As told by a traveling troupe of actors led by the cunning and charming Leading Player, Pippin is the story of a young prince, heir to the throne, who returns from university certain that he will find a fulfilling purpose in life. He dabbles in bloody battle, licentious and lusty entanglements, and savvy political maneuvers, only to discover that true happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but in the ordinary moments that happen every day. As part of their February Festival, Gainesville Theatre Alliance will present Pippin Feb 11-22 at Brenau University's Hosch Theatre.GTA alumnus and local Gainesville magician Jeff McClure is the magic consultant for the show. McClure graduated from the GTA program in 1992 and has been working full-time as a magician and entertainment provider for the Atlanta market. Because Pippin is full of magical tricks and circus acts, McClure was invited to show students how to create magic on stage. "It's been really cool working with the students and seeing them go from knowing nothing about magic to becoming brand new experts in the craft," he says. "Hopefully, I had just a little bit to do with that." One of the tricks used in the show is The Zig-Zag Lady, which McClure actually built in the GTA shop when he was a student. The illusion has traveled with him all over the United States and he is excited to share the trick with current GTA students and Pippin audiences.

On January 5, 2005, the New York Times published its obituary for Will Eisner, one of the most lauded figures in the world of comics and graphic novels, who had died three days earlier in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after quadruple bypass surgery. On January 6 the Times ran the following correction: "An obituary of the innovative comic-page illustrator Will Eisner yesterday included an imprecise comparison in some copies between his character The Spirit and others, including Batman. Unlike Superman and some other heroes of the comics, Batman relied on intelligence and skill, not supernatural powers."1 One can only imagine the torrent of e-mails from comics fans pointing out this crucial difference and clucking at the writer's obvious lack of knowledge about the recondite world of superhero comics. It is a difference, of course, that makes even more apt the comparison between Bob Kane's dour, night-stalking masked detective and the dapper, night-stalking masked detective who made Eisner famous in the early 1940s. Both characters were the creations of Jewish comics artists, friends in fact, who attended DeWitt Clinton High School together in the Bronx and grew up during the Depression. It was they and their peers, also primarily Jewish, primarily New Yorkers, who made the comic book form. They helped that form, as Michael Chabon writes in The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, "articulate a purpose for itself in the marketplace of ten-cent dreams: to [End Page 463] express the lust for power and the gaudy sartorial taste of a race of powerless people with no leave to dress themselves."2 041b061a72
