Dear BSR Subscriber,
We're bringing you a new monthly subscriber's exclusive.
Alaina and BSR writer Gail Obenreder at the premiere of 'Black Lodge' at Festval O22.
Welcome to our inaugural monthly BSR in the Wild update! This is our space to connect exclusively with you, our subscribers, about where our team is heading in the coming month (just like we shared our Fringe Festival itineraries with you in September). Look out for a BSR in the Wild email from me on the first Friday of every month.
Each BSR in the Wild missive will have three brief features: Find Us!, Neil's Nod of the Month, and Recommended Reading.
Find Us! is exclusive subscriber tips on which events and exhibitions our staff is heading to in the coming month.
Neil's Nod of the Month is a look forward to the upcoming BSR stories or reviews I'm most excited to read.
And finally, Recommended Reading is a quick, subscribers-only tip to contextualize the work we have coming up, placing upcoming articles in conversation with past stories, because our arts and culture scene is an ongoing citywide conversation.
If you enjoy these updates, let us know! And don't forget, our team relies on our readers. Be sure to support our staff with a donation.
Check out the first-ever BSR in the Wild updates below.
BSR executive director
This month, BSR editor-in-chief Alaina has two shows on the docket so far, and I've got one.
Those With 2 Clocks
WHEN: Tonight's opening! October 7, 2022
WHERE: The Wilma Theater
WHY: Alaina saw an early version of this work and loved it. Check out Recommended Reading for the scoop.
If We Never Get Better
WHEN: On view through December 10, 2022
WHERE: TILT Gallery
WHY: Gary Day's review of this group show has us thinking about what photographs can convey, especially when it comes to capturing slices of life and everyday struggles that people living with illness and disability face.
Modigliani Up Close
WHEN: On view through January 25, 2023
WHERE: The Barnes Foundation
WHY: Emily Schilling's article about Modigliani paintings -- and paintings that might be Modiglianis -- at the Barnes has me intrigued. I didn't know the term catalogue raisonné until I read this piece. Looks like I have a lot to learn about verification, and this is a great entry point.
Neil's nod of the month:
Alaina and Kyle gave me a peek at the October editorial calendar, and I am particularly excited for an essay by Anndee Hochman coming up this month which addresses disabilities and how our attitudes towards them can evolve. It's a topic I think about regularly for myself and my loved ones. Anndee's take will have you thinking, too.
Theories of comedy
Those With 2 Clocks, about to open at the Wilma, is the latest incarnation of a work that premiered as part of the 2019 High Pressure Fire Service at FringeArts. Alaina reviewed it at the time, writing that she hoped the show would get another run. Read this piece and find out why, and bring this review's lens with you if you head to Those With 2 Clocks.
Now that you've found us, fund us!
Stay in touch,
Neil & Alaina & Kyle
