There are few shows I know every word to, and even fewer I've known for 30 years. When I was 10, I was in the chorus of a community theatre production of EVITA in Hingham, MA. I became obsessed. In 5th grade, we had to do a biographical report on anyone we chose. All the other boys chose Babe Ruth, Abraham Lincoln, Ted Williams...I threw up my hand and shouted 'Eva Peron!' The black and white covered vinyl double album became my own personal soundtrack. And I was somehow surprised that people knew I was gay. (more...)

As embodied by the engaging Robert Michael Oliver-heavily bearded for the occasion-Sanctuary Theatre revives Whitman in all his messy glory, bringing us his passion, sensuality, sensitivity and eroticism. It's hard to imagine a guy who looks like Santa Clause relishing the kinds of behavior that (until recently) could get you arrested in most states. But he was dangerous in his own day, and as Oliver reminds us so richly here, he will remain a scandalous figure on the American scene for as long as there is an America. (more...)

SINGAPORE(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - More and more businesses operate on an international basis with parts or all of the production being outsourced abroad or deliveries and distribution channels spreading into countries around the world. While having the opportunity to utilize different countries to contribute all to the same business offers great advantages and selling products and services on an international scale is highly profitable, it becomes increasingly difficult for companies to keep an overview of the associated environmental risks that are involved. These are risks that from a standpoint of sustainability and social responsibility request the adherence to certain standards in order to operate as risk-free and environmentally friendly as possible. On top of that, different countries have different rules and regulations in place and it can be hard for companies to guarantee that all those requirements are met, especially when expanding to different countries.
