Halo Publishing International Releases 'The Biggest Little Brother'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2016

An only child having to adjust to a new baby is a familiar tale; however, what happens when a new, older, brother comes into the family? Sowa is the oldest sibling and is used to helping his Mom and Dad and his baby sister Naiya. But when his big brother, Hindo, moves from Sierra Leone to live with them in Atlanta he suddenly realizes that he isn't the oldest anymore. First time children's author Aminata Jalloh (http://halopublishing.com/4i-l/aminata-jalloh.html), knows a little bit about how that feels having experienced a similar situation in her young life. 'As I looked at children's literature for a story that would examine the changes siblings face when an immigrant relative moves in, I realized there wasn't anything Out There that really addresses those challenges,' said Aminata Jalloh. 'I wanted to create a story that lovingly addresses some of the differences immigrant families face while still offering a book children would want to read.' 'The Biggest Little Brother' is exactly that; offering a main character in Sowa that wants to be helpful and is so excited to welcome this new member of the family. His desire to be a sibling leader and teacher is momentarily shaken when he realizes that he is no longer the big brother in the family. 'In writing this book my desire was to portray a 'non-traditional' family structure in a way that will resonate with any young child,' said Jalloh. 'I also hope to provide reading material that reflects the changing faces and experiences of the American family. 'I just love this story. Aminata has created characters that are honest and easy to relate with. I look forward to more stories with this same family.' While 'The Biggest Little Brother' is her first book, Jalloh is currently writing at least two more children's stories that will continue the saga of Sowa and his siblings. In the meantime, 'The Biggest Little Brother,' is now available from Amazon for $15.95 Buy at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Biggest-Little-Brother-Aminata-Jalloh/dp/1612444679/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473701381&sr=8-1&keywords=Aminata+Jalloh About Aminata Jalloh: Aminata Jalloh lives in Sierra Leone and is an education specialist in the international development field, where she provides technical expertise in the design of literacy curriculums and programs. Aminata's book The Biggest Little Brother. is a children's book focusing on sibling relationships and family change of a West African immigrant family.

BWW Review: WET's REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. Hits Hard but Not Always Coherently
by Jay Irwin - Sep 26, 2016

I've never been a fan of performance art as it tends to lose its message amidst the blur of being odd. I mean I'll never forget the piece I saw where a woman gave birth to herself only to be followed by a group of men beating her with pillows. Having said that, Washington Ensemble Theatre's current production of Alice Birch's play "Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again." is not completely performance art but there were a few moments where the outrageousness of the performance got in the way of the message. But we'll get to that in a minute. (more...)

BWW Recap: M is for MURDER on AMERICAN HORROR STORY

The play is currently onstage through October 2, 2016,.at the Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre in downtown Culver City, directed by Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Neel Keller.

And part of the reason is her 2013 farce, THE TAMING, which riffs loosely off Shakespeare's famously problematic sex comedy, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW. (more...)

BWW Blog: Arielle Jacobs - Flying High, Down Under: Part 7: The First Time is the Hardest
by Guest Blogger: Arielle Jacobs - Sep 16, 2016

It's days like this that I wish someone would just tell me what to do. Tell me what the rules are. Or guidelines. Whatever they're called. As I sit here, bundled up in my comfy clothes and steaming my face, I sit in the knowledge that I'm battling a cold. My neck aches and my ears have been clogged for days. My nose is leaking BEHIND my face. Not out the front, but down back my throat.  The kind of drip down your throat that is just annoying and makes you feel like you've got a sore throat in the morning, but then you drink water and realize it's just the constant drip of liquid making your throat slowly raw.

BWW Review: Theresa Kloos' REASONS TO BE UNSUCCESSFUL at The Metropolitan Room Succeeds with Quirky Comedy and Charm
by Amy Oestreicher - Sep 14, 2016

In her tour de force, one-woman show REASONS TO BE UNSUCCESSFUL at the Metropolitan Room on September 2, comedian Theresa Kloos used her endearingly quirky sense of humor to bring the audience closer than we ever could have hoped for, in a night of comic showtunes, sassy pop songs, and spunky rock beats. UNSUCCESSFUL debuted in June as a follow-up to her first show, REASONS TO BE UNPRETTY, which was her first 'exploration of the trials and tribulations of a funny, albeit awkward girl growing up in Cleveland.' This time around, Kloos is back with lessons learned and a powerful message to share--- infused with her humor, of course. (more...)

BWW Review: Thrilling BEOWULF: A THOUSAND YEARS OF BAGGAGE
by Andria Tieman - Sep 13, 2016

The thought of seeing a dramatic version of the epic poem Beowulf may make many people cringingly remember the sweaty days of undergrad and trying to parse meaning out of Olde English while being lorded over by a condescending professor and at least one overly enthusiastic classmate who won't shut up about it. Or maybe that's just me. The good news is that Tritnity Rep's production of BEOWULF: A THOUSAND YEARS OF BAGGAGE is not only hilarious, but 100% accessible even to those who have never read, and maybe don't want to read, the book.  This play is half academic lecture--but funny, and half manic musical fever dream, which come together beautifully to create a spectacle of light and sound.  Punctuated by dramatic, towering sets and scowling warrior maidens, it feels like Mad Max meets Bladerunner set in a wholly new dystopia.  This is a play that is fully immersive and unlike anything else Out There.  It's so exciting to know the basic plot of a story, but still be surprised with what comes next, and this production is unexpected and unique in the best way.
