BWW Review: DIRTY DANCING is a Disappointing Disservice to Original Film
by Matt Tamanini - Mar 30, 2016

Since the dawn of the genre, stage shows have been adapted from various sources; books, other plays, poems, historical events, and, increasingly over the past two decades, movies. The best projects based on movies take what is special from the source material and use that as inspiration to form a fresh stage adaptation. However, the DIRTY DANCING National Tour, playing at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts through Sunday, April 3rd, focuses so intently on recreating the minutia of the film, that it completely misses what made it so captivating in the first place; authentic, compelling characters and an intimate, passionate story.

BWW Review: Natalie Douglas Breathtakingly (and Politically) Explores the Human Heart in CD Release Show at Birdland
by Remy Block - Mar 29, 2016

"I'm a black woman in America; breathing is political," stated Natalie Douglas, wryly, early in her March 21 concert at Birdland to celebrate the release of her excellent new recording Human Heart. I felt myself inwardly fist pump-yes! Douglas dared to acknowledge the contemporary political circus-which I, for one, am completely obsessed with-on the cabaret stage! Okay, I can relax-I will make it through this show without listening to a political podcast or reading a David Brooks New York Times opinion column after all. Phew! I have not entered a purely escapist fantasyland, but surrendered to the capable musical ensemble on stage. Douglas wore a long white gown (chosen out of the pile when her husband made an approvingly bawdy comment as she tried it on for him) and her band-all six of whom appear on the record-wore all black. The appearance was a study in contrast, but the group, was most assuredly a cohesive instrument. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

Join a group of retired Special Forces veterans as they take on a sinister government conspiracy to ensure that Great Britain remains free. Confronted by brainwashed policemen, a psychotic detective and an evil mastermind named Margaret Thatcher (no relation,) these Silver Soldiers must do everything in their power to save the country they love. Aspiring independent author Dave Eastman has released his second novel, Silver Soldiers, a science fiction thriller set in a dystopian near future Great Britain. Following the success of his debut novel in 2015, Realmborn, which was well received both on the Amazon marketplace and on, Silver Soldiers aspires to be an enjoyable read for all. Reviewers have so far said, 'Silver Soldiers is a cracking read and extremely good fun...action, humour, suspense, anguish, and an incredibly enjoyable ensemble of characters' and 'A thrilling and fast paced novel that I did not want to put down!' Silver Soldiers tells the story of Campbell Ellis, a retired Special Forces veteran, who finds himself thrust into the battles against a mind-control conspiracy being led by the head of the National Police Service. Campbell's grandson has unwittingly joined the fight and Campbell must recruit his former comrades to help keep the young man alive. Now available on Amazon Silver Soldiers is described by its author as 'nothing that will change your life or make you a better person or reveal the mysteries of the universe to you, but it will keep you very entertained for a few hours.' Eastman, a resident of the Isle of Wight, features the island in this novel, as well as the city that is his First Love, London. A former conference and events manager, he now devotes his time to writing (his third novel, a science fiction action film in book format, is due out soon), raising his two sons and playing his guitar for anyone who will listen.
