Best photo of me EVER!!!
solid sunday show. congrats to the shivers for winning the deli nyc band of the month!
This sounds awesome! Do they also teach us how to use a sewing machine?
"Terrible Lie" was awesome indeed. This review refers to the tuesday night show...
Can't wait to see former Shotgun Theater Festival Winner "Monkey" by Jim Tierney this week at MRT's Summerfest! Showings are August 26th, 27th and 28th at 9pm. "When a small, sheltered community is infiltrated, the lives of three young girls are irrevocably altered."
I saw the play tonight. I actually sat through the entire play. A complete waste of time! It was one of the most poorly written plays I've ever seen. It was so bad, I couldn't believe it was playing at this theater. There were only 12 people in the audience; not surprising.
After intermission, only one person left. That person probably was related to the show in some way because he purposely sat all the way at the end of the theater. However, the rest of the audience came back, and I know why. All of us had comp tickets!!!! We were "required" to stay for the entire duration of the show and suffer through the horrible thing. The premise of the plot sounded intriguing, but the actual storyline itself was uninteresting and a complete let down. It took 50 minutes to build up some sort of suspense/mystery that never lead to anything of substance at the end.
The tone of the play was absolutely flat and boring. I left the theater wondering how something like this could ever be produced in the first place. I mean, you couldn't pay me to see it a second time!
Yech! Cliches abound in Wry Middle Aged Man tries to get Radical/Liberal Sister together with Conservative Sister. Cultural and political references as a substitute for plot and human interest were particularly tiresome, e.g. "you sound like Talk Radio!" or "I can involve you in Save the Whales....!" I qualify that my wife and I left at Intermission --we were both utterly bored. So, it's theoretically possible that the second act was better. Though due to the complete lack of originality, interest or quality writing in the first half, I doubt it.
The greatest name ever for a comedy show!!
Very perceptive remarks - the show is definitely one to see. David Cohen
This event is going to be incredible. Please note though that Revolution Books moved one year ago to:
146 W. 26th Street, between 6th and 7th Ave.
can you think of a rapper more associated with a neighborhood than the Blastmaster and the South Bronx?
"Brooklyn keeps on taking it"
Funny, funny show. The actors had show much energy on stage running around back and forth it made me breathless.
If want to skip the what's been an unusually bad movie season and see a great live show, this is it. $20 in NYC to see these talented performers is a steal.
This is as good as it gets. A sunny outdoor afternoon in Bryant Park, and five New Yorkers-cum-authors speaking out about subways, waxing poetic about the 70s, and why they love secret spaces:

Roger Cohen’s responses to moderator Shaul Bakhash were deeply personal first-hand accounts of his days in Iran immediately following the election. Cohen began by calling journalists “serial voyeurs,” a term that emphasizes a sort of distance— a distance that became impossible to maintain as he bore witness to the beating of women during the violent repression of Iranian protests in Tehran. Cohen admitted that there have been a few times in his career when he has been “ambushed” by a story: “it happened to me in Bosnia 15 years ago, and it certainly happed to me in Iran.”
Haleh Esfandiari, while speaking in a less personal tone--not surprising,considering the nature of her imprisonment-- gave great insight into the mind of Iranian intelligence officers, while Karim Sadjadpour discussed the difference between the ruling elite of today and the elite in the time of the Shah--a critical difference that could have repercussions for the future of Iran:

I'm looking forward to 9/10: A Trilogy, which deals with the phenomenon of PRESCIENCE; the unknowable future. Prescience asks the question: Where were YOU the night before the 9/11 attacks?....
Some terrific acting, and the story itself would make The Sex Pistols and Bret Easton Ellis proud.
I love this book! I have enjoyed Jancee Dunn's other work, and this book is every bit as good as the rest. It is so nice to remember that getting older can be fun and humorous!
I got my copy at www.booksonboard.com They have great sales on new release titles and with their rewards program, the book is actually cheaper than B&N! Anyone who likes eBooks should check it out.
Few can make romantic comedy as well as the French, and this charming film is a fine example. Nearly everything about it works, and its stars, Marion Cotillard (who won last years Academy Award for Best Actress for La Vie en Rose) and Vincent Elbaz, are so charismatic and beautiful that just watching them perform (and well!) should be enough. But there's plenty more. This was never released to theaters or DVD in the US, so here's your chance to see a really fun film about love -- and fear of flying.
