Michael Ball makes his West End debut as a producer after falling in love with the enchanting new British musical, Love Story.

Now following a critically acclaimed sell-out season at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Love Story transfers to the West End for a limited season from 27 November 2010 – 26 February 2011.

Inspired by Erich Segal’s best-selling iconic novel and one of the most romantic films of all time, this life-affirming musical is scored by the Emmy and BAFTA award winning composer Howard Goodall with lyrics by Stephen Clark.

Oliver Barrett IV went to Harvard and Jenny Cavilleri to Radcliffe. He was rich, she was poor. He was sporty, she played music. But they fell in love. This is their story. A celebration of love and life, Love Story will win your heart. And it might just break it.

BWW Reviews: OKLAHOMA! Kicks off Torrance Theatre Company's 15th Anniversary Season in Great Style
by Shari Barrett - Aug 24, 2014

Torrance Theatre Company celebrates its 15th anniversary by saddling up at the James Armstrong Theatre and presenting OKLAHOMA! with music and lyrics by one of Broadway's most influential duos, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. Based on Lynn Riggs' stage play, Green Grow the Lilacs, OKLAHOMA! marked the duo's first collaboration and set the standard for modern musical theatre. Although not the first musical to tell a story of emotional depth and psychological complexity, OKLAHOMA! introduced a number of new storytelling elements and techniques including the use of song and dance to convey plot and character rather than act as a diversion from the story, and the firm integration of every song into the plot-line. And most important, they introduced a new element to musical theatre: social commentary. (more...)

Simone Freier Releases Experiences Series
by BWW News Desk - Aug 21, 2014

OTK Publications is pleased to announce that their newest author, Simone Freier, has published the first three books in her Experiences series - contemporary erotic romance novels that combine detailed and intimate exploration of kinks and fetishes with thoughtful and philosophical discussion by the characters. Suitable for mature readers, aged 18+ years. The Experiences series is an epic Love Story of erotic relationships and sexual desires. Written in a 'literary realism' style, the series introduces Sam in the prequel, and the blossoming of his intimate relationship with Kelly as the series progresses. Fantasies and real-world adventures coalesce to mold a unique bond between unlikely lovers. Where needs are mutually satisfied in an open, creative and trusting environment. Where physical and mental boundaries are pushed. Where the concepts of love and sex are never confused, but sometimes confusing. Where openness is required and intimacy is expected. And where fair-is-fair, regarding the punishment of transgressions. Origins of a Fetish (Book 1) is the prequel to the story of Kelly, 27000 words, 7 chapters, and approx. 104 pages (print version). First Experience (Book 2) runs 111,000 words, 17 chapters, and 374 pages (print version), while Weekend Experience (Book 3) runs 100,000 words, 17 chapters, and 336 pages (print version). Books 2 and 3 are continuations of the story, where Sam and Kelly develop a romantic relationship while exploring their BDSM (dominance and submission, spanking, and medical fetish) fantasies. The Experiences series will include approximately 10 books, and run nearly 1,000,000 words. Books will be released monthly, and available at Amazon and other fine book retailers. OTK Publications is a boutique publishing house that specializes in erotica and erotic romance novels in both eBook and paperback formats. (more...)

Texas Author Releases New Literary Fiction Novel Set in Africa – 'The Sands Of Katambora'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 17, 2014

"The Sands of Katambora" is a sentimental story about overcoming obstacles and pursuing a greater good. It will touch your heart, excite your senses, and open your eyes not only to the beauty of the African landscape, but also to the ways wildlife and wild spaces are affected by human behavior. It has a powerful, prescient message of the devastation caused by modern ivory, rhino horn poaching and loss of habitat occurring in today's Africa. The story is set in Central Africa, along the Zambezi River, and is about the BaTonga people, who worship the River God, Nyaminyami. A dragon-like creature with a snake torso and a fish-shaped head, the BaTonga believe he controls their lives, and he is rumored to cast a spell on anyone who sets foot in the Zambezi valley. And so it was that Colin Somerset fell under her spell, and was bound to Nyaminyami for his entire life and throughout all of his endeavors. After first coming to the valley at age five, he dedicated himself to improving the quality of life for his beloved BaTonga people, and to protecting the land and wildlife held under her dominion. Set on transforming his family's business from hunting safaris to photographic safaris, Colin encounters tremendous struggles, opposition, and resistance from those around him, and experiences turmoil in his own personal relationships. A must-read for anyone interested in Africa, its people and landscape, "The Sands of Katambora" tells a compelling Love Story with a timely message about conserving the world's wildlife and wild spaces. "The Sands of Katambora" is available in print and ebook format. Book Information: The Sands Of Katambora By Rory Johnston ISBN: 978-1494402761 ASIN: B00J06SZP2 Published: March 2014 Pages: 203 (193) Genre: Literary Fiction About The Author: Author Rory Johnston has spent a great amount of time in Africa, and has a deep respect and appreciation for its landscape, peoples, and wildlife. He grew up in the safari business, and, as a child, accompanied his parents on trips to some of the most remote and rarely visited regions of the continent. Johnston writes about love and personal relationships, and has been able to cleverly weave his knowledge of Africa and his respect for its land, people, and wildlife into his fiction. He wrote three short stories: Growing Up in Africa, A Major Hoodwink, and co-wrote It Happened at Squeedunc Plantation with his wife, Virginia Doyle. His first novel in a series, "The Sands of Katambora," is soon to joined by the second, "Katambora Rising."

Skylight Books Celebrates Charles Bukowski's Birthday, 8/16
by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2014

Skylight Books (1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz) will celebrate what would have been the 94th birthday of literary legend Charles Bukowski (born August 16, 1920). Skylight Books, recently named one of the best bookstores in America by USA Today, will throw a party on Saturday, August 16 at 5pm. The evening will feature writers Jerry Stahl, Richard Lange, and Dan Fante, reading excerpts of their favorite Bukowski works. A birthday cake and tasty beverages will also be served, thanks to sponsor, Ecco, who just published new editions of three of Bukowski's most popular novels. Charles Bukowski is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for fifty years. He published his first story in 1944 when he was twenty-four and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp. Jerry Stahl is the author of the narcotic memoir Permanent Midnight and Perv-a Love Story, both Los Angeles Times bestsellers, as well as the acclaimed novels Pain Killers, Plainclothes Naked, and I, Fatty. He has written extensively for film and television. Richard Lange is the author of the story collection Dead Boys, which received an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the novels This Wicked World and Angel Baby. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, and his fiction has appeared in Best American Mystery Stories 2004 and 2011. He lives in Los Angeles. Dan Fante is the author of the memoir Fante, the novels 86'd, Chump Change, Mooch, and Spitting Off Tall Buildings, and several books of poetry, short stories, and plays. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son. The event is on August 16 at 5pm. It's free and open to the public. Skylight Books is located at 1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz (cross is Franklin), 323-660-1175. (more...)
