Broadway’s new musical, Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark is perpetually experiencing delays that continue to push back the show’s official opening date. After numerous injured actors, and countless rescheduled opening nights, there are rumors circulating that the opening night of this problem-proned musical may be pushed back to an even later date.

Rumor has it that the producers of the musical are considering a change in the current opening date of Tuesday, March 15. They may be looking to push it back until June, but either way the show is yearning for an official opening night. The show has been in previews since last year, which means Spider-Man is on it’s way to becoming the musical with the most preview shows.

If the opening date is pushed back until June, the performance on March 15 would act as a “celebration of sorts for the work done so far.” Although the early performances of Spider-Man the musical received poor reviews, the musical has come a long way since then. Many of the technical kinks have been worked out, and many aspects are being tweaked in order to improve the story and overall quality of the production.

With a $65 million budget, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is the most expensive Broadway production in history. When the show finally opens, it will truly be something spectacular and entertaining to all audiences.

Last night the Notre Dame Fighting Irish defeated the Seton Hall Pirates 60-48, and became one step closer to clinching a double bye for the Big East Tournament. Coming home from three consecutive wins on the road, the Irish were able to improve their home record to 16-0 with their victory over the Pirates.

Although the Irish were able to beat the Pirates, it was not a pretty feat. Notre Dame shot at 32 percent, and had seven turnovers during the game’s first half. Luckily they were only down by three points at halftime, and were easily able to make it up. Early in the second half, Notre Dame took control and did not fall behind the rest of the game.

The ninth-ranked Notre Dame will have their chance to make their hopes of getting a double bye come true on Monday night when they face the No. 15 Villanova Wildcats. If the Irish win on Monday night, then this will mark the first time in three years that they have gone undefeated at home.

The Big East Tournament will be held on Tuesday, March 8 through Saturday, March 12, 2011 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Coming soon… a new Broadway Musical will be hitting the stages of Broadway. Revived for Broadway, Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a new musical that is based on an Oscar winning film by Allan Scott and Stephen Elliot.

This quirky and outrageous musical is becoming known as the theatre’s best “feel-good” experience. It follows the lives of three close friends, who also happen to be drag queens. They take an old bus on a trip across the Australian outback in the pursuit of friendship and love. In the end, these three friends find more than they ever expected.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert is directed by Simon Phillips, and has a talented cast of Olivier and Tony Award nominees. Tony Sheldon will play Bernadette, Will Swenson will portray Tick/Mintzi, while Nick Adams plays the characters of Adam/Felicia. Bette Midler, most known for her stage and screen presence, will also be joining the production team.

The show will begin on Broadway in New York City after first performing a limited 12-week engagement this fall at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Priscilla Queen of the Desert will open at the Palace Theatre on Sunday, March 20, 2011 with previews beginning on Monday, February 28, 2011.

Earlier this month, the match between the US Men’s National Soccer team and Egypt that scheduled to be played in Cairo was cancelled. The cancellation spawned from Egypt’s current state of turmoil, as people have been protesting against the 30 years that President Hosni Mubarak has spent controlling the throne.

When U.S. Soccer President, Sunil Gulati, spoke regarding the cancellation, he said, “We were excited about the opportunity to play against Egypt, but due to the current situation all parties agreed it was best to cancel the match.” Each country would have called upon their best players for this exciting FIFA international match, but since the cancellation they were unable to do so. Unfortunately, the US has not planned to reschedule the match.

Keeping that in mind, the next game that the U.S. team will take the field for will be on March 26, 2011. The team will take on two-time FIFA World Cup champions, Argentina, at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. So far, over 30,000 tickets have been sold for this epic match.

This game is an exciting event that you will not want to miss. Don’t wait, and act fast! Get your USA vs Argentina Tickets from Select A Ticket now!

On Sunday, 41,000 fans packed into McMahon Stadium in Calgary, Alberta Canada to experience the National Hockey League’s exciting Heritage Classic. This year’s game was special, as it was the first time in eight years that Canada has hosted an outdoor game. Additionally, it allowed the Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames to re-ignite a rivalry that was sparked in the late 1980s.

The Flames took a 4-0 victory over the Canadiens, which can be hugely accredited to goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff. Three periods, and 39 saves later, Kiprusoff now holds the record for getting the first shutout in the history of NHL outdoor games. Although Kiprusoff had a great performance during Sunday’s game, there are other players on the Flames who helped to secure their victory.

Left wing Rene Bourque scored the leading two goals for Calgary, allowing them to get an initial head start over the Canadiens. These two goals were extremely vital in their victory, and were reinforced by goals made by Anton Babchuck and Alex Tanguay.

Although not officially announced yet, it is rumored that the location for the 2012 Heritage Classic will be in Toronto, Canada. Do not miss your chance to experience this exciting NHL game live for yourself!

