How To Murder Your Life By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

The Costume Institute

Independent/Courtesy of The Metropolitan Museum of Art/

Carrie Rebora Barratt, Rei Kawakubo, Andrew Bolton, and Anna Wintour at The Met’s Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the InBetween advance press event.

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

The Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted a press presentation on March 6 at Pavillon Vendôme in Paris, France, to reveal early details about The Costume Institute’s upcoming exhibition, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between, opening on May 4.

Rei Kawakubo and Anna Wintour joined Museum Deputy Director Carrie Rebora Barratt and Costume Institute Curator in Charge Andrew Bolton for a glimpse of some of the ensembles to be featured in the exhibition, on view May 4 through September 4 at The Met in New York City. 

How To Murder Your Life is a memoir about the life of writer Cat Marnell. Set in the glamorous world of NYC’s downtown nightclubs and fashion magazines, it’s darkly humorous and totally real. M o s t l y i t ’s a stor y of drug addiction and self-sabotage. And the story of Cat, a Condé Nast drop out, is almost as addicting as the drugs she takes. I t a l l begins with a prescription for Ritalin to treat her ADD at a New England prep school. It continues to New York, where the reader follows Cat’s amphetamine-fueled career rise and fall, and rise again. She starts her impressive resume as an intern in the beauty departments of NYLON, Teen Vogue, Glamour, and Lucky. Murder is a tale of a prescription drug addict and a “doctor shopper” who manipulates Upper East Side psychiatrists for pills, pills, and more pills. As a lonely bulimic she spends hundreds on binge foods. She starts her life in New York City as a promiscuous party girl who dances barefoot on banquets but later becomes a weepy and hallucination-prone insomniac who will take anything — anything — to fall asleep. This could include an entire box of Benedryl, which leads to hallucinations of mice inside her apartment (eek!). At twenty-six, Cat was working as an associate beauty editor at

Lucky, one of America’s top fashion magazines, while living the life of an addict. As a beauty editor at Conde Nast, a place where employees don’t come to work with split ends let alone bloody knees, she hides the fact that she hasn’t slept in days with selftanner. She spirals deeper into her addiction, overpowering her ambition, and coming to the realization that she is just too sick to continue working at the magazine. Cat later finds a different voice as a founding editor at xoJane. com where she writes honest columns about her drug addiction. Headlines include “Gonna Wash That Angel Dust Right Outta My Hair.” Even so, she is mandated by her boss to rehab yet again. The story gives the reader a large dose of cold hard truth through the eyes of a young female addict who just can’t say no. And no drug is off limits. It’s about being in one’s addiction and suffering through it, and all the highs and lows along the way. Follow Cat on her journey and the progression of her addiction, from the Condé Nast building (where she rides the elevator alongside Anna Wintour), to seedy nightclubs, abusive friendships, a suicide attempt, smoking angel dust with graffiti writers, rehabs, and metal hospitals. H o w t o M u r d e r Yo u r L i f e i s mesmerizing and brutally honest.

With so much to do in the greater New York, from Manhattan to Montauk, being part of a live studio audience is an easy way to cut expenses. Not only is it free, in a city where drink prices can cost more than an actual meal, it's exciting. Did we mention it's free? See your favorite talk show personalities like Jimmy Fallon, Kelly Ripa, Stephen

Colbert, and more. Or, in this case, Wendy Williams. How you doin? Often times studio audiences get fantastic giveaways, if you choose the right one, or at least one great party. Google your favorite shows filmed in New York to find the correct website and book in advance. Remember, you're competing with tourists (if they walk fast enough to get there).

He Saved The World

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

One of Douglas Elliman’s top brokers, Hamptons resident, and film producer Raphael Avigdor tells the story of Stanislov Petrov, a Soviet officer who saved the world from nuclear holocaust in the award-winning docudrama film, The Man Who Saved The World. The film stars Kevin Costner with appearances by Robert De Niro, Matt Damon, and Walter Cronkite. Based on a true story, the gripping film centers around Petrov’s actions on September 26, 1983. Petrov discovered an incorrect satellite report that American missiles were headed toward the Soviet Union. Suspecting that the system was malfunctioning, he convinced his superiors to delay a counterattack until further confirmation, thus avoiding what could have been the end of life on earth. “It’s incredible to think how we have walked the world . . . not knowing that we wouldn’t have been here, if it wasn’t for Mr. Petrov’s decision,” stated

