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!

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis Presents a Myriad of Possibilities with CONSTELLATIONS
by Chris Gibson - Jan 30, 2017

Playwright Nick Payne takes an unusual approach to his work, CONSTELLATIONS, crafting a simple story that's made more complex by the way in which he allows it to unfold. It's a interesting and engaging piece of theatre that the less open minded might find a bit frustrating due to the very nature of its construction. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis had put together a fascinating production of this work, which is graced with two excellent performances and sharp direction that fully seeks to explore the world that is created. I found it thoroughly engaging, and I think it's a play that deserves your time and attention. (more...)

CHAMELEONS is Now Available on Amazon.com, Kindle and in Stores
by BWW News Desk - Jan 23, 2017

Chameleons, a newly released novel by Marcus A. Nannini. ChameleonsNovel@aol.com-PO Box 2800, Carefree, AZ 85377. Available at Amazon.com, including Kindle, and elsewhere now. Chameleons' approach to the 'date which will live in infamy' is from the seldom-seen perspective of an Imperial Japanese Navy midget submariner. The author sets forth a strong argument that members of the Imperial Japanese Navy succeeded in melding into the local Japanese population, never to be discovered. In focusing on who, perhaps, is the ultimate 'illegal alien' Marcus Nannini turns our attention to Lieutenant (junior grade) Masaharu Yokoyama. Yokoyama was the most qualified of the five midget submarine commanders who were sent to attack Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. He was charismatic, courageous, focused and lived by the words: 'Vision, Spirit, Patience and Honesty.' Nannini transports the reader from the image of sailors crawling for their lives over the hull of the capsizing U.S.S. Oklahoma, into modern day Oahu, and points in between with seamless transitions as the life of Yokoyama is peeled open for inspection. Nannini uses no fewer than 16 images to bring to life the people and events depicted in this harrowing tale of courage in the face of nearly overwhelming odds. It is a story of courage, questioning moral certainty, duty, honor, and, above all, doing the right thing without regard to potential negative consequences. What they are saying: 'A well-written novel requires an author to master many skills. For me, the most important is to keep the reader so engrossed that he or she finds it hard to take a break. Based on this... Chameleons is such a story.' -Don Westenhaver, Southern California Writers Association. 'Overall, I thought it was a great story. I liked your transitions and use of flashbacks, as well as your approach for the presentation of Chameleons.' -John Bean, EBooks2Go. 'Chapter Fourteen (the Plank Bar) is the best chapter of any book I've ever read.' -David S. Mathias, Rebel Woodworking. Link to Amazon page: https://www.amazon.com/Chameleons-Actual-Events-Commander... ISBN: 0692814353 ISBN 13: 9780692814352 Library of Congress Control Number: 2016920544 (more...)
