"Four stars

Clowes Memorial Hall, April 23

One Night. One Stage. One Reason. Hundreds of creative artists share with the community to raise funds to provide the essential services to prevent HIV/AIDS, to treat those who are stricken and to assist families and other caretakers of those who have the disease. The stage glittered with star power, yet special attention is due the two silent men off stage left. Charlie Maurer and Darren Chittick are grace in motion as Interpreters. They are everyone on stage—totally—providing through body language and hands that speak every nuance of sound. Bravo as well to the production personnel who make it all seem so easy and to the WFYI-Public TV crew who record the program for viewing at home and who created the video showing last year’s contributions at work. On stage, diversity rang loud. Interspersed throughout were readings from Kurt Vonnegut’s infamous WNET radio plays, “God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian.” Interviews with dead celebrities spanning centuries show how timeless and poignant Vonnegut can be and how talented arts administrators are to pull it off. — RK
