BWW Review: Real Housewives of Sneden's Landing: RUMORSBWW Review: Real Housewives of Sneden's Landing: RUMORS
by Jeffrey Ellis - Apr 29, 2016

Neil Simon's Rumors - one of the most popular stage farces of the late 20th century - is given its due with the fourth production at Nashville's iconic and I daresay historic Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre. Directed with panache by stage veteran Lydia Bushfield (who, herself, has starred in one of the four productions of Rumors at Chaffin's Barn over the past quarter-century), Simon's broadly drawn characters are brought vividly to life by a cast of capable and very funny actors who know how to land a line, deliver a rejoinder and, when called upon, play the straight man to help a fellow actor out when it comes time for him to shine.

BWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - The Music of BACKBEARDBWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - The Music of BACKBEARD
by Guest Blogger: Samantha Tirrell - Apr 25, 2016

We've just finished our first week of music rehearsals for Backbeard at the Theatre Institute at Sage! Because Backbeard has been workshopped with our department a couple of times now, most of the cast is already very familiar with the music, so the trajectory of our music rehearsals was naturally a bit different than it would have been if we were rehearsing a licensed show. The familiarity that the cast has with the material already allows for the polishing of the music earlier in the rehearsal process than is standard, and this musical stability will assist with the fluidity of rehearsal once staging begins.  (more...)

BWW Review: Coyote Stageworks' AGNES OF GOD - An Emotional Powerhouse at the AnnenbergBWW Review: Coyote Stageworks' AGNES OF GOD - An Emotional Powerhouse at the Annenberg
by David Green - Apr 25, 2016

AGNES OF GOD is challenging theatre at every level. It demands a lot of its audience. It demands its audience be engaged and active at every turn. It is both emotionally and intellectually stimulating and provocative. It is ninety-plus minutes of thought provoking dialogue with minimal action. One must listen. It asks a lot of questions and delivers few answers. It requires three exceptional actors with the dexterity to bounce effortlessly and honestly between strength and pathos and vulnerability, over and over again - to bring believability and life to an arduous load of complex dialogue.  It requires the deft hand of a skilled director to delicately weave these three divergent character arcs into a seamless singular story arc, where the story's quieter moments are equally as riveting as the more chaotic ones. Fortunately for desert audiences, Coyote Stageworks delivers on all counts. This AGNES OF GOD is well crafted, expertly acted and is cerebrally, spiritually, psychologically and emotionally fulfilling.  (more...)

BalanceDiet Shares Tips on How to Lose Weight with WaterBalanceDiet Shares Tips on How to Lose Weight with Water
by BWW News Desk - Apr 20, 2016

The Magic Elixir The list of why water is beneficial is endless. Water boosts the metabolism, cleanses the body of toxins, helps with digestion, calms an appetite, improves mood, releases water weight and aids with weight loss. Arrington's tip: Appease a case of the munchies by drinking two glasses of water before a meal. Creating the Perfect Concoction Spas have been incorporating infused waters into their relaxation rooms for decades. Infused waters are a great way to add in antioxidants and flavors without the extra calories or sugar. There are no rules about infusing, simply add in your favorite fruits and refreshing herbs. To keep things fresh, be sure to change out your mixers every other day. Ones to try: -Cucumber and mint -Grapefruit and rosemary -Fresh berries and organic unsweetened coconut water -Pineapple and ginger Glass vs. Plastic Glass bottles are not only better for you because they are free of chemicals like BPA - a harmful chemical used to make plastic - but they are also easy to clean and won't melt when filled with hot beverages. Bonus: They are better for the environment. On the Go Convenience Carting around a liter of water isn't always an option. Many nutrition experts recommend a reusable water bottle with an infuser to add flavor and freshen up refills. Keep it simple by choosing a brand with a one-two-punch like BalanceDiet's water bottle infuser that combines the benefits of a glass bottle with a built-in infuser. Vary your recipes and The Challenge of staying hydrated will be a thing of the past. We can drink to that! For more infusion recipes or details on wellness, health and living a whole lifestyle with the BalanceDiet line, visit shop.gobalancediet.com About BalanceDiet BalanceDiet's signature detox diet, initially made popular on CNN, is part of a weight loss program specially designed for each individual client based on genetic testing and lifestyle.
