Way of the Word: Poems to Plays Encore Performances

REPUBLIC Worldwide-in collaboration with Everywhere Theatre Group-presents Way of the Word: Poems to Play Encore Performance

On April 12th, 2010, friends, family, and fans of theater along with new and repeat guests from the first Way of the Word: Poems to Plays packed Bar on A to see the encore performances of Pages from a Course in General Linguistics (by Lonely Christopher, directed by Teddy Nicholas), Scrabble or Nietzsche (by Marissa Forbes, directed by Chase Voorhees), and Big Talk (by Katie Przybylski, directed by Leah Winkler).

It was an honor working with Everywhere Theatre Group and I would like to not only thank the directors/founders of ETG but also T. Ramon Campbell, Tricia Cramer, and Kristopher W. Imperati, Dan Whalen, Mary Hynes, David Weinheimer, Nikki Dillon, Rachel Pearl, and Gary Ferrer for transforming the poems into exceptional works theater.

A special thanks to Bar on A for opening up their great space to us and allowing REPUBLIC and ETG the freedom to transform the space into a wonderful place to perform and bring people together to share their love of words.

Pages from a Course in General Linguistics

Teddy Nicholas of ETG

Scrabble (or Nietzsche)

Big Talk

REPUBLIC thanks Everywhere Theatre Group

So often the word is not considered a form of visual art, rather a limited form of emotional expression. The word, in any manifestation, crosses numerous mediums and passions; not only can writing transform one’s thoughts on any subject but it can transcend concepts of life itself. REPUBLIC Worldwide generated the “Way of the Word” program to represent the energy of words in many forms. Poetry was a fitting place to begin but REPUBLIC Worldwide possesses the goal to continue to adapt, revolutionize and spread the love of all embodiments of the word, thus the birth of “Poems to Plays.” Marissa Forbes wanted to expose the accessibility of poetry by adapting three original poems from the event anthology into three one-act plays and the featured poets, Lonely Christopher and Katie Przybylski, were excited for the chance to join Forbes in morphing their poetry into visual enactments. The main concept for “Way of the Word” is that words can take any direction and make any connection, so each poem-to-play speaks to the relationship between influential linguists, philosophers, and poets to our modern day appreciation of the art of the word. REPUBLIC Worldwide was honored that the talented and gracious members of Everywhere Theatre Group wanted to collaborate on this project. The actors and directors have put in exceptional efforts and the dual event was a wild success and we look forward to creating “Way of the Word” events that show how the word can morph and move in any/all directions.

All pictures by Sean McGurn, check out more pictures from the event and information about more events and services by REPUBLIC Worldwide at

Copies of Way of the Word Poetry Anthologies are still available for $10, please email if you're interested in purchasing a wonderful collection of poetry for a good cause. We are donating 10% of every anthology sold to READ (Reading for Excellence and Discovery)—a foundation that promotes literacy by pairing qualified high school tutors with elementary students who demonstrate below grade level reading skills.

Peter Steele, Type O Negative Singer, Dead At 48-Drew Kassl

"Treat each other the way you'd like to be treated" - Pete Steele

Type O

TYPE O NEGATIVE manager Mike Renault has confirmed to CBS News that the band's frontman, Peter Steele, has died. In an email, Renault said, "Peter passed away last night. As of now it appears to have been heart failure. That's all the details we have right now."

According to unconfirmed reports, Steele had been ill for days leading up to his death.

TYPE O NEGATIVE's web site left a message to their fans this morning around 5:15 a.m. It read, "The forums have been re-opened. Please play nice and expect statements from the band and family later today. Thank you for your understanding and support."

Steele was born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York. He stood 6' 7" (201 cm) tall, and had a low, bass-heavy voice, which was one of the most recognizable features in TYPE O NEGATIVE's music.

Before forming TYPE O NEGATIVE, Steele played for the metal group FALLOUT and the thrash band CARNIVORE. [Blabbermouth]

Type O Negative's final tour ran from October 16, 2009 at Starland Ballroom to Halloween in Detroit, Michigan. The NYC show took place October 22nd at Nokia Theatre (right in the middle of CMJ). Two days after that they played a show at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, New York. That's where HardTimes.Ca caught up with Pete Steele for a revealing video interview that included such topics as Pete's recent sobriety and religion. In it they discuss why Josh Silver wasn't playing keyboards on that particular tour. Pete says, Josh was too busy with his family and working on his "plan b". "He's smart. I wouldn't depend on me 6 months ago either." It ends with the "final words" quoted above. A must watch for any Type O and Carnivore fan - especially in light of today's tragic news. It's below with footage from the show too...

