how soccer explains the world excerpt racism fascism“If you have liberal politics and yuppie tastes, it isn’t easy to find a corner of the soccer firmament that feels like home. The continent has too many clubs that have freaky fascist pasts bleeding into a xenophobic present. . And this is only the first obstacle to finding a team. You · could never accept clubs with a cloud of virulent racism . trailing after them. (Remove from the list of potential favorites, then, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Glasgow, Rangers, Red Star Belgrade, and almost half the teams in Italy.) And for the sake of the underdog, you couldn’t possibly abide the multinational conglomerates, like Manchester United and Juventus, which buy championships every year. Barca elegantly fills this vacuum.”

–Franklin Foer, from “How Soccer Explains The World” (2004).

Jan. 27-28: songs for a new worldFriday, Saturday, Sunday: "Songs For a New World," at City Repertory Theatre: "I don't want to philosophize. I just want to tell a story." That line from Songs for a New World, which opens January 12 at City Repertory Theatre, describes it perfectly. In fact, it tells a whole collection of stories. It's not a book musical – there is no over-arching plot and no consistent characters throughout the evening - and yet it has a very strong sense of unity about it because every song in the show is essentially about the same thing: those moments in life when everything seems perfect and then suddenly disaster strikes, in the form of the loss of a job, an unexpected pregnancy, the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, imprisonment, even suicide. But it’s even more about the way we regroup and figure out how to survive in a new set of circumstances – a new world – even against seemingly overwhelming odds. The City Repertory Theater production runs for five more performances – Jan. 19, 20, 21, 27 & 28. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 pm. Sunday performances begin at 2 pm.
