eightdayralph fiennes Wednesday, July 16thLiam Neeson in the flesh? We’ll take two, please! The blue-eyed Paddy performs Beckett’s Eh Joe, one of three short one-man Beckett works in Lincoln Center Gate/Beckett Festival, imported for our theatrical stimulation from the Gate Theater of Dublin. (Ralph Fiennes will be in First Love later this week; is Lincoln Center trying to make us crazy?). In Eh Joe, Mr. Neeson will sit silently while a woman’s disembodied voice narrates his character’s painful memories. Probably sort of like when he gets yelled at by Natasha Richardson for not doing the dishes.


[Eh Joe, part of the Gate/Beckett festival at the Lincoln Center, Rose Theater, 33 West 60th Street, 7 p.m.,]

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
