Stephen Berkoff’s Messiah: Scenes from a Crucifixion claims to be outré, obscene and blasphemous, which at times it certainly is. Lines like Jesus’s “Whatever happens, don’t let them break my legs or I’m really fucked” are proof positive that this is a piece of work is aimed at shocking an audience, conditioned, believers and heathens alike, to the conventional ramblings of Christian doctrine. Mel Gibson’s The Passion of The Christ was as controversial as Playdays compared to this reading of history’s most notorious homicide. The gospel according to Berkoff goes as follows: Jesus is a man intent on fulfilling the prophecies of the Old Testament, but understands that “The Messiah will never come, so we have to create one.” This requires feigning his own gory demise only to “rise” again three days later, thus providing the credulous with a presaged redeemer of mankind. The establishment of a hero-cult is certified when it goes wrong and Jesus dies, but the disciples stick to their conspiratorial story and a religion is born. This is, at times, literary masturbation of the basest variety, more jerk-off than Berkoff. Some of the dialogue is simply dreadful. The man who sees himself as the saviour of British theatre, Berkoff should adopt a mantra: “I am not the Messiah” might be a good place to start. Yet the indulgences of a writer must not be blamed on those attempting to perform, and so Scenes from a Crucifixion is redeemed by the verve of the acting and intelligent use of space, exploiting the full gallery recesses of the OFS. The excellent Kerry Norman as JC is a zealous, Machiavellian politician pre-execution, but struggles a little on “The big ‘x’” (who said being crucified was easy?). His performance is supported by a chorus which has the suppleness to portray Jewish clerics, disciples and Roman soldiers with equal proficiency. Also to savour are the muscular histrionics of a Judas who looks like he spent his thirty pieces of silver on Creatine, and Tom Richards’ appearance as an extraordinary, lascivious Caiaphas. The portrayal of Satan is so hackneyed (red shirt, “menacing” cockney accent, forked stubble) that the only surprises are the absence of attendant familiars and pronged tail. Having said this, Tai Shan Ling, as the dark one, is fabulously energetic and seductively, malevolently lucid, in another arresting performance from one of Oxford’s premier players. I wouldn’t sell my soul to Beelzebub to see this, but if you resist the temptation to see only Berkoff’s mediocrity in Lisa Maule’s production, you should be repaid with a decent enough evening.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004
JOHN MILAN SEBIK To the Editor:I walk around town and talk to people on a daily basis. I ask them how they are and what bothers them about local politics in general. Most people say the same thing over and over. Everyone makes promises while they are running and then once they get into office, the promises made are forgotten.Look at the past two administrations before Mayor James Davis and ask yourself this, are we better off today? Is the city better off? How are the financials of the city? Do we have an open and honest government? Is there economic activity happening around town? Are new, sustainable businesses opening up? How is the real estate market? Are property values going up? How about the arts community? How about Broadway? Do we feel better with an elected Board of Education? Were promises kept?All in all, as a resident of Bayonne, I personally see our town hitting on all cylinders. Look at City Hall, it has moved from a closed atmosphere and one of fear to a welcoming environment to all. Anyone at all can walk in City Hall and actually feel welcomed. This is exactly the vibe one would want a city government to have. We have a very responsive council that consistently provides assistance to all residents as well as the mayor, who has a popular open door policy.The city has finally started bringing in new yearly recurring revenue and not one shot deals, to actually cut the structural deficit. This fact alone proves that this government alone not only cares about Bayonne now financially, but for future generations. This administration has finally started paying off past governments’ credit card bill.We see an active and vibrant community responding to monthly cultural events held by not only the city but various sponsors and new businesses around town. We see economic activity all over the city from construction to small businesses to new restaurants. We also see most parks that have been redone including a new special needs park down 16th St.The average sales price for a property sold in Bayonne has risen approximately 40 percent from 2014 based on the Zillow average property value index. Bayonne finally has a positive buzz and great things are happening all around town. Bayonne property values have not risen this much in the last 10 years. We also see all the missing teeth or empty storefronts being redone and rented all across Broadway. Slow and steady Bayonne is being rebranded, revitalized and rebuilt. Thank you to the administration that has shown progress and not just empty platitudes.
Over the last two nights, March 17-18, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh put together some serious star power for a run of shows at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Lesh celebrated his 76th birthday on March 15th, bringing along Warren Haynes, Rob Barraco, John Molo and Lettuce/Soulive guitarist, Eric Krasno. Krasno held his own as the newcomer to the group (though he has played as a “Friend” before), though fans were quite excited as Jimmy Herring returned to the lineup for the two-night stand. Herring, Haynes, Barraco and Molo are “The Q,” one of Lesh’s longest-standing lineups in the days before Furthur.For those who attended, “The Q” certainly felt reminiscent of old times. Thankfully, photographer Bill Kelly was on the scene to capture some of the moments of this run.

