  • Kelli O’Hara & Matthew Morrison Talk Carnegie Hall, Cheese Grits & More

    first_img O’HARA: You’ve had cheese grits at least three or four times from me. Q: What can we look forward to hearing you sing, Matt? MORRISON: I think I’ve had them. Is that your family recipe cheese grits? Q: What is your favorite family Christmas tradition? O’HARA: My mom does themed Christmases. So every year, the dinner is themed. It’s actually really fun because it makes every Christmas the same but different. She gets pretty creative. Q: Matt, what are you looking forward to most about bringing Finding Neverland to Broadway this spring? MORRISON: We were. It kicked our asses, though. Q: And Kelli, you just wrapped up your own Peter Pan experience. How does it feel now that it’s all over? O’HARA: My memory is [Matt’s] audition. I saw so many guys come through. I had never seen you before; I didn’t know who you were. I’ll never forget when you came in the room and it was just absolutely, unmistakably clear that you were going to be it. MORRISON: I’m going to add a little Hawaiian flair to the evening. I’m singing “Mele Kalikimaka,” which is the traditional Hawaiian Christmas song, and I’m going to bust out my ukulele. Q: What’s the craziest memory you two have of working on Piazza? MORRISON: Yeah, we’re basically learning this show on our own and then we’ll come together. Which I’m not worried about, because we already have this built-in chemistry. O’HARA: Yeah. It’s fantastic. There’s a great history to it. There’s a vast expanse that makes you feel pretty powerful. Well, you feel like a tiny little ant, but powerful at the same time. And that huge orchestra and ensemble—The Essential Voices—what it is is empowering. O’HARA: We look so happy! O’HARA: I’m southern! We always have cheese grits. Nearly 10 years after playing lovebirds in The Light in the Piazza, Tony nominees Kelli O’Hara and Matthew Morrison are reuniting on stage. The pair will bring yuletide cheer to Carnegie Hall on December 19 and 20 in Kelli and Matthew: Home for the Holidays, backed by the incomparable New York Pops and the Essential Voices choir. Morrison, who’s busy shooting Glee in Los Angeles, and O’Hara, in the midst of rehearsals for The Merry Widow at the Metropolitan Opera, hopped on a conference call with us to recount their busy 2014, share cheesy Christmas traditions and plan an imaginary Hawaiian dream vacation. MORRISON: I think we’ve all grown up with Peter Pan in our lives. What I love about Finding Neverland is the story behind the story. It has great themes of using your imagination and never growing up and keeping that child inside of you always. It’s such a great message. MORRISON: I’ve only performed there once in a benefit concert, so I’m really excited to take more ownership of the evening with one of my dear friends. Q: What’s the must-have dish on your Christmas dinner table? O’HARA: I’ve done [long runs of shows], and there is something beautiful about that, because it gets richer and you can deepen your performance. But I’m also a person who loves to do lots of things and move on. So I was OK to do it and then step away and go back to something else. MORRISON: Kelli, you’ve performed there before, right? Q: What’s your all-time favorite Christmas song?center_img Q: With the two of you currently on opposite coasts, what’s the preparation process been like for this concert? O’HARA: [Laughs.] That’s mine too! MORRISON: Good! There was a debate of who was going to sing that song at the concert, and all I want to do is hear Kelli sing it. O’HARA: Matt sends me recordings of him running through something so I can hear his part and I’m trying to learn my part. We haven’t even seen each other. The day before, we’re going to see each other for the first time to run through things. MORRISON: Oh, you’re so freakin’ country. I love you. MORRISON: Let’s do it in Hawaii! O’HARA: Yes! MORRISON: [Christmas] has been my one break from Glee, so my wife and I always get on a plane on Christmas Day. We pick a place to go and head to the airport. I’m sure when we have kids that’ll change, and we’ll have some new family traditions. O’HARA: No, that’s perfect! You can wake up, do your Santa Claus, and then go right to the airport and go to a brilliant island and swim in the ocean. And I’m going to come along as your nanny. With my kids! MORRISON: For me, it was jumping on board when a lot of people had done it before. I was lost in this world of Italy and crazy operatic voices and I was like, “What am I doing here?!” I felt out of my comfort zone, but it was so rewarding. MORRISON: Aww, we were babies. O’HARA: No, it’s always a surprise. Q: Maybe you could do Hawaiian this year and have Matt play the ukulele. MORRISON: I have to say, every time I hear “O Holy Night”… Q: Kelli and Matt, you’re both on the line. MORRISON: Oh, those are so good. That’s my answer, too. Kelli’s family recipe cheese grits. For Kelli’s wedding, one of the coolest things was this recipe booklet as a gift from her family, which I still use to this day. Q: Do you know what this year’s theme is? O’HARA: CHEESE GRITS. Q: What makes performing an iconic space like Carnegie Hall so special? O’HARA: Matty, guess where I am! I’m in the breezeway at Lincoln Center, standing right in front of our The Light in the Piazza poster, looking at how young we were. Catch Kelli O’Hara and Matthew Morrison at Carnegie Hall on December 19 and 20. View Commentslast_img read more

