Everyone Wants a Piece of LeslieHistory has its eyes on you, Leslie Odom Jr., but the cast of She Loves Me has its hands on you, too. When the newly awarded Tony winner walked down the aisle to give his acceptance speech, Zachary Levi and Jane Krakowski patted his arm and poked him, respectively. What the camera didn’t catch was Laura Benanti tackling him straight on (we assume). Your move, Liza. Broadway Really Does Look Like AmericaCynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry—a quartet of supremely talented black artists—won the four musical performance awards, marking the first time in Tony history that a person of color received an award in each of those categories. There’s no such thing as “enough” diversity and representation, but this season’s shows told us stories on stage and off of people of different races, sexual identities and abilities. Here’s hoping Broadway will continue to shine a light on all walks of life…and show the Oscars how it’s done. You Can Be with Child & Kick FaceAudra McDonald is soon taking a temporary leave from Shuffle Along to welcome the arrival of a new family member, but that doesn’t mean she’s not serving 1921 realness every minute until then. During the musical’s performance, the six-time Tony winner sang beautifully (as she is wont to do) and ended the number with a jaw-dropping high kick. Audra, we get it. You have talent for two. Sonnets Are the New FreestylingLin-Manuel Miranda is known for freestyling acceptance speeches, but when he won Best Score, the Hamilton maestro said he was “too old” to freestyle, and instead wrote a sonnet acceptance speech in response to the Orlando tragedy. “Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love,” he said through tears. We always appreciate Miranda’s thoughtfulness, but we didn’t know there was an age limit on freestyling. We were looking forward to Angela Lansbury doing it next year. Broadway Will Keep On ShiningThis year’s Tony Awards were more than a celebration of theater; they were a celebration of resilience, love and coming together in the darkest of times. Corden opened the ceremony by addressing viewers and assuring those affected by the tragedy in Orlando that they are not alone. Throughout the evening, presenters and winners honored the victims and the grieving, and lyrics like “I’m thankful for loving who I really am” never rang more true. Hate will never win, and Broadway will never stop shining. Barbra Streisand Is a Broadway PsychicWait. Hold on, Corden (and watch out, Brad Oscar). It looks like Barbra Streisand is vying for that Nostradamus spot. The stage and screen queen took the stage at the end of the night to present the Tony Award for Best Musical, and she didn’t even look at the envelope before (shockingly) announcing Hamilton the winner. Quick, Babs: When’s Funny Girl coming back, and who’s playing Fanny? Corden Would Crush It At Marie’s CrisisWe’ve seen Darren Criss, Lea Salonga and even Cynthia Erivo serenade crowds at the popular piano bar Marie’s Crisis, but after last night, we’re sure Corden is more than ready to take the lead in that basement. The emcee’s opening number referenced over 20 show tunes from “Alexander Hamilton” to “Rose’s Turn.” Looks like someone is poised to play Nostradamus in Something Rotten! It was anything but quiet uptown as the 2016 Tony Awards rocked the Beacon Theatre. Now that we’ve slept on it (after crashing a few after parties, of course), here are our main takeaways from Broadway’s biggest night. Put that Color Purple performance on pause for just a minute. It’s time for the Lessons of the Tony Awards! Christopher Fitzgerald Is Not Michael ArdenMichael Arden received his first Tony nomination for directing Spring Awakening, but unfortunately, you can’t see how he felt about it. The CBS broadcast cut to Christopher Fitzgerald in the audience instead of Arden as the nominees were announced. Come on, CBS. This is what he looks dressed to the nines. Here he is belting. Here he is on a moon. You’re welcome.

