UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED by Ralph Nader is Released
by BWW News Desk - Nov 30, 2015

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ November 30, 2015, marks the 50thanniversary of the publication of Ralph Nader's landmark bookUnsafe at Any Speed.The book focused on the faulty rear suspension system of the General Motors Corvair, This defect could cause the Corvair to skid violently and roll over. The corporate negligence that had produced the various Corvair defects, Nader said, was 'one of the greatest acts of industrial irresponsibility.' More generally, Unsafe at Any Speeddocumented how Detroit habitually subordinated safety to style and marketing concerns. The main cause of automobile occupant injuries, Nader demonstrated, was not the 'nut behind the wheel' so often blamed by the auto industry, but the inherent engineering and design deficiencies of motor vehicles that were woefully unsafe, especially in terms of 'crashworthiness' no seat belts, etc. (more...)

As expected, the spunky and sassy Tony Award Winner---joined on stage by musical director/accompanist Mary-Mitchell Campbell and an excellent four-piece jazz ensemble---wowed the adoring crowd throughout the show with her Southern-fried tales of growing up as a Christian daddy's girl in Oklahoma, who would later rise to meteoric marquee heights on the Broadway stage thanks to her incredible set of vocal pipes and unmissable acting chops. Along the way, she sings a wonderful mix of hilarious ditties, familiar showtunes, and some emotionally-stirring ballads that prove why she's a stunningly good performer. (more...)

BWW Review: AN OCTOROON Brings Hilarity and Hard Truths to Woolly Mammoth
by Ellen Burns - Jun 6, 2016

"Out of every eight drops of my blood, seven are red, but one is black." In those words, spoken with despairing Apology in An Octoroon by Zoe, the titular octoroon, the illegitimate daughter of a plantation owner, are revealed the most profound and internalized depths of racism. Like a root vegetable, where the substance of the plant is buried under the ground, it truly visible only when you yank it out to examine what has grown underneath. In this case, what's above ground is a brilliant adaptation by playwright, 2016 Pulitzer finalist (for Gloria), and DC-native Branden Jacobs-Jenkins of an 1859 play by Anglo-Irish Dion Boucicault; a play that caused controversy and sold-out houses in somewhat equal measure when it played at the Winter Garden Theatre in the looming shadow of the Civil War.

BWW Review: Door Shakespeare's Fiercely Human JULIUS CAESAR Examines Political Friends and Foes
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jul 18, 2016

While William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar dramatically retells history through rich verse, Door Shakespeare at Baileys Harbor's Bjorklunden gives the play a fiercely human touch in this intimate garden setting. Here a serene rose garden might be enjoyed before the show, directly accessible from the bleacher theater seating. While Director and Milwaukee Rep Artistic Associate James Pickering focuses Shakespeare's political tragedy on the personal relationships between Brutus and Caesar, Cassius and Brutus or Brutus and Portia, Marc Anthony weaves between these relationships before laying rest to the murdered dictator in his famous, 'Friends, Romans, Countrymen' oration... In the lush garden on this moonlit stage, the tragic drama acquires a highly intimate and personal interpretation between the litany of interconnections crossing the moral lines between friends and foes, honor and honesty.

BWW Recap: SCREAM QUEENS Reveals 'The Final Girl(s)'
by Gunnar Larson - Dec 8, 2015

SCREAM QUEENS, since its inception, has been a satire of college Greek life, a system that breeds hateful, self-obsessed people. Every few weeks in the news there's a story of a fraternity throwing a racist party, or spitting on veterans, or leaked sorority emails. Chanel and her cronies have been representations of these people. I would say exaggerations, but they're not. SCREAM QUEENS returns to these roots in a more than satisfying two-part conclusion.

