Frankly Scarlett

You and Arias make a gorgeous couple. Project Runway's Austin Scarlett and entourage made their way to HERE last week to check out Thierry Mughler's latest concept for Arias, designed by fellow "Runway" Alum Chris March. King of sportswear judge Michael Kors was by a few weeks ago and busted a few seams throughout the evening, having been thoroughly entertained by Arias' antics. Our show should be a must see for all Runway-ers both old and new. Come one, come all Joey's corsette is not to be missed.

Darling I love you but give me park Avenue....

Joey thinks Basil needs to get back to New York immediately! Pickups (trucks) and Hay? Basil is actually in Fort Worth lending a hand to Hip Pocket Theatre's under the stars production of The Island of Dr. Moreau. Basil your goddess Joey demands you get back to him and the family as soon as possible.

Breuer meets Arias

It was bound to happen eventually; maverick theatre outlaw Lee Breuer would meet face to face with Ms. Arias and future generations of theatre goers will never be the same. It boggles the mind to imagine what Twist, Arias and Breuer might conjure together. Lee and Basil travel to France together in a few weeks to meet with The Comedie Francaise regarding a new project, will Arias be their new leading lady?

Legally Arias

Jerry Mitchell is becoming one of our biggest fans, bringing back with him this time quite a handsome group of Broadway legends including Jack O'Brien and David Rockwell. The goddess had them eating out of her.....hands. Watch out Bailey Hanks! We truly love you Jerry, keep coming back!

Crooners and Producers

Joey baring his "ink", was visited by crooner Debbie Divine and producer Tony Frere. Debbie joined Arias in New York for her days off from performing on tour with Al Jarreau and Tony and Joey are collaborating on the new much - awaited film on the life of Klaus Nomi. Superstars all.

Joey should write a book for the dirt he knows is major. Speaking of divulging secrets the family would rather forget, Christoper Ciccone arrived fashionably late for the show on Friday night, but better late than never. Go and read Joey's birthday wishes to Madonna in the form of a sweet letter on her recent 50th at
WOW Madonna Birthday Memories

The Joey Show

The very lovely Laura Linney, another New York native that we LOVE, accompanied Chris and Anne Sadler (Dorothy's Grandchildren as previously mentioned!) on Friday nite to visit Joey and Basil at HERE.

Dorothy and Griff

This is Chris Sadler on the right, one of Dorothy B. Williams many gorgeous grandchildren. He came with his wife Anne, to visit Arias- also to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the opening of the Dorothy B. Williams Theatre. Dorothy was Basil's beloved grandmother, and wife to Griff Williams. Griff was a big band leader, and his string puppets, that were created for his orchestra in 1933 by Theodore Mack of Chicago, are currently playing in Arias with a Twist.

Neighbors dropping by

The gorgeous and charismatic Marisa Tomei dropped by the see Joey and Basil last night. This real New Yorker is one of our favorite downtown staples. These three are local treasures and I am so glad they all call New York their home.
