Actress Jennifer Grey won
television’s Dancing With the Stars contest on Tuesday, beating Kyle Massey and
Bristol Palin in the finale.
Grey, 50, who co-starred with the late actor
Patrick Swayze in the 1987 movie Dirty Dancing, was named champion at the end of
a two-hour broadcast, capping three months of weekly ballroom routines and
Massey, 19, a former That’s So Raven Disney Channel child
star, was runner-up. Palin, 20, the daughter of conservative politician Sarah
Palin, ended in third place.
The winner was determined by a combination
of scores from the show’s three judges and what producers said was a record
amount of votes from the audience at home of more than 20 million
viewers.Young Habima company tackle Moliere
Shay Pitovski and his gifted
Young Habima company tackle Moliere in the master’s Mr. de Pourceaugnac. It’s
yet another variation on the classic commedia theme of youth versus age. Julie’s
father has engaged her in marriage to well-to-do Mr. P. So he’s a tad older than
she is. So she’s in love with handsome young Eraste.
Too bad! Enter the
wily Sbrigani, and with his connivance, the young lovers prepare a reception for
Pourceaugnac that he never expected in his worst nightmares. Moliere
and his company presented the comedy to Louis XIV in 1669. The play opens
December 5 at Tel Aviv’s Tzavta Theater. • Helen Kaye
