Greta Gerwig on Sondheim Geekdom & Baring It All in The Village Bike

first_img Congrats on making your professional theater debut—why was The Village Bike the play for you? I really love and respect [director] Sam Gold—well, now I love him. Before, I was just a fan. He’s singlehandedly brought me my favorite theater experiences as an audience member. The Annie Baker plays [Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, The Flick] were hugely important for me, and Fun Home destroyed me for a week. So I felt like I would give my eye teeth to work with him. Then when I started reading the play, it sounds ridiculous to say this, but I knew two pages in that it was really good. Instantly, I could hear it in my head. Well, what about now? Yeah, I’m gonna force someone to dream up some musical for me. [Laughs.] If it was the right musical and I felt like I wasn’t going to do a disservice to it, I would love to do one. But if the right thing never happens, I’m just happy to see them. Your character Becky has a lot of pent-up sexuality. What is it like to unleash this side of yourself in front of an audience? I started wearing a nightie in rehearsal very early, because I knew that I would have a degree of embarrassment about my body and that I had to get over it. I got used to all of the actors seeing me like that, and then the set designers came and the producers came for run-throughs. I wanted to ease myself into feeling comfort with the high degree of emotional exposure but also physical, sexual exposure. For me, it’s terrifying but it also feels like it has its own reckless momentum, and in the second act, there’s a current that I can get into where it almost feels cathartic. What kind of chocolate? If I tell you about it, I’m worried I’m going to make an addict out of you, and it’s expensive. I’ve made the entire cast addicts. It’s called Fine & Raw chocolate and it’s made in Brooklyn, and I like their cacao and coconut bars. I can’t even explain it, it’s like fudge, it’s like butter, it’s so good…but they’re $7 a bar. So we were all joking that our entire paychecks are going to our chocolate addiction. View Comments You initially wanted to major in musical theater in college. Were you a fan of musicals growing up? I didn’t grow up with television, but I could rent VHS tapes from the library. I would watch Gene Kelly musicals and The King and I and Oklahoma! I just love musicals, and I’m a huge Sondheim nerd. The documentary of the cast recording of Company is one of my favorite things ever made. And I was into Floyd Collins and Parade when I was in high school. But the truth is I never had a great enough voice to really go for it, and my mom wasn’t super excited about me pursuing a full-time musical theater career. She wanted me to get a liberal arts education and maybe have the potential to be a lawyer one day. So I gave up my NYU and musical theater dream. Show Closed This production ended its run on July 13, 2014 I’m so sad about How I Met Your Dad not getting picked up. The saddest part about it for me is I loved the people I was making it with—Carter [Bays] and Craig [Thomas], who made How I Met Your Mother and Emily Spivey, who was creating this new show with them. I loved the process of both acting in it but also sitting in the writers’ room and pitching jokes—it made me feel like I was an old-timey joke writer on a Sid Caesar show. I’m bummed out that we can’t have the experience of doing it, but at the same time, you have so little control over these things. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, and if it’s not, it’s not. I think that what gives me the right to call myself a show person, which is all I’ve ever really wanted to call myself.center_img With her delightful ability to be equal parts awkward and charming on screen, Greta Gerwig has taken the indie film world by storm with her stellar performances in Frances Ha, Greenberg and Lola Versus. Aside from school shows, the world premiere of Penelope Skinner’s humorous and haunting new play The Village Bike is the first time the actress/writer/filmmaker has appeared on stage, but Gerwig insists that she’s no theater newbie. Below, the lifelong theater fan chatted with Broadway.com about her Sondheim obsession, the unfortunate demise of How I Met Your Dad and getting comfortable enough to strip down emotionally and physically in the new MCC Theater production of The Village Bike. See Greta Gerwig in The Village Bike at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. You go on a wild ride—how do you unwind after the show? Well, we have a lot of whiskey in the dressing room. [Laughs.] And I have this kind of chocolate I like, so I take off my [prop] wedding ring, I have a shot of whiskey and I eat some chocolate and then I’m ready to go out into the world. Related Shows The Village Bike Do you have a musical theater dream role? Well, I wish I sounded just like Audra McDonald. And this sounds like I’m being tongue-and-cheek, but anything Elaine Stritch played, I could maybe have a shot at doing OK with, because there’s something about her and the way she is that I always felt connected to. That could maybe work out for me. The Sondheim women are the parts that I would love to play. They’re just so complex and not cliché. They’re so dark and spiky and complicated. They make mistakes and they sing about them. That’s what I would wanna do.last_img read more

