Don't Miss Paul Shaffer and the World's Most Dangerous Band at The Ridgefield Playhouse on 5/6
by BWW News Desk - Mar 3, 2017

The Ridgefield Playhouse and Pepsi Rock Series Powered by xfinity are going to rock your world with musical legend Paul Shaffer and the Most Dangerous Band on Saturday, May 6 at 8 p.m.  Paul Shaffer may be best known as David Letterman's musical director and sidekick for the past 33 years, but his illustrious career goes far beyond the Ed Sullivan Theater.  Paul began his career working with Stephen Schwartz in 1972 as musical director for the Toronto production of "Godspell." From there he went on to spend 5 years with the original cast of "SaturdayNight Live" where he was the band leader and performer - most notably for his parody of Don Kirschner.  Shaffer occasionally teamed up with the "Not Ready for Prime-Time Players" off the show as well, including work on Gilda Radner's highly successful Broadway show and as the musical director for John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd whenever they recorded or performed as The Blues Brothers. In 1984, Shaffer played keyboards for The Honeydrippers, a group formed in 1981 by former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, and performed on the hit single "Sea of Love" which reached #1.  (more...)

Suse Wilcox Releases 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits, and Heroes'
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2017

Everyday Heroes and Random Kindnesses Sarah and Jamie have adventure-filled, fun plans for their summer; but when Sarah's newspaper delivery job leads her to encounter those from different socioeconomic classes, she comes to realize that 'weird' people and those who don't fit into her family's world have their own real lives, concerns, and personas, and she begins to learn about the hidden 'heroes' in everyday life. Both kids become more aware of the different choices involved in interacting with others, discovering that heroes needn't be dramatic and quiet acts of kindness can easily become simple ways of reacting to life. When was the last time your 'tween' empathized with a stranger's plight? The middle school years are a Prime Time when pre-teens begin to form values and perceptions about life, learning how to perceive and interpret the feelings and actions of others; but parents and children are seldom given concrete tools to discuss bullying, friendships, and larger social issues. 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits and Heroes' presents a rare set of insights that parents and tweens can use as openers to meaningful, thought-provoking dialogue. Too many middle school novels focus on shallow interactions and action stories. 'Bullies, Coasters, Hermits and Heroes' adds depth by asking some hard questions about different kinds of people and the choices they make with what life presents them: 'Some appeared to have no desire to change their situation. They didn't even take care of what they had. Their trailers were dirty and messy. How could they fulfill their purpose if they didn't strive for something else? Did something happen to break their spirit, or were they born as coasters?' About the Author Suse Wilcox lives in Michigan with her husband and two sons. She has and MBA from the University of Michigan and worked in the field of finance before pursuing her passion to write. She hopes to motivate children and young adults to read books that are entertaining but also have thought-provoking messages regarding life, personal choices, and faith. Bullies, Coasters, Hermits, and Heroes 116 Pages Softcover, $5.99; ISBN: 978-1508896548 E-book, $2.99 Published by: Joie Press LLC Available on Amazon Accolades and Awards 'Suse's book is directed to the reading audience from grades 4 - 7, though stories merit the attention of the adults close to these readers also...Sophisticated language yet entirely accessible to young readers...It is particularly rewarding to encounter a writer of young people's literature who is so adept at expression and incorporates sound living lessons into personal growth.'
