Pippin comes back to Broadway after an absence of nearly 40 years. So if you are one of those who've
heard others talk about the show, now's your chance to see it for yourself. It's a story about young
royalty, and how a Prince is torn between two very difficult choices. On the one hand lays a simple yet
happy life. On the other is an exciting yet death-defying quest to find the true meaning of to life.
As a selfless sign of loyalty to a King, his young son embraces war, but is then made to see the cruelty
and tyranny in the kingdom. This leads to the unthinkable, ending in the killing of the king, with the
Prince assuming the throne. But there's more to the story. Remorse and guilt follows; a quest for
forgiveness ensues, love, magic, miracles - it's all there. But in the end, the Prince must decide.
So what will it be? Simple happiness, or courageous glory? To find out, you'll need to book your tickets
and see the show for yourself. There's no point reading the reviews or even hearing the blow-by-blow
from a friend. You need to be there, up front and in person. Hear the captivating scores by Stephen
Schwartz, of Godspell and Wicked fame and most recently Tony Award nominee. Enjoy spellbinding
favorites like Corner of the Sky, Glory and Magic to Do.
And now, thanks to the wonders of online ticketing outlets, you'll never have to stand in endless lines
for hours to get your tickets. Simply go online, select your date and presto! Before you know it, your
ticket is being delivered right to your doorstep by Fed Ex.
The director is none other than Diane Paulus, already famous for her 2009, 2012 Tony Award wins for
Best Musical Revival for her previous shows, The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess and Hair. And in its
own right, Pippin has received a stunning 10 Tiny Award nominations for 2013, including Best Musical
Direction for Ms. Paulus, and Best Revival of a Musical, and 3 casting nominations.
With those credentials, you'd not want to miss it this time around. But even if you've seen it earlier,
you'll want to see it again, with its fresh cast, dynamic acrobatic stunts by Les 7 Doigts de la Main of
Traces fame and dazzling choreography.
Critics and fans are raving about it. And with its circus inspired theme, kids will love it. Acrobats jumping
through the air, changing shapes, forms and positions as they fly across the stage. Be warned though,
the skimpy costumes, sexual allusions and unbridled violence, even though in a playful musical setting,
may not be for kids of all ages. None the less, adults will find this 2 and a half hour extravaganza is
worth seeing. So don't miss out on your chance.

The Trip To Bountiful is a Broadway revival of the beloved Horton Foote classic by the same name. What
makes this show different is that it is bountifully studded with Academy Award and Tony-award winners
and nominees, including Cuba Gooding, Jr., Vanessa Williams, Condola Rashad and Cicely Tyson, to
name a few.
This is the story of an aging woman Carrie Watts (played by Cicely Tyson), who harbours a burning desire
to return back to her roots, a small town in Texas called Bountiful, after an absence of over 20 years.
This will be her final trip, and she knows it. All she wants is to see her hometown one last time before
it's too late. But it's not that simple. Her son (played by Cuba Gooding, Jr.) doesn't want her to go.
He's too overprotective of his aging mother. But neither does her daughter-in-law (played by Vanessa
Williams), who is overpowering and dominates everyone around. But both of their concerns are for
completely different reasons, and the play masterfully explores what those reasons are.
On the surface though, this seems like an everyday saga that most aging parents might be faced with
- a yearning to go back to their roots for one final visit. But there are definite undercurrents of much
more. "Bountiful" might be interpreted as an allusion of the Fountain of Youth, which comes across
towards the end of the show in Carrie's blissful and chirpy transformation.
What makes The Trip To Bountiful even more remarkable is the return of Tyson to the stage after a long
3-decades absence. The veteran of many a film and TV hit of the past (such as Roots, The Help, Oldest
Living Confederate Widow Tells All, and Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman) is in her 80's, though some
sources put her closer to 88. Yet she still brings character and grace to her role, forcing the audience to
hang on to her every word.
But the show is also about a family saga that touches us in more ways than one, where a kind, gentle
and caring soul of a son (Ludie) is caught between a feisty mother (Carrie) and a controlling wife (Jessie
Mae). While Ludie's concerns are real, filled with genuine apprehension for his mother's wellbeing,
Jessie Mae's are more "materialistic". She is more worried about losing out on Carrie's regular pension
check that sustains her (Jessie Mae's) generous lifestyle, than about any harm coming to her aging
There's so much more to the show that you have just got to be there in person to appreciate it. And
now, you need not brace long queues and the weather to get your tickets. You can get book online and
have your tickets delivered to your doorstep via Fed Ex. So don't wait another minute!

