‘Intimate’ opening hits close to heart

Celebs enjoy legiter's L.A. bow

HOLLYWOOD — Thursday night’s Mark Taper opening of “Intimate Apparel” was indeed an an intimate affair. Star Viola Davis, who came West with the rest of the Broadway company, said the play’s theme of women searching for love probably affects single women the most.

“There is still a part of you in 2004 that feels you’re incomplete,” she said. “No matter how successful a woman is, there’s a basic need for love and intimacy.”

Among those basking in the love at the Impressario after-party were opening nighters Angela Bassett and Courtney Vance and Meredith Baxter, along with Center Theater Group’s Gordon Davidson, playwright Lynn Nottage and director Daniel Sullivan.
