Pull out the Pimms!  Pop the Champagne! The idle rich are in full throttle at New York’s Arclight Theatre on West 71st Street.     It is 1919 and that ultimate gentlemen’s gentleman, alongside his dense albeit well intentioned employer- respectively known as Jeeves and Wooster- are in residence by way of a delicious presentation […]

As a lover of all things New York and all things travel, I was particularly excited to join the Workshop Theater Company last Thursday evening for the world premiere of Gary Giovannetti’s Tarragona, which held both of these elements and so much more.     We open to the scene of a NYC office and meet […]

Experience The Best Live Radio Theatre In Gotham City

Present Laughter

I was recently on the F train, and overheard a group of tourists discussing how they were in search of an “authentic NYC theater experience.”  The debate was between seeing The Jersey Boys or Phantom of the Opera.  Now, I’ll be the first to say I adore both of those shows to the ends of […]

Wander Off-Broadway And Experience The Affordable Side Of Theater

The ladies from "I

When I moved to the Big Apple in 2005, one of my driving forces for coming to this great metropolis was to indulge in theater.  You can imagine my initial disapointment when I realized that, even utilizing the TKTS discounted stand, I would still be shelling out upwards of $70 to get a seat in […]

The FringeNYC Festival Presents “Hadrian’s Wall”

I have been very fortunate to visit many of the world’s magnificent ancient sites — from the balanced rock display of England’s Avebury, to the classical Parthenon in Athens. Now ‘fess up folks…while surrounded by massive ruins, you can’t help but think about owning your own tiny piece of history. A teeny little rock from […]

With New York City being the mecca of all things theater, it’s hard to discern what shows to spend your time and money on.  Between Broadway, Off-Broadway, dance, music, improv…it’s almost too much to sort through.  That, my friends, is why we’re here.  To lead you in the direction of the not-to-be-missed shows and companies […]

Dancehall Classes With Blacka Di Danca

Blacka Di Danca...he's got energy for days!

Now may be a good time to share that I’m training for this insane race called ToughMudder.  With 12 miles of uphill running and 30 obstacles including fire, ice, and electroshock therapy (not kidding!) I’ve been spending an unusual amount of time searching for NYC workouts that can keep my attention and energy levels on […]

Go Green At “The Greene Space” In SoHo

Members of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will play June 5th (http://www.cpa.psu.edu)

We love our concrete city, our bold cement landscape.  But we admit to our need for some green space, an earthier, more naturalistic setting. It has been proven that green, nature’s dominant shade, is the most soothing color to our eyes for that very reason. But seek out “The Greene Space” down in Soho, and […]

Gotham Radio Theatre Presents “Blithe Spirit”

I was recently in England, engaged in a conversation about the difference between British humour and American humor (note the spelling variations!), and this was what it boiled down to: Americans don’t do irony nearly as well as our English counterparts. Upon getting back in the states, I had the good fortune of being able […]

Dogpatch, USA and its joy-juiced residents are alive again, a kickin’ and a hollerin’ at The Lion Theater in midtown.  A director and choreographer have never made better use of a large cast on a tiny stage in this costumed semi-concert version of “Li’l Abner”, a rarely revived 1956 hit Broadway musical based on the […]
