BWW Recap: Truth and Consequence on THE GOOD WIFE
by Jacqueline Bublitz - May 3, 2016

This doesn't feel like a penultimate episode. Like the penultimate episode. Mind you I'm watching 'Verdict' with a slight fever and a large dose of feeling sorry for myself. And perhaps I'm in denial. Surely this is just any old episode of THE GOOD WIFE. Presenting a ton of moving parts that will take weeks and months to resolve (with some, inexplicably, let go along the way). That's THE GOOD WIFE we know and love, right? (more...)

BWW Exclusive: Dame Judi Dench Discusses Shakespeare, Her Passion, CATS, Potential Broadway Return
by Matt Tamanini - May 27, 2016

Only some are able to ever identify their specific passion, far fewer are able to achieve, and only a select handful are able to make their passion their life's work; Judi Dench is one of those few. When I asked her why, despite a career spanning more than five and a half decades, and nearly every major acting award the world over, she continues to return to the plays of William Shakespeare, in a tone exceedingly gentle, yet slightly dismayed that the question need even be asked, she said, 'Cause that's my passion, Matt.'

Flaming Leaf Press Presents New Novel by Gudjon Bergmann
by BWW News Desk - Mar 29, 2016

Why would a psychiatrist who has been meditating for more than thirty years try to commit suicide? That is the question that drives protagonist Robert Davis in this spiritual mystery set in Austin, TX. The novel challenges preconceived ideas that meditation must always have beneficial effects. It explores the practice in relation to death, personal philosophy, and community. The backdrop is the everyday life of a recovering alcoholic, lead parent, and therapist Robert Davis, whose whole life is upended after a meeting suicidal patient Dr. Vigo Andersen at the Austin Psychiatric Hospital. In his search for answers, Robert is sucked into a philosophical vortex that threatens everything he holds dear, including his marriage, his sobriety, his business, even his sanity. Will he lose everything or will he solve the puzzle? 'I wanted to write something real,' says veteran nonfiction author Gudjon Bergmann about his debut novel. 'Everyone knows that it is impossible to be happy and peppy all the time. Unfortunately, many of my peers in the self-developmental and New Age community would have us believe that. I wanted to write about the struggles that Come Along with spiritual practice, the confusion, the doubt, and the internal battles. Meditation does not create a steady ascent to enlightenment and there are many possible pitfalls. Few people acknowledge that. This novel will hopefully ignite a debate that explores the practice from all sides.' Where did he get the idea for The Meditating Psychiatrist Who Tried to Kill Himself? 'Fifteen years ago an acquaintance of mine, who taught Eastern meditation techniques, attempted to commit suicide. I could never figure out why. Meditation is supposed to elicit peace of mind, not longing for death, right? For me, it seemed like the perfect question to wrestle with in my debut novel.' Bergmann was born in Iceland in 1972, but moved the USA in 2010 and became a US citizen in 2013. He lives in Kyle, TX, with his wife and two children. He has written more than twenty nonfiction books about meditation, smoking cessation, mindful yoga, and stress management, to name a few topics.

BWW Review: An Underdone Gem Shines with Seattle Shake's MRS. WARREN'S PROFESSION
by Jay Irwin - Mar 24, 2016

When people think of George Bernard Shaw plays they inevitably go to "Pygmalion" or "Arms and the Man" or something like that. But there's one of his out there that does not see enough of the light of day, "Mrs. Warren's Profession". Maybe it's due to the subject matter or maybe not enough people know about it. Who knows? But it's long been one of my personal favorites so when I saw that Seattle Shakespeare Company was putting it up; you can imagine how excited I was. But of course the cynic in me quickly turned that excitement to trepidation with the thoughts of "Oh please don't screw up one of the few times this show will be done around here." Well lucky for me and for all you Dear Readers, who should rush out and catch this before it's gone, the Seattle Shakespeare Company does absolute honor to this fantastic work with some tight direction from Victor Pappas and performances to rival any production out there (yes, including the one I saw in New York a few years back).
