BWW Review: Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre and St. Paul's Ordway Center Bring Us a Reinvigorated PAINT YOUR WAGON About the Diverse Cultures that Built the American West
by Jill Schafer - Aug 19, 2016

I had never even heard of the 1951 Lerner and Loewe musical PAINT YOUR WAGON when the Ordway announced it as part of their season. I guess that's not too surprising; it ran for less than a year on Broadway and has never been revived. The story was significantly rewritten for the 1969 movie adaptation starring Clint Eastwood, which also included a few new songs. Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre scrapped both the original and revised book (they're a little bit racist, and sexist) to write a new story set in the Gold Rush era of California, making it more reflective of the many diverse cultures that came together to build the great American West. This production has moved to the Ordway for two weeks, with a few local additions to the cast. This thrilling story of the beginnings of the American West with a beautifully diverse cast has rescued this gorgeous Western and Mexican influenced score from the place where problematic old musicals go to die.

Crystal Hills Organics Launches Healing Crystals in Body Care
by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2016

Crystal Hills Organics is starting a hot new trend in body care by synergistically blending exquisite flowers, beneficial herbs, and high-vibration crystals. Founder and CEO of Crystal Hills Organics, Andrea Sazwan, says the products are truly unique as their formulas are made by incorporating the active constituents of botanicals as well as the healing energetic traits of crystals. Sazwan says her mission is to promote a health-conscious lifestyle that promotes the healing powers of nature and the high vibration of crystals. In addition to their body care products, Crystal Hills also has a blog that features DIY beauty, healthy recipes, wellness and information on crystals and botanicals. She really wants people to get back to basics and incorporate a bit of nature to experience optimum health in their lives. Even though her background is in biosciences and occupational health and safety, Sazwan says that one of her true passions has been learning about traditional remedies and natural alternatives that complement modern medicine. She went on to become a chartered herbalist and reiki master healer, and then studied organic skincare formulation. She loves reading about ancient methods and discovering what past healers may have used. Gathering information about crystals has definitely been one of her favourites. 'Since ancient times, crystals have been prized for their beauty, to symbolize power and for their healing capabilities. These days, it seems that more and more of humanity is rediscovering their special qualities to help restore balance in our hectic and stressful lives.' She believes that what we apply on our body is just as important as the food we eat in restoring and maintaining the body's Harmony and vitality. It's with these ideals that Crystal Hills Organics was formed. For more information, please visit crystalhills.com/ You Tube: www.youtube.com/channel/UCyIQ_d7pFXK7UFDmJHAjpNw (more...)

BWW Review: Lamplighters' NEW MIKADO is Excellence Itself
by Harmony Wheeler - Aug 16, 2016

There has been plenty of talk about the "lack of sensitivity" in Gilbert and Sullivan's British farce, "The Mikado," set in a Japan most often comprised of a white ensemble. But - as ready as this critic may be to defend the "great and virtuous man" - this review must sing the praises of a "new," albeit familiar Mikado, or rather, Ducato. Lamplighters Music Theatre has reset the operetta to Tiramisu, Milan, and what an excellent production it is. The music and story are as enjoyable as ever, but half the fun comes from discovery of reinvented names and slight references to the original.  Not to mention Ellen Brook's fresh direction of a show that Lamplights has produced - with equal excellence - multiple times.  (more...)
