'A delightfully funny minstre¿ show' Aquarius stages 'Purlie' By MAE TATE “Purlie,” playing at Hollywood’s Aquarius Theater through Aug. 3, is a delightfully funny minstrel show, rich with social commentary. Los Angeles audiences have long awaited the Broadway musical hit and they need not expect disappointment. Robert Guillaume as Rev. Purlie Victorious Judson is charming and unrelenting in his purpose of righting racial wrongs. He brings both strength and realness to his role as the Southern black preacher with a dream, alternating between the sing-song rhythm speech patterns of the pulpit and the serious, resonant tone of every day talk. He announces his purpose early: “The South Is split in two like a fat man’s underwear. And somebody is going to have to do something about it besides the Supreme Court. ” And what he does sparks laughter and joy at the folly and fun of it all. Patti Jo as Lutiebelle Gussie Mae Jenkins is a refreshing new talent, reminiscent of Melba Moore who created and won acclaim for the role in the original New York production. Her naive whine and adoration' of Rev. Purlie is corny, but not irritating. She delivers “I Got Love” with a strong voice and bright eyes. Norma Donaldson (Mis­ sy) gives strong backup up to the stars. Her speech is natural and unpretentious and her singing voice is rich and full with Purlie’s “Down Home” and Lutiebelle s “He Can Do It” Barry Smith as Gitlow, “deputy in charge of the coloreds,” is good but slightly miscast. He s more like Harry Belafonte than a southern Uncle Tom. His strongest moment is “Easy Goin’ Man. Painting hidden behind another Goldwyn Studio rebuilt LOS ANGELES (AP) The Samuel Goldwyn Studios has been rebuilt on the ashes of the disastrous fire that swept the building May 6, 1974. Amid ceremonies with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, two new sound stages were recently dedicated. Studio manager Jack Foreman termed MILAN. Italy (AP) - A large fresco that experts believe is by Bernardino Luini. one of Leonardo da Vinci’s favorite pupils, has come to light in St. Mark’s Church. The fresco portrays the Virgin Mary with the Holy Child and St John the Baptist. It was concealed beneath a 17th century portrait of St. Barbara The fresco was shown to the public for the first time on Sunday. More such paintings are believed hidden behind other paintings in the church.

The new stages occupy the same space, providing 23,000 square feet of production space. The first show to be made there is “Far Out Space Nuts,” starring Bob Denver and Chuck McCann. It is produced by Sid and Marty Krofft. The 1974 fire began during the making of a show produced by the Krof- fts. Ben Franklin said, “You may delay, but time will not.” èûà C*; I !§§ ém “Purlie” opens with familiar gospel harmony of black folk. Twenty-two voices rejoice and raise like a hundred strong. The audience is thrown immediately into the fury of a talented cast. Although the music slows down, the lines remain powerful and convincing. The sets are realistic and simple. Even the shack Is typically Southern, right down to the newspapers glued here and there, sadly passing for wallpaper. Joyce Brown, musical director, is an unexpected figure in the orchestra pit. She pulls the sounds from the musicians’ Instruments with an experienced baton. Musical set at Upland The Upland Recreation Department will present a performance of a summer musical program by the theater arts department of Chaffey College at the Magnolia Recreation Center at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 1. The program is made up of scenes and songs from Broadway musicals, some of which have been produced at Chaffey in the past. Tickets are $1.50, general admission, $1 for children.
