The Devil’s Disciple

Friday, December 21st, 2007 | All Things, Arts

At the Irish Repertory Theatre tonight for The Devil’s Disciple, the first of George Bernard Shaw’s Plays for Puritans (1901) and his only full-length play set in America.  The Revolutionary War-era comedy is the story of rascal Dick Dudgeon, a renegade at odds with his strict, religious society.  As usual, Shaw’s acerbic wit shines in its skewering of self-important piety and political conceit.

Lorenzo Pisoni was all rakish charm in the lead role, gleefully tweaking the establishment, while proving himself in action to be as moral a character as any.

Glowing reviews all around, and a well deserved extended run.

At Ideya in SoHo for the Gothamist holiday party.

Did I really use the term “slow circling of the drain” while chatting with Editor and Co-founder Jen Chung?  Good grief, talk about too much information.

At least the cubanos were tasty, and the mojitos strong.  Perhaps too strong.

A little holiday shopping, a little holiday jazz. Rather unexpectedly, this turned out to be a very good day.
