Othello, Starring David Oyelowo & Daniel Craig, Considers Broadway Transfer

first_img View Comments If you’re unable to catch Daniel Craig and David Oyelowo in Othello at New York Theatre Workshop, don’t be too consumed by jealousy. The downtown production, directed by Tony winner Sam Gold, could make its way to Broadway. According to the New York Post, James Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli is behind the potential transfer, which could happen as early as this spring.Last year, Craig revealed he was done with the Great White Way, saying, “I’ve done Broadway and I was happy with that, but I don’t want to do Broadway anymore.” However, it seems a juicy role like Iago, a co-star like Oyelowo in the title role and a plethora of raves could be enough to change his tune.The three-quarter thrust staging presents the story in the contemporary setting of the barracks in an army camp. There’s camo; there’s modern technology; there’s a celebratory performance of “Hotline Bling.”In addition to Oyelowo and Craig, the NYTW production features Finn Wittrock (slated to appear on Broadway this spring in the Gold-helmed The Glass Menagerie), David Wilson Barnes, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Rachel Brosnahan, Blake DeLong, Glenn Fitzgerald, Slate Holmgren, Anthony Michael Lopez, Matthew Maher, Nikki Massoud and Kyle Vincent Terry. The production is scheduled to run through January 18, 2017. David Oyelowo & Daniel Craig in ‘Othello'(Photo: Chad Batka)last_img read more

Rio de Janeiro beaches open for exercise not sunbathing, experts still worried

first_imgCity Hall has laid out various public health criteria to try and ensure a safe return to business, such as limiting capacity and requiring people book spots in advance, but medical experts still fear the move may have come too soon.”The opening was hasty. We are seeing a drop in deaths, but it doesn’t mean that at the first sign of a fall it is safe open,” said Américo Cunha, a professor at Rio’s state university UERJ who has monitored the outbreak.”I can categorically say that the contagion is already rising because of this opening,” he added.Rio, he explained, still has an elevated number of daily deaths showing the virus remained highly active.From Sunday until Wednesday, Rio registered 252 deaths due to COVID-19 according to the Ministry of Health. Topics : In Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, residents could once again run along the beaches and drink a chilled coconut water at the kiosks that line the sand, as Brazil’s second city tried to return to some normality despite a heavy coronavirus death toll.Cariocas, as Rio’s inhabitants are known, went to bars, restaurants and gyms that are now allowed to operate again in the latest stage of reopening that had some experts worried about a new wave of infections. The beaches remained closed for sunbathing, but opened for individual exercise.”It is a relief and provides hope that things can get better,” said Flavio Vicente, 38, as he worked out on Copacabana Beach. Brazil has the world’s second largest outbreak behind the United States, with the country’s death toll passing 60,000 on Wednesday.In Rio alone, 6,618 people have died of COVID-19 in the past four months. Only 14 countries in the world have a death toll higher than the city. Public hospitals are at 70% capacity.At a restaurant in Copacabana, Fernando Melo said he was relieved to be back at work.”They were difficult days at home, without doing anything, without money,” he said. “We are returning slowly with the hope of better days in this new normal.”last_img read more

For better, for worse, in sickness and in health…..

first_imgAfter 69 years, Neville Putt won’t give up on loveStuff co.nz 8 January 2016On January 11 Neville and Phyllis Putt celebrate their 69th wedding anniversary.Over the sound of a steel guitar, Neville and Phyllis Putt fell in love.Now, the meaning behind the sound only registers with one of them.“It’s all through the music really, that we got together,” Neville explained.“We were in an orchestra together, and it all grew from there. We seemed to click together.”The sounds don’t resonate with Phyllis anymore though, as 13 years ago she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.Around five years ago the suggestion was made that Neville should put Phyllis, now 87, into a care facility. Staying true to his wedding vow of “in sickness and in health,” he refused.“I didn’t want to put her into a home. We’ve always been together and I didn’t want to part with her. In the early stages you can pamper them and look after them. You don’t want to throw them away like an old slipper,” Neville said.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/75731014/after-69-years-neville-putt-wont-give-up-on-love.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Lampard makes New York move

first_img The 36-year-old left Chelsea at the end of last season after 13 seasons and a club record 211 goals. The midfielder becomes New York City FC’s fourth player and second major summer signing following the arrival of David Villa from Atletico Madrid. Frank Lampard has signed for New York City FC, the Major League Soccer franchise have announced. Lampard, who has signed a two-year deal with his new club, made 649 appearances for Chelsea since signing from West Ham in 2001. He has played 106 times for England, scoring 29 goals. He signed a one-year contract extension with the Blues in May 2013 after mulling over a move to Los Angeles Galaxy, who he will now play in opposition from next spring. New York City FC sporting director Claudio Reyna said Lampard was “one of the greatest players over the last 15 years” and “ticked all the boxes” in terms of a signing. The move appealed to Lampard, too. Lampard said at a media conference in New York, streamed live on nycfc.com: “Why not chose New York City? For me talking about it ticking all the boxes, personally for me it does exactly the same. “It’s a very exciting challenge for me in life terms. “I’ve seen a real long-term plan and I wanted to be part of that. I want to test myself, I want to carry on challenging myself. “It was a good time for myself and Chelsea that I moved on.” Lampard did not speak to former England team-mate and ex-LA Galaxy captain David Beckham about MLS. “I know David pretty well, but we’re not on every day speaking terms,” Lampard added. “I’ve spoken to him about his experiences in the MLS (but) the decision was all mine. “There’s a lot of new challenges here, but I’m coming to a great city and I wanted to show people that I can play good football.” Lampard is still to determine what the immediate future holds, given the season begins in 2015. He added: “I’m going to keep fit, that’s the main thing. How I do that is not clear yet. “I’m going to sit round with people at the club and sort that out.” Lampard was in England’s 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil but is still to decide on his international future, prioritising his club future. “In terms of England, I’ve had a bit of time after the World Cup which was obviously a huge disappointment,” he added. “I now need to think about England and think about what I want to do next. “Now I know where I’ll be playing my football next year I can make that decision.” Press Associationlast_img read more
