines the original work and then shows scenes from the film, inviting the audience to compare and contrast two works of art derived from the same source. Lecturer: Dr. Bill Thierfelder, Professor of Arts and Humanities, Dowling College (retired)

misc_none 2:00 PM COFFEE HOUSE BOOK TALK with Janet deWinter: LILA, by Marilyn Robinson Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

 A poetic, bittersweet meditation on faith, family, and belonging, Lila embraces the depths of human doubt and misery while uncovering hope through the power of grace. Lila is a migrant drifter child, then a migrant drifter woman, who eventually becomes the much younger wife of the elderly, widowed John Ames . Lila’s personal tale mirrors conventional Dust Bowl stories during the lawless, desperate period of the Depression. When she is a gravely ill child of about 3, she is stolen away from people who might have let her die. Survival and love are the major themes of the novel. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to the Book Talk.

misc_none 2:00 PM GUSTAV KLIMT AND THE WOMAN IN GOLD with Thomas Germano Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Gustav Klimt painted Adele Bloch-Bauer: The Woman in GoldThe close relationship that existed between the artist and one of his key subjects and patrons is apparent and Adele has the distinction of being the only person Klimt painted twice. Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) is one of the most important artists of fin-de-siècle Vienna. Klimt began his career in a traditional style, but quickly emerged as one of Vienna's preeminent modern artists, creating ebullient landscapes, striking portraits, and erotic drawings of women. Ferdinand and Adele Bloch-Bauer assembled one of Vienna's most renowned art collections, which included a stellar group of works by Klimt, including the two portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer and landscapes. The Klimt paintings originally hung in Adele's private apartment in the couple's Vienna home. Klimt's 1907 Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I was acquired for Neue Galerie New York in 2006. The second portrait of Adele painted in 1912 hangs in the MoMA, NYC. This lecture relates the life and work of Gustav Klimt, the novel and historical dramatic film Woman in Gold, starring Helen Mirren as Adele Bloch-Bauer's niece Maria Altmann. The book and film are based upon the true story of how Altmann successfully sued the Austrian Government for the return of five Klimt paintings seized by the Nazis from the Bloch-Bauer family townhouse in Vienna during World War II.  This Art Lecture with Professor Thomas Germano on Wednesday, September 16,  precedes the library's screening of the film Woman in Gold in its entirety on Monday, September 21, at 2:30 p.m.

misc_none 2:00 PM HOLLYWOOD MUSIC & DANCE with Dr. Kolb: FRED ASTAIRE ON FILM Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Born in 1899, Fred Astaire and his older sister began performing as dancers in vaudeville by 1905, later in the Orpheum Circuit, and on Broadway by 1917. Performing on Broadway and in London’s West End, Fred and Adele were the stars of George and Ira Gershwin’s Lady Be Good (1924) and Funny Face (1927), and Dietz and Schwartz’s The Bandwagon (1931). The partnership ended in 1932 when Adele left the stage to marry an English Lord. After initial difficulties in being accepted for film work, Fred finally got his chance in 1933 in the film, Flying Down to Rio—billed fifth in the film after fourth-listed Ginger Rogers. His career as a film dancer took off, involved a total of 31 musical films, and lasted for 35 years ending in 1968 with Finian’s Rainbow. His dance partner in ten of those films was Ginger Rogers, creating one of the most famous and successful partnerships in film dance history—and yet, he also danced powerfully with Rita Hayworth, Judy Garland, Cyd Charisse, Jane Powell, and Leslie Caron, among others.

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

Pluto became a hot topic when NASA’s New Horizons space probe reached the former planet this past summer.  Former planet? In a controversial move, the International Astronomical Union “demoted” Pluto in 2006.  This program explores what it means to be a planet and focuses on the plight of poor Pluto. We examine the story of Pluto's discovery and the science that surrounds this former planet, including the possibility of finding more Pluto-like planets in the mysterious Kuiper belt. From the scientists trying to classify Pluto to die-hard "Pluto-philes," we meet a fascinating cast of characters with just one thing in common: Strong opinions about Pluto.

misc_none 2:00 PM FRIDO KAHLO with Ines Powell Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a Mexican artist best know for her self-portraits.  Frida was the daughter of a Hungarian/Jewish man and a Spanish and Mexican woman.   Frida was a survivor of polio and originally planned to study medicine, but at the age of 18 she was seriously injured in a bus accident.  While recovering in bed, she began painting.  She made mostly self-portraits and still-lifes with bright colors and designs from Mexican folk art.   At 18, Frida married the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera who was 20 years her senior. Their marriage was very stormy with periods of separation and infidelities.  During her lifetime, she produced about 200 paintings, all related to her physical and emotional experiences.

