New Legal Thriller THE GUN TRIAL by Dale E. Manolakas is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2016

Guns fire and lives shatter. In this page-turning legal thriller, media wars and violence drive a legally pivotal trial against gun sellers. Only the small Los Angeles firm of Kraus & White will take on the cutting-edge case against the national gun establishment and corporate oligarchs. Amidst the firm's internal Strife, lead trial lawyer Sophia Christopoulos and her team fight the well-financed, corrupt opposition in hostile Bakersfield, California. Social tensions fuel the already volatile mix compounded by demonstrations, deaths, scandal, and the ratings-hungry media. Fighting for her life and her firm's survival, Sophia pushes the case to a climactic trial-confronting the ubiquity and difficulty of gun violence and guns themselves in America. (First in Series-'Lethal Lawyers'-Top 100 Amazon Legal Thriller for a Year) buy on Amazon Worldwide.

BWW Review: Off-Putting Narrative in a Pretty Box with Book-It's A TALE FOR THE TIME BEING
by Amelia Reynolds - Sep 26, 2016

Dear Readers, Can you imagine reading your diary from when you were 16-years-old out loud, in front of an audience? Now, can you imagine doing it not for laughs, but to recreate those precious, documented moments with emotional integrity? Superimposing emotion over words such as 'My mom just does not understand me,' in a way that feels both authentic and serious is close to impossible, even when the content of the writing is much graver. This was Book-It's noble challenge in its latest production of 'A Tale for the Time Being' as 16-year-old Nao recites the words of her found diary. (more...)

BWW Review: Consummate Entertainer Sidney Myer Delights in His Return to the Laurie Beechman Theatre
by Alix Cohen - Oct 20, 2016

Twelve years after his last full show and a full 36 since he performed at the venerable Laurie Beechman Theatre, entertainer (and Don't Tell Mama booker) Sidney Myer commanded the stage as if he'd been there yesterday. I attended the second of three sold-out presentations marked as fundraisers for The Mabel Mercer Foundation, likely the only organization for which Sidney would take on such a project. The concerts are a 'thank you' to the art's standard bearer and its creator Donald Smith, who gave Sidney wide exposure and exceptional latitude at every Cabaret Convention from the third on, a tradition maintained today.

Christian Author Releases LEFT CROSS RIGHT CROSS
by BWW News Desk - Oct 11, 2016

Monroe, Michigan Author's Novel Released Author G. Chip Greene's newly released 'Left Cross Right Cross' is an amazing work of fiction detailing the story of Jesus' youth, culminating at the foot of the cross. 'Left Cross Right Cross' from Christian Faith Publishing author G. Chip Greene is a beautifully written and descriptive tale of Jesus' childhood and his best friends who go separate ways, only to meet again on a hill called Calvary. 'Left Cross Right Cross': an engaging and inventive work of fiction that relays a story of friendship, separation, and ultimately divine providence at work on a day of untold sadness, compromise, and determination. 'Left Cross Right Cross' is the creation of published author, G. Chip Greene, retired high school teacher and devoted father, husband, and grandfather. A lifelong and tireless reader, this is Chip's first novel. However, he shares that, 'I am currently working on two other writing projects. One being a spin-off of a character from Left Cross, Right Cross, and (the other) an interesting work on Scripture from the viewpoint of the archangels.' Published by Christian Faith Publishing, G. Chip Greene's new book explores the early, teen, and adult life of Jesus Christ as he grows up with childhood friends, Cris and Daani. The author seamlessly weaves these lives and families inexplicably together for eternity. The three boys form an inseparable bond and kinship born of the ages. Ultimately, they separate as teens as the plan of heaven begins to unfold. While Jesus retreats to the wilderness and defines his Godly heritage and ultimate mission, his friends stray from their traditions and teachings and find heartache, trouble, and Strife in the dark Philistine city of Ashod. The providence of YHWH reunites the trio at the foot of Calvary's cross for an unforgettable day of human anguish and decision. Consumers can purchase 'Left Cross Right Cross' at traditional brick & mortar bookstores, or online at Amazon.com, Apple iTunes store, Kobo or Barnes and Noble. For additional information or inquiries about 'Left Cross Right Cross,' contact the Christian Faith Publishing media department. (more...)

BWW Review: Carmen Cusack Shares Her Remarkable Story with Feinstein's/54 Below, Showcasing the Unmatched Versatility Which Brought Her to Broadway
by Casey Mink - Aug 12, 2016

'At last, at last, at long last.' These are the lyrics which ushered in the emotional climax of Broadway's Bright Star, the North Carolina-set musical which burned fast and, well, bright this past season on Broadway. So, too, did these lyrics close out the solo concert debut of the musical's incandescent star, Carmen Cusack, at Feinstein's/54 Below on August 9. Fittingly so. This time last year, Cusack was little known in New York, having established herself as a bona fide star in the West End, as well as regionally in touring productions of Wicked and South Pacific. Cut to the summer of 2016, though, and Cusack has made one of the most celebrated Broadway debuts in memory and was Tony-nominated in this year's Actress in a Leading Role category (the same one deemed too full for Audra McDonald). It is no wonder, then, Cusack wasted no time capitalizing on her newfound cachet, booking three concerts at Broadway's supper club, before swiftly adding a fourth due to demand. (more...)
