It features the adventures of an ambitious turkey named Anamazie Marie LaBelle, in a vivid tale children ages five to eight are likely to gobble up. (more...)

BWW Reviews: They Do Not Serve Who Only Stand And Wait - THE UNDERSTUDY at Everyman
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 2, 2014

We come into life with a desire to do meaningful things, just as an understudy comes into the theater motivated to produce great thespian art. Yet if the understudy is our avatar, how discouraging is his example! For, as in Rebeck's play, the understudy's task is condemned to nearly certain futility. Particularly so on today's Broadway, where plays are too often packaged as vehicles for screen stars whom the audience pays a large premium to see, in productions with limited runs. The setup is almost guaranteed to incentivize producers to demand that the big screen stars appear at every performance, and to incentivize the stars to do so, affording no opportunity to the understudies.

by Jade Kops - Sep 1, 2014

The historic State Theatre in Sydney was filled with John Denver fans on Sunday night and they were not disappointed.

The show, produced with John Denver Management approval and support from Denver's personal manager and friend Harold Thau, is a mix of concert and documentary of Denver's life with projections of archival footage, voice over and live music.

You Can't Take It With You: Designer Statements
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Aug 25, 2014

Central to the comic plot of You Can't Take It with You are the eccentricities of the Sycamore family. The entire three-act play takes place in the house where this extended family lives in upper Manhattan. We wanted the audience to get the sense that this family doesn't quite conform to their surroundings from the moment they enter the theater, so, rather than a standard show curtain, they see the front porch of a fully three dimensional, faintly Victorian, turn-of-the-century house, flanked on each side by renderings of two relatively modern apartment buildings from the 1930s. Inspired by architectural 'holdouts' that are sprinkled throughout New York City, this image creates a stark contrast between the Sycamore house and the prevailing aesthetic of the rest of the neighborhood -- playfully hinting at the quirky family that the audience is about to meet.

Dr. Kalyan's PIRATES OF BOLLYWOOD, a Thrilling Legal Adventure in Bombay, Available for Pre-Order
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Dr. Kalyan's second law thriller novel in his Intellectual Property Fiction series has just been released for pre-order on Apple IBooks and Kobo. A legal adventure set in Bombay, the novel takes the reader through a gripping tale of film production, piracy and pillage. Unwittingly drawn into a violent war between producers and pirates, Arjun, a young, blind lawyer, goes on a wild goose chase in the city of dreams. Film producers, record labels, and software companies have been grappling with copyright piracy for a very long time. Several research studies have concluded that losses from piracy to various creative industries are in billions of dollars. A recent study of he Indian Chamber of Commerce estimates losses from piracy in India to be more than a billion dollars. Many scholars have also established strong linkages between piracy, terrorism and organized crime. In this backdrop, Dr. Kalyan's "Pirates of Bollywood," fictionalizes and dramaticizes the ongoing war between producers, pirates and police. Arjun, the protagonist from Dr. Kalyan's first work, "Road Humps and Sidewalks," a drug patent thriller, gets drawn into a fierce war between producers and pirates, spurring him to unravel the pirate puzzle. The novel is the first of its kind in the legal fiction genre. Talking about his second novel, Dr. Kalyan said, "Piracy is a way of life in India. Against the odds of stringent laws, and enforcement systems, the piracy business manages to survive and prosper. I have always wondered if there is much more in piracy than meets the eye. 'Pirates of Bollywood' gives Wings to some of my wild conspiracy theories about the linkages between piracy, film production and crime." Dr. Kalyan Kankanala is a leading Intellectual Property attorney in India, and manages the largest new age Intellectual Property (IP) Firm, BananaIP Counsels. He also consults for United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), and teaches at premier institutions such as National Law School and Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. Dr. Kalyan's law thrillers are aimed at taking IP knowledge to the public, and encouraging debates on socially relevant IP themes.

I'm a huge fan of that whole musical genre - The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones. We thought, why not try to adapt the guitar-heavy sound of Led Zeppelin into our style (which for this concert includes a grand piano, keyboard, drums and bass)? It's been challenging, but oh, so much fun." (more...)
