BWW Review: New Epic Theater Continues the Story begun with the Strikingly Beautiful THE NORMAL HEART in a Bloody Good CORIONALUSBWW Review: New Epic Theater Continues the Story begun with the Strikingly Beautiful THE NORMAL HEART in a Bloody Good CORIONALUS
by Jill Schafer - Apr 5, 2016

The weekend before last, New Epic Theater opened a strikingly beautiful and devastating production of the 1985 Off-Broadway play THE NORMAL HEART about the early days of the AIDS crisis. Last weekend they opened part two of their ambitious spring repertory production, Shakespeare's CORIOLANUS. The two plays share the same terrific eight-person cast, innovative and distinctive director Joseph Stodola, performance space, set, and overall look. Separated in time by about 400 years, THE NORMAL HEART and CORIOLANUS are in some ways similar and in other ways very different. Both continue the trajectory that this new company has set right out of the gate with visually and emotionally impactful work. The two plays will be performed in rep for the next two weekends, culminating in both shows being performed back-to-back on Saturday April 16. Friends, New Epic Theater is an exciting new addition to our bountiful theater community and I urge you to see one or both of these plays to experience their unique vision. (more...)

Creating A Writing Life Program Celebrates 10 YearsCreating A Writing Life Program Celebrates 10 Years
by BWW News Desk - Apr 27, 2016

Creating A Writing Life programs have been part of Connecticut's shoreline community since 2007 when writer Patricia Ann Chaffee first offered a series through Stonington Adult Education. Since then Creating A Writing life programs have been offered in the form of library workshops, weekly writing groups, presentations to small business organizations, but mostly as retreats for emerging writers. This year she celebrates 10 years of inspiring and empowering writers to tap into their own unique literary gifts. 'Everyone knows someone who wants to be a writer,' said Chaffee. 'But it's those folks who are really passionate about the craft that find their way to these retreats. The writers that gather together are not always experienced and not always published, although some are, but they are honoring that passion in taking this step to nurture their writing life, and that's what's so exciting.' In past years, it had evolved into an annual event that filled up fast, but this year, several different writing events are being offered to celebrate the anniversary of Creating A Writing Life. Writers working in all genres who are interested in taking their writing to the next level attend the events that are always in an extraordinary location and usually on or near Long Island Sound. The gathering creates an opportunity to network with other writers, learn ways to overcome the challenges of the writing life, and of course a chance to write in a small group setting that is both encouraging and inspiring. Creating a Writing Life programs are facilitated by Old Saybrook resident Patricia Ann Chaffee, a freelance writer and former journalist and columnist. During each event there is a guest speaker from the literary world who shares their expertise and story. Special guest speaker for the upcoming retreat at Mercy By the Sea in Madison, will be award winning poet and novelist, Leslie M. Browning. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Independent Book Publishers Association, is partner at Hiraeth Press; Co-Founder of Written River: An Anthology of Eco-Poetics, as well as Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Wayfarer. Browning opened Homebound Publications in 2011, publishing the work of emerging writers as well as Gunilla Norris, Ann Nyberg and others. In 2015 she established Owl House Books as an imprint of Homebound Publications located in Pawcatuck, devoted to children's literature. The all-inclusive retreat is being held Saturday, June 18 from 9:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. and the cost is $145. Registration deadline is June 4th. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Stroke Association. A second retreat, is planned for July 30. For more information or to register for the Creating a Writing Life Retreat, visit www.CreatingAWritingLife.com or call (860) 536-0051. (more...)

Spine Surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, M.D., Completes Book SeriesSpine Surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, M.D., Completes Book Series
by BWW News Desk - Apr 26, 2016