  • Sage advice from the business titans of “Shark Tank”

    first_img“Shark Tank”, the Emmy award-winning reality television series, returns this weekend with its ninth season. For those not familiar with the hit show, it showcases aspiring entrepreneurial contestants who pitch their business ideas to millionaire (or billionaire in some cases) “shark” investors. Many of us that watch the program may not dream of starting million-dollar business ventures, but we can gain much from the business advice shared by its enormously successful “shark” panel.Great ideas capture attention, but expertise is everythingContestants approach the panel with their initial business pitch, hoping to make a great first impression. Those that stand out immediately grab their audience’s attention and leave them wanting more. While this is an extraordinary first step in standing out from the crowd, smart businesspeople understand that the idea is not enough. In order to prove they are worth investing in, they must demonstrate their knowledge in what exactly it will take to see their venture to fruition.Egos are second to customer satisfactionProfessional businesspeople who have seen success have obviously showcased the moxie and strength needed for getting ahead. But, many also possess too-high opinions of themselves and their endeavors. When an arrogant contestant approaches the “sharks,” it is often instantly apparent that their ego is an issue and the customer comes second. While it’s important they be confident in themselves and their work, demonstrating a real interest in and true understanding of their target market is essential to establishing loyalty and trust.A plan for business growth is invaluableHaving a great idea and earning the interest of potential investors is noteworthy, but to actually sustain their support and the resources needed it’s essential to have a strong business plan in place. To really get others behind their work, professionals must constantly be looking to the next level. Even if the “sharks” are initially fascinated by a potential business idea, if they are not provided with a solid framework for every aspect of the company’s business model (often including, manufacturing, distribution, and pricing), their interest diminishes almost immediately. This is a lesson to professionals to keep looking ahead and to always map out exactly what it will take to meet their objectives. 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

  • Chip technology helped reduce counterfeit fraud by 80 percent

    first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Visa set the path for the U.S. payments industry to begin the shift to EMV® (which stands for Europay, Mastercard and Visa) chip cards in 2011.

Since the EMV shift, the adoption of chip technology has reduced card present (CP) counterfeit payment fraud by 80 percent at chip-enabled merchants.During the most recent period ending in December 2018, Visa saw continued growth across the number of chip cards and chip-enabled merchants, payment and transaction volume since before the shift to EMV chip launched in October 2015.

  • Compliance: CPFB issues payday rule compliance guide

    first_imgThe Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) last week released a small entity compliance guide for its short-term, small-dollar loan rule, otherwise known as the “payday” rule. Though the bureau proposed updates to the rule earlier this month, that proposal does not address the payment-related requirements of the rule covered in this small entity compliance guide.According to the bureau, the guide highlights information that may be helpful when implementing the payment-related questions of the rule. However, the CFPB strongly emphasized that the guide is not a substitute for reviewing the rule itself.The rule applies to lender that make “covered loans,” which generally include: continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

  • Villa Vulin was named the leading luxury boutique hotel in Croatia and Europe

    first_imgBritish LUX Life magazine as part of the Global Luxury Hotel & Spa award for 2018, he chose five-star hotel in Pula, Villa Vulin as the leading luxury hotel in Croatia.The Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards is designed to recognize companies, brands and individuals with a growing luxury hospitality industry – those who go above and beyond. “It is confirmed that only persistent work and uncompromising direction can achieve top results. He thanks his team for their commitment, because without teamwork we would not be what we are. In the class of our hotel, currently no posthat world award that we did not win. This is our gift to our beloved city of Pula”Proudly points out the owner and director of the hotel Vaso Vulin. By the way, the mentioned recognition is just another in a series for the Pula hotel Villa Vulin, because only last year it received a total of 10 recognitions and valuable awards. Among the most important is certainly the one from the International Hotel Awards 2017-2018 in London, where Villa Vulin was named the best small hotel in Europe, and the best small five-star hotel by Croatian standards, and the icing on the cake was at the Oscars in the hotel industry in St. Moritz.These are the biggest trophies so far, ie the recognition that a small hotel in the world has, points out Vaso Vulin and adds that he is very satisfied that all the work and effort after so many years has borne fruit. “It will be a beautiful legacy for my family, but also a great honor for our city, the whole of Istria and Croatia. At the same time, it is a great obligation to continue to maintain the quality of our service at a high level. ” says Vulin.But as we all know how often it is harder to maintain the same level of service and defend the title of best in a particular category, I was interested in what the “formula for success” is and how to maintain the same level of service. As Vaso Vulin points out, the magic formula for this success and keeping the service at a high level are personal limits, perseverance, striving for perfection, culture and the goal that every hotelier sets for himself. “One of the most important points I had was positioning and creating a brand, first of all in Croatia, and then in Europe and the world. And that requires hard work for at least three years, with a good knowledge of management. Of course, there is always the question of investment, not only material but also other aspects recognized by guests from around the world, but it must always be based on simple and “perfect” things. Whoever sets himself the priority of profit and earnings, will not go beyond his own threshold, such a philosophy is a utopia, these are just some of the elements that make magic, of course with the city itself which is beautiful, beaches, kindness, region, state .. “Vulin points out and adds that the key is the synergy of all tourist participants because everyone has to work together to achieve the result, because one man is not able to do everything alone.It is interesting how Vulin metaphorically described and set the whole story, like digging a mine. ” If we were to compare business to a mine, and that is certainly a mine, then I chose platinum, and I had to behave that way. Tracking all world trends, but not plagiarism but a focus on authenticity and uniqueness. “Says Vulin.By the way, Villa Vulin is the first facility with a high level of 5-star service in Pula, and the logical question is whether Pula is ready for accommodation at that high level as well as the content and offer for such demanding guests. According to Vulin, Pula certainly has a lot of potential, but above all it lacks such important synergies of all participants. ” Pula certainly has potential and a story that can attract guests of high purchasing power, but the results would be much better if the tourist boards, HGK, agencies and everyone else act united and enlarged because we all have the same goal, which is quality strategic tourism development. ” concludes Vulin.last_img read more
