According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress will play an enigmatic government agent. Altar Boyz Crosses the Pond Good God! Off-Broadway hit Altar Boyz is crossing the pond. The award-winning musical comedy will receive its U.K. premiere at London’s Greenwich Theatre on October 3 and will play through October 18. Directed by Steven Dexter, casting will be announced later. Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Poster Revealed for Hamlet, Starring Benedict Cumberbatch We were most excited to wake up to the news that the poster had been revealed for the upcoming London production of Hamlet, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. However, the image, below, is a puzzle worthy of Sherlock Holmes. For it’s not of the British stage and screen star. It’s of a small child. Back to gazing at these totally necessary mashups of Cumberbatch and Hamlet. Helmed by Lyndsey Turner, Shakespeare’s classic will play a limited engagement (naturally) at the Barbican Theatre, August 5, 2015 through October 31. Opening night is set for August 25. Further casting news (and photos, presumably) will be released later. West End’s Made in Dagenham Completes Casting Isla Blair (The History Boys, TV’s House of Cards) and David Cardy (Ghost Stories) will join the West End cast of Made in Dagenham, as Connie and Monty, respectively. The musical stage adaptation of the hit British film, starring Gemma Arterton, will officially open at London’s Adelphi Theatre on November 5. View Commentslast_img read more

The Top Five Shows Your Friend Who Hates Broadway Might Actually Love

first_img ROCK OF AGES You won’t see any blue-haired matinee ladies sipping Chardonnay at this headbanging rock show. Throw back Jell-O shots while American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis, Frankie J. Grande of Big Brother and more wail ‘80s songs like “Don’t Stop Believin’” and “Nothin’ But a Good Time.” (Which is what you guys will be having, obviously.) Click for tickets! HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH Ladies and gentlemen, Hedwig is not for the faint of heart. In the Tony-winning musical, a disgruntled transgender rock star (currently played by Dexter’s Michael C.

JERSEY BOYS Sure, Jersey Boys is a Broadway musical, but we promise there isn’t a showtune in sight.

DOR gives tax e-filing break

first_img May 15, 2003 Regular News DOR gives tax e-filing break DOR gives tax e-filing breakcenter_img The Florida Department of Revenue recently announced that taxpayers will not be penalized if they are unable to file unemployment tax reports and pay unemployment tax electronically this year.“We understand that electronic filing represents a change for some taxpayers,” said Jim Zingale, executive director of the Revenue Department. “We believe it’s a change for the better. E-filing is safe, convenient, it helps reduce errors, and it will save time and money for all concerned. But to ease the transition to electronic filing, we want to give taxpayers more time to prepare to use e-filing options.”To reduce the burden of tax compliance, the DOR will not impose a penalty if taxpayers or tax preparers are not able to comply with the electronic filing and payment requirements for unemployment tax for the first quarter of 2003. Unemployment tax reports (Form UCT-6 ) for the first quarter of 2003 were late after April 30.A 2002 state law requires many taxpayers and tax preparers to begin filing unemployment tax reports and paying unemployment tax electronically starting in April. Taxpayers may use the department’s e-filing options or file using software purchased from DOR-certified vendors.About 89,000 employers were affected by the unemployment-tax requirements of the new law. But as of April 21, an estimated 20,000 employers had not yet enrolled to file and pay unemployment tax electronically.About 60,000 businesses have voluntarily signed up to use electronic filing and payment options, even though they were not required to do so.Many taxpayers who have successfully used the e-filing options report that the system is easy to use and safe. Overall, DOR surveys have shown three out of four taxpayers report satisfaction with DOR’s electronic filing and payment systems. If taxpayers already are prepared to e-file, DOR strongly encourages them to do so.The 2002 e-filing law requires employers to file unemployment tax reports and to pay tax electronically if they employed 10 or more employees in any calendar quarter during the previous state fiscal year (July 2001 through June 2002). Tax preparers who prepared and reported unemployment tax for five or more employers also are required to electronically file and pay unemployment tax on behalf of their clients.Businesses are required to file sales tax returns and pay sales tax electronically if they paid more than $30,000 in sales tax in the previous state fiscal year (July 2001 through June 2002).For information about complying with requirements to file and pay unemployment tax electronically, call (800) 482-8293. For information about requirements to file and pay sales, fuel, and other taxes electronically call (800) 352-3671 from within Florida or (850) 488-6800 if calling from outside Florida.

