BWW Review: HELEN LAWRENCE - A New Approach to Noir Film
by Olga El - Oct 26, 2015

Helen Lawrence is a noir, neo-classic complete with blonde femme fatales, men on the run, corrupt cops, seedy murders, street-smart sex workers, witty jargon and a consistent flow of humor. Post WWII-era Vancouver is projected in grayscale on a screen that mildly obscures the onstage actors basking in the light of the moody blue screen behind them. (more...)

BWW Review: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL With the Quietly Dazzling Amanda McBroom at Feinstein's/54 Below
by Alix Cohen - Oct 2, 2015

Writer/vocalist Amanda McBroom is something of a wonder. The artist manages to be both lyrical and plain spoken, urbane and universal, polished and genuine, vulnerable and gutsy. Her sharply etched songs illuminate our hearts and minds like artful x-ray. Performance is intimate. McBroom's current show at Feinstein's/54 Below, Up Close and Personal, treats us to material exhumed in an attempt to apply feng shui to her music studio; some rarely heard, a few with the ink barely dry, and a familiar anthem. (more...)

Robert Dunn Releases MOTORMAN
by BWW News Desk - May 23, 2016

The author, Robert Dunn, has released a new book, 'MOTORMAN,' on the independent horror publisher, Necro Publications, Bedlam Press & Weird West Books. It is a chrome plated, fuel injected horror that pulls the veil from the dark Ozarks, a world of madness, violence, mysterious visitors, and V8 powered monsters looking for love. Referred to as both imaginative and daring he takes on familiar tropes and some extremely hard subject matter, and manages to do so in a way that made it his. He has crafted a unique and original creation that is Just as Well executed and entertaining as any that have come before it. Robert E. Dunn grew up in the Missouri Ozarks reading everything he could get his hands on. After college, a course of study that included philosophy, religion, theater, and film/TV communications left him qualified only to be a televangelist. When that didn't work out he turned to writing horror and fantasy fiction. He lives in Kansas City with three daughters, a young grandson, and an old dog. He tweets sometimes as @WritingDead but makes no promises how interesting those little posts will be. 'MOTORMAN' by Robert Dunn is now available in Hardcover, Trade Paperback, and eBook.

BWW Review: A.D. Players' LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL Is the Theatrical Equivalent to Curling Up With a Good Book
by Natalie de la Garza - Jun 24, 2016

LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL is quite the curiosity -- a musical that isn't particularly enhanced or defined by its music. But though the music may be mostly forgettable, the voices in the A.D. Players' production are not. Neither are the performances. It is the cast that ultimately elevates this admittedly simplistic but feel-good show to one of the must-sees of the summer. (more...)

BWW Review: Nashville Ballet's 2016 ATTITUDE Series
by Jeffrey Ellis - Feb 13, 2016

Without doubt, excessive exaggeration or hyperbole, Nashville is a veritable 'city of dreams,' a place where creativity thrives and collaboration is a way of life. Perhaps in no other way is this synergy expressed more artfully than in Nashville Ballet's Attitude series - playing through Valentine's Day at TPAC's James K. Polk Theatre - which captures the very essence of Music City, encapsulating it in the music of local songwriters and then translating it for an audience via the ephemeral nature of dance. (more...)

BWW Review: National Tour of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY Bows Gracefully at the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Dec 14, 2015

The Bridges of Madison County was a hit film in 1995 for Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. The 2014 Broadway musical version with a gorgeous operatic score by Jason Robert Brown and stellar book by Marsha Norman is now playing at the Ahmanson downtown through January 17. When you look closely, there's so much to praise that it makes no sense whatsoever that the show closed early on Broadway and won only one Tony for Brown's music. It should have played on and on and walked away with a slew of awards. (more...)

ROWDY by Chris Madsen Wins Clemens Medal
by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2015

