BWW Review: Off-Broadway's Hit HAM Brings Mega-Talented SAM HARRIS to LGBT Hollywood for Three WeeksBWW Review: Off-Broadway's Hit HAM Brings Mega-Talented SAM HARRIS to LGBT Hollywood for Three Weeks
by Don Grigware - Jan 29, 2016

In his early days circa 1984, when he won 13 consecutive weeks on TV's Star Search, Sam Harris was flatly denied work on TV and in film because he was labeled 'too theatrical'. This quality - and I say quality - is what makes a performer exceptional; it sets him apart from the crowd, separating the men from the boys, so to speak. But casting people and agents frankly did not know what to do with him; his enormous talent defied categorization. He can sing, he can dance, he can act the bejesus out of a piece, injecting so much raw energy and passion into it that its substance literally leaps off the stage, directly into our hearts. Well, times did change. He has worked on television and on Broadway to great acclaim, and now he is back onstage once more with his autobiographical show HAM: A Musical Memoir for a limited run at the Renberg Theatre of LGBT, Hollywood through February 7 only.

by BWW News Desk - Jan 21, 2016

Examining 19 Caribbean novels from the 1950s to the 1980s, 'The Relationship Between Individual and Family in the Caribbean Novel' (published by Partridge India) studies the relationship between individual and family and the struggle of identity through a Caribbean context. It focuses family as a 'natio,' 'global family,' a Caribbean society as 'the microcosm of the world.' It demonstrates how it is easy, as well as necessary, to create family to maintain the meaningful relatedness among human beings on a global level. 'Global village' is not just a slogan in the book, but is a possibility. (more...)

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/20/16- THE WIZARD OF OZSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/20/16- THE WIZARD OF OZ
by Stage Tube - Jan 20, 2016

Today in 1903, The Wizard of Oz opened at the Majestic Theatre, where it ran for 293 performances. Based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, which was originally published in 1900, much of the original music was by Paul Tietjens and has been mostly forgotten, although it was still well-remembered and in discussion at MGM in the late 1930s, when the classic film version of the story was made. The main plot of the show, as recounted in newspapers of the time, is Pastoria's attempts to regain the throne from the Wizard of Oz. The original protagonists' search for the Wizard puts them on the wrong side of the law. Since then, many new incarnations have been created, including the 1939 film, and the 2011 West End musical.
