I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

After exploring the relationship between girls and power in Julius Caesar and sex and power in The Maid’s Tragedy, Pocket Universe turns its attention to the power of perspective in this new adaptation of Shakespeare’s most famous work; and how, as time and humanity evolve, the classics are received today.

9A) Between the Threads Comes to HERE
145 6th Ave.
(Between Dominick and Spring Street)
New York, NY

January 18 - February 10

The World Premiere of Between the Threads will play at HERE, January 18 - February 10, with Opening Night slated for January 25. The production is directed by Coral Cohen who also conceived the piece, and features original music by Violinist Zoë Aqua. The limited run features an all-female-identified cast who helped develop the piece, and creative team.

Between the Threads is a devised theatre piece about Jewish women in America exploring their relationship to their Judaism. What does it mean to be part of a tiny minority with a disproportionate representation in the national consciousness? How does our identity as Jews intersect with our identities as women? How important is our Judaism to our lives now? What is our responsibility as a historically oppressed people in the face of blatant injustice in our own country, and injustice done in our name in another?

The production features a group of six female-identified artists who explore their personal history to present a collage of varied perspectives on what it means to be perennially in-between: in the intersection of tradition and modernity, power and oppression.

Performances take place at HERE (between Dominick & Spring Street), 145 6th Avenue, New York City, NY 10013. Subways: C/E to Spring Street, 1 to Houston, N/R to Prince Street. Tickets are $25 (general), $15 (students/seniors) and are available at www.here.org or by calling 212-352-3101. Running time: 75 minutes. This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: a curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.

2162 Broadway
New York, NY

The World Premiere is directed by Melissa Crespo with Opening Night slated for January 19. The limited run features a gender bending cast of 7 actors who have numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway credits.

Inspired by the true story of New York City midwife and abortionist, Ann Trow Lohman, WICKEDEST WOMAN follows the epic story of Lohman’s life in the 1800’s. Known as “Madame Restell,” when Lohman started performing abortions in 1838, they were legal in the US. When she committed suicide, almost 40 years later at the end of her career, they were illegal. WICKEDEST WOMAN follows Lohman’s rise to notoriety and her struggle to keep her life intact as the scrutiny and even physical danger became ever more intense. A story about the history of abortions, reproductive rights, and a forgotten legacy. 

Tickets are $35 and are available at www.wickedestwomantheplay.com. Performances take place at the WP Theater, 2162 Broadway (between 76th & 77th Street), New York, NY, 10024. Subways: 1/2 to 79th Street, B/C to 81st Street. Running time: 90 minutes.

12B) World Premiere of
Eco Village
by Phoebe Nir
January 15 - February 16, 2019
at The Theatre at St. Clement's

The world premiere of the new off-Broadway play Eco Village has found its cast and design team. Loosely based on the experiences of playwrightPhoebe Nir at the Bread and Puppet Theater, Eco Village explores the complexities of community and the boundaries of human behavior. The show will play at The Theatre at St. Clement's, 423 W. 46th Street, New York, NY 10036 from January 15-February 16 2019. Eco Village will preview from January 15-21, with opening night on January 24.

When temporarily homeless Robin hitchhikes her way to an eco-village seen online, all she wants is a warm meal, a place to sleep, and some new friends. Instead, she finds a parallel universe, where survival skills and New Age optimism are blended together. When Robin falls for Jake, a brilliant but tormented handyman, their connection sets off a series of events that reveal the limits of human connection and the costs of utopia.

Please note that the Theatre at St. Clement's is not wheelchair accessible. The theater is located up a flight of stairs.
