Diane Lane Will Headline The Cherry Orchard on B’way

first_img Diane Lane This defines meta! Diane Lane, who made her Broadway debut as a child in the 1977 revival of The Cherry Orchard, starring Meryl Streep, is returning to the Anton Chekhov classic. Directed by Simon Godwin, the Oscar nominee will headline the previously reported new Great White Way adaptation of the play by Stephen Karam (The Humans). The limited engagement is now scheduled to begin previews on September 15 (from September 8) and officially open on October 16 (from October 6) at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre.Lane most recently starred opposite Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren in Trumbo. In 2015, she returned to the New York stage in Lincoln Center’s world premiere The Mystery of Love and Sex; other theater credits include Tennessee Williams’ Sweet Bird of Youth at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. Oscar nominated for Unfaithful and Emmy nominated for Cinema Verite, Lane’s numerous additional screen credits include Secretariat, Under the Tuscan Sun, Nights in Rodanthe, Hollywoodland, Must Love Dogs, A Perfect Storm, My Dog Skip, A Walk on the Moon, Chaplin, The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, The Cotton Club and Lonesome Dove.First produced in Moscow in 1904, The Cherry Orchard is Chekhov’s masterpiece about a family on the edge of ruin—and a country on the brink of revolution. The story of Lyubov Ranevskaya (Lane) and her family’s return to their fabled orchard to forestall its foreclosure, the play captures a people—and a world—in transition, and presents us with a picture of humanity in all its glorious folly. By turns tragic and funny, The Cherry Orchard still stands as one of the great plays of the modern era.

Africa Day: Get your funk on with five great musical tributes to the continent

first_imgFrom Sly to Fela, reggae to hip-hop, the world is indebted to the rich musical and cultural history of Africa. Here are five examples of that influence.Nigerian Afro-funk superstar Fela Kuti was a pioneer in bringing African music to global audiences in the 1970s. Fusing political consciousness with catchy funk rhythms, Kuti and his evolving musical collective, Africa 70, influenced a host of modern hip-hop, electronica and jazz artists. (Image: Wikipedia)CD AndersonThe world of music owes its origins and a monumental debt of gratitude to the rhythms and melodies of Africa. From the continent’s rich oral storytelling traditions that evolved into spoken word poetry and hip-hop, to the mournful makeshift simplicity of acoustic music that became blues and jazz, and powerful natural percussions that would ultimately get the rest of the world dancing to rock, reggae and funk, Africa is truly the ground zero of the global heartbeat.To celebrate Africa Day, here are just five examples of that overwhelming musical influence, five deep cuts from legendary African and global artists that not only pay tribute to Africa, but also celebrate its people and the undeniable pulse that those of us who live here feel every day.Fela Kuti — LadyNigerian Afro-funk superstar Fela Kuti was more than just another musician; he was a cultural movement, a religion and a seismic introduction to African music for the rest of the world.With pulsating, addictive hit singles and electric live performances, Kuti and his ever-growing music and dance entourage, Africa 70, travelled the world delivering uncompromising, unashamed African pride.Kuti’s Afro-funk sounds influenced some of the world’s biggest hip-hop, electronic and jazz artists seeking to push the envelope of music.The Meters — AfricaThe premier New Orleans soul funk family was the bridge between the motherland and the Caribbean, the old and the new worlds. On this tribute to the continent, The Meters tinge their swampy soul music with just enough voodoo rhythm and lyrical legend-building to get people thinking while dancing.Sly and the Family Stone — Thank you for talking to me AfricaSly Stone’s multicultural musical collective ruled both white and black airwaves in the 1960s and 1970s with charged political statements wrapped up in catchy musical hooks. And while much of their music owed more to the trailblazing funk soul of James Brown and rock sensibilities of Jimi Hendrix, the Family Stone’s tight rhythm section – led by bass guitar innovator Larry Graham – had their feet firmly planted in Kuti’s Africa.BCUC — YindeSouth Africa’s best kept musical secret, more appreciated around the rest of the world and on the continent than at home, Soweto’s Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness (BCUC) offer genre-bending musical theatre and triumphant black consciousness, telling African stories using African methods of dance, words and art.Lee Scratch Perry — African FreedomThe musical connections between Jamaica and Africa are steeped in their shared political and cultural history, and that marriage of sound and fury are best embodied by the father of dub reggae, Lee Scratch Perry.From Haile Selassie to Nelson Mandela, the celebration of Africa’s heroes is vital to reggae’s undying spirit and its continued popularity around the world.Source: Wikipedia, YouTubeWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

BJP leaders’ language reflects dictatorial attitude: Ambedkar

first_imgVanchit Bahujan Aghadi (VBA) chief Prakash Ambedkar has alleged that the language being used by BJP leaders during the election campaigns shows their “dictatorial” attitude which doesn’t suit democracy.He also charged the BJP government with being involved in “corrupt practices”, but said its way of grabbing money is different from the previous Congress and NCP-led dispensations.Addressing an election rally in Aurangabad district on Monday, he appealed to the Muslim community to support secular forces and start a “new chapter of friendship with the VBA”.He said BJP leaders are claiming that they will win around 240 Assembly seats of the total 288. “They think they will never go out of power, but they should remember that it is the voters who decide the government, not the political parties.” “The language being used by BJP leaders in their campaign is of dictatorship and doesn’t suit democracy,” the Dalit leader said.Hitting out at the BJP government, Mr. Ambedkar alleged that it is following the “same corrupt practices of the previous government”. “The only difference is its way of grabbing money.” He claimed several projects undertaken for expanding the road network serve as a medium of grabbing money for the government. The rates which the sub-contractors get for making roads are quite less, compared to what the head contractors are getting, he said.Mr. Ambedkar said the welfare schemes which the BJP government is trying to implement were available during the tenure of previous dispensations too.last_img read more

Rain in Punjab and Haryana to boost wheat crop

first_imgWidespread rain during the last two days in Punjab and Haryana is expected to boost wheat crop sowing this rabi season, officials and experts told The Hindu.An expected drop in minimum temperature during the first week of December would also help the temperature-sensitive wheat crop, which needs cold conditions to thrive.Rain and thunder showers at most places in Punjab and at many places in Haryana during the past 48 hours have brought cheer to farmers, especially the wheat growers who were in for another round of irrigation this month. The west Uttar Pradesh region also received isolated showers, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).“The current active wet spell over Punjab and Haryana is mostly over and thereafter the weather conditions are likely to improve with an expected fall in minimum temperatures in the first week of December,” said Surinder Pal, Director at the India Meteorological Department, Chandigarh.According to government data, in Punjab 75% of wheat sowing has been completed. The total sowing in the State is expected to be around 35 lakh hectares during the ongoing rabi season. In Haryana, wheat has been sown on nearly 18.05 lakh hectares so far. Both States are major contributors of wheat to the central pool.‘Welcome showers’“These are welcome showers. Sowing of wheat had started in early November and now it has reached the crown-root initiation stage. For farmers who have sown the crop in early November, it’s time for second irrigation of the crop, and hence, the rain has come at the right time. If at this stage the crop is not irrigated, it could result in less yield,” Anand Sharma, Deputy Director General of the Agromet Advisory Service Division at IMD said. Wheat is sown between late October till December while the harvesting starts from April onwards.last_img read more
