Anika Larsen, Darius Nichols, Enrico Rodriguez & More Set for ZANNA, DON'T! Reunion Concert at 54 Below Tonight
by BWW News Desk - Jun 30, 2014

54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Zanna, Don't! Class Reunion, a concert presentation of the 2003 Off-Broadway cult favorite benefiting the Hetrick-Martin Institute for LGBTQ Youth. Tim Acito's beloved musical fairy tale is set in a world where gay is the norm, the Chess team is cool, and the football players are dorks. When the students put on an original musical about the hot-button issue of straights in the military (because if musical theater won't address important political issues, what will?), the opposite-sex leads realize their true feelings for each other and all hell breaks loose in the quiet town of Heartsville. It's up to magical matchmaker Zanna to put things right and bring love to all - including himself! (more...)

Laura Rathe Fine Art Announces a Group Show: 'Check Mate'
by BWW News Desk - Jun 14, 2014

Laura Rathe Fine Art Presents Check Mate, a group show in Houston, TX Laura Rathe Fine Art is pleased to present Check Mate, a group exhibition featuring Gil Bruvel, with an opening on Saturday, July 12, 2014, from 6 - 9pm. The Check Mate collection will be on view through August 29, 2014. Gil Bruvel's new series of steel Chess sculptures will debut in the Check Mate group show. These unique works convey the art of war and strategy through the game of Chess. Bruvel's goal, by designing a thematic Chess set, was to increase the sense of opposition between the two sides. As the design progressed, he also experienced a sense of fusion and complementarity between the two opposite sides. This theme relates to the evolution of styles and conceptions we have about what art means. On one side, the world is perceived and expressed with recognizable elements we can reference to perceived reality - the representational world. On the other side, the world as we conceptualize it using arbitrary elements, is expressed with how we value the contexts in which we understand it - the abstract world. Some elements may still be recognizable but they are just there to suggest and let the viewer form their own conclusions. Throughout his career, Bruvel has focused his energy on creating highly detailed surreal, representational work. Recently, he has challenged his artistic abilities by venturing into the world of the abstract. The creation of the Chess set represents the challenge of meshing the past with the present genres and the pursuit of continuing to push the envelope in his creative journey. Other artists exhibited include Tony Magar, Mel DeWees, Meredith Pardue, Roi James, Matt Devine, Chris Martin, Katherine Houston, and Michael Scultheis, among others. The majority of these artists are established abstract expressionists working in oil, acrylic, encaustic, steel, photography and other mixed media. About Laura Rathe Fine Art Formally established in 1998, Laura Rathe Fine Art represents a dynamic artist roster including emerging, mid-career, as well as blue-chip contemporary artists. With a primary focus on abstract expressionist painters, LRFA also represents sculptors, mixed media artists, and photographers. Located in the heart of the gallery and design districts of Houston and Dallas, Texas, LRFA provides art consultation services, hosts exhibitions and actively participates in notable art fairs. LRFA artists have been acquired into important private collections, as well as world-renowned corporate art collections, including BBVA Compass and HKS Architects Headquarters. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Perfectly Entertaining Mystery at 2nd Story Theatre's AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
by Robert Barossi - Jul 27, 2014

If there was an award for Rhode Island's current busiest man in show business, one of the nominees would absolutely have to be 2nd Story Theatre's Ed Shea. The company's Artistic Director is currently performing in the Downstage production of Freud's Last Session. Last night, in the Upstage space, he made an appearance and gave the curtain speech for Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, which he directed. During his visit upstairs, Shea spoke about summer stock theaters and how they once dotted the landscape in these parts. No longer as much of a presence as they once were, they featured a certain kind of theater experience, something lighter, more whimsical and fun than the weighty, thought-provoking works seen throughout the winter months. That sense of offering something entertaining and fun permeates his entire production of Christie's play, a perfect summertime treat of mystery and murder, tempered with the right amount of wit and whimsy.
