BWW Review: 44 PLAYS FOR 44 PRESIDENTS is an American History Geek's Turn On at CPT...But...by Roy Berko - Oct 19, 2016
Yes, in a period of two hours and twenty minutes, plus intermission, 44 plays whoosh across the Cleveland Public Theatre stage. During that time the audience is exposed to all of the United States of America's Presidents.

BWW Review: THAT LOVIN' FEELIN' at Lonny Chapman Theatreby Cary Ginell - Dec 30, 2015
The prospect of a new stage musical about the Righteous Brothers is an enticing idea, and with the premiere of That Lovin' Feelin', James A. Zimmerman's new production about the lives and careers of Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley, we ventured into the Valley to take in a performance. The show is being staged through January 24 at the Lonny Chapman Theatre in North Hollywood. As with all of our 'road trips,' there is a local Ventura County angle, in this case, Brenden MacDonald, a graduate of California Lutheran University's drama program who also attended Moorpark College, where he studied under John Loprieno. MacDonald fares well in his Group Rep Theatre debut but the production suffers from obvious miscasting and an overall unsatisfactory book, which fails to effectively portray the lives and tumultuous partnership of Hatfield and Medley.

BIGMOUTH Coming to Wharton Centerby BWW News Desk - Dec 16, 2015

Marquis Publishing Releases MURDER IN CALIFORNIAby BWW News Desk - Oct 27, 2015
Marquis Publishing, an affiliate of the Marquis Gallery announces the release of author and photographer Marques Vickers' 'Murder in California: The Topography of Evil.' The 417-page edition is a visual return to 101 infamous crime scenes detailing the shocking and often searing narratives behind each tragedy. Over 200 images amplify the experience by escorting the reader to the crime location, offering a critical context and perspective for understanding.
The captured snapshots portray visual testimonies of extinguished lives removed by acts of violence. Crime scenes often revert back into unremarkable landscape or unassuming buildings over the ensuing years and decades. Several have altered little since their moment of infamy. Many are passed daily by pedestrian and vehicular traffic unaware of a location's unique significance.
California has been the residence for many notorious individual and serial killers including the Zodiac, Ted 'Unabomber' Kaczynski, Dan White, Charles Manson, Sirhan Sirhan, Jim Jones, Richard Allen Davis, David Carpenter, Menendez Brothers, Juan Corona, Rodney Alcala, Phil Spector, Juan Corona, Richard Ramirez and Scott Peterson. The media has renamed some such as the Trailside Killer, Co-ed Killer, Children of Thunder, Vampire of Sacramento, Zebra Killers and the Death House Landlady.
The region has also buried notables among the profiled victims including Senator Robert Kennedy, San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, Supervisor Harvey Milk, Mobster Bugsy Siegel, Black Panther Huey P. Newton, Journalist Chauncey Bailey, Nicole Simpson-Brown, Rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G., Actors Haing Ngor, Ramon Novarro and Sal Mineo, Singers Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, Polly Klaas, Lacy Peterson and members from the People's Temple Massacre in Jonestown, Guyana and Heaven's Gate cult suicide in Rancho Santa Fe.
'The Murder in California' edition is segmented into nine categories including assassinations, abductions, historical legacies, reckless homicides, chance encounters and manslaughters, law enforcement fatalities and controversies, unsolved murders, rampage and serial killers.
An extensive listing of fatality victims is included along with convicted and deceased killers. Each living convict still registered within the California and other state penal systems is identified by their respective current penitentiary residence.
A paperback edition is available through Amazon.com and in electronic format via the Amazon Kindle online store. Supplementary videos on numerous prominent chapters are available on YouTube.com and Vimeo.com.
