“Royal Pains” Star Mark Feuerstein Joining Natalie Portman Limited Series at Apple TV (Exclusive)


Mark Feuerstein is one of Hollywood’s hardest working actors. He starred in the TV series, “Royal Pains,” on USA Network for 8 seasons. He just wrapped two seasons of “The Baby Sitters Club” with Alicia Silverstone on Netflix, and two more seasons of “Power Book II: Ghost” on Starz.

On Saturday night I ran into Mark with his charming parents and brother all dining at Nick and Toni’s in Easthampton. Mark informs me that he’s joined the cast of a new limited series on Apple TV Plus called “The Lady in the Lake” starring two Oscar winners– Natalie Portman and Moses Ingram. The director is Alma Ha’rel, who made a sensation directing Shia LaBeouf’s “Honey Boy” film a couple of years ago.

In the Hamptons, Nick and Toni’s is where the stars the power players go. So I wasn’t surprised to find that the table next to the Feuersteins was filled with the Broadway A list. The table itself needed a Playbill of its own! Two Lifetime Tony Award winners — the Shubert Organization’s Robert Wankel and Jujamcyn Theaters’ Paul Libin — Broadway giants were joined by their beautiful wives, Tony winning lighting designer Ken Billington (“Chicago” plus only eight other nominations) and one more special guest: the living legend director and choreographer Susan Stroman. She’s won just five Tony Awards.

Susan’s latest hit, “POTUS,” is finishing its limited run at the Shubert Theater. Her famed Gershwin musical, “Crazy for You,” is having a rave review revival at the Chichester Theater in the UK right now, which means it could be headed back to Broadway soon.

And this all before appetizers were served!

PS On the way out, I spotted comedian and actor Leslie Jordan darting over to a table on the terrace. Quite the scene for one night in the post-pandemic Hamptons!
