Happy New Year From LemonWade!

newyearssydney1Happy New Year from LemonWade! A big thank you from me and from my partner, Jerry Wade, to all of you who regularly click on this site.

Things I’m looking forward to in 2009:

1) The Bridge Project — A theatre partnership between the Old Vic in London and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in New York. Directed by Sam Mendes, the first offering, “The Cherry Orchard,” debuts this weekend at BAM.

2) “The Lovely Bones” — “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson helms the adaptation of Alice Sebold’s novel, about a murdered girl who watches the effects of her death on her family and friends. A late 2009 release.

3) “The Kindly Ones” — Jonathan Littell’s international fiction best-seller about a Nazi executioner, originally published in French in 2006, will be available in English translation in early March.

4) Whitney Houston’s comeback album — It’s been long delayed, apparently because Whit’s vocal cords were ravaged by her heavy drugging for all those years. But my spies tell me that she’s back to sounding pretty great. Release date TBD.

5) “A Moon To Dance By” — Thom Thomas’s play starring Jane Alexander as Frieda (Mrs. D.H.) Lawrence premieres at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. Performances from February 4.

6) “Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt” — With a title like that (from Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat), how can you resist?
