Adam B. Ford Releases Children's Book, MOLLY RIDES
by BWW News Desk - Feb 24, 2014

Is snowboarding dying? Not for Molly, the intrepid heroine of 'Molly Rides.' And not for Adam B. Ford, the author, who has been snowboardingand teaching snowboardingfor nearly 20 years. 'It's sad to see the decline in numbers of snowboarders at ski areas,' says Ford. 'And it's frustrating to watch the industry still market the sport as a fringe or 'extreme' activity targeted at teen and 20-something males. Girls can play too!' Ford picked a young girl as his protagonist intentionally, and realizes that sometimes kids might need a little extra push to get going. 'It was incredibly exciting to watch Kaitlyn Farrington take the Gold Medal in the Women's Halfpipe at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia,' says Ford, 'but it was equally exciting to learn that one of the things that made her determined to ride was kids laughing at her from the lift as she learned. There's a page in 'Molly Rides' which depicts exactly that, and if Molly can be used as an inspiration for anyone who wants to learn how to snowboard, well, I'd be happy with that.' The book was written and illustrated (by award-winning artist Brian Berley) with the blessing of the Professional Ski Instructors of America and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors. PSIA-AASI is the world's largest grass roots organization of more than 31,400 snowsports professionals who give people the gift of freedom, health, and the ability to enjoy a sport that will reward them for the rest of their life. Adam B. Ford is a Snowboard Level II Certified Instructor who began his career at Sandia Peak Ski Area in New Mexico and currently teaches at Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, Vermont. Ford is available for inquiries, interviews, or signings in New England and can be contacted via email at adam@hbarpress.com. 'Molly Rides' is available on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com or through Ingram Content Group. Title: 'Molly Rides' ISBN: 978-0-9893092-2-6 Format: Hardcover - 6.14' x 9.21' - 38 pages Genre: Children's Picture Book Publisher: H Bar Press Released: February 24, 2014 Distributor: Ingram Content Group, available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble Summary: Molly is a skier who spends her days skiing everything that the mountain can throw at her with love and joy. One day, her ski breaks and while she's waiting for a repair, she decides to learn to snowboard. At first it is difficult, but with time and determination, she masters her new skill. She now spends her days on a snowboard, once again riding anything On the Mountain. In the end she realizes that although she loves her new sport, she still loves skiing too and is happy to be out on the snow with either skis or a snowboard under her feet. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Langston Hughes' BLACK NATIVITY Lights Up Brunswick Christmas
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Dec 9, 2013

In 1961 at the 41st Street Theatre in New York City, African-American poet-playwright Langston Hughes premiered a work called Black Nativity, a collection of gospel songs punctuated by Hughes's own verse narrating the birth of Jesus. After a very short run, the only souvenir of that historic event was a rare LP recording. More than a half century later, Maine musicologist Aaron Robinson has collaborated with Bowdoin College conductor and choral director Anthony Antolini to mount a revised version of Hughes' original work. Entitled Black Nativity In Concert - A Gospel Celebration, Robinson has utilized Hughes' original texts, adding a few plus some Biblical verse, as well. For the musical settings he relied on transcribing the recording and arranging several songs himself. Performed yesterday by the seventy-five person Bowdoin Chorus, conducted by Antolini, with Roy Partridge as narrator, Jennifer McIvor on piano, and Sean Fleming on the Hammond organ, the concert in Studzkinski Recital Hall drew an overflowing crowd, many of whom were relegated to watching on lobby monitors.

BWW Blog: Mark Price of Off-Broadway's A CHRISTMAS CAROL - Truth, Ghosts, and Squishy Brains
by Guest Blogger: Mark Price - Dec 13, 2013

One of the first theater influences for me as a kid wasn't a play or musical, but a touring company of Alvin Ailey Company that came through Jones Hall in Houston Texas. By the end of the solo piece "Cry," I was in tears, baffled by how I'd just watched a three act play with no words being spoken. The shifts from love and defiance were dizzying at times, but never melodramatic. And the storytelling was rooted in such truth that carried a legacy of history of those who had danced the piece before her. Flash forward to my first trip to New York in Junior Year of High School where I took a very expensive nap during one of my first Broadway shows until a helicopter onstage woke me up. It was no fault of the actors for not holding the interest of an over-stimulated teenager, but in hindsight, I could see how technology and budget robbed the intimacy of the story being told.
