    The 92nd Street Y has gathered scholars and authorities to discuss the questions and issues raised in Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. What are the implications for religion and private faith when talk about God moves into pop culture, and popular entertainment becomes a mode of education?

    ROBERT L. SCHLIFF says: "myopic presentation of limited facts"
    "myopic presentation of limited facts"
    Overall

    Every speaker has pretty much the same bias:
    Pro Christian fundamentalism
    anti Dan Brown
    They present their limited viewpoint as facts
    They maintain that lack of proof means proof of lack - If there's no record of an event it never happened! IMVHO not worth hearing unless you have access to an alternate opinion.

    Edward says: "Why the Music?"
    "nothing new"
    Overall

    bad music blots out some of the reading and wastes minutes of listening time with no dialog at all. What is said is old news or badly researched. don't waste money or credits on this fecal mater.

    The Lachesis Passage, literally a fate that spins the web of life and determines its length, is a spellbinding adventure that whisks you into the medieval world of the good wizard Gelvon and his nemesis, the evil wizard Vandermast. You'll be mesmerized by this rock opera's captivating music and life-like characters as you travel from wooded enclaves to the towers of darkness.

    ROBERT L. SCHLIFF says: "Music slightly worse than prose..."
    "Music slightly worse than prose..."
    Overall

    Not worth the price of admission. Vague derivative story punctuated by BAD music with garbled and/or uninspired lyrics. The story story ends abruptly for no apparent reason.
