by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

Greg grows up on a farm in Charles City, Iowa. The son of alcoholic parents, neglected and left to fend for himself, Greg is drinking and driving at the age of thirteen. Never getting an allowance, he finds an easy way to access cash...once he masters his father's signature. Kindhearted Greg, feeling an inner desire to help people, dreams of becoming a police officer. At the age of eighteen, he is ready to pursue that dream, but his father does the unthinkable...putting Greg's life on hold and causing his dreams to shatter. Alienated from his family and feeling deep resentment, Greg spends the next few years in an alcoholic haze. Traveling from state to state and job to job, he struggles with a past he cannot forget. After fighting his own demons for years Greg is finally able to emerge a winner, he meets his guardian angel and begins to gain control of his destiny. He shares incredible stories of working for well-known celebrities to a debunked, self-proclaimed faith healer. 'My Guarded Secrets' A True Story, is a true page turner and is available on Amazon as well as other e-Book outlets Excerpt: Chapter 1 I had to be in bed by eight o'clock, tomorrow was a school day. I dreaded it, not school-but the nighttime. The sick feeling was always there, kind of like having a bad cold, but it was in The Pit of my stomach instead, and it got worse at night. I put on my pajamas and got into bed. I double-checked the alarm to make sure it was set for 5:30 AM. Brutus, my little Pekingese Pomeranian mix, who was also my best friend, jumped onto the bed and snuggled close beside me. I laid there in the dark-waiting-I knew what was coming. It wasn't long until I heard a commotion coming from the living room, doors slamming and things dropping to the floor. My body involuntarily flinched as the high-pitched sound of my mother's voice broke the silence. Each word was slow and deliberate as if she was trying to stab my father with each word. 'Where-in-the-hell-did-you-put-my-vodka-again...you son of a bitch!' Then I heard my father's deep voice as he yelled back. 'Go screw yourself, I didn't touch it! Why don't you just drag yourself over to the liquor cabinet and get another bottle!' I flew out of bed and ran for the closet. Brutus knew the routine; he was already ahead of me. I pulled the door shut and sat on a little shelf. Brutus jumped onto my lap. Sensing my fear, he whimpered and started licking my face. I kept a blanket in the closet and pulled it around us.

The Pacific Northwest Ballet Presents DIRECTOR'S CHOICE, 11/7-16The Pacific Northwest Ballet Presents DIRECTOR'S CHOICE, 11/7-16
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2014

For DIRECTOR'S CHOICE, the second program of Pacific Northwest Ballet's 2014-2015season, Artistic Director Peter Boal selects two PNB premieres paired with stunning repertory works in this absorbing mixed-bill. Opening the program, David Dawson's breath-taking, hyper-extended A Million Kisses to my Skin references the intoxicating bliss dancers experience while performing. Rassemblement, Nacho Duato's poignant work set to slave songs by Haitian artist Toto Bissainthe, voices communal yearning and resistance in a climate of oppression. Annabelle Lopez Ochoa's (Cylindrical Shadows) critically-acclaimed signature piece, Before After, a PNB premiere, unmasks the turmoil just before a relationship ends. The performance closes with Debonair, a world premiere by New York City Ballet's rising star Justin Peck, praised for "electrifying classical dance with [his] fresh vision" (Wall Street Journal). The program also includes a musical prelude to shine the spotlight on the nationally renowned PNB Orchestra, currently celebrating its 25th Anniversary season. DIRECTOR'S CHOICE runs for seven performances only, November 7-16, 2014 at Seattle Center's Marion Oliver McCaw Hall. Tickets start at just $28 and may be purchased by calling the PNB Box Office at 206.441.2424, online at PNB.org, or in person at the PNB Box Office, 301 Mercer Street. (more...)

You'll get no argument from me: Cheyenne Jackson is a powerhouse vocalist and his charismatic quotient is off the charts. It is easy to gush about his vocal prowess, his versatility as a singer and his movie star magnetism. He is a consummate crooner with a vocal ease that is equally adept at the Broadway, standard and pop/contemporary songbooks. So, why did his recent performance at The McCallum Theatre seem so uneven and why did it leave me and, upon eavesdropping on 'after-show lobby conversations', a myriad of other patrons feeling lukewarm?

Houston Grand Opera's 2014–15 season, the company's 60th anniversary season, includes the world premiere of A Christmas Carol by Iain Bell—the company's 55th new commission —from award-winning Dickens authority Simon Callow; the continuation of HGO's first Ring cycle, with the American premiere of La Fura dels Baus's groundbreaking take on Die Walküre; the American premieres of Sir Nicholas Hytner's The Magic Flute and Lee Blakeley's Sweeney Todd; a 60th Anniversary Gala Concert featuring mezzo-soprano (and HGO Studio alumna) Joyce DiDonato; and a host of career-shaping role debuts that speak to Patrick Summers's gift for casting.
