Brian Dennehy & Mia Farrow Discuss Bringing Love Letters to B’way

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 14, 2014 Love Letters Tony winner Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow return to the Great White Way beginning September 13 in A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. The pair stopped by The Today Show to discuss launching this revival, which will feature a rotating cast of stars in limited engagements. “You cannot stage a play more simply than this,” Dennehy says. “All you do is speak it. The writer wants you to just hear the words…and you will provide the emotions for yourself.” Farrow proved that their affection for each other is not just an act: “There’s a compelling reason to do a play if Brian’s in it, but also, this is an exquisite play.” And while we’ll have to wait just a day more to see the two on stage, Dennehy revealed, “We have no twerks in this play.” Damn. Catch the twerk-less Dennehy and Farrow in Love Letters at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, opening officially on September 18! View Comments Related Showslast_img read more

first_imgThe Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.The Atlantic Coast Conference will follow a football schedule this fall that consists of 10 conference games and one nonconference game, the conference announced in a release Wednesday. Those 11 games will be spread out over 13 weeks beginning the week of Sept. 7-12, with teams continuing to have two bye weeks during the season.The ACC’s approach to the football schedule is similar to the conference-only scheduling format the Big Ten and Pac-12 are implementing, albeit with the extra nonconference opponent. Before Wednesday’s announcement, Syracuse had already lost two football opponents, Rutgers and Colgate, after the Big Ten’s scheduling pivot and Patriot League’s cancelation of fall sports.“The Board’s decision presents a path, if public health guidance allows, to move forward with competition,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in the release. “We recognize that we may need to be nimble and make adjustments in the future. We will be as prepared as possible should that need arise.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUnder the ACC’s scheduling model, Syracuse will face Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, NC State and Wake Forest at home and play Clemson, Louisville, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh on the road. The Orange’s one nonconference game — which under ACC guidelines must be played in New York, Syracuse’s home state — hasn’t been released yet.Fall Olympic sports, competitions that the ACC had previously delayed until Sept. 1, can begin games Sept. 10. Each team will follow a conference schedule with the NCAA’s minimum amount of games. Regular-season meets for cross-country can be scheduled as normal, and the conference championship will take place in Cary, North Carolina on Oct. 30. The minimum is 10 games for volleyball and six games for men’s soccer, women’s soccer and field hockey.Additional conference games won’t count in the standings, and any nonconference opponents must adhere to ACC medical standards, the release states.“It is incumbent upon all of us in the Syracuse Athletics Department to strictly adhere to the protocols we and the ACC have in place,” Director of Athletics John Wildhack said in a statement.
