Fads come and go, and aesthetic poetry is all the rage in town these days, especially among the maidens who have all become groupies of the self-styled poet Reginald Bunthorne - to the dismay of their macho military boyfriends. All but Patience, the virtuous village milkmaid who claims to have never loved anyone. She doesn't care for poetry much either, and, as it turns out, neither does Bunthorne! And while Bunthorne is infatuated with Patience, she falls for her childhood crush Archibald Grosvenor, another famous aesthete who attracts women even faster than Bunthorne. The rigid military men attempt to win back their ladies by comically attempting to be willowy poets, but, when exasperated Bunthorne challenges Grosvenor to give up the current aesthetic craze, he does so willingly - and everything backfires. Being common becomes the new celebrity, and all the ladies choose their old sweethearts, including Patience - proving after all, that every generation has its own temporary insanity!

New Fantasy Book by Cat Bruno is ReleasedNew Fantasy Book by Cat Bruno is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 4, 2016

Midwest Book Review praised Cat Bruno's debut novel, 'The Girl from the North,' as 'Exceptional entertainment with deftly created characters and unexpected plot twists.' Now, a year later, Ms. Bruno continues the story of her strong female protagonist with the second book in the series, 'Daughter of the Wolf.' Slated for a January 2016 national release, 'Daughter of the Wolf' seamlessly crosses genres, with elements of fantasy and romance, which readers of fantasy and young adult literature will find pleasing. For those looking for diversity in fiction and atypical fantasy characters, Ms. Bruno offers an engaging read with uncommon voices. Painted Quill Press proudly offers best-selling author Cat Bruno's Pathway of the Chosen series for purchase, through their website: www.thingsfantastical.com and through Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B019WJUH20 In the ever-increasing world of epic fantasy where George RR Martin's Game of Thrones has captivated readers and viewers, Ms. Bruno presents her own uniquely-crafted world, with a female voice that is rarely seen in such presentations. Falling somewhere in between the Twilight series, with shades of romance and paranormal accents, and Game of Thrones, in scope and depth of characters, the Pathway of the Chosen series could be the next big thing. In the genre of epic fantasy and literature, the author has more room, and hopefully the reader has Patience, to allow characters to come to life slowly and the story to develop once the reader is fully invested. The Girl from the North, which is the first in the series, moves about at its own pace, until the last quarter of the book. By then, Bronwen, the lead protagonist, should be well-understood, although many will question the choices that she makes. When asked about the difference between the first two books in her series, Cat Bruno stated, 'In the first, the heroine in quite innocent, and the writing, setting, and tone are haloed with allusions to light. Yet, nearly all changes as Daughter of the Wolf begins, including a much darker viewpoint, as Bronwen learned much at the end of the first book. For the second book, she leaves the only home that she remembers and travels throughout this vast world, which allowed me space to explore and create diversity in the genre.'

BWW Review: South Coast Repertory Paints Bold Strokes with REDBWW Review: South Coast Repertory Paints Bold Strokes with RED
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 9, 2016

Now on stage in an exquisite new regional production at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through February 21, 2016, John Logan's riveting Tony Award-winning two-character play RED imagines a specific time period in the life of world-renowned abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko (played with superb gusto by Mark Harelik) and his struggles to remain an appreciated, serious artiste at the dawn of pop art, Andy Warhol, and the rise of pretty (and well-funded) 'over mantle' modern art. With the help of a new young assistant (the impressive Paul David Story), Rothko forges ahead with a high-paying commission to produce a series of murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant, which causes much inner turmoil for the artist.

It's clear to me that Everyman Theatre company actor Megan Anderson knows her craft and performs it exceptionally well, given how she brought her character, Raina, to life in playwright Michael Hollinger's 'Under the Skin.' That's because I had to restrain myself, several times, from shouting from my seat that she was an ungrateful, affected, pretentious, New Agey, annoying Millennial (expletive), a particular demographic for which I have a Saudi-Arabian-oil-reserve-size dislike.
