New Chapter Press Announces THE 87 RULES FOR COLLEGENew Chapter Press Announces THE 87 RULES FOR COLLEGE
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2015

'The 87 Rules For College' - the raunchy, practical and useful book of rules for gaining the ultimate college experience - has been released by New Chapter Press. Written by Jake Shore and Drew Moffitt, 'The 87 Rules For College' is an outlandish and eccentric college guide that shows would-be and current students how to have the most fun and succeeding while staying out of trouble during your college years. Rules include how to drink in moderation, while also having a good time, how to throw the best parties, how to approach picking professors, dealing with roommates as well as sex, porn, hooking up, drinking, drugs, health, social media and more. 'Many other college rulebooks are too preachy and boring, but 'The 87 Rules for College' reads more like a post-modern onslaught of form and comedic elements than a rulebook, and the humor is able to provide useful information in an accessible and positive way,' says Shore. 'The book shows readers what not to do, and how to avoid common things that gets kids thrown out, flunked out and displeased about college. This book is advice.' 'The 87 Rules for College' will get you fifty steps ahead when on campus,' said Moffitt. 'You only do this dance once, and if you don't know the moves, how the dance goes down and the ways to make it the best it can be, you're selling yourself short.' Jake Shore is an English professor at Wagner College. Shore's play entitled Down the Mountain and Across the Stream won the New York International Fringe Festival's Overall Excellence in Playwriting Award in 2013. The play was also a Top Ten Choice for the 2013 Stanley Drama Award, and is published by Indie Theater Now. His short stories have been published in Calico Tiger, Fiction365, Halfway Down The Stairs, Litro, and the Pitkin Review. He completed his MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College. Shore lives in Brooklyn, New York. Drew Moffitt is an entrepreneur best known as the creator of the viral Forever|NOT relationship betting app. Born in Princeton, N.J., he is a graduate of Wagner College and now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The ambiance of a theater is just as reliant on the crowd as it is on the actors putting on the production. (more...)

The two performers, James Long and Marcus Youssef, skim the surface of American culture and even ask the audience for suggestions. But after luring us with the sort of 'Canadian Nice' that we expect from our neighbors up north, the pair's conversation lurches into darker territory; and then it goes into overdrive. (more...)

Ashley Brown is no stranger to the stage, having originated the role of MARY POPPINS in New York City after making her Broadway debut in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST a few years earlier. Ashley is also no stranger to Dallas, as she is returning to town after recently being here for an engagement with the Dallas Symphony, not to mention a visit to Music Hall at Fair Park with the MARY POPPINS national tour several years ago. In addition, Ashley is not quite a stranger to me, as we have a quirky New York connection! Almost a decade ago, I briefly held a management position at Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre, where I'd leave Ashley a case of water in her dressing room weekly. I recently had the chance to catch up on Ashley's new adventure in THE SOUND OF MUSIC playing a role she wasn't sure she was ready for! Check out our conversation below. (more...)

SCREAM QUEENS, at its core, is an absurd horror satire. It infrequently satirizes the genre in which it is indebted, and instead focuses a lot of its absurd humor on millennials and the adults who don't care about them. Up until this point, the show has remained consistent, but tonight, it loses its sense of self. The humor falls flat and there are no stakes to make any of it dramatic. (more...)

Unfortunately, all of the cardboard boxes were taken, but I did snag an antique chair not unlike the one my mom brought up from our old basement anytime we had more than ten dinner guests. I was one of fifteen audience members, some of whom were seated on the floor, sipping wine out of opaque cups; others glancing around, trying to, like me, figure out how this production would unfold in such a tiny room. The two loud men outside the doors who I thought were being rude, clunking about doing something laborious and inconsiderate, where in fact the two main characters of 'For Christmas,' trying to get a couch up The Stairs and into, what I soon realized was Jesus Christ's studio apartment. The show simply began. (more...)
