BWW Review: ALTAR BOYZ: Music With a Mission
by Nancy Grossman - Mar 27, 2017

Boy bands were big in the '90s. Marked by close harmonies, synchronized choreography, and saccharine sex appeal, each had its own image and they were particularly successful with young female audiences. ALTAR BOYZ at the Stoneham Theatre spins The Concept, combining it with the popular wave of Christian-themed music, and the result is an original musical revue featuring five singing and dancing boys on the last night of their national "Raise the Praise" tour.

BWW Review: Be Prepared for the Ride of Your Life with Solnik's THE FARE
by Kristen Morale - Mar 20, 2017

When a man gets into a taxi, inebriated and tired, and is convinced that the driver kidnapped him because he refused to pay an exorbitant fare, is his truth greater than the driver's testimony of racial slurs and attempted murder? When there is no other witness accept one's memory, these two men must step up and make the decision of which one is right - a decision not clouded by race or ego, but what the 'facts' of that eventful night were. The Fare is a play that has characters trying to convince both the audience and themselves what is right against what our educated 'instinct' deems to be right - and how unique a way this production makes it so.

BWW Review: The New Jewish Theatre's Taut and Intense NEVER THE SINNER
by Chris Gibson - Mar 18, 2017

Like a lot of writer John Logan's works NEVER THE SINNER explores the darker side of humanity. It was his first play, but you wouldn't know it by the intensity it spawns as its tale unfolds. The New Jewish Theatre is presenting a taut production of this piece which focuses our attention on Leopold and Loeb, the teenage purveyors of the 'crime of the century' in the early 1920's. It's a well crafted and dramatic show that only breaks the palpable tension that's been building in the air for an intermission about half way through it. What makes this story particularly timely, in my estimation, is that these two 'kids' became enamored with Nietzche's idea of there being 'supermen' who are above the law due to their supposed superiority. That's a drastic simplification of The Concept as a whole, but the point is that we can still see this type of thinking in the current world we live in. This is a show that's definitely worthy of your time and attention. (more...)

Sergei Kapitsa Releases PARADOXES OF GROWTH
by BWW News Desk - Mar 16, 2017

Summary: In this book, the famous Russian scientist, Sergei Kapitsa, explains complicated theories in an uncomplicated manner that is easily accessible to readers with no specialist knowledge. The author focuses on the processes taking place inside the global demographic revolution and on the destinies of nations, mankind and our planet as a whole. The author cites a number of facts and assessments concerning not only projections for population growth, but also a common view on the causes of the current and future crises, and on food and energy problems. The book Paradoxes of Growth addresses the vital problems of a global demographic revolution, when humanity moves into a period of limited reproduction. The answer to the questions of why this happens, and what the consequences of it might be, affects not only the distant future, but also our approach to solving the problems of modernity, and in particular our analysis of the causes and results of the global crisis. In his book, Sergei Kapitsa examines The Concept of the model and the main results of the mathematical modelling which led to the theory of growth of the world's population, and offers an interpretation of history and of the development of humanity, the present and the future that likely awaits us. The discussion of global issues is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis; rather, it serves to reveal the opportunities offered by a quantitative analysis of the history of the world. The Concept developed by Kapitsa concerns human civilization as a whole and may provide certain forecasts for communities - in the broadest sense of the world - and nations, as well. About the Author: Sergei Kapitsa was an outstanding Soviet and Russian scientist, professor and TV presenter. During his lifetime he was responsible for 14 inventions and 1 discovery and wrote hundreds of books and articles which were published in many languages around the world. He conducted scientific research and worked in numerous fields of science (aerodynamics, magnetism, applied electrodynamics, nuclear physics, the history of science and demographics, to name but a few). Professor Kapitsa was one of the founding fathers of the science of cliodynamics and the creator of the phenomenological mathematical model of hyperbolic growth of the world population and the global demographic transition. For hosting his TV program 'Evident, but Incredible' for many years, Kapitsa was awarded second place in the Guinness Book of Records and first place in the Russian Book of Records. In 2008, Kapitsa received a special TEFY award for his personal contribution to the development of Russian television. Title: Paradoxes of Growth Author: Sergei Kapitsa Publisher: Glagoslav Publications Language: English ISBN: 9781782671213 Extent: 136 pages Format: paperback, hardback, e-book Review copies are available upon request.
