BWW Review: WNO's Next Chapter in THE RING: SIEGFRIED
by Roger Catlin - May 9, 2016

In the third installment of the Washington National Opera's mammoth staging of Richard Wagner's The Ring of the Nibelung at the Kennedy Center, a new Brunnhilde awakens, Fafner's dragon turns out to be more of a monster truck, and the titular star of the work, Siegfried, turns out to be much more of a jerk than you'd ever want him to be.

Alexander Lawrence Pens LEVIATHAN'S RUSE, VOL. 1
by BWW News Desk - May 4, 2016

Leviathan's Ruse, Vol. 1: The Comprehensive Guide to the Battle Between Good and Evil Christian non-fiction / 6' x 9' paperback / perfect bound ISBN: 978-0-9972578-0-9 Ebook ISBN: 978-0-9972578-1-6 404 pp. with 51 illustrations / $16.99 USD Watchman Alexander Publications is pleased to announce the release of 'Leviathan's Ruse, Vol. 1: The Comprehensive Guide to the Battle Between Good and Evil,' a groundbreaking exposé of The Dragon and his kingdom. 'My goal is to inoculate the people of God against the powerful deception of the last days,' stated the author. Today, there is a grand push towards transhumanism, pluralism, and a one-world government. Alexander Lawrence believes that fallen angelic forces are responsible, and he won't let them go unchallenged. Leviathan's Ruse reveals the ways in which fallen angels have misled human beings throughout history, and how events initiated in the distant past are feeding into Satan's end-game. The book helps readers to connect the dots between ancient mythologies, paranormal activities, mystery religions, occult societies, and more. Along the way, Mr. Lawrence offers rebuttals to commonly-held ideas about biblical end-time prophecies and characters (e.g., the meaning of the beasts seen by the prophet Daniel, and the identity of Lucifer). Available at major online book retailers and at About The Author Alexander Lawrence is a husband, father, and Messianic who makes computer graphics for a living. He graduated with a B.A. from Texas A&M University in 2004. He teaches and leads worship at Messiah Echad congregation in Georgetown, Texas. Rabbi Jonathan Dade says of Alexander, 'He truly is a genuine, practical, scripturally-minded guy with a lot of wisdom.' For more about the author, see (410) 446-0899 (more...)

BWW Recap: 'Blood of My Blood' Returns on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - May 30, 2016

We're over halfway done with this season of Game of Thrones, and last night's episode entitled “Blood of My Blood” should have probably been called “Home” (the title of Episode 2), considering more characters were reconnected with their past, began to discern who they are at the core versus who they are expected to be, as well as some literally returning home. However, we did get our mandatory dragon shot! Finally we found out where Summer's CGI budget went! Subsequently, we did get a lot of general plot development this week! Yay! Things happened! Arya was able to move past her stick training, Sam and Gilly got to their destination, we saw the return of two long gone uncles, and Jaime was forced out of the Kingsguard and into his book location!

by Guest Blogger: Elizabeth Porsella - Jun 29, 2016

The two performances of Shrek are over, I graduated from elementary school and now I'm off for the summer.   I have so many great memories of 5th grade but I think being a part of the play was the high point of my school year.  Some of the rehearsals seemed long but the school year really seemed to fly by once I was cast in Shrek.  It's weird to think that it's over, that I'll be in middle school in September.  I hope I get to do a play there as well.

BWW Recap: THRONES Brings Death and Destruction in 'The Battle of the Bastards'
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 20, 2016

We're just one episode away from the final episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones and the penultimate episode entitled “The Battle of the Bastards” premiered last night. Despite what the promos had us believe, we got not one, but two battles this episode, and it was certainly an episode jam packed with death, gore, and violence. All three things we're quite used to on Thrones! Episode 9 of this show has become known amongst its viewers and creators as the big one. It's usually the episode where everything comes to fruition, the climax of the series that has everyone cheering and applauding the show immediately after for its genius and shock. Last year we had “Hardhome,” which was a direct departure from the books and gave us death and destruction, only to have the Night King lift his arms and raised the dead. However, this episode, despite being totally epic in scale and stunning visually, lacked a certain complexity, integrity, and dimensionality that made episodes like “Blackwater” back in Season 2 so rich and exciting. “The Battle of the Bastards” was entertaining and a feat of direction, cinematography, and scale, for sure, but its predictability, cluttered circumstance, and ever so confusing character choices and motivations made the episode suffer as a whole.  (more...)

BWW Review: LIVING ON THE HYPHEN Hits Hard in Downtown Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - Apr 7, 2016

LIVING ON THE HYPHEN, the creative brain-child of Leng Wong and Anu Naimpally, danced, sang and acted it's way into the prestigious Rollins Theater at The Long Center of the Performing Arts last weekend. This piece of experimental theatre presented hard-hitting questions about our cultural differences and the mysterious 'no man's land' of "Hyphen". Hyphen quite literally means: a punctuation mark - one used especially to divide or to compound words, word elements, or numbers. Director Leng Wong said it best, "Using the vehicle of humor and various performance art forms, I want to illuminate our commonality of being different". This difference more specifically are the words divided by a single hyphen.The opposite of "hyphen-less" or being without hyphen is slightly touched upon, but the biggest element in Wong's and Naimpally's work is the interpretation of how culturally a "hyphen" separates us, divides us and defines us. Following Leng Wong's toothbrush lady through hyphen land, we meet other characters, with or without hyphens telling their story of the experiences their hyphen has bestowed upon them. Faces change, locations change but the overall theme of the characters straddling cultural identities and the weight of their hyphen, leaves the audience wondering how to cope with these realities. Having been written and performed by the ensemble, the storyline presented many questions for the audience regarding each character. While many questions are raised, only a few were actually answered regarding the players and the biggest being left to the audience: "What is my hyphen?". (more...)
