Broadway to Dim Lights in Honor of Jimmy Nederlander

first_imgJimmy Nederlander Sr.(Photo: Bruce Glikas) View Comments Broadway and West End theaters will dim their lights in memory of legendary theater owner and producer James M. Nederlander Sr., who passed away on July 25 at age 94. Known as “Jimmy,” Nederlander was a visionary theatrical impresario; on August 3, the marquees of Broadway theaters in New York will be dimmed at exactly 7:45 PM for one minute, and dimmed in the West End in London at 7:00 PM before the evening’s performances commence.“Jimmy Nederlander’s name has been synonymous with quality theatrical productions in New York City and throughout the United States throughout his career, and in recent years his name has also come to symbolize excellence and achievement when “The Jimmy Award” is presented annually at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards. A tribute to his passion for arts education, his legacy will help to inspire the next generation of performers and enthusiasts,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League, in a statement. “Beloved by the industry, Jimmy was a loyal and trusted collaborator and a guiding mentor to so many. He was “one of a kind” and his indomitable spirit lives on throughout this country in the people he nurtured who are helping to make Broadway what it has become today. He will be sorely missed, and our thoughts are with his family and friends.”Julian Bird, Chief Executive of Society of London Theatre, added: “James Nederlander was a true titan of the theater industry. His beautiful theaters here in the West End, which are filled with thousands of people every night, are a testament to his vision and the organization he grew on both sides of the Atlantic. He was a friend and mentor to so many in the industry and he will be missed greatly. We are proud to acknowledge his extraordinary contribution to our industry with the dimming of London’s theater lights.”During a career that spans 70 years, Nederlander amassed a network of premier legitimate theaters including nine on Broadway: the Brooks Atkinson, Gershwin, Lunt-Fontanne, Marquis, Minskoff, Nederlander, Neil Simon, Richard Rodgers, and the world-renowned Palace; Chicago: Auditorium and Bank of America Theatres, Broadway Playhouse, Cadillac Palace and Oriental Theatres; in Los Angeles, the Pantages Theatre; and in London, an interest in the Adelphi, Aldwych, and Dominion Theatres.A recipient of many distinguished honors including the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement, Nederlander is survived by his wife Charlene S. Nederlander, his son James L. Nederlander and daughter-in-law Margo M. Nederlander, his grandchildren James M. Nederlander II and Kathleen M. Nederlander, his stepdaughter Kristina Gustafson and her children Gunnar Gustafson and Krisanna Gustafson.last_img read more

Mack Molding wins international manufacturing award

first_imgMack Group,Mack Molding was named a winner of Managing Automation Communications’ prestigious 2011 Progressive Manufacturing 100 Award last week at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, Palm Beach, FL. Mack was recognized for redefining the company as a major North American manufacturer in the new millennium. A decade ago, amidst the throes of a recession that drove major technology OEMs to offshore manufacturing, Mack crafted a new business model that would expand its position as both a contract manufacturer for the medical market, as well as a custom plastic molder of super-large parts. With great strides being made on both of those fronts, Mack has concentrated of late on the third leg of the business model ‘ big, bulky, complex products ‘ that diversify its markets beyond medical and emphasizes its services beyond injection molding. ‘This aspect of our business model drives us toward products that are too large to be manufactured efficiently overseas and too complex to be confidently and expediently managed from offshore locations,’ explains Jeff Somple, president, Mack Molding Northern Operations. Examples include a fully automated self-cleaning commercial milkshake blender, mail sorters and production mail systems, solar-powered municipal trash compactors and recycling systems, RFID inventory management systems, and insect control systems for lawn and garden care. In all instances, Mack’s vertical integration of services, including product development, plastics injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, machining, and total product assembly are called into play. Mack was honored along with a list of blue-ribbon manufacturing companies from around the world, including Caterpillar, Chevron, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Ford, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, and Nestle. ‘These companies have demonstrated an ability to rethink their businesses and apply advanced technologies in innovative ways that manufacturers everywhere would be well served to emulate,’ says David Brousell, a PM100 judge. ‘The PM100 winners this year are role models for the successful manufacturing company of today and in the future.’ About Mack MoldingMack Molding is a leading custom plastics molder and supplier of contract manufacturing services. Mack specializes in plastics design, prototyping, molding, sheet metal fabrication, and medical device manufacturing. Founded in 1920, Mack is a privately owned business that operates 10 facilities throughout the world. Don Kendall is president and CEO.

Burnley down and Hull set to follow

first_img Results elsewhere conspired to doom the Clarets, who had gone into the KC Stadium clash knowing they needed a win to stand any chance of staying up, and that even that might not be enough. Sean Dyche’s men kept their side of the bargain with a gutsy display capped by Ings’ 62nd-minute strike which ended a run of more than 10 hours without a goal. Press Association Danny Ings’ second-half winner was not enough to save Burnley from relegation out of the Barclays Premier League – and opponents Hull are now favourites to follow after this perilous defeat. Brady himself had his first chance to become Hull’s hero in the 37th minute when he clattered the top of Tom Heaton’s bar with the first of his free-kicks. Burnley boss Sean Dyche clearly took the decision to start to stretch the game at the start of the second half – although the way other results stood at the interval, even a winner would not have been enough to save them. Ashley Barnes sent an overhead free-kick crawling just wide of Steve Harper’s right-hand post and Matt Taylor also came close before the visitors had a penalty appeal turned down when Ings tumbled under McShane’s challenge in the box. Hull boss Steve Bruce threw on Nikica Jelavic on the hour and played three up front but two minutes later Burnley snatched a shock opener when the home defence failed to deal with Ben Mee’s ball into the box and Ings rifled home. Hernandez, introduced moments earlier for the ineffective Sone Aluko, came close with a neat back-heel which was held well by Heaton then Brady rattled the bar for the second time from a long-range free-kick. Bruce’s side launched a series of increasingly desperate attacks as the minutes ticked by but the Tigers were frustrated and will now have everything to do in their last two games if they are to avoid joining their opponents in relegation to the Championship. But it proved a dismal afternoon for the Tigers, who now look in serious danger of joining Burnley in the Championship as they languish in the drop zone with games against Tottenham and Manchester United to come. Robbie Brady twice slammed the woodwork from long-range free-kicks and substitute Abel Hernandez came close with a back-heel but the Tigers’ performance lacked the buzz with which they had set about beating Liverpool less than two weeks ago. Knowledge of Sunderland’s lunchtime win at Everton – which ensured Hull would start the game in the drop zone – can hardly have helped the atmosphere of tension as Steve Bruce’s side were largely frustrated during a tight first half. The visitors, for whom the mathematics of survival meant a win was the very least they required, were roared on by a defiant contingent of travelling fans but they too appeared short on ideas. Despite Stephen Quinn’s third-minute cross narrowly evading Ahmed Elmohamady in front of goal, most of City’s early play lacked the necessary sharpness. James Chester had to be alert to deny Ings a shooting opportunity after a clever through-ball from Ashley Barnes, but the Clarets showed few signs of grabbing the goal they needed to prolong their survival fight. Brady consistently posed problems down the left and in the 19th minute he got behind the Burnley defence and sent in a low cross which was cleared off the line by Jason Shackell. As the half went on Hull gained the ascendency, with Elmohamady heading just over from a Brady cross and Paul McShane also inches away with a header from a Brady corner from the left. last_img read more
