Theater honors its own at the annual Ostrander Awards
08/25/2019 9:04pm

It was a brilliant evening at the Ostranders for busy director Dennis Whitehead Darling.The annual theater award event sponsored by Memphis magazine and ArtsMemphis was held at the Orpheum Sunday honoring people and productions around the city, and he earned two nods for best direction, one for The Parchman Hour: Songs and Stories of the 61 Freedom Riders at Hattiloo Theatre and the other for Intimate Apparel at the University of Memphis.

Other distinctions included the Larry Riley Rising Star Award to Karl Robinson, the Gypsy Award to Brittany Church, and the Behind the Scenes Award given posthumously to Michael Lupfer. As in the past, financial support for the awards event was provided by Michael McLaren and Judge Diane Vescovo.

Herenton Rouses Women Supporters with Promise of Victory
08/25/2019 7:52pm

Willie Herenton wont be, as Gail floyd-Tyree called him on Saturday, the first boss to go back in that chair. Several others, including three-time Mayor Ed Crump who once literally owned the name Bosshave managed to get back into the office of Mayor after serving in it previously. But Herenton who, as several speakers including himself noted at a jam-packed Women for Herenton rally, was there from 1991 through 1999 agrees with Tyree, the executive director of Local 1377 of the AFSCME union, who gave him a rousing introduction. He, too, believes strongly that he can get back into City Hall in the role of Mayor. And there was much about Saturdays rally, held in a cavernous warehouse-sized space on South Third St., that could just about convince anybody. First, there were the numbers, upwards of a thousand women, all patently excited and happy to be there. Then there was the enthusiasm, simmering to begin with, and periodically fired into high decibels in the course of the event. Finally, there were the obvious signs of organization and preparation a forest of large-sized HERENTON signs handed out by helpers at appropriate moments, much in the manner of a national political convention. And, perhaps most convincingly, there were the several voter-registration tables on several sides of the hall, staffed by teams of women supporters who, from time to time, appeared deluged by new applicants. The event was so emotionally rousing as to remind onlookers of the first Herenton campaign in 1991, the one that, by a razor-thin margin of 142 votes over incumbent Dick Hackett, made Herenton the first elected black mayor in Memphis history. And, all by itself, it overpowered the memory of the half-hearted Herenton run for Congress against incumbent Steve Cohen in 2010, a Democratic primary race Herenton lost by a margin of 4 to 1. Both Herentons campaign manager, Robert Spence, and AFSCMEs Floyd-Tyree, generated some abundant advance energy on behalf of He renton. Said Spence: I heard our opponents theme. Meaning current Mayor Jim Strickland, running for reelection. Good for the basics. What is that When did somebody come to office saying the best they could do was mediocre ...We can do better than that, said Spence. And the basics dont even get good. Trash on the streets. Crime.We know who ran the city in an exceptional and extraordinary way ...The Lion is walking in the jungle, and they cant stop it. Spence was outdone and then some by Tyree, whose union is one of several that have endorsed the former Mayor. Saying that she was confirmed in my soul that this is divine intervention, Tyree concluded a passionate speech thusly: You cant be in the presence of Willie Herenton and not know hes a boss. Walks like a boss, talks like a boxx. Hes the boss. And: Where we taking our boss The answer came back: City Hall Expectations in the hall were so high than it would have been virtually impossible for Herenton himself not to deliver. And he did. After some pro forma early praise for his volunteer workers and an expression of his belief in the power of the spiritual realm, Herenton said, Theres power in the vote of women, too. We made history in 1991 when you elected Willie Herenton as the first African-American mayor.You didnt stop there. You re elected 1994, you reeled me 1997, in 2000, in 2004, and 2007. And guess what, youre going to elect me in 2019 Herenton was wrong. The actual reelection sequence was 1995, 1999, 2003, and 2007. But it hardly mattered. The women roared their agreement. Herenton continued. Someone asked me a question: Willie, can you do it I took them to the book:.Phillippians 4:13. There was a roar. I see weve got some church folks in here, said Herenton, who then quoted the scripture: You can do all things through Christ Sometimes the Lord makes the lowly overcome the highly, Herenton said. He made note of opponent Stricklands much-touted million-dollar campaign budget. Theyve got the they got the money power. But weve got people power. Thats whats going to take us over the top on October 3rd. This crime problem is deep. IT bothers me, this present admin is weak on crime. A lot of people in our community, they have no hope. Theyve given up. They have no inspiration. Weve got to embrace the values that our parents gave us. With a nod to his sister in the audience, he said, Our Mother taught us: Work. Education. Church. Work hard and you can be successful. Somehow or another weve got to bring those values back ...Theres so much hatred, so much jealousy, so much envy among our people ... I want you to know that this election is very critical to the future of our city. Youve asked the question of why am I going back into public service. Because its late in the evening for me. I want to tell you. I want you to hear me. Its late in the evening, but the God I serve is still using me. The whoop from the crowd was so great as to befit one who had freshly emerged from Sinai with brand new tablets. And indeed Herenton had a revelation of sorts for the women. But first there was another Biblical reference, one that might not have gone down well amid a group of feminists but one that scored well with this audience. When I look in the Bible, Herenton said, I see that first God made man, and he made women, the helpmate. There were great women in the Bible. Esther, Ruth could go on and on ...Since the beginning of Biblical times, there have been women of value,women of courage, women who nurtured civilization. And Today women are still relevant. I am appealing to you. You have been there for me in every election. Women have voted overwhelmingly for me. And Im asking you to do it again. The women shouted their assent. Then Herenton favored them with the great revelation: Before I take my seat.let me tell you what were going to ask you to do. This is real strategic. Early voting starts September 13. We have you guys in our database, and were going to reach out to you because I dont mind telling you part of what our strategy is. Were going to win this election in early voting. We gone have a caravan of buses. Were going to have vans called the Herenton Express. Well do an early voting like they have never seen before. And there was a warning: Let me tell you why we have to overwhelm in early voting. In Memphis, with technology they can steal the election. Were going to win so overwhelmingly that they cant steal this sledtion. We need to come out in record numbers. Apologizing for my emotinalism, Herenton said, I dont know how to do a fake . Ive just goto to be real. And, with another exhortation to go back to our values, he proclaimed, in the words of that old church song we used to sing, Victory is ours Altogether a boffo performance. If Herenton can continue to generate energy on this scale, Strickland, opponent Tami Sawyer, and the rest of the 11-candidate field will have something to take very seriously.

