Ed Asner Starring in FDR

"Well, I do have to tell you: the White House is much nicer than the governor's mansion," Franklin Delano Roosevelt opines as he agilely moves on a pair of canes around his home office of the past decade. His presidency drawing to a close, the man looks back on the Great Depression, World War II, and overcoming the shadow of his cousin Teddy, who stole his name from a stuffed bear. Seven-time Emmy winner Ed Asner squeezes into the role of the president with perfect aplomb, delivering lines—such as, "If I'm 51% convinced of something, I can move ahead with it . . . If I waited for 100%, I'd never get anything done"—with humor and authority.

Martin Short

Martin Short in the 2006 Broadway show Fame Becomes Me

Even though legendary comedian and Order of Canada member Martin Short has two stars on Canada’s Walk of Fame, he deserves a galaxy more for all of the characters he’s created. Throughout his decades-long career, the veteran showman’s alter egos—including Jiminy Glick, Ed Grimley, Nathan Thurm, and razzle-dazzle Jackie Rogers, Jr.—have all taken on lives of their own. The charismatic chameleon first rose to fame on Canada’s Second City Television, where he scored his first Emmy award. When Saturday Night Live added the energetic Canadian to its roster, no humor was lost in translation as America quickly fell for his high-wire high jinks. Short also stole the show in big-screen outings such as Three Amigos, Innerspace, and Father of the Bride, and he later starred in his own autobiographical musical, Fame Becomes Me, which tickled Broadway in 2006.

Bergen Performing Arts Center

In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.

In a Nutshell
