THE WHIPPING MAN
By Matthew Lopez
Directed by Martin Benson
Presented in Association with South Coast Repertory
Stage and television star Charlie Robinson (NBC's "Night Court") plays Simon in this Obie Award-winning drama The New York Times proclaimed "haunting" and "powerful." The production also stars Adam Haas Hunter and Jarrod M. Smith.
In the aftermath of the civil war, a confederate captain and his two former slaves are drawn back to the ruins of their once grand estate. On the eve of the passover seder, they are haunted by their scarred pasts, hit with the reality of their uncertain future, and ultimately drawn together by the strength of family.
Please be advised this production portrays a graphic lifesaving civil war era surgical procedure.
Running Time: 2 hours (including a 15-minute intermission).
Tickets are available online at PasadenaPlayhouse.org or by calling 626-356-7529

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
SOPAPILLA CHEESECAKE BARS
Simple, and simply delicious
2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350°F.
Unroll 1 can dough. Place in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Stretch to cover bottom of dish, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 1 cup of the sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Spread over dough in baking dish.
Unroll second can of dough. Carefully place on top of cream cheese layer. Pinch seams together.
Pour melted butter evenly over top. Mix remaining 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over butter.
Bake about 30 minutes or until center is set. Cool slightly, about 20 minutes. Refrigerate for easy cutting. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bars.
CLASSIC TV CLIP MOMENTS:
This is a very short clip from a real classic, TOPPER, starring EDWARD G. CARROLL as Topper, and Anne Jeffreys & Riobert Sterling as Marion & George Kirby, the ghosts that haunt Toppers house. They were actually married in real life and a made for perfect casting. If there was every a TV show that should be redone, this is it. Think of all the great things they could do with today's special effects.
