Andy Karl & Stars of Groundhog Day to Perform at Barnes & Noble

first_img Andy Karl, Barrett Doss, Rebecca Faulkenberry, Andrew Call and Raymond J. Lee of the Broadway musical Groundhog Day will celebrate the release of their original cast album with a CD signing and in-store performance at Barnes & Noble on the Upper East Side in NYC. The event will take place on May 19 at 4:30pm. The album is now available both digitally and on CD via Masterworks Broadway/Broadway Records.Groundhog Day began previews on March 16 and opened on April 17 at the August Wilson Theatre. The musical features a score by Tim Minchin and a book by Danny Rubin. Matthew Warchus directs with choreography by Peter Darling. Groundhog Day is currently nominated for seven 2017 Tony Awards.Based on the 1993 movie, Groundhog Day stars Karl as TV weatherman Phil, who reluctantly covers the story of Punxsutawney Phil for the third year in a row. Making no effort to hide his frustration, he covers the story and moves on, expecting his job to be finished. However, he awakes the “following” day and discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and the fun happens again and again and again. He soon realizes he must take advantage of it in order to secure the love of coworker Rita (Doss). View Comments Andy Karl in ‘Groundhog Day'(Photo: Joan Marcus)last_img read more

Better odds

first_img Gareth Mitchell, partner, Pierce Glynn, London SE1 Martin Comport explains that ‘sometimes, cynical me thinks that [legal aid] certificates are given on the basis of “let’s say the chances are 50/50 or less but then they will be much greater when the opposition know that we have a certificate”’. Mr Comport can take comfort in the fact that for many years civil legal aid certificates have only been granted where prospects of success are greater that 50% (save in a limited number of exceptional cases, for example, where liberty is at stake), and that the Legal Services Commission’s Funding Code Criteria (which are published on the LSC’s website) contain a provision in the precise terms he suggests: ‘Full representation will be refused unless the likely benefits to be gained from the proceedings justify the likely costs, such that a reasonable private paying client would be prepared to litigate, having regard to the prospects of success and all other circumstances.’ If Mr Comport does not want to support the Law Society’s legal aid campaign that is his choice. But I hope he would agree that any debate about the future of legal aid should be based on accurate information about the operation of the current scheme.last_img read more
