Jobsite Presents The Last Night of Ballyhoo
Aug 01
2014
Jobsite begins their 2014-15 season in partnership with the Tampa Jewish Community Center and Federation and Alfred Uhry’s award-winning The Last Night of Ballyhoo, playing Sept. 3-28, 2014, in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center where Jobsite is resident theater company.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo was commissioned for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, and was subsequently produced on Broadway, where it won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play. Its author, Alfred Uhry, previously won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Driving Miss Daisy, as well as an Academy Award for the screenplay -- the only playwright ever to win all three awards.

The play takes place during December, 1939. Gone with the Wind is about to premiere on the big screen and Hitler is marching on Poland. Adolph Freitag, his sister Boo, and nieces Lala and Sunny – a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor – are obsessed with preparing for Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ball sponsored by their elite country club. Adolph’s employee Joe Farkas is an eligible bachelor and an Eastern European Jew down from Brooklyn, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence within his own religious community. His presence prompts college student Sunny to examine intra-ethnic bias, her Jewish identity (or lack thereof), and the beliefs with which she’s been raised. The family gets pulled apart and mended back together with plenty of comedy, romance, and unexpected revelations along the way.

“… a delightful comedy freighted with an uncomfortable message.” — New York Post

Directed by acclaimed bay area performer, professor and A Simple Theater Artistic Director Gavin Hawk and starring Ned Averill-Snell, Ami Sallee, Suzy Devore, Katie Castonguay, Emily Belvo, Nathan Jokela and Jordan Foote, The Last Night of Ballyhoo showcases designs from Beth Tepe-Robertson (costumes), Kaylin Gess (lights), and Brian Smallheer (set).

This is the second collaboration between the JCC and Jobsite, the two organizations previously partnered on the spring 2013 performance of Wendy Graf’s Behind the Gates. As part of this partnership, a series of public forums will be held to discuss themes within and inspired by the play, not limited to Tampa’s Jewish community but inclusive of the greater community at large. Information on those forums as well as the private grand opening night performance hosted by the JCC will be made available soon.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo opens to the general public on Sept. 5 and runs through Sept. 28, 2014. Thu., Sept. 4 is a special private grand opening night hosted by the Tampa Jewish Community Center and Federation. All tickets to public performances are $28. Rush tickets for students, seniors, military and Theatre Tampa Bay members are $14 and are available as of 30 minutes prior to curtain with cash and valid ID at the Straz Ticket Office window. Rush tickets are subject to availability. A special preview performance will be held on Sept. 3, with all tickets available in advance for $14. Jobsite also has 2014-15 season tickets on sale now at a substantially reduced price than that of individual tickets.

Jobsite is funded in part by The State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, The Arts Council of Hillsborough County, The Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, The Gobioff Foundation, Creative Loafing, and Illumination Advertising. Jobsite is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all gifts made to Jobsite are tax deductible to the extent provided by law

Fl Orchestra Readies For New Season & Welcomes New Music Director
Jul 23
2014
The Florida Orchestra’s upcoming season is full of excitement with concerts featuring Ben Folds, Yo-Yo Ma, The Music of the Rolling Stones and Carmina Burana, among many other offerings. However, a big part of the excitement is that the orchestra has recently selected British conductor Michael Francis as its new music director. This decision was the culmination of a three-year search process with 17 guest conductors in multiple performances leading the orchestra in a variety of music.

Francis has a fascinating background as a versatile musician with a can-do attitude. He was a double bass player in the London Symphony Orchestra for several years, when he offered to jump onto the podium to conduct a rehearsal for a conductor who was delayed. Travel delays and illnesses presented this situation a few more times, and Michael Francis was there to save the day, not only in rehearsals but also in performances. Before you knew it, he was guest conducting around Europe and the US. Part of his journey included stepping in for indisposed conductors such as André Previn and even John Adams on a few days or even on a few hours notice, and making a reputation for himself with the likes of the San Francisco, Houston, Seattle and Vancouver symphonies, among numerous others.

Michael Francis was a big hit with Florida Orchestra audiences and, of course, with the orchestra itself. In addition to being a musician’s musician who played for many years in a world-class orchestra and who has a deep knowledge of the orchestral repertoire, Francis excelled as an engaging communicator and a charismatic individual. All this and a few other intangibles made it immediately apparent that there was a chemistry happening between the conductor and the orchestra, and Michael Francis was the unanimous choice to be the new music director.

Audiences can enjoy this chemistry at Francis’ first concerts on October 24 - 26, featuring Concertmaster Jeffrey Multer as the soloist in Barber’s gorgeous Violin Concerto on a program with Elgar’s majestic Symphony No. 1. But before that, Francis and his wife, who grew up here in Tampa Bay, will be looking for a home in the area for themselves and their first child, expected this December.

We invite the community to give Michael Francis a warm welcome this season. Find out about the orchestra’s many Masterworks, Pops, Rock, Coffee and Special concerts from October through May in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Most concerts offer affordable single-ticket prices of $15, $30 and $45, which go on sale August 11. For a free season brochure or to order a series package or single tickets, visit www.floridaorchestra.org or call 727.892.3337 or 1.800.662.7286, Mon-Fri, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A Note to All Just Plain Folks Members from Brian Austin Whitney

Hi Folks,

I am forgoing our normal newsletter format to ask you to do 3 things:

1. Net Neutrality: A Hilarious Call To Arms YOU NEED TO WATCH!

The first and most urgent reason is to get your attention to the most important and critical issue, which in part currently helps protect us against having all our OTHER freedoms taken away from us, and that involves THE INTERNET and NET NEUTRALITY!

Yes, I have written about this exhaustively as have a myriad of others (just type in Net Neutrality into Google and start reading) and we've worked with our partners at the Future of Music Coalition for years fighting for this issue with some early success, but a recent epic loss.

So... at this last chance moment, I want you to watch something that does the best job of explaining how serious this is, with a LOT of humor, and is the best I have seen anyone do it so far. The link goes to the Last Week Tonight segment from John Oliver. You'll laugh a lot, and perhaps it will all finally make sense to you if it hasn't in the past.

So PLEASE take the time to watch it. We have no vested interest in it beyond helping all of us maintain this free and open Internet we all depend on:

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbOEoRrHyU

In our case it's essentially pre-ordering the record or other cool incentives to provide the money for touring. Then we will personally send you copies of the record and other exclusive goodies. There are many levels of participation available.

Again, please check it out and Help The Mojo Gurus Save Rock ’N’ Roll at:
