New Vendors WelcomeCALL 561-670-7473 www.wpbantiqueand” CONTRACT BRIDGEDesperate Circumstances BY STEVE BECKERAssume you re declarer in four spades and West leads the K-A and another diamond. East ruffs and returns a club, on which you hopefully play the queen, but West covers with the king, and you win with dummys ace. You lead a trump and finesse the queen, West discarding a club. Learning that East started with five trumps is enlightening, but while it solves the problem of avoiding a trump loser, it does not solve the problem of avoiding a club loser. Thus, if you next crossed to the queen of hearts to take a second trump finesse, then led a heart to the ace and took another trump finesse, youd pick up Easts king, but youd still have to lose a club and go down one. It cant be right to settle for such an o utcome without trying to do something about it. So you start looking for a line of play that offers you a chance for the contract. The solution is not all that hard to find. At trick six, you lead a low heart and finesse dummys ten! When the finesse succeeds, you are well on the way to victory. You take a second trump finesse, lead a heart to the queen and take a third trump finesse. The ace of trumps draws Easts king, after which you lead the king of hearts to the ace and deposit your club loser on dummys jack of diamonds. It is true that you must take what appears to be a foolish first-round heart finesse to make the contract, but you can easily justify that play by saying that desperate circumstances require desperate measures. Q FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF APRIL 11-17, 2013 B3


B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 11-17, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIm doing it during the Christmas period,Ž Mr. Hayes said of the play, which is set in the 12th century. Im very much into that period of time. Its certainly a classic play. Any play that deals with family issues and dysfunc-tions and is able to mine the humor of that is fun. And perhaps there are more practical concerns. Its a personal favorite play of my wifes, so its something weve talked about for a lot of years,Ž he said. His wife, Sue Ellen Beryl, has pull „ after all, she is the theaters managing direc-tor, and a founder of the company to boot. Her husband is no slouch, either.I think I can do a real dynamite job of directing it,Ž Mr. Hayes said. Another thing at which he is dynamite, is selecting plays that challenge his audiences. Dramaworks currently is staging Eugene Ionescos Exit the King,Ž an absurdist masterpiece that has won crit-ical acclaim. Its my risk play of the year. I always put that in the middle of the season because its the height of the season,Ž Mr. Hayes said. If youre a subscriber you have to see it, and its my job as artistic director to provide a body of works that vary thematically and chal-lenge theatrical conventions over the decades.Ž His risk play for next year: Harold Pinters Old Times.Ž Pinter is kind of an offspring of that absurdist movement. Thats kind of a new experience for an audience,Ž he said. It is that riskier fare that put Dramaworks on the map. The audience helped define Palm Beach Dramaworks. Of course, that par-ticular kind of theater is my taste. We did Zoo Story and The American Dream, and people started to come forward and say finally someone is doing these heady intellectual pieces. We pushed the envelope and had a strong turning point,Ž he said. The companys 2008 production of Ionescos The ChairsŽ was one of those turning points. It was the first time a New York paper came to see a show in Florida,Ž Mr. Hayes said. And it wasnt just any New York newspaper; it was The Wall Street Journal. It also was the first time I got hate mail,Ž he said. Not that he received tons of hate mail.There is such a large majority of people who are excited that Im going to present them something they arent going to see elsewhere,Ž he said, adding, Thats a real testament to South Flor-ida audiences. Thats one of the things that shocked The Wall Street Journal. Theres a lot of heady, intellectual stuff going on here.Ž And the paper has returned each season. Dramaworks will round out next season with Horton Footes comedy Divid-ing the EstateŽ and Karoline Leachs psychological thriller, Tryst.Ž Both Pinter and Foote have died in recent years, but Ms. Leach is very much of the present, as is Edward Albee, several of whose plays have been pre-sented at Dramaworks. The current season offered a taste of Albee with A Delicate Balance.Ž Audi-ences seemed to appreciate it, and it did not hurt that Mr. Hayes scored a coup in casting Albee protge Maureen Ander-man. To talk about our local audiences, it is a testament to them that a three-act Edward Albee play was our highest grossing play at that time; then when we did A Raisin in the Sun, that topped that.Ž For Mr. Hayes, that proves one thing:Do not underestimate the American people; they have the ability to think and the ability to feel,Ž he said, para-phrasing film director George Stevens. You dont need to dumb it down.Ž Q Its hard to call them puppets because the yre lif e-size. It doesnt get in the way of the emotional response you get from the show. It enhances the overall feel of the play,Ž Mr. Bell said, adding, Theyre so lifelike you forget the fact theres three guys manipulating the puppet, its so realistic in its movements and the movement of its ears.