by Ellen Dostal - Jul 31, 2015

Baby boomers don't normally show their approval at the theater by leaping to their feet and giving standing ovations during a performance… unless they happen to be seeing A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN at Pasadena Playhouse. The power of remembrance combined with the powerhouse performances of Mary Bridget Davies (as Janis Joplin) and her crew - four dynamic supporting female vocalists and an eight piece kickass rock band - prove that the Queen of Rock 'n Roll can still conjure up a revolution in the hearts of her fans and get them on their feet in spite of themselves.

Poet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORANPoet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORAN
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Poet Jonathan Goh's recent publication, 'Eludoran: The Legend of Lorelei in a Geste of Grave Misconceptions' (published by Partridge Singapore) has earned the distinction of longest fantasy rhyming poem ever written in Singapore. Dedicated as a Tribute to his late grandfather, 'Eludoran' is a commentary of stereotypical fantasy fiction comprising three acts in 44 chapters. This numbering is not a coincidence; it is intended as a subtle reference of its subject matter since the number four in Chinese cultures is synonymous with death. Inspired by the works of earlier fantasy authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Brian Jacques, 'Eludoran' offers its audience a darker perspective into the world of animal fantasy. (more...)