Looking Back at the Continuum Music Festival 2019
08/24/2019 7:00am

The Continuum Music Festival has come and gone once again, leaving many reeling from over two solid days of innovative sounds. Here, we present a slideshow of some highlights, by photographers Jamie Harmon and Jillian Baron. Your faithful correspondent was able to witness one highlight of the weekend, Opera Memphis staging of the modern opera As One, bycomposer Laura Kaminsky and librettists Kimberly Reed and Mark Campbell. Since its premier in 2014, this has become the most produced new opera in North America, and upon seeing the performance at Continuum, it was easy to see why. FeaturingBlythe Gaissert, mezzo-soprano, and Michael Kelly, baritone, singing with the Blueshift Ensemble String Quartet Marisa Polesky, Jessie Munson, Beth Luscombe, Alisa Horn, the piece tells a heart-wrenching saga of a transgender person grappling with her identity. The two singers orbit around each other throughout, each furthering the tale of a young boys struggle with, and gradual acceptance of, his often secret female identity. The effect of the two singers inhabiting different aspects of one life is indescribably captivating coupled with the string quartet, it is gripping. The music ranges from the hypnotic or pastoral pulses of childhood, to ever more strident and dissonant harmonies as the dual protagonist,Hannah after and Hannah before, confronts misunderstanding and threats from the world at large. For impressions of the remainder of the festival, I asked Paul Taylor, aka New Memphis Colorways, to describe his impressions of the festivals second day. Paul Taylor: There was a restorative yoga thing led by Sean Murphy and Anne Froning. That was a nice addition to both days. Sean does a really interesting looping with a bunch of wind instruments and delay pedals. Pretty cool. The Theremin-Lap Steel duo was super beautiful and tranquil. It was really refreshing and surprising. They took it in a direction that was totally not directly linked to the expected sounds of those instruments. Then I played my set, which was a re-imagining of my New Memphis Colorways Vignettes. Thats a project Im doing on social media this year, releasing little 60-second video clips that are intended to exist only on social media. Theyre not advertisements for anything else. Theyve just reached their destination and Im done with it when they wind up on social media, as art intended to live there. But I decided, for this show, to reanimate them into longer versions by mapping out sections of each of the videos to a MIDI controller, so I could trigger start points in the video and audio in each of them, and spontaneously improvise longer compositions. And that sort of created new chord changes and beats by utilizing different start points as they were not originally intended to be. And I think I survived relatively unscathed. Directly after me it was the Blueshift Ensemble playing music by ICEBERG. And the pieces they played were just astonishing. I was absolutely blown away at the breadth and scope of those tunes. Theyre really challenging, theyre really enlightening. And after that was Project Logic. That was a really interesting show, in that I think a lot of people expected Vernon Reid to just be a shredder, which he is, but man, he was playing the holy hell out of funky neo-soul repetitive groove guitar, and those guys were in a trance for, like, two hours straight. They had the audience completely entranced. And the venue and lights were fantastic. And it was pretty mind-blowing that, after the show, I saw some of my friends from the Unapologetic crew hanging out with MonoNeon, and I invited them over to see Crosstown Sound, the studio I run for Crosstown Arts, and we had a fun jam for about an hour. IMAKEMADBEATS, A Weirdo From Memphis, C Major, and Kid Maestro were there, and their young protege Eiloo was playing drums, sounding absolutely fantastic. I think the whole thing was a harbinger of shows to come, in terms of the level of musicianship. Thats of critical importance at the moment, because what Crosstown Arts and Continuum are doing is very much the hot, happening, hippest thing that could be done right now. Theyre doing it, and the fact that we were able to sync up with this moment was crucial.

