The Women is a comedy of manners by Clare Boothe Luce.

The play is an acerbic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of various wealthy Manhattan socialites and up-and-comers and the gossip that propels and damages their relationships. While men frequently are the subject of their lively discussions and play an important role in the action on-stage, they are strictly characters mentioned but never seen.

The original Broadway production, directed by Robert B. Sinclair, opened on December 26, 1936 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it ran for 657 performances with an all-female cast that included Arlene Francis, Ilka Chase, and Marjorie Main.

TOTAL ALPHA MALES Audiobook is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 21, 2016

As a man, do The Women you come in contact with perceive you as an 'Alpha' male? Or do The Women you socially interact with perceive you as more of a 'Beta' male? What if you are categorized as neither one exclusively, but instead, women perceive you to be more of a highly appealing blend of both archetypes? 'The Beta Male Revolution: Why Many Men Have Totally Lost Interest in Marriage in Today's Society' is the fourth audiobook release by Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie and his company, Mode One Multimedia, Inc. Currie released three previous audiobooks between July 2014 and March 2015, and 'The Beta Male Revolution' is considered to be somewhat of a 'prequel' to his first three releases. In this provocative audiobook, Currie examines the history of marriage in this country, and how the 1960s and 1970s permanently modified the attitudes that women have toward marriage, sex, and monogamy. 'Before 1960, just about all women wanted to wait until they were married before engaging in sex with a man for the first time, and most women expected to be married by no later than the age of 30. Over the next twenty years, that desire and expectation among women changed. Women began to become far more comfortable with the idea of engaging in premarital sex, casual sex, and giving birth to children without a husband being involved,' said Currie, who has been an author and professional dating coach since 2006. Currie asserts in his audiobook that because of the combination of new birth control methods, the Second Wave of Feminism, and the Free Love Movement (or what many referred to as 'The Sexual Revolution'), that women no longer sought the attention of just one type of man, but rather, different men to fulfill different roles in their lives. Currie's new audiobook places men in four categories: - Total Alpha Males - Alpha males with a few Beta traits and tendencies - Beta males with a few Alpha traits and tendencies - Total Beta Males Currie points out in his audiobook that in today's society, members of both genders want to spend time with some members of the opposite sex strictly for casual sex purposes, while they desire to spend time with other members of the opposite sex for either entertaining conversation, enjoyable social companionship, and/or emotional support and financial assistance. Currie asserts that the Alpha males are the men who women are primarily drawn to because of their high degree of masculinity, erotic dominance, and overall sex appeal. Currie says that the Beta males are the men who women enjoy being flattered by, entertained by, and 'wined and dined' and spoiled with material gifts and financial favors. 'The problem is that most of the Beta male types have become very frustrated. Some of them feel 'used' and totally exploited by women for their financial and materialistic resources, while others feel either ignored or relegated into women's dreaded 'Friend Zone' forever. The reality is, no single heterosexual man wants to remain 'just friends' with a woman who they find to be physically attractive and sexually appealing. It was the complaints and frustrations expressed to me by the Beta male types that motivated me to publish this book,' said Currie, who was born in Gary, Indiana and graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The audiobook version will be available for purchase on Monday, August 8, 2016 on and also on The Kindle eBook version is available right now on More biographical information about Alan Roger Currie can be found on (more...)

New Cookbook Shares Recipes from the Speed Family of Farmington
by BWW News Desk - Jul 14, 2016

How hot is a 'low oven'? How much butter is 'the size of a walnut?' Several members of the Corn Island Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) found out when they transformed a stack of heritage recipes into a new cookbook to benefit Farmington Historic Plantation in Louisville. The recipes-many of them well over 100 years old-were collected by Nell Speed Ream, the great-granddaughter of John Speed, who built Farmington. (The plantation is best known for Abraham Lincoln's three-week visit in 1841.) One of Nell Speed Ream's descendants recently offered use of the recipes to Farmington. Corn Island NSDAR, which had selected Farmington as a historic preservation project, offered to create a cookbook. A committee was formed to head the project; volunteers tested and updated the recipes; a local print-on-demand publisher offered her expertise to design the book; local publisher R. C. Linnell Publishing provided book design services and a local graphic designer developed the cover pro bono-it was a true community effort. Readers of Speed Family Heritage Recipes will find recipes for salt-rising bread, transparent pie, fritters, and eggnog served by James Speed during his term as attorney general in Lincoln's second administration. The book also includes a short history of Farmington and brief profiles of The Women who developed and served these dishes so long ago. Heritage Recipes is currently available on About Corn Island NSDAR: Corn Island NSDAR, organized in 2012, is the city's newest chapter. The chapter's missions are historic preservation, veterans' issues, women's issues, and genealogy. About Farmington Historic Plantation: John and Lucy Fry Speed founded Farmington, a hemp plantation, in 1816. Farmington, with its connection to Lincoln and its 14-room Federal-style brick home, is a popular attraction in the city. It is now part of Historic Homes of Louisville. Members of the cookbook committee are available for media interviews. (more...)
