Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Mar 2, 2016
March 2, 2016
On, off and way-off-Broadway:
SAOIRSE (SER-sha) RONAN had to skip the Oscar parties and head straight back to Broadway. Sadly, she didn't win Best Actress for her work in "Brooklyn," but she started previews last night in a new production of ARTHUR MILLER's "The Crucible." Saoirse plays Abigail Williams in the fifth revival of the play which opens March 31st at the Walter Kerr Theater. Maybe a Tony is in her future? (Marino)
MARY KATE and ASHLEY OLSEN don't need a "Fuller House" --they're getting a museum! Racked.com says a couple of Brooklyn based comedians are running a Kickstarter fundraiser to create an exhibit dedicated to the "Full House" twins-turned--fashion-moguls. The sisters aren't taking part in the Netflix reboot of the popular "Full House" sitcom they starred in as toddlers --they're busy running their two luxury fashion labels, called Elizabeth and James and The Row. The completed exhibit would include a painting called "The Olsen Twins Hiding from the Paparazzi." Racked.com says the duo behind the Olsen Twins museum had previously run an exhibit dedicated to TONYA HARDING and NANCY KERRIGAN --out of an apartment. (Bartha)
Today's police blotter:
New Mexico cops say a guy broke into a convenience store for a single pack of smokes. But, it gets weirder.
The unidentified 24-year-old reportedly went to the Las Cruces store to buy smokes, but the store was closed. He's seen on surveillance video banging on the front door, but nobody answers. That's when the man allegedly kicks in the door, goes inside, and grabs a pack of cigarettes. Then, he's seen leaving $6-bucks on the counter to cover the cost of what he takes. Unfortunately, cops say the damage to the front door is estimated at around $800-dollars. He faces felony charges of breaking and entering. (Still)
Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places:
Sometimes you just have to have it. JONATHAN HOWARD and BRITTANY PENNINGTON, both 24, of Lexington, Kentucky, were arrested after they were caught having sex in the parking lot of Hardee's. The couple didn't try to hide anything as they were parked right next to the drive-thru window where several cars were lined up ordering breakfast. They were both charged with first-degree indecent exposure. (Myers)
