Las Vegas - December 24, 2010


Merry Christmas, Dorothy Reynolds

Talk about a Christmas present!!!
On Tuesday, December 21st, Fallbrook, California, visitor, Dorothy Reynolds, won $2,948.494.50 on a progressive Wizard of Oz WMS Gaming penny slot machine at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The lucky lady travels to Las Vegas twice a year with her husband, Don. For this week-long trip, Dorothy was also joined by her daughter and son-in-law, Jill and Gary Crosswhite, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Reynolds has always been a fan of slot machines and jokes that her win on the Wizard of Oz machine, and her name, Dorothy, "must have been meant to be." She plans to spend the holidays in her hometown with her two daughters and nine grandchildren who "may be surprised at this year's Christmas presents." David Hoenemeyer, general manager of Planet Hollywood, stated, "This is not only a place where million dollar motion pictures are filmed, it's a place where millionaires are made. We are always thrilled to see our casino guests' dreams come true." Reynolds had played on the winning machine for three hours, and had invested nearly $500, when she hit the jackpot. She received the first of her winnings with a check for $147,000, and celebrated by continuing to play slot machines with her daughter. Once she is back home, Reynolds will review her options as to whether she should take the rest of her winnings in one lump sum or in payments over the next 10-20 years. Were that we all had to deal with this kind of decision.

Frankie Laine Christmas

Frankie Laine Album Cover

We have received some interesting holiday greetings - both courtesy of the US Postal Service and via e-mail. We will share a few of them with our readers...
From Team Frankie Laine - made up of Frankie's last manager, Jimmy Marino and his wife Barbara; musical director, Benny Hollman and his wife Dorothy; and assistant, Mary-Jo Coombs - comes a vintage photo of Old Leather Lungs. Team Frankie Laine is dedicated to keeping the image and music of Frankie Laine alive and in the minds and hearts of all his fans worldwide. The singer/songwriter/actor's career spanned more than 70 years. Among his many hits were "That's My Desire," "Jezebel," "That Lucky Old Sun," "Mule Train," "Moonlight Gambler," "High Noon," "Rawhide," "Blazing Saddles" and "Lord You Gave Me a Mountain." As for his Las Vegas history, in the late 1940s, an Associated Press photo of him on a Vegas stage went all around the world, showing that there was more going on in this little desert town than legalized gambling. Frankie performed here every decade, from the '40s to his last appearance at the brand new Suncoast in November of 2000. Here is a little Frankie Laine trivia. The portrait (watercolor, I believe) of Laine on the cover of one of his last albums, 1998's Wheels Of A Dream, is signed with the single name, Benedetto. For those who do not already know, Benedetto is how Tony Bennett signs his art work. Wheels Of A Dream was Laine's 25th album. What makes it most remarkable is that Frankie was 85 when he recorded it. Here is a customer review from the Amazon Web site, regarding Wheels Of A Dream. If you were/are a fan, we suggest adding this recording to your music collection...Backed by first class arrangements and musicians, this album recalls the high quality recordings of Frankie Laine's years with Columbia. So far as Laine's performance goes -- well, the man is simply a master. The songs cover a wide variety of styles, spanning approximately 50 years (1930s - 80s) of popular music, and Laine puts them all across with style. From a poignant interpretation of "Young at Heart," to jazzy version of "Moonglow," to a wonderful big band arrangement of "How Sweet It Is," Laine captures the heart of music on take after take. "Until Now," "They Call the Wind Maria," and "Song of India" are nothing short of amazing -- in the latter number, Laine's voice could almost be coming straight out of 1952. This is one of my all-time favorite albums. Frankie Laine died in 2007 at the age of 93. Although he is no longer with us, his music lives on. As one year, that has been very difficult for many, comes to an end, and a new one begins, listen to Frankie sing a song of hope in Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl and Al Stillman's beautiful and inspiring, "I Believe." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9d3KYaI0U14.


