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.
Tomorrow night it’ll be “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone,” then I am taking Samantha Mathis and Susan Kellerman (who were in “33 Variations” with me) to see “Ruined” and Saturday I’m having lunch with a woman who, like me, is very involved with the empowerment of adolescent girls, then I see the matinee of “reasons to be pretty,” then I’m taking my pal the smart, funny author and radio talk show host, Lisa Birnbach, to “The Norman Conquest: Round and Round the Garden,” followed by dinner with Jeff Daniels…it’ll feel like (not so) ol’ times.
The Tonys are Sunday–there’s an early rehearsal which I will have to go to cause I’m presenting the award to Best Featured Actor. I hope I still fit into the Reem Acra dress after all those scrumptious meals on the boat in the Galapagos. I will be tweeting the whole time so stay tuned. Monday after the Tonys I go to Paris to film a commercial for L’Oreal (in English and French–i have stayed fluent in that language). It’s a great company to work for. Imagine a company that has a 71 year old brand ambassador (that’s what we’re called). I am the “face for older women everywhere in the world but the U.S. Diane Keaton does it here. Hopefully the film with her will go in Sept. When it’s 100 percent certain I’ll tell you about it. I’d love to work with her.
Very soon the “store” will be set up on my blog so that those who want to can buy the mug shot totes, clutches, mugs etc that I’m selling to benefit the non-profit, G-CAPP that I founded 15 years ago. (See the side bar for their website). All for now. I will finish packing and then to bed. I’m wiped.
See you next time.
