Meryl & Me: Beth Leavel on Swapping Roles with Streep in The Prom & Devil Wears Prada

first_img View Comments “If you’re going to give your child to someone, I think Meryl’s probably the best person,” Tony winner Beth Leavel jokes about swapping roles with three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep. Leavel is referring to the fact that Streep will be playing Leavel’s Tony-nominated role of stage diva Dee Dee Allen in the Netflix adaptation of Broadway’s The Prom. Meanwhile, Leavel will take on Streep’s Oscar-nommed role of fashion editor Miranda Priestly in the upcoming Devil Wears Prada musical. Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada(Fox 2000 Pictures) Beth Leavel(Photo by Emilio Madrid for Broadway.com) Beth Leavel with Brooks Ashmanskas in The Prom on Broadway(Photo: Deen van Meer) Beth Leavel Leavel, who recently triumphed in a sold-out concert engagement at Feinstein’s/54 Below, is clearly taking the swap in stride, expressing excitement about her upcoming project. “I can’t wait to play this phenomenal role, this strong woman with so many complexities. And she’s going to look gorgeous,” Leavel says of Miranda. “The Devil Wears Prada is one of my favorite films ever, and I don’t know many people who don’t feel that way. I’m so excited to see how this creative team [Elton John, Shaina Taub, Paul Rudnick and Anna D. Shapiro] are going to make it sing. Not all movies lend themselves to song. I think that this one does, so I’m going to sit back and enjoy this journey,” Leavel says, adding, “Dear Diary, This is going to be a great time in my life. Love, Beth.”The Prom film adaptation is currently in production, and the original Broadway cast, who lovingly developed the musical but are not starring in the film, are happy for the show’s next incarnation. “We had slowly but surely been building up the message and the fanbase of the show, and then to know Ryan Murphy loved it so much that he was going to make it into a film was astonishing,” Leavel says, noting that the Broadway cast can’t wait to see the final film. “We already talked about it. I think we’re going to have a big viewing party at someone’s house and just share. It will be a celebration!” The Devil Wears Prada Star Files Is it bittersweet to see The Prom with its new cast? (In addition to Streep, the film’s company includes James Corden, Nicole Kidman and Andrew Rannells). “The original stars knew that chances were we wouldn’t be a part of that, and, of course, we had to mourn that loss. But ultimately, how ever we can get the message of The Prom to the most people should be the most important thing. Here’s the child I gave birth to, world. Have at it. I’m thrilled that it’s going to be seen everywhere.”With so much in common, one might think Leavel and Streep are pals now. But that’s not the case (yet). “Now Meryl and I are two degrees of separation,” Leavel notes. “I do hope I get to meet her. If she’s in Midtown and would like a cup of tea or just has to go to the bathroom, please just call me.” Related Showslast_img read more

Misconduct-related separation from the military linked with risk of being homeless

first_imgShare on Facebook Share on Twitter The analysis included 448,290 active-duty service members separated during this time period. Homelessness was determined by code (43 percent), participation in a homelessness program (35 percent), or both (27 percent). Although only 6 percent (n = 24,992) separated for misconduct, they represented 26 percent of homeless veterans at first VHA encounter (n = 322), 28 percent within 1 year (n = 1,141), and 21 percent within 5 years (n = 709). Incidence of homelessness was significantly greater for misconduct vs normal separations at first VHA encounter (1.3 percent vs 0.2 percent) and increased with time since first VHA encounter: within 1 year (5.4 percent vs 0.6 percent); at 5 years (9.8 percent vs 1.4 percent).The authors write that these findings support reports of recently returned veterans with records of misconduct having difficulties reentering civilian life. “This association takes on added significance because the incidence of misconduct-related separations is increasing at a time when ending homelessness among veterans is a federal government priority.”“Identification of those with misconduct-related separations and provision of case management and rehabilitative services at separation by the Department of Defense and the VHA should be investigated as methods to prevent homelessness.” Pinterest Emailcenter_img Among U.S. veterans who returned from Afghanistan and Iraq, being separated from the military for misconduct was associated with an increased risk of homelessness, according to a study in the August 25 issue of JAMA.Adi V. Gundlapalli, M.D., Ph.D., M.S., of the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System, Salt Lake City, and colleagues analyzed Veterans Health Administration (VHA) data from U.S. active-duty military service members who were separated (end date of last deployment) from the military between October 2001 and December 2011, deployed in Afghanistan or Iraq, and eligible for and subsequently used VHA services. Homelessness was determined by a coding assignment of “lack of housing” during a VHA encounter, by participation in a VHA homelessness program, or both.The U.S. Department of Defense assigns a code upon separation from military service. These codes were categorized into misconduct (drugs, alcoholism, offenses, infractions, other), disability, early release, disqualified, normal, and other or unknown.

Barristers to face new standard of proof in disciplinary cases

first_imgThe Legal Services Board (LSB) has granted permission for the bar regulator to change the standard of proof applied in disciplinary proceedings, a move which could make it easier for barristers to be sanctioned.In a statement today, LSB chief executive Neil Buckley said: ‘We have agreed a rule change application from the BSB, which brings their approach on assessing professional misconduct into line with that adopted by other professional regulators.’In November last year, the BSB agreed to lower the standard of proof, pending LSB approval, downgrading it from the criminal standard to the civil standard.Currently the BSB and the cases it brings before the Bar Tribunal and Adjudication Service, rely on the criminal standard of proof; whereby wrongdoing has to be proved beyond reasonable doubt. Under the new standard, cases will be determined on the balance of probabilities.The change will come into force from March next year.At the time it agreed to the change the BSB stressed that only cases that come to the tribunal after the agreed implementation date will be tried under the new standard, meaning there would be a  ‘crossover period’ under which both standards would be applied.As it stands the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal operates the criminal standard as well but a consultation on shifting to the civil standard closed this week.last_img read more

First new Stansted Express trainset delivered

first_imgThe 25 kV 50 Hz Class 745/1 EMUs for the Stansted Express service are technically similar to the 10 Class 745/0 units which Greater Anglia has ordered for London – Norwich inter-city services.
