Wave goodbye, say hello

A couple of new pieces in this week's Time Out New York: a review of Yoko Ogawa's middling novel, The Housekeeper and the Professor, and an interview with director James Gray, whose latest film, the rather wonderful Two Lovers, comes out next week. Gray was such a good talker that the web version includes outtakes from the interview. Make sure you catch him at BAM on February 10, when he'll introduce a sneak preview of Two Lovers.

As it turns out, these two articles are my last for Time Out. As some of you may know, I'm going off to the New York Post, where I'll replace Clive Barnes as chief drama critic. Big shoes to fill, I know, I know. My first review will be the revival of Guys and Dolls on March 2.

I'm taking some vacation before starting the new gig. I may do some road reports in the coming two weeks, but mostly I'm planning to catch up on my reading.

Public-forum "congratulations!" to you!

Can you give Michael Riedel a "bygons" for me while you're there?

Yay! Or as we say 'Nice One!' - Congratulations and all the best for the new job - I am sure you will be missed at TONY, but can't wait to see your work at the Post.

Congratulations on your new digs! Terese Genecco asked me to send you this note (I do promotion and booking for her.) She is moving to NYC on the same day as your first Post review comes out! What a fantastic way to start her arts & entertainment reading in her new home than with an insightful Vincentelli take on a classic Broadway favorite. Hope the two of you have the opportunity to see each other out and about in the months to come! We all wish you much success! Have a relaxing vacation and a great time at the Post!

I hope Terese does her Frances Faye tribute again!
For those unware of Faye's genius, here's a taste:
