Big River & More Slated for Encores! 2017

first_img Encores! upcoming season will begin with Roger Miller’s 1985 retelling of Mark Twain’s classic novel, Big River, on February 8, 2017, followed by Cole Porter’s The New Yorkers. The Golden Apple, John Latouche and Jerome Moross’ whimsical reinvention of Greek epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey, is set to close out the series’ 24th year.Big River nabbed a lucky seven Tony Awards the year it opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in 1985 and was most recently revived on Broadway in 2003. A musical underdog as scrappy and restless as Huckleberry Finn himself, the show was created in the age of British spectacles by a quintessentially American artist—the beloved country-western singer Roger Miller—and his score is a blend of bluegrass, gospel, and honky tonk. Just over 30 years later, this tuner remains a compelling journey through 1840s America in all its beauty and savagery. Big River will play February 8, 2017 through February 12.The New Yorkers will run from March 22, 2017 to March 26. Bullets fly and bathtub gin flows in this 1930 Prohibition jape, which is a gleefully amoral celebration of speakeasies, gangsters, society dames and the great city they love. The musical centers on featherbrained socialite Alice Miller, whose bootlegger beau leads her on a madcap romp from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again. The New Yorkers produced a number of standards—“I Happen to Like New York,” “Love for Sale”—but much of the original material has been lost, making this Encores!’s most ambitious musical reconstruction ever.The Golden Apple is scheduled for May 10, 2017 through May 14. The whimsical and toweringly ambitious 1954 musical reshapes the myths of The Iliad and The Odyssey into an all-American fable that conjures up the days when pie-baking contests were cutthroat and lovers eloped in hot air balloons. Despite its brief run of 125 performances, John Latouche and Jerome Moross’ production was hailed by critics and introduced the classic torch song “Lazy Afternoon.”Jack Viertel is the artistic director of Encores!; Rob Berman is its music director.

Cooperation

first_imgSo many schools these days have the problem of coaches who fail to share their athletes. This is not the case at Batesville. Both Eric Heppner and Aaron Garrett encourage their athletes to stay active. Both realize that athletes competing on teams are much more likely to stay in shape and do better in the classroom. The only reason I can see for an athlete to concentrate on one sport at the high school level is if they are so good at that sport that it is certain they will play it at the next level and beyond. The other reason might be if that is the only sport in which they can realistically compete. Kids at this age do not usually know what they are going to be best at, and they need to have some fun exploring other sports. I don’t understand why a football coach would not want his backs and certain defensive players getting quicker by working on sprints in track. All athletes lift weights these days, so that reason for not playing a spring sport holds no water in my opinion. We all know that kids with too much time on their hands usually find something to do–and often it is not good. Basketball players make excellent track or baseball players because of their size and coordination. A lot of coaches like their athletes to play tennis to improve foot work which is important in whatever you play. Finally, isn’t it the athlete who should decide what he would like to do at least part of the time?last_img read more

