Past, Present and Future

  • Drama Desk Award winner Martha Plimpton shows off her lovely dress at the ceremony on Sunday (scroll down, 5th photo). Here is another photo of her with the winner of the other Actress in a Play category, Eve Best (scroll down, 7th photo). There are also a few of Ms Plimpton at the Drama Desk Cocktail Reception on May 3rd.

  • Some Utopians have exciting things lined up for the coming days and months. Martha Plimpton will be hosting and taking part in the Tiny Smooshy Sunday on Fire event on June 3rd. Click here for a list of other performers and for ticket and location information.

  • The promised further details for Ethan Hawke's plans have now been revealed. He is, once again, favoring directing over acting and will be working on Jonathan Marc Sherman's Things We Want for The New Group for the 2007-2008 season.

  • Across the pond, Charlotte Lucas is swimming the Channel! Lucy Petrie (formerly Lucy Scott) who played Miss Bennet's friend in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice is undertaking this challenge with her husband to raise money for premature babies. "Maybe I'll swim across in a bonnet" she joked!

  • For $15 on eBay meanwhile, you can get yourself a window card from the Broadway production of The Real Thing.

  • Lastly, for all you American Austenites out there, PBS is planning to devote some serious screen time to Jane's works. In January 2008, the channel will start broadcasting a four month marathon on Sunday nights, called The Complete Jane Austen. It will include the adaptations of all six novels (including the 1995 Pride and Prejudice) as well as Miss Austen Regrets, a new programme based on the author's diaries and letters. Capital, capital!
