Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Dvcwniwr 2, W4 THE LETHBHIDQE HERALD 7 reincarnated Theatre-on-film productions as Russian stage musical to open in city in January New York Ttnej Service MOSCOW The music from "Jesus Christ Super- long only a hot black market item in the Soviet Union because of its questionable bourgeois origins and religious theme, has final- ly made it on the legitimate stage. This breakthrough came in a Soviet musical about the moral searchings of progressive American youth, their struggle against Pen- tagon generals testing dangerous new weapons and their betrayal by a clever Chinese nightclub owner and narcotics dealer who is also a Maoist agent in cahoots with American generals. The musical, with the title of "Rock and Roll at PRE-CHRISTMAS and UpMstiry Chiiiig Spciil by Shining Knight Phone 328-8408 Mri Fit TV Gift R.A. HOSACK Certified Dentil Mwlunic DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC 8 3045th StS. Ph. 327-7244 Lethbridge was written by Vadim Nekrasov and Tomas Kolesnichenko, two senior editors of Pravda who have worked in the United States and have university age children with tastes for western music. They have created an am- bience and a medium that fre- quently are authentically American not only the "Superstar" music, the profane and punchy ver- nacular and the writhing rock dancing by youths in T-shirts and tattered jeans, all unusual for the Soviet stage, but also parodies of fatuous American television soap and toothpaste ads. Then there is the sultry setting of the Lotus Club, where the Chinese agent promotes Chairman Mao's lit- tle red book and anti-Soviet propaganda to the would-be New Left revolutionaries among the students. The authors have provided something for everyone. For ideological conservatives they have reinforced Soviet cliches about American life the soulless money grubbing of the Establishment, workers furious over the monotonies of mass production, youths craz- ed on heroin or living in sexual sin, Mafia bodyguards, policemen clubbing students, power hungry generals and senators in a cabal pushing Free Band Concert By The Gilbert Paterson School Bands All interested people are invited to attend this concert which begins at p.m. on Thursday, December 5th, at Gilbert'Paterson School, 12 Avenue and 21 Street South. SUPPORT YOUR SCHOOLS, WE NEED YOU! tests of ever more powerful weapons. For devotees of detente there are not only the rock numbers but references to White House opposition to war with Moscow and to members of Congress who are against the arms race and even a single, isolated, daring mo- ment in which a television newsman dares to. report on an anti-arms demonstration. The students, after haggling over whether and how to mount a revolution, decide to hold a joint demonstration with pacifist soldiers on the test site. In a clever dramatic twist 'on the authors have "Jesus" betray their plan to the Chinese agent, who tips off the Pen- tagon, while "Judas" leads the demonstration. In the finale his girlfriend, Jenny, dies when the soldiers open fire in a replay of the Kent State shootings. On opening night the Soviet audience viewed two scenes as having local implications. The audience broke into laughter and applause when a television newsman read a police warning against taking strolls in Central Park after dark because of violent at- tacks. The Soviet theatregoers obviously took it as a reminder of the police warnings and a manhunt un- der way in Moscow in the wake of several killings after dark. The other moment comes near the end when onetrf the New York narcotics agents tracking the Chinese drug peddler quits the force in anger when a telephone call from headquarters halts the arrest of the Chinese because he tipped off the Pentagon about the student demonstration.

Edward Anhalt did the screenplay for "The Man in the Glass the cast of which includes Maximilian Schell, Lois Nettleton, Lawrence Pressman and Luther Adler. It was directed by Arthur Killer, who also made "Love Story" and "The Americanization of Emily." Schell plays Arthur Gold- man, a New York businessman charged by the Israelis with being a former SS concentration camp tor- turer. At the start of his trial, he takes credit for his crimes, then changes his mind and says he really is Goldman, a concentration camp survivor. Bob Shackleford of the Paramount Theatre, says the first series ran in Calgary last year, but not in Lethbridge. He says he hopes the quality productions will attract a good audience. Season tickets will be sold for for the matinees and for evening perfor- mances. Senior citizens and post secondary students can get matinee season tickets for but there is no discount for evening shows. If enough schools can be interested, a Wednesday morning program may be run for high school students. No single-performance tickets will be sold until after season ticket holders are seated, says Mr. Shackleford. The prices are higher for single tickets for a matinee and for an evening. TOPOL SCHELL GIELGUD YORK Stage designer started her career accidentally KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) Less than 10 years ago, a uni- versity student named Molly Harris had no aspirations of becoming a stage designer. Although she liked to draw, she had never had an art les- son in her life, and upon starting out on a general arts course at the then Waterloo Lutheran University (WLU, now standing for Wilfrid Lau- rier "a career in the theatre was the farthest thing" from her mind. "I was expecting to end up teaching English, or doing something prosaic like Molly recalled shortly after it had been announced she would be designing one of the major productions for next season's Stratford Shakespearean Festival.