France’s coronavirus death toll jumps as nursing homes included

first_imgIt was the first region in France to be overwhelmed by a wave of infections that has rapidly moved west to engulf greater Paris, where hospitals are desperately trying to add intensive care beds to cope with the influx of critically ill patients.The care sector has called for blanket testing for all staff, with the virus often entering nursing homes through employees. More than 1 million people live in France’s care homes.”We have to limit the impact on old people as we know that they are the most fragile,” said Romain Gizolme, head of an association for the care of the elderly.Click https://tmsnrt.rs/3aIRuz7 in a separate browser for GRAPHIC tracking the global spread of coronavirus.On the frontline In early March, health authorities asked nursing home staff to toughen entry protocols, wear gloves and masks and isolate suspected cases.However, one worker in the Lyon region said that as of last week in her nursing home, residents were still dining together and staff were not wearing masks. Since then two workers had tested positive and four residents had fallen sick, she said.It is still not clear when the epidemic will reach its peak in France and hospitals in Paris are still scrambling to add more intensive care beds. France has already boosted their number to 9,000, from about 5,000 before the start of the crisis.Salomon said the number of coronavirus patients requiring life support rose by 6% on the previous day to 6,399.With France now in its third week of lockdown, the number of patients going into intensive care should in the next few days show how effective the government’s unprecedented measure is proving in slowing the rate of spread.In the Paris region, intensive care units are more or less saturated. Health authorities in the capital are trying to add 200 beds. Philippe said authorities would open a new ward at a hospital just outside Paris ahead of schedule so that it can take in an extra 86 patients there by mid-April.In Neuilly, a wealthy Paris suburb, one intensive care nurse told Reuters TV wild swings in the conditions of some patients were among the most difficult aspects to deal with.”You can go from a state wherein he’s doing well one minute and the next he’s not,” the nurse at the Ambroise Pare clinic, who gave his name as Martin, said.About 100 patients are being transferred from the capital to other less-affected regions to ease congestion in the wards, while medics are being relocated in the opposite direction.Respirators are also being put into people’s homes to save space at hospitals with patients monitored remotely.”We really now are on the frontline of the battle,” said an official at the Paris region’s health authority. Topics : “We are in France confronting an exceptional epidemic with an unprecedented impact on public health,” Salomon told a news conference.The country’s broad lockdown is likely to be extended beyond April 15, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Thursday, extending a confinement order to try and deal with the crisis that began on March 17.The government was racing to try to ensure it can produce or procure itself certain medications needed to treat coronavirus patients as stocks were running low, Philippe told TF1 TV, echoing concerns across Europe as the pandemic places a huge strain on hospitals in Italy, Spain and elsewhere.More than two-thirds of all the known nursing home deaths have been registered in France’s Grand Est region, which abuts the border with Germany.center_img The coronavirus death count in France surged to nearly 5,400 people on Thursday after the health ministry began including nursing home fatalities in its data.The pandemic had claimed the lives of 4,503 patients in hospitals by Thursday, up 12% on the previous day’s 4,032, said Jerome Salomon, head of the health authority. A provisional tally showed the coronavirus had killed a further 884 people in nursing homes and other care facilities, he added.This makes for a total of 5,387 lives lost to coronavirus in France – an increase of 1,355 over Wednesday’s cumulative total – although data has not yet been collected from all of the country’s 7,400 nursing homes.last_img read more

Zlatan hits 150 goals milestone

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years Zlatan Ibrahimovic has become the quickest player to reach 150 Serie A wins in the three-point era and the Swedish striker has Ante Rebic to thank for reaching the milestone on Sunday. AC Milan defeated Udinese 3-2 at the San Siro after Rebic scored the winner deep in injury time to seal successive wins as the club closed in on the Europa League places. Jens Stryger Larsen opened the scoring for Udinese in the seventh minute – a lead the visitors held until three minutes after the break when Rebic levelled. Theo Hernandez handed the hosts the lead in the 72nd minute before Kevin Lasagna equalised for Udinese with five minutes remaining. Rebic then grabbed the dramatic winner in the third minute of injury time as Ibrahimovic, who was given his first start after scoring last weekend against Cagliari, reached the 150 wins milestone in a record 222 games. The previous record was held by Argentine midfielder Esteban Cambiasso – a former teammate of Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan – who achieved the feat in 230 matches. The record includes every season since 1994/95, when Serie A introduced three points for a win. The 38-year-old Swede did not get to celebrate a goal in front of the home crowd but he has provided a confidence-boost for the northern giants who have taken seven points in three matches since his return. The victory lifts Milan to eighth in the Serie A table, one point off the Europa League berths. Udinese are in 13th position. Serie A leaders Juventus host Parma later on Sunday with second-placed Inter Milan travelling south to Lecce to keep the pressure on the champions.Tags: Ante RebicEuropa LeagueJens Stryger LarsenSan SiroSerie AZlatan Ibrahimoviclast_img read more
