The Night Alive Jim Norton Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Feb. 2, 2014 In addition to Norton and Hinds, The Night Alive features the original cast direct from the Donmar Warehouse’s sold-out, world premiere run, including Caoilfhionn Dunne, Brian Gleeson and Michael McElhatton. View Comments This Night isn’t coming to an end just yet! Atlantic Theater Company’s American premiere presentation of Conor McPherson’s The Night Alive has extended its off-Broadway run at the Linda Gross Theatre through February 2, 2014. The show was initially scheduled to run through January 26. Directed by McPherson, The Night Alive stars Tony winner Jim Norton (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, The Seafarer) and Broadway vet Ciaran Hinds (The Seafarer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof). Tommy (Hinds) is not a bad man. He’s getting by—renting a run-down room in the house owned by his Uncle Maurice (Norton), keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm’s length, and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to the next with his pal Doc. Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who’s not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how. Their pasts won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives. Star Files Ciaran Hinds The Night Alive features scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Neil Austin and sound design by Gregory Clarke. Atlantic Theater Company previously presented premiere productions of McPherson’s Dublin Carol and Port Authority.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Head coach John Harbaugh says he won’t be making any changes to his 2016 coaching staff, but he will be losing a key defensive assistant.Linebackers coach Ted Monachino has been hired as the new defensive coordinator in Indianapolis, joining friend and former Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano. The Colts fired defensive coordinator Greg Manusky earlier this week, and Monachino immediately emerged as the top candidate to replace him.Having coached the Baltimore outside linebackers since 2010, Monachino is extremely close with six-time Pro Bowl selection Terrell Suggs and served as his defensive line coach at Arizona State.“That’s a great opportunity for him,” Harbaugh said. “It speaks to the quality of the guys that we have.”Some had thought Monachino might be the eventual successor to defensive coordinator Dean Pees, who will return despite the Ravens finishing 24th in the NFL in points allowed and shattering the franchise record for fewest takeaways in a season with only 14. First-year defensive backs coach Chris Hewitt will also return after drawing criticism as Baltimore allowed 30 touchdown passes and collected a league-worst six interceptions, both franchise worsts.Many fans and media had wondered if Pees’ job might be in jeopardy, but Harbaugh expressed confidence in his entire coaching staff while acknowledging they will make adjustments in schemes and other processes this offseason. With Pees and offensive coordinator Marc Trestman both set to return, the Ravens will begin consecutive seasons with the same coordinators for the first time since 2009 and 2010 with Greg Mattison and Cam Cameron.“I know what kind of coach Dean Pees is,” Harbaugh said. “I look at the season and the improvements that we made — especially in the back end — throughout the course of the season, and that’s what you look for. You’re going to face struggles and trials, and things don’t always play out the way you want them to.”The Baltimore defense improved substantially in the second half of the season after ranking 25th in total defense through the first eight weeks. The Ravens finished eighth in the league in total defense — they also finished in the same spot in 2014 — and were second in yards allowed over their final eight games.Harbaugh hopes that second-half improvement will carry over to 2016.“We were up and down and inconsistent throughout the first eight games of the season, for sure,” Harbaugh said. “We went to battle and went to work to correct those things and found a way to correct most of them throughout the course of the season.“We still have plenty of work to do, but I trust Dean. I know he’s a very good coach and all those guys — I know they’re good coaches. You work side by side with a bunch of guys through a season like this, you find out what they’re made of, and I like our guys.”
LOGAN — Utah coach Jim Boylen says he is excited about playing Utah State at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum in Logan tonight at 7 p.m., even if he may not realize exactly what he’s getting into.”I haven’t been there yet, it will be a new experience for me,” he said.When asked what he’s heard about it, Boylen said, “A lot of guys in the profession have told me, ‘Don’t schedule that game, don’t play up there.”‘Still, Boylen has never experienced the arena where the seats are very close to the floor and a frenzied student body sits right behind the east basket, near the visiting bench.The Ute coach ticked off tough places to play, such as New Mexico, BYU, UNLV as well as Oklahoma and Missouri State where the Utes have played this year, and asked, “Is it tougher than those places?”It may or may not be tougher, but the fact is, the Utes have not won in Logan since 1996 when some of the current players were in first or second grade. Granted that’s just five games, but since 1996, Ute teams have won six times at BYU’s Marriott Center, five times at UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center and three times at The Pit in Albuquerque.In Logan, the Utes have lost close games like the one two years ago when they lost on a 3-pointer at the buzzer and