Weekend Post

My play, AMERICA'S SEXIEST COUPLE is now online!  It's a romantic comedy starring Joely Fisher and Tim Daly.  Also featured is Erik Odom.   

So what's it about? 

Two actors, who were "America's Sexiest Couple" on a popular '90s sitcom reunite for the first time in 25 years.  They face a lifetime of unresolved issues, longings, resentments, and regrets.  Like I said -- a comedy.  

My thanks to the New Works Theatre and Kevin Pollack for hosting this Zoom production.  It's a benefit for the Actors Fund so if you like the play we hope you'll donate to this very worthy cause.  

Thanks much.  Now sit back and enjoy AMERICA'S SEXIEST COUPLE.

Is this available for only a limited time? Sometimes a play is up for a weekend, a week. Netflix made The Trail of the Chicago 7 available for 48 hours, through midnight tonight, and I want to watch again before the window closes.

I especially like her murder mysteries.

Charming and funny. Thanks so much for giving me a lovely Saturday morning watching this, and thanks for all the work for the Actors Fund.

Grace,

You probably don't remember, but you guided my partner and I through our first arbitration (which was a very tricky one) and your advice allowed us to win. So thanks again (after a gazillion years).

This is a test. I have been unable to post comments via Safari. Maybe I can post comments in Firefox.

I loved this! This is my favorite of yours I've seen so far. What a great couple and chemistry even over Zoom. (Also the best sex scene I've seen on Zoom. :)

I remember that arbitration so well. You and David were SOOO lovely to deal with, it was a pleasure (as much as credit arbitrations could be). As I recall, it was the movie Volunteers and your scripts were so funny. I'm so glad you remember be, it was a highlight for me, especially as I had spent much of law school at UCLA going to Paramount on Fridays to see the filming of Cheers. I hope you're well -- I really loved the play and very much appreciated the difficulty of the zoom production. It was well-executed. Thanks.

I saw this play on stage. It was very funny. The audience loved it. This version might be good too.

I think this is a good drama, not a comedy.

I was jarred by two moments. One, when she mentioned an execution. And when she was looking for her car keys while drunk.

That was fun, thanks Ken. I like both actors, and it was great seeing them.

I was a huge fan of Connie Stevens, growing up. That's Joely's mom.

I enjoyed the show, and donation made. I realized I knew who Joely was, but wasn't very familiar with her work. She was delightful! (And is it just me, or does she sound a LOT like her sister Carrie?)

I really enjoyed this. Watched it twice! Would love to see it in person. Happily made a donation to The Actor's Fund.
