GILLIAN ANDERSON & BEN FOSTER in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

We’ve got our tickets. Let us know when you are in town and we can meet up. Tickets maybe sold out or close to it so GO NOW AND BUY YOURS!!!

FROM WEBSITE Arguably, St. Ann’s Warehouse is the only NY theater capable of staging Benedict Andrews’ maverick production of A Streetcar Named Desire, featuring Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster, Corey Johnson and Vanessa Kirby. With its transparent, revolving set, all conversations are overheard, there’s nowhere to hide and the ensuing tragedy purposefully spins toward its inevitable last line. The New York Times called the production “a wounding portrait of communal loss.” This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and London’s Young Vic.

“Ms. Anderson is at her very best in Benedict Andrews’ ferocious new production of Tennessee Williams’ immortal play…

[Ben Foster is] the first Stanley I have come across to erase memories of the part’s stage and screen originator, Marlon Brando…less about the character’s pectorals and more about his battered pride”

-THE NEW YORK TIMES
 
“Benedict Andrews’ version steams off the stage with pain, excitement and clamour”
-THE OBSERVER
 
“Foster as Stanley matches Miss Anderson blow for blow in their big showdowns…Kirby is touchingly vulnerable as Stella”
-SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
 
“Gillian Anderson is simply unmissable, Benedict Andrews’ direction is admirably thoughtful and bold… Vanessa Kirby eloquent, Ben Foster explosive, and there’s a lovely measured Corey Johnson”
-EVENING STANDARD

GILLIAN ANDERSON LEADS THIS NEW YORK TRANSFER

This modern-day staging of Tennessee Williams feverish classic arrives at St Ann’s after dazzling West End audiences in 2014. Heading the cast as the ill-fated Blanche DuBois is Golden Globe and Emmy winner Gillian Anderson, currently starring on the small screen in The Fall and Hannibal, but perhaps still best known for her iconic portrayal of Agent Scully in Fox’s The X-Files.

Directed by Benedict Andrews, this simmering cauldron of sexual frustration and resentment plays out on a revolving set, which allows the audience a window into every cramped inch of the play’s sweltering New Orleans apartment setting. It was first staged at London’s Young Vic in 2014, and became the fastest selling show in the venue’s history. The production earned universal acclaim, with the UK’s leading theatre critic, Charles Spencer of The Telegraph, describing Anderson’s turn as “the performance of her career”.

The main cast transfer over for this New York production. Joining Anderson are stage star Ben Foster (Lone Survivor) as the surly Stanley, and Vanessa Kirby (Jupiter Ascending) as Stella.

WHAT IS STREETCAR ABOUT?

When faded Southern belle Blanche finds her decadent life crumbling around her, she falls on the mercy of her timid sister Stella for some relief. However, she didn’t factor in Stella’s domineering husband Stanley, who is determined to control his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

Blanche is intrigued with the dynamics of their relationship, and attempts to attract new men by holding court in the Kowalski’s apartment, to Stanley’s anger. Blanche and Stanley butt heads constantly, and a huge confrontation between the two leads to a devastating fate for Blanche as she finally experiences a psychotic breakdown.

FROM TICKETFLY: The Los Angeles Times described the voice of their native son, blues/rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Keaton Simons, as having a “lived-in quality that will echo in our minds and hearts for years to come.” Anyone who’s seen Keaton perform live knows why the crowd erupts when he picks up a guitar from his arsenal on stage (usually consisting of a customized DeTemple Stellacasta, fretless guitar, baritone and acoustic). Premier Guitar magazine has welcomed Keaton as a guest guitar teacher on their website and says, “Simons can play.” In addition, Keaton has played a role in the hip hop world as a writer, musical director, singer, bassist and guitarist with notable acts like Snoop Dogg, Gnarls Barkley, Tre Hardson of The Pharcyde and underground hip hop legend Medusa. He’s also performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Last Call with Carson Daly and most recently, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Keaton’s music is regularly placed in feature films and television shows, including Sons of Anarchy, Private Practice, NCIS and Numb3rs.

X-FILES PREMIERE PARTY: Our Recap

The stars of the X-Files were all on hand at the California Science Center this past Tuesday, January 12, 2016. They entered one by one to work the Red Carpet sponsored by Ford.

20160112_184928

We are more of a FAN SITE than Press so our goal is always David Duchovny. David was surprised to see us, remarking our dedication to showing up all over the country.

David said our dedication is about to be challenged in May with soon to be released news about a HELL OR HIGH WATER TOUR that would require us to dust off our passports. I tweeted a hint of this out Tuesday from the event and my notifications blew up.

Laurice asked about the HOLY COW animated musical project. David said there are forces at work that are trying to make it happen. While it didn’t sound like it was his primary focus at this time, he mentioned there was still interest. David was in high demand so I quickly moved on to the buffet. It’s my thing.

