Broadway Reviewed by Rdx hd

Growing up in New England, I got my first dose of live theater watching
the CBS variety series “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Sunday nights. My parents also
had recordings of shows like KISS ME, KATE and OKLAHOMA! It took me until
1975 to see my first live Broadway show, but I recall it vividly: the Hal
Prince-directed in-the-round revival of CANDIDE. After that I was hooked and I
would head to the local library to borrow whatever recordings they had. Once I
was earning money of my own, I began to collect original cast albums. So I can
easily understand filmmaker Rick McKay’s rabid interest in the Broadway shows
of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. By the 1980s, when McKay arrived in New York,
Broadway had begun to undergo the changes that have left it much poorer.
Production costs soared, shows became events, and the invasion of the large-scale
British musicals forever altered the face of the American theater.

So after a career of performing in nightclubs, McKay hit on the idea to try
to interview as many of the remaining stars from the 40s, 50s and 60s as he could.
The result is the terrific documentary BROADWAY, THE GOLDEN AGE BY THE
LEGENDS WHO LIVED IT. McKay had some difficulties landing some of the
interviewees which may account for some of the omissions (people like Joan Roberts
who was the original Laurie in OKLAHOMA!), but those who did agree offer a wide
range of interesting tidbits.

Theater is ephemeral; it is performed and then relegated to the memories of
those who were performing and those who were in the audience. True, now we
have records of many shows thanks to the archive at the New York Public Library
for Performing Arts, but before the 1970s, there were few recordings made.
Occasionally, a production might be recreated for television. So the rare archival
footage that McKay has uncovered (much thanks to the intrepid associate producer
Jane Klain) is worthy. There’s footage of a teenage Ann Miller tap dancing in the 1939
production GEORGE WHITE’S SCANDALS and the opening scenes of BUS STOP
featuring Kim Stanley, Elaine Stritch and Albert Salmi. McKay (thanks to Ms. Klain)
also located a 1938 screen test for Laurette Taylor, which is the only extant footage
of the actress speaking. Watching it is amazing and it is frustrating to hear that producer
David O. Selznick and his minions were unimpressed by Taylor, feeling as if she was
some little old lady who wandered off the streets. In fact, Taylor had acted in silents
and was an acclaimed stage star, noted for the chestnut PEG O’ MY HEART. In 1945,
she delivered one of her most memorable performances creating the role of Amanda
Wingfield in Tennessee Williams’ THE GLASS MENAGERIE. Like many in the theater
who don’t bother to learn the history, McKay did not know who Taylor was, but
many of his interview subjects related how impressed and moved they were by her
performance.

 

The film is a valentine to a lost era, when productions on Broadway didn’t cost
several million dollars, the cost of tickets was on par with movie admissions, and one
could live rather cheaply in New York City. While there are flaws in the piece, McKay
has managed to elicit terrific stories from the likes of Barbara Cook, Elaine Stritch, Carol
Channing, Gretchen Wyler, Uta Hagen, Gwen Verdon, Ann Miller, Patricia Morison,
Angela Lansbury, Jerry Orbach, Patricia Neal, Maureen Stapleton, Beatrice Arthur,
Carol Burnett and Elizabeth Ashley, among many, many others.

BROADWAY, THE GOLDEN AGE serves as a document that captures some
of the magic that has been lost as Broadway has become more corporate and less risky.
It’s a sad reminder of a time when plays and musicals flourished. McKay has reportedly
enough interviews for a sequel, featuring a current crop of stars, but when weighed against
those who went before, they simply can’t measure up.

Commercial refrigeration guide

Commercial refrigeration guide has more than 25 years of experience maintaining and repairing commercial and industrial refrigeration systems and units. Below is a story illustrating our approach to a customers’ dilemmas, and how we address unique refrigeration needs.

Many years ago, we received a call from a local pharmaceutical company to quote the installation of a Sushi display case in their employee cafeteria. Sushi contains raw fish amongst other food stuffs and the final product must be maintained at 30°F or lower.

There was a single deck display case currently installed where the new Sushi case was to go. It was designed to operate at 35°F with multiple defrosts throughout the day. This configuration wouldn’t work for displaying sushi.

