Command Decision Now in eBook
by BWW News Desk - Apr 24, 2014

NEW YORK, NY - William Wister Haines memorialized his experience as a U.S. Air Force officer in his telling of Command Decision, now in eBook, published by RosettaBooks. Originally written for the stage, producers feared the play came too soon after the close of the war and would not be welcomed by a war-weary public.

FAIRY TALES, SONGS OF THE DANDELION WOMAN to Run 5/8-16 at Little Stage Theater
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2014

From May 8 through May 16, the Little Stage Theater at SoBe Institute of the Arts becomes the portal to FAIRY TALES, Songs of the Dandelion Woman, a 90-minute music-theater trip 'down the rabbit hole.' With a score and libretto created by Carson Kievman, this contemporary operatic song cycle hurtles through a kaleidoscopically shifting mental landscape, past the borderline between hilarity and madness, into a surrealistic dislocation. This parallel world, very much like our own as seen through a magnifying glass, is created as the Bank Examiner (Ken Mattice, baritone) and The Dandelion Woman (Megan Brus, soprano) become aware of each other: an authority figure who is charged with determining her competence, and a misfit who moves with angular grace through her own private world, and is charismatic enough to dismantle the system simply by living as she pleases.

Sontaag to Release Space Opera, 4/28
by BWW News Desk - Apr 17, 2014

In the grand tradition of high concept progressive rock comes an epic cross-media hybrid where cerebral science Fiction meets visceral rock 'n' roll. Sontaag's eponymous debut album has been described as 'the space opera that Pink Floyd never wrote', 'a modern-day Tubular Bells', 'a prog-rock War Of The Worlds', but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative ambience quite as neatly as 'sonic cinema'. Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth (Killing Joke, The Fireman) for Big Life Management, 'Sontaag' is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today's digital environment. (more...)
