by BWW News Desk - Aug 3, 2016

The American Diabetes Association is inviting riders of all levels to join the celebration and be part of the Stop Diabetes movement by taking part in the annual New York City Tour de Cure, a cycling event on August 20 at Icahn Stadium on Randall's Island, to help raise funds to change the future of diabetes and help stop this devastating disease. Beginning at Icahn Stadium, the New York City Tour de Cure will be a day to remember filled with scenic views of the city and New Jersey, challenging rides, and a supportive community of passionate individuals who are standing up against diabetes. Tour de Cure is designed for riders of all levels from the 3 or 6-mile family ride around the island, to a 100-mile century ride that stretches to the lakes of northern New Jersey and the Campgaw Mountain Reservation. The routes will feature rest stops with food to fuel the journey, mechanical support and volunteers to cheer riders on. 'Our participants are taking the ride of their life by helping to raise funds for the nearly 30 million Americans with diabetes,' said Kristine Magnifico, Market Executive Director for the American Diabetes Association. 'Every mile they ride and every dollar raised brings us that much closer to stopping this disease that affects more than 12% of New Yorkers.' Individuals and teams composed of co-workers, family and friends from around the region will gather on the Island to participate in the event. They will join other cyclists and volunteers from across the country. The Tour de Cure raises funds through registration fees and pledges collected by the cyclists. To ride or volunteer, visit www.diabetes.org/nyctour. The New York City Tour de Cure is sponsored nationally by Lilly, Primal and Gold's Gym. The American Diabetes Association is leading The Fight to Stop Diabetes and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

BWW Review: A True King Rises with KING LEAR at Elements Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Aug 17, 2016

The truth be told, I have neither read nor seen performed Shakespeare's King Lear, and was therefore as unfamiliar with the plot and its characters as basically anyone can possibly be; I suppose it wasn't mandatory reading when I went to school, for what reason I cannot possibly imagine. Although, I have always loved a good play or musical with traces of a tragic story at its core - a plot that is both trying on the actors and audience and therefore simply beautiful in how you are compelled to react to something with so much depth and significance. Having just seen King Lear at the Elements Theatre Company, not only was I introduced to a new theater in addition to a play I always wished to learn more about, but in such a way that created both a wonderful first impression of and precedent for this - nay, any - future Shakespearean production I plan to see. Even though this show is one of the more tragic ones you are ever bound to see, it really is a true king of a performance to behold. (more...)