This year, Gloria Estefan, Steve Martin, Edie Brickell and Sara Bareilles were a part of their respective shows’ performances. Andrew Lloyd Webber played the tambourine. We’re glad you all had fun, but remember this means you’re now contractually obligated to appear in your own shows. Danny Burstein Is Law, Order & Then SomeAs any Broadway actor will tell you, the common thread is Law and Order. Appearing on the show and its spinoffs is a rite of passage. Just ask Danny Burstein. As Corden reminded us during the show, the Fiddler star has played seven (SEVEN!) characters on both Law & Order and SVU. Anyone have Dick Wolf’s number? We have an idea for an episode. It involves shimmying. View Comments
The Singapore Sevens is due to take place a week after the tournament in Hong Kong “It’s obviously a real shame but they have to put the health of those involved and attending first so it’s the right thing to do if it’s postponed,” Ben Ryan, who coached Fiji to Olympic sevens gold in 2016, told the South China Morning Post.Asia’s sports schedule has been hammered by the coronavirus, with Singapore’s HSBC Women’s World Championship, starting on February 27, among two golf events cancelled this week.The start of China’s Super League football is indefinitely on hold, and Chinese clubs are mostly sidelined from Asia’s Champions League until April.

The match turned in a five-minute spell midway through the second half. First Bojan had a fourth goal controversially ruled out for offside – referee Anthony Taylor deciding Mame Biram Diouf, who looked level anyway, was interfering by blocking the goalkeeper’s view. Arsenal went up the other end and won a penalty, converted by Santi Cazorla, and two minutes later Ramsey pulled a second back, but Stoke held on. Taylor’s decision caught players and fans by surprise, and Crouch said: “That was frustrating. “You go 4-0 up and in the blink of an eye it’s back to 3-2. That could have killed us off. He’s had a shot from outside the box and I was scratching my head wondering why it wasn’t given. “The ref said that Diouf was impeding the goalkeeper but I don’t think he moved. It’s a bit of a grey area that one. “We knew they would come back into it in the second half but we had to show that character and determination to get the result.” Amid all of Arsenal’s talent, it was Bojan that shone brightest on the ball. A somewhat unlikely summer signing from Barcelona, the little playmaker once known as the new Lionel Messi initially looked a fish out of water in the Premier League. But, since coming back into the side just over a month ago, Bojan has blossomed into Stoke’s most important attacking player and Geoff Cameron thinks the moniker might fit after all. The American defender said: “It’s not easy to come from other countries and to adapt to the Premier League. It’s more physical, a faster pace. It took some time for him to adjust and now he’s starting to fit in his shoes really well and he’s proving he’s a big-name player. “He’s a fantastic player. Technically he’s amazing. He’s a guy that you want on the pitch because he can change a game. He’s that spark. You could say he’s like a little Messi but I don’t want to fill his head too big.” Bojan linked up particularly well with Crouch, and the striker will hope it is a partnership Hughes wants to see more of. Saturday’s game was the first he had started for more than a month, and he responded with his first goal for more than two. The 33-year-old said: “It’s been really frustrating. I’ve been really disappointed to miss out the last few games and it was a case of trying to take the chance once I got it. Hopefully I’ve done that.” Ryan Shawcross’ tackle in 2010 that broke Aaron Ramsey’s leg and the unsavoury aftermath has not been forgotten by either team and the extra spice to the atmosphere has served Stoke well over the years. Crouch said: “The crowd are always so up for it, and that obviously gives us a boost. But we had a game plan and that worked to perfection. “I think it does help, everything that surrounds this game. There’s a bit of history, words have been exchanged and things have happened in the past. There is a little bit there and it’s always nice to make sure we get the win. “I’ve been an away player here before and I know it’s not a nice place to come. I’ve been here with Spurs, with Liverpool and, as a big club, you come here and it’s like, ‘Do we have to go to Stoke?’ “And that’s something that we have to maintain. It’s all right playing good football but we still have to have that fear factor and I think we’ve proved that we’ve still got that.” Mark Hughes made evolving Stoke’s style of play a priority when he took over as manager from Tony Pulis in the summer of 2013. Stoke have already beaten Manchester City and Tottenham as well as Arsenal this season but their three home defeats are as many as they suffered in the whole of last season. They could not have made a better start against Arsenal, with Crouch netting after just 19 seconds, and goals from Bojan Krkic and Jonathan Walters made it a dream first half. The Gunners have won only once on their last nine visits to Stoke and were three down at half-time on Saturday before fighting back to 3-2. It is the fixture Potters fans relish more than any other, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger a long-standing critic of Stoke’s style of play and physical approach. Press Association Stoke showed the Britannia Stadium’s fear factor is alive and well by sending Arsenal home with their tail between their legs, according to Potters striker Peter Crouch.
