The Life of Reilly

Despite the bleak picture of my life I write here, I do get out once in a while. Last Saturday, for instance, Jay and I went to see “The Life of Reilly,” the incredible documentary of Charles Nelson Reilly’s one-man show.

It is brilliant. Worth every award it wins. Well written, amazingly filmed, beautifully performed by a brilliant actor.

Check out the very fun website for clips and show times. Support independent film!

PS: Charles died on May 25, 2007 at age 76. He was survived by partner of 27 years, Patrick Hughes. Read his NY Times obituary here.
