Taylor called and asked if I wanted to see a play or a movie. And I did! I also didn't want to go to Manhattan. So we decided to go to BAM to see the new Woody Allen, not because we had any faith in Woody Allen, but because we wanted to see Cate Blanchett in the role of a fallen socialite, inspired in part by Blanche DuBois. The joys were multiple. A date with Taylor. A movie in the BAM Harvey theater. The phenomenal performances by Cate Blanchett and also Sally Hawkins. But the other true joy was running into a little posse of theater friends—writers, directors, actors—and going out for drinks together afterwards. What a joy to spend the evening with my friends, my fellow culture makers, in our little corner of the culture making world, Brooklyn.
