BWW Reviews: Crazy Russian Adventures in Imaginary Beasts's KNOCK!BWW Reviews: Crazy Russian Adventures in Imaginary Beasts's KNOCK!
by Alex Lonati - Sep 29, 2014

Imaginary Beasts consistently puts out what they call 'adventurous' and I would call 'ludicrous' theatrical productions, pushing boundaries, disregarding conventions (gender bending is a staple of their shows), and twisting reality. Their most recent production was Knock, a devised premiere combining upwards of twenty-five plays, short stories, and poems by Russian author Daniil Kharms. (more...)

Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!Photo Flash: The Big Apple Circus Comes to Town - at a Lincoln Center Near You!
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

The Big Apple Circus is a gentle and innocent circus, not aimed at those addicted to keypads or raised on 'Grand Theft Auto', but mostly for those too young to know they might want to shoot and kill virtual villains for their entertainment, or those old enough to recall when they could be entertained by being given a gift of a smile. Notwithstanding that, as circus artists go, these are as good as one sees anywhere. The contortionists will astonish; the quick change artists delight and amaze. The trapeze act will have your heart in your mouth. Still this is unpretentious, one-ring circus presented with modest fuss and bother, and no smoke or mirrors. It will not deafen you with its volume or blind you with its lights - although there are both light and live music - but it will entertain you, as will the animated children around you. (more...)

THE JOE SHOW Debuts 12/14 on Investigation DiscoveryTHE JOE SHOW Debuts 12/14 on Investigation Discovery
by TV News Desk - Dec 1, 2014

For more than 20 years, Joe Arpaio has used fear, crime and his role as sheriff in Maricopa County, Ariz., to make himself the most famous law enforcement officer in the world. Racism, sex crimes, illegal immigration, first amendment rights and multiple deaths at the hands of his employees are all issues Arpaio faces and spins. Most recently, he announced a lawsuit against President Obama and others over his executive action on immigration. He's famous, he's outrageous, he may be dangerous... and it's all just part of THE JOE SHOW, a tragic, yet uniquely American tale of historic significance. A critically acclaimed feature-length documentary film from Randy Murray Productions, THE JOE SHOW is a shocking and wildly entertaining project about America's most controversial sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and The Ringmaster approach he takes to modern media, politics, and law enforcement. THE JOE SHOW makes its world television premiere on ID on Sunday, December 14 from 5-7PM ET as a two-hour special event, under the ID FILMS banner. (more...)
