This from David Pincus:
Last week, Community Board 5 unanimously passed a resolution drafted by
its Arts Task Force, under the leadership of David Diamond, calling for
City and State Agencies to recognize the value that Small to Mid-Sized
Theaters add to the financial and community stability of New York City
In addition, this week's edition of New York Press has a feature article
on the State of Small to Mid-Sized Theaters, which provides an excellent
overview of the problems and positive strategies that some theaters are
employing in order to stay vital to their artistic missions.
Please read and pass this link along:
So the Community Boards keep stepping up.
And in New York Magazine, Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin are talking about Waiting for Godot and Lane quotes Elaine Stritch:
“Oh, Nathan, if that play isn’t funny, it’s one long fucking night in the theater.”
Words that should be printed on the first page of every published copy of that play.
It's Monday morning and we've got Dylan playing over the loudspeakers of the Museum. Listening to the Bootleg Series Vol. 3 and for my money the best song on any of the volumes, Blind Willie McTell.
God is in his heaven and we all want what's his
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
Our troubadour stands at the window of which hotel when these words come out of his mouth?
1. St. James Hotel
2. Clarendon Hotel
3. Heartbreak Hotel
4. Golden Gate Hotel
Losers get their big plantations burned down, winners get to strut their feathers well.
