Military Pilot Releases Autobiographical Journey During the Vietnam War
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2014

The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies, known as the Viet Cong, against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. It was the longest war in American history and the most unpopular American war of the twentieth century. Even today, many still ask whether the American effort in Vietnam was a sin, a blunder, a necessary war, or a noble cause, or an idealistic, if failed, effort to protect the South Vietnamese from totalitarian government.

by BWW News Desk - Jan 31, 2014

With all the turmoil that has hit Mali since singing guitar master Habib Koite's last recording, it is no wonder that his February 25, 2014 release, titled Soo (which translates to Home in English), was recorded in his own home. But the civil Strife in Mali was not what drove the musician to do his first home recording. The real reason simply was-just like many other established musicians-because he could.

BWW Reviews: YENTL Disappoints at Cleveland Play House
by Roy Berko - Jan 16, 2014

The opening night audience for YENTL failed to give the standard Cleveland standing ovation. This might be construed as an omen that there was a disconnect between the viewers and the production.

I wanted so much to really be swept away by the production. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. (more...)

In the Face of the Ultimate Test, Would Your Faith Persevere?
by BWW News Desk - Jan 11, 2014

It is easy for people to be swept up in the superficial aspects of life and turn away from their faith. This folly does not come without consequences, and a person's devotion and commitment to God can be put to the test. The Wasps and the Locusts is a new work of Christian fiction that uses anthropomorphic characters to tell a story of faith, perseverance, and redemption in the face of spiritual judgment. The Wasps and the Locusts, a novel of Orwellian nature, was inspired by the Old Testament Book of Joel in which God sent a locust invasion to punish those who turned away from Him. This book will be available everywhere books are sold in December. (more...)
