The Howard ~ St. Patrick’s Day Emerald Bagels at Isaac’s Bagel Cafe in Bloomfield, CT

 

Mr. Isaac Suttar with his St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Bagels.

Restaurant: Isaac’s Bagel Cafe
Review: Howard Steven Frydman

A Rainbow of Gold to be found at Isaac’s Bagel Cafe this St. Patrick’s Day.

As they say, “the hills are the greenest green” in the beautiful hamlet of Bloomfield, Connecticut, especially during the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day week celebration. In observance of everything “green”, folks from all over New England are once again expected to make their yearly visit to the one and only Isaac’s Bagel Cafe in search of the elusive “Green Bagel”, other emerald shaded treats, plus one lucky patron to Isaac’s will win a rainbow of a surprise.

In fact, for over a decade, those seekers of the magically delicious “St. Patty Green Bagel” have made it their yearly destination stop to get their “made only once a year” –  Hot from the oven, baked oval treasures treats, at the one and only Isaac’s Bagel Cafe, helmed by the “nicest man you will ever meet” – Mr. Isaac Suttar. Indeed, the welcoming aroma of fresh baked goods emanate from the well-known eatery and bake shop where folks from throughout the region congregate to celebrate the upcoming “wearing and eating of the green”.

Miss Lillian Green, of Holyoke, Massachusetts stated, “I wake up around 6am, and make my way to Bloomfield, I want to be the first in line. In fact I’ve been coming to Isaac’s for his St. Patrick’s Day Bagels for about 5 years”.  Miss Green continued,”My entire family was from Holyoke, my dad George was the one who started our tradition of always having green bagels on St. Patrick’s Day. I am so glad to keep this family tradition alive. How many green bagels will I get? – about 4 dozen. I don’t know what Isaac does to those green bagels – but they are truly mouthwatering”.

During St. Patrick’s Week, Isaac, who wakes each morning before 3 am, heads to his cafe and as as you can guess- begins his daily routine of preparing “hot from the oven” bagels, will be making close to 4,000 of the Kelly-green edibles. In fact besides the St.Patty’s Day Green Bagels, Isaac prepares over 30 various bagel types a day, with choices ranging from poppy, cinnamon raisin, sesame, spinach, onion, cheddar, jalapeño Asiago, “The Howard”, everything, blueberry, and bialy. For bagel toppings, Isaac offers a myriad of delectables including plain cream cheese, chive cream cheese, jalapeño cream cheese, or honey walnut cream cheese, plus piled high lox (smoked salmon) to capers, tomatoes and red onions. For your “St. Patty Day Green Bagel”  try a Howard’s favorite taste treat, a combo of plain cream cheese and fresh avocado slices- yum!

During the “Wearing of the Green” celebration – Isaac will also be serving up several breakfast and lunch specials that will surely add a emerald twinkle to the eye of hungry patrons including the inspired “Lucky Charms” breakfast – freshly made “French Toast”, Buttermilk Pancakes, and authentic Belgian Waffles – sprinkled with multi-colored marshmallow shapes and served with warm, real maple syrup. Pancakes and waffles may be ordered additionally either plain, or with various fruit toppings, berries, bananas or even chocolate chips.

What’s St. Patrick’s Day without Corned beef and cabbage?- not to worry, Isaac is offering up his green-plate sandwich special of a heaping helping of hand sliced Corned beef, on fresh rye, served with Swiss cheese, sliced avocado, sauerkraut , and emerald pickle spears. Additional lunch offerings include soups, salads, grilled burgers, wraps, paninis, various classic sandwiches such as BLT’s, Roast Beef, tuna and egg salad, Nova Scotia Lox, Philly Cheese Steak, plus Isaac’s famous “Grilled Cheese Sensation Special”, a massive toasted grilled cheese sandwich topped with bacon, tomato and served with a cup of tomato bisque and a small salad. For those with a sweet tooth, please sample a freshly made St. Patty’s Day Green muffin, danish, cookie, or cinnamon twist along with Isaac’s always freshly brewed coffee or my usual during the cold months, a hot cup of cocoa adorned with a buoyant dollop of whipped cream.

