Theodore Mann, Off Broadway Producer, Dies at 87

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Broadway just three years earlier — that put the company on the map. “Nothing has happened for quite a long time as admirable as the new production at the Circle in the Square,” Brooks Atkinson wrote in The Times. When the original premises were demolished in 1960, the theater moved to a new location on Bleecker Street. After Quintero left the company, Mr. Mann in 1963 teamed up with Paul Libin, who became his co-producer on work that included classics, mid-century American drama and plays by emerging voices like Terrence McNally, Jules Feiffer and John Patrick Shanley. At the invitation of Mayor John V. Lindsay in 1972, Circle in the Square moved uptown into a new Broadway theater on 50th Street. The theater opened with Dewhurst in “Mourning Becomes Electra,” one of many productions directed by Mr. Mann, who returned frequently to the work of O’Neill and Williams. Circle in the Square ceased operating as a producing entity in the late 1990s, but its Broadway theater continues to carry its name. The Circle School continues, with about 200 students a year. Circle in the Square received a special Tony Award in 1976 for 25 continuous years of quality productions. Mr. Mann’s memoir, “Journey in the Night: Creating a New American Theatre With Circle in the Square,” was published in 2007. Mr. Mann was married in 1953 to the lyric soprano Patricia Brooks, who died in 1993. Besides his son Jonathan, he is survived by another son, Andrew, and five grandchildren. (New York Times)

Jeffery sits out drills at combine - Greenville News

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Carolina players at the combine, joining strong safety Antonio Allen, cornerback Stephen Gilmore, defensive end Melvin Ingram, defensive tackle Travian Robertson and offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins. Ingram has found a pretty decent workout partner and mentor leading up to the combine - Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, the 2011-12 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Joby Branion is the agent for Ingram and Miller, which led to the two working on linebacker drills together in California. Following the same success curve as his workout partner would be fine with Ingram. “I pray to God I do because he had a tremendous impact,” said Ingram, who will perform on-field workouts today. draft analyst Gil Brandt has Ingram listed as the 8th best prospect in the draft, regardless of position; and the second-best defensive end.

Sonny Wilson, bartender at Alex's, was Midtown icon

Fri, Feb 24, 2012
Mr. Wilson was born near Starkville, Miss., and made his way to Memphis when he was 16, about a year before Alex's opened on Jackson Avenue near Watkins. Mr. Wilson started there sometime in the mid-'60s, working for several years as one of four African-American servers who wore white jackets while waiting on customers. "(Mr. Kasaftes) sort of took Sonny in and gave him work," said Mr. Wilson's widow, Frances. "He loved that old man." Mr. Wilson met Frances about the same time he started at Alex's. She was a young college student from Clarksdale selling hot dogs at the Vance YMCA. Mr. Wilson would stand guard over her at the stand, scaring away persistent suitors, until they eventually fell in love. They were married 46 years. Mr. Wilson had the same chivalrous attitude on the job, where he was known to tip his hat to female customers and walk unescorted women to their cars. Though he worked other jobs over the years, Mr. Wilson, an unflappable wit and jokester, stayed on at Alex's after Alex Kasaftes' death and the bar's tr... (The Commercial Appeal)

Coaching paths from Furman, Clemson and Vandy come together - Greenville News

Ben Gazzara, Actor of Stage and Screen, Dies at 81

Sun, Feb 5, 2012
Man,” about life in a Southern military academy. Developed at the Actors Studio, it opened on Broadway in 1953. “Jocko is attractive, clever and alert on the surface, but evil at the core,” Brooks Atkinson wrote in The Times, “and Mr. Gazzara’s acting perfectly expresses this ambivalence.” Then, in March 1955, came “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” in which he played the alcoholic son Brick to Burl Ives’s Big Daddy in the Tennessee Williams classic, with Barbara Bel Geddes as Maggie. Elia Kazan directed. The play ran till November 1956, but Mr. Gazzara left the cast early to take another Broadway role, in “A Hatful of Rain,” which opened in the fall of 1955.

Local residents remember the day Martin Luther King came to town - Greenville News

Sun, Jan 22, 2012
It was a Sunday, the day he saw Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak. “He had a deep voice, and his voice was very inspiring in how he talked,” said Garrett, 87, now president of Watkins, Garrett & Woods Mortuary. “He was outstanding, and anybody, if they were in his presence, if he was speaking to you, you would listen. And you’d be inspired too.” King had come to Greenville at the request of local civil rights leaders, and Garrett, who then worked at the Clemson Agricultural Extension Service, saw him speak that spring afternoon almost 45 years ago.
