- Naked Truth: Marisa Tomei Tackles Her Riskiest Role Yet
- Party Loyalty: Socials Brace for a Chill
- Mistress of Cognac
- Composer Elliott Carter at 100
It appears Elliott Carter even gets coverage in the fashion press. Here are some quotes from Michelle Edgar's surprisingly good profile of the composer:
...I cannot help but feel that I'm getting a lot of performances because of my age." He smiles. "If I had these kind of performances at a time when I was not strikingly old--I would have felt I had made it.
Sorry, you will need to go elsewhere for Marisa Tomei quotes although I will point you to WGBH radio, broadcasting the premiere of Carter's Interventions on December 5th, prior to his 100th birthday on December 11th.