Unfortunately, there weren’t any manufacturers that had a case to fit this existing footprint either. We offered to engineer the existing case refrigeration system to maintain the required Sushi product display temperature. The freeze point of fish is typically 28°F. The air screen temperature would need to be about 25-26°F.

We replaced the 3 fan assemblies (16 watt motors w/ 5 blade fans) with larger EBM Pabst Fans featuring 3500 RPM motors and 8 blade fans. This increased the air flow and helped maintain the air screen. Next, we replaced the remote compressor with a larger, low temperature compressor and corresponding TXV using R-507 refrigerant. The water-cooled condenser was acid-cleaned and deemed to have adequate capacity for this system.

There was an HVAC supply air grille located above the case. We redirected this airstream so it would not interfere with the case air screen. A Honeywell electronic thermostat was installed to control the temperature and off-cycle defrost. The sensor was a NEMA4X installed in the return air of the case.

The basic operation of the modified case was to start-up the refrigeration at 5:00 am each morning of use. This would ensure the case was ready to load with product by 7:00 am. The local thermostat was locked in to maintain 70°F during these hours.

The case continued to operate in refrigeration mode until 3 PM each day. It would then cycle off and the related ice would melt off the evaporator coil. The fans operated continuously. The chefs knew the timeline of operation and made sure the case was unloaded each day by 3 PM.

This modified case has been inspected by the local health department for many years without 1 write-up. It continues to provide a useful point of sale display for the cafeteria.

Good engineering and a thorough project work scope by Commercial refrigeration guide provided many additional years of use and profitability for this refrigerated display case. Our ability to look at the scope of the project and generate alternative solutions saved our client the trouble of finding and fitting a new unit into their space.

Keep Your Hardwood Floors Beautiful with Wax

Hardwood floors are an investment. Keeping them beautiful requires a bit of maintenance on your part, including regular waxing. With the right materials and techniques, you can keep your hardwood floors looking like new for years to come.

 

Wax Basics

Walk up and down the cleaning aisle of your local big box or home improvement store, and you will see many choices when it comes to your hardwood floors. Wax is the best choice when it comes to sealing and protecting your wood. There are two types of wax for unvarnished hardwood floors; which you choose depends solely on your personal preference. If your floors have already been varnished or sealed, choose a liquid polish instead of a wax.

Solid Paste

Solid paste wax is often found in a can or plastic tub, much like the wax you apply to your vehicle. This type of wax is an excellent choice for unvarnished hardwood floors and is best applied by hand.

Grab an old T-shirt or other lint-free cloth. Run the cloth under your faucet and wring it so that it feels almost dry to the touch. Dip a corner of the cloth into the wax and apply it lightly over your floor. Move your cloth in small circles, applying a thin, even coating. Let the wax dry to a cloudy finish, and buff your floor with a clean towel.

Liquid Wax

If you would prefer to use a sponge mop instead of getting on your hands and knees, liquid wax is the right choice. In most cases, liquid wax can be squirted directly onto an unvarnished hardwood floor and spread into an even layer with a dampened sponge mop. Alternatively, you can squeeze a small amount of liquid wax onto your mop’s head and then spread it on the floor.

Apply the wax in a thin layer, covering the entire floor. Allow the wax to dry to a hazy finish. Cover the head of your sponge mop with a dry, lint-free towel, and “mop” the floor to a shine. For best results, remove the towel from the mop, fold it or adjust it so that you are working with a clean section, and re-attach it to the mop’s head. Continue buffing in this manner until the entire floor shines.

Polishes

Unlike wax, polish is applied to sealed floors to help maintain a shine. Pour a bit of polish onto both your floor and onto a lint-free cloth or sponge mop. Spread the polish over your floor in a thin, even layer and allow it to dry. Buff the floor with a clean, dry, lint-free towel. The key to using polish properly is applying several thin coats, particularly to high-traffic areas. Three coats are typically sufficient for most floors.

It does not make sense to invest your money in hardwood floors if you do not plan on maintaining them. Floors need to be waxed once or twice yearly, on average. When your floor refused to hold a shine after you clean it, it is time to wax or polish your flooring charlotte nc.
