by Matt Tamanini - Sep 30, 2016

Last year, Orlando's Mad Cow Theatre opened a powerful production of Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play CLYBOURNE PARK, and while their version still holds up a year later, the environment in which we find Ourselves in 2016 adds an extra level of resonance to Theatre UCF's production, running through October 2nd. This top-notch production is both beautifully staged and designed, and the cast provides nuanced performances of a script that constantly reveals new layers to be analyzed.

BWW Blog: Emma Mueller - Imagine
by Guest Blogger: Emma Mueller - Sep 26, 2016

I was never one to sit still. I always tap a foot in the air while I'm sitting cross-legged.

I have done more sitting still in the last week than I have in my entire life, and it was nothing less than enlightening.  (more...)

BWW Interview: Ben Vereen of STEPPIN' OUT at The Grand 1894 Opera House
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Sep 23, 2016

There's not much one can say when you look at the resume of Ben Vereen. I have to admit I thought the email to interview Mr. Vereen was a hoax or a vile trick someone was playing on me. Now the reason I say this is because he is one of my idols and reasons I studied musical theatre in college and left to go to NYC to work professionally. We are familiar with his work with Bob Fosse as the Leading Player in PIPPIN and as Judas in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR but Mr. Vereen still continues to give us the ole razzle dazzle on the stage and on the screen. He's starred in 9 Broadway shows, has received the coveted Antionette Perry Award (The Tony), a Drama Desk Award, and a Prism Award. Nominated for an NAACP Image Award, starred in 30 plus movies and television shows, and has a huge crossover career. Ben Vereen hit the scene in Martha Graham's PRODIGAL SON in 1965 and he's been working ever since. I had the esteemed pleasure to sit and talk about his illustrious career and the current projects he's working on currently. (more...)

Astar Print Publishes AADEN BLUESTAR: THE AWAKENING
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2016

The release of a new paperback Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening presents a different slant on a popular theme. Instead of a boy wizard, the boy in this tale discovers he is extraterrestrial. Aaden Greene, the son of a U.S. Senator seems an ordinary boy until a freak accident awakens his superhuman telepathic powers and presents him with more challenges than the usual coming of age teen. Astounded by his superhero abilities he's also confused by the terrifying vision of metaphysics that appears before him at the timing of his spiritual awakening. As he struggles to come to terms with the responsibilities of these superhuman BlueStar powers, he also discovers that his father is more than an ordinary person and politician dedicated to environmental reform. Not only does Aaden have to adjust to his connections with two extraterrestrial champions, he is also astonished to learn that his father, Senator Adam Greene, is one of them. What amazes him most is the connection between his father, a Senator running for President and the charismatic E.T. with whom he has also had a telepathic connection throughout lifetimes. With the world in turmoil due to global conflicts and environmental catastrophe, the ecological issues take centre stage in this story. The extraterrestrial interest in Earth is more out of concern about the precarious position we've placed Ourselves through misuse of our environment. The story poses the question of whether we've already left it too late to remedy the environmental backlash, as evidenced by the increasing occurrence of natural disasters. Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening is aimed at younger readers, but will also appeal to a wider audience of all ages because of the environmental message and the suggestions it presents about how we may recover from the approaching precipice ... with or without extraterrestrial help. Published by New Zealand publisher Astar Print via CreateSpace, Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening is now available in paperback format via https://www.createspace.com/6550223 . The original e-book version is also available from amazon.com in kindle format on https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RIMSS6G (more...)
