Hollywood D'os and D'on'ts With Vincent D'onofrio

I haven't watched this in a while. Just think, next time I go to the salon for my mani-pedi, Vincent could be sitting in the chair next to me. Oh, why not? I can't talk to him in Starbucks! LOL

Stylish and Classy Encore-Vincent D'Onofrio 3-24-2014

What was Vincent muttering in French? Why is he so well liked while others are not? Dude's got style and class galore! Btw, check out that butt shot at the end. ;)

Vincent D'Onofrio's Blanche Dubois at Joe's Pub 3-24-2014

Yes, it's tragic, isn't it? Just imagine Vincent as Blanche Dubois onstage in New York. Maybe someday he'll get the chance to fulfill his dream. :)

Vincent signs my stuff 3-24-2014

Vincent signed several DVDs that I presented in the lobby of the Public Theater after his show with Slim Bone Head Volt. The two items I then gave to Ruby for the next NLEOMF online auction are 1. Blu-ray of Full Metal Jacket signed by Vincent D'Onofrio and Arliss Howard and 2. VHS copy of Strange Days signed by Vincent D'Onofrio. The other items I will auction later on for our annual Central Park Challenge fundraiser in June for autism awareness. Vincent commented when I told him that Arliss Howard had previously signed the FMJ Blu-ray "He's doing a play at the Cherry Lane." and I told him I had just seen "Ode to Joy" recently. Vincent asked me "Is it good?" I told him an emphatic "Yes!" I hope he sees the play soon before it closes on April 19, 2014. Kate, Arliss and Roxanna are all terrific in Craig Lucas' play about a painter struggling with addiction while recalling her past relationships with the two loves of her life.

Vincent D'Onofrio & Dana Lyn - Public Theater

Vincent D'Onofrio & Dana Lyn - Public Theater

I can't wait until next Monday night for Vincent's encore show with Dana Lyn and Slim Bone head Volt. Ruby and Joann are joining me at Joe's Pub in Soho and we're gonna have all kinds of fun with President D'Onofrio. Ruby is bringing the signed LOCI Emmy Ad I won in the charity auction this week. I'll bring a few more items I'll ask Vincent to sign, if I have the chance. On January 31 he was so swarmed by fans after the show that we barely got to get a photo with him in the lobby of the Public Theater. Vincent was very upbeat after the 9:30 PM show that night, which was a great success, and he posed with everyone who asked. Eric Bogosian and Ethan Hawke were there also, as were Sam Bisbee and Erika Hampson. Vincent's wife and daughter were also in the audience. Victoria and I hung out with Ellen and Carol and sat in front of the stage, where we had the best view of Vincent during the show. For the next show I'll get more video and pics so you all can enjoy his genius. Yay!

Interesting side note-I spoke to Kathryn Erbe after the March 9 matinee of her play "Ode to Joy" at the Cherry Lane Theater and I told her about Vincent's recent show at Joe's Pub. Seems she was not aware of Vincent's recent foray into live monologuing or beat poetry a la Eric Bogosian. To date, Vincent has not attended any of Kathryn's plays, and she commented that this is probably due to his busy schedule. Still, I hope they still get to hang out every now and again. VDO and KE make such a great team, don't they?
