InDepth InterView: Richard LaGravenese On Writing/Directing THE LAST FIVE YEARS Film, Plus BEHIND THE CANDELABRA, Two New TV Series & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Mar 31, 2014

Today we are talking to a multi-talented creative force who has had a hand in crafting a wide range of memorable and vivid characters over the course of his career as both a screenwriter and a director - the earnest and energetic Richard LaGravenese. Detailing the finer points of his forthcoming stage-to-screen iteration of Jason Robert Brown's beloved cult musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, LaGravenese traces the development of the project from his earliest inspiration through to the final finished film, now awaiting distribution. Additionally, LaGravenese opens up about the casting process and reformatting of the piece for the cinematic medium, as well as previews some of the standout moments we can anticipate when the film is finally released - musical, dramatic, stylistic and otherwise. Besides all about THE LAST FIVE YEARS, LaGravenese also discusses his screenplay for the recent rapturously-received HBO Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra and reacts to its international success, as well as shares thoughts on the cast and the script as it was realized on film by director Steven Soderbergh. Plus, LaGravenese offers us the exclusive 411 on his upcoming currently untitled CW TV series, directed by Taylor Hackford, and sheds some light on his contributions to Angelina Jole's new film UNBROKEN, as well as previews his forthcoming WE TV project coming up later this year, too. All of that, a look back at P.S. I LOVE YOU and more in this expansive conversation with a noted modern entertainment master. (more...)

African American Artist Unveils Painting at Mother's Day Tea, 5/10
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2014

African American artist and doll maker, Beverly Collins, will fully unveil her newest painting, 'High Tea 2,' at an afternoon tea to honor mothers hosted by her company b.collins Studio at Brownstone Bistro on Saturday, May 10, 2014, from 12 Noon to 3 p.m. Guests will enjoy assorted teas, an array of savory finger sandwiches, and sweet creations in traditional high tea fashion. The first 25 guests with paid reservations will receive Mother's Day brooches designed especially for the occasion and a special gift from b.collins Studio. There will be prizes for the prettiest hats and cups, raffles, a silent auction, and a petite boutique. The price is $50 for tickets purchased by April 30th. Reservations are required. Gross proceeds from the silent auction will benefit breast cancer research. Collins painted the first 'High Tea' in 2003 for a fundraiser benefiting a friend who was in the last stages of breast cancer and needed funds to seek aggressive treatment not covered by her insurance. This friend later succumbed to her illness and died. Collins remembers witnessing as a child her grandmother in the last stages of breast cancer at a time when much less was known about the disease. In later years one of Collins' aunts endured a radical mastectomy considered standard treatment at the time, later another aunt succumbed to the disease and died, and numerous friends and associates have had to face the challenge of breast cancer. Fortunately, although scarred, most ended their challenge with favorable outcomes. Collins performs a self-examination daily. With art Collins hopes to contribute to the day when mothers and daughters everywhere will live in a world where breast cancer is a thing of the past. (more...)
