BWW Blog: Michael Hartung - The Calm Beforrrre The Storm
by Guest Blogger: Michael Hartung - Jul 8, 2016

Before a word is spoken, our show starts on our sturdy pirate ship as a raging storm throws us from one side of the "boat" to the other. At this point in our process, the tumultuous weather looks a lot like a group of guys rolling around on the floor, but that's nothing a of week of rehearsal and some great lighting can't fix! From this point forward, we arrre in "go" mode until we open. Yesterday was our last real day off until opening night and it sort of feels like we arrre actually heading into a crazy storm of our own. (more...)

BWW Review: JACK FERVER Mistakes The Kitchen for Camp
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 5, 2016

Jack Ferver never let up on his drag delivery. Switching arbitrarily from bad French to English or from danse to dance passed for plot in this cabaret act. The scantily clad men in the audience - I attended the June 30th, 2016 performance - lapped it up before they even had a chance to hear the next line. It was all good fun, though if there is an art to telegraphing intention it was not on display here. That was 'I Want You to Want Me': a surrealistic B movie romp ruled by a character with mystical abilities for no other reason than 'just because'. File it under lazy craftsmanship. The world that Mr. Ferver inhabited was self referential, sassy, and imbued with magic, not unlike a gay lounge. (more...)

Letting the Memory Live Again- How CATS Became a Phenomenon
by Nicole Rosky - Jul 31, 2016

The marquee in front of the Neil Simon Theatre encourages passersby to 'let the memory live again.' It's been almost thirty-four years since Grizabella, Mistoffelees and Rum Tum Tugger first bowed on Broadway, and now in 2016, the jellicles are back with a vengence. The impact that the show has had on audiences has been famously polarizing, and yet few other musicals in Broadway history have achieved greater success and notoriety than Cats. (more...)

by Marietta Lunceford - Jul 30, 2016

BWW Review: Lesli Margherita is All Brass and Belting in One-Woman Show 'Broad' at Birdland, Paying Tribute to the Women Who Never Backed Down
by Casey Mink - Jul 28, 2016

'Broad: A term originated in the 1930s meaning woman. Less respectable than 'lady,' but much more respectable than 'bitch.' Broad: An independent, aggressive, assertive woman, usually in show business. Broads sing loud, are sarcastic, and are in your face. Broads are generally moderately attractive or better, never seen without their best dresses and perfect makeup, and they know how to compete and win in a man's world.' This is how Lesli Margherita began her one-woman show at Birdland Jazz on July 25, the second of a two-performance return engagement at the club. Reading from a music stand so as not to mince words, Margherita recited the dictionary definition of her show's eponymous moniker, because if nothing else, through Broad, Margherita wanted to make sure her audience understood one thing: Broads like her will never be deterred.

BWW Review: Michael Streeter Gives Us a Fresh New Woman-Centered JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, at Post5
by Krista Garver - Jul 28, 2016

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR had its heyday before I was born. Of course, growing up as a musical lover, I had several Andrew Lloyd Webber compilation CDs, so I got to know the music, which I still think is rates among Webber's best. But, I'd never had the pleasure of seeing the actual musical until last weekend, when I took in Michael Streeter's production at Post5 Theatre. And I thought it was great! One of the people in my party had been lucky enough to see the original 1970 production on Broadway. He enjoyed this one as well. (more...)

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 You Tube: (more...)
