Some Good News

So, for a change of pace, let's talk about something fun. There is a new Netflix murder mystery out. That isn't all that new or fun, but the writer / director is, Michael Cristofer.

He has NOT as uncomfortable as he looked.
I actually meet Michael Cristofer with Ed at the US Open one year (2016), and yes I made a bit of a fool of myself. I introduced myself and told him how much I loved him in Mr. Robot - and we talked a bit about Broadway. Later, I went and googled him because he said he had been on Broadway.

I was a fool! The man is an icon. He won a Tony Award AND a Pulitzer Prize for The Shadow Box. He wrote a ton of plays and movies (including the Witches of Eastwick). He directed GIA where he was nominated for an Academy Award and did win the Director Guild of America's best director award. (link to his amazing bio).

So I went back, apologized for knowing so little and we chatted. Since his heydays were in the 70s and 80s he could not have been more gracious and we chatted a lot.

Well, now he is back with a new Netflix murder mystery that has great reviews. He wrote and directed it. I cannot wait to see it!
