On May 21, Adam Horovitz hosted an invitation-only event at Manhattan's Westside Theater for the New York Playwrights Lab, an organization founded by his father, playwright Israel Horovitz. The event, titled "Ex-Lovers," was performances of 8 ten-minute plays written by members of the Playwrights Lab.
The invitation noted there would be a "special celebrity-guest host." Special, indeed! "Ex-Lovers" was billed as "sexy, provocative, upsetting, and very, very funny." Sounds like Mike D's cup of tea!
The younger Horovitz told the New York Observer, "I'm 41, and my whole life I've been going to see his plays...[The lab is] just all these writers, and they keep in touch and they work every week; it's friends together being creative. Its reminiscent of writers' salons and shit. People don't really seem to do that anymore. It's cool."
