Two larger-than-life shows set for HMT

Two larger-than-life shows set for HMT

A giant green ogre and a big girl with a big dream are two larger-than-life characters heading for the stage at His Majesty’s Theatre (HMT). 

Shrek will have a two-week run at the city theatre from February 28 to March 11, 2018 with Hairspray following shortly after, from March 19 to 24.

APA chief executive Jane Spiers said: “Shrek and Hairspray are two smash-hit musicals that we’re absolutely delighted to have returning to our theatre. Both are full of warmth and hilarity and will have you rooting for the underdog in each story.”

Bringing to life the hilarious tale of the swamp-dwelling ogre who becomes the most unlikely hero, Shrek is a story of friendship and love with plenty of comedy thrown in. Join Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits, and a biscuit with attitude, and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! 

And just a week after Shrek leaves HMT, musical theatre fans can let their hair down and have some fun with irresistible feel-good show Hairspray, featuring the iconic songs Good Morning Baltimore, The new Girl in Town, You Can’t Stop the Beat and of course, title track Hairspray. It’s Baltimore 1962, where Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, is on a mission to follow her dreams and dance her way onto national TV. Tracy’s audition makes her a local star and soon she is using her new-found fame to fight for equality, bagging local heartthrob Link Larkin along the way.

Hairspray is based on the 1988 film of the same name which starred Divine and Ricki Lake by cult filmmaker John Waters. With music and lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and book by Mark O’Donnell and Thomas Meehan, Hairsprayoriginally opened to rave reviews on Broadway in 2002 and subsequently won eight Tony Awards. The production opened in London at the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2007 and won four Laurence Olivier Awards including Best New Musical. Proving to be an international success, the showhas also opened in South Africa, Japan, South Korea, China and Dubai. Following the musical’s phenomenal success on stage, a film of the musical was released in 2007 which starred John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer and James Marsden.

Producer Mark Goucher said: “I am incredibly proud of this production of Hairspray and thrilled that it will be travelling the country again. The universal appeal of this heartwarming show has continued to delight us all, with families and musical theatre lovers alike packing out theatres night after night.”

Tickets for both shows are on sale to general bookers on Tuesday, February 28, and you can snap up tickets early by taking out an APA Friends membership. Tickets are on sale to APA Friends from Thursday, February 23.

Manfred said he didn't know that the Marlins' new owners planned to tear it washington nationals jersers down
In the early moments of atlanta braves jersers the interview, Le Batard asked Manfred whether he knew prior to the recent sale to the group oakland athletics jersers fronted by Bruce Sherman and Jeter whether the new owners planned to slash payroll. After some prodding (and Le Batard's saying that the commissioner was lying), Manfred answered, "We do not get involved in operating-level decisions in the ownership approval process."

"We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that has been in the ownership miami marlins jersers process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared by us or approved by us. ... Those are local decisions that really are not part of the approval process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared with us or approved by us."

Manfred went on to say that he didn't receive a payroll plan from the Marlins until two days prior to his interview with Le Batard. More: "We don't get into, are you going to trade 'Player X' or 'Player Y' at a particular point in time, nor do we ask them to make a commitment to people before they even got in and made an evaluation of their talent level, their ability to win with the people that st. louis cardinals jersers they have. That's just not how the ownership process works."

But some of that may not be true
Here's a key excerpt from a los angeles angels of anaheim jersers must-read Barry Jackson piece in the Miami Herald:

A source directly involved in the Marlins sales chicago white sox jersers process, after hearing the Le Batard cincinnati reds jersers interview, said, via text: "Commissioner said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders.

"Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called chicago white sox jersers on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. Widely circulated."

First off, "Project Wolverine" is ludicrously self-important and sinister-sounding, as budget strategies go. That's the name of a secret NSA laboratory deep under the Caballo Mountains in New Mexico, not a financial schematic. Do better, Jeets. Anyhow, there's enough careful phrasing in Manfred's comments ("operating-level decisions," "'Player X' or 'Player Y'") to give him some plausible deniability. However, the idea that he didn't know about plans to engage in yet another demo job by Marlins owners strains credulity.

