That was blogged in my best race car announcer voice.
This week’s giveaway is a brand spankin’ new for-profit play, currently running 8-times-a-week Off-Broadway! (That’s where you’re supposed to gasp like when a race car gets too close to the wall.) Why the danger? Well, the 8-times-a-week commercial Off-Broadway play is more endangered than the African Green Broadbill. It’s rare to see ‘em, and we gotta take care of ‘em when we do, so that they’ll go off and make more little baby African Green Broadbills.
The play in question is running over at New World Stages, former home to Altar Boyz, and now home to Bullet for Adolph, written and directed by none other than Hunger Games actor, Woody Harrelson. It’s a comedy based on some real people that Woody knew intimately when he and his co-writer, Frankie Hyman, worked in construction back in 1983. You can read more about its history and what it’s about here.
How cool that Woody wrote a play . . . and that he’s taking the time between multi-million dollar gigs to have it produced and to direct it himself.
And Woody writing a play makes sense to me. You can just tell he has his own unique voice, right? His acting career gives off that vibe . . . from Cheers to White Men Can’t Jump to Natural Born Killers to Will and Grace to No Country for Old Men . . . the guy likes his variety.
More stars like Woody should write stuff, don’t you think? And when I say “more stars like Woody” I don’t just mean stars. I mean stars with unique voices. You know, like the Steve Martins (who have written plays) and . . . and . . . well, who else?
What star do you think has a great play in him or her?
