The HOT Half of the Pigeon Sisters

Playbill reports that Olivia d'Abo will play one of the Pigeon sisters in the Odd Couple revival with Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane. She is HOT. I had a crush on her back when she was playing Kevin's older sister Karen on "The Wonder Years," but gained a new appreciation for her -- both her acting and her HOTNESS -- in her recent turn as the evil foil to Detective Goren on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (a.k.a. "Law & Order: The Fourth or Fifth One... We Forget"). Rowr.

Oh, What a Night

Yesterday, Ang was kind enough to devote some blogspace to me on my Birthday. I appreciated her reminiscences on our prom night, and I'm glad she still looks back fondly on that night and that time, as I do. Here we were on that night:

The hair, the dress, and the girl: all beautiful, don't you agree?

While we're at it, here is another image I'm fond of:

Ang has a half-dukie look on in this one, which is I think why I appreciate it so much. That's Juan standing next to me. (Where the hell are you, Hooptie?!)

And here's the whole conclave:

All these pix were taken at Homars' house before we went out to eat at Pieces of Eight. I drove everyone in Dad's Grand Marquis. Felt like a million bucks.

Broadway News of the Week

  1. The Tony noms were announced earlier this week, and Monty Python's Spamalot got 14. According to Lisa, that number is high. Or perhaps the members of the American Theatre Wing are. I can't imagine why David Hyde Pierce would not have been included, as it seems everyone else was! Even if it does suck, though, I still regret having missed yet another smash Broadway comedy hit that premiered in Chicago. The last one I missed when it was there was The Producers, of course (and we made up for that by going to see Lane and Broderick's return to the show in NYC in 2004). Remember: That earned only 12 noms. Granted, it actually won all twelve -- if Spamalot does that, I'll eat Lisa's cat.

  2. It was also announced earlier this week that Brad Garrett will be joining Lane and Broderick in their second return to Broadway:
    It's all about you, Brad:
    Up next for Garrett is his first Broadway show, opening in October. He co-stars as Murray the cop in The Odd Couple, opposite Nathan Lane as Oscar and Matthew Broderick as Felix.

    "I am so excited about this," he says. "They're even talking of having me understudy Nathan. Hmmm. Now I just have to figure out how to poison him."
    Brad Garrett is incredibly underrated, and this only serves to deepen my desire to travel to NYC in the fall to catch this show (and a few others).
