More Broadway Theaters to Dim the Lights for Joan Rivers

first_img “Under our criteria,” Broadway League executive director Charlotte St. Martin previously told The New York Times, “People need to have been very active recently in the theater, or else be synonymous with Broadway.” She added, “We love Joan…but she hasn’t acted on Broadway in 20 years. When you say Joan Rivers, you don’t think comedy, television and Broadway. You think comedy and television.” The statement fueled an outpouring of fan support, including an online petition and the Twitter hashtag #dim4joan. Broadway.com has contacted the Broadway League for comment, but a spokesperson could not be reached. Updated at 12.45PM. Broadway.com has confirmed that the New Amsterdam, Helen Hayes, Studio 54 and Stephen Sondheim theaters will now dim their marquee lights at 6:45PM on September 9 to honor the late Joan Rivers, along with the previously reported five Jujamcyn houses. The move comes after an online backlash on September 8 when the Broadway League announced that Main Stem theaters would not dim their lights for the comedy icon, Tony nominee and longtime Broadway cheerleader. View Comments The New Amsterdam Theatre, where Aladdin plays, is owned by Disney, while the Helen Hayes Theatre hosts Rock of Ages. Rivers received her Tony nod for her appearance in Sally Marr…and her escorts, which played at the Helen Hayes. Roundabout owns Studio 54 and the Stephen Sondheim, where Cabaret and Beautiful are playing respectively; its American Airlines Theatre is currently dark.last_img read more

Women of Troy prepare to take on Arizona schools

first_imgAfter this week’s games at Arizona State and Arizona, the USC women’s basketball team could comfortably find itself in third place in the Pac-10, two games ahead of its closest competitors, with two games left in the regular season.“Both games are very important,” said junior guard Ashley Corral. “This is a must-win road trip.”The Women of Troy begin their road trip tonight against Arizona State. The two teams are currently tied for third place in the Pac-10 with 8-6 conference records.If the Women of Troy continue their recent streak of hot shooting, they have a good chance of sweeping their opponents.In last week’s game against California, the Women of Troy put on an offensive show.They scored a season-high 50 points in the first half en route to an 80-67 win.Two days earlier, USC hung around with No. 3 Stanford for most of the game, eventually falling behind late in a 78-64 loss that was closer than the score indicated.“We came out shooting well both games,” Corral said. “Everybody’s finding their shot, finding their rhythm.”Corral registered a career high, drilling seven three-pointers against Cal.Sophomore guard Stefanie Gilbreath converted all four of her three-point attempts against Stanford, chipping in a total of 16 points.That marked the first double-digit point total in Gilbreath’s USC career, which has been plagued by a variety of injuries.According to senior center Kari LaPlante, who scored a season-high 15 points against Cal, Corral and Gilbreath have been key to USC’s offensive revival.“It definitely helps us offensively … for Stefanie to get back in and do so well, and for [Corral] to find her stroke,” LaPlante said. “It’s exciting for the team and it relieves pressure from the post.”The Sun Devils won the first meeting 62-61 in a game that marked the first home loss for the Women of Troy.“We just came out very slow against [Arizona State] at home,” Corral said. “Their [defensive] pressure got to us. This time we have to focus on playing with poise, running through [their pressure] and getting to our offense.”Senior guard Dymond Simon is the only Sun Devil to average double-digit points with 14.2 per game and also leads Arizona State with 2.7 assists per game.The team currently owns a record of 16-9, and has four more games in the regular season, plus the Pac-10 tournament, to reach 20, the magic number.Throughout the season, USC coach Michael Cooper has said that 20 wins will probably get the Women of Troy a bid to the NCAA tournament.“We know our ultimate goal [of making the tournament], and we want that really, really bad,” said senior guard Jacki Gemelos.last_img read more

