I wrote a crossword

I'm into writing crosswords, and here is one. Solve it; that would make me happy!

It's New York Times style (sort of) which means: (1) clues aren't cryptic, (2) proper names are ok, (3) answers may contain more than one word, and (4) there are theme answers.

Joint credit for the theme for this one (especially the bit with the circles) goes to Michael Vincent.
