Last night Streep took to the stage at Koerner Hall with the Takács Quartet to perform a series of readings from author Philip Roth’s death-obsessed 2006 novel, Everyman. It might not have been a singing voice, but it was a voice worth listening to. “It’s best to give while your hand is still warm,” Streep. Excerpts were paired with four works from composers Pärt, Britten, Shostakovich and Schubert, performed by the Takács Quartet at Streep’s side. It was a solemn, meditative evening devoted to the examination of life through death. It explored the bittersweet process of growing old and weighing the marks of life’s purpose against death’s ultimate finality. As a writer, Roth writes exceptionally well for women. The words transcended to become stories about all of us; Everyman.

As previously reported, “Suffragette” has opened yesterday’s BFI London Film Festival. There has been a lot of bad press towards the film (not to confuse with actual critics who have seen and enjoyed the film) and online hysteria regarding the Time Out London photoshoot, and I’m going to write more about it this weekend (or probably just ignore it), but for now, let’s celebrate the film’s premiere with pictures from the photocall, press conference and premiere. There’s more to come, so check back soon.

On Wednesday, Tom Brokaw was honored for his continued contributions to the always-anticipated Mostly Mozart Festival each year at Lincoln Center. His introduction was given by Meryl Streep. “As a journalist, Tom has not only reported and delivered the news, but he has represented a certain kind of authority in our culture. Like a dad, he explains stuff to you without talking down to you. Or, when he was younger, a super smart, super straight-shooting, reliable friend. A narrator of our lives,” Ms. Streep said during her introduction. “Although he has received more awards, and more accolades, than anybody in his profession,” she later added in closing with a laugh, just before folding her speech papers into Mr. Brokaw’s breast pocket. “May I say, as someone with deep experience in this area, just one more isn’t going to kill you!” Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery, with many many thanks to my friend Claudia.
