Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Allegro, starring Claybourne Elder and Elizabeth A. Davis, has extended its off-Broadway run through December 14. Directed by John Doyle, the production had been set to play a limited engagement through December 7. Opening night is scheduled for November 19 at Classic Stage Company. View Comments Allegro was Richard Rodgers’ and Oscar Hammerstein II’s third collaboration and first premiered on Broadway in 1947. The musical chronicles nearly four decades in the life of an Everyman, Joseph Taylor Jr. (Elder), from cradle through a mid-life discovery of who he is and what his life is truly about. The saga takes us from Joe’s birth through his childhood, from college dorm to marriage altar, and on to his career; from the tranquility of his small Midwestern hometown to the hectic din of big city life.

Sullivan increases Hammers stake

first_imgDavid Sullivan has purchased a controlling interest in West Ham after increasing his stake in the club to 55.6 per cent. Sullivan’s investment is part of a £25.5million restructuring of the club’s debt. The club’s official website shows that Gold still owns 30.6 per cent of WH Holding Limited, the club’s parent company, and CB Holding’s stake has been reduced to 10 per cent. Sullivan and co-chairman David Gold had been equal partners since taking over the Barclays Premier League club in January 2010. But Sullivan recently purchased an additional 25 per cent share from CB Holding, the firm which had controlled West Ham on behalf of Icelandic banks after former chairman Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson was declared bankrupt. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
