It’s my fourth day in Florida. While I’m reveling in the break from the constant hustle and bustle of life in the big city, I have to admit… a part of me misses my postage-stamp apartment and all of the goings-on of the New York summer. So, I’ve decided that while I’m away this month, I’ll include lists of activities I’d be participating in were I in Brooklyn. Go, see, experience, enjoy.
New York City: Day 281
Lutz, Florida: Day 4
This doesn’t start until next weekend, but everyone in the area should check out Poliglot Theatre’s NEITHER HEAVEN NOR EARTH. I hear that the majority of the script comes from interviews done in Israel and the West Bank and focuses on life under occupation.
The cast contains multiple students and graduates of The New School for Drama– notably my dear friend and rising 3rd Year Actor Gokcen Gokcebag and recently graduated Ema Lakovic, who joined my class every Tuesday morning for Neutral American Speech. Both are fantastic, as are the other NSD kids involved with the show. I so wish I was in town to see this, but you should go! Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?showcode=NEI5 The show runs June 11th – 26th at our very own theatre at The New School for Drama– 151 Bank Street, 3rd Floor.
Tonight, were I in New York, I’d be checking out the sneak preview of The Neistat Brothers, a series of short experimental films made my brothers of the same name. It’s going down tonight at 8 at the Pier at Solar One– East 23rd Street on the East River. Check out the official site: http://rooftopfilms.com/blog/2010/05/neistat-brothers-sneak-preview.html
So. You in New York City. Check these things out. Because I can’t. You should check this out, too because it’s a bit of advertising genius. And it’s beautiful. And Walt Whitman is pretty cool. Just watch:
