Brass Buttons




Last night was the premiere of Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio, starring Liev Schreiber, who is absolutely dynamite. Here, watch the Times gush all over it:

"With "Talk Radio" Mr. Schreiber, who won a Tony two years ago for his performance in "Glengarry Glen Ross," confirms his status as the finest American theater actor of his generation, a man capable of presenting clouded, complicated minds with searing clarity. His performance here is unnervingly physical as Barry's malaise of the soul translates into all manner of bodily discomforts."

And now I will nerd out about the after party . Okay, so we get to Bobby Flay's restaurant, and there's this red carpet set up, but it's not for us, of course. We had to stand on the side, and wait for all the starlets to filter in, which took a while due to all the paparazzi and the fact that they had to maneuver through a revolving door.

Here's a rundown of the people in attendance: Naomi Watts, two of the Sex & the City chicks, Bernadette Peters, Alan Alda, Paul Haggis, Brian Dennehey, Anna Paquin, Mcauley Culkin's little brother, Chris Noth, and a whole lot of people from Law & Order and the Wire.

Inside, we somehow ended up sitting next to Anna Paquin and the Culkin kid who, quite frankly, seem like total dimwits. Finally, Naomi Watts -- looking smashing in a turquoise maternity number -- complimented my dress and I went home.

I'm so envious. I've seen Bogosian perform twice (forever waiting the resurrection of Wake Up and Smell the Coffee). Like I said: en-vi-ous.
