BWW Review: HOLLYWOOD REVISITED at Oxnard Civic Auditorium
by Cary Ginell - Sep 26, 2016

You've seen them. Gaudy costumes worn by Hollywood and Broadway stars, preserved and on display in museums and galleries.

Doctor Releases 'Triumph Over Tragedy: The Odyssey of an Academic Physician'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2016

'Triumph Over Tragedy: The Odyssey of an Academic Physician' is the remarkable new memoir written by William H. Frishman, M.D. At the age of 15, he lost his father following a premature heart attack. Aaron Frishman was on his way home from work when he died suddenly. He never had a chance to say goodbye. Smoking, a poor diet and struggles with poverty, including bankruptcy of his business and loss of his cherished Ford, ultimately led to his untimely death at the age of 46. William Frishman's grandfathers, father and uncles all had heart attacks before the age of 60. Dr. Frishman believes this is what motivated him to explore the origins and potential treatments for heart disease, 'Sadness from a tragedy has a shelf-life, but the grief endures and either expands you and gives you a greater capacity for empathy and achievement, or it diminishes you.'
