With the encouragement of her mother, as well as her own ability to dream, draw, and take action, she creates the best team for success. In a recent strategy meeting to discuss the all-important secret mission, an agreement was reached with the Statue of Liberty (Green Copper Lady) for her help to 'enlighten the land' because she can 'imagine it and understand.'

This book has been called 'The New Yorker's Dr. Seuss' and appeals to humans of all ages, especially ones who are 5 - 10 years old and have a sense of humor.

BWW Blog: Naomi Melvin - Somebody's Eyes: Rehearsals Begin!
by Guest Blogger: Naomi Melvin - Jun 29, 2016

I walked into the Randolph Theatre this morning to see the whole cast and production team of Footloose gearing up for the day. In the audience, some cast members were reuniting after a week off while others were going over lines. By the stage, director/choreographer Lisa Stevens, co-choreographer Jeff Dimitriou and music director Mark Camillleri were chatting with our stage manager, Alice Ferreya. New faces entered the room, all contributors to the project. The buzz was extremely exciting. The best event to compare it to is the first day of school. Ironically, the space resembled our first day at Randolph almost two years ago. This theatre was the place where our group congregated for the very first time. And now, here we are!  (more...)

Martichenko Releases DRIFT AND HUM
by BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2016

As Canada Day approaches on July 1st, Canada and its prime minster, Justin Trudeau, have a high profile on the world stage. The U.S. presidential election is producing excellent press for America's northern neighbor. Google reported a record number of searches for 'move to Canada' since Super Tuesday. (Google Trends reported a surge in similar searches in Britain since the Brexit votes were announced last week.) But are Americans truly prepared to live the life of a Canuck? Canadian-American author Robert Martichenko can discuss what it was like to grow up in northern Canada, and offer helpful advice for U.S. citizens who are considering crossing the world's longest undefended border to emigrate to Canada. He can discuss these and other common questions: Does running away from a dysfunctional election enable you to qualify for refugee status? Are all Canadians obsessed with hockey? What the heck is poutine? Where are the igloos? You mean the U.S. is not the biggest country in the world? Martichenko is a speaker, writer, poet and novelist. His new book, 'Drift and Hum: The Great Canadian-American Novel' (, won the Canada Book Award. 'Drift and Hum' has been described by IndieReader as 'a delightful exploration of the bonds of friendship and love, and an unforgettable epic depiction of youth's passage into adulthood.' This debut novel tells The Story of the four 'Beaver Brothers' who embark on adventure after adventure in their quest for peace of mind in the Canadian North and the American South. Robert Martichenko was born in Timmins, Ontario and has lived in the U.S. for the past two decades. An entrepreneur and CEO of LeanCor Supply Chain Group, Martichenko is the author of several successful business books and a novel, 'Drift and Hum.' He received the 2015 Distinguished Service Award from the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and was chosen as a 2015 C-Suite honoree by Venue & LEAD Magazine. (more...)

BWW Review: Classic, Fantastic WEST SIDE STORY
by Andria Tieman - Jun 28, 2016

WEST SIDE STORY, the classic retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in New York City places our star-crossed lovers on either side of a turf war between rival gangs.  It's a play so iconic and so familiar that even if one hasn't actually seen it, he or she has likely heard the songs and knows the names of Sharks and Jets.  Even if you've seen it 100 times, it's very worth stopping by Theatre by The Sea for another viewing.  Sometimes a show is practically perfect and doesn't need much tinkering, but skilled direction, choreography and costumes can still elevate a classic to new heights.

Tales from our backyard need much more service in the broader scene, something Tunks Productions has long given local stories, and Flame Trees is no exception. The return of a young woman to the town she burned to a cinder several years ago is fraught with anger, regret and a huge secret. A tight-knit community is fractured by Tess' defiant return to reconnect with the family she lost in a piece reminiscent in tone and plotline of The Dressmaker. (more...)

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 6/28/16- DREAMGIRLS
by Stage Tube - Jun 28, 2016

Dreamgirls features music by Henry Krieger and lyrics and book by Tom Eyen. Based upon the show business aspirations and successes of R&B acts such as The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and others, the musical follows The Story of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois called 'The Dreams', who become music superstars.

BWW Review: PATIENCE & SARAH Shines Light on Women in Love in 19th-Century New England
by Richard Sasanow - Jun 28, 2016

PATIENCE & SARAH—at least in the production of this chamber opera seen this past week at the Players Theatre in Greenwich Village, as part of the New York Opera Fest and 18 years after its premiere at Lincoln Center Festival—is a beautiful but somewhat lopsided affair. While it tells of the love shared by the women of the title, despite the objections and confusion of their families—Patience is educated, wealthy and a painter, Sarah's a poor, illiterate farmer--it seems really to be The Story of Sarah.
