MacAfrica's Tribeca Soiree

Our Man in the field.

Last night, the notorious NYC nightclub Provocateur was producer Phil Cohen's The Road With In. The film opens 4/17/2015 at AMC Theatres. "It is like One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest if the (patients) had escaped," is how supermodel emeritus Carol Alt described the film, which stars Kyra Sedgwick, Zoe Kravitz and Dev Patel. Phil Cohen gave tantalizing details about first meeting director Gren Wells, only to add, "and that's all I'm going to tell you unless you buy a ticket." Can I quote you on that? "Yes," both he and Carol Alt said in near-sultry unison. Provocateur, provocative.

Over by the bar was Nick Loeb, who had a rough day in the New York tabloids. I wanted to ask him about it but he said, "I don't talk to press." Understandable. Later in the evening as the crowd gobbled up the amazing hors d'oeuvres prepared by celebrity chef Diane Dimeo before they got to our table, Loeb gave my date some pizza. Even in the midst of a tabloid storm Nick Loeb is a gentleman. Ivy Silberstein, who threw the party, mingled about in glorious triumph.

Also in attendance: Elisa Jordana, Emily Gordon, Hash Halper, Andrea Beecher and Randy Jones of the Village People.
