Three weeks into American Horror Story's sixth season and just three more weeks until the all too anticipated twist that creator Ryan Murphy confirmed in episode 6. “Chapter Three” brought us death, gore, and some trademark disturbing fornication. It also didn't light up on the horror, which has been what “My Roanoke Nightmare” has been most undoubtably praised for.  (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 26, 2016

Beginning 3 November, Hauser & Wirth will present 'Memory Ware', the first exhibition since 2001 devoted exclusively to the celebrated series of the same name by the late Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley (1954 – 2012).

Ex Cop's Detective Trilogy Is Now Available as eBook
by BWW News Desk - Oct 25, 2016

Written by an ex-Los Angeles cop, the intriguing crime series takes readers deep behind the scenes into how criminal investigations really unfold. In the first book, 'After a While You Wonder', five former L.A. police officers reunite for lunch in 1977. They reminisce about the 77th Street Division, and talk about racism, riots, and their lives on LAPD's strong blue line of silence during the 1960s. Two months before the 1965 Watts Riot, one of the men corroborated the testimony of a white officer who accused the LAPD of being racist. (more...)

BWW Review: CFTA's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN Will Have You Laughing All The Way Home
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 25, 2016

Patrick Kramer's commanding performance as Frederick Frankenstein (that's 'FRONKENsteen' for the uninitiated) in the Center for the Arts' production of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein is reason enough to buy a ticket (if you're lucky enough to score one - shows are playing to capacity crowds in Murfreesboro, so make your reservations yesterday), but director Renee Robinson and musical director Stephen Burnette very adroitly surround him with such strong support that the entire ensemble of Transylvanian thespians is worth the price of admission.

2nd Edition Hardback Novel from G.W. Mullins, 'Redemption A Gay Paranormal Mystery / Love Story' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2016

Redemption is the story of an older teen who recently came out while enduring the death of his father and the challenges of moving to a new town. With a new home, he sought peace and a chance to heal, what he found was two unsolved murders and that there was something living in his house with him. After the death of his father, Benjamin starts a new life in a seaside town in New York where he and his mother move into a strange gothic house with a terrible history. From the moment Benjamin starts to settle in, he feels he was being watched. He is sure they were not alone in the house. As Benjamin learns of his new home, he is told of a past resident who fell to her death on the nearby cliffs at the same time that her teenage son, Eli, disappeared. Eli, now a ghostly Apparition, appears to Benjamin and claims that his mother's death was a murder, not suicide and asks for Benjamin's help in bringing the dangerous killer to justice. The mystery unfolds as Benjamin enlists the help of the hunky new friend he has made named Joe. A romance develops between them, but does Joe know more about the murder and disappearance than he is letting on? Will Benjamin live to solve the murder? This story is the first in a series of Paranormal Fantasy/Gay Romance that kicks off an epic trilogy of love, life and a fight to survive. For further information, on his writing visit G.W.

BWW Review: Upstream Theater's Haunting SHINING CITY
by Chris Gibson - Feb 15, 2016

Everyone needs someone who's a good listener when they're troubled. And, when you find yourself hesitant or unable to open up to a loved one about something, you can always seek out a therapist to talk to. Therapists offer objective observations that allow their patients to express their feelings without the fear of being judged harshly or over-critically. They're also there to provide assistance in modifying behaviors and thought patterns which are affecting your ability to fully function, at least, if they're any good at what they do. But, they're people too. They have their own lives and their own baggage. Playwright Conor McPherson enters this private world with his work, SHINING CITY, a spellbinding examination of a group of people who all seem to have 'unfinished business', and as director Toni Dorfman notes in the program, 'a need for absolution'. Upstream Theater's production is excellent, and I found myself completely immersed to the point where the play lingered in my memory for days after I'd seen it. That's compelling stuff, and it's the type of work that Upstream does on a consistent basis. (more...)
