Roundabout to Present New Works by Joshua Harmon & More Off-Broadway

first_img Roundabout Theatre Company has announced four new plays to premiere off-Broadway in its 2017-18 season. Among the titles are world premieres by Joshua Harmon, whose play Significant Other (which played at Roundabout’s off-Broadway space in 2015) will open on Broadway this spring, and Lindsey Ferrentino, the playwright of Ugly Lies the Bone (another work to premiere with the company).The season kicks off on September 28 with the New York premiere of Anna Ziegler’s The Last Match. The play follows two tennis greats going head-to-head at the U.S. Open: an all-American favorite and the hot-shot newcomer who’s hesitant to compete against his idol. The production, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, will open officially on October 24 and run through December 24.Next comes Ferrentino’s Amy and the Orphans, running from February 1, 2018 through April 22. Scott Ellis will direct the play, which follows two siblings who reunite with their sister living with Down Syndrome after the death of their father. Opening night is set for March 1.Harmon’s Skintight, beginning May 24, reunites Harmon with Bad Jews director Daniel Aukin. The new play centers around Jodi, who turns to her famous fashion designer dad after her ex-husband becomes engaged to a much younger woman. To her surprise, he now lives with 20-year-old Trey—who, though not necessarily gay, is likely a gay porn star (at least, according to Jodi’s son). The production will open on June 21 and run through August 26.Roundabout’s Underground season will begin with Jiréh Breon Holder’s Too Heavy For Your Pocket. The play, set in Nashville in 1961, follows a 20-year-old who gives up his college scholarship to join the Freedom Riders. A director and dates—as well as a second Roundabout Underground title, will be announced at a later date.The Last Match, Amy and the Orphans and Skintight will play the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, while Too Heavy For Your Pocket will play the black box space below.

Danish pension fund outsources all asset management to BlackRock

first_imgThe Danish pension fund for pharmaconomists (Pensionskassen for Farmakonomer) has decided to outsource all of its asset management to US manager BlackRock in a deal it says will make it easier to be a small pension fund in Denmark.The DKK10bn (€1.34bn) pension fund said BlackRock’s ability to help it meet increased regulatory reporting demands had been almost as important in sealing the deal as its ability to generate returns and keep costs down.Pharmaconomists are professionals in Denmark who are qualified experts in pharmaceuticals.Peter Bache Vognbjerg, chief executive of the 7,600-member pension fund, said: “Cooperation with BlackRock serves several purposes.” First of all, the pension fund believes BlackRock will be able to provide a stable high yield for its members and reduce costs.“Nearly as important, however, is BlackRock’s ability to help us continue to meet the increased reporting requirements laid upon us by the authorities,” Bache Vognbjerg said, adding that this had also been an important factor in the fund’s choice of asset manager.He said that, as a small scheme, the pension fund for pharmaconomists had to meet the same regulatory requirements demanded of big pension providers.“This is the reason why we have chosen to ally with one of the best in the business in both asset and risk management, in order to continue to be able to meet these requirements,” he said.Peter Beske Nielsen, head of BlackRock’s business in the Nordic countries, said the asset manager was grateful for the trust the pension fund was putting in it.“Outsourcing all or parts of asset management and risk management is more common in countries like Holland, but we are also experiencing growing interest from Danish pension funds and insurance companies,” he said.Denmark’s independent labour-market pension funds have come under pressure in recent years to merge with larger commercial pension providers, particularly because of more onerous reporting and reserve level demands from regulators.The then-chairman of the pharmaconomists’ pension fund Susanne Engstrøm said in April last year that the fund would not merge with a big commercial provider, in reaction to an invitation from PFA for smaller pension funds to merge with it.She said this was not more than could be managed even by small organisations, even though a regulatory inspection did put pressure on resources.last_img read more

Half of Tokyo residents oppose Olympics in 2021: poll

first_imgRead Also: Video: Bruce tried to tap up De Bruyne during post-match interviewKoike has been heavily involved in preparations for the Games, travelling to Rio for the handover ceremony after the last Summer Olympics.Earlier this month, she told AFP that the rescheduled Olympics will be safe despite the coronavirus pandemic, pledging a “120-percent effort” to ensure the first-ever postponed Games can go ahead. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Just over half of Tokyo’s residents don’t think the postponed 2020 Olympics should be held next year, backing either a further delay or outright cancellation because of fears over the coronavirus, according to a poll published Monday.Tokyo 2020 became the first Olympics postponed in peacetime earlier this year as the coronavirus pandemic took holdThe survey carried out by two Japanese news organisations is only a single data point, but comes after health experts warned that even a year’s delay may not be sufficient to hold the Games safely.The poll conducted over the weekend found 51.7 percent of respondents hope the Games in 2021 are postponed again or cancelled, while 46.3 percent want to see the rescheduled Olympics go ahead.Among those opposed to a 2021 Games, 27.7 percent said they want them cancelled altogether, while 24.0 percent would prefer a second postponement.The telephone poll, conducted by Kyodo News and Tokyo MX television between June 26-28, received 1,030 replies.Of those who said they want to see the Games held next year, 31.1 percent said the event should be in a scaled-back form, including without spectators, while 15.2 percent said they wanted to see a full-blown Olympics.Tokyo 2020 was postponed in March as the coronavirus spread across the globe, causing the worst disruption to the Olympics since two editions were cancelled during World War II.The Games are now scheduled to begin on July 23, 2021, although they will still be known as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.Officials from Japan and the International Olympic Committee have warned it will not be possible to postpone again, and even the year-long delay has created significant financial and logistical headaches.The poll, conducted ahead of the Tokyo gubernatorial election on July 5, also found incumbent Yuriko Koike leading her opponents “by a large margin”.Her precise lead was not specified, in keeping with a media tradition of not publishing polling figures in the days before a vote.
