Carrey is plenty busy; 'Eyes
Wide Shut' nally sets date

AASO bops with Beethoven
in series of festival concerts

By Bryan Lark
Daily Arts Writer
In a role most actors wouldn't
touch with 39 and a half foot pole,
Jim Carrey is in final negotiations to
star as the mean one, Mr. Grinch, in
a live-action update of the Dr. Seuss
classic, "How the Grinch Stole
Christmas."
According to E! Entertainment
Television, Carrey would terrorize
the as-yet-uncast denizens of
Whoville at multiplexes everywhere
the 1999 holiday season.
arrey, whose last film "Tie
Truman Show" has generated alrrost
$150 million at the box officeand
plenty of Oscar buzz, is now sloot-
ing Milos Forman's biopic of kndy
Kaufman called "Man or the Noon"
and is slated to star in aiother
update of an arguable classe, the
Don Knotts opus, "The Incredible
Mr. Limpet," in which Carre would
*tch his newly showcases acting
muscles to play a man why thinks
he's a fish.
No word yet if, in preparation for
the mean, green "Grinch" Carrey
plans to put garlic in his saul.
Speaking of Grinches, tle Grinch
who stole the last two yeas of Tom
Cruise and Nicole Kidmat's lives,
Stanley Kubrick, has setled
with Warner Bros. on
release date for his long-
*ited psycho-sexual
thriller, "Eyes Wide
Shut."
After much specula-
tion about a spring
release date, Warner
Bros. announced last -K
week that "Eyes" would
open on July 16, 1999, in
the heat of the summer

For the Daily
There is something to be said
for spending an evening hearing
good classical music. First you
get a date, or a friend, or your
mom. You get dressed up, more
or less depending on if you're
going with your date, your friend,
or your mom.
You go out to eat at a good
restaurant. Maybe you drink t lit-
tle wine.
With a full
belly, you go
FA~nnnto the concert
Ann Arbor hall, sit back
in the dark,
Symphony surrounded
Orchestra by the
Michigan Theater rhythms of
violins, cel-
tnoat . los, clarinets,
horns and the
double bass.
O n
Saturday, the
Ann Arbor
Symphony
Orchestra begins its new season
with the first of two Beethoven
concerts, featuring some of the
composer's most beautiful pieces
of music.
Most every week this term you
can find a good classical music
concert to attend, from the free
University Symphony Orchestra
concerts to shows like the not-so-

free-but-still-cheap San
Francisco Symphony Orchestra.
As students in Ann Arbor,
we're privileged to welcome
diverse orchestras from around
the world to our community. This
weekend we have the opportunity
to enjoy some classical music
from the locals.
On the program for tomorrow
are three selections that stand out
as gentler works from a turbulent
period of Beethoven's life.
Maestro Samuel Wong will be
conducting the orchestra with
well-known pianist and Music
professor Anton Nel as the guest
soloist.
The concert will begin with
"Overture to The Creatures of
Prometheus." This work comes
from the only ballet Beethoven
wrote.
It is a compact piece that also
manages to emit the enthusiasm
suggested by the subjects of the
ballet itself: gods, heroes, and
the destiny of man.
Second on the program is the
"Piano Concerto No. 4," written
as a virtuoso showpiece. The first
movement of the concerto is one
of the most serene movements
Beethoven wrote during this
time.
Not much is known about the
origins of the "Fourth
Symphony," which is the final
piece to be performed on

Saturday. Beethoven only wrote a
short note stating, "Receipt for
500 fl. which I received from
Count Oppersdorf for a sympho-
ny I have written for him."
All the sketches and notes for
this work are lost. What has not
been lost is its pure beauty.
Subtle humor can also be found,
yes humor, with the fading and
intensifying of sound which
Beethoven incorporates. This is a
lovely symphony that should be
especially fun to hear live.
The second of the two concerts
will be on October 3, also at 8
p.m., with one of Beethoven's
"Contradances" opening the con-
cert, the "Leonore Overture No.
3," "Romance No. 2 in F" with
UM graduate Kristen Yon as vio-
lin soloist and "Symphony No. 7.
Both concerts are preceeded by
a free lecture at 7 p.m. at the the-
ater. Maestro Wong will be the
lecturer tomorrow, with
October's lecturer to be
announced later.
So call up your date, your
friend or your mom and get your
tickets. If you buy them at the
door they're half-price with stu-
dent I.D.
If you've never been at a per-
formance of live classical music,
Beethoven and the Ann Arbor
Symphony Orchestra will defi-
nitely give you a fine introduc-
tion.

Even beforeits release date

But the juiciest
story from the
closed set of
"Shut" was
about the wide-
ly rumored
trailer for the
film Kubrick

much pressure

Bros.
The 30-sec-
ond trailer is,
according to
Entertainment
iesy of Tis Picues Weekly, a still
yes Widehut." shot of Nicole

Kidman's breasts with Kidman's
name above one nipple and Cruise's
name above the other and "Eyes
Wide Shut" emblazened underneath.
No word yet on if that trailer will
park itself in a theater near you,
though common sense and the cen-
sor-happy theater owners in Utah
suggest otherwise.
Newly family-oriented funnyman
Eddie Murphy will head to another
world, literally for his next project.
Entertainment Tonight reported
that "Pluto Nash" is a sci-fi-action-
comedy, a combination that has
rarely worked, in which Murphy
would star as some sort of wise-
cracking hero in a wacky, spacey
get-up.
Murphy already has one film in
the can, October's home shopping
comedy "Holy Man," and is busy
shooting "Bowfinger's Big Thing," a
farce written by and starring Steve
Martin as a down-on-his-luck pro-
ducer trying to get vapid action star
Murphy to star in his next big pro-
ject.
Also featuring Heather Graham,
"Bowfinger's" big release is sched-
uled for next summer.
No word yet on if Murphy can still
be funny in a film that doesn't fea-
ture talking animals and/or flatu-
lence.
