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

Deer-Vehicle Accidents More Likely In The Fall

first_imgA deer in the headlights is one hazard of driving through Southeastern Indiana.October and November have historically been the worst months for deer-vehicle collisions and the amount of accidents have been on the rise in recent years.In fact, animal-vehicle collisions have gone up dramatically by almost 69 percent since the 1990’s.The rise in deer-vehicle accidents in the fall can be directly linked to multiple factors including the mating season of deer, farmers in the field and more cars on the road, according to District 9 Conservation Officer Bill Beville.“All of those factors are probably the reason why accidents have risen over recent years,” Officer Beville said.“Annually we do see an increase in car-deer collisions in the fall, mainly because of the harvest and mating season.”Hunting season and improved technology that allows farming operations to continue around the clock are also contributing factors.Deer are most active during dawn and dusk. According to Beville, “Drivers should be especially cautious during the two hours window before and after sunrise and sunset.”It is important to always scan the roadway, use high beams, and if a collision is imminent, stay calm and don’t swerve.“Drivers need to be alert and watch for animals entering the roadway. Just by keeping your eyes up and not being distracted by other things, you can greatly decrease the possibility of a deer-car collision.”last_img read more

EPL: Tammy Abraham strikes eighth league goal in Chelsea win

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea sink Brighton to make winning start Nigerian born striker, Tammy Abraham, has scored his eighth league goal of the season as Chelsea won back-to-back Premier League games under Frank Lampard for the first time with a 4-1 win at Southampton.Abraham set the Blues on their way after 17 minutes before Mason Mount doubled the lead. Danny Ings’ effort on 30 minutes gave Southampton hope but N’Golo Kante’s deflected effort before half-time gave the visitors breathing space again.Christian Pulisic, on as a substitute, found Michy Batshuayi in the 89th minute and he made no mistake to complete the rout.Victory at St Mary’s moved Lampard’s men up to fifth, with struggling Southampton still just a point above the bottom three.Abraham tested Angus Gunn with a low shot before getting the better of him following a good pass from Callum Hudson-Odoi. Abraham took a neat touch and lofted the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper and despite Maya Yoshida’s attempts to clear, goalline technology proved the ball crossed the line.Southampton were reeling and just seven minutes later, Mount grabbed his fourth of the season following a slick move. Willian pounced on poor defending and the ball eventually found Mount, who slammed past Gunn to put Chelsea in charge.Mount should have made it 3-0 but screwed wide soon after and he and Chelsea were made to pay when Ings diverted a cross from the right in to reduce the deficit.Southampton looked invigorated following Ings’ strike but were left deflated just before half time when Kante’s effort deflected past Gunn to restore Chelsea’s two-goal advantage.Hudson-Odoi almost made it 4-1 just after the break but Gunn stood firm to deny him and Chelsea closed the game out with relative ease to claim a fourth win in a row in all competitions, with Batshuayi finishing things off late on.
