Throwback Thursday: Remembering That Other Bob Dylan Musical on Broadway

first_img Girl From the North Country, Tony nominee Conor McPherson’s new musical set to Bob Dylan’s songbook, starts previews February 7 on Broadway, but it wasn’t the first musical to bring Dylan’s songs to the stage. Let’s take a moment to remember Twyla Tharp’s 2006 take on Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin’. Starring Michael Arden, The Times They Are A-Changin’ marked a big return to Broadway for award-winning choreographer Tharp, who had opened her Billy Joel musical Movin’ Out four years earlier to great critical acclaim. The Times They Are A-Changin’ was set inside a traveling circus (featuring onstage trampolines and acrobats). It told the story of a tyrannical circus master named Captain Ahrab and his son Coyote, who’s unsure about whether to take up his father’s reign over a cast of clowns. To express his discontent, Coyote sings, unfiguratively, the title song. Unlike Movin’ Out, The Times They Are A-Changin’ chose a more literal path with a popular singer-songwriter’s work. After all, there are “jugglers and clowns” in “Like A Rolling Stone.”The musical closed after 28 performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Take a look at video footage of Arden—who’d go on to forge a successful Broadway career as a two-time Tony nominated director—and the cast of The Times They Are A-Changin’  below.  Girl From the North Country Related Shows Michael Arden and Charlie Neshyba-Hodges in “The Times They Are A-Changin'” during its pre-Broadway run at the Old Globe in San Diego, California.

CSJ’s Marble Valley Grows awarded Bowse Health Trust grant

first_imgVermont Business Magazine College of St Joseph has been awarded a grant by the Bowse Health Trust, a department of Rutland Regional Medical Center. The grant awards $88,400 over three years. Marble Valley Grows, the farm-to-school network run by Kimberly Griffin, College of St. Joseph’s farm manager and wellness coordinator, will use the grant to continue working within Rutland County schools to enhance education and access to healthy food choices. Griffin developed Marble Valley Grows last April, and has been working to educate children about healthier food options, to include them in the decisions about the food they are served, educate them on where food comes from, and to empower them to grow food themselves. “Farm-to-school organizations are all over the state,” Griffin said. “But there was an obvious gap in Rutland County.” Most of Marble Valley Grows’ work can be divided into three parts: Education, in-cafeteria taste tests and food scrap sorting, and outdoor learning in school gardens. The program currently partners with seven classrooms in five different schools across Rutland County and sends College of St. Joseph students to teach classroom lessons, collect food scraps and help build classroom gardens. “School gardens in many ways become community gardens,” Griffin said  .And community is one of the big reasons Griffin took on the daunting task of creating a farm-to-school network for Rutland. “The Health Needs Assessment continuously indicated obesity as an epidemic in our county. Part of that is nutrition and nutrition education,” she said. “Marble Valley Grows educates students on healthy food choices, so it will hopefully begin to shift the attitudes toward health in the region.” Looking ahead, the grant will be used to continue the development of school garden programs, as well as the addition of other schools and classrooms throughout the region. Marble Valley Grows partners with organizations including RAFFL, food service providers, Shrewsbury Institute for Agricultural Education, Addison County Re-localization and more. The partnering schools include Northeast and Northwest Elementary in Rutland, Proctor, Christ the King and Lothrop. The Bowse Health Trust, a department of Rutland Regional Medical Center, has awarded over $4 million to over 55 programs in the local community since 1996. 2016 grant recipients also include the Southwestern Vermont Hoarding Task Force, hosted by Bennington Rutland Opportunity Council, and the Community Impact Program, hosted by Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum.Source: College of St Joseph 12.11.2015last_img read more

Kyokuyo to Build One of the Biggest

first_imgKyokuyo Shipyard Corporation will build a 540TEU container carrier for Kobe-based Imoto Lines, Ltd., a leading company for Japan’s domestic sea transport.This next generation domestic liner is the result of ‘chemical reaction’ between experience and expertise of the two companies.To meet the increasing demand in domestic transportation (for both normal and reverse logistics) as well as in feeder service to cope with enlarging international container carriers, the ship is designed to have the biggest loading capacity for a Japanese ‘coastal’ container vessel.With more than twice bigger than conventional types of 499-749GRT, she will bring a new dimension to the transport efficiency.From the outside, clean lines and Kyokuyo’s award-winning and patented SSS bow give the vessel a sleek modern look. The unique front-end shape is expected to save 5% of fuel consumption under average sea condition, by reducing the wind pressure by 30% compared with conventional hulls.The bridge and accommodation area are smartly integrated into the fore-part to ensure better visibility and crew’s comfort, by minimizing the impact of noise and vibration from the machinery. It also helps maximize the container loading efficiency.Besides her sleek hull shape, the new container ship will be equipped with many eco-friendly features that reduce the product’s impact on the environment: high efficiency propeller, fuel saving paint, F.O. piping system that prevents oil spills on bunkering, and IMO PSPC compliant coating, to name a few.Through numerous discussions with Imoto Lines, the best-in-class operator’s vast know-how and tons of ideas are implemented to this new product.“With the delivery scheduled in 2016, we are now working busy to tweak the hull shape, using tank tests and wind tunnel tests, and newly introduced ship design software. We can’t wait to build this ship that will set the benchmark for the next generation of domestic container carrier,” the shipyard said in a release.
