Devere Smith Syndrome

If there were better showtimes, I'd purchase 2-4 discount tickets and treat some of y'all to this:

[ VIA New Yorkish ] :

Multiple Personalities on Bleecker Street

In Bridge & Tunnel, a new play at 45 Bleecker, Sarah Jones takes the stage as Mohammed Ali, a Pakistani accountant, Rashid, a Brooklyn rapper, Lorraine Levine, a poet from Long Island, and Gladys, a ''poet-performer-playwright-spoken-word artist-actress.'' Critics have been duly impressed: "Sarah Jones's one-woman multicharacter show 'Bridge & Tunnel' has received some of the most favorable reviews of the new year and, according to several eyewitness accounts, the most diverse audiences," writes Jason Zinoman in today's NY Times, and adds that the show's producers are talking of moving the show to Broadway.

All that leaves me with this question: What the heck has Anna Devere Smith been doing lately? Just want to know, is all.
