BWW Review: Theatre Novi Most's THE SEAGULL is an Odd and Enchanting Dream of a Production
by Jill Schafer - Mar 7, 2016

Chekhov's THE SEAGULL is a classic of the theater, but I had never seen it. That's not exactly true, it was actually the first play I ever saw at the Guthrie, but being almost 25 years ago, I have no recollection of it. So it was as if I'd never seen it when I sat down to yesterday's matinee production of THE SEAGULL by Theatre Novi Most, a company that specializes in Eastern European theater, as part of the Southern Theater's ARTShare program. It took me a few minutes to get into this story of many inter-related characters with strange sounding names, but by intermission I was completely under its spell. This is one of those shows that is so completely captivating that it's hard to shake when you leave the theater. Funny, tragic, odd, and completely enchanting. (more...)

Phalgun Prativadi's Book Earns Publishing Company's Award of Literary Excellence
by BWW News Desk - Jun 21, 2016

Author Phalgun Prativadi hopes readers find his new novel thought-provoking and enjoyable to read. At least one reader agrees that it is, which led to 'Being and Becoming' earning a Dog Ear Publishing Award of Literary Excellence. 'My editor Leslie Hatch's comments were very insightful, I felt, and reflected the kinds of things that I had hoped would reach the reader,' Prativadi said. Dog Ear Publishing Award of Literary Excellence winners are determined by the company's editorial team. Dog Ear Publishing's editorial team decides which products qualify for the award, and the recommendations are then reviewed by the managing editor, editorial services manager and the publisher. Winning books include the award logo on their covers. Prativadi couldn't be more pleased about the award. 'I was surprised, honestly, and flattered,' he said. 'After researching it on the Internet, I saw how seriously Dog Ear takes the award and how proud they are of it and, as a result, recognized what an honor it was. I told my family, and they were proud as well.' 'Being and Becoming' features Dr. Arya Krish, a physician and medical researcher whose father was among those to make discoveries advancing biosynthetic human tissue transplantation (and earned a Nobel Prize for Medicine posthumously for it). Organ transplantation dramatically changes the outlook for those in the United States, and the wealth associated with that treatment allows the medical institute to do humanitarian work in India and other places. But corruption and shady dealings take their toll on this doctor with a conscience, and when Krish's worst fears are confirmed, he must wrestle with the idea that the end justifies the means. Prativadi, an infectious diseases physician in Pittsburgh, said because this was his first attempt at writing an original novel, he worked carefully. 'I tried (and learned) to be patient in the writing process and feel that I was successful in telling a story in my own original style and use it to share some reflections on our shared human condition,' he said. Although Prativadi has written a few articles and took creative writing in college, he clearly remembers when the writer inside him was born - freshman year of high school. 'I was mediocre in my English class at best, until my mother dutifully and faithfully pushed me to achieve my potential.' The resulting essay on 'Great Expectations' was so good that his teacher suspected he had plagiarized it. 'When she pulled me aside and threatened to call my mother, I couldn't contain my excitement because obviously I wrote the essay myself and my mom knew it. Being accused of plagiarism on my own original work was quite an achievement for me in that moment.' The author is confident in his choice to use Dog Ear Publishing after researching self-publishing options. 'Leslie Hatch was an experienced and insightful editor, and she helped achieve a professional finish,' he said. 'The staff was accessible and knowledgeable. I feel the book is a professionally produced product, and that will hopefully give it an advantage in trying to reach readers.' Prativadi, who is grateful for his family's love and support thus far, has already starting writing a sequel to 'Being and Becoming,' hoping to add to the series with future books.
