Last season, Tarell Alvin McCraney won the innaugural Paula Vogel Playwrighting Award & earned raves for his NY debut at the Public, The Brothers Size. His latest, a drag drama called Wig Out!, kicks off another season for the Vineyard. Regular collaborator Tina Landau glams the proceedings up. I caught a preview; I'll give you the low-down tomorrow.
The Women's Project broadens our horizons by bringing an ex-pat Romanian playwright's work to the stage. Aliens with Extraordinary Skills, by Saviana Stanescu, opens tonight at the Julia Miles, directed by Tea Alagic. It sounds like a slightly absurdist comedy about running a clown who runs afoul of Homeland Security.
Stephen Belber's got two plays in town this fall: the first, Fault Lines, opens tonight at the Cherry Lane Theater. Producers Naked Angels have an incredible track record since premiering Belber's Tape back in '02. This black comedy, directed by David Schwimmer (“Friends”), deals with a friendship gone bad in modern Manhattan. It replaced Frank Pugliese's The Talk in Naked Angels' season.
(Oh, & Belber's second upcoming play is Geometry of Fire at the Rattlestick, this November.)
John Patrick Shanley's latest drama, Romantic Poetry, sounds more like “Moonstruck” than Doubt: it's a romance set among the patchwork ethic groups of the NY metro area. It's also a musical, with songs by Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls). The show begins previews tonight at MTC's City Center.
Down the coast in DC, the Shakespeare Theater Company begins its run of Congreve's Way of the World, arguably the best English comedy of manners. Veanne Cox (Caroline, or Change) plays Mirabell, under the direction of STC AD Michael Kahn.
At the movies last week, I caught a preview for "Frost/Nixon": it's got the original cast but is directed by Ron Howard. Regional audiences may be better off catching the B'way tour, which retains director Michael Grandage but replaces the actors with Stacy Keach

The rise of young blood no no no, perhaps its the rise of new powers to the world of Motor Sport with brood of hot-shots making the people run for their money.With over a decade of domination by the retired Michael Schumacher, who saw his reign of F1 supremo fading with the new face Fernando Alonso during his last 2 years, gone for good the young speedsters has taken charge of bringing the thrill with the sleek cuts in the chicane and the high speed accelerating straight paths.
Lets first take our spot-lights to the former 2-time champion Fernando Alonso. Now this spaniard had everything going in the right way but then his good luck streak ended when he choose not the Renault but instead left for the silver grey McLaren. Well some might answer immediate that the champion had prefered for special treatment but the flammo it fissped off when debut black driver Lewis Hamilton and his fellow team driver set up his eyes to crown as well. Now, he is all set to get back to the blue shades of Renault team.
Next in the brood of shot-short list comes the debut driver Lewis Hamilton.Ask whats special in this britian driver and the answer is the dream run of 2007 which turned the fan tide towards his favour.Even the legends Alain Prost or anyone for that matter have'nt had that luck to make themselves look special.But then this lad showed such class and tactics in race strategy.He's simply brilliant and one can expect more from this McLaren driver.
Now,the last but not the least comes the former McLaren driver who stepped to full the place of Mika Hakkinen.And its the 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen.McLaren's long time void place filled with part-timers came back to its winning ways once the Fin-Lander stepped in to fill his shoes. But then there was one last thing which denied him his rise to F1 championship. The wretched thing happens to be "luck". Fin has everything in favour but the luck itself.The silver-grey failed to live upto his expectations.But then the Scarlett Ferrai was the right choice for him but in tactics and as well as in technology with the luck. He is talented and that see's to that he sails his way to the chequered flag.Mind u,he was damn lucky.He finished with 110 points in the top spot to cut narrow the lead of 109 points of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.
And thats all we have for end of 2007 F1 season. Hoping for a great season in upcoming 2008 season.

