I Hosted A Portrait Unveiling of The Normal Heart Stars

Yesterday at Sardi’s, I hosted the presentation of caricatures of three stars of Broadway’s The Normal Heart revival: Joe Mantello, Ellen Barkin, and John Benjamin Hickey.

Barkin told me her son said this is the biggest kind of honor — and it is, though she later joked to me that the portrait makes her looks like Scarlett Johansson.

Not that she was complaining, lol.
