STANLEY SHEINBAUM TURNS NINETY ONE!!!

Posted on June 12, 2011, in My Blog, with 1 Comment

Today I stopped by the 91st birthday party for Stanley Sheinbaum, a man beloved by all straight-thinking people who know him.

Now I am home studying a script I hope to do soon. Then I will do some research on my news book(s)–a “basket” of 3 short books about adolescent sexuality and gender: One for young teens, one for older teens and one for the parents (and grandparents) of teens.…

REFLECTIONS ABOUT TONYS FROM PARIS

Posted on June 10, 2009, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 34 Comments

I did not expect to win. From the very start, when people told me I would win, I appreciated their sentiments but never felt it was a Tony sort of role. Then, once I saw “Mary Stuart” and “God of Carnage” with the four other Tony nominees I felt I truly didn’t deserve to win. Those performances were towering. Truth be known, the entire 5 month experience was the prize for me and I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to return to Broadway and discover how much I like being on stage and performing night after night.…

This is the play the Obamas saw when they came to NY on a recent date. The first act was somewhat opaque but I got swept away by the 2nd. Sobbing, less from sorrow, more from revelation. I must read the script. There were passages of such inspiration and I want to quote them in my new book about aging..

LAST DAY HOME

Posted on June 3, 2009, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 37 Comments

Oh me oh my, there have been a lot of last days of late: last day on Broadway, last day in the Galapagos. Now it’s my last day in Atlanta, perhaps till the end of September when I am coming back for a fundraiser and the next board meeting. That may well be happening in the midst of a film.

 Tomorrow I go back to New York where I will catch up on plays I did not get a chance to see while I was on Broadway myself.…
