THIS is the moment a woman shouts at two roofers for making noise on a Sunday morning - before making off with their ladder. Footage posted on Facebook shows the neighbour standing on a driveway, gesturing dramatically and branding the workmen 'disgusting' for starting work at 8am. After lots of finger-wagging, hands on hips and hint of pantomime 'baddie' in her voice, she upped the drama further by stealing their ladder - leaving the workmen stranded on the roof. The lads are left stranded on the roof until one of them gets down and goes after the woman, returning with the steps. The footage has been shared over 65,000 times and racked up 41,000 comments - but some people have questioned whether it's real. Many people commenting on Facebook said it looked "scripted", with one person saying that they had "seen better acting on a life insurance advert". One person said: "Was more convinced by the acting in my secondary school drama class. P*** poor that." However, some people believed … [Read more...] about Moment furious neighbour steals roofers’ ladder after they start work ‘too early’ on Sunday – but is it all it seems?

WELCOMING me into his penthouse flat overlooking London's Chelsea Harbour, Sir Michael Caine is clearly relishing life in his 80s. Shelves are lined with framed pictures of the award-winning actor and his family – the smiling faces of his three grandchildren (on whom he dotes and who call him 'Pa'), snaps of him holding one of his two Oscars, with his wife Shakira, a petite and beautiful tour de force who is bustling around in the background today. At 85, he's still making movies, despite breaking his ankle earlier this year – he slipped on some ice during the 'beast from the east', while pottering in the garden at his country home in Surrey. It's taken a while to heal but he's now walking without a stick again, he enthusiastically reveals. He's also just written his third book, Blowing The Bloody Doors Off, in which he highlights where he's come from (working-class, never expected to do much) to where he's arrived (stardom, wealth, all-round success) and how he got there … [Read more...] about Michael Caine at 85: I’ll watch TV for four days and probably get a little bit p***ed
John Monaghan Special to the Detroit Free Press Published 4:00 AM EDT Oct 4, 2018 It's about five months until “Hamilton” (March 12-April 21), Lin Manuel-Miranda's founding father phenom, arrives at the Fisher Theatre in March. The biggest thing to land on a Detroit theater stage since the “Phantom of the Opera” crystal chandelier has already filled many of its seats with season ticket holders. The feeding frenzy for individual tickets won't begin until they are released after the first of 2019. The good news for Motor City theater fans is the number of well-mounted plays scheduled for this fall and winter. These include the touring shows that are the bread and butter of the Broadway in Detroit series at the Fisher Theatre and Detroit Opera House, not to mention shorter runs of bus-and-truck musicals at the Fox Theatre, which also is presenting the U.S. premiere of Meat Loaf-inspired "Bat Out of Hell — The Musical" (Nov. 6-17). Of … [Read more...] about Top picks for metro Detroit’s fall theater season
Deb pulled open the heavy door of the high school auditorium and stepped inside, looking around as it clicked shut behind her. She tried to look relaxed, smiling at someone she knew, but every step stirred uncertainty in her.She had come here to audition for a play, knowing she was likely well out of her league. The students here tonight were an elite, accomplished group. Some of them had been performing together for years. In the high school lobby, just outside the door, a glass display case held the gleaming trophies they had won. Related Links Photos: A drama unfolds in Peabody They mingled around her now with easy camaraderie, nervous energy fueling bouts of laughter. Some were Deb’s friends, but this was their home turf.
