'8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have to Give Up to Go Up' by Kevin Paul Scott is Released
by BWW News Desk - May 22, 2014

Baxter Press announces that '8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up' (ISBN 978-1-888237-95-6, Baxter Press) by Kevin Paul Scott has been reduced to $14.00 for a hardback edition and $6.99 for a Kindle, Nook, or iBook until the end of May. The hardback edition regularly sells for $22.95 and the other editions for $9.99. To order the book at the reduced price, customers will need to enter the word GRADUATE when Checking Out. The book is an ideal graduation gift for 2014 graduates who are embarking on new careers and new journeys in life. '8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up' explores exchanges that individuals need to make in everyday life to go from a comfortable and safe position to an even better position. The book is ideal for this year's graduates who are embarking on their careers or are seeking ideas on how to enrich their lives. The book is easy to read with short questions at the end of each chapter to allow the reader to take an evaluation of where they are in making exchanges. Scott discusses that decision making should be based upon sacrificing certain elements to go from a good to an even better position. In the book, he makes the point that individuals often base decisions from a negative - going from a bad situation to a better or defensive posture when they should be looking at decision making as exchanging a good position for an even better position. 'College graduates are embarking upon a new chapter in life that will mean leaving the known for the unknown and making exchanges along the way,' says Kevin Paul Scott, author of '8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up.' 'In my book, I discuss why we shouldn't be uncomfortable with making exchanges but rather embrace them and I hope this year's graduates can find inspiration from those examples. 'We make exchanges everyday of our life when we make decisions,' continued Scott. 'College graduates need to look at the exchanges as going from a good place to an even better place and that is the core message of '8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up'.' '8 Essential Exchanges: What You Have To Give Up To Go Up' has earned strong reviews and has been endorsed by legendary college football coach and Hall of Famer, Vince Dooley of the University of Georgia and Gary Whitehill founder of the New York Entrepreneur Week. The book discusses how to go about making exchanges between good things and even better things that can shape a company's dynamic or person's life. The eight exchanges that Scott identifies are: 1. Exchanging stability for significance 2. Exchanging fans for friends 3. Exchanging dollars for difference 4. Exchanging expedience for excellence 5. Exchanging shifting sands for solid rock 6. Exchanging being the master of none to being the master of one 7. Exchanging acceptance for accomplishment 8. Exchanging the immediate for the ultimate Kevin Paul Scott has spoken to leaders on six continents from more than 100 countries. Kevin co-founded the ADDO Institute and ADDO Worldwide. The ADDO Institute received the Governor's International Award for 'New Company of the Year' in the state of Georgia. Currently, ADDO Worldwide has developed a nationwide leadership curriculum sponsored by Chick-fil-A. He has been named to the '40 under 40? lists for Georgia Trend and then the Atlanta Business Chronicle. (more...)

InDepth InterView: Lea Michele Confirms FUNNY GIRL Revival! Plus, Talks New Solo Album LOUDER, GLEE S5, LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY'S RETURN, WICKED & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Mar 4, 2014

Today we are particularly thrilled to present a wide-ranging conversation with one of the most attention-grabbing and notable Broadway/Hollywood crossover stars of the new millennium all about her theatre past, GLEE present and potentially spectacular future - the charismatic and committed Lea Michele. Sparing some precious moments while promoting her new solo album release, LOUDER, Michele comments on not only her studio work and the current season of her FOX hit musical dramedy series but also sheds some light on much more, including sharing first news of the new stage revival of FUNNY GIRL currently in planning stages following the rights being purchased by GLEE creator and mastermind Ryan Murphy, set to mirror the Season Five storyline of GLEE itself as it presents the spectacular theatrics, unforgettable songs and backstage backstabbing involved with the FUNNY GIRL revival starring Rachel Berry (aka Michele). Additionally, Michele analyzes some of her favorite tracks on LOUDER and offers a glimpse into the creative process in creating some of the album's standout tracks such as 'Cue The Rain' and 'The Bells'. Plus, Michele opens up about her role alongside fellow Broadway heavyweights Megan Hilty and Bernadette Peters in the hotly anticipated new animated movie musical LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY'S RETURN and clues us in on what we can expect from the multimedia extravaganza. Furthermore, Michele previews some upcoming GLEE showstoppers-to-be including two songs penned by Stephen Sondheim - 'No One Is Alone' from INTO THE WOODS and 'Not While I'm Around' from SWEENEY TODD - as well as the re-teaming with SPRING AWAKENING star Skylar Astin, while also offering the 411 on the show's big new move to a primary NYC focus. All of that, thoughts on GLEE co-star Idina Menzel's FROZEN performance on this week's Academy Awards telecast, opinions on a new LES MISERABLES revival, a look ahead to her upcoming autobiography BRUNETTE AMBITION and much, much more!

