New Articles: West Side Story, Contemporary Directors & more

with No Comments

A bunch of new articles:

  • A New Chapter,” an interview with Guy Mandia Jr., who plays Action in the current national touring production of West Side Story, on the differences between the 1957 original and the 2009 Broadway reboot (Inlander, March 14)
  • Power of Youth,” a review of Lewis and Clark High School’s polished production of In the Heights (Inlander, March 14)
  • “Monster Movies” (sorry, subscription only), an extended review of four books in the University of Illinois’ Contemporary Film Directors series (Times Literary Supplement, March 20)
  • Two profiles for this year’s Best Of awards in the Inlander: One on Best Takeout (Red Dragon) and one on Best Lawyer (Andrea Poplawski) (Inlander, March 21)

In addition to the loose ends from the previous post, I’m also translating the next issue of AMG Driving Performance magazine and writing up interviews with Joyce Carol Oates and poet Major Jackson for an upcoming issue of the Inlander.
