Ben Mezrich. If you don’t know him, you should. Mezrich is really rich.
He wrote bestsellers like “Bitcoin Billionaires” and “Bringing Down the House”. Going from bull market to bull market, the guy’s crypto is insane.
Fluctuating towards immortality, his newborn “The Antisocial Network” becomes a film. Another, “The Accidental Billionaires,” spawned the movie “The Social Network,” which was about the founding of Facebook, and Armie Hammer (excuse the expression) played the Winklevoss twins, and – ready? – Scott Rudin was the producer. The news, due in September, concerns a recent wild ride on Wall Street with a group of thugs collecting dead stocks of live gold.
Maybe we ordinary people just need to look at the positive side of the stock market: the healthy and safe investments of today are the tax losses of tomorrow.
Continuing the march of the future yesterday – after a movie about Billie Holiday, now here is Universal’s biography on Cher which is so impressive and formidable that it even survived its hairpieces.
The producers are the “Mamma Mia!” team. Writer Eric Roth won an Oscar for “Forrest Gump”. Dear co-product. Who plays it, who knows. Maybe RuPaul? Her wardrobe is just as awesome.
Staging the scene
Checking out who was on what was once Broadway, Joel Gray said, “I started at age 8 on a kids’ show in Cleveland and worked my whole life. Winning the Tony for playing host in “Cabaret” was one of the best times of my life. He is now heading to London with Eddie Redmayne.
What about the Yiddish version of “Fiddler on the Roof” that he made?
“I was heading to Australia, but then came the pandemic. He is now scheduled for Ahmanson from Los Angeles. This year, on Zoom, I produced “On Borrowed Time” with Bill Irwin, Sam Waterston and Blair Brown. Coming up, I’ll be directing a play with Sam Waterston.
What’s the correct way to spell your last name – Gray or GrAy?
“The correct way to spell my last name is KATZ.”
The park is going green tonight
Tonight. Remember when Tavern on the Green was so popular it shoveled in the green? Well, it becomes chartreuse again. Tonight is a first. An opening in the opening. Patrons, seated outside, are treated to a concert of Broadway stars for the first time. It’s a light dinner at 7.45am, plentiful drinks, two hours, entertainment hosted by Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ star Ariana DeBose at 8.30am and bring your own galoshes.
BritBrit the Poet
Before starting the 12-year-old guardianship fight with her father, Britney Spears wrote this poem:
Magical nights filled with stars / Silence is golden, no moving cars.
Private dinners, romantic fires / Little corners of paradise, whatever your heart desires.
Friendly greetings and never goodbye / When you’re having fun, time flies.
As we sit down and prepare to do our part, I thank you with all my heart, Turtle Bay.
An avenue in the park. “Your new friend seems a little lazy. What she does?”
Answer: “Nothing. He inherits.
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
