GOSSIP FROM E! ONLINE

1/31/02

Jerry was recently mentioned in Ted Casablanca's column "The Awful Truth" at E! Online. (Thanks to Treksector for the news) Here's what Ted had to say:

January 31, 2002

Jerry O'Connell, sharing cocktails with a familial-type chica at the trendy West Hollywood spot Jones. J.C. was killing time with his "date" while waiting for another twosome, which turned out to be former Law & Order sexpot Jill Hennessy. Dressed to kill in a rocker-chick combo of leathuh pants and tight tank, the lawyer turned medical examiner (on Crossing Jordan, natch) arrived with a dude on her (firm) arm. The chummy foursome grabbed a table and ordered some pizza.

JERRY DOES THEATER - "WORLDLY ACTS"

1/27/02

Reuters reports that Jerry O'Connell will be starring in a production of "The Homecoming" directed by Adam Davidson. "Homecoming" is one of five short skits that makes up the stage production "Worldly Acts" sponsored by Francis Ford Coppola. Here is the information from Yahoo! News:

Jan 23 11:39 PM ET

It's a big Friday for Adam Davidson, son of Judy and Gordon Davidson. The young Davidson, Oscar winner for dramatic short subject ``The Lunch Date'' in 1991, directs one of the one-acts, ``The Homecoming,'' starring Jennifer Grant (daughter of Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon) and Jerry O'Connell, at the Tiffany.

Thanks to Raydelle for passing this news along.

"The Homecoming," written by Joe Borini, opened Jan. 24, 2002 and closes March 3rd. The production plays Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. Ticket prices for this 120-minute show are $25 each. The Tiffany Theater is located at 8532 Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood, California. For ticket info at: 310-289-2999.

A review of the play can be read at : http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20020127/en/review-stageworldly_1.html. Here is an excerpt from the review by Steven Oxman:

The last piece, Joe Borini's ``Homecoming,'' is a comic skit about a sailor returning home from WWII and becoming convinced, mistakenly, that his wife has become a prostitute. Director Adam Davidson goes for the broad approach, which allows Jerry O'Connell to hit entertaining moments of arch exasperation.

But the piece never really surprises, and the misunderstandings are too transparent to be more than mildly amusing, on the level of a decent sitcom.

There's nothing especially worldly about the acts of ``Worldly Acts.'' While most of the pieces are in one way or another about couples, they don't reflect off of one another thematically in any interesting fashion. As a whole, the night is glueless and could probably be a more unified theatrical experience if the actors played multiple roles. As is, ``Worldly Acts'' isn't more than the sum of its parts. Some parts are terrific, some are not, and that sums it up.

The play is also mentioned at Zoetrope.com