blowouts, like in 2004 when a team that eventually went to the Sweet 16 lost by 26.”Obviously I respect what they’ve done up there,” Boylen said. “They’ve got a great program; Stew (Morrill) has done a great job. But we’ll play anybody, anytime, anywhere. It’s a rivalry game, and we’ll make the most of it. Our goal is to go up there and win.”The majority of the Ute players haven’t played at the Spectrum, including senior guard Tyler Kepkay, who transferred to Utah last year.”I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “From what I hear it’s an amazing place to play.”One advantage the Utes may have is the timing of the game, coming three days before Christmas. Many of the Utah State students will have already headed home for the holidays, making the raucous student section a little more tame.The Aggies are having a better season than Utah, going 8-1 to date, including a 67-57 win Saturday night at Idaho State, where Utah was beaten two weeks earlier. The only other common opponent is Weber State, which USU beat 75-49 at home and Utah defeated 74-64 at home on Saturday.Tonight’s game could be decided in the battle of the big men.Utah’s 7-foot-2 Luke Nevill leads his team in scoring at 16.7 per game and rebounding at 7.8 per game, while USU’s 6-9 Gary Wilkinson has similar numbers, 17.7 ppg and 8.2 rebounds.Utah State leads the nation in field goal shooting at 52.9 percent, and Wilkinson ranks second at 69.5 percent.The Aggie starters will be Tai Wesley (11.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg) inside and Tyler Newbold (10.1 ppg), Jared Quayle (9.3 ppg) and Pooh Williams (3.3 ppg) outside.Utah counters with Lawrence Borha (10.3 ppg), Carlon Brown (9.5 ppg), Kim Tillie (3.9 ppg) and Jace Tavita (0.3 ppg), but Shaun Green (11.8 ppg) and Kepkay (11.2 ppg) will play a lot more minutes than Tillie and Tavita. Regular starting guard Luka Drca is serving the second game of a two-game suspension.Utah State has won 57 straight regular-season non-conference home games, second-best in the nation behind Duke, going back to 2000. Under Morrill, the Aggies are 146-12 at home and 70-4 against non-league opponents. After tonight, the Utes will come back after Christmas with a game at UC-Irvine Saturday, while the Aggies will play Howard, Houston Baptist and Wyoming on consecutive nights, starting Dec. 29.

Other clubs interested in Cesc’s services could be Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. Upd. at 19:45 29/12/2015 CET Ramon Calderon previously tried and failed in 2006, as did Florentino Perez in 2011. Some of Europe’s biggest clubs are interested in signing him and Fabregas could be set for a change of scenery as soon as January. The 28-year-old from Arenys de Mar would cost somewhere close to the 33 million euros Chelsea paid for him 18 months ago. Inter Milan and Juventus seem the best set to sign him, according to Il Corriere dello Sport. Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is one of the most wanted players in the winter transfer market. Since the departure from the London club of one of his biggest admirers, Jose Mourinho, the former Barcelona player seems further away from the Premier League with each passing day. Los Blancos would study a deal for the former Barça midfielder, nearly two years after he left Camp Nou, for the third time. Pep Costa

The UCD Bowl UCD vs Galway United Friday, July 20th. Kick-off: 7.45pmGalway United travel to the UCD Bowl on Friday evening to face league leaders UCD. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.Alan Murphy’s side are coming off the back of successive league wins, after United overcame a stubborn Cobh Ramblers side at St. Colman’s Park last week.In May, the Tribesmen produced arguably their best performance of the season to win 2-0 against Colie O’Neill’s side at Eamonn Deacy Park.With just seven league games remaining, it’s imperative that United continue to forge a run of form, as the race for promotion hots up.ALAN MURPHY SEEKING ANOTHER BIG UNITED PERFORMANCE AGAINST UCD“I’m looking for the same endeavour and effort,” Murphy told www.galwayunitedfc.ie.“The application of the game plan has to be the same. We’ve had two good results, but now we’re meeting a different side, it’s a different game and UCD will present us with a different set of scenarios and problems.“We’re looking forward to the game, it will tell us a lot about how far we’ve come in terms of confidence and progression over the last few weeks.“Every game is different, we won’t be resting on our laurels. We’ve already had two difficult games against UCD this year and we’ll be treating this game as a one-off.“Let’s see what we can bring to the table and what performance levels we can reach. Hopefully it will lead to another positive result.”TEAM NEWSMaurice Nugent (ankle), Mikey Whelan (hamstring) and Conor Layng (cruciate) are sidelined for the trip to the UCD Bowl.MATCH OFFICIALSReferee: Robert HennessyAssistant: Adam TszampelAssistant: Patrick O’ConnorFourth Official: Adam PatchellGALWAY UNITED GOALSCORERSDanny Furlong – 7Eoin McCormack – 7Conor Barry – 7Alan Murphy – 2Marc Ludden – 2Ronan Manning – 2Carlton Ubaezuonu – 2Stephen Kenny – 1Ryan Connolly – 1Robbie Williams – 1Stephen Walsh – 1FORM GUIDEUCDUCD 2-0 Drogheda UnitedFinn Harps 1-3 UCDUCD 1-5 Longford TownUCD 1-1 ShelbourneWexford FC 0-3 UCDGALWAY UNITEDGalway United 1-2 Finn HarpsWexford FC 0-0 Galway UnitedGalway United 1-2 ShelbourneGalway United 4-1 Athlone TownCobh Ramblers 1-2 Galway UnitedLAST MEETINGMay 11th, 2018 | Galway United 2-0 UCDGalway United goalscorers: Conor Kearns (OG) and Ryan Connollyprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email

