New Book by Gray & Co. Collects Stories from Golden Age of Cleveland TVNew Book by Gray & Co. Collects Stories from Golden Age of Cleveland TV
by BWW News Desk - Oct 25, 2014

Stories about some of the biggest names in Cleveland television history are retold in the new book 'Cleveland TV Tales' by Mike and Janice Olszewski. The book profiles dozens of colorful men and women who helped invent local television programming from the 1950s through the 1970s. Two of the best known personalities featured in 'Cleveland TV Tales' are Ernie Anderson, who as 'Ghoulardi,' the late-night movie host, got top ratings by trying to shock his audience, and Ron Penfound, who thought his job as genial cartoon-show host 'Captain Penny' would last only a few weeksand then stayed on the air for 16 years. Less-well-known innovators are included, too, such as confrontational talk show host Alan Douglas, who frequently baited his guestssometimes to the brink of violence. 'These were some pretty colorful people,' Mike Olszewski said. 'Maybe eccentric would be a better word. Okay, downright odd in some cases. But they were very creative.' They had to be. "When television broadcasting began in Cleveland, there was no formula,' Mike Olszewski said. 'There wasn't a model for regional hosts to follow. They had to use their creativity. And back then almost all TV was live, so they had to be on their toes; whatever could go wrong usually did." Anecdotes in the book include: • Linn Sheldon, as children's host 'Barnaby,' an elf, handling a young fan who casually used a racial epithetseveral timeson live TV • Early game show host Paul Hodges, whose 'Dress and Guess,' had contestants trying to figure out what famous person he was portraying before he got all his clothes on • Late night host 'Big' Wilson purchasing a wild wallaby to live on his yacht and serve as KYW TV's mascot (because he couldn't get a kangaroo) • Tough-as-nails news commentator Dorothy Fuldheim irritating various celebrities, including NFL star Joe Namath (she didn't recognize him), political activist Jerry Rubin (she threw him off her set, on-air), and comedian Richard Pryor (they argued about poverty on 'The Tonight Show'). Dan O'Shannon, the writer/producer of 'Cheers' and 'Modern Family' and a Cleveland native, wrote the book's foreword. In it, he refers to Cleveland's early TV professionals as, 'pioneers, a community of inspired, dedicated, artistic, lucky and just plain insane human beings.' 'Cleveland TV Tales: Stories from the Golden Age of Local Television' (Gray & Co.; $15.95; softcover; 187 pages; 60 photos) is available at Northeast Ohio bookstores and online from Amazon.com. More information at www.grayco.com. About the Authors: Mike and Janice Olszewski are a husband-and-wife team. Mike is a veteran Cleveland radio and television personality and the curator and archivist for the Ohio Broadcast Archive and Museum. He teaches media and communications at Kent State University, the University of Akron and Notre Dame College and is the author of two books about radio: 'Radio Days' and 'WIXY 1260.'

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESSBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESS
by Joseph Baker - Oct 24, 2014

THE HEIRESS, Ruth and Augustus Goetz's 1947 adaptation of Henry James' WASHINGTON SQUARE and currently occupying the Lohrey Stage at Theatre Memphis, has had a long and steady run on stages throughout the world - and why not? Tightly corseted, polite to a fault, and observing proprieties, this intelligently written script captures the essence of the James source material without the convoluted, complex sentences that, alas, repel many readers. As tautly drawn as the material on one of the samplers for which its heroine is noted, when one of the characters punctuates the prevailing politeness with a barbed or telling line of dialogue, it's as if a sharp and jagged blade suddenly ripped through the fabric of the needlework itself. All this play needs for a successful run is a handsome set, period costumes - and four or five gifted players. (more...)

BWW Review: BIRDMAN Is a Remarkable Fever Dream Worthy of Both Stage and ScreenBWW Review: BIRDMAN Is a Remarkable Fever Dream Worthy of Both Stage and Screen
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 24, 2014

Full disclosure, I like most everything that I see; be it on stage, on TV, or on film. I tend to appreciate the vision required to complete such a complicated project, the artistry to craft a new work, and the creativity to bring it to life. However, while I like the majority of shows and movies that I watch, I love very few. I wanted to preface my review with that because, simply put, I loved BIRDMAN. The Experience of seeing this dark comedy is as close to the rush of seeing a Broadway show as any film that I can ever remember seeing, including those actually based on Broadway shows. BIRDMAN is an acting, directing, and cinematographing triumph that is sure to be rewarded throughout the upcoming awards season. (more...)
