A Review of Three Ways to Love by Kimberly Posey Latimore

This novel is about three friends who met in high school but after graduating from college they went their separate ways until some unexpected news brought them back together. Kendall Porter, Rachel Donovan and Sasha Fairbanks are all trying to find their way in the professional world while maneuvering the game of love.

Kendall was caught up with Colton, a quintessential womanizer who wanted Kendall back into his life. Rachel was in search of the perfect job and trying to figure if Preston was the man for her. Sasha was a party girl who couldn’t seem to settle down. All three enjoy a great sisterhood of partying, making time to laugh and being there for each other. But they were tested once illness and other health scares placed them in a situation of mistrust. I enjoyed the story and the scenes with all three friends. The dialogue was realistic; however, the characters could have been a bit more developed. Also, there were plotlines that didn’t come full circle and I wanted to see clo…

A Review of the Play, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof at Baltimore Center Stage

Back in September, Baltimore Center Stage opened its new season (2018/19) with a bang with the premiere of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. This Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams still sizzled even after 63 years. This time it was directed by Judith Ivey and the set was designed by Adam Koch who captured the setting of a Southern (Mississippi) plantation with precision and charm.

Their chemistry on stage was hot despite Brick’s dismissal of his wife’s attempt at getting his attention. My other favorites were David Schramm who played the larger than life character – Big …
