julieg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Three years ago when The Apollo Civic Theatre presented the musical "Two From Galilee," it sold out its last two performances, says Catherine Fronck, musical director. Many of the cast members have returned for this year's production. "Two From Galilee" tells the love story between Mary and Joseph and how they fought the Jewish tradition of arranged marriage to be together, Fronck says. The musical includes Joseph's struggle to accept God's plan for Mary to give birth to the Messiah.

"Across the Universe" is a musical set in the 1960s, featuring a love story told with more than 30 Beatles and set against the background of youth revolution, drug experimentation, the Vietnam War and anti-war protests. Jude, Max, Sadie, JoJo, Prudence and Lucy come together from different walks of life to live in a rundown New York City apartment. Each deals with life in their own way, occasionally causing disputes. There is the obvious love story, distress caused by growing up, dealing with people and the war. The disillusionment, the escapist attitude, the drugs, the violence of the time - these are portrayed through expressive film making.

Review Imagine you've found the love of your life and can't be without him. You are perfectly happy except for one thing that will eventually shatter your romance: He is immortal and you're not. How can you change this? Well, if your true love happens to be a vampire with the power to make you immortal, you could change it. Welcome to Bella Swan's life. "New Moon," by Stephenie Meyer, continues the twisted love story of Bella Swan, a normal 17-year-old, and Edward Cullen, a vampire, that was set up in "Twilight," the first book in this trilogy.

It's a tale as old as time. And that's just one reason why those involved with the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts' production of Disney's “Beauty and Beast” said the story has stood the test of time. Opening Friday night, BISFA will stage the musical for two weekends at The Maryland Theatre. Julia Thompson and Travis Thorpe, both 17-year-old seniors, play the show's leads, Belle and the Beast, respectively. The actors said the theme of “Beauty and the Beast” - that everyone wants to be loved and accepted - is one reason why the story of a girl who falls in love with an unappealing man still resonates with audiences today, nearly 20 years after the debut of Disney's full-length animated film.

Movie review: "Across the Universe" "Across the Universe" is about more than just the Vietnam War, more than just anti-war protests and the hippie revolution, more than just the Beatles (though a ton of Beatles songs are incorporated into the movie). "Across the Universe" is about love, despair and sacrifice. It's the story of six people who meet in New York and live in one apartment, but they all have very different lives. You watch as each person's life unfolds and they all reach for what they think is creative, righteous and just.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Just like the more well-known tale of "Romeo and Juliet," the love story of Orfeo and Euridice ends in tragedy, except for tonight and tomorrow at Shepherd University. The university's Music Department is presenting a version with a rare happy ending about the two lovers, director Joe Yates said. The couple usually is referred to by their Greek names, Orpheus and Eurydice. In the typical tale, Orfeo mourns his love and travels to the underworld to try to rescue her. After initially refusing Orpheus' request, the Furies are moved by Orfeo's singing and allow Euridice to return to the land of living with Orfeo.

You can't always judge a book by its author. But if that book is written by Alyson Richman, there's a good chance the storyline will be woven around art. She has told the tale of a young Japanese man who studied with the Impressionists in Paris, has explored the complexities of Vincent Van Gogh and focused on the resilience of the human spirit in a best-selling love story about a painter who survived the Holocaust. That she uses art as a theme isn't surprising, once you know Richman's background.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said Tuesday that he "crossed lines" with a handful of women other than his mistress -- but never had sex with them. The governor said he "never crossed the ultimate line" with anyone but Maria Belen Chapur, the Argentine at the center of a scandal that has derailed his once-promising political career. "This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story," Sanford said. "A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day. " During an emotional interview at his Statehouse office with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sanford said Chapur is his soul mate but he's trying to fall back in love with his wife.