You're invited to join us for complimentary refreshments as we host Authors Harrison Hunt and Bill Bleyer who will read from and discuss their book, LONG ISLAND AND THE CIVIL WAR: QUEENS, NASSAU AND SUFFOLK DURING THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES.  Books will be available for signing following the presentation.  This is one of several programs offered this fall, as we commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War.

Although no battles were fought on Long Island, the Civil War affected every one of the 101,000 people living in current-day Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties. More than 3,000 young men -- white and black -- answered their country’s call to preserve the Union by serving in the army or navy.  There were training camps for regiments on their way to the front, Confederate ships marauding within eight miles of Montauk Point, anti-war protests and a little-remembered draft riot in Jamaica in 1863. Local women raised thousands of dollars for Union hospitals, and Long Island companies manufactured uniforms, drums and medicines for the army. Long Island and the Civil War explores this fascinating story, from the 1860 presidential campaign that polarized the region to the wartime experiences of Long Islanders in the field and at home; and through the last local veteran’s death in 1945 to the history buffs who keep the memory of the conflict alive.

misc_none 2:00 PM PAGE TO SCREEN with Dr. Bill Thierfelder: DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Some books will be available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to the program.

Just in time for Halloween, we explore Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and its two Oscar-worthy incarnations.  In 1931, Percy Heath’s screenplay was nominated for Best Adaptation and Frederic March won the first of his two Academy Awards for Best Actor.  Ten years later (1941), Stevenson’s thriller again found its way to the screen, this time with Spenser Tracy, Ingrid Bergman, and Lana Turner, winning nominations for its cinematography, film editing, and musical score.  This is an opportunity to explore multiple adaptations and see which one “works best.”

Series Overview: Starting with Seventh Heaven, The Jazz Singer, and Glorious Betsy in 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated screenplays derived from another source for an Oscar. Exploring the art of adaptation decade by decade, this series is devoted to those remarkable Oscar-worthy screenplays created from a variety of novels, plays, and non-fiction. Dr. Bill Thierfelder examines the original work and then shows scenes from the film, inviting the audience to compare and contrast two works of art derived from the same source. Lecturer: Dr. Bill Thierfelder, Professor of Arts and Humanities, Dowling College (retired)

misc_none 2:00 PM EUGENE O'NEILL & THE DRAMA OF THE DYSFUNCTIONAL AMERICAN FAMILY with James Kolb Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

TWENTIETH CENTURY AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHT SERIES - EUGENE O'NEILL

Eugene O'Neill was born in a hotel, the son of an itinerant actor, and he grew up a member of a quintessentially dysfunctional American family.  His mother became morphine-addicted as a result of his difficult and painful birth. He shared an enthusiasm for alcohol with his brother and father. As a teenager he contracted tuberculosis, later haunted waterfront dives in a drunken stupor, married three times, producing two male children who both died untimely deaths, hastened by drugs and alcohol. His daughter married a man her father’s age—Charles Chaplin—and was permanently disowned by her father. In his mid-fifties he developed a debilitating palsy that effectively silenced him as a writer for the last ten years of his life. No wonder, suicide had been considered!  But Eugene O’Neill found a way out of his quandary through drama. Not surprising, his plays were principally in the tragic mode, and a number of them were intensely autobiographical. Even when not writing about his own parents and brother, O’Neill still found himself compelled to depict emotionally disaffected families. He described his playwriting as a kind of “exorcism” of old ghosts.This lecture will examine the major plays of O’Neill and the ways in which he was able to transform his unusual family circumstances, transcending the personal and autobiographical to create plays that speak to the rest of us. O’Neill made a daring leap. He believed that the problems he saw in his own dysfunctional family might serve as a metaphor for much of what he perceived as wrong in American culture and society.

