Miranda N. Prather Announces Books Signing at Secretariat Festival
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2016

Miranda N. Prather, author of Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, attended a book signing at The Secretariat Festival 2016 in Paris, Kentucky, on September 17, 2016. Prather took part in the event's Craft Fair, greeting fans of the popular gelding and signing books. During the event, Prather met many fans, chief among them were those who had followed Blue Blue Sea's life on Facebook, a young woman who worked at Elm Tree Farm, where Blue Blue Sea was born, and the author of the book Lucky Debonair Champion Thoroughbred of Danada Farm Eileen C. White. Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, published by Shoofly View, tells the life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles. The Secretariat Festival was a homecoming of sorts for Team Blue Blue Sea, as the blue-collar racehorse was born in Paris, Kentucky, not France, as recounted in the book. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures, by Kentucky artist Hayley Mullins, that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharoah, but he became a hero just the same. To learn more and follow Blue Blue Sea's world visit: https://www.facebook.com/BlueBlueSeaOTTB. Miranda N. Prather was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. The first horse she recalls following was Seattle Slew, who was born the same year she was, but it was Alydar that was her first horse racing love (and Blue Blue Sea's great-grandsire). During her time in Kentucky, she took horseback riding lessons and owned an off-track Thoroughbred named Beble. Hayley Mullins, from Erlanger, Kentucky, is a freshman at Lipscomb University. She is a self-taught artist, who is gaining a following due to her natural talent for catching a subject in whimsical ways. The illustrator studies Visual Development and Animation. Shoofly View seeks to give authors honest feedback, and if an author presents a well-written, interesting book, the chance at publication. In late 2015, they published Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, their first book. They are currently looking at other book projects and plan an online journal to highlight the best in writing, art and photography. Shoo-Fly View Publications (more...)

BWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La Mirada
by Don Grigware - Sep 19, 2016

Victor Hugo's monumental romantic/gothic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, published in 1831, centers in, around and on top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. So does the new musical of the same name written by Peter Parnell, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, which received its U.S. premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2014 and is currently receiving its Los Angeles premiere at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Stephen Gifford's set replete with stained glass windows, balcony and overhanging bells is scaled down from the original but still impressive and pulls you in effectively to another world, the ethereal realm of a higher power. Catholic boy that I am, every kyrie eleison exuded by the resounding chorus moved me to tears. (more...)

BWW Review: HELLDRIVERS OF DAYTONA Hits Too Many Speed Bumps
by Rachel Weinberg - Sep 13, 2016

Chicago, fasten your seat belts-the world premiere musical HELLDRIVERS OF DAYTONA has parked at the Royal George Theatre...and it's a bumpy, messy ride. Billed as a spoof of 1960s racing films, composer Berton Averre (known for 'My Sharona'), lyricist Rob Meurer, and book writer Mark Saltzman have developed a show that's entirely too on the nose. HELLDRIVERS lacks the satirical tone it seeks; instead, the first act replaces the sexual repression common in those 1960s movies with blatant, unoriginal sexual innuendoes and jokes in poor taste. Though conceived as an ironic take on the movies of that era, HELLDRIVERS feels overall cringe-worthy in the first act. The show shifts gears in the second act to focus more on sending up a number of great American musicals (and one Billy Joel song). The overall experience is erratic. (more...)
