Based on the film Passione d'Amore directed by Ettore Scola


Based on the novel Fosca by I. U. Tarchetti

PASSION, winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Music and Lyrics, Best Book, and Best Musical, features music and lyrics by the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Company, Follies, Into The Woods, Gypsy) and book by James Lapine (Falsettos, Into The Woods, Sunday In The Park With George).





PASSION opened on Broadway in 1994, and received its London revival in 2010 at the Donmar Warehouse as part of Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday celebrations.



Stephen Sondheim's PASSION revolves around a handsome Italian solider, Giorgio, separated from his beautiful mistress, who is shattered and ultimately changed by the unconditional and obsessive love of Fosca, his Colonel's chronically ill and plain cousin. Her unrelenting passions force him to re-evaluate his beliefs about love and attraction between two human beings.

by Guest Blogger: Dearna Doglione - Apr 26, 2016

As I take a seat at the back of the theatre, the cast of Through My Father's Eyes start practicing their songs. Peseta conducts with a flavour and style ingrained within him, powerfully finding the light and shade, making every word of the beautiful language understandable to those who can't speak it. When they make it to the peak, there is such strength in their Passion for the song that it almost brings me to tears. But the true power is within the quiet moments; the palpable fragility, that makes you listen so closely and feel so deeply. (more...)

Spine Surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, M.D., Completes Book SeriesSpine Surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, M.D., Completes Book Series
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

With Americans bearing $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, and about eight million of them in default, 43-year-old spine surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, reveals tips on how to manage student loan debt and more with the completion of his three-book series adding 'The Black Student's Guide to Financial Success,' and 'The Black Parent's Guide To Financial Success' to the existing 'The Black Student's Guide To Success,' all available at Amazon.com and www.blackstudentsguide.com. The book series comprises three motivational titles, covering an array of topics for success, birthed after Dr. Claybrooks encountered several patients in the emergency rooms of Detroit that were living beneath their potential, and not maximizing their gifts. 'I decided to add the financial guide to success books because I believe that freedom is everyone's birthright,' says Claybrooks. 'Many African Americans lack control of their finances thus bound by the shackles of financial bondage.' The goal is to help the reader understand how money works in the world, how to manage money, how to invest, and overall, how to navigate successfully through life by making informed and effective decisions for long-term success. There are many political debates and studies being held due to the outrageous student-loan debt and default, in particular, the effect it has on minorities. Dr. Claybrooks, a contributing writer for www.Elev8.com states, 'The average white family has ten times the net worth of the average African American family. That's about one hundred to one hundred ten thousand dollars for whites compared to ten to eleven thousand dollars for blacks.' According to a study, led by Micere Keels, associate professor in comparative human development at the University of Chicago, 'More than 500 Black and Latino college students has confirmed that many encounter obstacles after enrolling in college without adequate financial resources.' 2016 presidential candidates are also revealing plans to help graduates with their student loan burdens. The Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton's New College Compact proposal, would cost $350 million over ten years to get rid of some of the financial burdens that students face when borrowing money for tuition. Jeb Bush wants to end student loan debt before it even begins by providing less expensive higher education options. While democratic hopeful, Martin O'Malley, would like to help alleviate student loan debt by providing more affordable options as well as better plans to repay debt. Although it is great to see the concern, Dr. Claybrooks believes no one is dealing with the obvious. He says, 'Financial literacy starts at home, and is a topic that needs to be addressed with urgency in the black community.' When asked why he did not stay in his lane and just write medical books, Claybrooks explains, 'I have a tendency to write about things that seem to be great areas of struggle in the lives of the many people that I encounter. It's like an iceberg. There may be a small tip on the surface but there's something much bigger underneath.' His book series stems from real life situations. They are guides to educate, encourage, and edify, with realistic suggestions and results, for those serious about succeeding in school and beyond. 'Being a physician allows me to interact with people from a wide range of backgrounds. I've taken care of preachers, politicians, lawyers and criminals. I've treated the world famous as well as obscure individuals,' explains Claybrooks. 'For the most part, people have a high level of trust in their doctor. People literally trust us with their lives. This intersection of health and humanity allows me to see beyond disease and into the core of the makeup of people's lives.' His Passion to be successful, and his ability to contribute to the African American race, is a responsibility he will always contribute to and fight for. 'I understand that my encounters with a very small percentage of the population, if extrapolated across this entire country, means that hundreds of thousands and likely millions of others are experiencing the same struggles I see in the people that I engage,' says Claybrooks. As a group, Dr. Claybrooks feels African Americans should place a significant amount of emphasis on discrimination and equal rights, however, not at the expense of economic empowerment. 'Until we (African Americans) are financially secure, we will always be at the mercy of others,' states Claybrooks. 'Wealth and finance provide a degree of autonomy and control over our lives that few other things can.' (more...)

