BWW Review: Catch The 'Jersey Boys' While You Can
by BWW Staff - Sep 26, 2016

To call JERSEY BOYS a 'jukebox musical' is downright myopic, as underneath the musical's cotton-candy pop hits lies a piercing story of ambition, love, drugs, sex, greed, failures, triumphs, and yes, family values. However, it would take more than a fanatic mind to look beyond those monster hits to see the real heart of the show--one that tells of realities past that still ring true in today's cutthroat music industry.

BWW Review: Schmeater's TRUMP THE KING Mimics Current Political Events a Bit Too Much
by Jay Irwin - Sep 26, 2016

It would be fairly difficult to not know what's going on with the political campaign These Days especially all the asinine things a certain candidate keeps saying which have been fodder for every news cycle and comedian for months. So I guess it was just a matter of time before we get a bit of theater about him which we have with Theater Schmeater's world premiere play of Nick Edwards' "TRUMP The KING or POTUS DRUMPH: Another Sh**ty Adaptation of Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi which May or May Not Resonate with a Contemporary American Audience". And while the show offered up a few laughs I mostly walked away with two major problems with the piece, one structural and one personal (which others may well encounter too) but we'll get to those.

Laura Daleo Release New Vampire Fantasy Novel THE VOW
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

Finals are over, and twenty-year-old Claire Matthews can hardly wait to begin summer break until... she arrives home to an army of police swarming her parents' front lawn. Detective Reynolds delivers the dreadful news that the man and woman inside the home are dead, and Claire is forced to identify their mummified bloodless bodies. Her world comes to a grinding halt when she learns that it is her mother and father who are the deceased, and her younger brother, JJ, is nowhere to be found. The predator accused... a vampire. Claire is no stranger to vampires; in fact, These Days' vamps are a dime a dozen. One-hundred-thirty years ago a vow was made, combining the two worlds. A vampire's survival no longer required a human sacrifice. Vampire Centers were created, offering human blood through transfusion; yet, why were her parents bled dry? Why now? What changed? Could a rogue vampire be responsible? Was it possible vampires, Nate and Parker, JJ's best friends, suddenly hungered for human blood? 'The Vow' is available in both print and ebook formats.

BWW Review: Paula Dione Ingram Shines Brightly Celebrating 'Black Broadway' in New York Cabaret Debut at Feinstein's/54 Below
by Ashley Steves - Sep 2, 2016

2016 is one of Broadway's most diverse seasons, so much so it spawned a Twitter trending hashtag #TonysSoDiverse following the nominations for this past weekend's awards ceremony. 12 Black and non-Black actors of color were nominated for a Tony Award. For the first time in the Tonys' history, all four musical acting categories were won by Black actors, and if you walk down 45th Street, as soprano Paula Dione Ingram has, the block is lit up by 'Black Broadway.' It's a laudable moment in a theatre history that has not always been so and still continues to have a long way to go, the subject of Ingram's Dark Legacy: Bright Lights of Black Broadway, her debut show at Feinstein's/54 Below on June 4.

by Victoria Ordin - Sep 15, 2016

For her soulful, imaginative rendering of jazz, pop, and R&B music, Los Angeles native and septuple MAC Award winner Natalie Douglas has earned raves for two decades from American and British critics alike.

Crystal Hills Organics Launches Healing Crystals in Body Care
by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2016

Crystal Hills Organics is starting a hot new trend in body care by synergistically blending exquisite flowers, beneficial herbs, and high-vibration crystals. Founder and CEO of Crystal Hills Organics, Andrea Sazwan, says the products are truly unique as their formulas are made by incorporating the active constituents of botanicals as well as the healing energetic traits of crystals. Sazwan says her mission is to promote a health-conscious lifestyle that promotes the healing powers of nature and the high vibration of crystals. In addition to their body care products, Crystal Hills also has a blog that features DIY beauty, healthy recipes, wellness and information on crystals and botanicals. She really wants people to get back to basics and incorporate a bit of nature to experience optimum health in their lives. Even though her background is in biosciences and occupational health and safety, Sazwan says that one of her true passions has been learning about traditional remedies and natural alternatives that complement modern medicine. She went on to become a chartered herbalist and reiki master healer, and then studied organic skincare formulation. She loves reading about ancient methods and discovering what past healers may have used. Gathering information about crystals has definitely been one of her favourites. 'Since ancient times, crystals have been prized for their beauty, to symbolize power and for their healing capabilities. These Days, it seems that more and more of humanity is rediscovering their special qualities to help restore balance in our hectic and stressful lives.' She believes that what we apply on our body is just as important as the food we eat in restoring and maintaining the body's harmony and vitality. It's with these ideals that Crystal Hills Organics was formed. For more information, please visit crystalhills.com/ You Tube: www.youtube.com/channel/UCyIQ_d7pFXK7UFDmJHAjpNw (more...)
