BWW Reviews: MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG at Le Petit Theatreby Heidi Scheuermann - Jul 2, 2015
Le Petit Theatre wrapped up their 2014-2015 season with crowd pleaser MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG. Music and lyrics written by none other than the amazing Stephen Sondheim, MERRILY tells the story of a one Franklin Shepard (Richard Arnold) and his rise to fame in Hollywood. Sounds like a dream, right? But you see, there's a catch. Frank's road to becoming a great Hollywood producer comes with loss in other areas of his life. He abandons his career as a Broadway musical composer along with his family and friends. Turns out fame and money aren't what bring Frank the happiness that he is looking for. (more...)

IS SHE AVAILABLE? is Announcedby BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2015
Launching at next week's San Diego Comic Con with a panel of award winning artists.
Trailer: http://tinyurl.com/ndeuwkThe illuminated book is a contemporary Dante's Inferno; a journey through the confessional landscape of a masculine identity. It uses poetry to construct a narrative that explores themes of death and loss, sex and love, and the modern American and Jewish identity.
'Is She Available?' combines popular genres such as comics with the arcane avant-garde use of art and exceptional dynamic typographic layout.
'It was Goldkind who popularized the phrase 'graphic novel' with the media.... Now, Goldkind's vision of what graphic novels could be, is returning.' -Bleeding Cool
'Poet and storyteller Igor Goldkind is the eclectic individual with a universal voice and vision who has auteured and produced 'Is She Available?' -downthetubes
'Is She Available?' is a web-nurtured collaboration between Igor Goldkind and 27 artists, sculptors and musicians from the world of Comics, Fantasy, Fine Art and Jazz, including Bill Sienkiewicz, David Lloyd, Liam Sharp, Glenn Fabry, Shaky Kane, Lars Henkel and the cutting edge sculptural typography of the highly acclaimed Rian Hughes.
'Is She Available?' pushes the edge of what is possible with present EPUB3 technology and how books are created and made. It is not an App, it is a true book that marries pop art, comics, avant-garde, jazz, spoken word poetry, video and animations, and type design. Its creative journey was more than a year in the making, growing from the collaborative work of artists, musicians, editors, and designers on two continents.' - Adriano Bulla's Literature Blog
Composer and world jazz virtuoso, Gilad Atzmon improvises along with a quintet of his musicians responding to Igor's poetry to create powerfully evocative sound tracks available for separate download and contained within the eBook editions. A Multi Media, Spoken Word & Music Performance Tour will happen later this year.

BWW Reviews: Singer WENDY A. RUSSELL Reflects On Her Life With Solid Debut Show at Don't Tell Mamaby Billie Roe - Jun 28, 2015
From the moment she steps on stage and sings the entire first verse of Gloria Estefan's “Coming Out of the Dark”–-in the dark--you get the impression this is not going to be one of those usual personal journey “I've-been-everywhere-and-done-everything” kind of acts. In her debut show, Where Have I Been All My Life (June 18 and 27 at Don't Tell Mama), Wendy A. Russell vividly presents the personal metamorphosis of a post-modern woman. Quoting Woody Allen's “90% of life is just showing up,” Russell states she showed up 100% of the time and still found life lacking, which is understandable considering she was raised with the “good girl” mentality of the 1960s “Mad Men” era.

BWW Reviews: LES MISERABLES at Casa Mananaby Kyle West - Jun 25, 2015
My first experience with LES MISERABLES was in 1996, as a tween performing in my school's musical review. While most other kids learned the material and moved on, I saved my pennies for the cast recording, memorizing the show word-for-word. After moving to New York in 2004, my work provided me with virtually unlimited tickets to the city's hottest shows. By the time LES MISERABLES returned to Broadway (in 2006, with a carbon-copy revival of the original production that had closed three years previously), I was a jaded New York twenty-something, no longer inspired by the 'tourist trap' hits. Then, as I sat in the darkened Broadhurst Theatre, the turntable moved, and I realized I was watching an unparalleled piece of theatre history. (more...)
