How Sell/Buy/Date’s Sarah Jones Used to Get Out of Class

first_img Sell/Buy/Date View Comments Related Shows Leave it to Tony winner Sarah Jones to get laughs when discussing something as serious as the commercial sex industry. That’s exactly what she’ll be doing in Sell/Buy/Date, her Carolyn Cantor-helmed solo show which will feature Jones taking on 19 different characters. On September 13, she introduced late night host Seth Meyers to a sassy, bespectacled Lorraine. “He’s married, but even so, nice to flirt at 12:30 at night,” Jones joked at Meyers. She also went on to say that she used her impersonation skill to call friends out of class as their parents back in the day. We’re excited to see her use those powers for gut-busting good in Sell/Buy/Date, which begins performances on September 27. In the meantime, watch the clip below!center_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 3, 2016 Sarah Joneslast_img read more

Chelsea 2 – 2 Juventus

first_imgChelsea failed to open their defence of the Champions League with victory as Juventus staged a stirring comeback to earn a draw at Stamford Bridge.Brazilian summer signing Oscar was Chelsea’s inspiration with two swift first-half goals on his full debut – the second a spectacular long-range effort that left Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon helpless.But the Italian champions, unbeaten domestically in 42 Serie A matches, demonstrated their pedigree and strength to mount a recovery and earn a point.Arturo Vidal’s goal put them back in contention before half-time and substitute Fabio Quagliarella ensured the points were shared with an equaliser nine minutes from time.Oscar took the honours for Chelsea with a performance of rich promise on his first start since his £25m switch from Internacional. And the highlight of this opening Champions League group game was the moment the 21-year-old won the hearts of Stamford Bridge with his magnificent second goal.But even with the lead Oscar gave them, Chelsea were never able to exert complete control and it was no surprise when Juventus eventually drew level via Quagliarella’s cool late finish. Before Oscar transformed the complexion of this game, Juventus had created the two best openings of the half. Chelsea keeper Petr Cech saved at the feet of Claudio Marchisio after he beat the offside trap and Mirko Vucinic shot wastefully wide from the angle after he was played in by Vidal.Oscar had been on the margins of the action early on – but made himself an instant hero with the Stamford Bridge crowd.He gave Chelsea the lead with a 20-yard shot that took a crucial touch off Leonardo Bonucci to take it away from the grasp of Buffon.It was a strike that carried a hint of good fortune but the second was a testimony to his touch and technique as he turned from 25 yards before curling the most precise of right-foot finishes high beyond the stretching Buffon.Juventus deserved something for their first-half efforts and they were rewarded seven minutes before half-time as Vidal’s low shot crept past Cech into the bottom corner. Italy keeper Buffon illustrated his enduring quality in the opening moments of the second half as he dived low to his right to turn away Branislav Ivanovic’s shot, then showed good reflexes to divert Frank Lampard’s free-kick to safety.Oscar had been less influential after the break and shortly after being felled by Bonucci he was replaced by Juan Mata to a resounding ovation from Chelsea’s supporters.Mata soon had a glorious chance to ensure victory as his one-two with Eden Hazard carved the visitors apart, but he fired into the side netting.It was to prove costly as Juventus continued to play with ambition in search of at least a point and they were level with nine minutes left. Jon Mikel Obi lost possession and Marchisio’s pass allowed Quagliarella to escape John Terry’s attentions and slide a finish under Cech.He almost made the turnaround complete with an effort from the edge of the area that clipped the top of the bar with Cech beaten, but Chelsea survived and claimed a point.last_img read more

FIBA World Cup: Celtics excited for new season, extra time with new teammate Kemba Walker

first_img“I’m just excited,” Jayson Tatum said here Thursday at Team USA’s practice session at the Mendenhall Center on the UNLV campus. “We’ve got a good team, it’s a new season, everybody’s kind of ready to just get going. Last year didn’t finish how we wanted, so it makes guys hungry and excited for next season.”[email protected] goes glass at the buzzer. #USABMNT pic.twitter.com/XGGlfJYIlS— USA Basketball (@usabasketball) August 8, 2019Walker joined the Celtics this offseason as a part of a sign-and-trade with the Hornets in which Boston sent Terry Rozier to Charlotte and Walker made his way to Boston. He promptly signed a four-year, $140 million deal with the Celtics and will be taking over the point guard spot left vacant by Kyrie Irving, who went to the Nets in free agency.

Things didn’t work out the way they planned though in 2018-19 as Boston slid to 49-33, fourth in the East and lost in the second round to the Bucks, narrowly averting a sweep.“I think on the outside — because there’s not much to talk about for two months in the summer — that’s kind of been a consistent story, and, you know, on the inside we moved on past it a long time ago,” coach Brad Stevens told NBC Sports Boston on Wednesday. “And so it’s been a great vibe in our building, we have a great group of workers.“Jaylen and Jayson are here (in Las Vegas), but they were in Boston last week working all the way up until this point. Obviously we’ve had a ton of our young guys through, we turned that page a long time ago and that’s what you should do after a season. I mean, I think whether you had success or it wasn’t as good as you want, you learn from it and move on.”Brad Stevens on last season: ‘We’ve moved on past it a long time ago, and so it’s been a great vibe in our building’ pic.twitter.com/aVLDnLQmPh— Celtics on NBC Sports Boston (@NBCSCeltics) August 8, 2019Walker didn’t have to deal with the disappointment in Boston’s locker room last season. His disappointment has been Charlotte missing the playoffs in six of his eight seasons on the roster. Despite that, Walker made the Hornets his priority in free agency but simply couldn’t get a deal done with the team that drafted him. He has always stated his love for the city of Charlotte and Hornets fans and for his teammates and the organization, but it ultimately turned out it was time for him to move on.But loyalty like that —and a more talkative manner than new Celtics teammate Marcus Smart expected — already has endeared Walker to his new running mates. And while the four Celtics teammates have only had so much time to develop relationships, it sounds like it’s off to a good start.“We talked a little bit about basketball, but mostly just getting to know each other,” Smart said. “Knowing things that we probably didn’t know about one another and just laughing and joking and building that camaraderie up.”The #USABMNT Blue Team starts out 8-0 on the @usabasketball Select Team. pic.twitter.com/ueRpRd2z7j— NBA (@NBA) August 6, 2019Walker echoed Smart’s sentiments, but he made it clear he still has a way to go before he’ll be guaranteeing any titles in Boston’s future.“I’m the new guy, they already know each other, so it’s just kind of really me and getting acclimated to them and how things go,” Walker said.The Celtics will once again be one of the favorites for a high playoff seed in the East this season and the addition of Walker — and, the Celtics hope, the continued improvement of Gordon Hayward — will go a long way in making that happen.Boston’s success though could start here in Las Vegas and further on in September in China at the FIBA World Cup. Every second these four men spend on the court together can only help going forward even if they are in a different system than the one Stevens runs with the Celtics. LAS VEGAS — There is a consensus among the four Celtics players on Team USA’s FIBA World Cup roster — they can’t wait for next season to start.But the three players on the FIBA roster who are returning from the 2018-19 Celtics share another sentiment — they are looking forward to playing with Kemba Walker. But as Smart will tell you, these teammates will take every moment they can get with each other.“It’s tremendous for us because not a lot of guys get to do this,” Smart said. “Not a lot of guys, not a lot of teams have more than two or three guys out and just working with each other even before the season started.”I think that gives us a little step up on other guys.”last_img read more
