John Barrymore’s ghost launches the laughs in Cortland Repertory’s I Hate Hamlet
One of the late Joseph Papp’s best ideas was staging Shakespeare for free in Central Park, and then casting people not usually associated with classical theater in leading roles. John Cazale (Fredo in the The Godfather movies), to name but one, was breathtaking as the puritanical Angelo in Measure for Measure. This week anticipation is running high for Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries, Rachel Got Married) as the cross-dressing Viola in Twelfth Night. But the risk of public humiliation is palpable for an otherwise successful TV or film actor.
Gone are the days when libraries serve as a respite from the distractions of a chaotic, new-millennium world. Instead, post-modern entropy that sounds more like the pangs of a raging guitar solo, the clattering of a bowl-a-thon and the clash of epic battles among fantastic creatures has invaded libraries, Jumanji-style, in the form of videogaming nights. Locally, the Fayetteville Free Library, 300 Orchard St., Fayetteville, is the first to offer such distractions. The programs feature new gaming equipment the library bought this year, including projectors that serve as huge monitors for Playstation 2 and Wii consoles with attractions like Wii Sports and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

There was a threat of thunderstorms throughout the weather forecast for July 9, but nary a droplet fell from the occasionally cloudy afternoon during Mike Price Appreciation Day festivities at Onondaga Lake Park. No sirree, nothing was going to rain on this guy’s parade, as Price, 71, was embarking on a well-deserved retirement after nearly 46 years with WSYR-Channel 9, with several hundred fans and friends joining in to wish him well.
New Times publisher Art Zimmer has guested on local TV’s cooking shows, including a memorable blood-curdling encounter on the old Freaky Flix and Food, so it was only a matter of time before Food for Thought, the chat-and-chow half-hour series airing on WCNY-Channel 24, would come calling. On Tuesday, July 22, 12:30 p.m., Art will talk about all things Art with co-hosts George Kilpatrick and Chris Xaver, while preparing a special recipe; vivacious promotions manager Marlene Belge will also be on hand to discuss the July 26 Street Painting Festival, which moves this year to the 200 block of downtown’s Montgomery Street. The show repeats at 10 p.m. on WCNY 2 on Time Warner Cable’s Channel 12.
