by Stephen Hanks - Jan 21, 2015

As the days dwindled down to a precious few in 2014, a few cabaret goers and performers in what is affectionately but also self-mockingly called the “cabaret community” would sidle up and ask if I was planning my annual end-of-the year “Best Of” column, similar to the “Top 20 Bests and Favorites” piece over the first half of the year I posted back in early July. I would respond in the negative with very reasonable and believable excuses, but the truth is I didn't want to reveal my “Bests” of the year until the voting for the 2014 BroadwayWorld New York Cabaret Awards had ended. There's enough baggage and backstage whispering that comes with administering the BWW Awards, so I wasn't about to publish any opinions that might influence the vote while it was in process. I may be crazy but I'm not masochistic. But now all bets are off. You want lists? I'll give you lists. (more...)

Barcham Books Launches Kindle Direct Publishing GiveawayBarcham Books Launches Kindle Direct Publishing Giveaway
by BWW News Desk - Dec 8, 2014

Title: 'Murder in Hand' (Alicia Allen Investigates Trilogy, Book 3) Author: Celia Conrad Copyright: 2012 Publisher: Barcham Books Pages: 352 Trade Paperback and All E-Book Formats ISBN 13: 978-0954623340 ASIN: B00A1O1YQE 'The greatest pleasures lie in Celia Conrad's refusal or inability to write for the lowest common denominator. Instead she aims for the highest.' -Midwest Book Review (Murder in Hand) On Dec. 13 through Dec. 14, Barcham Books will gift readers with Book 3 in Celia Conrad's Alicia Allen Investigates Trilogy (AAI), 'Murder in Hand' (MIH), as a free e-book via Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Select program. 'It's our way of saying thank you and wishing everyone a happy holiday,' said Barcham Books' Jane Hall. 'We are very pleased that Midwest Book Review features Murder in Hand this month. Everyone, it seems, just loves Alicia.' This cerebral legal murder mystery turns on Italian international corruption, Puccini and dead Probate attorneys as it hails the return of Alicia Allen, the potato chip loving half-Italian London lawyer who never lets her thriving relationship with a handsome lawyer cohort stand in the way of fingering a culprit. 'The beauty of Murder in Hand is that it can be read as a stand-alone,' said Hall. Journalist Marlan Warren recently sat down with Celia Conrad to discuss her author's journey from law to legal crime fiction: Warren: All the AAI books deal with the darker side of the legal world. Did you draw from your experiences as a London attorney? Conrad: As a solicitor I met some rather obnoxious people and a few shady/unsavory characters. Warren: Did you ever find yourself pursuing a murderer in your law practice? Conrad: My world is far less dangerous than Alicia's, although we do share love for Italian culture and a crisp that rhymes with 'Tingles.' We both like researching and analyzing complex legal issues. Warren: The Italophile Book Review recommended MIH for 'Italophiles, Anglophiles, fans of traditional British mysteries, and fans of cozy-murder-mysteries.' Would you agree? Conrad: Absolutely. And I was thrilled when the Readers' Favorite 5-Star Award Review said Alicia 'should be on the top of every woman's reading list.' My fan mail shows AAI readers like strong but not perfect female detectives, and they love the repartee between Alicia and Alex. Warren: Book 1 sends Alicia through London's urban dangers. Book 2 takes her to Australia, and Book 3 spans New York, London, Italy and Sicily. Italian culture provides color and clues. What inspired you to use Puccini in Book 3? Conrad: When I first saw Puccini's opera, Gianni Schicchi, I hoped to use it in a plot of my own, and it did prove most 'handy' in 'Murder in Hand.' Warren: Can you sum up Alicia Allen? Conrad: She's a tough little cookie who will stop at nothing. Warren: And the theme of MIH ? Conrad: Forces of darkness are everywhere. Warren: What inspired you? Conrad: Paul Marsh at the Marsh Agency suggested my experiences could make good novels. Warren: Clues reside in Shakespeare, Italian opera and art. Why the Classics? Conrad: I've always loved the Classics, thanks to my mother who also loved theater. Before she passed away, we read and acted out scenes from the trilogy. Warren: This is a re-launch. Why? Conrad: AAI never had a launch because I was caught up in the losses of my mother and Paul Marsh at the time of publication. Paul thought MIH my best work yet. He said Alicia Allen deserved to find her audience. That support continues to sustain me.

BWW Reviews: CELIA BERK Launches Belated Cabaret Career With a Solid CD Release and Impressive Debut ShowBWW Reviews: CELIA BERK Launches Belated Cabaret Career With a Solid CD Release and Impressive Debut Show
by John Hoglund - Dec 7, 2014

Watching a singer like Celia Berk, who brings a heartwarming balance, a subtle good humor, originality, and a lot of affection to everything she sings, makes one realize the crucial role good instincts play in the self-conscious, self-absorbed world of cabaret. Right at the top of her recent debut run of shows titled You Can't Rush Spring (the title of her recently released excellent debut CD) at the Metropolitan Room, this New Yorker from the business world ingratiated herself with the audience by admitting she was fulfilling a lifelong dream. Berk had already built a following with a few excellent guest performances (most notably at this past October's Cabaret Convention at Lincoln Center) and in this auspicious debut she proved she easily puts her personal stamp on an eclectic mix of songs. Such ability springs directly from who she is and not from someone's idea of who she should be. (more...)

by Stephen Hanks - Dec 26, 2014

If you've been a regular reader of this particular reviewer's musings, you know that every year there are long stretches of time where I just haven't been able to critique all the shows I've seen that deserve commentary. So I end up playing what they call in sports, 'Catch-up ball,' and post a mash up of belated reviews from past shows. It's kind of like a critic's version of the song 'Six Months Out of Every Year,' from Damn Yankees. Give or take a month or two, that's usually the time period during which I store unpublished reviews in my fevered brain and then unload them all in one seemingly endless column-like this one is going to be. If my cabaret-show reviewing days will be over (as chronicled here), I might as well go out with a bang-and relieve my procrastination guilt during holiday season. Now I can scratch one New Year's resolution off the list. (more...)
