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.

Selling Homes: The Mold Problem
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2014

BALTIMORE, Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Mold is an ever constant worry for those looking at selling a property in the Maryland and Washington DC metropolitan area.

Listing agents do not want to deal with mold issues, because it results in a lot of headaches, because buyers are always cautious about the development of health problems at a later especially with young children. However, there are preventive measures that can be done if you possibly find mold. One of the first things that could be done is testing. (more...)

Harry Houdini – America's premier Escape Artist, Showman extraordinaire, potentially a template for that most American of literary creations, the Superhero, and, if you believe the premise of the current miniseries on The History Channel, a person psychologically addicted to running away from his own person and reality.

BWW Reviews: BEST OF ENEMIES Enlightens as It Entertains
by Joseph Baker - Sep 2, 2014

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Circuit Playhouse's production of Mark St. Germain's BEST OF ENEMIES - a civics lesson or an evening at the theatre. As I settled into my seat and gazed at the essentially bare set (a few platforms and chairs), I listened to bits and snatches of speeches and recollections by the likes of Barry Goldwater, Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King, and 'ordinary' people affected by the changes wrought by Civil Rights legislation and, in particular, the desegregation of schools. While waiting for the play to begin, I recalled just having seen MARY POPPINS last weekend at Playhouse on the Square; I thought of 'Just a Spoonful of Sugar' making the medicine go down - and considered Playhouse's crowd-pleasing musical version of John Waters' HAIRSPRAY, which drew theatre-hungry crowds just a few weeks ago. Waters, I thought, had the right idea: The seriousness of racial injustice was made delightfully palatable by the sweetness and humor of the songs in that show. I dreaded what was to follow. However, like the main characters of the play I was about to see, I had my own misconceptions, for BEST OF ENEMIES held many surprises for me - and all of them good. (more...)

Labor Day Weekend Forecast
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Aug. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) The last big weekend of the summer is rapidly approaching. Luckily, the marine forecast for much of the country is looking bright, but it's always best to know before you go. To help recreational boaters plan their Labor Day Weekend adventures, the marine forecasters at put together a short synopsis of what to expect on The Water. As always, monitor your local waters via before you leave the dock. West Coast Offshore high pressure will interact with inland troughing/low pressure to set up moderate to fresh NW winds off much of the West Coast through the holiday weekend. Lighter and more variable winds are expected for some nearshore areas at times, especially inside the Southern California Bight during the mornings as well as portions of the Pacific Northwest. The current large S/SE swell from Hurricane Marie that is impacting portions of California will be on the decline. East Coast Hurricane Cristobal will move out to sea this weekend and its lingering swell will ease into the holiday weekend. A high pressure will gradually slide offshore through Saturday and Sunday setting up increasing S/SW winds and short-period seas for exposed waters. A cold front will approach New England on Labor Day — be sure to check updates on Buoyweather to see how this may impact local boating conditions. Gulf Coast A high pressure from the Atlantic will extend over the Gulf of Mexico, producing mainly moderate ESE/SE winds over the Gulf, though there will be some pockets of stronger winds/seas in places. It's always a good idea to keep an eye on the tropics this time of the year as well. Florida Offshore high pressure will take control of the weather pattern leading to mainly light S/SE to variable morning winds with increasing sea breezes in the afternoon. A bit stronger eastern winds are expected in South Florida though. In addition, the recent elevated seas the Sunshine State has experienced will come down a bit through the weekend. Caribbean Mainly moderate to fresh trade winds expected, but all eyes will be on a tropical wave moving through the region for potential development. The tropical wave will likely bring unsettled weather to portions of the Caribbean over the weekend. In addition, stronger trade winds and short-period seas are likely north of Colombia per normal. Hawaii Light to moderate trade winds (5 to 15 knots) are expected for much of the weekend. The trades will be lightest during the morning hours. We are looking for a decent sized swell from Hurricane Marie to reach east/northeast exposed shores on Friday before easing through the weekend. A modest long-period southern hemisphere swell will also produce occasional hazards near south-facing shores, especially near harbor entrances/inlets. Great Lakes A front will approach on Friday, setting up moderate to strong S winds for Lakes Huron, Michigan, and Superior while a bit lighter winds are forecasted for Lakes Erie and Ontario. A complex frontal system will set up highly variable and at times shifting winds for the region for Saturday and Sunday, before increasing S winds develop over the western lakes again on Labor Day. Overall, lots of changes expected for the Great Lakes with potential for showers/thunderstorms at times so please monitor the forecasts closely. For up-to-the-minute marine forecasts, visit or download the free Buoyweather app via iTunes or Google Play. (more...)
