Based on the works of Suetonius

The story of Caligula begins in a Rome plagued by the paranoia of its current ruler, Tiberius. Innocent citizens are routinely put to death for even the slightest suspicion of treason, and this fate eventually befalls Tiberius' own nephew, Germanicus (Sebastian Arcelus) and his wife (the excellent Shorey Walker). Their son, Caligula, and their daughter, Drusilla, are taken in by Tiberius and raised as his own children, largely because Caligula is considered a threat to the empire. As adults (Euan Morton and Brooke Sunny Moriber), Caligula and Drusilla engage in an incestuous relationship, which further blossoms after Tiberius dies and Caligula ascends to the role of emperor. Forced to take a bride (public opinion scorns the siblings' relationship), Caligula becomes despondent about his title, and after Drusilla's death, he descends into madness, violence and debauchery. He tries to make his horse a senator. He even turns the imperial palace into a whorehouse.

Review: SPAMALOT Thrills Spectators at Dearborn Players Thru May 24Review: SPAMALOT Thrills Spectators at Dearborn Players Thru May 24
by Anton Anderssen - May 12, 2015

Now on stage at The Players' Guild of Dearborn is the wonderful musical comedy SPAMALOT. Set sometime in the early middle ages, this highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend is bursting with wit. The opening act is theatre of the absurd in all its glory, when the villagers mistake the word Finland for England, and begin dancing and singing some outrageous 'slap the mayor in the face with a big fish' routine. Having Finnish blood, and Anglo-Scandinavian heritage, in general, I found this twisted plot deliciously insane, because I know people who would actually get the two places confused, and others who believe Scandinavians toss fish around at celebrations. Well, maybe some Scandinavians do, but that's another story all unto itself. (more...)

Worldpress.org Founder Announces Debut NovelWorldpress.org Founder Announces Debut Novel
by BWW News Desk - Dec 17, 2014

Bryce Cullen Publishing is excited to announce the release of Teri Schure's debut novel, 'Our Romantic Getaway.' Ms. Schure is the founder of worldpress.org, an international news website; a journalist; and a publishing and marketing consultant. With many articles and short stories appearing in various newspapers and magazines, it was only a matter of time before Ms. Schure had a novel-length tale to tell. 'Our Romantic Getaway' explores what happens when, due to an overbooking, one married couple's planned trip to a wholesome and relaxing vacation destination gets switched to a sex-crazed Mexican resort named Exotica. What was supposed to be a restful, romantic getaway turns out to be an experience straight out of the movie Caligula. But, after the initial shock of the clothing-optional environment wears off, the seven-day excursion turns into an exhilarating time and a journey of self-discovery and transformation. 'Our Romantic Getaway' is available in print and ebook at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and can also be ordered from most major booksellers. Ms. Schure is available for interviews and media appearances, as well as book signings and readings via tschure@terischure.com. (more...)
