This is the story of a man who went from Yorkshire mill worker to Monte Carlo millionaire. Amongst the men 'who broke the bank at Monte Carlo', Joseph Hobson Jagger is unique. He is the only one known to have devised an infallible and completely legal system to defeat the odds at roulette and win a fortune. But he was not what might be expected. He wasn't a gentleman or an aristocrat, he wasn't a professional gambler, he was a Yorkshire textile worker who had laboured in the Victorian mills of Bradford since childhood. What led a man like this to travel nearly a thousand miles to the exclusive world of the Riviera when most people lived and died within a few miles of where they were born? The trains that took him there were still new and dangerous, he did not speak French and had never left the north of England. His motivation was strong. Joseph, his wife and four children, the youngest of whom was only two, faced a situation so grave that their only escape seemed to be his desperate gamble on the roulette tables of Monte Carlo. Today Jagger's legacy is felt in casinos worldwide and yet he is virtually unknown. Anne Fletcher is his great-great-great niece and in this true-life detective story she uncovers how he was able to win a fortune, what happened to his millions and why Jagger should now be regarded as the real 'man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo'.

All five films in the American teen dance franchise. 'Step Up' (2006) stars Channing Tatum as Tyler Gage, a rough street kid with raw talent. When Tyler finds himself doing community service at a school for the performing arts, he meets Nora (Jenna Dewan), a beautiful and privileged classically-trained dancer who's searching for a temporary replacement for her injured dance partner. Spying Tyler's smooth moves, Nora decides to take a chance on him... In 'Step Up 2 - The Streets' (2008), Andie (Briana Evigan) is a member of an elite inner-city dance crew called the 410. When the 410 pretend to be muggers on a subway car and then stage an impromptu dance show for the somewhat bewildered passengers, Andie's guardian (Sonja Sohn) ships her off to the Maryland School of the Arts. Andie's urban street style, of course, goes against the grain of the strait-laced school... In 'Step Up 3' (2010), a group of young underground street dancers in New York - including Luke (Rick Malambri) and Natalie (Sharni Vinson) - team up with NYU students Moose (Adam G. Sevani) and Camille (Alyson Stoner) to take on the world's best hip hop dancers in the ultimate street dancing contest, an experience that will alter the course of all their lives. Finally, in 'Step Up 4 - Miami Heat' (2012), Kathryn McCormick stars as Emily, a girl from a wealthy family who arrives in Miami hoping to become a professional dancer, and soon falls for poor boy Sean (Ryan Guzman), leader of flash mob street dance crew MOB. When Emily's father, a major property developer, threatens to build on the historic neighbourhood that is the MOB's home, Emily asks Sean and his crew to use their performance mobs to protest against the planned development... Finally, 'Step Up 5 - All In' (2014) follows multiple crews from the previous four films as they battle it out in Las Vegas for the chance of securing their own show in the entertainment capital of the world.

The Decades of Modern American Drama series provides a comprehensive survey and study of the theatre produced in each decade from the 1930s to 2009 in eight volumes. Each volume equips readers with a detailed understanding of the context from which work emerged: an introduction considers life in the decade with a focus on domestic life and conditions, social changes, culture, media, technology, industry and political events; while a chapter on the theatre of the decade offers a wide-ranging and thorough survey of theatres, companies, dramatists, new movements and developments in response to the economic and political conditions of the day. The work of the four most prominent playwrights from the decade receives in-depth analysis and re-evaluation by a team of experts, together with commentary on their subsequent work and legacy. A final section brings together original documents such as interviews with the playwrights and with directors, drafts of play scenes, and other previously unpublished material. The major playwrights and their works to receive in-depth coverage in this volume include: * Clifford Odets: Waiting for Lefty (1935), Awake and Sing! (1935) and Golden Boy (1937); * Lillian Hellman: The Children's Hour (1934), The Little Foxes (1939), and Days to Come (1936); * Langston Hughes: Mulatto (1935), Mule Bone (1930, with Zora Neale Hurston) and Little Ham (1936); * Gertrude Stein: Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights (1938), Four Saints in Three Acts (written in 1927, published in 1932) and Listen to Me (1936).

This title examines the life and achievements of a theater legend. ""Rediscovering Mordecai Gorelik"" explores the life and work of the pioneering scene designer whose career spanned decades in American theater. Anne Fletcher's insightful volume draws intriguing parallels and contrasts between Gorelik's productions and the theatrical movements of the twentieth century, exposing the indelible mark he left on the stage. Through in-depth analysis of his letters, diaries, designs, and theoretical works, Fletcher examines the ways in which Gorelik's productions can be used as a mirror to reflect the shifting dramatic landscapes of his times. Fletcher places Gorelik against the colorful historical backdrops that surrounded him - including the avant-garde movement of the 1920s, World War II, the Cold War, and absurdism - using the designer's career as a window into the theater during these eras. Within these cultural contexts, Gorelik sought to blaze his own unconventional path through the realms of theater and theory. Fletcher traces Gorelik's tenures with such companies as the Provincetown Players, the Theatre Guild, and the Theatre Union, as well as his relationships with icons such as Bertolt Brecht, revealing how his interactions with others influenced his progressive designs and thus set the stage for major dramatic innovations. In particular, Fletcher explores Gorelik's use of scenic metaphor: the employment of stage design techniques to subtly enhance the tone or mood of a production. Fletcher also details the designer's written contributions to criticism and theory, including the influential volume ""New Theatres for Old"", as well as other articles and publications. In addition to thorough examinations of several of Gorelik's most famous projects, ""Rediscovering Mordecai Gorelik"" contains explications of productions by such legends as John Howard Lawson, Clifford Odets, and Arthur Miller. Also included are numerous full-color and black-and-white illustrations of Gorelik's work, most of which have never been available to the public until now. More than simply a portrait of one man, this indispensable volume is a cultural history of American theater as seen through the career of a visionary designer and theoretician.

Contextualizing New Plays: Studies in Theatre Concepts, Forms, and Styles uses short, original plays as catalysts for discussing basic theatrical concepts, dramatic forms and genres, styles of production, thematic concerns, critical theory, and dramatic criticism. This book uses these short form plays as instructional tools with the pedagogical underpinnings needed to prepare students to successfully interact with full-length scripts. Each chapter introduces a playwright and his or her play, then discusses the particular form and style exemplified. After exploring this content, students are referred to longer plays of similar form and style, and participate in both individual and group exercises and activities that enable them to apply specific dramatic knowledge and skills including collective creation, image-tracking, magical realism, absurdism, and group playwriting. Contextualizing New Plays provides a welcome alternative to anthologies of full-length plays or working with numerous separate scripts. Developed for courses in theatre history, play analysis, and introduction to the theatre, it is equally suited to serve as a stand-alone text or as a supplemental reader.
