CABARET LIFE NYC: Steven Schalchlin Isn't Saccharine During Emotionally Enriching Show at the Metropolitan Room
by Stephen Hanks - Nov 9, 2013

While it was billed as a presentation celebrating the release of his 13-song CD, Tales From the Bonus Round, and his 60th birthday, Steven Schalchlin's recent show at the Metropolitan Room was so much more than that. It was also one about fear, fortitude, anxiety, anguish, compassion, courage, and love, all expressed in poetic and often clever lyrics and melodies ranging from uplifting gospel to Billy Joel-sounding mid-tempo pop to sensitive ballads, many colored with musical theater undertones. At their core, most of the songs conveyed what Schalchlin has thought, felt and experienced since early 1993, when he was diagnosed with AIDS, launched one of the first internet diaries/blogs (in early 1996), stared death in the face on a daily basis, took an experimental AIDS drug (Crixivan), and ultimately regained his health and career. When you listen to his songs, it's not hard to believe Schalchlin when he claims that during those scary days writing music and the “healing properties of piano vibrations” also helped save his life, and the 17 years since are what he calls his “Bonus Round.” (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Nov 20, 2013

SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ Crosland HILL announces the release of The Night Before Christmas The Gift.

Global Cliff Diving Competition Debuts in Texas
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2014

DALLAS, TX - Cliff diving is the purest extreme sport on earth. Take a high cliff, deep water and courage. No additional machinery, no protection whatsoever, just absolute concentration and complete body control. Diving from heights of around 90ft, the equivalent of an eight-story building, has a long tradition but remained largely in the shadows until the start of a series of competitions in May 2009, featuring the world's best high divers. It is a series that has since pushed the limits of the sport and impressed more than 650,000 spectators on site worldwide. The 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, the pinnacle of cliff diving competition in its sixth season, will hit new as well as proven ground in the Caribbean, the continents of North and South America, as well as Europe, to determine a new champion for both men and women.