The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs took a bit longer than many Pens fans thought it would take, but the Penguins were able to hold off a surprisingly good effort from the Islanders and take the series in six. Now, with that initial challenge behind them, they have come flying out of the gate into the second round, defeating the Senators 4 to 1 at home in the first game of the series.
One huge change for the Pens has been in net, where they've turned to Thomas Vokoun after giving up far too many goals to the Islanders. Goaltending is key in the playoffs – just ask teams like the Las Angels Kings, who rode Jonathan Quick's incredible goaltending last year all the way from the 8th seed to the Stanley Cup – and Vokoun seems to be giving the Penguins that net protection that they desperately need. Giving up only one goal in the opener is a great sign, and a lot of it is because of Vokoun's experience. He is 36 years old and his start in Game One was the 713th start of his career.
The Penguins are also getting goals from a wide variety of players, which also helps. The four goals from Game One were scored by Paul Martin, Chris Kunitz, Pascal Dupuis and Evgeni Malkin. Most encouraging was that two of those goals were scored on the power play. The penalty kill has been Ottawa's strength all year, where they were ranked first in the league. If the Penguins can even beat them where they play their best, they should be able to take the series.
If you want to see the Penguins and Senators square off, get your tickets today. Only four games are guaranteed in the series, including one on Friday in Pittsburgh. The next two are on May 19th and May 21st, and both are in Ottawa.

The Pittsburgh Pirates’ Starling Marte is a star in the making.
The 24-year-old left fielder, who made his debut in the major leagues last July, leads the Pirates in batting average through the first 39 games of the season, hitting .314 with five home runs and 17 RBI. A speedster, he has a pair of triples and 10 stolen bases with almost a quarter of the season in the books. He’s just out of the Top 10 in batting average in the National League and fifth in stolen bases.
More significantly, however, Marte has ignited the Pirates’ offense from the leadoff role -- a traditional weak spot for the Bucs, who last year were especially woeful in that spot. With a batting average over .500 in the first inning of the season, Marte, reaching base ahead of Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones, gives the Pirates a shot to establish an early lead.
"Nobody wants to miss the first at-bat of the game," manager Clint Hurdle recently told Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com. "That part of it is incredible. I've never seen anything like this, hitting .600 on the first at-bat of the game as long as he has."
The Pirates signed Marte, a native of the Dominican Republic, as a free agent in 2007. After playing 464 games in the minor leagues, batting .303 with 544 hits and 109 walks, Marte earned the leadoff role for the Bucs.
He’s also helped on defense for the Pirates at PNC Park, where the asymmetrical left field sometimes can prove tricky for outfielders.
Marte might prove the difference for the Pirates this season, who in 2012 got off to a hot start but faded down the stretch. With stability and production finally at the top of Hurdle’s lineup card, thanks to the emergence of Marte, PNC Park will be the place to be throughout the summer.

