Let there be laughter! The first five books of the Old Testament get a good-natured ribbing in this hysterical tribute to all of those ordinary, everyday people who didn't make it into the Bible.

Unremarkable though they may be, these hardy Biblical bystanders somehow survive calamity after calamity in outrageous fashion, inventing some useful and practical devices along the way (including the Life Saver--the candy, that is), escaping enslavement in ancient Egypt and helping a young man named Cain find his redemption.

This could not be clearer than in Broom Street's newest production written by former Wisconsinite Brian Leahy Doyle.

by BWW News Desk - Feb 13, 2015

Susie S. Mozell-Smith is proud to announce the release of her novel, 'Lily Grace: The Prophetic Word of God.' The author explains how the novel 'Lily Grace' is a supernatural book given to her by God to prove that God and Science coexist. 'The book contains scientific and spiritual knowledge about creation and serves as proof that we are now officially In the Beginning of the end of time.' -Susie S. Mozell-Smith. The book trailer for 'Lily Grace' was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news. In addition, Mozell-Smith shared her insights in an interview this week on the Reading and Writing Addiction blog about the inspiration for 'Lily Grace.' Susie S. Mozell-Smith's interview can be followed at www.readinwritin.blogspot.com and the official trailer for 'Lily Grace' can be viewed on YouTube. About The Book In 'Lily Grace' Mozell-Smith reveals her revelation on the mystery of how God created the Universe, the original race of man and the forbidden fruit. The novel 'gives proof to eliminate the Big Bang and Gap Theories and the truth about UFOs, aliens and so much more, all backed by scripture.' states Mozell-Smith. 'I am writing to the world to share a testimony that is supernatural and to give the world some information from God. I have been trying to get a message to the world now for nearly two years and for the most part people are not taking me seriously, but God has done a new thing in the Earth just as he said he would,' explains Susie S. Mozell-Smith, Author of Lily Grace: The Prophetic Word of God. Praise for 'Lily Grace': 'Trust me when I tell you textbooks and the way we view this world will change once this book circulates the globe.' - Legendary Moments, Amazon reviews About The Author Susie S. Mozell-Smith is a devoted Christian who has a strong faith in God. 'Lily Grace: The Prophetic Word of God, Paving the Way for Jesus Return' is her first book. The author was inspired by her faith in God to write the book after experiencing a supernatural encounter on February 27, 2013 around 12:30 am in the parking lot of a local store in Tifton, Georgia while enduring a trial in her life. The author said to God, 'You have done so much for me and I want to do something for you.' She then asked God, 'What can I do for you?' Then she said, 'I will rest here for a while and wait to hear from you' and in about five minutes, Mozell-Smith believes that God spoke these three words to her, 'write a book.' For seven months, the author states that she was 'surprised by how God guided and instructed her by the Holy Spirit in writing the book Lily Grace.' 'Lily Grace: The Prophetic Word of God' (314 pages, ISBN: 978-0615869148) is available online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Books a Million. To learn more about Susie S.

Gallery Players' latest play takes big ideas and historical events -- who invented television and how -- and turns them into a very intimate look at two men and their race to make the impossible possible. From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, The Farnsworth Invention is equal parts character study, history lesson (albeit not 100% historically accurate), and moving drama. Premiering May 2 at 8 pm in the Roth/Resler Theater of the JCC, the play tells the story of the invention of television from the perspective of its inventor, Philo T. Farnsworth, and his rival, RCA president and early radio pioneer, David Sarnoff. (more...)