Certainly the T20 game has caught the attention for 2 reasons. One for the sake of swash-buckling hitting of the power charged batsmen and two though bizarre happens to be the cheer-leading. Even more bizarre happens to be the fact that the politicians happen to all of a sudden turned their eyes towards the cheer-leaders.(They never turn for any necessary things required for the country. But in this.... God knows.)Things may not be that pleasant for the pom-pom girls for the coming days as far as IPL is concerned.
People abuse them, shown rude gestures, the media zoom focusses them in an awkward manner forgetting that they are just here to cheer for the team rather than being harnessed by the public. Clearly they don't deserve this. True that the land has its moral. But then its own sons and daughters does'nt even happen to have the courtesy for the so called pom-pom girls.People should know that they come for a cause and when the works done, they're gonna sail home with a bad opinion about our country.
It's a matter of self-respect for the individuals here at India and people should blame themselves rather than those damsels after all we are the ones who are looking at them shamelessly, pass silly comments about them and now even the country's responsible persons,(especially in Mumbai), the so-called politicians have chipped in for the assault.
On the whole a bunch of irresponsible & ill-literate (and learnt senseless) peoplemake India looks ridiculous for something which has to be left out rather than grabbing attention.

The old Billa version has been re-made by the director to perfection.Now one may ask whats so special bout this same old out-law story. One thing which stands out is that the movie is times only just bout 2 hours for the first time in kollywood history. Another interesting feature happens to be that the movie is the most stylish out of the few in numbers. The movie sets the pace right from the start and it never felt like slowing down one bit in its entire duration. Also movie's classic songs have been re-mixed by Yuvan to remind good old times.
Apart from these solo hi-fi featuring perks to the catchy movie, it adds up style. Style, style and simply style.
NOTE: Hilarious part to be released later.....

The general base model happens to be estimated as around 1 lakh rupees and the deluxe model happens to be exceed by twenty thousands rupees with slight increase in the engine to make it efficient.
As far the space criterion is concerned, the car can fit 4-5 people inclusive of the driver's seat.Though looks as broad as Indica V2 in witdth the model is lesser by 20% in length with respect to the length in comparison with the former.
Like most tata motors models of car menu this also comes in as a diesel engine with lesser bph there by providing a mileage of more than 25 km/L.
So on the whole its the cheapest of its kind promising a lots of features dreamt by most automobile producers.

Earlier the Mumbai Indian's were asked to bat first after lossing the Toss, Jayasuriya and his partner made a perfect start and then followed by a steady partnership between thornly and Uttappa, when all of a sudden the cards started falling and lose face to the home crowd. But then the Mumbai Skipper seen to that they put a worthy score to challenge the dare-devils.
In the later half, the dare-devils team lost early wickets,secummbed to pressure with the calculated Pollock pace and length variaition.The in-form Gambhir failed and the gambling master Sehwag lost his wicket cheaply. The team was bowled out for 134 runs after a good bowling and batting performance for the dare-devils that had no clue to Shaun's All-round performance.
On the other hand the master maestro Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar missed out yet another time who still happens to be suffering from the groin-injury. Time will tell whether he would ever participate in the IPL match.
The top three teams sharing the ultimate position happens to be the Delhi Dare-devils, Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings.
The Dare-Devils happens to taken some by surprise, afterall the team happens to be led by the gambling man Virender Sehwag. But then with a most trust-worthy batsmen Gambir under his belt, things happen to have swung by his way. Not to mention the bowling attack which is led by the spearhead Glenn Mcgrath in command with other lesser bowlers like Asif and other delhi pacers.The pigeon's pace attack ends up either with a wicket or as a miser who simply makes the batsmen work for his runs.Till now the team's top-order never failed to deliver for the skipper's liking.So far so good.
Next comes the Rajasthan royals. These royals happen to be least bought team and was given the perk of miser for not spending for the team. But then, Shane Warne makes all the difference in the team.This team works for their success irrespective of the fact of not having any power packed hitters or the most skilled bowlers. The team as so far faced only a single defeat. With the coaching and the captaincy of the team done by Warne the former world's leading wicket taker in tests,things started to heated up and their thirst for victory certainly not stopped yet.
Finally, the awesome Super Kings. The team is meant for its ruthless batting line-up,but with Hayden, Hussey(Michael) & Oram leaving the table free, the team slightly happens to be shaken up a bit. Mahi, the wicket-keeper captain happens to have his team's bowling weakness in mind despite having the crafty Murlitharan for his aid. With his first loss in the IPL match against the Dare-Devils, things look shaken for Dhoni.
Today's Match: Delhi Dare-Devils Vs Mumbai Indians
Rajasthan Royals Vs Chennai Super Kings

Meanwhile Dada(Kuruthu Thatha) seems to have the cushion of simply spending his time simply squatting behind at the pavilion doing nothing but bitting nails over his dis-mal performance.With the departure of McCullum & Ponting, Sourav hardly looks like a captain these days being commented for his captaincy by his own team and the attitude from the opposition camp.
Things aint going the Kolkutta's team favour as far as the IPL is concerned. If this continues on, the team might have their chances of winning for the next year.