Donna Foley Mabry Releases Fifth Book in 'The Manhattan Stories' SeriesDonna Foley Mabry Releases Fifth Book in 'The Manhattan Stories' Series
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

Las Vegas based best-selling author Donna Foley Mabry celebrates the release today of 'D'Arcy Curran,' the fifth book in her popular The Manhattan Stories series. 'D'Arcy Curran' is the first of a three volume tale that follows the stories of the Curran family in the small town of Manhattan, Kansas during the mid-19th century. From the book jacket: 'In 1861, in the small town of Manhattan, Kansas, the Curran girls have expectations of what their lives will be. D'Arcy, 12, redheaded and freckled, curious and rebellious, wants to grow up and dominate her world. Suzanne, not yet 18, wants only to marry her handsome lieutenant from Fort Riley, Jonathan Taylor. The beginning of the Civil War and Suzanne's one night of Passion sends everyone's lives in an unexpected direction. Jonathan is sent to the battlefields that will determine the survival of the nation. To avoid scandal in their small town, the girls are sent to Detroit to live with family. They not only find a welcoming aunt and uncle, they discover a burgeoning city, both ugly and beautiful, rough and cultured, drunk and refined. As she matures, D'Arcy develops a friendship with the older boy next door, and it changes her opinion of men. Fate throws both girls undreamed-of twists, and D'Arcy is forced to cope. A rash decision changes everything. Will D'Arcy be prepared for the consequences?' About the Author: A Michigan native who studied writing in school, Donna first came to Vegas to make costumes and soon was weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girls' dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of 'The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries,' which include 'The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas,' 'The Las Vegas Desert Flower,' 'The Las Vegas Special,' 'Rough Ride in Vegas,' 'M.I.A. Las Vegas,' and the recently released 'The Las Vegas Sophisticate.' Her most popular novel, 'Maude,' the best-selling Kindle Direct Publishing non-fiction work of all time, is a #1 best-seller on Amazon and spent multiple weeks on the Wall Street Journal's Top-10 lists. 'Maude' is currently being translated into Russian and German, and was recently released in Italian under the title 'Non Avevo Scelta.' Donna has an admired series of historical romances, The Manhattan Stories, 'Jessica,' 'Pillsbury Crossing,' 'The Cabin,' 'Kimimela,' and released in April 'D'Arcy Curran' the first of a three-volume work in the series. She has written several other stand-alone thrillers, 'Desperate Ambition,' 'The Right Society,' and 'The Other Hand,' and a light-hearted work, 'Conversations With Skip,' the story of a shelter dog adopted by a young woman having trouble sleeping after her divorce.

BWW Review: New Century's MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Elicits Powerful Emotion from the UnfamiliarBWW Review: New Century's MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Elicits Powerful Emotion from the Unfamiliar
by Jay Irwin - Apr 25, 2016

I doubt that many of us these days have such a rigid upbringing that our Passion causes us to question our ideals. Sure there are people with strict ideologies but we live in a more inclusive and forgiving world (most of us) and usually our beliefs follow suit with our wants. Which is why Aaron Posner's play "My Name is Asher Lev", currently being performed by New Century Theatre Company, with its juxtaposition of strict religious beliefs against Passionate art might come across as a bit foreign to most of us and a potential hard sell. But thanks to the usual talent and commitment from the folks at NCTC even this unfamiliar tale can resonate with power. (more...)