Amedeo Modigliani (1884 - 1920) was an Italian artist of Jewish heritage, who was known as first a sculptor, then a painter associated with the School of Paris.
Modigliani was born in Livorno (historically referred to in English as Leghorn), in Northwestern Italy and began his artistic studies in Italy before moving to Paris in 1906. Influenced by the artists in his circle of friends and associates, including Picasso, Soutine, Brancusi, et al., Modigliani looked at ancient art and primitive art to develop a unique and idiosyncratic personal style. Modigliani died in Paris of tubercular meningitis, exacerbated by poverty, overworking, and excessive substance abuse, at the age of 35.

THE RESTORE POINT: THE SAFE AND SANE GUIDE TO A LIFETIME OF LEAN FOR KIDS, TEENS & FAMILIES

OBESITY IS THE NUMBER ONE HEALTH CHALLENGE FOR KIDS AND TEENS TODAY

THE RESTORE POINT was written by Dr. Frederick N. Lukash, who deals with the aftermath of childhood obesity every day. Children and teens are battling weight issues from alarmingly early ages. Obese kids and teens face risk factors like cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and are more likely to develop pre-diabetes. They are also more likely to suffer from social and psychological issues like bullying and low self-esteem. Like personal computers, our bodies are at risk for taking on the malware of processed foods, bad eating habits and increasingly sedentary “virtual” lives. THE RESTORE POINT is a metabolic “fix” that turns back your child or teen’s body to its original, healthy “factory fresh” version. This book of simple principles is designed specifically for overweight kids, teens, and their families. It’s easy-to-follow, basic guidelines have already helped kids and teens lose hundreds of pounds, healthfully and forever, preparing them for STRONG, LEAN LIVING for the rest of their lives.

misc_none 2:00 PM WONDERFUL WORLDS with Dr. Bill Thierfelder: MY LIFE AS A TURKEY Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History  

Based on a true story, this beautiful, charming, funny, sad, and thought-provoking film explores one of those rare moments when man and animal unwittingly become more closely linked than nature normally allows.  Deep in the wilds of Florida, Joe Hutto, wildlife artist and naturalist, was presented with a rare opportunity. It had long been his hope to learn about the secret world of wild turkeys by having young turkey poults imprint on him, but obtaining wild turkey eggs, or young poults, had proven to be next to impossible; so when he arrived home one day to find a bowl filled with wild turkey eggs on his doorstep, he went out immediately to obtain an incubator, determined to become their mother. It was an experience that would change his life in ways he could never have imagined.

misc_none 2:00 PM GIAN LORENZO BERNINI with Ines Powell Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) was the leading Italian sculptor of the 17th century and a most important architect as well.  Bernini was born in Naples, but he moved with his family to Rome at the age of seven.  He was a child prodigy, trained by his father in sculpture and completing his first bust by the age of ten.  Bernini was a very prolific artist whose art flourished in Rome under the patronage of popes and cardinals.  His numerous sculptural and architectural projects reveal innovative trends that opened the path for dramatic and eloquent vocabulary of the Baroque style.  His naturalistic sculptured pieces are characterized by their dynamic drama, tension and particular attention to textural effects.

misc_none 2:00 PM HOLLYWOOD MUSIC & DANCE with Dr. Kolb: JEANETTE MAC DONALD & NELSON EDDY Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy had separate and significant careers before and after uniting for a series of 8 MGM musicals, including Naughty Marietta (1935), Rose Marie (1936), Maytime (1937), The Girl of the Golden West (1938), Sweethearts (1938), New Moon (1940), Bitter Sweet (1940), and I Married an Angel (1942). Both Eddy and MacDonald had extensive careers as a baritone and soprano, singing on stage, in radio, and film. Both singers had voices that included a capacity to sing opera, which they also did. After their eight successful films they made several efforts to continue the partnership, but none of them worked out. Each singer had significant success in their separate films, both before and after their partnership.

misc_none 2:00 PM PAGE TO SCREEN with Dr. Bill Thierfelder: THE THIN MAN Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Some books will be available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to the program.

