by Jude Buot - Oct 26, 2016

BWW Review: Theatre22's Elaborate THE PRIDE Pulsates and Plods
by Amelia Reynolds - Nov 3, 2016

In the opening scene of 'The Pride,' we immediately understand two things about the men on stage: they are British, and they are uncomfortable. It's 1958. Oliver says hello to Philip. The conversation is taught, small, and as light-hearted as two people 'with nothing in common' can muster. In this middle-class London home, it is not what these polite people say to one another, but what they don't say--or, perhaps, can't say--that drives Alexi Kaye Campbell's sentimental split-period piece. When Philip's wife says she feels something in the room, the light bulb in your head goes off, and the tension makes sense. (more...)

In Hello My Love, Agnieszka's daughter Elise confronts and reconciles the often conflicting worlds of a consuming self-oriented career and the other-oriented demands of a relationship and a family. The two worlds is most obvious in Book 3, Welcome Reluctant Stranger in which the heroine, Leilani, crosses lands and two quite different cultures. Praise for Welcome, Hello, My Love (ISBN: 978-0996247412, published: December 2013): 'The unexpected surprises and emotional encounters of this novel keep the reader enthralled until the very last page... - an excellent read for one who doubts the power of love at first sight.' -GoodbooksToday.com 'It's a tale as old as time, but some of (The Lovers') particular trials are pretty unusual and make for an entertaining read.' -San Francisco Book Review '.... unlike anything I expected...three-dimensional characters....struggles are very real....I enjoyed the writing style. It was new, different and refreshing to have a literary spin on the romance genre.' -Bookaholic Ramblings '....the book could've been ripped straight out of everyday life. It tells a love story the way it might have really happened, not overly flowerish or overly feel-good like you may expect from romance novels. I actually liked that the most about this book.' -Cassidy Crimson's Blog Praise for Welcome, Hello, Agnieszka! ISBN: 978-0996247429, published in 2014): '...a beautiful narrative ...an intricate, heart-wrenching coming-of-age story about family and love.' -GoodbooksToday Reviews '...character descriptions written to perfection with a unique POV that places you deep in her thoughts and feelings.' -5 Stars, Michael Alexander Beas for Readers' Favorite '...interesting, enlightening and, in some respects, heartbreaking. ... All families struggle with issues, this one more than most.' -4 Stars, Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite Praise for Welcome, Reluctant Stranger (ISBN: 978-0996247436, published in 2015): 'Welcome, Reluctant Stranger spans across many genres, though it does so impressively, without losing the sense of the plot and characters. A brilliant love story, also so much else ... Expertly crafted with intricately woven layers ... ' 5 stars GoodbooksToday.com Reviews' 'A touching story about a woman who must confront her family's past. The carefully constructed story helps the reader connect to the characters on many different levels. Welcome, Reluctant Stranger is an engaging novel with layers of love, intrigue, twists and turns, and family secrets.' -5 stars - Self-Publishing Review ' ... a captivating story ... crisply written and plot driven. Journey knows how to create characters readers will love and a plot that makes them turn pages with anticipation.' -5 stars Reader's Favorite All three books are available in both print and ebook formats. About The Author: Evy Journey is a flâneuse (a female observer-wanderer) who writes about, and illustrates (oils, pastels, digital) what she sees that intrigues her. In a past life, with a now-dormant Ph.D., (University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana), and the primacy of her left brain, she researched, evaluated and developed mental health programs. But writing was her first love.

BWW Review: OSIPOVA & ARTISTS Crush It with a Captivating Contemporary Triple Bill
by Sondra Forsyth - Nov 14, 2016

Celebrated Russian ballerina Natalia Osipova crossed over to contemporary along with her real-life partner Sergei Polunin, the 'bad boy of ballet', in a triple bill of U.S. premieres at New York City Center from November 10th to 12th 2016. Watching these two consummate classical dancers believably embody a 21st century movement aesthetic was both astonishing and heartening. I have long told my own students that because dance is ephemeral and cannot be hung on a museum wall for posterity, each new generation of artists must be capable of dancing not only what was then but also what is now. Osipova and Polunin, as well as Jason Kittleberger and James O'Hara who shared the stage for this run, proved unequivocally that this goal is achievable. (more...)

BWW Review: A Beautiful Love Story that Doesn't Always Flow in Seattle Rep's VIETGONE
by Jay Irwin - Dec 8, 2016

The “playwright” of “Vietgone”, currently playing at the Seattle Rep, tells us from the beginning that this is not a war story but a love story.