Gabon left to ponder wider worries after Cup exit

first_imgLibreville, Gabon | AFP | Sporting agony in the shape of an early elimination from their own Africa Cup of Nations has only added to the other woes facing Gabon, a country already in the midst of a political and economic crisis.“The Africa Cup of Nations is not finished. I encourage all football lovers to enjoy the quality of the remaining matches,” said president Ali Bongo in a statement released following Sunday’s 0-0 draw with central African neighbours Cameroon in Libreville.That result, Gabon’s third draw in as many matches, condemned them to a group-stage exit, something that had not befallen the hosts of the Cup of Nations since Tunisia in 1994.“It was a great derby. I would like to pay tribute to the quality of the performance of our brave Panthers. I would also like to congratulate Cameroon on qualifying for the quarter-finals,” added Bongo, who had attempted to rouse the Gabon side by visiting them at training on Saturday.A last-minute coaching change, a poor build-up and two points dropped in the dying moments of their opening game, a 1-1 draw against Guinea-Bissau, all contributed to Gabon’s poor showing.Newspaper L’Union was scathing in its criticism, saying: “Of all the teams taking part at the tournament, Gabon, the hosts, were the only ones who did not prepare. Incredible!”The Gabon squad, spearheaded by star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, got together later than planned in early January under the orders of a coach who had been hastily appointed.The veteran Spaniard Jose Antonio Camacho was brought in to replace the Portuguese Jorge Costa, sacked in November.But Camacho, who had been out of coaching since ending a stint in charge of China in 2013, does not speak French and was new to Africa.L’Union nevertheless sympathised, saying he “did his best” while laying the blame at the door of the Gabonese federation.Meanwhile, former Real Madrid player Camacho refused to be drawn on his future in the role after Sunday’s match, but meetings with the Federation, Sports Minister Nicole Assele and possibly even President Bongo will soon be scheduled. Share on: WhatsApp The Gabon team could certainly do with some stability as they approach the end of their qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup, with their next match to come at home to the Ivory Coast in August.– Turmoil –Off the field, the usually peaceful host nation has been in some turmoil ever since the violence that followed the contested reelection of Bongo last year.The 40,000-capacity Stade de l’Amitie was just about full for Gabon’s three draws against Guinea-Bissau, Burkina Faso and Cameroon, but some opponents of Bongo and an element of public opinion was not behind the Panthers.“I don’t feel like the Gabonese are unhappy after the team’s elimination. This is serious, as if the country no longer identified with the national team. For the people of Gabon, the Panthers are the team of Ali Bongo. They are happy when they lose,” Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume, a spokesman for opposition leader Jean Ping, told AFP.“This Cup of Nations has divided people,” one man, Donald, told AFPTV in Franceville, the south-eastern city that is a stronghold of the Bongo family.“There is not really any enthusiasm. But let’s not fool ourselves. We must not mix politics with sport or with football.”Others in Franceville said they would have liked to see the money used to finance the Cup of Nations spent on roads instead.Gabon’s exit from the tournament means a return to economic and social reality.Worried about a possible buyout, the 400 staff at the oil company Shell called a halt to their strike after reaching an agreement with management.Meanwhile, having remained silent since the turn of the year, the opposition led by Ping still refuse Bongo’s offer to open political dialogue, and legislative elections are set for July at the latest.last_img read more

Can Mimi Chakraborty do a Mamata of 1984 in Jadavpur

first_imgJadavpur: The prestigious Jadavpur Parliamentary constituency in Bengal has never blessed a political party for a third consecutive term. Can the Trinamool Congress buck the trend?As this question was posed to an elderly TMC worker, his mind flashed back to 1984 — when a young woman leader defeated an erudite lawyer and Communist leader. The script is somewhat similar in 2019, with addition of a new actor. The TMC is banking on 30-year-old Bengali film-star Mimi Chakraborty for a third consecutive win in Jadavpur, where party chief Mamata Banerjee, then a feisty young Congress leader, had trounced CPI(M) veteran and noted lawyer Somnath Chatterjee in 1984. And this time, TMC’s Chakraborty faces a stiff challenge from another lawyer — former Kolkata Mayor Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya of the CPI(M). The BJP, in a bid to win the seat riding on its growing popularity, has fielded Anupam Hazra, a TMC Parliamentarian in the outgoing Lok Sabha who switched sides before the election. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaTMC this time fielded Chakraborty in place of Sugata Bose, a Harvard professor who won the seat for the party in 2014. Banerjee said he has not been allowed to contest the elections this time by his university. Roadshows and meetings by the young actor-turned-politician in the constituency have drawn large crowds and the TMC leadership is claiming that the popularity of the candidate will be reflected in the results. They are asserting that she will win by a bigger margin than her renowned predecessor from the family of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, who won by a little over 1.25 lakh votes. TMC had won the seat in 2009 too, when singer and poet Kabir Suman was its candidate. The TMC leadership is confident that the formidable election machinery of the party will work cohesively to ensure a resounding win for their candidate. Jadavpur spreads across south-eastern parts of Kolkata as also semi-urban areas in the vicinity and rural areas of Bhangar and Baruipur. With agency inputslast_img read more
