Tiffany Hsiung's Film THE APOLOGY to Premiere on PBS Documentary Series POV
by TV News Desk - Sep 20, 2018

United Nations researchers report that between 1931 and 1945, the Japanese military forced an estimated 200,000 to 400,000 women and girls into institutionalized sexual slavery.

Seventy years after their imprisonment, the surviving “comfort women” still await an official Apology from the government of Japan. (more...)

BWW review: Sierra Madre Playhouse Offers Brilliant Production of THE GIN GAME
by Don Grigware - Sep 10, 2018

D.L. Coburn's Pulitzer Prize winning The Gin Game with its focus on two elderly people in a run down nursing facility circa 1977 is rarely if ever revived in Los Angeles. Why? I'm not sure. It requires great actors, but LA does have them. Maybe it's the theme. Too depressing? No excuse! The play is a brilliant, thought-provoking work of art. On the surface it's exceedingly funny but underneath, a seriously disquieting potboiler for seniors. Loneliness, and insufficient finances for decent old age care create a bleak outlook. Currently onstage at the Sierra Madre Playhouse through October 6, real life husband and wife Alan Blumenfeld and Katherine James beautifully play Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey under the meticulous direction of Christian Lebano.

BWW Review: GOD IS DEAD AND APRIL'S GETTING MARRIED and A TWO WOMAN HAMLET Don't Fully Execute their Visions at Capital Fringe
by Sam Abney - Jul 23, 2018

Unfortunately, this is the kind of scenario that befalls two promising productions at the Festival: God is Dead and April's Getting Married and A Two Woman Hamlet. Neither is bad, per se, but each show fails at living up to the promise of their premises. (more...)
