BWW Review: Theatre In the Round's A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE is a Well-Directed, -Acted, and -Designed Production of a Classic American Tragedy
by Jill Schafer - Jan 17, 2017

If you're a fan of American theater classics, get yourself to Theatre in the Round in the West Bank neighborhood of Minneapolis. Their excellent production of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge features strong performances from the whole cast (particularly the leads), a really cool set with vintage props, and great staging in their intimate in-the-round setting. This completely engrossing and tragic story of flawed and very real characters navigating hard times and tricky family relations in 1950s working class Brooklyn will get under your skin. It's one of those experiences that makes you feel like you've been on a journey with these characters, one that's hard to shake when you leave the theater. It's probably the second best play I've seen at TRP. Don't let this one fly under your radar. (more...)

THE FINALE'S MASTER STROKE is Published by Linda Leven
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2017

In this shocking but profoundly philosophical novella, Linda, through an appalling tale of intense drama follows four women artists as they struggle to achieve recognition in their chosen fields. In this shocking but profoundly philosophical novella, 'The Finale's Master Stroke,' Linda, through an appalling tale of intense drama follows four women artists, three photographers and a writer, as they struggle to achieve recognition in their chosen fields. It is, in essence, a tale of those who grope in the dark and are finally driven to The Wall, never succeeding ... and those who 'make it.' Fame, eminence, immortality-these are the only goals that drive Anne Sinclaire, an aged woman still seeking success in her ebbing life. But, is it too late for Anne to discover some astonishing talent hidden within her? Can she become a great painter, writer, composer, singer, or dancer? Or is she ordinary, destined to be a nobody-her name and life obliterated by death. This appears to be Anne's destiny until an electrifying revelation strikes, a revelation unmasked by the populace and affirmed by three needy artists who wander into her life. The work is a study of struggling artists, young and old, and what it really takes to reach a defined level of success in today's super-connected world of instant media coverage and the worldwide internet where everyone has been liberated to freely toss his own mediocrity or genius into the immense conglomeration of voices around the world, all competing to 'make it.'
