Closing Time! Don’t Miss These Eight Fabulous Broadway Shows

Posted on

first_img Pippin Closing January 4 at the Music Box Theatre There are only a few more weeks of magic to do, so make some time to see the acrobats and contortionists of this circus-inspired, Tony-winning musical revival. Join young prince Pippin as he goes on his dangerous journey, encouraged by a mysterious group of performers led by a Leading Player. Throwing swords, unicycles, a flying trapeze and Stephen Schwartz tunes: need we say more? Click for tickets! Once Closing January 4 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre Sigh–the lights are coming on in Broadway’s favorite music-filled Irish pub. This infectious, romantic, Tony-winning musical stars some of the finest actor-musicians on Broadway, so come for the stunning music (including Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly”), but stay for the bittersweet love story. You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here (even though we know you want to!). Click for tickets! The Real Thing Closing January 4 at the American Airlines Theatre Let us lay this one out for you: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ewan McGregor and Cynthia Nixon are burning up a Broadway stage right now, together, in a play by Tom Stoppard. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? This A-list love triangle is wrapping up its limited engagement in just a few weeks, so break out that holiday check from Grammy and get real. Click for tickets! Motown the Musical Closing January 18 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre Did you know that time travel has been invented, and for only the cost of a Broadway ticket? Head down to Motown the Musical and go back to the 1960s, when music visionary Berry Gordy changed the course of cultural history. Gordy launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and so many more. Click for tickets! Rock of Ages Closing January 18 at the Helen Hayes Theatre Get out those lighters—it’s time for the hardest rockin’ show on Broadway to play its last power ballad. Head back to the Sunset Strip one last time, into a club where long-haired rockers rule, ’80s hits never stop and Lycra outfits are always in full force. We may have to say goodbye, but we will never, ever stop believing. Click for tickets! This Is Our Youth Closing January 4 at the Cort Theatre Even though we knew our time with this limited engagement was well, limited, it’s always a heartbreaker to see a good thing come to an end (much like youth, are we right?). But don’t worry, you still have time to catch this incredible trio of Broadway newcomers—Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson—as a trio of spoiled, angsty New York teens adrift in the 1980s. Click for tickets!center_img Cinderella Closing January 3 at the Broadway Theatre Is it almost midnight? Because this ball is coming to an end. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s take on the classic fairy tale has been delighting audiences for over 750 performances, and everyone’s favorite tale of glass slippers, wicked stepmothers and happily-ever-afters will close out with stage and screen star Keke Palmer as Ella, and Real Housewives’ Nene Leakes as Madame. Click for tickets! January may be all about “out with the old, in with the new,” but we’re still seriously sad to see a wonderful bunch of Broadway shows go! You only have a few more weeks to catch Cinderella, Pippin, Side Show, Once, This is Our Youth, The Real Thing, Motown and Rock of Ages. Get your tickets before these shows say goodbye to the Great White Way for good! Side Show Closing January 4 at the St. James Theatre We were going to make an “I Will Never Leave You” joke but let’s be real, we’re just too broken up about this brilliant reimagined revival closing to make it work. Erin Davie and Emily Padgett are blowing the roof off the St. James Theatre as conjoined twins Violet and Daisy Hilton, searching for love (and loving one another) as they rise from side show attractions to stars…it makes us well up just thinking about it.

La Liga: Atletico draw with Sevilla ahead of Liverpool showdown

first_imgRead Also: Liverpool three wins from EPL title after comeback win against BournemouthTrippier kicked through the back of Ocampos, who made no mistake with the spot-kick, ensuring the game hung in the balance at half-time.Trippier himself required treatment from physios following a hefty challenge from Guidelj and while the full-back continued, he never looked entirely comfortable thereafter.Atletico were the ones pushing hardest for a winner but Vitolo ballooned a loose ball over the bar and Saul Niguez headed wide at the back post. They will have to be more clinical at Anfield. Joao Felix looked as sharp at the Wanda Metropolitano as he has done all season and completed a four-minute comeback for Atletico after Alvaro Morata’s penalty cancelled out Luuk de Jong’s opener for Sevilla.But Lucas Ocampos levelled with another penalty at the end of a pulsating first half, again with the help of VAR after a foul by Kieran Trippier, whose involvement at Anfield on Wednesday could be in doubt.Trippier took treatment after a heavy challenge from Nemanja Gudelj in the second half and while he finished the game, the full-back appeared restricted in his movement.The draw will be more gratefully received by Sevilla, who sit third in La Liga and two points ahead of Atletico, who are fifth after missing an opportunity to close the gap.Yet while the top four is by no means a guarantee for Diego Simeone’s side, the Champions League has assumed even greater importance with La Liga’s title race firmly out of reach.Since their surprise 1-0 home win over Liverpool earlier this month, Atletico have struggled to sustain momentum, having beaten Villarreal, drawn away at struggling Espanyol and now been held by Sevilla.But they are full of hope, after welcoming back key players from injury and watching from afar as Jurgen Klopp’s side have endured a rocky couple of weeks in England.Felix’s performance will have been especially encouraging, the Portugese capping an excellent display with his second goal in three games since returning from a month out and now looking likely to start against Liverpool.Diego Costa is also fit again and would be a more conservative option if Simeone opts for physicality over creativity alongside Morata, who scored his first goal in eight weeks.Sevilla’s coach Julen Lopetegui was whistled by Atletico’s fans before kick-off for his brief spell at Real last season and he has been under pressure from his own fans too after a disappointing few weeks.Yet De Jong put Sevilla in the 19th minute when he fooled Stefan Savic into an attempted interception by taking Joan Jordan’s pass on his back foot, before firing past Jan Oblak.But a frantic end to the half saw Atletico score twice in four minutes as Morata converted a penalty after the ball was adjudged to have hit Diego Carlos on the shoulder and then Felix drove in after being picked out by Koke.The lead lasted only seven minutes as Sevilla drew level before half-time. Oblak managed to scoop out Jordan’s header at the near post but VAR showed Kieran Trippier to have fouled Ocampos in the chaos that followed.
