Review: THE SOUND OF MURDER Echoes Within the Walls of Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Mar 22, 2019

THE SOUND OF MURDER by William Fairchild premiered in London in 1959, making the plot somewhat predictable now, given the abundance of murder mysteries written and being produced on local stages. But this one set play is exactly the kind of British murder mystery that Theatre 40 audiences enjoy, especially with the company's designers onboard who always create a visually stunning production. Skillfully directed by Adrian Cohen to keep the action interesting and a lot more than just a lot of talking heads with British accents, the cast of THE SOUND OF MURDER includes Roslyn Cohn, Gabriel Olivas, David Hunt Stafford, Peter Trencher, David Westbay and Kate Whitney. And why that title? There's some audio equipment involved that turns out to be a pivotal prop in the investigation! (more...)

Songwriter Ryan Pollie Premieres New Video With NPR Music, Announces New Self-Titled Album Out 5/17
by BWW News Desk - Mar 21, 2019

ANTI- Records and Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Ryan Pollie are pleased to announce his brand new, forthcoming self-titled studio album. Inspired by the warm, inviting sounds of '70s singer-songwriters like Jackson Browne, Carole King, and Graham Nash, Ryan Pollie (pre-order) is the most personal music of the seasoned songwriter's career to date. Leading the showcase is the video for “Aim Slow,” a touching clip featuring childhood home videos and footage taken during Ryan's recent chemotherapy. The song is the lyrical centerpiece to the album and addresses the paradoxical nature of life and death, good and evil, yin and yang.
