Following the series of new female writers and the series of new male writers, WOW comes together in a World Premiere reflecting the wacky world that both men and women have created. What do the genders do to each other and really think of each other? Come along for the battle of sexes showdown.
A comical look at the redeeming potential of tolerance in the face of life and an often severely dysfunctional society.

"…(a) fascinating study of the Sistine Chapel. […] Like the best art historians, the authors give us a fresh context for the times, never hesitating to make contemporary parallels. […]This is a stimulating exploration that makes familiar masterpieces seem strange and new." -- Los Angeles Times

Michelangelo's Forbidden Messages in the Heart of the Vatican
by Benjamin Blech and Roy Doliner.

Since Michelangelo finished painting the Sistine Chapel, billions of people have come to see one of the largest fresco paintings on earth. There are those who look at this work and and see something differently. We are very pleased to share with you an evening to explore Michelangelo's education though Lorenzo de Medici's court along with great thinkers and artists of the Renaissance.

Join us with Roy Doliner and take a new look at what could be interpreted as embedded messages in one of the most famous pieces of art in the world.

"Just as the work of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel changed forever the world of art, so will this book change forever the way to view and, above all, to understand the work of Michelangelo!"
-- Enrico Bruschini, Official Art Historian for the U.S. Embassy in Rome

"This book of astounding revelations is built on careful scholarship, lucid exposition, and it is, above all, compelling reading." -- Jonathan Harr, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Lost Painting and A Civil Action
