From the Publisher

Barbara is a major in the Salvation Army - but she’s also the daughter of Andrew Undershaft, a man who’s made millions from the sale of weapons of war. The real battle, however, rages between between the devilish father and his idealistic daughter as they answer the question: does salvation come through faith or finance? This sparkling comedy traverses family relations, religion, ethics and politics - as only Shaw, the master dramatist, can!

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring J.B. Blanc, Kate Burton, Matthew Gaydos, Brian George, Hamish Linklater, Henri Lubatti, Kirsten Potter, Roger Rees, Russell Soder, Amelia White, Missy Yager and Sarah Zimmerman.

    Religious or Not, Terrorists Inspired by ISIS Raise the Group’s Profile and Power

    THE PATTERN IS TRAGICALLY FAMILIAR: A TROUBLED person with a criminal past attacks in the name of ISIS. San Bernardino, Calif.; Orlando; and perhaps now Nice, France. They are not ISIS, exactly, but ISIS-ish—men and women who have no organizational ties to ISIS yet murder in its name. What are we to make of irreligious criminals or social misfits who suddenly take up the ISIS banner and pledge themselves to the religious crusade of its so-called caliph?

    Women’s ‘Empowerment’ Is Not Real Power

    THE WORD EMPOWERMENT HAS BECOME the rallying cry of mainstream feminism, with virtually any act performed enthusiastically by a woman—from washing her hair to posting her bikini photos—now designated as “empowering.” But while everyone from Unilever to the Republican Party has embraced the background noise of “empowerment,” this frenzy has done almost nothing to change our society’s structures or understanding of authority. Women are still drastically underrepresented anywhere that genuine power resides in the U.S., especially in business and politics. And save for Hillary Clinton’s nominatio
