But then again, some of the best seats are free – thanks to my little brother, who’s got some serious connections.
*Free with the purchase of a $2400 seat.

There are generous portions of shame and regret in The Humans, in which a seemingly tight-knit family celebrates Thanksgiving in their daughter’s Chinatown apartment.
I saw the play on Friday, and I won’t give away details, except to say that while every character is flawed, each is entirely likeable. I’d see a play based on any one of their lives. The dialogue is subtle and funny and realistic and the themes stay with you for a few days – my barometer of great work.
It’s going to take me a few entries to recap my long weekend in New York, and I’m glad. It’s my barometer of a great trip.

I’ll be enduring one of these groups tomorrow, as I head to New York for five days to see my mom. And the Yankees. And a play. And generous helpings of chicken parm.
I’ll blog from there, so check in and catch up what I’m up to in the city that never stops smelling like someone’s ass.

Eh – he’s one of the best actors ever, and now he wants to bring back “True Detective”, the TV show that made all shows better. (You can see its DNA in the already phenomenal “The Night Of”.) And let’s face it: if Matthew McConaughey comes back, every week we all get an acting lesson. Come on, HBO.

Not helping: I spent the other day at a mansion on the strand in Hermosa Beach. I’ve always said a house just isn’t a home without a heated, beachside lagoon.

My friends Jason and Sarah completely get it, and threw their first annual 4th of Ju-PIE party yesterday. Above is my contribution – an ice cream pie from Cold Stone – chocolate ice cream, fudge ganache and Reese’s peanut butter cups in an Oreo pie crust. No, I did not bake my own. I wasn’t about to break my streak of not using my new oven. (Two and a half years, and the instruction booklet is still taped to the top rack.)
