Dr. Barbara Sinor Releases New Novel, FINDING DESTINY
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2016

Inspirational Self-Help Author Dr. Barbara Sinor Publishes Debut Novel Dr. Barbara Sinor, renowned author of six inspirational, self-help books, has stepped into the world of fiction with her debut novel Finding Destiny (Loving Healing Press, 2016). Now retired from counseling and gifting the public with her six non-fiction spiritually inspired self-help books, Sinor digs into writing a poetic tale of fiction that brings her readers nuances of metaphysical instruction and a splash of women's reproductive rights support. Finding Destiny is primarily a women's novel, but there will be many men interested in this book of romance and mystery as two women unravel the challenges on their paths. The story develops with Luana, a retired psychotherapist living in southern California, who discovers a novel about a teenager living in England during the 1970s, who has been raped. As Luana devours the book, she and the young woman each share their search for the innermost harbor of women's life choices. The Seventeen year old British teen is searching for love. She discovers that her choices on her life journey direct her to explore the laws of metaphysics, trusting the right path will appear before her. Luana brings her knowledge of spirituality to embrace the struggles of the young women's life, and then realizes her own life path has crossed similar challenges. Even though these two women live in separate countries and bridge many decades in time, their individual exploration of metaphysics, spirituality, and women's rights culminates in a mysterious friendship. Finding Destiny contains two main themes. The storyline subtly conveys the issues surrounding pregnancy and women's reproductive rights. The book also addresses and references the many ways we can learn about manifesting our lives, or to quote a well known phase, how to co-create our reality. Sinor uses profound poetic prose in the book to lead her readers into captivating visuals, which propels each character though their ever-changing lives. After completing the first few pages of this exceptional novel, readers will react viscerally and strain forward to discover each character's journey. Praise for Finding Destiny 'Finding Destiny nudges us gently to continue our journey of finding our own personal destiny.' -Barbara Patterson, Soul Matters Radio, Germany 'Finding Destiny is an engaging book, exploring connections of people separated by time and space. As a woman who has experienced unplanned pregnancy, I was especially appreciative of the exploration of this theme.' -Juanita Emery, M.A., Health Practitioner 'Finding Destiny is the story of two women whose challenges and triumphs mirror each other in many ways. It is also about transformation and how to achieve it. Through this fictional story, Sinor offers an introduction to metaphysical principles that become the foundation for both women's strength and power.' -Reverend Margaret Flick, Unity Minister 'Finding Destiny goes beneath the skin; down to the internal turmoil and sacrifices of two women a half century and oceans apart as they, with their best conscience, make life changing and altering decisions.' -Mary Catherine O'Heart, RN Book Info: Title: Finding Destiny Author: Dr. Barbara Sinor Publisher: Marvelous Spirit Press Publication Date: September 2016 Genre: Visionary Fiction Pages: 250 ISBN: #978-1-61599-299-7 [Paperback] #978-1-61599-301-7 [eBook] Contact: Victor Volkman, Publisher: 888-761-6268 or Ingram Book Distributors (more...)

BWW Blog: Jennifer Weber - I Can Do That: A CHORUS LINE Review
by Guest Blogger: Jennifer Weber - Jul 27, 2016

5,6,7,8… Everyone start stretching and get out your headshots, A Chorus Line is a part of the summer season at the Hemmens and it couldn't be more exciting! While the audience begins to find their seats and chatter still fills the room, the show begins with the cast arriving to the audition. Some are stretching, chatting with friends, and of course taking selfies. In other musicals I would think, what is happening? But with A Chorus Line this production is all about the audition process and the little things matter. The design team had an easy time with this one compared to last summer's Rent production. The stage is set like it would appear any time of day with lights in the wings, chairs scattered off to the side, and four individual mirrors that three appear to be transparent (and make for some interesting dance numbers).

BWW Review: OC's Segerstrom Center Welcomes Delightful New THE SOUND OF MUSIC Tour
by Michael L. Quintos - Jul 27, 2016

A surprisingly well-done, beautifully-paced production that feels like a truly fresh revival of something many of us have forever seared in our brains, this brand new, Jack O'Brien-helmed national tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC---now on stage at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through July 31---is a resplendent enterprise that is equal parts heartwarming nostalgia and entertaining, feel-good theater. Say what you will about how hokey and old-fashioned this show may be now... but I, for one, truly adored it. Besides its lovely visuals, this new revival has made a wonderful discovery in Kerstin Anderson, who plays a spunky, utterly charming version of everyone's favorite nun-turned-nanny Maria. (more...)

But anticipation aside, it is the delivery here that is the story: a stunningly executed, intelligently staged, deliciously performed rendition of the 2001 long running ABBA musical that transformed the intimate Pickard Theater into a boisterous celebration.
