    For sustained dramatic intrigue and sophistication of plot, William Shakespeare's sonnets are at least the equal of his greatest plays. Throughout the centuries since their first publication in 1609, critics, psychologists and curiosity-seekers alike have pondered the nature of the poet's relationships with the mysterious young man, "Mr. W.H.", and the "ill-coloured" Dark lady.

    Dava Sobel's thoughtful play brings to life the story of Nicolaus Copernicus, the Renaissance astronomer and mathematician who proposed the heliocentric model of the universe in which the Sun stands at the center. Plagued by self-doubt and threatened by religious censure, Copernicus resisted the publication of his work until just before his death in 1543. And the Sun Stood Still follows Copernicus in those final years as he works to complete his research with the help of Georg Rheticus, a young disciple from Wittenberg, Germany.

    Terrorists are holding America under siege, and their method is as ingenious as it is deadly. Using commercial aircraft purchased from a failing domestic airline, they drop bombs on unsuspecting and critical targets - including the busy airports of Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth. When the nation begins to panic, the President orders Lieutenant General Robert Blocker to reestablish security in the skies before the fallout hits the White House. Blocker's response to the crisis is drastic - until the terrorists strike again in Denver, then Memphis.
