Scrumptious salads, marvelous main

Middle Eastern: Jerusalem Garden
Not only is it economical and away
from the hustle-and-bustle of the State
Street area, they wrap up their falafel
so it's easy to eat. This year we eat
shwarma in Ann Arbor, but next year,
we hope to eat it in Jerusalem. Or at

parts: Paul in "Company" ('91), Che
in "Evita" ('91), Joey in "Pal Joey"
('92), Peter in "The Heidi Chronicles"
('94). Surely we'll remember his wit,
intelligence, comedic timing and most
of all his sincerity.
Best New Performer: Heather Dilly
Stepping in halfway through the
show, Dilly made her debut as the
bitchy Dorothy Brock in "42nd
Street." She then went to play two
hilarious roles in "The Heidi
Chronicles," proving her versatility
and her freshness. Keep an eye on her.
Best Basement Arts:
An original play with a thoroughly
unoriginal script, "Remember Me"
was nonetheless a compelling story
of how AIDS afflicted a pair of lov-
ers and their friends and family.
The Most Uninhibited Award:
"Welcome Back, Kotter ... Let's
Dance" (Performance Network)
Rumor has it the cast stripped down
naked and smoked pot in the last
scene. Do we hear a revival?
Best (and Worst) National Tour:
"The Who's 'Tommy"' ("Grease")
"Tommy" rocked Detroit's Masonic
Temple for three glorious weeks, her-
alding the return of rock music to
Broadway; "Grease" slipped and slid
through the massive Fox Theatre with
two leads who couldn't sing (Ricky
Paull Goldin and Susan Wood) and
Rosie O'Donnell whose comic cracks
couldn't save this day-glow, ridicu-

eryone; he knew when to hold back
and when to soften, and when to push
it and raise the level. Neville-
Andrews saved an otherwise choppy,
poorly-written "Heidi" by cleverly
tinkering with the scene structure.
However, Neville-Andrews is not
without fault, as seen in his direction
of "Butterfingers Angel ..." If he
didn't know what to do with it, how
was the cast supposed to know?
Most Prolific Performer:
With supporting roles in "The Rogues
Trial," "Butterfingers Angel ..." and
"Major Barbara," and a lead in "The
Heidi Chronicles," Molnar proved he
had versatility and stamina. Does this
guy ever take a break?
Best Performance in a University
Elise Bryant and Danny Gurwin,
"The Heidi Chronicles"; Ronit
Mitzner, "Quilt"; John Halmi and
Brooke Ferris, "Quilt"
As for "The Heidi Chronicles," Elise
Bryant - what can we say? She was
a hoot! Danny Gurwin brought out the
comedy and the seriousness in the
role of Peter the gay pediatrician,
earning our sympathy androur respect.
In "Quilt," Ronit Mitzner was hilari-
ous and heart-warming as Karen, the
well-meaning klutz who is trying des-
perately to make a quilt panel for her
friend. John Halmi and Brooke Ferris
were an adorable uncle and little niece
(respectively), and their duet, "I Be-
lieve In You" was equally charming.

The Goddess Award: Erin Dilly
This award was created for Erin Dilly.
In her four years she has graced so
many productions, we falter in our
memory. Some highlights: Amy in
"Company" ('91), Rosalind in "As
You Like It" ('92), singing "In the Ab-
sence of Angels" in "Quilt" ('93), a
narration piece in the Collage Con-
cert ('94), Barbara in "Major Barbara"
('94), Rosabella in "The Most Happy
Fella" (April 14-17, 1994). A moment
of silence, if you please.