On May 12th, Head for the Hills, the Colorado newgrass quartet, will release their latest album, Potions and Poisons. The album will be the group’s fourth studio album following the 2013 release of Blue Ruin. The group, composed of Adam Kinghorn (Guitar), Joe Lessard (Violin), Matt Loewen (Bass), and Sam Parks (Mandolin), has just released a brand new music video for “Bitter Black Coffee,” a track off the upcoming Potions and Poisons.“Bitter Black Coffee,” which was written by Head for the Hills’ Adam Kinghorn, and its accompanying video is a mournful, longing ode to regretful nights with former flames and their repercussions come sunrise. The video for this latest release by Head for the Hills is shot in black and white and features shots of a man alone at a table, filmed from overhead, as time throughout the day passes; the members of Head for the Hills playing the wistful song together; and the woman who’s clearly on the man’s mind. The gritty video was directed by bassist Matt Loewen and produced by the band, making them the artistic force behind both the song and the moving video that evokes film noir in its stylings.You can check out the Live For Live Music’s video premiere of Head for the Hill’s “Bitter Black Coffee” below along with the lyrics from the song. Pre-sale for Potions and Poisons ends this Friday, May 4th, ahead of its May 12th release so make sure to order your copy now here.

During ESPN’s Around The Horn today, the show led by Tony Reali showed some love to Umphrey’s McGee, using Umphrey’s new single, “The Silent Type”, off of their upcoming album it’s not us as outro music during a break. During the show, Reali poked fun at the song due to its low volume on air, noting “Fellas, we gotta call it ‘The Muted’ if this is around the horn. Come on now!”However, Reali and Umphrey’s McGee have a longstanding great relationship, especially considering that the band’s members are such huge sports fans. Around The Horn has been using a theme song revamped by the Chicago prog jammers since 2014, and Reali has also sat in with the band a handful of times over the years.You can check out the clip from Around The Horn below, which UM posted on their Twitter page earlier this morning.

Live Nation and AEG have been in an ongoing turf war over the past few years, with both of the giant entertainment companies continuing to snap up music venues across the country and consolidate their presence in major markets. Today, the AEG-owned concert promotion company, Bowery Presents, announced that it has acquired a new music venue: Philadelphia’s iconic Electric Factory, the standing-room-only concert hall with a capacity of 2,500 to 3,000 people that has been operating at its current location since 1995.Bowery Presents’ acquisition of the Electric Factory serves as an example of yet another East Coast music venue to fall under the control of AEG or Live Nation in recent years. In fact, the concert promotion company Bowery Presents was itself acquired by AEG in 2016, bringing with it a number of venues in New York as well as the ability to promote a number of venues in Philly, Boston, Portland (Maine), Albany, New Orleans, and Atlanta—a move that solidified AEG as the number one concert promoter in New York City and increasingly stronger concert-promoting presence across the East Coast.Per a press release, Bowery Presents has temporarily renamed the Electric Factory the “North Seventh,” after seemingly encountering trademark issues with Live Nation, who owns the venue’s trademark and logos. Bowery Presents hopes to reach out to fans to crowdsource a permanent, new name for their recently acquired venue via a venue-naming contest. Per a press release,The Bowery Presents, the leading concert promotion and venue management company in the Northeast, announced today the acquisition of Electric Factory in Northern Liberties, further expanding its venue presence in Philadelphia. The Bowery Presents aims to honor the history and preserve the soul of the venue by maintaining its current aesthetic and continuing to book top-tier acts, with no disruptions in existing programming.Use of the legendary Electric Factory name has been refused by Live Nation, the owners of the venue’s trademark and logos. As such, The Bowery Presents has temporarily named the venue “North Seventh” and turns to Philadelphia’s robust music community to crowdsource a permanent new moniker. A public naming contest will accept submissions now through September 30, 2018. The winner will receive two complimentary tickets to every show at the venue through 2020. For more information and to submit an entry to the naming contest, visit NorthSeventhPhilly.com.The Bowery Presents first entered Philadelphia through a valued partnership with R5 Productions, together opening Union Transfer in 2011 and Boot & Saddle in 2013. Following a 2016 merger with AEG Presents, The Bowery Presents expanded its reach to the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, Keswick Theatre and Underground Arts, among other area venues through a mix of ownership and booking agreements. Through this recent acquisition, the 2,700 capacity “North Seventh” joins The Bowery Presents’ family of venues in Philadelphia ranging from 150 to 14,000 capacity.Currently, the “North Seventh” has shows by Social Distortion, Thrice/The Bronx, Slash, Ja Rule/Method Man & Redman, CHVRCHES, Minus the Bear, Clutch, Kamasi Washington, H.E.R., Thom Yorke, Ministry, and more on its upcoming calendar.

