According to the New York Daily News, Warner Bros. (the studio behind the first eight Harry Potter films) are in the process of securing movie rights for the West End epic.Sources tell the Daily News that a screenplay based on J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany’s new story is already in development, and that a film could premiere as soon as 2020. No word yet if Daniel Radcliffe would be on board to reprise his role as the boy who lived. In a recent interview with the Radio Times, Radcliffe expressed mixed feelings about the idea for the time being: “It would depend on the script. I am saying ‘no’ for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”Presented in two parts, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child presents Harry as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and a father to three school-aged children at Hogwarts. While Harry grapples with his troubled past, his youngest son Albus copes with a family legacy he never wanted.The Tiffany-helmed production opened officially at the Palace Theatre on July 30. Plans are in the works for the show to transfer to a Shubert theatre on Broadway next season.last_img read more


first_imgCynthia Erivo, Idina Menzel, Christine Cornish Smith, Ariana DeBose, Courtney Reed & Sutton Foster(Photos: Emilio Madrid-Kuser, Joe Scarnici & Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images & Caitlin McNaney) Nick Adams Has an XXX Voting CampaignIt’s more important than ever to make sure you’re registered to vote, partially because it could lead to some very interesting content from Broadway’s Nick Adams. The man behind Muscles and Mascara tweeted that he’d release a sex tape if Hillary Clinton were elected. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on the polls on November 8 and continue to monitor his Instagram. You know, for journalism purposes. Ariana DeBose Will Whisk You AwayAriana DeBose is a woman of many talents, from being a dancing bullet to a Bronx Tale vlogger. She’s also on her way to becoming a travel agent, having returned from Hawaii and ready to give Hamilton’s Lexi Lawson vacation tips. They’re also open to suggestions. Let us know what you decide on, girls! We could use a new spot, too. Our usual trip to the Heaviside Layer is getting exhausting. View Comments “The Circle of Life” Has Come Full CircleDisney is bringing an assortment of enchanted objects back to life next year with Beauty and the Beast, and they have elephants, mermaids and flying nannies on deck. This week, they added lions to the roster with the announcement of a reimagining of The Lion King. We have a few questions, the first being: Where are you going to find a live meerkat and warthog who can sing Swahili phrases? Let Cynthia Erivo Be Your StarFade in on a girl, with a hunger for chairs, with a belt and some pants to remember. The Color Purple Tony winner and our fashion role model Cynthia Erivo recently sported a stunning look on the American Theatre Wing gala red carpet, including a platinum blonde Marilyn bob. We’re not saying she’s officially the new star of Bombshell, but let’s just say we’re prepared to strut down a hall to make this happen. Sutton & Colbert Have a New Jellicle SongLook out, Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer: There’s a new Jellicle pair vying for the Heaviside Layer. Two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster teamed up with Stephen Colbert to offer an updated take on Cats, complete with belly rubs and curtain cords. We know she’s busy with Sweet Charity and Younger, but we’d love to see Foster show her talents at the Neil Simon. If there’s room for Grumpy Cat… Happy Friday, and Happy October Eve! We hope you’re celebrating with sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes (if you’re not too cool for them) and filthy stories from Julia Murney’s voiceover past. But first, let’s take a look at what went down on the Great White Way over the past seven days. Catch up on the wildest stories with the Lessons of the Week! Idina’s Fans Want Her to Stay in Her LaneWe’ve seen our fair share of Broadway stars’ dressing rooms, and we know they treasure gifts from fans. We’ve seen gifted fan art, Schmackary’s orders and unicorn slippers, but we’ve never a bowling ball. Blazing supernova Idina Menzel revealed she received a green one from a fan without caring to elaborate. Let’s hope she uses it on the pins to bring them down (bring them down…ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhh!) Molly Pope’s a Humble Gay IconSpeaking of gay icons, let’s talk about Molly Pope. The actress and club singer describes herself as an “ascendant gay icon,” applying the modifier out of humility (you know, like Idina with idina.) But with a Judy Garland-inspired act and Mame aspirations, we don’t think it’s possible for her not to be a gay icon. Face it, Pope. We’re already constructing a Pride float in your honor. We’re Gagging Over Courtney’s Side ProjectFlying around on magic carpets has to be high up on the “fun jobs” list, but sometimes, you just want to do more. Aladdin’s Courtney Reed, for example, is selling Broadway-inspired apparel through her line of chokers, Gagged. As you’ll recall, Aladdin’s Steel Burkhardt is selling juice, and Adam Jacobs has a shower full of solo albums. If you need some help, we know a guy who can move product for you. Rent Has More than One LineNick Blaemire is a great fit for Jonathan Larson’s Tick, Tick…BOOM!, being a composer himself and a massive Renthead. He first heard of Rent in middle school, and it stuck with him. Well, at least the first line did. All he remembered then was “December 24th, 9PM. Eastern Standard Time.” Come on, seventh-grade Nick. There are far more memorable lines than that. Like “Tumbleweeds…prairie dogs…yeahhh” or “Candy bar wrapper!” Carol Channing Has a Jellicle DateThese Jellicle Balls are getting more and more high profile. A few weeks ago, Ricky Ubeda told us he would bring Patti LuPone as his plus one to the feline festivities. Now, his Cats-mate Christine Cornish Smith revealed she would want Carol Channing to tag along. We just double-checked, and cats can eat raspberries in moderation, so this should work out just fine.last_img read more

