Set on a single London night, it steps into the fairy story landscape of McQueen’s mind, the landscape seen in his immortal shows, where with a dress an urchin can become an Amazon, where beauty might just help us survive the night. A girl has watched McQueen’s Mayfair house for eleven consecutive days. Tonight she climbs down from her watching tree and breaks into his house, to steal a dress, to become someone special. He catches her, but, instead of calling the police, they embark together on a journey through London and into his heart.Reprising their roles as Isabella Blow and Arabella will be Tracy-Ann Oberman and Laura Rees, respectively. Michael Bertenshaw will be joining the cast as Mr Hitchcock. Further casting for the West End transfer will be announced later.The show will feature production design by David Farley, choreography by Christopher Marney, video design by Tim Bird, lighting design by David Howe, sound design by John Leonard and wigs designed by Linda McKnight.last_img read more

Vermont Public Television plans new magazine show

first_imgVermont Public Television, Vermont’s statewide public television network, is making plans for a new, locally produced magazine program on air and online with the working title ‘Green Mountain Guide.’ VPT aims for an early 2012 launch of a weekly showcase for interesting people, regional culture, outdoor experiences, local history and important public issues.  Audiences will notice a few other changes to VPT’s production landscape. The call-in program ‘Public Square’ will not return this fall. While VPT plans to continue its examination and discussion of important issues, they will be handled during the magazine show or through more prominent special reports.VPT will continue to broadcast its venerable interview program, ‘Profile,’ each week but does not plan to produce new episodes for the fall. ‘‘Profile’ has introduced us to some fascinating people,’ Scott said, ‘but after a decade in production, we want to change things up. This doesn’t mean we will end our conversations with interesting people or our long relationship with ‘Profile’ host Fran Stoddard. There will be room for both in VPT’s new local production plans.’ ‘We know Vermonters love Vermont,’ said Kathryn A. Scott, chief content officer for VPT, ‘And we know our audiences have a real thirst for information and entertainment that enlightens and enriches their understanding of the world. With ‘Green Mountain Guide,’ we hope to give them a slice of what they crave: even greater knowledge and appreciation of the people, places and ideas that make Vermont unique.’‘We intend to offer a combination of timely reports, in-depth conversations and fascinating stories you won’t find anywhere else,’ Scott said. VPT hopes to make the ‘Green Mountain Guide’ a permanent part of its lineup but will begin with a short-term commitment and then assess audience response and options for longer-range support.‘Green Mountain Guide’ will be just part of a new approach at VPT. ‘We want to get even more from our production efforts around the region,’ Scott said. ‘We are mindful that our supporters literally invest in our efforts, so our team works hard to be practical, frugal and nimble in our approach to storytelling.’‘We are more than a statewide television network. VPT provides an extensive public media system which can help people make real, human connections throughout New England,’ Scott said. ‘Vermonters are active people with busy lives. We need to offer our content where and when it’s convenient for them. For example, we routinely make our programs available online or out in the community, sometimes even before airing them on TV.’New projects in the pipeline include a focus on some of Vermont’s summer music workshops and festivals, including the KoSA International Percussion Workshop, the Manchester Music Festival, the Vermont Youth Orchestra and Grace Potter’s Grand Points North festival. Short video stories from these events will air during local slots that are part of the new PBS Arts Fall Festival beginning in October. Expanded versions will appear in ‘Green Mountain Guide’ and a locally produced performance special.Also coming in October, VPT-produced stories about bootleggers and rum-runners in Vermont will debut as companions to ‘Prohibition,’ a new PBS film from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Then, new episodes of VPT’s award-winning ‘Emerging Science’ will kick off PBS Science Wednesdays to complement new seasons of ‘NOVA’ and ‘Nature.’This approach is designed to make it easier for audiences to find new content right next to similar programs they already enjoy. It also will give VPT a chance to cover many more topics without the heavy commitments required when undertaking lengthier documentaries or single-subject series.VPT. 9.14.2011last_img read more
