BWW Interview: Seth Rudetsky of BROADWAY'S BEST at NJPAC
by Leigh Scheps - Oct 3, 2016

If Max Bialystock used to be the king of Broadway, Seth Rudetsky has since taken over the throne. Not only was he juggling the album release of Disaster! on the day we met for this interview in a (noisy from construction) park on the Upper West Side, but at the same time, spearheading a dance remix video to Broadway for Orlando's 'What The World Needs Now Is Love.' 'We are filming a whole video with the ladies who did Beyonce's 'Single Ladies,' Seth explained. 'We are hoping that raises more money and more awareness.' (more...)

BWW Review: SUNNY THOMPSON Sparkles Brightly as MARILYN MONROE
by Don Grigware - Oct 19, 2015

Come an hour early to the El Portal Theatre and take a peak inside the lovely small Marilyn Monroe Theatre lobby, adjacent to the Mainstage and peruse the myriad of photos adorning the walls. They represent a delicious collection of candids of the iconic star. Then proceed on in to the Mainstage playing area for the 8 o'clock show ... you will gasp when Sunny Thompson comes on stage in character as MM. You first see her naked on a bed wrapped in silk sheets ...in live photographic implosions as the camera clicks away. The likeness will astound you.   (more...)

Romance Author Jaye Frances Releases Her New Erotica Suspense Series 'World Without Love'
by BWW News Desk - Nov 7, 2015

Jaye Frances has announced the release of "Betrayed," the first book in the new "World Without Love" series. In a striking departure from her previous work, the author injects her signature intellectual appeal to the emerging and popular erotica suspense genre that combines unexpected plot twists with adult sexual situations. When asked where the idea for the series came from, Jaye Frances said, "In many parts of the world, the buying and selling of sex is an acceptable practice - a regular part of established commerce. This concept became the basis of a story about a young American woman struggling to escape her life of virtual captivity, and in the process, discovers her own strength and power." "Betrayed" is set in contemporary times and centers around the main character, Jewel - a twenty-one-year-old girl who marries an ex-Navy officer seven years her senior. After saying goodbye to friends and family in California, the couple begins traveling the world in search of new adventures. Two years later, Jewel has everything going for her - a handsome husband, a promising future, and lots of time to explore an island paradise she now calls home. But when a group of strangers accompanies her husband home for a friendly game of poker, her life becomes a nightmare of deceit and betrayal. "With true-to-life characters, terrific dialogue, and a realistic crafting of setting, Jaye Frances confirms her reputation as a master storyteller, weaving an intense, sensual, and often heart-wrenching tale that spans two continents with intrigue, money, and power. A riveting mix of sex, deception, and pulse-racing plot twists . . . Betrayed is an erotic roller-coaster of suspense." - NUSA SUN The "World Without Love" series continues with a December 2015 release of book two, "Reunion," followed by the third installment, "Redemption," in March 2016. Jaye Frances' other books include "The Beach," a sci-fi supernatural tale about the possibilities-and horror-of wishful thinking; "The Kure," a paranormal-occult romance novel; "The Possibilities of Amy," a coming-of-age story about first love, and "Love Travels Forever," a collection of poignant short stories. Jaye readily admits her life's journey has been the result of an open mind and curiosity about all things irreverent, and she invites visitors to her website with the following caveat: "Be forewarned, my life has not followed the traditional path of homemaker, wife, and mother." "Betrayed" is available from Amazon in both paperback and ebook format. For more information about Jaye Frances or "Betrayed," visit her website at www.jayefrances.com (more...)

BWW Review: National Tour of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY Bows Gracefully at the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Dec 14, 2015

The Bridges of Madison County was a hit film in 1995 for Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood. The 2014 Broadway musical version with a gorgeous operatic score by Jason Robert Brown and stellar book by Marsha Norman is now playing at the Ahmanson downtown through January 17. When you look closely, there's so much to praise that it makes no sense whatsoever that the show closed early on Broadway and won only one Tony for Brown's music. It should have played on and on and walked away with a slew of awards. (more...)
