C2 LivinglArts The Boston Globe WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 2 003 dairies Carol Beggy Thrussell moves on to his next stage; local chefs cook for Goodall CURTAIN CALL FOR THRUSSELL Boston Ballet principal dancer Paul Thrussell will be leaving the company he has called home for nearly 10 years when the run of "Romeo and Juliet" comes to a close May 18. (Thrussell will be dancing the roles of Mercutio and Romeo in the production, which opens May 8.) "If s been a wonderful time," Thrussell said yesterday between rehearsals. "It is my choice to leave, but Boston Ballet will still go on, and it will be wonderful." Born in England, Thrussell received his training at the Royal Ballet School in London and danced with the Northern Ballet Theatre and the London City Ballet before coming to Boston in the 1993 season. Thrussell said he will not be hanging up his dance shoes; rather, he will be dancing in Milwaukee. "I was thinking about retiring, but there seems like there's so much more for me to dance," he said. He will dance the role of Mercutio on opening night and will close out his tenure with the company as Romeo on May 17, dancing with principal Jennifer Gelf and. "It will be great to get to dance with her again," he said. GOOD ON GOODALL By the time folks gathered at Hamersley's Monday night for a benefit dinner featuring cooking by six of Boston's best chefs to honor primate expert Jane Goodall, all the heavy lifting of getting an award and unveiling a new Imax film about chimps in Tanzania was over. It was time for local supporters and friends to enjoy themselves. "I used to be a waitress," Goodall said, relating how she worked in a restaurant to save enough money for her first trip to Africa. Goodall was given the 2003 Global Environmental Citizen Award by the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard's Medical School on Monday for her work with primates and on creating sustain able agriculture, which the center's director, Dr. Eric Chivian, noted was really all part of the same process. The dinner featured organic produce some of which was from Massachusetts environmentally raised livestock, seafood caught using sustainable fishing methods, organic wine, and free-trade coffee. Looking into the kitchen with host chef Gordon Ha-mersley, the cheery Goodall announced she is a vegetarian and said: "I'm interested to see what you all can do. . . . Most chefs have a funny idea what vegetarians should eat I'm looking forward to eating your vegetables." OF POLITICS AND DINING We're sure with a lineup like they had Monday night, there'll be a second one. What was billed as the first "annual" dinner for the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School at UpStairs on the Square included a spectacular list of luminaries: Samantha Power, founding executive director of the center and recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize for her book "A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide"; Boston Redevelopment Authority chief Mark Maloney; Supreme Judicial Court chief justice Margaret Marshall and her husband, Anthony Lewis of The New York Times; author Rose Styron; architect Guy Grassi; and former American Repertory Theatre artistic director Robert Bru-stein and his wife, Doreen. The evening was hosted natch by Mary-Catherine Deibel and Deborah Hughes.

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER Maybe you can step in the same river twice. Two years ago, Dennis Lehane's novel "Mystic River" scaled the bestseller charts. The movie version produced, directed, and scored by Clint Eastwood and starring Sean Penn, Kevin Bacon, and Tim Robbins is set to be released in October. Reprising that theme, the Boston-based Lehane's latest psychological thriller, "Shutter Island," was published two weeks ago, and if s already at No. 1 2 on The New York Times bestseller list and No. 9 on the Publishers Weekly list Another movie is in the works, this one directed by Wolfgang Petersen, who made "The Perfect Storm." Lehane is on a 17-city book tour, and PW reports 150,000 copies in print. Set in 1954, the action happens in a hospital for the criminally insane on a Boston Harbor island. COAST TO COAST It's not easy for an author of books for young readers to get attention, but Boston's M. T. Anderson has been making waves recently with his eerie futuristic novel, "Feed," which just won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the young adult fiction category. The book was also a finalist for the 2002 National Book Award. In the story, kids' brains are wired into television and other entertainment media from birth, making them totally driven by consumer marketing. This is fiction?
