BWW Reviews: RANDY NEWMAN'S Terrific Show at the Sheldon
by Chris Gibson - Feb 28, 2011

So, one evening (February 25, 2011) Randy Newman is providing the assembled throng at the Sheldon Concert Hall (a benefit for the Friends of the Sheldon) with an immensely entertaining concert, and a couple of days later he's picking up his second Academy Award (after countless nominations) for his composition 'We Belong Together' from Toy Story 3. Pretty sweet, huh? The really cool thing is that I was at his show at the Sheldon, and since I honestly can't recall the last time he's even appeared in St. Louis, I'm thankful I was able to catch him on this rare occasion. Newman, seated alone at the piano, regaled the audience with his self-deprecating wit and his enormous talent for a couple of hours, making his appearance here a memorable one. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Chance Theater's WELCOME HOME, JENNY SUTTER
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 20, 2010

As newscasts take very brief pauses between disgraced pro-golfers and the latest political scandals to report on the conflict in the Middle East, Americans are fleetingly reminded that as long as the war rages on, many of these heroic military men and women are either about to deploy to, are in the middle of, or are coming home from the harshest of situations. One such woman mired in the latter is the basis for Chance Theater's Southern California premiere of Julie Marie Myatt's WELCOME HOME, JENNY SUTTER, a play that tackles the enormous task of dramatizing a soldier's troubled homecoming.

HANKS ON HEALTH: Real Men Don't Eat Crap - A Guide to Healthy New Man Food
by Stephen Hanks - Apr 11, 2013

If anyone doesn't believe Americans have become expert at rationalizing and justifying their vices, especially when it comes to poor nutrition habits, just consider a recent Gallup survey about people and their weight. The survey reports that compared with 1990 Americans are on average 20 pounds heavier than they were 20 years ago (men from 180 pounds to 196 and women from 142 to 160). Even more shocking is that men and women both feel those higher numbers are close to an ideal weight. Just 39 percent of Americans characterize themselves as overweight. Us obese? No way. (more...)
