BWW Review: Village Has Your DREAMGIRLS, Boys. And They'll Make You Happy!
by Jay Irwin - May 12, 2017

Back in the day when I was a mere fledgling musical theater geek I was introduced to the show 'Dreamgirls'. You might say this was my gateway cast album that put me on the path toward the musical addict I am today as I practically wore out the CD. So you'll understand if I'm a little picky about this show. I mean, how could someone live up to the magic of Jennifer Holliday, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Loretta Devine? Since then I've seen a few productions that have all been OK but never got me there until now. And true, you can't ever really compare with the originals but the current production from Village Theatre does a mighty fine job. (more...)

R.J. Julia Bookseller Hosts Dick Pirozzolo of 'Escape from Saigon' and More, 3/14
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

R.J. Julia Bookseller, the nation's most influential independent bookstore in Madison, Connecticut, will host an evening with popular historical fiction authors Dick Pirozzolo of 'Escape from Saigon - a Novel' with Vic Butsch and co-author Tommy Coletti of a 'A Journey to the Gallows,' and Beth M. Caruso of 'One of Windsor: The Untold Story of America's First Witch Hanging.' 7 PM, March 14. Free and Open to the Public. All books will be available for sale during the event. Please register for this free event here: http://bit.ly/2lXMjl8. R.J. Julia Booksellers 768 Boston Post Road Madison, CT 06443 'A Journey to the Gallows' Aaron Dwight Stevens ran away from his Norwich, Connecticut home two times. The first was when he was just a young man not yet 16 years old, but large and mature enough to go to Boston on his own. He convinced the 1st Massachusetts Regiment of Volunteers that he was old enough to fight in the war against Mexico. Dwight served with honor through the war narrowly avoiding capture and certain death. He returned home and mended the strained relations with his family, but after several years, he felt that he had to leave again. 'One of Windsor: The Untold Story of America's First Witch Hanging' Alice, a young woman prone to intuitive insights and loyalty to the only family she has ever known, leaves England for the rigid colony of the Massachusetts Bay in 1635 in hopes of reuniting with them again. Finally settling in Windsor, Connecticut, she encounters the rich American wilderness and its inhabitants, her own healing abilities, and the blinding fears of Puritan leaders which collide and set the stage for America's first witch hanging, her own, on May 26, 1647. This event and Alice's ties to her beloved family are catalysts that influence Connecticut's Governor John Winthrop Jr. to halt witchcraft hangings in much later years. 'Escape from Saigon' During the final 30 days of the Vietnam War in April of 1975, 'Escape from Saigon a Novel' (www.escapefromsaigon.com) follows the lives of those trapped in the besieged city during the fall of Saigon. Among them are Lisette Vo, NBS-TV's first Vietnamese-American war correspondent, and the hard-hitting reporter Sam Esposito of The Washington Legend who infuriated Richard Nixon; an American businessman risking his life to smuggle out his employees; a returning soldier looking for his Vietnamese family, and the remaining U.S. diplomats in Saigon including Ambassador Graham Martin, military liaisons, and CIA operatives.
