Chef Alton Brown will bring
culinary science to Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH - Alton Brown, "Iron Chef" host and television personality, takes his mix of humor and culinary science on the road with "Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour" showing at 8 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Byham Theater in the Cultural District.
Tickets start at $29.50 and go on sale Friday. A limited number of VIP tickets, which admit the bearer to a meet-and-greet with Brown, will be available.
Recently named Best Food TV Personality at The Munchies, Brown's tour includes stand-up comedy, a talks show format, multimedia lecture, live music and food experimentation. Ponchos will be involved. The show will offer an interactive component in which audience members will have the opportunity to serve as Brown's assistants on stage.
"I've been cultivating material for this show for about a decade so it'll feel pretty darned good to finally get it out of my head and onto a stage," said Brown. "I feel we've come up with some pretty amazing food demos, and the multi-media segments are solid, but I do have to say I'm a bit nervous about the singing parts."
Brown spent plenty of time in his mom's kitchen growing up, his real interest in food sparked in college when he discovered that girls who said "no" to dates sometimes said "yes" if he offered to cook for them.
After spending a decade behind the camera in the commercial industry, he headed to culinary school in hopes of one day creating a new kind of cooking show. "Good Eats," the show that Brown would go on to write, produce and host ran for 13 years on Food Network before making the jump to Cooking Channel where it airs to this day. Combining food science, pop culture, skit humor, cooking and the occasional belching puppet, "Good Eats" has millions of fans and garnered a Peabody Award for broadcast excellence in 2007.
Brown has also served as the culinary commentator of "Iron Chef America" for 11 seasons, and hosted "Next Iron Chef" for five.
In 2012 he joined the cast of "Food Network Star" as a mentor and one of his team members won. Brown took home the James Beard Award for top food show host in 2011. He has written seven books, the last three of which made the New York Times Best Sellers List.
Brown's newest venture is his touring stage show which combines live music, unorthodox culinary demonstrations, multi-media presentations and audience participation.
For information and tickets, visit www.TrustArts.org, call (412) 456-6666 or visit the Theater Square Box Office at 655 Penn Ave. To purchase 10 or more tickets at discounted rates, call (412) 471-6930.
The performance is a part of the Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series presented by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
Joseph Sisters play at Mountaineer,
Riverfront Park in Moundsville
CHESTER - The Joseph Sisters Band will perform at 7 p.m. on June 14 at the Sam Yanen Memorial Amphitheater at Moundsville Riverfront Park.
The band also will perform 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. on June 15 at the Mountaineer Race Track, Resort and Casino.
'Arsenic and Old Lace' at Brooke Hills
Playhouse Friday through Sunday
WELLSBURG - The Brooke Hills Playhouse production of Joseph Kesselring's comedy, "Arsenic and Old Lace," faced many challenges on its way to production, according to co-directors Julia Barnhart of Wellsburg and Charles Calabrese of Wintersville. The play runs at8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Reservations are available by calling (304) 737-3344.
The first challenge was casting the play. "It's always hard to cast a play with a lot of male characters," Calabrese said. "And this play calls for eleven males," he added. "On top of that, we had difficulty casting the Brewster sisters," he noted, referring to the sweet old lady serial killers who drive the plot of the classic comedy.
"We didn't finish casting the men until a couple of weeks into rehearsal, and I had to take the part of Rev. Dr. Harper myself, despite the fact that I was co-directing," Calabrese said. "The effort was worth it, because we ended up with the strongest cast we could imagine," he added.
The second challenge was assembling the period piece furniture, props and costumes for the show. "I went on the Internet and found authentic Victorian-era furniture pieces for a reasonable price," Barnhart said. "Cast members donated some props and costume pieces, and other people loaned them to us," she reported.
The biggest challenge was the vintage clothing, Victorian for the Brewster sisters and 1940s for the rest of the cast.
"We were fortunate that Diana Mendel and Nancy Longo, who play Abigail and Martha, have extensive costume collections of their own, and knew where to find other pieces," she observed. "Other cast members had their own resources, too. Most of the men had no problems putting together their costumes.
"We were able to rent authentic period police officer uniforms, but we had to make sure all the cast members understood the importance of not wearing anything that wasn't consistent with the period," she added.
A third challenge was building the set. Barnhart noted that the playhouse has only two paid interns this summer, Mason Barnhart of Wellsburg and Catie Givens of Weirton.
"We got a lot of help from volunteers who came in when they could to help with painting and carpentry," she noted. "With the combined efforts of the paid employees and volunteers, we had the set ready to use on opening night," she added.
