Cast Is Set For Of “The Red Shoes”

The role of Victoria Page, the girl who dreams of being a great dancer, was created by New Adventures leading lady Ashley Shaw in a career defining performance. She will perform the role at the Ahmanson Theatre, as will New Adventures rising star Cordelia Braithwaite who has also received great praise for her interpretation.

“It’s a feast for the eye, with every scene animated by sharp detail and witty characterization,” said Luke Jennings of The Observer in his review of the London engagement. “Bourne choreographs with the lightest of touches, threading in references to Hollywood movies and Diaghilev-era ballets as he goes. ‘The Red Shoes,’ I’m certain, will be dancing for years to come.” Read more

Lomachenko vs. Marriaga & MORE!

"I can't wait to get back in the ring on August 5th," said Lomachenko. "I respect all of my opponents who are willing to step in ring with me and I will be at my best to show the boxing fans what boxing is all about it."

"I'm excited to fight on ESPN because so many people will be able to see me. It reminds me of the old days when the best fights were on ESPN so it's cool that Top Rank and ESPN are doing these shows together," said Beltran. "As for my fight I always respect my opponent, but I've knocked out the past five and they had my respect as well. I expect Vasquez to come to fight, but I have a bigger goal to be a world champion, so August 5th is part of that journey and I will not let Vasquez or anyone get in the way of my goal. I'm sure Vasquez and I will make it a great fight for the fans." Read more
