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.

BWW Recap: It's a Nice Day for a Plaid Wedding on This Week's OUTLANDER
by Kara McCoy - Sep 20, 2014

This week's episode of OUTLANDER was a pretty special one, so mazel tov, newlyweds; this recap's for you. We get an opening shot of Claire and Frank walking hand and hand, all lovey dovey, down the street—a flashback to their own wedding day, which was a very simple, and totally spontaneous, affair. They share a kiss and then—oops, snap back to reality—we're in Scotland again, and it's Jamie and Claire doing the kissing. Because they're married. It happened. If you sneezed, you probably missed the entire ceremony, it's that short. But don't you worry, fellow romantics—the bulk of the episode is devoted to backtracking, so you get a closer look at the actual wedding eventually, piece by piece. First, however, we get a snapshot of the tension-ridden awkwardfest that is the wedding night. Claire and Jamie are left alone in the honeymoon suite while the party guests grow ever rowdier, and no doubt drunker, just outside their door, refusing to go to bed until the marriage has been made, er, shall we say, official.

ALASKA BE DAMNED! by Robert Hatting is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 19, 2014

HerEthics Books Independent eBook Publisher wish to thank all participating individuals - designers, editors, beta readers, reviewers, promoters - for their successful launch of the new bestseller. About the Book Skilled fisherman on the daring shores of Alaska hears the call 'MAYDAY' and takes it as his mission to help. Without jumping to the conclusion and playing 'hero' he practically considers the situation and acts as reasonably as possible. With the backup of his son on the other boat and under the threat of worsening weather conditions places the needs of others before his own and proceeds. Two survivors; an old man and a young woman in such a distress cannot believe that a 'miracle' happened and a real, alive 'human being' reached them. The emotions of happiness are high and comparable to those of previous despair. Ben reads the situation and adjusts the steps of his 'rescue mission' to the actual conditions. Life tests only those who are ready, so on the way out from the first crisis, Ben finds himself involved in the second rescue mission. Natural forces didn't lower their high stakes as he didn't bend under the accusation of manslaughter. A customer from Amazon: 'An engrossing novel, with intimate details of Alaska, the fishing industry, the sea, world travels, corrupt politicians and law enforcement, loyalty, Passion & love. Author's background includes extensive travels worldwide, and his knowledge of so many landscapes is showed expertly here. The vast knowledge of the sea, boats and fishing industry were woven into a blockbuster storyline.' About the Author Robert Hatting is an American author of western, action and adventure stories. His 13 books and 6 screenplays are widely read across Americas, but reaching out to Europe and Asia. 'He was living the adventures much like Hemingway or Indiana Jones and with a big grin on his face loving every minute,' said one of his friends from school time. The greed, power and manipulation on one side collide with a pure friendship, honesty and love on a magnificent background of virgin Alaskan landscapes and ingenuous attempt to deal with politics without lateral intentions and personal agendas. 'Alaska be Damned!' (367 pages) is available as Kindle Edition on Amazon. (more...)