"All the challenges leading up to the production were worth our efforts when we opened the show last Friday for our patrons," Calabrese said. "The Brooke Hills Playhouse exists to entertain our audiences, and 'Arsenic and Old Lace' is a great vehicle with which to do that," he added.
"Arsenic" will be followed by F. Andrew Leslie's adaptation of Shirley Jackson's best-selling thriller, "The Haunting of Hill House." June 21-23 and 28-30. July 12-14 and 19-21 will see the Bob Martin-Don McKellar-Lisa Lambert-Greg Morrison musical comedy, "The Drowsy Chaperone."
Joseph Robinette's acclaimed adaptation of C. S. Lewis' children's classic, "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the first book in Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia" saga, will be presented Aug. 2-4 and 9-11. Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore's farce, "Bathroom Humor," will be the last full-scale production of the season, to be presented Aug. 23-25, 30-31 and Sept. 1.
Auditions for "Bathroom Humor" and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" will be held Saturday at the playhouse, with tryouts for "Bathroom Humor" at 10 a.m. and for "Lion" at 1 p.m. No preparation is necessary. Actors will be asked to read script selections.
"Bathroom" requires an all-adult cast ranging in age from mid-20s to mid-50s, and "Lion" needs actors of all ages. Anyone unable to try out at the scheduled times should call the playhouse, at (304) 737-3344 by Friday to make other arrangements.
The summer season will end the weekend of Sept. 13-15, with a readers' theater production, with the title to be announced. All shows run 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.
Ticket prices for Brooke Hills Playhouse productions remain the same as in previous years: musicals are $12 for adults, $10 for students and senior citizens, and $8 for children younger than 12; and non-musicals are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for children younger than 12.
Libraries to gather at Weirton Event Center for Big Ol' Book sale, signing
WEIRTON - Even outside of the great state, sports fans know the fates of the biggest teams.
But what of the fortunes of local athletes whose legendary moments marked the scoreboards alongside those bigger rivals?
Bob Barnett, sports history professor at Marshall University, has stepped up to answer that question. His new book, "Hillside Fields: A History of Sports in West Virginia," gathers the stories of heroes and heartbreaks from one of early golf teams at Oakhurst Links to the Greenbrier Classic; from racially segregated sports to integrated teams; and from the days when West Virginia Wesleyan and Davis & Elkins beat the big boys in football to the championship teams at West Virginia University, Marshall, West Virginia State and West Liberty.
Just published in May, Hillside Fields will be among the local and regional books featured at the Big Ol' Book Sale and Vendor Mart, a one-of-a-kind summer event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 15, at the Weirton Event Center, 3322 East St.
The Big Ol' Book Sale and Vendor Mart brings together the Mary H. Weir, Swaney Memorial and Brooke County public libraries who will be selling new and used books, both hard cover and paperback, to support their missions and programs. As a part of the event, eight authors of regional interest will be on hand to sign copies of their works.
"Swaney Memorial Library is happy to be a part of this event to support the missions of libraries in the region," said Anna Raines, librarian. "Our library will be bringing a children's book sale of new books from Scholastic during the book sale. Many of these books are available at a very low cost and this type of sale helps the Library receive free books to add to our shelves from Scholastic."
A vendor mart, featuring regional merchandisers and crafters will run alongside the book sale, giving visitors a chance to sample and purchase regional and specialty foods, crafts and collectibles.
The Big Ol' Book Sale and Vendor Mart is the first cooperative book sale for the area's regional libraries and promises to offer some wonderful experiences, as well as unique books for purchase. Authors planning to attend the event include Anna Eagan Smucker, author of "No Star Nights," about growing up in a steel town; "Golden Delicious: A Cinderella Story," the tale of the Golden Delicious apple, which is said to have originated in West Virginia; David A. George, author of "Be Unique, Be You and Live," a semi-autobiographical, self-help book;
Carolyn Bradley, "A Gingerbread Heart," a story of caring for something special in our lives; Cindy McDonald, "The Unbridled Series," featuring "Deadly.Com" and "Against the Ropes"; JoAnn Davis, "Finding Pepper," book and DVD, a book about a little girl finding a puppy; Susan Spencer-Smith, "The Preacher Lady's Cookbook for the Hungry Heart," prayers and recipes collected from church suppers, picnics and pot lucks; Tom Zelinsky, "The Final Days of Weirton Steel," a recounting of the decline of the local steel industry; Dennis Jones, "Weirton, a Pageant of Nations," "History of Cove School" and other publications for the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center; and Sharon Reed Giambroni, "Tugger in the Country," a children's book about learning to thrive in a new environment.
