BWW Review: Lyric Theatre's ASSASSINS Explodes in a Poignant and Timely Production
by Ronn Burton - Feb 15, 2017

Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma opens their 2017 Season with Stephen Sondheim's ASSASSINS. Michael Baron's production pushes the right buttons without going too far over the edge. It is startling to find how recognizable we find these characters: to see the pain, loss, and instability that plagued the lives of these criminals, we begin to find more similarities than differences…they are our neighbors, our relatives, or-unnervingly-ourselves. With the current divisive political climate, Lyric's production seems more timely than ever. (more...)

BORDER RUN & OTHER STORIES by Jennifer Leeper is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2017

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, today announced the paperback and eBook release of the short Fiction collection 'Border Run & Other Stories' by Kansas City, Missouri author Jennifer Leeper. Author of the novel, 'Padre: The Narrowing Path,' Leeper is an award-winning Fiction writer whose short Fiction is included in several anthologies and publications such as 'Independent Ink Magazine,' 'Notes Magazine,' 'The Stone Hobo,' 'Poiesis,' 'Every Day Fiction,' 'Aphelion Webzine,' 'Heater Magazine,' 'Cowboy Jamboree,' 'The New Engagement,' and 'The Liguorian.' Sit back and savor this mesmerizing collection of short Fiction set in multiple eras and locales. Two sisters hike a mountainside in South Korea, ascending to another level of sibling intimacy as they descend. A weary detective weathers a mid-life crisis of faith in everything that is familiar and known - including his own integrity as a man of the law. A dying grandmother tasks her grandson with distributing her massive collection of shoes, with the caveat that each pair must be matched to a suitable new owner. These fourteen stories provide tantalizing glimpses of death and its impact on those left behind, the tedious grind of day-to-day living and the promise of escape through the magical and supernatural. Though the characters in each story are encapsulated by their own unique worldview, they are a composite reflection of the overarching experience of life lived, in all times and places.

Randi M Sherman Launches BIG & FABULOUS Book
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2017

The time for 'BIG & Fabulous, The Life and Times of Brenda Cankles' is now! The emphasis is on positive body image and author, Randi M Sherman's latest humor novel, 'BIG & Fabulous,' is a truly entertaining story that's strongly written, funny, insightful and bitingly smart. Inside it's covers, readers will find no shortage of acidly hilarious accounts of the highs and lows of living life inside a big and fabulous body. In a world filled with skinny jeans, SPANX, narrow airplane seats, diets-du-jour and mouth-breathing bullies, it's clear that our society's ideas of true beauty and value are, well...screwed up. Although there are some enlightened trendsetters and designers making headway, clothing is only a part of the battle for the plus size woman. She has the unfair, yet added burden of having to prove that she is as valuable as her size six counter-part, while maintaining her dignity and her humor and focusing on what is truly important. Meet Brenda Cankles. Imperfect, impervious and improving, Brenda Cankles is an unlikely heroine. Unfazed by the enduring censure of society, she is determined to realize the fabulous life that she has always believed is her destiny. Brenda's story is told between the covers of 'BIG & Fabulous, The Life and Times of Brenda Cankles,' the newest humor Fiction novel by award winning author Randi M Sherman. Here, find a fantastically real person, sometimes struggling to fit in, but mostly giving the rest of the world the mother-lovin' bird. From her clunky childhood, through her stumbling yet optimistic adolescence to her full-figured and unapologetic emergence into adulthood, Brenda is a special brand of warrior. She is big, bold and beautiful. While the quirky cast of characters who surround her is eternally insistent that Brenda live her life in the background and fit into society's mold, she will have none of it. Author, Randi Sherman's experience as a stand-up comedienne is evident as one reviewer describers her as a 'frighteningly perceptive, funny and powerful woman,' and another says, ' ...readers will be kept reading and laughing throughout.' 'BIG & Fabulous, The Life and Times of Brenda Cankles' is Sherman's fifth novel, her fourth The Lobby has won 17 Awards for Humor and General Fiction. Her other books include: The Truth About Caroline (2015), Caroline Starts Over (2014) and Paula Takes A Risk (2012). For more information, a review copy of BIG & Fabulous and a media kit, please contact: info@randimshermanbooks.com and/ or visit https://www.randimshermanbooks.com Available from all online booksellers. Dip into the outspoken world of Brenda Cankles and get lost in the adventure of a big and fabulous gal who takes no prisoners, makes no excuses and has never had any doubt about how truly special she is.