And the winner of the 2011 Daytona 500 is… who? At the age of 20 years and one day, Trevor Bayne became the youngest person in history to win the Daytona 500. His surprising Daytona 500 win was certainly unexpected, but Bayne and many NASCAR fans are pumped about it.

Bayne broke Jeff Gordon’s record of winning his first Daytona 500 when he was 25 years old. For Bayne, this must have been a huge honor. He looks up to Gordon so much that he even has a poster of him in his room. Bayne admitted that it was “crazy” when all of his idols, including Gordon, congratulated him on his victory.

“These are guys that I have pictures with when I was like 5 years old, and they’re my childhood heroes,” he said. “So to have them racing with me and then coming to Victory Lane to congratulate me, it’s been a dream come true.”

Bayne is the youngest Daytona 500 winner, and he is also among the most inexperienced. This year’s race was just his second NASCAR race ever. However, his success in this race proves that he will be around in the world of NASCAR for awhile.

Next year’s Daytona 500 will be held on February 26, 2012 at the Daytona International Speedway in sunny Daytona Beach, Florida.

There are only 73 days left until the exciting 2011 Kentucky Derby. Preparation for this Triple Crown race has already begun, and will continue with three preparatory races beginning this Saturday.

The races will kick off on Saturday at the Fair Grounds in Louisiana with the Risen Star Stakes. They will continue with Sunday’s San Vicente at Santa Anita, followed by Monday’s Southwest at Oaklawn Park. It is likely that from these stakes, possible top contenders for this year’s Derby could become evident.

Although top contenders will inevitably emerge through this trio of races, they could also surface during the first Derby Futures pool that opened today at noon. Uncle Mo seems to be the individual favorite at 2-1, but there are 23 other horses in the pool that could take over the top spot of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager.

There is still plenty of time for hopeful contenders to take over the No. 1 spot of being a standout racer for this year’s Kentucky Derby. The 2011 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 7 at the Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

Earlier this month a press conference was held that revealed important details to the location of Wrestlemania 28. Ultimately Miami won the lottery, which means WrestleMania 28 will be held at Sun Life Stadium in Sunny Miami, Florida.

In the world of wrestling, WrestleMania is the equivalent of a Super Bowl. It is a week-long event, which never fails to entertain the masses. WrestleMania combines the best of the best male and female wrestlers, guest athletes, celebrities, and musical performers. Fans around the world enjoy WrestleMania, and Miami reaps the benefits.

Since WrestleMania is such an influential, and popular event within the WWE, it is no surprise that many cities are fighting for a chance to be the host. Miami has three influential people to thank for attracting the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) including Jose Pepe Diaz, Mike Sophia, and William D. Talbert III. The three deserve much of the credit due to their pivotal role in gaining the WWE’s attention.

WrestleMania XXVIII will be held at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida on April 1, 2012. This is wrestling’s biggest event of the year, and tickets will most certainly be in high demand.

Attention Gleeks in the Tri State area: Glee Live will be coming to the Meadowlands this summer for your viewing pleasure.

On Thursday, June 16 New Jersey’s own Lea Michele, along with the rest of the Glee cast, will perform their entertaining singing and dancing numbers during a stop on the “Glee Live! In Concert!” tour.

This will mark the show’s second concert tour, and the second tour for show’s stars, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron, and more. Series creator Ryan Murphy admitted that enthusiasm from the fans during last year’s concerts inspired him to continue on, and do it at least once more. Let’s just hope it’s not the last!

It’s not likely that Murphy will decide to stop touring any time soon. Glee’s popularity seems to be anything but diminishing. With 11 Golden Globe nominations, Glee has become the most-nominated series of the year. The show also has 19 Emmy Award nominations along with the four they have already claimed.

Reportedly, the live concerts will be comprised of favorite performances from the show’s first and second season. Numbers that will be performed include “Toxic,” “Empire State of Mind,” and of course, “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Glee Live will be performing in East Rutherford, New Jersey at the Izod Center, formerly known as Continental Airlines Arena, on Thursday, June 16, 2011.

There’s only 35 more days until the highly anticipated UFC 128 comes to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The fight card for this event features 12 match-ups, and every single fighter is out for the win.

Originally the headlining fight was supposed to feature UFC light heavyweight champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rau defending his title against former champion, Rashad Evans. Unfortunately, a knee injury forced Evans out of his chance to snag the title back.

UFC President, Dana White, turned to Jon Jones and asked if he was willing to take Evans’ place, and Jones quickly accepted the offer. Jones said, “I feel great. I’ve got it so great. I’m going for a world title, baby. Let’s do it.”

The rest of the line-up includes bouts between former WEC champion Eddie Wineland vs. Urijah Farber, Jim Miller vs. Kamal Shalorus, Edson Barboza vs. Anthony Njokuani, Kurt Pellegrino vs. Gleison Tibau, Chael Sonnen and Yoshihiro Akiyama, Joseph Benavidez and Ian Loveland, and more.
