Live Webcast from Therapy Pool Announces Athlete Performance Tips
by BWW News Desk - Mar 25, 2014

Running drills may not seem like the most glamorous activities to recreational and professional athletes; however, they have been proven to ratchet up the speed, endurance and overall performance capabilities of men and women. Yet from a purely mechanical perspective, land-based running drills can cause an athlete to be more susceptible to repetitive injuries such as stress fractures, muscle strains and sprains, and even (in rarer cases) broken bones. One solution to this problem for coaches and their charges is to promote running drills in a pool equipped with an underwater treadmill. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Molotov Theatre Group Horrifies with Macabre NORMAL at DCAC
by Elizabeth Bruce - Mar 10, 2014

For theatregoers leery of cheery froth on stage---perky, feel-good family shows like 'The Lion King' or 'Matilda'---Molotov Theatre Group's production of Anthony Neilson's NORMAL at DC Arts Center, should be just the antidote for such sentimentality. Dark and sinister, Director Jay D. Brock's NORMAL falls perfectly into Molotov's mission to preserve the Grand Guignol French Theatre of Horror (which translates as 'The Theater of the Big Puppet'), which operated in Paris from 1897 until 1962. For those unfamiliar with this particular institution, its bloody, naturalistic lineage draws from Shakespeare's gruesome 'Titus Andronicus' to the shockingly violent 'splatter films' like 'Blood Feast.' With a heydey between the two world wars, the theatre's form specialized in portraying the lumpenproletariat who were deemed unsuitable material for the legitimate stage: prostitutes, criminals, street urchins, and others deep in the margins of Parisian society.

BWW Reviews: Seeing Is Not Always Believing with CATCO's SHIPWRECKED!
by Lisa Norris - Feb 12, 2014

Donald Marguiles' well-crafted Off-Broadway play brings the real historical figure of Louis de Rougemonte to life on CATCO's Riffe Center stage. CATCO's Studio Two space transforms as it tells this whirlwind of a tale, so fantastically ridiculous, you can't help but think that it might just be true. Aided by a set that looks much like the deck of a Pirates of the Carribean movie sprawled out before your eyes in absolutely breathtaking detail (designed by the phenomenal Michael S. Brewer), and characters brought to life in Victorian era charm with costumes by Marcia Hain, Director Mark Seamon creates a re-telling that is like a bedtime story on steroids- full of over-the-top imagination as chapters unfold.

Comm-Works Makes a Splash for Special Olympics
by BWW News Desk - Apr 1, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - The 17th annual Polar Bear Plunge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics consisting of a series of 16 jumps into one of the many Minnesota lakes, marks the first time Comm-Works has participated in such an important event. Comm-Works participated in three different events, including events in Indianapolis and in Minnesota, for both the 5k and the Plunge. As a first time participating small corporation, Comm-Works was estimated to raise roughly $3,000. However, Comm-Works far exceeded that estimate and raised a total of $13,097. Bypassing the average of $6,182.84 for the 25 participating small corporations in Minnesota is a great accomplishment for Comm-Works; the monetary value is only a small aspect of the overall mission of Comm-Works and their involvement with the Special Olympics.  (more...)
