Perfect Stranger

Last night we saw a wonderful play at the Mark Taper Forum called Distracted. The play was basically about a young boy who is diagnosed with ADD and how his parents and other crazy people handle it. I highly recommend it. It starred Rita Wilson, who is Tom Hanks' wife (Tom was not in attendance that we could see, but if he was we had better seats than he did). Another actor stole the show, however. He was incredible. He played 4 different roles and each was so distinct and unique, often bouncing back and forth within a line. He really was very versatile and talented, and the entire play I sat there thinking "I know him! How do I know him? He looks familiar but I can't put my finger on it."

Well Kevin figured it out when we got home. He played Balki Bartokomous from the popular tv sitcom of the late 80s/early 90s, "Perfect Strangers." If you don't know what I'm talking about, don't worry about it. If you do, then yes, you should be as impressed as I am. He did a great job, really.

Bronson Pinchot is his real name, right? He was on the Surreal Life a couple seasons back. I HATED him when he was on that show. He was such a louse. I'm glad the play was good though.
