Guest Blog: Composer Joshua Schmidt On ADDING MACHINE: A MUSICAL
by Guest Blogger: Joshua Schmidt - Sep 21, 2016

One could say that the Machine chose me first, then I chose it. Adapting Elmer Rice's 1923 expressionist juggernaut was the long-time dream of librettist Jason Loewith. Apparently he had approached other composers with the project to no avail. When he finally inquired as to my interest in the project in January of 2004, I was working as a sound designer on a show he was producing at the Next Theatre Company in Evanston, Illinois, where he served as Artistic Director. Up to that point, I had never written a musical, nor did envision myself writing one and I had never read, seen or even heard of Elmer Rice's The Adding Machine. (more...)

THE CHARMING SWINDLER is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2016

If pride comes before the fall, what comes after? Michelkin Publishing, an independent publishing company based in Roswell, NM, announces the release of a new title that answers that question. 'The Charming Swindler,' released on September 16, 2016, invites readers to sit down for a drink with main character Eddie Crisp as he waits for his soon-to-be spouse to finish preparing for their Las Vegas wedding. This adventurous and dramatic story relays the exciting events leading up to the marriage of Eddie, a young, smart and charismatic television producer, and Alex, the love he met while they were both students at the fictional Walphien College. The book takes readers on a wild trip from Oakland, California, through Boston and New York, back to Oakland, and ending in Las Vegas as Eddie and Alex prepare to wed. Eddie's arrogance and sense of entitlement also serve as central characters in this woeful tale of alcoholism, depression and, ultimately, love. As his own craving and self-worth spin him out of control, Eddie shares what it means to be a 21st-century alpha male just before the novel's ending flips that concept on its head. Readers will be shocked by the final pages of this new adult fiction tale. The title is currently available exclusively on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle e-book. 'The Charming Swindler' is Jeff Musillo's latest novel coming on the heels of his successful title 'The Eternal Echo.' Musillo lives in Brooklyn and is a visual artist, screenwriter, director, and actor. He was recently cast in a television pilot titled 'Shelter.' Michelkin Publishing is a division of Michelkin, LLC, formed in Roswell in May 2016. Michelkin Publishing focuses on publishing work by first-time authors and established authors who have unique stories to share with the world. The company motto is 'Read. Something. Different.' Michelkin Publishing publishes both print and digital books and distributes titles via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, iBooks, and many other digital book retailers.

BWW Review: FAHRENHEIT 451 by Different Stages At The Vortex
by Frank Benge - Nov 21, 2016

FAHRENHEIT 451 is a play based on the 1953 dystopian novel of the same name by Ray Bradbury. The novel is regarded as one of his best works. It presents a future society where books are outlawed and 'firemen' burn any that are found. The title comes from the temperature at which paper becomes combustible. There was a 1966 film adaptation of the novel and Bradbury himself developed it into this play in the late 70s. Bradbury has stated that he wrote it to address his concerns about the McCarthy era and the threat of book burning. In later years, he stated it was a commentary on how mass media reduces interest in reading literature. The story is set in an unspecified city at an unspecified time in the future somewhere after the year 1960. (more...)

Jimmy Wilson Pens EDWARD THE MAGNIFICENT
by BWW News Desk - Nov 16, 2016

'Edward the Magnificent': a fantastical story following an eccentric boy on an exciting journey. 'Edward the Magnificent' is the creation of published author, Jimmy Wilson, who is the lead pastor of Frontline Outreach Church located in beautiful Hartwell, Georgia. The Lord spoke to him about planting a church several years ago. He felt like Moses did when God told him to go to his chosen people and set them free. Moses gave God a lot of excuses, just as Jimmy has. He says, 'No one will listen. I can't speak well all the same as Moses'. Moses let God do the work. He was obedient to the calling. Just as Moses did, Jimmy is the same. Excuse after excuse. Moses didn't do everything perfectly neither has Pastor Jimmy. God spoke many blessings into the life of Pastor Jimmy. He just wanted to live for God and bless his people. As God was moving more and more in his life, Pastor Jimmy felt led to start writing. Most people think because he is a pastor, the book he should write is about some great revelation from God or some great doctrinal truth. God had Something Different for him. He was led to write about a humorous little boy, Edward the Magnificent, as he liked to call himself. Adventurous, young inventor, and imagination builder. Shy, backward, and weird, but a heart to stretch his imagination as far as the eye can see. Jimmy is also the husband of a beautiful wife of thirty years. Tabitha is always there to help him along in life. They have three grown children, Priscilla, Holly, and JJ. Jimmy and Tabitha have four wonderful grandchildren they truly adore from the bottom of their heart. There is one more grandchild on the way at the time of this writing; another boy. (more...)

BWW Interview: Louis Baker of RAGTIME at Actors' Repertory Theatre Of Simi
by Cary Ginell - Dec 2, 2016

Louis Baker has had a varied career in the entertainment world. As an actor, he studied under three prestigious performers: Bill Duke, Haile Gerima, and Debbie Allen. He has worked as a voiceover artist in the animation world, co-produces with his wife a family-centered web series called Faces of Offense, and has played a variety of roles on stage in shows such as Tommy, West Side Story, and The Wiz. But none of those parts are as meaningful to Louis as his current one - playing the historically-based author/orator Booker T. Washington in the Actors Repertory Theatre of Simi's production of Ragtime. The show closes this weekend, but we cornered Louis after last Sunday's performance to talk about his character in the context of the current political turmoil in America, which, unfortunately, is not that much different from what was depicted in E. L. Doctorow's famous novel. (more...)
