Newly Engaged Phillipa Soo on Backstage Fun at Hamilton

first_img Newly engaged Phillipa Soo stopped by The Today Show on February 18 to chat about a musical you might just have heard of called Hamilton. How is she enjoying playing Eliza Hamilton in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s gargantuan hit? “I’ve been with it for almost two years now. You’re kind of trying to find new ways in every night and for me it’s like those little backstage moments where you just kind of have a little fun backstage before you have to rush on.” The eyes of the world were on the company over the weekend when the company performed on the Grammy telecast. “It was nice that we were in our theater,” Soo revealed. “It felt like our own hometown version of the Grammys.” Check out the interview below. As if you didn’t know already, Hamilton is playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Phillipa Soo Hamilton Star Files Related Showscenter_img from $149.00 View Comments Phillipa Soo last_img read more

Space@Sea to prove multi-use potential of floating islands

first_imgThe Space@Sea project has officially started with the aim of developing a standardized and cost-efficient modular island capable of producing and storing energy from offshore renewable sources, among its other multi-use applications.Space@Sea consists of seventeen European partners, including companies, research institutes and universities, united under Horizon 2020-funded project to develop a modular concept for multi-use platforms with low ecological impact.The three-year project that officially started on November 1, 2017, will study the most suitable shape of the floaters to minimize the motions at sea.The total worth of the project is around €7.6 million, out of which Horizon 2020 is providing approximately €6.8 million to support its development.As a starting point, triangles that allow modular design will be used to maximize the flexibility of adding and removing deck space and applications if necessary.Offshore specialists will contribute to design a shared mooring solution in combination with a remote monitoring and sensing system to reduce installation and maintenance costs, according to the project consortium.Maarten Flikkema, Project Coordinator at Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN), said: “The three-year project can be regarded as a success if the modular design of the multi-use platform has successfully been validated in a relevant environment at model scale.”To remind, the concept for floating mega island, comprising 87 large triangle-shaped floaters, was tested at MARIN earlier this year.During Space@Sea project, four applications for the island will be studied including farming, transport and logistics hub, energy hub and living.To show the potential of multi-use modular floating islands, Space@Sea will conclude with the evaluation of three business cases with combinations of applications for various locations throughout Europe, the project consortium said.last_img read more
