Rogovoy Report For August 15, 2014

Jason Isbell was a key member of Southern-rock group Drive-By Truckers. He then struck out on his own as a solo performer, and he’s been riding high on critical acclaim for last year’s solo album, “Southeastern,” which has been described as his “Blood on the Tracks” or “Tunnel of Love” in its searing intimacy and stripped-down intensity. The album garnered Isbell nominations for Best Song, Best Album, and Artist of the Year from the Americana Music. NPR rock critic Ken Tucker and American Songwriter magazine called it the best album of 2013.

Herbert Wolff Reviews "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)"

When classifying a humorous play, we generally label it into one of two categories: comedy or farce.  In comedy we recognize people or events to which we can relate, understand and even laugh at ourselves.  Farce, on the other hand, is an exaggerated humor or ridiculous action, leading us to laugh at what is being said and performed on the stage with little relationship to our lives or personal behavior.
