Based on the play by Arthur Kopit

Emily was an aviatrix who fearlessly walked on the wings of the family biplane. Just as she once plummeted dizzyingly through space, she is now falling through inner space as the result of a stroke. This extraordinary musical takes us inside Emilyís mind as she finds the light at the end of the tunnel in the cave of her memory. With breathtaking simplicity, WINGS charts her recovery as she regains her spirit to achieve new heights. Starring Ann Crumb. Directed by Jesse Cline.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2016

'Conversion: A Spiritual Novel About The Sacred & The Profane': a chilling and captivating tale of spiritual emergence from a dark shadow. 'Conversion: A Spiritual Novel About The Sacred & The Profane' is the creation of published author, Michael Slome, MD. In 1968, while in college, Mike Slome left his Christian faith to become an agnostic. In 1974, he entered his psychiatric residency, after completing medical school in upstate New York. In 1992, he returned to his Christian roots. Emily, a holy and devout Christian, who was one of Dr. Slome's patients, had a profound religious impact on him. Emily struggled with severe emotional instability, secondary to a traumatic brain injury. She never lost her faith or her daily focus on Jesus. Since that time, Dr. Slome has tried his best to live a Christ-centered life. Being human, he has at times slipped back into a self-centered life, where pride, jealousy, and selfishness resurfaced. He remains ever hopeful that no matter what happens in his life, he will pursue his goal to live a Christ-centered life. (more...)

BWW Review: HOLLYWOOD REVISITED at Oxnard Civic Auditorium
by Cary Ginell - Sep 26, 2016

You've seen them. Gaudy costumes worn by Hollywood and Broadway stars, preserved and on display in museums and galleries. It's a great way to witness first-hand the trappings of the pretend, magical worlds brought to us on celluloid, television, and the live stage. But when you see those famous outfits, hanging stiffly on mannequins, you get the sense something is missing. It's as if they were embalmed mummies from ancient Egypt, beautiful but lifeless. That's what makes a show like Hollywood Revisited, which played Sunday afternoon at the Oxnard Civic Auditorium, so valuable and different as a unique piece of show business entertainment. (more...)
