Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta F.bruory 16, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HEFAID _ The Music Box After you're reached the top-then what? By VICTOIl STANTOH Canadian Press Staff Writer After you've reached the top of a mountain and seen tho view, what do yon do? If you're singer Anne Mur- ray, you look around for an- other mountain to climb. Anne reached the top ol her first mountain of success back in 1970. She found the from the highest peak beauti- ful, but it was a lonely place to be and just being there somehow wasn't as satisfying as the climb to get there. This year, Anne topes to climb another mountain and recapture, at least in some degree, that old feeling of ex- citement and the anticipation of the view to come. Of course, "there's no way it can be any way like the first says the husky- voiced former teacher from Springhill, N.S. "In the bcgining, I was really enjoying she says wistfully of her career which began in 1966 on a Halifax tel- evision show. But after a her 1970 hit recording of Gene MacLellan's Snowbird-as Canada's top pop vocalist, "there's not any more inner satisfaction." PRIVACY LOST In fact, in the course of an h o u r 's conversation with Anne, she mentions a number of dissatisfactions she has about the professional singing business. Privacy. "Sometimes I get a little upset at the lack of privacy. Privacy is impossible in this business, and basically I'm a very private person. My own privacy is becoming more and AiBtERTA CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre "TOO LATE THE HERO" In Melrocolor. Starring Michael Caine and Ciiff Robertson.

"I have people around me, lawyers, managers, produc- ers, my musicians. But thev don't know what it is like to be in my place. It's lonely." Success itself. "It becomes clouded by money and all the things that have to be taken care of. You DANCE! with confidence 'Fun' 'Exciting' MONTE CARLO way! Call 327-1442 Today! ANNE MURRAY lop lonely place get so swept up in the work- ing of it all. So messed up. So many tilings that are happen- ing. "I'm not laughing yet. It's still a big mess as far as I'm concerned." What keeps her in the busi- ness? "I wish 1 knew. It isn't drive because 1 haven't the necessary drive to be in the business. I just go along with things. 1 think about giving up every now and then." TIME TO MOVE ON But then she reasons, "noth- ing is all peaches and cream." "I'm getting over a hump. In Canada right now I guess I've reached the pinnacle. Ca- nadian audiences know what to expect so I think it is time to go." She savs that after complet- ing her third television special for the CBC this inally, the CBC wanted to do as many as eight Anne Mur- ray specials in concentrate her personal ap- pcarances in the United States, where "there are a lot of people to be entertained and I'll be starting over again." "I peaked in Canada, but not so much in the U.S. I was in demand in Canada because I was recognized in the U.S. Now, I need a new audience. Maybe what happened here will happen to me again there." However, there Is "no doubt" about her continuing to live in Canada. (She re- cently bought a S7S.OOO home in a fashionable district of To- ronto and although after a couple months she had only spent six days in it, she says "those six days were worth the money I paid for When abroad, she looks upon herself as a "sort of am- bassador." "I take brochures of Nova Scotia with me whenever I go down to Los Angeles and I have Canadian flags all over." Cast distributes FLQ manifesto TORONTO (CP) George Eyga's play, Captives of the Faceless Drummer, received its first full staging here and be- came, in part, a propaganda piece for the Front de Libera- tion du Quebec. At the conclusion of the play, ihich focuses on captive and captor in a situation reminis- cent of the Quebec political kid- nappings of 1970 but set in some future, undefined, Canadian rev- olutionary period, members of the cast distributed to the audi- ence copies of the FLQ mani- festo. A spokesman for the St. Law- rence Centre, where the play opened a two-week run before a near-capacity audience, said the handing out of the manifesto was not the conception of the playwright but part of the stag- ing of the play by director Mar- tin Kinch. Mr. Ryga, a native of Alberta who lives and writes in British Columbia, had been invited to attend the opening, the spokes- man said, but had to decline when his wife entered hospital. The playwright, an outspoken critic of Canadian professional theatres for what he calls their "tokenism' in staging only one or two Canadian plays a season, has been trying for more than a year to get the play produced in a professional theatre. It was rejected last season by he Vancouver Playhouse, but ater received a studio perform- nce at the Vancouver Art Gal- ery. Urjo Karccla, drama critic for he Toronto Star, wrote prior to ast night's opening that thu 'oronto production represented not so much a victory for Ca- ladian drama as the continuing tmggle against tokenism and ear." The Ryga play is one of i-o Canadian works included in he centre's 1971-72 season. Mr. Kareda said that "in its ihows an original striking lower in its presentation of an rLQ-style political confronta- ion" and 'certainly deserves a jigger audience1 than it re- :eived in Vancouver. Herbert Whittaker wrote in Tiie Globe and Mail Mowing he production that the play did not offer a "sensationalist look t the FLQ outbreaks which in- spired it." "Indeed, it is a politi- cal work, despite director Mar- in Kinchs attempts to make it so. It is a gentle, poetic work, a ery personal expression for all t s confrontation, occasional rough words and gunfire." Site's sure secret admirer ivill come through again TORONTO (CP) Meryl Dunsmore came home to an empty mailbox Monday, but she's positive her secret Val- entine's Day admirer will come through for the 44th straight year.