Perhaps 30-minutes later, while finishing a glass of red wine, I was surprised by a farewell double pat on the shoulder. I turned and he was already almost out of sight… Sorry, let me move on before this turns into a grocery store romance novella. #WALTOVNY is real LOL.

Laurice had a brief meeting with William B. Davis. After 35 years of watching celeb interviews I should realize by now that the villains are always played by the nicest actors. Mr. Davis was incredibly gracious, especially after sharing we just finished the final season of Continuum, a series on Syfy. If you have not watched it is fun. William B. Davis plays the future self of one of the main characters and a driving force of the overall plot line

It was a real pleasure meeting Annet Mahendru. Annet was passing by with her friend when I mentioned I loved her on the Americans. She stopped to chat with us. Our friends at X-Files News joined the conversation. If you are unfamiliar with this actress, go watch FX’s THE AMERICANS. One of my favorite shows on TV in past 10 years, Annet plays a Russian in the USSR DC Embassay and after being recruited by the FBI, also becomes a double agent for the KGB. Alas that was the cold war of the 1980s. In “My Struggle”, Annet brilliantly plays Sveta. Enough for now, as I want this post to be spoiler free, but I expect to see this young actress take Hollywood by storm.

I met Robbie Amell in passing, asking, “When will we finally see you in the X-files?” Robbie held out all 4 fingers and a thumb. “FIVE”.

“Cool. No more Tomorrow People?” What I really wanted to ask was “Will we see you as Firestorm again?” But on my tougue was FIRESTAR and I knew that was the heroin from 1980s cartoons Spiderman and his Amazing Friends. I thought he did a great job on The Flash the past two years. We were also sad to see The Tomorrow People cancelled.

We both tried to talk to Annabeth Gish. But Annabeth moves fast and is in demanad. hard to catch. Annebeth did catch Laurice though…

Ashton Irwin was in the house when Laurice noticed the popular 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER drummer hanging out. A major rising star in the music world, 20-year old Ashton was ecstatic to have someone recognize him in the mostly older crowd.

I already posted our meeting with Chris Carter CLICK HERE

My geekiest moment came when we met Joel McHale. We were on our way out. Clearly Joel was trying to get the eff out. But we did want to tell him we were going to try and see him in New York at Carolines next month. He said he was trying to get out of there and had not yet stolen a pillow.

“OK, write your email down for me.” Say Joel. OH CRAP.

The next 5 minutes was all about looking for a pen or perhaps a lone business card hiding in my wallet.

The next 10 minutes was waiting for an opportune moment to give Joel the NJ Transit Ticket I wrote my name and email. The staff was cleaning up. Security was glaring (GET THE EFF OUT)…

Joel was talking to Chris Carter and Vince Gilligan. I saw one more pillow. I grabbed it. A security guard was walking towards me with intent. Not sure if he was more worried about getting me out or taking the pillow back.

I butted in subtly (as subtle goes for me). “Sorry they’re about to kick me out”.

“I was hoping for a pillow with the logo” That’s what I thought but did not want the star to go home empty handed.

I was saving the best for last. While periscoping the Red Carpet activities, emmy award winning editor (wins for “Tempus Fugit“, “Kill Switch“, “S.R. 819”  ALSO American Cinema Editors award for Best Edited One-Hour Series “Unruhe“) Heather MacDougall saddled up next to me. As Heather told me she was the emmy award winning editor, I slowly turned cell phone camera and periscope feed onto my new best friend. We then shared thre Red Carpet experience as we noticed stars arriving. There’s Mitch, and WIlliam, and Annet… It was like X-Files Romper Room Magic Mirror time. I recognized Robbie Amell right away. Our Twitter fans went nuts. “SO COOL” ” OMG”

So that was kind of like my get. Later at the after party Heather approached me “Have you seen CSM?”

I responded “William was sitting over there (all the celebs had their very own plush L-shaped lounge couch VIP section to receive press) but he just got up ans was at the buffet (just feet behind us – I always notice when stars go to the buffet… it’s my thing).

Seconds later I noticed out of the corner of my eye yelling  “HEATHER” we’re on a first name basis now “There he is!” Heather smiled acknowledgement.

So as I often say “SO THAT HAPPENED!”

To be in the right place at the right time you have to be out of the house and in a lot of places. Add to that my own bumbling idiot charm I have to say I have had some amazing times

X-FILES SEASON ONE
Episode 22 Born Again
Originally Aired April 29, 1994
Written by Alex Gansa, Howard Gordon
Directed by Jerrold Freedman

WIKI – In Buffalo, New York, police detective Sharon Lazard finds a little girl, Michelle Bishop, alone in an alley. Lazard takes the seemingly lost girl into her precinct, and leaves her alone to be interviewed by another detective, Rudolph Barbala. However, moments later, Barbala is jettisoned through a window, falling to his death.

