PARADISE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 Beloved ‘Nutcracker Key West’ takes stage oliday-loving audiences can immerse themselves in the heritage and underwater beauty of the Florida Keys while viewing a classic seasonal ballet during “Nutcracker Key West,” set to begin a sevenshow run Dec. 13. The unique production blends the traditional storyline of “The Nutcracker” with quintessential Florida Keys elements, transforming the tale of young Clara’s dreamlike visit to the land of the Sugarplum Fairy into an island and undersea fantasy. “Nutcracker Key West” stars a 15-member professional corps de ballet along with more than 50 Keys children and other local perform- H ers. Together, they are to bring the timeless story, spiced with a Keys flavor, to life onstage at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, 5901 College Road on the campus of Florida Keys Community College. The cast is directed by classically trained dancer Joyce Stahl, a Key West resident who conceived and created the production after a 38-year career with New Jersey’s American Repertory Ballet. The Key West ballet features dance sequences including a dream battle where toy sailors protect Clara from a Rooster King, recalling the island’s free-range chicken population. A scene set at the Keys’ living coral reef features young children costumed as phosphorescent anemones and colorful fish. “Nutcracker Key West” incorporates elaborate sets and costumes designed by Stahl that are valued at more than $500,000. Many of the costumes for the 2014 production are enhanced with revolutionary fiber-optic and LED lights, expertly crafted to be nearly weightless so dancers can wear them easily. According to show organizers, the “Nutcracker” troupe is one of the first classical ballet companies in the United States to use the new costume technology. Audiences can choose from evening and matinee performances and show dates continue through Dec. 21. Ticket prices begin at $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased online at keystix.com, or by calling 305-295-7676. For information on the show, go to nutcrackerkeywest.com, or facebook.com/nutcracker. keywest. ◆ 3 CALL TO ARTISTS: The Anne McKee Artists Fund of the Florida Keys, Inc. announces a “Call to Artists” for the 2015 Fine Art Auction, to take place Feb. 8 at Fort East Martello Museum.

They have played nearly every major metropolitan area in the United States and Canada, some of the toughest hangouts, as well as the most sophisticated stages in the world, never straying from their course of delivering hard back alley blues and rough rock and roll. Little Mike Markowitz, is a mean harmonica player who cut his teeth in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s, backing up legendary Bluesmen Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, and Jimmy Rogers. He then moved to Florida, and continued to perform and record through the early 2000s. After a hiatus from music, during which he raised his family near Gainesville, he’s playing high-energy blues again. Little Mike’s latest release is titled Forgive Me and he is currently touring in support of it. 6 ◆ PARADISE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 Dog Tired hosts holiday opening costs and is also offering og Tired Studio a 10 percent discount on and Gallery, 1011 Whitehead St., is hav- everything on the premises.

PARADISE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 ◆ 11 What’s up at the Tropic: Friday, Dec. 5 through Thursday, Dec. 11 FEATURE FILMS OPENING FRIDAY: earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane (Felicity Jones, “Like Crazy,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying time. Rated PG-13 “Citizenfour” In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four.” In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. Poitras is a masterful storyteller: she compresses the many days of questioning, waiting, confirming, watching the world’s reaction and agonizing over the next move, into both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

On Sunday many local movie houses will be showing a festive double feature, the classic 1938 “A Christmas Carol” with Cooke Communications Film Review Reginald Owen and 1945 “Christmas in SHIRREL RHOADES Connecticut” with Barbara Stanwyck. This is a one-day-only event. Sure, we’ve seen these movies a REVIEWED BY thousand times: The story of Ebenezer SHIRREL RHOADES Scrooge, a curmudgeon who awakens to the true spirit of Christmas after being hy would you go to the movie visited by three ghosts. And a whimsical theater to see a couple of old tale of a magazine writer with a popublack-and-white films that you usually catch on T.V. during the lar column about housekeeping on her Connecticut farm, which turns out to be holidays? Well, for one thing, there’s the experience of seeing a movie up there on pure fiction when her publisher shows up the big screen, the way it was intended to for Christmas dinner. Thee are two of my favorite put-you-inbe seen. Maybe there is something to that “Go Big or Go Home” trailer you’ve seeing the-holiday-mood movies. AT THE MOVIES W Don’t feel disloyal to Turner Classic Movies by going to see them at the theater. TCM and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are the ones presenting this special Fathom Event, hosted up there on the screen by TCM’s own Ben Mankiewicz. While “A Christmas Carol” is more of a morality play based on the Charles Dickens short story, “Christmas in Connecticut” is a screwball comedy with some of your favorite old-time character actors — Sydney Green Street, Reginald Gardner, and S.Z. Sakall. You’ll recognize their faces. It’s like spending Christmas with distant family members you see but once a year. [email protected] Documentary camptures Edward Snowden as ‘Citizenfour’ made two films about government intrusion – “My Country, My Country” (2006) and “The o doubt the NSA knew Oath” (2010).

