The unprecedented 72 Grammys and 18 Oscars for which he was nominated attest to the timelessness of Henry Mancini's music. Whether writing, arranging, conducting, or concertizing jazz-infused themes of Peter Gunn and The Pink Panther to lush symphonic artistry of Love Story and Days of Wine and Roses, Mancini's themes simply are unforgettable. His scores transformed television and film, giving a third-dimensional life to the characters, stories, and emotions of motion pictures that will live on and on

His colleagues consistently referred to him as the most talented entertainer of the 20th century, at home acting, singing, dancing, emceeing, and playing a variety of musical instruments. A superstar by his teenage years, Mickey Rooney experienced excessive rises and falls in a career spanning an astonishing 8 decades and some 300 films. From childhood vaudeville and film debuts through decades of film, television, and stage success and 8 marriages, he never blinked. Earning millions, he nevertheless declared bankruptcy in 1962 and the loss of virtually all his savings by the time he died this year at 93. We will get to know this last living superstar of the era of the great studios, a prelude to Joy's Mickey-Rooney-Judy Garland instrospective course in November.

The remarkable film, television, and stage careers of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland were punctuated by prolific talent and energy, the adulation of an adoring worldwide public, and heartwrenching, tumultnous public and private rises and falls. Through it all, these two remained dear friends with a unique understanding of one another's talents and needs as well as the astonishing demands of the studio system they helped building. In Hollywood's fantasy world, any challenge could be overcome by putting on a show. In reality, unhappy marriages, poor management, financial declines, physicial exhaustion, and substance abuse plagued them continuously. The heart and soul of their genius continue to inspire and uplift generation after generation.

A living legend, an example of the durability of show business in a nearly 7-decade career in theatre, and the leading interpreter of the wry, often cynical view of life from the pen of Stephen Sondheim, she began her career in the 1940's and floated seamlessly bewteen television, film, concert, and stage. But the theatre was her home base. Whether comic musicals, drama, or cabaret, she was—to quote the New York Times—"the brassy, tart-tongued" actress and singer with the "whisky voice, seen-it-all manner, and blunt charisma of a star." Indeed, Stritch dpitomized stardom. Adored by fans worldwide, she lived the roles she played: impatient, tough, boozing, devastating—and beloved. One of the last of a generation, the theatre will never see another like her.

Frequently compared to Astaire & Rogers, the immensely popular husband and wife team of Marge & Gower Champion created some of the most visually stunning, memorable and groundbreaking dance scenes in lavish 1950's MGM musicals like Show Boat, Lovely To Look At, Three For the Road, and Jupiter's Darling. But their careers embraced so much more, with critically acclaimed and innovative dance in musical revue, musical comedy, and musical drama on stage and television as well as film. Additionally, each enjoyed successful individual careers aside of their work together. Gower would become one of the most successful and influential Broadway Director-Choreographers during America's Golden Age of Musicals, crafting the stage design and movement of powerhouse shows such as Bye Bye Birdie, Carnival, Hello, Dolly!, and 42nd Street. A master of the form, he would join the ranks of most revered performer/choreographers like Jerome Robbins, Bob Fosse, and Michael Bennett. Marge would appear in film and would serve as a choreographer and consultant to acclaimed productions such as Queen of the Stardust Ballroom. Their story is the story of the American musical on film and stage during its heydey.

Julia Roberts' breakthroughs in Steel Magnolias and Pretty Woman set the stage—literally and figuratively—for her to become one of the highest-earning and most acknowledged stars of all time. Two gifted women actors who have changed the world.

"Laughter is the closest distance between two people," said master of mirth Victor Borge. Four of the 20th century's funniest performers parodied the pomposity of classical masterworks. Borge escaped the Nazis, bringing his joy of life to the world's attention. English singer-comedian Anna Russell's savvy satires of Gilbert and Sullivan and Wanger are beloved worldwide. Harvard mathematician Tom Lehrer's pithy parodies mock everything from pigeons in the park to the Vatican. And nobody else knocked out nonsense like Danny Kaye's physical foolishness and playful pantomimes. Four sessions of not-to-be-missed fun.

CONGREGATION BETH AM OF TAMPA PRESENTS: THE GREAT INNOVATORS: LEGENDARY JEWISH MUSICAL PERFORMER/CREATORS SUMMER SERIES
THURSDAYS, JUNE 4-25, 2015 • 7-9 PM with 15-minute breaks with refreshments, Free
http://bethamtampa.org/
Thursday, June 4, 2015 • 7-9 PM - REMEMBERING THE GREAT DANE ... VICTOR BORGE – Beloved world-renowned pianist and humorist Victor Borge, claimed, "Laughter is the closest distance between people." One of the 20th century's funniest performers, he devoted his career to making light of the pomposity and seriousness of the classic masters and their music. A brilliant concert pianist, he escaped Denmark shortly before the country was occupied by Nazi Germany. Arriving in the US with only a few dollars, he quickly found his way — through talent, willpower, and joy in living — toward making a worldwide impact in the entertainment world. Experience his enormous gifts through his story and his concerts. Be prepared to leave with your sides aching! No charge, all are welcome
Thursday, June 11, 2015 • 7-9 PM - PERFECTIONIST OF THE DANCE: JEROME ROBBINS - In the 40's as Hollywood and Broadway extended the role of dance, a new generation of influential young choreographers joined a young generation of writers and producers to strage new dance extravaganza. Among the greatest masters of modern dance, Robbins developed a signature style for the next generation of notable musicals. With stylized social ballet and complex dance extravanganza, Robbins' choreography was not an addition to the musical—it was the very essence of the emotion itself. In productions such as On the Town, West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof, dance embodies joy, discovery, fear, grief, confusion, anger, hope. Robbins recognized limitless possibilities of dance to convey the raw power of the modern musical. No charge, all are welcome.
Thursday, June 18, 2015 • 7-9 PM - LEONARD BERNSTEIN: INSIGHT AND INSPIRATION – One of America’s most influential figures in 20th century music, Leonard Bernstein's fascinating life as pianist, composer, orchestrator, conductor, concert artist, and lecturer/teacher deserves a closer look. From his whirlwind beginnings as conductor of the New York Philharmonic to his creations for theatre, film, and concert hall to his relationship with Israel and Jewish music and his inspirational concert at the Berlin Wall, the artist's life and gifts will be the focus of our tribute. No charge, all are welcome
Thursday, June 25, 2015 • 7-9 PM - THE WAY WE WERE: THE MARVIN HAMLISCH ERA – As the Golden Era of the American musical came to a close after the 50's, the decades to follow brought a shift in musical attitudes. The result was a period of self-examination and experimentation within both conventional and non-conventional themes, stretching the boundaries of American musical theatre beyond anything the genre had experienced. Among the new generation of musical creators was the gifted young genius, Marvin Hamlisch. His film themes and scores—The Way We Were, The Sting, A Chorus Line among them—were the very representation of their time. One of only three composers to win an Oscar, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy, Mahlisch also received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for A Chorus Line in 1975. He and Richard Rodgers are the only people to win all five awards. Discover the man behind the music in this biographical tribute. No charge, all are welcome.
