ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Strange as ever in 'Strangers'

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Been missing Jerri Blank the fortysomething ex-con, ex-junkie psycho woman-child returning to high school to clean up her act, played so expertly by Amy Sedaris in the cult Comedy Central series "Strangers With Candy"?

Miss her or not, she's baaaack! A new big screen take on "Strangers" continues its run at the Doris Duke Theatre today at 1 and 7:30 p.m. The premise is the same. Sedaris still makes Jerri as icky as ever. The fan club should have a field day.

FINAL WORD

"I wore a gold bikini a lot, and I found that when I put it on, I played guitar better. Yeah. The power of the bikini."
