Nan Gurley's stunning performance of Mama Rose is reason enough to see Studio Tenn's 2015-16 season opening production of Gypsy - the legendary backstage musical about the rise to stardom of Gypsy Rose Lee - but there is so much more to be found in director Matt Logan's sumptuously appointed show than her career-crowning portrayal of the near-mythical character.

BWW Interview: Autumn Bodily of FOLLIES at Conejo Players TheatreBWW Interview: Autumn Bodily of FOLLIES at Conejo Players Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Nov 30, 2015

Like many Ventura County performers, Autumn Bodily has a long career in local theater. She started as a teenager in 1986 with Young Artists Ensemble in one of their earliest productions. Autumn made her Conejo Players debut in 1989 in Annie before getting married at 22 and moving around the state. She attended college and grad school, had children, and worked as a company member for the Sierra Repertory Theatre in Sonora. Her next move took her and her family from Northern California to San Diego where she worked for the La Jolla Playhouse doing page-to-stage productions. While there, she worked on many shows that would later progress to Broadway. In 2006, she performed in the musical version of Doctor Zhivago, working with composer Lucy Simon and director Des McAnuff. The show had a brief run this past spring on Broadway but only lasted for 23 performances. Since she returned to the Conejo Valley, she has performed in a variety of community theater productions, including Cabaret (Camarillo Skyway Playhouse) as Fraulein Kost and Damn Yankees (Conejo Players) as Gloria Thorpe. Autumn plays the role of Sally Durant Plummer in the Conejo Players Theatre's current production of Follies. (more...)

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.

Elena Dimov Releases GNEDICHElena Dimov Releases GNEDICH
by BWW News Desk - Jan 25, 2016

Summary: Maria Rybakova portrays the private world of the first Russian translator of the Iliad, the romantic poet and librarian Nikolai Gnedich (1784-1833). She builds the plot around Gnedich's translation of the Illiad into Russian. The narrative progresses from the adult Gnedich's memories of his childhood on a small country estate in Ukraine in the first Song, through his illness and his discovery of the magnificent Greek epic about the siege of Troy, a work that was to change his life forever, to the completion of his translation, representing a final victory over all that life threw at him. The translation truly was a titanic task, one that continued for almost twenty-two years (1807-1829). Like the Iliad itself, the novel consists of twelve Songs or Cantos, and covers the life of Gnedich from his childhood to his death. It depicts the lives of Gnedich and his best friend, the poet Batyushkov, who is slowly losing his mind, and incorporates tropes from their poetry and from Greek mythology, as well as magnificent images of imperial Russia and of the Homeric world. The space occupied by the novel thus extends from snowy Russian villages to aristocratic St. Petersburg salons, magnificent Italian landscapes, and the austere Greece of Homer's heroes. Gnedich opens with a striking allusion to Homeric Greece; allusions such as this, which crop up throughout the novel, will be a source of great joy for those who admire the ancient Greek poem: 'The rage that killed so many/the wretched rage of Achilles/who knew that he would perish/ that he would perish young.' The novel is conceived in spectacular fashion: Rybakova's style resembles a movie projection with stop-cards at the key moments in Gnedich's life. We are party to some of his long conversations with his friend, in particularly striking settings. This lends a novelistic effect to the tale, which chronicles Gnedich's life for a period of over twenty years. The narrative is frequently interrupted by streams of consciousness and Reminiscence by the protagonists. At the same time, the novel continues the traditions of Russian classic literature, with its attention to detail and to the characters' psychological traits. Since Gnedich spent almost his entire life translating Homer's epic poem, Maria Rybakova has chosen verse as the most suitable stylistic means of recreating that life. To the English-speaking world, this genre of poetic biography is best exemplified by Ruth Padel's Darwin - A Life in Poems. Gnedich was released in June 2015 by Glagoslav Publications, a publishing house specializing in the publication and worldwide distribution of Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian literature, in order to promote the culture of the Slavic countries to the Western world and provide a basis for better understanding between the Slavs and the West. About the Author: Maria Rybakova was born in Moscow. She studied Greek and Latin in Russia, then in Germany and subsequently in the USA, where she is now teaching the subject. Her first novel, Anna Grom and her Ghost, was published in 1999. Several novels and short stories followed. Maria Rybakova has received numerous literary awards in Russia, including the Students' Booker Prize, the Eureka Prize, the Sergei Dovlatov Prize, the Antologia Award, the Russian Prize and the Globus Award. Her novels have been translated into German, Spanish and French. Gnedich is the first of Rybakova's books to appear in English. About the Translator: Born in Vladivostok, Russia, Elena Dimov is a translator of Russian. She holds an M.S. in Oriental Studies from Far Eastern University and a PhD in History from the Russian Academy of Sciences. She is currently studying Russian bard poetry and translating Russian literature into English, including works by Joseph Brodsky and Maria Rybakova. Reviews: What if the biographers of poets pastiched their subjects by writing their lives in their favoured verse forms? Maria Rybakova, a professor of Classics in the US and the author of prose fiction in Russian, pulls off a version of this feat in Gnedich, a slim novel in twelve cantos composed in blocks of syllabic verse enlivened by flourishes of dactylic hexameter. -Andrew Kahn, Times Literary Supplement Review copies are available upon request.
