STUNNING in “The Social Network,” Jesse Eisenberg, who wrote and stars in the Cherry Lane’s new excellently received production “Asuncion,” did it again. Backstage, opening night, he remained humble. I said the audience loved him. He answered simply: “Well, they were all invited free.” Nervous? “Some things worked right, some didn’t. Each performance is a little different but, no, I wasn’t nervous. And I won’t know about reviews because I never read anything written about me.
“I hope to stay in this until the end of the year, but we have to see how things work out.” And opening-night party plans? “None. Just going with the cast and my friends for a drink in the neighborhood.”
