Recently, James and I went to Julia Stiles’ & James Wirt’s new play, Phoenix. It’s an off broadway play at the most darling theatre, Cherry Lane Theatre. With just two actors in the whole play, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I was very impressed! It was wonderful to see two very talented actors up close and personal performing. In an intimate theater, with nothing to hide behind, Stiles and Wirt really shined. And their chemistry was off the charts! I was entertained from start to finish and wanting more in the end. I just loved how raw and genuine it was. Overall, I was very impressed. And to top it off, I even got to meet and talk with the beautiful Ms. Stiles at the end. You can tell she is so down to earth and genuine in real life too. She has killer style and oozes coolness (is that even a word?). Basically, she is someone you want to be best friends with…for real!
If you are in the area, I highly recommend seeing Phoenix. You will love Wirt and Stiles’ performance in it. And hey, it’s even named after my hometown, so you know it’s going to be great! You can buy tickets here! Hurry before this play ends August 23rd!
