Stephen Schwartz Reveals Wicked Movie Details

first_img Related Shows Rejoicify! After years of speculation, we finally have some more official details about the Wicked movie. Stephen Schwartz revealed at San Diego Comic-Con that the Universal Pictures project, which is a few years away, will contain at least three new numbers. The composer also plans to incorporate at least one song cut from the Broadway show in the film adaptation.Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked spotlights the untold stories of The Wizard of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The show follows the tale of green-skinned Elphaba through the life-changing events that eventually label her “wicked.” Fun for the whole family, Wicked is a tale about love, friendship and trust that reveals that there are two sides to every story. The Grammy-winning score by Schwartz features the songs “The Wizard and I,” “Popular” and “Defying Gravity.”Book writer Winnie Holzman will return to adapt her script for the screen, and Stephen Daldry is set to helm the film. No word yet on casting. The original Broadway production was led by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth; the musical, still playing at the Gerswhin Theatre, is currently led by Rachel Tucker and Carrie St. Louis. from $95.00 Wickedcenter_img Rachel Tucker in Broadway’s ‘Wicked’ (Photo: Joan Marcus) View Commentslast_img read more

Arsenal v Aston Villa preview: Wenger’s on cusp of historic 12th final win

first_imgTeam news, match facts and manager quotes ahead of the FA Cup final between Arsenal and Aston Villa at Wembley Stadium.Arsene Wenger will seek to guide Arsenal to a record 12th FA Cup triumph when they face Aston Villa on Saturday and become the most successful manager in the history of the grand old competition.Yet as the Frenchman homes in on winning the trophy for the sixth time — one more than his former Manchester United sparring partner Alex Ferguson — Wenger promises the landmark does not concern him. Pitted against famished Premier League opponents Villa, who are desperate for success after a 19-year trophy drought and faced a relegation battle this side, Wenger’s side are ready to retain the trophy they won last year against Hull City.A sixth FA Cup win for Wenger would create a record in the modern understanding of a manager, though Villa’s manager/secretary George Ramsay oversaw six FA Cup victories between 1887 and 1920 and was the driving force behind their success.Wenger has had the same kind of impact at Arsenal since he arrived in 1996, but says setting an individual landmark does not particularly bother him. To do so, though, Wenger will have to get the better of Tim Sherwood, who helped secure Villa’s top flight status and has led them to a first FA Cup final in 15 years. TEAM NEWSShay Given is set to be fit for Aston Villa’s first FA Cup final in 15 years after returning to training following a groin injury.The goalkeeper was a doubt after missing the Premier League finale as Villa lost 1-0 to Burnley on Sunday but could return against Arsenal at Wembley. Aly Cissokho (groin), Kieran Richardson (calf) and Jores Okore (knee) have also trained but Ciaran Clark (knee) is out while Libor Kozak remains sidelined as he continues to recover from a broken leg. Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck will miss out after failing to recover from a knee injury.Manager Arsene Wenger has a number of selection decisions, such as whether to field goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and forward Theo Walcott from the start. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mathieu Debuchy (both hamstring) and captain Mikel Arteta (ankle) are in contention after returning to training following recent injuries.MANAGER QUOTES Arsene Wenger on Arsenal’s chance to become the most succcessful team in the history of the tournament with 12 final wins. “It’s not easy. I would love to do it but I’m not honestly focused on that. I’m more focused on the fact that we have fought so hard to get there. Now we want to finish the job. Personally I am always the same when I go into a big game like this. I have always the same pressure. I just want to do it.Tim Sherwood: “They are the holders of the trophy and it is going to be very difficult for us, but we are not just there to make the number up, but to give them a good game. The boys performed on a big stage against Liverpool and we thoroughly deserved to win that game and we are hoping we can do the same against Arsenal.”Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey: “Hopefully we can win the FA Cup this year. Then that’ll be two things in two years so hopefully we can just keep that run of winning things going. Back-to-back finals are not an easy thing to achieve. In the second half of the season we have shown the form that we need throughout the season to win this league. We certainly showed that we are capable of going on these big runs and not losing too many games. If we can just show that consistency throughout the season then we’ll be challenging for the Premier League, and that’s what we’ll be looking to do next year.”MATCH FACTSAston Villa have kept just two clean sheets in their last 21 FA Cup matches. Aston Villa have played in the FA Cup final 10 times, winning seven.They last won the FA Cup in 1957, beating West Bromwich Albion (in the semi-finals) along the way.This will be Arsenal’s 19th FA Cup final, a record for any team, and have won a joint-high 11 FA Cup finals.Olivier Giroud has scored seven and assisted four goals in his 13 FA Cup appearances, and has scored in each of his last three games against Villa.Only George Ramsay (6 with Aston Villa) has won the FA Cup as a manager more times than Arsene Wenger (5). Each of the last three times Arsenal have faced second tier opposition in the semi-final they’ve gone on to win the trophy (1998, 2003 and 2014).Arsenal and Aston Villa have been drawn together 10 times in the FA cup with the Gunners winning seven and the Villans three.Overall there have been 13 matches with three draws.The last FA Cup meeting between these two sides came in 2012 when Villa led 2-0 at half-time only to see the Gunners overturn the deficit in a seven minute period in the second half to record a 3-2 win.Arsenal have won 22 and lost just three of the last 34 matches in all competitions against Aston Villa (W22 D9 L3). All three of those defeats came at the Emirates. Christian Benteke has scored three goals in his last three appearances against Arsenal.Danny Welbeck has scored four goals in his last four appearances against Aston Villa.Mesut Özil has two goals and two assists in three appearances against Aston Villa.Eight of the last nine FA Cup matches involving Aston Villa have been settled by a one-goal margin.Six of the last eight have seen a 2-1 scoreline. All eight FA Cup finals at the new Wembley have been won by a one goal margin.16 of the last 21 FA Cup finals have seen only one team find the net. Four of the five in that run where both sides have scored have been won by the team conceding first.–last_img read more

