BWW Reviews: Group Rep Presents a Gripping STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Don Grigware - Jul 28, 2014

Tennessee Williams' classic A Streetcar Named Desire is revered as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century with Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, two of the most fascinating characters in theatrical history. Written in the 40s, the play does have many dated elements, but given a taut, well-honed production, its beautifully poetic passages still inspire...and its raw passions can ignite fireworks. Now onstage at the group rep in NoHo, Streetcar may be a daring choice for this company, but under L. Flint Esquerra's caring and detailed direction and with four actors perfectly cast in the lead roles, it is something to sing about. (more...)

Lee Adams and Charles Strouse wrote the music and lyrics of Bye Bye Birdie to honor a generation of fans who swooned and literally gave themselves over to the rock and roll of Elvis Presley.

Marriage Equality Subject of New Book by Utah Author Randy Jernigan
by BWW News Desk - Jul 20, 2014

Creative Partners Publishing announces the upcoming book on marriage equality, 'Freedom to Love' by author and journalist Randy Jernigan. Same-sex marriage has been a polarizing issue as some States go through the legal system to have it banned while others have embraced the movement. Jernigan's objective in writing about this dilemma is to present both sides with the intent that education will open dialogue and stop the arguments. While Jernigan is pro equal marriage opportunities, he is adamant that an unbiased representation of both sides will not only promote well-informed discussions, but will help those on both sides of the issue feel better about what they believe. Interviews with high level officials include US and State Senators, Religious leaders, constitutional Attorneys and celebrities. A balanced cross-section of beliefs and views will be explored and shared on this highly controversial subject. Jernigan believes this is a political and constitutional topic as well as religious and as the pros and cons are presented in an impartial and non-confrontational forum, the channel of communication can be opened. Along with 'Lessons from the Journey,' the second book in the popular Happiness Gift Book Set, Jernigan has a best seller chronicling his dramatic 161 pound weight loss. 'Losing to Win' includes many recipes that helped him achieve his goal to get his life back. For the past 22 years Jernigan has written for numerous life style, health and history magazines with a partiality to reporting on the lives of celebrities and political figures. He also has two screen plays to his credit and is working on other film projects. His work is well known and sought after in journalistic circles, partly due to the unbiased approach to his stories. He is currently writing the first Fan book on the life and career of Daniel Radcliff, a series that will spotlight the charitable and inspiring qualities of each celebrity chosen for this honor.
