New Book of Interviews with Poet Gregory Corso is ReleasedNew Book of Interviews with Poet Gregory Corso is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2015

After five years of research and editing, Rick Schober, publisher at Tough Poets Press (Arlington, MA), has announced the completion of 'The Whole Shot: Collected Interviews with Gregory Corso.' The 202-page book is a collection of 13 rare and out-of-print interviews with Beat poet Gregory Corso (1930-2001) that span the most productive years of his career: from 1955, when his first collection of poems was published, to 1982, the year following the publication of his last book of all new poetry. The foreword was written by Dick Brukenfeld, publisher of Corso's The Vestal Lady on Brattle and Other Poems (1955), and recounts the poet's early days in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and as a 'stowaway' on the Harvard University campus. Corso was the youngest of the inner circle of writers (along with Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs) who were responsible for launching and popularizing the Beat movement in American literature. Two of Corso's earlier collections of poetry, Gasoline (1958) and The Happy Birthday of Death (1960), are considered to be groundbreaking works of twentieth-century American literature and yet, unlike the other major Beat writers, both he and his poetry are relatively unknown today. Among the works included in this collection are two pieces by humorist and syndicated newspaper columnist Art Buchwald, as well as an early interview by Victor Bockris, noted biographer of Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, Keith Richards, Patti Smith, Blondie, Muhammad Ali, and others. Advance reviews from eminent Beat literature scholars have praised 'The Whole Shot' as 'an important collection of interviews that provide a fascinating glimpse into the thoughts, writings and life of a Beat writer who deserves closer attention,' 'highly readable,' 'a valuable contribution to our understanding of an original and vigorous poetic voice,' and 'essential reading for anyone with an interest in Gregory Corso, the Beat Generation, or modern poetry.' To help defray the costs associated with self-publishing The Whole Shot, Schober has recently launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign which will run through March 26, 2015, which would have been Corso's eight-fifth birthday. Visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/1860098210/the-whole-shot-interviews-with-beat-poet-gregory-c for information on how to support this book project by pre-ordering a copy for as little as $15.

SPOILER ALERT! Review: Despite Hiccups, PETER PAN LIVE! Thrives as Broadway Stars ShineSPOILER ALERT! Review: Despite Hiccups, PETER PAN LIVE! Thrives as Broadway Stars Shine
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 4, 2014

Growing up, my brother, sister, and I wore out our VHS recording of one of Mary Martin's TV productions of PETER PAN. Mixed in between viewings of APOLLO 13 and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, we learned every word to every song, and while I don't remember dancing along with the Lost Boys, there is no doubt that we could have, if asked. I've never seen the musical on stage, so, for me, PETER PAN simply belongs on TV; and producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan spared no fiary dust in creating a magical PETER PAN that reinforced why this holiday tradition should never grow up and fly away. Despite a handful of hiccups that befall many live productions, simply put, PETER PAN LIVE! is a triumph for children young and old. (more...)

by Billie Roe - Nov 22, 2014

Every year, despite a litany of warnings they come to the Big Apple with big dreams. Warnings like: “You have to pay your dues.” “It's a tough business, kid.” “How are you going to survive?” There's no such thing as an overnight success, yet still they come to be at “the top of the heap,” as Kander and Ebb so eloquently put it. The four young performers featured here haven't yet vaulted to the top of the cabaret heap, but they've certainly made their marks with excellent shows during 2014, while exhibiting the potential to get there. The spotlight is already shining on Chrysten Peddie, Angela Dirksen, Rembert Block, and Kristoffer Lowe. (more...)
