BWW Review: NEWSIES Brings Charm, Remarkable Talent to Dr. Phillips CenterBWW Review: NEWSIES Brings Charm, Remarkable Talent to Dr. Phillips Center
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 29, 2015

Admittedly, I am not in the target demographic for Disney's musical NEWSIES, running through February 1st at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This musical, which concluded its two-and-a-half year Broadway run last fall, has inspired a legion of young, female fans who have dubbed themselves 'Fansies.' So while I might not be who the show is normally marketed towards, I left the Walt Disney Theatre on Opening Night completely infected by the optimism, athleticism, and heart of this movie-musical adaptation. Though far from being without fault, the score (which won a Tony for composer Alan Menken and lyricist Jack Feldman), the script (by Tony-winner Harvey Fierstein), and the immense talent of the young ensemble made this a exceptionally enjoyable evening of entertainment.

BWW Reviews: Variations on a Theme - Three Musicals, THE COLOR PURPLE, CALVIN BERGER, and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, All Speak to Beauty and Self-WorthBWW Reviews: Variations on a Theme - Three Musicals, THE COLOR PURPLE, CALVIN BERGER, and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, All Speak to Beauty and Self-Worth
by Jill Schafer - Jan 27, 2015

At first glance, the musicals THE COLOR PURPLE, CALVIN BERGER, and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES may not seem to have much in common. The settings couldn't be more different - the rural South in the early 20th century, a modern day high school, and a drag club in 1970s France. But since I happened to see them all on the same weekend, I couldn't help but draw parallels between them. All three musicals all speak to themes of beauty, identity, self-worth, and having the courage to be who you really are, despite what the world is telling you. In THE COLOR PURPLE, a young, poor, black woman is told that she's ugly and worthless, but after a lifelong journey she arrives at a place of strength and self-love. CALVIN BERGER sets the classic play Cyrano de Bergerac in a modern high school, where a young man feels that his large nose prevents him from getting what he wants in life and chooses to hide behind the handsome popular guy, both of whom eventually learn it's better to be loved for who you are. Finally, in LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, a middle aged man who feels more comfortable dressed as a woman is asked by his own son to hide who he is, but confidently declares 'I am who I am!' Another thing these three musicals have in common is that they can all currently be seen on Twin Cities stages featuring talented local casts. Read on for more details on each, pick one that suits your fancy, and go see a local musical that just may inspire you to love you you really are! (more...)

Marquis Publishing Releases Notorious Northern California Murder Scenes Revisited in New PublicationMarquis Publishing Releases Notorious Northern California Murder Scenes Revisited in New Publication
by BWW News Desk - Jan 24, 2015

California-based Marquis Publications (a division of the Marquis Gallery) newest release 'The Topography of Evil: Notorious Northern California Murder Sites' is author and photographer Marques Vickers return to 26 crime scenes and the shocking and tragic nature behind each. Following their initial commission, some of the higher profiled kidnappings and homicides captured significant national attention. The majority of the 26 profiles have remained regionally publicized and in many cases, forgotten or unsolved. Northern California has been the residence for many notorious killers including the Zodiac, Ted 'Unabomber' Kaczynski, Dan White, Jim Jones, Richard Allen Davis and Scott Peterson. Other homicidal personalities were renamed with monikers including The Children of Thunder, The Vampire of Sacramento, Zebra Killers and the Death House Landlady. The region has also buried numerous high profile victims including George Moscone, Huey P. Newton, Harvey Milk, Oscar Grant III, Polly Klaas, Lacy Peterson, Chauncey Bailey and 412 unclaimed bodies from the People's Temple Massacre in Jonestown, Guyana. Vickers' edition is segmented into nine categories of crime and murder: assassinations, abductions, historical legacies, premeditated, reckless homicides, unsolved, rampage and serial killers. The author raises important questions within his case summaries about the varying roles that media, racial profiling, law enforcement and local politics have influenced some of the more celebrated cases. Author Vickers' own introduction to the consequences of murder began with the December 20, 1968 killings of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen by the Zodiac killer on an isolated stretch of Lake Herman Road near the Vallejo and Benicia, California boarder. The book reveals a glimpse into a darker side of humanity and escorts readers into the physical localities where evil was perpetrated. 'The Topography of Evil: Notorious Northern California Murder Sites' is available in ebook and paperback versions through Amazon and Barnes and Noble Nook Stores. California-based Marquis Publishing, a division of Marquis Gallery specializes in electronic and paperback book editions distributed through major online sales websites and InsiderSeriesBooks.com. Vickers is the author of numerous books on fine arts, the regional auction industry, crime, southern France and photo image editions. (more...)