FIFA probes Uganda FA chief Magogo over illegal ticket sales

first_imgSources told AFP on Monday that Swiss prosecutor Cornel Borbely, who was chairman of the ethics committee’s investigatory chamber before being removed last month, had opened an investigation into suggestions Infantino might have sought to influence the election of Madagascar’s Ahmad Ahmad as president of CAF in March.The investigation stemmed from evidence provided by African representatives, a source close to FIFA said.Several African witnesses had been set to travel to FIFA headquarters in the Swiss city of Zurich but at least one of them had their summons cancelled after Borbely was removed from his post, the same source said.British newspaper The Guardian reported on Sunday that Infantino was being investigated for claims he had promised, along with FIFA general secretary Fatma Samoura, to accelerate payments of development money to national football associations if the presidents voted for Ahmad.FIFA announced their decision to remove Borbely and Germany’s Hans-Joachim Eckert from their posts in the ethics team during the organisation’s congress in Bahrain last month.Borbely said the decision was “a setback in the fight against corruption” as there were “several hundred cases” of corruption pending.RELATED STORY Share on: WhatsApp Uganda’s Magogo with Infantino at a Doha meeting early this year. PHOTO FUFA MEDIAKampala, Uganda | AFP |  The head of Uganda’s football association Moses Magogo said Tuesday he was under investigation by FIFA over his alleged involvement in the illegal sale of 2014 World Cup tickets.According to a letter sent from FIFA to Magogo that was seen by AFP, the football chief is accused of selling the complementary tickets allocated to Uganda.“We got the communication from FIFA on the allegations raised and my legal team is handling the matter,” Magogo told AFP, confirming he was under investigation.The probe comes after Ugandan lawmaker Allan Ssweanyana — who also co-owns a local football club — petitioned FIFA in May, accusing Magogo of selling all 177 tickets allocated to Uganda to an agent in the United States.FIFA allocates tickets to all national associations to ensure that all fans worldwide can be able to access them at affordable prices.Magogo, who has been in office for five years, is set to have his term extended after the football governing body Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) on Tuesday disqualified his lone challenger, ex-international Mujib Kasule, for his post in the August 5 elections.Magogo has recently been elected to several Confederation of African Football committees after playing a key role mobilising regional support for the elecion of FIFA president Infantino last year, and also for the new CAF president Ahmad Ahmad early this year.Prior to the CAF elections, Infantino visited several African countries including Uganda.Legislator Ssewanyana (middle) has brought the charges against MagogoNo investigation’ opened into Infantino over CAF, says FIFALausanne, Switzerland | AFP | Football’s world governing body FIFA assured Tuesday that “no investigation” had been opened into president Gianni Infantino after sources said his role in the Confederation of African Football’s presidential elections was being looked into.Maria Claudia Rojas, the new president of the investigatory chamber of FIFA’s ethics committee, “has confirmed that all files have been handed over to her and that there are no open preliminary or investigation proceedings involving the FIFA President”, the organisation said in a statement.“It is in FIFA’s interest that the work of the ethics committee is not disrupted by conjecture of any kind,” the statement added.“Therefore, FIFA will refrain from commenting any further on baseless speculation and will instead concentrate on providing concrete information.”last_img read more

England girls score Ôconvincing’ win over Switzerland

first_img19 Aug 2014 England girls score Ôconvincing’ win over Switzerland England’s girls scored a convincing 7-2 win over Switzerland in their U16 international at Heswall Golf Club in Cheshire. They played in difficult conditions of blustery winds and some rain which, coupled with the fast greens, set a tough challenge. But they coped well, particularly in the afternoon singles. England coach Scott Godfrey commented: “For some of the girls this was the first time they’d played at this level and they enjoyed it, got on well as a team and produced a good result. It was a convincing win.” The team led 2-1 after the morning foursomes, thanks to a turnaround in fortunes by Mollie Lawrence of Kent and Amelia Williamson of Norfolk. They were four down with eight to play but won on the last to give England the advantage. “We were looking at going into lunch down but they played the back nine very, very well and gave us a lead,” said Scott. Natasha Slater went out first in the singles and kept the momentum going. The new Scottish U14 champion from Cumbria had a handful of birdies in the front nine and led by three at the turn, before winning 4/3. “She got us off to a great start,” said Scott. English U15 champion Emily Price (image © Leaderboard Photography) soon followed her in to the winner’s circle with a 7/6 success – despite losing the first hole! The Warwickshire player was under par for her match, producing an outstanding performance for the team. Solid play brought wins for Amelia Williamson and Martha Lewis of Surrey. Meanwhile, Lancashire’s Louisa Brunt was trailing by one hole with four to play, but fashioned a strong finish, helped by a couple of birdies, to win on the last.

