Richard McEwan Pens Book to Teach Children About Caring for Foster AnimalsRichard McEwan Pens Book to Teach Children About Caring for Foster Animals
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2014

Author Richard McEwan says that if you teach children how to care for pets, they also learn also how to care for people. That's one of reasons why he recently wrote The Children's book 'The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples - The Rescue' newly released by Halo Publishing International. Inspired to write because of his grandchildren's love of books and he and his wife's love of fostering animals, the book introduces children to fostering a pet and tells a story of the rescue of a lost puppy. 'I hope that when a child sees a stray dog or cat, that they think about the story and how the puppy, Mr. Pupples, was found and saved,' says McEwan. 'Once a child finds a stray animal, their next step is to immediately get an adult involved.' An avid dog-lover who with his wife, Christie, has fostered about 50 dogs over a period of 5 years, McEwan is retired and cherishes their two dogs that they had originally fostered, and a cat that had been a stray kitten. He says fostering animals from your local animal shelter or SPCA is a good way to keep them from being euthanized. 'Pets are great companions. Not only are they fun to be with, they can help you get exercise,' say McEwan who enjoys taking his dogs for walks with his wife. 'And, who loves you more than your dog?' 'I think children will love this beautifully illustrated story with a great message about pet care,' said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina. You can purchase 'The Adventures of Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples - The Rescue' at http://www.HaloPublishing.com. It sells for $16.95. McEwan says he has written two more children's books with the same two characters - Sir Buddy and Mr. Pupples. They will be released at a later date. Biography: Richard McEwan retired to the Outer Banks of North Carolina after a long career in sales, marketing and advertising. He lives with his wife, Christie, and their two dogs, Buddy and River, one cat named Oyster and many photos of foster dogs. Together, McEwan and his wife, have three children and four grandchildren.

BWW Reviews: Playhouse Has a Right to 'Crow' About PETER PANBWW Reviews: Playhouse Has a Right to 'Crow' About PETER PAN
by Joseph Baker - Dec 8, 2014

Having witnessed the stultifying, bloated NBC production of PETER PAN LIVE (what were the 'powers that be' thinking would hold a child's attention span for three hours, however padded with yet more Peter Pan plugs from Walmart?), I was reluctant to attend Playhouse on the Square's annual production of the James Barrie children's classic. I am probably one of the handful of reviewers to recall the 1955 NBC production (and later one as well) with the legendary pairing of Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard (whose fruity, overly ripe 'Captain Hook' would make Johnny Depp's 'Jack Sparrow' seem more like a white collar executive). As an IPad-free child inured to black and white fare, it hardly mattered that Mary Martin was, to put it politely, mature; that the production values were clunky; that the wires and 'Tinker' herself were glaringly apparent. In short, I was captivated. Yet, Martin possessed the kind of spunk and spontaneity that made us children believe (not to mention that she had the kind of singing voice that made her a legendary Broadway performer, as evidenced by SOUTH PACIFIC and SOUND OF MUSIC). She could make a child want to fly. Allison Williams, last evening's 'Peter,' lacked that optimistic boyishness (though she had the tomboyish Hilary Swank look 'nailed') and, despite having a pleasant enough voice, often seemed out of breath; but Chrisopher Walken, whom I like and who I initially thought would be inspired casting, seemed to have wandered in from a cocktail party hosted by zombies. His dancing made that of the Monster in YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN seem as nimble as that of Fred Astaire. Despite the wonderful lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and despite the 'ear candy' musical score by Mark Charlalp and Jule Stein, those long, middle stretches in Neverland made me wonder if it would Neverend.

