It's a Rave for Nora Burns and 'David's Friend'

Had the pleasure of seeing Nora Burns's love letter to her fallen partner in crime, "David's Friend," at The Theater at La Mama on Friday night. The show delivered on all fronts -- it's funny, it's nostalgic, it's touching, it's poignant and it's smart.  

And the outing became even more New York-y when I realized we were sitting directly next to legendary photographer Patrick McMullan, who gets a titillating nod in the show!; Robin Byrd, who is so crazy tried to interact with Nora, as if they were having a conversation at lunch!; and New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood, who I couldn't stop looking at to try to gauge his reaction to the proceedings.

To the last point, it looked as if Isherwood was not impressed with what he was seeing -- so I was eagerly awaiting his writeupto see if the expression matched the review.Turns out he must suffer from an acute case of Resting Bitch Face, because he gave it an unmitigated rave, which you can read HERE.

The show has a very limited run, so get your tickets while you can HERE.

Cock Block: With Matt, Damian and Nora

As an added treat, we met and hung out with David's little brother, Matt, at the after-party at the Cock. He's an incredibly sweet and smart guy, who has his own sexy blog HERE.

I use to love going to press screenings of movies and watching critics reactions immediately following vs their actual review.
Matt's blog is great! A nice mix of stuff. I've bookmarked it. I hope he appreciates it ;)
