Joseph Badal Releases 'Ultimate Betrayal'
by BWW News Desk - Apr 23, 2014

'Filled with unexpected twists, unconventional allies and a master-mind villain who makes hired killers look like kindergarten teachers. 'Ultimate Betrayal' is Joseph Badal's best book yet. A must-read for anyone with a craving for a fast-paced, action-packed, beautifully constructed thriller.' -Anne Hillerman, author of 'Spider Woman's Daughter' Inspired by actual events, 'Ultimate Betrayal' is a thriller that takes the reader on an action-packed, adrenaline-boosting ride, from the streets of South Philadelphia, through the Afghanistan War, to Mafia drug smuggling, to the halls of power at the CIA and the White House. David Hood comes from the streets of South Philadelphia, is a decorated Afghanistan War hero, builds a highly successful business, marries the woman of his dreams, and has two children he adores. But there are two ghosts in David's past. One is the guilt he carries over the death of his brother. The other is a specter that will do anything to murder Him. David has long lost the belief that good will triumph over evil. The deaths of his wife and children only reinforce that cynicism. And leave Him with nothing but a bone-chilling, all-consuming need for revenge. 'Crisp writing, masterful pacing, and characters to genuinely care about. This is what top-notch suspense is all about.' -Michael Palmer, New York Times Bestselling author of 'Political Suicide' Prior to a long finance career, including serving as a senior executive and board member of a NYSE-listed company, Joseph Badal served for six years as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army in critical, highly classified positions in the U.S. and overseas, including tours of duty in Greece and Vietnam. He earned numerous military decorations. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in International Finance (Temple University) and Business Administration (University of New Mexico). He graduated from the Defense Language Institute, West Coast, and from Stanford University Law School's Director College. Joe now serves on the boards of several companies. 'Ultimate Betrayal' is his seventh published suspense novel. 'The Lone Wolf Agenda,' which was released in 2013, was named the top Mystery/Thriller novel in the 2013 New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards competition. He also writes a monthly blog titled Everyday Heroes, and has written short stories published in the 'Uncommon Assassins' and 'Someone Wicked' anthologies. Joe has written dozens of articles that have been published in various business and trade journals and is a frequent speaker at business, civic, and writers' events. Suspense Publishing is an imprint of JRSR Ventures, LLC and Suspense Magazine. Located at 26500 Agoura Rd, #102-474, Calabasas, CA 91302. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE COMEDY OF ERRORS at Oregon Shakespeare Festival
by Evan Henerson - Apr 22, 2014

The throw-everything-against-the-wall-and-pray-for-laughs approach to low comedy is a staple of live theater, and certainly, of William Shakespeare's plays. None play would seem to invite a shtick-fest - beg for one even - than the hugely ridiculous THE COMEDY OF ERRORS. At the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, alas, Kent Gash's free-for-all staging of Errors exposes the play's lameness rather than celebrates its lunacy. For ninety non-breezy minutes, every actor on that stage is mugging (or frugging) his or her collective buns off. Some of the players are quite deft and, indeed, the production has its share of laughs. Too often, though, the jokes don't land, the pace slows and the endeavor is dead in the water. (more...)

BWW Reviews: WATER BY THE SPOONFUL at Oregon Shakespeare Festival
by Evan Henerson - Apr 22, 2014

It may take a few minutes for a viewer to get his bearings within the world of WATER BY THE SPOONFUL.

Glee-Cap: Opening Night.
by Robert Lawlor - Apr 22, 2014

Curtain up, light the lights - it's opening night of Funny Girl and Rachel Berry is going out there a Broadway wannabe, and coming back - well, the greatest star, darling. Before we dive into an evening straight out of season one of Smash - (RIP Ivy Lynn) - let's have a round of applause for the one and only, Matt Tamanini for stepping in like a chorus girl getting to go on for the lead role for the first time last week! So, without further ado, let's get this show on the road - it's Broadway or Bust for Ms. Berry! Rachel gets a blast from the past in a dream where she is back at McKinley performing "LoveFool" by the Cardigans to an audience made up of flashbacks of her friends, as well as bored beyond all reason Becky, Karofsky, Sue, and Jacob Ben Israel. Rachel awakes from her dream, completely horrified. Holy stage fright, Batman! Kurt tries to keep Rachel in check from her self doubt, putting her on a lock down from online and putting her in a love zone - only love for Ms. Berry before opening night. Back at McKinley, no that is not a typo, Sue corners Will and tries to get Him to take her as his plus one to New York for Rachel's opening so that she can visit New York and to save her credibility. Will agrees to take Sue along, but only if she pays the too pregnant to attend Emma back and attends Rachel's big Broadway debut. Sue and Will get in touch with the Big Apple with a little "NYC" from Annie. (more...)