Author Chris Madsen has added the Clemens Medal to a long list of awards for his debut title, 'Rowdy,' a true story of a 1916 yacht and the people who graced its decks over several decades including members of New York society, politicians, and the rich and famous. The yacht was commissioned to Holland Sackett Duell in 1916 and Madsen was able to locate his daughter, Hanny Pierson, who at 93 years of age, flew from the East Coast to the West Coast to board the yacht following a six-year restoration by Madsen. From Hanny, her many descendants, and years of research at libraries, museums, historical societies, Supreme Court cases, newspaper archives, and yacht club records, Madsen was able to piece together an extraordinary story of the family and the yacht. 'The family's forefathers were amongst the first pilgrims that arrived at Plymouth,' says Madsen. 'And Holland's grandfather was instrumental in the formation in the Republican Party giving powerful speeches to Congress for the abolition of slavery, and in support of the Civil War. Holland was himself a highly decorated World War I hero and powerful attorney, New York Senator, businessman and highly respected sailor.' 'This isn't a book I would ordinarily read,' says Ron Fritsch, AiA director and reviewer for the Clemens award program. 'But once I started reading 'Rowdy', I could not put it down. It is a compelling story. The book is also beautifully produced and makes a wonderful coffee table book. The author has clearly invested a considerable sum on editing as the quality of the work is impeccable. 'Rowdy' is a deserving recipient of the Clemens Medal.' 'Rowdy' is a true life colorful 1920's historical biography full of adventure, love stories and scandals, and becomes the first book to be awarded the Clemens Medal. An e-version of 'Rowdy' is in production. The hard cover complete with accented gold leaf stamping, blind deboss and a woven burgundy book mark ribbon reflects the story within and is available at all major online retailers including About the Clemens Award Program The Clemens Medal is awarded to an author for a book of outstanding literary quality and design. The three elements considered for this award include: - literary quality of work - the cover design and to a lesser extent, interior design - standard of editing Criteria The award is open to all independent (self-published) authors, and authors published by a small or academic press. 1. Prerequisite The nominated title must have won an award - gold, silver or bronze - from one of the award programs recognized for their Honoring Excellence award. 2. Literary Quality The following elements will be considered when assessing the literary quality of the nominated title. Note: not all of these elements will apply to every genre. Plot: is the story well-constructed, is author in control of plot and making wise decisions, do events happen within the limits of the theme and genre, is final resolution credible, and does it honor the story. Style: is the style appropriate to the theme, genre, subject matter, is the dialogue genuine and does it work effectively with the narrative, author's use of literary techniques and contentions, observance of fundamental rules such as Point Of View, accuracy of any factual material, use of language to create atmosphere, settings, characters, actions etc. Characterization: are characters believable, well-developed, do they interact in a convincing way, is their behavior consistent with their biography and consistent throughout the story, are they revealed to the reader in an effective way through action, inner dialogue, thoughts, reactions and responses to other characters. 3. Design 3.1 Cover Design Like story and writing style, design is quite subjective. Covers also need to respond to the elements that are relevant to a particular genre. We will be considering the following aspects of cover design: - a well written, compelling back cover copy (or description for eBook) - a custom, polished, professional design (no templates) - the genre or story is evident in the design 3.2 Interior Design With regard to interior design (print version only), we are not looking for elaborate design when simplicity works Just as Well. The nominated title will pass this criterion if: - the print is positioned sensibly on the page - the page numbering starts at chapter one - includes a copyright page with relevant content - includes a title page(s) 4. Editing The work must be edited to a very high professional standard. We accept that despite endless edits, rewrites and proofreading that some errors do slip through, and this happens with all books not just self-published books. However, such errors should be minor and limited. About the Clemens Medal The Clemens Medal is in honor of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain who started his own publishing company (Charles L. Webster & Company) in 1885 to self-publish his books. The Clemens Medal recognizes non mainstream authors ie self-published or authors published by a small or academic press who have published a book of outstanding literary quality and design. About The Association of Independent Authors The Association of Independent Authors (AiA) is the peak body representing, advancing, promoting and supporting independent (self-published) authors globally. Its membership spans six continents with directors based in the USA, UK, Asia, Australia and South Africa. The AiA published a comprehensive guide to self-publishing with 80+ articles from experts in their field. Self-Publishing. Publish Your Book and Avoid the Pitfalls with Advice from Leading Experts and Experienced Authors is available exclusively in the Kindle Store. (more...)

BWW Review: Nautilus Music-Theater Reinvents the World's Longest Running Musical THE FANTASTICKS with Atypical Casting and an Intimate Staging
by Jill Schafer - Apr 11, 2016

It may be spring (almost) outside, but inside Nautilus Music-Theater's tiny studio space in Lowertown St. Paul, it's most definitely September. The kind of September 'where grass is green and grain is yellow,' and 'no one weeps except the willow.' A lovely hopeful youthful September that slowly fades into a wiser, darker, and nostalgic December. While Nautilus is primarily dedicated to developing new works of music-theater, with their newest full production, they are presenting a new take on the longest running musical in the world. 56 years ago, THE FANTASTICKS was just the kind of piece that Nautilus would have developed, supported, and produced - an inventive piece of music-theater storytelling that pushes the envelope of what the genre can do. While that glow of newness and inventiveness has somewhat faded over the years, Nautilus is bringing it back in a new way with age-conscious and gender-conscious casting, and by presenting the piece as it originally was - in an intimate small-scale setting that allows the simple beauty and humor of the piece to shine. With limited seating and only 12 performances, make plans soon for this rare opportunity to see this classic musical performed by some of the Twin Cities best theater artists up close and personal.