Share This!If you ever thought about becoming an Annual Passholder, Walt Disney World’s recent announcement of new perks to celebrate its 45th anniversary provided additional incentives to take the plunge.Annual Passholder MagicBands – © John KivusGuests who purchase or renew an annual pass between October 2, 2016 and January 3, 2017 will enjoy 13 months of admission to Walt Disney World. They’re also upping their game on discounts. Through September 30, 2017, Passholders will get 20 percent off of purchases as Disney owned-and-operated merchandise locations, up from the previous 10 percent discount.As for dining, through September 30, 2017, Passholders will get 20 percent off the price of food and non-alcoholic beverages at 45 select theme park and resort hotel restaurants. The list includes restaurants in each park, along with the many of the Disney resort hotels. One welcome addition is 20 percent discounts at select counter service restaurants at the parks and Deluxe Resorts. Other table service restaurants continue to offer Passholders 10 percent discounts as they had previously.Great news, but it leaves you with a decision to make in the next few months and some unanswered questions. To help you make the right call, here is some clarity on issues that weren’t made entirely clear by Disney’s announcement.When do I have to activate my annual pass to get the 13-month offer?This is important, because having to activate your Annual Pass by that January 3, 2017 date would probably be a deal-breaker for many of us. After getting a clarification from a cast member, the date restriction is clearly for the purchase of the Annual Pass and not the activation.As long as you purchase your pass by January 3, 2017, you can activate it on any later date and still use it for 13 months. So if you plan on purchasing annual passes in the future, and can afford it, buying now would be wise to take advantage of the 13-month window.What if I already purchased theme park tickets?Walt Disney World guests can convert their theme park tickets into annual passes by paying the price difference. But Disney requires the conversion while actually visiting the resort. Walt Disney World does not currently upgrade your tickets by phone or online.That means you’ll need to be visiting between now and January 3, 2017 to do the upgrade in person at a Disney ticket window or guest relations location. A few tips for upgrading tickets:Unused tickets can be upgraded.Tickets that have been used can be upgraded within 14 days of their first use, but must be upgraded before the end of the last day on the ticket.If your ticket includes the Water Park Fun & More option, and any part of that option was used, you can only convert to the Platinum Plus Annual Pass.Is a Tables In Wonderland purchase still worth it?First, for the uninitiated, Tables In Wonderland provides a 20 percent discount on food and beverages (including alcohol) at more than 100 restaurants on Walt Disney World property. Florida residents can get a one-year membership for $175 and Disney Vacation Club members and Passholders pay $150.I previously wrote a blog post looking at the math involved with figuring out the value of Tables In Wonderland. Basically, for those who already have access to dining discounts as a DVC member or a Passholder, it can pose a challenge to recoup the initial outlay to join Tables In Wonderland.And in case you were wondering, no, Disney doesn’t allow you to stack one discount on top of another. If you have a Passholder discount and Tables In Wonderland, you can only use one of them at a time.Even with the new 20 percent discount at 45 restaurants for Passholders, Tables In Wonderland does provide a few benefits. First, the TIW discount carries over to alcohol, while the Passholder discount excludes alcohol. Second, you can find the TIW discount at many more restaurants, including counter service locations at Value Resorts, where Passholders get zero discount. Membership also includes the perk of free valet parking at resorts.In short, if you usually enjoy an adult beverage with your meal and you plan on doing a lot of dining on property, Tables In Wonderland could still pay off. But the calculations are becoming more complicated, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see more Passholders take a pass on it this year.What situations make an annual pass worthwhile?Here’s where this 13-month offer can really pay dividends. If your family travels annually the same week, spring break for example, having an annual pass valid for 13 months gives you two years of vacations.For example, a seven-day adult theme park ticket with the Park Hopper option is $467.54 with tax. A Disney Platinum Pass is $797.69 with tax. So for an additional outlay of around $330, you can take a second vacation a year later. The dangerous part is that you will also be tempted to take a third or fourth vacation during the time in between. It’s not necessarily a bad problem to have.If you want to dig deeper into this topic, here’s a fantastic look at the breakeven point for Annual Passes. The analysis factors in Memory Maker downloads, which cost $149 for advance purchase or $169 when purchasing at the parks. The purchase of an annual pass now includes all those PhotoPass and ride photos. Note that the analysis predates the most recent price increases, but the general idea still holds.In the case of just one trip, a single annual pass for one family member could still save money. In addition to the increased dining and merchandise discounts and Memory Maker, Annual Passholders also get free theme park parking and the opportunity for discounted rates at Disney Resort Hotels. So consider our earlier, weeklong trip scenario. If your total benefits exceed the $330 cost to upgrade to an annual pass, you can still come out ahead.
