BWW Reviews: Scena Theatre's MOLLY Portrays a Leading Light of the Early Dublin Stage
by Andrew White - Aug 27, 2014

Actress Danielle Davy gives us a vivid incarnation of John Millington Synge's muse Molly Allgood, in a performance that is by turns hilarious and deeply moving. The play has been given a fine, deftly-directed trajectory thanks to Scena Theatre's Robert McNamara. The brogue is occasionally thick and of course it helps if you're familiar with the leading lights of the modern Irish stage, but Davy carries you through the evening effortlessly with Mollly's determination and her charm.

Blue Dome Press Releases 'Ideology in Turkish Cinema' by Mustafa Mencütekin
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

Turkish culture has always straddled two worlds, with one eye glancing towards Europe and the West, and the other looking inward, to the East. For decades, the Turkish State deemed 'westernization at all costs' its major objective. This was oftentimes at odds with a culture that has always been a mosaic of liberal and conservative, religious and secular, eastern and western. In his new book, 'Ideology in Turkish Cinema,' Mustafa Mencütekin examines how film has developed within Turkey. Cinema was originally a western phenomenon, and Mencütekin explores the different ways that the medium has both engaged with, and conflicted with, Turkish society. While working within a western discipline, generations of Turkish filmmakers have tried to make it a vessel for the social values of their home country. Mencütekin speculates that to truly explore the specific issues currently vexing Turkish cinema, one has to confront the aesthetic, technological, and ideological assumptions in the 'deeply nationalistic and secular' approach to Turkish cinema and how they engage with the real social values of Turkish society. If one hopes to attain a cinema purified from all kinds of crisis, more democracy is required to create a cinema that is at peace with the past, present, and future of Turkish society. About the author: Mustafa Mencütekin graduated from METU ELT in 1991, and taught in many different institutions before beginning his MA, in English Language and Literature, at Fatih University in 1998. Overwhelmed by the outstanding language of film as a particular genre, he applied and finished a PhD program on cinema at Istanbul University in 2001. He directed, and has been directing, all his academic interests towards comprehending the magical style of cinematic communication. The technical, psychological, sociological and communicative aspects of cinematic language are just some of the wide range of fields he has examined. His background in languages and Literature lays a firm foundation for his further interdisciplinary studies. He is fluent in English and can communicate in German. He has penned and published several articles, in Turkish and English, about the communicative and morphological sides of film and cinema His personal hobbies include playing guitar, studying new cultures, studying the philosophy of visuality, writing poetry, and learning new languages.

Audible Releases John Scalzi's New Audiobook LOCK IN
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

Audible, Inc., the world's largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content, today announced the simultaneous release of two brilliant performances of New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi's new thriller, Lock In.

BWW Interviews: Back to the Exam Books for Mad Cows's THE HISTORY BOYS
by Justin J Sacramone - Aug 24, 2014

As schools are opening their doors and welcoming students back, class at the Mad Cow Theatre Company is also back in session with a production of Alan Bennett's 2005 Tony Winning Play, THE HISTORY BOYS. My review on the production, running through September 7th, will be up early next week. In the meantime, I was able to interview some of the cast members. Instead of your basic interview with straightforward questions, I kept with the spirit of Bennett's scholastic play by passing out the blue books with three open-ended questions about some of the themes from the play. Although these answers will not be graded, I am sure if Irwin took a glance at them he would not be regarding them as "abysmally dull". (more...)
