One of My Favorite Things: soft at the MCC Theater

When it comes to this theater group, I have so many favorite things. Most of my favorite things have to do with people interaction and the show going experiences, but the exercise of picking a show is also one of my favorite things. I really love unearthing and selecting shows that the group might not otherwise see or hear about, like soft @ the MCC…

Hamlet: A Most Definite TO BE Experience

The second Robert Icke’s modern, shiny, and multi sensory interpretation of Hamlet began I was enthralled and swept into the show from the very first minute to the last…

New York City – So Absolutely Not Dead

I wonder what all of those people who wrote all of those doom and gloom articles and posts about New York City being dead are doing these days? Writing retractions? Finding some other negativity to spew into the world? Who, in their right mind, would bet against this town that is home to the scrappiest, most resourceful, and creative individuals that can be amassed in one place?

Clyde’s & SIX on Broadway NOW – GO!

This past week we crept back, getting close to hitting our pre-pandemic numbers for theater attendance. As an exercise in collective effervescence the more people that are in the group for our audiences the higher the energy and the more rewarding the experience. This is a good and lovely thing and nothing makes me happier than energy bouncing around on the sidewalk as we prepare to enter the theater.

Quietly Going Back to the Theater with Letters of Suresh

If I had known what a powerful and perfect choice this play was for our group, I would have made more noise about it. You should go experience this play: the words, the premise, the creative use of lighting, and the super hard to pull off, but brilliantly performed monologues.

Going Back to Broadway…Collective Effervescence Personified

On the evening of August 4th, 2021 at 8pm Stacie (my GYGG partner in chief) and I had the good fortune to GO back to BROADWAY. Doors that had been shuttered for some 500 days were flung wide open at the August Wilson Theater to welcome us and our fellow giddy audience members back to the theater in the form of a play called Pass Over….

My Name Is Linda and I Have a Story

Laura Linney is able to memorize and deliver words in a most astounding and authentic fashion as she so remarkably demonstrates in her one-woman carefully constructed and brilliantly delivered performance in My Name is Lucy Barton. If you love Laura Linney, you must GO see her in this play. This post, however, is not about that performance. Rather it has to do with a story around the show. This post is about – eeh gads – karma…
