Jennifer Lawrence has always been relatable, from her red carpet falls to her penchant for wine chugging.

It may be the last ever tour of this particular production but it is the story that keeps on giving. Originally an award-winning movie, as a stage play The Full Monty has won both awards and hearts. In fact, such is the show’s popularity that as fast as one tour gets underway, producers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers are compelled to map out the next. Few shows can sustain that level of repetition. But then The Full Monty isn’t an ordinary show. “It is special,” insists Gary Lucy (famous for playing Luke Morgan in Hollyoaks as well as for roles in EastEnders, The Bill, Footballers’ Wives and as a Dancing on Ice winner) who plays Gaz. Having starred in almost every ‘Monty’ tour to date, he knows just how readily people fall for this funny, poignant and bitter-sweet story. “People really love it. From proper theatregoers in Cambridge to Blackpool hen parties, everyone has an absolute ball. It is a gift of a role for me.” Louis Emerick, … [Read more...] about Full Monty cast reveal all ahead of Belgrade Theatre show
The league isn't usually like this for the Dubs. Only twice in the last decade had they lost their opening match. The three-point loss in Clones is their heaviest defeat since Donegal beat them in the 2014 All-Ireland semi-final. Dublin seemed unusually vulnerable yesterday. This was the kind of game where they normally eke out a result. Failure to do so raises questions about their ability to maintain the hunger of the last four years. It may also be that dominance has bred a slight arrogance. Midway through the first-half the visitors went six points up thanks to two fine Con O'Callaghan points inside a minute. Monaghan were on the ropes, but Dublin eased off and engaged in protracted possession football, twice picking out keeper Evan Comerford with pointless back-passes. This spell evoked memories of the infamous 'swagger' which afflicted Dublin teams in the fallow years before Gilroy and Gavin. The lapse into self-indulgence enabled Monaghan to gain the initiative. By the break … [Read more...] about Eamonn Sweeney: ‘Monaghan offer hope for All-Ireland rivals as Dublin’s hunger gets called into question’
