I felt so much better tonight than last night. Partly cause I got enough sleep. (Thanks again …

LAST SHOW BEFORE PREVIEWS

Posted on January 30, 2011, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 15 Comments

Our first run through with a small invited audience in Los Angeles. My Daughter-in-law took this of the audience waiting for the show to start.

They are a good generous audience. They’ve laughed a lot. It is intermission. Troy is away on a job so Simone’s here alone. She’s seen it 3 times already–2 years ago in New York. I …

GETTING EXCITED

Things are falling into place. I’m feeling like a horse, chomping at the bit, waiting for the play to begin–which it is about to: Our 2nd full out tech run-through start to finish.

There is something else that is making my heart race: Stephen Hawking, the great mathematician and physicist, is seeing the show on Tuesday. Hawking has had …

SECOND DAY OF TECH

Posted on January 26, 2011, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 15 Comments

Whew, tech rehearsing is slow and tiring. We stop and start and then do it all over again in little bits and pieces, especially the technically complicated transitions between scenes. Things have to be a little different than in NY staging-wise because the stage is different. The set and lighting is so spectacular…and complicated…it didn’t win a Tony Award for …

USA Weekend: Jane Fonda: 73 and sensational!

Posted on January 26, 2011, in Press, with 3 Comments

One look at Jane Fonda, 73, on our cover and across these pages raises the question: How on earth does she do it?
