Stage Adaptation of Freaky Friday to Bow at Signature Theatre, VA

first_imgWe’re totally freaking out right now! After receiving a developmental lab last year, Freaky Friday is officially heading to the stage thanks to those folks over at Disney Theatrical Productions (Aladdin, The Lion King)! Directed by Christopher Ashley, with choreography by Sergio Trujillo, the musical comedy will feature a book by Bridget Carpenter, and a score by the Tony-winning Next to Normal team Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey. The production is scheduled to play a limited engagement October 4 through November 13 at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA.When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding. Freaky Friday, based on the novel by Mary Rodgers and hit 1976 and 2003 Disney films, is a contemporary update of an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience first-hand each other’s lives, if only for a day.No word yet on casting, but since Idina Menzel headlined Kitt and Yorkey’s last Main Stem show, If/Then, we’re already crossing fingers and toes that the Broadway supernova will be heading back to the boards sooner rather than later…Following Freaky Friday’s premiere at Signature, the show will be available for licensing to theaters via Music Theatre International.

Trade group says global wind capacity climbed to 591GW in 2018

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享CNBC:The wind energy industry installed 51.3 gigawatts (GW) of new capacity last year, a 3.6 percent fall when compared to 2017’s growth, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said Tuesday.Despite this reduction, the international trade association said that the growth of the worldwide wind market had “been stable” since 2014, with more than 50 GW of new capacity installed each year.Total installed capacity stood at 591 GW at the end of 2018, which represents an increase of 9.6 percent compared to the end of 2017, the GWEC added. Installed capacity relates to how much energy can be produced at maximum output, not what is currently being generated.GWEC CEO Ben Backwell said that China had led “both onshore and offshore growth,” adding that “huge growth” was expected in Asia “through the coming decade and beyond.” Breaking the figures down, the onshore sector was responsible for 46.8 GW of new capacity in 2018, while the offshore wind market added 4.49 GW.Looking ahead, the GWEC’s Director of Market Intelligence Karin Ohlenforst said that the organization expected “55 GW or more to be added each year until 2023,” adding that the offshore marked would “grow on a global scale.”More: China leads the way as wind energy sees another year of stable growth Trade group says global wind capacity climbed to 591GW in 2018last_img read more

Colombia goes into lockdown, Chile extends schools closures

first_imgMexicoBBVA, the largest bank in Mexico, has predicted that the coronavirus outbreak will cause the economy to contract by 4.5 percent in 2020.The Spanish bank said Mexican exports would be hard hit by a reduction in demand from the United States, its largest trading partner, if virus containment measures continue.BBVA also said remittances sent to family members in Mexico could be hit by rising unemployment in the United States.Other banks, such as Barclays and Credit Suisse, predicted the economy would shrink by 2-4 percent. Panama Panama will allow the cruise ship Zaandam — operated by the Holland America cruise line — to sail through its canal even though there are 42 people aboard the ship with flu-like symptoms, Health Minister Rosario Turner said Wednesday.The ship, with 1,800 passengers aboard, set sail on March 7 from Buenos Aires, with the destination of San Antonio, on the central coast of Chile.But the ship had to alter its plans when ports along the way stopped it from docking due to the coronavirus crisis.Every ship that reaches Panama must present a list of sick people, “and if we suspect there are people with respiratory problems, they cannot land,” Turner said.The Zaandam is set to cross the 80-kilometer inter-oceanic canal on Thursday and meet up on the Caribbean side with another cruise ship, the Rotterdam, which is to deliver supplies and kits to test for the COVID-19 virus.Its aim is to reach Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 30, the cruise line said.There have been 558 cases of the new coronavirus in Panama, including eight deaths. More police and soldiers have been deployed to enforce the measures, Anez said.There are narrow exceptions to who can cross the border and times at which people can be outside, Anez said. ColombiaA three-week total lockdown began just after midnight Tuesday.”Stay at home, prevent the virus from spreading and save lives,” said President Ivan Duque.Colombia, population 48 million, will be locked up until April 12.Nearly 500 cases of the deadly virus have been reported in Colombia.The capital city Bogota had already been on lockdown on orders from the mayor since Sunday. Countries across Latin America tightened measures on Wednesday to halt the spread of the deadly novel coronavirus, with more lockdowns, border closings and school closures as well as increased aid to the region’s poorest.As cases of COVID-19 cases continue to rise — more than 7,400 and 123 deaths up to now — Bolivia and Colombia became the latest countries to impose a total lockdown, while Chile extended its schools closures until the end of April.Here are the latest measures taken in several Latin American countries: BoliviaBolivia is closing its borders and ordering a strict lockdown until April 15 starting at midnight Wednesday, President Jeanine Anez said, as she declared a state of “sanitary emergency.”The measures are designed to add teeth to a lockdown that was ordered on Sunday but has largely been ignored. Chile Some 1.3 million residents of Santiago — including those of the Chilean capital’s most affluent neighborhoods — will be on lockdown for least a week starting at 0100 GMT Thursday, officials said.This followed orders extending school closures until May. Classes were suspended on March 16, just under two weeks after the first novel coronavirus case was recorded.The lockdown areas “concentrate the greatest number of cases, and the movement of people can generate more contagions,” said Health Minister Jaime Manalich.”This means that people will have to stay at home,” he emphasized.Chile has more than 1,100 recorded infections and three deaths from the virus. Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro has warned of possible “chaos” and the “looting” of supermarkets if state shutdowns ordered by the governors of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro aren’t ended.Bolsonaro, who has repeatedly scoffed at the severity of the deadly pandemic, had previously criticized the closing of schools and businesses in Sao Paulo and Rio states, two of the country’s most populous states.”Companies aren’t producing anything. They can’t pay their employees. And if the economy collapses, there won’t be any way to pay public officials. We are facing chaos,” Bolsonaro said.If that happened and supermarkets were looted, he said, “we’ll have chaos plus the virus.” Honduras Soldiers have begun distributing food to locked-down residents of the poorest neighborhoods of the capital Tegucigalpa.President Juan Orlando Hernandez said 800,000 poor families — 3.2 million people — would receive food to ensure they stayed indoors.Honduras has recorded 36 COVID-19 cases so far. Uruguay Dueling demos: labor activists and their supporters banged of pots and pans from balconies late Wednesday demanding measures that would protect workers during the coronavirus crisis — only to be met by government supporters singing the national anthem at the exact same time.There are 217 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Uruguay.

Speaking about Williams’ selection, Lions head coach Warren Gatland said: “We said we needed him for one game. He is already on his way here.

He then featured for the Barbarians against Wales in 2012, having signed off for the Ospreys with two tries in the RaboDirect PRO12 final against Leinster a week earlier. He is now in his second season in Japan, and he is due to work with talkSPORT on the Lions Test series.
