I was in NYC recently and caught two shows, Blackbird and The Father. Both were good.
Blackbird stars Michelle Williams and Jeff Daniels (who was also in the original off-Broadway production of the two-person play). Daniels' character sexually abused Williams' character when she was 12. The play is basically her, grown up, confronting him about it. It's very highly charged and they are both great in it. The only thing that threw me off was the way that Williams' talks. It just sounded...funny. Like a subtle fake accent. Which I assumed was part of her character or trying too hard or something. But then I saw her on Colbert last week and she talked the same way. So, I guess that's just how she talks...whoops. Dawson's Creek forever. Also, in unsurprising news, Daniel's Play Bill bio does not mention Dumb and Dumber. Missed opportunity.
The other show I saw was The Father. Frank Langella kills this performance as an old man suffering from what is implied to be dementia. It's pretty heartbreaking. But the cool thing about the design of the play is that it's structured to put the audience in his shoes and does a great job of disorienting the audience. He will definitely be nominated for a Tony.
Rivers Cuomo is on Twitter. And most of the things that Rivers tweets are comments from the Weezer fan club Facebook group. He doesn't explain this, of course. So people just thing that he's making super random tweets. It also makes it hard to distinguish when he's making legitimate tweets.
Regardless, someone just illustrated several of his recent tweets, so you can see for yourself:
