You'd be hard-pressed to find a busier man in the industry than Vince Tanada. Now in his 16th year as the president and founding artistic director of the Philippine Stagers Foundation (PSF), he also serves as the company's creative heartbeat--writing and directing productions with a history of reaching far-flung viewers. Just when you think he's due for a well-deserved sabbatical, Tanada is back with a major theater project as though he was checking a mere deadline from his law office (yes, he's still an attorney). From the looks of it, there's no sign of the playwright letting up; in fact, 'Obra ni Juan' shows all the signs of another critical renown.

It's Halloween weekend and every dramatic personage and theatrical type we've ever encountered is caught up in the annual rush to find just the right costume for their holiday revelries (we confess we've never had the knack for coming up with Halloween get-ups - not since we went in drag to a party at the First Baptist Church as the age of 12…tongues were wagging, we are certain, but we lived to tell about it, so it couldn't have been that bad). In the meantime, there are all sorts of onstage happenings this weekend to keep you otherwise engaged should the difficulty of selecting your costume prove to be too much.

The limited Art-Edition will be published in two volumes, containing a total of 1,740 pages, and in the colors white, cardinal-red, black, and gold. The images are complemented by the artist's comments on his work as well as Bible verses from the revised Luther Bible 2017 from the German Bible Society. 'My father's dream will finally come true: Making THE WIEDMANN BIBLE accessible to everyone. We could not have asked for a better partner as a distributor than the German Bible Society,' says Martin Wiedmann, son of the deceased artist. Willy Wiedmann always wanted his Bible to become accessible for Christians around the world. Because certain technologies were not readily available, he was not able to publish it during his lifetime. He therefore buried his vision and kept his Bible hidden in his gallery's attic where it slipped into obscurity until his son revealed the artwork in 2014. '...I felt that my work gave them something special and cause a feeling of content and even some kind of happiness. Ergo my conscious told me, if only these few people already benefited from my work why shouldn't all Christians?' -From Willy Wiedmann's Bible Journal. In order to make this project happen, Martin Wiedmann will produce this unique Art-Edition while the German Bible Society will be responsible for copy editing as well as distribution and sales. 'THE WIEDMANN BIBLE is a very impressive artwork. It visually encourages people to engage with the Bible's content actively. We are very pleased to include this unique book into our repertoire,' says Reiner Hellwig, the German Bible Society's Chief Operating Officer. The limited Art-Edition will be published in German. You can reserve your copy on THE WIEDMANN BIBLE's website. Editions in English and Spanish will follow after the initial German publication. 'THE WIEDMANN BIBLE is another step for our mission foundation: Disseminating the Bible and the opportunity of education with the help of it. Since THE WIEDMANN BIBLE depicts the complete Old and New Testament in images it speaks all languages,' says Horst Scheurenbrand, Director of International Programs of the German Bible Society. In May THE WIEDMANN BIBLE started supporting the United Bible Societies' project which helps people learn how to read and write by means of the Bible. Parts of the proceeds will be donated towards this project. Other parts will be used towards the distribution of THE WIEDMANN BIBLE to make it accessible to everyone. About THE WIEDMANN BIBLE: THE WIEDMANN BIBLE was illustrated by the artist Willy Wiedmann. In 3.333 illustrations the complete Old Testament and New Testament is depicted in the format of a concertina folder. For 16 years (1984 - 2000) Willy Wiedmann worked on this Bible. He created it in his Polycon Painting Style. His work has a total length of approximately 1 mile.

In the early/mid-80s, Charlie Pickett and the Eggs were -- hands down -- the punk gods of South Florida. They anchored the Open Books' Land That Time Forgot compilation. They had college radio, when it was fomenting alternative as a genre, with 'If This Is Love (Can I Get My Money Back),' 'Overtown,' 'Marlboro Country,' massive press in NME, Melody Maker, Trouser Press, NY Rocker, and CMJ. The band caught the notice of REM's Peter Buck, who championed the band, and appears as a special guest on this See You In Miami, out August 17th on Y&T Records.

Titles are, as a rule, somewhat useless as labels go, so when I was invited to attend FIVE LESBIANS EATING A QUICHE, I suspected I might be in for a comedy, possibly a farce, and hopefully some sort of cult classic. I was delighted to discover that the play hits all those bases.

Leave it to the ambitious and creative people of Nashville's Actors Bridge Ensemble to continue the celebration of the company's 20th anniversary season with the presentation of a new and compelling play – The Nether by Jennifer Haley – which ushers audiences into the dystopian world that has evolved in the not-too-distant future. It's an intriguing choice, to be sure, and one which could be fraught with failure and pretension were it not for the superb production concept and vision of director/producer Jessika Malone, given the wherewithal by ABE producing artistic director and co-founder Vali Forrister to challenge audiences in every way possible and to upend all conventional thought with a production that continues to haunt me almost a week after seeing it.
