BWW Review: Courage Fights For Kindness In First Stage World Premiere ROBIN HOOD
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Feb 24, 2017

Enjoy an adventurous trip with First Stage and their singing Troubadour through the 14th century Sherwood Forest. In a collaboration with playwrights Joe Foust and John Maclay, Jeff Frank directs the world premiere Robin Hood--- complete with thrilling stage combat from the legendary anti-hero. This courageous Robin Hood 'asked for donations' from the English Elite at the point of his sword, collected and then contributed to the poor surrounding him in England. Among Robin's following where those, merry men and women who wanted to participate in as Maclay says, 'a rebellion against greed and corruption' in an attempt to right the wrongs in their world. Frank, Foust and Maclay turn the stage into Robin Hood's playground through Jody Sekas' stage design and Melissa Torchia's costume design, which allows an extremely fluid and fast paced production. Geoffrey, a young performer Jeff Burns from the Sherwood Forest cast, sings and strums Musical Director Jeff Schaetzke's original ballads playing the roving troubadour. His idiosyncratic lyrics make the audience laugh, as does the often contemporary, tongue in cheek humor throughout the play-often hilarious. While actor Dominique Worsley embodies a fierce, yet sympathetic Robin, Maclay's Sheriff of Nottingham and Foust's incomparable Archbishop of York stir their own brand of extraordinary humor and strength trying to capture 'the Hood.'

SMALL TOWN ROADS is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 23, 2017

In L. B. Johnson's new book, Small Town Roads ($14.99, paperback, 9781498490719, $7.99, eBook, 9781498490726) two women, one a young police officer from a major urban area, and another, an elderly retired teacher living in a tiny rural farm town, become unexpected neighbors and unlikely friends. When an act of violence draws them together, that friendship becomes a testament to God's faith, a healing balm for grief, and hope for a future that is not always clear. In the tradition of Kent Harauf's bestselling Plainsong, L.B. Johnson has written a lyrical, meditative story that acknowledges the dangers and comforts of our world. Small Town Roads is a loving story about an old, slow place where the terrible loneliness of grief eases because ordinary people decide to be community. With this, her first fiction novel after two #1 best best-selling Memoirs, she reveals a writer that can be enjoyed today as well as looked for tomorrow. (more...)