Orphans was in the news even before it made its debut in the theatre, when co-star Shia LaBeouf
(scheduled to play one of the characters, Treat) lit up the Twitter sphere with gory details about his
spate with Hollywood legend Alec Baldwin (who plays character Harold in the play) and director Daniel
Sullivan. With no room for anyone to be playing prima donna on his stage, Sullivan was quick to re-
cast Ben Foster as Treat, making way for LaBeouf's unceremonious exit from the stage, but without any
applause! The incident did however shine the spotlight, however unwanted it may have been, on the
show and its cast.
Orphans is the story of a pair of orphaned siblings, Philip (played by Tom Sturridge) and Treat (Foster),
who are living in their rather dilapidated Philadelphia family home, as Treat makes a living as a common
thief, taking care of his developmentally challenged brother at the same time. Treat is extremely
protective and overbearing, even somewhat dominant deceitful in his relationship towards his brother.
Philip believes what his brother has told him would happen if he left home - his allergies would get the
better of him and that would be the end of his life! And so, he doesn't leave the house and spends his
days watching TV, and gazing at people passing by the home, while underling interesting words in the
Based on the 1983 play of the same name, by Lyle Kessler, the story takes a new twist when Treat brings
home an unexpected drunken guest - Harold (Baldwin), whom he intends to hold against his will with
intent to earn a handsome payoff from the act. But more importantly, and here's how Harold really gets
rooted into the fabric of the 2 brothers' lives, unknown to Treat, Harold too is an orphan!
More deceitful than Treat, Harold proves to be a tough cookie, pulling a gun on his "kidnaper"
saying "You kidnap a man, the first thing you do is frisk him". And that's where the plot thickens. Little
does Treat suspect that Harold is not just an "ordinary" victim, but a man with a shady past of his own,
who ultimately edges his way into the brothers' lives as a mentor and father-figure.
But before we get ahead of ourselves and reveal the entire plot, let's just say that this is one play that's
worth watching. While Baldwin brings his usual style and panache to Treat's character, it is Sturridge
(of "Pirate Radio" fame) who wows the crowd with his amazing portrayal of Philip's "adult child
discovering the outside world through his window" persona.
You don't want to miss this one at any cost, and you don't have to. Now you can go online and book
your tickets in advance, and have them delivered to your home via Fed Ex. No braving the long queues.
No paying extra fees. And your tickets are guaranteed!

The Broadway rendition of Rock Of Ages depicts the wild rock partying scenes of 1980's LA, and has
a story-line that's ever so popular even in today's world: When big money comes to town, the little
guys don't stand a chance, unless....!. And with them could go the dreams and aspirations of struggling,
lovelorn, star-struck, wanna-be actress Sherrie (played by Kelli Barrett), and her wanna-be rocker
boyfriend (and part-time club mop and bucket hauler!) Drew, (played by Constantine Maroulis, of 'The
Wedding Singer" and American Idol fame).

Wesley Taylor) blows into town with dreams and aspirations of their own: To transform Sunset Strip and
reinvent its image. Obviously profit is the motive!

once the developers have realized their vision? And will the struggling duo make in the rock scene? And
will they find the love and happiness that the pair is so desperately in search of?

dreams, love, happiness and determination to succeeded, as it is a tribute to the big rockers, their rock
groups, their bands, and most especially their music. And this is one show that you don't want to miss!
The live band recitals, co-mingled with exquisitely executed karaoke routines give audiences an energy-
packed 2 hours of nostalgic performance down memory lane. You'll be thrilled with nearly 30 rock hits

Kinky Boots was nominated for a stunning 13 awards at the 67th Tony Award presentation, making it a "must see" for any theatre aficionado this year. With musical scores by singer,
actress, songwriter Cyndi Lauper (of the 80's hit 'She's so Unusual', as well as Billboard Hot 100 hits like 'Girls just Want to Have Fun'), this stirring tale of despair-turned-to-hope, has now been recognized for what it is - a truly awesome show that you won't want to miss!
Based on a book by author Harvey Fierstein, and a 2005 British motion picture of the same name, the Jerry Mitchell directed show is about a real-life footwear manufacturing factory that sees its fortunes hang in the balance until saved by an unusual character.
The gist of the Kinky Boots story line is that Charlie Price (played by Stark Sands) is an apparent "successful heir" to a renowned, downward-spiraling, money-losing Northampton shoe
factory. But his heart is not in the family business, and he yearns to escape to the hustle and bustle and upward mobility of life in London. Sadly for Charlie, his father (played by Stephen Berger) suddenly passes away, and that puts paid to Charlie's dreams of the "good life" in London.
Charlie is torn between letting the family business die a natural death, or jumping in with both feet to try and revive it. He's lost, confused, looking for spiritual guidance when inspiration comes in the form
of a drag queen named Lola (played by Billy Porter). Through this chance encounter, Lola is the key to making Charlie believe in himself. She makes him realize that there's more to the shoe business than
meets the eye. Charlie realizes, thanks to Lola's inspiration, that there's a huge market for footwear for cross-dressers like Lola.
Now that you know the gist of this soul lifting drama, it's time for you to see the real thing. With an unparalleled nomination for 13 upcoming Tony Awards, this is a play that critics and audience are raving about. And if you intend to see just one play this year, then this is it!

