BWW Review: LONE RIDERS Explores the Wild West in Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - May 18, 2016

Trinity Street Players invites audiences to slow down and admire the old west in their latest production, LONE RIDERS, within the quaint blackbox at the First Austin Baptist Church. This original work, written by Carol Wright Krause and directed by Manuel Zarate, hopefully will survive its first workshop unscathed. Traditionally, during workshop productions, the writing and direction are experimental  - meaning quite possibly audiences can only see this original work in its current form once. During this preliminary malleable phase of any show, daring production companies like Trinity Street Players introduce something that literally has never been seen before. This sense of adventure is linked to the spirit and theme of LONE RIDERS. The intimate cast of players and the wonderful guitar stylings of Walker Lyle, take you on their adventure forcing self-reflection of individuals' motives and point of view. (more...)

BWW Recap: GAME OF THRONES Raises Some Eyebrows in 'Book of the Stranger'
by Jessica Naftaly - May 16, 2016

This week's episode of Game of Thrones just aired, entitled “Book of the Stranger,” a title that had little to do with the episode besides a not so subtle namedrop halfway through. This episode delivered more of what Thrones is seemingly becoming more about; shocks, deaths, quips and nudity, and less of what it originally was; a human and complex drama. Despite Game of Thrones insistence that this year, women will be “on top,” we were once again force fed faux-feminism doubling as “empowerment,” while it double downed on it's misogyny, racism, and plain nonsensical storytelling.

Donna Foley Mabry Releases Fifth Book in 'The Manhattan Stories' Series
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

Las Vegas based best-selling author Donna Foley Mabry celebrates the release today of 'D'Arcy Curran,' the fifth book in her popular The Manhattan Stories series. 'D'Arcy Curran' is the first of a three volume tale that follows the stories of the Curran family in the small town of Manhattan, Kansas during the mid-19th century. From the book jacket: 'In 1861, in the small town of Manhattan, Kansas, the Curran girls have expectations of what their lives will be. D'Arcy, 12, redheaded and freckled, curious and rebellious, wants to grow up and dominate her world. Suzanne, not yet 18, wants only to marry her handsome lieutenant from Fort Riley, Jonathan Taylor. The beginning of The Civil War and Suzanne's one night of passion sends everyone's lives in an unexpected direction. Jonathan is sent to the battlefields that will determine the survival of the nation. To avoid scandal in their small town, the girls are sent to Detroit to live with family. They not only find a welcoming aunt and uncle, they discover a burgeoning city, both ugly and beautiful, rough and cultured, drunk and refined. As she matures, D'Arcy develops a friendship with the older boy next door, and it changes her opinion of men. Fate throws both girls undreamed-of twists, and D'Arcy is forced to cope. A rash decision changes everything. Will D'Arcy be prepared for the consequences?' About the Author: A Michigan native who studied writing in school, Donna first came to Vegas to make costumes and soon was weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girls' dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of 'The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries,' which include 'The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas,' 'The Las Vegas Desert Flower,' 'The Las Vegas Special,' 'Rough Ride in Vegas,' 'M.I.A. Las Vegas,' and the recently released 'The Las Vegas Sophisticate.' Her most popular novel, 'Maude,' the best-selling Kindle Direct Publishing non-fiction work of all time, is a #1 best-seller on Amazon and spent multiple weeks on the Wall Street Journal's Top-10 lists. 'Maude' is currently being translated into Russian and German, and was recently released in Italian under the title 'Non Avevo Scelta.' Donna has an admired series of historical romances, The Manhattan Stories, 'Jessica,' 'Pillsbury Crossing,' 'The Cabin,' 'Kimimela,' and released in April 'D'Arcy Curran' the first of a three-volume work in the series. She has written several other stand-alone thrillers, 'Desperate Ambition,' 'The Right Society,' and 'The Other Hand,' and a light-hearted work, 'Conversations With Skip,' the story of a shelter dog adopted by a young woman having trouble sleeping after her divorce.

BWW Review: Unusually Bold and Engrossing FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS by Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright at the Taper
by Don Grigware - Apr 25, 2016

Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks has the uncanny ability to get under your skin and really make you feel the turmoil and misery of the black soul. In her latest play, now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum through May 15 entitled Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3), Parks takes the audience back to 1862 and the slave involvement in The Civil War starting with the anticipation and fear of going off to war, then witnessing the horrors of the actual war itself, and the aftermath for returning soldiers and their families. Under the sturdy hand of director Jo Bonney, the cast is amazing... and the play is mostly fascinating to watch, mainly because Parks' style does not repeat itself from part to part. (more...)

LINCOLN'S BODYGUARD Now Available in Trade Paper
by BWW News Desk - Apr 20, 2016

The Story: In Lincoln's Bodyguard, an alternative version of American history, President Lincoln is saved from assassination. Though he prophesied his own death-the only way he believed the South would truly surrender-Lincoln never accounted for the heroics of his bodyguard, Joseph Foster. A biracial mix of white and Miami Indian, Joseph makes an enemy of the South by killing John Wilkes Booth and preventing the death of the president. His wife is murdered and his daughter kidnapped, sending Joseph on a revenge-fueled rampage to recover his daughter. When his search fails, he disappears as the nation falls into a simmering insurgency instead of an end to the War. Years later, Joseph is still running from his past when he receives a letter from Lincoln pleading for help. The President has a secret mission. Pursued from the outset, Joseph turns to the only person who might help, the woman he abandoned years earlier. If he can win Molly over, he might just fulfill the President's urgent request, find his daughter, and maybe even hasten the end of the War. (more...)

Political Commentator Cokie Roberts to Speak at Library Foundation Fundraiser
by BWW News Desk - Apr 14, 2016

Emmy Award-winning television host and NPR political commentator Cokie Roberts will bring her knowledge and perspective of Washington D.C. power dynamics - both present and past - to Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday, May 18 at a fundraising event for the Broward Public Library Foundation. The evening event, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., includes a cocktail reception, book sales and signings and a talk by Roberts at the NSU Art Museum (One East Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). In her latest book, 'Capital Dames: The Civil War and the Women of Washington, 1848-1868,' Roberts continues to document the role women have played in American history. 'Capital Dames' does not shy away from the campaigns, controversies, and scandals churning in the streets of the nation's capital. At the same time, Roberts honors the scores of ordinary Washington women who worked in munitions factories, sewed gunpowder bags for the Navy Yard, or cut out paper money at the Treasury. The New York Times Book Review said about the author: 'Cokie Roberts regularly dissects the power dynamics of modern-day Washington. As an author, though, she's demonstrated a special regard for the farther reaches of American history and its behind-the-scenes players.' With a lifetime of experience in the thick of Washington politics and a deep and abiding interest in the role women have played in American history, Roberts has a singular perspective and is perfectly placed to reassess the importance of women in shaping our country. Cokie Roberts' appearance will benefit the Library Foundation, whose mission is to enhance the collections, programs and services of the Broward County Library system beyond the means of public funding. Tickets are $75. For details and tickets, call BPL Foundation at 954-357-7382 or visit www.bplfoundation.org/cokie-roberts. (more...)
