Heading to London This Fall? Here Are Five Hot New Shows to See!

first_imgSummer is slipping away, but that’s never a bad thing theatrically, especially in London where the fall brings with it an abundance of theater to make one drool. What follows are five shows scheduled between now and Christmas that look sure to set the pulse racing, listed in the order in which they are scheduled to open.NO MAN’S LANDWyndham’s TheatrePreviewing now, opens September 20In a year that will have seen several legendary British actresses return to the stage (Vanessa Redgrave in a now-finished Richard III, Glenda Jackson en route to King Lear), along come actor-knights Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to reprise the 1975 Harold Pinter play that they performed to acclaim on Broadway in 2013. Their co-stars—new to the director Sean Mathias’s staging for London—are Tony winner Owen Teale and the fast-rising Irish actor, Damien Molony. To quote Pinter’s own play: “As it is?” “As it is, yes please.”THE RED BARN National TheatrePreviews begin October 6, opens October 17A psychological thriller set in 1969 Connecticut adapted by a leading English writer David Hare from a novel (La Main) by a legendary Frenchman Georges Simenon sounds like enticement alone. Add in an uber-hot director in 2016 Olivier Award winner Robert Icke and two striking leads in 2016 Tony nominee Mark Strong and visiting American star Hope Davis, and it sounds as if Broadway is surely beckoning—even though lucky London has got there first.AMADEUSNational TheatrePreviews begin October 16, opens October 26History of a sort is made when the wonderful Lucian Msamati, seen earlier this year in the National’s overwhelming revival of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, becomes the first black actor to play the court composer Antonio Salieri in a major production of Peter Shaffer’s Tony-winning play. Adam Gillen takes the title role of Mozart in a Michael Longhurst-directed production that will undoubtedly pay tribute to Shaffer, who died in June at the age of 90.DREAMGIRLSSavoy TheatrePreviews begin November 20, opens December 14Amber Riley, best known as Mercedes Jones on Glee, crosses the pond to take on the powerhouse role of Effie White when the iconic 1981 Broadway musical has its long-overdue West End debut in November—not long after the first Effie, Jennifer Holliday, returns to Broadway in The Color Purple. Stepping into the formidable shoes of Dreamgirls’ pioneering director-choreographer Michael Bennett is none other than Casey Nicholaw, who has Aladdin and The Book of Mormon already running both sides of the Atlantic: looks, as Effie might put it, as if nothing’s gonna stop him now.SHE LOVES MEMenier Chocolate FactoryPreviews begin November 25, opens December 7That perpetual musical charmer from 1963—a hit yet again on Broadway this past season—returns to London, this time to the small but mighty Menier Chocolate Factory in a new production directed by Matthew White and starring the clarion-voiced Scarlett Strallen as the ice cream-loving Amalia. Are cartwheels in order? We shall soon find out.  View Commentslast_img read more

Lue refutes Smith in Russell’s case against JADCO

first_img SYSTEM UPDATES He admitted seeing the notification to respond to JADCO’s letter and update whereabouts, however, he thought Quinn was dealing with the situation properly. Meanwhile, Smith admitted assisting Lue with the ADAMAS system updates for Russell, but stated that he never knew she was updating at the time. Lue, however, insisted that he (Smith) knew she was updating and assisted her step by step all the way. “I knew nothing of the system, so I called and spoke with Smith and he told me I needed a password and user name. I contacted Andre, who gave me the user name and password, and I called back Tajae, who told me where to go and walked me through the process,” she said. “I said I was putting in the info, when I put in the info the page would change colour, so he would say do this … and he said all was fine after we ended,” she stated. The next hearing is scheduled for Thursday, November 17. The files and exchange of written submissions will be due on November 7 at 4 p.m., while the transcript from the typist is due on October 24. JADCO’s lawyer Lackston Robinson spent the majority of yesterday’s cross-examination of West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell trying to prove that the 28-year-old was tardy in submitting whereabouts information to the national anti-doping body. However, the cricketer said although he asked Judith Lue and then Wil Quinn to oversee his whereabout updates, he still tried to meet JADCO’s whereabout requirements, but communique from JADCO left him baffled and confused as he felt his whereabouts was being updated by a third party, as his very busy schedule and not knowing how to update information on JADCO’s ADAMAS website made it very difficult to make updates himself. Russell also argued that JADCO never extended an invitation to him for any of their educational sessions, despite his many visits to the agency. “Whether or not you had difficulty manoeuvring the ADAMAS system, did you go to JADCO to seek assistance to manoeuvre ADAMAS,” Robinson asked. Russell replied: “I’ve been a professional cricketer for seven to eight years and I have been involved in the system for four to five years, and they have never mentioned about an educational session. I always try my best to reach out to JADCO, but there was no support,” he said. “I’ve never tried to abandon the system, and that’s why I got my agent involved, but being all over playing cricket it is rough,” he stated. Russell explained that he was extremely confused about the third filing failure, as Quinn was overseeing the situation and his schedule was very hectic during that period. “I thought we were getting somewhere with JADCO. But I was surprised when I was training at Sabina that I heard some females talking about my whereabouts not being updated. So I went there (JADCO) same time and got it updated, but in the evening when I reached home I got a filing failure package at my gate,” he explained.last_img read more