Dashiell Hammett’s page-turner, The Thin Man, is a grimly funny novel about a group of predatory monsters that was turned into a delicious comedy by Hollywood in 1934. As splendid as William Powell and Myrna Loy are, working with the Oscar-nominated screenplay by Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, they are quite different from Nick and Nora as portrayed in the novel. Hammett did not write a novel about a sophisticated couple who genteelly solve a murder while pouring cocktails and trading quips. He wrote a dark novel about an ex-detective who has married a wildly wealthy woman, and wants to spend the rest of his life managing her money. He is only faintly connected to the murders, having known the victim and his family briefly several years before, and wants nothing to do with the whole business. He is continually dragged in, however, and very nearly becomes a victim himself. Both the original and the adaptation have many fine things to offer—let’s see which you like better?

Series Overview: Starting with Seventh Heaven, The Jazz Singer, and Glorious Betsy in 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated screenplays derived from another source for an Oscar. Exploring the art of adaptation decade by decade, this series is devoted to those remarkable Oscar-worthy screenplays created from a variety of novels, plays, and non-fiction. Dr. Bill Thierfelder examines the original work and then shows scenes from the film, inviting the audience to compare and contrast two works of art derived from the same source. Lecturer: Dr. Bill Thierfelder, Professor of Arts and Humanities, Dowling College (retired)

misc_none 2:00 PM ART LECTURE with Thomas Germano: PICASSO SCULPTURE Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The MoMA, NYC is hosting a wide ranging survey of Pablo Picasso’s three dimensional works, the first such museum exhibition in the United States in forty-eight years (September 14, 2015–February 7, 2016). Professor Thomas Germano will introduce and discuss the works in the exhibition, Picasso's innovations and the influence his sculpture has had on others. Outside of the art world, Picasso's sculpture has never been as widely known as the artist's paintings and graphic works. Over the course of his long career, Picasso devoted himself to sculpture, using both traditional and unconventional materials and techniques. Unlike painting, in which he was formally trained and through which he made his living, sculpture occupied a uniquely personal and experimental approach for Picasso. He applied the freedom of a self-taught artist, uninhibited to break all the rules, thus he revolutionized its history through a lifelong commitment to constant reinvention. Picasso's sculpture was rarely shown outside of his studio, and it was only in 1966, through the large Paris retrospective, Hommage à Picasso, that the public became fully aware of this side of his work. The following year The Museum of Modern Art organized The Sculpture of Picasso in 1967, which until now was the first and only exhibition on this continent to display a large number of the artist’s sculptures. The MoMA exhibit will feature over 100 works including related drawings and studies for three-dimensional work.

misc_none 2:00 PM ARTHUR MILLER with Dr. Kolb Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

TWENTIETH CENTURY AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHT SERIES -- ARTHUR MILLER (1915-2005)

Along with Eugene O’Neill (1888-1953) and Tennessee Williams (1911-1983), Arthur Miller helped establish the blocks upon which great American playwriting have been founded. Inspired by the three major European inventors of dramatic realism in the late 19th Century, O’Neill, Williams and Miller were the first three American writers to find welcome homes in theatres around the world. O’Neill found his principal influence in the work of Swedish playwright, August Strindberg, while Williams found his in the work of the Russian, Anton Chekhov. It was the third founder of realism, the Norwegian Henrik Ibsen that provided the foundation for the work of Arthur Miller. Grounded in issues of family, social responsibility to one’s community, and the desire to succeed in a very commercial and competitive economic world, the plays of Arthur Miller bring the ordinary, familiar, everyday world to a remarkable new brightness and clarity. Plays as varied as All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, and After the Fall remind us that all people matter, not just those of great stature, and that, in fact, we are all capable of living out a “modern tragedy”—not necessarily that different from ancient Greek tragedy.

misc_none 2:00 PM PAGE TO SCREEN with Dr. Bill Thierfelder: GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Some books will be available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to the program.

Clocking in at barely 70 pages, James Hilton’s beautiful, sentimental novel Goodbye Mr. Chips, became a hit in 1939 thanks to its screenplay by R. C. Sherriff; an Oscar-winning performance by Robert Donat; and a beautiful, nominated turn by Greer Garson.  The premise is simple: An aging teacher and former headmaster of a boarding school recalls his career and his personal life over the decades.  But the tug at the heart—in both the novel and the film—is wonderful.  A terrific way to start the holiday season, both versions of this timeless tale teach us, once again, about the true meaning of love and devotion. 

