by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Sep 17, 2014

Acclaimed American playwright Christopher Durang is well known for his absurd and often outrageous humor, and his VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE, winner of a Tony Award in 2013 for Best Play, is no exception. An engaging farce with a somewhat surprising degree of sentiment at its core, this darkish comedy sends up the classic work of Anton Chekhov while also countering it with a kind of cock-eyed optimism. This Trustus Theatre's production, in the capable hands of director Jim O'Connor and well-modulated cast, just completed its first week's run and happily will be playing for another two weeks. There are Plenty of in-jokes for theatre majors and the cognoscenti, but the uninitiated can also enjoy the modern comedy and unexpected charm that infuses Durang's take on a very idiosyncratic family whose caricatured members are yet familiar to us.

BWW Reviews: Paramount's CATS Offers High-Quality Entertainment
by Elee Schrock - Sep 16, 2014

BroadwayWorld reviews Paramount Theatre's 'Cats.' The felines prowling the stage at Aurora's Paramount Theatre have truly been given the five-star treatment. On a perfectly polished (and monstrous) set by Kevin Depinet (along with projections by Michael Stanfill), they are given Plenty of room to jump, climb, and play. They are donned in those iconic (expertly designed by Theresa Ham, with wigs and make-up by Katie Cordts and Lauren Cecil) leotards and furry hats. And, most impressive, they have been lit in brilliant colors by lighting extraordinaire, Jesse Klug. The aesthetic appeal on the Paramount stage is top-notch and one of the main reasons this production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' is as fully satisfying as this musical gets. (more...)

Fusion Bodybuilding Offers Purple.K Creatine
by BWW News Desk - Sep 11, 2014

Leading supplement company, Fusion Bodybuilding is known to offer Canada's number one selling creatine capsules called Purple K Creatine. These unique workout supplements take advantage of a patented ingredient that increases the effectiveness of creatine by increasing its bio-availability, stimulating energy production and combating acidosis. Compared to standard creatine products, Purple K Creatine provides an unparalleled level of strength to your workouts that is sure to be appreciated by any passionate bodybuilder. Standard creatine products possess a pH of between 0 and 6.9, causing them to be converted into creatinine when mixed with liquids or stomach acid, Purple K Creatine avoids this problem thanks to its unique ingredient Kre-Alkalyn. This patented ingredient is used to create the pH-corrected creatine molecule present in Purple K Creatine, allowing it to remain unchanged in liquids and stomach acid and subsequently increasing its bioavailability. With a pH of 12, 100% of the creatine present in Purple K Creatine is utilized by your muscles during bodybuilding. Additionally, this pH-corrected creatine prevents acidosis, a common cause of muscle failure during strenuous exercise. Production of both adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and phosphocreatine (PCr), two key energy molecules used by your muscles during exercise, is increased by Purple K Creatine. Whereas standard creatine products may still increase levels of these molecules, the breakdown of creatine into creatinine minimizes their effectiveness compared to Purple K Creatine. If you're serious about maximizing the efficiency of your bodybuilding routine, using Purple K Creatine is a great choice that provides Plenty of noticeable benefits. About Fusion Bodybuilding Based out of Ontario, Canada, Fusion Bodybuilding is a nutraceutical company that uses their passion and belief in bodybuilding to provide the most effective bodybuilding supplements that they possibly can since 1998. All of their products are designed specifically for bodybuilders and utilize sound science to ensure that each supplement is unique and effective. (more...)
