Andrew Rannells to Replace Neil Patrick Harris in Hedwig

first_img Neil Patrick Harris View Comments Rannells received a Tony nod for his performance as Elder Price in The Book of Mormon. He’s also appeared on the Great White Way in Jersey Boys and Hairspray. His screen credits include Girls, The New Normal and Bachelorette. Rannells played Hedwig in another production back in 2001 and in 2011 sang “The Origin of Love,” below, at Joe’s Pub. Related Shows Tony nominee Andrew Rannells has some high heels to fill as he takes over from Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris in John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Rannells will play a limited engagement August 20 through October 12 at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre. Harris’ last show is set for August 17. Directed by Michael Mayer, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a fictional rock ‘n’ roll band, fronted by Hedwig (Harris), a transgender woman from communist East Berlin. Between rock songs, Hedwig regales the audience with both humorous and painful stories about her life, including her botched sex change operation. The score includes “Tear Me Down,” “Wig in a Box,” “Wicked Little Town,” “The Origin of Love,” “Angry Inch” and more. The cast also includes Tony winner Lena Hall as Yitzhak; no word yet on whether she’ll be continuing on in the role.

Gators’ Noah loves hate mail

first_imgGAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida forward Joakim Noah walked around campus early this week with a stack of fan mail. Anything in there from Kentucky? How does he feel about it? “I love it,” Noah said. He also feeds off it. Noah has played a pivotal role in raising Florida’s energy level the last two seasons, especially away from home. He yells, screams, thumps his chest after big baskets and waves his arms at the crowd. Although his actions usually get himself and his teammates hyped, he also riles opposing fans and draws their ire. At Kentucky last year, fans chanted, “Noah’s a girl.” At Vanderbilt last season and at Auburn last month, they mocked him with cries of “ugly.” At Florida State in December, one sign read, “Noah got mono from kissing Brewer,” a reference to Noah showing symptoms of mononucleosis while teammate and roommate Corey Brewer sat out two games with the viral infection. What has been the worst? “When they start talking about your mom and your girlfriend,” said Noah, whose mother, Cecilia Rhode, was named Miss Sweden in 1978. “They wouldn’t say that to my face. It’s so easy to just talk trash when you’re in the crowd. It’s fine. It’s part of the game.” Noah checked his Facebook page last weekend and found countless groups created just to tease and criticize him. “I got a lot of Kentucky hate mail right now,” Noah said. “I don’t know what it is. I’m getting a lot of attention, though.” But why? Maybe it’s because of his famous father, former tennis player Yannick Noah. Maybe it’s because he was named Most Outstanding Player of the Minneapolis Regional and the Final Four last year. Maybe it has something to do with his awkward shooting style or his chest-pounding antics. Then again, maybe it’s the ponytail. “Just look at him,” Brewer said. “He’s outspoken and he’s the best target if you look at our team. Who would you target? I think he feeds off it.” Noah is averaging 13 points and 8.2 rebounds this season, and has a team-high 43 blocks. Although his numbers are slightly better at home, he believes it has nothing to do with the persistent ribbing he endures on the road. “It’s such a circus,” Noah said. “It really feels like that.” Having one player receive the brunt of the attention is nothing new for coach Billy Donovan. After all, he believes former player Matt Walsh – with his curly blonde hair and headband – was harassed more than Noah. “Different guys on your team are going to get attention on the road,” Donovan said. “I think he’s handled it well. I think he’s been pretty focused.” Noah often jokes that opposing fans hurt his feelings. In reality, though, the added attention makes the game more enjoyable – especially if the Gators win and silence the hecklers. Noah has been known to respond to them – sometimes with smiles, winks or nods. He even mocked UCLA fans sitting near the court in last year’s championship game by blowing kisses to the Bruins dancers. “He enjoys it,” Brewer said. “He might not say it, but it gets his mojo going.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!center_img “No, that (would be) hate mail,” Noah said. “It’s a little different. I’m pretty much hated everywhere except for Gainesville. That’s just the way it is I guess.” The 6-foot-11 junior gets more attention than any of his teammates on the road – most of it negative. He’s sure to get harassed when the top-ranked Gators (22-2, 9-0 Southeastern Conference) play at No. 20 Kentucky (18-5, 7-2) on Saturday. last_img read more

POLAND/UKRAINE 2012: IS SEAMUS COLEMAN JUST TOO GOOD FOR TRAP?

