A low lit stage, cynical and sluggish leading character, acoustic background music and realistic lyrics are only a few of the reasons why there's no musical more Israeli today than the Jerusalem based Incubator Theatre's fringe rap opera The City. Perhaps that's why for the past four years this show has become such a phenomenon and now not only has new dates for its national tour but also includes performances with its English version.

Amazon Adventure traces the extraordinary journey of 19th-century naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates—the most influential scientist you've never heard of—who provided “the beautiful proof” to Charles Darwin for his revolutionary theory of evolution by natural selection, the scientific explanation for the development of life on Earth. As a young man, Bates risked his life for science during his 11-year expedition into the Amazon rainforest. The film is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance, and, ultimately, success, drawing audiences into his fascinating study of animal mimicry, the phenomenon in which one animal adopts the look of another.

'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' by Robert K. Blechman Though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply. Dead Man Tweeting? What would you do if the spectral victim of a murder appeared at your door demanding you resurrect his case? Discovery of Willum Granger's severed body was the animating force behind Police Detective Arkaby's most troublesome case. Why is Granger back from the detached departed? The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak as Arkaby reluctantly accepts his ghostly challenge. Completing its first week of sales, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am,' a laugh-out-loud comic, mystery novel originally posted in real time tweets on Twitter continued its climb toward national best-selling Twitter mystery novel status. A creative innovator of the Twitter Fiction movement, Robert K. Blechman's novels are live-tweeted mystery narratives, now gathered into book form. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is compelling, entertaining, and shows off what can be done in the 140-character form with style and mastery. With send-ups of the mystery genre, social media conventions and cell phone behavior, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is a cornucopia of word play and comic misdirection stuffed with punny dialogue, clever character conditions, and a total lack of adherence to the old 'rules' of storytelling. Robert K. Blechman's delight in the language shows in every tweet - that is to say, every thread of the story. His plot is tight, tingling, and diverting. The three books of The Twitstery Twilogy (ie. Twitter Mystery) depict the exploits of the world's only tweeting detective, unreliable narrator that he is. He tweets his experiences in real time, and the fact that he tells his story in tweets, that is 140 characters at a time, shapes his interpretation of the crimes he investigates. About the Author Robert K. Blechman graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in English Literature and earned an MBA in finance and a Ph.D. in Media Ecology from New York University. He has held senior technology management positions at such iconic institutions as Columbia University Medical Center, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, HarperCollins Publishers, Olympia & York Real Estate Management, and CBS News and teaches courses in communication and media studies at Fordham University. 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' was preceded by national best selling Twitter novel Executive Severance, Book 1 of the Twitstery Twilogy (NeoPoiesis Press, 2011) which won The Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fiction and by The Golden Parachute, (Kindle eBook, 2016). Dr. Blechman continues to tweet at RKBs_Twitstery and discusses his Media Ecology musings and speculations at his blog, 'A Model Media Ecologist' at www.robertkblechman.blogspot.com. Reviews 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am' is not only a paean (not pain) to Twitter, but to mystery and time-travel stories as well, bringing us: twisted palindromes; just desserts spelt or spelled backwards; meditations on dreeting or tweaming which happens when sleep tweeting; and not just Farley but also Stuart Granger (stranger than true but true). And there are lots of memorable music references, too, including 'Torn Between Two Lovers,' one of my all-time favorite lame songs. But there's nothing lame about 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' Read and enjoy, and do keep in mind its injunction that 'though reality is not copy protected, fair-use stipulations do apply.' - Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates, Loose Ends, and Ian's Ions and Eons. 'The genre of Twitstery, established by Robert K. Blechman in his Executive Severance, turns to Phantwitsmagoria in the final book of his trilogy, 'I Tweet, Therefore I Am.' A detective story written in tweets takes readers into a crazy voyage to a mystic Caribbean island, somewhat reminiscent of H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau with an odd campus on it. This is most likely the only detective novel in the world, literally (oh, yes, twitterally) stuffed with Marshall McLuhan quotes. Adepts will appreciate the play of allusions, while detective novel fans will just enjoy the story full of irony and witty puns.' - Andrey Miroshnichenko, author of Human as Media: The Emancipation of Authorship. Also by Robert K. Blechman Executive Severance (2011) Executive Severance, the Twitstery Twilogy, Book 1, won the 2012 Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work from the Media Ecology Association. Police Detective Arkaby, a by-the-book procedural investigator so full of himself he tweets every particular of his investigation, confronts his most baffling case with the discovery of the completely severed body of a renown scientist and industrialist. His Twitter habit nearly costs him his own life at the hands an adversary who secretly follows his Twitter account. The Golden Parachute (2016) In The Golden Parachute, The Twitstery Twilogy, Book 2, Police Detective Arkaby receives an unlikely visitor from his past who sets him off on an international mystery quest. Does the secret of an eternal afterlife reside in a Caribbean medical school autopsy lab? Arkaby needs to find out before all of reality changes forever!

