Imagine the world was once not just peaceful, but filled only with harmony and serenity and all the animals got along just fine. Paradise. A time before the existence of humans. And one day, one single tiny little bee, a curious and mischievous one, was getting bored of living the eternal life of a mother bee and wanted to try out her stinger, to see what happens. The Princess kissed a frog, poetically speaking, though in reality it was a mother bee, (queen bee) who stung the frog. The Bee's DNA slips into the frog, its eggs mutate, the offspring grows fluff on its skin, which happens to be of the exact structure as bee fur, a new hybrid comes about out of which a species evolves which will be the only mammal with slit pupils like reptiles and amphibians, the cat.

NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ The Lost Truth of Ancient Timesis the first volume of Author Leagan E. Kasper's new Book Series'The Tall Tale', providing readers with an alternative account of history, opposing everything we've been made to believe thus far. Instead of insisting it is the truth, Kasper chose to disclose Revelations about the history of mankind as a fictional tale, leaving it up to the reader to be the Judge. Judging if it's truth or fiction demands no effort, with Kasper's rationally explained version of events seeming far more reasonable than commonly known theories of today. No slaves, as asserted in The Tall Tale,built the pyramids, transporting rocks by rolling them over tree trunks. How easily desert sand is turned into stone is sensiblydescribed by the author, leaving us to shake our heads, questioning the common sense of modern day historians.

Broadway San Jose's Motown the Musical is a solid gold hit and played to an enraptured audience last night at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. Motown the record company was dreamed up by Berry Gordy in 1959 and the music world has never been the same. Gordy and his cavalcade of artists defined the sound of the sixties and seventies, breaking down racial barriers with a signature soul/pop sound that cut across the black/white divide at a time when segregation was still the law of the land. Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations were just a few of the artists that made up Motown. The staggering amount of talent, creativity and love that was the Motown Sound and the story behind its founder Berry Gordy -- all brought to the Broadway stage in Motown -- will touch your heart and put the beat back in your feet. Playing now through June 26 it is a must see song celebration and surely a show for your theatre bucket list.

A couple of things intrigued me about HalfMad Theatre's entry into this year's Capital Fringe. First off, the name Trey Parker was attached to it. After all, he created the totally non-politically correct TV show South Park and the mega- hit Broadway musical The Book of Mormon so it seemed interesting that a company would present the piece that started Parker on his meteoric rise to fame while in college. Second, the show is primarily performed with puppets with a few human characters. That just seemed like my kind of show. The show is the wonderful and slightly off-color extravaganza, Trey Parker's Cannibal the Musical!

While Rob and I were talking, we started chatting about the year in theatre and in life and BroadwayWorld.com's 10th Year in business and how it all began with his Dad taking him to see THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and how it led him down the path of becoming a fan of Michael Crawford. There's a story in there, that you may or may not know, but, it's a pretty safe bet that if that 'theatrical moment' hadn't occurred, this website might not be in existence. So ... today, I offer you MICHAEL CRAWFORD singing one of the most beloved traditional and holy songs of the season.

Has anyone ever asked you if you've got any ideas? When we first started making this show, we genuinely didn't have any. Which, looking back, is surprising for a couple of artists. But it was true.