Cronkite. The film shows viewers just how close the planet came to apocalypse in this epic Cold War thriller. Petrov single-handedly prevented a nuclear war but struggled with getting his life back on track as his family fell apart and he suffered extreme grieving and loneliness. It was up to Petrov to alert his leadership to launch the counter attack that would have wiped out half of USA’s population. For years this harrowing story about the man who saved the world went untold. “I’m lucky enough to get to play heroes. I’ve often said I get to play people braver than myself. Often times what we’re portraying are men like Stanislov,” said Costner about the film. “Most of you might remember when the Cold War was at its height. The Soviet Union had just shot down a Korean jet, 260 people killed.” The film screened recently at the Gold Coast International Film Festival’s popular Douglas Elliman Film Series last week and followed with a Q & A with the films executive producers, Avigdor along with Christian D. Bruun and Mark Romeo. Sponsored by Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the Elliman Film Series offers culturally, historically, aesthetically, and artistically important films to the Long Island and Queens communities.

astrology & all Week of 3/15/17 - 3/22/17 Highlights of the week: The Sun enters Aries and the Spring Equinox arrives to herald in the new season.
 Jupiter, the planet of enthusiasm and good luck, in Libra is making us examine our relationships. As Jupiter is fighting with Venus in Aries (passions and impatience) some of our relationships can get interesting. Eris, the planet of Discord, meets up with Uranus, the planet of unexpected happenings, on Friday for potentially explosive revelations or actions. Be careful on St Patrick’s Day and don’t give in to cranky behavior. ARIES (3/20 - 4/20) As the Sun shines on your sign this month, you are entering a powerful time to put those plans in action. Relationships are either sublime or ridiculous. TAURUS (4/20 - 5/20) Love is everywhere and you are enjoying it.

Communications with lovers, family, and co-workers are easy and lead to renewed joy. GEMINI (5/21 - 6/22) Time to release the people or situations that are draining you? Don’t cling to outworn behaviors as they will exhaust you. New love/job is on the horizon. CANCER (6/22 - 7/22) Try to be objective when dealing with a work or home situation that needs to be revised. You can’t get what you want until you speak up. LEO (7/23 - 8/23) You can now use all your creative energy to improve your diet, your job, or your finances. If your love life is not on sizzle, time to rework that, too. VIRGO (8/24 - 9/23) Try not to pull the rug out from everyone because you are tired of your kindness not being recognized. Plan to do for yourself for a change and watch what happens.

LIBRA (9/24 - 10/22) Success is in the air and you can almost taste it. There is still work to do but rest assured you will be rewarded. Don’t lose your famous “cool.” SCORPIO (10/23 - 11/21) If you suddenly find yourself feeling very vulnerable, don’t run away to hide. Express your needs and concerns as simply as possible to clear the air. Don’t speak from anger. SAGITTARIUS (11/22 - 12/21) Any new opportunities that appear this week are to be taken, as they may lead you to something wonderful. Your love life and work situations are soon going to change for the better. CAPRICORN (12/21 - 1/20) All work and no play is very boring. Stop worrying and take the time to relax with those you love. Laughter is indeed the best medicine. AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/19) Inspiring ideas seem to come from out of nowhere. What you are feeling is correct. Is it time to make new plans? If you do, they will lead to greater satisfaction. PISCES (2/19 - 3/20) Money and self-worth issues are on your mind.

Broadway Reporting From

(& Sometimes Off)

By Isa Goldberg

When Glenn Close created the role of Norma Desmond in the 1994 Broadway production of Sunset Boulevard, it was something of a camp Hollywood event. Her oversized gestures and vibrant voice seemed like a humorous counterpoint to the image of the fading silent film star she portrayed. Watching her now – 23 years later – there won’t be many titters in the audience. Nor is there a sweeping staircase that lands nearly center stage as there was in the original production. T h e r e i s , h o w e v e r, a m o r e believable, more vicious, more fearful and frightening Hollywood icon to

discover. And that is the present day Close, who we follow in close-up throughout most of the two acts. Beyond any ordinary vanity, Norma is the object of her own ritualistic devotion. As Close portrays her, she is a universal character, embittered by her faded glory to the point of delusion. It’s truly old age that lurks here like a hideous evil. Deftly directed by Lonnie Price at the legendary Palace Theater, this revival feels like a concert-style production – in the manner of director John Doyle – and without the glitz of a Broadway musical. Sunset is a sung through musical, after all, and in this production there aren’t

any supersized dance numbers. The orchestra takes up most of the stage. With a minimalist set (James Noonan), darkly lit as though through a smoky camera lens (Mark Henderson), the production evokes a sense of impending gloom, as in a horror movie from the ‘40s. It takes a while before we even hear a splashy upbeat Broadway tuner. Fortunately, that song, “Every movie’s a circus,” ramps up with jazzy rhythms and a chorus of Hollywood kids, hanging around at Paramount Studios. This is one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s more beautiful scores, in my opinion. Its cynical lyrics are the work of his collaborator Don Black, along with Christopher Hampton. Close’s costumes (Anthony Powell) call forth not only the Hollywood icons of the ‘40s, but also the femme fatales and villains she helped to make famous – Cruella De Vil, among them. As Norma’s love interest, Joe Gillis, Michael Xavier is a dashing tenor, and

