LEWISTON/AUBURN - The recent Broadway hit, “Time Stands Still,” makes its Maine premiere March 15-24 at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre. Intelligent, witty and thought-provoking, “Time Stands Still” explores the romantic and professional relationship of a photojournalist and a war correspondent hoping to make a difference in the world by traveling to the hotspots of global conflict.
When she was 16 years old, Debbie Gibson wrote, produced and recorded her first album for Atlantic Records, “Out of the Blue,” a debut that spawned five top-40 hits and made her one of the major success stories of the ’80s. One of those hits, “Foolish Beat,” landed Gibson in the Guinness Book of World Records, when she became the youngest artist to write, produce and perform a Billboard #1 single. She retains the record for being the youngest female to do so.
From the outside, Gibson appeared to be an overnight success, but she recalls the years of rejection that lead her to that moment. “I was rejected from ‘Star Search’ – literally 10 times. I auditioned over the course of the entire run of that show and I never made it – not once,” Gibson told me in a recent phone interview.
NEW YORK - “The Book of Mormon” arrived on Broadway like a bawdy toddler, cursing and making poo jokes, but winning hearts anyway. Now it’s ready for a road trip.
The nine-time Tony Award-winning musical opens its first national tour in Denver this month after its creators have gently prepared the little sister version to stagger off without them.
“Doing a musical is like having a kid,” says Trey Parker during a break in rehearsals in New York. “It’s out there alive somewhere. It’s not like a movie or a TV show where what we intended is what everyone will see. The kid can act out. The kid’s going to do what it wants to do.”
BANGOR - During the month of April the McDonald's restaurant located at 632 Broadway in Bangor will celebrate the grand re-opening of its newly renovated store with the community. The celebration will include charity events, weekly giveaways and daily menu specials. The Broadway McDonald’s restaurant is owned and operated by Gary Eckmann of Hampden.
“I am very pleased to have been a part of the Bangor business community since 1986,” stated Eckmann. “I look forward to welcoming all of our former customers - and new ones, as well - to our remodeled restaurant still located at 632 Broadway, where it has been for the last 47 years.”
Reflecting the newest McDonald’s look being rolled out nationally, the Broadway restaurant’s interior renovations include a remodeled dining room, restrooms and front service counter with upgraded equipment to better serve customers. On the exterior, the new roofline features a yellow arch and a double drive-thru provides the ability to take customer orders two at a time for faster service.
