Halley Feiffer ’07 was recently interviewed by the New York Times for her role in the new film “He’s Way More Famous Than You.” Halley has written two plays opening this Fall: “How to Make Friends and Then Kill Them” at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of New York City” at the Stella Adler Studio.
Although the on- and off-screen Halley share the same bewitching nasal laugh, rockin’ bod and boozy back story, the real-life Halley — her celebrity friendships intact — is a writer bee who has two plays opening this fall…
It’s in her genes: Her father is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer and her mother is the monologuist Jenny Allen.
“They’re very supportive on a broad spectrum, whether it’s a movie I’m acting in or a 10-minute play that’s being performed for eight people on 36th Street at 2 o’clock on a Sunday,” she said. “And they understand my humor, obviously, since it’s their humor too.”
