Gregory Lattin Releases TRUTH OF LIES
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2016

'Truth Of Lies': a refreshing and telling true story about the power of lying and the greatness of the Lord to forgive. 'Truth Of Lies' is the creation of published author, Gregory Lattin, a proud lover of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He acknowledges Him as the Son of God, my Father. His grace and mercy is the reason he is here today. He grew up in a single parent home, raised by his mother. While his mother did not have the best in any regard, she gave her children what she had. His upbringing lacked the foundation he now has, one built on Christ and sufficed by God's grace. Despite a plethora of mistakes, God's plan saw him through. He still makes plenty of mistakes, but he acknowledges them and understands it is not in His will, and asks for forgiveness. He was forgiven and that has been the catalyst in his life that spurred writings such as this, as well as a host of poetry dedicated to the Father. He has known for several years his writings are from direct divine intervention. When he looks at the words left on a page, he is convinced those words could not have come from him. He humbly submits these words to the readers, so that they may be edifying and illuminating. The revelation of understanding and learning from the past has helped him make a better life. Through his faith in Jesus, he understands the world does not start and stop with him. (more...)

BWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La Mirada
by Don Grigware - Sep 19, 2016

Victor Hugo's monumental romantic/gothic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, published in 1831, centers in, around and on top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. So does the new musical of the same name written by Peter Parnell, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, which received its U.S. premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2014 and is currently receiving its Los Angeles premiere at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Stephen Gifford's set replete with stained glass windows, balcony and overhanging bells is scaled down from the original but still impressive and pulls you in effectively to another world, the ethereal realm of a higher power. Catholic boy that I am, every kyrie eleison exuded by the resounding chorus moved me to tears. (more...)

BWW Review: STAGES St. Louis' Inspirational SISTER ACT
by Chris Gibson - Sep 19, 2016

STAGES St. Louis closes their 30th season with SISTER ACT, a musical based on the hit 1992 film of the same name, although this might actually be more entertaining in a lot of ways. Having seen a touring production a few years back, I was a bit concerned about some of the rougher edges that the show presents. But, this regional premier staging focuses on the inspirational aspects, and that lightens the mood considerably, producing delightful results in the process. This is a splendidly rendered production, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. (more...)

A play with music, A Star Has Burnt My Eye is inspired by the extraordinary true story of Connie Converse. An unknown musician living in Greenwich Village in the early 1950s, Converse wrote and self-recorded original music-by turns beautiful, poetic, funny, and haunting-that was far ahead of its time. A quarter of a century later, long despairing of finding an audience for her art, Converse left goodbye letters that weren't quite suicide notes, and vanished. (more...)

BWW Recap: WESTWORLD Reveals What it All Means
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 23, 2016

Guts, gore, heists, shoot outs, revelations, and one gnarly snake tattoo are just some of what you can find in the fourth and most explosively exciting episode of WESTWORLD to date. The episode, entitled “Dissonance Theory,” already starts laying the firm foundation for where the season is headed, while doing what WESTWORLD does best; satiates your appetite but with such incredible flavors that make you want to come back for more just to confirm its brilliance. “Dissonance Theory,” and what the concept of the title suggests, is that the human mind is constantly trying to find patterns amongst their cognitions and understanding (i.e. how your brain works and what it is understanding) but when a dissonance arrises, there is a need to take action to get rid of said dissonance to return to the peaceful equilibrium of before. As the hosts' world begins to unravel from inside out, and the inner workings of Westworld on every level start exposing their pure selfish corruption, dissonances are cropping up all around at a rate so quick, the possibility attaining pure and consistent cognitions is falling too far out of reach.  (more...)

BWW Review: WILLY WONKA at Vintage Theatre
by colin roybal - Oct 2, 2016

The magical world of Willy Wonka's candy empire is a story that most are familiar with. From the rooms with flavored wallpaper, to the oompa-loompa minion workers, to the rich chocolate waterfall and river, the world of Willy Wonka's candy factory is whimsical and epic. But how does that world, which had so much help from cinematic geniuses and high-budget settings, get transferred to the living stage? (more...)

BWW Review: Pseudonym Productions' Odd CATHARSIS Misses Haunted House Mark
