The Virgin Poet Brings Back Aesthetic Poetry in Public Eye
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

Poetry has been with the author who goes by the pseudonym of The Virgin Poet as a way of expressing in a spontaneous manner his ideas that have been thoroughly contemplated. Through poetry, he is able to pass the necessary moments away from society and in individualism to later reintroduce it filled with artistic airs (whenever he is making descriptions) what he has taken from society. Other times, he uses poetry to dress his personal or adopted Thoughts with aesthetic vigor, so that they can be seen in a more appealing way. (more...)

Pacific Symphony Orchestra to Mark 25th Anniversary with Violinist Joshua Bell & More, 9/25
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

Orange County, Calif.—Aug. 28, 2014—Pacific Symphony launches Music Director Carl St.Clair's landmark 25th-anniversary “season of giants” with classical music superstar, violinist Joshua Bell, plus two orchestral showpieces, a West Coast premiere and festivities fit for the grand occasion. Bell returns for his fifth performance with the Symphony (he last performed with the Symphony in May 2010) to celebrate the maestro and captivate audiences with the exciting, breakneck theme and stunning Romanticism of Alexander Glazunov's Violin Concerto. Interview Magazine may have summed up the remarkable violinist's playing best by saying, Bell “does nothing less than tell human beings why they bother to live.” The violinist's artistry is exemplified in his new music directorship of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, his release of 40 CDs since the age of 18, multiple television appearances and countless accolades.

VGI: OTOY Announced as Lead Diamond Sponsor at Cloud Gaming USA Conference for a Second Year
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

At OTOY, what we're most excited about and what we're promoting are very much one and the same. In the broader context, we're really excited about the increasing ubiquity of cloud-related technologies that are going to dramatically change the way consumers enjoy media and entertainment, including games. From an infrastructure standpoint, cloud service providers such as Amazon continue to beef up their hardware making increasingly capable graphics processing available for all who want them, localized in data centers around the world, which greatly helps latency issues. Cloud computing in general continues to see declining prices through industry competition. High-speed Internet in the US, while not as advanced as some Asian countries, continues to improve with Google Fiber bringing 1 Gbps Internet to a dozen cities. Cable and telco companies are gradually increasing speeds too. At the consumer level, technologies like the Oculus Rift and even Google cardboard - an ingenious way to turn ordinary smartphones into VR headsets - are fuelling advancements in the way games and entertainment is delivered.

by Matt Tamanini - Aug 25, 2014

In 1985, Larry Kramer's play 'The Normal Heart' debuted at The Public Theatre, and sent shockwaves through the theatrical community. The play was a current, powerful look at the quick-spread of the AIDS epidemic that was raviging the gay community in New York. In The New York Times, theatre critic Frank Rich said of the initial production, 'There can be little doubt that 'The Normal Heart' is the most outspoken play around - or that it speaks up about a subject that justifies its author's unflagging, at times even hysterical, sense of urgency.'

BWW Interviews: Back to the Exam Books for Mad Cows's THE HISTORY BOYS
by Justin J Sacramone - Aug 24, 2014

As schools are opening their doors and welcoming students back, class at the Mad Cow Theatre Company is also back in session with a production of Alan Bennett's 2005 Tony Winning Play, THE HISTORY BOYS. My review on the production, running through September 7th, will be up early next week. In the meantime, I was able to interview some of the cast members. Instead of your basic interview with straightforward questions, I kept with the spirit of Bennett's scholastic play by passing out the blue books with three open-ended questions about some of the themes from the play. Although these answers will not be graded, I am sure if Irwin took a glance at them he would not be regarding them as "abysmally dull". (more...)

SYTYCD Recap: Finalists Revealed; Dancers Perform Bway & 'Anything Goes'; Update w/ Pics
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 21, 2014

And then there were six. We are just two weeks away from the Season 11 (and possibly series) finale of 'So You Think You Can Dance,' and even though this isn't the six remaining dancers I thought we would have just a few weeks ago, that doesn't mean that the talent still on hand isn't as exciting as ever. With last week's surprising eliminations of Tanisha (that one still brings a tinge of anger) and Rudy, the field is slightly more open for dancers to claim a spot in the finale. Though Ricky is still the leader in the clubhouse in terms of guys, the girls' race is suddenly wide-open. (more...)

BWW Profile: Benedict Cumberbatch Emmy-Nominated Star of Stage and Screen
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 20, 2014

Though only 38 years old, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has already amassed an impressive list of credits on stage, on television, and on the big screen.