Lazard turns to Fox Mulder and Dana Scully for help. She tells them of Michelle’s claims that a man had attacked Barbala, even though she was the only person in the room when the detective was killed. The agents have Michelle describe the alleged attacker for a computerized facial composite; the computer seemingly glitches, displaying a face that Michelle identifies as the killer. The composite matches that of a Detective Charlie Morris — who died nine years previously in an apparent gangland hit. The agents speak to Michelle’s psychiatrist, Dr. Braun, who tells them that she habitually mutilated dolls in a uniform manner during their sessions together, removing the same eye and arm each time; Mulder realizes that these mutilations match the circumstances of Morris’ death.

The agents interview Barbala’s partner, Tony Fiore, who attributes Morris’ death to a triad gang they had been investigating together. Later that day, Fiore meets with a Leon Felder, and the two discuss claiming a large sum of money from a safety deposit box, but agree that they haven’t waited the ten years they had intended to, ominously discussing that they are the last two claimants left. That night, Felder gets off a bus, but his scarf catches in the door as it drives off. The driver tries to brake, but the bus inexplicably continues to accelerate, strangling Felder as Michelle watches from inside the bus.

Investigating further, Mulder and Scully learn that Fiore, Barbala, Felder and Morris had all worked closely together in the past. They also find that Fiore’s wife Anita keeps a collection of origami animals made by her first husband—Charlie Morris. Anita tells the agents that Fiore hasn’t returned home from the previous night; meanwhile, the agents find that pages are missing from the file on Morris’ murder, and Fiore was the last one to have checked the file out.

Michelle undergoes a session of regression hypnosis, where she claims to be twenty-four years old. She suddenly starts screaming in panic about someone trying to kill her, and the session is ended. Mulder reviews the video of the session, and is convinced that the girl is the reincarnation of Morris, having been conceived right around the time the detective was murdered. The tape contains a brief section of static noise just before Michelle begins screaming, which Mulder has an expert clean up. The noise is found to contain a grainy image of what appears to be a fish tank ornament of a man in an atmospheric diving suit. Meanwhile, Scully has tracked down Morris’ autopsy findings, which show the presence of salt water in his respiratory tract, indicating he died of drowning. The agents realise from these findings that Morris was drowned in the exotic fish tank in Fiore’s house.

Rushing to Fiore’s house, Mulder and Scully find Michelle using telekinetic powers to try to kill Fiore. They prevent her from doing so, and Fiore confesses that he, Felder and Barbala had stolen a large sum of money, intending to keep it safe for ten years before claiming it. Morris learned of their plan and threatened to report them for it, and was killed to silence him. However, Fiore maintains that he never wanted to see Morris dead. Michelle uses her powers to destroy the fish-tank, but spares Fiore after hearing pleas from Anita. Later, Fiore pleads guilty to charges of murder and grand larceny, whilst Michelle seemingly recovers and goes on to become a normal little girl.

Episode 23 Roland
Originally Aired May 6, 1994
Written by Chris Ruppenthal
Directed by David Nutter

WIKI –

At a research lab in Colson, Washington, intellectually disabled janitor Roland Fuller is scolded by scientist Dr. Keats for forgetting how to use the facility’s keycard locks. Keats walks in on his colleagues, Frank Nollette and Ronald Surnow, as they argue over a prototype jet engine they are developing. Nollette wants to push testing of the engine to break mach 15, but Surnow is unwilling to risk damaging the prototype. After Keats and Nollette angrily leave, Surnow enters the facility’s wind tunnel to make adjustments. However, Roland activates the tunnel’s turbines, sending Surnow flying to his death.

Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are brought in to investigate Surnow’s death. Scully notes that another member of the research team, Arthur Grable, had mysteriously died several months earlier, and believes it to be a case of industrial espionage. Mulder examines the handwriting on the team’s whiteboard and concludes that it has been written by at least four different people, leading him to suspect that a fourth individual was present. Keats and Nollette both inform the agents that Roland Fuller was the only one left in the facility at the time of Surnow’s death, but do not believe him to be capable of murder.

Nevertheless, Mulder and Scully visit the care home where Roland lives. When they gently ask him about the night of the murder, he tells them he had not seen anything out of the ordinary. He also inadvertently reveals his mathematical prowess by rapidly counting the star designs visible on Scully’s blouse; however, his handwriting does not match the fourth sample taken from the whiteboard. The discussion ends when Roland experiences a violent vision and has what seems to be a fit. Later that night, Roland has another vision in which he sees someone killing Keats. He appears at the lab and murders Keats by submerging his head in a tank of liquid nitrogen. Keats’ frozen body is left to shatter as Roland begins typing at one of the computers.

