Jamaica is a musical with a book by Yip Harburg and Fred Saidy, lyrics by Harburg, and music by Harold Arlen. Harburg was blacklisted in Hollywood at the time of the writing of the musical. Set on a small island off the coast of Jamaica, the musical tells about a simple island community fighting to avoid being overrun by American commercialism.



Arlen's music parodies the popular form of Calypso, which was in vogue in the 1950s, largely as a result of the popularity of Harry Belafonte, for whom the musical was originally written. Belafonte withdrew from the production due to illness, and the musical was then tailored around the talents of Lena Horne.

BWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is Perfect Blend of Classic Theatrical MagicBWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is Perfect Blend of Classic Theatrical Magic
by Matt Tamanini - Nov 20, 2014

One of the most magical places that I have ever been is Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. It's not a fancy place, just a simple town in which people go about their business, but are always willing to stop and chat about the weather. Grover's Corners is the epitome of a way of life that has long since ceased to exist, if it ever actually did in the first place. However, despite its quantness and surface simplicity, every time I go back to visit, I find more and more depth in the town than I ever remembered being there before. Perhaps this is a simple byproduct of my own aging, but each time I stop by Grover's Corners, I fall more and more in love with this mythical, magical town. (more...)

New Season of South Bend's Lunkerville on NBC Sports NetworkNew Season of South Bend's Lunkerville on NBC Sports Network
by BWW News Desk - Jan 10, 2015

The internationally syndicated television show South Bend's Lunkerville is back for another broadcast season on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) and adds Comcast Sports Network/Chicago to its expanding list of broadcast partners, including World Fishing Network and PBS. South Bend's Lunkerville will air Thursdays at 2pm EST on NBCSN and Tuesdays at 2:30pm CST on CSN/Chicago. Lunkerville was first asked to join NBCSN as part of their inaugural outdoor programming lineup in January 2012. And the show with the curious name and award-winning storytelling continues to make the short list of fishing shows to air on the world's largest sports network. Reaching more than 82 million television households weekly on cable and satellite systems throughout the United States, the addition of Comcast Sports Network/Chicago reels in another 4.2 million households to its viewing audience. 'Lunkerville is a really unique show that's entertaining as well as informative. Its concept is anything but cookie-cutter and that makes it fun to watch for non-anglers as well as fishing enthusiasts because you never know what you're going to see each week,' explains Jeff Macaluso, Senior Director, Programming for NBC Sports Group. 'And you can't get a more likable host than Mike D. He makes his guests feel like old friends and that makes viewers feel right at home no matter where the show takes them geographically.' 'NBC Sports is the most recognizable name in sports television and we're thrilled to be invited back for another broadcast season!' says Michael de Avila (aka, Mike D), Lunkerville's creator, host and co-producer. 'This year's episodes are among the best ever: we mix up fish species and travel across the USA, up to Canada and down to Jamaica and feature a broad spectrum of everyday folks who love to fish. From river stripers caught with the help of a salty veteran angler, to largemouth bass with a teenage fishing cheerleader, to urban carp with a local doorman in the middle of NYC, this season has it all!' About Lunkerville When Indie film director Michael de Avila hooked his passion for story telling onto his love of bass fishing, he spawned an award-winning reality television show, Lunkerville. While other fishing shows rely on fast-paced pro-tournament competition, host 'Mike D' casts his line at everyday, recreational fishermen, traveling to their secret spots and sharing their special techniques. In his signature laid-back manner, he reels in the camaraderie, the banter and the fish. Shot with his filmmaker's eye and touch, every episode is treated as a short documentary film. In 2009, Lunkerville earned a CINE Golden Eagle for documentary filmmaking; one of the most coveted awards in television. South Bend's Lunkerville is a production of Rockville Pictures Inc. For more information, visit www.lunkerville.com. About NBC Sports Network NBCSN, part of the NBC Sports Group, is dedicated to serving passionate sports fans. Now in more than 85 million homes, the Emmy Award-winning network is the cable television home of the Summer and Winter Olympics, National Hockey League (NHL) - including two games of the Stanley Cup Final Premier League, Formula One, IndyCar, Tour de France, the 34th America's Cup, and beginning in 2015, NASCAR.