On St. Patrick’s Day Eve, Saturday, March 16th, every patron who purchases a dozen “green bagels” are urged to search their bagel bags for the “Lucky Rainbow Bagel. If you find one- One lucky St. Patrick’s Day Green Bagel buyer will win a special gift certificate to be used at the cafe. May the luck of the green bagels be with you!

“Isaac’s Bagel Café ” has two locations, 16-B Mountain Avenue, and 927 Blue Hills Avenue,  Bloomfield, Connecticut.

The Howard – Theater Review~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood ~ Connecticut Repertory Theater

Edwin Drood starring Emily Ferranti

Theater Review by Howard Steven Frydman

Production:                   The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Theater:                          Connecticut Repertory Theater
Music/Lyrics/Book:    Rupert Holmes
Director:                          Paul Mullins

Well I be-jiggered, I be-dazzled, I be both  Datcheried and be-Droodified – and the cause of these “Pre Fab Four Bees” you ask? The CRT’s current fabtabulous interactive production of Rupert Holmes’ Tony Award Winning Musical Production of Charles Dicken’s final incomplete novel- “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” and it BE good – darn good!! In fact the original musical won five Tony Awards in 1986  including Best Musical and  Best Performance by a leading Actor in a Musical for George Rose.

For those of you who enjoy high kicking, energetic antics and an oh-so mysterious goings-on, let me tell you –  Director Paul Mullins has brought forth a Dickens of a cast –  a Dickens of a production- and you’re gonna love Our “Miss” Drood (Emily Ferranti) like the Dickens – ahem, yep he’s a she – but The Chairman – aka  Master of Ceremonies of the Royal Music Hall (Kurt Zizchke) will explain all the delectable Victorian goings on at plays onset.

A favorite of mine when the tale be Dickens is listening for the names of the characters- and  “Drood” does not disappoint with such stalwarts including; Throttle, Drood, Crisparkle, Princess Puffer, and that double dee- Dick Datchery. The game as they say is afoot- this well-crafted Musical Murder Mystery, with multiple conclusions that you the audience vote on, choosing who the murderer is – sort of a live version of that children’s classic board game “Clue” where you deduce the real killer by the clues provided – you know –  “Colonel Mustard” did it in the Conservatory, here it’s who done in Drood by the River?

As performed, MOED is a play within a play, characters do not actually portray specific Dicken’s characters, but are the cast members of “Royal Music Hall” who have been hired to play Dickens troupe of players, some in multiple roles, as they engage the audience in a humorous process of deduction, song and dance and the eventual whodunnit. I still say it was Princess Puffer in the Pantry!!

As a musical MOED does not fall short, hummable tunes that are finger snap friendly, such as the opening number “There You Are” – where stalwart cast members intermingle among the audience – I received a wink and a “how do you do” from Miss Drood, me thinks she liked my white beard. And speaking of our Miss E. Drood and her/his  duel role of Dick Datchery, Miss Emily Ferranti OWNS this production – what a triple treat- actor, singer, dancer – and oh what a singular joy to watch this young accomplished actress on stage- – she reminds one of a young Julie Andrews- an angelic voice, commanding stage presence – in the words of La Andrews- she is “loverly, loverly, loverly”.

We take note that this is a huge cast, 23 in all, who are all superb in their various roles. We would be remiss in not mentioning the wonderful Kurt Zischke as The Chairman/Mayor Sapsea, humerus, folksy, and robust – bravo. We send out a coveted “Howard Noticed You Award to Miss Rebekah Santiago in her portrayal of Helena Landless – you provided a deliciously delightful enunciation of the line “Corpse”- highly enjoyable.