Charlie Frye & Company Greeting

Kessler & Jackson Greeting

Then there is also the much anticipated annual holiday greeting from entertainers, Charlie and Sherry Frye, who perform under the name Charlie Frye & Company (with Sherry being the "Company"). The twosome work almost all the time, but not often enough in Southern Nevada where they have a home. Years ago, Charlie and Sherry could usually be seen as specialty acts in Las Vegas production shows such as From the Top at the Sahara, David Wright's Xposed at the Plaza, Splash at the Riviera, Les Folies Bergere at the Tropicana, and Donn Arden's Jubilee! and CATagious with The Magic of Dirk Arthur, both at Bally's. The Fryes also toured with Liza Minnelli as her opening act. These days, with fewer local productions, they don't spend much time around these parts. Most of their jobs take them far from Las Vegas. In addition to his skill as a comedy juggler, Charlie is an excellent cartoonist. Not only can he draw, his sharp comedic mind also comes up with the clever sentiments to accompany the art work. For this seasons' Norman Rockwell-inspired card, the inside text states, "I'm dreaming of a white trash Christmas." We might also mention that Charlie is the creator of Cousin Claire's portrait at the top of this column.

Michael Kessler and Melinda Jackson make up the dance team of M&M. Among their many credits, with and without their American Dance Theatre company, the duo has performed on Broadway in Tommy Tune's Grand Hotel, and in Las Vegas at The Orleans and South Point hotel and casinos, and the Starbright Theatre.

Musical couple, Steven Lee and Brenda Leonard Cowart, included their dogs, Sasha, Ice and Debo, in their photo greeting.

F.I.O.R.E. Greeting Committee

Breck Wall 2001

Obviously the good word travels far and wide. In spite of a poor economy, the rush of getting ready for the holidays, and many social events to choose from, a large number of fun-seekers (thank you, Jackie Vernon) decided to join the F.I.O.R.E. (Fun Italians Organizing Ridiculous Events) presidents and their first ladies at last Saturday night's Christmas shindig. F.I.O.R.E. gatherings have no issues. No agenda. No egos. No bull sh_t (okay, maybe just a little). Just a good time with nice people. Even our former Lt. Governor and her crooning husband must have heard about all the fun and games that go on at the F.I.O.R.E. soirees, as they opted to spend their Saturday night at the Italian American Club, with the approximately 110 other partygoers, instead of hanging out at their own place at the south end of Las Vegas Blvd. Of course the duo took their turn on stage to grace the crowd with a musical number. We do wish they would learn a new tune. We think they should get their own song, and leave "Our Love Is Here To Stay" to the couple who do it best, Steve and Eydie (as in Lawrence and Gorme). F.I.O.R.E. prides itself on doing nothing except having a good time. No pretense regarding raising money for charily, although the group is full of very charitable members who do things out of the kindness of their hearts. The parties features buffet meals, a (mostly) live band, entertainment, and raffles, giving away gifts as well as money. Phil Carlino, one of the F.I.O.R.E. presidents, who was lucky enough to win a chunk of change, donated back the winnings, plus a couple of thousand more dollars, to Three Square, an organization that feeds the hungry in our community. These are the kinds of people you will find at these non-club club meetings and parties. We spotted some faces we hadn't seen for some time, including entertainer Carme Pitrello, visiting from Florida, and his daughter Samina; director Giovanna Sardelli in from New York for the occasion; car dealer/casino owner Jim Marsh; and former Las Vegas radio and TV anchor Harley Akers. A good time was had by all. In order to become a F.I.O.R.E. president, the requirements are that men (it's a boys group, with first ladies invited for specific occasions during the year - Valentine's Day, Christmas, Halloween, F.I.O.R.E.'s anniversary. In order to become involved with F.I.O.R.E., one MUST be Italian...or not. For further information about this group, contact Nelson Sardelli at [email protected]
Shown in the accompanying photo (left to right): Nelson Sardelli, Rolando Larraz, Jim Marsh and Lou Toomin.

