Marquis Publishing Releases Notorious Northern California Murder Scenes Revisited in New PublicationMarquis Publishing Releases Notorious Northern California Murder Scenes Revisited in New Publication
by BWW News Desk - Jan 24, 2015

California-based Marquis Publications (a division of the Marquis Gallery) newest release 'The Topography of Evil: Notorious Northern California Murder Sites' is author and photographer Marques Vickers return to 26 crime scenes and the shocking and tragic nature behind each. Following their initial commission, some of the higher profiled kidnappings and homicides captured significant national attention. The majority of the 26 profiles have remained regionally publicized and in many cases, forgotten or unsolved. Northern California has been the residence for many notorious killers including the Zodiac, Ted 'Unabomber' Kaczynski, Dan White, Jim Jones, Richard Allen Davis and Scott Peterson. Other homicidal personalities were renamed with monikers including The Children of Thunder, The Vampire of Sacramento, Zebra Killers and the Death House Landlady. The region has also buried numerous high profile victims including George Moscone, Huey P. Newton, Harvey Milk, Oscar Grant III, Polly Klaas, Lacy Peterson, Chauncey Bailey and 412 unclaimed bodies from the People's Temple Massacre in Jonestown, Guyana. Vickers' edition is segmented into nine categories of crime and murder: assassinations, abductions, historical legacies, premeditated, reckless homicides, unsolved, rampage and serial killers. The author raises important questions within his case summaries about the varying roles that media, racial profiling, law enforcement and local politics have influenced some of the more celebrated cases. Author Vickers' own introduction to the consequences of murder began with the December 20, 1968 killings of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen by the Zodiac killer on an isolated stretch of Lake Herman Road near the Vallejo and Benicia, California boarder. The book reveals a glimpse into a darker side of humanity and escorts readers into the physical localities where evil was perpetrated. 'The Topography of Evil: Notorious Northern California Murder Sites' is available in ebook and paperback versions through Amazon and Barnes and Noble Nook Stores. California-based Marquis Publishing, a division of Marquis Gallery specializes in electronic and paperback book editions distributed through major online sales websites and InsiderSeriesBooks.com. Vickers is the author of numerous books on fine arts, the regional auction industry, crime, southern France and photo image editions. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Imaginary Theatre Company's Delightful BAH! HUMBUG!BWW Reviews: The Imaginary Theatre Company's Delightful BAH! HUMBUG!
by Chris Gibson - Dec 22, 2014

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Imaginary Theatre Company has produced a wonderful musical spoof of Charles Dickens' holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, titled BAH! HUMBUG!. There have been so many different takes on the original story that one would think it's already been played out, but this standard will probably never go out of style. Jack Herrick (book, music and lyrics) does a marvelous job of making it all seem fresh again with a number of catchy little tunes, and a plethora of gags that make use of cultural references that will amuse both children and adults. If you've got a wee one you'd like to introduce to this vintage tale, I definitely recommend that you take the time to see this show. (more...)

BWW Reviews:  Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROLBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Joseph Baker - Dec 12, 2014

As my hand was turning to mincemeat while writing personal notes in Christmas card after Christmas card, I persevered, knowing that at the end of my travails there would be a reward: A much anticipated performance of Theatre Memphis' annual 'gift' to Memphis, Charles Dickens' venerable A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I must admit: I have not attended every performance of that classic since its inception. I have, however, infrequently stopped to hang my wreath at its door; and I've seen some fine 'Ebeneezers' over the years (I recall a former teaching colleague, Tom Ford, offering a tight, clipped interpretation and, of course, one of the best and most frequent of the actors donning those tattered gloves, Memphis acting favorite Barry Fuller). As I wrote card after card, I began to think about all the other interpretations of A CHRISTMAS CAROL that I have encountered through the years - Seymour Hicks; Reginald Owen (in the role MGM intended for an ailing Lionel Barrymore, who had become famous for his radio performance and who would have, no doubt, been superior; a not-all-that-bad consolation prize was his equally tight-fisted 'Mr. Potter' in Frank Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE); Orson Welles (in a Mercury Theatre radio performance); Sir Ralph Richardson (a beautiful audio recording); Alastair Sim (in the early 1950's British film and offering my favorite interpretation of the role; Danny Peary, in his fascinating ALTERNATE OSCARS, selects him as Best Actor for that performance); and, certainly, George C. Scott, in what was considered to be the version to end all versions. (And does anyone recall Jim Backus' 'Mr. Magoo' in a delightful animated musical television special back in the 1960's?)
