In a small town along the Onkeenton River, a gentle rain starts to fall as the town gathers for breakfast at the café. From the pontificating mayor to the schoolgirl hastily preparing her assignment on dams, the rain is a reminder of past floods and a metaphor for the cycle of life. As the townspeople prepare to fight the rising waters, will their efforts save the town or will the river wash away more than just their homes? In the aftermath of the storm, lives will both be forever changed and remain the same. Featuring a score filled with folk sensibility and pop references, The Water highlights a tight-knit community dealing with everyday life on a floodplain, lived at a price and loved with a passion.

Here we are, at the end. It's a bittersweet moment to say goodbye to a show as brilliant as BOARDWALK, but it must be done. So raise your glasses 'to the lost' one last time, waving off an exceptionally superb show that we loved with all our hearts! This ultimate episode, entitled 'Eldorado', meaning a land of weath and opportunity, opened in a parallel scene to what we are used to seeing in our opening credits. Nucky, on the shores of Atlantic City. It's different this time however. It's darker, Nucky removes all of his items of wealth and stature, and dives head first into the raging tides of The Water, a truly incredibly metaphor for the door to Hell and darkness Nucky walked through and never came back out of.

BWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the WaterBWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the Water
by Christi Esterle - Oct 24, 2014

You'd think a play called Psycho Beach Party would be a little more, well....crazy. But Charles Busch's affectionate parody of 1960s beach movies seldom seems more unhinged than the cheerful teen romps it draws inspiration from. Oh, it's not all sun and fun in the sand, to be sure. There's a fair amount of sexual kink, a domineering mother who could give Margaret White a run for her money, and revelations of a tragic past, but it all feels so light. The poster for the Theatreworks production, featuring a knife-wielding beach bunny, promises a gruesome good time that the play never really delivers. (more...)

The price of home delivered fresh water is the biggest bargain available to consumers in the United States, according to water advocate and Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne, However, Kleyne adds, fresh clean water is becoming increasingly expensive to locate, impound transport and process. During the global fresh water crisis, with the US experiencing increasing drought, a growing population, widespread water wasting and lagging technology, fresh water cannot continue to be sold at a loss.

by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 20, 2014

Today we are talking to the gifted composer and lyricist behind the earth-shattering score for Broadway's biggest recent hit, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, the versatile and passionate Stephen Trask. Shedding considerable light on the development of the idiosyncratic rock musical, Trask discusses his influences and the organic way in which the outre show developed from humble beginnings at downtown bar Squeezebox in the mid-1990s, to Off-Broadway hit at the turn of the new century all the way to the rapturously received feature film adaptation, and, now, the 2014 Broadway production. Trask also details his affection for Tony Award-winning lead actor Neil Patrick Harris and looks ahead to the new leading man donning the titular wig, Andrew Rannells. Additionally, Trask also shares news on the forthcoming sequel to HEDWIG currently being developed with John Cameron Mitchell and teases some of what we can expect from the hotly anticipated theatrical experience. Furthermore, Trask reflects on his own upbringing and musical influences and how that informed the composition of the score for HEDWIG, as well as his own favorite performers. Plus, Trask reflects on his fruitful career as a movie scorer in Hollywood and comments on his upcoming musical endeavors, including two original stage musicals - JUST THE BLACK KEYS, a real-life inspired original musical potentially involving Peter Askin and Michael Mayer, as well 15 MINUTES, a Studio 54-centric period piece written with Rick Elice - as well as much, much more.

SwimFast Ergometer Swim Machine is LaunchedSwimFast Ergometer Swim Machine is Launched
by BWW News Desk - Oct 16, 2014

SwimFast Ergometer: A new training tool to help swimmers, from elite to enthusiast, perfect their stroke. KayakPro, official paddling Ergometer supplier to the Olympics Games, has just announced swimmers seeking accurate feedback SwimFast. The first swim-specific Ergometer that can truly replicate a swimmers experience in The Water on dry land. SwimFast is the ultimate swim training and coaching tool for on their stroke and for training sessions when it's not possible to get in the pool. The highly adjustable machine accommodates every swimmer's power, position and specific body shape and size. SwimFast maximizes the athlete's time in The Water. SwimFast has benefits not found in any other trainer: • Patented internal mechanics makes left and right hand resistance equal. • An adjustable rotational bench mimics the natural body movement of swimming. • The patented airbrake flywheel has a positive catch and zero time lag at stroke initiation for smooth action and maximum training benefit through the swimmer's full stroke. • Variable resistance gearing lets the swimmer set the trainer for his or her strength. • A forehead support keeps the swimmer's head in a natural, neutral position. • SwimFast can be integrated with the Halo Trainer template, to establish the essential high elbow catch and vertical forearm stroke. • The adjustable contoured bench and leg support can accommodate any body, for a comfortable, natural and precise fit. • SwimFast is compact: it sets up and collapses in less than a minute, small enough to store upright in a closet or cupboard. Olympic Gold medal Triathlete Canadian Simon Whitfield calls SwimFast 'an essential machine to improve your swimming, whether you're working on your stroke, your catch, high elbow entry or when you just need a solid cardio workout.' Like KayakPro's other award winning ergs, SwimFast lets athletes track performance, from calories burned to power generated, intervals, length of session, splits, heart rate and more through the erg's console and connected ANT+ devices. Coming soon: KayakPro's SwimFast iOS and Android apps, will let a swimmer set the console from any smart device, choose, program and record training sessions without getting off the bench. About KayakPro: Official canoe and kayak Ergometer supplier to the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympics, KayakPro is the world leader in innovative design and production of sport-specific Ergometers for elite athletes and enthusiasts.