SABC, Government pledge support for South African music industry

first_img11 September 2015At the opening of the 12th Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition at the SABC, Auckland Park on Thursday 10 September 2015, venue hosts SABC and Moshito partners the Department of Arts and Culture assured delegates of their continuing support in helping initiatives like Moshito in developing and curating South African music.Celebrating the legacy of SA music #fromkwelatohop & not forgetting our fallen heroes #TheGreatSouthAfricanSongbook pic.twitter.com/HrultThKBX— #Moshito2015 (@moshito_music) September 9, 2015Moshito Music Conference chairperson Sipho Sithole welcomed guests, delegates and visitors to the conference, saying that the Moshito ideal was to make the event a “premier destination for music makers and the music business” not only for Africa, but for the world. This year the conference has invited music business representatives and musicians from as far as China, Brazil and Jamaica to share and exchange ideas on how to strengthen the business as a viable commodity in the digital age.Chairperson of #Moshito2015 Mr Sipho Sithole opens the conference with a brief historical background and emphasizes it’s capacity to accomodate members of the entertainment industry #TheBusinessofMusicPosted by Moshito Otswela Pele on Thursday, September 10, 2015Sithole said that in the 12 years the conference had been running, Moshito has achieved a reputation as being the “most admired local event for music business engagement”, and that the three-year relationship the conference has built with the Department of Arts and Culture has only strengthened that credibility.In explaining this year’s conference theme, “From Kwela to Hop”, Sithole said Moshito wants to highlight the respect paid to South African music of the past, and how that respect informs and guides the music of the present and future. “South Africa,” he said, “wants to be known for a variety of genres: this variety defines who we are as a country.” But the conference, he said, pointing to the selection of musical showcases and collaborations with international artists to be held during the event, was not just about talking about music, but also an opportunity to feel, see and hear the power of South African music.#Moshito2015 Mr Matlala took the floor emphasizing the importance of the conference and exhibition #TheBusinessofMusic #TheGreatSouthAfricanSongbook #FromKwelatoHopPosted by Moshito Otswela Pele on Thursday, September 10, 2015In some words of support for the conference, SABC Group CEO Frans Matlala welcomed Moshito to the SABC venue, calling the event a pivotal instrument in promoting music across Africa, saying it was “fundamental in preserving South African culture.” He requested that Moshito do its part in telling the South African story to the world. Matlala hoped, as the success of Moshito grew, that the power of music would bring the rest of the world back to Africa. Matlala was confident this year’s event would be the best one yet, pledging that Moshito would always have a home at the SABC.SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng reiterated that commitment, praising Moshito for “doing well to stand by local artists.” He did, however, urge the music business in general to find a way to bring the various organisations that dealt with finances and support systems of the music industry under one umbrella organisation to insure a holistic philosophy to deal with the challenges of the industry. One of those challenges is the payment of music royalties to songwriters and artists, and Motsoeneng announced that after long negotiations with the industry, the SABC would commit to paying outstanding royalties to the sum of R100 million to local artists.“We want to make sure the money reaches the right people,” he said. Motsoeneng welcomed Moshito and its visitors to the SABC, saying the event’s philosophy “reminds us of where we come from, as well as where we, as a nation, are going.” The SABC is committed to adding more of that history, the legacy and the works of some of the country’s greatest music artists past and present, to all radio and television programming.Motsoeneng concluded by urging all music lovers to be active in that curation of culture by paying TV licences, the money from which goes back into promoting that culture to more South African, the African continent and the rest of the world.Representing the Minister of Arts and Culture, Deputy Director General of the department Monica Newton praised Moshito for changing the cultural landscape of the country over its 12 year existence. “It gives me a warm feeling in my heart that events like this do so much for nation building,” Newton said, adding that the Moshito organisation did well with dealing with the trials and tribulations of the music industry on behalf of the artists and music lovers in general, highlighting the challenges faced by the industry like piracy and technology changes. Newton added that it was important to create a living heritage of the arts in South Africa, respecting and honouring the legends of the past, using the lessons learnt from that to help guide and grow local musical culture into the future.“Music,” Newton said, “was a canary in a coalmine for society, a way to measure and negotiate the cultural landscape,” adding that the department’s partnership with Moshito was a pleasure and privilege to be part of. Newton concluded in wishing the event success and hoped it would become the foremost collaborator with both local artists and in its growing international friendships, “the people of Moshito have done a lot of hard work in strengthening the music business, and we wish them well for the future.”Lemmy “Special” Mabaso @EmileYX & Chachi Carvalho took us on a journey #FromKwelatoHop #Moshito2015 #AfroWorldNight pic.twitter.com/oQYHDgx2nE— #Moshito2015 (@moshito_music) September 10, 2015The Moshito Conference and Exhibition includes discussions on various aspects of the music industry in both local and international contexts, as well as looking at trends and changes that touch both the business and artistic development.