first_imgElystan Court is a coveted art deco building.A boutique two bedroom apartment was among the hottest properties selling under the hammer this weekend, with a fired up Brisbane market delivering a sale of $925,000 after 25 bids by six bidders.The ground floor New Farm apartment, one of just seven created in the coveted 1900s Elystan Court building, went under the hammer just after 11am drawing a crowd that spilt out onto the road. There’s also an independent cinema in the suburb.The 130sq m apartment at 1/38 Elystan Road has art deco character features including ornate ceilings that were over three metres high, architraves, original hoop pine timber floors and large format windows.Among its charms for those wanting inner city space was its spacious 27sq m private courtyard surrounded by gardens, allowing for an indoor-outdoor lifestyle.The home is just two minutes from New Farm Park, the River and Ferry terminal and a stroll from Merthyr Village, Powerhouse and the Howard Smith Wharves along the Riverwalk. MORE FROM SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK New Farm park is among the best features of the suburb.The new owners told The Sunday Mail that they were “ecstatic”.“We honestly thought we wouldn’t get it with the number of people here. We landed on the magic number.”“We lived around the corner when we younger and we always dreamt of living here. Five years ago we would pass this place and go one day, maybe. We will never sell, Our little man will reap the benefit of today.” This courtyard was a winner for the New Farm apartment.The property had drawn the highest views of all Queensland apartments going under the hammer this weekend, and was the second highest most viewed property in the state on realestate.com.au this past week, beaten only by a sprawling $15m home in Noosa.Bidding kicked off at $750,000 with six bidders registered. It jumped in $25,000 segments to $825,000, then went to $840,000 before rising in $5,000 lots to $870,000.It slowed to $2,500 increases to $880,000, before two attempted knockout bids of $890,000 and $900,000. At that point, the property was declared on the market by auctioneer Haesley Cush of Ray White New Farm. Queensland leads housing growth turnaround House sold in days as buyers return to market How homeowners can avoid feline catastrophes Classic art deco features were maintained in the property.Mr Cush said the market was fired up. “There was multiple buyers within a couple of thousand dollars of their final bid. So (the buyers) can take comfort in the value. For the sellers they can certainly take comfort that the market performed very well for them and that was validated by multiple bidders.”“For the market generally, to have an auction this early in the year with such huge interest is a very good sign of what’s going to come.”He said Brisbane ran “tends to run on a calendar basis” meaning “if it’s exciting in January, it will tend to carry for the whole year”.“It’s a very different feel (to 2019),” he said. “We’ve owned (Ray White New Farm) since 2005, and this is our best January by the length of that stretch. All of our agents came back early because we could sense that in December.” The property fetched the same price that the penthouse in the building fetched when it last sold a few years ago.There were then several $2.500 increases, before slowing to $1,000 rises, back up to $5,000 increases before a young family that persisted put in for $925,000.That was the final result, which saw them and their newborn son become New Farm’s newest homeowners on Saturday.Agent Tom Lyne of Ray White New Farm said it was “arguably Brisbane’s best art deco apartment building” and being in the heart of the suburb New Farm, it drew attention from all segments of the market including downsizers, upsizers and one looking for a holiday home.“That’s equalling the record paid for an art deco in New Farm,” he said, adding, “but in saying that you are paying for the pick of the top three art deco buildings in Brisbane. It’s the golden triangle here, it’s a lovely location.” MORE: Brisbane House Rules home sells Developments such as the Howard Smith Wharves have helped lift Brisbane’s image as an lifestyle destination.Homes that were not getting big numbers through open homes last year were now seeing fresh interest, he said.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoWith Brisbane yet to see “the incredible price lifts that Sydney and Melbourne saw over the last decade” the city was showing good value, he said.“Add to that the Royal Commission is done, lending is a bit easier, money is as cheap as it’s ever been and then Brisbane has got three or four major infrastructure projects … People are looking at Brisbane and going ‘okay there’s lots of jobs because of that work, there’s great lifestyle now that maybe was not there before, Gold and Sunshine Coasts are close, it’s cheap compared to the other states’. I think locals have recognised that and they are leading the charge.”last_img read more

first_img The former Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal star is seen as a shock option to fire the club to safety. Villa boss Dean Smith has been left short of choices after seeing striker Wesley and keeper Tom Heaton ruled out for the season with knee injuries. It means the club now have to spread their shoestring transfer budget across two key positions — and consider free transfers or loans to bolster their squad. Smith only has Jonathan Kodjia available up front — with Wesley’s injury meaning he may have to bring in two new forwards in January to give some cover in attacking positions. His only other striker, Keinan Davis, is himself working his way back to fitness after injury, so Villa have a massive hole in their squad. But with Financial Fair Play restrictions biting heavily, Villa will be scratching around to beg, steal and borrow players. Emmanuel Adebayor has been offered to Aston Villa as they desperately search for strikers to cover their injury nightmare. Loading… Adebayor’s camp know this — and have spotted what they believe is an unlikely opportunity for him to return to the Premier League at a late stage in his career. The Togolese frontman, 36 next month, is a free agent after leaving Turkish side Kayserispor last month, meaning he would be available to come in immediately without a fee. His advisers hope that fact — and his Premier League experience — might be enough for Villa to take a gamble on him as a cheap option, allowing them to also target another forward in a loan or small cash deal in the transfer window. Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge — now with Trabzonspor — is another option, although there are costs and fitness concerns associated with him.

It is financial concerns that may prevent Smith from pursuing either Jack Butland or Joe Hart to cover for Heaton in goal.
