BWW Review: MOTOWN THE MUSICAL is Solid Gold
by Linda Hodges - Jun 22, 2016

Broadway San Jose's Motown the Musical is a solid gold hit and played to an enraptured audience last night at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. Motown the record company was dreamed up by Berry Gordy in 1959 and the music world has never been the same. Gordy and his Cavalcade of artists defined the sound of the sixties and seventies, breaking down racial barriers with a signature soul/pop sound that cut across the black/white divide at a time when segregation was still the law of the land. Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations were just a few of the artists that made up Motown. The staggering amount of talent, creativity and love that was the Motown Sound and the story behind its founder Berry Gordy -- all brought to the Broadway stage in Motown -- will touch your heart and put the beat back in your feet. Playing now through June 26 it is a must see song celebration and surely a show for your theatre bucket list. (more...)

K.C. Promotes Her Urban Fantasy Series with the First Book THE BOOK OF SHADE
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

Lily Coltrane's to-do list for starting university life is pretty simple: 1. Make friends 2. Meet a cute guy 3. Survive her first year in Modern History In the little English town of Piketon this seems more than achievable, so much so that Lily even joins The Illustrious Minds Literary Society, an extra-curricular club that promises a truly unique social experience. What Lily doesn't bank on are the society's monthly visits to the mysterious Theatre Imaginique at the edge of town, a dark venue that houses the most obscure Cavalcade of carnival performers she has ever laid eyes on. Stranger still is the emergence of the theatre's enigmatic proprietor Lemarick Novel, a stupendous showman with a frosty wit who never seems to smile, and who raises a plethora of questions in Lily's fearful mind. How does he levitate with no sign of wires or mirrors? Why do the lightning bolts that shoot from his hands look so real? And why, of all the people in the theatre, do his pale eyes keep locking on hers? The answers to this and more lie buried in heritage and blood. The Book of Shade is opening, and Lily Coltrane will read it, whether she wants to or not. Other books in the series include The Bloodshade Encounters & The Songspinner (ISBN: 978-0993191503) and The Potioneer (ISBN: 978-1512359169). All three books in the Shadeborn series are available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: The Book Of Shade Shadeborn, Volume 1 By K.C. Finn Publisher: Starstorm Published: March 2015, Second Edition ISBN: 978-1505677553 ASIN: B00RD7SGK4 Pages: 522 Genre: Urban Fantasy About The Author: K. C. Finn was born and raised in Cardiff, South Wales, where her love for storytelling grew at a precociously young age. After developing the medical condition M.E. / C.F.S., Kim turned to writing to escape the pressures of disabled living, only to become hooked on the incredible world of publishing. Kim spends most of her time locked in the writing cave with an obscenely large mug of tea. When not writing, she can be found pursuing her PhD in Linguistics, watching classic British comedy, or concocting evil schemes in the secret laboratory in her attic.

BWW Review: MOTOWN Slays 'em in Music City
by Jeffrey Ellis - Feb 17, 2016

It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that on Tuesday night, February 16, Music City officially fell in love with Motown. Berry Gordy's musical is the stuff of legend and, as it takes us from 1983 all the way back to 1938 and back again, you can't help but be impressed by the ambitious young man's rise to preeminence; his story is the American dream come true and Gordy's impact on pop culture and the very fiber of our nation's history cannot be overstated - it's a story that resonates in Nashville to be certain.
