Philadelphia, PA - Plays & Players presents Valentine’s Va-Va-Voom, a special Valentine’s Day themed presentation by the Hear Again Radio Project.  The featured episodes are “Puppy Love” from the show Our Miss Brooks and “Blondie Gets a Valentine” from Blondie.

Stepping inside the historic Plays & Players building is the beginning of a trip back in time.  The Hear Again Radio Project presents classic radio dramas as they were originally broadcast with live Foley sound effects and the same commercials that would have aired with the shows.   Adding a visual element, the actors also appear in period costumes and on a period set, making the whole experience one of another era.

Our Miss Brooks was a situation comedy originally aired on CBS in 1948 about the adventures of Connie Brooks, a high school English teacher.  It was immensely popular throughout its run and made the career of its leading lady, Eve Arden.  Blondie, which began in 1939, followed Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead through the comic trials and tribulations of married life.  It was based on the comic strip of the same name which began in 1930 and is still in print.

Valentine’s Va-Va-Voom is directed by frequent Hear Again director Krishna Pryia Dunston and stars Frederick Andersen, Jared Michael Delaney, Darin J Dunston, Jill Lawrence and Kristen Norine.

Plays & Players (P&P) is at once 100 years old and 3 years old, having recently changed from a community theatre to a professional theatre focused on supporting and nurturing the work of local artists through performance and development. It hired its first Producing Artistic Director, Daniel Student, in its organization’s history, and has reached a level of prominence for the growing quality of its productions as well as its ability to launch the careers of some of the city's most talented performers. One of the hottest companies in town, and winner of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best In Philly” award two years in a row, Plays & Players has become a rare place where a rich past meets an exciting present.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