McClain Leads Seraphs to Indoor Track Title

first_imgBy Tim MorrisMater Dei Prep boys track head coach Mike Tursi knew that the versatility of Isaiah McClain would come in handy this indoor track and field season.The senior, who excels as a sprinter, long and high jumper who also picked up the hurdles this winter, gave the Seraphs an invaluable multi-event scorer, Tursi pointed out.“Isaiah brings a lot to the table,” the head coach remarked. “He does a lot for us.“He’s willing to do what it takes for the team,” Tursi added. “He buys into the team concept.”McClain proved his worth competing in four events at the NJSIAA State Relays on Jan. 19 at the John Bennett Indoor Sports Complex in Toms River, leading the Seraphs to the Non-Public B state title. The Seraphs scored 56 points in delivering Mater Dei’s first-ever state relay championship.“It was a total team effort,” said Tursi.The Seraphs used just 10 competitors and all scored points, Tursi noted. Several competed in multiple relays led by McClain, who contested four events.“He (McClain) came through for us,” said Tursi.McClain ran on the winning 4×55-meter shuttle hurdles relay and was part of the sprint medley team that was second, the 4×200 squad that took third and the high jump relay that finished fourth.“I was exhausted but at the end of the day, it (championship) feels great,” said McClain. “That was the goal.”Of all the relays, McClain enjoyed the shuttle hurdles the most. He took up hurdles this year to help out the team.“Anything the coach needs I’ll do,” he said. “It (hurdling) has been great. I only had a couple of practices before the relays.”Griffin Cole, Patrick Mastro and Patrick Osborn completed the relay team that won by almost two seconds in 34.24.The runner-up sprint medley relay line-up was Griffin Cole, Sincere Saunders, McClain and John Spinelli. They clocked 3:54.80.In the 4×200 it was Mastro, McClain, Griffin and Saunders finishing third in 1:40.41.McClain cleared 5-10 in the high jump and Mastro did 5-0 to finish fourth.Mater Dei won two relays in addition to the hurdles en route to the state championship.Osborn, who displayed his versatility as well in Toms River, joined with Jake Roberts, Joseph Ramos and state Non-Public B cross country champion Spinelli to win the 4×800 (8:42.28).Mater Dei got 10 big points in the field where Joe Cerrato (38-1 ¼) and Pat Gorman (37-4 ½) teamed up to win the shot put relay.The Seraphs also picked up a second place in the 4×400 (3:40.87) with the busy Osborn, Ramos, Roberts and Saunders.McClain said he recalls watching track and field meets on television and being drawn to the sport before he came to Mater Dei. Once there, he wanted to try everything.“I like doing all the events,” he explained. “I’m looking into doing a decathlon.”The jump events stand out as his favorite. McClain said in those races a big personal best “can come out of nowhere.” When McClain first started jumping, he couldn’t clear 5-0 in the high jump yet not he’s up to 6-0. In the long jump he has surpassed 20-feet (20-9).“When you are floating in the air it feels like nothing else,” he said.McClain, who is 5-10 and 165 pounds, was a three-year starter at outside linebacker for the Mater Dei football team that made the state playoffs each year and made the state finals his final two seasons.“It was great to be a part of a program that was developing history,” he said.McClain loves the physicality of football and remarked he’d like to play both sports in college.