Sept 26 - Oct 29, 2006 (NYC)

Ed Harris

This one-man show was written and directed by Neil LaBute and stars Ed Harris. It is being performed at the Public Theater in New York City from September 26 - October 29, 2006.

(recently extended into November - so see it if you can)

I saw it on September 30, 2006 at 2PM. After the show I met Neil LaBute and Ed Harris and took their portroids. If you don't believe me, look on this page for proof. See?

It first ran at Everyman Palace Theater in Cork, Ireland. I don't know the dates, so don't ask me.

May 17 - July 8, 2006 (NYC)

Eric McCormack

This one-man, four-woman show was written by Neil LaBute and directed by Jo Bonney. Eric McCormack was the one-man I referred to earlier (like one sentence ago). It was performed at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in New York City from May 17 to July 8, 2006.

I saw it on May 20, 2006. After the show, I met most of the cast, including Eric McCormack, as shown.

David Schwimmer

This one-man, four-woman show was written by Neil LaBute and ... hey, what gives? Eric McCormack was the one-man, not David Schwimmer! Wrong!! Schwimmer originated the role of the one-man when it was performed in London in May 2005.

I didn't see that performance, but saw David Schwimmer in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial on Broadway, which was the reason he didn't reprise his role for the Off-Broadway debut of Some Girl(s).

David Schwimmer is expected to direct Some Girl(s) in it's LA debut. Don't let us down, David!

Brooke Smith

The first of the four women represented in Some Girl(s) was Brooke Smith. Here she is. I took her portroid. She was really friendly, like nice, not like "friendly". You probably knew what I meant.

Judy Reyes

The second of the four women was Judy Reyes. She was also very frie ... nice. She may have been my favorite performer in the show. Nothing against the other excellent performers, but she was my favorite. Subtle acting. Gets me every time.

Maura Tierney

The fourth of the four women was Maura Tierney. You're probably wondering why the third isn't pictured, or given a heading. It was Fran Drescher, but she escaped the Polaroid's eye. Too bad for her.

Maura, though, took the moment in time to let me portroid her, even whilst on her way to a quick lunch. What a gem!

Ben Stiller

This Is How It Goes played at The Public Theater in New York sometime I am too lazy to research ago. I also read the playbook. Is it called a "playbook"?

Ben did an excellent job as "MAN". He was given a name later in the show, but LaBute often likes to just have "MAN" or "WOMAN" as his character's names. I don't really know what he likes. I didn't ask him.

Ben (Stiller) did an excellent job, though, in this play. I'd see him again, given the chance.
