Even more exciting than that is the fact that love is clearly in the air for Henry and Eliza as their relationship continues to blossom. (more...)

I can't imagine a world without the music of Scott Alan. I first discovered his work by following Stephanie J. Block.

Today, fans can rejoice as they add Scott Alan's GREATEST HITS, VOL. 1 to their music collections. (more...)

BWW REVIEWS: AMAZING GRACE's World Premiere in Chicago: Sweet Sounds, Heavy Themes Close to Completion Review BWW REVIEWS: AMAZING GRACE's World Premiere in Chicago: Sweet Sounds, Heavy Themes Close to Completion
by Paul W. Thompson - October 20, 2014

Well, AMAZING GRACE is that show, and this expensive-looking, high-aiming show that's been in development since 2007, with book, music and lyrics by Christopher Smith (the book is co-written with the veteran playwright Arthur Giron) opened on Sunday night. So far, so good! (more...)