Ž The season continues from the sublime to the silly with Sister ActŽ (March 4-9) and continues on with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, EvitaŽ (April 8-13). Next season wraps with Million Dollar QuartetŽ (April 29-May 4), based on the evening in which record produc-er Sam Phillips brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins into the studio. That rockabilly shows run is the result of years of planning, Mr. Bell said. To coordinate a season, Mr. Bell said he goes to New York each year to see what is available. Its important to bring in the best quality shows and thats the first point of my process and I try to make sure we have a nice variety, and I think weve done that this year and Im working on next year and the year after that,Ž he said. The current season has had its share of surprises. The Kravis team had thought Jersey BoysŽ would be the big seller of the sea-son, and it sold well. But the big surprise this season is the last show, Priscilla Queen of the Des-ert,Ž which runs April 23-28. Priscilla is selling incredibly well for us. Its going to be close to 90 per-cent sold. We have an incredible amount of groups buying,Ž Mr. Bell said, adding, We thought Jersey Boys and Billy Elliott would be the No. 1 group shows.Ž This marks the fifth season in which the Kravis has assembled its own Broad-way series. When we first started the series we were at about 4,000 subscribers. Now were around 6,200. We started from scratch,Ž Mr. Bell said. That is growth in an economic climate in which subscription series have lost ground. Part of that is the value associated with having a subscription. Subscription prices have dropped because we just want more subscribers here. Weve been able to reduce prices with the six-show series,Ž Mr. Bell said, pointing to ticket prices that start at $174 and rise to $492 for the full series. That compares to $175 to $505 last year. Single ticket prices are higher, so it evens out in terms of the overall end result, so the subscriber gets a much better deal,Ž he said. So much of the programming is contingent upon what shows are available at the same time the Kravis Centers Dreyfoos Hall is available. But booking agents are happy to work with the Kravis on scheduling, Mr. Bell said. Everyone is aware of the economic reality of coming to West Palm Beach and thats helping us more and more. Were doing better and better,Ž he said.

Under the guidance of industry profes sionals at Floridas largest awardwinning professional regional theater, the theater is inviting high school stu-dents to apply to be part of a free sum-mer mentorship program to produce William Shakespeares Hamlet.Ž The show will take place Aug. 24, and will be centrally staged in the roundŽ at Light-house ArtCenter in Tequesta. One of Shakespeares most famous tragedies, HamletŽ follows Prince Hamlet of Denmark as he struggles with the death of his father and a ghostly visit, then sets out on a quest for truth, justice and ultimately revenge. Hamlets journey reminds us all to thine own self be true.Ž Our students will be producing a dynamic, high-energy adaptation of one of the most powerful and important dra-mas in the English language, as adapt-ed by T. Scott Wooten, award-winning Florida playwright and director,Ž said Julie R owe, director of education for the theater, in a prepared statement. Known as the Youth Artists Chair, the project aligns high school students with individual theater staff members for one-on-one mentoring and guidance during the creation process of the show. Applicants for the project will be interviewed and chosen by a commit-tee. Winning students will then take on specific roles throughout the summer months that include producer, director, set designer, costume designer, lighting designer, sound designer, proper-ties designer, stage manager, assistant stage manager, marketing, press rela-tions, development, carpentry, run crew, wardrobe and electrics. The students will then lead three weeks of rehearsals before mounting the show on stage. This project is an integral part of our theaters community outreach and mis-sion statement, which is to entertain, educate and inspire our community,Ž said the theaters producing artistic director, Andrew Kato. We feel ener-gized and fortunate to have this oppor-tunity to mentor the next generation of theaters leaders, and we are excited to be showcasing a new adaptation of Hamlet by T. Scott Wooten.Ž The deadline to apply for the project is April 15, with interviews that will take place through April 19. Submission packets are available at Those chosen for the role of director and producer will also assist in cast-ing the shows young performers. With casting open for local students ages 13-18, open auditions for the show will be held April 27 during the theaters annual First Step to Stardom audition day at Jupiter Community Center (a day which also includes opportunities to audition for three other shows: Annie,Ž The King and IŽ and Through The Looking Glass.Ž) Students interested in auditioning for HamletŽ should check in by 4 p.m. and come prepared with one of Shakespeares sonnets; pre-registration is highly recommended. Note that the show contains adult subject matter.

