by BWW News Desk - Nov 30, 2015

Andrea Rosen Gallery is delighted to announce the representation of Simon Fujiwara. United by a common sense of formal and conceptual rigor, the artists in the gallery's program are each defined by having a distinct territory. 'I have been following Simon's work for a number of years,' Rosen says, 'and I am so pleased that his success is a reflection of the singular point of view in his practice. I am always impressed By the Way his work is able to simultaneously hold both content and mystery.'  The addition of new artists to the program is always incredibly exciting. At this time, the development of new artist relationships is an essential part of gallery's agenda and we look forward to sharing additional exciting news soon.  (more...)

BWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Ties Up Loose Ends on Tonight's Season FinaleBWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Ties Up Loose Ends on Tonight's Season Finale
by Kara McCoy - Nov 17, 2015

Alright, folks. It's season finale time, so let's just cut to the chase. Finales are all about tying up loose ends, and tonight's episode of THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER was no exception. First there's that little issue of vengeance that's been hanging over Wilk and Toran's heads since pretty much the pilot. Would tonight finally be the night to avenge their butchered wives? Well...Actually...No. And turns out, I am so okay with that, because all season long, I couldn't help but look at Leon and Locke and think, y'know what, they kinda seem...not...that...bad...? In the first of many showdowns tonight, Toran confronts Locke about his wife's slaughter. Locke admits that he acted under orders, but totally owns what he did. He takes responsibility, but he seems sorry for it--even if he doesn't come out and say it. He doesn't beg for mercy because he knows he doesn't deserve it. Toran, in turn, says that Locke has at least earned himself a fair fight. Which was really nice of him, but I don't think he actually expected to lose. Lucky for him, Locke is a pretty honorable guy and chooses to spare Toran's life, on the agreement that their score is now settled. So. There's Toran's vengeance. Check. (more...)

BWW Review: Unexpectedly Entertaining BULLETS OVER BROADWAY Spray Like ConfettiBWW Review: Unexpectedly Entertaining BULLETS OVER BROADWAY Spray Like Confetti
by Don Grigware - Jan 6, 2016

As Helen Sinclair (Emma Stratton) holds her hand over playwright David Shayne's (Michael Williams) mouth (picture above), fans of the 1994 film Bullets Over Broadway are bound to chuckle as they remember the famously unforgettable line spoken by the movie's Helen Sinclair Oscar winner Dianne Weist, 'Don't speak!' Weist, Jennifer Tilly as Olive and Chaz Palminteri as Cheech stole the brilliant film, so when I heard a couple of years ago that they were rehashing this for a Broadway musical, my reaction was 'Sacrilege! Why? Don't tamper with perfection!' Well, they didn't listen to me, obviously, as the musical went forward, and for some sketchy reasons, was a flop on Broadway. Let me tell you, as reluctant as I was to see the musical now onstage at the Pantages through January 24, I am glad I did, for it is actually quite good, with mostly sparkling performances, ingenious choreography recreated from Susan Stroman's original, fabulous costumes by William Ivey Long...and it's faithful to the film. No one dared to touch Woody Allen's uncannily sharp plot, dialogue and laugh lines. Yes, it could have an original score, but what is accomplished with the old standards aiding in moving the story forward, kind of like in Mamma Mia, works damn well. It's fun, ear and eye-filling entertainment! (more...)

Tayo Oredein Hosts Book Giveaway for HIS PHD IS IN HYPOCRISY... AND OTHER POEMS ABOUT MY CRAPPY EX-BOYFRIENDTayo Oredein Hosts Book Giveaway for HIS PHD IS IN HYPOCRISY... AND OTHER POEMS ABOUT MY CRAPPY EX-BOYFRIEND
by BWW News Desk - Jan 4, 2016

Tayo Oredein, an author, model and actress from Queens, NY is giving away free electronic copies of her book 'His PhD is in Hypocrisy...And Other Poems about My Crappy Ex-Boyfriend.' The book is a collection of poems recounting the author's interreligious and interracial relationship with her then-boyfriend, a Muslim man with family ties to Palestine. Oredein says her relationship with her ex-boyfriend is largely responsible for steering her away from Islamophobia after the 9/11 attacks. She is hosting the give-away in the hopes that her story can help raise awareness about Islam, and reduce the tensions that have risen given recent events. 'Before my ex, the only exposure that I had to Muslims was what I saw on TV. It was nothing but negative stereotypes,' Oredein says. 'But then we started dating, and I was around him, and his family and friends all the time. I learned a lot about Islam- what it is, and what it isn't- and how the literal root of the word means 'peace'. Even though he and I obviously didn't end on great terms, if it weren't for him, I would have jumped on the anti-Muslim bandwagon out of ignorance along with everyone else.' Donald Trump's call to ban Muslims from entering the United States and other fear mongering tactics has only increased distrust and strained relationships with respect to the Islamic community. Oredein, who identifies as an African-American, and as Christian, is frustrated By the Way Muslims are being portrayed and treated in the media. She decided to give away free copies of her book in hopes of changing the messaging surrounding Muslims. 'When I hear anti-Muslim rhetoric leads an eight-year old child to think she is going to be ripped from her home, it breaks my heart. I'm just hoping that my story can open some eyes, minds and hearts with respect to our Muslim brothers and sisters- because that's exactly who they are - They are our brothers and sisters.' So far 'His PhD is in Hypocrisy...And Other Poems about My Crappy Ex-Boyfriend' has been well received and has been mentioned for contributing to the abatement of Islamophobia. 'The book ends with the 9/11 tragedy, and Tayo's wisdom to understand the meaning that her relationship with Steve gave her, how it informed her not to respond to the attacks in hatred,' says Rebecca Danos, PhD. Michael T. Lyle, Jr, News Reporter/Writer for AM 1220 WQUN Radio, adds 'In the post-9/11 environment, Tayo not only manages to overcome the tragic events of that somber day, but by also proving through even in the most trying of times, hate and rage are no match for love and hope. A must-read for anyone seeking inspiration in times of despair and uncertainty.' The give-away is set to begin on January 1, 2016 and will last at least through the end of the year. The book will still be available for purchase in ebook and paperback formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and other online retailers. However free electronic copies of the memoir can be requested by reaching out to the author via email at tytaytai@gmail.com, or on social media using her handle '@tytayai'. To request the book on Twitter or Instagram, tag Oredein with her user handle using the hashtags #HisPhdIsInHypocrisy, #FreeCopy, and #TheRootOfIslamIsPeace. Interested parties can also make a request by sending a message to the book's or author's Facebook fan pages. Tayo Oredein is a writer from Jamaica, Queens NY and has degrees from Wellesley College, Hunter College (CUNY) and Rutgers University. She also models and acts. 'His PhD is in Hypocrisy...And Other Poems about My Crappy Ex-Boyfriend' is her first book. Oredein is available for interviews and appearances. For booking presentations, media appearances, interviews, and/or book-signings contact her directly at tytaytai@gmail.com (more...)

She completely sold both story lines and sang her face off.  The vocal performance that this character requires is no easy feat and Burns made it look effortless. (more...)

There was the infectious music of Alan Menken, who long ago set the 'gold standard' for the resurgence of Disney animation beginning with THE LITTLE MERMAID; there was, too, the 'underdog' hero ('Jack Kelley,' played with panache and charisma by Joey Barreiro), who serves as a point of inspiration for a horde of ragtag 'newsies'; and instead of an 'Ariel' or 'Belle,' there was 'Katherine,' the spirited young 'girl reporter,' who, with her independence and ingenuity, could fall right in line with the other young heroines of Disney films.
