Giving My Regards
50 hours after I arrived in New York City I finally made it to a Broadway show -- the revival of "Butley" starring Nathan Lane. It's about a sadsack British college professor who can't sort out his emotional feeling towards his students from his personal life.
Lane is excellent at playing melancholy, but you know the whole audience is waiting for the ticking time bomb to explode. No one "goes off" on stage like N.L.
Moviewise, I went to see "Venus" this afternoon for which Peter O'Toole is nominated for a Golden Globe. It's about an aging actor who falls in love with the much-younger nurse of a fellow thespian.
Apparently Tuesday is "Letch" day.
