I've been on a Broadway binge this week.

And while all five shows had their redeeming qualities (James Earl Jones - Green Day - Tennessee Williams), the two standouts were Good People with Francis McDormand (!) and La Cage Aux Folles with Jeffrey Tambor (!) and Harvey Fierstein (!!).

I blame my mother for my theater appreciation — we used to listen to the soundtrack to A Chorus Line on the way to kindergarten. I’m starting to think not everyone belted out “At the Ballet” every morning.

Thanks, Mom. This is starting to cost more than my coke habit. I don’t know how Lohan does it.
