GREAT LIVES is Now AvailableGREAT LIVES is Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2016

Educational publisher Simply Charly is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of brief yet comprehensive biographies exploring the fascinating-and often misunderstood-lives of some of history's greatest authors, scientists, politicians, philosophers, and artists. Written by prominent scholars, academics, and other experts, the 'Great Lives' series is specifically designed for a general audience. It offers engaging and accessible introductions to many of the men and women whose genius profoundly changed their world and, in many cases, ours. The books not only illuminate their subjects' lives, but, especially in the case of writers, also offer significant insights into their bodies of work. 'People love to discover and explore the lives of history's great men and women,' says Charles Carlini, founder of Simply Charly and CEO of Carlini Media. 'However, we've found that they relate better to books that are concise and written in an interesting, attention-grabbing manner. Ours are exactly that: brief, but comprehensive and compelling. And that's why we used the word 'simply' in the titles.' The first slate of books-which includes Simply Darwin, Simply Dirac, Simply Dickens, Simply Faulkner and Simply Wittgenstein-will be released in digital form at the end of April 2016, with print versions to follow. Additional titles in the series, focusing on Ernest Hemingway, Jane Austen, Alfred Hitchcock, James Joyce, Richard Wagner, René Descartes, Virginia Woolf, and many others, will be published later this year. The e-books are priced at $7.99 and paperbacks at $8.99. The series has garnered considerable advance praise and critical acclaim. David Paroissien, editor of Dickens Quarterly, called Paul Schlicke's Simply Dickens an 'eminently accessible portrait, expertly blending the contours of Dickens's multivalent activities with commentary on his development as a novelist.' Similarly, David Sepkoski, Research Scholar at Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, said that Simply Darwin-whose author Michael Ruse is one of the world's foremost experts on the history of evolution-'provides an entertaining, stimulating, and provocative account of the life and legacy of Charles Darwin. This is one of the best short summaries of the topic available.' For more information and reviews, please visit http://simplycharly.com/books. 'Great Lives' book trailer https://youtu.be/DMSpx5pSWgQ. About Simply Charly Simply Charly is a one-stop portal to a wealth of information about some of the world's most prominent historical figures. Geared to students, teachers, and anyone interested in learning more about the great men and women who changed the world, the site's mission is to become the leading online source for everything visitors want to know about these groundbreaking individuals.

World Premiere Musical Adaptation of Austen's NORTHANGER ABBEY to Play Lifeline TheatreWorld Premiere Musical Adaptation of Austen's NORTHANGER ABBEY to Play Lifeline Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Mar 28, 2016

Lifeline Theatre presents Northanger Abbey, a world premiere musical with book by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Robert Kauzlaric (Non-Equity Jeff Awards: New Adaptation, The Island of Dr. Moreau and Neverwhere), music and lyrics by George Howe (Non-Equity Jeff Award: New Work-Musical, Queen Lucia), and directed by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Elise Kauzlaric (Non-Equity Jeff nomination: Director-Play, Mariette in Ecstasy), based on the novel by Jane Austen. Catherine Morland leaves her quiet country home for the splendors of Bath, armed only with an innocent heart and the examples of her favorite literary heroines. Immersed in a new world of parties, balls, and high society, Catherine soon finds herself caught in a web of social scheming far above her skill to master. False friends, greedy lovers, and a wealth of misunderstandings lead to the revelation that bruises of the heart can be far more painful than the imagined terrors of Gothic novels. The production runs approximately two and a half hours with one intermission. The book will be on sale in the lobby. (more...)
