by BWW News Desk - Oct 26, 2016

Artistic Director Julie Kent is pleased to announce details of her first-ever commissioned work, Frontier (working title), choreographed by Ethan Stiefel for The Washington Ballet. The work is inspired by President Kennedy and his aspirations for America as a leader of artistic, cultural and intellectual excellence. His historic May 25, 1961 "urgent needs" address to the United States Congress serves as the impetus for this work. This speech launched what became a legacy in U.S. space travel and exploration with a determination for the United States to be the first to land a man on the moon. The President and First Lady focused national attention on the role of the arts in a country and the need for a nation to represent itself through its art. They also encouraged the development of Washington as a cultural center. The President was an advocate for America's ability to educate and develop individuals in cultural, intellectual and artistic endeavors. (more...)

NEW YORKand NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ ANGELS on EARTHis the highly anticipated follow up book from Laura Schroff, author of the #1 New York Times and international bestseller AN INVISIBLE THREAD. In her first book, Laura told the remarkable story of her unlikely friendship with Maurice Mazyck, an 11-year-old homeless panhandler she met on a Manhattan street corner in 1986. Laura likened their decades-long unlikely friendship to 'an invisible thread,' which, according to an ancient Chinese proverb, 'connects people who are destined to meet.' Hundreds of thousands of readers fell in love with the story of Laura and Maurice, and many of them sent Laura their own 'invisible thread' stories. Now, Laura has collected some of those compelling, inspirational and poignant stories in ANGELS on EARTHwhich takes its name from Laura's belief that if we honor and activate the invisible thread connections in our lives, we can become angels on earth for each other.

BWW Review: Don't Cry for Cabrillo's Must See EVITA
by Don Grigware - Oct 17, 2016

Tim Rice's & Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita has had a thirty-eight year international love affair with the public since it  premiered in 1978 in London and in 1979 on Broadway. The newest revival in regional theatre is currently at Cabrillo in Thousand Oaks until October 23 only. An operetta based on Eva Duarte Peron and husband Juan Peron of Argentina, the story documents the rise to power of a simple peasant girl to the rank - almost - of Vice-President of her country. I say almost because she became too ill to accept the nomination in 1951 and passed into immortality in 1952 after a seven year reign as First Lady of Argentina, which began in 1946. Evita: criminal or saint? has been the topic of books and documentaries.
