Wherever there is organized government, there is satire. From nimble wordplay and homespun commentary of Twain and Will Rogers to lampoonery of SNL, satire makes mighty funny fodder of election seasons. Our ability to laugh at our nation and leaders helps transcend barriers. Experience the buffoonery of 150 years of political laughmakers like Mark Twain, Will Rogers, Art Buchwald, Stan Freberg, Tom Lehrer, Mort Sahl, George Carlin, Vaughn Meader, David Frye, Jackie Mason, Rich Little, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and more.

Remember the famous story of Oscar Hammerstein's wife who overheard a man praising Jerome Kern for writing Ol' Man River. Dorothy Hammerstein stepped forward and remarked, "Jerome Kern wrote "dum, dum dum-dum. My husband wrote Ol' Man River." Lyricists and lyrics are often the forgotten ingredient in great song. In this concert/lecture series, Joy explores shining lyrics and lyricists of vaudeville, cinema, stage, and popular recording of the 20th century. You'll leave with an appreciation of the excellence and memorability of the American popular song and the art of writing a great lyric.

Who knows what landscapes will pop up in this musical salute to the extraordinary settings of musicals on stage and film! While we enjoy the song and dance, we'll learn of the location and the way it was immortalized in music, the production, its creators, and behind-the-scenes trivia of these shows and their cast members. We hope to send you away from each class singing, dancing, and sporting a greater appreciation of the extraordinary places that have spawned our many beloved musical settings.

ECKERD ROAD SCHOLAR PROGRAMS PRESENTS: LIGHT AS AIR: MARGE AND GOWER CHAMPION
http://www.eckerd.edu/roadscholar/ • Eckerd College Road Scholar Programs, St. Petersburg, FL
Mon.-Wednesday, October 17-19, 2016, Dates/Times To Be Announced
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 ground breaking 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 heyday.

From the pulsating doom of Jaws to the futuristic orchestral flourishes of Star Wars to the sultry New Orleans jazz backdrop of A Streetcar Named Desire to the eerie off-pitch violins of Psycho to the incessant fear-inducing tribal drumming of King Kong, great movie scores have made the difference between a good film and a monumental one. Even before the development of sound on film, scores were created to make powerful film moments unforgettable. A brilliant score is not only memorable of melody, but underpins the film's message by expanding the characters and story with the perfect blend of passion and subtlety. Join us as we examine masterful scores from Hollywood's top composers, including Max Steiner, Bernard Hermann, Miklos Rosza, Alex North, Henry Mancini, Elmer Bernstein, John Williams, and more.

Comedian, actor, singer, producer, director, writer Jerry Lewis' credits appear limitless. Master of slapstick since the late 40s, aside his partner and friend Dean Martin, he celebrated a 90th birthday this year. New Jersey-born Joseph Levitch grew up in vaudeville and was singing on stage by age 5. But it was the partnership of Martin & Lewis that made him a household name. When their act broke up—both professionally and personally—both were forced to reinvent themselves. Lewis went on to direct, producer, write, and star in notable projects in addition to his impassioned charitable fund raising. At 90, he remains a tireless show business talent.

The unprecedented 72 Grammys and 18 Oscars for which he was nominated attest to the timelessness of Henry Mancini's music.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO JACKIE MASON ~ An Audio/Visual lecture with Joy Katzen-Guthrie
Tuesday, February 14, 2017: Noon brown bag lunch, 12:30-2 PM program, No Charge
http://bethamtampa.org/
With a father, grandfather, great-grandfather and three brothers who were rabbis, it's no shock that Yacov Moshe Maza of Sheboygan, WI was ordained a rabbi. Three years later, commenting that "Somebody in the family had to make a living," he resigned his rabbinical position to take up comedy. Jackie Mason is regarded as one of the greatest stand-up comedians of all time. Impeccable comic timing and a keen observation of modern day life—particularly politics—have fueled his nearly 60-year career in entertainment. It hasn't all been smooth sailing, but his passion and outspoken views have continuously laced his comic commentary.

The unprecedented 72 Grammys and 18 Oscars for which he was nominated attest to the timelessness of Henry Mancini's music. Whether writing, arranging, 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 are unforgettable. His scores transformed television and film, giving a third-dimensional life to the characters, stories, and emotions of motion pictures that lives on and on.

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 ground breaking 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 heyday.
