BWW Review: INDIAN INK from STC and Pratidhwani Blends History and HeartBWW Review: INDIAN INK from STC and Pratidhwani Blends History and Heart
by Jay Irwin - Aug 24, 2015

When you go to see a Tom Stoppard play such as "Indian Ink", currently playing at Center Theatre from Sound Theatre Company and Pratidhwani, you can expect to be immersed in whatever subject Stoppard has chosen, whether that be Literature, history, math, music or landscape architecture, along with a fascinating interpersonal story with the characters. And while I usually appreciate the interpersonal stories of his plays, his chosen subject of interest is usually lost on me (mostly due to the feeling that you need to take a Masters class in whatever the subject is before you see the play to totally get it). Stoppard's "Indian Ink" is no exception although the love story at its heart certainly outweighed any gaps of historical knowledge I felt. (more...)

Michele Duva Pens EULBAMichele Duva Pens EULBA
by BWW News Desk - Aug 19, 2015

Love can conquer all - sometimes even death. That's the premise behind this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing that blends romance, myth and science. Eulba, a physicist and mathematician exploring theories on the universe, had a unique relationship with her boyfriend, Beloved, another brilliant person. Their romance somehow continues despite his untimely death, and Eulba discovers that science and myth are simply two sides of the same coin, representing the same reality from different points of view. 'Eulba' opens as the couple first meets - Eulba is quickly drawn to the blue-eyed handsome man and slyly signs up for a math tutoring session, only to be quickly found out as the one who's been writing anonymous notes of admiration. Their relationship becomes physical and blooms until Beloved's experimenting with mind-altering substances leads to fateful consequences. She finds that her relationship with Beloved has not, in fact, ended with his death but continues, thanks to mythical forces that rule the cosmos, parallel universes and the elasticity of time. As Eulba begins to believe the myths of the Maya, she decides to enter that world. It will take an act of self-sacrifice for her to make the journey and be reunited with Beloved. Powerful imagery and colorful prose, as well as beautiful verse, set the scene for a story of unbreakable bonds and the wonders of the universe. This is the second novel for Michele Duva, who also wrote 'Waiting for Dawn.' The author has an MBA from San Jose State University, a master's degree in taxation from Golden Gate University and a PhD. in comparative Literature from State University of New York at Binghamton. Duva, who lives in Northern California, has been pursuing a multidisciplinary career working in different professions.

Polly Teale's recent stage version of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre proves that an adaptation can breathe new, unique life into a well-known tale while honoring and maintaining the classic and beloved story.
