Transcript 16 MONTROSE VOICE/OCTOBER 17. 1986 Montrose Live Happy Surprises to be Found in the 'Forest' James Jeter portrays family patriarch Marcus Hubbard and Bonnie Black plays his manipulative daughter Regina in the Alley Theatre's Large Stage production of "Another Part of the Forest" By Bill O'Rourke Montrose Voice Another Part of the Forest, at the Alley, is delightful! Faced with a play about a bickering Southern family written by The Children's Hour author, Lillian Hellman, I'd expected heavy flogging through a musty old morass of regret and oppression. Surprise! There is an oppressive patriarch, but everyone else is up to a good fight. Everyone looks forward with hope. And, all except one person, end up getting their own way, or something even better. Even he seems to leave the play with plots for a rosier future. It is a terribly witty play. Some horrible events that could be tear-jerking in another play bring laughter with them. All of that mirth without the actors ever obviously playing for the laughs, that is quality humor! Director Pat Brown has orchestrated an odd sort of realism here. At second glance, one notices that the doors in Charles S. Kading's set work with such forced perspective that their tops slope prodigiously. One of the tactics that Bonnie Black's Regina uses is that forced belle cuteness. One wouldn't be surprised if she said, "Fiddle dee dee." Yet everything and everyone is so naturally themselves. The Alley wisely showcases its own company. Rosemary Prinz is a guest, but she fits so perfectly into the ensemble that one forgets. James Jeter is back, magnificently. Brandon Smith, Jeff Bennett and Cynthia Rider are all in top form. The Alley will be touring thi show. I'm warning my mother in Colorado Springs not to miss it. You shouldn't, either. d The Art Scene We expect Texas landscapes to be realism or perhaps the Indian influence. James Busby's lush impressionistic romanticism surprises us. Using bold daubs of muted colors, rather like Seurat's points, and swirling skies of baby blanket hues, this style seems best suited to fall forests at sunset. Most of his pictures are just that, but an impressive one was of a dirt road. His eye, like Renior's, finds at least four colors in the torn up track and his sure grasp of textures contrasts with a smooth, well-cared for section of the lane. These are on display at DuBose- Rein Galleries, 1700 Bissonnet. You can see Seurat's own works as part of two complementing exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts. In one suite is French clothing from 1700-1900. These are gorgeously flattering garments with their brocade, embroidery, gold lace, etc. In another suite hang portraits ofthe fascinating people who wore those clothes. There are two ofthe most famous lovers of all time, for example. Madame Pompadour, mistress of the king, primps in front of her mirror, putting on a "little" too much rouge. She looks surprisingly perky. Paul Verlaine, on the other hand, comes off looking almost like a Puritan. He and his lover, Arthur Rimbaud (born Oct. 20), wrote joyously and bluntly erotic poetry. The portraits start with obviously posed people surrounded by symbolic detail. Then comes a wonderful period when the subjects are flatteringly caught "on the wing" surrounded by objects from their own everyday lives. From there, it splits into two camps— those who focus solely on the person, washing out the background and those who concentrate on the way the background reveals the sitters personalities and minimalize the sitter himself. There is even one painting of an artist's brother's back, sitting with his hat on! □ Notes The Houston Center for Photography is turning five!...
