BWW Review: Lopsided Tone in Farcical MY MAN GODFREY at Theatre Schmeater
by Amelia Reynolds - Feb 3, 2017

Something's wrong when a tertiary character with no name upstages your main character. Sometimes it can make a production more memorable, but in Theatre Schmeater's current production of 'My Man Godfrey', the nameless mediator embraced the melodrama of the production and went over the top deliciously. This person, Danny Herter, set the bar very high for the level of pomp and circumstance that some of the flighty aristocrats just did not match. Granted, the bulk of the cast did a good job making the characters into caricatures--Sarah Karnes' whiney Irene Bullock; Lantz Wagner as the mooching eccentric, Carlo; and Teri Lazzara's ditzy Angelica Bullock, to name a few (more on that later)--but I wish director Doug Staley pointed to Danny Herter, with his Martin Short as the Mad Hatter voice, and encouraged the less flamboyant members of the cast to peacock a bit more in this tale of scatterbrained socialites.

BORDER RUN & OTHER STORIES by Jennifer Leeper is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2017

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, today announced the paperback and eBook release of the short fiction collection 'Border Run & Other Stories' by Kansas City, Missouri author Jennifer Leeper. Author of the novel, 'Padre: The Narrowing Path,' Leeper is an award-winning fiction writer whose short fiction is included in several anthologies and publications such as 'Independent Ink Magazine,' 'Notes Magazine,' 'The Stone Hobo,' 'Poiesis,' 'Every Day Fiction,' 'Aphelion Webzine,' 'Heater Magazine,' 'Cowboy Jamboree,' 'The New Engagement,' and 'The Liguorian.' Sit back and savor this mesmerizing collection of short fiction set in multiple eras and locales. Two sisters hike a mountainside in South Korea, ascending to another level of sibling intimacy as they descend. A weary detective weathers a mid-life crisis of faith in everything that is familiar and known - including his own integrity as a man of the law. A dying grandmother tasks her grandson with distributing her massive collection of shoes, with the caveat that each pair must be matched to a suitable new owner. These fourteen stories provide tantalizing glimpses of death and its impact on those left behind, the tedious grind of day-to-day living and the promise of escape through the magical and supernatural. Though the characters in each story are encapsulated by their own unique worldview, they are a composite reflection of the overarching experience of life lived, in all times and places. Ask for 'Border Run & Other Stories' at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other online bookstores.

Alex Bernstein Releases Memoir, PIRKNIB
by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

In his new memoir 'Plrknib' (www.amazon.com/Plrknib/dp/B01N3RD9E2) Alex Bernstein takes the I'm with the Band notion from 'Almost Famous' and flips it into I'm with the Comics. At 16, Bernstein was the youngest regular at Cincinnati's legendary comedy club, d.w. eye, desperately trying to balance high school with writing and performing at night. As the pressure to keep up with the older comics grew, he looked for something - some edge - to help him compete. And then he found one: Plrknib - the perfect joke. But using the joke came with a terrible, terrible price. Set against the bohemian, downtown comedy boom of the early '80s, 'Plrknib' is a breezy, bittersweet, and compelling story about love, friendship, and finding your own punchlines. Early reviews say: 'Hysterical, edge-of-your-seat drama.' 'The Power of Jokes permeates this book...in a way rarely seen in fiction.' 'I felt as though I was on stage with him 30 years ago.' About the Book: 'Plrknib' is published by Prom on Mars and is available for sale at Amazon and other online retailers, as well as to order from most bookstores. The paperback (ISBN 978-0-9913135-4-9) retails for U.S. $6.99. The ebook (ISBN 978-0-9913135-3-2) retails for U.S. $1.99. Book website: www.plrknib.com Publisher website: www.promonmars.com About the Author: Alex Bernstein is a Pushcart Prize nominated writer and the author of 'Miserable Holiday Stories'. His work appears at McSweeney's, NewPopLit, The Big Jewel, Litro, The Rumpus, MonkeyBicycle, Corvus, BluePrintReview, Yankee Pot Roast, Swink, Hobo Pancakes, Gi60, The Legendary, Back Hair Advocate, and PopImage, among others.
