BWW Review: Swapping Hats and Inducing Hilarity with CDG's THE 39 STEPS
by Kristen Morale - May 3, 2016

Loosely based on the 1915 novel written by John Buchan, later made into the 1935 movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock and gradually turned into a staged comical farce in 2005 by Patrick Barlow, The 39 Steps is something quite wonderful to see when brought about by a gifted director and a very talented cast of four that could bring about such a myriad of wacky characters. Director Scott Hamilton, as he states in his curtain speech, was certain that he wanted to lead this show towards its absolute comedic potential, and now writing in hindsight, it is clear that he manages to do just that give quite an optimistic start to what will be a rather epic new season at the Chatham Drama Guild. In relation to that and just to mention, the Guild has been offering wonderful performances since the time Hitchcock's movie was made, so this show is sure not to disappoint anybody who enjoys an innocent and rather traditional form of visual, laugh-loud-comedy.

BWW Review: TITANIC Thrills in Mac Theatre Production
by Frank Benge - Mar 9, 2016

TITANIC is a musical with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and a book by Peter Stone that opened on Broadway in 1997. It won five Tony Awards including the award for Best Musical. Set on the ocean liner RMS Titanic which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912; TITANIC has improved with age. The music is simultaneously complex and accessible with lyrics that draw characters, offer thought provoking debate and fills in details with skill and depth. In the impressive production staged by Joshua Denning at McCallum Fine Arts Academy, it reveals itself to be a show of great musical complexity as well as being a show capable of stirring the heart and mind simultaneously, a welcome antidote to all the overblown mega-musicals of today.

Our Movie Critic Counts Down his 15 Favorite Movies of 2015
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 4, 2016

Now that 2015 is squarely in the rearview mirror, and everyone is back to work after the holidays, it is time to take a look at some of the best films of the past year. As was the case with my Top 15 TV Shows of 2015 list, this is not intended to be a comprehensive list. I am one man, and I have not yet seen every major movie released last year. However, as I continue to work through screeners and upcoming screenings (I live in Orlando, so not all of the awards-bait has been released here yet), I will count down the top 2015 releases that I saw during the calendar year. Notable omissions are BRIDGE OF SPIES, THE REVENANT, THE DANISH GIRL, and CONCUSSION, all of which I hope to see by the end of the week.

'Play Like a Girl' Founder Shares Tips for Short, Intense Workouts
by BWW News Desk - Dec 30, 2015

Kimberly S. Clay, PhD, MPH, MSW, Executive Director, Play Like A Girl! Now on Indiegogo Keep Your New Year's Resolution With a 20-Minute Work-Out Use this high-intensity plan to blast more calories in less time. Moving in any way burns calories but sometimes a busy life calls for workouts that pack a punch. Sure, you could burn several hundred calories walking at one pace on the treadmill but it would take about two hours to get there. To burn the most calories in the least amount of time, a high-intensity workout that gets the heart pumping and fires up your metabolism while using the largest muscles in the body is the way to go. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has been around since the 1970s but has become all the rage in recent years, topping the list of the hottest fitness trends in 2014. It gained new attention when Japanese trainer and scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata found that this form of training not only increases aerobic capacity, or stamina, but also improves anaerobic capacity, or ability to build muscle. HIIT is a training style comprised of short, intense periods or exercise at maximum ability, followed by short rest periods. The workout mixes high intensity cardio activities like sprinting and strength training to deliver maximum muscle tone and weight loss in the shortest amount of time, fitting into even the busiest schedules. The efficiency of this fat burning workout is what makes the HIIT training method so popular. Using the HIIT method, you can even get a super effective treadmill workout in 20 minutes or less. Essentially, it takes 60 seconds of intense activity, then 30 seconds of rest, done 8 to 10 times to maximize results. Short on time but need to jumpstart your new year? All you need is this HIIT treadmill workout to blast fat and tone muscle in the least amount of time! 20-Minute HIIT Treadmill Workout Start with a five-minute jog at a reasonably steady pace to warm-up and get your muscles ready to go. At the 5-minute mark, choose your 'high intensity speed' (aim for 10.0) and sprint at that speed for a minute. Then, select your rest speed and walk at rest speed for 30 seconds. Repeat the sprint at the highest intensity you can maintain adding an incline (preferably, 4.0) to mimic normal outdoor running conditions, and follow with 30 seconds of rest and recovery. During recovery, walk at rest speed to lower your heart rate and prepare for the next high-intensity interval sprint. Complete 8-10 rounds for a total of 20 minutes, including the workout and recovery. Cool down with a walk at a lower speed for two to three minutes, and stretch it out to avoid cramping. Dr. Kimberly S. Clay, aka Dr. Kim, is Executive Director and founder of Dallas-based charity, Play Like A Girl!, on a mission to inspire women and girls across the globe to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. One out of every three American girls is overweight or obese. That's 5.5 million. Of those ages 12-19, only 4% of girls are physically active. Meanwhile, millions are dropping out of sports due to lack of access and opportunity. Play Like A Girl understands The Crisis and is raising awareness nationwide. Follow on Twitter for updates.