With Americans bearing $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, and about eight million of them in default, 43-year-old spine surgeon, Dr. Roderick Claybrooks, reveals tips on how to manage student loan debt and more with the completion of his three-book series adding 'The Black Student's Guide to Financial Success,' and 'The Black Parent's Guide To Financial Success' to the existing 'The Black Student's Guide To Success,' all available at Amazon.com and www.blackstudentsguide.com. The book series comprises three motivational titles, covering an array of topics for success, birthed after Dr. Claybrooks encountered several patients in the emergency rooms of Detroit that were living beneath their potential, and not maximizing their gifts. 'I decided to add the financial guide to success books because I believe that freedom is everyone's birthright,' says Claybrooks. 'Many African Americans lack control of their finances thus bound by the shackles of financial bondage.' The goal is to help the reader understand how money works in the world, how to manage money, how to invest, and overall, how to navigate successfully through life by making informed and effective decisions for long-term success. There are many political debates and studies being held due to the outrageous student-loan debt and default, in particular, the effect it has on minorities. Dr. Claybrooks, a contributing writer for www.Elev8.com states, 'The average white family has ten times the net worth of the average African American family. That's about one hundred to one hundred ten thousand dollars for whites compared to ten to eleven thousand dollars for blacks.' According to a study, led by Micere Keels, associate professor in comparative human development at the University of Chicago, 'More than 500 Black and Latino college students has confirmed that many encounter obstacles after enrolling in college without adequate financial resources.' 2016 presidential candidates are also revealing plans to help graduates with their student loan burdens. The Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton's New College Compact proposal, would cost $350 million over ten years to get rid of some of the financial burdens that students face when borrowing money for tuition. Jeb Bush wants to end student loan debt before it even begins by providing less expensive higher education options. While democratic hopeful, Martin O'Malley, would like to help alleviate student loan debt by providing more affordable options as well as better plans to repay debt. Although it is great to see the concern, Dr. Claybrooks believes no one is dealing with the obvious. He says, 'Financial literacy starts at home, and is a topic that needs to be addressed with urgency in the black community.' When asked why he did not stay in his lane and just write medical books, Claybrooks explains, 'I have a tendency to write about things that seem to be great areas of struggle in the lives of the many people that I encounter. It's like an iceberg. There may be a small tip on the surface but there's something much bigger underneath.' His book series stems from real life situations. They are guides to educate, encourage, and edify, with realistic suggestions and results, for those serious about succeeding in school and beyond. 'Being a physician allows me to interact with people from a wide range of backgrounds. I've taken care of preachers, politicians, lawyers and criminals. I've treated the world famous as well as obscure individuals,' explains Claybrooks. 'For the most part, people have a high level of trust in their doctor. People literally trust us with their lives. This intersection of health and humanity allows me to see beyond disease and into the core of the makeup of people's lives.' His passion to be successful, and his ability to contribute to the African American race, is a responsibility he will always contribute to and fight for. 'I understand that my encounters with a very small percentage of the population, if extrapolated across this entire country, means that hundreds of thousands and likely millions of others are experiencing the same struggles I see in the people that I engage,' says Claybrooks. As a group, Dr. Claybrooks feels African Americans should place a significant amount of emphasis on discrimination and equal rights, however, not at the expense of economic empowerment. 'Until we (African Americans) are financially secure, we will always be at the Mercy of others,' states Claybrooks. 'Wealth and finance provide a degree of autonomy and control over our lives that few other things can.' (more...)

BWW Fitness News: Pro Athletes to Speak at NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, 5/7-8BWW Fitness News: Pro Athletes to Speak at NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, 5/7-8
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2016

Elite pro athletes who fuel their feats exclusively on plant-based diets will be among the presenters at the sixth annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. Christine Vardaros, a champion cyclist, will speak on 'How Pro Athletes Do It.' She began her cycling career in 1996 as a mountain biker for Team Breezer run by Joe Breeze. In 2000 she became a vegan, but it didn't slow her down. After transitioning to road biking and cyclo-cross, she went on to represent USA Cycling at three World Cyclo-Cross Championships as well as more than 25 World Cups. When not out pedaling, Vardaros is a spokesperson for In Defense of Animals, the Vegan Society, and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. A native New Yorker, she now makes her home in Everberg, Belgium. Another athlete scheduled to speak at the Festival is Omowale Adewale, a professional boxer. His talk is entitled 'Champion Vegan Nutrition.' Adewale became a vegetarian when he was 15, before getting involved in competitive sports. He taught himself Jeet Kune Do, a form of martial arts, and was also a national finalist in the 1997 Body Building of America competition. In 2012, he became a Super Middleweight Champion in the Brooklyn Brawl. And a few years later, he decided to cut dairy products from his diet to become fully vegan. He now coaches others, both in how to box and in how to go vegan. He and his wife are raising three vegetarian children. In addition to showcasing the athletes, the Festival will feature speakers on a variety of topics such as animal advocacy, plant-based cooking techniques, and medical research into the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle. A large part of the Festival pavilion will be devoted to vegan vendors, many of whom offer free food samples to attendees. Non-profit organizations will also staff tables with literature about their activities. This year's charity partner is Mercy For Animals, which will receive proceeds from the Festival raffle. The event is family-friendly, with a special area devoted to children's arts and crafts activities. There will also be performances by a comedian, an illusionist, and other entertainers. The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was launched in 2011. It is presented by U.S. Veg Corp, an event-planning company which also sponsors Vegan Drinks Brooklyn, various cooking competitions, and Meatless Monday meals at local restaurants.

