A Strange Thing Happened On The Way To A Twitter Chat

By |December 4th, 2017|

Yesterday was a strange day. Well, the last month or so has been strange, but yesterday, particularly so. For the first time in a long time, I participated in a Twitter chat. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically when you follow a […]

An August Beginning: Jitney at The Samuel J. Freidman Theatre

By |January 20th, 2017|

Last night, the New York theatre community welcomed the first (and ironically, the last) of August Wilson’s plays to Broadway. Jitney, one of Wilson’s 10 plays sharing a universal, yet intimate tale of African-American life throughout the 20th century, was the first chapter in this […]

Sunday In The Park On A Wednesday

By |October 31st, 2016|

I’d be ill-equipped to share a proper review of a very special presentation of this beloved modern theater favorite featuring a star-studded cast, but I’m sure as hell going to tell everyone I had the good luck to see it! So forgive me if I […]

By |June 27th, 2016|

When I heard the news that the Broadway tour-de-force, Shuffle Along, was set to close on July 24th — a full 2 months earlier than its original closing date in September — I, along with so many others, immediately shouted “Why!?” How can such a work […]

#TonysSoDiverse … And They Were … But

By |June 13th, 2016|

Although yesterday’s news headlines were dominated by tragedy, I’m happy to inject a little bit of light, beauty and art into the ether and share my respect and appreciation for the darn-near flawless awards ceremony that was the 70th Annual Tony Awards that took place […]

She Loves Me … Times Two

By |May 2nd, 2016|

I originally treated myself to the Roundabout Theatre’s production of She Loves Me on my birthday back in March, but a weird twist of fate (along with my greedy need to see if I can win tickets through TodayTix) gave me a second opportunity to […]

Now That Was A Thing!

By |April 15th, 2016|

March has come and gone, and April is about half over, yet somehow I feel like I’m still recuperating from my birthday month-long arts & culture extravaganza. “Extravaganza” may seem a bit strong of a word, but trust me, anything less would not do.

As I […]

My Year in Art & Culture (2015)

By |December 7th, 2015|

Here we are again about to welcome in a new year. But as I’m wont to do, let’s take a look back at this crazy year and assess where I’ve been in the world of arts and culture.

If you recall last year, I had an eclectic […]

I Know What You Did Last October (Berman, Zola & Brooks)

By |November 10th, 2015|

It’s no surprise to anyone that NYC is brimming with guest lecturers and book signings to feed its massive bookworm population. And it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that someone who has met authors as varied as Ray Bradbury, Vanessa Garcia, Barbara Ehrenreich […]