Series Overview: Starting with Seventh Heaven, The Jazz Singer, and Glorious Betsy in 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated screenplays derived from another source for an Oscar. Exploring the art of adaptation decade by decade, this series is devoted to those remarkable Oscar-worthy screenplays created from a variety of novels, plays, and non-fiction. Dr. Bill Thierfelder examines the original work and then shows scenes from the film, inviting the audience to compare and contrast two works of art derived from the same source. Lecturer: Dr. Bill Thierfelder, Professor of Arts and Humanities, Dowling College (retired)

After a brief career on Broadway that included dancing the lead in Rodgers and Hart’s Pal Joey (1940) and choreographing Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane’s Best Foot Forward (1941) Kelly went West. In Hollywood, mostly with MGM, Gene Kelly developed as a major dance force in film as well as a fine choreographer and film director. Never being assigned a single dance partner, he nonetheless danced with the best, including Lucille Ball, Kathryn Grayson, Judy Garland, Vera-Ellen, Cyd Charisse, Leslie Caron, Mitzi Gaynor, Kay Kendall, Taina Elg, Frank Sinatra, and Fred Astaire!—many of them on more than one occasion. Some of his finest films include Anchors Aweigh (1945), Ziegfeld Follies (1946), Words and Music (1948), On the Town (1949), Summer Stock (1950), An American in Paris (1951), Singin’ in the Rain (1952), Brigadoon (1954), and Les Girls (1957).

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

In the heart of the Antarctic Peninsula there's a unique British post office staffed by a dedicated team and surrounded by jaw-dropping scenery that includes 3,000 gentoo penguins. Every summer, this particular colony of penguins returns from an intensive spell of deep sea fishing to its breeding grounds alongside the post office, trekking nearly two miles across sea ice and snow to get there when the weather is especially bad. They rush to find a partner, build a nest, lay eggs and protect those eggs from predators, and then finally get down to the task of raising their young. We see their four-month drama unfold against the backdrop of their lives—primarily, the comings and goings of cruise ships, bringing enthusiastic tourists to photograph the penguins and their chicks, and to buy postcards to send to friends and family around the world—from the Penguin Post Office.

misc_none 2:00 PM ART LECTURE with Thomas Germano: THOMAS HART BENTON Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Thomas Hart Benton (1889–1975) painted the America Today mural for New York's New School for Social Research in 1931, to adorn the school's boardroom in its International Style modernist building on West 12th Street. Showing a sweeping panorama of American life throughout the 1920s, America Today ranks among Benton's most renowned works and is one of the most remarkable accomplishments in American art of the period. The ten-panel mural is featured in a newly designed space at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that has carefully recreated the dimensions of the boardroom in which it originally hung. Benton's studies for America Today, are also presented in an adjacent gallery and they include character studies in pencil for figures that appear in the mural, as well as painted compositional studies for individual mural panels. Benton's then student Jackson Pollock appears as a model for the mural.The mural was recently gifted to the Metropolitan Museum of Art from the AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company when they began remodeling their entry lobby. Professor Thomas Germano will address the complex iconography of America Today while placing the work into the historic context of the era when it was created.

TWENTIETH CENTURY AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHT SERIES -- TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

He was brilliant and prolific, breathing life and passion into such memorable characters as Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski in his critically acclaimed A Streetcar Named Desire. And like them, he was troubled and self-destructive, an abuser of alcohol and drugs. He was awarded four Drama Critic Circle Awards, two Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He was derided by critics and blacklisted by Roman Catholic Cardinal Spellman, who condemned one of his scripts as “revolting, deplorable, morally repellent, offensive to Christian standards of decency.” He was Tennessee Williams, one of the greatest playwrights in American history. His first critical acclaim came in 1944 when The Glass Menagerie opened in Chicago and went to Broadway. It won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and, as a film, the New York Film Critics’ Circle Award. At the height of his career in the late 1940s and 1950s, Williams worked with the premier artists of the time, most notably Elia Kazan, the director for stage and screen productions of A Streetcar Named Desire, and the stage productions of Camino Real, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, and Sweet Bird of Youth. Just like Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams dramatized the many failures of the American family

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

One of the most frequently asked questions by audiences during a nature film is: How did they get that shot?  This program focuses on the making of a documentary about birds.  David Tennant narrates an exhilarating adventure, filmed over four years with help from camera-carrying birds, drones, paragliders and remote-control microflight planes. This wondrous aerial spectacle will make your spirits soar! To fly like a bird, the film crew called Earthflight not only captured remarkable images of wild flocks but also relied on some extraordinary relationships between people and birds. For some of the unique flying shots, members of the team became part of the flock. The birds followed wherever they went - even in a microlight over Edinburgh and London. In Africa, paragliders floated alongside wild vultures, while a model vulture carried a camera inside the flock. In South America, wild-living macaws, that were rescued as babies, still come back to visit their 'foster mother' as he travels along a jungle river. This wondrous aerial spectacle will make your spirits soar!

