Howard Hughes, The Associates, Peter Murphy and others, years ago. Inspired by DonSiegel's 1974 movie "Charley Varrick", diner is based on the opening robbery sequence, where Charley escapes with gang member Harmon and his fatally wounded getaway-driver-wife, Nadine. A Dickensian Parallel as well: Charley's small time bank job nets nearly a million from a Mob drop box and, like Pip in Great Expectations, his inheritance derived from a convict's exertions, Charley will be a rich man if he can disconnect his fortune from it's criminal past. I've reflected this in the meal: a very Victorian combination of fried egg on a pork chop.
Joanne Kim, originally from Massachusetts, is devoted to contemporary dance and traditional Korean dance forms. She has studied and performed with the Sutra Dance Company and Song Hee Lee Dance Company in New York as well as with Kinodance and Kelley Donovan & Dancers in Boston.
