other) son time together."
The whole mishpachah will re-
unite in Detroit for Passover.
"I couldn't imagine a Passover
where we'd be split up. It's always
been a part of our house," says
Elaine Newman. "We plan to
have seders for two nights, with
several of the cast members join-
ing us. My husband's bringing the
Haggadahs and kippahs. It's a
very important part of our
lives." ❑

FUN FACTS

The Beast

hours.
* Fred Inkley needs three peo-
ple to help him into makeup,
prosthetics, hair and wardrobe.
* There are seven yards of hu-
man hair wefting in each of the
Beast's tails.
* It took 20 pounds of human
hair and 400 man hours to create
the first Beast.

Wigs

* There are over 160 wigs used
on stage each performance.
* On average, there are eight
wig changes for each ensemble
member per show.
* The 30-inch-length human
hair needed to build Belle's wig
was imported from India.

Pyrotechnics

* There are over 37 pyrotech-
nical and special-effects articles
used in the show, including the
Enchantress' fireball, the first
known throwable hand-held de-
vice of its kind.
* Lumiere uses approximate-
ly one ounce of liquid butane fuel
per arm per show, which equals
4 pounds of butane per month.
With the addition of 10 torches,
the show will use at least 6
pounds of fuel per month.

* There are more than 80 pros-
thetic pieces used weekly in the
show.

More On Menken
And King David

) Menken and Tim
A lan
Rice have completed the
first draft of the King
avid musical to cele-
brate the 3,000th anniversary of
the city of Jerusalem, which King
David proclaimed as Israel's cap-':
ital.
The musical, soon to undergo
a series of rewrites, enters pre-
production in May, looking to-
ward its September debut as a
full-scale arena concert. The set-
ting will be the 6,000-seat Sul-
tan's Pool arena situated just
outside Jerusalem's Old City.
Additional performances will
be scheduled throughout Israel
and in approximately 20 cities
worldwide. It then will be
restaged as a theatrical produc-
tion for Broadway.
"It's very much a story of a man
and a nation," Menken disclosed.
"It's not done in any way as a
whitewash or homage to the
greatness of King David. He cer-
tainly was a man of greatness as
well as many flaws. It really is the
story of the passing of power. The
religious aspect is not in the fore-
front at all."
Rice, who is not Jewish, is the
storyteller, while Menken brings
Semitic influence to the music.
"I was in Israel once with the
project, and it was fascinating
and thrilling," Menken said. "I got
to be a tourist only in that con-
text. There were video crews trail-
ing us so it was hardly a normal
tourist's experience.
"We did see a lot of interesting
sights and had a lot of interest-
ing meetings. It was a practical,
work-oriented trip and extreme-
ly memorable." ❑