A phenomenal choreographer, and later director/choreographer, Bob Fosse lived on the edge—always challenging both his dancers and his audiences with his quirky, sexy approach to dance. From his earliest work on The Pajama Game (Steam Heat) and Damn Yankees (Whatever Lola Wants) he blossomed as he choreographed for the love of his life, Gwen Verdon, and found numerous opportunities to choreograph for her and others in shows such as Bells Are Ringing, New Girl in Town, Redhead, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Little Me, Sweet Charity, Pippin, Chicago, and Dancin’. Fosse also directed and choreographed for film and television and won the “triple crown” in 1973 with an Oscar for Cabaret, a Tony for Pippin, and an Emmy for Liza With a Z—a feat that no one else has ever accomplished. This presentation will examine his career through video excerpts.

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

To celebrate Women’s History Month, we look at the life of Rachel Carson.  She was a biologist for the federal government when she first noted the effects of the unregulated use of pesticides and herbicides, especially DDT. Magazines, afraid of losing advertising, refused to publish her articles. When Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1963, she was viciously attacked, called "an ignorant and hysterical woman." But her warning sparked a revolution in environmental policy and a new ecological consciousness.

OPERA & OPERETTA SERIES

In this “best [not!] of all possible worlds” nothing goes according to plan. Candide and his beloved, Cunegonde, are separated by war only to find each other again, merely to experience more catastrophes before they learn that the best world is one in which they will lower their expectations and make their garden grow. Excerpts from various video productions will be examined.

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History

Between the blue sky above us and the infinite blackness of space lies a frontier that scientists have only just begun to investigate. This program takes viewers on a spectacular exploration of the earth-space boundary zone that's home to some of nature's most puzzling and alluring phenomena: the shimmering aurora, streaking meteors, and fleeting flashes that shoot upwards from thunderclouds, known as sprites. Only discovered in 1989, sprites have eluded capture because they flicker into existence for a mere split-second--forty times faster than an eye blink. Combining advanced video technology with stunning sequences shot from the International Space Station, Dr. Thierfelder helps us probe the enigmas of the boundary zone and brings viewers an intriguing new viewpoint on their planet.

GREAT AMERICAN MUSICALS SERIES - KISS ME KATE by Cole Porter, Samuel and Bella Spewack

Kiss Me, Kate—described by Cole Porter as one of his two “perfect musicals” (the other was Anything Goes) opened in 1948. Sixty-seven years on it remains one of the finest comic adaptations of the works of Shakespeare as well as the epitome of the Broadway cliché known as the back-stage musical. With a musical score that ranges from operetta to saucy comedy, Kiss Me, Kate incorporates both the world of sentiment and romance and that of burlesque and vaudeville. This lecture, illustrated with video excerpts, will provide an opportunity to hear such well-known songs as ’, Another Show,” Why Can’t You Behave?, Wunderbar, So In Love, I Hate Men, Were Thine that Special Face, Too Darn Hot, Where Is the Life that Late I Led?, Always True to You in My Fashion, and Brush Up Your Shakespeare.

BALLET SERIES

First choreographed in Paris in 1832 by Filippo Taglioni for his daughter, Marie Taglioni, La Sylphide introduced Paris to the Romantic ballet, the Pointe-shoe, and the centrality of women to the dance. The choreography has mostly been lost, but a new version was created by a Danish dancer/choreographer, August Bournonville, who had been trained in Paris. Returning to Denmark to manage the Royal Danish Ballet, Bournonville created his version in 1836, a version that is still with us. Set in Scotland, the story is about James Ruben, a young man, engaged to be married, but who falls in love with a sylph, a mythical spirit of the air. Abandoning the bride-to-be, James pursues his sylph only to encounter disaster.

