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...)
