Brian J. SmithBrian J. Smith will be appearing in the off-Broadway play Little Black Dress. From Broadway World: “LITTLE BLACK DRESS – a new play by Ronan Noone, whose play THE ATHEIST starring Campbell Scott enjoyed considerable success Off-Broadway in 2008 – will be given its New York premiere this spring Off-Broadway, with previews set to begin Sunday, May 1 prior to an official press opening on Thursday, May 5 at Theatre at St. Clement’s (423 W. 46 St.) in Manhattan. Presented by The Exchange – an Off-Broadway theatre company specializing in new work – LITTLE BLACK DRESS is directed by Ari Edelson. Featured in the cast of LITTLE BLACK DRESS are Nina Hellman, Tobias Segal, Brian J. Smith and Dan Oreskes. With hints of A DOLL’S HOUSE and Sam Shepard, LITTLE BLACK DRESS — a funny, dark and poignant look at the sacrifices one makes when one leaves behind all that is familiar — LITTLE BLACK DRESS is set in a household in rural Blue River where Amy Beaudreaux lives with her boorish husband, their slacker pot-smoking son and his buddy, a gigolo.”

Beau Bridges returns tonight in his recurring role as Nick Brody in ABC’s Brothers & Sisters at 10:01 PM ET. The episode is called “For Better or for Worse” and is summarized in this press release provided by Futon Critic: “After Sarah confronts Brody about his being her father, she decides she no longer wants him to be a part of her life or Nora’s, but Nora just can’t seem to let him go. Meanwhile, Olivia struggles with the new addition of baby Daniel to the family.”

News Notes

News Flashes and Brief Follow-Ups

  • SG-1 in 'Window of Opportunity' in Season FourFranchise – With news that the Stargate franchise as we know it will end in a few weeks with the airing of SGU’s final episode “Gauntlet,” executive producer Joseph Mallozzi has begun to look back on his time with the productions, starting in Season Four of Stargate SG-1. He’s posting a series of entries dedicated to each season that he and writing partner Paul Mullie were in Vancouver, a place that they thought they would only be for a couple of years! Start reading his “Days of Stargate Past” in his April 22nd and April 23rd entries. Sadly, these reminiscent entries were sparked by the fact that they will start “de-rigging” Stage 5: “Stage 5, as you may or may not know, was home to Stargate: Universe’s Icarus base but, for many, many years before that, it held the standing sets for Stargate: SG-1: the SGC corridors, the infirmary, the control room, the briefing, Hammond’s office (later occupied by O’Neill, then Landry) and, of course, the gate room. Sad times indeed.”
