) -- Tuesday. Pre. 20. 1983 Philadplphm Inquirer 5-D Today's book f ft i Theater: Musical of Bowie songs By Ken Tucker Inquirer Popular-Music Critic Suffragette City 1984, the misbegotten musical that is being performed Tuesdays through Sundays at Grendel's Lair, tries to find truth, profundity and a plot in a bunch of songs by rocker David Bowie and winds up seeming merely earnest and confused. As it has been hatched by Suze DiPietro, the action of Suffragette City 1984 lakes place on one night, Dec. 31, 1983. DiPietro, who is billed as "conceptualizer and director," informs us in her program notes that a character called Jeangenie rules the world. "There is no thinking other than his own," writes DiPietro. "Creativity, independence, individuality, friendship are replaced by Jean-genie's absolute control." Working with this hooey, DiPietro has dispensed with dialogue and attempts to tell a story via the physical movements of her cast and the lyrics of a group of Bowie songs. Most of these tunes are from Bowie's mid-70s "glam-rock" period such touchstones of the era as "Rebel Rebel," "JeanGenie" and "Starman." Now, no one has ever accused David Bowie of having a sense of humor as a cultural avatar, he's always been limited by a crippling sense of irony and self-importance. At the same time, it's easy to see what attracted DiPietro to the idea of turning Bowie music into a theatrical piece. More than any other rock star, Bowie has acted out the characters he creates with formal skill. It always puis things into perspective, I lliink, to remember that Bowie was trained as a mime. Review Nonetheless, Suffragette City 1984 has been written and directed with an overwrought solemnity that makes Bowie's music sound pompous and arid. At Grendel's Lair, the volume is much too low, as if someone were afraid of offending the eardrums of some of the older patrons; the drums are buried in the sound mix, and thus the compelling rhythms of this music are almost totally obscured. This makes most of the dancing a series of melodramatic, achingly sincere stretching movements that one associates with bad modern dance from a decade ago seem as if everyone were groping for the beat rather than dancing to it. The actors a six-person cast including DiPietro are obviously talented, and Shaun Moran, as Jeangenie, is particularly charming and strong-voiced in a role that seems determined to make him look alternately petulant and stupid. But Moran and the rest are called upon to do little more than grimace morosely or sneer furiously while singing Bowie songs in an exaggerated, Broadway-style manner. It is as if no one realized what Bowie brought to theatricalism: rock 'n' roll's invigorating naturalism and unpreten-tiousness. As its title implies, Suffragette City 1984 attempts to link Bowie's greatest hits to Orwellian pessimism, and the result is a draggy downer full of half-digested thoughts. THE CAST of "Suffragette City 1984": Bender, Melodee Mercer, Dorothy Hamp-(clockwise from top) Shaun Moran, Gene ton, Michael Bennett and Suze DiPietro. Remembrances of musicians past at the old Blue Note The trombone player left the bar at the Society Hill Hotel, 301 Chestnut St., and headed for the corner occupied by Ted Gerike and his piano. "Ted, you have to talk to this guy 1 met at the bar. You won't believe who it is." "Who?" "He used to own the old Blue Note club at Broad and Ridge." Ted left the piano, put on one of his jazz tapes and headed for the bar. Sure enough, the trombone player's new friend was Lou Church, who operated the jazz club until it burned down in 1957. Now living in Florida, he was in Philadelphia for a few days to visit friends. So Ted and Lou started talking about old Blue Note regulars people like John Coltrane, Buddy Rich and Zoot Sims. ' "I'm surprised to meet somebody' By JOHN CORR On the town who remembers the old Blue Note," Church said. "I've got another surprise for you," Ted said. "Listen to the tape that's playing now." The tape was a vocal backed by Zoot Sims and Al Cohn. The singer was Kid Haffey. "I don't believe it," Church said. Ted says he has perhaps the only surviving tape of Kid Haffey singing. Blue Note old-timers might remember the Kid as the doorman who would go inside and sing on quiet nights. "A quiet night was when they didn't expect to get raided," Ted said. "They got raided a lot, and the Kid had a switch ringed up so he could flick the inside lights on and off as soon as he saw the cops." So Gerike foraged around and came up with some other old tapes, and Church ended up spending more time at the Society Hill Hotel bar than he had expected, listening to music and remembering the old days. HOLIDAY RESTAURANTS: La Buca, 711 Locust St., will be open Christmas Eve and will be serving the traditional "feast of the seven fishes," a multicourse dinner priced at $19. Places open Christmas Day and serving traditional dinners include October, 26 S. Front St., Cafe Nola, 328 South St., and the Versailles dining room in the Bellevue Stratford. Also open Christmas Day are all 21 of the H A. Winston & Co. restaurants, the two Rib-It restaurants and Frankie Bradley's, Juniper and Chancellor Streets, which is known for its steaks. In general, you can expect restaurants in hotels to be open both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. HOT STUFF: I wouldn't have thought it possible, but there is now a place wilh horseradish that surpasses in potency even the stuff orr the tables at Old Original Bookbinder's, Walnut and Second Streets. The horseradish in question is served at the new oyster bar at Rick's Cabaret, 757 S. Front St., and it should be investigated by the Nuclear Regula tory Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency and the FBI. MUSIC: There is now music Wednesday through Sunday at Bridget Foy's. Second and South Streets Owner John Foy recently made some changes there, including installation of a cozy fireplace, and changed the name from Fast Ph illy Cale to Bridget Foy's. (John has a 17-month-old daughter, and I'll bet yon ran guess her name ) Sannas. seafood restaurant at 2.W Chestnut St.. is running a prehohdav dinner special through Thursday It's a whole lobster, salad, potatoes, dessert and coffee for $11.95. . . . A new children's drink has been created at the Rib-It restaurants, and it's called (what else?) Cabbage Patch Punch Recapping the 76ers' rise to top WE OWED YOU ONE! The Uphill Struggle of the Philadelphia 76ers. P3y Pat Williams and Bill Lyon. Trimark. $17.95. Hard-core Sixers junkies should add We Owed You One! to their roster of sports books. It's a readable recapitulation ot how the franchise was rebuilt, piece by piece, from its embarrassing low point 10 years ago, when it lost 73 games. Written by Inquirer sports columnist Bill Lyon and team general manager Pat Williams, the book is an account, through Williams' eyes, of the accumulation of talent that resulted in last spring's National Bas ketball Association (NBA) championship. The book has so much ground to cover more than 10 years that there is no time to step back, for perspective. Or to look rloser, for insight. Hut any book with a cast of characters that includes Darryl Dawkins, Harold Katz and Pepper the Singmu Pig is going tn he entertaining You'll read former owner Eugene Fitz Dixon's response when Williams told him that Julius Frving could be acquired: "Now tell me, Pat, who is he?" You'll be reminded that the Sixers could have picked up Moses Malone six years ago but with Or J recent ly aboard, young Moses was consul ered too expensive, too risky If you don't mind the typographi cal errors and random changes in tense, and if you enjoy the kind ot hyperbole that is abundant here, you'll like We Owed You One! (Ot course, if any team lends itself in hyperbole, it's the Sixers ) The conversational approach makes the hook, like Lyon's columns highly readable, bright and breezv Fans will have fun reliving the 7heK return to respectability and then, with the arrival of Frving, their sud den dominance Of course, yon will have to face those playoff losses again. The book is consistently funnv and though it contains no stunninu revelations, it gives us a Glimpse nt ihe intrigue and lurk - that i;o into NBA team-building There are two noteworthy departures from the narrative.
