house progressive new plays in a setting inspired by the grand architecture and design of traditional 19th Century venues.
I knew it was going to be good. But you don't know that everyone else is going to think so, or that so many people would think so.
I find a lot of similarities just in the basic genetic makeup of these guys, of Christopher Moltisanti [his character on the HBO show] and Nick Falco [his role on 'Law
Geographically, economically and culturally, they grew up kind of similar.
We take 'em to dinner. Lots of rituals revolve around food, as you saw. When you're asked to dinner, it's not such a good thing.
