Randy Newman’s Faust to Play Encores!

No Comments

first_imgEncores! Off-Center has made our jaws drop, in the best possible way, yet again. Randy Newman’s Faust is to appear for one-night-only as part of its 2014 season on July 1. Grammy, Oscar and Emmy award winner Newman will play the Devil in the concert at the New York City Center’s Mainstage. A darkly comic modern-day take on the Faust story, Randy Newman’s Faust was first seen in 1993. In Newman’s retelling, God and the Devil fight for the soul of Henry Faust, a student at the University of Notre Dame. The musical played at both San Diego’s La Jolia Playhouse and Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, as well as being released as an album. No word yet on who will be joining Newman onstage, but along with the singer-songwriter as the Devil, the record featured James Taylor as Lord, Don Henley as Henry Faust, Elton John as Angel Rick, Linda Ronstadt as Margaret and Bonnie Raitt as Martha. What sort of pact would we have to make to see them all at the concert, because we’d consider it!?! View Commentslast_img read more

No Comments

first_imgVermont has had the second highest success in the nation in creating new jobs with federal stimulus funds. It also ranks 12th in stimulus-related funding per capita. Meanwhile, in a new analysis conducted by Onvia, the leader in gBusiness solutions and the creator of Recovery.org, reveals that the “Recovery Summer” being promoted by the White House is poised to usher in a wave of new jobs in the second half of this year.For a complete look at the heat map visit:http://promotions.onvia.com/documents/map_arra_private_sector_jobs_impac(link is external)…To date, only one-third of the Recovery Act’s $275 billion that is allocated for projects to create private sector jobs on Main Street has been awarded. The remaining $218 billion represents a substantial amount of new projects that are about to get under way across the U.S.Top line findings:714,589 private sector jobs have been supported nationwide by Recovery Act project spending since its passage. These do not include public sector jobs created by stimulus grants to states and those paid by the government. Recovery Act project spending in 2010 is expected to generate a 27 percent increase in this figure by the end of 2010.$57.5 billion has been awarded to private sector contractors to fulfill Recovery Act projects, just one-third of the $275 billion allocated for private sector projects.Arkansas, North Carolina, Colorado, Maryland and Pennsylvania are the top five states for ARRA project per capita spending-to-date. Wisconsin, Illinois, Tennessee, Nevada and Utah are the bottom five states.North Carolina, Vermont, Illinois, and Nevada are projected to be the top five states for private sector job creation resulting from ARRA project contract awards in the remainder of 2010. Maryland, Wyoming, Alabama, Alaska and Oregon are projected to be the bottom five states.These findings were derived from Onvia’s data through August 11, 2010 – approximately 18 months since the stimulus money began flowing into the states.
