New Step UP Bike Combines a Stair Stepper and Bike for Superior Workout Experience
by BWW News Desk - Jan 19, 2017

Franklin, Mi: The Step UP Bike was invented by a mechanical engineer employed at one of the auto manufacturing companies located in Detroit Michigan. The idea was born out of need for exercise that could match that of running without the impact. Many people who enjoy running, experience pain and inflammation in their joints caused from the consistent 'high impact' of running. Many exercise enthusiasts and marathon runners are looking for stimulating exercise that treadmills and ellipticals don't deliver. That's how the Step Up was born. By combining the stepping function of a stair master and putting the rail system on a bicycle, the desired non-impact stimulating workout is achieved. (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Body Positivity in Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Jan 13, 2017

It's everywhere. Body Positive ads and videos work its way into the media on practically a daily basis. Stores are expanding the sizes they carry, girls are encouraged to embrace their curves, but all the same a photoshopped fantasy takes over our minds thinking what the ideal image is. I decided to take a look at how this affects the theatre world that I am so blessed to be a part of. I surveyed one hundred random, anonymous participants. The survey was distributed to several different theatre pages on social media where participants have a wide range of experiences and opinions. I also had the pleasure to interview Michael Kennedy (a student at the University of New Haven), Stephen Sheperd (a recent alumnus of the University of New Haven), and Diana Dart Harris (a professor at the University of New Haven whom has degrees in both dance education and exercise science).

BWW Review: It's Gonna Be Gone TOMORROW! ANNIE Brings Much Appreciated Optimism in Brief Stop at The McCallum
by David Green - Jan 11, 2017

Some people roll their eyes when you mention the musical ANNIE. But, I tell you what. ANNIE never disappoints. It is not Sondheim. It is not Hamilton. It is not Pasek and Paul. But -the book is strong - the laughs are genuine and Plenty. The lyrics are clever and the melodies as singable as they come. This production of ANNIE is far from perfect - but it is still a pretty perfect little musical! It is a "leave your troubles at the door" evening in the theatre and an optimistic antidote to any depression you might be feeling in this rather volatile political climate. There are just two performances remaining in the Coachella Valley, but it would be worth your time to drop whatever you're doing and snatch up the limited remaining tickets.  (more...)
