BWW Reviews: Theater J's THE ARGUMENT is Stirring and Masterfully Written
by Benjamin Tomchik - Oct 30, 2013

Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros's masterfully written play is not meant to be another exhaustive debate on the issue of abortion. It simply asks us to watch the play not through the prism of our own beliefs, but through the actions of the characters onstage. Theater J's production asks a lot of questions, which is what good theater is supposed to do. It asks us to reconsider our beliefs and challenge our curiosity. The Argument at Theater J is theater at its finest and definitely worth seeing. (more...)

by David Clarke - Jan 30, 2014

'Couch Potato Politics': New Book Blends Pop-Culture Perceptions and Politics
by BWW News Desk - Dec 15, 2013

Isn't it amazing that the votes of the ignorant and those of the well-informed carry the same weight? Mark A. Prior, a Los Angeles stagehand by trade, considers the ramifications of that question and more in his book, "Couch Potato Politics: Why America Is Screwed Up And Why It's Our Own Damn Fault." Mr. Prior set out to examine the issues currently facing the United States and has essentially translated the heady world of American government and politics into a witty & biting primer for any Joe or Jill Citizen to easily understand. From the two-party system to gerrymandering to legalizing marijuana, Mark covers a cornucopia of topics but makes The Argument for the United State's biggest problem - voter apathy. His contention is that the unwillingness of average citizens to educate themselves on the issues, or vote at all, is what has enabled unscrupulous political operators & special interest groups to feather their own nests at the tax-payers' expense. But instead of accepting this status quo, Mr. Prior optimistically reminds the reader that Americans have in their possession the exact tool needed to fix this problem. 'The power of the vote has not been diminished in the 237 years since the Constitution was written. Merely forgotten. The act of voting is a habit that should be practiced regularly and judiciously; it can be compared to the practice of eating well and exercising. To give up or even simply lessen these practices can and typically does compromise one's well-being.' - Couch Potato Politics. Mark A. Prior currently works as a stagehand and lighting technician for concerts & special events. The Georgia Southern University graduate received a Bachelors of Business Administration degree in 1998 and called the Peach State home for twenty years. Mr. Prior is also an aspiring screenwriter and has been living in Los Angeles since 2008. 'Couch Potato Politics' is available in paperback & Kindle format at Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Couch-Potato-Politics-ebook/dp/B00COUXXZS/), for Nook at BarnesandNoble.com (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/couch-potato-politics-mark-a-prior/1115290843), and eBook format at Smashwords, Kobo, Apple iBookstore, Blio and Diesel.

BWW Reviews: Theatre Lab's Terrific Production of THE SUNSET LIMITED
by Chris Gibson - Aug 16, 2013

Playwright Cormac McCarthy has crafted an intriguing work with THE SUNSET LIMITED, and even though he skimps on fully developing his characters, there is still plenty to chew on here. It's also the inaugural production of Theatre Lab, and I'm always happy to welcome a new company to the local theatre scene. This particular piece may be especially light on action and heavy on dialogue, but Cormac's use of wit keeps things humming along without becoming too static. The Theatre Lab has put together a strong production powered by two excellent performances. (more...)
