Chatting up Amy Poehler at a downtown premiere

I had the great occasion of talking to former "Saturday Night Live" star Amy Poehler at the after-party of new musical Minsky's Friday night.

She was lovely and was there, no doubt, to cheer on her fellow "SNL" peep Rachel Dratch, who has a hilarious role in the show.

I wanted to know more about Poehler's video series Smart Girls at the Party, which I had blogged about in November. She assured me there's more to come and was very enthusiastic about the project. "Soon," she said. And I have to admit, I'm pretty excited.

If you don't know the series, Amy interviews girls who are active in projects like writing, dancing and even feminism. Having a daughter myself, it's really nice to see women -- famous women -- who want to shine a spotlight on young girls. Looking forward to what's next.

In the meantime, if you haven't seen the videos, which I originally found on Mommy Track'd, you can find them at On Networks.

And if you haven't seen Minsky's, which is downright fun, I'd get a ticket quick -- while it's still in Los Angeles.

Thanks for the tip ~ Hicham treated me to this show for my birthday last night after I complained while reading this post that we never go to the theater! :-)
