Harold Prince to Direct a New Musical for the Atlantic Theater
New York Times/ArtsBeat Blog – by ERIK PIEPENBURG
The Tony Award-winning director Harold Prince, best known for his work on “The Phantom of the Opera” and other hugely successful Broadway musicals, will travel off Broadway to direct “The Band’s Visit,” a new musical by the composer David Yazbek (music and lyrics) and the playwright Itamar Moses (book) for the Atlantic Theater Company’s 2015-16 season, the theater announced on Friday. –
The Atlantic’s 2015-2016 season will begin this fall with a revival of the Caryl Churchill play “Cloud Nine,” directed by James Macdonald, who oversaw the acclaimed 2014 production of the writer’s “Love and Information.” In November the season will continue with the New York premiere of “These Paper Bullets!,” a Shakespeare-inspired musical with songs by the Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong and a book by the writer Rolin Jones. Based on “Much Ado About Nothing” and set in mod-era London, the show had its premiere at Yale Rep last year. The Atlantic mounting will be a coproduction with the Geffen Playhouse.

As Twitter Introduces Periscope, Tech Titans Bet on Live Streaming Video
New York Times/Technology – by MIKE ISAAC & VINDU GOEL
Tyra Banks smiled a toothy grin and chatted idly with a captive audience this week, showing off her new pixie haircut. She later flipped a blond-streaked auburn lock at the crowd, asking in a half-mocking tone, “How do you like me now?”
Ms. Banks was not on the set of her daytime television show or modeling on the runway at New York Fashion Week. She was staring into her smartphone camera while using a test version of Periscope, a live-streaming video app that Twitter introduced on Thursday, one among a surge of such apps with names like Meerkat and Camio that are taking the social media world by storm.
The premise of Periscope, Meerkat and others is simple: Capture video of yourself doing anything from exploring a new city to playing with your dog, all using nothing more than your smartphone camera. The apps notify others that you are streaming live video of yourself, and you can share it with your friends and followers.
