View Comments Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today.Jennifer Holliday Will Lead The Color PurpleTony winner Jennifer Holliday will headline a three-city-tour of The Color Purple. The Dreamgirls star revealed on her Facebook page that she’ll take on the role of Sofia in the tuner, starting performances next week in Detroit. This production is not to be confused with director John Doyle’s version, which is co-produced by Oprah, although of course we’d love to see Holliday leading that one too.Mrs Henderson Presents Aims for the West End?This musical surely has to be West End-bound, not least for its tagline: “For the show to go on the clothes must come off!” The stage adaptation of cult film Mrs Henderson Presents will play the U.K.’s Theatre Royal Bath August 14, 2015 through September 5 and officially open on August 26. The tuner has a stellar creative team: book and direction by Tony winner Terry Johnson (La Cage aux Folles), with lyrics by Tony winner Don Black (Sunset Boulevard) and music by George Fenton (The Judas Kiss) and Simon Chamberlain (Love Actually). No word yet on casting—the movie famously starred Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins.Ian McIntosh & More Tapped for West End’s BeautifulSome kind of wonderful additional casting for the West End production of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Ian McIntosh will star as Barry Mann, while Vivien Carter, Ed Currie, Oliver Lidert, Fela Lufadeju, Tanya Nicole-Edwards, Terel Nugent, Jay Perry, Tanisha Spring, Lucy St. Louis, Danielle Steers, Dylan Turner and Joanna Woodwood will play iconic musical performers and band members of the era. The previously announced Katie Brayben will lead the production as King, which will now officially open on February 24, 2015.Megan Mullally Talks B’way, Surgery & MoreIt’s Only a Play’s Megan Mullally recently stopped by The Wendy Williams Show. The adorable Will & Grace star (and flight attendant favorite) talked her hubby Nick Offerman, Broadway, plastic surgery and more. Check out the interview below. Jennifer Holliday Watch Out Canadian Little Old Ladies: Drabinsky’s BackGarth Drabinsky, the Canadian theatrical impresario who landed up in jail for fraud, is not letting his criminal record stand in the way of producing another show. The New York Post reports that he is planning on bringing Madame Sousatzka to Toronto’s Elgin Theatre. The stage adaptation, possibly by Richard Maltby, would be based on the 1988 Shirley MacLaine movie, which Drabinsky produced. Sounds like any little old ladies out there need to beware. Star Files
By Rajiv BisnauthA TOTAL team effort was the key ingredient in Guyana’s five-wicket win over the Windward Islands on Sunday in the final of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Under-19 tournament, claims captain Travis Persaud. Speaking to media operatives yesterday after the team’s arrival at the Eugene F. Correia International Airport, Persaud lauded his players for their commitment and hard work throughout the game and more so the entire tournament.“This win was a total team effort in every way. We did well in all departments and the way we executed our plans also contributed well for our success. As I said before we departed Guyana knowing that we have a strong team in order to defend our titles.“We didn’t perform so well in the three-day, but we bounced back nicely in the one-day,” Persaud said.Persaud credited the entire team for their performance but acknowledged that the senior players were their main weapons for success.“Everybody did their part, everyone did what was expected of them, everybody acted in the capacity they were chosen to act on, and everybody gave a hundred percent, and in the end we came out successful,” Persaud pointed out.Also on hand to congratulate the players were Director of Sport Christopher Jones, president of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Drubahadur, Marketing manager Raj Singh, chairman of the GCB’s Competitions Committee Colin Europe and chairman of the senior selectors Rayon Griffith.Jones in his remarks congratulated the team for their success on behalf on the Guyana government and by extension the National Sport Commission (NSC).The Director of Sport urged the players to continue the winning habit, adding that their success is a demonstration that the efforts of their trainer and coaches have definitely paid the dividends.He implored the youngsters to continue to be humble, and at the same time continue to develop as Guyanese best cricketers, with the ultimate aim to represent the West Indies.Drubahadur lauded the players for their success.Guyana finished second in the points standing at the end of the seven-team round-robin series. In an invited comment coach Adrian Amsterdam indicated that the players were determined to play as true champions.He added “It was a very professional performance. If you look at the whole tournament then, everyone did contribute: the bowlers bowled well, there were some good batting innings, and the fielding was good too.”“So credit goes to the entire bunch of boys for their professional approach. I always believed that we had the talent to finish on top,” Amsterdam pointed out.The Guyanese were dethroned by Trinidad and Tobago in the three-day competition.
