BWW Reviews: Mediocre MARY POPPINS Lands at Theatre By the Sea
by Robert Barossi - Jul 28, 2014

When it comes to live theatre, there are many different ways to present it and at least two distinct camps. One is the minimalist, pared down production, often focused on story, dialogue, and character. The other is the big, highly technical spectacle filled with all sorts of theatrical magic Tricks.

And unfortunately, that's only the beginning of the production's weak spots. (more...)

Mid-Year Highlights in the Art World: Koons, Donovan, Minkisi and More
by Barry Kostrinsky - Jul 17, 2014

Half of 2014 is behind us. What was new and different, exciting and outrageous, unpredictable and surprising in the NY art world? That's right, not much. Like a large yacht the art world turns slowly. As usual, it seems like money is at the helm captaining the course of art history. This is not new; Leo and Peter Paul worked for the moneyed men of the day. In the past this would mean Princes, Kings and Popes. Now, money has let go of it's need for a title ( except for Sir Paul) and huddles around businessmen. Entertainment and luxury good CEO's, corrupt hedge fund a-holes that pay almost $2Billion in fines and drug dealers dress up their persona with art, cocktails parties and world class trips to stay firmly footed as the top dog in the art world.
