BWW Review: PLAZA SUITE at Little Theatre Of Mechanicsburg
by Allison Rambler - Jan 20, 2017

The Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg sits plainly on the side of a small road in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, unassuming to all those who pass by. It does not flaunt itself on flashing advertisements or a grandiose outward facade, and this in fact adds to the effortless charm that meets a theatre-goer as soon as they step through the door. But while the stage itself may be lacking in size, the performances presented there compensate for space with an abundance of talent. While the reviewer has only been privilege to one show at this establishment thus far, she is glad that she was treated to the vastly entertaining humor of PLAZA SUITE by Neil Simon. (more...)

New Step UP Bike Combines a Stair Stepper and Bike for Superior Workout Experience
by BWW News Desk - Jan 19, 2017

Franklin, Mi: The Step UP Bike was invented by a mechanical engineer employed at one of the auto manufacturing companies located in Detroit Michigan. The idea was born out of need for exercise that could match that of running without the impact. Many people who enjoy running, experience pain and inflammation in their joints caused from the consistent 'high impact' of running. Many exercise enthusiasts and marathon runners are looking for stimulating exercise that treadmills and ellipticals don't deliver. That's how the Step Up was born. By combining the stepping function of a stair master and putting the rail system on a bicycle, the desired non-impact stimulating workout is achieved. (more...)
