Praise for Author and Educator Umm Juwayriyah: 'A couple paragraphs into the first chapter the author had me.' - Brooke Benoit, SISTERS MAGAZINE 'It's real, the characters seem so real, like real Muslims.' - Thomas Abdullah, Host of American Muslim 360 'Umm J weaves so many things relevant to Muslims into her stories: charity, fasting, prayer, kindness, and reversion. Cultures and personalities conflict in The Melting Pot that is Muslim America, and the author deals with these clashes sweetly and gracefully.' - Deborah McNichol, Author and Editor for Muslim Writers Publishing From bestselling educator and author, Umm Juwayriyah (Maryam A. Sullivan), comes a new urban Muslim novel about one American Muslim woman's personal journey through abuse, addiction, family discord, and finding the courage to renew her faith in the Most High, Most Merciful. A teenage Iman Johnson left home over a decade ago to follow behind a street loving hustler who promised her the world. When that world became too much for her to endure, mentally and physically, she found herself back in Pittsburgh, PA at her Muslim mother's doorstep seeking refuge. But will the Muslim family and community that she'd turned her back on years ago be ready to finally accept her or has too much time, emotions, hurt, and secrets built up between them to overcome? Iman will have to find the strength to face her past and relearn the basics if she ever hopes to find the sweetness of faith The Most High promises ... 'Tried & Tested' casts an intimate look into the lives of millions of indigenous Muslim American families and the hardships and blessings that binds them together against the odds. Umm Juwayriyah's unique voice and undeniable characters will not disappoint you. About the Author: Umm Juwayriyah (Maryam A.Sullivan) is a native of Springfield, Massachusetts and is a second generation American Muslim urban educator, business owner, and storyteller. She is the author of Tried & Tested, The Size of a Mustard Seed, Hind's Hands ~ A Story About Autism, and The Princess and the Good Deed.

BWW Review: Brilliant ReImagined OKLAHOMA! at 3-D Theatricals
by Don Grigware - Jun 20, 2017

When Oklahoma! was first produced on Broadway in 1943 it became the first smash hit for  the newly formed collaborating team Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and was also the first real book musical, preceded only by Showboat. It was a breakthrough musical, which when given a first-class production, is still, some 74 years later, without question, one of the greatest American musicals ever written. 'The Farmer and the Cowman' truly represents the philosophy of what America is all about, a unity and pride that is unmistakable. Oklahoma! is currently onstage in Redondo Beach, directed byT.J. Dawson, artistic director of 3-D Theatricals. He has beautifully succeeded in reimagining Oklahoma! for the 21st century. In the 40s it was not appropriate to portray racism onstage the way it clearly existed. Modern audiences, however, demand that musicals go a giant step further and explore life in all its complexities. I can thruthfully state that this Oklahoma! is quite unlike any production you have ever seen....and that means you should put it at the top of your must-see list. Our country has always been referred to as a melting pot culture. The expression rings in this produciton of Oklahoma! There's Ali Hakim (Drew Boudreau), the traveling pedlar, who sets his eyes on Ado Annie (Kelley Dorney). He is Persian. And in this production Jud Fry is African American (played by Rufus Bonds, Jr.). His hidden affections for Laurey (Julia Aks) are not only difficult for her to accept because of his low class, rough and cruel behavior, but being black in 1906 made you ... intolerable. Casting Fry as black adds a whole other dimension to the story. Fry seems beleaguered by previous war inju (more...)
