BWW Reviews: Jazzy ALEXIS COLE Brings Her Effortless Musicality to Café NoctambuloBWW Reviews: Jazzy ALEXIS COLE Brings Her Effortless Musicality to Café Noctambulo
by Alix Cohen - May 24, 2015

Alexis Cole makes it look easy. Even up-tempo, the performer never appears to be less than relaxed and enjoying what she's doing. Somewhere in the middle of her first number Saturday night at Café Noctambulo (at Pangea Restaurant on 2nd Avenue between 11th and 12th streets) the room seems to exhale. This evening, with her familiar collaborators David Finck (bass) and Kenny Hassler (drums) communicating in musical shorthand, Cole (also on piano) offers jazz, swing, bossa nova, and pop, putting her own subtle stamp on each, never, thankfully, losing melodic path.

by Billie Roe - Mar 12, 2015

When Cole Porter wrote, 'Anything Goes,' he could have easily been referring to New York cabaret circa the 2000-sies. One of the joys of attending and reviewing cabaret shows in the Big Apple these days is that every performing style, show theme, cultural perspective, political point of view, race, gender, and sexual preference is represented on a stage. Some cabaret purists may not agree, but the genre seems to have no boundaries in terms of what is acceptable and what is not. And as long as a show is entertaining, who cares about boundaries and strict definitions of what works in the art form? Here are reviews of three recent shows from Barbara Malley, Robin Kradles, and Donna Hayes that reflect the delicious diversity that is cabaret. (more...)

The Lord's Children Release RUPTURE OF RAPTUREThe Lord's Children Release RUPTURE OF RAPTURE
by BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2015

The Lord's Children announce the publication of their latest book, 'Rupture of Rapture' in their continuing efforts to restore the apostolic teachings and traditions to the 21st Century church. The 'Rupture of Rapture' is a bible study book designed to expose rapture, a concept introduced to the church by dispensational theology and to the world at large via popular books and movies. 'Rapture is deceiving millions as a consequence of bad theology and the impeccable marketing of the concept through popular books and movies,' according to author and bible teacher Michael Bollenbach. 'Dispensational Theology eventually became a mainstream teaching of many congregations and does much harm to Christians reared under it,' says Bollenbach, 'by substituting rapture rather than Christ and the Resurrection as the blessed hope of those who believe.' Dispensational theology came to the United States around 1830 through the Plymouth Brethren movement and John Nelson Darby, James H. Brookes and C.I Scofield who authored the Scofield Reference Bible. According to Bollenbach, 'Dispensationalism turned the Christian world sideways with its departure from the apostolic teachings on faith, grace and hope when when it infused bad theology into Scripture and dislodges and replaces the First Resurrection with rapture.' The 'Rupture of Rapture' examines the God-breathed language of Scripture to demonstrate rapture has no place in biblical Christian theology. Bollenbach concludes by saying, 'Judgment is the inevitable result when Hollywood rather than Scripture become the foundation for beliefs and that consequence is unacceptable to The Lord's Children.' The book specifically examines key words like rapture, caught up, coming and resurrection; phrases like blessed hope, thief in the Night and Day of the Lord; and passages of Scripture like First Thessalonians, First Corinthians 15 and the book of Revelation with particular attention given to the the warning messages of Jesus to the seven assemblies or churches, the Seven Seals of the Scroll, Wrath of God, Wrath of Satan, Wrath of the Lamb and others using only the bible and a concordance. This process sorts out fiction from fact, apostasy from truth and man-made theologies from God breathed revelation. The book, as the title suggests, claims to debunk rapture and restore the historical teaching of the Blessed Hope of believers to be the Second Coming of Christ Jesus to resurrect and change the dead and the living to immortal life. 'Scripture is replete with the command for believers to be ready and to prepare themselves for the Second Coming of Christ,' says Bollenbach, 'but rapture rather ill-prepares them for such eventuality by teaching they are whisked away to heaven prior to the one and only return of Messiah Jesus.' Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with rapture theology, this is a must read for any serious student of eschatology due to its in-depth exegete of Scripture. The book is available exclusively through Amazon-Kindle. The Lord's Children is a non-denominational, home bible assembly anchored in the historic and apostolic Christian theology of Salvation by grace through faith in Messiah Jesus, His crucifixion and bodily resurrection from the dead after three full days and nights in the grave and His bodily ascension to the right hand of God the Father in heaven. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all regenerate believers and leads them into obedience to God and good works as the fruit of salvation. We advocate the New Covenant model of fellowship and discipleship in the homes of believers as taught in Scripture. You may visit our org via our The Lord's Children website. (more...)

