BWW Recap: The Circus Brings Murder to GOTHAM; ALADDIN's Iglehart GuestsBWW Recap: The Circus Brings Murder to GOTHAM; ALADDIN's Iglehart Guests
by Jeffrey Walker - Feb 16, 2015

The grip of a bitter, Arctic chill may be gripping much of the country tonight, but the heat is on in Gotham City when the circus comes to town. Tonight, episode 16, “The Blind Fortune Teller,” weaves several tales of family, passion and survival. We may have met the young, homicidal maniac who will grow up to be The Joker – or Jerome may be just a teenager with a creepy laugh. Barbara Kean is trying to reenter Jim Gordon's life but now she has competition from Dr. Thompkins. Fish Mooney continues to show her tenacity even as an underground prisoner and Penguin shakily takes the reins of her club. And young Bruce Wayne has the brass cojones to face the Wayne Enterprises board of directors with allegations of corruption. And as a special bonus, Broadway's Tony Award-winning Genie from ALADDIN James Monroe Inglehart guest stars! (more...)

Zimmerli Art Museum to Display New George Segal Exhibit, 2/14Zimmerli Art Museum to Display New George Segal Exhibit, 2/14
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2015

New Brunswick, NJ – The inside of the artist's studio is seldom seen by the broader public. But the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers offers its audiences this rare opportunity through the exhibition George Segal in Black and White: Photographs by Donald Lokuta, which opens February 14, 2015. The show is accompanied by a catalogue of the same title. Lokuta met Segal in 1984 at the sculptor's studio, located on his family's farm in South Brunswick. The photographer soon returned to shoot a professional portrait, sparking an artistic alliance that would engage him for more than 16 years and result in nearly 15,000 negatives. The first selection of this two-part exhibition, through May 16, considers Segal inside and beyond his studio (with friends, family, and models), as well as the studio itself as subject. The second installment, on view May 23 to July 31, focuses on Segal at work on his iconic figures. The public is invited to Art After Hours: First Tuesdays on March 3 for a curator-led tour of the exhibition, as well as an opportunity to meet Donald Lokuta. The evening also features live music and Slide Jam, as well as the talk “Vision Research: Interactions between Scientists and Artists,” presented by Thomas Papathomas, who is a Rutgers Professor and the Busch Campus Dean. Admission is free. (more...)
