Paula Poundstone to Perform at Cabaret Theatre, 4/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2014

Treehouse Comedy Productions in conjunction with Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT will present comedian Paula Poundstone Saturday, April 26th at the Cabaret Theatre. 25 years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country -- stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR's popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: 'Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.' Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: 'I peed my pants.' (more...)

Galveston, 1900, Indignities is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2014

Galveston: 1900: Indignities, Book One: The Arrival, by N.E. Brown, and S. L. Jenkins, is an exalted, heart-stirring work of fiction. It starts as Anna struggles to reconcile a tragic past and an uncertain future in Galveston, Texas. She has lost her husband, son, and a daughter. She decides it is time to leave Sandgate, England with her oldest daughter, Catherine. Anne attempts to start a new job at the Grand Opera house with disastrous consequences. The scheming begins after David Brooks gets her the job, and decides he has a ruse of his own. He is absolutely loathsome, and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. He could be classified as a modern day Jeffrey Dahmer. Their personal story, the early growth of Galveston, turn of the century crime and investigations, and the brewing hurricane that will wipe out much of Galveston are backdrops to a heartfelt story that includes love, murder, work ethics and values, different social classes and opportunities. The story develops into a tale of lasting friendship, pure love, betrayal, unending suspense, and tragedy. (more...)
