Tickets for A Chorus Line will go on sale in a week’s time: The date of A Chorus Line’s premiere is still up in the air, yet show rehearsals are fully under way, as confirmed at a colourful press conference on Thursday. The company, led by Malaga actor and theatre-owner Antonio Banderas, delighted the press, singing and dancing on stage in unison, with, most noticeably, beaming smiles. Despite everything, the Soho will “most certainly” open its doors some time between 10 and 20 November.

Contaminated Drugs Scandal: Malaga Based Drug Company Packaging Blunder Gives Children Werewolf Features!: This summer, the Spanish Pharmacovigilance System for Medicinal Products for Human Use were notified of 13 cases of hypertrichosis in children associated with the use of master formulae containing the active substance omeprazole from the Malaga-based company Farma-Química Sur S.L.
Hypertrichosis is an abnormal amount of hair growth over the body. The two distinct types of hypertrichosis are generalized hypertrichosis, which occurs over the entire body, and localised hypertrichosis, which is restricted to a certain area.
After an analysis was carried out by the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products, it was found that a particular batch had been mislabelled and the product actually contained minoxidil rather than omeprazole.
In light of this, warnings were issued and several batches were removed. The responsible company was also suspended from activities related to the manufacturing, importing and/or distribution of pharmaceutical active ingredients. Photo: Wikipedia