Jared Goff, Rams’ electric offense shorts out in Super Bowl defeat

first_imgJust like everyone in the Rams’ locker room, Cooks took the blame on himself.“I’m great enough to make that play,” Cooks said. “I’ve still got to make it, no matter what.” Goff’s ability to execute McVay’s offensive innovations and clever play-calling put the Rams (15-4) back in the Super Bowl for the first time in 17 years. His highs have been outstanding, but his lows are frequently disheartening — and this game appeared to be among his worst.The Rams all seemed to know exactly what New England had done against them defensively. The Pats showed deceptive fronts before the snap, and they frequently retreated into zone pass defenses that forced Goff to find open receivers in a confusing coverage.Although McVay strenuously blamed his play-calling for putting his players in untenable positions, Goff realized he needed to make more consistent throws and better decisions, particularly at the line of scrimmage. His underthrown pick near the New England end zone crushed the Rams’ hopes for a tying touchdown with 4:17 to play.Goff had only nine completions in the first three quarters before getting 10 more in the fourth while the Rams’ rally fell short.“We were moving the ball well at times, but we just couldn’t get that one play,” Goff said. “We know what type of offense we have, and to not be able to show that, it’s tough.”The Rams’ first eight drives in the Super Bowl ended in punts and resulted in only 72 net yards. Johnny Hekker punted for the eighth time early in the third quarter, a record for punts in a game during McVay’s two seasons.Despite their ineptitude, the Rams’ defense was playing brilliantly. Los Angeles still could have taken the lead late in the third quarter when Brandin Cooks broke wide open on a post route, but he stood waving in the end zone while Goff saw him too late and uncorked a throw that took far too long to get there, allowing New England to knock it down.“I was surprised he was that wide-open,” Goff said. “I tried to get it to him as quickly as I could. It was too late.”Goff was in the midst of his best drive right before his interception. He hit Josh Reynolds in perfect stride for an 11-yard gain and a first down with just over five minutes left, and he found Robert Woods with another beautiful long pass on the next snap.But under pressure from blitzing Duron Harmon, Goff wound up and flung a high pass in the general direction of Cooks. The ball was underthrown, and Cooks lost a fight for the ball with Stephon Gilmore, who picked it off. New England Patriots’ Kyle Van Noy (53) sacks Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff (16) during the second half of the NFL Super Bowl 53 football game Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)ATLANTA — Jared Goff trudged to the Los Angeles Rams’ bench, his face a mask of confusion and despair while the Patriots celebrated their interception behind him.Sean McVay left the sideline and leaned into his ear. The coach didn’t say much, but he encouraged his quarterback to learn from the Rams’ offensive flop.ADVERTISEMENT Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations McVay and Goff are likely to be together for many more years, and they hope they’ll remember their embarrassing 13-3 loss in the Super Bowl on Sunday night as a springboard to the future, not the crushing flop that it felt like immediately afterward.Goff’s 19-of-38 performance for 229 yards and a key fourth-quarter interception played a large role in the Rams’ defeat, but almost nothing went right for a team that has been frequently brilliant with the ball in its hands. A remarkable year ended with a big-game performance that looked nothing like most of the past two seasons while the Rams matched the lowest-scoring performance in Super Bowl history.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesThe Rams led the NFL in points per game over the past two seasons, yet they became just the second team in NFL history to fail to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl.“It’s the toughest loss I ever had,” Goff said. “It kills. It’s terrible. It’s a game I wish I would have played better. I wish I could have a million plays back.” Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Donald Trump: NFL people thankful he signed criminal justice bill Casual football fans who hadn’t watched the Rams during the past two years would have no idea how they got to the Super Bowl after watching this tentative, inconsistent performance.All of Los Angeles’ recent success came to a weird anticlimax at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with its lowest-scoring performance in 36 games under the 33-year-old head coach.Los Angeles managed just 260 yards, got only 14 first downs — just six in the first three quarters — and punted a season-high nine times. But even putting the raw numbers aside, the Rams’ miserable execution left them looking unprepared for a stellar defensive game plan from Bill Belichick.“I’m pretty numb right now, but definitely I got outcoached,” McVay said. “I didn’t do nearly a good enough job for our football team. … This one is going to stick with you. It just stings in your gut.”Though Goff’s teammates and coaches refused to blame him, Los Angeles’ 24-year-old quarterback had one of the rougher performances in Super Bowl history. Along with his 19 incompletions, he was sacked four times and finished with a 57.9 passer rating.ADVERTISEMENT US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss LATEST STORIES ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View commentslast_img read more

Gianluca Vialli Juventus are Champions League favourites

first_imgFormer Juventus captain Gianluca Vialli rates his old side’s chances of Champions League glory strongly for this seasonThe 54-year-old captained Juventus to their last European crown in 1996 with a penalty shoot-out win over Ajax in Rome.Since then, Juventus have suffered defeat at the final stage of the Champions League five times.But Vialli believes that this season will be another story due to the star quality in the squad.“Juve are the strongest team in Europe,” Vialli told Gazzetta dello Sport. “I’m not just talking about the starters but also the squad depth.“Sometimes you look at the players they have on the bench and you’re amazed.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“The club did so well, they’ve added Cristiano Ronaldo to a structure that allowed them to win in Italy and to reach two Champions League finals in four years.“Let’s just say the team 22 years ago had the merit of winning the Champions League, but in everything else this team has superior quality, simply because they can field one of the best players in the world.“Allegri has two teams at his disposal. [Vialli’s boss Marcello] Lippi had a granite block, we were solid, tactically prepared and at the peak of our powers.“But Marcello didn’t have CR7. Now that [Zinedine] Zidane isn’t working, Allegri is better than anyone. The results say that.”Juventus top Group H with nine points from three games and will next host Manchester United in the competition next Wednesday.last_img read more