Even with tools like CarMax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the information needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that.North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for North-east dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car dealers from New York to Georgia — deal-ers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent test-ing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, transporting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 1351 S. Killian Drive location in Lake Park. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a website.” A car buyer can log on to automax and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wit-tmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “ It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges con-sumers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250. “I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find afford-able cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inventory. He recommends all car buy-ers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. For information, call 632-9093 Q Not your typical car dealer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Bill McLaughlin started Automax in Lake Park. Advertorial This article appeared in Florida Weekly on 10/11/2012. ++ Is it worth $10? NoSometimes, for better or worse, certain images leave a mental footprint that can never be unseen. For non-horror movie fans who aren t used to this type of gruesomeness, heres what Evil DeadŽ has to offer: a girl cutting her own arm off, a razor blade through the tongue, a syringe to the eye, blood splat-tering every-where courtesy of a chainsaw massacre, and plenty more thats just too squirm-induc-ing to detail. Of course, if youre into this kind of thing youre probably giddy reading about the nastiness. A better horror movie, however, wouldve found a way to tran-scend the genre and have wider appeal. Its hard to see non-hor-ror fans enjoy-ing what they see here, as much of it is downright sick. Director and co-writer Fede Alvarez maintains the premise of the 1981 cult classic of the same name directed by Sam Raimi (Oz The Great and Power-fulŽ) and starring Bruce Campbell. In this one, however, Mr. Alvarez loses that films occasionally campy humor (rewrites from Diablo Cody (JunoŽ) dont salvage the weak script) and goes for straight-up horror instead, which lends intensity to the action but is let down by poor acting and storytelling during dialogue-driven scenes. Five people journey to a cabin in the woods so substance abuser Mia (Jane Levy) can detox. Among them is her brother David (Shiloh Fernandez), for whom Mia harbors a lot of resent-ment because he wasnt there for her when their mother died. This is under-standable. Rounding out the group are Davids girlfriend Natalie (Eliza-beth Blackmore), nurse Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and their nerdy friend Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci). Lets discuss Eric for a moment. Im not sure about you, but if I were in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere and found a book wrapped in barbed wire with the warning Leave This Book AloneŽ written on it, Id stay the heck away and leave without saying good-bye. But not Eric, because the script needs him to be that guy. You know, the one who sees demons and crazy rituals in a book and ignores the fact that it says Dont DrawŽ and Dont Say AloudŽ and pro-ceeds to do all of the above, there-by summoning a demon to the cabin and ruining everyones weekend. The demon possesses their bodies with an Exorcist-like voice and forces them to puke blood and do awful things to one another with nail guns and a machete. The violence is shocking to the point of laughter, but its the kind of laughter that comes from discomfort, not humor. Worse, there arent many scares here. Its mostly just one shocking gross-out after another, and the few scares we do get are cheap and predictable. Evil DeadŽ even has an ending we see coming, though to its credit it does finish on a high note. Unfortunately, its not high enough to make all the blood and gore before it worthwhile. Q LATEST FILMS‘Evil Dead’ f m w s a b L dan >> Bruce Campbell, the star of the original “The Evil Dead,” declined an offer to cameo in this movie. CAPSULESG.I. Joe Retaliation ++ (Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki) With most of the G.I. Joes wiped out, Roadblock (Mr. John-son) leads the few who remain against Cobra Commander and his minions. The story is layered and convoluted, but some nice action set pieces keep things entertaining. Rated PG-13.Spring Breakers +++ (James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens) Embracing adventure and the recklessness of youth, four young women are arrested while on spring break in Florida; theyre bailed out by a small-time rapper/gangster named Alien (Mr. Franco). No doubt its crass and vulgar, but it also offers a stylish, unique spin on the typical coming-of-age story. Rated R.The Croods +++ (Voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds) With the earth shifting, a loner (Mr. Reynolds) helps a cave-dwelling family explore new, dangerous territory. Its a cookie-c utter pr edictable story, but the animation looks good and it has some laughs. This is wholesome fun for the family. Rated PG.The Incredible Burt Wonderstone +++ (Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi) Veteran Vegas magician Burt Wonderstone (Mr. Carell) splits with his partner (Mr. Buscemi) and tries to make it on his own after a new street magician (Mr. Carrey) becomes the new fad. Some of Carreys gags are ridicu-lously extreme, and the story is cookie cutter, but its also funny and charming. Rated PG-13. Q

Mr. McPhillamy, current-ly starring as King Berenger in Palm Beach Dramawor ks production of Exit the King,Ž has authored An Actor Walks into China,Ž his memoir of directing western theater in China and Chinese theater in London. He will read excerpts from the book at 2:30 p.m. April 18 at Drama-works Ann & Don Brown Theatre. Mr. McPhillamy went to China by way of Little Rock, Ark., where he had been performing as Dr. Wat-son in a production of Sherlock Holmes.Ž The Sherlock of the production was headed to China to play King Lear and invited Mr. McPhillamy to come along and co-star as Kent. I became deeply fascinated with the place,Ž he said. The next Mr. Phillamy knew, he was headed back to Beijing to direct and all-female production of Julius Caesar.Ž There has been a rush to cultureŽ in China as its economy and way of thinking evo lve, Mr. Mc Phillamy said. And along with that rush comes confusion. Things get confusing in business in a country where people are reluc-tant to say no,Ž he said. He expects at least some of that confusion to dissipate as China con-tinues to build its performing arts scene. Theres a real burgeoning scene there,Ž he said. One has only to look at Japan and South Korea to see the popularity of musicals in Asia „ the Daegu Inter-national Musical Festival, for one, draws talent and fans from around the globe; three years ago, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre helped send a pro-duction of its musical AcademyŽ to South Korea. I think what we will see is a huge musical theater culture there,Ž Mr. McPhillamy said. Thats not the case in China yet, but they are building theaters at a great rates.

