She didn't say how he died but said Rodham was survived by his wife, Megan, and three children. Rodham was born in 1954 and raised in the Chicago suburbs with his siblings, Hillary and Hugh Rodham. He worked a variety of jobs, including stints as a prison guard, insurance salesman,...

Broadway tunes in for Tony Award nominations

The theater world will be up early and listening carefully on Tuesday morning: Bebe Neuwirth and Brandon Victor Dixon are announcing Tony Award nominations — and it promises to be a nail-biter. With no Broadway show dominating the conversation as in the past with musicals like "Hamilton" or "Dear Evan Hansen," the nominations this year are more of a toss-up. Will the exuberant "Be More Chill" lead the pack for the best new musical? Or will the adult "Hadestown"? Or will it be "Tootsie," the crowd-pleasing show based on the movie? The season also saw 14 new plays, including the...

'Wow, $91m!' – Jeff Koons on blow-up dogs, record prices and his row with Paris

‘To get great clarity in the balls, you really need to blow them a lot,” says Jeff Koons, with all the solemnity of a man explaining his tax returns. He gazes lovingly at his balls, which in this particular case are a row of stainless steel spheres suitably blown up to bear an astonishing resemblance to his most famous artistic muse: inflatable rubber toys. But given that Koons shot to notoriety with his 1991 series – in which he photographed himself and his then girlfriend Ilona Staller in pretty much every sexual position legal in the state of New York...

Opinion: Trump hasn’t proven that a billionaire can’t be an effective president — only that he isn’t

If nothing, Trump’s presidency—built on conspiracy, lies and a denial of facts—has only shown that the judgment of most voters in 2016 was good. Trump warned Americans that if they voted for Hillary Clinton, we’d wind up with a greedy, corrupt, ignorant president. He was right. But Trump’s countless faults and failures have nothing to...