The wait for dasavathaaram seems to the just killing for many. Apart from ardent kamal Hassan fans.If ordinary film goers are also looking for the day it will hit the screens.It is all because of the pre-launch publicity.Almost all major production houses are now doing it nowadays creating a hype.
Dasavathaaram producer Mr.Ravichandran says , they have spent over Rs 70 core making this film and another Rs 25 core for publicity . The first three minutes of the film has been said to cost him Rs 3 core .
This is a super trend started much earlier from the boss .The well known person Mr.Rajinikanth. Which is probably one of the top grossing film of 2007.Nowadays all the producer, director, and actor are using the same trick to run a film .

As for the chargers its a matter of pride after losing face to Royal challengers in front of the home crowd.Since the chargers are yet to post a victory at home, they will be eager to have this one in their bag and prove a point that they are no push-overs.

Also u don't see Lollu-Sabha( a comic tv show aired in Vijay tv , now in all tv, but especially in Sun tv a training center of Kalaingar tv) Santhanam comic tracks in this movie either. I mean come on why in the world do u have even show him in the first place... Is'nt this suppose to be a thriller... Well one thing is for sure he adds to the blunder.
Next our king of the center.... The Pullaiyar Thilagam, Son of emotional Thilagam "Prabhu Prabhu bhu hu u". Most of the time one can see him with a candy bar in his hand munching it out.(Is he a cop or kid??? But one thing is for sure his belly size identifies him as a cop.... ISI marked!!!)
Despite all this lows one thing is appreciatable bout Mr.Prabhu... Good thing he started taking the supporting actor roles these days inspite of losing the male-lead.... Good thing he did'nt take the drama artist role. But then if he continues 'Ghoosti' he will get eliminated from this too....
NOTICE: The above written scripts are made up and strictly no offence.... Watch out for our next post.
The match between the 2nd place Kings XI and the 3th place Super Kings took place at Mumbai,yesterday the 31st of May. Winning the toss Yuvi decided to bat first on a pitch without grass. As for Captain Marvel,he started the overs with Off spinner ace Murlitharan to start the rampage for the side. Marsh started his innings with a cover drive. And people would have guessed that the side is gaining momentum to make a big role.Well then the wickets started falling with the edge from Hopes. And then followed by in-form Sangakkara. Followed by prince charming himself without knowing the answers for the doubts raised from the variation of speed,line and length.Then the Kings XI promising batsman Marsh fell for 23. And the side ended up for 113 with the tail enders dragging the score to some extent after the batsmen failed to impress.Ntini took 2 wickets with a run out cause adding value for his side.Apart from Gony,Morkel chipped in with 2 wickets each with murlitharan taking 1 wicket.
Session 2 started with CSK Vidyut and Parthiv to open the innings after Stephen Fleming departed.The innings started merrily but then fell for the short ball trick once again.After that Raina stepped in with the booming confidence from his previous match's good performance and then started to march forward towards the winning path.Both Parthiv and Raina made half centuries and demoralized the opposition's attack.On the other hand prince charming didnt have the clue to overcome or even impress people with a performance.Despite the batting and bowling depth in the team,the Kings XI failed in all departments to the CSK.
On the whole CSK overpowered Kings XI and outwitted them with a 3-0 lead over Kings XI.Ntini was judged the Man of the match.

As for the Royals,things started off for the worst with the openers falling out within 32 runs on board.Pathan.Y failed to deliver like the last match.Watson submitted to the building pressure with the Master blaster taking a great catch of his wicket.As usual Kaif blundered his chances to shine in the tournament. By this time, home side were 77 for 5.Then came the heroes in the form of Jadeja and Patel to save the home team's 6 win nil lose record to a 7. The final over was given to Dilhara with 15 runs required.Had it not been for Jayasuriya's fumbling at the lost nick of the moment which made the visitors side look bad, they would at least drawn the match.
Perhaps age is not just a number like sachin mentioned earlier!!!!!
