As previously announced, Tony Award winners Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen will return to Broadway in 2009 in the world premiere of Michael Jacobs’ Impressionism.

Tony winner Jack O’Brien will direct the production, which will begin previews Feb. 28, 2009, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, according to The New York Times. Opening night is scheduled for March 12. Additional casting and creative team will be announced at a later date.

The Schoenfeld, located at 236 West 45th Street, is currently the home of the revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, which will end its limited engagement Jan. 11, 2009.

Ostar Productions will produce Impressionism, which, press notes state, “is the story of a world traveling photojournalist and a New York gallery owner who discover each other and also that there might be an art to repairing broken lives.”

Playwright Jacobs is also the author of Cheaters, which was produced on Broadway in 1978 at the Biltmore Theatre; and Getting Along Famously, which was produced Off-Broadway at the Hudson Guild Theatre. His 15 television series have won the Emmy, People’s Choice, Parent’s Choice and Environmental Media Awards, among others.

Joan Allen won a Tony Award for her performance in Lanford Wilson’s Burn This, and she was also Tony-nominated for her work in The Heidi Chronicles. Allen has been nominated for three Academy Awards: for “The Contender,” “The Crucible” and “Nixon.”

Jeremy Irons won a Tony Award for his performance in the original Broadway production of The Real Thing. The English actor also won Academy and Golden Globe awards for his work in the 1990 film “Reversal of Fortune.” Irons was also Golden-Globe nominated for “The Mission” and “Brideshead Revisited.” Among his London stage credits are Embers and The Rover.

Emond plays Georgia’s friend Beck, with whom she travels on her life-changing trip to New Mexico.

Simmons portrays writer Jean Toomer, with whom she has an affair later in her life.

Jeremy Irons is guest of honour at fund-raiser

Remembering at West Hill Park

On Saturday 1st November 2008 a concert of Remembrance took place at West Hill Park School in Titchfield. The programme comprised of words and music drawn from the First World War to the present day. The concert was in aid of The Army Benevolent Fund, The Royal Naval Benevolent Trust, and Help for Heroes. Over £35,000 was raised through a combination of corporate sponsors, and generous donations. Corporate sponsors included Chemring PLC, who are based locally, Tesco, Forte Trust and PA Consulting.

The actor Jeremy Irons very kindly agreed to be Master of Ceremonies and readers included Lord Salisbury, Richard Todd OBE, Field Marshall The Lord Inge, General Sir Mike Jackson, Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles Ambassador to Kabul, ITN Political CorrespondentTom Bradby and the First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Jonathon Band.

The music was provided by The Clifton Singers, a locally based singing group, directed by Kate Morgan. There were some powerfully moving moments both in the readings and in the more serious music, particularly The Fallen, by Mark Bletchley. However, two medleys of songs from World War 1I and World War 2 provided some lighter notes and a powerful contrast between life at home and life in the trenches.

Hollywood star is guest of honour at fund-raiser

Words and music drawn from two world wars provided a memorable evening as actors and servicemen came together for a concert.
Actor Jeremy Irons took up the role of master of ceremonies at West Hill Park School in Titchfield for the concert in aid of The Army Benevolent Fund, The Royal Naval Benevolent Trust, and Help for Heroes.

Readers included the First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, former head of the Army, General Sir Mike Jackson, D-Day veteran and Dam Busters actor Richard Todd and ITN political editor Tom Bradbury.

Edward Hudson, headteacher of West Hill, said: ‘The readings from First World War and Second World War poetry were very moving. Most people will remember the vivid recount of veteran Richard Todd, a celluloid and real-life hero, when he captured the Pegasus bridge on D-Day.

‘The audience were hugely impressed with Jeremy Irons’ reading of Kipling’s poem Tommy and the Clifton Singers were memorable.

‘Lord David Poole worked hard to get people there or to give a donation. I’d also like to thank Chris Carey, a parent, who provided the lighting and sound effects. The evening would have seemed ordinary without them.’

More than £35,000 was raised through a combination of donations and sponsors including defence company Chemring PLC, Tesco, Forte Trust and PA Consulting.