Lastly, tis I, Howard Steven Frydman, your trusted theater reviewer, 2 hours and 30 minutes have passed oh too quickly and here I still sit, row J, seat 114, at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre, in Storrs, Connecticut, and I be beaming with a wide-eyed smile from ear to ear I tells ya!! Beaming!!!  Folks!, the Connecticut Repertory Theater’s production of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood”, is one mystery I can surely solve right away – this side of Broadway – ITS A HOT HIT of a musical production that surely should not be missed. In fact this cast, the costumes, this entire uncompromising production, is Broadway worthy and thus worthy of your time and appreciation. Enjoy!

This production will take place at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theater located on the campus of the University of Connecticut. CRT is the professional producing arm of the Department of Dramatic Arts at the University of Connecticut- Storrs, CT. For ticket information or to purchase tickets by phone: 860-486-2113 or visit online at www.crt.uconn.edu.

The Howard ~ Theater Review ~ “George and Gracie: Part 2” – Seven Angels Theater

Theater Review by Howard Steven Frydman

Production:                         George and Gracie, Part 2
Theater:                               Seven Angels Theater
Conceived & Created by:  Semina De Laurentis                  
Director:                              Julia Kiley

“Hi Ho Silver, Away!”, “ Hey Kids What Time Is It?” , “Lucy! You got some ‘splainin’ to do!”, “Baby you’re the greatest”, famous 50’s TV catch phrases all – and lastly “the” one classic catch phrase that is ever so timeless – “Say goodnight, Gracie”! 

“The George Burns And Gracie Allen Show” ruled the airwaves from 1950 to 1958, from vaudeville, to radio and then on to television they were comedy royalty. In this most turbulent world- when we crave a hearty laugh where are Gracie and George when we need them now you ask? Well calling all G & G fans be they “Natty-ettes” (George was born Nathan Birnbaum) and Googie-Cats (what George called Gracie) – let’s grab a can of Carnation’s evaporated milk and head over to the Seven Angels Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut as they present an  endearing and oh so exhilarating tribute to a most beloved husband and wife team and their classic situation comedy – “George and Gracie: Part 2” starring Semina De Laurentis as “Gracie” and R. Bruce Connelly as “George”.

Top- Blanche (Sarah Knapp) and Harry Morton (John Swanson), bottom- Semina De Laurentis as Gracie and R. Bruce Connelly as George.

I freely admit I am not a TV child from the golden age of television (1950’s ) but that of the silver – 60-70’s – in fact my hair has even taken on a silver screen tinge – as a child I devoured old tv shows – thank Heaven for reruns. I can still from memory recite an entire Sunday’s listing of CBS programming – 7pm, Lassie, 7:30, Dennis the Menace, 8pm The Ed Sullivan Show, 9pm, The Smothers Brothers, 10pm, Candid Camera and at 10:30 What’s My Line. As an early  connoisseur of Television- I so recall watching George, sans Gracie, as “today’s guest star” – George Burns –  on the “Lucy Show”, “Jack Benny” Holiday specials and those suave “celebrity roasts” hosted by Dean Martin as he joked, kibitzed, and did a mean soft-shoe. Yet it was during the ‘50’s that George and Gracie ruled the airwaves – by the way though Gracie was the real star – George always got top billing. 

Cast of George and Gracie: Part 2

The TV GUIDE schedule- 8pm Monday night on CBS, – Now don’t turn that knob!! I can hear their opening theme “Love Nest” playing, and I think I can smell George puff away on one of  his El Producto cigars. Now let’s enter the Burn’s home located at 312 Maple Drive in “the” Beverly Hills, California where we are introduced to their neighbors Blanche (Sarah Knapp) and Harry Morton (John Swanson), and announcer Harry Von Zell (Tom Chute). 

