David Rhodes’ Consent Will Receive Premiere Off-Broadway

first_imgConsent will premiere off-Broadway at The Black Box Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The new play, penned and helmed by David Rhodes, will play a limited engagement beginning June 2; opening night is scheduled for June 11.The cast of Consent will include Catherine Curtin (Orange Is The New Black, The Lady of Dubuque, Love, Janis), Michael Goldstein (Belgrade Trilogy), Mark McCullough Thomas (Our Lady of 121st Street, Guiding Light) and Angela Pierce (You Don’t Know Jack, Unburden).Ron Sullivan, former pro-NFL player and award-winning architect, is experimenting with sexual freedom in his SoHo loft. Done with coming out and nearly divorced from his high school sweetheart, Ron has a chance encounter with Kurt, a hot Yale law student, that pushes him to the edge of his sexual boundaries…or beyond them. The passion that follows transforms both men, and ripples into the lives of Ron’s wife and his sister Emily. Emily questions the ethics and risks of sex games, but it’s ultimately up to the audience to determine who is seducing whom in the murky realm of power play and consent.The production will feature scenic design by Scott Tedmon-Jones, costume design by Izzy Fields, lighting design by John Eckert, sound design by Chad Raines, video design by Chelsie McPhilimy and props by Addison Herren.Consent is not a production of Roundabout Theatre Company although it is playing in a Roundabout space.

Yvette D. Clarke Says House of Representative Has Enough Votes to…

first_imgYvette Clarke NEW YORK, CMC – Caribbean American Democratic Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke says the US House of Representatives has enough votes to impeach President Donald Trump, as efforts continue in the impeachment probe.“In all likelihood, we have the votes,” Clarke, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, told the Caribbean Media Corporation on Saturday, stating that 236 members of the House of Representatives have “indicated that they support the inquiry.”A simple majority vote by the full House of Representatives, where Democrats outnumber Republicans 235-198 (in addition to one independent and one vacant seat), would be required to impeach Trump, according to the US Constitution.At present, six US House of Representatives’ committees are probing Trump’s alleged misconduct that could result in impeachment. Clarke, the representative for the 9th Congressional District in Brooklyn, New York, said, while Democrats are confident of the votes to impeach Trump, they are going through the formality. “The committees have subpoenaed witnesses,” she said. “Then, it’ll (process) eventually move to the floor (for the vote on impeachment).“It’s a matter of building the case,” Clarke added. “We are making sure that the American people are fully informed (about Trump’s alleged wrongdoings).”If the House votes to impeach the president, the articles of impeachment go to the Senate for trial, at which the chief justice of the US Supreme Court presides, the US Constitution states.It says that two-thirds of the members of Senate are required to convict the president. If he’s convicted, he’s removed from office.However, Trump may have history on his side, because no previous impeachment inquiry has resulted in a conviction in the Senate. Former US presidents Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson were acquitted in the Senate.  Former President Richard Nixon resigned before the House voted on impeachment.Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, on September 24, initiated an impeachment inquiry against President Trump in the wake of revelations that Trump and top administration officials had allegedly put pressure on leaders of foreign countries, primarily Ukraine, aimed at advancing the president’s personal interests.A whistleblower report, which has implicated Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani and US Attorney General William Barr, has alleged widespread abuse of power and cover-up by Trump and his administration.The report also alleged that Trump and Giuliani pressured the Ukrainian Government to probe former US Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Joe Biden is among the leading Democratic candidates for the 2020 US Presidential Election.last_img read more
