BWW Review: I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO Is A Bold And Searing Decoding of America's Racial DivideBWW Review: I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO Is A Bold And Searing Decoding of America's Racial Divide
by Herbert Paine - Feb 10, 2017

James Baldwin spoke truths about the racial divide in America with an economy of language, a piercing intensity, an indisputable authority, and an authenticity that is sorely absent in today's discussions. Thanks to Raoul Peck, that gap has been filled by one of the most important documentaries of our time, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, which has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature for the 89th Academy Awards and will be screened at this year's Sedona International Film Festival, which runs from February 18th through the 26th.

BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London OpeningBWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Jan 23, 2017

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to. The side effect of Death's occupation being, though, that he can't collect anyone else while he's so distracted - Death the person and death the concept take a break!  Maury was kind enough to discuss his musical background, some of his better-known works and his latest venture for the stage.
