outside, the wind was roaring and Tropical Storm Isaac was upon us. inside, dressed in the comfort of my home, i was responding to an email from the Roundabout Theatre Company. i purchased preview tickets to Jake Gyllenhaal’s american stage debut, not knowing much else about the play, if there is i haven’t found it yet. a week later, in new york, at the Laura Pels Theater, i was dressed quite differently. in Valentino Noir Rockstud sandals, and seated a few seats away from Jake Gyllenhaal’s sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and her husband Peter Sarsgaard, i was to find surprising parallels. george (bryan f. o’byrne), one of the 4 characters in the play, opened with a commentary denouncing the disastruos global climate changes of this new millenium. as we know the climate is not in human hands, and outside the theatre, in other parts of the country, many were still feeling the wrath of Hurricane Isaac. the title of the play, if there is i haven’t found it yet, is provoking. indeed, each of the 4 character know that there is, and clearly it is not about the weather! as the play progresses, george (bryan f. o’byrne) remarks, if we are not willing to change are we worth saving? to find the is, we must change? this is Jake Gyllenhaal’s american theatre debut, billed as insightful and provocative, and the vehicle that he expects will change how he is perceived as an actor. the play opens on the 20th of september, and it is expected to be the hottest ticket of the season. found it yet? yes, i hope. and specially you, Jake Gyllenhaal, this play is your theatre debut, and all the characters are dealing with rejection! outside the theatre, rejection is not what you want. a bit much to digest on an empty stomach. outside, in the city, no chance of rain, and thebestdressup is on her way to the luvFAB Sushi Seki. i know there is…well, seki is waiting for me and his sushi rocks. i have found it; yet…theatre is for thebestdressup now!
if there is theatre, thebestdressup will find it.
if there is…seki is it! sushi seki is for thebestdressup now!
