Steven Soderbergh’s new play The Library opened in New York City last night, and it was such an important and magical evening that it even managed to bring Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones back together. This miracle of modern love reminded us that the couple had announced its separation almost eight months ago, and it helped show us all that nothing is ever bad enough to make two married actors, 25-years apart in age, simply call it quits after all this time. When it comes to why they decided to give it another shot, I have two theories. First, they realized the impact that a divorce could have on their young children, and no difference is big enough to get in the way of providing a happy and healthy family. Second, they realized nobody gave much of a shit that they split up in the first place, so just like the general apathy surrounding their first announcement, here they are trying to get a little attention again. I really can’t put my finger on which one it is, though.
