Silas Marshall Announces THE CHRISTIAN HANDBOOK OF SURVIVAL
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2016

'The Christian Handbook of Survival': a moving and inspirational guide to living the principles of the Bible. 'The Christian Handbook of Survival' is the creation of published author, Silas Marshall, who was called out of darkness into God's marvelous light over forty years ago. His call begins while he was in the music industry as a singer, songwriter, and producer of his own original works. All Silas wanted was to be a success within the music industry, but God had other plans for him. After his first five-year contract was coming to an end, he was offered another seven-year contract with the stipulation that Silas must forget 'quote' that Jesus stuff, which threw him for a loop because he did not consider himself at that time to be religious at all. He wanted what most aspiring singer/songwriters wanted - success in the business, and that's all he had on his mind. But when he heard these words come out of the attorney's mouth, he was shocked, which made something rise up in him that he had never really thought about before. That was; if these Rich and Famous men hate Jesus so much, then he must look into who Jesus really was. He rejected their pretty good offer and did not sign the new contract. This action sent Silas on a forty-year journey to find out the truth that sets men and women free, and that truth was in Jesus the Christ. (more...)

BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Jan 23, 2017

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to. The side effect of Death's occupation being, though, that he can't collect anyone else while he's so distracted - Death the person and death the concept take a break!  Maury was kind enough to discuss his musical background, some of his better-known works and his latest venture for the stage.
