Mil­wau­kee Zoo

Ever won­der how much ele­phants eat, or where kudus sleep when it’s cold out­side? Find out this week­end, when the zoo opens some of its an­i­mal en­clo­sures and staff-only ar­eas – like its win­ter quar­ters, train­ing cen­ter and “gro­cery store” – to the pub­lic for be­hind-the-scenes tours.

Tony DeSare tick­les the ivories while belt­ing out hits by some of the world’s great­est pop mu­sic pi­anists, past and present. Think Ray Charles, Billy Joel, El­ton John and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Ron is now 72 years old but he writes with more con­sis­tency than just about any­one I’ve heard about. If he’s not pol­ish­ing a script, he’s look­ing for fi­nanc­ing for an­other project. I’m also in­ter­ested in how a pro­fes­sional ballplayer [Shel­ton played in the mi­nors for a time] can be such an in­cred­i­ble poet.
