BWW Review: The Engeman's 1776
by Melissa Giordano - Sep 28, 2016

In seeing the Tony winning Sherman Edwards/Peter Stone musical 1776, we get an interesting account of the events leading up to the signing of the Declaration Of Independence. It is actually uncanny - and kind of funny - how this story still resonates today; petty arguing amongst congress and how divided 'leaders' can be are emphasized in this production. Obviously we've come far since then but, at the same time, it seems not far at all. (more...)

M. K. Christopher Pens CHRONICLES OF GENESIS: ASCENSION
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2016

M. K. Christopher, author of the new book 'Chronicles of Genesis: Ascension', is a chicken-eating, hoodie-wearing, door-holding, trumpet-playing, sheep-worshiping, joke-telling, book-writing, game-playing, science-shouting young adult born in Illinois. The only awards he ever won were for wearing a sweatshirt throughout all of summer at band camp and for holding the door for the entirety of the band for three years in a row. Marc also started a running meme of 'Get serious!' and 'All hail the sheep!' just because he could. He plays the trumpet and the French horn and loves video games, comedy, science, and chickens, because he thinks they are awesome. His favorite quality of life is irony, because a joke is a very serious thing. He is not some great artistic legendary master of ink and paper. He is a simple, 'slightly' vulgar, sarcastic, anonymous mortal with a pen, some paper, and a dream. (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...)
