Aisle View: Last Supper of The Gabriels
Huffington Post - 4 months
Maryann Plunkett, Jay O. Sanders, Lynn Hawley and Meg Gibson in Women of a Certain Age Photo: Joan Marcus There's something rotten in the state of New York, town of Rhinebeck. Not rotten, exactly; rather, festering and smoldering. Ghosts of the past and ghosts of the soon-to-be future, mixed with resentment and malaise. Playwright/director Richard Nelson ends his masterly trilogy, The Gabriels: Election Year in the Life of One Family, with Women of a Certain Age. The Gabriel family, who have been precariously slipping from the comfortable life they have enjoyed for generations, encountered difficulties in Hungry (which took place and opened on March 4) and stood near the brink of financial catastrophe in What Did You Expect? (which took place and opened on September 10). The proceedings of Women of a Certain Age (which takes place and opened yesterday, on Election Day) conclude at about 7 P.M., which is to say after the characters voted--presumably for Hillary, with a ...

Lou Reed 1942-2013
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I interviewed Lou Reed in spring of 2003 in conjunction with the release of his latest album, The Raven. A hero of mine since childhood, our chat did not start out well. As I entered his office in Soho, he greeted me with a look combining contempt and outright revulsion: "Oh you little yuppie punk, please say something stupid so I can throw your ass outta my office," it seemed to say. Happily, Reed warmed up over the next two hours and we had a terrific chat about many things, recorded below. Several months later, I attended his sold-out concert at the Wiltern in L.A. Backstage, I shook his hand and told him how much I enjoyed the show.. He managed a smile, patted my shoulder, and said "Nice work." RIP Lou, and thanks for it all. Lou Reed has been one of rock music's most profound innovators since bursting onto the New York club scene in the mid-'60s with his now-legendary band, The Velvet Underground. Discovered and supported by Andy Warhol, the Velvets, which also featured Jo ...
