Aunt Dan, Lemon, and Two Girl Drinks
The birthday festivities begin! My dear friend Bart took me to see "Aunt Dan and Lemon", a revival of Wallace Shawn's (picture at right) thought-provoking OBIE-winning 1985 play. Very difficult to synopsize, themes include violence by nations and individuals, use and misuse of sex, hypocrisy among liberals and academics, Henry Kissinger, and cockroaches.
The action is seen through the hazy childhood memories of a stunted young recluse, played by Lili Taylor (also at right), who starred in "I Shot Andy Warhol" and was memorable on "Six Feet Under" as Nate's neurotic wife Lisa. Not everybody's cup of tea, but well done, and you won't be bored...
We ended up at the Marriott Atrium Lounge with its panoramic 8th floor view, where I downed two colorful and exotic "girl drinks" and ate a bowl of salty, spicy, and crunchy "party mix" that made you thirsty.
