BWW Recap: 'The Past is Past' on BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Series FinaleBWW Recap: 'The Past is Past' on BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Series Finale
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 27, 2014

Here we are, at the end. It's a bittersweet moment to say goodbye to a show as brilliant as BOARDWALK, but it must be done. So raise your glasses 'to the lost' one last time, waving off an exceptionally superb show that we loved with all our hearts! This ultimate episode, entitled 'Eldorado', meaning a land of weath and opportunity, opened in a parallel scene to what we are used to seeing in our opening credits. Nucky, on the shores of Atlantic City. It's different this time however. It's darker, Nucky removes all of his items of wealth and stature, and dives head first into the raging tides of the water, a truly incredibly metaphor for the door to Hell and darkness Nucky walked through and never came back out of.

BWW Commentary: The Mistreatment of Women on BOARDWALKBWW Commentary: The Mistreatment of Women on BOARDWALK
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 23, 2014

BOARDWALK EMPIRE writes some of the best female characters around, many can agree, but the treatment of said characters on the show reflects quite the opposite insinuation about the writers. While the show has tackled many feminist issues such as women's health, the right to vote, the temperance movement, and the misogynistic mindset of the men at the time, it's also reduced so many of it's female characters to forgo pointless deaths in order to further characterize and develop their male counterparts, or how I like to put it, allow for the men to feel some “man pain” to make us connect further with them emotionally.

Somerset Lending Standardizes on e-SignLive by Silanis, Sees 30 Percent Revenue IncreaseSomerset Lending Standardizes on e-SignLive by Silanis, Sees 30 Percent Revenue Increase
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

Prior to rolling out e-SignLive, Somerset's manual paper-based process included the handling and mailing of 50-60 page applications, resulting in additional days for customers to receive, review and fill out the forms. And with customers located across the state, paper document handling, couriering and storing made for an inconvenient way of doing business. By taking the new process completely digital, Somerset is now able to close business faster while offering customers the convenience of being able to e-sign from anywhere, on any device. This has increased the company's ability to compete with some of the nation's largest mortgage lenders and brought in new business as a result. (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 20, 2014

Today we are talking to the gifted composer and lyricist behind the earth-shattering score for Broadway's biggest recent hit, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, the versatile and passionate Stephen Trask. Shedding considerable light on the development of the idiosyncratic rock musical, Trask discusses his influences and the organic way in which the outre show developed from humble beginnings at downtown bar Squeezebox in the mid-1990s, to Off-Broadway hit at the turn of the new century all the way to the rapturously received feature film adaptation, and, now, the 2014 Broadway production. Trask also details his affection for Tony Award-winning lead actor Neil Patrick Harris and looks ahead to the new leading man donning the titular wig, Andrew Rannells. Additionally, Trask also shares news on the forthcoming sequel to HEDWIG currently being developed with John Cameron Mitchell and teases some of what we can expect from the hotly anticipated theatrical experience. Furthermore, Trask reflects on his own upbringing and musical influences and how that informed the composition of the score for HEDWIG, as well as his own favorite performers. Plus, Trask reflects on his fruitful career as a movie scorer in Hollywood and comments on his upcoming musical endeavors, including two original stage musicals - JUST THE BLACK KEYS, a real-life inspired original musical potentially involving Peter Askin and Michael Mayer, as well 15 MINUTES, a Studio 54-centric period piece written with Rick Elice - as well as much, much more.
