X Artists' Books is pleased to announce Mad Clot on a Holy Bone: Memories of a Psychic Theater, the first published collection of the work of playwright and artist Asher Hartman and his Gawdafful National Theater company. Hartman's plays mix historical metaphors and blur the boundaries of theater-based performance. As Janet Sarbanes writes in her introductory essay: “The frame—whatever it may be—simply cannot contain all the questions, life experience, and language Hartman and his actors jam into it. It fills to overflowing and explodes.”

BWW Review: Ottawa Musicals' ROBIN HOOD is Fun for the Whole Family Photo BWW Review: Ottawa Musicals' ROBIN HOOD is Fun for the Whole Family
by Courtney Castelino - Dec 31, 2019

I was invited to attend Ottawa Musicals' opening night performance of Robin Hood at the Gladstone Theatre. Each holiday season, Ottawa Musicals puts on a pantomime performance specifically geared to families. This production of Robin Hood is full of song and dance numbers, as well as plenty of jokes (some for the kiddies; some for the adults). The story, written by Mark Allen - who also plays Little John - has a traditional Robin Hood plotline, but adds a couple of oddball characters for good measure.

BWW Album Review: BAND GEEKS EP Marches To Its Own Drum Photo BWW Album Review: BAND GEEKS EP Marches To Its Own Drum
by Amanda Prahl - Jan 18, 2019

In 2010, the musical comedy Band Geeks premiered at Goodspeed, and now, almost nine years later, its score is finally available for listening. The EP of Band Geeks features seven of Mark Allen, Gaby Alter, and Tommy Newman's catchy songs. While it's very clearly a product of its time - that late 2000s/early-Glee era pop sound - every song is funny and earnest with charm to spare.