BWW Reviews: New Jewish Theatre's Powerful Production of THE PRICE
by Chris Gibson - Mar 26, 2014

Writer Arthur Miller's THE PRICE is a powerful and engaging work that uses a simple set up to discuss the "price" everyone pays for the decisions they make in life. Each choice we make makes an impact on those around us, often deeper than we're aware of. Though emotionally charged and dramatic, this is also a play that is quite funny at times. The current production by The New Jewish Theatre crackles with the kind of bristling energy we've come to associate with Miller's work, and with exceptional theatre. The Price is definitely worth Checking Out. (more...)

CABARET LIFE NYC: KAREN OBERLIN and SEAN HARKNESS Concoct Romantic Musical Chemistry at the Metropolitan Room
by Stephen Hanks - Jun 14, 2014

Cabaret performers thinking about launching duo shows could certainly take a lesson in chemistry from watching and listening to singer Karen Oberlin and guitarist Sean Harkness in their current show, A Wish, which is based on their superb recently released CD of the same title, launched with two shows at Kitano on February 1 (to celebrate the CD release), and has taken up a once a month residency until late August at the Metropolitan Room (the next show is on June 25 at 9:30 pm). While theirs is not a romantic off-stage chemistry (both are happily quite happily married, thank you), on stage and in the recording studio Oberlin and Harkness have concocted a delicious musical interaction that conjures up romance to the nth degree.

CABARET LIFE NYC: Mid-Year Cabaret Review--Best (and Favorite) 20 Shows and Performances (So Far) for 2014
by Stephen Hanks - Jul 5, 2014

Since I attended more than 50 shows over the past eight months (a few more than once)--the large majority of which were reviewed on these web pages—I felt I had more than enough cabaret show inventory to present my second-annual “Mid-Year Cabaret Review” citing the “20 Best Cabaret Shows and Performances” for the first half of 2014. Since the eligibility period for 2014 BroadwayWorld New York Cabaret Award consideration begins with shows staged since last November (late October if it was the first of a run), I've included a few of those late 2013 shows in this group. And with the announcement of the BWW Award nominees just four months away, I've offered some projections on the Award categories for which these shows very well might receive consideration.

BWW Recaps: AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT: DEAD MAN'S FOLLY Wickedly Delivers
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Aug 5, 2014

While not accompanied by his mainstay companions of many episodes (Capt. Hastings, Inspector Japp, Miss Lemon), this plot intertwines Poirot's likewise eccentric and charmingly maddening friend, crime writer Ariadne Oliver (Zoe Wanamaker). They inhabit a complex plot beset by double meanings and double identities, aided by strong production values including superb period costumes and a fabulous location: Christie's own Greenway Estate. Viewers familiar with Christie plot elements and ruses will probably catch on quickly to suspicious behaviors that scream: 'look at me, I'm a clue', but they are likely to catch novices unawares. Identifying the villain is probably easier than identifying the Motive here, and folly, whether of character or architecture, is an important theme. SPOILER ALERT: Eyes should be fixed on Sir George Stubbs (Sean Pertwee), whose hail-fellow-well-met demeanor is a thin veneer over a core of wickedness. (more...)

BWW Reviews: West End Player's Guild's Amusing Production of RX
by Chris Gibson - Apr 9, 2014

There's always a risk involved in becoming a test subject for a new drug. It's a necessary process for the pharmaceutical companies since it reveals the benefits and detriments of their latest discovery. But, the people who undertake these studies are often desperate for something that will help them, and there's a definite drive to see them succeed. But, at what costs? That's one of the questions playwright Kate Fodor explores in RX, a kind of romantic comedy that also touches on a serious subject matter. Though it remains a bit uneven in tone, it's likable and engaging as well. The current production by the West End Players Guild is certainly worth Checking Out, and provides plenty of food for thought. (more...)
