by Jessica Naftaly - Sep 29, 2016

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.

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.

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.

BWW Review: JULIUS CAESAR Embraces Mother Russia at the Hylton Performing Arts Center
by Hannah Wing - Oct 19, 2015

'I will do so. Till then, think of the world,' Cassius says this to Brutus in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar is Shakespeare's gripping political drama about the fall of Julius Caesar in the hands of a group of conspirators led by Brutus and Cassius. Prince William Little Theatre's production of Julius Caesar doesn't take place in the play's traditional time period and this is certainly for the better. In this production, 'the world' that Cassius refers to isn't Rome, but Russia. (more...)

Each October for the past several years, I have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming the Halloween Season by attending WICKED LIT, produced by Unbound Productions at the spooky Mountain View Mausoleum & Cemetery in Altadena.

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...)
