AT THE SUNRISE ‘Magic’: P. B9
BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer PHOTO COURTESY OF A.E. BACKUS MUSEUM
1 At 6,137 performances, Manuel Carela’s “Magical Moment” – featuring his daughter (reading St. Lucie Voice, naturally) – won the Manipulated Imagery category of Backus’ Through the Eye of the Camera competition.
“A Chorus Line” is the
sixth-longest running Broadway
show ever, and it’s coming to Fort
Pierce’s Sunrise Theatre, Broad-
way and Beyond on 2nd Street,
Tuesday, April 17. From the ge-
nius of legendary composer
Marvin Hamlisch, this Tony- and
Pulitzer-winning musical is, in-
deed, a singular sensation you’ll
want to see again, or you must
see for the first time. As no show
has done as poignantly before
or since, “A Chorus Line,” says
the promo, realistically evokes
both the glamour and grind of
showbiz, and “is the musical for
everyone who’s ever had a dream
and put it all on the line.” The set
is a bare stage, where 17 dancers
are “on the line,” auditioning for
their chance of a lifetime, a spot
in the chorus line of a Broadway
show, a dream they’ve worked
for their whole lives. The bril-
liant score includes unforgetta-
ble numbers such as “What I Did
for Love,” “One,” “I Hope I Get It”
and others, and the choreogra-
phy is sensational. Show time is

CAN YOU CORRECTLY USE YOUR CONVENTIONS? WEST NORTH EAST
Q 10 3 98654 J
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist KQJ92 A7 10 8 3
J 10 5 743 A96
You probably have a copy of “25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know” by Barbara J3 972 K Q 10 8 6 5
Seagram and Marc Smith. Now comes a companion book, “Practice Makes Perfect”
by Seagram and David Bird (Master Point Press). In each of the 25 chapters, you get a SOUTH
précis of the convention followed by four instructive deals showing that convention in AK72
action. (It is a pity that each deal isn’t set as a 26-card problem first, but then the book 654
would be huge.) KQ82
In this deal, how should South plan the play in three spades after West leads the heart
king? Dealer: South; Vulnerable: East-West
North used a transfer bid, showing five-plus spades and at least zero points! I think The Bidding:
South should have rebid three spades, a superaccept showing four-card support, a
doubleton somewhere and an excellent hand for play in spades. SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
1 NT Pass 2 Hearts Pass
Given the 3-1 spade break, the dummy (the long-trump hand) has six potential losers: 2 Spades Pass Pass 3 Clubs LEAD:
one spade, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. One of North’s clubs can be ruffed 3 Spades Pass Pass Pass King Hearts
in the South hand, so declarer needs to find East with the diamond ace.
After winning with dummy’s heart ace, South should lead a diamond toward his hand.
Assuming East ducks, declarer wins with his king, takes his top trumps and returns a
heart. West wins, cashes the spade queen and shifts to the club jack, but South wins
with his ace, ruffs his last heart on the board and leads a second diamond toward his
hand to get home.
Master Point Press books are usually available in printed and PDF editions, the latter
being a tad cheaper.
