Katie Goodman To Hold Women's Improv Retreat at Chico 1/21-22
by BWW News Desk - Jan 9, 2017

Join 'Broad Comedy' & 'Spontaneous Combustibles' actress and teacher, Katie Goodman for this women's weekend retreat at Chico Hotsprings, January 21 - 22. The workshop will use improv, in Goodman's words, "to enable participants to learn self-trust, release themselves from judgment, take-risks and accept challenges, practice being present, and be flexible and open to change. The comedy improv exercises teach us to surrender to the moment, ridicule perfectionism, stay in beginner's mind, listen to our intuition, move with the flow and give up the goal." The retreat promises that all of what will be experienced in this workshop can be easily applied to our daily lives.  (more...)

BWW Review: Life and WHAT WE WANTED at the Clurman Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jan 7, 2017

Written by David Harms and directed by Drew Foster (in association with Skyhook Productions LLC) for its current run at the Clurman Theatre (NY's Theatre Row), What We Wanted is truly one of the most intriguing plays I have ever seen performed. After a few moments' adjustment in understanding exactly what is happening, followed by a brief evaluation of whether the family scene before us is acceptable or slightly unsettling, the characters simply become people whose lives are unraveled before the audience to reveal bare, confused human beings affected by the absurdity of life, just as everyone is.

Like many of his friends, Walt Goodridge fears the American media won't be fair or balanced when recognizing and documenting the historical significance and long-term impact of Barack Obama's two-terms as president. Goodridge, however, did something about it, and has crowdfunded and published a unique 'photo documentary' entitled The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency. 'After eight years, much of what people now feel about the Obama presidency isn't the result of an objective assessment of his accomplishments,' explains Goodridge, founder of the Obama Legacy We-Write Book Project. 'It's media spin in a country that, historically, has fallen short when it comes to humanizing men and women of color and glorifying their achievements. Internationally, Obama is recognized as one of the great statesmen-with poise, grace, and intelligence unmatched in modern American politics. Domestically, he's had major successes that have been overlooked or under-reported for various reasons. As his term ends, we can't allow pundits, politicians or Hollywood producers to determine how we and our children remember this particular presidency. We need to take pre-emptive action to reclaim and control the dialogue.' To those who claim disappointment with Obama's presidency, Goodridge, in the book's introduction, reminds them that despite previous presidents all having the power to do soand despite conspired obstruction that began on the night of his electionObama passed the first health care reform in the nation's history, advocated gay marriage rights, made equal pay for women the law, appointed multiple female supreme court justices, welcomed gays to the military and improved US-Cuba and US-Japan relations. He oversaw the demise of Osama Bin Laden, Iraq troop withdrawal and voted against the Keystone Pipeline, and quite notably, commuted 1,324 harsh sentencesmore than the previous 11 presidents combined. Goodridge offers these achievements as examples of what he calls 'real progress'-legislation and actions that counter the existing effects of this nation's foundation of white supremacy, institutionalized racism, fanatic nationalism, male sexism, religious extremism and corporate capitalism, thateven in light of the negatives (drone strikes, deportations, corporate wrist slaps) endure as hallmarks of one of the nation's greatest presidencies. Goodridge hopes the book will appeal to younger readers as well and includes 'legacy rhymes' of key milestones. Accompanying the iconic photo of Obama's first official act, he writes 'The first act that Obama signed / Was January 29, 2009 / And now in Lilly's name we say / With equal work comes equal pay.' 'Imagine your child knowing not only when 'Columbus sailed the ocean blue,' but also when the nation's first African American president signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act!' he opines. According to Goodridge, 'We've been witness to a great President whose legacy will ultimately be recognized as unmatched in US history, but you can't tune in to the six o'clock news to hear those words. We have to say them Ourselves and to our children. The proof is in the public record. Don't wait for the media re-write, make this a history WE write!' The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency is a full color, 150-page, 365-photo record of Obama's bill signings, town halls, tv appearances, news conferences, state of the union addresses, presidential firsts, groundbreaking nominations, baby whispering, and international trips and rockstar reception abroad in bold, photographs and behind the scenes commentary starting with 2007's 'Obamania' phenomenon.
