hen the curtain goes up
on the Broadway-based
show written to cele-
brate the 25th anniver-
sary of JARC (Jewish Association
for Residential Care), the audi-
ence will be treated to the talents
of Broadway entertainers who
feel at home in Detroit.
Joel Grey, who will sing and
dance as he hosts "25 Years of the
Magic of Broadway," performed
in the Motor City during those
years and introduced George MI
here before it went to New York.
Maurice Levine, who wrote the
JARC script and will be directing
a stellar musical troupe he per-
sonally selected,
produced indus-
trial theater in
Michigan during
a phase of his ca-
reer that was
quite different
from his work as
a musical theater
and symphony
conductor.
The cast and
crew, now in re-
hearsal, will light
up the Fox The-
atre stage at 8
p.m. Tuesday,
Nov. 1.
"The title indi-
cates pretty
much what we're going to be do-
ing," said Mr. Levine, artistic di-
rector of the "Lyrics and Lyricists"
series that plays to sellout crowds
in New York.
"Everything on the Detroit pro-
gram is involved with a musical
show that has played Broadway
since 1969. That includes re-
vivals, but I want to put the em-
phasis on those shows that are
not revivals. I recently drew up a
12-page document indicating
which shows did play in the years
JARC was doing its work."
Just some of the productions
from which songs are likely to be
taken include A Chorus Line, Ap-
plause, Company, The Roth-
schilds , Annie, Pippin, Follies, On
the Twentieth Century and
Sweeney Todd.
"The main problem I have is
deciding what not to do," said Mr.
Levine, a musical theater enthu-
siast since his youth, still capti-
vated by the magic that takes
audiences through all kinds of
moods and to all kinds of places
with each show.
The writer-director, who has
conducted for hits such as Kurt
Weill's Lost in the Stars and the

Broadway To Mark
JARC Anniversary

Kern/Hammerstein revival of
Music in the Air, looked to the
stage to find performers for the
JARC event.
Appearing with Joel Grey will
be Jan Horvath, who was in
Phantom of the Opera; Victoria
Regan, who danced in 42nd
Street; and Tara Winston, who
had the leading role in Black and
Blue. Rounding out the cast will
be Anne Hampton Callaway,
Carol Woods and Brent Barett.
What distinguishes the pro-
ductions of the past 25 years from
those created earlier is a more
daring approach, according to Mr.
Levine, who is quick to add that
the main
theme of love
and romance
remains.
Similarly,
when JARC
opens the an-
niversary

Maurice Levine

program with a brief video docu-
menting its progress, the organi-
zation will demonstrate how it
has become more innovative
while remaining steadfast in its
commitment to caring for the de-
velopmentally disabled.
"JARC supports 17 homes and
54 people able to live indepen-
dently," said executive director
Joyce Keller. "There are 220 peo-
ple on our waiting list."
Started by a group of parents
who met while taking their chil-
dren to social programs at the
Jewish Community Center,
JARC incorporated in 1969 and
opened its first home in 1972.
The organization began re-
ceiving some public funding
through the Michigan Depart-
ment of Mental Health in 1980
and now is moving into a time
when public funds are being fun-
neled through county offices.

A critical experience came in
1982, when its seventh home, lo-
cated in Pleasant Ridge, was
torched. During the weeks JARC
stood its ground and rebuilt the
home, the organization provided
24-hour guard service to prevent
further problems.
As JARC continued getting
more clients, it launched a series
of fund-raising concerts in 1981,
gaining more community inter-
est and looking for new ways to
provide more independent living
opportunities, now strongly ad-
vocated by county administrators
planning for the future.
Nancy Grosfeld, concert com-
mittee chairperson, became in-
terested in JARC while attending
a concert with a friend. A social
worker and nurse, her concern al-
ways had seemed to focus on the
developmentally disabled.
"We want to enhance our pro-
grams and the quality of life for
all the clients of
JARC," Ms.
Grosfeld said.
Maurice
Levine is devot-
ing the entire
month of Octo-
ber to prepare
the JARC
show. He will
bring his re-
hearsals to the
Fox a few days
prior to the per-
formance.
"I am very,
very familiar
with Detroit,"
said the writer-
director, who
soon will be getting ready for the
silver anniversary of the "Lyrics
and Lyricists" series. "I was the
music director of Broadway-type
shows put on every autumn for
15 years to explain new cars to
the salesmen.
"If anyone asked me where I
lived during the summer months
of those years, I would say I lived
on a plane somewhere between
New York and Detroit."
"The basic premise of the JARC
show — the past 25 years of the
songs of Broadway — is one of the
most brilliant show concepts in
many a year," Mr. Levine com-
mented. "To say I look forward to
this project with great enthusi-
asm is an understatement" D
