Off to See Lucia Palmieri Perform in Central Park

WestportNow.com Image
Members of the Westport-based “Lucia Palmieri Fan Club” got together for a meal today at Mario’s Place in the Saugatuck area before more than 35 of them traveled together to New York’s Central Park for tonight’s performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” in which Westporter Palmieri, a seasoned soprano, portrayed the character Ines in the four-act opera. Seated with Lucia’s mother, Lynda Palmieri (c), were (l-r): Joe Valiante, godfather; The Rev. Frank McGrath; Joe Delia, Lucia’s great uncle, and Beverly Valiante, godmother. Lucia Palmieri, in a telephone interview, expressed her gratitude for the large Westport turnout. “My family is so generous and loving,” she said. “I feel like the most loved person on the planet.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Eileen Wiseman: “I’m here to help build support and excitement.” Contributed photo
New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre has named Eileen Wiseman, a longtime leader at the Westport Arts Center, its new development director, effective immediately.

Wiseman, a Weston resident who joined the Long Wharf Theatre development staff in April, had spent the past eight years as the executive/artistic director of the Westport Arts Center, overseeing 60 programs a year including exhibitions, concerts, lectures, and literature and film programs.

“All my life I’ve been coming to this theater—-it is the place I learned to love live performance, the place that shaped my sense of what theater should be,” Wiseman said.

“Long Wharf Theatre has a strong sense of mission and the artistic and organizational confidence to use this crazy time we’re in to plot an even more interesting, vital path into the future.

New Stop Sign Installed at Woodcock Lane and Newtown Tpk.

WestportNow.com Image
Less than a week after it was approved by the Westport Board of Selectmen (See WestportNow July 9, 2009), a new stop sign has gone up on the southbound side of Newtown Turnpike at the intersection of Woodcock Lane. Residents said a blind spot obscures their view of oncoming traffic as they exit Woodcock Lane and there have been accidents and near-misses. The Police Department opposed installation of the sign saying it was likely to cause rear-end accidents.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
