summer’s almost gone
This weekend is the unofficial end of summer and though we hope the weather will stay summer-y for awhile, we’re getting ready for the autumn chill, sweater weather and piles of fallen leaves. (Okay, its NYC, so maybe not so much with the leaves). And of course all the shows, shows, shows. Ever since August turned into a festival of theater festivals, the shift into fall has been less dramatic. In some ways, its a relief because instead of festivals you can just keep your eyes peeled for individual shows.
Some of the shows we’re going to try and see in the next few weeks include Radiohole‘s reworking of Radiohole is Still My Name at the Collapsable Hole, The Butane Group’s reworking of The Loneliness of Noam Chomsky (which we wrote about back in february) and Orpheus (starring Taylor Mac) at HERE; Tim Miller’s Us and The Civilians’ Nobody’s Lunch at Performance Space 122. Also, we were at the NYU Small Business Expo hawking our wares, seated next to the folks from Playwrights Horizons who are giving good early word about People Be Heard so we’ll try and see that. And in October there will be another musical with “people” in the title: People Are Wrong at The Vineyard. If you saw it at Joe’s Pub or P.S. 122 you know that it’s a great show so you’ll want to see this fully staged version.
We’re still going through all the listings and press releases to pick more shows. Got any recommendations? Post a comment here.