Glenn Close as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard. here he definitely wins the bathing suit contest. Shobhan Dillon, making her Broadway debut as the young woman who catches Joe’s eye, comes as a welcome relief to the vamps of old. Still, Close is in a class of her own. Hard Times In D.C. In Steve Levinson’s If I Forget, the dysfunctional American family stands at the verge of self-destruction with no safety net in sight. Billed as a comedy, it doesn’t take long before this tale, produced by the Roundabout Theatre at the Laura Pels Theatre, starts to sound like the Book of Job. Set in a white upper middle class neighborhood in Washington D.C., around 2000-20001, these are “hard times.” There is “another Bush in the White House,” and Michael (Jeremy Shamos) has just published his academic treatise, “Forgetting the Holocaust.” To his Jewish family, this is like inviting a suicide bomber to lunch. And the trustees of the university where Michael is up for tenure don’t feel too differently. To Michael’s credit, the book speaks to American chauvinism and the crisis over immigration. And it raises the question of what have we really learned from our history. Regardless, the entire family arrives at the home where they all grew up, and where their father, Lou (Larry Br yggman) is still living with the youngest of the three siblings, Sharon (Maria Dizzia). Lou can no longer take care of himself, and the family gathers to strategize. Two acts run by quickly despite the despairing nature of the material, thanks to a well-honed acting ensemble. Shamos, who has the gift of making every character look and feel like it’s just him, reveals Michael’s hypocrisy, even if the character doesn’t recognize it. Clearly, Michael, who is devoted to the life of intellect, cannot live by the values he professes. Bryggman, one of the great voices of the New York stage, portrays the aging Jewish merchant with crackling wisdom. We respect his insights, especially when

Food & Beverage

Compiled By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

The Springs Tavern Dan and Charlene DeSmet will launch The Springs Tavern this month in the location that was formerly Wolfie’s Tavern. The historic location has served the local community as a tavern, restaurant, bar, live music venue and gathering spot for over 80 years. The Springs Tavern plans to honor and perpetuate this historical role by providing its customers with a comfortable, clean, tavern environment with good food, live entertainment, and a full schedule of sports viewing. Frequented by famed abstract artists Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning in the mid 40s, the décor will pay homage to the history of the neighborhood. After a complete renovation and redesign The Springs Tavern will feature a restored original hardwood floor in the dining room with bead-board wainscoting and wood trim. A completely new oak bar provides the focal point of the tavern. Eight stateof-the-art HD and 4K televisions will feature NFL Sunday Ticket, every MLB game, and Premiere League Soccer games with a multi-zone eight-speaker sound system. Historical framed photos of Springs, East Hampton, and the previous iterations of the Tavern will dot the walls. Prints of works by Pollock and de Kooning are also featured to celebrate and acknowledge the


Independent/James J. Mackin

impact that these two artists had on the Springs neighborhood and the tavern specifically. The friendly atmosphere, casual dining menu, and flexible seating plan of The Springs Tavern will allow customers to have a range of experiences whether it’s a full sit-down dinner, a quick appetizer and drink at the bar, or an afternoon of sports. Scheduled live music, occasional karaoke, and even darts will all work together to recreate the historical role of the community tavern that has served generations of Springs residents from this location throughout the decades. The Springs Tavern will feature American pub-style fare executed by Chef Michael Ruggiero at an affordable price point with a children’s menu, in a warm and family friendly environment. Ruggiero brings his culinary experience including Nick & Toni’s, Harvest on Fort Pond, Fresno, and Montauk Lake Club. Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, the menu will feature seasonal soups, salads and appetizers with entrée selections that includes fish dishes, burgers, fries, grilled chicken, specialty sandwiches, and fries. Vegetarian and gluten free items will also be available. The Springs Tavern will be serving dinner seven days as well as a lunch menu on weekends and holidays.

Hampton Coffee

Hampton Coffee Company is ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with specially themed beverages and delicious special menu items all month long.

Both beverages are available every day throughout the month of March at Hampton Coffee Company’s cafés in Westhampton Beach, Water Mill, Southampton, and Aquebogue.
