Ryan Speedo Green: From juvenile delinquency to opera stardom – 60 Minutes – CBS...

As a 12-year-old in Virginia, Ryan Speedo Green was the author of an impressive rap sheet. He was so violent he was banished to a class for delinquents. And when he couldn't be contained there, he was sent to a juvenile lockup. Those who knew the boy with the unusual name, could see that the child was writing a tragedy. Now, as a man, tragedy has become the dominant theme in his life, but in a way that no one could have imagined. The high priest in the temple of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, is Ryan Speedo Green, starring in Rossini's "Semiramide." Green blessed the hall with a voice that reaches from bass to baritone. Ryan Speedo Green performs Metropolitan Opera At age 32, he is a member of the Vienna State Opera and performs on stages of the world in German, French, English and Italian.

Before the rules went into effect, studios commonly sold multiple films to theaters as a package. The U.S. Supreme Court in 1948 ruled against the practice, called "blo..

Theater Review: ‘The New One’

Humor is, as someone once said, a reminder that no matter how high the throne one sits on, one sits on one's bottom. And that would be a perfect way to describe Mike Birbiglia's solo show "The New One." Getting right down to the bottom of things - literally and figuratively - is Birbiglia's great talent. Solo shows are always a challenge, particularly on Broadway. Audiences used to seeing splashy extravaganzas expect a lot of bang for the big bucks they have to shell out. But a go..
