'The House of Blue Leaves' not as golden as 1986 Broadway smash

'The House of Blue Leaves' not as golden as 1986 Broadway smash
The second rialto production of John Guare's dark comedy "The House of Blue Leaves" opened Monday to respectful reviews. While most of the critics lauded the performers, they found the overall production lacking. Despite an off-Broadway run in 1971 for which it won the Best American Play prize from the New York Drama Critics Circle, the first Broadway staging of "Blue Leaves" in 1986 contended for Best Play; it lost to "I'm Not Rappaport" by Herb Gardner. Twenty-five years ago, the stellar cast included Swoosie Kurtz, who won the Featured Play Actress Tony for her portrayal of Bananas, the madcap wife of Artie. As that would-be songwriter, John Mahoney took home the Featured Play Actor prize. Also in the company was Ben Stiller as their wayward son and Stockard Channing, who was a Featured Play Actress nominee for her work as Artie's mistress Bunny. Stiller is headlining this new production taking

Six-time nominee Athol Fugard lauded with lifetime achievement Tony Award

Six-time nominee Athol Fugard lauded with lifetime achievement Tony Award
South African playwright Athol Fugard is to receive an honorary award at the Tony Awards on June 12. In making the announcement, the kudos commitee described Fugard as "a playwright whose art has always spoken out against racism and who continues to be an active voice for freedom and equality". The film adapation of his novel "Tsotsi" won the 2005 Academy Award for Best Foreign Lanuage Film. Fuguard contended for Best Play four times over the years. He lost his first two bids to British scribe Peter Shaffer -- first in 1975 when "Equuus" edged out "Sizwe Banzi Is Dead and the Island" and again in 1981 when "A Lesson from Aloes" was defeated by "Amadeus." In 1982, David Edgar's adaptation of "The Life and Times of Nicholas Nickelby" beat out "Master Harold … and the Boys" (1982) while "I'm Not Rappaport" by Herb Gardner prevailed over "Blood Knot" in 1986...

The Real Deal

Though he shares a name with his character on Showtime's hit "Weeds," actor Guillermo Diaz is nothing like a shady, menacing drug dealer. In real life, he's closer to his other current television character: the sweet and funny Angel on NBC's drama "Mercy." Diaz has a long résumé, respect from indie-film fans as well as comedy lovers (including this writer, who often quotes his character's lines from "Half Baked"), and a villain role in Kevin Smith's upcoming film "Cop Out" with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. For Diaz, it all began by picking up a copy of Back Stage. Growing up in Washington Heights, N.Y., Diaz didn't know he wanted to be an actor until he was 17. During a high school talent show, he lip-synched to a medley of Beastie Boys songs as rapper Mike D. The performing bug bit and never went away. He started buying Back Stage

Actor's Actor

Mercedes Ruehl is returning to Broadway after a seven-year absence, starring in Manhattan Theatre Club's revival of Richard Greenberg's The American Plan, a 1990 play set in a 1960s Catskills resort. Ruehl plays Eva Adler, a highly intelligent German woman who's obsessively involved with her emotionally unstable daughter (Lily Rabe). Eva isn't easy to play, and that's why Ruehl likes her. The character is a far cry from Stevie, the stunned, enraged, belittled wife in Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?, Ruehl's last show on Broadway. She's even further removed from the sweet, mentally limited Bella in Neil Simon's Lost in Yonkers, for which Ruehl won a Tony Award. In playing Eva, Ruehl finds herself influenced by Irene Worth, who portrayed Bella's mother -- a figure not unlike Eva. "There are certain inflections, and the way I hold my mouth," she says in describing the similarities.