Achmea CEO: Syntrus Achmea on its way to profit in 2018

first_imgAiling pensions provider Syntrus Achmea Pensioenbeheer is expected to be profitable in 2018 after nine consecutive years of losses, according to its parent company’s executive chairman.Commenting on Achmea’s first-half results, Willem van Duin said its pensions management division would make a profit next year after ceasing its loss-making services to mandatory industry-wide pension funds.Last year, Syntrus Achmea Pensioenbeheer incurred a €22.5m loss, after making similar losses each year since 2008.As of 2018, Syntrus Achmea Pensioenbeheer will only offer services to company pension funds, non-mandatory sector schemes and occupational pension funds. Recently, it emerged that all 22 industry-wide schemes that had to leave Syntrus Achmea before 2019, had found a new provider. Only two decided to stay with Syntrus Achmea.Last November, Syntrus Achmea – the Netherlands’ largest pensions administrator – announced that it would cease servicing mandatory sector schemes because its new IT system could not cope with their complicated pension arrangements.Achmea’s first half figures revealed that the operational result on pensions provision had already improved, in part due to the launch of a general pension fund (APF) by its insurance subsidiary Centraal Beheer.It said that the Centraal Beheer APF had acquired new business and had to invest less as its starting-up phase had ended.Achmea added that it had also received higher fees from existing pension fund clients as they had increased in scale.The company reported that its umbrella division of Old Age Provision, which includes Achmea Bank and Achmea Investment Management, made a €4m profit during the first six months of this year, against a €13m loss during the same period of 2016.Thanks to new clients for the Centraal Beheer APF, Achmea IM saw its assets under management increase from €116bn to €117bn year-to-date.last_img read more

Gold Coast’s first penthouse up for grabs

first_imgThe Gold Coast’s first penthouse is up for grabs.The first penthouse to be built on the Coast, which helped put the Glitter Strip on the map as a holiday destination, has hit the market. Perched at the top of the Gold Coast’s first high-rise development, and one of Queensland’s earliest skyscrapers, the four-bedroom apartment is in the heritage listed Kinkabool building. The dated Surfers Paradise skyhome occupies the whole top floor and is a deceased estate being sold via an auction campaign. The four-bedroom apartment at 9/34 Hanlan St, Surfers Paradise.Surfers Paradise First National agent Bob Rollington, who is marketing the property with Leanne Marr, said the penthouse was a piece of Gold Coast history, as was its lockup garage which was on a separate title. “It was the first high-rise in Surfers, built in 1960 by John Booker,” he said.“The views are spectacular and you are right in the centre of town. “The garage is next door which was the original site of the Flamingo Nightclub, the first nightclub in Surfers.” MORE NEWS: Has this property started a sick trend?MORE NEWS: Million-dollar sale sets street record The skyhome will head under the hammer on June 15.The Queensland Heritage Register lists the building as a place of significance as it was the beginning of residential towers on the Coast. “Built in 1959-1960 at Surfers Paradise, the home-unit building known as Kinkabool was the Gold Coast’s first high-rise and one of Queensland’s earliest, built shortly after Torbreck was completed in Brisbane in 1960,” the description reads. The report said the building was the starting point for developments of its type which kicked off tourism in Queensland and gave the Gold Coast an international reputation. “Kinkabool also illustrates a significant aspect of the evolving character of the quintessential Australian beach holiday,” the site stated. “It reflects a shift in the preferences of many post-World War II Australian tourists away from traditional holiday accommodation options like camping or caravanning, guest or boarding houses toward high-rise, self-contained apartments with a view of the beach and equipped with modern conveniences like timesaving kitchen appliances and on-site pools.”The penthouse at 9/34 Hanlan St is set to head under the hammer on June 15.

