Posted: 09/27/2012 - The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company’s is celebrating and kicking off the 25th season with Gypsy, America’s most acclaimed musical. Premiering on Broadway in 1959, Gypsy debuted at the end of the golden age of musical comedy, and symbolizes the beginning of true musical theatre, a new era that straddled the lines between comedy and drama. Gypsy follows the life of burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee and is full of comedy, honest drama, and vivacious musical numbers with lyrics written by a young Stephen Sondheim. For Sondheim, Gypsy was his second Broadway lyrical writing credit following West Side Story. For the Fine Arts Center, Gypsy marks the seventh Sondheim-penned production. "Gypsy is quite possibly the pinnacle of American musical theatre and I'm thrilled to kick off our 25th anniversary main stage season with this classic,” said Scott RC Levy, the show’s director and Theatre Company’s Producing Artistic Director. “From the opening note of the rousing overture to the final knockout moment, this production will prove to be an excellent addition to the history of high-quality productions our audience has come to expect."

Posted: 09/26/2012 - A new scam is targeting people who get social security benefits. It's pretty simple. Crooks get their hands on personal information, like a full name and bank account number. Then they contact the social security administration and ask them to reroute the payments to their own accounts, such as a bank account or prepaid debit card. This new scam is gaining speed just as the social security administration prepares to switch all beneficiaries to direct deposit, instead of mailing them paper checks. In order to protect your identity: -Be wary of calls or emails from people asking for personal information -Tell the agency (SSA) that no changes can be made to your account unless you appear in person with an ID. If you have social security and haven't seen a benefits payment in a few days, then get a letter saying that changes have been made to your direct deposit, experts say you should report it immediately. To tell the agency that you only want to make changes in person, visit: www.socialsecurity.gov/blockaccess The Social Security Administration says anyone who believes they are victims of fraud should contact the inspector general at: http://oig.ssa.gov/report-fraud-waste-or-abuse
