BWW Reviews: RADIO GOLF Not Quite Ready for Prime TimeBWW Reviews: RADIO GOLF Not Quite Ready for Prime Time
by Herbert Paine - Oct 3, 2014

David Hemphill's production of August Wilson's Radio Golf needs some work on a script that may be the least impressive of August Wilson's epic decalogy of black life in America, the Pittsburgh Cycle. If there are bright spots in the show, they are in the performances of T.A. Burrows and Roosevelt Watts. Both have infectious comic sensibilities and a firm command of their place on the stage.

The Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGEThe Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 29, 2014

The notion of 'really useful knowledge' was originated from the workers' awareness of the need for self-education in the early 19th century. In the 1820s and 1830s, workers' organizations in United Kingdom introduced this phrase to describe 'unpractical' knowledge like politics, economics and philosophy, as opposed to what factory owners proclaimed to be “useful knowledge”. Some time earlier capitalists began investing in advancement of their businesses through funding the education of workers in 'applicable' skills and disciplines such as engineering, physics, chemistry or math.

by BWW News Desk - Oct 29, 2013

Overton, an insider who worked on the trading floor since the '70s, presents the mechanics of greed that provides motivation for financial institutions' reason for being. Eye-opening and educational, this book gives broad coverage on the whys and wherefores of this bastion of the imminent demise of capitalism. It is in answer to the need for the public to be informed about the imbalances that brought about the failing economy and consequent protests such as the Occupy Wall Street movement. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Cabrillo Brings Back BYE BYE BIRDIEBWW Reviews: Cabrillo Brings Back BYE BYE BIRDIE
by Don Grigware - Jul 21, 2014

Ah, the rhythms of the 50s/60s! Got 'A Lot of Livin' to Do'! Lee Adams and Charles Strouse wrote the music and lyrics of Bye Bye Birdie to honor a generation of fans who swooned and literally gave themselves over to the rock and roll of Elvis Presley. Conrad Birdie (Austin MacPhee) is an obvious play on Conway Twitty, a rock star of that era who later became a superstar in the world of country. When Elvis went into the army, he became a national hero. Female teens adored him and would give up their own boyfriends just to be near him. This is Bye Bye Birdie in a nutshell now in a rollicking revival at Cabrillo Music Theatre through July 27. (more...)

'Bibi's Rainbow' Bridges the Cultural Divide for an Iranian Family in America'Bibi's Rainbow' Bridges the Cultural Divide for an Iranian Family in America
by BWW News Desk - Jan 31, 2014

Spanning four generations, Majid Amini's new novel 'Bibi's Rainbow' is an absorbing, honest and amusing story of the members of an extended immigrant Iranian family in Southern California who privately battle their painful pasts and resist assimilation into American culture. The matriarch who emerges from Amini's imagination illuminates the importance of kindness, affection, community, unconditional love, tolerance and forgiveness, in her efforts to help them move forward, heal old wounds and make peace with their lives in America. Bibi's character is strong, passionate and clever. She uses her positive attitude and keen understanding of human nature-and an unending supply of homemade exotic and gourmet meals and desserts-to soothe and quell their discomfort, strengthen their relationships with their neighbors and community, and challenge the rigid ideals that their ancient culture has imposed.
