Based on the film Passione d'Amore directed by Ettore Scola

Based on the novel Fosca by I. U. Tarchetti

PASSION, winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Music and Lyrics, Best Book, and Best Musical, features music and lyrics by the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Company, Follies, Into The Woods, Gypsy) and book by James Lapine (Falsettos, Into The Woods, Sunday In The Park With George).


PASSION opened on Broadway in 1994, and received its London revival in 2010 at the Donmar Warehouse as part of Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday celebrations.

Stephen Sondheim's PASSION revolves around a handsome Italian solider, Giorgio, separated from his beautiful mistress, who is shattered and ultimately changed by the unconditional and obsessive love of Fosca, his Colonel's chronically ill and plain cousin. Her unrelenting passions force him to re-evaluate his beliefs about love and attraction between two human beings.

Serendipity Literary Agency and She Writes Press Announce Their First Memoir Discovery Competition
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

In an effort to promote and publish more women's voices, the agency and publisher have teamed up to offer one Grand Prize Winner a publishing contract with She Writes Press. She Writes Press and Serendipity Literary Agency announced recently that they have joined forces to offer one author a partnership publishing contract for their memoir. The Memoir Discovery Competition's Grand Prize winner will receive a publishing deal with She Writes Press and a She Writes Press Publishing Package, valued at $3900, which includes such services as: custom interior design for up to 120,000 words; custom cover design; print-on-demand setup with Lightning Source (LSI); e-book file preparation and upload to Amazon, B&N, and iBookstore; distribution to the trade via Ingram Publisher Services; a professional proofread of the final, laid-out manuscript; copyright filing; warehousing of short-run printed books; preordering and fulfillment of all orders; telephone and e-mail support from a She Writes Press project manager; and more. It was Serendipity Literary Agency CEO and author (You Should Really Write a Book: How to Writer Sell and Market Your Memoir) Regina Brooks who, inspired by She Writes Press's mission to support the efforts of women writers, first came up with the idea for the contest: 'As an agent, writers often send me wonderful memoirs that have great potential but don't feel right for the Big Five publishers,' Brooks said. 'I reached out to She Writes Press because I was interested in partnering around our shared Passion for promoting and publishing women's voices, and in giving one standout author a remarkable publishing experience.' In addition to the publishing package, the contest's Grand Prize winner-along with her fellow top five entrants-will receive a fifteen-minute, one-on-one consultation session with Brooks. All entrants will also receive a short written assessment of their submission, with suggestions for what their next editorial steps might be if they wish to pursue publication. She Writes Press publisher Brooke Warner said she and press co-founder Kamy Wicoff are especially happy with this extra offering for all participating authors. 'Our hope is that this contest will rally writers,' Warner said. 'We designed it specifically so that all entrants get constructive feedback, and we feel great about being able to give everyone who submits a chance to come away with ideas for how they can improve their work.' The Grand Prize winner will be selected based on the merit of her entry, which must consist of either a query letter and at least two full chapters of the work, or a query letter and a full-length nonfiction book proposal. The contest is open to trans women, genderqueer writers, and non-binary-identifying writers, but specifically not to male-identified writers. The deadline for entry is August 31, 2014. 'She Writes Press is always on the lookout for opportunities to engage our community and promote women's voices, and this contest is a perfect opportunity to do just that,' Warner said. 'We're thrilled to be partnering with Serendipity Literary on this, and we can't wait to see all the great submissions that are sure to come!' Don't miss the last few days to submit your work!

Florian Westermann Presents MAGIC PLACES Photography Exhibit, 9/10
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

His Passion is to discover and capture the breathtaking spectacle of landscape and light, wherever on earth he may find it. Being in the middle of nature, which has changed little in thousands of years and where one wishes that time would stop while looking at the scenery in awe, is for him an unbelievable wealth that he wants to share. It is to these magical places that Florian Westermann wants to lead the viewer emotionally and communicate their beauty, grandeur and drama. He wants to show that the unbelievable is reality and is really there. Florian Westermann (b. 1980), grew up in West Berlin and witnessed firsthand the fall of the wall. Reunification and the city as a rapidly changing melting pot influenced his childhood and youth. Already in this context, he developed a very strong interest in photography. The city offered him an inexhaustible wealth of inspiration and motives. However, he soon discovered his special predilection for nature photos. After leaving school, he started his career as a business journalist in 1999. On numerous journeys, he also had the opportunity to devote himself to landscape photography and to discover new, fascinating places over and over again. Over many years, he managed to teach himself the knowledge that he needed as a photographer. Passion was just as key to his success as his willingness to spare neither expense nor effort in search of the best moments of nature. He realized almost nothing brings people together in the way photography does. For Florian Westermann, it is a universal form of expression that appeals to people very directly in a rational and an emotional way. With the exhibition 'Magical Places' at 'art place berlin', he exhibits works of recent years to a wider audience in Berlin for the first time. Forty-five high-quality large-formats show impressive motifs from the cities of New York and San Francisco, the vastness of the American Southwest, the paradise islands of the Seychelles, and motifs from Europe such as the German and Swiss Alps or the Mediterranean island of Sicily. 'Photography is a fire that burns inside my heart and will not let me go. In pristine nature, I find something that is larger and more important than ourselves' - Florian Westermann. Since 2014, he lives and works in Munich. 'art place berlin' is the forum for contemporary art and intercultural projects at the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin-Alexanderplatz. It offers the opportunity to encounter current international art to over 30,000 monthly guests and visitors. The changing exhibitions show artistic positions in painting, photography, and works on paper. The exhibitions can be visited daily from 9 am - 9 pm with free admission on the ground floor and the 1st floor. Today, 'art place berlin' looks back on 5 years of successful collaboration with artists, curators, and institutions. From the beginning, it could be trusted in the rich experience of organizing more than 100 high-profile exhibitions, which were shown in the former Art Center Berlin Friedrichstrasse from 2005 to 2010. art place berlin - forum for contemporary art in the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz since 2009 Alexanderplatz 7 / Park Inn, 10178 Berlin, Germany (more...)
