In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds “ruined” by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

BWW Recap: 'The Past is Past' on BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Series FinaleBWW Recap: 'The Past is Past' on BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Series Finale
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 27, 2014

Here we are, at the end. It's a bittersweet moment to say goodbye to a show as brilliant as BOARDWALK, but it must be done. So raise your glasses 'to the lost' one last time, waving off an exceptionally superb show that we loved with all our hearts! This ultimate episode, entitled 'Eldorado', meaning a land of weath and opportunity, opened in a parallel scene to what we are used to seeing in our opening credits. Nucky, on the shores of Atlantic City. It's different this time however. It's darker, Nucky removes all of his items of wealth and stature, and dives head first into the raging tides of the water, a truly incredibly metaphor for the door to Hell and darkness Nucky walked through and never came back out of.

S. N. Deinscheiss Pens Legal ThrillerS. N. Deinscheiss Pens Legal Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Oct 20, 2014

S. N. Deinscheiss always dreamed about writing fiction but never imagined his first book would be inspired by injustices in America's legal system. Now he taps that research to write his first novel, 'Wuwpoo,' book one of a three part series of thrillers that explore the impact of a justice system gone awry and its impact on families. Assaulted and tortured by law enforcement. Betrayed by his own lawyer in a custody battle. Financially Ruined by the opposing lawyer's tactics. The twists and turns attributed to the main character seem a little far-fetched to be real. 'With a little research, anyone can find examples of people going through similar adversity,' said Deinscheiss. But what does an ancient prophecy have to do with the courtroom drama? 'Absolutely nothing,' says the author. 'The book is a suspense thriller written for entertainment and the curse provided a nice twist for the story.' The setting and characters are allegorical depictions, including the author's pseudonym. Even though the plot is reality based, there's a significant amount of storytelling weaved in. 'There's a lot of the obvious that gets presented so extraordinarily different,' said Deinscheiss. About the Author: S. N. Deinscheiss grew up in the mountains of east Tennessee and Virginia where his love of the outdoors flourished and his interests in writing began. Just a passing notion more than twenty years ago, his urge to write was born again when he decided to change career tracks and become a full time writer. For more information about WUWPOO, please visit smashwords.com. You can also email the author at wuwpoo@gmail.com. (more...)

Film to Honor Theatrical Visionary Reza AbdohFilm to Honor Theatrical Visionary Reza Abdoh
by BWW News Desk - Nov 9, 2014

Producer Adam Soch is pleased to announce the making of a documentary film that will share the extraordinary work of the late theatrical visionary, Reza Abdoh, with a larger audience. Soch commented, 'Every so often there is an artist whose body of work is so profound and impactful that it needs to be brought to the forefront, even twenty years after his passing. In this case, the May 2015 premier will mark the twentieth anniversary of Reza's death.' A 1990 Los Angeles Times Magazine article described Abdoh as 'a genuine visionary, a reincarnation of the 1960s confrontational, experiments of communal ensembles such as the Living and Open theaters . . . He's not out to make a deal. . . . He's determined to make art in an era when even the word artist is under siege.' Soch explained further, 'Before his death of AIDS at the young age of 32, Abdoh had created an impressive body of stage productions known for their sensory overload, ferocious energy and hallucinatory dreamscapes. With his company Dar A Luz, formed in 1991, Abdoh created plays that have made a major impact on experimental theatre worldwide.' Abdoh and his troupe often performed in downtrodden storefronts, warehouses, lofts, and abandoned hotels. With titles like 'Peep Show,' 'Pasos en la Obscuridad' (Footsteps in the Darkness), 'The Hip-Hop Waltz of Eurydice,' 'Bogeyman,' 'Tight, Right, White,' 'The Law of Remains,' and his critically acclaimed 'Quotations From a Ruined City,' his performances provided a glimpse into his personal outrage toward many aspects of American life. Abdoh's work is still revered and referenced in the theater community today and according to Soch, 'Reza's work has become regularly incorporated into college and university syllabi. It has become legendary. One of the goals of this project is to provide a means for students and theater lovers to get a true sense of what Abdoh's work was like. This documentary will offer a portrait of the world and work of Abdoh and his company, Dar a Luz. The film will feature never before seen excerpts of Abdoh's most important pieces alongside interviews with Abdoh himself, his collaborators, critics, friends and family. We are very fortunate to have access to a rich archive of video materials that were recorded over the course of his career -more than 300 hours of live performance, rehearsals and interviews.' Soch continued, 'Early in Reza's career, there were three amazing people who recognized his talent and supported Reza unconditionally in his theatrical creations: Alan Mandell, Diane White and Marta Holen. It is an incredible honor to have their continued trust, loyalty and support as Executive Producers of our film. Without their love for Reza and his work, this project would not be possible and we are deeply grateful.' To ensure the completion of the project, Soch has created a Kickstarter Campaign to finance the final stages of the film's production: editing, promotion and distribution. Soch explained, 'To date, approximately $8,000 of the $35,000 budget has been raised. The Kickstarter Campaign ends November 30, and we've got quite a ways to go.' Potential donors can gain a better understanding of the project and Abdoh's work by viewing a six-minute trailer that showcases the documentary's style and content on the Kickstarter website at http://kck.st/1wPrn1W. Adam Soch is an award-winning filmmaker and producer with projects in TV at Classic Arts Showcase (www.classicartsshowcase.org), video, and theatre productions worldwide. Mr. Soch is one of four founders of the International Television channel available in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The ARTS Channel, with millions of daily viewers, focuses on highlighting the disciplines, pleasures and wonders of classic arts such as ballet, opera, theater, dance and film/video, through the power of television.

It is all about how an author carefully and purposely beckons each word to each page until those words pull together into a magnificent creation having a life of its own. The book I am reviewing,All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, is one such masterful creation. Don't wait for the paperback, don't wait for the movie, buy the book, now. Buy it as a gift, buy it for yourself, insist that your book club adds it to the list of must reads. Read it when you have the time to savor each and every word that has been so carefully placed. This book puts to shame many of the other books I have read this year. The characters, the story line, the settings, the time periods, the premise and purpose that stand behind the book are knitted together flawlessly, satisfying the reader completely.
