She is now focused on creating the first nationally-televised vegan travel show. Her talk will be featured on day one of the festival. Along with scrumptious food stories, she'll let people in on exactly what it's like to maintain a location-independent lifestyle indefinitely. Another social media guru to be featured is Ellen Kanner who will speak on 'Garden of Earthly Delights: Fueling Passion with Plants.' She is the author of Feeding the Hungry Ghost, and is also the Huffington Post's Meatless Monday blogger and a syndicated columnist for The Edgy Veggie. A recipe developer for numerous other publications, her talk promises to be filled with mouth-watering treats. Several of the other headliners on tap will give a medical slant to their presentations. Dr. Robert Ostfeld will speak on 'Confessions of a Reformed Cardiologist: A Plant-Based Diet and Your Heart.' Ostfeld is associate professor of Clinical Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, director of the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center, and associate director of the Cardiology Fellowship at Montefiore-Einstein. He received his training from the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University School of Medicine, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School.

Many more speakers will Grace the festival stages, including animal rights organizers, vegan chefs, and vegan athletes. There will be cooking demonstrations and book signings. A special area of the festival grounds will be devoted to children's activities. There will be a variety of entertainment as well, including a performance by the Edward Morgan Ballet and a screening of the short documentary film Home on the Range. For many attendees, however, the main attraction will be the chance to sample and buy wares from the scores of plant-based vendors that will fill the festival space. Main courses, desserts, snacks and condiments will be showcased along with apparel, beauty products, and other vegan lifestyle items. The New York City Vegetarian Food Festival is presented by U.S. Veg Corp, a production and marketing company which also founded and produces the Arizona and California Vegetarian Food Festivals.

BWW Review: Broads' Word Ensemble's THE LADY WAS A GENTLEMAN Comically Examines Love, Identity, Race, and Gender
by Shari Barrett - Apr 26, 2017

During the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival, I discovered the all-female theatre troupe Broads' Word Ensemble when my love of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shew and being a fan of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy led me to the group's first production, Fifty Shades of Shrew. After being exquisitely entertained by the show, I vowed to follow the group in their future endeavors, whether at Fringe or not. So when I heard about their current production of The Lady Was a Gentleman, a screwball comedy of seduction, mistaken identity, and all the fun you can get away with when you're famous, I was more than ready to see what this inspirational group of women were presenting as a pure theatrical confection. And delicious it was! (more...)

BWW Review: Porchlight's MARRY ME A LITTLE is a Rhapsodic Love Letter to Sondheim's Song Catalog
by Rachel Weinberg - Apr 26, 2017

True blue fans of Stephen Sondheim (this reviewer included) will be drooling over Porchlight's latest offering MARRY ME A LITTLE. This two-hander revue showcases a number of Sondheim's finest trunk songs-early renditions of numbers that were cut from such musicals as FOLLIES, INTO THE WOODS and MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG. Conceived and developed by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene, MARRY ME A LITTLE (which has been revised for this production) introduces audiences to two lonely singles in New York City-known merely as "The Man" and "The Woman." Living just an apartment floor away, these two lament their loneliness, and it becomes up to audiences to decide if the relationship that transpires in the show is real or imagined. The details are a bit foggy as MARRY ME A LITTLE has no dialogue whatsoever, but the piece is ultimately designed to showcase Sondheim's work. (more...)
