This is American Horror Story after all!  (more...)

BWW Review: Theatre Memphis Plays 'Cats and Mouse' With WAIT UNTIL DARK
by Joseph Baker - Oct 19, 2015

The set alone is testament as to why Theatre Memphis invariably is recognized during awards season for its designers -- two dominant windows admitting shifts in light as darkness falls, steps descending into a blind woman's apartment (steps on which menacing characters will align themselves as they focus on their sightless victim), a refrigerator that will become a hiding place, a source of danger, and a shield of protection. Frederick Knott's chiller (adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and suspensefully helmed by Director Tracey Zerwig Ford) is a tense and understated October alternative to the bucket of blood drenching poor CARRIE just across town at Circuit Playhouse.

Zimmerli Art Museum to Display Woodcut Prints from Helen Hyde, Bertha Lum
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2016

New Brunswick, NJ – The historic re-establishment of trade between Japan and Western nations in 1853 also greatly influenced art and culture throughout the second half of the 19th century. Exhibitions at museums and world's fairs introduced Asian artists and traditions in North America and Europe, where artists enthusiastically embraced subjects, compositions, and materials they rarely – if ever – had seen before. The Zimmerli Art Museum's new exhibition “Infinite Opportunities Offered in Color”:  Prints by Helen Hyde and Bertha Lum, on view through July 31, features 35 works by two American artists who, in turn, disseminated these artistic developments to audiences back home. Both artists spent considerable time living abroad in Asia and recognized the unique artistic possibilities for representing traditional aspects of life in an area of the world that was rapidly modernizing. They mastered complex color printing techniques and depicted aspects of Japanese and Chinese culture that essentially had been absent in the West. Because these artists generally are presented in survey exhibitions, this is a rare opportunity to view a significant group of works by either artist.“Infinite Opportunities Offered in Color” also complements other works on view from the Zimmerli's permanent collection, including examples of the Japonisme movement and a gallery that commemorates Rutgers' historic relationship with Japan.   (more...)

Leonard Seet to Release MAGNOLIAS IN PARADISE, Fall 2016
by BWW News Desk - Feb 29, 2016

Excelsior Publishing will be releasing Leonard Seet's latest novel 'Magnolias in Paradise' in Fall 2016. Ernst arrives at the Paradise train station with fifty-thousand dollars to ransom his sweetheart, and while looking among the crowd for the young man with a magnolia, a beggar seizes his bag of cash and escapes through the revolving door. Chasing after the rascal, he slams into his contacthis girlfriend's lover in town. Now, he must beat his love-rival to the money and rescue her before the deadline. 'Magnolias in Paradise' (252 pp., tpb, $14.95) is a 96,000-word crime novel and the first in a potential series. As in Larry Brown's 'Father and Son,' good confronts evil in a southern town. And as in Joe R. Lansdale's 'Cold in July,' an ordinary man gets sucked into a conspiracy, with psychopaths terrorizing a small town and FBI agents going after a corrupt sheriff. In the end, the man must take the law into his hands. But in this case, ending in tragedy. Here, he combined Will Christopher Baer's surreal settings and mentally unstable villains, with Brian Evenson's literary minimalism and heroes cursing their knowledge. 'Leonard Seet brings his intelligence and wit and gifts as a writer to a broader audience in 'Magnolias in Paradise' in a gritty, realistic novel. He uses a narrative style which brings... the perspective of the players in this grim game of hide-and-seek reminiscent of the narrative technique of As I Lay Dying and Charming Billy... Mainstream audiences will appreciate the intelligence of the narrative of this book in this genre, which is so often short-changed by lesser lights just out to make a buck. Seet has reinvented himself as a writer in his evolution from his deeply rich, engaging and inspirational books about spirituality to the rough ride on the mean streets of Magnolias in Paradise... definitely be engaged by this novel.' - David Lentz, author, Bloomsday: the Bostoniad Leonard Seet is the author of the novel 'Meditation On Space-Time' and the non-fiction 'The Spiritual Life.' His articles and short fiction have appeared in the Quarterly Literary Review Singapore, Banana Writers and Pilcrow & Dagger. He learned the art of writing from Brando Skyhorse and Tim Johnston through George Washington University's Jennie McKean Moore Fiction Workshop, which is by application. 'Magnolias in Paradise' will be available in most brick-and-mortar and online bookstores. (more...)