The Pittsburgh Steelers hope they stocked up in the recent NFL Draft on the next generation of players who one day will take over Heinz Field.
Addressing needs for a pass-rushing linebacker and a steady ball carrier, the Steelers selected linebacker Jarvis Jones of Georgia and running back Le’Veon Bell from Michigan State with their first two picks. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin will give both a chance to show him in off-season mini-camps and training camp that they deserve a spot in the starting lineup on Sept. 8, when the Steelers open the 2013 season at home against the Tennessee Titans.
Also expected to contend for immediate playing time is Markus Wheaton, a wide receiver from Oregon State. While draft analysts thought the Steelers might pursue a tight end in this spot, the Steelers have a hole to fill for wide receiver, with longtime standout Mike Wallace departing for Miami via free agency. By joining veteran receivers Plaxico Burress and Jerricho Cotchery, who will be 36 and 31, respectively, at the season’s start, Wheaton gives the Steelers youth and speed.
Pittsburgh used its subsequent draft picks to add depth behind an aging core of veteran players at other positions. Safety Shamarko Thomas, taken in the fourth round out of Syracuse, likely is the heir apparent to Troy Polamalu, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection. Their second pick in that round, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones, provides a youthful backup to two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, 31, who has started all 16 regular-season games only once in his nine-year career.
The Steelers rounded out their draft by selecting Illinois cornerback Terry Hawthorne in the fifth round; Oklahoma wide receiver Justin Brown and Florida State linebacker Vince Williams in the sixth round; and defensive tackle Nick Williams on Samford in the seventh and final round.

It's a testament to the strength of the NHL that even first-round match-ups are hard to predict anymore. The Pittsburgh Penguins were supposed to blow through the New York Islanders like there was nothing standing in their way. Sydney Crosby even came back to lead his team toward the Stanley Cup. However, the series is four games old – when some experts predicted it would be over – and the Penguins and Islanders are tied 2-2.
Instead of a route, this series has featured some of the most intense action that has been seen all year. Tuesday's Game Four concluded with a score of 6-4, so there was plenty of scoring from both sides. The game even ended with Malkin throwing punches in the corner. If you want to see hockey the way it was meant to be played, you need to be at these games.
There was a scary moment for Pens fans in the first period, when a puck was deflected up into Crosby's neck, looking almost exactly like the injury that sidelined him for weeks. It was unlucky, but Crosby skated away from it and was not hurt, only missing a shift or two. The good news is that he still apparently has nerves of steel. Just weeks removed from that broken jaw, he was standing in and trying to block shots just like the tough leader that the Pens need him to be.
If you thought this series was going to be over quickly, that it was going to be boring, think again. It's shaping up to be the best first-round series of the year. Game Five will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday, the puck for Game Six drops on Saturday in New York, and Game Seven, if needed, will be played back in Pittsburgh the next day on Sunday, rather than after the traditional day off. Get your tickets now.

What a beautiful May!
The Pirates return to PNC Park this week, kicking off a month that will see the Bucs play 18 of their 28 games on their home field. First up: a five-game homestand beginning Friday, May 3, with three games against the Washington Nationals, followed by a day off and then the Seattle Mariners coming to town for a pair.
Both series promise to be hot tickets as they mark the only visits to PNC Park from Washington and Seattle this season. The probable starters for Saturday’s game are Jeff Locke (3-1) for the Pirates and hard-throwing righty Stephen Strasburg for the Nationals. Strasburg, the No. 1 selection in the 2009 Major League Baseball draft, is off to an uncharacteristically slow start this season, posting just a 1-4 record thus far. In 37.1 innings on the mound, he has struck out 36 batters but surrendered 33 hits.
The Nationals also feature Bryce Harper, 20, the first pick of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft. After a short stint in the minor leagues, Harper was called up to the parent club last year and was named 2012 National League Rookie of the Year.
The Mariners come to PNC Park sitting third in the American League West, behind Texas and Oakland and ahead of Los Angeles and Houston. They are led by Felix Hernandez, the 27-year-old Venezuelan who won the 2010 American League Cy Young Award. Through his first six starts of 2013, Hernandez had posted a 3-2 record, with an ERA of 1.90, striking out 44 batters in 42.2 innings of work.
After a quick four-game trip to Citi Field to meet the New York Mets next week, the Pirates will return to PNC Park on April 13 for 10 games against National League Central rivals Milwaukee and Chicago as well as the Houston Astros.