Golden Thread Productions, the first American theatre company devoted to the Middle East, presents a season that fosters real conversations about issues that matter. The 2018 mainstage season begins with the return of the West Coast premiere of Amir Nizar Zuabi's Oh My Sweet Land in an extended tour of Bay Area kitchens (March 1-30, 2018). Inspired by interviews with Syrian refugees, the production, which was called extraordinary by the San Francisco Chronicle, is directed by Torange Yeghiazarian and features Nora el Samahy. Each performance will be followed by food sharing and a community conversation. The second show of the 2018 season is the critically-acclaimed production of Hassan Abdulrazzak's Love, Bombs, and Apples, which will make its U.S. debut after two sold-out runs in London (April 19-May 6, 2018). The tour-de-force solo show features Asif Khan, who brings to life four men of Middle Eastern descent, each from different parts of the globe, all experiencing a moment of revelation. Directed by Rosemunde Hutt and presented in association with Turtle Key Arts, the comedy was heralded as a quartet of monologues with a profound ability to find bubbling humor in the most over-trodden tragedies by The Stage. The mainstage season culminates in the world premiere of award winning playwright Mona Mansour's We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War, directed by Evren Odcikin (November 16-December 16, 2018). A Middle East America National New Plays Initiative commission, the play is a literal conversation between an American woman of Arab descent and her nephew, who has enlisted in the American military. Structurally adventurous with a third of the play taking place in the Pacific Ocean, We Swim welcomes Mansour for her fourth and most ambitious production with Golden Thread. Love, Bombs, and Apples and We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War will both be presented at San Francisco's Potrero Stage (1695 18th Street), where Golden Thread is a resident company. The 3 Show Pass ($87) offers the best value and priority access to our 2018 Season. Each pass includes one ticket to each of the three mainstage productions at a 20% discount: goldenthread.org.

An astonishing discovery found jutting from an eroding coastal cliff on an island in the Chesapeake Bay in 2012 is challenging scientists' long-held theory about the first humans to inhabit North America – where they originated, and how and when they arrived. It points to an explosive theory: Ice Age people made an epic journey across a massive ice bridge spanning a frozen Atlantic about six thousand years before people trekked across what is now the Bering Strait. The extraordinary find could rewrite history and upend our understanding of early human migration. Using archaeology, geology and genetics, a new one-hour documentary follows the expedition and search to uncover new evidence that could unravel the 20,000-year-old mystery. The film uses re-creation and state-of-the-art CGI to bring to life the ancient frozen wilderness and the fearsome Ice Age beasts that once ruled our continent. ICE BRIDGE: THE IMPOSSIBLE JOURNEY premieres Wednesday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.

'Ride to Heaven: An Existential Theme Park Mystery,' a documentary film with elements of retro Americana and the history of Old Hollywood, will be available on demand through Time Warner Cable starting April 1, 2016. This coincides with the 55th anniversary of the planned opening of the Disney inspired theme park called Bible Storyland. 'Ride to Heaven' is a quirky documentary film that follows a Los Angeles art dealer, Harvey Jordan, on his obsessive decade long quest to uncover the mystery of an ill-fated theme park designed by Disney creatives and backed by Jack Haley (Tin Man 'The Wizard of Oz'). The 220-acre park was to open April, 1961 in Southern California and intended to compete with Disneyland. The theme park blended the imagination of an Ex Disney VP (Nat Winecoff) and a Disney animator (Bruce Bushman) with themes from biblical times. The park was to feature Rides to Heaven and Hell, Chariot Races and eateries selling lion burgers. (Hear a reading of the 1960 Press Release at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zst8ekmOOm0) 'We are very pleased to have our film available to a much wider audience that will surely enjoy this story that includes elements of Disney, The Wizard of Oz, Hollywood films and Yo-Yo's,' said Harvey Jordan, the film's main character. 'You will have to see it for yourself to understand the common link between all these cultural icons. I'm sure you will be drawn into the mystery just like I was.' Stephanie Hubbard, the film's director, is a Los Angeles-based author and award winning documentary film editor & producer whose work has shown on PBS, the Discovery Channel, and History Channel. Her latest production was the short film 'Improv Death Ice Age.' 'Creating Ride to Heaven,' says Hubbard, 'was a personal self discovery that mirrored Harvey's existential journey as he faced life's travails against the backdrop of the enveloping vision of Bible Storyland Theme Park. My love of films of the 1950's came in handy - films like 'Ben-Hur' and 'The Ten Commandments' were pivotal to the development of the park. Exploring the politics of religion was also a fascinating aspect for me.' 'Ride to Heaven' includes interviews with Charles Phoenix (pop culture humorist), Rev. Malcolm Boyd (author, prominent theologian), Buddy Bregman (producer for Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland) as well as many scholars and experts on theme park history. The film's co-star, Debi Derryberry, is a prolific film & TV Voice Actor (Jimmy Neutron, Speedy Alka Seltzer, Disney & Pixar films.) 'Ride to Heaven: An Existential Theme Park Mystery' distributed by Cargo Film & Releasing, 611 Broadway, Suite # 630, New York, NY 10012, (212) 995-8139, www.cargofilm-releasing.com. An extended version of this film, with extras, is available on DVD thru the website. This film, previously released as 'Bible Storyland, The Movie' has screened at numerous Film Festivals and named Best Documentary at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. Website: www.RideToHeaven.com 'A marvelous Drama, wrapped in a Comedy, folded around a Documentary, twisted into a Detective story and squeezed into a Valentine.' - Chris Epting, Pop Culture Author 'A real investigative eye-opener and fun to watch!' - Huell Howser, Host/Producer of 'California's Gold'