'Stars That Make A Difference' Book to be Released 2015, Says Author'Stars That Make A Difference' Book to be Released 2015, Says Author
by BWW News Desk - Dec 7, 2014

Fans of such celebrities as Daniel Radcliffe, Ellen Degeneres, Marie Osmond or Taylor Swift can take comfort in knowing that they will soon be able to read more positive details about their favorite stars. 'We're looking at launching the first book shortly after the beginning of the year,' author Randy Jernigan told a Denver, Colorado radio station in an interview last month. 'This book series is the result of a lot of hard work. Not just in interviews, research and writing, but when you're dealing with celebrities it seems as if you have endless meetings with their reps-attorney's, agents and pr people. Before we publish we have to get the 'all clear' from their people. I think we're only waiting on one last approval and then we go to press.' Writing about the private lives of celebrities has been Randy Jernigan's bread and butter for the last twenty-two years, doing magazine features on Tom Cruise, Brittney Spears, even Justin Bieber. But, according to Jernigan, you're not about to find those names in his book. 'I've been very selective about who is included in this book series,' explained the author. ''Stars That Make A Difference' is about celebrities that have good reputations for giving back. Those celebs known for caring about their fans and their communities. Not to disrespect the kid but you're not about to find a biographical sketch of Bieber in one of my books-just not gonna happen,' Jernigan told the interviewer. When Jernigan first announced that he would be publishing biographical sketches on Radcliffe and Degeneres, the online tabloid press had a field day. 'They attributed things to me that I never said and sensationalized what I did say and caused my book project to look like it was going to be a tell all piece about these really great people that I have a great amount of respect for. This project is a far cry from a tell all,' explained the author. In the radio interview Jernigan made mention of the work actor Daniel Radcliffe does freely for the 'Trevor Project' and that of Marie Osmond and her devotion to sick children and 'The Children's Miracle Network.' Other stars to be included in the series are Ellen Degeneres and Taylor Swift. Both know for their big hearts and giving to those in need. According to officials at Creative Partners Publishing, the book will be released digitally for the first year, then go to paperback. 'Stars That Make A Difference' will be available at Amazon's Kindle and other digital platforms early next year. (more...)

Out of the eerily emptied Terezin Ghetto established by the Nazis near Prague as a 'Jewish City' - which was in reality a way station to the death camps - a remarkable discovery was made at the close of World War II. The Children of Terezin, in the face of unspeakable horror and at constant risk of execution, built a thriving world of creativity and beauty.Words on a page can have deep meaning, but actually meeting people about whom those words were written can create memories that last a lifetime. Terezin's prisoners included more than 15,000 children. Fewer than 100 survived.

BWW Reviews:  Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROLBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spikes the Eggnog with A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Joseph Baker - Dec 12, 2014

As my hand was turning to mincemeat while writing personal notes in Christmas card after Christmas card, I persevered, knowing that at the end of my travails there would be a reward: A much anticipated performance of Theatre Memphis' annual 'gift' to Memphis, Charles Dickens' venerable A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I must admit: I have not attended every performance of that classic since its inception. I have, however, infrequently stopped to hang my wreath at its door; and I've seen some fine 'Ebeneezers' over the years (I recall a former teaching colleague, Tom Ford, offering a tight, clipped interpretation and, of course, one of the best and most frequent of the actors donning those tattered gloves, Memphis acting favorite Barry Fuller). As I wrote card after card, I began to think about all the other interpretations of A CHRISTMAS CAROL that I have encountered through the years - Seymour Hicks; Reginald Owen (in the role MGM intended for an ailing Lionel Barrymore, who had become famous for his radio performance and who would have, no doubt, been superior; a not-all-that-bad consolation prize was his equally tight-fisted 'Mr. Potter' in Frank Capra's IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE); Orson Welles (in a Mercury Theatre radio performance); Sir Ralph Richardson (a beautiful audio recording); Alastair Sim (in the early 1950's British film and offering my favorite interpretation of the role; Danny Peary, in his fascinating ALTERNATE OSCARS, selects him as Best Actor for that performance); and, certainly, George C. Scott, in what was considered to be the version to end all versions. (And does anyone recall Jim Backus' 'Mr. Magoo' in a delightful animated musical television special back in the 1960's?)