BWW Review: First Stage Young Company Presents Stunning, Superb ANTIGONEBWW Review: First Stage Young Company Presents Stunning, Superb ANTIGONE
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Apr 15, 2016

Antigone--an ancient play first written by Sophocles in approximately 400 B.C.--challenges audiences in the 21st century and centers around strong women, political drama, and difficult moral choices necessary for the characters to choose. This classic play dramatically illustrates that over centuries, humanity changes little with modern circumstances. First Stage Young Company tackles this acclaimed tragedy under Joshua Pohja's direction by choosing modern language using a translation from the prestigious French dramatist Jean Anouilh written in 1943. Anouilh often centered his stories on idealistic youth, in this play a young princess, who fights for a divine and personal morality over royal social compromise. Pohja dedicated the production to young Middle Eastern women, similar to Malala who also raised her singular voice against her adversaries even under threat of death. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2016

A roster of eight highly credentialed physicians will grace the stages at the sixth annual New York City Vegetarian Food Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. Festival co-founder and organizer Sarah Gross said the medical emphasis at this year's event is due to the rising mountain of evidence that a vegan diet is ideal for one's health. 'We energetic vegans have known this in our bones for quite awhile, but it's nice to be validated by the medical community,' she said. The doctors scheduled to speak at the Festival include: • Aysha Akhtar, double Board-certified neurologist and preventive medicine/public health specialist, author of Animals and Public Health, Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, Lieutenant Commander in the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and regular blogger for the Huffington Post. She received her training at Eastern Virginia Medical School, Washington Hospital Center, and the University of North Carolina Medical School in Chapel Hill. • Michelle McMacken, Board-certified internal medicine physician, assistant professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine, and honors graduate of Yale University and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She has more than ten years of experience practicing primary care, directing a medical weight-loss program, and teaching doctors-in-training at Bellevue Hospital Center in NYC. • Michael Greger, Cornell- and Tufts-trained general practitioner, founding member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and author of the books Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching and Carbophobia: The Scary Truth Behind America's Low Carb Craze. His latest book, How Not to Die, became an instant New York Times Best Seller. • Robert Ostfeld, associate professor of Clinical Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, director of the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center, and associate director of the Cardiology Fellowship at Montefiore-Einstein. He received his training from the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University School of Medicine, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School. • Casey Taft, professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine, associate editor of the journal Psychological Trauma, board member of The War Writers' Campaign, consultant to the United Nations on preventing violence and abuse globally, and manager of Vegan Publishers. He sees the prevention of violence towards animals as a natural extension of his work. • Thomas Campbell, medical director of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, co-founder and clinical director of the University of Rochester Program for Nutrition in Medicine, Board-certified family physician, and co-author of The China Study. His training is from SUNY Buffalo School of Medicine, the University of Rochester, and Cornell University. • Garth Davis, fellow of the American College of Surgeons, fellow of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, co-star of the docu-reality television series Big Medicine, and author of The Expert's Guide to Weight Loss Surgery and Proteinaholic. He received his training from the University of Texas in Austin, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. • Steve Neabore serves on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and specializes in the prevention and treatment of acute and chronic diseases. He completed his undergraduate degree at New York University and earned his medical degree from St. George's University, with a residency in internal medicine at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn. The Festival will also feature other speakers on a variety of topics such as animal advocacy, vegan cooking techniques, and motivational tips from professional athletes. A large part of the pavilion will be devoted to vegan vendors, many of whom will be offering free food samples to attendees. Non-profit organizations will also staff tables with literature about their activities. This year's charity partner is Mercy For Animals, which will receive proceeds from the Festival raffle. Festival Co-Founder Nira Paliwoda noted the event is family-friendly, with a special area devoted to children's arts and crafts activities. There will also be performances by a comedian, an illusionist, and other entertainers. For more information about the Festival or to purchase tickets, go to http://nycvegfoodfest.com/. (more...)
