Lori Bookstein Fine Art to Present Review of John Crawford Exhibit, 10/20Lori Bookstein Fine Art to Present Review of John Crawford Exhibit, 10/20
by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 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...)

BWW Interview: Giles Taylor of QUEEN...IT'S A KINDA MAGIC! at Athenaeum TheatreBWW Interview: Giles Taylor of QUEEN...IT'S A KINDA MAGIC! at Athenaeum Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Jun 4, 2016

He would have been 70 this year, and people mourn his death as acutely today as they did when it was announced, so much so that the name Freddie has become exclusively synonymous to his memory as one of the most unique, boundary-pushing and talented singer/songwriters of all time. Accompanied by similarly legendary musicians who still perform under the name to this day (they're soon to conclude their European tour fronted by Adam Lambert), Queen are proven time and time again to still be audience favourites in everything from karaoke to musical theatre extravaganzas and tribute juggernauts. The latest of these to reach Australian Queen fans features the incredible Giles Taylor, who I was fortunate enough to connect with and discuss his excitement about returning Down Under. (more...)

Slipstream Announces Production of EASTERSlipstream Announces Production of EASTER
by BWW News Desk - Feb 24, 2016

After an extended run of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, Slipstream is lightening up a bit just in time for spring. The young company is proudly presenting Easter by August Strindberg. One of his lesser known plays, this production delves into the darkness and light of religious allegory. A family unit is publicly ruined and awaits the "Giant" to come and take away everything they own to pay a very old debt. With characters that remind us of ourselves and of certain Biblical figures, the play gives the audience a chance to rethink the stories they thought they knew, posing thought-provoking questions. What is sanity, and who are we to define it? When we suffer, is someone not suffering more? If a debt is owed, must it not be paid? And, how far can you see with your magnifying eye? (more...)

There have been a multitude of successful revivals over the years and this one is currently enjoying a couple of pre-West End engagements before it opens at the Savoy Theatre for a limited run, starting next month.
