BWW Review: Rivertown Theaters Presents THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
by Heidi Scheuermann - May 7, 2016

The first thing that came to my mind when I found out that Rivertown Theaters was doing SPELLING BEE was "Oh!  That's that show where Celia Keenan-Bolger wore the pink overalls!"  I don't know why that's the first thing that came to mind, but it was.  Maybe because I'm a fan of hers.  Maybe because it reminded me for some reason of my neon blue Tweety Bird overalls I had when I was a kid (I kid you not… My mom actually let me out of the house wearing that).  Maybe because those overalls reminded me of a time in life when things were simpler.  Happier.  Less complicated.

BWW Review: Seize the Stage! Rousing NEWSIES Leaps Over to OC's Segerstrom Center
by Michael L. Quintos - May 24, 2016

Now after more than a year, NEWSIES' North American First National Tour is nearing its conclusion, finally stopping at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through May 29 (the musical will motor down to San Diego the following week). After seeing the original Broadway production in NYC and then seeing its Los Angeles debut at the Pantages Theatre last year, experiencing this exuberant, high-energy, smile-inducing crowd-pleaser again here in my own home turf felt like a special gift. NEWSIES is a fun, uplifting night at the theater... and continues to be in subsequent, multiple viewings. With its winning combination of incredibly acrobatic dancing, family-friendly comedy, engaging story, awesome singing, and dazzling showmanship, there is a lot to love with this show---whether you're 5 or 95. Heck, it certainly made a #Fansie out of me. (more...)

BWW Review: Epic Theatre's Perfectly Twisted TOTAL STRANGERS
by Andria Tieman - May 16, 2016

Based on the classic novel Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith, Epic Theatre's page to stage season re-write imagines a deftly wrought twist both in the gender of the protagonist and antagonist as well as almost everything else that happens. Two women meet on a train, that much is familiar, but the rest of the story is one unexpected twist after another that leaves the audience almost exhausted at the end, but still completely satisfied. Anyone who has seen a show at Epic knows that sets are minimal and dialogue and performance rule. This works incredibly well thanks to the talents of Hannah Lum as Georgia and Kelly McCabe as Beth. What is essentially two women having a conversation becomes a fascinating back and forth that ratchets up the tension with every word. Epic always proves that you don't need elaborate sets to tell a compelling story, and this show is a fantastic example of the power perfectly chosen words delivered by skilled actors. (more...)

BWW Review: WORKING Reminds Us We're More Than Our Jobs
by Alexander Garza - Jun 7, 2016

WORKING is based on Studs Terkel's well-known book of interviews with U.S workers, which retells the accounts of men and women and presents the meaning that these jobs bring to our lives. This classic musical was first adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso and premiered at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. The show later ran on Broadway briefly before entering the national regional theatre circuit. The show was updated in 2012 with two new songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda, and features the classic numbers from artists such as Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, and James Taylor.

BWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - BACKBEARD Finds Its Audience
by Guest Blogger: Samantha Tirrell - Jun 6, 2016

Backbeard: A New Musical found its first audiences this past Wednesday, and we were tremendously busy leading up the first performance. Regardless of what time of day it was, a plethora of artists were working around the clock to see the visions of Backbeard's creators through to opening day. The final week before opening was an integral period of growth for artists, creators, designers, and technical staff. After weeks (or in Backbeard's case, years) of immersion in the text and the projected visions of artists, the final stretch presented the actualization of the piece, and the monstrous effort of a family of artists was realized.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Bohlmann - Audition Anxiety
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Bohlmann - Apr 27, 2016

I think it is safe to say that all actors hate auditions. No matter how big or how small, there is nothing relaxing about standing in front of a table of people whose jobs are to sit there and judge you. Although auditions are not fun, it is something that we all have to endure in order to make it into shows (unless you're Idina Menzel and can just get roles thrown at you all the time. But sadly there is only one Idina).  (more...)

BWW Review: CHICAGO Sensualizes Murder
by Katherine Waddell - Apr 22, 2016

When I first heard that a Catholic college, Saint Mary's College to be exact, was putting on the musical Chicago, I was skeptical. Knowing that Chicago is quite the risque musical with all types of salacious subject matter, I wasn't quite sure how they were going to pull it off. Well, let me be blunt, Saint Mary's did not look very Catholic this past Saturday night when I saw the second showing of the musical. (more...)

Thinspa Celeb Spa Director Offers 9 Tips to Lose Belly Fat
by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2016

We all want that flat stomach but sometimes it seems as if no amount of sit-ups will whittle down that waist. Before you beat yourself up, take a step back and examine your daily regimen, advises thinspa celebrity spa director Renata De Abreu. 'Many times the culprit is gas or water retention,' De Abreu says. If you've given yourself a day or two to readjust your body by drinking plenty of water and exercising and you still don't see results, try these tips to help you say goodbye to belly fat. 1. Elimination Is Key: Let's get started with the biggest factor in losing belly fat ? elimination (pooping). Although De Abreu admits it's not the most glamorous thing to talk about, the frequency of elimination is important for weight loss and overall health. It is ideal to go at least once a day, twice is even better. 2. Watch Your Water Intake: Avoid drinking any fluids while eating which can expand the food and cause bloating. In order to digest food correctly, chew thoroughly and drink 30 minutes before or after your meal. Aside from eating, it's still vital to ... 3. Stay Hydrated: While it is important to watch your water intake, it is also vital to stay hydrated throughout the day so that your body can digest your food and flush it out. Bottom line: Drink plenty of water throughout the day. 4. Avoid Chewing Gum: When you chew gum you are also swallowing air, hence more air and bloating in the abdominal area. 5. Study up on Digestion: Do some research on how digestion works. For example, milk is not necessary in an adult's diet after childhood. Check your tolerance for dairy and look to alternate options if needed. 6. Say No to Carbs After 8 p.m.: As your day starts to wind down be sure to keep your meals light with healthy choices such as light soups, salads and proteins. At night, it's especially important to pay attention to how you eat. 7. Abs Aren't Always the Answer: Exercise is important but make sure you are doing moves that flatten your stomach instead of build muscle. Practices such as Pilates and yoga are great ways to tone without becoming bulky. It's also important to incorporate cardio into your workout regime to help burn off any unwanted stomach fat. 8. Give Self-Massages: By incorporating self-massage into your evening regimen you will engage the lymphatic areas that are key to proper digestion. 9. Get Some Shut Eye: Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things you can do. A lack of sleep causes stress and stress causes the body to retain fat. Make sure to sleep at least 6-8 hours a night. When you sleep less than 6 hours a night, your body wakes up hungrier, making you want to eat more throughout your day. To help you wind down at The End of the Day, try aromatherapy, acupuncture, warm showers or a cup of almond milk before bed. These little tricks will help reduce stress and give you a better night's sleep. Troubleshooting: If none of these tips seem to work, then ask your physician to measure your cortisone levels. When the cortisone hormone level is high it can cause salt retention resulting in body bloat. Maintenance: Once you've got the belly fat under control, make an appointment at a local thinspa for an extra push in the right direction. Non-invasive aesthetic treatments like laser liposuction and radio frequency can help to contour the body, tighten the skin and break down fatty cells. Be sure to stay active. Many people stop their regular maintenance routine once they start seeing results. Don't underestimate your body's cell memory. The body's cells have a memory of the amount of fat retention they are allowed to have. This memory takes about 6 months to erase. Make sure your body cell memory gets used to your 'new' fat intake before you fall back into your 'older' and bigger fatty retention cells. For more on living a thinspa life, email Christina Sears, Director of Marketing, at christina.s@joinelements.com. (more...)
