Cheyenne Jackson to Bring Music of the Mad Men Era to L.A.

first_imgWhen you’re throwing a party, you’ve gotta invite Cheyenne Jackson! The Broadway star, along with Emmy winner Jane Lynch and Rebecca Romijn, will bring his Music of the Mad Men Era concert to L.A.’s Walt Disney Concert Hall on April 26. Jackson and his special guests will sing lounge music from the ‘50s and ‘60s accompanied by members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The concert hall is celebrating its 10th anniversary season. Jackson has also performed his popular Music of the Mad Men Era concert at New York City’s Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln and Kennedy Centers in Washington, D.C. The concert is described as centering on “a time when bossa nova was new, the lounges of New York City were hip, and catchy dance music spun on every hi-fi.” Jackson, who jumped from Broadway’s Xanadu and Finian’s Rainbow to TV’s 30 Rock and Glee, will perform hits of the era such as “Feeling Good,” “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sway.” Jackson most recently appeared on Broadway as a porn star in The Performers, with other credits including Aida, Thoroughly Modern Millie and All Shook Up. His upcoming film credits include Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks and Opening Night. On stage, he’ll appear with Laura Benanti in the Encores! revival of The Most Happy Fella in April.

Americans not eating enough fruits, veggies

first_imgATLANTA – Fewer than a third of American adults eat the amount of fruits and vegetables the government recommends, a trend that’s remained steady for more than a decade, health officials said Thursday. That’s “well below” the government’s goal of getting 75percent of Americans to eat two servings of fruits and having half of the population consume three servings of vegetables each day by 2010, said Dr. Larry Cohen of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The diet survey, part of a huge federal health survey of every state, is based on responses from 305,000 adults in 2005. It indicates the country is only about halfway toward meeting its healthy eating goal three years from now. “We’re really concerned with the lack of success in meeting these national goals,” said Cohen, who works in CDC’s nutrition and physical activity division. Although the rate of fruit and vegetable consumption has remained unchanged since 1994, health officials said the goal is still within reach. Specifically, the survey showed that 27percent of adults ate vegetables three times a day, and about 33percent ate fruit twice a day. A serving size is a half-cup for most fruits and vegetables, one cup for leafy greens. Senior citizens were more likely than others to follow Mom’s advice to eat more veggies, with slightly more than a third of that group eating three or more servings each day. Younger adults, age 18 to 24, ate the fewest vegetables. Nearly four-fifths of that age category scraped the veggies to the side of their plates – if they had vegetables on the plate at all. Likewise, seniors also ate the most fruit, with nearly 46percent eating two or more servings of fruit daily. People age 35 to 44 ate fruit the least, with fewer than 28percent eating the recommended amount daily. Cohen said future surveys will ask people what other foods they are eating. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
