The San Francisco Art Institute Presents WRONG'S WHAT I DO BEST, 4/24-7/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 16, 2014

The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), one of the most prestigious and oldest art schools in the nation, presents Wrong's What I Do Best, an exhibition transcending social, political and personal fault lines intent on provoking dialogue through the artists' fearless exploration of the deep and sometimes dark edges of our world. Working against both correctness and failure, Wrong's What I Do Bestrevels in repeated derailments to present the work of artists who commit themselves to unadulterated freedom of expression. Some of the artists unearth scorched histories or upset “natural” order, while others fling themselves headlong into the coming apocalypse. Characterized by illicit unrestraint and lack of critical judgment, the work occludes the artists' true selves. (more...)

BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2014

It's not every rock band or musical act that could successfully create musical based on its many widely varying songs. There has to be a certain uniformity, power and resonance to the music, all of the music, carrying through many songs, rather than just one or two 'greatest hits.' And they have to be songs that can be strung together to create a cohesive whole that works as a musical with a plot, story, characters, etc. If there's any proof that it can be done, and done smashingly well, it's found in We Will Rock You, the 'rock theatrical' created through the combination of British writer Ben Elton and the music of Queen.
