Apparently there have been some screenings of the Coen Brothers latest film A Serious Man.  At least one confirmed in New York for people who worked on Ethan Coen’s play Offices.  One viewer described it as “Very Hebrew” and that it “was shot beautifully, Michael Stuhlbarg is a genius, and it plays like a fable out of Jewish folklore.”

Also, the MPAA has released their rating of A Serious Man.  Rated R for language, some sexuality/nudity and brief violence. 

October 2nd gets closer everyday.  Can’t wait!

Ethan Coen going Off-Broadway, Again

ethansOffices Ethan Coen is returning to the Atlantic Theater Company with a set of three one act plays entitled Offices directed by Neil Pepe.  Each takes place in the workplace and is focused on white collar workers.  Peer Review, Homeland Security, and Struggle Season are the one acts.  Described as comedies Ethan warned “the audience will be the judge of that.” Inspiration for the theme comes from Ethan’s only job post-college as a typist in an office.  I guess he doesn’t consider being an award winning screenwriter, producer, director, author, poet, playwright a job.  Does this guy sleep? 

This is Ethan’s second foray as a playwright.  Almost An Evening, also directed by Pepe, premiered at the same theater before transferring to another after its extended engagement sold out.  Almost An Evening saw its final performance July 1, 2008.  A book with this trio of plays will be released on April 7, 2009.  You can order it here Almost an Evening

Offices will run from April 15 – May 31, 2009 at the Linda Gross Theater in New York.