Ash brings familiar defense vs OSU football

Rutgers coach Chris Ash looks on during a game against the Washington Huskies at Husky Stadium in Seattle, WA on Saturday, Sept. 3.Credit: Courtesy of Rutgers Athletic CommunicationsThe Ohio State football team has prided itself on its defense since the days of Woody Hayes. The 2013 Buckeyes failed to win the Big Ten Championship, a de facto play-in game to enter the national championship game, primarily on the play of a below-average secondary that ranked 112th in the country in passing defense.Coach Urban Meyer decided to make a change and brought in then-Arkansas defensive coordinator Chris Ash. In just one season, Ash played a significant part in the transformation of the OSU defense, the “Silver Bullets,” into a menacing takeaway machine. Primarily overseeing the defensive backs at OSU, the Buckeyes forced 26 turnovers in 2014 and ranked 29th in pass defense.Now, Ash is attempting to transform another defense in his new job as head coach of Rutgers, OSU’s opponent in the Buckeyes’ Big Ten opener on Saturday at Ohio Stadium.Redshirt junior defensive end Tyquan Lewis said Ash taught the defense a new style of tackling during his two seasons in Columbus. Ash preached the importance of keeping their heads up and driving through the ball carrier’s legs during a tackle.“(The tackling) shows up more on the perimeter,” Lewis said. “They’re coming up and hitting the right way. It makes a big difference as far as missed tackles.”Rutgers is Ash’s first job as a head coach in Division I college football. Before Arkansas and Ohio State, Ash spent two seasons with Wisconsin as the Badgers’ defensive coordinator. All too familiar with his former colleague’s play calling and coaching style, Meyer said that he has changed a lot of his defensive signals for this week given the similarities in the Scarlet Knight defense.“It’s our defense. I mean, like, exactly,” Meyer said during Monday’s press conference. “Their defensive line is much improved and the guys are bigger and stronger.”Not only is Ash a part of the Meyer coaching tree, Rutgers offensive coordinator Drew Mehringer, special teams coordinator Vince Okruch, defensive backs coach Bill Busch, running backs coach Zak Kuhr and strength and conditioning coach Kenny Parker worked under Meyer in some capacity at OSU. Mehringer even worked with former OSU offensive coordinator Tom Herman at Houston in 2015.While Ash is beginning to create his own coaching carousel, his teachings still reside within the OSU program. Redshirt junior linebacker Chris Worley said co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, who replaced Ash in the offseason, has nearly the same defense so there has not been a learning curve this season.Worley is in his first season as a starter and experiencing the most success he has had at OSU. While Schiano and co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell are certainly due credit for Worley’s success, the linebacker said Ash had a large contribution to his maturation into a more intelligent football player.With the implementation of the targeting rule in 2013 that protects an offensive player from a head injury, Worley, who used to be a guy that looked for the big hit, is a more fundamentally sound tackler than he was his first year in Columbus.“It’s the greatest way of tackling in the game of football today. It helped me, but it helped everyone who came through here and played defense,” Worley said. “Just knowing when I can take those shots and when I can’t, being comfortable and tackling in that way has helped me a tremendous amount.”For the offense that will actually be facing the Scarlet Knight defense, redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett has great familiarity in competing against a Chris Ash defense. Barrett battled in practice against Ash and OSU’s first and second team defense for the better part of two years.When the Buckeyes trot out on Saturday, Barrett said the offense has some comfortability facing a familiar defense. But knowing Ash, Barrett and the coaching staff expects him to implement schemes he has not shown through Rutgers’ first three games.“It’s a funky mix between the two … he’s not going to let our base things try to happen,” Barrett said. “At the end of the day we have to be prepared for what he’s going to throw at us and making adjustments on the fly.” read more

Clippers outslug Indians salvage seasonopening split

The Columbus Clippers finished off their season-opening series against the Indianapolis Indians with another impressive offensive performance, winning 9-4.Brian Buscher led the offensive output with three hits, an intentional walk, an RBI and one run scored.Yohan Pino earned a win in his first start of the season. Pino allowed six hits through five innings with five strikeouts and one walk.“I feel good about our starting pitching,” Clippers manager Mike Sarbaugh said. “Some of the conditions the first few games had some things to do with the offensive numbers that were put up, but I think the last two nights, the ballpark played the way it’s going to play for the rest of the year. We used the bullpen more than we would’ve liked to, but we made it through so far, and we’ll come back tomorrow and get after it again.”Carlos Santana homered in the first inning to put the Clippers up 1-0. Santana’s home run was his fourth in the first four games of the season. The Indians came back with two runs in the fourth inning. Steven Pearce hit a triple to start the rally. Neil Walker and Luke Carlin both had RBI singles to give the Indians a 2-1 lead.The Clippers responded in the bottom of the fifth inning with two runs to regain the lead. Buscher started the inning with a double, and scored on a single by Damaso Espino. After Jose Constanza hit a double to send the runners to second and third base, Trevor Crowe hit a sacrifice fly to center field to score Espino.Frank Herrmann entered in relief for the Clippers in the sixth inning. Herrmann pitched two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk. He displayed a very strong arm, at one point reaching 98 mph on the radar. “Herrmann came in with a 3-2 lead, any time you can come in and put up zeros it really gets us back into the dugout ready to add on to the lead, which we did in the seventh inning,” Sarbaugh said.The Clippers blew the game wide open in the bottom of the seventh inning, scoring six more runs as they batted around the order. The Indians went through three pitchers in the seventh inning, allowing six hits, a walk and an error in relief pitcher Steven Jackson.Carlton Smith pitched the eighth inning for the Clippers, allowing one hit but holding the Indians to no runs.Jess Todd pitched the ninth inning, giving up three hits and two runs, one unearned.The Clippers scored 41 runs in the four games. They entered Sunday’s game leading the International League in batting average, runs, hits, RBIs, slugging percentage and on-base percentage.“I think we have a good offensive club, and at the same time, field conditions helped us out the first couple nights,” left fielder Trevor Crowe said. “We’ve been getting good pitches to hit and hitting them well.”The Clippers showed some explosiveness with a 17-4 win over Indianapolis on Thursday night. Carlos Santana showed why he is considered a top prospect with four hits, including two home runs and four RBIs.On Friday, the Clippers and Indians broke the record of most home runs in one game at Huntington Park. The teams combined for nine home runs, nearly doubling the previous record of five. The Clippers lost the game 14-12.On Saturday, the Clippers fell to the Indians 4-3. A 3-3 tie was broken in the top of the eighth inning when Brandon Moss hit a solo home run to take the lead. The Indians held off the Clippers for the final two innings and earned the win.The Clippers continue their homestand Monday against the Louisville Bats. Louisville is off to a 3-1 start after defeating the Toledo Mud Hens on Sunday. read more
