New York -- The sweetest space cadet you'll ever meet is Miriam, the spunky heroine of a warm-hearted new play, "7th Monarch." The intriguing drama by Jim Henry, detailing several mysteries surrounding once-promising math whiz Miriam, is currently running in a compelling, finely-acted production off-Broadway at Theatre Row.
We first see Miriam (a remarkable, touching performance by Gretchen Hall) wearing her personal space helmet, dedicating a time capsule to her missing parents on a cliff in the middle of the night. In her early thirties, she's friendly, personable and sharp-witted, although oddly childlike and disconnected, with terrible social skills.
Miriam is accused of fraud by a Social Security office criminal investigator, Raina, (Leslie Hendrix, stern, yet not unsympathetic), for signing her missing parents' government checks during the past few months.

Community 3.17 "Basic Lupine Urology" Recap

"Community" is paying tribute to one of NBC's biggest franchises, "Law & Order." In "Basic Lupine Urology" (Thurs., April 26, 8 p.m. Et on NBC), the group's science experiment is sabotaged, prompting Troy (Donald Glover) and Abed (Danny Pudi) to go into full "Law & Order" mode.
Once the "Order" part is done and the two think they've discovered the culprit, "Law" begins with "The Wire" actor Michael K. Williams serving as judge ... reluctantly. Leslie Hendrix, a veteran of "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Svu" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" also guest stars. Hendrix played Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers in more than 250 episodes across the "Law & Order" franchise. Like any typical "Law & Order" episode, there are twists and turns as Jeff (Joel McHale) eventually realizes the plot is a lot thicker than anybody suspects.