As for Three Square, it is the Vegas Valley's food hub; a central location where donated and rescued food can be collected and distributed. We provide bakery, produce, dairy, non-perishable products and ready-to-eat meals to non-profit and faith-based organizations. We also facilitate childhood and senior nutrition programs. We are a place for members of the community to meet, serve and collaborate as part of the food solution. A national model project, Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with the gaming industry, businesses, non-profit agencies, food distributors, UNLV, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media and hundreds of volunteers to efficiently and effectively serve hope to the hungry. For additional information about this organization, call (702) 644-FOOD (3663).

And speaking of Jim Marsh, all of the presidents of the F.I.O.R.E. Non Club-Club, have unanimously agreed to present Marsh with the first Wilted Flower Award given by the organization. It was March who recently came up with the thousands of dollars required for a local, uninsured entertainer to get her surgery. We will have details about this event, which will be co-ed (that means both boys AND girls will be invited to attend), in the next couple of weeks.

We are still getting feedback regarding that local entertainer who needed surgery but had no insurance or money to cover it. From actor Bart Williams comes this message...Regarding the lack of insurance for the medical treatment/surgery of some entertainers. That is the reason for the various Entertainment UNIONS! There was a time when the venues in Las Vegas were proud of having Union Professionals working under UNION CONTRACTS in their Performance Rooms. Now, everything seems to be Produced Non-Union, and there is no group Insurance policy keeping the performers safe. The Union of Variety Artists (A.G.V.A.) should be representing ALL of the shows and the performers in them, in Vegas. If the show has a "Book," then the Union would be Actors Equity Association. Very few places will produce any "Book-Theatrical" because they don't want to Produce a real UNION show. This whole Country is overwhelmed by GREED! Just a passing thought.

We received this note from Nancy Grote in St. Augustine, Florida...
I am a former 'Bottoms Upper' in '76 & '77 and my name was Nancy Meadows then. I was very saddened to learn of Breck Wall's passing several weeks ago. I live in Florida now but I'm so glad I was able to see him twice within the last 8-10 years out in Vegas. I understand from your column that we will learn the details of a memorial tribute to him at a yet-to-be-named showroom. Would you have any news on that yet? (it's prob too soon)...I would dearly love to try and get out there for that. Thanks so much.
You are welcome, Nancy, and it is not too soon to provide you and other interested readers with some of the information regarding the upcoming tribute to the late Breck Wall. The time for this get-together is Sunday, February 20th at 3 p.m. It will take place in the showroom at the South Point Hotel/Casino, 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. So., at Silverado Ranch Blvd. They will need to know how many will be attending to make sure they have enough room for everyone.

Please RSVP to [email protected] Friends will be able to post personal memories of Breck, and selected postings will be read at the tribute. Please click here to e-mail your Breck Wall stories: Breck Wall Tribute. The South Point will be offering special room rates for those attending the tribute in honor of Breck. A code will be posted here soon.

Since this is a special time of year for children, we want you to see one of the cutest Vegas show biz kids, Jacob "Jakey" Weiss (photo shown in this column), two-year-old son of dancer Anastasia and actor/singer Marcus Weiss. After more than a decade in the Blue Man Group, at the Luxor and The Venetian in Las Vegas, as well as in Germany, and a number of years with the Second City improvisational troupe at the Flamingo, these nights Marcus is a clown in Le Reve at Wynn. We have also spotted Marcus in TV commercials, most recently in a Target spot. In 2003, this talented man played the lead role in Deanna Duplechain's Nevada Theater Company's production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by an East German transgender singer. The story is told directly to the audience by Hedwig in the form of an extended monologue. As a result, the character is in the spotlight through the entire show. Hedwig premiered off-Broadway in 1998, and has since been performed throughout the world in hundreds of stage productions, gathering a devoted cult following similar to that of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. To say this was a tour de force role for Weiss would be an understatement. After seeing his amazing performance, we took the opportunity to view the 2000, filmed adaptation of the musical starring the author/actor/ director, John Cameron Mitchell. We felt that Marcus gave a better performance. In fact, we would like to see him do it again. Mrs. Weiss, Anastasia, is a teacher at Fairytales and Tutus, an enchanted dance studio located at 7071 W. Craig Road #104, in Las Vegas, that offers Fairytale Ballet classes as well as Kindermusik, Yoga, and Story Time for children, ranging from infancy to age seven. For additional information about Fairytales and Tutus, call (702) 489-3603.

