This performance differs from the 2000 performance not only in the fact that it will utilize never-before-seen lighting effects, but also in the stronger feminist message it conveys.“It’s definitely going to be a new production based on the way that our director is taking it,” Bartolini said.Though the storyline and songs from the musical are well known, Squeri was not exactly devoted to the musical’s sometimes controversial message, which she said was originally intended as a satire. Squeri said instead she opted for alterations to the show that will give the audience an opportunity to think about something deeper.“At the end, Sandy isn’t changing for him, she’s changing for her … she’s coming more into her own, being more comfortable with her own self, her own person and her own sexuality. We are trying to show that the Pink Ladies encourage her to be who she wants to be by the end, and it just so happens that being more confident in herself makes [Danny] more attracted to her,” Squeri said.Sophomore Mario Simone, who plays Danny, said the role was difficult to prepare for due to the new direction of the show.“We basically created a new character for Danny, where he’s not as interested in Sandy as an object and more in her as a confident new person,” he said.In addition to thematic changes, some of the songs may sound unfamiliar to audience members, as they are in the original musical, but not the 1978 movie version.“People are going to hear music that’s probably new to them … people will be entertained by the classics but get some new stuff as well,” Bartolini said. “It’s worth their time to invest in seeing it again.”Rice said she was confident the production will be a success.“We’re hoping that with this production we can bring more than just entertainment value and bring home a more important message,” Rice said.Performances will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.last_img read more

The characteristic shape of the triangle of the Istrian peninsula has been used as a frame of reference to emphasize what is at its center.

The 20-year-old racked up 35 five appearances for the Giallarossi during in his first full season at the club, and he continued to play a key role for the team at the start of the 2019-20 campaign.The Dutchman’s progress was stalled by an injury suffered at the start of December, but he returned to Paulo Fonseca’s line up towards the end of January.Kluivert has scored three goals in 15 Serie A outings for Roma this season, and he will be hoping to help the club secure a return to the Champions League come May.The former Ajax prospect is the son of legendary former Netherlands striker Patrick Kluivert, who he has always looked up to as a source of inspiration.Kluivert Sr enjoyed an illustrious career at both club and international level spanning 14 years, which he began at Ajax before taking in spells at Barcelona, AC Milan and Newcastle.His son also looks up to Ronaldo, due to the example he continues to set his peers on and off the pitch while on the books of Juventus.“For what he is on and off the pitch, my idol is Cristiano Ronaldo,” Kluivert told DAZN. “I’ve admired him since I was a child and I still follow him, but I don’t have a photo with him.”The winger added on his dream debut for Roma and having to adjust his playing style after arriving in Italy: “I like to dribble and overcome four or five players, but it’s not that easy anymore.

It was wonderful to be immediately decisive at a new club.”Kluivert is eager to follow in his father’s footsteps and win the Champions League, after working hard on improving the defensive side of his game over the last couple of years.“When I arrived in Rome I was terrible in the defensive phase and in Italy, if you don’t play for the others you don’t go on the field,” he said.“I focused a lot on this, I had a lot of problems in that phase. You have to prove that you are up to it when you have the ball and when you don’t have it.

first_imgJose Mourinho said he has no interest in winning the “Fair Play Cup” and was pleased to see Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min clash at half-time of the 1-0 win over Everton. Spurs captain Lloris and the South Korean were involved in a heated exchange on the way to the tunnel, which involved pushing and shoving, and had to be separated by team-mates. France goalkeeper Lloris appeared angry at Son’s perceived lack of effort, but they soon made up and were hugging on the pitch at the end of the game, celebrating three points that came courtesy of Michael Keane’s first-half own-goal. Mourinho said the spat should have taken place in the dressing room rather than on the pitch, but that is where his disapproval ended. “A team of good boys, a team of nice boys, the only thing they can win at the end of the season is the Fair Play Cup. Something I have never won and have no interest in winning that,” he said. “You have to have a certain characteristics. I don’t like a team without communication in a critical way. “What happened should not happen on the pitch, it should happen inside the dressing room, but I promise you my winning teams we had big fights, big fights in the team. “When I was arriving [in the dressing room] I saw the back of it, everything was over and they were hugging each other. In the last minute of the first half it ended with a Richarlison shot, Hugo thought that in that minute of the game attacking players should do a little bit more. “Hugo was arguing with Son and Son with him, I wanted to make sure the players understood I was happy with that. “When I told them that I think they realised that nothing was wrong.” Lloris also played down the incident, saying that the disagreement is part of football. He told Sky Sports: “It just belongs to the changing room. Outside you can say whatever you want. What happened is just part of football sometimes. “There is no problem at all, you could see after the game we were fine. I think to concede a chance a few seconds before half-time because we didn’t make a press annoyed me but yeah, that’s football.” That drama was the main talking point of an insipid game, settled by Keane’s first-half own goal. The win reignites Spurs’ European hopes as they move back into eighth ahead of a midweek round of Premier League fixtures. Everton never really threatened and only forced Lloris into routine saves in a defeat which damages their own European ambitions. They are four points behind Spurs in eighth, which could be enough to qualify for the Europa League, but boss Carlo Ancelotti has not given up hope. “It is more difficult but we are still there,” he said. “In five games we have three home games and two away, we have to fight until the end. read also:Premier League: Mourinho bites back at Arsenal jibe “We have less possibility after this defeat but nothing is lost.

