The Heidi Chronicles, Starring Elisabeth Moss, Will Close Early

first_img Related Shows The Heidi Chronicles Show Closed This production ended its run on May 3, 2015 View Comments The first Broadway revival of Wendy Wassterstein’s The Heidi Chronicles will play its final performance on May 3, according to The New York Times. The Pam MacKinnon-helmed production stars Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs and Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham. Performances were initially scheduled to run through August 9. At the time of its closing, the production will have played 80 performances at the Music Box Theatre.“We were very well reviewed, and the performances were remarkable, but people didn’t come to see it,” producer Jeffrey Richards told the Times. “Whether it was how crazy busy it was at this time of year or the consumer being asked to choose between so many shows, Heidi Chronicles was not at the top of their list.”The Heidi Chronicles won both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize in 1989. This is the first revival since the original production shuttered in 1990. The show spans over 20 years, following Heidi Holland (Moss) from high school to her career as an art historian and how she copes with feminism, men, politics and motherhood.In addition to Moss, Biggs and Pinkham, the cast includes Tracee Chimo, Ali Ahn, Leighton Bryan, Elise Kibler and Andy Truschinski.Broadway.com customers with tickets to canceled performances will be contacted with information on refunds or exchanges.last_img read more

Fabregas: Arsenal is in my heart

first_img The 26-year-old arrived in north London as a teenager in 2003 and spent eight years with the Gunners, before returning to Catalonia and his boyhood club two years ago for an initial £25.5million after a protracted transfer saga. Fabregas paid an emotional tribute to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger after completing his return home in 2011 and admitted at the time that his failure to lift a trophy as Arsenal captain will always be his “biggest regret”. Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has stressed his love for former club Arsenal and indicated he would consider a future role at the Emirates Stadium – if not during his playing career then after. Speaking in an interview with the Guardian, he said: “Arsenal is in my heart and always will be. I don’t know if I’ll have the opportunity to go back and play there one day, or maybe after football. “It’s a club that is always going to be there and will always open its doors to me. The club’s like a family so, even if it wasn’t as a coach, I’m sure they’d give me the chance to play a role. “Sol (Campbell) is there now. Arsenal help a lot with the formation of coaches. (Dennis) Bergkamp also went there two, three times a week when he was doing his coaching badges. In that sense it’s a lovely club and there might be the chance to do something with them.” Arsenal sit top of the Barclays Premier League after eight games, and Fabregas believes this may well be the season Wenger’s men end a trophy drought which stretches back to 2005 – although he predicts the festive fixtures will be key. “I really hope so,” he said. “They’ve started very well. They look very strong; let’s see how they last. “In the Premier League you can be going well and then you lose two games and you slip away quickly. It’s very sudden. “A lot gets decided over Christmas: the team that hangs in there best, that can resist the best, will take the title.” Arsenal manager Wenger accepted Fabregas was a “special case” when it came to the decision to leave. “Some players were impatient when they get into the 30s, they feel they cannot win the Premier League and they want to go somewhere where they can win it,” said Wenger at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game at Crystal Palace. “Cesc was a special case because he left Barcelona at the age of 16, he’s a Barcelona boy and they had the best team in the world. It was different for him.” Wenger added: “Cesc is usually a good judge and that he will come back one day shows that he has kept good memories of this club. “I am very happy that the players who have his intelligence, his technical ability and knowledge of the game come back one day – I watch them from somewhere up there!” Press Associationlast_img read more