BWW Review: LIVING ON THE HYPHEN Hits Hard in Downtown Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - Apr 7, 2016

LIVING ON THE HYPHEN, the creative brain-child of Leng Wong and Anu Naimpally, danced, sang and acted it's way into the prestigious Rollins Theater at The Long Center of the Performing Arts last weekend. This piece of experimental theatre presented hard-hitting questions about our cultural differences and the mysterious 'no man's land' of "Hyphen". Hyphen quite literally means: a punctuation mark - one used especially to divide or to compound words, word elements, or numbers. Director Leng Wong said it best, "Using the vehicle of humor and various performance art forms, I want to illuminate our commonality of being different". This difference more specifically are the words divided by a single hyphen.The opposite of "hyphen-less" or being without hyphen is slightly touched upon, but the biggest element in Wong's and Naimpally's work is the interpretation of how culturally a "hyphen" separates us, divides us and defines us. Following Leng Wong's toothbrush lady through hyphen land, we meet other characters, with or without hyphens telling their story of the experiences their hyphen has bestowed upon them. Faces change, locations change but the overall theme of the characters straddling cultural identities and the weight of their hyphen, leaves the audience wondering how to cope with these realities. Having been written and performed by the ensemble, the storyline presented many questions for the audience regarding each character. While many questions are raised, only a few were actually answered regarding the players and the biggest being left to the audience: "What is my hyphen?". (more...)

Motivational Press to Publish 'A Cheerleaders Guide to Owning Your Truth, Achieving Your Dreams and Landing a Fulfilling Life as a Modern Parent'
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2016

Motivational Press today announced an agreement to publish 'Loud and Proud: A cheerleaders guide to owning your truth, achieving your dreams and landing a fulfilling life as a modern parent' written by Ally Loprete, which offers readers the ability to tap into their highest human potential with strategies to awaken their inner spirit and enthusiasm for life, be in celebration of themselves regardless of defeat, and discover their ability to reach personal achievement. ??Cheerleading is more than just rooting for the home team against the big bad rivals. It's a powerful metaphor for the kind of positive energy that creates miraculous and unexpected wins, lifts up one's spirits during times of struggle and doubt and the unwavering encouragement that keeps us ready to play and in the game no matter what the circumstance. ??Ally Loprete's Loud and Proud shares deeply personal experiences and insight that are meaningful, relatable and easily applicable for anyone (especially parents) to create positive change, live life without Apology, and create an authentic environment for themselves and their families. For release in Fall 2016. Loud and Proud shares with readers an uplifting tale of one woman's path to inner spirit and exhilaration. As a young girl, Ally Loprete had dreams of fitting in, having a powerful voice and making a positive difference in the world. She believed in the unprecedented capacity for human potential and the unappreciated genius of those who lacked a megaphone or a spotlight. In high school, her conquest to be 'popular' landed her a cheerleader's uniform, the vexing societal pressure to perform and behave in a certain way, and the ability to create authentic inspiration for the underdog. Twenty years later, she is still lifting others up, uniting the crowd in harmonious optimism, and destroying barriers that threaten the pursuit of excellence. ??Loud and Proud is an honorable and brutally visible chronicle of a former cheerleader and current mom's perspective written in a language that will especially resonate with today's modern parent unleashing the true grit of what it takes to reach ones highest potential and as well as the top of the pyramid. ??Whether stuck in a circumstance, blocked from introspection or seeking deeper purpose, the author's truth is a call for inspired action and reverence of personal triumph. ??It's a permission slip to courageously celebrate all of life's journeys, rebel against societal expectations, and discover the unabashed self truth that will lead to powerful personal transformations and spiritual enlightenment. ? Motivational Press is excited to work with Ally Loprete. With lively encouragement, Ally examines how to: • Awaken your very own personal cheerleader, capitalize on your inner resilience and enthusiasm, and lift your own spirits during times of struggle or uncertainty. • Tap into your highest potential and achieve mind-blowing abundance, personal transformations and spiritual enlightenment. • Move past limiting beliefs and break down unnecessary barriers to reveal your unrealized human potential. • Discover the most effective way to problem solve, make tough decisions without hesitation, and rid yourself of doubt once and for all. • Create a positive and enthusiastic environment for yourself and your children to flourish, regardless of any circumstance. About The Author: Self-made mom entrepreneur and parent enthusiast, Ally Loprete is nationally recognized as a vibrant and dynamic public speaker, radio personality and television host. She is the founder of OurMilkMoney.com, a nationwide online business directory of self-employed parents, the host of iHeart Radio's THIS LITTLE PARENT STAYED HOME where 6 million listeners tune in for resources and support, and the cohost of WAKE UP TV, a nationally televised broadcast for the new mainstream.

Everyone knows the feeling of a frustrating day, when little things that otherwise might have been ignored lead to anger.
