Author Helen M. Norris wrote 'Black Diamond Destiny' (published by AuthorHouse) after retiring from teaching at 72, but due to her untimely death, the novel never made it to a publisher's desk. Now in honor of Helen's memory, her son, T. Randolph Norris, has published his mother's poignant and heart-wrenching novel of a family of West Virginian coal miners.

This Fall, Amore Opera presents the unprecedented double bill of Don Pasquale and the American premiere of Olivo e Pasquale, presented as The Pasquale Saga. Though both comedies are composed by Gaetano Donizetti and with title characters of the same name, these two operas were originally unrelated. However, as presented and conceived by Amore Opera's Artistic Director, Nathan Hull, the two plots are interwoven, such that "Olivo e Pasquale" is presented as a prequel to the more familiar opera, and the two Pasquale characters are now one and the same. The action of the two comic operas has been set in early 1800's Sicily, and Don Pasquale has been merrily re-imagined as a crime boss.

Directed by the multi-talented Tim Fudge, who does double duty as music director of the piece, Sanders Family Christmas is an affectionately drawn tribute to simpler times that is sure to evoke memories of home and hearth - and if you're country-born, as am I, you'll find yourself missing family members who are no longer with you. That alone makes the show an ideal pick for this sentimental season of the year, but it's Fudge's direction and the commendable efforts of his very talented cast that make it one of the year's strongest productions.

Sometimes last minute changes of director can raise a struggling play into a masterful team effort showing the brilliant humor meant to be mined from an award-winning script. Such was the case for co-director/actor David Graham when two previous directors had to step aside and he was asked to take over directing TABLE MANNERS at Little Fish two days before the first rehearsal. Along with his co-director Stephanie Coltrin, the perfect casting in all the roles and the skill of knowing just how far to take the characters in this comedy of family manners gone bad makes for two hours of close-up fun for every member of the audience.

'This is the future' begins what the DCA describes as a 'darkly comic fable' about the failures of urban development. If this is the future, then I guess we're all going to be stuck in EPCOT. Sure! Cities have problems, but its citizens, even the poor ones, are glossy and every social ill is wrapped up in a pretty unrealistic way. This city is not Chicago. In fact, I can't imagine this city as any city in the United States or Canada for that fact. Even Toronto can't be this goody-goody! This play promised a comic exploration of the themes of Plato's Republic but delivers nothing except the playwright's soap box (as evident by the final scene). Was this really written by one of Canada's most celebrated playwrights?

When the first production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF opened on Broadway, many wondered how it would do post war and what people would think of the strong history of the Jewish people of Russia. It didn't take long to find out that the show was a hit amongst many theater goers and has made history itself as the history of the story takes us back to when things were very different. BWW was able to chat recently with Carol Beaugard who plays Yente the matchmaker as FIDDLER ON THE ROOF prepared to make a stop in San Antonio, Texas at the famous Majestic Theatre.

What if Shakespeare wrote The Godfather? Pacific Theatre is proud to present Classic Chic's production of Corleone: The Shakespearean Godfather by David Mann. The Corleone family is on the top of the New York crime food chain, with Vito Corleone at the head of the family. That is until local drug baron Virgil "The Turk" Sollozzo attempts a coup. When it doesn't work out, a chain of corruption and murder is set in motion that only ends when son Michael, previously uninvolved in the "family business" exacts violent revenge and takes his place as the new king, spilling more blood than Macbeth. An epic tale of power, destiny, betrayal, family, and honour, could Coppola's movie masterpiece actually be an Elizabethan tragedy?
