BWW Recap: There's 'No More Pretending' on WESTWORLD
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 31, 2016

“Contrapasso,” the title of Episode 5 of WESTWORLD refers to the concept in Dante's Inferno that every sinner should see an equally fitting punishment for their crime as the one they had committed. As guests continually exercise their id and indulge in depravity and the hosts who are victims of said indulgence start gaining consciousness and pushing back, they may find their own ring of hell at the end of their vacation. Everyone this week faces their demons and sees justice, in whatever form that maybe. For the more unsavory workers and guests of Westworld and their instinctually detached approach to the hosts from a more voyeuristic perspective, they will find an equally fitting end to their equally horrifying “sins”. For those with purer intentions and good hearts, they will battle against the sin exercising all around them and tempting them in to struggle in the search for a haven. “Contrapasso” is all about ones actions and the due Retribution they will face, allowing the characters to reach a beautiful climax as the world and the balance starts shifting for them, be it in the positive or negative light.

BWW Review: RATS Has Heart and a Few Twists in its Tail at Old 505 Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Nov 2, 2016

It was at the time nothing more than a media gaffe when a radio broadcaster called a garrison of Australian soldiers stationed in Libya 'rats in a trap'.

It proved fertile ground for Writer/Director Chris Huntly-Turner, presenting Rats, a double feature at Old 505 Theatre in Newtown investigating the men on the battleground, and the women defending their homeland, Dirt and Moonshine respectively.

BWW Review: Bravura LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES at Center Stage: A Welcome Antidote to Seasonal Good Cheer

Abuse Survivor Releases 'Today I See the Sunrise: Daily Meditations for Survivors of Torture and Abuse'
by BWW News Desk - Dec 2, 2016

Julie A. Cipolla, a Brooklyn author, inspirational writer and abuse survivor, releases her first book of daily meditations for survivors, 'Today I See the Sunrise,' based on what she has learned about how to heal from the legacies of torture and abuse. With the Winter holidays approaching, survivors of torture and abuse may feel even more isolated, perhaps from their families of origin where the abuse took place such as victims of domestic or partner abuse or child abuse. This may be a sad time of year for others like service members with PTSD, victims of torture in declared and undeclared wars and forced conscription, victims of sexual abuse and slavery, victims of unjust labor practices and genocide who may feel more alone at a time when the rest of the world is celebrating. These 'wounded survivors' may be interested in reading 'Today I See the Sunrise: Daily Meditations for Survivors of Torture and Abuse,' the new book from Brooklyn author Julie A. Cipolla. The book is based upon her own experiences having survived childhood torture, abuse, neglect and finally abandonment. She has found a way to forgive and has written the book to help the next survivor find courage and meaning in his or her suffering. This book is not about Retribution, but about recognizing our individual and collective suffering. Once we become able to cherish and hold sacred our own and each others' broken hearts, we stand to face our perpetrators as Survivors - we learn that we are stronger because of our experiences. And perhaps we also learn to forgive. . . . Julie A. Cipolla enjoys residing in her warm and cozy one-room 'castle' in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in New York City. Contact Information Julie A. Cipolla 718-290-3660 julie_cipolla@yahoo.com (more...)