Datadrums Celebrate LP Release At Shangri-La's Sweat Fest 5 on Saturday
08/23/2019 4:50pm

After a Decade & A Half, Long-Standing Memphis Band Issues Its Definitive Statement. I try to read it too deeply, everything becomes absurd, intones local guitarist and singer Chuck Vicious on asyndeta, the new record by his band Datadrums, before ramping up to double-time: Absurdity Its how you feel Its how you think Its how you believe Its on the last track of the album, but could have easily been the first, summing up as it does the feel of the entire work. You know I like it when you hollow out my soul, as one song announces. This is an LP that simultaneously laughs and rages at the arbitrary nature of existence. Conjuring up a sound and attitude reminiscent of the the Falls Mark E. Smith fronting the Stooges, with a bit of Clash-style chanting and rave-ups thrown in, the band rocks both earnestly and sardonically. TwentyTwentyTwentyTwenty NineNineNineNine sings Vicious, as the band pounds away. Somehow it works, with the Da-Da lyrics setting up an anything-goes atmosphere that promises and delivers surprises. Datadrums has been around for fourteen years now, and the power of this record is a testament to the staying power of the classic lineup of bass, drums and dual guitars. The band makes the most of such instrumentation, with perfectly dialed-in, crunchy guitar tones, all with the spontaneous energy that comes from being recorded live. There are occasional flourishes of synth or walkie-talkie vocals, as on Robot Repair, but this affair is grounded in a kick ass rock band. The bands rock solid 70s hard rock sound, complemented by oblique lyrics and an unfussy recording and production style, is a perfect setup for the wry observations that do cut through the murk. Perhaps keeping the bands sounds relevant over such a stretch of years lies behind the lyrics of Vacuume Sealed, both a desperate demand and a plea: Please dont throw me away. Ill be fresh another day...asyndeta by Datadrums is out now on Also Tapered Records. Release party at Shangri-La Records Sweat Fest 5, Saturday, August 24 at 2 pm. Other bands include The Sheiks, The Heels, Louise Page, Risky Whispers, the Tennessee Screamers, and James Walker.

Tony Isbell: Discovering The Humans
08/23/2019 3:40pm

Tony Isbell is drawn to certain kinds of plays, those, he says, with natural, honest, and truthful dialogue and relationships that are juicy. So when Michael Detroit, executive producer at Playhouse on the Square, asked him to direct The Humans, Isbell said hed give it a read. I immediately fell in love with it. Playwright Stephen Karam has a way with dialogue that is maybe the most naturalistic that Ive ever read or dealt with. The play runs at Circuit Playhouse through September 8th and has lured a remarkable cast. Jo Lynne Palmer, Christina Wellford Scott, Barclay Roberts, Lena Wallace Black, Brooke Papritz, and Steven Burk tell the story of a family that has gathered for Thanksgiving. Its a common storytelling device, but the execution of it is far from typical, Isbell says. On the surface it seems maybe familiar, like something weve seen before, he says. Its like one of those slice of life dramas where we see a family get together and spend time together. Theres a grandmother, parents, grown daughters, and one of the daughters new boyfriend. But this is not one of those plays where theres a big astounding revelation that people then spend the next hour fighting over. There are a lot of smaller revelations that people deal with, like people do in real life. For Isbell, this is the heart of the production, the relationships among characters. I am less interested as a director in a spectacle and you know, cool sets and costumes. I mean, yeah, I like all those things, but I try to provide the best possible ground for actors to really shine and really dig their teeth into something. And these people do. Theyre a blue collar, lower middle class family, recognizably Irish American Catholic hard-working stock. And there are pressures: an ailing parent, financial stresses, children who have strayed a bit from the church. The most important thing about this play in one way is the fact that these characters all love each other, Isbell says. They have some conflicts, they resolve them, they love each other, they make fun of each other, they laugh with each other, they occasionally cry with each other. To know Isbell is to appreciate his passion for theater. He is a co-founder of Quark Theatre its slogan is Small Plays About Big Ideas and as it embarks on its fourth year, it continues with its mission to get under the skin and make viewers feel and think and react. So while The Humansis not Quark fare, it is very much in that spirit. And you wont have to wait long for Quarks first show of the season. The Memphis premiere of Wakey Wakeyby Will Eno opens September 20th at TheatreSouth. For Isbell, having shows bunching up like this is next to normal. Ive averaged about three shows a year over the last 40 years, he says, which seems unbelievable, but thats kind of what Ive done. Thats a long commitment to directing and acting at venues all around the area, and his devotion was noted last year when he was honored with the Eugart Yerian Lifetime Achievement Award at the Ostrander ceremonies. He is quick to point out that hes not the only lifetime achiever in The Humans. Jo Lynne Palmer received the award a few years ago and Christina Wellford Scott will take it home this Sunday from this years Ostrander ceremonies. So Isbell is confident that audiences will be drawn in to the play and will take something home. It will probably leave you questioning some things and will probably have you discussing it with your companion saying, I think this was like this and then No, I think it was like this. Itll be that kind of thing. The Humans 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. The Circuit Playhouse, 51 South Cooper Street. Call 901 726-4656 or visit the website.
