L. Sheldon Oldford Releases 'Omittamus Descendam: The Biblical First Contact'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 22, 2016

L. Sheldon Oldford, author of the new book 'Omittamus Descendam: The Biblical First Contact', was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, and became a US citizen in October 2002. He currently has over sixteen years in law enforcement as a corrections officer, police officer and as a detective. L. Sheldon Oldford first began a career as an evangelical preacher during his young adult life and attended a Bible college in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has been both a youth and an evangelistic pastor. He later became intrigued by the ancient astronaut theory, which caused him to examine the Bible with a more realistic and investigative view. His interest in this theory brought him to question the very character of the biblical God as it relates to today's science and technology. Currently, L. Sheldon Oldford still works as a police officer and resides in Southern Arizona with his wife, Angie, of twenty-one years. They have five children. (more...)

BWW Review: WICKED LIT 2016 Continues to Thrill and Chill Audiences During its 8th Annual Production
by Shari Barrett - Oct 11, 2016

Each October for the past several years, I have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming the Halloween Season by attending WICKED LIT, produced by Unbound Productions at the spooky Mountain View Mausoleum & Cemetery in Altadena. This year audiences are being treated to three World Premiere short plays staged at various locations indoors and outside (yes, it is dark as you walk among the standing headstones with werewolves howling in the distance). When you arrive, you are issued a program on which there is either a red, yellow or green sticker denoting in which group you will view the three plays with a running time of almost 3 hours, including a pre-show and two intervals during which all audience members meet at Camp Mountain View, the outdoor staging area for the evening.

Critic's Choice: If Life's A Cabaret, Why Aren't You At The Theater?
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 10, 2016

Winter's apparently over - it's in the mid-70s, balmy and windy, as we write this - and even before Spring pops up all over, there's an amazing amount of good theater to be found in the Nashville area. In fact, there's so much to choose from that you have absolutely no excuse staying alone in your room. Instead, in the wise and wonderful words of Sally Bowles, life is a cabaret and you're far more likely to find that out in the darkened confines of a theater, where magic and mayhem is bound to happen.

BWW Dance Review: RIOULT DANCE NY Conjures Shades of Valiant Women
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jun 22, 2016

Mr. Rioult is a compelling storyteller. In 'Iphigenia' - which begins with a glimpse of the gruesome future - he confronts the tragedy head on by making it clear that the designated sacrifice is unaware of her fate. Watching Clytemnestra - Charis Haines, who handily walks away with the piece - batter a commanding Brian Flynn as Agamemnon reminds one that there is nothing so frightening as a mother whose child has been threatened.

BWW Review: HISTORY LIT Presents Three Immersive Plays at Perfectly Matched Locations Around the Pasadena Museum of History
by Shari Barrett - Jul 19, 2016

When you check in for HISTORY LIST, you will receive a color-coded program which indicates the group with whom and in what order you will walk around the site to witness the plays. The entire audience returns to a central meeting point in front of the historical Fenyes Mansion, led by time period costume-matched Tour Guides who go on to appear as characters within the play at the location where they have led you. Try to stay as close to these guides as you walk with them as their comical banter is not to be missed. I truly enjoy asking them questions as we walked, knowing their improvised answers will perfectly match the characters they are playing. (more...)

BWW Review: WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S LONG LOST FIRST PLAY: A Cauldron Full of Belly Laughs at the Folger from the Reduced Shakespeare Company
by Ellen Burns - Apr 26, 2016

There is but poor substitute for a trio of fools on a romp to entertain; nay, but it is futility at its finest to resist the siren call of slapstick's song. Anyone else have the urge to, as I call it, "Shakespeak" after an evening of Shakespeare? No? Just me? Ok, well no matter. In any pentameter, the Reduced Shakespeare Company's (RSC) Reed Martin, Austin Tichenor and Teddy Spencer are very, very funny; fearless, quick witted, masters of quick change and, most importantly, having a blast on stage, which means the audience is likely to have fun too. The RSC has a long history of taking gargantuan themes (think American history, The Bible, Hollywood) and mining them for laughs, and, inspired by a 2010 visit to the Folger, creating a work that covered the Shakespearean universe in one "holy grail" of a play, seemed an obvious mission to them.