Alike the Seinfeld Show, “The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show” was literally about nothing- each week George would saunter out from the curtain, look directly at the camera, “breaking that fourth wall”, slowly puff on his cigar, and tell us what strange and deliciously ditsy dilemma wife Gracie had gotten herself into. And that’s it for 30 minutes- after that it was ALL Gracie! This production painstakingly recreates several of these classic television episodes including: “Gracie Goes to Psychiatrist for Blanche’s Dream” (season 4 episode 23 (1954) Gracie consults a psychiatrist to help Blanche understand her dream of drowning by her husband Harry and “Gracie Writes ‘My Life with George Burns” – (Season 3 episode 10 (1952) “Gracie fabricates a magazine article claiming George once beat up an infamous gangster who shows up at the Burns home in a very bad mood. The finale even includes an “after piece” of one of their vaudeville shows highlighting the likes of Sophie Tucker and other stars of the period.

Blanche (Sarah Knapp) and Harry Morton (John Swanson), Semina De Laurentis as Gracie, R. Bruce Connelly as George and Tom Chute as Harry Von Zell.

Let me clearly state from the beginning of this review- Seven Angels Theater has done an absolutely remarkable job in recreating the Television world that George and Gracie inhabited. The sets, props, cigars, clothing and the wigs are amazingly correct- yes both George and Gracie wore ahem- wigs! Even that darn hat closet is there, filled with hats that Gracie forgot to give back. If you didn’t know better one would have thought you had literally walked through the tube of your old Zenith and stepped into the “real life” world and home of Burns and Allen. Though originally broadcast in black and white, yet for your viewing pleasure Seven Angels presents the George and Gracie Show part two in living color and not commercial free.  By the way, those lucky enough to sit in the front few aisles may be recipients of “Carnation’s Famous Pumpkin Pie Recipe” – the shows sponsor – ahem – I got mine!!

Major Kudos first to R. Bruce Connelly in recreating gravely voiced professional straight man George Burns. Sir you were a delight- what a merry twinkle in your eyes throughout. Hands down you were George, from a perfect pursing of your lips to the use of the prop cigar. Now let  me tell you –  the “STAR” of this show is none other than SEMINA DE LAURENTIS and she knows it!! De Laurentis is incandescent as Gracie- absolutely radiant in recreating Gracie, right down from her two toned wig, befuddled laugh, and quick delivery of script. Miss De Laurentis is having as much fun on stage as we are in watching her. Shame on you though for making me tear up at every nuance of you being Gracie- but I loved it! Major kudos to the rest of the cast as well including Sarah Kanapp as Blanche, John Swanson as Harry, and the one, the only Tom Chute as Harry Von Zell.

The production has its heart in the right place – full and lovely effect- we are transformed. I truly hope families bring their children to witness this outstanding homage to the golden age of television. Indeed when comedy was king and a woman first ran for President – it’s true Gracie once indeed ran for the POTUS, we may have loved Lucy  but we definitely cherished Gracie- say not “Goodnight Gracie” but hello to the charms of this wonderfully creative reconstruction of a hit television program. Bravo to Seven Angels, and a big hug to the Angel’s extraordinary talented Miss De Laurentis. Enjoy!

The Howard- Theater Review – “A Doll’s House Part 2” TheaterWorks Connecticut Premiere

 

Theater Review by  Howard Steven Frydman


Production
:                A Doll’s House, Part 2
Theater:                      TheaterWorks

Written by:                 Lucas Hnath
Director:                      Jenn Thompson

Singer Jim Croce once voiced  “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, You don’t spit into the wind, You don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger, And you don’t mess around with Jim…”

Hmmm, – if not Jim, how about maybe Margaret Mitchell? “What if” you did “mess” with her “Gone With the Wind” and had Rhett Butler return to Scarlet, what if Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” never had died and eventually had triplets, or Peter Pan just simply grew old? Well folks, we all love sequels, prequels and “what ifs” – simply finding out what some of our favorite classic characters did next. Now here’s a great “what if”, how about being reunited with Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll House” and his most controversial character Nora, who walked out on her husband and three children 15 years ago. Well guess what – she’s back in “A Doll’s House, Part 2, written by Lucas Hnath, currently in production at TheaterWorks and making its Connecticut Premiere and folks let me tell you it’s one doozy of a retell!