She’d already REVIEWED BY SHIRREL RHOADES N Throat, who turned out to be Edward Snowden. “Once my camera came out in Hong Kong, everyone knew that was going to happen. And nobody asked me to stop. This was a pretty extraordinary set of circumstances. I think he didn’t know day-to-day what would happen to him, and how he would get through this time. So it was kind of an all-in moment. He’d taken so many risks that the camera just became another part of it.” Greenwald and MacAskill quizzed Snowden as he sat there in his room at the Mira Hotel in Hong Kong. Camera rolling, he told his story. “He’s been totally consistent in that he feels these things should not be secret,” Poitras says. “If the government is going to do this, then the public has a right to know.” With Snowden supplying them with classified documents, Glenn Greenwald broke the story in The Guardian in June 2013. Thanks to some skillful editing and the backing of filmmaker Steven Soderbergh (“Erin Brockovich,” “The Informant!”), Laura Poitras went on to produce “Citizenfour,” the tell-all that’s currently playing at the Tropic Cinema. So where does Ed Snowden come out in this film? As pretty much human. “Yes, this is a film about NSA and surveillance,” nods Laura Poitras. “But it’s also a film about humans — about people who take great personal risks. How do they do that, and what are the consequences?” [email protected] PARADISE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 ◆ 13 FILM IN PARADISE ‘Penguins of Madagascar’ proves to be certifiably cute animated adventure BY SHIRREL RHOADES verybody loves penguins. Blame Morgan Freeman. His narration of that “March of the Penguins” documentary started the craze back in 2005. Shortly thereafter we had “Farce of the Penguins” (2006), a mockumentary with Samuel L. Jackson. Then Jim Carrey gave us “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” (2011), the story of a stuffy businessman who inherits six penguins. That was followed by “Adventures of the Penguin King” (2012), an animated mating comedy voiced by Tim Allen. Of course, as you might have expected, DreamWorks had to get E in on the act with its “Madagascar” franchise, three (so far) animated movies about funny animals. So it spun off a film short titled “The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper” (2005). Then came a TV series mated offering is still playing at the Regal Cinema 6. It’s kind of a spy thriller starring Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, the four penguins last seen in “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.” This tuxedoed quartet are voiced by Tom McGarth, Chris Miller, Conrad Vernon, and Christopher Knights. They are joined by the voices of John Malkovich, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Jeong, Peter Stormare, and Annet called “The Penguins of Madagascar” (2008). As well Mahendru. Here the penguins get as a video “The Penguins of kidnapped and whisked Madagascar — Operation: away to a submarine base Get Ducky” (2010). controlled by an octopus And now we have a who resents penguins getfeature-length movie verting all the attention at sion, “The Penguins of Madagascar.” This 3D ani- zoos around the world. Dr. Octavius Brine, as he calls himself, has developed a serum he plans to use on penguins, turning them into horrible monsters rather than cute, cuddly birds. Fortunately, an undercover inter-species task force comes to their rescue. From there, it’s chase to stop the octopus and his squid henchmen from kidnapping penguins from zoos and transforming them with his Medusa Serum. Don’t worry. If you stay through the credits you’ll see that penguins of the world remain cute and cuddly. Turns out, the film’s underlying moral has to do with Private (Christopher Knights) discovering his true abilities beyond just being cute. Not that cute doesn’t help. Will you like “The Penguins of Madagascar?” Yes, because this film is very cute. [email protected] Top 10 clean movie insults There are plenty of great movie insults — rude remarks, nasty slurs, obscene slanders — but most of them you can’t quote in polite company. Take that wonderful disparagement from “A Fish Called Wanda,” the one that begins “You pompous, stuck-up, snot-nosed, English, giant, twerp ….” Yes, it gets more profane from there. Others, like the insult in “Bridesmaid,” seem much too tame: “You look like an old mop.” So we had to dig deep in our pile of movies to come up with this Top Ten list of “clean” insults: 10.) “Full Metal Jacket” (1987) — “You’re so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece!” 9.) “Toy Story” (1995) — “You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.” 8.) “The Breakfast Club” (1985) — “Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?” 7.) “Witches of Eastwick” (1987) — “I think – no, I’m positive – that you are the most unattractive man I have ever met in my entire life. You know, in the short time we’ve been together, you have demonstrated every loathsome characteristic of the male personality and even discovered a few new ones. You are physically repulsive, intellectually retarded, you’re morally reprehensible, vulgar, insensitive, selfish, stupid, you have no taste, a lousy sense of humor and you smell. You’re not even interesting enough to make me sick.” 6.) “Casablanca” (1942) — “You despise me, don’t you?” “If I gave you any thought, I probably would.” 5.) “The Women” (1939) — “There’s a name for you ladies, but it isn’t used in high society … outside of a kennel.” 4.) “The Princess Bride” (1987) — “I’ll explain and I’ll use small words so that you’ll be sure to understand, you warthog faced buf- foon.” 3.) “The Wizard Of Oz” (1939) — “You clinking, clanking, clattering collection of caliginous junk!” 2.) “Three Amigos!” (1986) — “You dirteating piece of slime, you scum-sucking pig, you son of a motherless goat!” 1.) “Monty Python And The Holy Grail” (1975) — “I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!” Did we leave out any of your favorite movie insults? Clean ones, that is. Or do you fear our reaction if you suggest one, like that aspersion from “Billy Madison?” “What you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.” [email protected] 398154 14 ◆ PARADISE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 Key West Art Center celebrates the season he Key West Art Center will host its annual “Celebrate the Season” opening show and reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday.