An MP3 from Damian 'Pink Eyes' Abraham's side project Millenial Reign - Drew Kassl

words by BBG, photos by Andrew Frisicano

DOWNLOAD: Millenial Reign - Luminous Veil (MP3)

Fucked Up at MWTX, 3/20/10

Fucked Up

A389 Records have released their new label sampler, downloadable to one and all, with some fierce and antisocial hardcore, a good portion of which is currently unreleased. The free comp features faves like Integrity, Pulling Teeth (the previously discussed "Grudgeholder") Gehenna, Ringworm, Seraphim (we posted one track, a second appears on the comp), Gluttons (the previously posted "Point Break"), The Love Below, Triac, Hatewaves (we posted one track, includes a second hilarious track "Facebook Abuser"), Oak... the list goes on and on. Download it now with the code "A3892010".

One of the more notable bands (that I didn't just rattle off) from that compilation is the Fucked Up side project known as Millenial Reign:

After five years of promising each other that they would start a "clevo" style band [ED: as in Cleveland hardcore like Integrity, Ringworm, Pale Creation, etc] one day, Jordan (ex No Warning) and Damian (Fucked Up) finally just said fuck it and did it with the help of Jesse (ex No Warning). This band is about old friends getting together and playing heavy music again.
The project is not a new one though. According to A389 label head (and Pulling Teeth guitarist) Dom who said that the recording "was supposed to come out years ago on another label but fell through the cracks." Download the first Millenial Reign track from the forthcoming Bones... Dust... Nothing 7" above.

Fucked Up played a bunch of shows at SXSW including the BrooklynVegan day party at Emo's on 3/17, the previously mentioned surprise show on Beerland's patio on 3/18, and the MWTX Party on the rainy/freezing Saturday (3/20) (with Gwar). Not-yetpublished sets of pictures from the latter two, below...

REPUBLIC Worldwide-in collaboration with ETG-opening night of "Way of the Word: Poems to Plays": Success!

REPUBLIC Worldwide—in collaboration with Everywhere Theatre Group—presented the first installment of “Poems to Plays,” the second “Way of the Word” event, on Monday April 5th, 2010. Bar on A was filled to the brim with old and new friends, all eager to see the adaptations of three poems from the first annual REPUBLIC poetry anthology into three one-act plays. It was an amazing time for all and everyone left very pleased with the night, so come to our encore event April 12th, 2010, 8-11pm at Bar on A.

Some of the crowd

Playwright/producer: Marissa Forbes

First up was the experimental play, Pages From a Course in General Linguistics, adapted from For Example by Lonely Christopher and directed by Teddy Nicholas. T. Ramon Campbell performed his monologue regarding the concept of linguistics with passion and poise while Tricia Cramer progressed from a beautiful secretary into a frightful femme fatal and then Kristopher W. Imperati gave it his all with his dueling monologue about the insanity and humor of language.

Pages from a Course in General Linguistics

Next up was Scrabble (or Nietzsche) by Marissa Forbes, adapted from the poem of the same name, directed by Chase Voorhees. It’s a philosophical comedy that literally plays with words and thought. Dan Whalen was an excellent Friedrich Nietzsche—full of insightful wittiness and Mary Hynes was a hilarious Scrabble opponent.

Scrabble (or Nietszche)

The performances concluded with Katie Przybylski’s poem adapted into her play, Big Talk, directed by Leah Winkler. David Weinheimer, Nikki Dillon, Rachel Pearl, and Gary Ferrer performed their romantic search on the subway for Walt Whitman with zeal in their cascading voices.

Big Talk

If you were one of the unfortunate ones who missed the opening night of this event or would love to check it out again, the encore performance is Monday April 12th, 2010. Same time (8-11pm), same place (170 Ave. A), same line up, and same drink specials ($2 Yuengling/$3 well)!

Support Create For A Cause

Tomorrow is the 16th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. In memory of the one million people who were killed, Create for a Cause would like to raise money for food and school fees for the children at Gisimba Orphanage. The genocide left thousands upon thousands orphaned and Gisimba Orphanage was one of the few sanctuaries during that time, saving over 400 children. Gisimba currently houses approximately 200 kids ranging from babies to teens while supporting an additional 100 who are in foster care. Ten years ago, almost all were genocide victims, but many of the newer arrivals have been orphaned by AIDS. Because their parents were HIV+, a number of the orphans are also infected.

100% of the t-shirt sale proceeds will go towards food and school fees at Gisimba Orphanage. The goal is to raise $4000 for Gisimba Orphanage.
We received more of Jon Theiss' previously sold-out, popular t-shirt design in more colors! Thanks to Save Khaki for donating the super-soft tees and to Lincoln Mayne for volunteering to silkscreen them.

We are also currently raising more funds for AFEM, South Kivu's Women Media Association which focuses on reporting on sexual violence in the Democratic Repubic of Congo and have a few more tees available too!

Please check out these awesome tees and forward along to your friends!
