by BWW News Desk - Feb 27, 2017

SocksLane announced that they are making the reinforced terry cotton sole a standard feature for all they women hypoallergenic compression socks. The decision was taken after extensive testing and customers feedback. 'We realized that women used our compression socks on a daily basis so a comfortable and durable sole was necessary,' stated Amanda Dixon, the company's CMO. 'Buyers want a compression sock with top notch performances that is also strong enough to withstand everyday tear and wear like, for example, long shift at the hospital and that does not look like a medical sock!' The feature was already being implemented on their newly launched Black Stripes Cotton Compression Socks designed specifically for people who stand or sit for long periods of time and need some extra support for their legs. SocksLane is a company specialized in high-quality compression socks whose main component is natural cotton. The company's products stand out from the crowd for their accurate sizing and comfort, their durability and casual looks; and especially because their particular blend of fibers makes reduce the risks involved with skin reactions dramatically. The company objective is to provide excellent value compression wear that prevents rashes and allergies. Unlike most competing brands that use exclusively synthetic fibers, SocksLane has made it a company priority to develop products with as much natural material as possible and only selected anti-allergy stretch fibers. These are necessary to provide the elasticity needed to 'squeeze' the wearer's calfs and improve Blood flow. SocksLane Compression socks are sold on Amazon.com where the company' promotion can also be found. https://www.amazon.com/SocksLane-Women-Compression-Socks-Graduated/dp/B01N1F8MCD (more...)

BWW Review: A Passionate Vittorio Grigolo in the Off-Kilter World of Massenet's WERTHER at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Feb 23, 2017

Tenor Vittorio Grigolo always seems most at home on stage when he's living close to the edge--portraying a character who's losing control (or about to) of his emotions. It was true earlier this season as Romeo, in Gounod's ROMEO ET JULIETTE at the Met opposite Diana Damrau and, in 2015, as Chevalier Des Grieux in Massenet's MANON, also with Damrau. (Might as well add Offenbach's Hoffmann to the mix.) Well, Massenet's back at the Met with WERTHER, also starring the gorgeous, sultry-voiced mezzo Isabel Leonard and all should be well with the world, with Grigolo as the poet who's losing his head (and mind) over a woman who can't (or won't) reciprocate.

by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2017

Enchantment abounds as the season continues with the Bay Area Premiere of Marc Norman, Tom Stoppard and Lee Hall's effervescent romance, Shakespeare in Love, coming to MTC this holiday season.

Will, meanwhile, has his own struggles: his inspiration fled, his debts and unwritten commissions piling up…until he meets an unknown young player named Thomas Kent, who speaks his words as he's always dreamed they'd be spoken, and a beautiful woman named Viola, who could be just the muse he needs.
