Based on the 20th Century Fox motion picture, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg

The 1987 hit movie featuring Tom Hanks bursts onstage in this vibrant, funny and touching musical. When frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were "big" and wakes up the next morning a 30-year-old man, he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for-and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. A witty, moving, insightful book and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score make this already classic motion picture fantasy an unforgettable theatrical experience. 'Big' is satisfyingly good. The music of David Shire, the lyrics of Richard Maltby Jr., the book by Jerome Weidman and the choreography by Susan Stroman extol all the values of the grand tradition of musicals. At the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

SATISFYING BABYGIRL Wins New Apple Book Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

'Satisfying Babygirl: Her Babygirl Book 1' by Kat Kylie chosen as Medalist Winner in the Erotica category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis Kat grew up sheltered in the midwest, opting to bury her face in books while her friends explored other avenues of entertainment. As the desire continued to grow and her body began to change, the pleasures that Kat had been denying herself all those years eventually boiled over. After graduation Kat moved to the west coast in an attempt to find her true self. A small town girl from the midwest, now overwhelmed in the Big city, she soon realized how much she'd missed as a teenager. A broke freshman in college, completely out of her depths, she finds herself scrolling through the darker side of the internet where she happens upon Jazz, a more than willing mentor for Kat's coming of age. Their growing friendship turns romantic, stirring feelings in Kat that had long since been forgotten. It isn't long before Jazz takes Kat under her wing and unlocks the forbidden door to deviance. Where will Jazz lead Kat and how far is she willing to go to find the limits of her desire? Read SATISFYING BABYGIRL to find out! About the Author Kat Kylie is an award winning author of literary erotica, comedic author and human resources director. She's not the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. She's the Kat that lives vicariously through the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. In reality, she's your average, run-of-the-mill, boring, everyday, mostly single, professional woman. In 2012, she began reading erotic women's fiction when the craze hit. She admits it was fun at first, but ultimately unsatisfying. 'I enjoyed the storyline that allowed me to feel as though I wasn't just thumbing through porn, but the sexual aspect was often too mundane to take me to the places I wanted to go. There seemed to be a vast divide between acceptable and taboo. It was either vanilla... or involved lactating step-mothers and/or tentacled creatures from the planet GnipGnop.' That's when Kat decided to develop the 'Her Babygirl' series. About The New Apple Book Awards The Annual New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing was established to honor the creative achievements of the unsung books fighting for their place within the digital publishing world. Any English language book published within the last three years, currently available for sale by an independent author or small press that met the Awards' guidelines was eligible for entry. One book was chosen in each category as the Medalist Winner receiving the highest honors. In addition, the judges were permitted to choose up to three Official Selections for category distinction.

BWW Review: Off-Putting Narrative in a Pretty Box with Book-It's A TALE FOR THE TIME BEING
by Amelia Reynolds - Sep 26, 2016

Dear Readers, Can you imagine reading your diary from when you were 16-years-old out loud, in front of an audience? Now, can you imagine doing it not for laughs, but to recreate those precious, documented moments with emotional integrity? Superimposing emotion over words such as 'My mom just does not understand me,' in a way that feels both authentic and serious is close to impossible, even when the content of the writing is much graver. This was Book-It's noble challenge in its latest production of 'A Tale for the Time Being' as 16-year-old Nao recites the words of her found diary. (more...)

BWW Review: Strong Performances Distinguish Portland Players' BONNIE AND CLYDE
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Sep 26, 2016

Portland Players opened its 86th season with an intense production of the Ivan Menchell-Don Black-Frank Wildhorn musical, Bonnie and Clyde, about the legendary Depression-era American outlaws. The 2009 musical theatre retelling of the short and violent lives of this pair, who robbed banks and left scores of dead victims in their wake as they evaded the law in a misguided quest for notoriety, puts a romantic spin on their legend at the same time that it does not side step the grittier aspects of this tale.

BWW Preview: Territory Folks Welcome Audiences to Limelight's 25th Season
by Michael Lipp - Sep 26, 2016

Audiences at Limelight's 25th season opener will be treated to a cozier, more down-home OKLAHOMA! on their intimate mainstage, but that's by design. Executive Director, Beth Lambert, who also directs this production of the landmark Pulitzer Prize-winning Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, didn't want this to be the 'show that you do to pay for the other shows in your season.' It's a show that she has always wanted to do since performing with her mother in a summer stock production when Lambert was in fifth grade. However, Lambert thought it was too large of a production for the Limelight space. (more...)

BWW Feature: New Theatre Jacksonville Technical Director Designs Austen
by Michael Lipp - Sep 26, 2016

Jon Jory's adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE & PREJUDICE posed significant scenic and lighting design challenges for Theatre Jacksonville's new Technical Director, Tim Watson. 'You've got about 25 locations and you can literally change from one to another on a single line,' Watson explains. 'There's no way you can do full sets for each location, but it's written that way - to be minimal. It's difficult to jump between so many locations and be so fast and so fluid. Jon Jory didn't want black-out scene changes, so it's more of an environment rather than actual locations.' Director Amy Canning agrees and calls the show 'very minimalist, but seriously complex with lots of moving parts and pieces.' (more...)
