This site features my pictures and videos of Vincent D'Onofrio in New York City beginning with my first meeting with him at Joe's Pub on July 22, 2010. Vincent is currently filming the final eight episodes for Season 10 of "Law and Order:Criminal Intent" in NYC. He also has several films due to be released this year and will be directing his next film "Johnny and Me" later this year. Feel free to leave comments and to follow along. Enjoy!
As I predicted, I found the Saturday matinee of "Nikolai and the Others" to be a much more enjoyable, and memorable, experience than the Wednesday matinee. Except for the difficult commute from Brooklyn, due to track work on the J line, which included 4 trains and a shuttle bus to make it to Lincoln Center in time for the 2 PM curtain. Whew! We also had a flash flood alert for later in the afternoon, as we had last Wednesday afternoon, and the rain sure did come pouring down after the Saturday matinee ended at 4:35 PM. Well, Kathryn made me a promise last Wednesday and I was sure that she'd keep it. So I waited in front of the stage door near the entrance to the Lincoln Center Theater, where the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater is located, safely indoors with my new smart phone and high hopes.
Although I had already planned to see "Nikolai and the Others" this Saturday, I decided to catch today's matinee at the Mitzi E. Newhouse theater. Despite the pouring rain outside and a couple of fellow attendees who annoyed the shit out of me during the performance, I still managed to enjoyed Kathryn's portrayal of Natasha Nabokov. The play has gotten mixed reviews and I did find it very talky and dull at times, except when Kathryn was onstage. John Glover, Blair Brown, Haviland Morris, Stephen Kunken and Anthony Cochrane were among the outstanding cast in a play with little dashes of humor and ballet but no major conflict to drive the story. The playwright Richard Nelson intended to create "a world where the creating of art...lives side by side...with all other essential and necessary functions of human life." Well,I hope my second viewing of the play this Saturday will be more pleasant and that I'll have a different perspective on Nelson's work. As long as nobody falls asleep and snores near me or distracts me by whispering during the play or complaining about the view from their seat. I moved to a different empty seat in my row to escape these morons to no avail. Oy!
