Last scene of my last day. The Abbot is awakened by a monk with a candle who brings bad news. Cut. Last dinner at Osteria del Pegno on Vicolo Monte Vecchio. Last stroll to the hotel and pack, sleep, fly. One of the best jobs ever

The end of a project sneaks up on you- too few days to say goodbye to your new friends and family. Too few days to wander the streets of Rome and practice your pitiful Italian. I love the company of The Name of the Rose and I couldnt have imagined a more delicious role

My characters always seem to end up in a tunnel, AC duct, shopping crate or the trunk of a car. I suppose it is one of the devices of action/intrigue but it is too cramped and airless for comfort. Even worse for the camera operator who’s usually in there too! Cozy.

Left wintry NYC for Spring in Rome- 72* F and sunny on Sunday. Everyone outdoors and the sidewalk tables full. Stunning Caravaggios at San Luigi dei Francesi. But today reality and the workweek return- cold and pouring rain. Thank god we’re filming indoors.

Basil Twist’s abstract puppet show Symphonie Fantastique at HERE in NYC is a wonderful and elemental theatrical experience. Mysterious and suggestive, the audience ends up imposing their own narrative and metaphors on the underwater display. Like a painting come to life!

Saw a great prod of Tom Stoppard’s TRAVESTIES at Roundabout Theater last night. Difficult script- art, politics and history are scrambled with Oscar Wilde’s IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST in the failing memory of an aging Englishman. Stunning verbal gymnastics. LMAO

I really love the Donald Link restaurants in the Warehouse District here in New Orleans- Herbsaint, Pêche, and Cochon are all fabulous, each in their own distinct way. Thrilling food that you think about for days

Had to reschedule my return to NYC due to snowstorm. Nothing to do but try to tough it out a few more days in New Orleans. Oh well... 😎

We attended last night- music and fashion amidst Mardi Gras parade figures. A really great set by dj Ducky!

A bright warm day in New Orleans, good for a long ride on the St. Charles streetcar. Jovial crowd at the Rusty Nail after work and lots of dogs. (Love the dog-friendly towns.) Had a Gumbo Empanada at Empa-NOLA in the Auction House Market. Bourbon Fest tomorrow! LLBTR

I suspect tomorrow will be another winter-travel debacle for me. Typical. My air-travel plans seem to agitate Arctic air masses. I could get to New Orleans faster by dog-sled. Woof

The 3 biggest towers at Hudson Yards just west of us. It’s like watching the construction of Oz

Always nice to return to the USA from work abroad. Customs continues to be exasperating but Home is Home and I can get a turkey burger with fries and sleep in my own bed. Tomorrow I’ll be looking for someone who speaks Italian! Ha

Here’s what is humbling: watching your new actor friend carry on fluent conversations in 4 languages in as many hours. All our cast are fully polyglot except for one nationality: can you guess which? 😩

Surprise winter weather here in Rome! Looks like 4” of wet snow and it’s quite cold (32*F/0*C) Schools closed, tree limbs down and long lines at the grocery store. Just like winter at home, haha. I didnt pack any of the right gear for this.

On The Name of the Rose we spend a lot of time considering the hot topics of the Catholic Church in the 1320s. The Inquisition and the Franciscan movement’s call for poverty. It complicates yr reaction to all the great monuments and churches of Rome.

Oops— again I misunderstand the Twitter system. Disregard that last one- it was for Carrie! Haha 🤓
