Phoenix Related Shows View Comments The Scott Organ play is directed by Jennifer DeLia. The one-night-stand will last a little bit longer. Phoenix, starring Julia Stiles and James Wirt, has extended its off-Broadway engagement at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Originally scheduled to run through August 23, the dark romantic comedy will now play its final performance on August 28. When Bruce (Wirt) and Sue (Stiles) meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let’s never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000-mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay. Show Closed This production ended its run on Aug. 28, 2014
Last weekend’s loss, inspired by Raheem Sterling’s hat-trick, was their biggest so far in what has been a difficult start to the season. The manager believes that going over their disappointing performance has helped them to get it out of their system, but explained that doing so was far from an easy process. Eddie Howe has revealed the difficulty Bournemouth experienced in re-watching their 5-1 Premier League defeat by Manchester City. “We’ve regrouped, we’ve evaluated and we’ve reflected,” Howe said. “I think we’ve constructively gone through the game. It was a difficult one to watch back for ourselves, for everybody, because we didn’t feel we did ourselves justice, especially with the goals we conceded. “But I think it’s a healthy situation, to review, and make sure you come out with positive outcomes from those reviews and move forward very quickly. We can focus on the next challenge ahead. “Certainly it’s not a time for us to dwell on any negatives or get too downbeat. It was always going to be a tough assignment for us. I think the big thing coming out for us was to make sure we tighten up, the goals we conceded were disappointing.” An anterior cruciate ligaments injury to Callum Wilson appears to have ended the striker’s season. Former Bolton and West Ham forward Ricardo Vaz Te, who has trained with Bournemouth over the past week, may be given the chance to replace him, but Howe says he has yet to take a decision on the Portuguese’s future. “Ricardo has come in and we’ve been really pleased with him, he’s looked good and bright and he’s certainly showed a really good attitude to his work,” Howe said. “He’s someone that we will continue to monitor and make a decision on in due course. He’s certainly, in terms of attitude and mentality, fitted well into the group.” Press Association