BWW Reviews: With His Intimate Frank Sinatra Tribute Show at the Metropolitan Room, RICHARD MALAVET Raises His Vocal GameBWW Reviews: With His Intimate Frank Sinatra Tribute Show at the Metropolitan Room, RICHARD MALAVET Raises His Vocal Game
by John Hoglund - Jul 19, 2015

Near the end of his exceptional new show, Very Good Years: The Intimate Sinatra at the Metropolitan Room, Richard Malavet recalls famed radio personality William B. Williams who once said: "Frank Sinatra is the most imitated, most listened to, most recognized voice of the 20th century." Williams did not exaggerate. Consequently, in this centennial year of Sinatra's birth, there will be many observations of the man known as "The Voice." For his tribute to Sinatra, Malavet did his homework. In this meticulously researched, respectful homage, he turns his talents to the more personalized aspects of the pop star's recording years, from 1939-1968, when musically, Sinatra became synonymous with songs of heartache and loneliness.

In particular, Gupta captures the everyday realities of life in India – its nearly surreal collisions between the inescapably earthy and the ineffably divine, between the current of masses and the path of private days - through works of art that address dichotomies between traditional values and the impact of globalization.

In Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which will mark the Wilma's 11th production of a work by Tom Stoppard, minor characters take center stage as they journey on a boat taking Prince Hamlet to England with players from the royal court. As these characters unknowingly sail to a fate Shakespeare has already scripted for them, arguments of free will and determinism abound, all set to the constant travel game of flipping coins. In this battle of wits, Stoppard's characteristic wordplay and case of mistaken identities create a spectacle that's philosophical, clownish, and complete with a pirate-ambush. (more...)

New Larry Laswell Releases Naval Tribute Novel VOWS TO THE FALLENNew Larry Laswell Releases Naval Tribute Novel VOWS TO THE FALLEN
by BWW News Desk - Apr 2, 2015

'The book is a tribute to the destroyer sailors, especially those who fought in the Pacific in World War II,' said Laswell. 'I thought that August 15th would be a fitting date to release it.' Laswell wanted to honor the tremendous heroism of destroyer sailors who became a major 'point of the spear' and suffered most of the hardships in WWII following the attack on Pearl Harbor. Laswell's first novel, 'The Marathon Watch,' is a military book set during the Vietnam War, which follows a courageous naval captain and his crew aboard the USS Farnley, one of the oldest U.S. naval destroyers. His second novel, 'Vows to the Fallen,' set in the South Pacific during World War II, follows the main character, Captain O'Toole, but serves as a prequel to The Marathon Watch. In Vows to the Fallen, O'Toole is a young lieutenant when the carnage of his first battle traumatized him, and must learn to handle the challenging role as leader, and deal with the reality of war: command decisions have consequences for his men. Last year, Laswell donated 50 percent of his book sales for his first novel, 'The Marathon Watch' to the USS KIDD (DD-661) Veterans Memorial Museum in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was here that Laswell conducted some of his research on World War II destroyers for Vows to the Fallen. 'It was sort of a journey home to me, and the thing that surprised me is that I served on a WWII-class destroyer that had undergone modernization, and the differences were Night and Day,' Laswell said. 'They were two entirely different ships, even though they were the same class destroyer.' Laswell will release the first chapter of 'Vows to the Fallen' in May, with a pre-release version of the book available for review by book bloggers, especially those specializing in military, action or adventure books. Laswell also plans to conduct a book tour in July leading up to the book launch in August. He invites fans and readers to read and comment on his blog posts, which include military topics of conversation, his real-life sea stories about his life in the Navy, and the back story to 'Vows to the Fallen.' Reviewers interested in previewing an advanced copy of 'Vows to the Fallen' should contact Laswell via his website, www.larrylaswell.com. About Larry Laswell: Larry served in the US Navy eight years. In navy parlance, he was a mustang, someone who rose from the enlisted ranks to receive an officer's commission. While in the navy, he served as Main Engines officer aboard the USS Intrepid CV-11, and as Submarine Warfare Officer aboard the USS William M Wood DD-715. Now retired, he fills his spare time with woodworking and furniture design. He continues to work on 'The Marathon Watch' series, an upcoming Science Fiction series, and an anthology of over eighty humorous sea stories.
