One Night with Fanny Brice

July 20, 2014 - 3:00pm

 The Open Eye Theater in Margaretville, NY, is pleased to present "One Night with Fanny Brice" starring Patricia Dell in a solo musical by Chip Deffaa showcasing the life of one of America's most talented and well-loved performers of the first part of the 20th century.  Performances are July 10-20.  Through stories and music of her life and career from Brooklyn to Baby Snooks, audiences will meet the fascinating and complicated woman known to all as Fanny Brice.  They'll learn how her music and comedy dazzled the crowds who came to the great extravaganzas of The Ziegfeld Follies--and dazzled the men in her life.

Young Fania Borach got her start singing for coins at amateur shows in New York, and then sang and danced in Burlesque.  Flo Ziegfeld saw her work and Fanny made the leap to The Ziegfeld Follies on talent, humor and nerve. She became one of the highest paid performers in the country.  Follies girl Trixie Wilson told biographer Norman Katkov, "Fanny was a big star.  She was the biggest.  You could not have seen Fanny Brice on the stage and forgotten her, not as long as you lived."  Read more

Savor some history July 11

Picture this: It's been a long, hot, stressful week. Finally, Friday. You settle into a comfy hammock,  smooth aged cider in hand, and enjoy the evening bird sounds and the scent of blossoms in the garden. Tunes from the player piano waft through the parlor window. Relax, it's summer in the Catskills.

No hammock? No home-made cider? No player piano? No front porch?

No worries. Tom and Connie Jeffers have all those things and you're invited to enjoy them Friday, July 11 between 5 and 8 p.m. at a Summer Soiree to benefit the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown. Their home is located on Walnut Street, Margaretville. To meet the Jeffers and spend an informally elegant evening among friends old and new, call them at 845-586-4878 by July 5 to let them know you'll be coming.  Read more

A Victorian summer's eve

An evening of simple pleasures  -- garden strolling, porch sitting, cider sipping and a bit of lawn bowling, all enjoyed with background music from the player piano – will be the order of the day at a Summer Soiree Friday, July 11 at The Raven’s Nest, the home of Tom and Connie Jeffers in Margaretville.

The event, which runs from 5 to 8 p.m., is a fundraiser for the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown (HSM). It will include light fare from Mary’s Cookin’ Again, tastings of the Jeffers’ home-made hard cider, and other libations.

Guests will enjoy tours of all three floors of this elegant 1890s home. A restored player piano with its visible workings is sure to fascinate. Choose from among the Jeffers’ collection of several hundred rolls of old time and modern tunes.

Visit the carriage house, with its specially equipped woodworking shop and Cider Room, and the gardens, in full bloom now at the height of summer. Play a game of croquet using a vintage croquet set, and check out the steampunk installation in the parlor. Don’t know what steampunk is? Come find out!  Read more
