The first national touring production of Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations will officially launch at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, in July 2020. The traveling production of the Tony Award-nominated Best Musical will play more than 50 cities coast-to-coast for more than 100 touring weeks, including a homecoming to The Temptations’ roots in Detroit, and a triumphant return to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.“We have been so blown away by the reception for Ain’t Too Proud—not only on Broadway, but also from our pre-Broadway engagements—that we can’t wait to bring the show back to audiences across America,” said producers Ira Pittelman and Tom Hulce, in a statement. “Feedback from cities we have already been to has been extraordinary. When we first played D.C.’s Kennedy Center it was in the Eisenhower Theater; however, for Christmas 2021, they are welcoming us back to their largest venue, the Opera House.”Ain’t Too Proud is the electrifying new musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With their signature dance moves and unmistakable harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. The rest is history—how they met, the groundbreaking heights they hit, and how personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart as the United States fell into civil unrest. This thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal is set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and so many more.Ain’t Too Proud, written by three-time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, and featuring choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo, now brings the untold story of this legendary quintet to irresistible life on Broadway. Ain’t Too Proud is currently playing Broadway’s Imperial Theatre and was recently nominated for 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Choreography, Best Direction of a Musical and Best Orchestrations.last_img read more

Livingston complete move for Angolan forward Dolly Menga

first_imgHe said: “Dolly has been in the pipeline for a week or so and was in training with the club last week. He really impressed and we were keen to get him on a contract.“He can play on either wing. but predominantly the right; and can play up top as a 9 or second striker. He is a strong, powerful player with a great turn of pace.”New Lions boss Gary Holt said the move had already been pushed through before his arrival.He added: “As Davie has said, Dolly was tied up before I got the job and I’m more than happy with what I have seen from footage, and what I have been told from the coaching staff. We have an extremely competitive squad now and I’m excited to start working with them.” Livingston have signed Angolan forward Dolly Menga on a two-year deal.The former Blackpool attacker impressed on a training stint with the Lions last week and has now been handed a contract by the newly-promoted Premiership outfit.Menga, 25, follows midfielder Steve Lawson through the entrance at the Tony Macaroni Arena after the Togo international also penned a deal following a successful trial period.Assistant manager David Martindale said the move came about as a result of Livi extending their scouting networks over the summer.last_img read more

Augmented Reality Maps and Directions Coming to iPhone

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting john paul titlow Image courtesy of Patently Apple. Tags:#Apple#web Related Posts In the not-too-distant future, iPhone users may be navigating around using an augmented reality interface that overlays all kinds of data relevant to their immediate location, as well as turn-by-turn traveling directions from one location to another. Instead of navigating as a little blue dot along a purple line on a 2D, birds-eye-view map, think of the future version of the iPhone’s native Maps and Compass apps as something a bit more like Google Street View meets Yelp’s mobile augmented reality feature Monocle. Apple has applied for a patent to do exactly that, according to a post on Patently Apple. The patent also includes details that point to Google Goggles-style visual search functionality. Just as people can use Google’s mobile visual search feature to look up recognizable objects and barcodes, in the future, the iPhone’s camera will be able to pull up relevant local data about an intersection or landmark. So for example, if you’re navigating the streets of a new city, holding your phone up in front of you, the screen will display a live video feed of what’s in front of you and overlay information about what’s nearby, as well as what your next move is in order to get to where you’re headed. Presumably the feature would also work on iPads, whose bigger screens might be even better suited to cramming several graphical visualizations of data about nearby places and things. Of course, there are already turn-by-turn GPS apps for iOS, Android and other operating systems, but having an augmented reality-based navigational system that’s native to the phone is pretty unique. And while other vendors may come out with apps that have similar functionality, having this feature baked right into such a widely used device by default could make this futuristic-sounding equivalent to the map and compass approach near-mainstream status as quickly as a new version of the iPhone can sell. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Jordan Pickford allays fears over ‘daft’ hand injury after thumping knee

first_imgEngland “As long as you are set and in the right position, you give yourself the best opportunity,” he said. “The other keepers and I, and Marge [the goalkeeping coach, Martyn Margetson], work hard every day to make these saves become a bit easier.“We do about 600 saves a week just to make one save on a Saturday, and that’s what it’s all about. We don’t want to be going into a penalty shootouts every game, and that’s my job to help the team when I’m called upon by making those saves.“To win a shootout and go through all that emotion as a group, and now to beat a tough opponent in Sweden … that just shows you our mental strength and our togetherness going into games.” Share on LinkedIn Yet a moment of indecision in the second half led to Pickford momentarily losing his cool and attempt to thump the turf in frustration.“It was a daft injury by myself,” he said. “I went to punch the floor and ended up punching my knee and hurt my thumb. It was a bit of anger. But I’m a man, not a mouse. I’m fine and I’ll live another day, won’t I?“The award will go on my mantelpiece, that one. It’s about performing and getting better, and the more games you play the better you become. I feel this performance has put me in good stead.”Pickford’s penalty save from Colombia’s Carlos Bacca in the last‑16 shootout had demonstrated the 24-year-old’s qualities with his performance in Samara, watched by family and friends in the stand, underlying that pedigree. His first two saves from Berg and Claesson, in particular, took the breath away. Share on Twitter Sweden Jordan Pickford has allayed fears over his fitness for England’s first World Cup semi-final in 28 years, despite departing Samara clutching the man of the match award while sporting heavy bandaging on his left hand.The Everton goalkeeper’s trio of outstanding second-half saves, denying Marcus Berg twice and Viktor Claesson, secured England a first clean sheet of the tournament and smoothed their progress into the last four for the third time ever, where they face Croatia.

Valverde Hopefully Coutinhos brace will give him confidence

first_imgBarcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is hoping that Philippe Coutinho will receive a boost in confidence following his brace against Sevilla in their Copa del Rey quarter-final win.After losing the first leg 2-0 at Sevilla last week, Barcelona were ruthless in the return leg at Camp Nou with Coutinho’s double helping them to a 6-1 victory.Ivan Rakitic, Sergi Roberto, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi were the other scorers on the night as Barcelona sealed their semi-final spot in the Copa del Rey with a 6-3 aggregate win over Sevilla.But, for Valverde, a big factor to take from the game was Coutinho’s brace at Camp Nou after the Brazilian playmaker’s form had been put into question following a lacklustre campaign so far.Blaugrana captain Messi even selflessly gave up a chance to score an early penalty for the team by instead allowing Coutinho to slot it home instead.“Leo has given it to him to take and he has taken a great responsibility and made it 1-0,” said Valverde, according to Fox Sports.“I hope the success gives him more confidence.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…Speaking after the game, Coutinho thanked Messi for allowing him to take a confidence-boosting penalty.“The penalty has come naturally,” said Coutinho. “Leo’s gesture shows how great it is.“Thanks to Leo, for letting me kick the penalty, that’s good for the confidence of the group.“We knew that to overcome, we had to be involved from the beginning.”Although the most pleasing factor for Valverde was the way Barcelona responded by rising to the challenge when it was necessary after losing the first leg of their quarter-final tie to Sevilla 2-0.“The best thing is that we have security and we confirm that we are a team that when we have to take a step forward, we do it,” he said.Next up for Barcelona is another home game against Valencia on Saturday in La Liga.last_img read more


Books in the age of Candy Crush

first_imgWhen Jane Austen declared that ‘after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!’, she of course had never imagined something like a Facebook and Instagram. Technology has taken over our world. Go to a mall, a park, a subway, anywhere and you see everyone bent over their phones. Communication or face to face communication rather, has taken a backseat, and so has the simple pleasures of life. Like walking in the park and noticing a blooming flower, like riding to work and noticing fellow passengers and their lives on the bus, like reading a book. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Books have taken a backseat and the proof is the gradual disappearance of bookshops, book clubs and library cards. Honestly, when was the last time you used a library card (if it hasn’t already expired) for just the pleasure of going to the library and browsing through some old favourites? What happened to the book clubs that used to be such a rage in school?Somehow Internet, chats and social media has taken over the good old pleasure of sinking deep into a engrossing piece of literature. Instead of learning to read from picture books, toddler know how to operate an iphone. Reading extensively has been replaced by scrolling through posts on tumbler, memes have taken over comic books. Life has become more about instagramming than about actually enjoying it. Books are not discussed at home where family meetings are held in front of the television sets and a new Xbox or a selfie stick has become a better Christmas gift than a good old hard-cover. We may plead guilty and blame the scarcity of time as the reason for the withdrawal from books, but the lack of literature in life has its own disadvantages.

Of course bookworms can still be found curled up in bed with a book, instead of livetweeting their lives, but they are a dying breed. Technology has indeed made the world an easier place to live in but let’s not sacrifice the simple pleasures of life over it.Between The Covers is a weekly column on reading up and rating downlast_img read more