first_imgHE was a nominee for young player of the year in England just a few months ago.And some soccer pundits in the English press reckon he’s work €7M if another club wanted to take his services from Everton.But Killybegs lad Seamus Coleman didn’t even make the bench at Lansdowne Road for the play-off clash with Estonia. Some pundits here – including Eamonn Dunphy – are asking the question: “Does Giovanni Trapattoni want skillful players in his particular system of play?”Johnny Giles and Liam Brady appeared to agree on RTE’s coverage of the match.Seamus himself is too honest to talk about it all.But his delight at the team’s qualification for Euro 2012 must be tinged with worry when he didn’t make the bench for the Estonia games. Let’s hope Trap follows Mr Dunphy’s advice…and makes sure he’s on the plane to eastern Europe next year.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily POLAND/UKRAINE 2012: IS SEAMUS COLEMAN JUST TOO GOOD FOR TRAP? was last modified: November 15th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:POLAND/UKRAINE 2012: IS SEAMUS COLEMAN JUST TOO GOOD FOR TRAP?last_img read more

Shoulder CT scan

first_imgDefinitionA computed tomography (CT) scan of the shoulder is an imaging method that uses x-rays to create cross-sectional pictures of the shoulder.Alternative NamesCAT scan – shoulder; Computed axial tomography scan – shoulder; Computed tomography scan – shoulder; CT scan – shoulderHow the test is performedYou will be asked to lie on a narrow table that slides into the center of the CT scanner.Once you are inside the scanner, the machines x-ray beam rotates around you. (Modern “spiral” scanners can perform the exam without stopping.)A computer creates separate images of the shoulder area, called slices. These images can be stored, viewed on a monitor, or printed on film. Three-dimensional models of the shoulder area can be created by adding the slices together.You must be still during the exam, because movement causes blurred images. You may be told to hold your breath for short periods of time.The scan should take only 10-15 minutes.How to prepare for the testCertain exams require a special dye, called contrast, to be delivered into the body before the test starts. Contrast helps certain areas show up better on the x-rays.Contrast can be given through a vein (IV) in your hand or forearm. If contrast is used, you may also be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4-6 hours before the test.Let your doctor know if you have ever had a reaction to contrast. You may need to take medications before the test in order to safely receive this substance.Before receiving the contrast, tell your health care provider if you take the diabetes medication metformin (Glucophage) because you may need to take extra precautions.If you weigh more than 300 pounds, find out if the CT machine has a weight limit. Too much weight can cause damage to the scanners working parts.advertisementYou will be asked to remove jewelry and wear a hospital gown during the study.How the test will feelSome people may have discomfort from lying on the hard table.Contrast given through an IV may cause a slight burning sensation, a metallic taste in the mouth, and a warm flushing of the body. These sensations are normal and usually go away within a few seconds.Why the test is performedCT rapidly creates detailed pictures of the shoulder. The test may help diagnose or detect:A dislocation, fracture, or other shoulder injuryEvaluate the soft tissue such as rotator cuff tendonsAbscess or infectionThe cause of pain or other problems in the shoulder joint when MRI cannot be doneMasses and tumors, including cancerThis test may also help guide a surgeon to the right area during a biopsy in the shoulder area.Normal ValuesResults are considered normal if the shoulder being examined is normal in appearance.What abnormal results meanAbnormal results may be due to:Abscess (collection of pus)Bone tumors or cancerDislocated shoulderShoulder fractureWhat the risks areRisks of CT scans include:Being exposed to radiationAllergic reaction to contrast dyeCT scans do expose you to more radiation than regular x-rays. Having many x-rays or CT scans over time may increase your risk for cancer. However, the risk from any one scan is small. You and your doctor should weigh this risk against the benefits of getting a correct diagnosis for a medical problem.Some people have allergies to contrast dye. Let your doctor know if you have ever had an allergic reaction to injected contrast dye.The most common type of contrast given into a vein contains iodine. If a person with an iodine allergy is given this type of contrast, nausea or vomiting, sneezing, itching, or hives may occur.If you absolutely must be given such contrast, your doctor may give you antihistamines (such as Benadryl) or steroids before the test.The kidneys help remove iodine out of the body. Those with kidney disease or diabetes may need to receive extra fluids after the test to help flush the iodine out of the body.Rarely, the dye may cause a life-threatening allergic response called anaphylaxis. If you have any trouble breathing during the test, you should notify the scanner operator immediately. Scanners come with an intercom and speakers, so the operator can hear you at all times.ReferencesDeLee JC, Drez D Jr, Miller MD, eds. DeLee and Drez?s Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. 3rd ed.