A1A, Jupiter; 744-1300 or The Price: $10.99 The Details: We wanted not to like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. After all, it is a chain, and the location has been home to such spots as Harpoon Louie s and The Crab House. And the Forrest GumpŽ-inspired place, which also has a gift shop, can be a little too gimmicky at times. Fortunately, the food seems to be the focus.This Shrimp Po Boy brought a dozen perfectly fried medium shrimp on a French loaf that was so stuffed, it required a knife and fork. The shrimp were tender and not at all greasy. Other dishes, including the Shrimp New Orleans and the Im Stuffed!Ž Shrimp, also delivered. All that and a great view of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.Thats the perfect way to end an evening. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE As you walk into Mr. Gyros Greek and Mediterranean Grill, experiencing a taste of Greece is what the owner, John Kaplanidis, aims for. Mr. Kaplanidis was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, and raised in Boston. With his father also being a restauranteur, he says he was always surrounded by food and the culinary industry. The best way to learn the business is hands on,Ž he says, referring to the many restaurants of which he has been a part. With his father, Mr. Kaplanidis has had six restaurants within the Boston area. The restau-rants extend from Greek fare, to pizzerias, delicatessens and diners. After moving to South Florida with his wife, Yianna, and two kids in 2004, the couple decided to go back to their roots with Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. In 2009, Mr. Gyros, home of the authentic Gyro opened. With a focus on fresh, home-made, and authentic Mediterranean fare, the menu offers anything from chicken gyros, to moussaka, spanakopita, and falafel. Mr. Kaplanidis says that the authenticity of Mr. Gyros is not only derived from fam-ily recipes, but also from the olive oil that is imported from Greece. While Mr. Kapalanidis works on the culinary side of the business, Yianna Kapalani-dis focuses on the real estate side. In December 2012, Mr. Gyros opened in Stuart. With an aspiration to open more locations within the next two years, the next Mr. Gyros will be in Jupiter. There arent many restaurants that do what we do,Ž he says. Most Greek restau-rants are white table cloth with waiters and waitresses „ we have a completely different concept.Ž Name: John Kaplanidis Age: 47 Original Hometown: Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, and raised in Boston Restaurant: Mr. Gyros Greek and Mediterranean Grill, 10901 N. Military Trail in the Garden Square Shops, Palm Beach Gardens Mission: Our mission here is to serve fresh, homemade food with the best ingredi-ents in a casual setting with fast service.Ž Cuisine: Mediterranean fare Training: Mr. Kaplanidis took after his father by being in the restaurant business. Together, they worked at multiple delicates-sens, diners and pizzerias in the Boston area. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear no-slip shoes from Gander Mountain. Theyre almost like a sneaker and very comfortable.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Well, other than gyros, I think my other guilty pleasure would be seafood. Seafood is something that I really gravitate towards „ clams, oysters, and being from Boston, I love lobster.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? The best advice I could give is to be prepared for long hours. You have to take advice from others in the industry, put in the hours and work hard and eventually you can get to the point where you are capable of owning your own place.Ž Q In the kitchen with...John Kaplanidis, Mr. Gyros Greek and Mediterranean Grill BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Sample food from some of the areas top restaurants, and taste wine from vineyards around the world on April 25 at the fifth Legacy Place Food & Wine Festival, an evening that offers samplings from South Floridas top restaurants; wine tastings from vineyards around the world; live music and entertainment.
