I’m still laughing

It’s Only a Play, which is currently in previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway, has an embarrassment of stars in its cast.

And the book by Terrence McNally is hilarious — as topical as this week’s headlines and taking swings at every celebrity in Hollywood (including a few on stage).

The laughs just keep on coming.

But if you are lucky enough to experience this hysterical evening, the real star is the one face you don’t recognize in the photo — newcomer Micah Stock, who makes his Broadway debut amongst this group of A-listers. His deadpan delivery, spot-on timing and musical number (that is a perfect send-up of Broadway itself) brought down the house and the actors on stage.

It’s Only a Play, but it’s the best one I’ve seen in years.

Party on

What a difference a year makes!

Last July, Starz canceled the brilliant comedy series Party Down, a tragic event I chronicled here with both protests and pleas for other networks to save the show.

That didn’t happen.

Fast-forward to 2011.  Last Friday the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas hosted a Party Down Marathon attended by series creator Rob Thomas and many of the cast members, including Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), Megan Mullally and Lizzy Caplan.

During the Q&A portion of the evening, Thomas said that a Party Down movie is “pretty far down the deal-making process!”

My protests have been heard!  My pleas have been answered! 

Party Down is coming back! 

Sure, it’s not a TV show, but a movie works for me (and probably works better for many of the actors, who have gone on to other series).

But since this ‘process’ might take a little while — Rob Thomas is the same guy that keeps saying there will be a Veronica Mars movie, after all — here’s the Party Down online game to keep you entertained!

Yes, now you too can be a catering waiter and see first-hand how much talent it takes to ‘act like you care.
