‘Intrigue’ among us

Writer-producer sez project created from real life

Kate Robin didn’t exactly put the tube aside for “Intrigue With Faye” — her play features two TV friendly thesps and a giant video screen.

At Thursday night’s preem, the “Six Feet Under” writer-producer revealed that her plotline for “Faye” was plucked from real life.

“Back in ’91, I videotaped my boyfriend for 24 hours,” she said. It didn’t save the relationship. “There have been many boyfriends since then.”

“Faye” star Julianna Margulies said she didn’t mind being occasionally upstaged by the MCC production’s huge video screen: “I never feared competing with the video, just operating it.”

She and her costar, Benjamin Bratt, appeared very chummy at the West Bank Cafe post-preem party. Same could not be said for MCC’s last star couple, Sigourney Weaver and Liev Schreiber, who appeared this winter in Neil LaBute‘s “The Mercy Seat” and spent Thursday evening dodging each other in the intimate spaces of the Acorn Theater and the West Bank.

Also keeping their distance at the fete were Famke Janssen and Gretchen Mol, who is engaged to Janssen’s ex, Kip Williams.
