BWW Review: Courage Fights For Kindness In First Stage World Premiere ROBIN HOOD
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Feb 24, 2017

Enjoy an adventurous trip with First Stage and their singing Troubadour through the 14th century Sherwood Forest. In a collaboration with playwrights Joe Foust and John Maclay, Jeff Frank directs the world premiere Robin Hood--- complete with thrilling stage combat from the legendary anti-hero. This courageous Robin Hood 'asked for donations' from the English Elite at the point of his sword, collected and then contributed to the poor surrounding him in England. Among Robin's following where those, merry men and women who wanted to participate in as Maclay says, 'a rebellion against greed and corruption' in an attempt to right the wrongs in their world. Frank, Foust and Maclay turn the stage into Robin Hood's playground through Jody Sekas' stage design and Melissa Torchia's costume design, which allows an extremely fluid and fast paced production. Geoffrey, a young performer Jeff Burns from the Sherwood Forest cast, sings and strums Musical Director Jeff Schaetzke's original ballads playing the roving troubadour. His idiosyncratic lyrics make the audience laugh, as does the often contemporary, tongue in cheek humor throughout the play-often hilarious. While actor Dominique Worsley embodies a fierce, yet sympathetic Robin, Maclay's Sheriff of Nottingham and Foust's incomparable Archbishop of York stir their own brand of extraordinary humor and strength Trying to capture 'the Hood.'

Retired Marine Pens CRAPS: THE ULTIMATE WINNING STRATEGIES
by BWW News Desk - Feb 23, 2017

A new book released by Dog Ear Publishing shows the importance of chance in bringing about destiny. When a Christmas gift exchange with coworkers led to Will Thomas Jr. getting a book about how to play craps, he was hooked.

In 'Craps: The Ultimate Winning Strategies,' readers will find everything from ultimate winning strategies to the basics: table layout, the odds and betting, money management and determining risk level. Thomas shares his ups and downs of competing with casinos for 24 years and what he believes is winning strategies, including his first time in 2002 Trying those very strategies - and coming out $2,500 ahead, much to the shock of the craps dealers who initially mocked him but then changed their tune. Detailed charts outlining strategies and straight talk about the odds of winning create a powerful resource for anyone interested in taking a chance on the dice game known as craps. Thomas served 13 months in Vietnam from 1967-68 in the U.S. Marine Corps. He retired after 30 years of service as an engineering documentation specialist in Silicon Valley. He is part owner of Business Partnership LLC and is writing books about his experiences. The author graduated from Monroe High School in Georgia in 1964.
