Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The Music Box After votive reached the top-then what? By VICTOIl STANTO? f Canadian Press Staff Writer After you've reached the top of a mountain and seen the view, what do you do? If you're singer Anne Mur- ray, you look around for an- other mountain to climb. Anne reached lire top of her first mountain of success back in 1970. She found the view from the lu'ghest peak beauti- ful, but it was a lonely place (o be and just being there somehow wasn't as satisfying as the climb to get there. This yeai-, Anne liopos to climb another mountain and recapture, at least in some degree, that old feeling of ex- citement 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 leacher from Springhill, N.S.

It's lonely." Success itself. "It becomes clouded by money and all the things that have to be taken care of. You A.V.VE MURRAY top lonely place gel so swept up in the work- ing of it all. So messed up. So many tilings thai are happen- ing. I'm not laughing yet. It's still a big mess as far as I'm concerned." What keeps her hi the busi- ness? "I wish 1 knew. It isn't drive localise 1 haven't the necessary drive to be in the business. I just go along with things. 1 think about giving up every new 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 says thai 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 orer again." "1 peaked in Canada, but not so much in the U.S. 1 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- cenlly bought a home in a fashionable district of To- ronto and although after a couple months she had only spent siK dfiys 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."

Widneidny, Fibrunry 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HIRAlD 7 Cast distributes FLQ manifesto TORONTO (CP) George Ryga's play, Captives of the Faceless Drummer, received ils first full staging here and be- came, in part, a propaganda piece for the Front de Libera lion du Quebec. At the conclusion of the play, which focuses on captive and captor in a situation reminis- cent of the Quebec political kid mappings 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 sure secret admirer will come through again sentimental, and dura- 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.

Herbert Wliittaker wrote in The Globe and Mail folowing the production that the play did not offer a "sensationalist look at the FLQ outbreaks which in- spired it." "Indeed, it is a politi- cal work, despite director Mar- in Kinchs attempts to make il so. It is a gentle, poetic work, a very personal expression for all ts confrontation, occasional rough words and gunfire."