The free agent departures continue to pile up in New England, even though free agency doesn’t actually begin until 4 p.m. today. Read According to NFL Network left tackle NIKE NFL Nate Solder has decided to sign with the New York Giants. Read


Solder was considered the best and pretty much only high-end left tackle in the free agent market. The former first-round pick and veteran of seven NFL seasons has started 95 of 98 games in his career, cheap jerseys wholesale including all 31 he played over the last two seasons. Read Solder reportedly got four years and $60 million from the Giants. Read


The loss leaves a huge hole on the New England offensive line. Detroit Lions Jersey The team’s top backups from the last couple seasons, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle, are also free agents and neither would seem to be in line for the job anyway. St.Louis Rams Jersey New England does have a couple young players in 2017 third-round pick Tony Garcia and undrafted rookie Andrew Jelks. But Garcia missed his rookie season to reported blood clots that landed him on NFI, while Jelks has missed three-straight years with a twice-torn ACL that ended his career at Vanderbilt.

OnCheap Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Friday, Big Deutz - Bryant parted ways with the Dallas Cowboys. Even though Dez continued to reduce Global Jerseys Wholesale production as he ages in the past few years, the eight-year veteran who cut down on the "American team" still let fans debate and enter the free market, and people are guessing that Deze's next stop. Where will it be.New Products
Deez BryantWorld Cup 2018 is very dissatisfied with the practice of the Cowboys. He has been well-trained in the off-season and is only able to play better for the next season.Bundesliga Jerseys Originally they could cut off Detz earlier, but they did not, which made Deez passive in the free market. On Tuesday, Deze told reporters that he wouldShop All Products be happy to stay in the East area of ??the League of Nations. In this case, he would have the opportunity to play against the cowboy twice a Other Teamsyear. He hopes that his old club will achieve revenge. Deez also said that the New York Giants attracted him, especially their offensive team. "The Giants'Premier League offseason lineup is relatively intact and I think they will give OBJ a suitable offer, so Beckham will definitely stay here.
In addition to hisLa Liga offense, there are also Sterling Shepard, near-fielder Irwin Ingram, and Eli Manning. Heaven! This is crazy! "These were followed by Deez and added:" If they takeLigue 1 away Sarkwan Barkley of Penn State in the draft, the offensive team is just as beautiful. "The ideal is full, but the reality is very skinny. If the Giants use BucketNFL Jerseys 2 to pick Buckley, their offensive team would be enough even if they didn't have Deez. The reason for signing him may be that the team needs red zone offensive NHL Jerseysweapons." This is why Deez didn't mention Brandon Marshall when he talked about the Giants offensive team. Last season, Marshall only played for the Giants in fiveNBA Jerseys games and then went on a free-fighting game. If the Giants really signed Dees, then Marshall had a lot. It may become a victim.
In addition to the Giants, Dez NCAA JerseysBryant has a decent interest in several teams, including Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and 49 San Francisco players. So what are the teams he does not Nike NFLwant to go? Green Bay Packers, Deez thinks the team "had too many stories with him." "Green Bay may not be able to deal with me." Deitz pointed out that in the 2015Nike NFL Jerseys postseason, the Cowboys and packers met in a narrow way. In the crucial moment of the fourth quarter, Deez Bryant made a new first pass by passing TonyAuthentic Jerseys Romo in the fourth gear to advance the ball to the yard 1 yard ahead of the packer.
At this time, Packer coach MikeWomen Jerseys McCarthy put forward a challenge. After the referee watched the video, he decided that the receiving ball was invalid, which made Deez very dissatisfied. If theYouth Jerseys ball is placed in the 2018 season, the penalty is definitely another result. Excluding Aaron Rogers's factors, Dez didn't like packers. For Dez Bryant, he does Shop By National Team not want to see the current situation, because he can get at least 12.5 million US dollars to stay in the cowboy, and into the free market will greatly reduce their own value. In recent years, Dez's data is not very beautiful. Coupled with age, the peak period has passed. It may be difficult for Deze's wish list to take place.