Dave Helmly, head of strategic development for Broadcast at Adobe®, has forged a distinguished career in video and imaging, helping professional creators nail their workflows.As a #DellInsideCircle member, Dave uses Dell Precision mobile workstations daily with his team of 15 international field representatives. We sat down with him to hear his thoughts on the role of technology in video and image editing, which technologies get him most excited, and how he expects the industry to evolve. Matt: What technology really excites you? Are there specific trends you are seeing?Dave: Our team’s daily job is more about being trusted advisors to our customers who are looking to spend their money wisely to create fast and solid edit stations. Most of my test projects are based on real-world work from customers looking to increase their output to post and deliver content faster. I use these projects to test workflows and ensure speed and stability for the work they need to do now – and in some cases the work they will need to do in the future.Technology like Intel’s Thunderbolt™ has been a game changer in our industry from fast backups to simplifying local RAID storage setups to faster networking for laptops. Other technology like VR 360 video was discovered early on and became a feature set in our products. Usage of VR has shifted from being a consumer visual walkthrough tool to a professional one. AI technologies, like our own Adobe Sensei™, are advancing at lightning speed every month. We are working on some very cool AI tech for video creators. Check out the sneak peek of Project FastMask from Adobe MAX a few years ago: It’s available now in beta in After Effects® as Roto Brush 2.The majority of my day-to-day customers are leaders in the US media and broadcast space. I also work with Hollywood editors, well known YouTubers, and leading film schools. The biggest trend and number one topic on any given day since the pandemic hit is remote editing. I see HDR and 10-bit displays becoming the norm the same way HD video took over a few years ago. Nearly all of my customers have stated that delivering HDR content is a top priority for them and they need the right tools and workflows to ensure they can update their supply chains with HDR content. As a result, you’ll see more enhanced and simpler HDR video workflows from us. Matt: As a #DellInsideCircle member, you recently tried out the Precision 5750 mobile workstation. What were your first impressions? Dave: The design is sleek, slim, and lightweight. It’s hard to believe it’s a 17-inch because it fits into my 15-inch laptop case with ease. It’s a powerhouse; I was also able to run several test projects in Adobe Premiere® Pro with 4K edits and 8K edits. I was using a Dell 5530 2-in-1, and I still love that machine, but there’s no question that this one is much faster. I would recommend it to any peers in my field.Dave Helmly working on Adobe Creative Cloud with a Dell Precision workstation in his studioMatt: If you had $5,000 to build an at-home editing studio, what would you invest in? Dave: If I were to advise someone on what to consider within their budget, other than your workstation and Adobe Creative Cloud®, I’d suggest a standup desk that adjusts up and down, a high-end webcam like a Sony or Canon DSLR for web meetings – as a video editor, your image is everything, an Ultrawide HDR Display, and Thunderbolt 3 raid for local projects.If you have another $5,000, then definitely upgrade to the main editing hardware. Newer technologies like NVMe drives, NVIDIA RTX GPUs, and 10th Gen Intel® Core™ or Xeon® processors would benefit any workflow.Matt: You have been in the industry for over 35 years and with Adobe for almost 25 years. What key technologies have been industry gamechangers?Dave: Both Photoshop® and Premiere have been around for 30 years and have created the imaging and video standards that the industry has been built around. Many of the advancements we see around digital cameras, HDR displays, compute power, drive access and speeds, drive capacity, and real-time GPU effects are a direct result of the need to create faster and do work that stands out from the crowd. You see this every day on YouTube where successful creators deliver high quality videos that have now reached 8K frame size and playback. They are setting the pace for what you’ll see from broadcasters. Matt: Any predictions for the industry?Dave: Overall, remote editing has been quite successful for most customers but the lack of face-to-face meetings in the office has made working as a team more difficult. The number one thing I hear customers wish for is better collaboration tools for remote team editing so that multiple people can simultaneously edit or review the same project. I believe cloud-based workflows will become the norm for film and broadcast editing. It will happen fast, within two to three years. Cloud-based rendering and delivery will shorten the time to the supply chain and bring overall costs down as the cost of cloud compute equals out. We will still require high-end local workstations as the risk of moving to the cloud 100% for compute is too high. Currently, it’s more about having a seamless connection to the cloud. Matt: Who are your favorite creators to follow on social media and who should we watch out for?Dave: The first one that comes to mind is Devin Graham (Devin Supertramp). I met him early on in his career and introduced him to RED Camera several years ago. As a result, I’m a better RED shooter myself. Devin always shares his workflow on his Behind-the-Scenes channel and answers questions on shooting techniques and which lens to use. Peter Hollens is another one to watch. He has a fresh look to his edits that just pull you into his world. On the tech side – it’s hard to match Linus Tech Tips. I have a lot of respect for him and his team’s passion for advancements in technology. He can be brutal to software companies like ours, but he drives us to do better in terms of performance and stability. Matt: What’s your most prized possession?Dave: This one is easy. It’s relationships with like-minded people. Engaging in tech conversations with customers, peers, and friends make Mondays okay.
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australia’s prime minister says there could be more targeted economic relief for businesses struggling with pandemic restrictions after Parliament resumed for the first time in 2021. Tourism, aviation and hospitality are among the industries calling for extended financial help after pandemic wage subsidies are due to end on March 31. With opposition lawmakers calling for more business support, Prime Minister Scott Morrison did not rule out his government providing extra funding. Deputy opposition leader Richard Marles said businesses in tourism and aviation would go under without targeted help.
