Person Place Thing Episode 60: Martha Plimpton

Jan 30, 2014

She began by working in movies she was too young to attend then later appeared on stage in musicals (Pal Joey) and straight plays (The Coast of Utopia). Now she stars in "Raising Hope" on Fox Television. Also impressive: how she uses her copious free time. The advocacy organization "A Is For..." is an expression of her commitment to women's rights. Her Twitter feed is a beacon of progressive politics - vigorous but not too snarky. Just snarky enough. Her affection for her neighborhood, the Upper West Side, is stirring.

  • PERSON: her nana, Beatrice Spier
  • PLACE: the Upper West Side from 72nd to 116th
  • THING: this lemon lamp
  • RANDY'S PLACE: the emergency room of NYU Medical Center
