Wednesday ebruary 16 1566 Buffalo Evening News 'Amusements Section IV — 61 J The Right 'Way' at Studio Arena Between times he tries absorb the director’s point of view for when he departs usually a day or two after the opening Mr Way’s responsibility is to see to it that the show remains on an even keel and does not fly apart Stage manager is a middle position liable to private criticism? bringing little pubic praise The Studio Arena Theater’s is Jim Way 28 married a university graduate whose aspirations include writing and directing for films Heis at the right hand of the director of every show and is obliged to know precisely what the left hand is doing as well He also must be professionally ambidextrous Evenings he sees that the show on stage runs as smoothly as-the director has indicated Days he confers with the newly-arrived director providing for him the theater’s production resources Absorbs Point of View He“depends naturally on the special abilities of the directors oflighting sets costumes properties and sound ‘ JfeJnsures that the director lacks nothing for the creation of hisshow Since a stage show at its best Is a creative effort once each evening it is a fragile affair-vulnerable to any deviations or well-intentioned changes in the script by the players If an actor wishes to experiment with a new idea it is Mr Way’s decision About his job he prefers not to give a precise definition and talks about it in round-about anecdotal fashion "I can tell you what I do but that’s not exactly what the job is either” he said "I like to I try to think of it as creative Works Long Hours "My wife often doesn’t see me for days All of us including Neal Du Brock stay at the toi theater work and nap when one show is' coming down and another is going up Long hours But that isn’t all it is either "I see my job as making the actors as comfortable as pbs-sible A stage manager once said to me that no matter how perfectly a production was without actors no one would pay a dime to see it That’s a valid point So I believe the actors shouldn’t have to worry about a thing except their performances "Let’s see Another thing a show has a rhythm The director imposes a rhythm derived from his interpretation of the author’s play It’s -my job to discover that rhythm and stay true to it "Something else Huckleberry inn says someplace that some people eat white bread and the rest of us eat corn bread Only the finest people eat white bread "Well in an intellectual not a- social sense this theater is giving Buffalo while bread Real Whitebread" — T D b® i f MI'S 4 i i JIM WAY Theater’s Stage Manager Carrier Is Decommissioned SAN RANCISCO eb 16 (UPI)— The 20-year-old aircraft carrier Midway was decommissioned Tuesday before undergoing a $75 million modernization job AT KEINHANS HALL By John Dwyer Koeckert Quartet ollows Mellow Tradition The Koeckert Quartet follows an old European tradition — mellowness and containment no virtuoso fireworks outside of the musical context but a strong reach for the longer lines and larger forms Violinists Rudolf Koeckert and his son Rudolf Jr violist Oscar Riedl and cellist Josef Merz appeared Tuesday evening in Kleinhans Mary Seaton Room on the Buffalo Chamber Music Society series THEY ORMED the ensemble in Prague after World War II and then established headquarters in Munich They play everywhere in Europe at festivals and recitals and have recorded a large array of works There is an American approach perhaps also a tradition by now which serves notice that the American quartet no less musicianly will be brilliant if possible and occasionally for its own sake " The American listener then may take a little time to adjust to the dynamics of such a group as the Koeckert and its more inward-turning style But the adjustment will be more than worthwhile THE HAYDN OP 33 No 3 Is one of six dedicated to the Grand Duke Paul of Russia and this one is called the "Bird’’ quartet for its singing trills in the first movement and the violin-duo caroling of its scherzo trio But the work has far more size and human breadth than this captious title The shuddering fates that sometimes menace the fragile salon ethos in the machine age decreed that an ambulance with open siren should hurtle by as the violins were dancing their feathery trio caper largely on the basic chord of C-E-G and its dominant But the resources of fate are as endless as ironic and the siren stayed more or less on the "G” of the chord through its quick crescendo and fade-out blending in and saving the day A half-tone lower or higher and one might have written off the program’s most delicate episode THE ENSUING Adagio was dark-hued and touching and the closing Presto speedy and controlled ending in a high-style rubato which sparked a burst of applause The Shostakovich Quartet No 7 mystic modal theme inverted into a chaconne wild fugato finale variation on the original air in big unisons and obbligato figures was played with authority and a deep-bowed exploration of the resonance This group has a very fine violist The Beethoven Op 130 much of it a reprieve from the melancholy of the master’s late years though with the heartfelt affliction of the Cavatina was expressed In strength and simplicity with excellent control in the many transitions of mood and tempo The players were given a warm reception and surely will be welcome on a return visit Mental Hospital Planned ALBANY eb 16 W — The State Mental Hygiene Department said Tuesday it plans to' construct a 500-bed hospital for the mentally ill on a 17-acre' site next to Albany Medical’ Center Hospital Construction to begin next year will be finished by 1970 A tree-top aerial survey has revealed evidence of two 1500 year-old Mayan highways in Mexico not now on
