Tony Taylor Launches New Science Fiction Novel Tony Taylor Launches New Science Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - May 29, 2015

At a mountaintop observatory in Southern California, spacecraft navigator Harris Mitchel and astronomer Diana Muse-Jones discover a dangerous asteroid which may hit the earth within two decades. As the asteroid tumbles through space towards an uncertain impact, Harris and Diana fight bitterly over how to announce their discovery. When Harris goes public to a skeptical world-at the cost of his and Diana's careers-he sends their already turbulent relationship into a blaze of conflicting passions. As his notoriety builds, a fanatical preacher and his unhinged followers stalk him while an obnoxious radio personality provides disruptive help. Harris becomes an unwilling Pied Piper for his own clueless followers hungry for belief and eager for guidance into an uncertain and tumultuous future. In this science fiction drama, the characters battle each other in contests of Damn your world view! against a background of hard science, religion, romance, metaphysical speculation, and the forces of nature versus human passions and dreams. Meanwhile an asteroid hurtles through the solar system and global salvation or disaster hangs in the balance. Praise for "The Darkest Side of Saturn": "This extraordinarily well-crafted and deeply thought-provoking novel ... is nothing short of a science fiction tour de force; a courageous and visionary work that is comparable in thematic power to Walter M. Miller, Jr.'s Hugo Award-winning novel A Canticle for Leibowitz." BlueInk Reviews "A scientific prophecy propels this ominous Armageddon thriller. . . . The psychological basis of this mind-spinning tale is a classic Messiah complex . . . The trip to the final page is filled with bizarre descriptions and poetic madness. . . .Taylor presents a world teetering on the brink of the blackness of nothing and the lightness of life." Foreword Clarion Reviews "A wild ride . . . Mind-boggling at the end." Kirkus Reviews "The Darkest Side of Saturn" is available in both print and eBook formats.

by Pat Cerasaro - Mar 31, 2015

Today we are talking to one of the biggest stars to break out of Broadway and make a major mark on the music scene in recent years thanks to her hit album HUNTER and an ever-expanding series of incredibly impressive viral music videos, the soulful and passionate Morgan James. Discussing the impetus behind many of the selections on HUNTER as well as sharing stories of how the album all came together, James generously details the process in creating her first album of original material while looking ahead to this week's live concert event at the Highline Ballroom which will showcase many of the standouts from the album as well as some special surprises. Furthermore, James opens up about her growing series of music videos covering many classic pop and R&B songs, both vintage and brand new, as well as the worldwide acclaim she has received for them - enough to inspire a recent European tour with innovative music collective Postmodern Jukebox, as matter of fact. Plus, James gives the 411 on her theatre background and Juilliard training while also reflecting on some of her Broadway appearances in musicals such as MOTOWN, GODSPELL, THE ADDAMS FAMILY and WONDERLAND while also commenting on some dream roles she would ideally enjoy pursuing in the future, near and far.

Dance Local: A Case for a Homegrown NUTCRACKERDance Local: A Case for a Homegrown NUTCRACKER
by Frances Steiner - Mar 23, 2015

The Joffrey Ballet recently made waves by announcing their commission of a brand-new, Chicago-inspired production of The Nutcracker. Choreographed by the buzzy Christopher Wheeldon, this new work will celebrate The Joffrey's hometown of Chicago by setting the story at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. While many were excited by the prospect of a new work from this prominent choreographer, others questioned the move. The Joffrey already has a Nutcracker, so what isn't broken?