The next day, the agents notice that the computer had been used for five hours after Keats’ death. Attempting to open the file that was being worked on, Mulder realizes that the number Roland had written on an art project the previous day is the computer’s password. The file turns out to be the work of Arthur Grable, a scientist who had supposedly died several months earlier, and has been worked on constantly since his death.

Looking into Grable’s death, the agents find that it was he who had hired Roland. They begin to think that Grable faked his death and is killing his former colleagues, using Roland as a patsy. Grable’s body was never brought to the morgue, nor was a funeral ever held. However, Nollette brings the agents to a neuropreservation facility where Grable’s remains are being stored. When a photo of Grable is found, the agents discover that he is Roland’s identical twin brother. Speaking to Roland again, Mulder becomes convinced that the janitor is being periodically controlled by Grable.

Meanwhile, Nollette sneaks into the cryogenic facility and tampers with Grable’s storage unit, thawing his remains. Roland returns to the lab and is in the process of pushing the prototype engine to mach 15 when Nollette enters. Nollette admits to stealing Grable’s work and prepares to shoot Roland, but is distracted by some equations. Roland strikes him with a computer keyboard and drags him into the wind tunnel. The agents arrive in time to convince Roland not to kill Nollette. At the same time, the rising temperatures in the storage unit kill Grable. Roland is removed from the care home, to be taken to a psychiatric institute for testing. However, as he leaves he stops to comb his hair in a style reminiscent of his brother, raising the question of whether he is actually free of Grable’s control.

Episode 24 Erlenmeyer Flask
Originally Aired May 13, 1994
Written by Chris Carter
Directed by R W Goodwin

WIKI –

In Ardis, Maryland, a high-speed police chase unfolds at a waterfront. The driver of the car, Dr. William Secare, is cornered by officers but fights them off with surprising ease. Secare is shot as he runs up a gangplank and leaps off a ship into the water. The police fail to locate him but discover that his blood is green.

Soon afterwards, Deep Throat (Jerry Hardin) approaches Fox Mulderwith Secare’s case, saying he is of major importance to revealing the truth. When investigating the case, Mulder andDana Scully visit Dr. Terrance Berube (Ken Kramer), a scientist working in Gaithersburg, Maryland whose car was being driven by Secare. That night, Deep Throat meets a second time with Mulder and insists he continue, despite Mulder’s uncertainty on what he should be looking for. That night, Berube is confronted by the “Crew Cut Man” (Lindsey Ginter), who kills him and makes the death look like a suicide.

While investigating the crime scene, Mulder finds an erlenmeyer flask labeled “Purity Control.” Scully takes the flask toGeorgetown University, where Dr. Anne Carpenter (Anne De Salvo) helps her analyze its contents. Meanwhile, Mulder heads to Berube’s home and finds keys for a storage facility. Secare calls Berube’s home office and Mulder answers, pretending to be Berube. Secare tells who he believes to be Berube that he’s been underwater for three days, and is hurt. Meanwhile, the Crew Cut Man eavesdrops on the conversation. Secare collapses due to blood loss before he can tell Mulder where he is. While he is driven away in an ambulance, a poisonous gas emits from Secare’s body when the paramedics perform a needle decompression. Secare recovers and flees from the ambulance.

Mulder arrives at the storage facility and finds five men suspended in tanks, as well as a sixth empty tank. Mulder is pursued when he leaves the facility but escapes. Carpenter reveals that the “Purity Control” flask contains a sample of bacteria that doesn’t exist anywhere in nature and can only be described as extraterrestrial. Upon revisiting the storage facility the next day with Scully, Mulder discovers the room to be completely empty. Deep Throat arrives, revealing that Berube was experimenting on humans with extraterrestrial viruses. Six terminally ill volunteers were experimented on, and all had begun recovering. When it was ordered that they be destroyed, Berube helped Secare escape.

Scully learns that Carpenter and her entire family have been killed in an automobile accident. Mulder returns to Berube’s home and finds Secare, who is killed by the Crew Cut Man. Mulder passes out from exposure to the gas escaping from Secare’s wound and is captured. Deep Throat meets Scully outside of Mulder’s apartment and says that he may be able to make a deal with Mulder’s captors. He gives Scully the credentials necessary to enter the High Containment Facility at Fort Marlene, where Scully finds an alien fetus contained within liquid nitrogen. At an exchange on a freeway overpass, Deep Throat presents the fetus to the Crew Cut Man, who shoots him seconds later. Mulder is thrown out of the Crew Cut Man’s van as he drives off. Scully tends to Deep Throat, whose last wordsbefore dying are, “Trust no one”.

Several weeks later, a despondent Mulder calls Scully to inform her that the X-Files have been shut down. Meanwhile, in a scene mirroring the conclusion to the pilot, the Smoking Man stores the alien fetus in the massive evidence room within the Pentagon.
