BWW Interview: Kristen Hahn: The Many Layers of Sgt. Sarah Brown
by Carla Maria Verdino-SŁllwold - Jun 27, 2017

"She's a wonderfully layered character," Kristen Hahn exclaims as she describes her newest role. "Most of all in her heart she wants to help people, but she is not quite cut out to rule with an iron fist like her mentor, General Cartwright. I think at first she is feeling a little lost and not willing to admit it. When she meets Sky Masterson, they go head-to-head. She is probably the first woman to challenge him. As the play develops, she realizes maybe she can have both her mission work and love. By letting her hair down a little when she discovers love, she realizes that she becomes of better use to the people she wants to help. It is very liberating for her. Sarah Brown is a strong lady, and that is a wonderful treat for an actress to play!" she concludes. (more...)

'101 Ways To Improve Your Health With Body Work: Your Complete Guide to Complementary & Alternative Therapies' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2017

Loving Healing Press just published '101 Ways To Improve Your Health With Body Work: Your Complete Guide to Complementary & Alternative Therapies,' the fourth book from author Alan Smith. It is the first release of a new, three-book series examining the world of CAM. Designed for people interested in learning about the field of body therapies with short, to-the-point listings, the book capitalizes on current publishing trends. According to the author, Alan Smith, 'My publisher believes that smaller books that are more focused on a particular subject are the hot new trend for readers. This is the first in the series that will look at the world of complementary and alternative medicine through the filters of body, mind and spirit/energy therapies. We've started with body therapies because I think most people can easily understand and appreciate them.' A sample of the book taken from the introduction explains the book's premise: 'This book is all about hope. From ancient healing therapies to the latest American innovations, you have more options for great health today than ever before. Complementary and alternative therapies, known as CAM, are about more than just improving your health. These therapies are about helping you rediscover the Joy, the wonder and the beauty of living. 'Perhaps the aches and pains that caused you to stumble are caused from your body being out of alignment in some way so it's a body issue. Maybe an emotional issue or traumatic life experience is seeking resolution by expressing itself through the body, so it could be a mind issue. Or your life force energy could be blocked in some way resulting in a physical problem so it could be a spirit or energy issue. 'In this guide you'll find information new and old and begin to see patterns between therapies that are consistent through thousands of years and across civilizations around the world. The most basic concept is that you are the sum of your Mind-Body-Spirit. Your parts cannot be disconnected so a problem in one area can mean problems in all areas. Holistic (or whole-istic) therapies are effective because they address all of you. Many of these complementary and alternative therapies work to prevent problems or correct them as soon as possible to prevent them from growing into serious issues. This is a very different approach from medicine in America today which is based on fee-for-service. 'Once you start talking with friends and family about these new options it seems like everybody knows somebody who's experienced success, sometimes miraculous success, with a complementary or alternative therapy. While writing this book, I've been amazed at the stories from friends and yet we still seem to talk about CAM in whispers, as if it's something normal people don't discuss in public. I hope this book brings complementary and alternative therapies out of the shadows and into the light of day so more people can discover a healthier, happier new life.' Earlier works by the same author include 'How To UnBreak Your Health' which is now in its second edition and an e-novella entitled 'Susan's Search.' All of Smith's books can be found on Amazon.com.

BWW Review: BASTARD JONES Rocks the House at the Cell Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jun 25, 2017

"It's not unusual to be loved by anyone¬Ö" Admittedly, this is the wrong Tom Jones and yes, I may have stolen this little pun from the show's opening narrative, but that Mr. Jones was on the perfect track to describing what chaos ensues in the life of a man whom everyone adores: the literary Tom Jones. A man who cannot limit his constant self-indulgence but is yet still seen as a good man despite his ill reputed sexual conquests. As a disgrace to both his family and a disappointment to those who truly feel for him, his reputation is one that follows him as a sort of fate; and to reverse fate, some pretty drastic things have to happen. Turn all of this into a musical and what we now have is Bastard Jones, an incredibly clever, zany and sexy raucous of a show that is as funny as it is profound. Now in performances at the Cell, this is just the sort of guilty fun that everyone is looking for and, for a little over two hours, will bring such Joy to your heart and a "tingle" to everywhere else - prepare yourselves indeed.