We were saddened to learn of the death on Tuesday, December 21st, of actress Marcia Lewis. Marcia Lewis, the brassy and beloved musical star of hit Broadway revivals of Grease! and Chicago, died in Nashville, where she lived. She was 72 and had been battling lung and brain cancer. Ms. Lewis could make herself heard without the aid of a mike. She liked to tell the story how, while making her Broadway debut with Ethel Merman in the original Hello, Dolly!, the Broadway legend told her, "Marcia, you and I are never going to have to worry about reaching the balcony." Also on Broadway, Lewis played the comically evil Miss Hannigan in the original run of Annie, Rachel Halpern in the short-lived Rags, Golde in a 1990 revival of Fiddler on the Roof, and squared off with Vanessa Redgrave as the distrusting Nurse Porter in Orpheus Descending. It was in the 1990s, when she was in her 50s, that Marcia Lewis achieved her greatest fame. She was Miss Lynch in the critically disliked but long-running 1994 revival of Grease!, and nominated for a Tony Award for her work. Two years later, she stepped into a black pant-suit and fire-red lipstick as the saucy, hard-as-nails Matron "Mama" Morton in John Kander and Fred Ebb's Chicago. She owned two of the revivals show-stoppers: "When You're Good to Mama," in which she suggestively detailed the house rules of the women's jail she ruled with a velvet fist; and "Class," in which she and murderer Velma Kelly mourned, in quite blue language, how the world had grown vulgar. ("JE-sus Christ!" she bellowed, "ain't there no decency left?") Her work is preserved on the revival's cast album. In 2001, Ms. Lewis, who had been previously wed once before, wed Nashville businessman, Fred Bryan, a financial advisor who had seen Chicago 15 times. The two had met in 1999 at the anniversary party of friends. The wedding was attended by a host of Broadway stars, including Gary Beach, Karen Ziemba, Conrad John Schuck, Tommy Tune, Sandy Duncan, Linda Lavin, Joel Gray and our friend, Lee Roy Reams. In a couple of Vegas connections, Lewis played Sister Mary Hubert in the first 'star' company of Nunsense with Kaye Ballard and Jaye P. Morgan. Nunsense is currently at the Las Vegas Hilton, with Michelle Johnson in the role of Sister Mary Hubert. Marcia portrayed Mama Morton, appearing with Chita Rivera and Ben Vereen in the Las Vegas production of Chicago at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Jermaine Jackson

* * * * * * *

According to TMZ, covering Celebrity Gossip and Entertainment News on both TV and their Internet site, just one week after he went to court claiming he couldn't afford to pay child support, Jermaine Jackson filed a police report claiming someone stole more than $150,000 in jewelry, furs, and clothes. Law enforcement sources said that Jackson and his wife, Halina Rashid, claim that someone took a Louis Vuitton bag containing the treasure trove from their Calabasas, California, home back in September. The home, which Jermaine rents, is in the same gated community where his mother, Katherine Jackson, is temporarily living while her Encino home undergoes extensive renovation. Jermaine, who we consider the most annoying of the Jackson brothers, claimed the bag contained some ultra-expensive watches, among other pricey items. The case is under investigation, but so far no suspects. As for the child support issue, this Jackson claimes that he couldn't afford the $3,000 a month for his kids, Jaafar and Jermajesty (yes, those are really their names), and that he would like the payment reduced to $215 a month. (We bet he would.) It doesn't take a mathematician to figure this one out. Another Internet site, called Bossip, says "This year has been the year of financial unraveling and embarrassment for Jermaine Jackson. But now we find out that his transgressions as a father go further than naming a kid Jermajesty, but not making sure that you can take care of them. Deadbeat Jermaine just filed a police report claiming someone jacked $150k worth of clothes, jewelry and furs from him. You're living gated and global and not paying child support? We bet your co-baby mama was involved in planning that robbery."

We're glad that somebody else said it so that we didn't have to go at this Grinch.
