BWW Reviews: The Guthrie Theater and Lyric Arts Present Two Different Versions of the Heartwarming A CHRISTMAS CAROLBWW Reviews: The Guthrie Theater and Lyric Arts Present Two Different Versions of the Heartwarming A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Jill Schafer - Nov 23, 2014

Charles Dickens' novella A CHRISTMAS CAROL has become a staple of holiday traditions. It shouldn't be surprising, then, that this classic story can currently be seen on multiple stages in the Twin Cities. The biggest of these is the Guthrie Theater; this is the 40th year that the Guthrie has produced A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I think it's safe to say this is one of their most popular shows every year, with many families incorporating it into their annual traditions. Lyric Arts is also producing the show on their Main Street Stage in Anoka. I was lucky enough to see these two different interpretations of this classic story on back-to-back nights. And while I do have a clear favorite between the two, it's really unfair to compare them too closely. Both are entertaining and creative interpretations of Charles Dickens' heartwarming story about the rich-in-money poor-in-friends businessman who learns through the visitation of four Ghosts that it's better to be kind than rich.

Techno-Thriller, 'Twilight Visitor,' Depicts Reality of Nuclear Threat to EarthTechno-Thriller, 'Twilight Visitor,' Depicts Reality of Nuclear Threat to Earth
by BWW News Desk - Dec 7, 2014

Since its publication just two months ago, by Netherworld Books (UK), "Twilight Visitor" has already been described as '...a high concept thriller that is comparable with the best of Dan Brown or Jack Higgins,' says novelist, David Luddington. Book-Reviewer.com says, 'The story races along with (the) pace of a Tom Clancy thriller...' "Twilight Visitor" is a global thriller which depicts an all too-real energy-desperate China shocking the world with its sudden invasion into Iran to secure its oil. Meanwhile, a lonely man sits on the beach of his home village in Portugal, trying to resolve his dysfunctional personal life, when he meets a strange mystery woman who informs him that because of his special field of knowledge that he alone holds the answer to an impending and inevitable global nuclear war which is about to occur and which leaders seem helpless to stop. Two worlds collide, as the Sino-Persian conflict escalates in just 24 hours into a global debacle, and as this one man comes head-to-head with the Ghosts of his own past, fighting to hold onto a shadow of himself while refusing to do anything about the approaching crisis. A high tech, high-octane, adrenaline-pumping thriller with political and philosophical insights which pose many questions. About the Author: Réal Laplaine is an internationally published author, mostly in the genre of thrillers and techno-thrillers. While he currently lives in Sweden, he was born in Canada. His roots however trace back to Spain, where his grandfather was born and raised, and thereafter emigrated to Canada where he married an indigenous Indian. Thus it is no surprise that a good part of Twilight Visitor takes place on the coastal region of the Iberian Peninsula. (more...)

by Jill Schafer - Dec 1, 2014

'Tis the season for stories of sad, lonely, grumpy people who experience a change of heart and learn to love their fellow citizens, whether of London or Whoville. After a double bill of CHRISTMAS CAROLs last week, I saw a similar story this week in Dr. Seuss' classic fable HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS. Like Scrooge, the Grinch hates Christmas, people, and dogs. Also like Scrooge, the Grinch learns how wrong he was, not from Ghosts but from one sweet open-hearted little girl. Where A CHRISTMAS CAROL is the perfect image of a Victorian Christmas, THE GRINCH takes place in the fantastical rhyming world familiar to anyone who's read Dr. Seuss, or had it read to them, as the case may be with much of Children's Theatre Company's audience. It's a bright and colorful, silly and funny, sweet and heart-warming tale of redemption and love. (more...)

And as much as I enjoyed it last year there was something even more magical and special in the air for this year's production (or they spiked my eggnog) as I completely found myself swept away by this incredible show and, yes, crying my eyes out.
