Seattle? Who knew?
It's strange the blinders New York-centric artists often have on. I'm certainly guilty of it.
“Two really interesting things I learned about Seattle when I moved here were, this city has fewer churches per capita than any major city, and more bookstores per capita than any major city,” said Mr. Manning of Seattle Rep. “You get on a bus and everyone has a book. It’s a wonderfully literate town, which is fortunate for us in the theater.”
The fact that the New York Times has this listed as a travel article, rather than in the Theater section says quite a bit:
I think a trip might be in order in the new year.
And speaking of holidays, Happy Thanksgiving. Unless you know the farmer, here is where your meat comes from:
"One can measure the greatness and the moral progress of a nation by looking at how it treats its animals” Mahatma Ghandi
I'm happy to announce that the staged readings of Cafe Lysistrata, December 7 and 14 at Theaterlab, 137 West 14th Street in Manhattan, will include accompaniment by a trio of musicians.