“I love both sports,” McClain said. “Running is a different passion, it’s one-on-one and in football you work as a unit.”The next goal for McClain and the Seraphs is to win the Non-Public B state title on Feb. 17. From the results at the relays, Mater Dei certainly is, at the very least, a serious contender.McClain is looking to set personal bests in all of his events and he hopes to find a long jump competition so that he can qualify for the Eastern States Championships.RFH Girls, CBA Boys WinRumson-Fair Haven’s girls and Christian Brothers Academy also picked up state championships at the relays.RFH won the Group 2 state relay crown by scoring in every track event for a winning total of 35 points.RFH head coach Tim McLoone credits the addition of lacrosse players, competing in indoor track to help them get ready for their spring season, with transforming the Bulldogs’ program.  Known as a distance running power, the addition of a stable of talented sprinters and hurdlers have made the team more balanced and dangerous when it comes to putting together relay teams. It’s been a win-win for the lacrosse players and the track and field team.Rumson’s lone victory at the Jan. 20 meet was in the Sprint Medley where Julia Tambaro, Martlee Dotts, Kaitlyn MacGillis and Grace Jamin were victorious in 4:18.24.The other teams scoring were: the 4×200 of Nikki DeVito, Campbell Devlin, Lily Orr and Maddie Orr, fourth place (1:48.86); 4×400 with MacGillis, Caroline Coleman, Devlin and Lily Orr, second place (4:08.51); 4×800 with Olivia Rehder, Mia James, Tambaro and MacGillis, fourth place (10:04.46); distance medley of Eva Farr, James,  Tambara and Carolyn Trent, sixth place (13:07.32); and the shuttle hurdles team of Alina Arko, Devlin, Jamin and Olivia Turi, second place (33.90).CBA put their depth on full display scoring in every single event and rolling up 72 points at the Jan. 18 championships.  Even though they had just one win in the distance medley, their ability to score points everywhere helped them hold off Union Catholic, which tallied 66 points.Tim McInerney, Luke Reid, Brian Hill and Troy Hill combined to the DMR in 10:38.16.CBA sprinters were third in the 4×200 with Ethan Arce, Andrew Canale, Rafael Coppola and Nathaniel Giallanza in 1:32.86 and second in the 4×400 with Nick Hanlon, Coppola, Kyle Foltz and Liam O’Hara in 3:31.26.Stepping up in distance, the 4×800 team of Tanner Crochet, Brian Hill, Troy Hill and William Huntley placed second (8:20.04).Arce, Canale, Hanlon and McInerney were second in the sprint medley (3:36.65).Hurdlers Kyle Foltz, O’Hara, Lars Enstrom and Miles Enstrom were second in 32.06.In the field, Corey Palazzo was first in the high jump clearing 6-0. Teammate Charles Ciraolo jumped 5-6 and the Colts were fourth overall.Ryan Bragg (11-0) and Lars Enstrom (10-0) were fourth in the pole vault while throwers Dan Mead (50-4 ½) and Nicholas Morse (50-3) were second in the shot put  relay.Shore titles to RBC and CBABack at the Bennett Center on Jan. 26, Red Bank Catholic’s girls and CBA added the Shore Conference team titles to their Monmouth County crowns from earlier in the month.The Caseys edged Southern, 31-29, while CBA was untested piling up 53.5 points.Individual champions for the girls included: RFH’s Lily Orr, 400-meter dash (57.81); Holmdel’s Emily Levonas, 3,200 meters (11:10.39); Middletown North’s Katelyn Reid, 55 meter hurdles (8.65); Colts Neck’s Brianna Longo, high jump (5-2); and RFH’s 4×400 relay squad of Tambaro, MacGillis, Lily Orr and Devlin (4:02.98).The boys individual winners were: CBA’s Canale, 400-meter dash (51.37); Shore’s Drew Maher, 1,600 meters (4:16.81); Middletown North’s Mark Anselmi, high jump (6-6); RFH’s Dekker Buckley, pole vault (13-6); and Middletown North’s 4×400 relay team of Joseph Guerrieri, Anthony Sclafani, Frankie Marrone and Raphael Goos (3:31.53).This article was first published in the Feb. 1-8, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

(Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) braxton miller urban meyer 2012 ohio state spring gameTwitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more