Tasha Lawrence as Nora

Plain and simple – this production is RIVETING! Yes exclamation point! I literally could not keep pace with those splendid actors on stage, my head bobbing from one to another. I delighted in their oh so heavenly hot and heavy verbal exchanges between Nora, her onetime children’s nursemaid Anne-Marie, daughter Emmy, and the man she walked out on – her husband Torvald Helmer, and I LOVED IT!  And guess what- so will you!

Tasha Lawrence and Amelia White

I along with a “sold out” audience at TheaterWorks, we are literally hypnotize, sitting at the edge of our seats, head in hand fascinated not only by this continuation of the House of T. tale, but by those actors and its pristine direction on stage. I usually wait till later in my reviews, but both Tasha Lawrence as Nora and Amelia White as Anne Marie are absolutely amazing, such power in their respective roles, such humor, – such accomplished actors, I say bravo- as well to Director Jenn Thompson who delivers to us such true life portrayals. By the way, the original Broadway production received eight Tony Award nominations, with Laurie Metcalf receiving the 2017 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Nora. 

Tasha Lawrence and Sam Gregory

Firstly, to enjoy this sequel you don’t need to get yourself reacquainted with part one or even  Henrik Ibsen. In truth you only missed some macaroons, a Tarantella, some Christmas packages, a steamy interlude with a pair of nylons, and a door that leads to a new life – you can go back later if you want and catch up. Yes Nora is back – as stated in the PR- “15 years ago, she slammed the door, now she’s Kicking It In”.

Though Part Two is 90 minutes long, it feels like time has stopped, we are indeed at a stand still as we are reintroduced to these characters, the world they occupy and those norms placed on both men and women.The place-Norway, we return to the Helmer house, the year 1894, Nora pounds that singular door awaiting to be let back in. So what has Nora done in the last 15 years since she left Torvald and her children, well according to nursemaid Anne Marie -“we thought you were dead- what brings you back after all this time”? Great question which leads us to a most excellent explanation. 

Kira Player and Tasha Lawrence

Well firstly, let me tell you – Nora did survive after leaving Torvald , in-fact Nora has done mighty well for a single independent woman of the times, she dresses well, has her own apartment, signs her own contracts, has a myriad of lovers young and old – (she has had lovers – she has had a life) and is now a well know author (under a pseudonym) telling young women how they too can be independent and not lead a life of only being a wife and mother. Yet why the return?Well it turns out that Nora and Torvald never officially divorced, and now she needs a signed dissolution of marriage or she might end up losing everything she has achieved during those preceding 15 years.  As for her children, especially daughter Emmy (Kira Player) – “things may have turned out better because she was not around”.  As for Nora – she is woman – hear her roar! 

Theater Reviewer- Howard Steven Frydman

As stated, the acting here is top-notch- Tasha Lawrence as Nora literally commands that stage. Her onstage presence from light matter of fact humor to explosive emotion is powerfully delivered and not soon forgotten. Amelia White as the put upon Nursemaid Anne Marie, Sam Gregory as Torvald, and Kira Player as Emmy provide a triumphant triptych of talent to this top notch production. Please note though the costumes by Alejo Vietti may be of of the 1890’s period, yet the language utilized, (and there are several several “F bombs” used throughout) they are definitely expressions of today. An excellent thought provoking production I hope you take the time to take in. Sometimes it’s a good thing to mess with Jim. Enjoy.

“A Doll’s House, Part 2“ is currently being produced at TheaterWorks, City Arts on Pearl, 233 Pearl Street, Hartford, CT. For tickets or info call TheaterWorks at 860.527.7838. Run Dates: July 20th through August 26th 2018.
