BWW Review: Alfred's BROWN TALE Is Very Chicago and Very FunnyBWW Review: Alfred's BROWN TALE Is Very Chicago and Very Funny
by Perry Tannenbaum - Sep 20, 2017

Notwithstanding the lingering leeriness I feel about going to see them, one-person shows can be memorable and truly special. Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays, Frank Gorshin's Say Goodnight, Gracie and Colin Quinn's Long Story Short stand out as the best that I've seen by men, while I'd point to Julie Harris's Belle of Amherst, Lily Tomlin's The Search for Intelligent Life in the Universe, and Tova Feldshuh's Golda's Balcony as the best by women - plus two more at Spoleto this year, Avital Lvova's Angel and Ayodele Casel's While I Have the Floor.

Lesson's from a creative patch: Kids and Ceramics
by Barry Kostrinsky - Sep 5, 2017

The art world is large and has many subsets, satellites and stellar moments. Few are brighter than the light from children's art work.

Even though Kindegarden Klay is all the range in the contemporary ceramics world not much homage is paid to today's micro masters. Many great artists that fill the art world's canons realized the firepower of these young maestros. Often imitated and praised by the likes of Picasso, the German Expressionists and many others, what is that these pre-teens and pre-self conscious mini men and women seem to possess that so many try and unleash in their own work and why?
