BWW Review: Disturbing TUSK is One of the Best Movies of the Year
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 19, 2014

If you don't like watching excessive gore, don't see TUSK. If you don't like watching depraved human violence, don't see TUSK. If you don't like watching extreme human mutilation, don't see TUSK. However, if you are able to stomach this type of content in exchange for a wickedly glorious story, then there is no acceptable excuse for not seeing TUSK, the masterpiece of Kevin Smith's already storied career. Though I will undoubtedly be in the minority with this opinion, TUSK is unquestionably my favorite movie of the year. (more...)

Now in Print & eBook: 'Seven Days to Goodbye' by South Carolina Author Sheri S. Levy
by BWW News Desk - Sep 14, 2014

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the engaging YA service dog puppy raiser novel, 'Seven Days to Goodbye' by Simsonville, South Carolina author Sheri S. Levy. 'Seven Days to Goodbye is Levy's first novel; her article about a Diabetic Alert dog, 'Scent with Love,' was published in 'Clubhouse Magazine' and was nominated for a Maxwell Medallion Award from the Dog Writer's Association of America (DWAA). After Trina's beloved dog dies, she swears she'll never get another one. But then she learns about service dogs, and realizes if she becomes a puppy raiser, she could train puppy after puppy and never worry about them dying. But like all great ideas, this one has a serious flaw: her first service puppy must be returned to his kennel at the end of their week-long summer vacation. And saying goodbye to Sydney is going to be much tougher than she ever imagined. Trina's last week with Sydney is made that much harder by her newly strained friendship with her Best Friend, Sarah, who's become so over-the-top boy crazy that she's almost like a stranger. Sarah is determined to have them hang out with every boy at the beach, but when a boy named Chase takes an interest in Sydney and Trina, it puts an even bigger strain on the friendship. It's hard enough to deal with losing Sydney, but now she may lose her Best Friend, too. And even if she manages to patch things up with Sarah-and figures out what to do about Chase-she still must face a daunting decision: is she strong enough to take on another service puppy? Ask for 'Seven Days to Goodbye' at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other Internet bookstores.

Photo Flash: First Look at Dennis Parlato, Donna Vivino and More in SIX PASSIONATE WOMEN at TNC
by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

Nino, an Italian film maker with a strong resemblance to Federico Fellini, is in an artistic crisis. Every new work is, for him, an artistic crisis. So he goes to bed with a multitude of women, seeking ideas and stimulation, feeding on them both humanly and artistically. Nino is sexually impotent until he gets a good idea, and then he's hellfire. But his sexual partners, all artists in their own right, are not satisfied. Rallied by a wealthy feminist American widow, they decide that to be a muse is to be exploited. So they exact revenge by making a movie of Nino's life and fantasies, Candid Camera-Style. Thus unfolds 'Six Passionate Women' by Mario Fratti, a play inspired by the playwright's personal acquaintance with Fellini, whom he covered closely as a journalist in the late 1950s. It combines a serious disquisition on the creative mind with recurring themes of Fratti's plays: betrayal, jealousy and sexual politics. Theater for the New City will present the piece October 9 to 26, directed by Stephan Morrow. Dennis Parlato, as the film maker, heads a cast of eight that is peppered with Broadway vets. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast below! (more...)
