A Visit To The Real Winnie-The-Pooh In NYC

L1000381

A lover of children’s literature, A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh books were always in heavy rotation in my library as a child, and the cartoons played pretty much on repeat on our trusty VHS player.  That being said, I never pondered much on the origins of the 1920′s series, basically assuming it was the fictional creation of […]

Intermission: Aladdin

The very first movie my mom ever took me to see in theaters as a kid was The Jungle Book, setting the stage for my love of all things Disney and musical.  In 1992, the Disney version of Aladdin came to the screen, and my siblings and I must have watched that VHS copy, oh, […]

The Big List Of New York City

It’s been on my “to do” list for a while to make one huge, comprehensive list of all my favorite NYC sites and blogs.  So when I got a Facebook message from a reader this weekend saying that not only had all the best NYC sites been included in one bookmark, but UsedYorkCity was included […]

Intermission: Bullets Over Broadway

unnamed-7

You would think a show so tellingly titled “Bullets Over Broadway” would fit the “Great White Way” smoother then Cinderella’s glass slipper. It’s not that it lacks for an evening of entertainment – especially strong are the formidable dance numbers. Yet ultimately you leave the theater puzzled (“Huh?”) rather then pleased (“Wow!”) For those of […]

“I urge you to hold tight to the banister as you walk up the stairs, just like Louis did for almost 30 years.  It’s the closest you’ll get to touching the legend.” …So starts the tour of Louis Armstrong’s house in Corona, Queens.  Unlike a lot of other museums in New York, this is the […]

With just about a month left to go before the Tony Awards (by far our favorite award show here at UsedYorkCity!), we wanted to roundup a few of our favorite on and off Broadway shows that we’ve been personal fans of this season, many of which are nominated for quite a few Tony’s!  And the […]

Reflections On The 11th Annual Bosnian Herzegovinian Film Festival

I spent a good portion of this past weekend practicing Bosnian, guys!  (Remember that tiny ambitious goal from last year that I still haven’t checked off yet?  Fail, I know.)  BUT…I spent several hours immersed in the language at the 11th Annual Bosnian Herzegovinian Film Festival, so we’ll consider that a win! This year’s festival […]

Intermission: The Cripple Of Inishmaan

TCOI

Sometimes less is more, so I’m gonna keep it simple,  skip a clever intro and cut right to the chase….The Cripple of Inishmaan IS ONE  FINE PLAY. Theater is obviously a highly collaborative art form, but if you don’t have a good plot, you don’t have a play. You can dress a show with wonderful sets, […]
