Syracuse Stage's THE SANTALAND DIARIES Begins 12/9
by BWW News Desk - Nov 19, 2015

Back by popular demand: David Sedaris' perfect antidote to holiday madness. For those who like a little jeer with their Christmas cheer, The Santaland Diaries offers Crumpet, a 33-year-old starving artist turned Macy's elf. It's the most Wonderful Time of the year, but who would know it from the bad Santas, naughty elves, cranky kids, and pushy parents who test Crumpet's last elfin nerve. With sardonic wit, Sedaris takes us all playfully to task for plunging into the Christmas spirit while missing the point. This is for mature elves only. (more...)

BWW Exclusive: Dame Judi Dench Discusses Shakespeare, Her Passion, CATS, Potential Broadway Return
by Matt Tamanini - May 27, 2016

Only some are able to ever identify their specific passion, far fewer are able to achieve, and only a select handful are able to make their passion their life's work; Judi Dench is one of those few. When I asked her why, despite a career spanning more than five and a half decades, and nearly every major acting award the world over, she continues to return to the plays of William Shakespeare, in a tone exceedingly gentle, yet slightly dismayed that the question need even be asked, she said, 'Cause that's my passion, Matt.'

BWW Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON Raises Cain at the Orpheum
by Caroline Sposto - Mar 18, 2016

Typically the press night buzz at the Memphis Orpheum starts in the lobby . . . or at least inside the foyer. Last night, however, it radiated for two square blocks in all directions as Mormon missionaries turned out in force to meet and greet theater goers. These clean-cut, youth, armed with literature and disarming smiles had driven all the way from Little Rock. They weren't protesting the show, just using the opportunity to tell their side the world Trey Parker and Matt Stone (Creators of South Park) and Robert Lopez, composer of 'Avenue Q' so famously lampooned.

Norma Burnson Lectures at Chicago Public Library, Donates 940 Books
by BWW News Desk - Mar 1, 2016

In January, 2016, during the week of Martin Luther King's Birthday, The Chicago Public Library children and patrons had a Wonderful Time downloading Norma Burnson's second book, 'Sustainable Food for Globe, Everyday People Producing Food in Abundance.' The total number of downloaded books amounted to 940, making it equal to a donation of $6570.00. Mrs. Burnson is a regular visitor to the Clearing Branch of Chicago Public Library, where she enjoys lecturing and reading from her books for members of the Midwest Garden Society. Her second book in the Sustainable Food for the Globe series is doing extremely well. In February, 2016, Norma's book received a review by Dr. David Chalk, d. Tec, LCE, ADE, a renowned business specialist from British Columbia, Canada. Dr. Chalk is acknowledged worldwide as one of the brightest minds on the planet today. In his review, Dr. Chalk stated, 'An eye-opener. An inspirational book by Norma Burnson that offers knowledge and insight on the world and food sustainability. Norma offers much rich information that will change your view on how we can sustain the planet. It is a real treat to read.' In this second volume, Burnson interviews sustainability leaders worldwide who offer a myriad of ways to save the planet through sustainability, using everything from aquaponics to organic community gardens, children's lectures and food-recovery systems. The locales covered span the globe from Pakistan to the UK and, of course, her home base, the US, but the principles and how-to knowledge in the books can be applied anywhere in the world. Mrs. Burnson's third book, 'Sustainable Food for the Globe, Future Pioneers: The Children,' will focus on the many health benefits for children who garden. One of the collaborators, Hunter, is a young autistic boy who found great peace and happiness when gardening. After taking up gardening, Hunter became relaxed enough to actually have long conversations with his parents. 'Ah, Mother Nature is wise,' said Mrs. Burnson. 'All of my books focus on one obvious issue: All living creatures on earth must eat to stay alive. Educating and empowering the future generation is what my third book is all about. I believe it is vital for children to learn about permaculture and organic gardening, how to revitalize the soil and to live sustainably, for they will keep our planet vibrant and alive for centuries to come.' Mrs. Burnson's third book is scheduled for release on Earth Day, 2017. For small peeks at the madness behind the scenes prior to the publication of a book, visit Norma's blog at normaburnson.com. For more information, visit: http://www.sustainable-food-for-the-globe.com. About Norma Burnson Mrs. Burnson received The International Women's Leadership Association's Delegate Award in 2013, in recognition of services rendered as a U.S. Navy Veteran and for demonstrating leadership in national and international business arenas; for dedication to her community as a college professor and mentor; for being a sustainable food activist and humanitarian. She is the Founder and Senior Partner at Burnson & Associates, LP and Director of Fundraising, Energime University, an innovative institution that teaches sustainability subjects worldwide.