The Hustler’s Playbook: Be Authentic

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now You do not need to wait for someone to give you permission to be the real and authentic version of yourself. You don’t need anyone else’s approval or their blessing to become what you must become. Withholding who you are is to withhold your gifts, your truth, your contribution. You have all the permission you will ever need now.You don’t need to imitate anyone else. You don’t need to be a pale copy of a brighter original. You don’t need to succumb to the fear that you are somehow not enough and that it would be better to be like someone else (or to be that someone). You are enough.You also don’t need to be a derivation. You don’t need to be “the next” anyone or anything. Your truth is your own. Living someone else’s truth is to live a lie. Your interpretation is as valid as anyone else’s. No one else’s way is your way.You have to believe in yourself. You have to believe that your truth is enough, that your contribution is enough, that you are enough. The doubt you feel is the fear of being judged by others. It’s what happens when you live in a society that judges, that separates us from each other. Your belief in yourself has to be strong enough to overcome your fear of being judged.You have to have the confidence to act. You have to believe that you have the right to live your truth, even when those around you will work to make you believe that you don’t. Some would have you believe it’s safer to conform, to turn down your light, or extinguish it completely. But the real danger isn’t acting; it’s not acting and wasting the time you have been given.You have to rely on yourself. You have to trust yourself, your intuition, and your instincts. You have to believe that you alone can do what must be done and that you can make a difference. You have to be the one that you count on.Your mission and vision are your own. Your purpose is your own, and you decide what that purpose is. Your time is short. Make the most of it. Today is day one.last_img read more

Palisadoes Shoreline Project Completed Within Budget

first_imgWork on the Palisadoes Shoreline Protection Project in Kingston has been completed within budget, Transport, Works and Housing Minister, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies, has announced.He made the disclosure during Friday’s, February 15, media briefing at the Transport, Works and Housing Ministry’s offices in Kingston, where he updated journalists on a range of projects and developments, being spearheaded by the Ministry. The Palisadoes Shoreline Protection Project, which commenced in September 2010, was completed by contractors, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), within a 15-month period. The development entailed significant upgrading works along the corridor preceding the roadway leading to the Norman Manley International Airport.“I believe we all have seen it and realize it is an excellent job; and it was completed in December of last year (2012) at the initial contracted price of US$65.4 million,” Dr. Davies said.The Minister also indicated that additional work may need to be effected on an area beyond the airport’s round-a-bout, along the corridor leading to Port Royal. This undertaking, he pointed out, was not in the original scope of the project, but is the focus of concern due to erosion.Meanwhile, Dr. Davies advised that the deadline for the completion of the Jamaica Development Infrastructure Programme (JDIP) has been extended to June 2013 to facilitate the conclusion of several projects.He informed that JDIP was originally scheduled for completion at the end of the 2012/13 fiscal year in March, but has been pushed back due to delays in the completion of work on some of the programme’s original projects.These include: the Cassia Park and Queensborough bridges in the Corporate Area, where work is 88 per cent and 95 per cent complete respectively; and the Westmoreland Bridge in St. Mary, where 83 per cent of the work is done. Dr. Davies disclosed that approximately US$50 million remains to be spent under the project.He pointed out that the Government’s 15 per cent input, totalling some $800 million, which is reflected in the Supplementary Estimates of Expenditure as savings in the Budget, will be carried forward to the 2013/14 financial year to complement the equivalent of 85 per cent of the financing being provided by the China EXIM Bank.The JDIP, which is being carried out by contractors, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), is a major Government of Jamaica undertaking, which began in 2010 to significantly improve the island’s road network.last_img read more
