BWW Recap: Everyone is an 'Oathbreaker' on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - May 9, 2016

This week's episode of Game of Thrones aired on Mother's Day, perhaps as an ironic detail of seeding spread throughout the episode in the same vein that Tyrion killed Tywin in season 4 on Father's Day. The episode, entitled “Oathbreaker,” had it's share of deaths and gore, but seemingly shed light on three of our characters whom can be considered “oathbreakers” of sorts. (more...)

BWW Recap: GAME OF THRONES Reveals Shocking Truths in 'The Door'
by Jessica Naftaly - May 23, 2016

This weeks episode of GAME OF THRONES entitled 'The Door,' revealed a lot of information and answers to some of the biggest questions of the series, as well answered some questions that don't necessarily need answering. In a show riddled with plot holes, some of which were highlighted this episode, their ability to carry out reveals and give us answers isn't always up to task. If your biggest concern watching GAME OF THRONES was finding out the origin of Hodor's name, then this was the episode for you! If the importance of finding out the origin of the White Walkers, the biggest threat that endangers the lives of all of our characters, is highest on the scale for you, you'll get answer, but the attention and care given to revealing said answer may disappoint you. It's all apparent just looking at the recaps and reactions. The most used phrase from an episode in which we learn where the White Walkers came from, another direwolf dies, a mythic race goes extinct, and the Starks make a battle plan, is 'Hold the door!' That says quite a lot. (more...)

His parents struggle to come to terms with their son's eccentricity and our boy struggles in the mud and the filth to, not only achieve his dream of becoming an escapologist, but to survive, in a ruthless Edwardian dock town. As he grows our boy finds himself an integral part of the most terrifying events of British industrial history and his personal journey even intersects with the world's greatest showman himself. A connection which will influence both characters till the end of their days. With his hero's guidance, he battles against the irrepressible tide of responsibility, to balance childhood folly and humanity with the cynicism of adulthood. (more...)

BWW Review: Unusually Bold and Engrossing FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS by Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright at the Taper
by Don Grigware - Apr 25, 2016

Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks has the uncanny ability to get under your skin and really make you feel the turmoil and misery of the black soul. In her latest play, now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum through May 15 entitled Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2, & 3), Parks takes the audience back to 1862 and the slave involvement in the Civil War starting with the anticipation and fear of going off to war, then witnessing the horrors of the actual war itself, and the aftermath for returning soldiers and their families. Under the sturdy hand of director Jo Bonney, the cast is amazing... and the play is mostly fascinating to watch, mainly because Parks' style does not repeat itself from part to part. (more...)
