Mary Bridget Davies, A Night with Janis Joplin Davies has been wailing Janis Joplin tunes since appearing in a touring production of Love Janis in 2005, and her soulful take on the music legend’s hits finally paved the way to Broadway in 2014. Before hitting it big on Broadway, she loaded trucks for UPS and studied improv at Second City. When she’s not singing the blues in her living room with her two dogs, Davies loves spending quality time with her “boyfriend, Netflix and popcorn.” Lauren Worsham, A Gentleman’s Guide She plays a classy (and OK, a little weird) ingenue in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, but in real life, Worsham isn’t quite so dignified—she can stick her tongue in her nose and she has a tattoo of the Lone Star State on her rear end! Plus, this renaissance woman has a “backup” degree in Spanish literature and a rock band with her husband, composer Kyle Jarrow, called Sky-Pony. Sarah Greene, The Cripple of Inishmaan Direct from the West End by way of Cork, Ireland, Inishmaan’s Sarah Greene gets to taunt, tease and (spoiler alert!) eventually fall for co-star Daniel Radcliffe in the dark comedy by Martin McDonagh. Although she’s sworn off eggs after hurling so many onstage, Greene has officially been bitten by the Broadway bug—she’s hoping for an extended stay in New York City. Bonus secret talent: She can light cigarettes with her toes! Paul Chahidi Nick Cordero, Bullets Over Broadway After stints in Rock of Ages, The Toxic Avenger and a real-life rock band called Lovemethod, Bullets standout Nick Cordero never thought he’d be a tap-dancing gangster. In fact, he almost gave up his Broadway dreams for good to become a real estate agent. But now that he’s a Tony-nominated star, he has other plans. “I hope to have a continued relationship with real estate,” he told Broadway.com with a laugh. For a Broadway newcomer, just getting the chance to perform on the Great White Way is a huge thrill—but these five new stars not only nabbed the role of a lifetime this season, they also received Tony nominations for their stellar breakout performances. Broadway.com photo editor Caitlin McNaney hit the town with Bullets Over Broadway star Nick Cordero, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’s Lauren Worsham, The Cripple of Inishmaan standout Sarah Greene, Twelfth Night player Paul Chahidi and A Night with Janis Joplin headliner Mary Bridget Davies. Check out our cheat sheet on these fabulous first-time nominees! View Comments Star Files Paul Chahidi, Twelfth Night The 44-year-old Twelfth Night standout is getting lots of attention for his gender-bending turn as witty maid Maria, but he first performed in drag at the age of 13. “I never played a woman again until Maria,” he told Broadway.com. “I don’t want people to think that’s all I do!” The Oxford native is having a blast in New York with his wife Kate and son George (no, not the royal ones), and they love hanging out in the Central Park Zoo and at the Bronx Botanical Garden.

Baku: Eden Hazard scored twice and then admitted it was his parting gift as the Belgian’s brace helped Chelsea sweep away Arsenal to win 4-1 in the Europa League final in Baku. This match started at 11 pm local time on Wednesday in Azerbaijan, but it was Thursday by the time it came to life with a flood of second-half goals started by Olivier Giroud’s 49th-minute opener against his old club. Hazard then set up Pedro Rodriguez for Chelsea’s second before grabbing a double of his own — including a penalty — either side of Alex Iwobi’s consolation for Arsenal. The Belgian is widely expected to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid after seven years in England, and this was the perfect way for him to bow out. “I think it is a goodbye, but in football, you never know,” the 28-year-old told BT Sport. “My dream was to play in the Premier League and I have done that for one of the biggest clubs so maybe now it is the time for a new challenge.”RELATED It is his, and Chelsea’s, second Europa League this decade, while it is Maurizio Sarri’s first major trophy as a coach. “I am really very happy but the trophy is very important for the club,” Sarri said. “In the Europa League we played 15 matches, won 12 and drew three, so I think we deserved to win it.” Chelsea will be back in the Champions League next season, but there will be no return to Europe’s top table for Arsenal. Unai Emery’s side had to win here to qualify, yet they were not good enough on a bizarre night. Emery was hoping to win this competition for the fourth time. He will get another chance next season, but for now, Arsenal’s 25-year wait to bring back a European trophy to north London goes on. “We tried and we worked but Chelsea were better than us and congratulations to them,” Emery said. Chelsea will remember their evening with fondness, as will Sarri, who 24 hours earlier had stolen the headlines when he angrily stormed off the pitch here during a training session in front of the television cameras. “Sarri is a great guy, a great coach and he deserves this,” said David Luiz of his coach. Empty seats The few Chelsea supporters who came will not forget their night, but the fact there were reportedly only around 1,300 in Azerbaijan will be a source of regret for the club. UEFA’s decision to play the game here had been heavily criticised, with the difficulty and cost of coming to the shores of the Caspian Sea preventing many fans from travelling and meaning Arsenal’s Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan was controversially absent. Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev was in the crowd, but there were thousands of empty seats in a stadium which holds almost 70,000. That meant that, far away from the blood and thunder of a typical derby fixture, this had the feel of an end-of-season exhibition match on a foreign tour, for much of the first half anyway. The players seemed short of rhythm in a match played two and a half weeks after the Premier League season ended. It came to life though, with a moment of controversy when referee Gianluca Rocchi dismissed Arsenal appeals for a penalty as Alexandre Lacazette went down under goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s challenge. Giroud strikes again Granit Xhaka then saw his powerful strike from 25 yards graze the crossbar as the half-hour approached. Only after that did Chelsea stir, but Petr Cech — in his final match before retiring — blocked Emerson Palmieri’s shot and denied Giroud at the end of a fine move. However, as the clock ticked past midnight after a goalless first half, Chelsea went ahead when Giroud stole in front of Laurent Koscielny and stooped to head home Emerson’s cross. It was his 11th goal in this season’s competition, and there was to be no comeback from Arsenal, with Chelsea quickly putting this final beyond their opponents’ reach as Hazard took over. He set up Pedro for a clipped finish beyond Cech and into the far corner on the hour mark, and five minutes later Hazard calmly rolled in a penalty awarded after Ainsley Maitland-Niles barged into Giroud. Substitute Iwobi’s sublime volleyed reply followed, but Arsenal had left themselves with too much to do, and Giroud and Hazard combined brilliantly for the latter to get his second and Chelsea’s fourth in the 72nd minute.
