BWW Review: WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE Delights Audiences at Winter Park Playhouse
by Kelli McGurk - Jan 23, 2017

'Why Do Fools Fall in Love?' takes us back to the year 1966 to our protagonist, Millie's impromptu bachelorette party thrown by her friends Sally, Florence, and Dee Dee (who tags along, but is quickly adopted into the friend group).  The evening kicks off with alcohol, gossip, alcohol, junk food, and oh, did I mention? More alcohol.  Trouble begins to arise in paradise when Sally reveals that she sent Millie an anonymous note with some troubling news regarding her fiance.  Hilarity, arguing, and lots and lots of singing ensues, and we are left with a strong impression of the 'sisters before misters' mantra.  That is, guys will come and go, but best friends last forever.   (more...)

The Lake Effect Fringe Festival Kicks Off 5th Season
by BWW News Desk - Jan 21, 2017

The Lake Effect Fringe Festival kicks off its 5th season of bringing new theatre to West Michigan all through the month of February on Wednesday, February 1 and 2, 2017 at 8:00 pm with a performance by Shadblow Theatre, reprising their production of Anatomy of Gray, by Jim Leonard. A coming of age story that is relatable to all. Its themes of community, family, questioning faith, fear of the unknown, acceptance, and love speak to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The play's ensemble driven story-telling, sometimes delightful and sometimes devastating emotional depth, as well as its often presentational style allows this play to truly connect to its audiences. The story follows fifteen-year-old June Muldoon, her mother, the colorful townsfolk of Gray, Indiana, and the mysterious doctor who crash lands in the center of the "most boring town in the world." Seeking to raise questions about what it means to be a part of this incredibly diverse world, the heart of this play touches on themes relevant to all. Fast-paced clever staging, beautiful lyrical narration, and a small but talented nine person ensemble, this play offers a compelling story in an immersive setting that is sure to offer a lot of laughs and a few tears.  (more...)

She looks to relationships and men to complete her life and provide what she desperately wants; to be deeply loved and fulfilled. Her choices, motivated by various reasons, only serve to deliver an avalanche of emptiness and pain, as each failed marriage leaves her more dry and empty.

However, the reader can see how God pursues us, even when we feel worthless and valueless. This story amplifies the understanding that no one is too lost, too low or not important enough to receive restoration, redemption and the refreshment of what a relationship with Christ can bring.
