BWW Review: Out of the 'Flying PAN' and Into the TUNA CasseroleBWW Review: Out of the 'Flying PAN' and Into the TUNA Casserole
by Joseph Baker - Nov 30, 2015

Whether it's fruitcake or eggnog, people love their traditions during the Holiday Season -- and you'd better not disappoint. Memphians are accustomed to cranky 'Ebeneezer Scrooge' hoarding his coins at Theatre Memphis, and in midtown, we're resigned to A TUNA CHRISTMAS at Circuit and PETER PAN at Playhouse on the Square. Just last year, I had seen two -- yes, TWO -- productions of the latter: The version done live on NBC (with an off-center, almost 'sleep walking' Christopher Walken as 'Captain Hook') and the marvelous version directed and choreographed by Jordan Nichols and Travis Bradley at Playhouse. The Playhouse featured players were the unique Morgan Howard (as 'Peter') and the versatile David Foster (as a 'Jack Sparrow'-like 'Hook'); they were alternating the roles with Carly Crawford and Bill Andrews. I am happy to report that I finally was able to see Ms. Crawford and Mr. Andrews assay those roles, and they were equally inspired casting choices (but more about that later). (more...)

New Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is ReleasedNew Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 12, 2016

Climb aboard the mighty pirate ship Bella for a swashbuckling adventure with Ryan, the fearsome pirate captain. He and his crew of misfits seek buried treasure, but danger awaits those who sail the high seas. Follow their story in this new book by author Joseph Louis Garces III, released by Dog Ear Publishing. In their latest collaboration, Garces and illustrator Bethaney Abercrombie create a story that stars Ryan, who looks every bit The Pirate with his peg leg, patch covering one eye, a bushy beard and a hook in place of his right hand. He and his crew - who all have checkered pasts - sail to an island in hope of finding the treasure marked on their map. Once there, they spend days looking for it to no avail. Fate steps in when a drenching rainstorm pops up, and what could have been disaster quickly turns to joy as they make a surprising discovery. 'Ryan The Pirate' is the third in a series of adventure books dedicated to the author's three sons. Its rhyming words move the story along quickly, and the colorful illustrations with their bold brushstrokes bring the adventure to life. This is the third book for author Joseph Louis Garces III, who also wrote 'Garrett the Firefighter' and 'Tyler the Cowpoke.' Garces, a firefighter and arson investigator for the Oxnard Fire Department, previously served as an elementary school teacher. He is a graduate of Southern Utah University. He and his wife, Taira, live in Santa Paula with their three boys. Illustrations were created by Bethaney Abercrombie, who taught junior high school art for years after earning a degree in art education from Brigham young University and a master's degree in art education from Northern Arizona University. She is now a foster mom. She and her husband and five children live in Gilbert, Ariz.
