Yesterday we wondered what the hell Jeremy Piven was doing hanging with a bunch of 5th graders after he tweeted about an upcoming middle school play he was nervous about. Who lets let Ari Gold near their children? Without any context, this news was funny and absurd. Of course, that was before someone sent us the footage of Jeremy’s performance, which involved a lot of contact dance and karate moves.
Weird, and kind of adorable, right? But it’s still a long way back to Broadway, Jeremy, and starting over with some kid’s rendition of Day Man isn’t going to convince us that you’re ready to put down the sushi and do live theater again. Good start though.
