Went to a rare Friday afternoon matinee of David Hare's new play "The Vertical Hour" starring Julianne Moore and Bill Nighy.
I guess it's about differing views on the Iraq War from the British and American points of view -- but I'm not sure.
Mostly I focused on how uncomfortable Julianne Moore seemed on stage. Especially compared to Bill Nighy, who completely commanded the stage whenever he was on it. The show soared when he was out there and swooped when he wasn't.
During intermission I bumped into Kevin Earley (www.kevinearley.com) who I've seen perform in a few different shows in Los Angeles. We had a nice chat and I'm looking forward to seeing him work the West Coast boards in 2007.
