Freya Barker Releases Contemporary Romance Novel, CRUEL WATER
by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2016

Author Freya Barker is pleased to announce the release of her new contemporary romance novel, Cruel Water. This is the second book in her Portland, ME series. Innocence marked her... Violation crippled her... Love left her raw... The life she carefully rebuilt is challenged when she is confronted with the sins from her past. The carefully applied protection is at once ripped away, leaving her exposed and vulnerable. Her single night of indulgence with the silver-eyed stranger is only the beginning. He sees right to the heart of her and she is unable to ward off emotions that have been deeply buried. With the sting of betrayal still fresh in her soul, she's surprised to find herself opening up to the honest integrity of the sharp-eyed, rough-looking biker. When he lost everyone who mattered, he was left without roots and learned to be content simply living in the moment. Completely unprepared for the feisty blonde bartender with old pain marring her clear-Blue Eyes, he questions his own rules of detachment, as she unwittingly finds a way under his skin. Appearances deceive and when the masks fall away, revealing deep, dark secrets, there is nothing left but to hang onto each other and survive the storm. **Due to content of a sexually explicit nature, this book is recommended for a mature audience only.** Book Details: Cruel Water Portland, ME, novels Book 2 By Freya Barker Publisher: Freya Barker Published: March 3, 2016 ISBN: 978-0994951427 ASIN: B01AKPA23O Pages: 388 Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women's Fiction About The Author: Freya Barker inspires with her stories about 'real' people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.

BWW Review: Burbage Theatre Company's Excellent HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WANDA JUNE
by Andria Tieman - Jan 19, 2016

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WANDA JUNE is the only full length play by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., based on his novel of the same name.  Like many Vonnegut works, it captures beautifully the absurdity of life, death and senseless violence all while making you laugh so hard you worry you'll hurt yourself.  Burbage Theatre Company has taken this under-utilized gem and shined it up perfectly.  Though the play takes place in 1970, it's shocking to note how well it holds up, especially when acted and directed so well.

by Nicole Rosky - Dec 15, 2015

Even if you have not yet made it to the Marquis Theatre, chances are that you have still seen Josh Segarra in action this year.

Now he's busy making this Broadway season spicer, starring as Emilio Estefan in the hit new musical On Your Feet!. This is far from Josh's first go at New York theater (he has previously starred in such shows as LYSISTRATA JONES and DOGFIGHT), but it's certainly his first major role in the Broadway spotlight. He just checked in with BroadwayWorld about what's been going on at the Marquis since opening night, how he is handling the extra leading man pressure, and why his 2015 was truly epic. (more...)
