Fifteen minutes and counting

by

The man who famously predicted that in the future everyone would be famous for 15 minutes is still enjoying his. The Metropolitan Museum of Art keeps the ball rolling with “Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years” (Sept. 18-Dec. 31). The show plumbs the artist’s influence in 45 of his own works, juxtaposed with 100 by some 60 contemporary artists.

Goddess

by

This month marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death and there are, not surprisingly, any number of new books and articles that would pluck at the heart of her mystery, so to speak – including Andrew Hansford and Karen Homer’s eye candy, “Dressing Marilyn” (Applause Theatre & Cinema Books), about William Travilla’s costume designs for the actress; and Lois Banner’s feminist reevaluation, “Marilyn Monroe: The Passion and the Paradox” (Bloomsbury). There’s also the soap operatic (read: addictive as a box of Godiva) NBC drama “Smash,” about the making of a Marilyn musical, and the recent “My Week With Marilyn,” in which Michelle Williams poignantly embodied rather than impersonated her.

Greek to him

by

Chef Rui Correia is making quite a habit of this: The owner of Douro Restaurant Bar in Greenwich is set to appear on the “Today” show once again Aug. 24. The dishy Chef Rui, who’s just back from Greece, will prepare a dish with a Greek flair. Douro and Chef Rui – who’ve both been featured in WAG’s sister publication the Fairfield County Business Journal – are, however, actually Portuguese. (The Douro is a river in Portugal.) Looks like he’s got both ends of the Mediterranean covered.