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Spurs to face Bulgarian minnows in Europa League opener Bukayo Saka provided the inspiration as Arsenal fought back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Standard Liege and qualify for the Europa League knockout stage.For some time, the Gunners looked to have been slipping down to second place in Group F but a point, coupled with Eintracht Frankfurt’s home defeat to Vitoria, meant they avoided the likes of Ajax and Inter Milan in the last-32 draw on Monday.Samuel Bastien and Selim Amallah both scored from deflected second-half efforts for the Belgian side, only for Saka to cross for Alexandre Lacazette to head in before netting the equaliser himself.It remains to be seen if interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg will be in charge when the competition returns in the new year, but his decision to make nine changes this time out looked like it could have backfired at stages.Lacazette looked leggy as he returned to captain the visitors, who ended a nine-match winless run at West Ham on Monday before returning to the habit here.The defence is something that clearly needs addressing as Arsenal once again failed to keep a clean sheet, extending that particular streak to 13 matches and equalling the worst run of Arsene Wenger’s reign.Arsenal were guilty of misplaced passes on numerous occasions in the opening exchanges, with Konstantinos Mavropanos – making his first appearance since May – lucky to not gift Standard the lead as he gave the ball straight to Mehdi Carcela on the edge of his own box, only for the winger to shoot at Emiliano Martinez.At least Ljungberg’s attacking talent seemed up for the task at hand, Emile Smith Rowe heavily involved early on and testing Arnaud Bodart in the Liege goal with a low strike.Most of the play in the remainder of the first half was as poor as the surface underneath the feet of the players. Saka had a half-chance turned behind for a corner from an acute angle by Bodart.The 18-year-old, operating at left wing-back, then arrowed a shot just over as Ljungberg’s side pushed for an opener, with Reiss Nelson’s close-range header on the stroke of half-time the closest they came to doing so.It was the hosts who hit the front, taking the lead less than two minutes after the restart as Bastien’s tame shot took a huge deflection off Sokratis Papastathopoulos to wrong-foot Martinez and creep over the line.The second goal followed in the 68th minute, Amallah this time seeing his shot hit David Luiz to beat Martinez and nestle in the corner of his goal.Ljungberg turned to Gabriel Martinelli in the hope of adding some flair to a toothless attacking display, with Luiz sending a free-kick over the crossbar in a rare chance on goal.They reduced the arrears soon after as Lacazette finally got on the scoresheet as he did well to head home Saka’s fine cross.Saka then got himself a goal, cutting inside and bending home past Bodart, who will feel he should have done better.But it was some distance away in Germany where two late Vitoria goals determined that Arsenal held on to advance as group winners.

first_imgArsene Wenger knows his Arsenal side now must be patient and that two wins from the final two games of the Barclays Premier League season is the minimum requirement in their quest to qualify for the Champions League. By the time Wenger’s team next take to the field – against Wigan on Tuesday week – their London rivals will have each played a game more and may be in significantly stronger positions in the all-London top-four fight heading into the final day of the season. Arsenal last lost to Tottenham on March 3 and took their unbeaten run to eight games with victory at QPR, secured by Theo Walcott’s fastest goal of the Premier League season after 20 seconds. And Wenger said: “It’s very tight and it’s down to the team who makes no mistake.” He added: “I love it because it’s a lot of tension and very exciting. It’s demanding as well, because it’s not easy. We definitely have momentum, if you look at the points we have made compared to two months ago. We are going for it. “Away from home recently, we’ve won everywhere – at Fulham, at Sunderland, at Swansea and at QPR. It was a derby which was difficult to win.” Chelsea’s clash with Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday could go some way to deciding the Gunners’ Champions League fate. “Of course I want a result that goes for us, but again, it’s not because I wish something that you will get the result,” Wenger added. “A long time ago we focused on us getting the maximum points. “We have nearly done that because we dropped two points against Everton and two points against Man United (both home draws). Apart from that, we’ve won every single game (since that defeat to Spurs in early March) and we have to continue to do that.” Walcott took his tally to 20 goals for the season for the first time with his strike in the opening attack of the match at Loftus Road. Wenger cannot recall as swift a goal for his side – it was Arsenal’s quickest in the top flight, surpassing Robin van Persie’s effort against Sunderland in October 2011 – but lamented the failure to add to the goal. “Unfortunately I waited for the second goal but it never came,” Wenger said. “Going forward we can do better.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
