Brynn O'Malley Answers BWW's TV 10: Geeks Out for BIG BROTHER, SEINFELD, LOST
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 2, 2015

True story; back in January, I had an idea to talk to insanely talented Broadway stars about the TV shows that they obsess over; after all they have to have as many guilty pleasures as the rest of us, right? Then, after they answered the questions, the Broadway star would suggest another Broadway star to receive the same ridiculous TV-related treatment. Well, between Brynn starring in HONEYMOON, and me taking on all of the advertising responsibilities I mentioned yesterday, we never were able to make it happen... until now!

From Cedar Grove Books: Draculiza Flies Into Bookstores
by BWW News Desk - Nov 29, 2015

A young vampire girl wishes to be a fairy princess. Having an imagination and wishing on that has always been something everyone does. Draculiza is no different. Her problem, though, is she wants to be a fairy princess; however as fate would have it that's a bit of impossible because she's a vampire.
