BWW Reviews: Seattle Shakes Brings Fresh and Exhilarating Take on TWELFTH NIGHTBWW Reviews: Seattle Shakes Brings Fresh and Exhilarating Take on TWELFTH NIGHT
by Jay Irwin - Oct 27, 2014

How many times have we all seen "Twelfth Night"? It is one of Shakespeare's most accessible and arguably one of his best plays and therefore one of his most often trotted out pieces. Even Seattle Shakespeare Company admits this current production is the fifth time they've done it in their 24 year history. So I'll admit to a less than enthusiastic attitude when I was off to see it. I mean, what can they do with "Twelfth Night" really? Well, apparently, they can fill it with a stupendous cast, direct it with a kind of 1920's yet otherworldly vibe, liven up all the comedy and flourish it with some hauntingly melancholy original music and turn it into a feast for the senses making this war horse once again a glittering show pony.

New Christian Biographical Fiction by Olea Nel is AnnouncedNew Christian Biographical Fiction by Olea Nel is Announced
by BWW News Desk - Nov 3, 2014

Historically accurate, and based upon Andrew Murray's letters and early biographies, Nel's book allows readers to observe how Andrew Murray at twenty-one is able to straddle the divide between Boer and Brit and grow into his role as lone pastor, eager to serve his far-flung congregation of over 20,000 souls. A boyish and fun-loving Andrew Murray arrives back in South Africa after being ordained at The Hague on his twentieth birthday. He soon discovers that his preaching lacks the power displayed by his heroes of the faith. He therefore decides to embark on a quest to become a powerful preacher filled with the Holy Spirit. But not long after his appointment as pastor to the Dutch emigrants beyond the borders of the Cape, he finds that he is being shunted off course by a frenetic round of preaching tours that sap his energy and leave him little time to spend with God. He also finds himself having to cope with an overly demanding church council, as well as walk a tightrope between the Boer farmers and the British Settler community who are Bent on land speculation to the detriment of neighboring tribes. Feeling overwhelmed by the task, and knowing that he was pressed into taking it, he starts to doubt his calling. It does not take him long to realize that he has to either man-up or bow out. 'Andrew Murray: Destined to Serve' is available in both print and ebook format. Book Details: Andrew Murray: Destined to Serve By Olea Nel Publisher: Calirvaux House Published: October 2014 ISBN: 978-0992567101 AISN: B00O0IMIH6 Pages: 316 Genre: Christian Biographical Fiction About The Author: Dr. Olea Nel was born in Cape Town, South Africa.

BWW Reviews: Britain's Barb Jungr Makes Stirring Political Statements Through the Songs of Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen in Intense, Compelling Show at 59E59BWW Reviews: Britain's Barb Jungr Makes Stirring Political Statements Through the Songs of Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen in Intense, Compelling Show at 59E59
by Stephen Hanks - Nov 1, 2014

Any visit by celebrated chanteuse Barb Jungr to a New York cabaret stage or theatre is a cause for jubilation. Slightly less than a year since she rocked 59E59 with her week long run of Dancing In the Dark, Jungr was back on that stage with a new show based on her recently released, highly-acclaimed CD, Hard Rain: The Songs of Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen. But where Dancing In the Dark was Jungr's introspective take on some classic pop songs (including some Dylan and Cohen), her Hard Rain set is truly dark and Jungr doesn't apologize for that. In fact, often during this collection of songs written by two of pop music's foremost dark poets of the soul (with stirring arrangements by Jungr and her CD Producer Simon Wallace), Jungr readily admits the set is depressing because her intent was to focus on Dylan and Cohen songs that were at once powerful, personal, political, philosophical, and often prophetic.