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

Based on Dr. Bill Thierfelder’s spotlight tours of the Hall of Human Origins at the American Museum of Natural History, this two-part presentations takes us back to10,000 BC, a time of cataclysmic change on Earth. Extreme climactic fluctuations hurled the planet into a minor ice age; megafauna like the saber-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth were suddenly becoming extinct; and early humans began to inhabit North America. Cold and hungry, their fragile communities undertook perilous hunting expeditions. The slaughter of a single mammoth, weighing nearly ten tons, could be the difference between survival and death.  These two presentations bring this unique and thrilling period to life—a time that made our world today possible.

Original Russian choreography was by Leonid Lavrovsky and Konstantin Sergeyev in 1940, followed by the English choreography of Frederick Ashton in 1955, John Cranko (1962), Sir Kenneth McMillan (1965, in the version which remains the most popular), John Neumeier (1971), Rudolf Nureyev (1977), Yuri Grigorovich (1979), Peter Martins (2007), and Alexi Ratmansky (2011) among many other adaptations and versions. One of Shakespeare’s most memorable works has inspired great dance.

GREAT AMERICAN MUSICALS SERIES -- SWEET CHARITY Music by Cy Coleman, Lyrics by Dorothy Fields, Book by Neil Simon
Fifty years ago, Sweet Charity opened on Broadway in 1966. It starred Gwen Verdon as Charity, and she was directed and choreographed by her husband, Bob Fosse. It was the great Cy Coleman’s second musical, three years after his Little Me, and it was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning only one for Fosse’s choreography. In 1969 Sweet Charity was filmed, with Fosse again directing and choreographing, but with Shirley MacLaine as Charity. Gwen Verdon helped coach MacLaine in the role. Numerous popular songs and dances emerged from the show, including Big Spender, Rich Man’s Frug, If My Friends Could See Me Now, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, and I’m a Brass Band.

NATURAL HISTORY SERIES - Dr. Thierfelder is a docent at the American Museum of Natural History 

Based on Dr. Bill Thierfelder’s spotlight tours of the Hall of Human Origins at the American Museum of Natural History, this two-part presentations takes us back to10,000 BC, a time of cataclysmic change on Earth. Extreme climactic fluctuations hurled the planet into a minor ice age; megafauna like the saber-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth were suddenly becoming extinct; and early humans began to inhabit North America. Cold and hungry, their fragile communities undertook perilous hunting expeditions. The slaughter of a single mammoth, weighing nearly ten tons, could be the difference between survival and death.  These two presentations bring this unique and thrilling period to life—a time that made our world today possible. If you missed Part I, you will still enjoy Part II.

misc_none 2:00 PM SHAKESPEARE & HIS FEMALE CHARACTERS with Dr. Kolb Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

SHAKESPEARE SERIES

Virtually every play by Shakespeare has at least one remarkable female character. Though acted by young boys, the femininity and power of the women in Shakespeare is unmistakable. There is an occasional bad woman in Shakespeare—Lady Macbeth and Hamlet’s mother Gertrude come to my mind—but most often the women are depicted as “others”—outside of stereotypical male society, and yet often, ironically, brighter than the men around them. Women suffer in some of his plays (Cordelia in King Lear, Desdemona in Othello, Ophelia in Hamlet), but they always maintain their integrity and intelligence. In many of the comedies the women are more mature and more intelligent than their male counterparts (Rosalind in As You Like It, Viola in Twelfth Night, and Mistress Ford in The Merry Wives of Windsor are just three examples of that).

 The Sound of Music shared the Tony Award for “Best Musical” with Fiorello, and also won an additional four Tonys, including one for Mary Martin. Its massive success actually arose as a result of the 1965 release of the film version, starring Julie Andrews. It has been revived once on Broadway in 1998. This presentation will look at both the stage and film versions of the work.

SHAKESPEARE SERIES

One of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, the character of Hamlet is a man struggling to come to terms with the role in which he has been cast—a father dead, a mother remarried to his uncle, a Kingdom competing with Norway, England and other countries for independence and respectability. “Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark” and it is Hamlet’s duty to figure out what has gone wrong and how to correct the ship of state. It is not an easy role and it takes him all five acts to find out how to resolve the problem. Virtually every famous actor has taken his shot at this enormous role.
