Salon Matisse Welcomes Jessica Tama!

Bloomfield Jewish Community Center
for dinner. He saw some fliers and
sought more information.
"Wearing of the Greens has been
done in California and Florida,"
Rothman says. "Good plays have a lot
of conflict and confrontation, and this
one has all that.
"I really delve into the nature of the
characters, and I write funny charac-
ters and funny attitudes. I don't con-
sider myself a joke writer. I consider
myself a storyteller:"
Enjoying the humor of the play are
three Jewish cast members — Andrea
Briggs (daughter Liz Green) of Beverly
Hills, Joel Fabian (father Jack Green)
of Oak Park and Stephen Sussman
(son Mel Green) of Bloomfield
Township.
"This play has a lot of things people
can relate to in their own lives," says
Briggs, 47, who has been active in
community theater for three years. "It
has the kind of situations that people
don't often talk about."
Fabian, 60, an accountant partici-
pating in community theater for 35
years, appreciates the opportunity to
work with a TV and stage professional.
"This part is the third Jewish char-
acter I've played since joining this
group," says Sussman, 57, an architect

who became active with the troupe
after the commitment of his wife,
Kathy, and daughters Rachel and
Hillary. The family also is active with
Temple Israel.
Rothman's audiences will have
plentiful opportunities to hear his
Hollywood stories, which have become
the subject of another play he hopes to
produce locally. Each performance will
be followed with question-and-answer
sessions.
"I was 23 when I started working on
The Odd Couple,"says Rothman, who
enjoys Detroit baseball and casinos as
well as cryptic crossword puzzles. "In
those days, just my writing partner
and I were about the only ones in that
age group. Now, it seems everybody
doing that job is about 23."

The Wearing of the Greens will
be performed 7:30 p.m. Fridays-
Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays,
July 13-22, at the Starlight
Theater inside the Summit
Place Mall, 315 N. Telegraph, in
Waterford. $10-$14. Call (248)
661-0496 or (310) 386-0333 or
go to www.starlighttheater.net .

78. Born Belle

Historical Society gave Sills its
Emma Lazarus
Statue of Liberty
award for "a life-

Hy Zaret
Hy Zaret, uni-
versally described
as one of the last
of the great Tin Pan Alley lyricists,
died on July 2 age 99. He wrote
the lyrics for quite a few hit songs,
but the best known is "Unchained
Melody," which was turned into a
hit by several singers, including
the Righteous Brothers.
Twenty-five years after its origi-
nal release, "Unchained Melody"
became a hit again when it was
used in the 1990 film Ghost. The
music was by the late Jewish com-
poser Alex North.
