BWW Review: Raucous Fun in Ghost Light's MACBETT but Lacks LevelsBWW Review: Raucous Fun in Ghost Light's MACBETT but Lacks Levels
by Jay Irwin - Mar 13, 2017

It's fine to be in the audience's face and have a scene's energy turned up to 11 but when you do it for the entire play, it gets tiring. That's the issue with Ghost Light Theatricals' current production of "Macbett". Sure it's an absurdist comedy piece but they can have levels too and without them, by the end of the play you wish they'd stop yelling at you. (more...)

Lori Bookstein Fine Art to Present Review of John Crawford Exhibit, TodayLori Bookstein Fine Art to Present Review of John Crawford Exhibit, Today
by BWW News Desk - Oct 20, 2016

John Crawford, a Brooklyn-based artist whose output consists of welded steel sculptures, spent 10 years (1976–86) in Tuscany working at a blacksmith's shop after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design. Since 1995, he has been interested in the smithing works of various West African cultures. As a result of these models, his work is highly tactile, abstract, and often totemic. Abstract steel sculpture has a long, illustrious history in the U.S., but Crawford's vision is quite different. He borrows from the forms of other places to create work that openly relates to its making, as well as to the history of American creativity. Interestingly, there is a sensuality and organic quality to his forms, often made of rings and coils, somewhat at odds with their industrial construction. Such differences, however, thrive and meld in Crawford's work. (more...)
