Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Quiet guitarist plays with feeling By MICHAEL LAWSON The Canadian Press Recognition of Roy Bu- chanan as a major musical talent may have come too late and too suddenly for the man himself to accept. While both public and media now applaud his top-quality the bearded guitarist does not represent himself to be star material. the entertainment trade has called Bu- chanan a and Rolling Stone has said Buchanan well be the Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE Short Subjects- 7-00 9-10 BLAZING SADDLES 7-35945 LAST COMPLETE SHOW- ADULT NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects 7 20 9 20 LAST DETAIL 7'35 9 40 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 20 ADULT ENTERTAINMENT COLLEGE CINEMA LAST TANGO IN PARIS 7 00 9 10 No short TWO COMPLETE SHOWS 7 00 S 9 10 RESTRICTED ADULT num.

Roy's career moved full steam ahead when a group of television personnel heard his act at a nightclub and offered to feature his music in a TV special. The NET television network rebroadcast the program sev- eral times throughout the United which led to a series of major concert including one at Carnegie Hall. Since then he has recorded three albums. The That Is What I'm Here was released by Polydor this year and represents the guitarist at his best.

French production Amoving' ST. Nfld. Many people in the audience were unable to understand the French dialogue of Friday's presentation at the Theatre Canada Dominion Drama but said they were moved by the production. The Les Vilains by Andre Gille. was performed at the festival by the Cercle Moliere group of St. Man. Louis one of the professional directors appointed an animateur to encourage discussion between the audience and the actors at the end of the said in visual appearance the play was brutal Mr. Desantis said when the proper rhythm is present in a it is easy to understand. he felt the rhythm of this play was not what it should have been in places. But some in the audience of 400 saying they felt that the company maintained a good pace. Mr. Desantis also said he felt the players had been true to the author in their interpretation. The play was beautiful and superbly by the cast of 22. The final comment came from animateur Sean who wondered why he had been so bored with the English-language plays which he understood while being so moved by Les Vilains in a language he could not understand.

Cellar stage widens choice in London LONDON home of the famed West End has a fringe theatre. it is a impre- cise term to describe the ag- gregation of little theatres- many housed in cellars and that have opened in the last six years. Any comprehensive survey of fringe theatre would have to go back to 1934 when Nor- man Marshall opened the Gate Theatre -to present the kind of plays then banned by the Lord list included Aristophanes' Laurence Hous- man's Victoria Regma and Lillian Heiimaifi The Chil- dren's Hour. Marshall was a great pio- and soon there was a crop of enterprising little such as the the Torch and the New Lind- sey dotted around the London suburbs.

Here was physically uninhibited acting and ensemble discipline of a kind one never seemed to see in London. Six years the London fringe theatre still doesn't boast many examples of that kind of group precision. But it does have a number of achievements to its credit. Three dramatists have moved from little-theatre work into the mainstream. One is Howard Brenton who started with a travelling com- pany called Portable Theatre and who last year had a good play about urban produced at the Royal Court and an even bet- ter play about Britain from 1945 to the present written in collabo- ration with David pre- sented at Nottingham Play- house.

And Trevor a highly political Fringe had his last The presented at the National with Lord Oli- in the lead. But there are plenty of other signs that the fringe has justified its existence.
