In less than 24 hours, God joined Willie Santiago and Pastor Jim Phillips together in such a way as to form a bond that has continued for nearly two decades.

Robert K. Blechman Announces First Ever Twitter Novel Trilogy
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2017

'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' by Robert K. Blechman Though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am,' a laugh-out-loud, comic mystery novel originally posted in real time tweets on Twitter launches as a Kindle eBook on Monday, January 16, 2017. A creative innovator of the Twitter Fiction movement, Robert K. Blechman's novels are live-tweeted mystery narratives, now gathered into book form. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is compelling, entertaining, and shows off what can be done in the 140-character form with style and mastery. With send-ups of the mystery genre, social media conventions and cell phone behavior, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is a cornucopia of word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever character conditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old rules of storytelling. Robert K. Blechman's delight in the language shows in every tweet - that is to say, every thread of the story. His plot is tight, tingling, and diverting. The three books of The Twitstery Twilogy (ie. Twitter Mystery) depict the exploits of the world's only tweeting detective, unreliable narrator that he is. He tweets his experiences in real time, and the fact that he tells his story in tweets, that is 140 characters at a time, shapes his interpretation of the crimes he investigates. About the Author Robert K. Blechman graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in English Literature and earned an MBA in finance and a Ph.D. in Media Ecology from New York University. He has held a senior technology management positions at such iconic institutions a Columbia University Medical Center, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, HarperCollins Publishers and CBS News and teaches courses in communication and media studies at Fordham University. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' was preceded by national best-selling Twitter novel Executive Severance, Book 1 of the Twitstery Twilogy (NeoPoiesis Press, 2011) which won The Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fiction and by The Golden Parachute, (Kindle eBook, 2016). Product Details · File Size: 2001 KB · Print Length: 277 pages · Publication Date: January 16, 2017 · Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC · Language: English · ASIN: B01N5N3RAZ · Text-to-Speech: Enabled · X-Ray: Not Enabled · Word Wise: Enabled · Lending: Enabled · Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled Reviews 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is not only a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us: twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards; meditations on 'dreeting' or 'tweaming' which happens when sleep tweeting; and not just Farley but also Stuart Granger (stranger than true but true). And there are lots of memorable music references, too, including 'Torn Between Two Lovers,' one of my all-time favorite lame songs. But there's nothing lame about 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' Read and enjoy, and do keep in mind its injunction that 'though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.' - Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates, Loose Ends, and Ian's Ions and Eons. 'The genre of Twitstery, established by Robert K. Blechman in his Executive Severance turns to Phantwitsmagoria in the final book of his trilogy, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' A detective story written in tweets takes readers into a crazy voyage to a mystic Caribbean island, somewhat reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau with an odd campus on it. This is most likely the only detective novel in the world, literally (oh, yes, twitterally) stuffed with Marshall McLuhan quotes. Adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the story full of irony and witty puns.' - Andrey Miroshnichenko, author of Human as Media: The Emancipation of Authorship. Also by Robert K. Blechman Executive Severance (2011) Executive Severance, the Twitstery Twilogy, Book 1, won the 2012 Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work from the Media Ecology Association. Police Detective Arkaby a by-the-book procedural investigator so full of himself he tweets every particular of his investigation, confronts his most baffling case with the discovery of the completely severed body of a renown scientist and industrialist. His Twitter habit nearly costs him his own life at the hands an adversary who secretly follows his Twitter account. The Golden Parachute (2016) In The Golden Parachute, The Twitstery Twilogy, Book 2, Police Detective Arkaby receives an unlikely visitor from his past who sets him off on an international mystery quest. Literary adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the murder mystery story full of irony and witty puns.

BWW Review: Pointer/Counterpoint – City Opera's CANDIDE vs. Prototype's BREAKING THE WAVES
by Richard Sasanow - Jan 10, 2017

When I saw that New York City Opera was doing Leonard Bernstein's CANDIDE at the same time as New York's Prototype Festival--with Missy Mazzoli's BREAKING THE WAVES opening the festival of opera-theatre and music-theatre on the same night—I thought that it was great counter-programming. After all, what could be further from Mazzoli's brilliant but grim gem than Bernstein's comic masterpiece--proving there's more than one way to skin a music theatre piece? (more...)

BWW Review: Sweet Loving RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER THE MUSICAL Stops at Dolby
by Don Grigware - Dec 27, 2016

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was immortalized in the 60s TV classic of the same name and is now full-blown in an onstage touring musical called Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical. It follows the film almost to the letter with a bevy of animal characters, elves and of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. It was Mrs. Donner who gave birth to Rudolph, and to protect him from the world, his family covered up his nose... but to no avail. Now with its two-day stop at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Rudolph... is a delight for children with its sugar-coated, infectiously cute little story. (more...)

BWW Preview: Mazzoli-Vavrek WAVES Gets Second Break, at New York's Prototype Festival in January
by Richard Sasanow - Dec 27, 2016

For a new opera to have its second major showing less than four months after its premiere is unheard of—but then BREAKING THE WAVES, based on the Lars Von Trier film of the same name, isn't just any opera. This triumph by composer Missy Mazzoli, librettist Royce Vavrek, and direction by James Darrah—with a star-making turn by soprano Kiera Duffy in the central role of Bess—debuted at Opera Philadelphia last September and is having its New York premiere on January 6-9, 2017, over the first weekend of the Prototype Festival at NYU's Skirball Center.
