If Idina Menzel were not so super talented, then If/Then would be such a Debbie Downer of a show - more so than it already is!
Unfortunately, this is no Wicked or Rent.
If/Then fails to serve the greatness that is its leading lady and her big Broadway return in 10 years is dampened by a show that is underwhelming at best and laborious throughout.
The whole concept of the show, a musical ripoff of the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, does a disservice to the material and actors. If/Then would have worked A LOT better as a musical comedy! The show is a dramatic musical, but you're not very invested in the characters because you don't have time to be. The action is split into two alternating stories that explore the different consequences Idina's character would have been faced with if she made different decisions in her life.
Brian Yorkey's book literally made us groan repeatedly. There were so many moments we wanted to pull our hair out throughout the show, but the…

112 бабуини

112 бабуини в зоопарка Емен диеренпарк в северна Холандия се държат странно и все едно са обявили стачка, констатират служителите на зоологическата градина.
В понеделник привечер животните буквално изпаднали в паника без видима причина и започнали да се държат неадекватно. Във вторник и в сряда се оттеглили в короните на дърветата, някои останали на земята, почти не се движели и рядко посягали към храната. Всичките 112 африкански маймуни демонстративно обръщали гърбовете си към посетителите, с които иначе се държали дружелюбни. Служители на зоопарка твърдят, че подобно поведение приматите демонстрират за четвърти път в рамките на 20 г., но никога не е било намерени обяснение за странното държане на маймуните.
Появиха се редица хипотези защо маймуните са истерясали: видели някакъв хищник – на живо или нарисуван на фланелка на посетител; усетили са земетресение или друг природен катаклизъм. Според зоолог от зоологическата градина най-налудничавото обяснение било, че бабуините засекли НЛ…

The sheep took a hit from the right wing when the pilot was forced to touch down due to engine failure

But a report revealed it was the plane that came off worse in the emergency.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch said: “The sheep was struck by the right wing which suffered damage, but the sheep appeared to

Wet Mars as it may have appeared billions of years ago. Image courtesy of The Atlantic, click image for info. Congress sucked in 2012 and we all know why. But it wasn't a total loss, there was at least one last second holiday gift under the people's tree:
Whether you're a homeowner who bought an energy-saving refrigerator last year or a company hoping to build a wind farm, the tax package Congress just approved may give you a reason to cheer.
"It's got something in there, a Christmas gift if you will, for almost everyone — American homeowners, workers who commute via transit, and manufacturers of efficient equipment like clothes washers, dryers, refrigerators," says Kateri
