Dare I? Oh Why Not!

Halloween5080wm

Halloween morning I dressed in jeans, a heavy long sleeve shirt with black and white stripes, a watch jacket, and outrageous pirate hat. All of these items came from Bananas, a vintage clothing store on Main Street. Captain Fred’s first adventure of the day was a medical appointment at Addison gilbert Hospital. As I got off the bus, I almost chickened out with the hat, but decided to just suck it in and go for it.

I got a lot of attention walking through the lobby, down the hall, and in the elevator. Everyone who passed by smiled, and most said “Happy Halloween” or “Trick or Treat.” Once on the fourth floor, oncology, I was greeted by a witch, and signed in by a Thing with blue hair. I had found kindred spirits on my favorite floor. Of course, we had to take a photo. Nurse Kristen is the witch on my right, and Myriah, of departmental administration, is the Thing on my left. Whether Witch or Thing, they are great people providing exceptional care to me and all of their patients.

Reserved for high end clients, this titanium (not plastic) card guarantees extras such as private jet services, personal concierges, business, savings and much more. The cost of the privilege to use this card is $2,500 a year.

The card was returned to the rightful owner, a prominent Gloucester resident. 

Cole, I applaud you on your integrity and instilling my confidence in our young generation.

Gloucester Stage’s North Shore Fish will touch you deeply

Israel Horowitz’s Pulitzer-nominated “North Shore Fish” premiered at Gloucester Stage in 1986, has since been produced off Broadway in New York City, then all over the world, adapted into a TV movie in 1997 and is back at Gloucester Stage again with an excellent cast, whose performances will have you riveted from the very first scene.

Yes, it’s fun to hear the names of familiar Gloucester places batted about by actors on a stage.  And the fish processing set, replete with real lockers, production line, shrink wrapper and plenty of doors to slam will take anyone who’s ever labored in food service or production right back to work.  Plus, I have to admit I was eager to see Tip O’Neill’s grandson,  Thomas Phillip O’Neill in one of the lead roles as Porker.

While any of these, along with the fact that many consider North Shore Fish to be one of Israel Horowitz’s best plays, would be reason enough go see it, the REAL reason is that Gloucester Stage’s production of North Shore Fish will make you think and feel in ways you’ve never experienced before.  That’s what good theatre does — and this is theatre at its best.

According to Horovitz, “North Shore Fish, to my thinking, is a play about love and dignity in the workplace.”  You might ask yourself, well what else is there?  What else do we really want besides love and dignity and work that matters?  North Shore Fish will help you appreciate what you have and question your priorities.  And you’ll realize that this drama doesn’t happen only in Gloucester.  That’s why North Shore Fish has universal appeal.

If you’re a Cape Ann Resident, you can see this play for a mere twenty bucks this Wednesday or Thursday at 8pm.  North Shore Fish only runs through this Sunday, August 4.  It would be a shame if you missed it.  Call box office at 978-281-4433 for tickets.

Are you a sculptor? Here’s a great opportunity!

This just in from Mark McDonough (you saw it FIRST on GMG, baby!)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Serenitee Restaurant Group Commissions Three Sculptural Light Fixtures for Next Restaurant

Gloucester, MA  Sept 10, 2012  Calling all North Shore “found art” sculptors. Serenitee Restaurant Group is commissioning a large scale, sculptural light fixture over the bar at its next restaurant in Salem. The new restaurant is on the site of the former Greenland Café on Washington St. in Salem.

This sculptural art piece will serve as a principal focal point much the way the sculptural octopus functions over the sushi area at Latitude 43 in Gloucester.  In addition, unlike the octopus sculpture, it will serve a critical functional and marketing role in the bar area. The primary functions of the piece include the following:

  • Creates stem glass and wine or liquor storage accessible to bartenders
  • General lighting (LED) and visual interest which creates richness and sparkle but no glare
  • Incorporates found objects related to the bar trade and liquor manufacture, past and present
  • Captures the visual variety and richness of the craft of mixology
  • Creates a memorable impression both from within the restaurant as well as from the street
  • Contributes to the brand and overall aesthetic experience in the restaurant

The approximate size of the piece will be roughly 4 to 5 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide. It will be hung approximately 6’-6” above the floor.

Depending upon cost, two related chandeliers may also be commissioned for the front windows.

Please contact the owner Mark McDonough immediately to discuss the design if you are interested in submitting a proposal. Collaboration between artists with complimentary talents is encouraged but not essential. Proposals are due by Sept 28 and the winner will be announced Oct 1.  The restaurant opens the first week in November. All artists will be given each other’s contact information.

Want to work in the Concert Business?

We need help.  You probably know that we’re producing a new concert series at North Shore Music Theatre this summer featuring top local talent on stage with national recording stars (more info here).

As you can see from this video (taken from the Celebrate Gloucester DVD) concerts are a lot of work — and we do EVERYTHING, from dreaming up the idea to organizing talent, lights, sound, staging porta-potties … to convincing someone to purchase a VIP ticket when he wasn’t planning on it (you can see that in the video) to designing, printing and hanging posters to … well you get the idea.

So, if this looks like fun to you and you’re willing to work as hard as we do, we’ve got a job for you.  And it pays.  20 hours a week to start.  Full time later this year.  You need lots of energy, just the right amount of ambition, a love of live music, brilliant communication skills (texting doesn’t count) and fairly thick skin.

If this sounds like you, we’ll have a lot of fun together!  Call Vickie or Peter at 978-525-9093 or click here to contact us.

It’s Monday.  That means Bandit Kings host an open jam @ Rhumbline.  Always a good time.  Big music week here on Cape Ann.  You can’t get to everything so check out the full week’s music lineup and start thinking about where you want to go.
