Not to mention the fact that Bryan is actually writing this bio so it feels a tad obnoxious. The important thing Bryan wants you to know is that he has never been better than he is RIGHT NOW! It's also worth mentioning that Bryan likes to box and play tennis. He is not good enough to compete at either sport, but he enjoys telling people that his boxing and tennis are “high level.” Visit: http://bryancallen.com/. Watch: http://brya... (read more)

The Parisian Woman - New York City Theatre
Through November 19, 2017 - New York

The fact that House of Cards creator Beau Willimon's first Broadway play is set among the political classes of Washington should come as no surprise. However, unlike his icy Netlfix hit, The Parisian Woman is a full-on comedy, adapted from Henry Becque's 19th century farce La Parisienne. Leading the cast, and also making her Broadway debut, is Golden Globe nominee Uma Thurman. She's joined in the cast by Josh Lucas (American Psycho), Phillipa Soo (Hamilton) and Marton Csokas. Originally produced in Costa Mesa in 2013, The Parisian Woman follows a lawyer's wife who must use all her charms to try and secure her husband a nomination for Attorney General.

In Marcel, which they co-created, they play an aging physical comedian and an inscrutable, clipboard-wielding nemesis mysteriously enjoined to test him with a battery of absurd tasks. Slapstick meets the limits of age and "all ages laugh and recognize their own absurdity in the comic antics." – The Guardian A comedy about comedy, part performance and masterclass, about what makes audiences laugh. Performing in English, Jos Houben, dissects everyday life – a baby's first steps, a man falling in a restaurant, the essence of various cheeses – revealing why laughter is at the core of our humanity. The Guardian calls it a show about "how a body can make people laugh."
