First Nighter: Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'School of Rock' Doesn't Quite Rule
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The old theater saying that goes "If you have a great finish, you don't have to worry about anything else" comes close to working for the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Glenn Slater-Julian Fellowes musical adaptation of School of Rock, screenwriter Mike White's 2003 movie starring Jack Black. And like just about every other of the not abundant high points in this Lloyd Webber-ized School of Rock,, it involves the terrific young actors -- several of them young actor-musicians -- working like cheerful demons in the story about offensive wannabe rock star Dewey Finn (Alex Brightman, apparently no relation to Sarah), who deviously takes a temporary teaching job at exclusive Horace Green.

Bull Statue Loses Genitals
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
HURRICANE, Utah (AP) — The small southern Utah town of Hurricane might become a little quieter after a statue of a copper bull lost its most prominent private feature this weekend. The sculpture holds a high perch above the sign for Barista's restaurant, and owner Stephen Ward said he woke up Friday and decided the bull would look better without the oversized genitalia that caused uproar among the neighbors. Hurricane residents disturbed by the noticeable, cone-shaped feature had asked the city council to revoke Barista's business license. Ward told the Spectrum newspaper in St. George (http://bit.ly/1Dgosne ) Saturday that he made it clear to city officials before he altered the statue that he wasn't bowing to community pressure. "I told them I am not removing the penis for you or because of your complaints. I don't like you. I'm doing it for me," Ward told. "I just decided it would look better without the weenie. And oh my God! It's beautiful." Even before the battle ov ...

Utah Town Goes Nuts Over Bull Statue's Genitalia
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Hurricane, Utah, is usually a peaceful place, but the giant genitalia of a bull statue atop a local restaurant has pricked the calm environment of this normally serene city. A ballsy bust of a bull with a massive penis was erected on top of Barista's Restaurant on March 14, according to the St. George News. Since then, the copper statue has aroused controversy, in part due to its location across the street from a local high school. “It looks terrible,” Denise Mackelprang told the St. George News. “I could see the bull, but not the details of the sex. It’s R-rated to me, especially with young school kids seeing it and talking about it.” At least 600 of Hurricane's 14,576 residents have signed a petition demanding that the Hurricane City Council "refuse the business license renewal." As a member of the Hurricane City council has already said, Barista's has given Hurricane, UT a "black eye". It's owner is a terrible representation of what our community stands for. He takes ...

Lloyd Webber to revive 'Cats' in London, hints at movie
Yahoo News - over 2 years
By Rollo Ross LONDON (Reuters) - Andrew Lloyd Webber is about to find out if felines have more than one life - and possibly a cinematic one as well - as he prepares to bring his 1980s hit musical "Cats" back to London's West End for a limited run. The creator of hit musicals including "Evita" and "Jesus Christ Superstar", announced plans this week to revive "Cats", his 1981 show based on poet T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats", for a 12-week run beginning on Dec. 6. Lloyd Webber said he would also consider bringing back some of his other hits, such as "Phantom of the Opera" and "Starlight Express", and that movie versions were a possibility.     "Yes I think it's very possible that I might have a look at one or two of my shows," Lloyd Webber said. His most recent foray into the West End was "Stephen Ward", about the 1961 British politics-and-sex scandal known as The Profumo Affair which arose from a sexual liaison between the then Secretary of War, John Profumo, and asp ...

Andrew Lloyd Webber Gets Sexy With 'Stephen Ward'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LONDON -- He's done the Bible, felines, operatic phantoms and Argentine politics. So what is Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest musical about? Sex – as well as politics, spying, social revolution and the Cold War. "Stephen Ward" centers on a sensational real-life scandal, the 1963 revelation that Britain's war secretary, John Profumo, was involved with model Christine Keeler, who was also sleeping with a Soviet naval attache. If, as poet Philip Larkin once said, sex began in 1963, the "Profumo affair" was the Big Bang. With its collision of sex, wealth and national security, the Profumo affair rattled Britain's Establishment, came close to toppling the government, and fascinated the nation. But Lloyd Webber says his musical, which opens in London in December, is about more than the scandal – it's a portrait of a "febrile time" of tumultuous social change. "The Profumo affair takes up three minutes of stage time," the composer told The Associated Press on Monday at a preview of songs f ...

It’s Burnley, not Barcelona – but Garcia taking tiki taka to Brighton
Burnley Express - over 3 years
“It’s Burnley, not Barcelona”, was a phrase once uttered by former Clarets boss Stan Ternent as the club struggled to get back on an even keel after the ITV Digital crash. Indeed, it became the title of a Dave Thomas book, based on the events of the 2002/03 season. However, while there are few similarities between BB10 4BX and the Catalan capital, tomorrow’s opponents Brighton are trying to create a piece of the Mediterranean coast on the south coast. After the club sacked Gus Poyet for gross misconduct over the summer, they turned to former Barca midfielder and coach Oscar Garcia to maintain Albion’s possession-based style of play. Garcia is relatively inexperienced, in only his second senior managerial post, having last season landed the job at Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv, who he led to the championship for the first time in 10 years. However, he was considered an outsider for the post at Camp Nou in July when Tito Vilanova quit to undergo further treatment for throat cancer. ...

    More Details Hide Details He was part of the team that avoided relegation on the final day of the season. After Wolves suffered a second consecutive relegation to enter League One in 2013, Ward was one of a group of players made available for transfer by the club's new head coach Kenny Jackett. On 16 August 2013 Ward was loaned to Brighton & Hove Albion for the 2013–14 season, where he made 47 appearances as the club reached the play-offs but were defeated at the semi-final stage by Derby. Brighton then agreed a permanent deal with Wolves for Ward over the close season, but interest from the Premier League halted the move. On 15 August 2014 Ward moved to newly promoted Premier League side Burnley, signing a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
    During the 2010–11 season, Ward filled a variety of roles, playing left-back, left midfield and as a striker.

Ward began the club's return to the top flight in the left-back role, but he soon suffered a cartilage injury that kept him out of action for two months. Returning in December, he made a total of 22 league appearances as the club managed to avoid an immediate return to the second tier.
  • 2007
    Age 21
    Ward had a bright start to English football scoring three times in his first six games, earning him the Championship Player of the Month Award for February 2007; his first goal came against Plymouth Argyle on 3 February.
    More Details Hide Details He featured in all of Wolves remaining fixtures as they reached the promotion play-offs where they lost to local rivals West Bromwich Albion. The next season was less successful for Ward as he was mostly used in an unfamiliar left midfield role, covering for the injured Matt Jarvis, but announced he was happy to play anywhere. Later on in the season, Ward himself also suffered injury woes as he was struck down with patellar tendinitis that ruled him out for four months, as the team narrowly missed a second successive play-off spot.
    After a successful trial, Ward joined English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2007 on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
    More Details Hide Details The fee, although undisclosed, was reported to be £100,000.
