The Drama Of It All: NCIS Star On Gay Marriage Comments (0)

Pauley-Perrette-Larry-King

Boy-Culture-logo1Straight ally Pauley Perrette of NCIS sits with Larry King for Larry King Now, talking about her hit show's 12th (!) season (it's literally the most popular drama in the world outside of Gaga vs. Madonna) and touching on gay issues, including marriage equality:

“I’ve just been a part of this—part of this equality campaign for so long, and the last few years, especially since Obama’s been in office, has been so fascinating for us. We’ve made remarkable strides at such a fast pace.”

And She's Looking Good: An Intimate Evening With Linda Lavin Comments (0)
  Linda-Lavin-2 Linda-Lavin-3 Linda-Lavin-1

I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend a private, for-donors-only performance by Linda Lavin at Baruch College last night, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the George and Mildred Weissman School of Arts and Sciences and the 10th anniversary of the Baruch Performing Arts Center. 

LavinWith Stritch (L), and taking her bows

Lavin performed with accompaniment by Billy Stritch and her top-notch band (including her painter/actor/jazz drummer of a hubby, Steve Bakunas, of whom she said, “I married the drummer. Cool!”).

Lavin is leggy and lovely at a hard-t0-believe 77, and was having (1) a ball, (2) a great hair day and (3) a better leg day than most will have in a lifetime; it's incredible to think that she is actually slightly older than Elaine Stritch (February 2, 1925—July 17, 2014) was when the latter dame first performed her legendary Elaine Stritch at Liberty show in 2001. Lavin is so youthful that unless you're an IMDb addict like me, the impact of her cabaret act has little in common with Stritch's—there's no “I'm Still Here” vibe because Lavin looks like she's mid-way through a career, not defiantly placing an exclamation point at the end of it. Just absolutely ageless, in good voice and effortlessly able to engage an audience of bigshots with her girlish banter and wry, nostalgic peeks back at her career.

And yes, she fully embraces Alice (1976—1985).

Above, check out the delicious Sondheim number Lavin sang in 1966...she recreated it last night and it's still a hoot.

I won't go into great detail about the song selection (which was pleasingly heavy on the bossa nova) since this was a one-off, but if you're interested in hearing Lavin sing a loving rendition of her Alice theme song and charming versions of songs she first sang upwards of 50 years ago when she (and Joan Rivers and Rodney Dangerfield and many other greats) was playing in, as she recalls, every venue with “Downstairs” in the title, be on the look-out for a 2015 show at 54 Below. You'd be a damn fool to miss this.

Linda-Lavin-Baruch-Matthew-Rettenmund-2014-AliceGoin' through life with blinders on, it's tough to see how Lavin manages to make 77 the new 50!

Lavin made a brief appearance at a post-show champagne toast. I was able to congratulate her and to ask if she would honor my friend and I with a photo. Have you got a camera? she shot back, ready to get 'er done. Lovely, classy lady.

After the jump, listen to Lavin tackle that Alice theme in 2013...

I MarriedOn TV, she starred in I Married Dora (1987—1988, co-starring Daniel Hugh Kelly and Juliette Lewis, which famously announced its own cancelation in its final episode), Shannon's Deal (1989—1991) and guest-starred on dozens of shows and twice played Sofia Vergara's mother on Modern Family...even though she was only 13 years older than Vergara.

Check out this snippet of an interview with the late actress, speaking about her approach to the arts:
